Blü (aka Jacqueline) had a steady stream of anime poured through her eyes at an early age, which has set the tone for her philosophical take on life of “people are weird and that’s OK.” Strangely, she hated reading until the sixth grade where she was forced to read an iconic book that shall remain nameless. She has been searching for strong female characters ever since. Blü lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and two cats, Frodo and Castiel.
Blü’s Fandoms (in no particular order):
- Anime: H. Miyazaki Films, Sailor Moon, Soul Eater, FLCL
- YA Novels: Books by Cassandra Clare, Scott Westerfeld, and Holly Black
- Harry Potter
- Lord of the Rings
- DC Universe
- Star Wars
Pebble’s (aka Eri) infatuation with super powers and extraordinary abilities began with her first reading of Roald Dahl’s Matilda. A little girl who could move things with her mind??? Mind. Blown. While Pebble has explored many other powers and abilities through the different fandoms she’s visited, telekinesis will always hold a special place in her heart. Pebble also lives in the San Fransisco Bay Area, but was born and raised in Southern California.
