I'm a major fan of LotR, Gargoyles, Batman - the comic and TAS, Batman Beyond, JLA and JLU (comics and animated); Teen Titans (comic only) Buffy and Angel, Witchblade and various other shows. I also like Inu-Yasha, Samurai Jack, Galaxy Rangers ( the 1980s series) and just about anything from Hayao Miyuzaki. In the world of books, I love the works of Mercedes Lackey, Robin McKinley, Tamora Pierce, Susan Cooper, and a wonderful writer named John Flanagan who writes a LOTR-like series called The Ranger's Apprentice. Read all of the above authors when you can - their work is worth reading. I'm also starting to get into historical fiction such as the Master and Commander book series by Pat O'Brien and the Sharpe's Series by Bernard Cornwell. (Excellent mini series with Sean Bean, Alexis Denisov, and various others - the DVDs got me hooked.)
I will update with my fanfiction LJ as soon as I get it set up.
