Setsucon Recap, Part 1?

So let me briefly mention a list of things that went wrong for me at Setsucon.

  • I was unable to book at the Penn Stater due to lack of commitment from travelling companions
  • My driving directions flew away as I tried to pack
  • Retrieving said directions cost me my scarf
  • My car’s battery died on Sunday, just as I was trying to get to a panel
  • A jumper cable I had in case my battery died frayed off
  • Various counter-progamming battles that I likely lost on
  • Tempermental laptop cloning
  • Accidentally calling someone “Kara”

So here’s a list of things that actually went right

  • Super courteous staff
  • Super accommodating staff
  • Bee! :O
  • Name That Tune becoming more inclusive despite a low turnout
  • A reg line that almost Ouroboros’d itself
  • #TakeYourShippoToSetsuconDay
  • Singing along during A Real History of Fake Singers
  • That moment in A Real History of Fake Singers when you realize that you’re cosplaying what they’re talking about.
  • Wizardmon! D:
  • Knowing exactly what I was getting into when I mentioned Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition
  • Meeting a lot of new and awesome people
  • Gosei Knight! x3
  • The Creamery
  • Spreading the gospel of MelloPanther and OTDT
  • Running low on business cards for the above

All in all, I’d say it was a net positive weekend and I’d love to go back.  In spite of everything that happened, I’ve been doing this for so long that I’ve built up sort of a resilience and ability to adapt to when things go pear-shaped.  Mean old State College didn’t get the best of me no matter how hard it tried, and I’ll just be back stronger and better for the next time.

As of right now, it looks like MP will be making its next date in April, but of course, there’s always the chance that things change.  Watch this space for more :3
