Fandom year meme(s)

Let's have some memage! First here's the one with favorite shows and stuff.

Your main fandom of the year?
Merlin! I watched a lot of TV and had a pretty good variety in the fandoms I podficced this year but almost everything I wrote was for my show.

Your favorite LJ or Dreamwidth community of the year?
[community profile] kink_bingo, with honorable mentions for [ profile] summerpornathon and [community profile] amplificathon.

Your favorite film you watched this year?
Although I don't actually consider it a great movie and I have ambivalent feelings about the fandom, I really really loved X-Men: First Class.

Your favorite book read this year?
Ahhhh I barely read books these days and I can't actually think of any that I really felt strongly about.

Your favorite tv show of the year?
Merlin is still My Show but I had a really awesome time watching Community. I also loved Avatar: The Last Airbender (which I started watching in late 2010 and finished in early 2011), The Good Wife, and Parks and Recreation.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
I really loved watching the first two seasons of The Good Wife this spring, and I haven't enjoyed this fall's episodes nearly as much. (I also keep feeling disappointed that fandom mostly stays on LJ, as hard as LJ tries to push us away.)

Your fiction boyfriend of the year?
Abed Nadir!!

Your fiction girlfriend of the year?
Kalinda Sharma omg! Guinevere is still my favorite girl character on TV but that is more of an identification thing. Kalinda is the one I want to have sex with.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?
I really loved the first few episodes of this season of Merlin!

Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?
I guess The Hobbit will be a big thing? Idk I got emotional about that first making of video but not as much about the trailer as other people are. I don't know how that will be for me. In terms of fandom and creativity I am really excited (but also nervous) about [community profile] podficbigbang, which I expect to take up a whole lot of my time from January through May.

I figure I'll do the one about fics I wrote next week, even though I didn't write much this year, and then I should also do one for the podfics I made, though I don't know of a template for that. Podficcers, what do you think of this?

Number of podfics, total time in hours and minutes, and average length

Podfic that was the most fun to make

Most technically, logistically and/or physically challenging podfic

Podfic that took the most acting or emotional work

Sexiest podfic

Funniest podfic

Favorite podfic or the one you're most proud of

Most popular podfic

Podfic most underappreciated by the universe

Podfic that didn't work out the way you wanted it to

How has your podfic process changed this year?

Podfic plans or goals for the coming year

Oh wait, dude, I totally did a podfic year in review meme already last year! Here's the template:

Ha ha I feel like a dork now. Well, use whatever version you like, of course. I hope a lot of people will do it!

You mentioned doing a podfic end of year meme on twitter, right? And I got all excited but then realised I'd have to go and try and work out things like Number of podfics, total time in hours and minutes, and average length and I punked out:D

I still think it's a great idea though, so maybe I'll do it after Xmas.

I don't want to do stats beyond "Number of podfics", so I'm ignoring the rest! Those kind of metrics don't mean a lot to me anyway. You should totally do the meme anyway!

Considering I spent, like, an hour this morning trying to work out the numbers I think I will do the meme:D I had to work it out! It was a challenge I couldn't resist!
