I posted a decent chunk of fic in a lot of fandoms and not-fandoms in 2018, enough that just linking them all fills me with ennui.

I also got a quality assortment of gifts! I'm a lucky man. I can't even choose my favourite out of all of them! Fandoms include original work, She-Ra, X-Men (Mostly Gambit), Fairytales, and even Zoo Tycoon! Also my sister wrote a Jeeves and Wooster/Ranma Fusion for my birthday that gets special mention because she's my sister.

I wrote 33127 words that the world got to see in 2018 and that's pretty good. Pretty good indeed. I try not to compare myself to my friends who wrote 100k+, though I am properly admiring of them considering that on top of that they're damn good authors. Prolific, consistent, and good quality. That's the dream!

Honestly the reason most of my recap of last year is about my fanfic is because that is the only aspect of my life I can click on a statistics page for. I can't actually remember most of 2018. I know it wasn't too bad and the parts that were bad for me passed. I know that I forgot to drink my New Year champagne.

I don't know, is last year the year I disconnected my stove and started using a plug in skillet? Did I reach season 11 of Murder She Wrote last year? The year before?

Did I disassemble my lego table then? I don't know. I'm starting to see why people use these things as diaries, because I can't seem to keep things straight in my head.

I was going to end this with a comic recommendation, but then I realized I'm ten issues or more behind on all my comics. So I don't know if they're currently good or not.

The last time I decided to have a nice reading session in the library, someone had placed a plastic skeleton in My Chair. It's still there, but now it's on the arm with its face pressed against the window to look at passerbys.

Does the skeleton have a name?

Congrats on all the words!

Yes, diary use is very good, if one can remember/bother to do it. ::nods firmly::

I kept up with Lost Light, but am ......uh...more than ten issues behind on everything else. Oops.

Skeleton chair!

Indeed! ;D Same...

Till All Are One, Optimus Prime, Hellboy, BPRD, Squirrel Girl, Monstress, ElfQuest, a handful of newish things I picked up first issues of out of curiosity, and a metric buttload of manga. Ancient Magus' Bride, Cells at Work, Made in Abyss, A Bride's Story. u.u

I don't know...it was making me sad so I de-prioritized it. I think another mini-series of Abe Sapien came out, too, which I haven't got.

AMB has some...uncomfortable underpinnings, but I love the quirky household/found family aspects, and the art is nice. Cells at Work is v cute! Oh wow Case Closed is rockin' it old school! I watched a handful of eps of the anime...is the manga fun? I have a bit of Inuyasha I think...next to the foot and a half span of a not even complete Ranma 1/2 collection. o.o; I have not heard of Rin-ne! ::chinhands:: 8D

Murder wizard! XD

OK Rin-ne sounds interesting!

Yes! I don't remember if the first anime I saw (in the 90's...I mean I'd been watching Speed Racer since I was little, and then Battle of the Planets and Voltron and Starblazers at a little older, and then Robotech came out when I was in high school and we called it Japanimation then and it was mind-blowing b/c a major-ish character ACTUALLY DIED) was Ranma or Sailor Moon, but those were the first two definitely. The Ranma fandom was what introduced me - very gently, really, as the story lends itself in a natural way - to yaoi. <3 ::has never looked back::

I...am not sure I knew Speed Racer et al were Japanese, not at first? I mean I knew Ultraman was. But I did notice that there was a similarity of style to them, like there was for the Looney Toons, and Hannah-Barbara, and a bit later, Rankin-Bass. I could pick out voices, too, though I had no idea of names. I could pick out the guy who would go on to do Thundercracker years later, and the guy who would do Ratchet. Frank Welker had me fooled, though, because I never figured Fred was also Cosmo and also Iceman from Spiderman and His Amazing Friends! Oh and Shaggy, being Casey Kasem, was super familiar! Scatman Crouthers too!

OMG that's kind of epic! XDDD Oh lord Due South slash... My bff was way more into Due South than I ever got - though I liked it a good deal - and she told me all about the two Rays and the two camps dedicated thereof. XDDDDDDD

I keep a text file with the year-end meme in it as a template and have a monthly reminder on my to-do list to update it with whatever happened that month. Otherwise I'd never remember what year people got married, etc.

That's what Dreamwidth is for, and it's searchable. :) But I don't always note things like that in my day-to-day posts. Maybe I'll start doing month-end "what I did this month that I'd never done before" entries.

I was just reading about how if you tell people you're doing something, you're less likely to do it because you feel like you've already done it. So, um, just ignore my posts about my plans for the year...

I read that as "manly lack of accomplishments", which made the sentence even better.

Thank you for coming to visit and reminding me I can actually have fun.

I have to say that the screaming at the coffee was a bit startling.

You didn't wake up. You opened your eyes, screamed, and then hit the pillow again.

Mom never screamed when I brought her coffee. :(
