castalia: (OUaT - Snow caught)

I never can seem to get my recs together in a timely manner, but since I'm tired of sitting on this post I'm going to make it anyway and just use this for my own future reference. So, feel free to skip.

Anyway, yes, Yuletide! I was glad that this year there seemed to be more things I wanted to read, though the continued popularity of so many fandoms like RPF, comics and stuff I don't read, and all the music videos/songs/commercials/etc means I don't read as many as I used to. I still don't get how some of those last things count as a damn fandom, I really don't.
