How I met Joss, Nathan and NPH.

So my dear friend Quinn called me after the 10:30 showing of Doctor Horrible's Sing Along Blog and told us he just followed the cast to the Mariot. At first I was iffy.. I was picturing him being like, 20 mins away from them and just staring at them from a far. So about 5 "Are you sure..." calls to him later, Cody and I decided to go check it out.

And when we arrived, HE WAS RIGHT THERE! ALL OF THEM! Joss, Nathan, NPH, "Penny", the Whedon Brothers, Fangirl #1... I was like "ZOMG!"

So, when it comes to stars, I normally just leave them alone and try not to bother them.. but this was different. MY HERO was standing no less than 10 feet from me, and I refused to walk away with out at least a picture. So Cody and I hung around the bar for an hour and a half just waiting for the perfect time for me to pounce him for an autograph. Finally, a couple near us heard me talking and the wife turned to me and said "Are you a fan of them?" ANd I was like "Yeah. *giggle*" and she asked if I wanted a picture with Joss, in which I replied with a very enthusiastic "YES!!!... and possibly Nathan..." and she was like "Okay! COOL! My husband an agent for two of them. They're all really nice, here let me introduce you!" And then she was all "JOSS! Hey Joss! This lovely lady here wants to meet you!" and he came over and I was in total and complete AWE. He came over, chatted for a bit, let me take a picture, I told him he was my hero, he said I was his heroin and then he got distracted by something pretty and walked off. So I continued to mingle and chat for about 20 more mins when we FINALLY got Nathan over to pose with me. It was funny b/c after the picture he was all "I didn't know there was a 2nd flash, I'm very ostentatious, I need to make sure it turned out okay!" *checks picture* "Ohhh that's a good one! okay cool!"

ANd then some dude did a lot of magic tricks that impressed NPH more than it should, but that's okay. NPH was standing with his back to me and my friend Tosh and I kept playing like we were gonna pinch his ass (I *so* WANTED TO! It was beautiful), so instead, I tapped his shoulder and he turned around and chatted us for a bit. Then we took pictures and I said

And then he took off and Joss staggered over again to chat us up some more. He was QUITE drunk but it's okay. It's such a blur I don't really remember what all was said.. I remember saying something like "Joss! You're a killer! WHY DO YOU KILL EVERYONE?" in which he smirked at me, raised one eye brow and replied (in a defensive, winy tone) "I don't kill EVERYONE! .. *insert evil Joss grin* .. but it is fun!!"

And then we proceeded to discuss how hung over he would be @ the Dollhouse panel the next day, and then some other stuff that was a bit blurry.. and then someone handed him a glass of wine, he got distracted and said he had to go say goodbye to someone. Gave us all hugs and left.


---John Barrowman waved @ me during his interview about his book.
My friend and I were in the WAY WAY back for his interview (the Wed before Comic Con), but if I shifted the right way, I could see him. So I did, and our eyes met. I stood on my tippy toes and lifted my head, John lifted his a bit more and he smiled. I waved and he waved back. omg my heart warmed so much. Later I met him for an autograph and he was awesome.
Sadly, my Gareth encounter was much less AWESOME. His peeps were being SO LAME and they would only let you get your things signed and then you had to move on. So while he was signing my stuffs I said *i love you.* and then he grinned funnily and said thanks. and then like the bumbling idiot I am I said "you're my favorite. you're the best part of torchwood. i love your one liners, you're hilarious"
and he just laughed and said "thanks" and then I moved on. At least I got to meet him though.

-Also, please don't hate me TOO much. I really don't wanna feel like I'm bragging. I don't want you guys to think that at all! I just need to write this out before it gets even more blurry in my head.-

In about 12 hours, I'll be on my plain to the UK! WOOO!

And that sucks about Gareth! It totally had to be his people making him Mr. Uppitypants cause we know he's not really like that ;)

OHMEHGAWD! Alcohol = srsly awesome social lubricant.
God.. I wish I had been there *kicks self for moving to the mid-eat*. Sounds like it was awesome! And in this special case it is totaally cool to boast, we're happy for you! And sad we wasn't there.. but we don't fret! <33333 (Clearly there is a reason I am saying "we" instead of "me"... right? >.> <.< <.> >.<)

HAHA! I kept saying all night "IT'S LIQUID, IT'S COURAGE... IT'S LIQUID COURAGE!!"

:D I ALMOST didn't go to the bar when my friend said they were there. I would have totally been kicking myself if I didn't go.

I was just so happy that they were all really sweet and really cool! <3

I don't think you're bragging! I am super jealous though. I mean, the only drunk celeb I have spoken to was one of the vampires from Lost Boys. lol He talked about me, him, this girl I befriended that day, and other people should go up to his room and snuggle while eating popcorn and watching a movie. He was very sweet and well-meaning in his delivery but he's pushing 50 and more or less flirting with a 22 year old at the time. Ick. And then he asked me if a smoked pot. Said I looked the type. o.O

So, yeah. I'm incredibly jealous. :P
And I really hate that I missed out on meeting Nathan (and Nicholas Brendon) back in January. I didn't have the kind of money I like to have when attending conventions so I opted out even though I totally could have gone. UGH.

Haha, which vampire was it? LOL! That's very amusing! But I agree, ick - 50 year old stoner hippy vamps are NOT cool.

Aww, don't worry about being hated. Who could ever hate you for more than a split second? ;D *huggles*
Really, I understand why you're writing this down (*remembers her very detailed FedCon reports*) and thank you for sharing this with us =D

But still... OHMIGODOHMIGODOHMIGOD!!!!!!!!!!! This is even much better than I thought. Holy frak!!!!!!!! Nathan checked the picture, AWWW!!
Seriously, how did you do that? Not one word would leave my mouth and then I'd tremble to death *lmao*
Hahaha, calling Joss a killer. You win!

John Barrowman is such a sweetheart ♥
And Gareth could have at least said more than one word... twice. Really.

And oh, I forgot:

Tosh and I kept playing like we were gonna pinch his ass (I *so* WANTED TO! It was beautiful), so instead, I tapped his shoulder

Did you take pictures of his ass? ;D

Have a good flight!

Well like I said, I don't remember A LOT of what I said.. But I mean.. I called him a killer, I think that might be worse than forgetting how to speak! HAHAHA!

This is true, with my cunning wit and charm I got Joss to give me an evil grin. hahaha.

I'm suprised I didn't just keep over and start foaming at the mouth. That's what I've always pictured myself doing in the face of such greatness!

haha! YAY! *hugs* I'll allow the split second considering the situation. <333

Hahaha, calling Joss a killer. You win!
AS SOON as the words left my mouth I was ready to kick myself, but then he was all goofy and laid back about it and so then I was okay with it. hahaha.

Seriously, how did you do that? Not one word would leave my mouth and then I'd tremble to death *lmao*
I think Nathan was the one I spoke to the least. Only because his amazingness totally intimidated me. Joss was drunk off his hiney so I was okay chatting him up, but with Nathan whenever he'd look at me or say something, or i'd say something (so, basically the whole time I was in his presence) the only thing I could think was *MALMALMALMALMALCAPTAIN-TIGHT-PANTS-MALMALMALzomgMAL!* hahaha

DUDE! I SO SHOULD HAVE! but that would have been awkward if he caught me doing that. lol!!

Thanks love! <3

OBVIOUSLY I don't actually hate you ^^ I couldn't think of a lot of people that would deserve to meet him (and Nathan and NPH) more than you, cause I know how important it is to you. NOTHING in this report sounds like you're bragging, it's all just pure fangirl glee that just makes me so so happy for you. (well I may still hate you a tiny bit :D ) But seriously. *squishes so hard*

Also EEEEEEEEEEEEEH @ John B, that is SO cute I just love him. <3

*squishes again*

There are only two people I can think of that deserve to meet the trio more than I do... and you're #1 on that list! haha, hence why I was thinking about you the whole time!

You are totally allowed to hate me a tiny bit, I know forsure I would if the tables were turned! :D

hahaha!! YAY! I'm glad I could at least give you that little piece of joy! :D

So sad that the people who don't understand Joss' greatness do no understand the honor that comes with being thought of near him! :)

Srsly, he is like a God. And having met him it just feels UNREAL. Like, i've always thought of him as being untouchable - and to be near him is just an impossible feat unless you're Angel, Buffy, Spike, Faith or anyone else in Jossverse.

omg and I totally forgot!!! When we were taking the picture, I was like "OMG I can't wait to show my friends!!!" and he was like "YAY! And I can look like a creepy pedophile!" hahaha!

Who could hate you for that??? I'm glad for the chance to live vicariously. :D It's just so awesome to find out that your hero is just as sweet and nice as you could ever hope for him to be, you know? I'm so glad you got the chance to meet him!! :D And then with the bonus of NF & NPH!?! *flail* awesome. ;D

Me again.... hey, do you think you could fill me in on the details of Comic Con? In that I mean - cost of tickets, hotel, etc. etc. Me and a girl on my flist are considering looking into it and making the trip together. Or rather, meeting up there and going together. So, you know, just an estimation of what we should have saved up to have a comfortable trip without stressing about money issues.
