Ellen Muth - We got Ellen at our table straight off the bat (not a sign of things to come!) she was super sweet and less nervous than I imagined.
Aaron Abrams - He said lovely things about my flower crowns (the ones at our table and at others) decided that I should promo my crowns with “the cumberbund feel”.
Demore Barnes - Had some lovely white wine, we watched him read his invite and it was beautiful!
Hugh Dancy - So we went around the table and asked where everyone was from, being from Hampshire I won! He left with lots of Jaffa Cakes and after having some whisky (and safe to say his tolerance for whisky is v. different from fanfic Will.) He was super lovely and up for the weekend and it made me really happy to see him comfortable! It was decided that Tr/ump talk was banned for the weekend to give everyone a week. Hugh took three taps to be pulled away from our table so dude wanted a chat!
Scott Thompson - He recognised me from RDC1! Amazing! We played Cards Against Humanity and of course the “Preller” white card won!
Bryan Fuller - We were the last table at the Meet and Greet, Bryan didn’t manage to get to us until just after 3am. He was lovely and still up for it even though it was so late! It was amazing how he just stayed at those tables until their chats were done. He saw my Cards Against Hannibal and took a photo of a chilton card to show Raul! We talked loads about American Gods, got loads of tit bits and then finally got around to discussing Hannibals future. I thought it was super important we translate this info to everyone:
The options are as follows:
Swing Gaumonts Way: Continue the Hannibal and Will story (CUBAAAAAA)
Swing MGMs Way: SOTL but, they loose Gaumont and the rights to Will.
Bryan was basically gauging the opinion of the room. There is a option to do Gaumont first, and then potentially go to MGM after. But basically it’s a choice about whether we want Will to continue being in the show. (And with Hugh Dancy here, it’s awful to think about!)
I’m personally massively of the opinion to finish what’s been started story wise, we need to continue with Will and Hannibal, and I’m happy to sacrifice a potential SOTL story line for it, but there’s always a chance to go back to SOTL with MGM after the Hannibal/Will story.
Let Bryan know your thoughts but it’s important to know that a SOTL story will not include Will in his current form.
(Serious bit over)
We got out of the M&G just before 4, Bryan did mention he hit a wall and honestly I don’t blame him. It’s by far the longest M&G but absolutely worth it!
Bryan took selfies with every table and hopefully he’ll upload them.
