JENNIFER MORRISON AT OZ COMIC CON: Detailed recap including panels from both Saturday and Sunday plus details on the dinner I attended with Jen ♡
(Aka the story of how I became friends with Jennifer Morrison)
*First picture taken Saturday morning, second taken Sunday evening
Last weekend, 5th and 6th July 2014, I was fortunate enough to attend Oz Comic Con in Melbourne, Australia and meet Jennifer Morrison. I also was one of the lucky 10 people who attended the intimate dinner function with her on the Saturday night – which was virtually indescribable and an experience I will never forget.
I know a lot of people have been asking for details and the like so this post will contain a rundown of my entire weekend – from the first day of OZCC (including my photo experience and a detailed recap of the panel with as many direct quotes as I could transcribe), to the dinner on Saturday night with Jen and finally to the second and last day of OZCC (again including photo and autograph interactions with Jen and another detailed recap of her panel with again, as much direct quotes as I could transcribe). I know I previously tweeted a few quotes from Saturday’s panel related to Captain Swan, but for those of you who wanted more than the 160 characters and the context, I’ve elaborated in more detail here! (And of course there are plenty of other quotes that aren’t CS related, I covered pretty much all the questions Jen answered)
I’ve spent about a week writing this on and off and putting together all of my notes from the weekend, so a heads up that this is in fact very long so I’ll put most of it under the cut. Note that the quotes in bold are direct from Jennifer Morrison (as accurately as I could transcribe in a hurry) and please do not repost/steal any of my photos included in the post. Lastly, if you’re going to take quotes from here, please do remember to credit me (a link to this post is fine! or if it’s on twitter a mention to my twitter handle @xoalana6ox!) – I don’t mind sharing with all of you, but this did take me a long time to put together so I would really appreciate you taking a minute to add credit!
Now that all of that’s out of the way, let’s start with my very very early wake up on Saturday morning!
SATURDAY 5th JULY – Oz Comic Con: Day 1
Despite having gone to bed at just around 2am after finishing putting together the book for Jen, I got up promptly at 4:30am fighting off any fatigue and running purely off the adrenaline provided by the fact that I was going to meet Jennifer Morrison today.
I arrived with my friend, Emma, at 6:30am and joined the line that, despite the doors not opening for another two and a half hours, had already started to form. The two hours passed surprisingly fast as I met some of my friends on Twitter for the first time and was later joined by my friend Courts and her friend Emma.
Wristbands on and the queue slowly inching closer to the building, nerves started to build and group strategies to get to the token booth as quickly as possible were formed (Jen’s photo session was the first and so began at 9:30). Sure enough the doors opened and the chaos was unleashed. I’d never previously been to a Comic Con before so it was definitely an experience for the books as we ran across the building, dodging stalls and attempting not to lose anyone in the crowd. But it all worked out as we got the tokens we wanted and waited towards the front of the photo line, waiting for Jen to come out.
We caught a glimpse of her from the line before she disappeared behind the black curtain of the photo tent which was enough to put us all in fits of ‘what-on-earth-am-I-going-to-say’ and ‘how-am-I-even-going-to-speak.’
I definitely had my moment of being star-struck the second I was within close proximity of Jen. She, of course, looked absolutely beautiful, wearing a white dress designed by Lublu Kira Plastinina. In all honestly, most of the memory of that first interaction is completely blurred – although it likely consisted of me mumbling unintelligible things. I do, however, remember telling her that I would see her at the dinner tonight to which she replied with an enthusiastic smile saying that she was “looking forward to seeing and talking to me more tonight.”
After having some time to process that I had in fact just met Jennifer Morrison and that she’d had her arm around me for the full minute of taking that photo, we headed over just over an hour before her panel to start lining up so we could get could seats.
Despite the occasional rain we had to endure, the wait was definitely worth it because not only did we end up with second row seats, but I also had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people in line who I’m pleased to now call my friends. (I even had a couple of people recognising me by my tumblr/twitter name once I’d told them who then proceeded to tell me that they watch and love my videos which overwhelmed and shocked me because I never even considered anyone recognising me outside of the internet!)
After everyone was seated, Jen came out with her Starbucks in hand – of course! – full of smiles and waves and was welcomes by a swarm of cheers. The panel began with someone asking Jen to describe Lana, Jared and Ginny in one word.
“Lana, committed. Jared, loveable.” And then after a long pause of pondering: “Ginny, the-absolute-best-friend-slash-tv-mother-most-wonderful-human-I’ve-ever-met.”
She was then asked about Season 4 and what she could tell us about the upcoming season. She responded by saying she couldn’t say too much after only having read the first script but that we will see the backstory of all the Frozen characters and how similar characters reflect those relationships as well: “I think sometimes we’re going to see bits of Elsa in Emma – the fact that they both have magic and they both don’t know how to use it, they didn’t ask for it.”
She spoke about the back story she’d built for herself for the character of Emma and how she’d done a lot of research and read many memoirs of children who had grown up in foster-care which really informed the way she portrays Emma. She gave the example of how she always portrays Emma as having a hearty appetitive which stems from the fact that she may not always have had much to eat growing up the way she did.
She was asked a question about her superpower and why it works on characters like Regina and not so much on characters such as Hook, which Jen didn’t really fully understand, but they key part of that response that I took note of to share was that she said her superpower works best when she is not emotionally invested: “I do think she’s attracted to Hook so her quote unquote superpower doesn’t necessarily work as well when her emotions are involved.”
Hello everyone!! How are you? I recently hit 1k followers and I cannot believe it!! Thank you so much! *throws confetti* (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
After coming on tumblr in February, I decided to start making gifs in April, and I certainly wouldn’t have imagined I’d hit 1k in less than a year! I would like to especially thank @niuniente because as I already said before, she’s the one who made me come back and start sinning thanks to, guess what, drama cd audios! :’) Another special thanks goes to @pyunsukeewho taught me how to gif and inspired me to become a graphic maker myself Thank you also for being an amazing friend! ♥
Tumblr has become such an important part of my life. I’ve made so many close friends here, and I’m really happy I met them. I consider my followers as friends too, I’m grateful for each and every single one of you! Your messages and tags in my graphics always make me happy :’) ♥
Thank you for being here, and for watching me grow as a graphic maker! I hope we can sin stay together, laugh, and have fun for a much longer time!!
I love you all very very very much!!! *hugs you* *smooches your face*
Sideblog:@fyhaikyuu - A big thanks to my lovely fellow mods who became important people to me ♥ I’m very proud of how our blog is growing, and I’m very honored to be part of it and to be called your obaasin :’D
This time it’s a Haikyuu!! theme for my second ff, and although it’s almost winter time, I chose this summer edit to celebrate the animated summer training camp arc we’ve all been craving waiting for! :D (I wish Fukuroudani appeared in this official art too though ;w;)
Bolded: My beloved cuties! / Italicized: Amazing mutuals!
So I’m home sick today and I have nothing to do so I thought why not. matsumoto-ruki here you go, ereri elevator!au
I saw you trying to hit the “door close” button in the elevator but I made it in and then I pushed every single button to make you later for work, but now we’re stuck in this fucking elevator as it stops at every single floor and I don’t know what to say other than “you started it” AU
“Hey, wait up” Eren
shouted at the elevator, running as fast as he could to catch it. He was running
late and he couldn’t afford waiting for the elevator on top of it.
The person in the elevator though
simply gave Eren a glance and reached for a button and then the doors started
closing and the guy had the nerve to smirk after doing so. Luckily for Eren he
was close enough to reach the door and stop it before closing all the way
through. He got in and he was so pissed off that he didn’t pause and consider
the consequences of what he was about to do and proceeded to press every button
imaginable leading to their floor.
It was a fifty-storey building and
he’d just pressed all the numbers leading to the 35th.
“That I’m in love with you, man,” Link says. “That all the time in the world could pass and I would still be here…” He takes Rhett’s hand and draws it back to his face, letting Rhett cup his cheek, letting Rhett curl his fingers around the shell of Link’s ear. “Hopelessly in love with you,” he finishes.
Just wanted to let you cupcakes know, I will no longer be promoting shopglare.com.
Despite hearing from other bloggers that this store is reliable, my experience with them has been shady and irresponsible at best. I was supposed to be paid the first time on September 7th - it is now November 7th, and I have heard absolutely nothing from them, even though I’ve emailed them many times.
Maybe for buyers, the store is reliable. But in my experience, if a store is shady in paying its promoters, it is shady for the buyers as well.
So, I advise you guys to be very wary of buying from this store.
I try very hard to promote stores only if they are reliable - I wouldn’t have promoted this one if I didn’t think they were - so I am quite upset that this store has compromised what I feel is your guys’ trust in me. That is what makes me upset most of all.
Anyway, I’ll be removing all promotions for them ASAP. I’m really disappointed that this store turned out to be sketchy, as I wanted to buy a haul from them…but noooo way would I do that now, wow.
I hope you cupcakes are all having lovely weekends, thank you for reading~! <3
