First of all, Chicago traffic is THE WORST traffic I have ever been in, and this includes LA traffic. It took me nearly 3 hours to get 30 miles. Of course it was 5 pm on a Friday afternoon but still. Ridiculous. And then when I left (at 5 am on a Monday!) it was still pretty bad for as early as it was. Sigh. This is why I could never be a big city girl.

So, ChiCon was cool. As usual. I arrived late Friday afternoon, so I didn't see anyone speak on Friday at all. Met up with [livejournal.com profile] build_the_moon for the first time, which was fun, though we didn't actually spend too much time together, too busy doing ALL THE THINGS, but it's always cool to meet online folks in real life. Spent most of my time Kelly and Kate, though, which is what I planned. I think it was probably my last Chicon, though. Nothing will top last year, and Nashcon is cheaper and closer to me. So yeah. Last hurrah.

As you have seen here and there via awesomely stealthy people (like seriously, I roomed with volunteers, I know how strict they are about recording video. People are NINJAS) there was plenty of totally PG fun. LOLOLOL. I think the only panel that was legit PG was Jared and Jensen's. But yeah. Sebastian and Mark are the bestest. As long as you're not an 11 year old child.

I had a wonderful seat in the second row of Silver, on the aisle, even. I see now why people pay so much money for reserved seats. I unfortunately do not have a good camera, but eh, I prefer to watch than take pics anyway. I did get a few when everyone wondered up and down the aisle, though.

this post is huuuuuge )

Since As I'm looking around on the SuperWiki, there aren't very many videos linked, and I know [livejournal.com profile] agt_spooky didn't record her usual awesome vids because her seat was a couple rows behind mine (I kept looking over wondering if she was recording and hoping she was!), I will try and give a brief panel summary of what I remember of J2 since, let's face it, they will always be the main event.

jay squared dude )

photo ops and autographs )

So that's that. I did have lots of fun, as one does at a convention, but like I said, I think nothing will ever top surprise!Jensen and J2M panel from last year, so I'm probably done with ChiCon. This was my fifth convention and at some point I've got to say 'okay enough,' you know? So yeah. Two conventions a year is far too much, Nashcon is much closer and much cheaper, and at some point I'd like to make it to Vancouver. Though the idea of flying there terrifies me, let alone the idea of being able to afford it.

Alas, until Nashcon.

The way Jared and Jensen talked about the show, the passion they have for their characters and for the craft of acting. The way they seemed to genuinely like us who support the show, I don't know it just made something click ... It's not about who is engaged to who, it's not about the show turning out exactly as we each individually have dreamt, it's not about the gossip, the rumors, its not about any of that. It's about loving a show that we all watch and watching a show that we all love. It's about these two boys who, god dammit, put everything into each and every scene, working hard with a collective group of talented people to produce something we all adore.
from [livejournal.com profile] shannon_doll here


I saw this and just had to share because it's such a perfect description of what fandom SHOULD be and what it WAS during the convention, not what it has become lately.

In other news, I feel like I'm never gonna catch up on everything I've missed. Including sleep. I haven't seen Glee or V or Castle, and I barely managed to squeeze in Supernatural (which I didn't really like...).

The good news is that remission is the word of the day as far as Brett's concerned, and I actually have the chance to go job-hunting now. Whee.

So anyway. TELL ME WHAT I'VE MISSED POINT ME TO THE BEST PICTURES OF THE CONVENTION SO I CAN SEE IT ALL AGAIN. I've been posting the ones I really love to my tumblr, but like a dumbass haven't actually been saving them to my hardrive. OH WELL. Also I'm never getting caught up on comments, it's inevitable as there's like 70 in my inbox and growing, so it's not that I don't love you enough to respond, it's just that I love having feeling in my wrists more. :)

So yeah, Sunday the big day. Gotta admit, I was pretty exhausted by this point, so I definitely missed some of the little nuances that made it so perfect.

Firstly, let me just thank [livejournal.com profile] dawnintheforest for the bajillionth time for allowing me to stay with her and putting up with me. I'm so glad to have met you, luv.

I'm always torn whether to use real names or user names when making things like this, but I'll stick with the usernames, I suppose.

Apologizing ahead of time because I do not have a decent camera anymore as mine is rather aged, so a lot of my pics are through my phone, which, while not a bad quality camera phone, can only do so much. So I don't have many pictures and the ones I do are only so-so.
