{ truth and bone }  
§ Collecto-London: So, I know we're all still in recovery mode from The Hub3, but I was wondering if anybody had started making plans about Collecto-London yet? Ideally I'd like to know which days people are planning to stay in London. I know the Saturday evening is a given, but is anyone planning to stay another night either before/after this one? I'm looking to start arrainging my travel up and it'll be easier if I get it done sooner rather than later! ...Also, linking in with the "how long", I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on the "places to stay" front?

§ The Hub4: I should hopefully be finding out whether or not I can get the dates for The Hub4 off when I pop into work tomorrow. I have this horrid feeling my boss won't give me an answer tomorrow though but will spin me her infamous "leave it with me" line which translates to her saying she'll look into it but never actually doing so and me having to pester her about it weeks/months down the line until she finally caves and gives it to me anyway. Ideally I could be doing without that kind of hassle, because I'd love to book tickets for it asap, so keep all your fingers crossed for me guys! 

§ On Writing: I have less than two weeks to finish my tw_bigbang peice and I've yet to touch it since getting the thumbs up for it. Eeep. Actually, make that less than a week since I'll be starting Caspe-Wri-Mo come Sunday and probably won't have much time to do more than one thing an evening once November starts. Double eeep. ...it's a good thing I've stocked up on Irn Bru, that's all I'm saying!

For the record, which of you lovely flisters are doing Caspe/Novo-Wri-Mo with me this year? :)
In other news, put in my "resignation" for torchwood_three the other day. I'm kind of saddened to be giving up my regular slot after having been doing it for so long (since it first started way back in November 2006, in fact! Gosh. I didn't realise it'd been that long!), but I've gotten to a point where the fandom side of Torchwood does nothing for me anymore and having to code most of the content going into the newsletter recently has become more of a tedious chore than anything, and I don't want to begin resenting my involvement with it, so I figured it was better to "get out" whilst I was still in a relatively good place with it. I've asked to stay on as a backup though, I don't think I'm quite at the point where I can or want to cut all ties completely! X)

No plans made yet for Collecto London. Can definitely stay Friday and Saturday night. May be able to stay Sunday night too but would have to leave about 10ish on Monday since I have class at 11.15 (or call in sick... depending on how well college is going at that point in time). If everyone is staying Sunday night though I can do that provided I remember to bring books with me so I don't have to go home for them!

Have not booked for the Hub 4 yet either. But yay it's in my easter break. Just waiting for Dawn so we can book together. :D

Aww I saw your resignation. I don't blame you. I'm still enjoying it, I love the whole craziness and spotting the posts that are going to cause wank and the occasional bit of good fic I come across, but I'm not surprised after all this time you're sick of it.
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Castiel; heartscs_whitewolf on October 29th, 2009 11:19 pm (UTC)
Awesome! It'd be so much easier for me if I came up on the Friday and left the Monday, so my real question was who was going to be doing that and could we room share XD hehe. you up for room sharing? just lemme know if you're def up for staying till the Monday :)

lucky thing! Technically my rota was changed so that if I ever wanted a weekend off I would be able to get it as someone would always be working to cover Saturday's with me. That plan has kind of gone tits up so I'm in a really unsure place right now :S ugh.

yeah. man. I've been thinking about it for a while now and it really was getting to a point where I was resenting it more than anything. I'm not leaving the newsletter entirely, but I definitely need a break from the fandom side of everything. At least you can still take pleasure out of the crazy ;D hehe

I'm that girl you can't shut up: TWicontimecake on October 29th, 2009 08:08 pm (UTC)
Well I'm staying in the EasyHotel Earls Court, it's cheapish and good if you don't mind orange walls!

And I'll be in London from Friday - Monday :D

I'm in a quandry about my Hub 4 ticket too D:
I really really want to go Gold but I'm afraid they'll sell out before I gather the funds!
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Sam&Dean; birdscs_whitewolf on October 29th, 2009 11:24 pm (UTC)
ta for the link! It's definitely going onto my list of potential places to stay- it is very orange though, isn't it? XD

Whoop! That is awesome news. It'll be so much easier for me to do the same and save panicing about travelling on the days :)

ugh, you and me both. I'm trying (and failing) not to spend money right now, but if my boss gives me the go ahead It'll just have to go on my card like everything else XD haha

I'm considering staying over in London Friday and Saturday night, actually, even though I'm fairly close as it is. It'll just be easier than trying to catch the first train out in order to get there early. I'd have to find somewhere cheap to stay, though! Or a roommate, but frankly I'd settle for staying somewhere with other fangirls.

ps. I'm going to make the halol post when I get back from this weekend. OMG.
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Castiel; halocs_whitewolf on October 29th, 2009 11:29 pm (UTC)
I'm definitely hoping to stay the Fri/Sat and possibly now the Sun too since I see others planning to also. You're totally welcome to roomshare with me and whoever else if you're up for it? :)

eeee halols XD this is going to be epic! wings? XD XD XD

No idea on the room front yet as I still need to talk to Mr Skinny Breeches about it. We had a very short convo on MSN today that died a death :S ARGH MEN CONFUSE ME D:

I've got my room booked for Hub4! XD Still need a ticket. Silver again hopefully. *crosses fingers for you*


LOL I'm surprised _stolendreams_ hasn't resigned yet. I feel the exact same way about the TW fandom too

Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Ianto; stopwatch! XDcs_whitewolf on October 29th, 2009 11:31 pm (UTC)
lol this is why I do not bother with the menfolk XD

jammy bugger XD I don't want to go booking anything till I know for certain (what's this about having to pay upfront and not being able to cancel rooms?!)


apparently she likes the wank potential too much still XD hehe. I just need to take a break from the whole thing before I go nuclear on half of the fandom!

Pete and I are coming in early on Sat, staying at the Hilton next door overnight and leaving sunday after the event.

::crosses fingers::

and erm I'm still up for doing it, though that may be failtastic XD

also totally don't blame you. I barely look at the TW related posts on my flist, having to do the newsletter must drive you nuts.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Bilis Mangercs_whitewolf on October 29th, 2009 11:34 pm (UTC)
Awesome! ...I assume it's probably ridiculous money, but how much is the hilton charging for a night?

XD I'm not going to let you fail! ::cracks whip::

I've defriended pretty much every TW comm I was a member of. Just keeping the comms I mod and the main TW comm on the off chance I want to know what's going on. It's coding all the drivel that gets posted that's been doing my box in. I want my old fandom back :((

I wish I were coming with you to Collecto-London. Seems me and Misha are never meant to meet. Could be a good thing since my brain will probably shut down the second I see him lol.

Hub4 is getting more likely by the day for me. Especially since I apparently have a good chance of a proper job :D Give me something to do till I become famous

I'm going to give wri-mo a shot though I'll fail on an epic scale no doubt.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Jack&Ianto; Helluva time...cs_whitewolf on October 30th, 2009 12:13 am (UTC)
You'll get your chance with him one day! but until then, he is mine! muhahahahaha! :) heh, my brain seems to shut down just thinking about him XD but I'm working on that!

YAY! On both fronts. I hope you can do- and we'll be making sure you say hi to people this time :) fandom isn't nearly as scary as it seems to be!

:D you will do spectacularly! have faith, young wri-mo!

Good luck dude. I'm sure they won't sell out THAT fast.

I so wish I was going to London but so not happening even got tickets fr Rocky Horror so I wont be temptedXD

I really am thinking about just getting standard Hub ticket, it might suck a bit when comes to seats but I'm in no rush:)

Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Ianto; fucking Jonescs_whitewolf on October 30th, 2009 12:15 am (UTC)

I won't be making Rocky Horror, soz, I keep spending my money on everything else XD haha

I was thinking Standard but then was all like... I'd want to still be meeting the guests, so silver! ...and then Georgie was all, but if you go silver you may as well just go gold so... yeah, I'll be going gold again if I can go at all XD

CM:London - I'll be coming down after work on Friday, and staying until Sunday. Not sure where the crew hotel is yet, but I might be able to come say hi Friday night. *g* (Saturday night is normally the crew party, but I'm not sure yet.)

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you at the Hub4. I'll definitely be there!!

For my sins, I'm going to take another crack at Nanowrimo this year. Hopefully I'll do better than last year. *fingers crossed*

It'll be good to see you again if you're free the Friday :) I'll be at La Cage on the Sat night but I know there's no plans for the Friday yet.

:O ARE YOU CRAZY?! you're killing me with your productive abilities here, woman. All that work you've already got and you want to throw a Nano on top of it? ::swoons:: XD super good luck! haha

Collecto-London, I can't tell you my plans until after the 19th November, cause that when i go bk to see consultant and i'll be either bk in hospital or back home! Although if i did come, i can't afford the theatre so would probably travel down maybe fri afternoon and travel back saturday!!

All the best with the writing :D
