Crossposted from LJ:

Your main fandom of the year? I was as multifandomish as I've been in any recent year, but I was probably mostly Avengers-focused, except for a brief Hunger Games moment.


Your favorite film you watched this year? AVENGERS! I saw it in theaters three times in two and a half days, in two different states, and managed a total of twelve times in theaters before it wrapped up. And I squee-ed every time!


Your favorite book read this year? I started the year reading Beth Revis's Across the Universe, and I can't wait for Shades of Earth next month! (And no, I didn't finish Casual Vacancy; I got strep when I was around a third finished, and wasn't able to concentrate on anything. Hope to finish it during travels in the next month or two.)


Your favorite album or song to listen to this year? iTunes tells me that my most played song that I first listened to in 2012 was fun.'s Some Nights (Intro)/Some Nights, which is one spot ahead of the fun. cover of Call Me Maybe. The original of Call Me Maybe is only a few spots back! So, basically, Top 40 Pop!


Your favorite tv show of the year? Doctor Who's Pond sequence ended wonderfully, with solid episodes, and I loved the three Sherlock eps from back in January. I'm still watching SPN but cannot get used to the Wednesday timeslot and tend to watch it on Friday mornings, still.


I really enjoyed Political Animals (except for the plane crash concept in the final episode) and wish it had been renewed for another season. It worked as a standalone series, though.


Oh, and does UP! With Chris Hayes count? 


Your best new fandom discovery of the year? Does Cabin Pressure count? It made flying actually fun, and funny, and my kids have become fans of it, too. Yellow car!


Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year? Elementary not having a military background for Joan Watson, and not having time to watch either The Hours or Teen Wolf. Political Animals and Leverage not being renewed.


Your fandom boyfriend of the year? Still Tom Hiddleston, unless Neil Finn counts because of the song on the Hobbit soundtrack. (Please, give this man an Oscar nom!)


Your fandom girlfriend of the year? Surprisingly, because I didn't adore her in IM2, I found Natasha utterly awesome in Avengers.


Your biggest squee moment of the year? Going to the sneak preview of Avengers in NYC early in the morning of April 14, almost completely unspoiled (Coulson! Rag-Doll!Loki! Shakespeare in the Park!).


The most missed of your old fandoms? I still miss Heroes S1/2, when it was really good.


The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to? Teen Wolf looks fun, from the gifs I've seen, but I want to have the time to focus on it rather than have it in the background.


Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year? LOKI TWO. Ahem. THOR TWO. Also IM3. More Sherlock, and hopefully something about the DW 50th Anniversary shenanigans!

The info I've been waiting for since APRIL is finally available!

Yes, Avengers will still be in theaters during Ascendio!

So, if you want to go with me on Wednesday the 11th at 12:30 pm (or possibly 6:10 pm if the midday one is totally impossible) please let me know! I don't yet know if it'll be playing on Sunday evening, and I don't think I can get away any other times but I really, really want to see it with (a) fangirls and (b) margaritas!!

I saw Avengers for the second time last night, and had a chance to think through a few theories I've been pondering since I saw it in NYC 10 days back. Said thoughts, primarily about Loki, Coulson and Fury, are here on my DW journal. THEY CONTAIN SPOILERS. 

YOU ARE WARNED. 

If you want more Hiddleston with less spoilers, I found the interview he did on Univision this morning, where he speaks in reasonably passable Spanish! And my review of Avengers on Hypable is here

If you want more Avengers with spoilers, 
here's a still of Loki and Thor with some text.  )

Feel free to be as spoilery as you want in the comments, btw! Wasn't it an amazing movie?
heidi: (Son of Coul)
Don't read unless you've seen Avengers, or are willing to read spoilers for two major plot points, including one that comes in the last five minutes of the film. If you'd rather read my not-very-spoilery review at Hypable, it's here.
Now for the spoilers.  )
