I’m not going to write out WHY LeakyCon was so amazing, and I don’t want to write about my entire history with the HP fandom to convey WHY this past weekend was so REALLY REALLY AWESOME.
Here are just a few anecdotes that may help me explain it.
The fact that I regarded not a single person as “famous” the entire weekend. I talked to everyone regardless and I felt they did the same.
Hugs didn’t feel constricting or silly or painful. Especially Dinah hugs, ’cause Dinah gives really good hugs.
I talked about real things, important things, with people so similar and so different from me.
WIZARD ROCK. Bacon-eating, guitar-smashing, eardrum-blasting wizard rock.
Letting the wrockers DJ the ball was the greatest choice ever made.
And I’m going to miss everyone so much.
