making new friends!
« on: September 05, 2015, 06:18:16 PM »
This is my first time going to dragoncon ever! I was hoping there were a few people to chill during panels and stuff while I wait for my friend's to get here. I pretty much love video games like smash bros and headstone and shows like Steven universe. If you wanna hang let me know! :D

Hi,

I'd like to revive this thread.   Backstory - I go to con with a group of friends, but we tend to have different interests when it comes to the events during Dragoncon.   I would like to find other people to (go to panels with, walk around, sit in line, drink with, game with, maybe even party the nights away)
I'll post some of my interests, and other people can do the same.   That way people can compare, and maybe start a conversation that can lead to "meeting at Dragoncon".

-CW tv shows(The 100, Arrow, Flash, Supernatural), Firefly, Game of Thrones, Westworld, Mad Max/Post Apoc type stuff, Some darker Anime, Horror
-Like to video game(Heroes of the Storm) mostly now, board games(from time to time), Are You a Werewolf
-Concerts, drinking, room parties, late night dances.

PM me on here, or just keep the thread going.

I would like to add to this post as well.  I am going, but will be going alone and would love to find people to hang with and even party.  I am a night owl and would love to party into the night, but with friends. I am a 40 year old woman who wants to see all of DCon.  I am an online gamer (League of legends, overwatch...),any games really, love Game of Thrones, walking dead, Sherlock to name a few.  Drinking is happening so lets party!  Send me a message and make this memorable

We're only 2 months out...,
Shouldn't Trathor, or Jojo or someone be setting this up soon?

I've missed the Meet & Greet last 2 years and I was pretty bummed about it.
HOPEFULLY..., I'll be able to make it this year.   Especially if it's not somewhere far away from the host hotels.

Rock on.

Hopefully I'll be able to make it.   But, I fear something might come up, and I won't be able to make it down until Friday morning.

We will see if I make it this year. I have a firm commitment on Thursday for another group already so if they conflict I cant go... :(

Is the meet and greet a standard thing every year? Is there a set location and time? My friend and I are coming on Thu night and staying at the Omni (only rooms we could find).
Thanks
