Meet Your Houston Officers
Amanda’s Origin Story
Amanda was quite the little nerd growing up. Her favorite memories include The Lion King on Sega Genesis, X-Men and Power Rangers on FOX Saturday Morning Cartoons, and playing with her brother and his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As she grew older, she discovered more fandoms and realized she was destined to be a mega-nerd. Amanda is an IT guru by day, and by night, she is pwning noobs on League of Legends. Though she is quite introverted, she seems to open up when nerdy people are around. Her current obsessions include, but are not limited to: I Want To Eat Your Pancreas (manga) and Fruits Basket (manga), Supernatural (she recently started watching), and anything true crime.
Geeky Top Ten: Batgirl, Sailor Moon, League of Legends, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, Rat Queens, Attack on Titan, Re:Zero, and Harry Potter.
Brunch Drink: Espresso martini or a good local craft beer IPA
Fictional Boyfriend: Sam Winchester, Nightwing, or Jon Snow <3
Clarisse’s Origin Story
Clarisse started watching anime before knowing what anime was, with Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon. The arcade was the funnest place for her in her primary years and Indiana Jones was her first-ever crush (that side grin could kill). She met her closest group of friends in middle school by running a Disney trivia game during lunch. On the bus rides in high school, Clarisse role-played in the Harry Potter universe with a brilliant posse of half-bloods. Somewhere between Neon Genesis Evangelion and A Tale of Two Sisters, Clarisse started developing the taste for psychologically tilted stories. If it’s f’d up, Clarisse will probably be interested in it. She also firmly believes that if most super villains had gotten laid, most of the awful shit wouldn’t have happened. Not Hitler, though. There was no helping that guy.
Clarisse currently enjoys working in accounting, taking photos, reading wikis & journaling during her (nonexistent) free time. She lives in central south Houston with her husband and toddler son.
Geeky Top 10: Firefly, Saga, Bioshock: Infinite, Oyasumi Punpun, horror films, sci-fi (recently: Love, Death & Robots), Aggretsuko, Disney, chiptune & its derivatives, Devilman:Crybaby
