Holiday Default
I've been informed that we will have a common room in the Grimmond building where we can gather -- and that food is allowed to be brought in. SO! Let's still meet out front just to make sure we don't lose anyone who might not see this announcement. Then, a few minutes after 1:00, we'll move to the common room. Please come out front first so we're not looking for you! With luck, anyone who's running late will see this message and come find us in the common room.

Pass this info on to your friends who plan to attend so everyone is in the loop.

See everyone soon! :D

All right! No one's raised any objections to the times I suggested for the meet-ups, so let's call it a done deal.


Both the Snack and the Snupin meet-ups with be Saturday afternoon:

1:00 - 1:50 pm: Snack meet-up
1:50 - 2:10 pm: overlapping Snack and Snupin "anything goes" period; time to potentially compare aspects of the two ship or discuss Sirius/Severus/Remus as a threesome
2:10 - 3:00 pm (or whenever we happen to decide we're done!): Snupin meet-up


Since we don't yet know what rooms and facilities might be available to us, let's meet outside the Grimmond Building (the building where all of the con programming will be taking place). There appears to be a nice little lawn with trees right across the sidewalk from the building -- it's the triangle-shaped bit on the campus map.

Bring your lunch; we'll have a slashy, pervy picnic! ;)


Keep watching the comm; if there are any changes, they'll be posted here.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

The official DiaCon schedule has finally been posted! \o/ So this is what I'd like to do with the meet-up schedule:


Both the Snack and the Snupin meet-ups with be Saturday afternoon:

1:00 - 1:50 pm: Snack meet-up
1:50 - 2:10 pm: overlapping Snack and Snupin "anything goes" period; time to potentially compare aspects of the two ship or discuss Sirius/Severus/Remus as a threesome
2:10 - 3:00 pm (or whenever we happen to decide we're done!): Snupin meet-up


If this poses a huge schedule conflict for anyone, speak now or forever hold your peace.

And if you haven't clicked the poll in this post, be sure to do it soon!

Holiday Default
DiaCon Alley is ten days away!!! I hope all of you are more prepared than I am right now. ;)

Well, with only ten days to go and no official con schedule yet posted, I think we're going to need to set a time for the meet-up(s) without it. So -- anyone who is involved in programming (e.g. is on a panel or giving a talk) or similar, comment here and tell me what times you're unavailable on Friday and Saturday. Let me know soon; I want to nail down a time in the next couple of days.


Also! I need names and a headcount. If you intend to come to the meet-up, tick the bubble in the poll below. If you have friends who've been lurking around and plan to come but who haven't joined the comm or made themselves known here, make sure they fill out the poll as well. Anyone who remains silent can, of course, still show up, but they'll miss out on goody bags and such.

Poll #1760975 Snack Meet-Up Poll #2

Are you coming?

Yes, I intend to be there!

We're still waiting for the official DiaCon programming schedule to be released before we can set a day and time for the meet-up. But I've been doing a little bit of advance thinking.

As most of you know, I'm working on putting together both a Snack meet-up and a Snupin one. At the moment, both groups appear as though they'll be small. I'm wondering now how everyone would feel about mixing or overlapping the two in some way.

I'm thinking something like a period for Snack, then a combo period for both pairings (perhaps in which the two pairings can be compared or the characters as a threesome can be discussed?), then a period for Snupin. There can still be separate goodies and prizes for each independent meet-up.

This is, of course, contingent upon there being a large enough block of usable time in the con schedule to fit it in.

Anyway, what do you all think of this idea? Fill out the poll, and comment if you have something to add or an alternate idea.

Poll #1758585 Snack Meet-Up Poll #1

Do you like the idea of an overlapping meet-up?

Sure, I like both pairings!

Holiday Default
Hello all!

It's been silent here for a while, so I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that the meet-up is definitely still on. There are some wonderful people contributing things for goody bags and prizes and such, and plans are starting to come together. ::is excited::

The DiaCon committee hasn't yet given us a programming or events schedule, so we can't pin down an exact time for our meet-up just yet. I think it's likely that it'll be Friday, and I'll do my best to make sure that it doesn't conflict too much with programming, or at least not any Snape-themed programming. ;) At any rate, we'll get it worked out once we're given an official DiaCon schedule.

Stay tuned for futher announcement and some polls coming very soon.

And remember -- contributions to goody bags are very welcome if you're so inclined. Ask me if you need ideas!

A few people have expressed interest in having a Snape/Sirius meet-up at DiaCon Alley. Given that I'm a little bit of a fan of the pairing myself (::cough:: bwahaha!), I thought I'd go ahead and set up this comm and see how many others might be on board.

So! If you're a Snack shipper who's attending DiaCon Alley, go ahead and join the comm here. If there seems to be enough interest, we'll see if we can plan something fun, eh?
