Sorry for the spam! This one is shorter, so I'm not hiding it behind a cut.

#1: [community profile] podfic_love [ profile] podfic_love [ profile] podfic_love.
podfic_love is a podfic reccing community that started up a few months ago. The comm features both official and drive-by reccing, and it didn't take long at all for it to become an excellent source of recs for podfics in a wide range of fandoms, performed by a wide range of podficcers. I haven't posted there as much as I'd like, but I always love reading the recs other people leave. It makes me really, really happy to listen to podfic fans talk about the podfic they love. Whether it's talking about the podficcer's voice and performance choices, the way the podfic was edited together, or what the podfic meant on a personal level to the listener, it's a joy to witness fellow podfic fans loving what they love.

#2: [ profile] americancaptaincomic Steve Rogers' American Captain: A Diary Comic

I got hooked on this webcomic right around this time last year. It is FANTASTIC. The comic is Steve Roger's diary (in comic form, since he's an artist) following the events of The Avengers, and it's funny and sad and occasionally pretty triggery for anxiety and depression, and I love absolutely everything about it. Steve moves through the world trying to make sense of the 21st century (oranges are so cheap now! hot dogs are...kind of terrible, but hard to stop eating!), coping with the demands of being a public figure (wearing makeup on morning news shows!), getting to know his team mates, forging a beautiful friendship with Pepper Potts, and generally trying to get a grip on himself. There's a lot of discussion of mental health issues, and it can be really heart-rending and triggery at times, but in the best possible way. This comic is one of my favorite things on the internet right now.

#3: [ profile] sttngfashion Fashion It So

A fashion blog for Star Trek: The Next Generation. How much more do I really have to say? This tumblr posts recaps of TNG episodes structured around the hair and clothing choices of the characters. There is much discussion of Beverly and Deanna's hair, everything Guinan ever wears, the color beige, colorblock jumpsuits, and the popularity of shoes that exactly match the color of your tights/pants/floor-length curtain-dress-thing in the 24th century. It's hilarious. I love it. (Oh my god, though, I wanted Deanna Troi's hair SO BAD when I was a kid. My bowl cut just could not compete.)

I wanted to do this last year, but for whatever reason I didn't. I was fannishly really quiet for all of 2013. I want to change that in 2014, and this is a first step.
