Big Damn Heroes

December 8th, 2006 at 06:45 am

I am so furiously, disgustingly angry on behalf of alot of people right now.

Im a Browncoat.

This weekend, up until a few hours ago, a MAJOR convention had been planned. Over 500 people had bought tickets, made hotel reservations, and bought plane tickets.

Several Firefly/Serenity actors were going to attend. This was a VERY BIG DEAL. Some people spent upwards of $1000 getting there, not including food and drinks.

A few hours ago? The company in charge posted this:

"Booster Entertainment apologizes for the great inconvenience, but due to unforeseen circumstances, Flanvention is cancelled. An official notice will be posted within 10 days."

THE ENTIRE WEBSITE HAS BEEN REMOVED EXCEPT FOR THAT NOTICE.

Less than a day before the con started, the whole thing was cancelled.

I have a very good friend who was SO EXCITED to go. She was packing.

I dont even know if she knows. I dont know if she got on the plane knowing..or if she didnt find out until she got to the hotel.

Im so mad and disappointed on her behalf. She bought her tickets months ago, and recently, due to a whole mess with her living situation, had questioned whether she should even go, because the $400 she spent would really come in handy.


In some good news, even though the con was cancelled, some of the actors showed up anyway.

Adam Baldwin, Nathan Fillion. You guys have class.

    Oh, wow. I would have been pretty ticked off. As a Firefly fan myself, I feel it on behalf of those folks. I love Nathan Fillion. I started watching him on One Life to Live years ago, followed him to Two Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place, followed him to Firefly, loved his decidely wicked turn on the second half of season 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and then of course, to the Serenity movie. It was so nice of him and Adam Baldwin to show up anyway.

    ack! hadn't heard the word con in years!!! used to work for a RPG/gaming company and was in charge of our cons, so your post brought back tons of memories!

    sorry to hear the event was cancelled. DH and i, and my parents, are big firefly fans. are they looking at possibly reorganizing the event?

    Heheh. You know, I have yet to even watch Firefly/Serenity? That and Battlestar Galactica... and 24. Wow, I'm missing out. But being a huge Sci-Fi fan, I'm sure I'll love it when I finally get around to it.

  4. LuckyRobin Says:

    BA--You are missing out. Seriously, you need to rent Firefly. And BG. And 24. And the new Dr. Who. Our library system has 24 so I have been working my way through that. Don't know if they have BG or not, I'll have to check.
