  • Fic Battle

    A TGIF/F original and con favorite for years — You won’t want to miss this!

    Team up with other attendees to take turns crafting a (ridiculous) multifandom fic–LIVE!!–as the genres and prompts keep changing every 3 minutes. Writers can use whatever characters they are comfortable with, just try to keep the story going. The audience will decide what direction the story will go at each turn while the authors try to keep up! Hilarity is guaranteed, continuity is not. We can’t wait to see what transpires! Be there on Saturday for this awesomeness.

  • Meal Meetups

    We know it’s important to connect with others over shared identity. We provide five opportunities to sit down to a catered meal with others and have a discussion panel on your experiences. Identity meetups do not coincide with other meetups or panels; you won’t miss any other programming to attend them.

    Friday lunch (1 hour): Trans / Non-Binary
    Friday lunch (1 hour): Kinky
    Saturday lunch (1 hour): Asexual / Aromantic
    Saturday lunch (1 hour): Bisexual / Pansexual
    Saturday dinner (2 hours): People of Color*

    These gatherings are a great way to connect with other attendees who share your identity, learn their stories, celebrate discoveries, air frustrations or misconceptions together, etc. It’s also a chance to ask and answer questions of others. If you are questioning, we encourage people who want to learn more about these topics to come join the conversation*, even just to listen. These are safe, non-judgmental spaces.

    *The POC meetup is closed to only POC.

  • Buddy Meetup

    On Thursday night, we’ll give everyone who signed up for our Buddies program the chance to meet their new friend! Come chat with your buddy in a low-key environment and meet other con newbies and veterans. It’s a great way to connect with other attendees and make friendships that could last a lifetime — you never know!

  • Buddy Breakfast

    We know not everyone can make it in on Thursday night, so we’re giving you another chance to connect with your assigned Buddy on Friday morning. Grab a plate from the buffet and slide into the Sails, where you can chat about your common fandoms and share whatever questions or expectations you may have for the weekend. Bring your awesome selves and a smile!

    *Note: You can still get free breakfast if you don’t sign up for Buddies, but we’ll be strongly encouraging folks to sit with new people and welcome the newbies.

  • Game Time

    Awesome as we think they are, we understand that our big events aren’t necessarily everyone’s cup of tea, or everyone’s speed. Things get loud; rooms get crowded; emotions run high. That’s why we’ll open up the Con Suite for games during the Fic Battle, Club Femslash, and the TGIF/F Reflections panel. Bring your own games or play some of ours, whatever tickles your fancy — card, board, or otherwise. We just want you to have a great time. We’ll provide a sign-up sheet so you can advertise your game ahead of time.
