dA looks different o.O
I went to the Portland Retro Gaming Expo and RIGHT AWAY met PeanutButterGamer (again) and BrutalMoose. The second we walked onto the showroom floor, I stopped and said to Angel, "Is that PBG?" She has bad eyes, so she kept saying "where?" and "No." So I walk over, thinking she's right.
I'm looking at the video games they have displayed when Angel goes, "Oh, that is PBG, and BrutalMoose is with him." I dropped a game I was holding and went, "Oh god!!!" and tried to walk away
Angel and I just kinda averted our gazes and argued through whispers, "You go up to them. ... YOU go up to them!!!" They left the showroom floor, and I was like, FUCK IT, I'm going to look like a stalker and follow them! So we did (while Angel begged me not to, lmao). I caught sight of my brother and waved him over, telling him excitedly that PBG and BrutalMoose (whom I will call Ian from here out) were right over there, and HE approached them (GOD I'm a wuss). My brother talked to them for a little bit, and I lean over to Ian and I said, "Hey. My sister has been going on and on for weeks about how badly she wants to hug you and get a picture." Oh lord was it adorable. Angel first got her picture, and he turned to her and put his arms out and said, "Are we hugging?" So they hug, and he doesn't let go of her right away. He squeezed her, and shook her a little bit, and she damn near cried because she was so happy XD aww! Then it was my turn!!! As I hugged him I was like, "I harass you on tumblr, and I'm REALLY sorry about it." He asked who I was, I said I was MissYennon. He didn't recall, and asked what my picture was. I described it, but I knew he wouldn't remember that either. So then I was like, "I told you about my brother taking a picture of your back at PAX." THEN he remembered!
And then I turned to PBG and asked him for a hug, WHICH I GOT XD and I mentioned it was our second meeting, and he was all "I thought so!"
"I chased you up the escalator!!" "Oh yeah!! YOU DID!"
We parted ways, where Angel and I hung out with our brother for a little bit until I suddenly noticed SpaceHamster (Jeff) was standing over there with PBG and Ian. So we went over there AGAIN, and I stood there patiently while my brother talked to him for a little bit. He looked at me, and I said, "I like your stuff too." He asked me what my name was, and I was about to say "Rachelle" when I wondered what he would do if I said my username. "Yennon." He started to nod, but then I saw recognition flash in his eyes, and he said, "Oh! We've talked on tumblr." I smiled and nodded, "Yes we have." We got a few pictures, I joked about Angel being in love with Ian; Jeff said Ian has that effect on people, and I responded, "I know! He got me too! God, my heart's still broken..!" haha ^.^
LATER, we went to their panel which was a lot of fun! After, Angel got her Hyrulian Shield pillow signed by PBG, BrutalMoose, SpaceHamster, and ProJared. I shook Jared's hand and was a little rude to him to see how he would react. It was funnier than I had expected it to be
I told him I loved his stuff, but sometimes I feel like I hate him. His arm got a limp and he looked sad, but I kept shaking it ^-^;;; and then I left it at that without apologizing. I feel a bit bad about it, but I also feel like he knew it was a joke
The next day I actually went to the con on my own! I saw them all again, and we smiled at each other, but that was about it. I ran into Jeff who recognized me again and said hey. That was cool ^.^ I went to ProJared's panel and got to see his next video early
woohoo! I walked around a bit more, then went home. I had a great time ^-^
SO, I got my new computer!! It cost me a lot of money, and I'm in the poorhouse for a while... better make it worth it!!! The goal is to make a video by Halloween! I'll let you guys know when I put it up ^.~
