WriterConUK 2010!

I'm so excited! It's coming up fast and if last year is anything to go by, and the year before and the year before that, etc., it'll be brilliant! Lots of chat and laughter, good food, copious alchol for those so inclined (who, me?) and a bit of education chucked in. What could be better?

It's the weekend 6-8 August in Coventry, starts with a social gathering on Friday night, follows with talks by those members who are willing to impart their (considerable) knowledge about all aspects of fandom, from writing to art to betaing to reviewing, and ends with a raffle. All events should end with a raffle. Must tell Showmasters. *g*

If you fancy a wonderful weekend where you can talk about your favourite fandom(s), OTP(s), get into a deep conversation about why you prefer gen, het, slash, femslash, tentacle porn and not have to worry for a second that you've been too geeky, register here or express an interest! The more fandoms covered, the better. Makes for more interesting chat and your horizons may be broadened.

That sounded better in my head. :P

Ooh, nearly forgot. There's a Facebook page, thanks to hils. I owe ya, hon. Invite your FB friends! They probably won't hate you too much. *g*

What? You are banning tentacle porn? The country is going to the dogs.

I blame the Government.

I really am oh so tempted to go to this.

Just need to check that I can get that weekend off.

Here's hoping you can! It's a good laugh and you know how much fun cons are. Jabber all you want about fandom and porn and no one gives you the evil eye. *g*

OMG THAT CAS ICON I MUST HAVE IT!

Ahem.

Hi.

LMAO! Take it! The flister I nicked it from doesn't know who made it so it's fair game unless someone comes forward and says it's not shareable.

I wish I knew who made it so I could credit. Love it!

Hi. *g*

Cas is adorable. He needs cuddles

You have lot of Cas icons for someone who isn't much of a Dean/Cas shipper ;)

LOL! You've now seen my only two Cas icons. I'm a leetle bit of a Dean/Cas shipper, around the edges, so needed a couple.

Come to think of it, I only need them when I'm talking to you! And occasionally sweet_exile. :P

LOL! We know their epic love cannot be denied

Except when I'm shipping Castiel with Sam

EPIC. Though not as epic as J2. *g*

I love the out-of-left-fieldness of Sam/Cas, though Dean/Cas is practically canon. *nods hard*

I've been shipping Sam/Cas on the side for ages! It wasn't left field for me

In canon terms, Dean/Cas is much more likely but there's something ever so cute about Sam/Cas. It's not one of my OTPs but I could read the odd fic or ten. *g*

I wish you could be there too! It's much smaller than the US event but we have a wonderful time. A great social gathering of like-minded people with some information thrown in. Perfect!

Banning tentacle porn? I'll have no part of such heresy I tell you!

o:O I'm shocked at myself for the terrible intolerance! You and hawera have shown me the error of my anti-octopus-or-alien ways. *shakes head sadly*

LOL You know I didnt even know what it was until about a year ago when Kimmy told me about it.

Mind you, I didn't discover what rimming was until 07, that's some information I could have done without ever knowing LOL I mean, no judging or anything and whatever floats your boat blah yada, but living in ignorance about it would have been nice...

Reminds me of this, from my Aussieland picspams when I was in the Royal Mint there...

*falls off chair, clutching sides*

Who knew the Royal Mint was so...er, open?

*giggles uncontrollably*

To be completely fair, I was a bit vague about rimming until I got heavily into slash!fic. It's pretty hard to avoid in that genre. *g*

LOL I saw many funny things in Aussieland, best country EVER!

Aussieland, best country EVER!

It so is! Though I'm glad we went to The Hub in Northampton. Supernova was on in Brisbane over the weekend, and wasn't all that good, apparently. An American friend flew all the way there. Buying convention tickets is a lottery!

As ever, I'm going to have to get my kicks vicariously through you and Maz. I will expect lots of good gossip and I may have to come up with a tentacle drabble just for the hell of it! :)

Tentacle drabble FTW! \0/

Much gossip will be relayed and much missing of you will be had! It'd be wondeful if you could come back and visit one day.

That's such a brilliant idea! I wonder if we'd need a licence to show the ep...

I'm hoping to be in attendance again, this year. It's such a good weekend.

(I've just befriended you, BTW, if that's OK.)

It'd be lovely to see you again! Hope you can make it.

I've friended you back. :D
