Saturday and Sunday: LFCC days. It was pretty great, actually. I had never been to a convention before, so I basically kept stumbling through Earl's Court, careful not to lose the others and just being generally impressed by how many people there were. Still, the actual con-part of the whole thing actually started off with a bit of a shock: Friday night we found out that Torri had canceled and wouldn't be there. I was already half asleep in my bunk bed back in the Hostel Of Creaky Floor Boards when [livejournal.com profile] calleigh_j texted me and told me about it. Stayed up until 2 am or so with [livejournal.com profile] ankareeda after that, talking about how LFCC seems to be cursed. But when we got there the next day it was actually really fun all the same.

And we met Andee Frizell, the Wraith Queen(s), who liked that we were a multinational group who had met over the internet and took a picture of us. Which was cool.

I had another small fangirl moment when I ran into K9.

There were people in costumes and one of them was a very convincing Jack Sparrow. Seriously, that guy was awesome! He walked like Jack, he talked like Jack...he was really cool.

Those pics are a bit blurry, but [livejournal.com profile] sazzat found him on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14Qf9UR5jCM - really, check this out. He's amazing.

I guess the most fun part of the weekend was really to be hanging out with flisters. Of all the cool people that were at the con, they were the most amazing and even if no one else had been there, it would still have been fun.

Those are the girls with whom I spent almost every waking minute while in London. They're all really cool and I miss them so much!

Here's a better one that I stole from [livejournal.com profile] sazzat. I hope she doesn't mind. She had someone take a photo of all of us with her camera. At least almost all of us, some people are missing. But I still love this picture. From left to right: [livejournal.com profile] graveyard_cat, [livejournal.com profile] sazzat, [livejournal.com profile] pixilove66, [livejournal.com profile] oparu, [livejournal.com profile] speckleberry, [livejournal.com profile] cnnjunky (top), [livejournal.com profile] calleigh_j, me ([livejournal.com profile] alianne), [livejournal.com profile] ankareeda (front)

We went to the talk with Nana Visitor and Louise Fletcher (Star Trek). It was good, except we had someone with a ginormous head in front of us and couldn't really see anything. We couldn't really hear anything either. BUT we have been in the same room with Major Kira and Kai Winn. Yay.

We all invaded Speckles and Tinie's hotel room at night and talked. Actually, we pretty much did that all the time. :)

Sunday

Waiting for Andee's talk:

We then went to Andee Frizzell's talk. She's awesome. :) And she talks a lot, and she moves a lot, which was the reason I have mostly blurry pictures of her. She kept walking out of them. :P Anyways, here are a few:



























Ianto from Torchwood was there! He sat next to Andee at the autograph tables on Sunday and I didn't get a good picture of him, but you can see him in this one:





He's the dude in the blue and white shirt. He kept standing up and hugging people all the time. He's adorable.

We talked to Andee again at her autograph table later and gave her this:





She said it was like her high school yearbook. *lol* She said lots of things worth quoting, but I don't really remember. [livejournal.com profile] calleigh_j has a list. :P
And those are my fingers holding up the cardboard. *lol* Stole the picture from Speckles, hope she doesn't mind. I didn't have one.


I had another almost fangirl moment when some guys from Heroes walked right past us. I didn't even notice at first. There were just some people who sort of looked familiar and I kept thinking I must have seen them somewhere, until I realized that one of them was freakin' Milo Ventmiglia. I had a picture taken later with him and Adrian Pasdar (THE PETRELLI BROTHERS!), but I don't have it yet since their photo op was too late on Sunday and they didn't get the pictures printed fast enough. I left my address and hope it will arrive soon. Also, we learned all about queuing that day. There were lots and lots of queues. Probably because of the Heroes people and Patrick Stewart, whom I didn't see since I was running out of money.

That was the weekend. I'm sure I forgot lots of stuff. So. Bottom line: London is love. LFCC was fun. Andee Frizzell is made of awesome. Flisters are amazing. Trip to London = Best Thing EVER.

We have mostly ordinary cafes selling take away coffee. And there's Coffee Culture and World Coffee, but they're expensive. Can't think of any others.

But getting coffee before going to class is the First Rule Of Survival when you're a student. *g*

The Jack Sparrow guy was amazing. :)

I didn't get to meet Ianto, I was too shy. *hides* But we were sitting only a few feet away from him while we were waiting for Andee Frizzell to come back to her autograph table, so I got to look at him a lot. He's really cute. :)

Awwwww, that's okay. I'm shy too and he is sooooo hot though. On the torchwood community, someone showed a picture of him at the convention. *drools thinking about it* Hehee.

He's really kind of hot. Fandom is full of pretty people. :)

Oh, on what community, if I may ask? I don't really know any torchwood communities yet. It's a relatively new fandom for me. :)

It was great, wasn't it? I had so much fun. I think we were a really good group of people. It's so much fun to talk to people about fandom things face to face. Usually you can't do that with rl people. But now we all are rl friends, sort of, so YAY. *g*

I cannot believe this, but in the picture of you and [livejournal.com profile] sazzat, there is girl sat behind you with blonde curly hair. That's my friend Emma! I am literally sat right behind you in that photograph, you can just see part of my white shirt.

I met Ianto on Saturday, and when I got my photo with him, he put his arm around me. I think that nearly killed me. Though now quite as much as in the Petrelli photoshoot on Sunday when I realised Adrian had his hand on my back. I am such a pathetic fangirl.

*cracks up* You were sitting behind me all the time? Dude...that's just awesome. Heh. :D :D

Oh, I'm a pathetic fangirl too when it comes to the Petrelli brothers. When I walked up to them Milo smiled and said "Hi" in that deep, raspy voice and my knees got a little shaky, actually. *g* They're both so absolutely hot! :D

Thanks, sweetie. :)

It wasn't that bad that she wasn't there, in the end. At least she was working (filming CSI) and that's what we all want, so no complaining from my side (not much at least). London is really wonderful, though.

Pictures! *squeeeee*

I've looked for a flight to Manchester, and there all around 200 Euro from Leipzig with Lufthansa, that's pretty awesome. :D And I also found a really great hostel, it's just 1,5 km far away from the Con location and it looks really, really good.

Now we just need Torri there. :P

It's gonna be even cheaper, though, because Ellie already said we can all stay at her uni house, so no hostel. :D :D
