Re: Panels. I hope those kids have fun at panels if they're about That Fandom! Because after what happened, a lot of people don't even want to participate anymore.

Look, it sucks that Bad Things Happen In Fandom Sometimes. And it sucks that Some Really Cool People aren’t participating anymore because of it. That’s their decision and I respect it.

But let me tell you a thing: I still want to participate. My friends still want to participate. Now I can’t speak for everyone, but I guarantee you I am going to do my damndest to show everyone else who still wants to participate a good time.

  • I’m gonna moderate panels and give every one of my fellow panelists a chance to shine, to be clever and insightful for an engaged audience.

  • I’m gonna write down all the filthy hilarious things that @greencarnations​ and @aprillikesthings​ say and post them here on my blog.

  • I’m gonna bring all my Cards Against Humanity cards. And those of you who know me, know that I have A LOT of cards, including dedicated fandom sets for half-a-dozen different fandoms.

  • I’m gonna talk about omegaverse tentacles in the bar.

  • On Sunday night I’m gonna be in the frickin’ hot tub chanting NERD SOUP NERD SOUP with all the other soup nerds.

  • And afterward, I’m gonna write yet another 221B Con Gothic post.

So if you’re going to 221B, get ready to party with Berlynn, bitches!
