I got home late on Monday afternoon and have been catching up on email, being organizational for Harry's bar mitzvah (omg! six weeks!), looking at everything from Comic Con including the awesome Harry Potter panel that I semi-organized, and Andrew Sims of Mugglecast hosted, and really not suffering much post-con drop because I've been chatting with so many people every minute since, on Tumblr, LJ, FB, Twitter, googlechat and sometimes phone.

I'm working on a playlist of all the awesome videos that people shot, and listening to the two postcasts I participated on: Edition, which was a little silly and recorded in the hotel lobby on Sunday afternoon, and the much more serious Mugglenet Academia on fanfic & transformative works. Download and listen - they were both awesome experiences.

My photos are up over on facebook, and the entire Ascendio flickr pool is at divided into sections here. If you couldn't be there, we'll also have audio recordings online here (and we now have a package of all events which might be of interest to academics, universities, organizations, etc.). Individual sessions will be online shortly.

Now, speaking personally....

This was an awesome event. The entire Senior Staff - Flourish, Gwen, Amy, Femme, Alexa, Mary, Ailene, Dave, Bekki, Mallory, Anastasia, Noe, Zorb - and our awesome team members, including Chris Rankin and Lena Gabrielle and Vicki my saviour, as well as our awesome presenters & guests, plus the IQA and HPA - were brain-blowingly fantastic and seriously, there was nothing that went wrong that couldn't be fixed within about three minutes.

Even the rain the night of NoaTW disappeared quickly!


I don't know what's going to happen next. We all went into this at least a little burned out - but at the moment, I don't know if it's the euphoria from the event itself or what, but...

So there's going to be talk about things beyond 2013 and if you're interested in talking, then let's talk. :D Personally, I won't work with Universal for a long time, if ever, for many reasons, but...

Ellipse.... Ellipse.... Ellipse...

I am ridiculously sad that I can't get to Lubricus, but there is no way I can go out of state between now and The Bar Mitzvah, but I am looking at MistiCon in New Hampshire in May, because I have to be in Philadelphia that Friday afternoon, so I may be able to manage a Thursday night/Friday morning a little further north. And Wincon is still on my agenda, but it entirely depends on Aaron's work schedule, so I won't know until late September. Also, the Vegas SPN con in March!

After Nimbus we didn't know when we'd all see each other again. These days, we know that even if it's not every year, it'll be every so often and sometimes more frequent than that. Fandom is here, fandom is changing and fandom is awesome.

If I didn't see you this weekend, you were missed (and I miss you still). If I did see you and glomp you and drink with you and possibly sing kareoke with you, then I miss you right now.

And I will see you soon.

...holy crap, already? It does not seem like he should be that old!

Yeah. :)

He's an inch shorter than me, and his shoe size is considerably larger. Awesome, awesome child.

I've said this a lot on my journal and other journals, but I'll say it again: this was my favorite con, and ranking closely with Azkatraz. It was just *perfect.* I am so thankful to everyone who worked on this con for making it happen. It's bittersweet that this is the "last" one, and I definitely look forward to any other cons HPEF may organize in the future. I personally was holding out to a con in LA when the wizarding world of Harry Potter opens at Universal Studios Hollywood. But. I understand that things behind the scenes are a lot more difficult than what they appear to us.

I'm so sorry I couldn't make it. Nothing is going right around here at the moment and there was just no way to do it, especially with all the stuff coming up soon with the kid.

I am glad everyone enjoyed it and I'm sad that there isn't another one to dream about in the future!

Eeee can't wait to listen to recordings from the con!

The Harry Potter panel at Comic-Con was indeed awesome. Andrew was an excellent moderator. Thank you for letting me be a part of it.

Seriously, neither can I. I'm going through the final look at the menu today, too. It's brain-boggling.

"Fandom is my fandom" indeed. :-)

I was so bummed when I realized that Lubricus is the same week as my August faculty in-service meetings. (Now THAT would be an interesting thing to write on the request for personal days.) And MistiCon happens at what I expect will be a crunch time in my new position at school. But I will keep on trying to make scheduling magic happen.

*hugs and twirls you*
