Hello there, people of the Internet. We’ve had this thing going on for a while now, and we thought, if we’re going to get more serious, you should all know more about the three of us. The truth, and nothing but the truth. For the past week we’ve been inviting you to ask us questions via our Twitter account. Well, you asked, now we’re going to answer!
Q. What are your hobbies?
A. Unique Geek: I craft, I craft pretty constantly because I just like to keep my hands busy, I do a lot of photography, I sing, I read quite a lot, mostly when I have free time I think up things to keep the kids I babysit busy. I’m really quiet, I like quiet things.
Critique Geek: I read and I do a lot of RP to keep my writing sharp; both things help with writer’s block.
Freak Geek: Playing guitar, collecting rare CD’s, and SPN fan fiction. That is my life.
Q. How did you meet?
A. Unique Geek: Well, children, we found love in a hopeless place.
Critique Geek: We met in the Facebook-group-that-shall-not-be-named. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Freak Geek: In a deep, dark void.
Q. Is Freak Geek a ginger?
A. Freak Geek: I’ve been dying my hair shades of red for the past three years, but my natural hair color is a mousy kind of brown.
Q. How long have you known each other?
A. Unique Geek: I’ve known everyone since the summer of 2012.
Critique Geek: Yup, Summer 2012. Aw, it’s our one-year friendship anniversary!
Freak Geek: A while. It’s been a while.
Q. Will J.K. Rowling ruin the magic of Harry Potter if she adds more books to the series?
A. Unique Geek: I don’t think she’ll write more books, but if she did I also don’t think things would be ruined.
Freak Geek: I don’t know, I doubt she would do such a thing.
Critique Geek: Well this just got serious. I don’t think she’ll write more books either. If she does, I highly doubt they’ll be about Harry or any of his children. I’d actually be really, really interested in a book that takes place in Beauxbatons, Durmstrang, or any of the other wizarding schools. So I say no, the magic of Harry Potter wouldn’t be ruined.
Q. Should GoT go its own direction if it catches up to the books? How many seasons do you think it should go?
A. Unique Geek: No, no it should not. I think, however, there’s enough material to draw out the next few seasons even longer to give George R.R. Martin more time.
Critique Geek: The show has already taken some liberties with the storyline, but I doubt they’ll stray too far from Martin’s work. I agree with Cecelia, though; they have a decent amount to work with and they’ll likely continue to flesh out non-PoV characters like Margaery (#TeamMargaery). I could easily see it going for five, six more seasons.
Freak Geek: I don’t care, as long as Daenerys gets a nice shiny throne.
Q. Is BBC Sherlock so amazing because we get so little of it?
A. Unique Geek: It’s amazing because we get just the right amount of it. It manages to be simultaneously long enough to be satisfying and short enough to make you want more. They know how to handle a cliffhanger, but they’ve never drawn anything out to the point where you want things to move a but faster. I guess I’m saying it’s amazing because the pacing is perfect.
Critique Geek: Yes, that. What Unique said.
Q. Why is Freak Geek Moffat’s horcrux?
A. Critique Geek: Once upon a time, Freak Geek started having BBC Sherlock dreams. These dreams were mysteriously about season three of Sherlock… and then they started coming true as confirmed by Setlock pictures. Let’s see, dreams of things only Moffat would know, occasionally feeling the desire to watch fandoms burn… I think she’s Moffat’s horcrux. Clearly Moffat got a prophecy of a writer that would challenge his level of evil and sought to destroy baby Freak Geek, only to have it backfire when a piece of his soul implanted itself inside Freak Geek. It’s the only logical explanation.
Freak Geek: You’re forgetting the part where I dreamed through the entire Impossible Girl plotline before Amy and Rory even fell off a building, and I wasn’t even a DW fan at the time.
Q. If the Doctor showed up and offered to take you to any WHEN in the TARDIS, where would you go and what would you do?
A. Unique Geek: I would go to the Alvin (now the Neil Simon) Theatre on April 26, 1970 and see the original broadway cast of Company on opening night.
Critique Geek: Europe in the 1920’s, where I would travel, party, and write with members of the Lost Generation, specifically Fitzgerald and Eliot.
Freak Geek: October 31st, 1997, Shinjuku Loft, Tokyo for the most legendary Kuroyume gig of all time. Then I’d rock my way through the 90s and 80s. Woodstock. Rolling Stones shows back when they were young. The British Invasion. The beginnings of the Outlaw Country movement, what with Johnny Cash being the Man in Black and all that. And then I’d settle down somewhere in 1968 with my hubby and our guitar collection, and live those years over again. I don’t belong in this generation.
Q. How do you stand watching the world burn?
A. Freak Geek: I usually do it with a guitar in hand, and a crown on my head. I enjoy it immensely.
Critique Geek: I sit back with a cocktail and cackle as Freak Geek burns the world down. Because it’s all her fault. I didn’t indirectly blow up the Supernatural fandom or anything.
Freak Geek: Everything Misha Collins does with Doctor Who things is all Amber’s fault. All of it.
Q. What do you do when you’re not blogging?
A. Unique Geek: Crying about things we blog about, screeching at each other, having conversations consisting entirely of pop culture references and inside jokes.
Critique Geek: Read, flail, troll the Internet, weep over the perfection that is Benedict Cumberbatch, have entire conversations in GIFs, and ship my friends with one another.
Freak Geek: There is nothing but writing. Well, okay, occasionally I play guitar, because I love music more than I love life but basically I’m just writing 16 hours a day. And then there’s Supernatural fan fiction.
Critique Geek: During our OTP wars she read Wincest in order to gain a better understanding of the fandom. It all went downhill from there.
Freak Geek: Well, my sanity and my eyesight went MIA after that, but on the bright side, a friend of mine was sent a tonne of black metal lyrics based on the horrors I have lived through. It’s all good.
