What are your other (geeky) obsessions?

Post by MissKitten on Fri Mar 22, 2013 10:02 pm

The question is simple, what besides Doctor Who tickles your geekness - and to what degree?

I've had many obsession both geek and non-geek, some temporary, some lasting. Some allconsuming, others that didn't mind "sharing" their place with other obsessions Razz

I usually tend to hone in on television shows, but I have been known to step outside the medium for a couple of things.

I'm most definitely a Harry Potter fan, majorly preferring the books over the movies (but I do find the movies enjoyable when I ignore all the changes they made). I can re-read the books an infinite amount of times. And while I'm usually an avid fanfic-reader/writer, this is one of few fandoms where I prefer not to venture outside of what's "canon", I do however enjoy watching fanvids from time to time. I like playing the games (preferring the first three x-box titles so far - hating the fourth with a firey passion), have started collecting wand replicas (got Hermione and Tonks so far) and a couple of years ago I met Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) at a signing event.

My greatest Television obsession is Firefly, I've written fanfics, made fanvids, gone to several Firefly-conventions and met most of the cast and guest stars, when it comes to merchendise - if it's Firefly-related there's a big chance I will want to get it, lol. I made myself my very own Kaylee outfit, which I also wore at several of the Firefly conventions I've bee to.

I could probably make a detailed list over everything that tickles my fancy, but instead I will mention a couple of current obsessions (Castle, Bones, Lost Girl) and a couple of former obsessions that I still love, but doesn't focus as much on atm (Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse, Stargate SG-1/SGA, The 4400, Dark Angel, etc).

So, what about you guys?

Definitely LOTR. I own an almost complete collection of LOTR action figures. My home is covered with LOTR posters and books. I collect every dvd, cd or book about LOTR.

Another one is Hockey (ice hockey). I'm an obsessed hockey fanatic for years now and don't see it end anytime soon.
