eleanorjane: Chiana (call me pip)
With the proviso that I'm terrible at these things because I can never remember what happened in which year:

1. Your main fandom of the year?

Probably Marvel Cinematic Universe at the start of the year, migrating to Star Wars? Honestly, I tend to go where the recs go. :)

2. Your favorite film watched this year?

Deadpool! ♥

Rogue One would be close behind, though, and I also really enjoyed Star Trek Beyond, and Doctor Strange.

3. Your favorite book read this year?

I didn't read much new-to-me published fiction, so unless you're counting rereads (in which case the oeuvre of Guy Gavriel Kay will win every year), I'd have to say Valour's Choice by Tanya Huff, which reminded me how much I love military sci-fi.

4. Your favorite TV show of the year?

This was the year I really gave up on TV. Pretty much the only stuff I made time for was QI (SANDI ♥) and Mock the Week, so I'd have to say one of those.

5. Your favorite online fandom community of the year?

Fandom. :)

6. Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

I... don't actually know that I made any fandom discoveries this year? I have had a lot less time for reading than in past years, which definitely affects that - I haven't had time to keep up with my AO3 subscriptions, let alone go looking for new stuff.

7. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

I would say Captain America: Civil War, except I knew going into it that it would be that bad. But it could have been so good! *sigh*

8. Your TV boyfriend of the year?
9. Your TV girlfriend of the year?

It's weird, I don't tend to fixate on specific characters the way other people do - I might love to read about them or watch them, but they're usually not my type at all.

10. Your biggest squee moment of the year?

Probably the Sabotage scene from Star Trek Beyond. "I have the beats and shouting." Hee! ♥

11. The most missed of your old fandoms?

I miss the early heady days of MCU fandom, where everything was possible. :) I also had a major HP-verse nostalgia trip this year and reread a bunch of beloved fic which still holds up really very well.

12. The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?

I must admit, as a long-time gaming nerd, Critical Role has been piquing my interest. :)

(Having said that, one of the reasons I have a lot less fandom time these days is that post-breakup, I have a new housemate - a long-time close friend and the GM of my gaming group, who's running an utterly awesome one-on-one Exalted game for me. Why watch other people roleplaying when I could be doing it myself? :))

13. Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?

Star Wars: Episode VIII. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Mass Effect: Andromeda. (I'm trying to get the Mass Effect trilogy played, finally, before its release - hampered by my PC's new overheating issue, grr!)
