    I think when people come across situations like this, it can be off putting and another reason for people to not want to post or be interactive. To be honest, you spend a lot of time online Melli, so maybe a break from the internet could be good for you. Get a hobby or something. Also, no one insinuated that they wanted you to leave, so stop being dramatic.

    My name is Sydney, she/her is just fine. From Huntington Beach, CA—living in Northern California now. 1) I’m in school to get my veterinary technician license and have worked with a lot of different animals. I met my fiancé working at Petco and we have a lot of pets. Never met an animal I didn’t like. 2) It’s such an exciting time in children’s cartoons rn with this kind of societal push for more diversity and greater depth of characters and development. I especially love the trend rn of strong female leads in fantasy/adventure. It’s everything I wanted as a kid: Gravity Falls, Owl House, Infinity Train, Amphibia, Craig of the Creek, all great shows I will fight you on this. I nerd out about this kind of stuff. 3) Cats follow me and my fiancé when we take late night walks. I’m not sure why this keeps happening. We had to walk home from a restaurant and get in our car to trick the cat: he tried to walk with us to get burgers and was about to cross a busy street. His name was Morochi and he waltzed into our home randomly and would steal my hair ties. Here are some friends in lieu of my photo:

    Can I please just say how heartwarming it is to see so many animal pictures here. I live vicariously. I'm Francesca (she/her), I'm 24 and I'm from England. I've been knocking around the MCRmy since 2010ish, and I've been a fan since about 2006. 1) I'm a writer. Like, professionally. It's cool. Horrendously paid but so so cool 2) My friends in school used to call me Frank, which I still answer to, and one time my stereo was playing Vampire Money and when G said 'how 'bout you, Frank' I actually started to reply and got irritable that I was interrupted by Frank Iero. 3) I'm learning how to read the tarot and my life goal is to be that old lady with a pack of cards who looks knowingly at people, flips a card and unearths their entire soul in a sentence. This picture was me at Halloween. I went as a fortune teller (it's the reason I picked up the tarot) and accidentally ended up looking exactly like I normally look except also like I was auditioning for the next series of Peaky Blinders. Which you should definitely watch.

    Hi friends! I’m Brinn, I’ve been around the forums since 2011 (and a fan since the Helena video was filmed). My pronouns are they/them. I’ll be 26 in December and I live in California. 3 (more?) facts about me: 1). I, too love animals very, very much; my family and I have three cats, three dogs, and I have a snake. My favorite animals are octopuses. 2). I write poetry and compete in poetry slams in my area. I’m alright. 3). I love going to concerts (I know that’s really surprising and unique to this forum but it’s a really big part of my life). The last show I saw at the time of writing this was Against Me! On a solo trip to LA. Here’s the latest picture I have of me, with my snake (his name is Severus Snake): I don’t know why my picture is sideways but I can’t fix it, so here it is.

    Thailand (some islands and Chiang Mai/Pai), Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. Devastatingly beautiful and GOD THE FOOD. I'd love to visit Korea and Japan, they are on my list. Heyyyyy! Are you still in film?? I am sort of reaching toward being in film. Congrats on your sobriety also, that's huge. I generally do not ever want a real job ever again (I'm freelance and also did the second job thing til I collapsed) but a librarian is the one job I would do happily. Yes definitely. Not just because there are a lot of names (and gender identities actually) that I never actually knew and just kind of guessed or surmised. Maybe a new Introductions thread? Might be easier for any new people too?

    can i suggest that if you manage to get someone on board who has the right connections, they might be able to swing stuff and put a good word in. not really sure who that person would be but there's gotta be someone who has MCR connections and would appreciate the effort that's being put in here and want to help. wouldn't necessarily want them involved too early cos it would need to be a professional approach, once other things are in place - otherwise it runs the risk of looking like a pie-in-the-sky fangirly thing rather than a proper serious meet-up. i don't mean it as a criticism, i just mean if you sent a letter to (for instance) Grant Morrison you'd want him to understand that it's a serious venture and not some random fan writing. it's got to be the right approach so it's not just discarded out of hand with no consideration. hope that makes sense. i'm sure you've already thought carefully about how you'll approach potential sponsors. maybe i should go drink coffee and get my brain functioning properly.

You can never make me frown because you're just so fucking you. Brinn. You are strong. Do not let anyone or anything think otherwise or take that away. You are strong. Girls looks up up to you, You help make the world be better. Remember this, no matter what happens stay what you are You are beautiful and magical and it is pleasure knowing you.

    Melli, we never said anything about stoping posting, we just said it might be an idea to keep most of the homestuck talk in the homestuck thread if you want to talk with people who don't care about homestuck in this thread. Same goes with dr who. When this is said, it's fine with me if that is what you guys want to talk about, but I am not going to join in. I were just responding to the fact that this thread had gone silent, as to why I have gone silent. I still love wub you all!

    Hey guys! Brinn told me today via text that you all had nominated me to be treasurer. I really appreciate the vote of confidence, but I cannot accept this nomination. Finances are not my strong suit and I do not currently have the time to necessary to do this job correctly at the present time or in the future. With that said, I would still like to be involved in an active role. If no one has claimed the position, I volunteer to head up the merch raffle committee. No one knows merch like me and I would be a good steward of this project. It has been beautiful watching MCRmy London raise a significant amount of money for Make-A-Wish Foundation and I hope this precedent can be continued by our meetup. Please let me know if you are interested in having me in this role. Thanks guys!

    Hey all! I’m Alex and I’ve been around since 2012. I’m 28, live in Los Angeles, and am beside myself with excitement about being able to remember my login after so long. Three facts: - I’m a publicist for a university. I may be a grown up emo kid now but I certainly have maintained a chic all black wardrobe 🤟🏽 - I fundraise for the Downtown Women’s Center on LA’s Skid Row. They are the only resource for unaccompanied women in the area and are focused on permanent rehousing (I’m super proud to be affiliated with them and am passionate about this issue!). - My favorite story to tell people about my dad is this one: When MCR had their Halloween show in Los Angeles during the Black Parade era my best friend Megan and I used six different phones to try and win tickets on KROQ. We failed. My dad somehow found out that a limited number of people would be able to get in at the door on Halloween (in retrospect he was definitely trying to win me tickets as well 😭). So, he pulled me and Megan out of school on the 30th and whisked us to House of Blues Sunset, where he slept on the filthy streets of Hollywood with us, keeping us safe, until all three of us got into the show. 🖤 Here’s my face:

    Hi, I'm Ash. I've been around... too long man. I'm 25. He/Him pronouns. My favourite album is Danger Days, though I do love The Black Parade for it's theatrical feeling, but Danger Days won my heart. I feel that's an unpopular opinion but that's okay. 3 Facts: i play guitar (i picked it up about 3 years ago) i have a film degree i recently turned vegetarian and it's pretty cool Picture (sorry 'bout my face):

    GERARD WAY @ The Fonda 10/14/2014 I started my trip by traveling down to my friend Eileen (sallyskells)'s house and spending the night, dying and cutting our hair, shopping for road trip supplies, and making sure we had all of our stuff that we wanted to bring together. We left for LA around 3pm on Tuesday and met my friend Alexa (whom you may know as xInsanityBites) and her friend Ashley in line where they had been waiting for hours to get good spots in pit. Eileen and I had balcony tickets but we wanted to get there early to spend some time with A&A and get good pick of the balcony views. We sat and talked and I spent some time passing around pages of my Memory Chronicle Regiment scrapbook to fit in a few more messages. We had a great time getting to know Alexa and Ashley better and meeting the other people close to us in line. We made plans to meet up after the show and went our separate ways when the doors opened. Eileen and I were the first people to go up to the balcony and so we staked out the best seats- front and center, right behind the reserved 'boxes', which were just gray couches grouped in U's in the front row. While we waited for everyone to fill in and the show to start, we made our merch purchases and got comfy in our seats. As we were sitting there and the seats were filling up and people were milling around, we got a few surprises. First, as Eileen was buying some swag downstairs, this youtuber that my sisters and I used to watch religiously when I was in high school and who I still follow on twitter and keep track of asked whether the seats next to me were open, and I just said "no, sorry, one is open but this one is taken" before I even registered who it was. So I got to speak in person with Mitchell Davis, if that name impresses any of you. Then, right before The Eeries came out, groups of people started filling in the reserved boxes in the front rows of the three sections. Because there was nothing else to look at, I was watching them detachedly- until I recognized one of the people walking down the stairs. I elbowed Eileen (probably rougher than I needed to) and hissed "Check it out, Ray's over there!!" because it was true-- Ray Toro was standing five feet away from us. He sat down in the box ahead and to the right of us, which was exciting enough, but after a few minutes moved to the box directly in front of me. Honestly, if I tripped on my shoes I'd have fallen on him. Slowly people figured out that he was there... aaaaaand the screaming started. Everyone took their cameras out and started calling him, and slowly kids started getting up and trying to walk down to him and get his autograph as he sat. A few got through before the only security guard called in a friend for backup, and it was giving me a lot of secondhand uncomfortability. He looked very comfortable and was friendly with the people that got through to him, but the sheer number of people yelling and the fact that 90% of the people in both the balcony and the pit below were staring at him had to have caught his notice. This girl behind Eileen was absolutely losing her mind and yelling ridiculous things... I really hope he didn't hear her. When the curtains opened and The Eeries started, I really enjoyed what I heard. Their music was fun and bright and punky and went really well with the sounds Gerard's had in this album. Their lyrics were simple and maybe even a bit repetitive but their message and attitude and stage presence made up for it. They did some speaking with the crowd and gave a few speeches that were inspirational and I thought they were really good. I'd definitely give them more of a listen. When Gerard came out (and everyone subsequently and rightly lost their mind) I was so excited- and so impressed! His voice sounded SO GOOD. Whatever he's been doing to improve his vocal quality is really working. One song, a cover I think, that was slower and simplistic, just gave me the chills. I was just enthralled. His energy was so good, and he was all over the stage. He said a lot of really cool things and I just fell in love with him and his music that much more. He gave a lot of explanations for the titling and writing of songs that I loved. For instance, he explained that 'Drugstore Perfume' was about the desire people have to get out of the small towns and the places they grew up in, and that it was titled by Lindsey. He also affirmed my suspicions that 'Maya the Psychic' was written about mental illness. Someone in the audience had brought a bouquet of roses and passed them around, and right before 'Drugstore Perfume' someone tossed one to Gerard and he caught it. In an Italian accent, he said "Take-a the rose-a, my love" and tossed the rose offstage, which was when I noticed that Lindsey was standing offstage with a group of people who I gradually identified as Jimmy and Chantal, Mikey and (Kristen?), and Francis Bean. When Gerard performed 'Brother' he dedicated it to Ray, Mikey, and (I believe) everyone from MCR as well as his friends who were there. During that song, Ray got out of his seat and slipped under the bar by his couch to sit at the very front of the balcony. He kneeled on the floor in front of the ledge that all the stage lights and projectors are mounted on and put his arms up on it, like a kid sitting at a dinner table that's too high. It was the cutest thing I'd ever seen. Gerard announced that the next song would be needing someone to play the tambourine and began scouring the crowd to pick someone to ask up there. This was just a fleeting thought, but at the time it seemed to me that he was looking for someone specific. He pointed at someone in the front and asked security to help her out. "That one there, in the black shirt. The one right there, kind of freaking out." The security helped her over the barrier and she came up the stairs- that was when I noticed that I knew who it was. "What's your name?" Gerard asked. She leaned into the mic and said, "Alexa." Eileen and I looked at each other and freaked out. Gerard and the band started the music and Alexa got right into it. She did such a great job and it was obvious that everyone in the building thought the same. She jumped and twirled around and Gerard sang with her and they played off each other. It was a really cool experience, even just watching. After the show, everyone milled around for a while, trying to wait out and see if he would do an encore or not. When enough people left and we figured that he wasn't coming back out, Eileen and I went outside to meet back up with Alexa and Ashley to see if we could meet him. There was a large group of people outside that eventually dwindled down to a manageable size, and after a lot of worry, hunger, and sore legs we found out that he was indeed coming outside. Security came out and told us that under no circumstances could we take pictures or have our phones out, go through and get back in line again, take too long talking to him, etc. It took a long time to get through everyone, of course, and so naturally I was suddenly completely exhausted, but as soon as the line moved around the corner and I could see him talking to other fans I felt all right (nervous as hell, but all right). We noticed he was offering a hug to everyone after he was done talking to them. He asked "Do you want a hug?" to a fan who replied "Yes!!" immediately, and everyone in line laughed. He said, "Well, I have to ask, because what if there's someone who doesn't want a hug?" It made me happy that he still cares enough about each individual fan to not only hug them but bother to ask if it was okay with them. Eileen talked to him first. She gave him a black tote bag she'd made with the American Widow and the US flag on it in puff paint with a Gerard quote on the back. She told him something personal that she wanted him to know and he was really supportive and congratulatory. He picked up her poster to sign, and she mentioned that she'd hoped that he would be able to draw her something but knew he wouldn't have time. He agreed that there wasn't enough time, but when he gave the poster back he'd drawn an alien head along with his signature. He gave her a hug and then it was Alexa's turn. When Gerard saw her he got really excited, and told her that he was so impressed with how she'd performed onstage and that he'd picked her because he recognized her from a previous time they'd met recently and that he was really impressed with her energy and good vibes. After she got her hug from Gerard and moved on to let Ashley talk to him, a woman who had been sitting near Ray up in the balcony pulled her aside and introduced herself as someone from WBR. She said she was really impressed with her show and wanted to say how much she'd enjoyed it. After Ashley was done talking to Gerard, it was my turn. First, I pulled the book out of my bag. "Sorry that this is kind of cumbersome, but... I made you this book. I started this project when you opened your PO box so it's been kind of a long time coming." He took it, looking at the cover, and said "Hey, wow, thank you for this. Let me put it with my stuff so I can look at it later." He gave it to the lady from WBR (who was holding everything else that people had given him) and then took my ticket so that he could sign it. "I really appreciate that," he said. and gave me a hug. "Thank you for coming to my show". I took my ticket from him. "Thank you... for... having the show," I said awkwardly, and walked away. And that was that! Eileen and I said goodbye to Ashley and Alexa, and left for our car. And that was that for the show- if you guys want to know anything else just ask, I may have left something out.

    It's definitely worth taking ideas from festivals and cons. I made a lot of mental notes at the Olympics last year and at Hay in May, and 'professional' is the way to go, for sure. Should we try to work out a demographic? We're such a varied fanbase it might be more of a hindrance than a help though...

    Also, the media is already asking them stuff like "how did it feel to watch your friends die" and interviewing them? What the hell? If the event itself doesn't give them permanent psychological damage and haunt them for the rest of their life, I'm fairly certain the journalists will. Augh. (I'm really mad)

    I'm in that situation too, and the school doesn't seem to care. But I told my mother and now we inform the school basically every time it happens again. Eventually they're going to have to give in, if you just keep pushing them. And if they don't do anything, then you take it even further. My mother ended up informing our councilor of the situation in my school because it wasn't just me that was being bullied, but a whole bunch of other people. In the end, they eventually gave in. It took ages, but they did eventually listen. Even if they don't seem to give a shit, you've got to keep pushing until they eventually do. Because not only is it just cruel as hell, but it's also illegal to allow or not acknowledge bullying, whether in a school or workplace. You can also guarantee that if you're being bullied, there's countless other people in the school who are going through the same stuff, and having people not listen to them. BASICALLY as harsh as this is going to sound, if you take it to a principal or vice-principal and they STILL don't do anything, you're going to have to take it even higher, or at least threaten to. Then they'll definitely listen when people are threatening them.

    Mia, many of us have been in your situation. It seems easier to take the blame on yourself and let things run their course but in reality you need to stand up for yourself. You're worth protecting and fighting for, and it's not okay what these bullies are doing OR how your school is handling it. Please tell an adult you trust. You may feel like you need people to support you when you tell your school administrators what's happened to you. Please, tell the administrators. If they don't do anything, talk to the school board. Somewhere, someone is willing to listen to you and take action for you. You just have to find them.

    i was going to suggest sulfur's ideas. it might be possible to tell your vice principle or a counselor or someone yourself, if your parents don't listen... though it would be more helpful to have their support... everyone knows that people will take kids more seriously when their parents have the same concerns. you shouldn't dismiss bullying as you "just being sensitive." it's a very serious issue. maybe the school you're at now will take you more seriously.

    it's not so much agreeing with everything a candidate says, as it is finding which one is the least worst. or finding more things you like about one candidate than the other ones (ex: i know very little about economics. i probably wouldn't agree with all parts of obama's economic plans. but i agree with his social views [which i know a lot about, and which i care more about], more so than romney's. so i'm voting for obama.) i'm taking government right now, and the one thing my professor stresses is the importance of at least voting, if nothing else (assuming you live in a country that has voting.) since voting is basically the only say you have in government... you can watch politics on tv and read/write blogs, but that doesn't directly influence the government like voting. another point my prof made, is that you don't necessarily have to make an extremely educated vote. you can vote along party lines. you can vote for romney purely because he's pro-life, obama purely because he's black ... as long as you do the one civic duty that's really asked of you. (sorry that these examples all pertain to america. i mean this for every country that has a system like the US, but i don't know much about politics anywhere else. and i just want people to vote if they're able to okay haha.)

    Hey Guys, just an update from Francesca and I. The List Committee will reconvene once the List Ladies are able to lighten the load of education the society decides to dump on the shoulders of all those below the age of 25, 'cause they're all old jealous old codgers and can't see young people happy. And once the Elections are over. I figure everyone here's busy with school or work. Good thing we have 7 years to work on this.

And not meant at anyone in particular at all. It's just the vibe this place has now.... Maybe things are different because I feel like I've found my place irl but I don't know. I'm just feeling nostalgic for the old days.

    "and I killed so many plants!..." Sustainability is a good idea, provided that it doesn't complicate the planning of this event more than it has to. Also, for promotion, we could also try to get the leaders of all other meetups to play our promo video during their meetups. That way it will reach more fans, ones not active on this site.

    I would like to say some words about the planning now. I won't be a big part in the practical preparations because I'm far awxy, and actually don't have time. But I hope I may be helpful with advice and questions as to how things can actually be done. If what I say isn't helpful, please ignore it My thoughts as off right now: too many people wants to do too many things at the same time. There is no leader, so no one has the final word, and it doesn't seem like anyone has the overview as to who does what. I've seen at least to different people being told to make a logo. Awesome to have more suggestions, but shouldn't people know that they're not the only one to do something? Also, right now it seems like everybody volunteer to be the head of a committee, and that's awesome! But no one else even gets the chance to say they also wants to head the committee before the role is taken. Is it first come first serve? I'm okey with it, I just ask if that how we wants it. Also, do we have a description of what the committees involve, or is the committees made up as we go? My suggestion to rein this in and make it happen in an orderly manner: choose a leader. Choose a secretary. If people have questions about things we have decided earlier, make them contact the secretary personally. Make a list of committees we need and get the heads. Let the committees organise themselves outside this thread, but not woth new threads, in their prefered wxy. May be different from committee to committee, but have only the head post official news on how each committee is doing. This wxy the thread wouldn't be crowded with all the things that not everyone needs to know, and people could easier get the information they need. This is only my thoughts and my suggestions, so if you don't like it, then just ignore it.
