I didn’t grow up in a superhero family. Sure, I watched Batman cartoons on TV when I was a kid, and my parents kind of liked that Superman show that was on for a while starring Dean Cain.
I’ve been a Star Wars fan for many years, but it wasn’t until the last couple years that I also became a… Reylo shipper (Rey and Kylo Ren/Ben Solo from the sequel Star Wars trilogy).
One of the first things I really got obsessed over was the Animorphs book series by K.A. Applegate, in elementary school. I didn’t even know what a fandom was at that point, but I was definitely a part of it. I read EVERY. SINGLE. BOOK. All 64 of them.
