Can...barely...contain...excitement...  
Okay, not only is it Friday and there's an Edlund/SPN episode on the horizon, but I worked up the nerve to tell my hubs I wanted to go to a Supernatural convention. Much to my total, jaw-dropping shock, he didn't shoot down the notion straight away. So of course that means I'M GOING! There is no other response. He had the grave misfortune of giving me a tentative okay, and that's the end of it.

I. AM. GOING.

(My husband is NOT a controlling chauvinist, trust me. But being a cynic, verging on pessimist, he's always stressed about finances and yeah, just a little bit overprotective when I'm out of his sights. He really is a good guy, overall. I swear.)

SO! Chicago, here I come. Which brings me to this: who else is planning to go to ChiCon? When the date draws closer (end of October,) I'll be looking for a roomie.

In the meantime, I'll be opening up for art commissions, also known as "Let's Get Quickreaver A Gold Pass!" (If I've already promised you SPN fanart, I won't charge for that. Unless, of course, you want to tip me, via Paypal. Won't turn it away!) Later today or tomorrow, I'll cook up a price list. Thoughts? Requests? Other brilliant money-making ideas?

I'm really REALLY stupidly stoked. I hope I get to meet a lot of you fellow crazies this fall. The SPN fandom is kinda wacky but also, oh so much the awesome. Pardon me while I sit in the corner and squee, k?

I know, right? I'm a grown woman, squeeing over a TV show. What is this world coming to?! On the other hand, I'm so very easy to please. ;)

*gasps* I was already very tempted to go to the Chicago Con...but now YOU are going! *sings* Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? XD
If my finances will cover it (and if I'm still alive XD), I'm totally going to that one :D

Also, what is your paypal? ....just curious~

EDIT: Pffttt, I want to slap myself sometimes! I'm so excited and happy for youuuu!! *smishes*

Oh, no you don't! You will not get my Paypal, lady! *GRIN* You've already been too generous over at dA with those amazing contests! But it would be really awesome to meet you in Chicago. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. :D

AWESOME!!!! I wish I was going this year now so I could meet you...sadly I did my US Chicago trip in 2010 and am unlikely to venture so far afield again any time soon. You will have a wonderful time, come what may - meeting fellow fans is almost as exciting and definitely as rewarding as meeting the stars. I'm squeeing for you now!!
My hubby's distant cousin just bought herself a Chicago ticket after getting hooked on SPN a few months ago - so she's not only blizted all the seasons on DVD she's got hooked on the whole fandom idea. When we fall, we fall hard, eh?

I am highly amused that we ran into each other at Asylum 7 and I was also at Chicon 2010.

Are you stalking me? ;)

EEEE! Your first convention! How exciting! Chicon 2010 was my first US SPN con and I had a blast! You will love it!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 17th, 2012 09:47 pm (UTC)
EEEE! I know, right?

I'd love to meet my on-line buds from across the Pond but I know that's a far piece to go for a convention. Maybe some day I'll make it o'er thar!

YAY for you... I won't be here anymore for Chicon (I would have loved that) but hey, I'm going to LA so...
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 17th, 2012 09:48 pm (UTC)
Sweeeeet, for L.A.! I have a bro in San Fran, but it's just cheaper for me to drive. And L.A. isn't all that close to San Fran.

I have been almost sorta tempted to go to the one in Chicago as well. Still thinking though. What exactly goes on at one of those things? Is it just a bunch of talking heads? Are there activities and merchandise sales and stuff? I just want to go to say I've done one, but not if it's nothing but relentless panels.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 17th, 2012 10:23 pm (UTC)
Lotsa stuff goes on, per reports! Let's do lunch sometime soon; we can talk about it. It would sorta rock to carpool. I'd totally be up for it!

Awe to the some! Closer to Ground Zero, we should start collecting names and make plans to meet up for cheeseburgers and beer. :D Or salads, if you're so inclined...
