I spent a week or two meebling that maybe I'd get to go to Dragon Con, omg how, I don't know--having no certainties to declare. And then, yesterday, a ton of things fell into place very, very quickly. In fact, I can't even go into most of the details just yet, BUT:

As far as I know, and the precise details may be subject to change, I will be doing an academic Hannibal panel with @wolven that Sunday night (August 31st). I don't know if I can announce the name of it, but suffice it to say that I think this Fellini quote is apropos:

Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second and you can hop from one place to another. It’s a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.




There will be a Hannibal-themed fan panel early Saturday afternoon (August 30th), and I am among the panelists. Even better, Freddie is going to call in, since that worked surprisingly well at the Nerd HQ panel. I will definitely have 300 Tattle Crime buttons to give away--we'll reveal that design later, I think, but I can definitely say that I picked out the tagline, and it's in my shade of purple. (And I will have a Tattle Crime "press pass," about which I am way too excited. "I WANT A LANYARD!") (Tattle Crime will also have representatives and different button exclusives at SDCC, by the way. We make our own fun.) (I should put that on my business cards.) I'll have Freddie's business cards and I'm working on a design for my own (speaking of which), now that I finally have somewhere to take them.

I can't even talk about the other stuff we'll have there. Put it this way: if you are a fan of Hannibal, and you are at Dragon Con, this panel is where you want to be.

(I hope you will also want to be at the academic panel--if you've heard me on podcasts before, it will probably sound a good bit like that.)

Anyway, now that the major announcements are out of the way--"I can come for one day, I'll go with my sister, it's only a two-hour drive from Birmingham to Atlanta, it'll be a day trip" has ended up being "I will take the train" (yay, trains!) "and get there Thursday evening and then leave early Tuesday morning." So I will be in Atlanta for four days and five nights, which is #leavingthehouseomg with a vengeance. I honestly have no idea what I'll do with myself on Friday or Monday; I am totally okay with chilling in my room with a book, because it'll be nice just to be away from home a little bit. I'm keeping a lookout for people I might want to go hunt down (I'd like to go see the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab folks, for example), but I am really trying to keep My First Convention down to a manageable experience, you know? So I'm more about picking a spot to be, hanging out, meeting people, and doing the panels, rather than hiking around back and forth or standing in line for hours. Honestly, I have no fear of public speaking. I did when I was younger, but somehow reading college academic papers in two different languages cured me of that; between that and six years (!) of podcast appearances, speaking on the panels is literally the actual last thing I am worried about. I was far more anxious about how I would get there (YAY TRAINS!) and where I would stay (with foresthouse!) and how the hell I would afford it (trains and roommates, WHEE), but that all suddenly got settled in about an hour's conversation. I am also anxious about this basically being my first ~public appearance,~ in that I'll be coming out of my faceless Snicket-like seclusion and now everyone will have a face to put to the pen name. I beg you to hide your disappointment that I am a mere and particularly heavy mortal and not 1) a Yahoo cartoon, 2) Galadriel, or 3) a Pallas cat. I am, however, well-marbled, which has got to count for something in Fancy Cannibal fandom. Which reminds me, I need to find myself a flower crown.
