Yes, that was me in the swirly black and red cloak on the dancefloor at [livejournal.com profile] wincon looking like a goth dork! What can I say - if you can't wear a cape to a fangirl con, where can you wear one? ;D

Thanks SO much to all the amazing fangirls who welcomed a lost-looking newbie and made me feel accepted in my fannishness!

For the time it was to talk of many things: of characters and comics, OTPs and boys with wings. Tumblrs and RPF, and #overheardatwincon. Rocky Horror Picture Show and don't forget (never forget) the genius and beauty that was WinProm!

Everlasting thanks to [livejournal.com profile] zubeneschamali and [livejournal.com profile] electricalgwen for taking me under their wings, and some quality conversation! ♥ ♥ ♥ You ladies just made the con for me! And you are awesome dancers - true fax!

[livejournal.com profile] gestaltrose, you were the first person to welcome me to the con, and you were super sweet and made me feel one hundred percent (well, 97%, I am REALLY awkward, one person can only do so much) less awkward, so you have my eternal gratitude. And [livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c thanks for letting me hang out with you guys. You are a total star, as everyone well knows! [livejournal.com profile] girlguidejones and everyone else who stopped by to say "hi" and be nice to the newbie, I love you for it - my bad eyesight and truly pathetic lack of memory for faces (like, prosopagnasia bad) means matching names to faces, nevermind usernames, is an adventure every time and one I frequently fail at! So, Dee, of the Rocky Horror prop bags and beautiful self-customised Wincon swag, 'Popcorn girl' will friend you as soon as my stupid memory kicks me in the ass, and I just want you to know that I deeply appreciate you not laughing at me sprawling on the floor of the lounge, trying to cure my migraine with the vibrations coming up through the floor of the "club" downstairs. XD

Also, kudos and worship to all those who did all the hard work of setting up and running such an incredible con! You guys are intimidating in your awesomeness! I promise if I get to go next year, I will try to be less of a trial to the nerves. *pinky swears*

[livejournal.com profile] tsukinofaerii, comics guru/writer goddess, I will follow you over on Dreamwidth, because you rock like the ages. #Steve/Tony #Avengers forever!

Looking back on it, I think maybe I weirded [livejournal.com profile] celtic_cookie out by being so intimidated by her fabulousness. Super confident people always make me react like a skittish cat in a room full of rocking chairs. IDEK So, anyone who reads this, I do apologize for my ingrained introverted ways. I gotta be me, I guess *_*

Now back to the retail grind :/

*glomps you* Thanks for being so much fun to hang out with and for helping this introvert have a good time, too. :D

You are awesome and I'm sure I was way more awkward at my first wincon. Thank you so much. *smishes you*

Friends are so cool!

Oh my gosh, thank you for being so friendly and fun. It was my first Wincon too and I was nervous, but I had a great time. Especially dancing!

Also: I was just skimming over your LJ and noticed Yaz in the soundtrack. HOW DID THIS NOT COME UP IN CONVERSATION. And, next year the dance soundtrack NEEDS to include Depeche Mode's remix of Route 66. :D

I am ALL about the 80's New Wave, especially the dance-y stuff! If it had a video on MTV between '81 and '85, I've got it somewhere. I was wishing at Wincon that they would play some of the less kitschy stuff. But I did ask her to play some early 'Mode, and she did, so that was sweet!

The remix with Behind the Wheel? Hell to the yes! XD XD XD

Any Yaz. Any Depeche Mode. Any early INXS (The One Thing, Don't Change). Early New Order (Substance!). And possibly the Communard's cover of Never Can Say Goodbye should be in there somewhere. What are your feelings on Erasure?

Tell me to stop, because if I can find someone to geek with about my favorite tunes, I will never shut up. So please, talk dance music to me! ;-)
