So, lubricus was amazing and now we can all go back to our regular lives with ALL THE SAD. I know some of you reading this have never been to a convention or a fandom meetup and all I can tell you is that if you ever have the opportunity, you should DO IT. There is something so incredible about hanging out with people who "get" you and this wonderful, bizarre, outwardly-strange world of fandom that we inhabit. There is nothing quite like dropping your usual cautious filters and blurting out things you might never dare say in your day-to-day life. (I say might because some of us are "filters, what filters?") There is something indescribable about laughing until you hurt, talking about writing and art and fandom, discussing the strange juxtaposition of jobs, significant others, children, and whatever drives us to fandom and sticks some of us there like glue. There is nothing like putting a name to a face, and to making connections where you never expected to make them.

I miss you guys. :(
