About Me

Hi, my name is Patricia and I'm a fangirl. I live in Northern California with my husband, our daughter, two cats and two fish.

I'm in my early 40s, and I am Autistic (no official diagnosis as of now, but I am at least neurodivergent). I realized it as an adult, because my child is autistic (diagnosed). The more I learned about her brain and how it works, the more my own life made sense.

That's partly where this domain name comes from. There's a joke almost in the community about "savant" skills. We don't all have them (my daughter does), but it's a common stereotype. However, if there was ever something I'm very good at, it's fixating on my fandoms, and learning more about them.
