“Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way or another.”
Origin Story: Emily is a transplant from the east coast and love Portland so much that she pretty much went native the moment her feet touched Oregon soil. She’s currently managing a fairly unhealthy addiction of caffeine as the manager of a bakery and cafe downtown. Occcasionally she enjoys pretending to be someone else in front of large or small groups of people and is usually working on at least three different works of fiction at any given moment. When she’s not doing any of the above, she’s trying not to destroy her kitchen at home with new recipes, going on adventures with her husband, and politely asking her cats to get off the counter.
Geeky Loves: Captain America (and other Marvelous creatures), Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Hunger Games, horror movies, sci-fi, and anything else she can write fanfic for.
Brunch Drink: She’s anybody’s girl for a fresh take on a mimosa or a boozy coffee drink.
Geek Crushes: Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Kat Dennings, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Margot Robbie and Anthony Mackie
“I like being weird. Weird’s all I’ve got. That and my sweet style.” ― Maurice Moss, The IT Crowd
Origin Story: Shereen is a transplant from Arizona, but has lived in Oregon so long that she considers herself a native. She lives with her geeky husband and her dog. She loves to travel and as such has been blogging about budget travel and her personal trips since 2010. If you want to go anywhere in the world, Shereen knows the tips to get you there cheaper. She’ll never turn down a trip to a Disney park or Universal Studios and is a huge Potterhead. This Ravenclaw obsessively plans an annual Harry Potter Birthday party each year with new themes and difficult trivia for House Points.
Shereen is new to cosplay, but loves to attend as many cons in the Portland area as she can. She watches way too much TV, sees a new movie practically every weekend and is a proud member of the Portland chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance. If you also complete your friend’s sentences with song lyrics or movie quotes, or can equate any situation to Harry Potter, you are similar nerds.
Geeky Loves: Harry Potter, Disney, Walking Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool, Halloween, Horror Movies, British comedy, Clive Barker, Bill & Ted, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Brunch Drink: A coffee big enough to swim in, if there’s whiskey involved, even better
Geek Crushes: Chris Pratt in pretty much anything (but especially GotG and Jurassic World), John Wick, Deadpool
“ The hardest thing in this world is to live in it. Be brave. Live.” – Buffy Summers, ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’

To survive, she currently works processing incentives data for those that update/upgrade their buildings and homes to save the environment and use less resources. She lives in Lake Oswego with her boyfriend, their dog (Finn) and cat (Rose). Her car’s name is JARVIS.
