ColossalCon 08

So I'll go ahead and say ColossalCon was amazing. As I thought, it was much bigger than A & G Ohio. This was good and bad, as you might imagine. But okay... let's just start...

The trip went surprisingly well. I hardly got carsick at all on the way there. I was, however, paralyzed with fear. ... Yeah. With good reason.

Getting in there, it was already buzzing with craziness. There was a little over an hour until the FMA panel, so I wanted to make sure I got some stuff for them to sign. We had to wait in line for the dealer's room. That was unexpected, but totally understandable considering the crowd. I got the FMA Season 2 Part 2 for them to sign and some posters. I didn't let myself get much more during that time because I really wanted to make sure I didn't get too distracted before the panel.

It was actually easy to find where the panel was to be held. So we stood and waited for the door to open. (My first youtube video, by the way. Haha.) Unfortunately, I didn't realize that there was a second door to that room and people were already lined up. o.O; We were lucky to get in. Super lucky. (Thank you, God!)

The panel was wonderful. (I really need a full video of it!!) I pretty much knew nothing about the voice actors before going into the panel besides a few roles they'd done. Vic Mignogna was really quite sweet. I loved what he said about about Ed. How he starts out saying "Alchemists are the closest things to Gods." and not too long after tells Al "We're not Gods. ...  who couldn't even save a little girl". Caitlin was really sweet as well. And I loved Vic's story of how they first met. Hehe. It was cute. She ran up and hugged him at a con and said she was a Christian too. And he didn't even know she was Winry yet. HeH. Aaron Dismuke was... a normal teenage boy. Haha. The other two, especially Vic, took the lead during most of the panel, but Aaron was really funny when he did say something. "Silly, Vic <3!" *Giggles Manically* ... *Cough* What?

R-right... so anyways, then came the signing. But you see, the panel had run over and the crew needed to set up for Vic's concert. So we went outside for the signing. And waited, and waited, and waited. Vic left before I could get his autograph. :( But even before I could get nearly in front... it started raining. Yeah. We were outside. And it starts raining. So, they start ushering us back inside. But not before it starts pouring. Yeah, we got soaked. My poor Mommy who doesn't care anything about these people. :(

Finally, after moving to the third signing spot... I really started to panic attack. But I made it. Caitlin said she liked my name. ^_^ And she wrote "God Bless" on my poster. How sweet. Aaron asked me how long I'd been waiting. I think I just sort of shrugged. So then, he asked, "Did you get wet?" To which I said a very simple, "Yes." He said he was laughing. o.O; How nice. And that he wouldn't wait in line for him. "Aaron Dismuke's a jerk." Not sure what I said... again. But then, he said, "No really. I'm a jerk."

And well, I think I'll have to be honest. While he talked to me, my heart escaped. *Dies* Oh my goodness, stop, Hachi! Why must you do this? I suppose the funny part is that my friend, Michelle, said she wanted Ed, and I could be with Al. This was... quite awhile ago. *Sighs* This is troubling in more ways then one. Number one is pretty simple for those who know me well, but I won't say it. I also really don't think Aaron is actually like Al, who I totally would run away with if he were real. Al's such a sweetie! <3

But even those two things aside, I'm so furious at myself. I'm pretty in touch with who I am as a person, and okay with it. But I really truly hate it when I act so... normal. Letting myself get obsessed with a pretty actor. ~_~; I disgust myself. He's not Morgan. I might have to type it a few times. Not Morgan. Not Morgan. Aaron Dismuke is not Morgan. That's... wow, so obvious. So why I am so stupid?

And I'm really having a panic attack now. I just... I need to get through the pictures... then I can go sob. *Deep breath* Okay, please bear with me.

Vic Mignogna. ^_^

FMA Trio <3!

Hachiko and Vivienne necklace! My favorite purchases!

I still don't have Vivi's present from my birthday... so here's a picture of his present... being held hostage! :o Poor Sakura!!

Hachiko as a guard dog! A very happy guard dog! (^o^)/

This Hachi isn't particularly happy, though. See, even beyond a heart escaping situation, I'm upset because it's over. I have to put so much of myself into these big events. And when it's over... I feel like I have nothing to look forward to. Nothing to live for. I know that seems pathetic. Just like letting my heart escape for a silly voice actor. I am... very pathetic. I just wish I could actually stay at one of these. Make the experience last longer. Get a chance to do more. But I can't. I have no friends near me who would do it. I don't even know if I could take it emotionally. Not without Morgan. And my heart keeps escaping because I'm still without Morgan. It... really feels hopeless sometimes.

I'm... really sorry. ~_~; I didn't mean for this to happen. Let's end on a good note... The English Ouran cast will be announced soon. I'm hoping Vic will get Tamaki, because he really wants it. I've seen him mention it in several different videos too. Here's hoping.

PS: My linking obsession. Not gone. ~_~;

Hmm... I'm not actually sure how old Vic is. Oh, he's just the sweetest guy, though! ^_^ I hope I get a chance to actually talk to him sometime. He's really very passionate about his work and his faith as well. And I think that's so inspiring no matter what you believe in.

Ah, I know what you mean. I think there's one coming up in Erie in August for me. Mommy has to work that weekend, though. :( So I'm not sure if I'll be able to go.

It sounds like you enjoyed your time at the con! Caitlin told me about the FMA panel and the ensuing autograph signing that got moved outside, inside and all around the town, so to speak. I get to be with her at Anime Expo in just 2 days!!! It will be exciting to see/hear the Ouran Cast announcement.

You got some really cool swag. The only problem with the Dealers' Room at AX is it is HUGE!!! It's overwhelming at times. I hope I find something cool to bring back for my co-workers.

I checked out your myspace pictures, we wear the same type of glasses, although I'm getting some badly needed new ones in a couple of weeks. I'm going to have new lenses put in these currant ones so I will have a back-up pair in case anything happens to the new ones.

Well, I've rambled on long enough, Oh, how rude I didn't even introduce myself...

Hi! I'm Caitlin's Mom.

Be Blessed,
Miss Helen

Oh, my goodness. ^_^ I certainly did. It was really scary, but really wonderful. I love being around anime fans, because it's such a big part of my life. (Ah, I have the Ouran webpage open in an extra tab on my web browser at all times! I'm really excited!) Have fun at Anime Expo!

Thank you! ^_^ The Dealers' Room was the most enjoyable part of my first con, but this time it was definitely the panel. Not to mention, the dealers' room was really overwhelming. And I expect it would be even worse in a bigger con. But I still got some great stuff. Good luck in finding some fun stuff yourself!

HeH. I love my glasses. I keep getting the same kind.

Oh, It's really nice to meet you! I thought your daughter was really sweet and lovely, though I only met her briefly. I really admire her. Ah, but anyways, very nice to meet you, as I said. I feel a little silly with you having read my silly entry here. Haha. But well, my name's Valerie. ^_^ I'm mostly a writer. And lover of anime. Hehe. You can read my profile if you want to learn more about me.
