Fandom is the gift that keeps on giving. <3  
You guys!

YOU GUYS!

I'm so hard trying not to go call CAPS LOCKY on you, but this deserves all the cap locks in the world. Like, if there's a good moment to use caps locks this is it!!1!!

Okay, breath capi, breath! ^^

You know Leviosa, right? Well, back before Grace went to it I asked her sort of joking sort of serious if she could please take a notebook or something and ask people to sing it so she could send it to me, because the truth is, if I would have had the chance to go, I would absolutely walked around with a notebook asking all the amazing people there so sign it and taking photos (speaking of that, you people did not take enough photos, for the next Con, I'm going to self-proclaimed the Colin Creevey of the event!) and basically make a nuisance of myself. So I asked her if it wasn't too much trouble, if she remembered, if she could and mostly if she wanted to, to do that for me. She, lovely, amazing Grace that she is, said yes.

Then after Leviosa she told me she had something for me and she was going to send it soon.

AND TODAY IT ARRIVED.

And ohmygod, it's a Harry Potter postcard colouring book and—!!!!—she got me some of those signatures I've been dreaming about. :D

And the things they wrote. ♥_♥

You have to believe me when I say, happy tears, so much happy tears reading those amazing, lovely messages they wrote for me, all the hugs and the heart drawings (There's a Snape as well!) and greetings and everything.

There were messages from zeitgeistic, akatnamedeaster, fantasyfiend09, alisanne, gracerene, sassy_cissa, vaysh, noeon, oceaxe, blithelybonny, amorette, dysonrules, femmequixotic, writcraft, khalulu, dicta_contrion, piratesmile331, otakuwench, oldenuf2nb, sesheta_66, cassie_black12 and oakstone730.

Thank you so much, all of you, for taking that moment from all the awesome time you were having to write something for me. You have no idea what this means to me. This little book now lives in my heart. Also in my collection, but you know, mostly in my heart. <3

And then, the cherry on top, I also received some HP stamps!!!! I've been coveting those since they came out thinking I'd never get a chance to have them and now they are here as well. \o/ Apparently there was a raffle and the lovely, generous winner gifted them to me. THANK YOU! *strokes stamps gently*

And of course I went and take pictures! Because, obviously, I had to. ^^

Smooching my book. :D

Right... showing the book. ^^

STAMPS!

I'm just over the moon.

Being part of fandom with all you, every single one of you out there, it's just the best thing in the world. This might sound silly, but sometimes when I'm going through a rough time in RL or at work or whatever coming here just fills me with so much positive energy, it gives me strength, knowing you're out there, knowing you're sharing your talent and love with me, and we're part of this crazy world together, it just makes everything better you know?

Just, all you, thank you for being out there. <33

Ahhhh!!! That's so amazing!

I was so sad to have to pass on Leviosa this year. I'd already decided on 3-4 other cons to attend (in my own city) and adding an out-of-state con to that pile wasn't going to agree with my bank account.

When there is another HP convention though ... I'm totally going to have to commit to doing it and I'd totally be Dennis Creevey, following after you and adding to the nuisance in all the documenting glory.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 17th, 2016 09:49 pm (UTC)
Yes! We'll absolutely be the Creevy brothers! They need us, you know. ;)

Back after Leviosa I heard there might be a leviosa again in 2018. I'm hopeful!

Gosh, I remember you saying about this and I'm so happy it worked out and FULL KUDOS to gracerene for making it happen. It's such a gorgeous thing for fandom to do for you, and also I think it may be the Hufflepuffiest thing EVER and I'm so so pleased \o/
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 17th, 2016 09:50 pm (UTC)
LOL! YES! It's the Hufflepuffiest thing in the world! I love that!

I still can't believe. God, I keep reading and going through the notes, so amazing. :)

Can't thank Grace enough for making it happen.
sassy_cissasassy_cissa on September 17th, 2016 09:48 pm (UTC)
OH I'm so glad you got it!! It was so sweet of her to do that and I was thrilled to put my little 2cents in.

Love you, darling!!

It's the best gift ever! :D:D

After I took these I thought I should've combed my hair or something. lol Thank you!
alisannealisanne on September 17th, 2016 10:12 pm (UTC)
Yay! You got it! <3
You are so adorbs! We have to meet up at a con some day. Misti? *crosses fingers*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 17th, 2016 10:27 pm (UTC)
I did! It was the best surprise in the world. :)))

And I was there in spirit!

We will! I'll check about misti, I know grace and you and fantasyfiend09 are doing it (I think I heard something?) so I'm definitely considering, of course!
writcraftwritcraft on September 17th, 2016 10:15 pm (UTC)
Ah, I'm so glad you got it! It was such a lovely idea and Grace did a sterling job rallying the troops. I'm sorry my note was a little on the brief side - I remember writing it well because Grace nabbed me just before I went to mod the Slash and Feminism panel (which I was nervous about). I had my laptop in the bar and was downing a swift half a lager, LOL. I may have been distracted, but the note was very much written with love and affection and my page possibly carries the faint scent of Vegas lager :D

I'm so pleased you liked it and the stamps look awesome <3
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 17th, 2016 10:28 pm (UTC)
LOL! Oh my god, what a memorable moment to be written at! *pictures it* That makes it even better! :D

So grateful you took the time. Your note was absolutely lovely, Writ. <333
