Save TSCC at Comic Con

It's been a year since TSCC was dropped. I know, I can't believe it either. Seems like only yesterday I was crying my eyes out and cursing Fox. Oh, heh. It was. That's how I start every day since Sarah Connor disappeared from TV.

I've spent nearly a year now with savethescc, brainstorming, planning, organizing and campaigning for more. The chances were always slim. We all knew that going in. But It's too good of a story and the characters too well developed to simply fade away from the Terminator verse. I mean seriously, should something that started as strong as The Terminator be stuck playing out along the path of T3 and T4? HELL NO. Also, there's no Cameron or Derek on that path... and no Sarah fucking Connor!

So we're making one more move. One more plea to Warner Brothers. One more show of fan support for The Sarah Connor Chronicles. And we're doing it where industry and fandom converge: Comic Con San Diego. We're going to do a 3-day run of the billboard there, as well as hand out stickers and other TSCC promo goodies to con goers. You can read all about it at savethescc.

This means we need money, of course. I know you're all tired of reaching into your pockets, but this is the last time I'll ask for campaign donations. After this, we'll let the powers that be do their thing and we'll turn our attention to planning a TSCC con.

Just to run the billboard at Comic Con, we need $2475. Everything over and above that will go toward getting merchandise printed up for handing out. Please help with whatever amount you can. As an incentive, everyone who donates $25 or more will get a set of Cameron's 'no' 'FA' 'te' buttons (we'll be getting those made after the donation drive is done, so it'll be a few weeks before they're sent out).

Please spread the word far and wide. We need everyone's help for this final push! There is no fate but what we make.

She alive, ALIVE! :D

Flu free and running on all cylinders again I hope.

I'm a slacker, I never gave to the other campaigns even though I did think they were worthy and I did support them, I just didn't think they would come to anything.

This time I have given $100, not because I think we can win, but because I think we should at least “try” to win anyway, go down swinging; And if we can take a few of the WB execs with us, (If only to shame them) all the better!

Comic con is the best battle field we are going to get, a place where geeks everywhere gather, and wherever geeks gather, the people who hunt them also gather, the media and network execs.
If we can't make a noise there, the proverbial “shot heard around the world,” we might as well give up now, but it's worth a try.

So go get em Roxy!

That's for your donation :)

Warner Brothers knows made money on s2 DVD sales. The Terminator rights are settled. So our goal now is just to make sure they know the fans still want more TSCC. We don't want them thinking a year has gone by and we've all forgotten or don't care anymore.

I agree that Comic Con is an excellent battle ground. Just me sticking stickers on Fox's booth last year got WB's attention, so a billboard rolling all over the area and con goers wearing buttons and stickers and tattoos and carrying tote bags with a TSCC message should make a good statement and grab their attention again. And I guess time WB booth will be a target for stickering:D

I don't actually have any plans to be there myself. It cost a fortune for me to go last year and I wasn't going to go again until maybe next year. So I've got no Comic Con tickets and no hotel reservation. But now that we've decided to do all this I'm having second thoughts. I may end up flying out to San Diego for it afterall. Whether I go or not, though, Aelysian and some of her friends will be there to hand out the merch to the masses. And the billboard will roll!

Thanks for the Merit badge, but I'm now wondering if you can reach your goal, I've been monitoring both The Red and the Blue Wiki and there has been a decidedly depressing lack of interest.

Since the show has go off the air there has been a mass exodus of the fan base, and the remaining few are despondent and defeatist for the most part.

I blame a lack of leadership from the show-runners, unlike Jericho's show-runners who have been actively campaigning with the fans, ours run up the white flag the moment the show was not coming back.

Maybe an article on IO9 would help put the word out, a “One Last Push For Victory!” speech to rally the troops as it were.
I wonder if they'd run it?

Contacting Io9 is a good idea. They did an article about the mobile billboard last Sept so maybe we could ask them to mention the Comic Con plans. It's worth a shot.

It's sad how the wiki(s) has become such a pit of despair. I agree that a lack of moral support from the inside has been part of the problem. Thomas is the only one who even publicly acknowledged the fan's efforts. Other than that, we've only had some quiet, behind-the-scenes cheerleading.

They'll find the money. Everything they need. Every penny. They'll get their miracle. I know because it's written in blood on my basement wall.

As for reaching our goal, we're already there. Well, we've got enough to run the billboard and hand out stickers anyway. With private donations from savethescc staff and others we have about $1500 more than what you see on the widget. So don't worry - operation Comic Con is already a go regardless of how apathetic the wiki is.

We're still hoping to raise more over the next two weeks so we can actually get some stuff printed up to hand out though. We'll just do as much as we can with whatever money we end up with.

Girlie, have I told you today that I love you? ;-)

Fandom needs more Roxys.

No, you hadn't told me that today and I've been waiting. Patiently even.

Funny you should mention more Roxys because it just so happens that I ordered a cloning machine off ebay today. I sure hope it works.
