You'll be loved, you'll be loved, like you never have known. When memories of me will seem more like bad dreams. Just a series of blurs, like I never occurred. Someday, you will be loved.

Thanks for mentioning the "new ideas" in fanfic--they include:

2 new fanfic improv games--party guests (folks cosplay and audience/participants have to guess who they're cosplaying); and live action freeze tag (you might have seen this on who's line is it anyway)

webcomic panel

manga meet up

2 new workshops by toni levi, one including the joss whedon universes and one on shapeshifters in anime/manga and in ainu folktales

and on-site zine

my aspiration for kumoricon is live streaming video for folks to watch and vote on fanfic bedtime stories from across the country

also a correction: due to the fact that i'm experimenting with some new things at SC, i've arranged to finalize my panel forms after SC, to reflect what worked and what didn't or what could better be performed in what ways.

Thanks and love & sorry i missed the yummy food
