misti con?  
still not over the awesomeness that was leviosa2016. getting to hang out with so many of you was unbelievably amazing, and I am already missing all the open discussion about shipping and slashing and representation and the amazing characters we all love and adore.

basically, it's addicting, and I need more.

So, I was curious if any of y'all are going to Misti Con?

It looks like there are a lot of pros, but I won't lie, I'm a little unsure about the lack of fandom-y panels, and some of the language the con uses in references to "fan-fictions" makes me a little nervous about how shippy/fandomy things would go over.

I am considering but definitely on the fence...However, the more fandom friends are going.... :D

Basically I just want to hang out with you guys all of the time!

Have any of you been to Misti Con before? Any thoughts? I'd love to hear more about the con from people who've been!

I'm going and I would urge you to if you want to attend an immersive HP con. By that I mean, the con takes over the entire hotel which is done up in an HP theme and many of the local businesses welcome con goers by having HP themed specials. You will soak in HP all weekend.

It's very cosplay centric, but there's plenty of fic related things as well. I had a rough go of it last year but that was related to a lot of things not having to do with the con itself.

I would say give it a go. The more of us fic/art folks there are, the more of that type of stuff will be on hand.

An immersive con does sound like a cool experience for sure! :D

I don't see where there are panels listed - it looks like programming is still being planned and they're looking for submissions. You should put something together! I'm thinking about submitting something, too.

Yeah, I was looking at last year's schedule, so it definitely is possible that this year's will have more fandomy things.

That's cool that you're thinking about submitting a panel--are you going then??

I know! They do seem pretty cool, and from what I've heard, cosplay is big there, so the theater-y aspect doesn't surprise me at all! :)

I'm going! So that's another fan fic supporter! :D

Seeing you again is definitely in the pro column! :D

I think we may be in kind of the same boat! I'm intrigued and thinking about going, but I have some reservations about whether it would be the right place for me as someone who doesn't cosplay and who's more into fic and meta and critical analysis. It seems like it would be fun, but I'm still deciding whether I'm sure enough it would be fun for my bookish, introverted, indoorsy self to make the trip and pay for the things. Though having more fannish people there would definitely tilt the scales!

Also will depend on whether there's anything in England/Europe around 19 Years Later. I'm craving a trip over anyway, so that would appeal, but I haven't heard about anything yet.
wicked smut goddessgracerene on July 26th, 2016 06:52 pm (UTC)
Yes, exactly all of this!

And 1000% with you on England/Europe. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for anything going on over there, because I would definitely be down for a trip across the pond.

I'm not going to misticon (wrong continent) but I'll probably go to th 19 years later thing that's supposed to be in the uk (or was it Germany?) I tried googling it but can't find it :( but I'm so sure I read about it on my flist, only I can't remember who posted about it... v.v maybe I dreamed it. But anyway, yeah, if there's a thing in the uk/Germany next year, that's what I'll be aiming for...
wicked smut goddessgracerene on July 27th, 2016 06:32 pm (UTC)
I don't know that there is anything actually confirmed, I think it's more like people wondering if there will be something... :D

But if there is that would be great!

I have nothing helpful to add, but I do appreciate you posting about cons for those of us who are interested/inspired by your example!

I'd be curious about any 19-years-later stuff happening, too, like a couple people have mentioned here...though I suppose if it's not until this fall, and in Europe, I'll once again be on the wrong continent since I'll be back in the US!
wicked smut goddessgracerene on July 27th, 2016 06:37 pm (UTC)
I am all about the cons right now! :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on July 26th, 2016 08:52 pm (UTC)
Ohh, I'm so doing a con next year, this or something because do you know how hard it's been for a puppy like me to not being able to jump in and flail with you all? It's been very, very hard! LOL

But I'm also keeping my ears open for this 19 years later thing I'm reading about in the comments. Is it a secret? I hadn't heard of it before. :D
wicked smut goddessgracerene on July 27th, 2016 06:33 pm (UTC)
LOL, I don't know that there is actually anything happening for the 19 years later thing. I think mostly it's just people saying that potentially there could be stuff planned in London around that time but I don't think there is anything official.

We're definitely thinking about coming up for a day, but we're local to Misti. It just falls at a difficult point in the semester to take the whole weekend.

And we'd love to see everyone again!!! Maybe we can set up a reason (19 years after....) :)

Ooo, hanging out with you guys again is a definite pro for going!
