Sound checking tracks and pulling some final video clips for the Awesome Jamz Party. (Everyone’s there for some Wemma action, right?)
Speaking of the Jamz Party, here’s the deal:
There will be music, slideshows, and videos. While the media show is more formal, kind of like a movie date with everyone, the jamz party is about hanging out, singing along, and dancing if you feel so inclined.
Just a few things on the list include:
- a FaberryCon slideshow (yes, it’s all about us!)
- a Lea and Dianna slideshow (and a chance to play Real or Manip!)
- videos of our favorite ladies
- 90’s tracks
- 80’s remixes
- mega mashups
- and more!
So, if you’re not a dancer, know that we’re thinking of you, as well.
It’s going to be a lot of fun and we hope to see you there!

Things to bring with you on the tour:
You absolutely want a good pair of running or jogging shoes for this. I’ve done it in Converse and I DO NOT RECOMMEND. You WILL have blisters by the end of the day if you don’t have the proper footwear.
Water bottle! It’s important to stay hydrated.
Money. We’re making a stop at FAO Schwarz and the tour wraps up at Times Square.
Your charming personality and great sense of humor. :D
If you’re meeting us at Penn Station:
Please wait for us outside the NJ Transit terminal, which is located by the 7th Avenue entrance, across from the Duane Reade drugstore.
(NOTE: “Outside” the terminal is still inside Penn. So you will be either dry or air conditioned, whatever the weather brings).
In case the weather is less than perfect:
I don’t think we’ll get more than a drizzle, or at worst sporadic bouts of small rain patches. Bring a light rain jacket, just in case. There will be an option of picking up a $5 umbrella if it really is raining. Most of our stops have places to wait out the weather if that is necessary, but I don’t think it will be.
That’s right, folks — FaberryCon North is HERE!!
To keep up with all the con happenings, be sure to follow out two Twitter accounts:
- @FaberryConNorth - This is where we’ll post official updates and news, especially if there are any delays / schedule changes or room # announcements.
- @FaberryConLive - Our staff will live blog the con, so tune in for funny quotes and updates on our shenanigans!
For those of you not attending, please consider purchasing a Supporting Membership to help the con. You’ll get to watch up to 9 hours of video footage from the con and get the closest thing to a live experience there is without actually being there!
If you’re attending and you need to reach the staff with any concerns or questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can’t find us.
SEE YOU SOON!! :-D
Thanks to xactodreams, our website is now more user-friendly than ever! Previously, the drop-down menus were not accessible on phones, but we’re excited to say that has now been fixed. Hooray!
Kayla also built an incredible map for the NYC fic tour that we’ll be using live at North for the pre-con excursion. Go check out the great sites we’ll visit!
So, we’ve invented this crazy new game for FaberryCon North that’s part fic battle, part round-robin. It’s going to be super fun and interactive and we are excited.
For part of this, we need some help from all y’all to suggest some opening and closing lines for these fics. To do this, please go to the FaberryCon message boards and make your suggestions.
PSA for all FaberryCon North attendees:
If you have plans to go out into NYC for any evening activities (particularly that Thursday night before the con starts), please be aware that the NJ Transit trains (as in the train that connects you from NY Penn station to our hotel station) stop running…
Here’s a quick video I put together about a documentary that’s going to be filmed at FaberryCon North this summer. Thanks for watching :)
(interview questions link here)
One of our terrific attendees of West and North, Alex, is going to be filming a documentary at the con! She’d love to have your participation, if you’re willing. This is not an official con project — it’s her own — but we support it 100%. She’ll be filming interviews throughout the con.
Registration to attend FaberryCon North ends in one week (July 13th)! If you’ve been waiting, now is the time!
You also have one more week to submit a payment to attend, if you are not yet paid in full. Please contact us if this is going to be a problem so we can work something out and not have to cancel your reg. Thanks!
I am very excited to announce the line up for FaberryCon North’s Author Q+R panel:And our returning players who will be answering audience questions during our open forum:I know, right?
