Conference write-up!!

So as always, PCA was the best!! I got to hang with friends, I saw a screening of Interview with the Vampire for the first time in at least fifteen years (hush, it was my ~favorite~ movie when I was thirteen, I was such a precocious little pseudo-goth, and can I just say how lovely it is that the stuff you cherished when you were young holds up? Because it so did, and I congratulate bb!me on her *excellent* taste!), I gave a paper that went well, spoke on two round tables that went very well indeed (I chaired one on "Shame, Gender, and Cultural Capital: The Problems of Reading Fanfiction" and a woman later said that, as far as she was concerned, it was worth the price of admission to the conference for that!), and I got tapped to read at a Fanfiction Caucus (I read Bucky Barnes for a Stucky fic and Thor for a Thorki fic). Also I got several books I had long coveted on sale in the book room!!!

Wednesday I'm headed out again, this time for ASECS in Pittsburgh; I'm kind of anxious because I won't have any friends there to hang out with, but I'm looking on the bright side: I can take some stuff with me and maybe get some work done, and also, I can retreat to my room to be by myself if things get overwhelming. So! Optimism!
