I'm love Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. I find myself very similar to Sansa, which is why she's my favorite character of the series. I also like Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. Doctor Who is the best scifi series of all time. Star Trek, Journeyman, Farscape, Earth: Final Conflict, and Firefly are also good (and canceled), but could never match up to DW. I also watch Ashes to Ashes, Heroes, House, Moonlight, New Amsterdam, Primeval, Pushing Daisies, Supernatural, and Torchwood.
Are you noticing a pattern here? Book= fantasy, TV= sci-fi.
I read a lot of fanfiction, gen, het or slash; it makes no difference. I read them all now.
