Kristen is doing a day-by-day, I think. My impression of the event is much more holistic than that, so here's what I've got. I think it will likely combine well with other reports for a full accounting of the weekend.

19 true things about The Witching Hour )

I'm sure I forgot to mention something, but that's enough to be getting started.

I met a ton of people which was really fantastic *friends liekwhoa* but the weekend was largely about solidifying and celebrating friendships that were already in place. Like, for the first time I got to really talk to a whole bunch of people whom I'd briefly met before, and that was nice. Lots of little things like that.

I drove up all along I-95 and then home via the Merritt and the Tappan Zee and the latter was much quicker. I ran into a little traffic JUST after I crossed the bridge, but it was generally fine. Considering the weather delays, I was really glad I drove, and goodness knows we got a lot of use out of the car.

I slept 9 hours last night. :D :D :D

When I was on the way home, I wasn't sure about Lumos. Now I really want to go. :)) The thing about cons that is difficult to really grok until you've been to a big one is the intentional community they create, and how odd and almost painful that loss is at the end of it. I know that our fandom is wanky as all hell and we can't go five minutes without somebody losing their shit, but there are so many of us, and there is good creative energy at its core, and I *love* it.

OK, so I fixed the username tags, but wasn't it kind of awesome when they were all broken? Like Fandom Mad Libs or something. Anyway. Curly quotes suck.
