the obligatory infinitus roundup post (like oh em gee)

okay, so, I wasn't looking forward to Infinitus cause I didn't think I'd know anybody, I didn't really have time to take out of my life to go, I thought all I'd do was wander around hiding out in the canon-based panels geeking out over HP.

Did that happen? No! It did not. And I'm so ridiculously glad, because I had the BEST TIME EVERRRRRRR.

Holy crap. I used to think that people who came to cons just to hang out with their friends and skip out on the programming were missing out, but now i know that i was very naive and foolish, for lo, Sitting By The Pool Drinking Fruity Drinks is the mecca of every fan con, if I only had known!!!!!

I didn't intend to skip out on so much of the actual programming, and the few panels I did get to see were fantastic. But basically, all we did this whole long weekend was hang out and drink too much and talk about fandom, and lo, it was epic. So epic.

And now for the requisite 'what-i-did-on-my-summer-vacation' recap, replete with shameless namedropping, as expected:

So now I'm waiting for Zorb and NQ to get back to the room, whereupon I shall throw everything into a suitcase and be on my merry way back to Virginia.

I think, all in all, the last 3 days have been the best 3 days of my entire fannish life. It felt absolutely transcendent to me to be able to continually connect with so many old friends. I love you all, and I can't wait for 2012.

Eta: ahh, and then on the shuttle sugareey told me all about real quidditch league, and basically delighted me bc Omg quidditch, and gave me all kinds of plot ideas for a story about real life harry and Draco and their mutual quest to catch a sexy, sexy snitch.

God, i love fandom!
