Can I ask a bit of advice? I've just found out that not one, but two! of my all time favorite writers are going to be at 221b con, and well, I want to meet them and say hello, but I'm ridiculously shy and more awkward than Molly Hooper. I also don't want to seem creepy for being all "I follow you on tumblr you're fabulous!". Ugh I just don't know what to do!
My advice is not to worry! Possibly the worst advice ever, but the people we inadvertently place on a pedestal put their pants on one leg at a time just like the rest of us. Which is awesome! Because that means they’re probably tickled half to death they have a fan, hella nervous that you’re nervous, and wanting more than anything to appear cool and confidant and awesome, and you both end up flailing your arms at each other in mutual happy.
Hello, pot. My name is kettle. And I get super excited/nervous when I send an Ask to someone I look up to. The first time I spoke with (artists) flyingrotten or ilovemyjawn or taikova or enerjax or gingercatsneez or stitchy or mystradedoodles or voodooling or (authors) beautifulfic or madlori of mazarin221b or mydwynter or roane72 or wntrs or mildredandbobbin or nana-41175 or moonblossom or wearitcounts or cypress-tree or ad infinitum, I was a nervous wreck. I don’t think I’ve conveyed to any of them adequately just how much they inspire me, just how much I want to draw them things and make them happy because they make me happy.
I know if anyone ever approaches me and says, “I follow you on Tumblr.” I’ll probably just cover my face and cry a lot because holy crap that’s amazing and I don’t deserve such wonderful things!
Anyway, long story short: It’s okay if you’re shy. Just be who you are and let the objects of your affection know you care in your own way. By simply waving, or telling them how much you enjoy their work, or baking them a cake, or serenading them original poetry. It’s all fine. And I can promise you, without a doubt, anyone would be thrilled to hear from you.
If you don’t get around to it, that’s okay too. We all get a little anxious. I still haven’t sent Asks gushing my love for reapersun or shootbadcabbies or archia. I hope to someday!
John walking in wearing his old uniform bein like “it doesn’t fit like it used to” and Sherlock being like
While I’m on the subject of Dragon*Con…is there a Sherlock meet up this year? Does anyone know? Am I making this up? Are we human or are we dancers?
Maybe I should just crash 221B Con. Like, show up for five minutes and then drive back home. @_@
I hope in s4 John gets really really mad and yells “William Sherlock Scott Holmes!” and Sherlock just freezes
November’s a good month for you though? I know we’d love to find you a way here for a con n.n
Ohhh, I wish so badly! I dunno if I can afford a trip to Canada. I live right next to Georgia and I have free room and board. That’s the only way I can afford Dragon*Con.
You've probably already answered this before...but why can't you go to 221b?
I have to work. I’m not allowed to take off during the months of March, April or May due to the (frankly) overwhelming work load. I will be attending Dragon*Con, though, and I’m very excited about that.
I think there’s a Sherlock meet up at Dragon*Con? I’m not really sure. I’m going to have to rely on other people to tell me these things/invite me because nine times out of ten I don’t know what I’m doing.
