Since I've already filled this journal with lots of complaints about my stupid job and my stupid chest cold, I'll spare you and give you this fandom meme instead. I'll try and blog some more cheerful things after I get off from work tonight! (Because hahahah, spoiler alert: I have no plans. I never do because I hate New Years celebrations.)

1. Your main fandom of the year: I rediscovered Sailor Moon and blogged the hell out of it on my Tumblr. (Especially after I saw the lack of Nephrite/Naru spam on the site. I WAS FILLED WITH RAGE, and then I got off my lazy ass and did it myself.) So there's that.

2. Your favorite Film this year: For films released this year, I've ... surprisingly seen quite a few of them! Scott Pilgrim, How To Train Your Dragon, Despicable Me, Toy Story 3, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Out of all of those, I have to say that Toy Story 3 was my favorite, purely for the nostalgia factor and how it broke my heart. As for movies I've seen generally the whole year, it's a tie between The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Star Trek.

3. Your favorite Book read this year: Unfortunately I haven't gotten much reading done this year. :/ I'm starting to get back into the groove, though. I read "Lighthousekeeping" by Jeanette Winterson this year, and everyone should read at least one of her books because she's amazing. ("Written on the Body," if you're looking for a specific recommendation from me.)

4. Your favorite Album or Song this year: Somehow I ended up loving a lot of Lady Gaga! Which I didn't expect because her song "Just Dance" annoyed me when it came out. And even that grew on me.

5. Your favorite TV Show this year: I discovered How I Met Your Mother. And Community. AMAZING, I ACTUALLY WATCHED TV SHOWS THAT AREN'T CARTOONS OR ANIME THIS YEAR.

6. Your favorite LJ Community this year: Uh. idk. None in particular.

7. Your best new Fandom Discovery of the Year? ...Good question! Revolutionary Girl Utena was my earliest, and I'm so glad I waited until I was older to watch it. I didn't really know what to feel after watching it the first time around, but then my love for it smacked me right in the face a few weeks later. Other discoveries include Baccano! and Toradora! And I also got around to reading the entire manga of Full Metal Alchemist. It's much more satisfying than the first anime series. (a-and Harvest Moon games apparently are the bestest things. Don't judge me.)

8. Your biggest Fandom Disappointment of the Year? Final Fantasy XIII. Was it a good game? Yes. Was it a good Final Fantasy game? Hell no.

9. Your TV Boyfriend of the year: Um, does this mean favorite male character or something along those lines? Whatever, I'ma just put Sazh from Final Fantasy XIII here because I think he deserved better than the fandom he's stuck in.

10. Your TV Girlfriend of the year: Orihime! Why do I keep falling back in love with you? And Anthy! You're so confusing, yet I adore you for that.

11. Your biggest Squee moment of the year? As [ profile] escalove already said, the end of FMA. Both sad yet so freaking happy it ended the way it did.

12. Your most Missed Old Fandom? Sailor Moon. Come on, Funimation, redub it already! It deserves it.

13. Your Fandom that you haven't Tried Yet, but want to: I can't think of any in particular. Anything that I want to try, I go ahead and do it in the moment, and drop it very quickly if I don't like it.

14. Your Biggest Anticipations of the New Year: Avatar: The Legend of Korra!

I've only just started writing the drabbles that [ profile] cheriestar gave me, but I'll post the meme now in case anyone else wants to hit it up.

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and write a drabble about (each of) the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

I got the following icons. When I finished writing a drabble for them, I'm going to post them at [ profile] pwnworks and link to the stories through the icons. It's ah, going to take me a little bit to get them all written since I haven't touched fanfiction in ages. :D;


Happy New Years!
