I’m going to go with Loki’s question “https://scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/170842/why-did-the-voyager-doctor-have-to-scrub-in”, largely because it’s asking about an event that looks like a simple writing error but that turned out to be incredibly subtle foreshadowing.
Tooting one’s own trumpet, I’m going to say that my answer to “https://scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/171610/is-luke-skywalker-actually-a-jedi” was one that I enjoyed writing. It’s a deceptively simple question but one that deserved a proper answer. This is also the poster-child for my contention that if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing with massive overkill
@DisturbedNeo’s question about the Origin of Shark Repellent was very interesting, and @FuzzyBoots’ response was surprising and educational. I did not expect such a thing to be based on something in real life.
My Lady @Bellatrix’s 3 to my question about Transfiguration and Animagi was very detailed and well thought out. It was also the only one to directly answer my question right at the top, which made it convenient and was appreciated.

I’m rather proud of this self-answer that I wrote to my question https://scifi.stackexchange.com/q/176188/33591. I spent over 4 hours researching this answer, and learned more about Polynesian mythology than I ever thought I’d know. I wasn’t expecting to write a self-answer when I wrote the question, but I thought I’d take a shot at it after seeing it go HNQ. It also conveniently gave me a few hats for Winter Bash 2017 😀
