End of year meme: Fandom Edition!

Your main fandom of the year?
White Collar, by a very long way. I have posted over 100,000 words of fic in this fandom this year! And I completed a Big Bang! I am very proud of this :D

Your favorite film watched this year?
The Hobbit. It was always going to be, really :P But Erebor! And Thranduil! And Thorin!
Contenders were Brave and The Hunger Games. Prometheus does not make the running.

Your favorite book read this year?
The Vorkosigan Saga. Of which my favourite is Memory. These books are so wonderful. And, to quote a friend, "I love everyone! Everyone is a poor darling!"

Your favorite album or song to listen to this year?
'As It Seems' by Lily Kershaw got me through Finals. I have also developed an obsession with Heather Dale. Also The Decemberists and Of Monsters And Men, and I continue to adore Metric, and their new album.

Your favorite TV show of the year?
White Collar yesssss. I have also managed to watch almost every episode with either helle_d or theoret or both of them, and that made every episode even better and more full of squee :) And filled with choruses of, "Oh, Neal." (Also "DianaDianaDiana!")

Your favorite DW/LJ community of the year?
The whitecollarhc and collarcorner prompt memes. I love prompt memes :) For discussion/rage macros, still ontd_political.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
Eternal Lols Law. So it was a brief six episodes, and I think the fandom maxed out with fewer than twenty people, but I regret nothing. Angsty shippy angels being lawyers in York! The mix of utter crack and utter ANGST AND DOOM was wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and love [personal profile] elb for making there be a fandom at all :D

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
BBC Sherlock. Wheeeee, nosedive into misogyny and queerbaiting. I just read my answers to this meme last year, when I was so excited about season 2, and I feel really sad because S2 turned out to be such a grim disillusionment instead :(

Your fandom boyfriend of the year?
(Criminal Minds recent episodes spoilers) I'd have to say Spencer Reid. Who currently has a canon sort-of-girlfriend and yet I'm completely happy with how the relationship is being written and how it actually hasn't yet contradicted my headcanon of him being gay and ace at all. I loved his matter-of-factness to Blake's surprise that he and Maeve were in a relationship without ever meeting in person or even knowing what the other looked like!
I mean, I still adore Neal Caffrey. But I wouldn't be able to date him, which I assume is what this question is about. Anyway, he has Peter and El.

Your fandom girlfriend of the year?
Diana Barrigan, Lin Bei Fong and Cordelia Vorkosigan. (I'm sharing them all with Eleanor anyway, so it's not like I have to pick monogamously :P)

Your biggest squee moment of the year?
If we're talking about decibel volume of squee, several of the White Collar episodes watched with E and T are contenders :P Specifically all of Checkmate, the bit with the photoshoot, and the bit where Neal got shot.
And more personally, I can't quite believe how nice people have been about my White Collar fic! That is definitely a massive, massive squee ♥

The most missed of your old fandoms?
Hmm. I've been nostalgic over SGA a few times this year, mostly because I do miss writing sci-fi. You get to use your imagination so much in terms of what's possible. On the other hand, I like the challenge of writing clever characters and situations where you can't pull magic Ancient tech out of mid-air to save the day *gg*

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?
Elementary. If anyone knows of any gen comms, I'd love if you shared!

Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?
Well, White Collar coming back is clearly the major one! And I'm really looking forward to seeing what Criminal Minds is doing with their current arc — this season is incredibly strong, and actually one of my favourite so far despite my sadness over no more Emily.
Mostly, though, More White Collar!
