on the next episode of hannibal, dr. lecter will spend the entire 45 minutes reading us his favorite cannibal bedtime stories in his jammies in front of the fireplace that coincidentally has stuffed horned animal heads on display. gather round children, have a seat. let uncle lecter tell you a thing.
I will only let him tell me a thing if I can have some wine.
I would really love to go to a con the reviewers are at and meet them, but last time I did I chickened out because I was afraid of coming across as stupid/immature or crying if I did, and unfortunately, I still have those fears, even though I know I wouldn’t be the first.
I hope that someday I’ll be able to muster enough courage to go to a con and talk to some of them.
It’s so worth, it, anon. I went with a group to MAGFest last year and we were all nervous. Some of us did cry, myself included. But it’s worth it. The reviewers are so nice and friendly and they understand. My advice is to buddy up with a friend or meet up with a group of friends there, so you can all support each other and not let the anxiety get too bad.
As someone who was *in* said recent MAGFest group, even if only for a day, I second this sentiment completely. The anxiety melts away when you’re around people who speak your language, and the reviewers were just as nice as could be, even Lupa when I told her that I probably sounded like a goob, but I was having a hard time believing she was real. It works out, I promise.
