When I fantasized about fictional universes in adolescence (which was when both Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings got big), I didn’t fantasize about a world into which I could insert my child-self.

I’ve read a lot of awesome books series over the years, but my absolute favorite stands out from the rest. It’s the Kushiel’s Legacy series by Jacqueline Carey.
I’m not huge into comics or graphic novels, but there are some Star Wars graphic novels that I’ve been wanting to check out because of the story lines they explore.
So here’s the thing. I actually really don’t like anime. Like, actively don’t like it.
I actually have two hobbies that are kinda geeky!
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.
The real life geek that inspires me is the person who is the reason I am a geek in the first place – my dad!
Attending a convention has been on my bucket list for a while. I can’t imagine anything sounding more fun than hanging out with a bunch of like-minded fans wearing fantastic costumes and talking about nerdy stuff. It’s just never worked out for me to go.
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.
