I've been trying valiantly to a) get rid of some clutter and b) unpack the last of my random boxes. I'm failing miserably at the former and succeeding somewhat at the latter. In unpacking a box that I thought was only comics, I discovered my "missing-presumed-gone" Buffy graphic novels, and some zines I had that used to belong to [livejournal.com profile] lucylooo.  I wasn't really ready to read the zines at the time, and for some reason I was convinced one of them was entirely about Space: Above and Beyond, which I really only know the title of and not much else.

That said, I finally looked at the aforementioned zine and noticed it was, in fact, a multi-fandom zine, and that the last fandom listed was X Force (no dash).  To which I tilted my head, and said out loud to nobody, "wait, my X-Force?"  and ended up reading a Shatterstar/Cable story, with some UST Shatterstar/Rictor floating around in the background.  It was quality, classic Shatterstar, and very firmly set in canon. 

I'm actually sorry I missed the heyday of zines.  Most of them, admittedly, I couldn't have purchased, being under-aged at the time, but still!  I find them very neat.  I console myself with the knowledge that while I missed the zine thing, I used to buy fansubs on VHS from a guy in a black civic, outside a donut shop, in the sketchiest part of Scarborough ('burb of Toronto).  Fannish history is something I love very much.  

Somewhat fandom related, I think I've finally settled on my cons for this year:
  1. Ottawa Comic Con (Ottawa, ON)
  2. Anime North (Toronto, ON)
  3. Otakon (Baltimore, MD)
  4. Otakuthon (Montreal, QC)
  5. Fan Expo (Toronto, ON) -- this one is a maybe, I wish it wasn't run the way it is
I still have a hearty list from the Snowflake Challenge, so one of those might sneak in this year, too.  I always stare at NYCC enviously.

We should really get the old band back together for NYCC one of these years.

I was just going to say--if you come down for NYCC and I'm still on this coast (likely), I would totally come up to meet you.

*headslap* Even BETTER--I missed the comment about Otakon! And that's about half an hour away. So that's definitely a date, lady. (I probably won't go to the show, but I hope you are amenable to being stolen for dinner. :)

Tripod site deleted???

Hello fellow Canadian!

From what I hear you weren't able to get to the local con. You don't happen to live in Nova Scotia, do you? I think Halifax had a local sci-fi con there not too long ago. Good or bad, you got caught up on your reading. My dad was cleaning out the basement of the old house last week and found my stash of Gold Key comics all chewed to ribbons by mice, poly-bagged issues and all. I just about had a stroke!

Speaking of strokes (and this isn't a Peter David poorly-tasted pun) I went to visit my FAVORITE site yesterday and found it permanently deleted: http://gaffaa.tripod.com/ "Tangerine's Dream- The Fan-Fiction of Tangerine". Say it isn't so!!! You had three of my absolute best X-Force tearjerkers of all time stored there (I remember one titled Libertad, but- hell, it's past 3 in the morning and my memory sucks), as well as some spectacular short stories. Please tell me that they are posted elsewhere and not just floating in your hard drive. At the very least I'd love it if you posted them on AO3 so I can bookmark them. Ricstar fanfiction is rare enough and your writing is what inspired me to start writing my own based on the duo. If you have any links to share, it would be very much appreciated!

Warmest regards,

Darke Angelus (Blomidon, Nova Scotia)
