SPX Specs: Part 1!

SPX 2011 was everything a geek could want and everything a geek could need. Saw some cool people, stalked a few more, and kept it so cool I could’ve passed for a hipster. Well, no, I don’t think my pants were tight enough, but I think I passed for something even better, which was a dyed-in-the-argyle-wool GEEK! Which, when you get down to it, is really the best thing you could possibly be. 😀

Of course I geeked out at SPX, and of course I brought my geekiness back to share with you, my fellow geeks of DC! Throughout the first day of the expo, I went around to as many artists/creators/writers as I could and asked them all a deep, probing, deeply disturbing question and recorded their responses for posterity. I wanted an interesting way to get to know the artists, writers, and their characters so that I could write copious amounts of fan smut. Just reams of it. Slashing everyone together.

O__o

Here’re their answers, so enjoy!

      The title alone would endear it to my heart, but it’s so wretchedly cute, I don’t even know how my badass heart could stand it.

  2. I think we met at SPX! You took a picture of me with Ginger Haze. Can I see it?
