A: Thomas Dekker!!!!

Q: What awesome guest was announced for No Fate Convention?

Um wow. Has it really been over three months since I last posted?! I have plenty of excuses, I assure you, but I'm going to assume that there's no one visiting my LJ anymore to tell these excuses to. On the off chance anyone does see this post, let me share the exciting news (in case, y'know, you didn't quite get it from the intro or anywhere else on the internets where it's been shouted out).

----> Thomas Dekker is officially a guest for No Fate Con! <---

Oh seriously?! 
Ya, seriously!

As you know, I've been kinda busy with this con thing lo these recent months. I hope it's all worth it in the end because throwing myself this far into a fandom has kind of prevented me from enjoying any others. I'm not sure I would anyway, though. There are plenty of shows I'm currently watching and liking and a few I'm even loving, but still not a single one that grabs me the way The Sarah Connor Chronicles did. It remains my favorite show and planning a con for it is exciting, exhausting, exhilarating, frustrating, thrilling, stressful — you can't imagine the roller coaster ride. You just can't. 

But here's the thing: I love TSCC and I love conventions. If I can have those two things combined, it'll be pretty fucking awesome. And I guess that's what this really comes down to. I want to stand in a ballroom full of fellow fans and see Thomas Dekker on stage, talking about playing John Connor — about the turbulent relationship with Sarah, about the confused feelings for Cameron, about taking a blind leap into the future. I want to hear stories about long days on set and the creative process that went into it all. I want to laugh. I want to be enthralled. I want to cry over how much I miss that show. And I want to share all that with those who've loved TSCC as much as I have.

I want to see everyone else from the show there too, of course, but it's one step at a time on this journey and this is Thomas Dekker day :)

So get excited with me and go register for No Fate Con!

That is AWESOME! \o/ *twirls you*

(And of course there's at least someone watching your LJ. I'm kind of an LJ dinosaur. :P)

Maybe that's what Terra Nova is lacking... an LJ dinosaur :P
Well that and good writing.

I've got a lifetime account, so despite my distractions and spotty posting of late, I think I'll always return to LJ. And when this convention is done I might even delve further into other shows again. But for now, it's still TSCC for me and No fate Con.

Thanks for cheering it on :)

little bit o' this, little bit o' that
User sabaceanbabe referenced to your post from little bit o' this, little bit o' that saying: [...] Chronicles might be interested to know that Thomas Dekker has been signed up for the No Fate con [...]

That's brilliant! I'm still hoping to come, but won't know til early next year. (It would cost me a couple of grand in planes etc).

I know travel can be a huge expense (I'll be flying from the east coast), but I really hope you can come :)

That's awesome that your were able to score a big-name guest for the con.

There's pretty much no chance that I could ever attend, but I'll be rooting for you all.

Thanks! We'll take all the rooting and cheering we can get.

There's pretty much no chance that I could ever attend

So you're saying there's a chance?

Sorry, not unless I have a sudden career change. There's no way I could go all the way down to California and back with my work schedule, and I was already planning to use my one week of vacation to see my family at Thanksgiving.

I am happy for you, of all the cast you could get at least you got the one who loves to talk the most so it should be fun and informative.

Way to go Roxy! :)

Yeah, Thomas is a great convention guest. I saw him on a few panels at Dragon*Con in 2009 and he was really fun. I'm thrilled to have him for No fate Con :)

Many congrats on ensnaring the Dekker :-) I'm hoping you're still managing to get some sleep amidst all this planning! x

My sleep patterns have only gotten worse with the stresses of convention planning. Maybe when No Fate Con is over, I might finally start sleeping like a normal person. A girl can dream, right?
