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.

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!

Funny about Casual Vacancy. I read the Kindle sample, but still haven't gotten the book. I found it interesting and deftly written, and I wanted to know what happened next, but I didn't find it as enjoyable as the HP series - maybe because it's rather dark, maybe because I didn't fall in love with any of the characters. I still plan to read it someday, but I don't feel the compulsion to read it right away.

Since they're doing a tv version of it, I definitely intend to read it before it airs. But that gives me about a year of leeway!

I LOVED Across the Universe! Haven't had time to read the sequel yet unfortunately (too many ARCs I have to review), but it's on my list!

The third part is coming out in a few weeks, so you'll be able to read one right after the other when you do!

Once again it sucks to live in Denmark - it doesn't arrive here until May 2nd. Thank goodness for my Kindle! (Buying physical books off amazon.com isn't feasible due to the ridiculous VAT+Taxes+Custom fees being added - I'd end up paying 3x for it)

You know, I don't think I ever realized how much into Avengers you were ^^ I feel bad not noticing that!
Hope 2013 is awesome for you (2013... needs a Hobbit added to it. My father made that joke and it took me far to long to get it. Still not sure if it's funny, but I pass it one)

OMG I was ridiculous in April and May - I did the whole marathon, and that was my third time seeing it! And I watched it again two days ago. Awwww, such a perfectly awesome film.

Of course Cabin Pressure counts! Martin Crieff is my primary fandom boyfriend.

Awesome choice! Wish we'd done a photo with you last week with lemons!

I considered it, but as you well recall, you were tracking adolescent boys and I was being pulled, physically, by a child who had never been to Honeydukes before, so I did the on-the-spot mommy prioritization and gave up on that thought!

It was funny for me, I started reading stories before I watched the actual show and a lot of people said that S1 was hard going but I didn't find that at all, possibly because I had built-up affection for the characters going in.

I'll probably be similar - even though I haven't read any actual fics, I've seen enough gif-and-commentary posts to go into it, into it. The last time that happened was Supernatural in January of 2007.

Seconded. I kind of fell into reading all the Teen Wolf stuff at AO3... and that made the show better. But considering that I had trouble telling 2 of the actors apart in S2 (the whole plot line with Peter makes so much more sense when he's NOT SOMEONE ELSE), yeah.

I'm going to say "not the world's best show, but it's where the cool kids of fandom seem to be writing (and therefore where I am lurking).

Long live Heroes Season 1/2. We will try to forget what came after.

There are icons I will never delete because everything about them was so awesome.
(And I won't forget that flashback comic books they released, especially the one with the wrestling.)

So many icons! It's kind of a problem. And yes, wrestling. Thank you for that bit of fanservice. I'm'a just sit here and drool for a while.
