    Going through my favorite stories

    As the title says, I've been going through my favorite stories, and re-reading many of them. There are a few where I honestly can't remember why I faved them; they clearly spoke to me at the time, but now, possibly years later, I don't know why or what they meant to me. (It's not as if they're bad stories, generally, just ones that don't amuse or impress or touch me any more.)

    Suddenly, I feel the urge to pony again.

    I think I just got smacked on the face with the Clue By Four of Inspiration +2. Because I've got this idea for a slightly Halloweenish romance-slash-adventure story, featuring Davenport of all ponies, that keeps filling up my imagination and diverting all the other stuff.

    So... perhaps, just perhaps, there might be a new story from me for the Halloween!

Post-Con Feelings (Worldcon 75, not Bronycon!) · 3:42pm Aug 14th, 2017

The first ever Worldcon in Finland is over, and I'm making a note here: a huge success! :twistnerd:

No, literally. Depending on how you count, it was apparently the 2nd or 3rd biggest Worldcon ever, anywhere. Which explains the crowding issues; sorry about that, folks! (I was just a lowly security volunteer / logistics staff member, but still.) I don't think anyone expected it would be this big an event. Thankfully, the con staff could rustle some extra program space from Messukeskus, alleviating the problem a lot. But all that aside, we Finnish fans are totally stoked by this. It was awesome to see so many people coming from all over the world to Helsinki, to celebrate our shared geeky fun and fandom subculture. :yay:

Congrats to all the Hugo winners, too; you can see the list here: Hugo Award winners 2017 (complete with some interesting data about the nominations and voting, if you're into that kind of nerdery).

Saw a lot of friends and acquaintances; encountered a number of SF and fantasy authors, cartoonists, and more; went to a bunch of interesting panels and presentations; cheered at the Hugo awards ceremony; had to rush off several times to get more T-shirts for sale; bought more books than I can probably fit into my already crammed bookshelves; and overall had a lot of fun, despite weariness and the worst thunderstorm in years.

And now, time to start preparing for the Dublin Worldcon in 2019...

Great to hear Lurks! :yay:

Awesome! It's also really cheering to see the numbers stay strong for Hugo voting even with the Puppies having taken their ball and gone home. And there was a good crop of nominees this year.
