BABSCon Meetup Participants · 10:43pm May 1st, 2016

So, BABSCon was a blast, and I hosted a fanfic meetup Friday and Saturday night in my hotel room. We had a surprising larger number of people come through, and we even got some of them to sign in. So, as promised (though it took me a week) here's the results of the sign-in sheets, so everyone can remember who they may have been talking to. Also, my apologies to anyone if I couldn't read your handwriting and spelled your name wrong below. Let me know and I'll fix it.

First - Friday night come join us from 4-5pm in Silver Span's Salon for the official Community Guest Meet and Greet. All six of us will be together to meet you guys... probably. We're also going to record a video of me getting punched in the arm. (Fun?) Get hype.

What Babscon Has Shown Me: The Good and the Babs / Upcoming News About OctiScratchness · 3:15am Apr 25th, 2016

Over the weekend, I traveled to SF and attended Babscon on Saturday, and I have A HECK OF A LOT TO SAY....

The vendors and variety of goods available for purchase was amazing. I couldn't have been happier with the people and the products on sale. This, perhaps, was the best (and only good) part of the entire con.

Settling Back In · 4:16am Apr 26th, 2016

Overall, BABSCon 2016 was a blast. Going to an event like a con requires careful orchestration when you have kids in tow. You’re familiar with some variation of the the fox, goose, and beans logic puzzle, right? Traveling with kids is kind of like that, except you also have a time bomb with a broken countdown display strapped to your chest.

Here are some highlights from the weekend:

At BABSCon Hotel... A Class Act · 7:34am Apr 19th, 2019

Here in Burlingame outside of San Francisco. Checked into the hotel the night before the con starts and it is buzzing with fans. My Little Pony The Movie is playing in the registration line. Then I get the key card. The Con is a class act. A close look at the card on the right left shows the legend, 621. 6 hours sleep, 2 meals, 1 shower a day. Good

Horizon sighting opportunity: Babscon! · 2:18am Apr 16th, 2022

I know I haven't been active around here lately -- kinda fell out of the habit of everything during the pandemic, including writing. But I'm still forcing myself out the door for conventions every once in a while!

Case in point: I'm in San Francisco this weekend for Babscon, doing my not-actually-patented Drunken Pony Tarot Readings and mostly just kicking it and seeing what other authors are around. Come say hi!

For Babscon attendees · 6:18pm Mar 31st, 2018

Last night was awfully slow to spin up socially, but Saturday seems to be heating up, with a lot of folks arriving for the day or an overnight. Xepher is trying to corral the fanfic crowd into a laid-back author gather tonight in a hotel room. It’s a closed door party (not on the party floor so we have to obey quiet hours rules), but basically if you know either one of us well enough to be reading this announcement, come join in and socialize with your fellow FimFic peeps!

Ye Olde, Quasi-Annual BABSCon Post · 3:06am Apr 14th, 2022

What year is it? What world are we in? I have no idea at this point. Life is chaos and I am merely swept up in the tide.

Regardless, I'm going to hang out, converse, party, and drink with nerds of all stripes down in SFO this weekend. Hope ya'll can join. If you want in on author-ish stuff, join our Discord! https://discord.gg/UcdkySvvPD

Muh BABSCon 2018 Rap · 11:44am Apr 3rd, 2018

Guess who went to BABSCon 2018? This guy! And on top of wasting tons of money on ridiculous stuff and going to panels and collecting lots of party stories, I also lugged my microphone and my phantom power setup with me, and I took two free hours to make a little rap in my hotel room.

Become one of the only 10 people to listen to it before it loses all relevance!

@ BABSCon 2016 - NEIGHhEM concert · 4:38am Apr 24th, 2016

Taps is playing. Damn good set. Liked Garnika and Psycosis. Fuck I'm old though. Not 19 anymore. Got tired after just an hour. Niece is having fun. She had a picture with Garnika and an autograph. (I think she has a star crush on him, lol)

BABSCon checklist · 3:20pm Apr 22nd, 2016

In preparation for my one day at BABSCon tomorrow...

1. Pack son's diaper bag.
2. Pack an extra set of clothes for me, hubby, and son.
3. Look at map to hotel and convention.
4. Charge the super expensive camera I'm borrowing from big brother.
5. Get snacks and drinks for the trip.
6. Continue to resist buying random stuff so that I have more spending money at the con.

Babscon! · 10:50pm Apr 20th, 2016

It's pony convention time this weekend! Babscon's fanfic programming has historically been meh — there wasn't a single panel the first year, though they've gotten better, and this year's panels show some promise — but as a San Francisco convention it's very west-coast central, and (more importantly) it's close enough for me to make.

Looks like I'm the Tabletop Gaming Lead at BABSCon 2017 · 8:29am Jul 26th, 2016

And Naan is returning as the lead of Children's Programming - exciting news for the both of us.

I'll be running through my usual contact list to rehire people, but do let me know if you're interested in working in BABSCon's Tabletop Gaming next April, either as staff or with a tabletop gaming event. Volunteer and staff applications are open.
