BUT LIKE Thorin and Thranduil’s conversation was so dramatic in the movie, but in the books it was just like
Thranduil: WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU DOING IN THE FOREST
Thorin: FEED ME!!
Are there any Thorin/Thranduil stories in which Thranduil says WELL OKAY THEN and serves fabulous meals to Thorin and if not why not.
About the new photo of Lee Pace in the upcoming early 1980s computer boom drama, Halt And Catch Fire: took me an hour to realize it was a PC tower lying on its side because Lee Pace is so tall he makes it look like a radio or something.
I took the plunge and registered for WisCon, thanks to a donated membership from an awesome author! FYI, WisCon is The World’s Leading Feminist Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention, running May 23-26, 2014. This year’s Guests of Honor are Hiromi Goto and N. K. Jemisin.
One problem: I can’t actually afford the plane ticket or lodging. If possible, please consider donating to my travel fund, or boosting this post.
Any donated funds over travel expenses would go to food, transportation, Medievalpoc hosting and webmaster costs, software, and related expenses.
I had received some private inquiries about being on some panels about “historical accuracy” and representation in speculative fiction, and I’m genuinely enamored with the idea. If I can do anything to contribute to the think tanks that go on during a Con like this, I’d relish the opportunity. I’m sure I’m well capable of contributing to the fansquee!
I have applied to some assistance organizations, like the esteemed Con or Bust, but if I can raise the funds independently I would retract my request.
I can’t wait, and I’m looking forward to my first Sci Fi/Fantasy Con! If you’re going to be there, feel free to send a message!
If you want me to be on your WisCon panel PLEASE LET ME KNOW and I’ll see what I can do!
