We are here again, my dear friends. It is time for the annual reckoning, that fannish evaluation that decides whether we live or die or join tumblr!

Okay, so I already joined/started actually using tumblr. What can I say? I appreciate the daily scroll of pretty! Tumblr is actually not a bad place for me right now. Most of the time, it involves pretty pictures of pretty people, cute animals, or funny comics. Some of the time, there are links to meta and essays that make me think. Sometimes there is even fic--though honestly, fic was a very small part of my life this year.

Still, I did write some.

Teamwork. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack.
Two Things Sam and Janet Don't Have in Common (and One Thing They Do). Stargate SG-1, Gen.

TWO?! I ONLY WROTE TWO FICS?! I guess that means I have to stay on tumblr.

I re-watched Legend of the Seeker (again). The epic hair, forbidden love, cheesy humor, beautiful scenery, pretty people, shiny swords, and female friendships all make me very happy--and the show is only two seasons long, which makes it easy to rewatch.

I got very fannish about Once Upon a Time.

I started a Farscape re-watch that I didn't finish… yet. I'll get there. It's SUCH a good show, but I totally got sucked into a Doctor Who rewatch instead--I was trying to get caught up for the Day of the Doctor, and I ended up starting back with Nine, because I could and because I had to wait a very long time for the latest DVDs from the library. I have part of a post put together about the Awesomeness of Donna Noble, which I hope to get together and post early in 2014.

However, I also tried to watch Torchwood: Miracle Day. Ugh. Just… ugh. Gave up.

I was really, really, really obsessed with Iron Man 3.

I'm sorry about this, but I just can't let it go. I put together some thoughts about the cost and consequences of magic in Once Upon a Time and some reasons why I think the magic system in the show is broken and terrible and needs to be fixed. I did this mostly from memory and my own impressions, so if you think I'm wrong about something or am missing important examples, please comment!

P.S. I know it's "Rumplestiltskin" and not "Rumpelstiltskin" in Once, but is it shortened to Rumple or Rumpel?

1. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries: I will never quit you. What? THERE'S ONLY ONE MORE EPISODE? That sucks.

2. I am re-watching the BBC Pride and Prejudice. These things might be related.

3. Once Upon a Time! How did you manage to become My New Thing? There is still so much wrong with you. But I apparently don't care.

4. I got spoiled for something related to Iron Man 3. Really, not a Big Thing, but a very fun thing. Oops? There's really no way I could have avoided it, I know. Not unless I cut myself off from all internet-related fun for the next month or so. That wasn't going to happen.

Yes, I know I said I wasn't really fannish about this show. Shut up.

I have realized that I'm quite fannish about certain parts of Once Upon a Time, specifically the Snow White Kicks Ass show. I like the other shows that air alongside that one okay, like the Belle Knows Books Save Lives show and the Mulan Deals with Aurora show and the Hook Wears Eyeliner show.

The only problem is that I'm not a big fan of the Rumpelstiltskin Makes Bad Decisions and Deserves Our Pity show, which seems to be on a lot more than necessary.

But that's okay! I have fannish thoughts about this episode!
