Well, damn. Next (school) year is going to be my last in NY, so this year will be my last opportunity to go to NYCC.. so if you make it in the future, let me know how it goes!
And hm, c2e2? That should be fun! Unfortunately I don't have the money to go to cons in cities that I don't have friends in (well, I DO have friends in Chicago, but I'm not about to ask any favors when I haven't spoken to them in years). But if you go to that one, I'd like to hear about that scene too!
