Early Tuesday morning, Javert and I departed from our station in the Kansas aerodrome…. our destination? Houston, Texas. After many hours of battling hurricane fronts and Marchand’s love of all things tourism, we made dock in San Leon and rendezvoused with the rest of the crew who had set up camp just outside of Houston. We spent a day or so playing sweat shop and mosquito bait, much to Capt’n Whittaker’s amusement, then made way to Baton Rouge – Javert’s home town – for a gathering by the name of LouisiANIME.
It was the first time that we had the honor of visiting another sector of this dimension, as we had mostly been invited to events in Texas ‘til this point. We didn’t really know what to expect or prepare for, and well… Long story short, the crew was blown away by the reception we received upon reaching our destination. Our panels were full to the point of overflow, our tables were an area of high-traffic and heavy interest, and we had the fortune of meeting and greeting with many a con-goer. The staff were friendly, accommodating and very pleasant to work with. A variety of massive ‘thank yous’ should go out to everyone who made this weekend such a spectacular success. After the convention, we paid my own home town, New Orleans, a visit and crew-bonded over beignets and alcohol. Overall, it was an amazing time, and we hope to have the opportunity to return to Louisiana as soon as we can. (Helpful Hint: You want us back? Tell your local conventions! It’s as easy as posting on the forums.)
Next on the agenda, we will be paying Corpus Christi, Texas a visit for a gathering called Realms Con. Pay close attention now, not everything may be what it seems…
