About Us

Once upon a time, the Collective team failed to obtain passes to Comic Con International. In 2013, we gnashed our teeth and tore our clothes, angered and confused. Out of the ashes of bitter disappointment rose a phoenix of an idea: unleash our geeky prowess upon the blog-o-sphere so that someday (with any luck) we would be able to register for a press Comic Con International badge and live our dream to mingle with the nerdiest of fandoms, those entities of singular passions and questionable fashion sense. In 2015, our geek life goal came to fruition and we strutted our stuff with the mightiest of fandoms in San Diego, and now that we’ve made it, we’re determined to carry on with our professional fangirling.

Meet The Collectress: Writer, Owner and Social Media Maven

IMG_8135The Collectress was born to Abnegation parents at the beginning of the Fourth Age of Middle-earth (sadly, she missed the hullabaloo with the Ring). She graduated with a M.A. in Muggle Literature, and as a proud member of Slytherin House, she emerged victorious in the 2012 Intellectual Hunger Games. Currently, she attends literary salons by day and by night, she’s the writer your parents never wanted you to read.  Follow the Collectress on Twitter @dearcollectress 

Meet The Collected Mutineer: Editor of Photography, Staff Writer, and Tag Wrangler

Usually referred to as the Spaniard, the Collected Mutineer hails from the ethereal realm of Dorne. Her Kryptonites are many, and include C.S. Lewis, Alfred Lord Tennyson, various forms of chocolate, and Tom Hiddleston. Her superpowers are being able to read smut in public without blushing, and the ability to photoshop the Padamoose into any photograph. She suffers from fernweh, and longs to be a travel writer who can churn out a best-selling novel now and again. Until then, she survives via fanfiction. For a good pirate joke, follow the Collected Mutineer on Twitter @ImpalaMutineers

Meet C. Diva: Writer, Owner

 

C. Diva once expelled a demon with nothing but a pinch of house salt and the Vulcan Death Grip. She is obsessed with Beyonce and fangirls over hockey like it’s her job. Diva enjoys living in the dumpster and has copious amounts of tea and cookies for when you come over to the Dark Side. Definitely factionless, she always makes time for a good book but often enjoys dirty fan fiction instead. Follow C. Diva on TwitterTumblr, or AO3 but don’t look for her on SnapChat.

Meet The Collected Canadian: Contributing Writer

From a place most cannot spell or pronounce (Saskatchewan), our dear Canadian intern soon found herself living in a cupboard somewhere in America.  She had a cupboard-mate for a while, but was later upgraded to her own cupboard space.  Her petite size is often mistook for being fragile, but her strength is fierce. This neighbor to the North was collected by the Collectress, and given a chance to live a human-like life.  By day, she flies her pterodactyl to and from an office job.  At night, she delves into her demented mind and terrifies anyone who comes near. Follow her on Twitter @TheCollectedOne for more maple madness.

  2. Hey guys! So, I’ve been nominated for a few blog awards in my time and part of the rules is that i have to nominate someone else. Now, there always seems to be a followers limit so I can never nominate you guys, but now I can! I’ve wanted to do this for a long time. I have nominated you guys for a “One Lovely Blog” award. Thank you for always talking nerdy to us 🙂
