jusT STICK A FUCKING BEE ON YOUR EYE
HOW IS THIS A LIFE HACK
I'd like to say that it seems the WTNV and Dashcon accounts of what went down with the cash seem to be saying essentially the same things. Both of them are putting themselves in a better light... but I think they're saying the same thing: the money wasn't there fast enough. (WTNV said something like "not delivered in a timely manner and DashCon said something like "we didn't have it all immediately but we were trying to get it). Just to answer one of your questions at the end of your fab post
Yeah, I guess you’re right! I was just thinking that ‘unable to pay’ (from Jeffrey) was a bit different than ‘could have paid in literally ten minutes’ (from Dashcon), but the more I stare at it the more I realize they could quite easily be referring to the same sequence of events. Thanks for making me look twice, I’ll remove the question - and thanks for calling my post fab. *blushes*
as a volunteer i can answer this question fairly accurately: "At what point did they start checking IDs instead of bracelets before panels?" one of the volunteers pointed out to an admin at our mandatory info meeting thursday night (the other was friday morning) that the bracelets were not getting put on at registration so anyone could put them on. the admin & i believe head of security then decided that cards would be checked at the doors of 18+ events/panels. it was decided before con started.
Excellent, thank you. That makes a lot of sense.
The masterpost has been updated, so go check it out! (Also it was made at 5 am and is now buried in the tag, so people who weren’t on the tag then but are on it to see this post now should go read. I promise it’s worth it.)
-Reminder to my followers that I tag all Dashcon posts with ‘#dashcon’ and will try to keep them to a minimum from now on. Sorry luvs!-
Last night my little sister (5th grade) was making an e-mail account
She saw gender and went to click female when she noticed the “other” choice
She looked at me confused and I started to explain that some people don’t think they fit in with strictly male or female
"Oh! You mean like transgender and stuff like that. I was freaked out for a second- I thought they meant robots."
Yet another example the kids are more open-minded than adults
AU where Harry is brought up by Sirius and Remus.
Harry swaggering into Hogwarts at age 11.
Harry trying to lean back in his chair like he’d seen Sirius do.
Harry knowing all the secret passage ways in his very first year itself.
Harry knowing the perfect hexes for Malfoy.
Harry pretending to be really embarrassed by Remus teaching them in 3rd year, but secretly feeling delighted when he finds the rest of his class thinks he’s the coolest teacher they’ve had.
Harry getting howlers from Sirius announcing the next Weird Sisters concert.
Harry fiercely defending werewolves.
And most importantly, Harry who is happy and loved. Harry who has someone to go home to. Harry who has someone to talk about his teenage woes to. Harry who grew up knowing what wonderful, brave people his parents were.
