To flail about the fact that Hockey RPF is a qualifying fandom for Remix Redux this year, and I've written enough Hockey RPF stories to qualify! I'm kind of really incredibly excited about this, as I've wanted to participate in Remix for years but I've never had enough stories in a single fandom to qualify before. I'm looking forward to the challenge!

In the meantime, I'm still hockey obsessed. Got to watch the Blackhawks beat down the Blues at United Center last week while visiting family in Chicago, which was pretty amazing -- the atmosphere there is really something else -- and am now the proud owner of a small teddy bear Tazer. He was almost a teddy bear Kaner or teddy bear Duncs instead, but I just couldn't resist his adorable little supercilious expression. I fall a little more in love with my Dallas and Texas Stars every day, it's completely ridiculous. Also ridiculous are my many affectionate feelings about so many players on so many teams. Mostly based on their actual hockey playing, these days (but not solely, I must admit). For example, I've had a thing for Ryan McDonagh since I snagged him for my fantasy hockey team in 2011-12 partway through the year because of injuries and then couldn't ever bring myself to switch him back out because he was always so consistent and steady; watching the Flyers @ Rangers game tonight gave me super embarrassingly proud feelings I probably shouldn't admit to. Only things like that happen basically all the time. It's just a fact of my life now. Another day, another hockey enthusiasm. ♥

I have all sorts of Olympics things to say (especially about the figure skating! That Russian ice dancing team that did the Swan Lake made me swoon), and also things about such diverse topics as Community, Elementary (Joan Watson ♥_♥), Lone Survivor (which gave me such a craving for GK fic), the Lego Movie, the Voice, Dancing with the Stars (Meryl & Maks forever!!), Grimm, the October Daye books, and I'm sure tons of other things not coming to mind right now. And I should probably make a Yuletide post covering the past couple of years at some point...
