I’m more of a doctor who/coldplay fandom person but my friend Brittney is SPN fandom and I’m 90% sure she’s coming :) just come along either way and hang out with cool people!

and american person, your ask box is closed so I don’t know how to get back to you but there are more meetups in the States than in Australia. You could check tumblr.com/meetups

flandle2 years ago - RSVP'd
Hi! (Im coming)
Apart from the SPN, Doctor Who & Coldplay Fandoms, are there going to be any other fandom people there ? :o (eg Homestuck, Avatar)
rixonrixonrixon2 years ago - RSVP'd
omg yes it says butt st yesss
iam-sherlokid2 years ago - RSVP'd
so where in hyde park are we meeting exactly cause ive never been there but it looks like a big place
cuntyrunt2 years ago - RSVP'd
age range ?
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer

BUTT STREET OMG

@flandle I’m not too sure on that but my friend Brittney likes a lot of cool things (huge fan of avengers) and she’s so cool and I’m sure other cool people will show up so if people aren’t into your fandoms, at least, just come to hang out with cool internet people :)

@cuntyrunt any age range as long as you’ll get along with us and we range from 15 - 20. Like, it doesn’t matter if you’re 30 or so, as long as you don’t talk about topics that most of us can’t relate (marriage, hitting the bar etc), you’re welcome! I mean, you can but it’s just that people won’t quite understand and it’ll all be awks.

and yes um if everyone has facebook, how about I make an event there and discuss about all the things on the page. I’m not a huge fan of facebook but because on tumblr, you have to come here and check this page quite frequently whereas on fb, at least, you’ll get a notification

cuntyrunt2 years ago - RSVP'd
uhm im actually thirteen.. but is it themed ? and if you dont want me to go for the age i dont mind
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer

@cuntyrunt to be honest, I didn’t think much of a theme when I created the meetup. I just wanted to meet some of my friends I’ve met on here. But judging on the people’s blogs that RSVP'ed, it does looks like we’re gonna talk mostly about doctor who and sherlock and supernatural.

and about the age, I’m almost 20 and I’ve seen 13 year olds who are more mature and independent than me. Basically, people shouldn’t look down on you because of your age. But I’m not too sure if you’re a fan of doctor who/sherlock/supernatural. 99% of us will be.

Bottom line is, if you think you won’t get bored by our TV show obsessions, you’re more than welcome no matter how young you are (unless you’re 12.9).

rixonrixonrixon2 years ago - RSVP'd
topics we can talk about: the pronunciation of ‘gif’ ;)
positiveethan2 years ago - RSVP'd
I should be able to make it ^_^
Do any of you people attending have an interest in heavy music? I think I have enough knowledge of fandom stuff not to get socially awkward but if I’m wrong I’ll need to cling to you so we can feed off each other’s obsessions :D
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer

@ethan4l I’m more of a coldplay person lol come along as long as you won’t feel awkward ahaha

@stahpp uhhhh that is an interesting question. I’m not bringing any critters though.

brightlord-kaladin2 years ago - RSVP'd
I really want to come, but I’ve never been to a meetup before so I’m a bit nervous. Does everyone else know each other, or will we all be complete strangers? And are people cosplaying or no? And if it’s a picnic, does anyone have any allergies or have issues with brownies? Again, sorry about question dump but I really want to come but I’ve never been to one of these
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer
@daughterofgallifrey this is my first time organising a meetup as well. Don’t be nervous! I don’t really know anyone irl except Brittney and a bit of Pat. I don’t think people are too keen on cosplaying. It’ll just basically be a casually hang out (not a formal thing whatsoever) so don’t worry too much. If you want to bring brownies, just bring brownies :) person with allergies just won’t eat it.
coram-luna2 years ago - RSVP'd
Hey everyone :) my friend and I have decided we are going to come , YAY for meetup first timers.
lokh2 years ago - RSVP'd
:D Also is there something that will make the group immediately recognisable?
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer
@lokh bow ties (which is actually a doctor who thing but that will do) Check the announcement post :)
coram-luna2 years ago - RSVP'd
I am a cook so I will make lots of yummy stuff, any requests?
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer
^ omg! Thank you so much for the offer! Just make something nice and yummy, I eat almost anything :3
crystallised-trap2 years ago - RSVP'd
Is there a place for a 16 year old like myself there?
crystallised-trap2 years ago - RSVP'd
I don’t have a bow tie :(
coram-luna2 years ago - RSVP'd
I will make Raspberry friands, custard tarts and maybe something else, any ideas?
crystallised-trap2 years ago - RSVP'd
I don’t think I’ll attend I have nothing to bring and feel to young for it
crystallised-trap2 years ago - RSVP'd
Plus I’m not fandom at all, unless anyone else who is going is fandom?
coram-luna2 years ago - RSVP'd
@trapped-in-the=cosmos I am 16 as well and there is a 13 year old as well or at least I think there is.
brightlord-kaladin2 years ago - RSVP'd
I’m 16 as well! Wow, there are a lot of 16 year olds. And just bring, like, a pack of timtams or something. Also, anyone else coming by train from the north shore?
crystallised-trap2 years ago - RSVP'd
I’m not fandom though?
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer
@trapped-in-the-cosmos it’s all up to you :) don’t feel obliged to come or wear a bow tie. I only did it just so I can identify people.
crystallised-trap2 years ago - RSVP'd
Yeah I have to think about it :P
brightlord-kaladin2 years ago - RSVP'd
Well, my cousin’s up from Melbourne, so she’ll probably be coming, and she’s non-fandom, too
crystallised-trap2 years ago - RSVP'd
That’s good which URL is she?
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer
yeah :) doesn’t matter if you’re a fandom person, I just want to meet some new cool people and eat food :P
crystallised-trap2 years ago - RSVP'd
Hehe sounds reasonable
brightlord-kaladin2 years ago - RSVP'd
Her URL is deepfriedjesus
And where are we meeting up?
mister-b0ggins-abandoned2 years ago - RSVP'd
I have a thing on but if it finishes with enough time for me to get to there by 3pm, I’ll be there for sure c:
mister-b0ggins-abandoned2 years ago - RSVP'd
Well me and scarlettharl0t will both be there in that case c:
gwainedidnotfail2 years ago
I didn’t know this was a thing!
I might come, if my parents are ok with me meeting internet strangers :P I’ll probably bring some friends too :D
rixonrixonrixon2 years ago - RSVP'd
so with bringing stuff for the picnic are we bringing stuff for ourselves? or bringing stuff willy nilly? or is there some sort of list that we say “yep i can bring that” and then it gets checked off? or….
flandle2 years ago - RSVP'd
Hyde Park is p big is there going to be a picnic area set up for everyone? (are u going to make a sign or something )
brightlord-kaladin2 years ago - RSVP'd
So, are we meeting at the fountain or somewhere else? Because the fountain’s probably the easiest to get to
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer

I’ll send out an email quite soon about everything.

@gwainedidnotfail If you’re bringing some friends, could you make sure they RSVP please?

@flandle and no it’s only a casual meetup, and I’m really busy these days and I don’t actually live near sydney at all so yeah :P I’ll probs be there early but don’t expect anything fancy lol

coldponds2 years ago - Organizer
You guise, if you RSVP'ed, you should’ve received an email from me by now. Sorry, it’s a bit late >.< I hope people check emails lol Let me know if you didn’t or RSVP late.
lokh2 years ago - RSVP'd
I know this seems like a supremely bad idea, considering that our numbers have grown to almost 40, but worst case scenario it starts raining really bad, we could cram into the Starbucks next to Hyde Park…?
vsphy2 years ago - RSVP'd
i’d go but i’d be too awkward to initiate conversation XD
coldponds2 years ago - Organizer
In case people don’t check their emails (if you don’t, you really should ok) we’re meeting near the fountain tomorrow. If it’s raining and all miserable, come to the Starbucks near Hyde Park. Bring some money to buy food if we need to do that :P I don’t think they’ll want 40 people just casually standing up in their shop.
rixonrixonrixon2 years ago - RSVP'd
i apologise in advance if i sleep in and miss it
werethe-newromantics2 years ago - RSVP'd
Heey! I get to go today!! Soo meet up at fountain?? I’ll be there around maybe 20 to 4 is that cool? :)
