Your main fandom of the year?
Doctor Who. Mostly Classic Who, really, since Twelve didn't come out until the fall and I've been ambivalent on him anyway. But the 50th anniversary special brought my love for the show roaring back, and I spent a lot of 2014 reading Eighth Doctor Adventures novels (I'm up to book 30 of 73!) and watching Third Doctor serials (very slowly), with occasional other things thrown in. Your favorite film watched this year?
The Sum of Us, with Russell Crowe as a young gay man in Australia in the 1990s. Sweet relationship with his dad and
a happy gay ending! And The Rainbow, the coming-of-age story of a young bi woman in 1901 (there's a lot of gay in it for a movie starring the gorgeous young Paul McGann as the het love interest). Your favorite book read this year?
Nonfiction: The Curiosity rover book and the Sally Ride book (my thoughts on same here
Fiction: Ancillary Sword
, tied with the Raksura books by Martha Wells and Courtney Milan's Brothers Sinister series.Your favorite album or song to listen to this year?
Mostly n/a because I'm deaf, but I loved purplefringe
's Doctor/Master vid set to Taylor Swift's "Blank Space"
. I don't really have an opinion on the song, but the vid is brilliant. I've watched it six or seven times at least. Your favorite TV show of the year?
I want to say Doctor Who, but I feel like I haven't been watching Doctor Who television
that much. (Even the Three serials have been one episode at a time separated by weeks.) So probably either Murdoch Mysteries (steampunk cops!) or Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos
? So many tardigrade jokes! Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
Bunnicula! :DYour biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
That I turned out to not totally love Twelve. I really liked that Clara got to be more of a person this year, and I loved several of the episodes, and was surprisingly into the new Master, but the show as a whole and Twelve himself haven't really clicked for me. It's not like I totally hated it. I just hoped to fall in love, and I didn't, largely because I didn't feel like I could emotionally connect with the Doctor. Ah, well. I loved the Christmas special at least.Your fandom boyfriend of the year?
Paul McGann. In many incarnations including the Eighth Doctor. Or possibly the Eighth Doctor and the Third Doctor
making out with each other
.Your fandom girlfriend of the year?
Jade from the Books of the Raksura. Strong and loyal and kind and sensuous and, well, blue... ;-)Your biggest squee moment of the year?
sent me and Mucca a pile of Doctor Who action figures, who have spent fall 2014 climbing all over our coffee table in various poses. (At the moment, Eight and Jack are making out while Three and Sarah Jane are stargazing and Delgado!Master and Jabe set up a picture of a lighthouse and Jamie from "The Doctor Dances" looks on, for the record. I still owe y'all pics.)The most missed of your old fandoms?
Babylon 5. <3 This was the fandom of my heart from some time in 2011 to late 2013, and I will never stop loving it (or its fandom) even though the fannish fires have been banked for now. <3 And on that note, babylon5_love
is setting up a mini-rewatch over here
--go vote on your favourite episodes!The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?
Legend of Korra. I loved AtLA, and have heard good things about Korra, including its ending.
