Fic Fundraiser Reminder!
Hey folks! Just a reminder that you have about 7 more weeks to buy your very own fic from one of our fantastic authors to support FaberryCon!
They’re only $10 each, and you can shop our listing for someone terrific to write just the fic you have in mind! Really, sky’s the limit. And because they’ll be written by the end of the year, they make terrific Hanukkah or Christmas gifts for a friend or girlfriend!
So go check out our website for all the info and authors, and get those prompts rolling!
jarrow and kabensi are going to Vegas, and you’re invited!
With FaberryCon North so far away, we want to get together in the interim to hang out and be awesome in the near future. So, what better place than Las Vegas? We’ll be there Friday, February 14th to Tuesday, February 18th.
Anyone in the FaberryCon community is invited — past attendees, supporters, future attendees, or even just friends. This isn’t an official convention event (or even anything resembling a con), just a bunch of folks getting together to hit the big city, do some gambling, and enjoy each other’s company. There’s no registration or membership fees; you just show up and hang out with us. And yes, it’s on Valentine’s weekend, the anniversary of FaberryCon East :-)
kabensi is in charge of this little soiree. If you want in, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there!
1 year of FaberryCon!
So, it turns out today is the 1-year anniversary of this Tumblr :-D
That means it’s been one year since I officially put myself out there — scared, lonely, and unknown — and said, hey, let’s do a thing. And we did. (TWICE.)
This account now has 700 followers, including the 200+ of you who have joined us in an official capacity as attendees and supporters of FaberryCon. Our family keeps getting bigger all the time. This experience has been better than I ever dreamed it could be, and we’re far from over yet.
So, thank you. Thank you for believing in this ship and in this con and in me. You have changed my life, and I know my co-captain kabensi feels the same way.
Here’s to us, here’s to an amazing year of FaberryCon, and here’s to many more ahead.
FaberryCon North will be July 25-27, 2014!**
We’re so pleased that so many of you will be able to join us next summer (and have time to get your money saved up!) Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll to help us confirm it was the right decision to wait.
**There is a strong chance we’ll extend the con to 4 days officially, with programming on Thursday the 24th, to allow for more unstructured hangout time throughout the weekend. We’ll keep you posted as this develops.
The location, however, is yet to be determined. We need 3-6 volunteers to be on the North Location Committee! Details:
More discussion of dates for North!
Thanks to all of you who responded to this first poll about dates! We’ve been able to narrow down the current options from six to two, one in April and one in July.
If you are considering coming to FaberryCon North, please go fill out our second poll about dates. This might be what determines it!
There are many considerations at play here. Some elaboration:
Today is the last day to register for a Supporting Membership to FaberryCon West!
We’re especially proud to be connecting and representing Faberry fans all over the world. We currently have 62 fantastic Supporting Members in 18 countries outside the US!
How cool is that?! There’s more swag and DVDs available, and we’d love for you to be a part of all the fun. Again, it’s just $25 in the US ($5 more internationally), and the funds go directly toward covering FaberryCon’s costs. (Payment is technically due today, but we can hold your package until you pay, as needed, if you want to just submit your reg before the deadline.)
Get in on the goodness! Register now while you still can!
Want to see what happened at FaberryCon West? Now you can!
Here’s your sneak peek of what you’ll get if you purchase a Supporting Membership (with a loaded DVD and lots of swag!) for only $25 US / $30 international. I’ve extended the registration/payment date to Monday, August 19th to give you a little extra time to send in your funds. Thanks for supporting FaberryCon! Please spread the word!
FaberryCon has donated $100 in Cory Monteith’s memory to one of his charities, the Project Limelight Society. We hope that it will help bring children one step closer to achieving their artistic dreams. Thank you to the generous attendees of FaberryCon West for making this possible.
1) We have created a poll to help narrow down possible dates for FaberryCon North. This is NOT the only time to vote, it’s still very early, etc etc. But do let us know your thoughts if you’re hoping to come to North.
2) Be sure you’re following the FaberryCon Works tumblr, where we’re posting a lot of naughty things created at West!
3) Please try to get all pictures and video from West submitted to us (email@example.com) by tomorrow if possible! If you need more time, please let us know right away. We have over 150 DVDs to bun and don’t want to miss anything!
Media Show links!
A highlight of FaberryCon is the Media Show, a collection of scenes, songs, and vids from Glee itself and the very talented fandom. Here are links to the fanvids featured in the Media Show for West! Please leave the vidders feedback if you enjoy their work! Thank you.
