Vancouver Convention 2009  
Home!! After I slept a few hours I even feel slightly human again! Yay. The journey back was exhausting… and the flight quite bumpy! As always, PCD is hitting me hard already :-( I wish I could have stayed longer in Vancouver, cause this city is sooo damn gorgeous!

But now… let’s talk about the con. I figured, if I don’t do my con report right away, I’ll never get to it *lol* So as always… not really details about the panels, but my personal experiences and impressions.



And, of course, I will start with Jared :D
First of all… I LIKED the outfit. I dunno why some ppl are complaining. He often wore the same black shirt at cons… then he wore his usual Sam outfit. And now, he finally mixes it up a bit, ppl again demand something else. Whatever… it's a personal taste thing. I liked it, it fit him and it looked great at the photo ops. :-)

Speaking of… first, we had the Jensen pic (which, as always, went down very uneventful for me)

"hi…"
*snap pic*
"thank you"
*smile*
"bye"

After that, the J2 sandwich pic was scheduled. And the first thing I noticed as I went up to the boys was “OMG Jared smells delicious” lol Seriously, I have no idea what aftershave that is, but he smelled so good. *ggg* (yeah, yeah, creepy stalker material right there… but hey, it’s true. And I didn’t sniffle at him in an obvious way! So, I think it’s ok *g*) Anyway… we took the pic… then I had a shared pic with faith_mars And that was it. It went by very quickly.

Though, as we were standing in line, some ppl had quite some “interesting ideas” for the pics.
There was one girl handing the boys plush hearts to pose with… and after the pic she said they could keep them. So, of course, they were goofing around with it, snuggling them to their chests or hitting each other with them… and then suddenly Jared opened his shirt and stuffed the heart under his shirt LOL Of course while doing it he giggled like a maniac the whole time! It was so adorable. And Jensen just looked at him and grinned along! Awww...
Then, there was another girl asking Jensen for a hug… which he, of course, agreed to. As she was done, the girl wandered off and Jared was like “wait... what about me??” LOL So, the girl went back… hugged Jared… and then hugged Jensen AGAIN before wandering off again LOL And Jared just stood there and laughed, while shaking his head… and he couldn’t stop laughing… he even doubled over b/c he was laughing so hard!! Of course we all had to laugh along with him.

After the J2 pic… I had my single Jared photo ops. The first pic was a standard pose-smile pic. For the second pic I turned to him and said that he could do whatever he wanted to do, I don’t have any special request. And he pondered a few seconds, bit on his lip (YES DAMNIT… so adorable… like he was thinking really hard to come up with something) and then he went all “ok… I’ll do goofy” LOL And man, the photographer had the best timing ever… cause he snapped the pic in the right moment! Jared looks utterly hilarious… and even I am laughing perfectly!!
After the pic was done he turned back to me and said “Heh. That will turn out great” And (like I do at every convention) I thanked him for coming and doing all this and he said "Of course... thank YOU"and rubbed my back while I wandered off.
*happy sigh*

Another thing that will never stop to amaze me (and YES, I know I mention it after every single convention… but only b/c it's true) is that Jared takes his time with the fans. Even when Creation tries to rush him through everything… he takes a step back, slows things down and doesn’t allow to be rushed.
Same with the autographs. Again, I did a special poster to get signed by everyone. (I actually already had it for Asylum, but it didn’t make sense to bring it along, since I had other stuff to get signed)
Anyway… Jensen was the first to sign it, and everything was just very rushed. He didn’t even look up or anything. But with Jared it was entirely different. The Creation person who handed Jared the poster, didn’t unroll it completely and just presented him the spot where he had to sign it. But Jared grabbed the other end and started to unroll it to take a closer look. He examined it for a few seconds and said “Wow…. this is pretty cool! Very cool” And he didn’t care for a second that the Creation stuff was trying to rush ppl through.

All other autograph sessions over the weekend went quite uneventful btw. There was a hold up in line, so I was lucky and had a few minutes to chat with A.J and Travis… which is always fun. Even A.J. personalized the poster and put a dedication on it… which he rarely ever did in the past. So that was pretty cool. And as Travis saw the poster for the first time he was “Whoa… that is freaking, freaky cool” LOL

Misha was also very nice at the autograph session and personalized stuff although he seemed so damn tired. Poor Misha.

Man, I am writing all this in the wrong order! Sorry. But there were so many things over the weekend and I just write them down as they come to me.

Anyway… my Aldis photo op was special. As I went up to him he opened up his arms, took a step towards me and said “Oh hey there…” and pulled me into a hug for the picture!! LOL I was truly perplexed at first, b/c he greeted me like an old friend. lol But the picture turned out so good, and since I never ask for hug pictures, I was positively surprised. So that was pretty sweet and great.

And a general statement about the photo ops:
I LOVED that everyone was standing. It’s “weird” that for some conventions the boys request to be seated and for some others they don’t, huh? But I am so glad that they very standing, that’s also part why the pics turned out so great! Imho…

Dessert party:
Let’s see… we had Jake, Misha, Richard, Travis and A.J at our table. Except for Jake and Richard, the other visits were very short. :-/ But there were a lot of ppl and so they had to rush the stars through.
Oh… Richard even talked about the “slight” mess that was Asylum… and how hectic everything was and how different it is compared to the US cons. It was clear that he didn’t like it either due to the stress.
Even Jared and Jensen talked about the “hugeness” that was Asylum. They didn’t say a bad thing or anything, but you could tell that it was damn hectic, even for them.

What else… what else…?
Oh some short stories from the location tour.
Russ and Brittney were awesome and shared so many backstage stories (and man, I seriously should have written something down b/c I just can remember a few)

A prank Jensen pulled on Jared:
One time on set, Jared took a nap on a sofa. And Jensen passed by, saw him and started to cover him with all kinds of stuff that was lying around. At the end, he even put a chair on top of Jared – without him even noticing or waking up! LOL As Jared finally woke up some time later he was still a little drowsy and went all “what the hell” LOL

Also, Brittney told some classic "Jared + farting" stories and how he likes to torture ppl on set with that. (basically, this topic was an all-weekend-theme lol Almost everyone mentioned it at some point LOL ) Guess Jared really earned his “Fartacus” title! lol

Also… remember the time Kim pulled the prank on the boys with the water? At the season wrap party, they got him back and poured water over him… By the end of the evening Kim looked like a bathed rat! *g*

Gah… I think that’s it for now. I am sure there will be a follow up post with more stuff from and about the con. And I still have some stuff I need to get sorted and uploaded.

But so far… yeah… that was the first Vancouver convention. And it was absolutely fabulous and everything I expected and hoped for. Yet alone the location tour and being able to stand in the exact same spots they were filming at was an experience I am very thankful for and will never forget.

And now... I will get more sleep. LOL "A few hours" was def. not enough!

Sounds fabulous! I'm so glad you had a wonderful time!

I am really glad that we decided to do this con after all!! :-) It was truly worth all the money.

LOL that Jensen prank on Jared. That's like SO random! Adorable XD

So Jensen was like at Asylum? Didn't even look up? Or hardly at least? Guuuh. When I got my things signed there he looked up REAL fast and "hi" and then it was done. Jared took his time, looked up, smiled and accepted to shake my hand... ah well XD

I AM jelaous of you!! But... can you blame me? lol
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2009 08:34 am (UTC)
I love such random stories about the boys :D

And yeah... at least with our group it was similar like Asylum. Sign - done - sign - done. But I think it's also the fault of Creation. They wanted to rush ppl through.

You didn't expect Aldis to be that friendly? Do you not remember my picture from LA?

Glad everything went well all around.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2009 09:24 am (UTC)
of course I did expect him to be friendly - you know, all smiley and stuff! But I have no idea what triggered his special friendliness towards me b/c he didn't do the hugging thing with everyone. So that's why I was surprised! LOL And it just made me love him even more!!! *heart*
Jennifer: Jared Girldaydreamer1984 on September 2nd, 2009 10:16 pm (UTC)
that is all soo awesome! I always love your Jared stories cause they are so awesome and make me love him more!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2009 09:25 am (UTC)
I am so glad that all my experiences with Jared are so awesome and positive *heart* But really...not a surprise, huh? He just is THAT friendly and awesome... period :)
nila_renanila_rena on September 2nd, 2009 10:32 pm (UTC)
More! More! More! *g*

Schlaf gut!

I'm so glad that you had a nice experience. I wish we had more time @ Asylum. But yeah... Anyway can't wait to talk to you ;)

*hugs*
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2009 09:26 am (UTC)
As you see... your inbox gets flooded with msgs from me... since I am working my way through all the comments from the last week!! *lol*

:D You do not intend on going to Asylum next year, do you?
Susan: Jared - Trampoline ASS!nyaubaby on September 7th, 2009 09:39 am (UTC)
Are you kidding me?

No, I'm not going next year. NO WAY!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2009 10:44 am (UTC)
Gooood!! Just checking!

I just can't understand why the event is already sold out! I mean... seriously, ppl??? First bitching like whoa and then buying tickets again? I don't get it.
Susan: Jared - Trampoline ASS!nyaubaby on September 7th, 2009 10:51 am (UTC)
Well maybe there WERE people who actually enjoyed the chaos :)

I'm thinking of going to the Rome con. BUT I'm like duh... I can't justify spending more money on cons.
I don't know :)
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2009 04:07 pm (UTC)
I think that's just a rumour that ppl actually enjoyed the chaos... LOL or they are very, very strange ppl LOL I mean, even Jared, Jensen and Richard pointed Asylum out by themselves... that's not a good sign.

Uh yeah... Rome! The line-up is great... but man, it's one week after LA and I don't really have a way to get there. So yeah... even if it's that close... I dunno. :-/

You sound like you could sleep for a week! Glad you had such an awesome time!

This is the rumor going through the internet regarding photo ops. (http://rasah.livejournal.com/301066.html) One thing I really wanted to tell you though - my friend and I were talking to Russ about the con, asking him if he'd enjoyed it etc. (he and some of the crew popped in on Saturday and Sunday), and for reasons I can't remember we mentioned to him that the photo ops lasted longer than usual this time and he told us that was because Jensen (and Jared too, but Jensen was apparently pretty strict about it) insisted on more time, mostly due to Asylum (I guess) - where they felt the fans didn't get the experience they'd paid for. Apparently they both hated the speed the photo-ops in particular were done and have now put their foot down. Apparently Jensen is now insisting (for the next Creation cons) they either sell fewer tickets or allow more time.

Honestly I hope that is the case.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 8th, 2009 10:14 am (UTC)
haha... yeah, I guess I really needed a week full of sleep! I was in bed by 8 pm yesterday!! LOL

And yeah... I did read that. And honestly, I also think it's true. There was just a different tone to the photo ops this time around!! It was way more relaxed.
sn_143snsn_143sn on September 3rd, 2009 04:45 am (UTC)
sounds like you had a wonderful Time. Post your poster. lol I would love to see what everyone is aw'ing over. And Jared sounds so sweet :D
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 8th, 2009 10:15 am (UTC)
It was the best time I had for a while! I really needed that kind of vacation :))
And heh... well, we'll see. Maybe I'll take a pic of the poster and post it :)
superwickedsuperwicked on September 3rd, 2009 09:21 am (UTC)
Oh seriously, this is the report I've been waiting for!

Such fun stories you have to share, thanks for that! Good to know that ppl did get a good time with Jared at the autographs and at the photo-ops!

Will you perhaps share your photo-op pics?


Thanks for this, I'm so glad to read that you had a marvelous time after Asylum!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 8th, 2009 10:18 am (UTC)
Awww thank you so much for commenting. Glad you enjoyed this report! :-)) I also always enjoy such reports... that's why I wanted to share my personal experiences as well.

Well, honestly, I am not found of the idea to post my photo ops in public cause we all know then they will be broadcasted around the whole web. So, I am sorry, but I guess I won't be posting them in a public post

Thanks again for reading and commenting!! *heart*
superwickedsuperwicked on September 9th, 2009 02:21 pm (UTC)

So you can write it, but can't say it, huh? LOL Cute! *gg*
yvonnegosyvonnegos on December 31st, 2009 02:42 am (UTC)
I think it's an adorable image, picturing Jensen walking by Jared, thinking, oh he's sleeping..I'm gonna pile stuff on him. Then very carefully and gently putting everything he can on top of him. ;D I had never heard that story! ;D
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on January 12th, 2010 05:19 pm (UTC)
yeah, i think it was the first time ever someone revealed that story. And I am sure the boys would have never told it... so thank God for the location tour and the chatty and nice Britney! :)
