Greetings my favourite author. I write this to ask about your future books if you have a male character that is a Shadowhunter and doesn’t know, and he finds out about the Shadow-world, kind of like what happened with Clary and Tessa. I also want to know if you are a fan of: Teen Wolf,…
I see Cassie has decided to spread about our shame. (I stand by everything I ever said about murder lizards. Also that is just what being my friend is like. I will try to foist all my interests upon people. ‘Read this book someone gets spanked with a ballet slipper. Read this book an airplane wins a horse race. OK enjoy this movie it’s kind of like A Clockwork Orange meets A Little Princess. We’ll talk later, ok, bye!’)
Ah Wondercon, where we stared at a tray of sandwiches marked ‘for the Vikings,’ I had watched Teen Wolf and was like ‘it’s Scott and Stiles! Scott and Stiles!’ when I saw the actors, and Cassie whispered ‘What are their real names?’ and I answered ‘Tyler, everybody on that show is called Tyler.’ Elite Teen Wolf knowledge, dispensed by moi.
Speaking of narrators we also met a future narrator for the Bane Chronicles, the super nice George Blagden.
SARAH: Oh hi, you were in Les Miz, right? You were great, I loved your drunk impression. People do not give convincing enough drunk impressions in my opinion.
SARAH: I’m Irish.
GEORGE: I understand everything.
SARAH: These sandwiches are only for Vikings, have you heard?
GEORGE: I am on Vikings! You can have sandwiches.
SARAH: Cool, you’re a Viking? I’ll have to watch.
GEORGE: i’m a monk.
SARAH: Cassie, I’ve hooked up with a monk—
CASSIE: YOU HOOKED UP WITH A MONK?!
SARAH: —in the sense of having met a nice chap who plays a monk and also he says we can have the Viking sandwiches?
SARAH: … You’ve got to let me finish sentences.
Conventions are interesting, because you kind of slob around being you (if you’re me) and then you’re like ‘Oh huh, people I’m used to from the tellybox.’
I admit at London Comic Con, I became eerily transfixed by Peter Dinklage and this one tall gentleman who I didn’t see from the front kept standing in my line of sight. I became convinced he was my nemesis.
Finally I could take no more.
SARAH: GET OUT OF THE WAY BOZO!
DAVID HASSELHOFF: … Excuse me? Who ARE you?
SARAH: Wow is David Hasselhoff my nemesis now? I never expected this.
I’m a disaster with all people at all times is what I’m trying to say. I once gave a homeless dude a dollar and my friend dragged me off and was like ‘why did you just give BATMAN a dollar?’
…I’m sorry Christian Bale it was an honest mistake.
