What is her Fangirl interest?
Alison is a member of many fandoms for movies, games and T.V. shows. A few include Star Wars, Star Trek, Supernatural, Doctor Who, BBC Sherlock, Avatar the Last Airbender, Assassin’s Creed, Mass Effect and many others. Her favorite movie genre is historical fiction and war films. She has expressed the regrettable impossibility to choose a favorite character!
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
She is highly dedicated to her fandoms and being a fan (of multiple things) is clearly an important part of her life. This is perhaps the most evident in the fact that she has been working on a novel based on the Star Wars video game Knights of the Old Republic for several years. Unfortunately, despite her intense dedication, she feels this endeavor often goes overlooked and unrespected by people due to the fact that it is a fan novel.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
Writing fan fiction is her main hobby. She has over 25 stories posted online including her fan novel for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic that she has been working on intermittently for 4 years now. She attended New York Comic Con for the first time this past October and is looking forward to this year’s. She is anticipating cosplaying Darth Revan, who is a main character in her novel. She spends most days on tumblr (blogging about her fandoms!) and writing her novel.
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
“Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not.” – George Bernard Shaw
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
Her Doctor Who sweatshirt. It’s warm, comfortable, and a convenient yet bold expression of fandom!
