I'm back! And I bet most of you didn't even know I was gone. :P

On Friday I trundled off to the Ramada Hotel in Coventry for my first ever WriterconUK Midimeet. Of the 25 other attendees, I had met precisely one before: [livejournal.com profile] kitty_poker1, so it was a weekend of dizzying memory blanks and jumbled names/nyms/IDs.

A complete(ish) list of attendees can be found here, as I am really not up to that amount of coding right now. *g*

There were talks and presentations a-plenty, and I got to pretend I knew what I was on about by giving a talk on (my opinion on) how best to moderate communities. It was both terrifying and thrilling. And apparently also educational. (Yay me!)

I had my first ever Thai food on friday night and will now pine piteously because there is no Thai restaurant in my town and that makes me saaaaaaaad. :(

The program of events for the weekend can be found here. With any luck, people will be making posts in [livejournal.com profile] writerconuk reiterating their presentations and talks for anyone who might be interested.

Feel free to link me to anything interesting I might miss in my mad scroll through flistdom.

Roll on WriterconUK Midmeet 2010!

*smooches to you all*

Thank you!

I was so muich fun! And so many people! OMG! There's a friending frenzy on the horizon, I think. *g*

Your name came up quite often, in reference to betaing, and J2 and SGA and NCIS and and and... :D

Good times.


*smishes and twirls you*

Your talk was excellent! And put me off ever modding a comm, in the nicest possible way. It means making decisions. And, heaven forfend, tagging. *wibble*

I'll be so much nicer to comm mods from now on. It's not just a matter of clicking on 'create community' and waiting for them To Come. Eek!

How are you still awake? And [livejournal.com profile] hils is, too. There was too little alcohol involved is the only excuse. :P

The programme really worked out to be well-balanced and highly entertaining as well as educational. Who knew? It wasn't quite stick in a pin...

Roll on WriterconUK Midimeet 2010 indeed! Same place, similar time. *g*

BWAH! *smooches*

Tagging isn't so scary. repetitive yes, once you have your tag scheme in place, but once it's done, it' easy enough to keep up. ;)

I had over 5 hours sleep! That's more than I usually have when I need to be in work for noon on a Sunday, so our 3am goodnights didn't faze me at all. :P

The program was very well-balanced and educational/entertaining. I'm just very glad my pin got stuck in an afternoon slot. Trying to sound competent in the am would have been just too hard.

*twirls you*

Hurrah! You have returned to us!

I has missed you lots.

You must read: http://arch-schatten.livejournal.com/111471.html Excellent Damian characterisation. Perfect for getting a grip for fic-writing purps.

Also, I have been d/l. I went a bit mad. Will email you about it tomorrow when you're more recovered from all the fun.

~smoochies~

Hihihi!

I'll get you your emails shortly. (Am wading through the inbox right this minute *g*)

I missed you too, but I got a comics convo fix off Booster17, and got to rave about my new obsession to several other poor souls. :D

Yay icons! So much pretty!

*awaits your emails with glee*

No worries, luv. Take your time! You must be exhausted. I've heard all about your late-night chats! :oD

LOL, I hope you sang the praises of Nightstroke! Hee!

I did indeed! :D I sang long and loud while I had him captive on the train to Cheltenham Spa. :D

He also dangled Deadshot and Catman under my nose, and Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Which was sneaky and underhanded and should be commended.

Wanna mod me up at [livejournal.com profile] we_love_damian? I'm not admitting to any additional obsessions, but I just automatically went to edit the tags of a recent post (where some silly poster hadn't added her own a: tag. *pokes you*). ;)

I don't want him feeling neglected. :P

IT WASN'T EVEN MY TRAIN!

Mine was due out at 2:12, via Cheltenham Spa, and Booster's was due out about 1:15, also via Cheltenham Spa, so I jumped on that one and we gabbed all the way to CS and then I jumped off and bopped away to my MP3 player until the 2:12-as-was rolled in. LOL!

LMAO!!

He's a lot of fun, and interesting! I really like him and he has some ace icons.

Another guy or two would be cool, but we've got Booster and S2C to supply some testosterone.

*g*

His head is also too big to fit through the door now. :P

Someone want to point me towards the Batman/Flash stuff, then?

Points:

Lacey McBain's Comrades In Arms (http://www.stickymanpress.mediawood.net/comradesinarms.html), the first BatFlash I read.
BatFlash fics by Te (http://teland.com/brucewallypair.html)
[livejournal.com profile] victoria_wayne's Wallyverse, The Pirates of Vengeance, and The Bruce/Wally Bondage Fics (http://victoria-wayne.livejournal.com/106842.html) (link goes to her fic index)
Trespass not on his solitude (http://bifictionalbedlam.slashcity.net/shrift/trespassnot.html) by Shrift
Count the Days (http://frigglesch.livejournal.com/645.html) by [livejournal.com profile] frigglesch

And that about covers the high points of the BatFlash fic collection. For now. Oh! And then there's the stuff I've written, which can be found under my dcu:bruce/wally fic tag (http://darkhavens.livejournal.com/tag/dcu:bruce/wally). /shameless pimp. :D

Tis true. Tis heartbreaking. But it's the story that got me hooked, so I had to share. *g*

Catman! YIS! OMG, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle (as in Ted not Jamie) are so doing it! I always make sure my statues of them stand next to each other in faithful belief of this ~g~

~blushes~ Whoops! You're all modded up. I was thinking of asking but then I didn't want you to feel pressured into saying yes ~whistles~

Right, I'm gonna email you now, but feel free not to reply until you're all rested.

See my reply to Kitty, above, for evidence of my dedication above and beyond the call of duty. :D

I shall now immediately go and... be modly. And add the comm to the ever-growing list in my sidebar.

I'm glad you got home safe. It was lovely to meet you. Next year I will try and wean myself towards later nights, for a few weeks before hand, *grin* in the hope that I might be able to keep up with you and Kitty and Hils.

It was lovely to meet you too. You were a perfect roomie. I wasn't even tempted to bite once. :D

Ha! I do the exact same thing, from the other end of the clock. I try to dial my bodyclock back an hour or two a day for a few days before going off to visit with diurnal types. Then it slowly dials itself back down to the vampire setting. :P

Oh, it's all very well you pouting now, but wI remember how you couldn't get to sleep on Friday night until I said I wouldn't drain you because you were responsible for half the room bill. *g*

There's no thai food where I live either

Isn't it awful? I feel totally depraved deprived. I'm going to have to go hunting recipes to see if I can make my own mock-Thai. *g*

With any luck, people will be making posts in [livejournal.com profile] writerconuk reiterating their presentations and talks for anyone who might be interested.
I'll be waiting patiently for you to recap your presentation as I missed it completely.

Tap, tap, tap. Tappity, tappity, tap.

Are we Is it there yet?

I'm so pleased you enjoyed it and look forward to meeting you again next year.
