Welcome to All Geek Things Science Fiction and Fantasy (formerly Pasha’s Obsessions). I’m Pasha and this is my origin story.
I am a web geek, writer, poet and avid blogger by night. By day I’m a Web Developer and communications professional.
I’m a phenomenal woman and in the words of Xena: “I have many skills” but the pen is my superpower it being mightier than the sword and all. I am a lover of science fiction and fantasy but also like to watch good TV dramas.
This website is dedicated to my obsession with science fiction, fantasy and the supernatural. I might occasionally talk about drama shows like Scandal but my passion is for science fiction series such as Star Trek and all its spinoffs and post-apocalyptic drama like Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, The 100, The 4400 and 12 Monkeys and of course superheroes who save the world on a daily basis, like Xena, Buffy, The Flash and co.
I’ve been blogging about random stuff since I hooked up my first 28k baud modem. I didn’t start getting serious about blogging until I got my 58k modem and found my first girl crush, Xena. Having watched Dr Beverley Crusher and Counsellor Deanna Troi just talking about feelings Xena was a welcome change. I’d like to think the series helped to show that women could and should be allowed to kick ass on TV, not just be passive set decoration.
Because of Xena, I rekindled my love for writing and started writing fan-fiction. This is something I used to do at school in exercise books before the internet and before it had a name. From there I went on to attempt to write a book and then my son came along. The unfinished manuscript is sitting in the back of my cupboard. One day, I’ll finish it or start a new one, or whatever. Whilst studying for my NLP and Life Coaching diplomas I did self-publish a book of poetry from my bucket list of small goals, so there’s that.
In the meantime, I’ll use the power of my pen to review TV shows, films, books and talk about blogging, social media and random stuff.
Hope you like what you find here.
