Starfury Convention: T3


Hi all those who read my Journal.

 These last few days I've been in a fancy 5 star hotel attending the latest Starfury event for Sarah Connor Chronicles and Chuck. T3.

Originally, this was supposed to have Summer Glau and Vik Sahay. Alas they both cancelled. So, along with Thomas Decker and Ryan McPartlin...Mark Christopher Lawrence and Melinda Clarke took their places. Then Melinda Clarke cancelled but we got the awesome Julia Ling!!  

I was very disappointed that Summer couldn't make it...as I had gotten my Serenity poster out of the frame ready for her to sign. But I'm not angry or anything...there will be another time to get my completed Rayne signatures. I hope that whatever new project Summer is working on now...that it will be her big break...like Castle for Nate and Chuck for Adam. She really deserves it! 

So to replace Summer..we had the lovely Stephanie Jacobson...Jesse in TSCC. She was also in BSG:Razor and Farscape. :) Lovely lass.

It was a VERY awesome line-up.

The talks and events were fantastic. The parties were cool, though not many people entered the fancy dress competition. I think a lot of the usual people had done previous cons for that and were taking a break. But that's okay.  I met all my friends from last year and made some new ones. I met a lass who I had commented months ago about her photo with AB. Oh BTW...this girl has met Jared, Jensen AND Mischa. She's a Dean fan...but loves Jared more than Jenson! I'm so jealous!  The gal is a VERY skilled artist! You should see her drawings of the supernatural brothers and of Thomas Decker. Amazing! She is gonna go far!  She's on DA...I'll have to fish out her user name. Ladykrpytonite or something. :) Brilliant artist...I kid you not!  

The tmain things I wannid to mention was the following. I actually managed to ask Ryan "Captain Awesome" McPartlin a question. I asked him what he thought the series would have been like if Awesome had been the bad guy. He loved that question and gave a brilliant answer...for he described himself being exactly like [info]goddessofbirth "Through a Glass, Darkly" fic. I told him about it and he said that one day he would love to read it.  Yesterday...after the closing ceremony...I managed to bump into him and he gave me a big hug and we knocked fists together before having another lovely chat, about how great the weekend was and about Awesome possibily going bad. I can't recall exactly, so don't quote me...but I think he said something about approving of Casey looking after Ellie if Devon did go bad. :) I did have a little drink in me and I was still hyped up that I was talking to him! So there ya go G! Ryan loves the idea of your Evil!Devon! 

A friend of mine got pictures of me asking the question and him answering. She will email me them later in the week! 

Then my friend got the bestest luck ever. She won in the raffle for the meet and greets. She got one ticket to meet Thomas Decker and she got three tickets to meet Julia Ling and Mark Christopher. She gave the two spares to me and my niece Faye! We were so fortunate!  Julia sat right next to my niece and WOW! It was amazing to be able to casually talk to both of them and ask questions without the rest of the attendees. There were some others...just not hundreds upon hundreds.

I spoke to Julia who is the most adorable and wonderful woman ever! XD I also explained about   [info]goddessofbirth   fic (again) about Anna becoming a spy thanks to Casey! (The Hibachi Chef one!) She LOVED it. I think she mentioned she heard about it before..but we just got talking and everyone else in the room seemed to like that idea as well. The idea of a Casey and Anna mentor thing, which I mentioned in mine fic as well...had her so wonderfully hyped!  So G...Julia really wants to know more about it!! (sorry if that's too much pressure, but how could I not mention that?!) She really does love it.

Got to talk to Mark about Big Mike. He wants to have more scenes in Season 5...and have them with Morgan's mum. We discussed how the wedding would go and basically what would happen if Big Mike got caught up in the spy side of things! Told him about my story where Big mike tries to find out Casey's Birthday...and it made him smile.

This has been a wonderful weekend. Got a group photo of Ryan, Julia and Mark with me..and signed and I am now officially known by the other con goers as JELLIE. :) I don't think many of them know my real name...I'm just introduced as Jellie or she who really likes Casey and Ellie. :) 

I will be posting some of my pictures up on my facebook...i still can't figure how to do so on here yet...but hopefully they might provide some funnies. T4 next year will be a definate must...especially if none of the proposed guests cancel.

Adam Baldwin is down to attend. WHOOOOOO!! And none other than mr Krinsky AND Sahay! JEFFSTER coming to london, ya'll!! Not missing out on that!! I hope that Summer might be able to make it...then it will be a Rayne fest for sure! OH CRAP it just occurred to me..how great would it be if both Summer and Sarah turned up at T4 with Adam?!??!?! I would die and go to heaven for sure.

Anyways....that's enough for now. I'm going to finally chill. I'm glad to be back my friends. Missed you all

I had to mention your work to them G! Had to! :)

Ahh..yes the Julia Ling site! I remember now...I knew she had read it somewhere. But the fact that the other twenty people in the room liked the idea, including her and Mark...just made me so happy for you! Had to tell you!

Oh...yeah you're going to dragon*con!! I'm so jealous of you!!! ;) You'll have a blast I know it! Xxx

OMG, thanks for sharing. How cool that you got to talk to Ryan McPartlin. I totally agree that it would have been better for his character and for Adam's character if Devon were bad. SO much more for both of them to do. And, I can only hope that he was hinting about "Casey looking after Ellie if Devon went bad or away." THAT would rock. Also, how cool that Julia had read the Hibachi Chef fic.

It sounds like you had a great time. I've never been to one before (nobody to go with in San Fran. as hubby will have none of it.) I think it would be fun to hook up with a bunch of fans with similar tastes and just have fun. However, I think I've said this before, "if" I ever met Adam, I'd probably pass out and require medical attention. Or I'd just forget to talk and stand there all stupified. So, probably nothing good would come of it. At least you're having fun. ;)

:) Ryan would have loved to have been bad. He said that Awesome could be so evil yet remain his jocky awesome self...like giving someone a noogie! LOL :)

Lass...if you were to ever meet Adam, I can assure you that he would be an utter gentleman. I was frozen to the spot and could barely talk or breathe when I first met him. But he was wonderful. One day it will happen for you. One day...if you make it happen! Don't miss up on the opportunity.

:)

How very cool, A, that you were able to meet and talk with so many of our favorite Chuck people again this year! And to even get a nice sit-down with Julia and Mark!

I love best that Devon would be okay with Casey looking out for Ellie if it turned out he were bad, lol.

I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time! And I will definitely be looking at facebook for your pictures!!

I know! I feel so privileged! And next year, Adam again AND JEFFSTER?! If that's possible I'm so gettin' something for you...I know how much you love them!

I just hope Summer and Sarah will be there along with Adam. How freakin sweet would that be?!??!? XD

I will get the photos up as soon as I find the cable for my camera! lol

I have an unnatural affinity for the music duo known as the Jeffster, it's true, lol.

That would be sooo awesome next year! Hoping that everything goes according to plan. Definitely keeping my fingers crossed for you, A!!

B.!!! I am so pleased that you had such a marvelous, well-deserved good time.

Thanks for sharing your adventures with us, allowing us to live vicariously.

From all I've seen and heard, Ryan McPartlin is a real stand up dude. Thank you for confirming that.

Julia ling also sounds incredibly wonderful and sweet and MCL sounds like great fun to hang out with as well.

Thanks again for sharing. I loved reading about your adventures.

Ryan is wonderful!

I forgot to mention that in the talks, Ryan wanted us all to sing happy birthday for his son. He was 2 and he filmed us singing so he had proof on what he was doing for his son's second. It was adorable!

Damn! also forgot to mention that he looked at the photo I had with him and the others and he said "I'm really tall there."

I mentioned that he was about the same height as Adam. He shook his head.

"Don't let him hear you say that. He's adamant that he's the tallest out of all of us. We argue about it alot." :)

They were all wonderful. They really are! :)

I had the mental image of Ryan, Zach and Adam standing up against the wall to measure their heights! Hee...it would be fascinating to see their "bantering"

Ryan also mentioned in the talk about Josh. He said that he called Josh short and Josh's reply was "I'm not short! I'm working with giants!"

lol
