God, this thread topic simply SCREAMS at me to answer in the most juciest of mannerisms... =D

From ages 3 to 9, Sonic the Hedgehog was my LIFE. I could beat any Sonic game with a massive score in only a little over an hour, I had Sonic dolls, toys, I made new Sonic games on paper, made instruction manuals out of paper to go with 'em, I had a VHS tape of 6 hours straight of the slapstick cartoon show (that's not on anymore)... And Sonic was what alienated me from everyone my age at school, for example.

When I was 9, my little brother and I were fighting in the car, and he took my Sonic doll from me and dropped it in the public mailbox. Mom says that ever since that moment, I never cared about Sonic again. It died for me then.

But that's a little inaccurate! My zealous obsession might've died, but a few years later I got back into it, not as an obsession, but as a pastime and respected hobby. I still play the old-school, Sega Genesis Sonic the Hedgehog games to this day, on my Sega Genesis that I've had since I was four, and always look to improve my high-scores or challenge others at Sonic 2 Versus Mode. =D

Right now, writing is my big perseveration. My website will tell you the same. ;)

God, I'm glad I saw this thread here. ^,^

My main obsession is being an artist. That's wht I have been obsessed with. It's my God-given talent (knock on wood) and what I used to be obsessed with.

Usually, I concentrate over a revolving series of things. It's always one thing but eventually i get bored with it and slowly go on to something else. And I never wake up one day and say "Today it's going to be Asparagus." I just find myself one day desperately fixated on one thing with no real idea when I first fell in love with it and when I abandoned the previous thing I had fixated over. I just kind of wake up in the middle of something, so to speak, and think to myself "I love video game graphic creation all of a sudden? How long ago did this happen..."

If there's one thing i have always been fixated on, it's simply how things are made. This is what I have had a life-long passion for. To learn how things are simply made and put together. And i can't stop that desire. I get a real kick of knowing how everything is built and made. I have this absolutely unquenchable thrist for knowledge.

I'm also quite passionate about the Final Fantasy rpg series. I have been playing those games since they were released to the U.S. in 1990. And now I'm a die-hard fan. The games are extremely well made so I don't know what's the fixation and what's devoted fan-boyness.

It seems a lot of people in the AS/HFA community have some type of at least -interest- in the human brain. I personally am obsessed with learning about disorders, how the mind works, psycho-psychology etc. This is also how I learned about AS/HFA. I digress.

Brain 'disorders' the way it works, etc.

I am currently obsessing over maximizing a human (female) appearance in order to appeal the widest spectrum of people with the demographic destribution of different countries. (This is work related for me). Once I am satisfied with the physical things around me, I'll be back to obsessing over physics, mathematics, computers, and "random topics".

I use to obsess over brains and effects of drugs and "disorders" on brains... and psychology, medicine, physiology, etc. when I was 12-16. Dexterity off and on throughout my life.

I didn't think I had an obsession, because there isn't any subject which I talk about ad nauseam at social gatherings like (according to what I read somewhere) Aspies often do. But my wife has pointed out that I have had a series of obsessions anyway, in the sense of interests that I follow obsessively. They have tended to follow one after the other. Current one is photography. Previously it was cycling. Before that it was taping music off radio and records and CDs. Before that it was bushwalking. Before that it was buying books. Then it was drawing up charts and tables. From time to time there have been shortlived ones like collecting old railway tickets when I was a kid.

Yeah, mine are pretty much chronological as well...

Animals [Age 4-7...when I was out for Halloween at the ripe age of four, I'd knock on the door and say...*biiiig breath* "Trick or treat! Do you have a dog? Do you have a cat? Are you married? Can I see? Do you have kids?" And generally, the door would get shut and some candy would get tossed in my face.]

Music and Reading [7-10] I was a huge reader...one summer I read 546 books and I barely got out of the house.

Theatre and Music [Up to now...Basically, it's been prominent through my entire life. Probably because I've been brought up in a theatre based household. My dad appreciates it, my mom tolerates it, I lose sleep over it. :) But, like I said in my Overture post, I'm very interested in theatre and music, specifically production and acting and everything that goes along with it, and I can talk endlessly over the idiocy of Tarzan on Broadway. :)

Lately, since my mom's a shrink, I've been pretty interested and somewhat engrossed with psychological diagnosis and I tend to blab on and on about my Prozac and the effects it has on my body to anyone who will listen. :) But it doesn't interfere with the theatre. Don't worry.

My obsessions? From an early age, I couldn't get enough information or books on dinosaurs. I loved reading about them, having models of them and going to the Natural History Museum to see their bones and models of them - in fact, I went there recently with a close friend, and I was babbling away like a little kid.

Comics (mostly X-Men and similar superheroes) and cartoons (Transformers cartoons, in particular) are a big influence these days. My screen name, in fact, is taken from my favourite X-Men villain, and it's one I've tried to use wherever I go on the web, and I have built up a massive collection of action figures thanks to this obsession. I'm actually running out of room to live :oops:

I find military history fascinating, particularly that of the Vietnam War (my shelves are bulging with autobiographical and historical texts on that war, as well as history books on the American Civil War).
