1.      Your main fandom of the year: A Song of Ice and Fire (is there anything else? :-))

2.     Your favourite film this year: I saw remarkably few, but Les Misérables was enjoyable.

3.     Your favourite book this year: To my absolute shock and horror I realise I haven’t really read proper books this year! *hangs head in shame* Mostly just ‘stories by unpublished authors over internet’… This has never happened before and this lapse I swear to fix in the upcoming year!

angst LoM

4.      Your favourite album or song this year: Lana Del Rey ‘Born to Die’ (I was so slow to find her…glad that I did, eventually!)

5.     Your favourite TV show this year: I watch horrendously little that either – but ‘Homeland’ and ‘Elementary’ were my staples that I followed faithfully.

6.     Your favourite LJ community this year: Sansa_Sandor of course!

7.     Your best new fandom discovery of the year: Not exactly fandom (?), but if ‘The Shield’ in WWE counts, be it!

8.      Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year: To see otherwise perfectly reasonable appearing people hurting each other in Tumblr over…trivial things.

9.      Your TV/movie boyfriend of the year: Same as last year, Damian Lewis. For example from ‘Homeland’ but also from oh, so many other things. True love doesn’t falter!

10.      Your TV/movie girlfriend of the year: Lucy Liu is a wonderful example of a sensible no-nonsense and yet feminine woman (in ‘Elementary’).

11.     Your biggest squee moment of the year: When I saw that Starbird1 had written a holiday-exchange gift to me filling not one, not two but all three of my wish prompts!

lets go

12.      Your most missed old fandom: Don’t have any…

13.     Your fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to? Same as last year, if there would be a fandom for ‘Devil’s Whore’…I suspect not, as I haven’t found one – also it is only a short TV series/telemovie, so probably doesn’t have the longevity required for a ‘proper’ fandom.


14.      Your biggest anticipation of the New Year: Big things happening at work. Either burn or bust!

15.     Your Writing (if applicable):
15.1.  Total Words: 334,479
Whoa, that many!? The list below shows when a story start was posted. All have been published in when otherwise specified (most of those are on their way to AO3 as well when I get around to it).

Jan The Triangle (Ch 4-57)         185,817
Feb -
Mar The Bedding (Game of Ships - Get Lucky Porn Battle: Day I)
Apr The Look             4,078
May The Taunt / The Confession             6,303
Jun The New Sampo (Game of Ships Golden Ships challenge)

Sep -
Oct The Song           26,290
Nov A Chance Encounter           11,941
Dec Winter, thy enemy, thy friend (Sansa_Sandor LJ Holiday gift-exchange)

15.2.       Your favourite own story of this year: Must be ‘The Triangle’ – it was my favourite baby and the satisfaction of finally finishing it was just amazing!

15.3.       Most fun story to write: ‘The Prophecy’ – partly as it came about in little dribs and drabs on my big overseas holiday, so I associate other fun things with it.

15.4.       Your sexiest story: Hmmm, none have been overly so…maybe ‘The Look’, as it was really focussed on sensuality and sexiness, even though there was no touching!

15.5.        Your story with the single sexiest moment: I maybe partial, but in Chapter 51 of ‘The Triangle’, where the three of them ended slumbering in one bed after the celebrations, and Sandor woke up…and it was all so subtle and quiet and unreal…

Mists of Avalon4

15.6.         Your story that shifted your own perceptions of the characters: ‘A Chance Encounter’, where I purposefully tried to channel more brutal and coarse Sandor and realised that he is actually pretty appealing nonetheless.

15.7.        Your hardest story to write: The last five chapters of ‘The Triangle’ were a bit hard to push through…just because it was getting so long and I didn’t want to let it go stale and tediously overwrought.

16.     Best story(ies)  you read this year: Geezz…there were so many…one that stood out because it was different was by Zmeischa: Things preserved and things lost

17.     The sexiest story(ies) you read this year: This would have to be by Luvxena: Take My Breath Away …I am living in hope that she would continue it, as it is still WIP…

18.     The story with the single sexiest moment you read this year: If this is limited to stories published in 2013, I say by Okieday17 (and surprise, it is Jon/Arya!) ‘In My Life I Love You More’ If stories I read in 2013 are allowed, and if a story that in its entirety is a single, sexy moment, that would be by Ghostrelic: ‘Pursuit’ – whoa!

19.      The story you read this year that shifted your own perceptions of the characters: Maybe by Starbird1 ‘Seven More’ as even though it depicts young, innocent and guileless Sansa, she doesn’t annoy me as much as most pre-teens do…

20.     Biggest Disappointment: To see how some careless words and brief moments of hotheadedness in public forums can upset people and cause fandom drama beyond what the original topic (which varies) warrants for… in the worst case making well-meaning but passionate people coming to blows. In the even worst case, sometimes even innocents may get hurt…

21.      Biggest Surprise: To find out how easily I was drawn to the wonderful and terrible world of Tumblr…I swear that was not my intention!

22.     Your fanfic or profic goals for the New Year: To finish the last few WIPs, post unposted work on AO3 and then explore further different writing challenges, be it style, tone, format or characters…indeed, I would like to explore characters beyond sansan. Also, to take it a bit easier and not have 4 WIPs going on at a time, as I had at one point!

23.     I'd like to thank the academy... (Thanks to your betas, frequent commenters/supporters, the people who stayed up with you late...) Oh my, this list is getting more and more populated as time goes on… Mostly I am in debt to my wonderful and supportive beta [ profile] wildsky_sheri who patiently corrects my misuse of prepositions and raps my knuckles for word repetition and such… I am still in debt to [ profile] the_moonmoth for being a gateway to this wonderful world… [ profile] littlefeather and her sensibility has renewed by belief in human kindness if it has ever faltered…Thank you [ profile] dragonsupernova for introducing me to the new fandom of The Shield… And many, many people who inspire me and encourage me to continue in this fandom with their wonderful and supportive comments and interactions in Tumblr - you know who you are! You are aces!
