Boring stuff over.
It was amazing. Boston and NYC were packed. s00j was phenomenal. shadesong was a small angel without whom I couldn't have done it--and that goes for everyone who helped move art several blocks from the parking garage in a frigid New York winter night, too. omnisti consistently slayed everyone with his Kingdom of the Mice rendition. It was exhausting and exhilarating and a little sad, since I don't know when I'll see my shipmates again, or when I'll be back in that great behemoth of a city, (someone give me an excuse!) or when I will ever be so lucky as to see a 12 year old girl cry because of one of my stories, or dance because of them, or mouth along to every word. Small graces in this life.
So I'm a little glum now that it's over, and trying not to look at the massive pile of work that was cheerfully waiting when I got back. And Christmas presents to buy, and and and.
No rest for me, wicked or no. But thank you to all, I have been humbled and exalted, and I love you.
