I get that not everyone ships korrasami like, obviously, but to hate on it… like aren’t we over this?? Haven’t we all moved past that? They’re canon. Guess what that means? They’re endgame. They’re be all, end all. The comics coming out are going to be all about, you’ve guessed it, their relationship. Ship your own ships, but don’t spread hate. Sometimes it’s taken more personally than what you’ve intended.
At TGIF/F, we pride ourselves on being a con run by fans, for fans. And at our con, it’s you, our attendees, that dictate the conversation. The anchor of our programming is discussion panels, and we need you to help us shape what those conversations will be!
If you have an idea for a panel topic, even if you’re not attending the con, let us know! Submitting a topic doesn’t mean you’re committed to moderate it if it makes it onto the schedule. This is just brainstorming right now to get the conversation started, and we want to hear your voice. Just a title/topic is fine, but if you can send us more details on what you have in mind, that’s even better! Even a half-baked idea is okay; we can spin it into gold for you.
Here are some examples of panel topics that have already been suggested:
Fake Dating: We Love It For Real
The Lifeboat: How to Cope When Your Ship Has Sunk
Leading Ladies (“Why CAN’T Waverly be the heir?”)
The Massive Ef/fect of Femslash in Video Games
Diversity and Representation in Media (probably will include but is not solely a Bury Your Gays discussion)
Right now, we’re looking for broad topics rather than show/fandom-specific ideas. We hope to provide a few panel spots on the schedule for specific fandoms, and we’ll post more information on those when the con gets closer. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, nominating a meta or multifandom panel couldn’t be easier – just drop us a line! You can:
“You have indeed felt a great loss, but love is a form of energy, and it swirls around us. The Air Nomads’ Aang’s love for you has not left this world. It is still inside of your heart, and is reborn in the form of new love.”
The announcement of the upcoming graphic novel brought up all sorts of old feels, so in commemoration of the continuing story, I decided to break my own heart. Enjoy.
