Poll: Getting to Know You Even Better

It's the end of the year. We all have millions of new stories to read, and will shortly have even more. Many of us are hanging out with our families, which kind of inhibits porn consumption. So, obviously, it is not a time for recommending. Which means that it is time for invasive, involved questions.

Today's edition: your fandoms and mine. Tell me what you read and I will tell you what to read. And we will all get to Scotland at roughly the same time. (Sorry, but it sounded like it needed a chorus.)

This is your opportunity to influence the future, folks! I mean, only the future of this LJ. And probably - let's be honest here - not all that much influence, given that I hardly have influence on the content of this journal. But it will be interesting. For me, anyway. And for you, there's shiny happy ticky boxes. Everyone wins!

Polls are love.

Why, yes! I am taking this poll. Thanks for asking!

TFV, there's this great fandom you apparently don't read, judging by the sad lack of recs from you in it. (You can include ones on the list above, folks.) And this fandom is:

TFV, there's this great fandom that you rec, but not nearly enough. And this fandom is:

TFV, there's a fandom you rec way too much. Seriously. Ease up on the recommending of:

Is there anything else - a theme, a type of content, puppies - that you'd like to see, or see more often? In this LJ, I mean. World peace, while a lovely sight, is beyond my scope.
