I rarely post other than on my shows, but I was wondering if anyone else is going to DragonCon this year?

It's one of those really awesome years for guests... Gina Torres from FIREFLY (last one I have not met from that show), 4 people from THE EXPANSE, Catherine Tate (one of my favorite companions from DOCTOR WHO) and Pearl Mackie, several people from STAR TREK:  DISCOVERY, several from AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., and a bunch of others... and that is just people I haven't met yet over the years going to DragonCon.

Not to mention a slew of other actors/actresses that I have already met.

This is going to be a great one, and I am super excited.

Oh, I'd love to meet Gina Torres.  :hearts:  Also Catherine Tate and Pearl Mackie, and the cast of SHIELD. Of course, I will not be able to go, as usual....

Meaning that he will secretly be in attendence as a special guest, rather than as his board identity (*).
(*) Were I more courageous, with no children to protect, I might be tempted to write a thinly veiled account of a certain SHIELD agent, on and off their favorite SF BBSs, titled "The Board Identity"

But you're right, Farscape: I've often re-read the group con reports from our early years, and thought that we should do one last valiant con together before it's all over.

I can't imagine what it would be like, but I suddenly realized that my movie for tonight MUST be RED.

Yes, it's true, I'll be moderating a Trunkards forum and a special fundraiser for Spacious Skies-- and handing out advance copies of RH Factor III to especially generous donors.  :cool:

Oh, I wish I had the money to attend one of these cons. I would love to meet Catherine Tate, who is still my favorite DW companion.

It has been a blast so far!  Highlights to date... met Tom Welling, THE EXPANSE cast (Shohreh Aghdalashoo [spelling is off, I am certain], Cas Anvar, Frankie Adams, Dominique Tipper), Demore Barnes, Bruce Langly, STAR TREK:  DISCOVERY cast (Jayne Brook, Mary Chieffo, Kenneth Mitchell, Jason Isaacs), Eric Edelstein (he voices Grizz on WE BARE BEARS, a really great cartoon that my nephew got me into), Dichen Lachman, and Catherine Tate, who poses great and funny pics with you.

Today, waiting to see Gina Torres, Pearl Mackie, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, and Lou Diamond Phillips, with Evangeline Lilly arriving tomorrow.

And been to some fun panels so far, with more scheduled today and tomorrow.  I love DragonCon!!!

Apparently, Peter Capaldi (DW, Twelfth Doctor) has been there, hanging out with fans on Friday, probably so he could give those who legit appreciate him some extra time beyond the cattle-call long lines of autographs and photos. I know from experience that he always tries to give people in line a few extra minutes, because he's generous, but those lines still aren't the most satisfactory experience. (At San Francisco Comic Con, I got to talk with him a little in the autograph line and show him a drawing, but entirely screwed up my photo op due to anxiety. Would love a chance to talk to him without the time pressure of a line.)

A fan called "tinywonder" created a wonderful, big Twelfth Doctor puppet, and Capaldi was having fun playing with it yesterday, making it talk with his voice, and having it sign an autograph with his help. There's a thoroughly adorable video of it online.

Cool that Pearl Mackie and some "Expanse" people are also there. I wish I could've been there, but have never been to DragonCon.

I am SO jealous that you met Tom Welling and Catherine Tate. I really need to save up and go to one of these conventions.
