Your favorite film you watched this year?
I almost wrote The Avengers, but I think it's The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
That there are awesome people in my new fandoms, who don't bash my weird ships, they even like it! (Miles/Charlie and Oliver/Thea in particular. And even if they're such a small fandoms, they have beautifully written fics.)
Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
The Mortal Instruments fandom. All of it. Especially the actor bashing.
Your fandom boyfriend of the year?
Loki, obviously. :D
Your fandom girlfriend of the year?
Regina | Evil Queen.
Your biggest squee moment of the year?
When mom bought me pieces of clothing to make a Loki cosplay. :D She really accepts me for who I am and loves me. <3
The most missed of your old fandoms?
The Mortal Instruments. When I started to write fics for it, it was some unknown thing, I loved Cassie's writing since the Draco Trilogy, I think I'm a fan for almost ten years, and then the new trilogies went downhill, but it got popular... And I don't write in it anymore, but I still like the idea of Sebastian/Clary.
The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?
Well, there are a lots of fandom I haven't written for, I like to try myself in Avengers, with some Loki-centric fic.
Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?
Thor 2, Iron Man 3, Neil Gaiman's new book, Julianna Baggott: Fuse, Lauren Oliver: Requiem, Kelley Armstrong: The Rising, Jackie Morse Kessler: Breath, Ann Redisch Stampler: Afterparty, Kelley Armstrong & Melissa Marr: Loki's Wolves, Amy Reed: Over You, Kelley Armstrong: Omens, Jill Hathaway: Impostor, Kendare Blake: Antigoddess, Keri Arthur: Darkness Unmasked and Darkness Splintered.
And I tell her about all the shipping things, explaining tumblr and the likes (she's not the computer or Internet person), so basically if I read a bad fanfic, I complain to my mom ("ME: LISTEN TO THIS, IS THIS HOW MR. GOLD TALK? I DON'T THINK SO, HE'S TOTALLY OOC! Mom *with slightly terrified eyes, but amused* Yes, he is OOC.") So she's pretty amazing. I did make a mistake though, she generally doesn't remember my celebrity crushes, but I talk so much about Tom Hiddleston and I watch Avengers day and night, that his name stuck in her memory, and well... she knows I hate Thorki. So what did she do? That's right. She's written a Thor/Loki NC-17 fic (pretty detailed...) named "Thor and Loki in the sauna." Well, you know if you read anal and oral sex written by your own mother FOR A GODDAMN ship you hate, it's rather squicky...
AND THEN SHE HAD THE BALLS TO TELL ME I ASKED FOR IT. :DDD THAT WOMAN!
Mom: You told me to write a fanfic.
Me: No, mom. I said "Don't you dare to write a fanfic."
Mom: Oh, right.
Mom: But you wanted to read some smut.
Me: No, Mom, I definitely didn't. Not when you're the one writing it.
Mom: Right. Why did I write a fanfic?
Me: To mentally scar me forever.
And now she practically threatened me she'd write a Klaus/Elena fic, because I'm moping due to the lack of Klena scenes.
A - Your current OTP.
I think that would be Swan Queen (Emma Swan/Regina), right now, but I’m kinda a multi shipper. :D I have several.
B - A pairing you initially didn’t consider but someone changed your mind.
Klaus/Elena – I totally fell in love with this one after I’ve read a fanfic, up until then I didn’t see it.
C - A pairing you have never liked and probably never will.
Thor/Loki – omg, no! I’m actually that kind of girl, who likes incest and weird stuff, but I hate Thor so much, I just can’t pair up Loki with him, Loki deserves better.
D - A pairing you wish you liked but just can’t.
Tony/Loki – I’m the girl who needs to love the two people she ships, and I love them… separately. So I’m kinda shocked I can’t ship them, but I… just… can’t.
E - Have you added anything stupid/cracky/hilarious to your fandom, if so, what?
Oh, I’ve written long ago a Tom Riddle/Hermione fic, funny thing, it was, like, four years ago, and someone wrote me about it the past week, whether I’d continue it. Sadly, no. It wasn’t my best work, that’s for sure.
F - What’s the longest you’ve ever been in a fandom?
Ten years, I think. I loved Alias as soon as it aired, and I’m still a number one fan.
G - Do you remember your first OTP, if so who was in it?
Draco Malfoy/Hermione Granger. Oh, my. :D
H - Do you prefer characters from real action series or anime series?
I don’t really watch animes, so live action series.
I - Has tumblr caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why?
Yes, The Mortal Instruments fandom. I was aware of the issues of Clare’s writing, but I still liked most of her works, and I still do, but the dramas and the ‘OMIGOD ALEX PETTYFER Y U NO PLAY JACE’ things just annoyed me. I quitted.
J - Name a fandom you didn’t care/think about until you saw it all over Tumblr.
Avengers and Sherlock. Funny thing is I love comics, I mostly read Vertigo (dark fantasy things), but I always loved Batman, Superman, etc. however the Avengers and the other Marvel Cinematic Universe’s movies were lost on me. And then everyone loved it so much, everywhere I looked I saw Loki post, etc, I gave in. Sherlock has a similar story.
K - How do you feel about the other people in your current fandom?
Well, I distanced myself from the TMI fandom, and the others are good, except maybe the ‘TVD family’ with the whole Damon-Stefan shipwar. But shipwars are common everywhere, I tend to skip the hate posts.
L - Your favorite fanartist/author gives you one request, what do you ask for?
Oh, god, I’d die for a Klaus/Elena/Elijah multi-chapter fic, and some Loki/Loki fanart.
M - Your favorite fanart or fanartist.
N - Your favorite fanfiction or fanauthor?
I absolutely love Sandrine's, pomnit’s, wolfgene's and adlyb's writing style, I'm always happy to see their new fics. (Also, I'm the stalkerish kind of reader, because I can't write a normal comment.) But apart from them, here are some of my favorites:
Enigma by darkling13 (Miles/Charlie)
I wanna see what you see (when your eyes close) by Philyra (Hook/Emma)
Now, and Then by dmnutv_archer (Loki/Loki)
Mehr Als Es Scheint by Anesther (Hiccup/human!Toothless)
Three Days Grace – Life Starts Now - Swan Queen, obviously.
P - Invent a random AU for any fandom (we always need more ideas).
I hate AU's, I'm sorry. But you know, the reverse things are always interesting. For example, Klaus is the doppelganger, and Elena is the Original Hybrid. (But it would be a much more gentler story, I can't picture Elena as a homicidal type.)
Q - A ship you’ve abandoned and why.
Damon/Elena – I loved them for the first two seasons, and then it went all downhill. I can’t really remember which episode it was, but something about that the Salvatore brothers were just giving Elena to the other one. And I get it, brotherly love and all, but they’ve already fucked that up with Katherine, it’s good to see they learned something from it, but I dunno… it came out as Elena was just some object to them. More recently, Damon doesn’t care really about Elena, (I’m not even convinced the Salvatores see her a separate person from Katherine), okay he needs someone who will try to fix him, and Elena is this kind of person, but to me a healthy relationship is about respect and understanding and Damon doesn’t respect Elena’s choices and I don’t mean the suicidal ones. So yeah… I only watch TVD for the Originals now.
S - Show us an example of your personal headcanon.
Oh, god… if I’m in the middle of a TVD ramble, then let’s continue that: Klaus and Elijah both have some kind of feelings for Elena. Elijah is clearly in love with her (if they show him more in this season apart from the effing flashback it would be good, btw), Elena reminds him of all the human feelings he value, and the caring and self-sacrifice his fucked-up family doesn’t really have. Aaaand I think Elijah would be the best person to help Elena with the vampirism (quit trying to fix her, really, show, don’t do it).
And the Klaus side of my headcanon: Elena reminds him of Tatia, obviously she was the only girl he had feelings for (no, in my mind there is no Klaroline), and while with Katherine he could turn off anything resembling to human feelings, (because Katherine was selfish, even when she was human), but Elena always contradicts him, she’s borderline suicidal with her selflessness, and she’s trying to fix and understand everyone, including Klaus. Again, the exact episode number eludes me, but Elena said Klaus doesn’t need to hurt anybody even to get what he wants. To me it was a kind of echo to the whole start of Damon/Elena relationship.
T - If you mostly have homoships, do you have any heteroships?/ U - If you mostly have heteroships, do you have any homoships?
I think I have both. I don’t prefer this or that; I ship where I see chemistry.
V - Are you one of those fans who can’t watch anything without shipping?
Mostly, yes. I’m terrible really. But the main reason I love series (TV or books) is the characters and the relationship. (Hell, I even don’t like movies where aren’t any characterization). And if the characters are strong and the relationships are complex, there is a good chance I find a ship.
W - 5 favorite characters from 5 different fandoms.
Loki (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Hiccup (How to Train Your Dragon)
Regina (Once Upon a Time)
Lucifer (Lucifer-Sandman-Vertigo Universe)
Thea Queen (Arrow)
Y - A fandom you’re in but have no ships from.
Marvel Cinematic Universe, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
Z - Just ramble about something fan-related, go go go.
I think I’ll just do some other ship meme. :D
Five ships you’re into right now:
1. Regina/Emma (Once Upon a Time)
2. Oliver/Thea (Arrow)
3. Miles/Charlie (Revolution)
4. Klaus/Elena (The Vampire Diaries)
5. Hook/Emma (Once Upon a Time)
Three ships you liked, but don’t anymore:
7. Damon/Elena (The Vampire Diaries)
8. Castiel/Dean (Supernatural) – I like them on TV, but I can’t fangirl over them anymore. I think I OD’d.
9. Peter/Olivia (Fringe) – I haven’t even watched S5.
Three ships you never liked:
10. Klaus/Caroline (The Vampire Diaries)
11. Thor/Loki (MCU)
12. Oliver/Laurel (Arrow)
Two ships you’re curious about, but don’t actually ship:
13. Katherine/Elena (TVD)
14. Ruby/Belle (OUaT)
1. Why do you dislike #11 so much?
I hate Thor, as a character he’s too simple for my taste. The annoying brat (funny, because in BBC Merlin, they created a likeable Arthur), who doesn’t really aware of the others around him.
2. Who is someone you know that ships #14?
I don’t know, I saw it on AO3. :D
3. What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3?
Well, if they weren’t related, that would be nice. I think the TV show set up a nice relationship between the two: the big, cruel, heartless soldier and the stubborn girl, who doesn’t give up on the basic human things, like love and mercy and the likes, and while Miles changes because of Charlie, she does the same because of him. They complete each other, for God’s sake, WHY ARE THEY RELATED? (fangirl problems)
4. Which is your favorite moment for couple #1?
The catfights (obviously), the 2x09 ‘welcome back’, the ‘she’s not dying,’ and OHGOD EVERYTIME THEY INTERACTION IS BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT.
5. How long have you been following couple #5?
Geez. Everyone loved Hook/Emma, when the 2x04 trailer came out, and I was like ‘Why ship Emma with all the guys?’ I mean I get it everyone ships what they want, I just didn’t understand why they need Emma paired up so adamantly with some guy. And then their chemistry in 2x06 just blew me away. :D
6. What’s the story with #8? What made you stop liking them/caring?
I OD’d. I’ve read too much fic, and while I love their interaction on screen, I can’t bring myself to fangirl over them.
7. You have the power to make one ship non-existent. Choose from #10 or #12
It’s so hard to choose. I am so emotionally invested in Arrow right now, I should choose Oliver/Laurel, but my ship is incest in this show, and will never be canon, so let it be Klaroline. I don’t like Caroline since the last ep, and I felt this ship always forced, like they needed some girl for Klaus, and didn’t want to bring Tatia back, so here is some nice blond. (Does anyone notice that Caroline and Rebekah are so… similar? Okay, it may be just my incest radar, don’t mind me.)
8. Which ship do you prefer, #2 or #4?
Oliver/Thea – one word: CHEMISTRY.
9. What interests you about #14?
Well, Belle is kind of an expert on ‘beasts,’ and Ruby see herself as such. And they are so adorable together. I hope at least a friendship blooms between them on screen.
10. Why did you stop liking #7?
I wrote about them above.
11. Did your waning interest in #9 kill your interest in the fandom?
Not really, I just hated Etta and couldn’t bring myself to watch the new season. I’ll catch up when it’s over.
12. What’s a song that reminds you of #5?
Mayday Parade - You're Dead Wrong
"She's got broken things
Where her heart should be
But I can tell there are moments
When I'm really getting through"
13. If you could have any of these two pairings double-date, who would it be?
Ha-ha. Regina/Emma/Hook. Make it a threesome.
14. Have #2 kissed yet?
SADLY THEY HAVEN’T.
15. Did #4 have a happy ending? If the show hasn’t ended yet, do you think a happy ending is likely?
Sure, it’s my headcanon. Elena chooses Klaus over the whiny Salvatores.
16. What would make you start shipping #13?
If they got more scenes.
17. If only one could happen, which would you prefer, #2 or #5?
Cruel question, but obviously Oliver/Thea. :D
18. You have the power to decide the fate of #10. What happens to them?
Caroline chooses Tyler, Klaus chooses Elena. End of story.
19. Which of these ships do you love the most?
I CAN’T CHOOSE. IT’S NOT RIGHT. Well, if I have to then Regina/Emma.
