Dragon*Con
 
Well, LOTS happened this year. I went to the George Perez panel. I met a ton of awesome online people. I went to the Nichelle Nichols panel! I got a picture of Haldir in a muscle shirt. I very nearly ran into Felicia Day. (Literally. I wasn't watching where I was going, she was rushing towards a panel.) I had a totally different sleep schedule than most of my room, but I had one fabulous night chatting with [personal profile] pocky_slash, [personal profile] pressdbtwnpages and [personal profile] chiasmus until I fell asleep. (I kept doing that. Oops.)
 
But, well, I very nearly cancelled this year until the Torchwood guests were announced, so it isn't hard to figure out which panels I planned my schedule around.
 
DRAGON*CON: A WEEKEND OF KAI AND VOLDEMORT )

OVERALL it was amazing. Too short, too fast and slightly too sleep-deprived, but amazing. Already bought my ticket for next year. :)

Buying John Barrowman's YA fantasy novel from the Book Depository because it's not being released in the US officially until October. Which is a month too late to get him to sign it at Dragon*Con.

I really like having people sign things that mean something to them. [personal profile] ilizze probably remembers, but I asked GDL to sign his comic (or, really, Torchwood comic issues #2 and #3) and I'm planning to ask Barrowman to sign issue #1 (with a story he wrote) and his book. I'm mildly considering buying his second autobiography to have him sign that too. I do have the first one in ebook edition, but he can't exactly sign that. The first one was a welcome hilarious relief during a really bad time last semester, so I'm definitely planning on reading the second at some point.

I don't know if I want a picture with him, though. I imagine he's going to be charging plenty for both of these, and I still have to figure out pics/signatures/squee for Eve Myles and Kai Owen. Plus, time. I'm super awkward when meeting celebrities, so it's not something I'm dying to spend hours and hours waiting to do. I'd mostly rather have signatures than pictures. Overall I'm a much bigger fan of panels.

Too bad I can't get Kai to sign his twitter feed. Hey, he writes it! THAT would be hilarious.

LOL LOL LOL.

Someone on tumblr linked to one of my Wales Comic Con videos, and the hitcount MORE THAN DOUBLED.

:D

I should probably have posted them on some sort of community, like [community profile] torch_wood or something. Should I do that now, or is it just too late?

Also, Kai Owen has crushed my secret fantasy that he would show up at D*Con with Gareth so I can stalk them together for a weekend. I suppose sports can be an acceptable excuse. Someone want to go to this and tell me all about it? Or...explain the rules of rugby?

I have a twitter, for the curious. I'm not sure why I have it, because even when I make an effort, I don't use it.

But it sends the Torchwood tweets to my phone, so I can get random text messages that are basically ads for every upcoming episode and get IRRATIONALLY EXCITED whenever I see them anyway!

And now that Kai Owen tweeted THIS, his texts are getting sent to my phone! I added Gareth's as well, even though he's a rubbish tweeter. THEY ARE ON THEIR WAY TO AMERICA!

(I should add John Barrowman's because he's occasionally fantastic and hilarious. First, he carries a toy Captain Jack around for scenic photo opps. Second, he clearly made Scott tweet this. TO TOY WITH US. REALLY.)

So, Kai and Gareth are on their way Wizard World Chicago this weekend, and my tentative plans to go with some friends fell through despite everything, so I'm missing it. *sigh*

ANYWAY. TO EVERYONE WHO MIGHT BE GOING.

First, someone get him to talk about filming the radio plays and the ending. I'm pretty sure this is the first thing he's done since they aired, and besides for some offhand comments on his site, he hasn't said anything. And I'm a little curious about the experience of taping them.

ALSO SOMEONE ASK HIM ABOUT THE WAREHOUSE 13 SPIN-OFF. IF IT'S NOT HAPPENING, I NEED TO KNOW BEFORE IT SUCKS AWAY ALL MY HAPPY POINTS.

And then, um, report back to the internet?

Some lovely people have posted his appearances in Sydney and Perth Supanova.

He's a Star Trek TNG geek, everybody. One. Of. Us.

(Oh, and I'm writing the drabbles! The ones on DW got requested first, so they'll be posted first at this rate. And so far it seems that my brain reads "100 words" and spits out 300 automatically. Drabble x3?)
