I'm still alive!

 Hey Everybody! Sorry I've been a little MIA since mid July.

I'm doing well, life has just been busy - I'll probably write about it in a locked post later, if I feel like it - but not right now! 

This is mainly just a reminder to everyone that I will NOT be going to VanCon this year. It's too early in the month and I'm not usually in Vancouver at this time of year (right now, I am in Ontario - where I will remain until the 31st, because I pushed back my flights even further just yesterday in order to spend a little more time here.)

So, no VanCon for me.

I hear tell that next year's VanCon will be in October! This means that a)I'll more than likely be able to go (provided I'm still living in Vancouver at that time,) and b)All the lovely visitors will actually get a taste of the rainy season (ie: late fall/winter) in Vancouver - where it gets dark really early and it's wet and mildly chilly. So, that'll be a little bit of veritas for how the series is filmed, because it really only gets 2.5 months of nice summer weather for filming before we're all plunged into the long dark tea time of the soul... uh, I mean, the long dark winter.

For those not subscribed to my AO3 account, I'm currently posting the final installment of the demented'verse over there (while frantically trying to finish it before AO3 catches up with the chapters that I still need to write/work on.

Nice to know you are still alive. I hope you are having a good time in Ontario. Miss seeing you this year, but there is always next year.

I do know what weather is like in this part of the country in late October. It is so unpredictable. We could have a long Indian summer and still be having nice weather, or it could be the rainy season started in full force and we are met with nothing but wind and rain. I'm still coming to VanCon in October, but will be flying instead of driving. I don't want to chance the roads at that time of year. So, it will be a much shortened Con for me next year, but still hoping/planning on going.

I miss seeing you this year too! But yes, next year is more likely to work out for me - so, at the very least, I can stop by and say hello. :)

Yeah, Oregon isn't that different from Vancouver really, just a little more south. ;) Good to know that you'll be flying - while at that time of year, it'll mostly just be rain, it's still pretty miserable driving in a downpour. May as well fly in!

I'm glad you're still planning to go!!

Shame about this year's Vancon, but maybe good news about next year's, hey.

Yup! It'll make next years' all the better, I'm sure - having missed out on this years due to poor timing. :)
