I had such a good time at [community profile] vividcon this past weekend, my first and last time attending. I got to see some old friends again for the first time in a while, and I  met a lot of great vidders and vid-watchers I had only known online or through their work, and everyone who I didn't already know was extremely welcoming. There were many tears over the course of the weekend, particularly from people who were long-time attendees, and while I felt the bittersweetness of it (and cried buckets at several point during Premieres), for me the experience overall was a delight from start to finish.

Do you remember what Guinan tells Picard about the Nexus in Star Trek: Generations? "It was like being inside joy." For me, that was VividCon, and above all Club Vivid, one of the best nights of my life. Seeing my last Club Vivid premiere live from inside the room, and having people applaud for it, was truly wonderful. For that in particular I have to thank [personal profile] absolutedestiny, whose skill as a VJ is mind-boggling. 

All good things must come to an end, but I am incredibly grateful that I got to experience this good thing for myself before its time ended. I said in the final wrap-up panel that I know the Force is with us, and I look forward to seeing the continuing art and people of VividCon further on up the road, particularly at [personal profile] fanworkscon. Until then, godspeed, rebels.
