I was a massive ST:TOS fan from about the ages of ten to twelve. It was my very first fandom. How I quite managed to find, let alone fixate on, a sixties show starring William Shatner remains somewhat of a mystery, but it shaped my fannish personality more than I usually realise.

No surprises, I was always a Spock girl. (Half-breed, coolly logical, scientist -- go figure. Did you know my childhood aspiration was to be an astrophysicist?) I spent my last few years of primary school actually wanting to be a Vulcan. I seem to recall a certain degree of consternation from my parents about the fact their eldest offspring refused to show emotions of any kind for about the entire period of the first Gulf War. I think they thought I was borderline Asperger's or something. Well, maybe they weren't wrong; people never did become my strong suit. BUT ANYWAY.
