How do you relate to the term "geekery" or "geek"?

I consider myself a theater geek. I've always loved theater and musicals in particular my whole life, and in high school I got into the production / tech theater aspect of some shows. I like some obscure shows no one's heard of and when I meet someone who has heard of them they become my favorite person. I'm a fangirl of various movies and shows and books as well, write and read copious fanfiction and help soundboard and edit fanfic written by my friends. A lot of people dismiss fanfiction without really considering it or what it means to people.

What are some of the activities that you enjoy doing? (You may wish to share, in particular, any that might be considered geeky.)

Swing dancing, rockclimbing, guitar playing, theater, the aforementioned fanfic, playing flowfree and surfing tvtropes

What are a few of your favorite things? (Book titles, games, places, movies, tv shows, restaurants, band names, brown-paper-packages-tied-up-with-string, etc.)

Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Les Miserables, The Devil's Carnival, Suits (the show), suits (on people), fandoms in general, Elementary, Game of Thrones, Saw 3 (horror masterpiece), Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, The Decemberists, epic songs (that tell an epic story), Phantom of the Opera, opera ghosts generally

In joining Geekery, what type of meet-ups are you hoping to find? (Gaming, evenings out, new restaurants, trivia, movies, outdoor stuff, museums, etc.)

Pretty much anything. I just want to make friends.


I like to write, play guitar, rockclimb snuggle with my cats, and do pretty much anything theater-related. Also hugs, those are pretty awesome. I'm a recent college grad and I'd love to make some friends in Madison.
