As a nerd, I fangirl a lot.  When I was eight years old, I recorded Star Wars onto a cassette tape and painstakingly wrote a script of A New Hope.  When I was in middle school I read and watched The Fellowship of the Ring, kick-starting a lifelong obsession with Middle-earth.  I love books, movies, TV, music–I cannot get enough of all things creative.  Fantasy is my safe place where I can mentally escape for an adventure and wrestle through moral quandaries without the immediacy of Real Life Pressure.  As such, my boundary between real and imagined is heavily blurred, and I will cry for hours about fictional characters when perhaps I should be cleaning the bathroom or paying bills.
