As I look back on this journal, I realize it's quite literally been years since my last post... :-) And I think in general much of the fandom world has moved past livejournal and into new forums for sharing stories and ideas. So I post this now only to say:
I HAVE ATTENDED KISCON
. AND IT HAS WRECKED ME (IN AN AMAZING WAY)!
I've never attended a fan Con before, and I had a whole ton of shyness attending this one. That quickly vanished, however, because there were amazing, thoughtful, creative and insanely welcoming people attending right alongside me. I'm so glad to be part of fandom (even if I've been a serious lurker since I crawled back into my shell 2 years ago), and for the first time in my life I was able to share that in person with others who enjoyed it as much as I do. I hardly know what to say, except that it was an incredible experience I would encourage anyone I know to have.
Go forth, fandom, and continue to amaze! I hope to become a renewed member of it! Once more into the breach, old friends... :-)
