the only problem I’m having with all this excitement for the trailer is that it is reminding me of Comic Con and now I’m all sad that I’m not around the group, holding hands and screaming and freaking out at each other with excitement.
Outside, it’s cool and noisy, the cloud cover that waited over us in line having never been burned off by the sun. With every step away from Hall H, it dissipates a little more, a shadow that now seems to exist solely on Twitter. I realize how hungry I am after only a day of Hall H junk food, how tired I am, how little any of the footage actually hung with me.
Through the rest of the evening, when people find out I was in Hall H, they ask me how it was, in terms you might usually reserve for a theme-park ride, and I have to admit that it was a lot of fun. But it doesn’t really last for me. It’s a series of carefully constructed moments, designed less to be long-lasting memories than in-the-moment staccato bursts of emotion. The reason to go to Hall H isn’t for the proximity to stars or the exclusivity of the footage — it’s to go to Hall H itself, to add this experience to the memory bank. For me, the day already begins to fog over, turning into a muggy haze.
so my camping group was that group of assholes that didn’t sleep the entire night. We started camping at 3:35pm on Saturday and we were mostly going strong (and by strong, I mean loud) at 3am. We continually were barking with laughter. We got lots of dirty looks.
but the best is when, around 2:30am we joked that we should get really excited and yell Misha Collins and troll the line to pretend that he was there, except when we jokingly said Misha rather loudly at one point, people woke up and popped up like meerkats and started looking around excitedly
Oh man. I went to quite a few panels (some planned, some unplanned) and they were all mostly really awesome.
but I think in terms of which ones I enjoyed the most, I’d have to say either the Lost Girl panel or Teen Wolf panel. For the same reason. Both sets of actors just had tons of fun and had incredible chemistry with each other.
Which isn’t to say the other panels I went to didn’t, but I definitely laughed the most at those two panels.
We ordered pizza to our Hall H line at 2am and the guy delivered on a bicycle and he got stopped by a security officer and we thought we’d gotten him in trouble for some reason, but security guard just wanted to know if the delivery dude had a menu and how late they were open.
