The bad news is that I was the only survivor. The good news is that means there were no witnesses. No, wait, that was the *other* weekend. Not Bronycon. The majority of this post was written late Saturday and/or early Sunday. The sun hasn’t *quite* come up yet.

Woo! One week until I leave for the con. Looking forward to it. Not only did last year’s con hold back my depression for like three months after, I’ll actually be socializing more this time. Mostly because I have a car. So, it’ll be like high school all over again. Except I wasn’t the one with the car back then. Be cool to actually hang out with people instead of just kinda lurk nearby people.
Let’s see… I’m gonna be bringing my extra copies of Fallout: Equestria 3rd printing, & The Life and Times of a Winning Pony hardbacks. Just in case anyone there wants a copy and has the cash to buy ’em! Gotta get the money for my own dealer’s room splurges somehow! Hm. Might bring all the rest of my ponybooks. Maybe get ’em signed if authors are there. Or just to show them off. Or just have them displayed in my hotel room to be smug about without showing them to anyone. I’ve got a whole week to decide!
Everyone but Aragon keep reading. Aragon, um, nothing is here. Shoo shoo.
Got name-mentioned in a post-bronycon post and called ‘laid-back’. Which is cool. Also so much better than quiet because of crippling social anxiety. At least the shirts functioned as intended to get people to approach me, since it’s the starting a conversation bit I have trouble with. Of course now I have three BMRL image shirts and I really only want the one. Maybe just put two in storage for when the first wears out. Or sell them. Hmm… Probably nobody I can convince they are worth 50 bucks. Or, more reasonable, 20 bucks plus shipping.
By tonight I should be home at my own computer, with my own bed there nearby being ignored as I avoid sleep.
Just some bits and pieces from the con that I’m putting here because I’d like to get more information about them and don’t want to forget.
Regarding the current state of on fan fiction, specifically on FimFiction. Heard 1000 views is pretty good these days when many thousands were the numbers for big success back in the day. Also, what kind if bump (if any) do people get when a story gets shown somewhere? EqD, Seattle’s Angels, Presentperfect reviews, etc. The ever present question of where do people get their recommendations about what to read? Front page, reviewers, word of mouth? Does anyone have blackmail material on Knightly so we can get this last question in front of everyone on FimFiction?
Whoops! I thought I had scheduled this to go up Monday morning. Oh well, spoilers: I got home. Left for the 7 hour drive home at about 9am. Got home about 9pm. Not a fun trip. More tomorrow after sleep.
