In your own space, talk about setting yourself a fannish goal. Big or small, it doesn't matter. Some examples: complete a bingo, sign up for a Big Bang, write that fic you've been thinking about for years, podfic that story that you love, make a fanmix for your fandom, post that bit of meta or reclist you keep putting off. Maybe resolve to be better at leaving feedback or answering comments. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

My goal this year in fandom is ambitious: get a plus sign bingo on my [community profile] trope_bingo card. This means 9 stories that cover these tropes: locked in, au circus, wild card, au coffee shop, animal transformation, au all human, au steampunk, fuck or die and truth or dare. Considering I've written nine fics total in the last three years, this is a pretty lofty goal. My super duper ambitious plan is complete the plus sign, get a second card, then do another line. Because that is how much I love tropes! I would also like to do round four of [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo.

X-Force 34

I'm back to re-reading X-Force. I got side-tracked when I had to re-read 100 issues of X-Factor for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide (such a hardship, I know). Tony Daniel is on art now, and he's really the guy who defines X-Force-era Rictor and Shatterstar for me. I'm up to issue 34 -- which is really one of the quintessential Rictor issues. You get Rictor's messed up family history and the glory of Shatterstar revealing he learned Spanish just so he and Rictor could secretly communicate. Guh, boys, seriously. (All the issue 34 stuff also makes it even more tragic when power-less Rictor in X-Factor starts using guns, waah).

I think, after X-Force, I'll re-read PAD's awesome first run on X-Factor (and possibly all of X-Factor, because tiny!Rictor shows up in, like, issue 17 and is so wee and little and traumatised). I've been keeping up to date with Kathleen David's blog (PAD's wife).  For those comic fans who may not know, Peter David had a stroke a little over a week ago, and she's been keeping the fans (among others) updated on his progress. 

Then after X-Factor, I'll read the New Mutants, because I've owned the entire run for years and never actually read a single issue.  /confession
