Going to the Sherlock Con this weekend in Seattle? [livejournal.com profile] slashcast is sponsoring a slash meetup on Friday night before the con gets started! Come hang out with your fellow slashers and get to know some of the people you’ll spend the weekend with.

And there’s great Sherlock swag and some completely awesome door prizes!

Space and swag are LIMITED, so please RSVP to emmagrant01 AT gmail DOT com so we’ll know to expect you.

The bar where the meetup is hosted is a 21+ space (hard to find much else on short notice, unfortunately), so bring your ID!

Woot! Come join the fun!

[livejournal.com profile] chaeche, [livejournal.com profile] pennswoods, and I are hosting a Sherlock Suite at Ascendio, so the meet-up kind of goes on all weekend. :-D

Also, [livejournal.com profile] chaeche and I will be hosting a Sherlock suite at Ascendio! [livejournal.com profile] pennswoods has plans to help us turn it into 221B, so it should be a fantastic hangout spot for Sherlock fans at the con. Friend/join the comm for more info on Sherlockian activities that are being planned for those of us who'll be there to slash in many fandoms. :-D
emmagrant01: (Portus)
I'm driving to Dallas tomorrow for Portus, OMG!! I should arrive in the early afternoon, and if BG is cooperative will wander around to look for anyone I know. Who else is going to be there Wednesday?

I am putting the finishing touches on costumes for me and BG today. We'll be in school robes one day (I've decided he's a Gryffindor, while I'm a Ravenclaw), and we'll be dressed as Tonks and Teddy another day. Please come and say hello if you see us! Mr. Grant has graciously offered to come up to Dallas on Thursday night and will be doing some babysitting, so that will free me up to do more con stuff than I had originally thought I might be able to do. Yay!

Speaking of con stuff, there will be an informal Harry/Draco meet-up on Thursday afternoon at 4:00. We will be meeting in the Tower Lobby and then will find a place to go sit, probably one of the nearby cafes or bars. I've got H/D buttons to hand out, so stop by to pick one up. I have about 100 of them, so if you can't make the meetup, just ask me for one when you see me. I'll be the one breastfeeding in the back of the slash panels. ;-)

Eee, see you guys soon!
emmagrant01: (got slash?)
I just got back from a weekend in the middle of Missouri at an HP gathering called Wrockstock. It was basically a wizard rock festival, but a group of slashers within a reasonable distance decided it was a good excuse to get together for the weekend. We had some issues with the organizers early on, but happily had no contact with them during the event. (I won't attend anything organized by them again, as they were incredibly unprofessional and even vindictive to several of us in personal communications.)

We rented a cabin and spent most of the weekend hanging out in it, relaxing, talking slash, drabbling and drawbling, and generally having great time. We made it down for a few of the bands, and that was fun, but for the most part we were there for the slash. The others who went were [livejournal.com profile] daddybear716, [livejournal.com profile] abovethestars, [livejournal.com profile] rubytuesday5681, [livejournal.com profile] dramedy, [livejournal.com profile] mijan, [livejournal.com profile] fiona_fawkes, [livejournal.com profile] sesheta_66, [livejournal.com profile] alaana_fair and [livejournal.com profile] melmoe1.

More rambling thoughts about the weekend here. )

And now I'll be disappearing from the internets for a little while. I need to focus on getting my fics for holiday exchanges done! I'll be around, but I'm going to try to stay off my flist as much as possible until I make some significant progress. Happy Halloween, everyone!
emmagrant01: (got slash?)
I'm about to head off for a weekend in the woods with a bunch of slashers (at Wrockstock), yay! This is going to be SO much fun. We're all staying together in the big gay cabin of slash and will be bringing the slash to the festival whether they want us to or not, heh. I just put the finishing touches on my pregnant!Tonks costume yesterday -- it looks awesome, and I'm excited to show it off.

Have a good weekend! :-D

PS: No internet access in the woods, so I will be offline until Monday.

I just came home from a hilarious evening hanging out in a pub with [livejournal.com profile] moony, [livejournal.com profile] phaballa, [livejournal.com profile] stargategirl82, and [livejournal.com profile] bansheeqwn. Dude, we laughed until we cried, especially when recounting the plots of badfics we've read and comparing the antics of Bandom and House fandom to HP. I almost peed my pants several times. It was awesome!

I think I really needed a little fandom get-together this week. We have a lovely little group here and half of us were even missing. We ought to do it more often, all together!
emmagrant01: (DH waiting)
This was originally posted to [livejournal.com profile] hp_centraltx, but I know many folks are avoiding communities this week, so I'm reposting it here.

I had to cancel my trip to Sectus, and one of the things I was most looking forward to there was the reading party. The idea of reading the final HP book in a room with other fans sounded so exciting. Fandom for me is so much about sharing the experience with other fans, and the idea of reading the final HP book all alone was a little depressing.

So I will be hosting a reading party at my house in Austin this weekend!

I'll be picking my book up at midnight at Book People on Sixth Street and then heading home to start reading, and I would be happy to have people over to read, whenever they want to start. You could come at 1:00 am, 8:00 am, 1:00 pm, whatever -- anytime on Saturday. I have lots of space and places for people to sit around and read. There are several bedrooms where you could go take a nap when you need to, and I'll set aside a "spoiler room" for anyone who wants to go and talk about what they've just read.

I'll fire up the home theater system for anyone who wants to take a break and watch a movie, or for those who don't plan on binge reading. ([livejournal.com profile] phaballa is bringing the DVDs of Hex, and I have a ton of other DVDs to choose from.) I have wireless, so you can bring your laptops and keep up with what's going on on LJ, even.

We'll order in food, drink coffee, and just share the experience of reading the last book together.

If you're in the area and are interested in coming anytime on Saturday, comment here and I'll send you more information.

In case anyone in the Austin area missed it, we're having a slash get-together on March 17, which involves hanging out at my house and watching gay-themed movies, and possible drunken karaoke. ;-) Info here.

Had coffee today with [livejournal.com profile] elanor_isolda, [livejournal.com profile] lazy_daze, [livejournal.com profile] balefully, [livejournal.com profile] czeri, [livejournal.com profile] joosetta, [livejournal.com profile] lizardspots, [livejournal.com profile] clara_swift (who brought Qui and Obi along, as usual :-D), and [livejournal.com profile] sue_chose_this. There was much t00bage, and multifandom t00bage at that. It was nice to see all of you again!

That house quiz thingie. My result? )

On a complete different note, [livejournal.com profile] jedirita came up on Friday night and the three of us (she, MDH, and I) cooked dinner together and hung out, and then Rita showed me some of her favorite Xena episodes. She left me the first two seasons of Xena in exchange for the first two seasons of Angel. And she taught us how to make samosas -- yum.

I hosted a fandom meet-up today at my house, and we had a blast! We watched Velvet Goldmine (worth it for the Ewan McGregor/JRM action alone), Sex, Politics, & Cocktails (a coming-out indie film that I don't think anyone else had seen), and the first episode of the UK Queer as Folk (and some of the folks there had never seen any QAF, so that was fun). We ran out of time before we could get to Damon & Hunter, but we'll just have to save it for another time. It was one of the biggest crowds we've had yet at a local meet-up, with [livejournal.com profile] jedirita, [livejournal.com profile] phaballa, [livejournal.com profile] stargategirl82, [livejournal.com profile] complete, [livejournal.com profile] maybe_someday8, [livejournal.com profile] aluinnsearlait and her friend Sara, whose LJ name I didn't catch, [livejournal.com profile] stephanometra, [livejournal.com profile] anoneknewmoose and [livejournal.com profile] prestonsbarr. That's almost a third of the folks on the [livejournal.com profile] hp_centraltx comm, so it was a good turnout! MDH was quite patient for someone whose home had been taken over by fangirls for the day. But at this point, he's pretty much used to it. ;-)
emmagrant01: (got slash?)
Tomorrow night is the Austin slash meet-up at the Alamo Drafthouse downtown for the Boyband singalong! [livejournal.com profile] phaballa guarantees it's an amazing fannish experience. I'm bringing Slashcast goodies! Information is here, and we'd love to see more folks come. :-D

Edit: Ann Richards died? *sniff* End of an era.

[livejournal.com profile] goldie: It seems this is my room that everyone's partying in, yeah. So far, I've distributed a kilogram of tim tams, got at least five minors drunk and discovered that [livejournal.com profile] spurious and [livejournal.com profile] lazy_daze have very talented mouths. ....o_O.

And just so you know, f says "come to the crack panel." Which, of course, we will all be at, because who doesn't love some crack? Wish everyone was able to come, but there's always next year, right? BYE!!

[livejournal.com profile] emmagrant01: And security just came by and said we're on the verge of getting kicked out, so the party is moving down to the jacuzzi... :-D
emmagrant01: (Lumos slots)
OMG just a few days until Lumos!

This is mostly for my own reference, but also here for any friends who might be looking for me -- or anyone who hasn't yet figured out what events they're going to and wants to see what I'm doing in order to avoid me. ;-) I somehow wound up on four panels in addition to teaching in the Magical Night Classes, so it's going to be a busy weekend!

If you know of any meet-ups you think I'd be interested in that I haven't mentioned in here, please let me know. There was an awesome [livejournal.com profile] pornish_pixies meet-up at TWH, but I haven't heard if there's one planned for Lumos.

Also, we'll be recording segments for [livejournal.com profile] slashcast and handing out Slashcast buttons throughout Lumos, so be sure to ask for a button from me, [livejournal.com profile] amanuensis1, [livejournal.com profile] glockgal, [livejournal.com profile] karaz, [livejournal.com profile] kerryblaze, [livejournal.com profile] longleggedgit, or Aspen ([livejournal.com profile] cursescar).

Wednesday )

Thursday )

Friday )

Saturday )

Sunday )

So what am I missing?  Other get-togethers?  Also, I'm not leaving until Monday afternoon. Who else is sticking around?

ETA: Very Happy Birthdays to [livejournal.com profile] wordplay (we're the same age now, mwahaha!) and [livejournal.com profile] coffeejunkii (see you soon!). Also, a very Happy First Anniversary to [livejournal.com profile] hearts_n_roses and her lovely wife!

I just got back from an evening of hanging out in the infamous Snape's Pub with [livejournal.com profile] lazy_daze, [livejournal.com profile] balefully, [livejournal.com profile] son_of_darkness, and [livejournal.com profile] pitchblackrose. A lot of alcohol was drunk and much fandom gossip was shared. Are your ears burning, flist? *grins*

But seriously, it was so much fun to get to see these folks again, and I really appreciate them taking the time to come and hang out with me on a Thursday night!

Oh, and I have to report one funny moment from late in the evening when a random drunk guy came and sat at our table to flirt with [livejournal.com profile] lazy_daze. His astoundingly smooth pick-up line: "So, have you ever kissed a dead body?" And she turned to me and said, "Hey, have you ever read that one Harry/dead!James fic where he's fucking him and feels all the maggots squirming around his cock?" I've never seen a guy leave quite so quickly, heh. ;-)

ETA: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] charlotteschaos for the link to the/a Harry/dead!James fic. I'm just not ready to read it again yet. :-P

Went to a Buffy sing-along last night with [livejournal.com profile] phaballa and friends, and it was such a blast. I've only ever watched brief parts of a handful of Buffy episodes, and I'd never seen the musical one -- but I have to say sitting in a movie theater and watching it with a hundred drunk and crazy Buffy fen is definitely the best way to do it!

*tries to resist urge to go look for Spike/Xander slash*
emmagrant01: (dork mark)
We had a LOT of fun on Saturday night, and I'm so happy to have had the chance to meet all these wonderful women! When I posted that I'd be in New York and asked if people wanted to get together, I had no idea the response would be so huge! There were 20 of us all being fangirly and naughty, and we all had a blast!

Naughty pics behind the cut )
emmagrant01: (A cutie)
I'm in the NYC area next weekend, and I have Saturday evening (2/25) free. Anyone want to hang out with me, Sam, Kerry, et al? We're thinking dinner, drinks, gay clubs...
emmagrant01: (A cutie)
I had a great meetup last Saturday with a bunch of HP folks I hadn't met before, and we had a blast! There was [livejournal.com profile] lazy_daze (whom I've been wanting to meet for a while and will see again at Lumos, yay!), her roommate [livejournal.com profile] baleheadbabe (who was lots of fun and is also going to Lumos), [livejournal.com profile] raelinschaos (who was so sweet and funny), [livejournal.com profile] son_of_darkness (who was completely adorable), [livejournal.com profile] nightwish_fan (who was the first to arrive and told me my accent was cute, hee), [livejournal.com profile] ias (whom I'd been hoping to have a chance to meet for a while and with whom I chatted about all sorts of academicky stuff), [livejournal.com profile] lizardspots (whom you all know is a fantastic artist but is also an incredibly sweet and lovely person), [livejournal.com profile] pitchblackrose (who joined us a little late and wow, is from Iceland!), and [livejournal.com profile] dora_the_nymph (very nice and sweet). Ack, I hope I haven't forgotten anyone!

We drank coffee and talked and laughed, and Lizard drew a stunning Harry/Cedric pic (that I am writing a fic for, stay tuned) and generally frightened the people around us. It was so much fun to meet you all! *massive hugs*

Oh, and from scanning their LJs I see they all continued to have lots of fun that day! *grins* I'm a bit jealous -- I would have loved to hang out longer, but alas, we had made plans. FWIW, that night I got to see MDH's very upper class boss get extremely drunk at a restaurant and begin making rude comments to women with boob jobs. 0_o

And Sunday in the Park with George was AWESOME, [livejournal.com profile] ias!
