So the friending meme post has over 200 comments and people keep joining it. I went through to make sure I had friended everyone who had posted there, and ended up making a summary of everyone so I could check more easily. Then I thought, hey, that list might be useful to other folks, too. So here you go, alphabetized. Hover over each userhead to see the useful little window that shows whether you have friended each person yet or not! :-)

agonyatlas, angelbabe_cj, annephoenix, annescriblerian, ariadneelda, blondblahness, catsintheattic, clockworkwasp, creatore_magico, daiseechain, dracos_doll, featherxquill, rylanor, fluffyllama, gala_apples, gatewaygirl, hpstrangelove, inamac, ishtar79, its_art, joanwilder, kellychambliss, kennahijja, little_werewolf, lokifan, lullabylily, melusinahp, mimine, multiclassgeek, naturegirlrocks, nenne, r_grayjoy, ragdoll, ravenna_c_tan, sabethea, samtastic4, scarletladyy, sestra_prior, sinick, slyth_wolf, son_of_darkness, spark_of_chaos, thisgirl_is, twilightsorcery, wickedblonde, winoniel, writcraft

And I know there were other folks at the con on LJ, but this was everyone who replied to the friending meme post so far. So make sure you all got each other. :-)

After the Old Lady Smut Brigade panel on Friday, several attendees asked us for a list of the Old Lady Fics we quoted.

Here's the full list with a few suggestions for further reading. Who said, “Missionary Zeal”? I heard that! And since you mention it, most of our old lady fics are considerably more inventive than boring old missionary. These stories are mostly R/NC17.

The fics we mentioned, in order of appearance:Collapse )

So, remember the smiling red-head who was skipping around filming people? Well, it was for this.

Read more...Collapse )

You'll have to all forgive the bad editing, I was using a program I've never before tried so it's not the best but I hope it gives everyone fond memories. As I said on the youtube description, if anyone is unhappy with it I will of course take it down.

There is a link to download the video here.

Note to mods: If this is inappropriate, please feel free to delete

First off, I hope everyone has a great time at the con! Really gutted that I can't make it :(

Which brings me to the point of this post: Are there any London-based fans and/or any International fans staying in the capital for a day or so after the Con, who'd be up for a Pub-Meet on the Monday? From experience, I know that the Post-con Blues can set in very quickly, and a side-meet serves as a nice way to cushion the comedown.

The venue I propose is The London Stone, which is the last remaining sibling of Snape's Pub (favoured t00b venue). It has the decor you'd expect, and the infamous Seven Deadly Sins cocktails :)

Provisional kick-off would be around 5pm, to give us a chance to nab seats.

Anybody interested?

EDIT: Seems like there's enough interest, now. So, we're on! 5pm at the London Stone, and you can all tell me how awesome the con was...

We've just released our DiaCon Alley app at http://www.diacon-alley.co.uk/app/ !

It has the full programme of events for the con and should work with most smartphones, tablets and laptops. And for those of you who won't have any internet, it even works offline! Just visit the app once when you do have an internet connection and it will automatically save it and load the next time you visit, even if you've got no signal.

If you have an iPhone you can add it to your home screen by tapping the button in the middle of the bottom menu bar in Safari and then selecting "Add to Home Screen".

Hello! If anyone wants any information about Canterbury - where Kent University campus is compared to train stations, which pubs have wifi, which are nice places to go... etc etc - please do ask on this post. I've lived in and around the city all my life, and I am happy to share my expertise on the place if anyone wants it :)

So my flight doesn't leave until Monday morning, just wondering if anyone has a room I can stay in Sunday night. Would be willing to split the cost, obviously, and I am super nice! 22, slasher, from California, but currently studying in Berlin...let me know! 

Also, anyone traveling back to London early Monday morning? My flight leaves at 6:40.

Getting so excited!! Can't wait to see everyone!

-Sam

EDIT!!: so the general consensus seems to be head back to london on sunday and stay there, soooo...does anyone have any extra space in london? again, willing to split the cost. thanks!

Just a very fast, last reminder that any Snape/Sirius or Snape/Remus fans attending DiaCon will want to get over to diacon_snack and/or diacon_snupin and make your presence known quickly!

See you all in a few days. :D
