So, I didn't finish the one fic I started this year (a TAB-inspired Mystrade), but that's not surprising, considering I had forgotten all about it and only started working on it again just before Christmas. I'll work on it some more after Season 4 and if it's not canon-compliant any more after the new episodes, well, I'll just consider it an AU.

Time for the usual end of year memes!


1. Your main fandom of the year: Sherlock.

2. Your favorite Film this year: A street cat named Bob, Lupin III, Ghostbusters, Doctor Strange.

3. Your favorite Book read this year: "Tempo di lupi e di comunisti", Vera Pegna.

4. Your favorite Album or Song this year: "Christmas Rocks", The Brian Setzer Orchestra.

5. Your favorite TV Show this year: I watch so little TV... The Sherlock special, I guess.

6. Your favorite LJ Community this year: I'm not really active in LJ communities, but I did find a few interesting recs on [ profile] 221b_recs.

I wanted to find a flat and I didn't. But I went to quite a few concerts and I'm happy about that. I'll make a list for 2017:

• finish the Mystrade fic I started after TAB

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2016
Be less judgemental.

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
I'm very undecided, as both apply:

Ich bin nicht arm, ich hab was mir gefällt
ich bin nicht neidisch auf dich oder dein Geld
Herzlich willkommen in meinem Lebenslauf
ich bin ganz ruhig, warum regst du dich denn so auf?

"Rebell", Die Ärzte

(Translation: I'm not poor, I have what I like
I'm not jealous of you or your money
Welcome to my life
I'm pretty quiet, why are you so worked up?)

Du hast kein klares Ziel, aber Millionen Möglichkeiten
Ein gutes Gefühl - und du weißt, es wird gut für dich ausgehen

"Himmelblau", Die Ärzte

(Translation: You don't have a clear goal, but a million possibilities
A good feeling - and you know, things will be fine)
