Well, "Pollyanna" was in the lead, but I want to write something....crossover-y. So you know what that means? Tell me which pony you want to see travel with the Doctor in the TARDIS!

Interests

Well, I'm back from San Fran and BabsCon and despite a number of hiccups, it was an absolute epic convention and super enjoyable.

The panel I was on went spectacular and we had some great feedback with our turn out. We discussed on how fan-fiction could be viewed as legitimate art and writing despite the negative reputation it has with it.

Speaking of panels, I went to the 'Bronies: Anaylsis of the Fandom and Gender" and it was absolutely fantastic and it was great to hear what Prof. Sam Miller had to say about it. In fact, we had an amazing discussion between ourselves in line for our badges on Thursday. At the panel, he touched on how the MLP show and fandom is viewed by others and how we, the fans, feel about our love of the show. It was great to see the turn out.

Another panel that I loved going to was the "My Little LGBTQ Pony" panel, where many bronies and pegasisters got up and shared how the show has helped them out with how they were and how the show has impacted their life. I actually went up twice and shared how the show reminded me that it's okay to be me, a heterosexual male that is feminine in certain aspects. Sure, I'm nothing like some of the people who went up and shared their powerful stories, but I just felt so relieved to share in a comforting environment.

As for things I bought, plenty of awesome stuff. A number of commissions (ponies and Mr. Saturn from Earthbound/Mother), some awesome prints, a CMC tie, and bunch of other little doo-das.

And lastly, I ran into some amazing people, new and old. Let's see, where should I start? KK Slider, Regidar, totallynotabrony, Dana Simpson, ScrewLoose, Purple Tinker, LateCustomer, Rat Of Drawn, Ponywise, horizon, DarkFlare, Pika Petey, Prof. Sam Miller, Duster Dawnhorse, Kukki-chan, Ashley Nichols, Kaji-Uma, and so....so....so many more amazing people up there. It was great to see you all up there.


AND NOW FOR THE BAD NEWS:

On the way home with Josh Meihaus from San Fran, I was stupid, did not pay attention to where my hand was, and closed the door on my finger. Here's an image if your interested in seeing what happened: fair warning, it's not exactly pretty. So what does this mean? It means I will be out of writing for a bit. In fact, typing this just now is extremely painful on it. But, I will try my best to get something written because thanks to talking with people at the con, I've gotten a lot more inspiration to write. With some luck, I'll have 'Wonderful' uploaded at least by Friday, if not sooner. Sorry for the inconvenience, I shall do my best to get something up for all of ya'll, I promise!

And I know I still have the review to write about "Trade Ya". I'll get that done when I can.
