§ re Asylum3: ASDFGHJ MY TICKET ARRIVED TODAY!!! I flailed so hard omg, I cannot tell you how excited I am for May to come right now! XD Apparently I'm ticket #1188 ...which is kind of "O_o" because, dude, how many people are actually coming to this thing?!

I still need to buy photo tickets for Jared and the J2 squeeze ::swoon:: and an autograph ticket for Jared for myself. But I know some of you (absinthefairy88  and galaxy_song ?) wanted me to get you an autograph from some of the guests... let me know if this is right or not. I can buy up to two extra autograph tickets per guest at £20 each. So lemme know if/who you want. If anyone else wants auto's let me know and I'll try my best. All these things go back on sale on the 16th of April and I'm pretty sure everyone and their grandmothers are going to be online trying to snap up tickets so I'm making no promises other than to try. Also I'd need the money paypal'd/sent to me by the 16th as I'm strapped for cash and doing some serious saving for the actual event.

Is anyone else on my flist coming to this event (aside from absdax, ir0nically_no, and brummy_gal;D) and fancy meeting up at some point during the weekend? It'd be simply fabulous to meet up with some UK fans, esp as this'll be my first Supernatural convention! XD I'd especially love to meet some Dean/Castiel fans!

Also, am I right in thinking we have to bring our own things to get signed? What's everyone taking with them? :S

::incontrollable flailing::

§ re tardis_bigbang: I have made like zero progress thus far and no amount of headdesking or peptalking is putting me in the mood to write. Anything. My muse has kidnapped my mojo and run off into the sunset, I cannot find the will to chase after them and beat them back into submission. Woe.

I currently have around 1000words of plottage written towards my Torchwood Camping AU. I think it could be a pretty good fic if I'd only manage to pull my finger out and start writing the damn thing. That and actually make up my mind about just where the whole thing is supposed to be headed. There's only so far "I want the team stranded in the woods" and "weird shit starts happening" can take you before you start scratching your head and trying to figure out an honest to god plot.

That said, I do have around 2000words written/potted out towards my Jack Harkness/Ross Jenkins piece. I know most of you felt I couldn't drag this one out over 20,000words but I finished writing the "plot" the other night and I think if all else fails it could actually work. But only if I fail with the Camping AU. I really want that one to work, damnit.

Still, we won't panic just yet. I still have around three weeks to get at least 15,000words of my fic written. Easy done. just as soon as I catch that damn muse, of course

§ In other news: Monday's are beyond boring. Watched Kings. And caught up on House. Did washing. Tried and failed to write. Refused to clean room. Read some Dean/Castiel but feel unfulfilled. Almost read Torchwood fic before laughing and wondering wtf I was thinking even entertaining the notion. Trawled through far too many entries on the friendsfriends flist. Procrastinated on everything and anything in order to avoid NVQ3 work. I AM SO FRIGGEN BORED OMG. How's everyone else doing? <33

Jensen, Jared, Misha. :D

I'll be able to get the money to you after Thursday. Just let me know which way is easier for you to work with in case I need to set up a Paypal account thing
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Castiel; heartscs_whitewolf on April 6th, 2009 05:05 pm (UTC)
If you don't have paypal already a check in the post'll be fine :)

Jensen and Jared's auto's are both £20 each, but I think Misha's is only £10, so it'll be £50 total. That cool?

Also, do you want them personalised?

I had a strange urge to read TW fic after The Hub. Got as far as discovering that apparently we're now calling Gwen/Rhys 'Gwys' and Ianto/Owen is 'Owanto', then realised how many Mary Sues seem to have suddenly popped up in TW fic (usually as the troubled teenager that Jack and Ianto adopt for no apparent reason at all) and decided that this was clearly a bad idea.
I'm sure there used to be more good writers when the fandom first started

Have loads of fun at Asylum. Sadly I has no money at all so I can't ask you to get autographs for me but I want a long report when you get back, k?
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Ianto&Weevil; stare you dowcs_whitewolf on April 6th, 2009 06:46 pm (UTC)
...we are? O_O... why the hell are we calling them that?!

The Mary-Sues, they scare me. As well as the m-pregs and the "happily ever afters" and the "twu luvs" etc. Just reading the titles (never mind the summaries) these days is enough to put you off TW fic for life. Which sucks, because I'm fairly sure I also remember good writers once upon a time!

Oh I will! :D heh and there will be mucho word-spam when I return (and possibly during the actual event! heh)

zeitheist on April 6th, 2009 06:36 pm (UTC)
I didn't know you were going to Asylum! I'm going to be there, obviously. Ticket #173. We should meet up! I've decided not to get my autographs done on the Friday, because it's going to be hectic as it is, so I'll probably be hanging around between autographs/photoshoots during the weekend.

As for what to get signed: which ticket type are you? The thing they sent you in the mail should tell you if your package includes 8x10s in the thing they sent you in the mail. I'm a diamond pass, so I do, but I don't know about other tickets: last year, they didn't give out any at all, so I ended up spending almost the same amount on prints as I did on the ticket! The problem is: unlike the Hub, Asylum last year didn't have a proper stall with prints. I have no idea if they've added one this year or not. If you don't get free 8x10s, you could do what a bunch of us did when we saw the Merlin boys at the MCM Expo last October and print up a bunch of stuff really cheaply using Tesco Photo.

As for what I'm taking with me: I'm probably going to hit up the dealers' stall at Collectormania Midlands or the MCM Expo before May, because I know exactly which one of the promo images I want to get Jensen and Jared to sign. I really wanted to get the boys to sign my DVD, because I thought I had two free autographs from them both, but then I realized Jared wasn't included in my package: so I'd essentially have to pay an extra £35 to get two autographs from him. Hmm.
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Castiel; SEX HAIRcs_whitewolf on April 6th, 2009 06:53 pm (UTC)
Squee! We should def meet up :D ...you up for swapping mob numbers? I can PM you mine if you're up for it. Do you know when you're arriving? I haven't decided about the Friday yet... do you know if it works much the same as The Hub did? Like you won't have to miss talks in order to get signings/photos, will you?

I'm an emerald package so I assume that means I get nothing as it was the last package available when I booked. Will def look into printing pics off for the event then, esp if we're not sure about them having a dealers room like they have at The Hub. I have no idea what I'll get signed though, so I'll need to start thinking about that soon, lol.

If I decide to go to the next one ("if" of course meaning "when") I'm def getting one of the upgraded packages because emerald is so not worth the money, esp considering how much I'm spending on photos and "extra" auto's. O_O... still it's going to be worth it, I'm so excited for this con! XD

You're a brave woman going to s Supernatural con. I don't think I'd be able to cope with teh crazy.

Read a fic the other day which started out awesome and then when the way of the majority of TW fics at the moment, I was so dissapointed. Although it did inspire me to get cracking on my fic, so at least something came out of it XD
Campaspe: RPS \\ GDL&JB; OMGYAYcs_whitewolf on April 6th, 2009 06:56 pm (UTC)
omg you're telling me! XD but I'm hoping us Brits can maintain out status of being the "saner" fans and nothing too weird or scary will come out XD

Have you started watching the series yet??? ::waggles eyebrows::

I... just can't even be bothered with TWfic at the moment. Which is seriously hampering my creativeness for TBB O_O... ugh.

YAY! At least you're writing! I'm very excited. I've missed your fic! ::snugs::

Oh woman you have no idea how much I want to go:( but autograph would be grand but Money wise the now I think I can only get Misha's just now. If I'm not able to print a pic to get signed how much do you think it will be to buy a picture? and I will give you that as well, thanks very muchXD

Uh it's sad I have not read a TW fic in so so long I stick to SGA now, even with the seris finihed there are so many amazing fics floating about.

I was thinking of going to Doc who Exhibition next Monday but if I am of them it means 100000 kids as well:S

<3
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Dean; Castielcs_whitewolf on April 7th, 2009 07:18 pm (UTC)
::snugs:: Misha's is only £10 (I think) but the J2 ones are £20. Do you just want Misha's? Lemme know for defo, yeah? I can print the pics if you're able to send them to me?

Lol me either. I dunno what made me want to try but I really didn't get far, haha. I'm sticking with SPN XD

Oooo yay DW exhibition! XD ...but damn it'll be bank holiday madness! :O
