Rising Con: Weekend Report  
Ole Ole Ole Ole Oleeeeee!!!

Wow... where to begin. I guess, with being at ten conventions before, I have to say this was one of the most fun weekends of all. If you love to go to conventions as well, this was one you def. didn’t want to miss.
The handling from the whole Rising Son team was very good. It was their very first con – so it was really impressive what they did (as compared to some organizers who just don’t get it… even after YEARS of doing cons)

But not only the organizing was great… it also seemed that the guests were very relaxed and had an awesome time. Esp. Jared and Jensen. It’s been a while since I’ve seen them SO happy-go-lucky and goofy on stage. Their chemistry with all the jokes and banter was spot on and they communicated without words… like when they were goofing off on stage it only took a glance from Jared or Jensen to the other one and they were doing something funny again. Same at the photo ops. When someone requested a funny pic, they didn’t really agree upon something, they just looked at each other, smiled and then went for it – and still ended up in sync. (my friends even have an HILARIOUS photo op to prove that loool )

(ETA: Oh and I have to mention again that I LOVED the fact that Jensen pointed out the awesome and serious questions ppl asked. He was highly impressed by it. So, congratulations fandom!! \o/ )

Our seats weren’t that great…. but in the end it didn’t matter at all. There were four huge video walls in the room and you were even allowed to go up to the side of the stage and take pictures. So, at the last panel we went up there (and stayed there) and had a great view.

Photo Ops:
I only did two photo ops this time. Jared and the group shot with all guests.
Both pics were on Saturday – and it was just awesome that the guys were STANDING \o/ Which, I think, never happened before at an European con. (besides the first Asylum one of course)
Jared was relaxed and goofy as always. He tried to exchange a few words with everyone (at least that’s what I’ve witnessed while waiting in line)
A funny story: A girl in front of us had her phone still in her hands as she went up to him and posed for the pic. And Jared saw it and was all “Oh you wanna put that away? Otherwise it will be on the picture” And she was all hectic and didn’t know what to do… so he said “Hey give it to me” And he took the phone and stuffed it into the front pocket of his jeans lol
And after the pic was done the girl smiled happily up to him and walked away… forgetting her phone. It took a few seconds before Jared called after hey “heeeyy… you want your phone back?” LOOL It was hilarious!!!

As it was my turn, I went up to him and greeted him… and he said “Hello” And put his arm around me while pulling me close so that the side of my head was pressing against the side of his neck. And then we were standing there and looked at the photographer who seemed to be occupied with some changes on his camera, ergo, he wasn’t ready for taking the pic. And Jared started talking again (and remember, I was still standing there with his arm around me lol ) He was all “So, how are you?” And of course I did the whole polite thing with “Very well… and how are you” and he was all “Me too. A bit hot though” And I was just thinking OH YES!!!
Also, I was VERY AWARE of all the muscles in his back. Nggghhh.
Then the photographer was finished and took the pic. :-) I’m quite happy with it b/c we both are literally beaming on the picture :-)))
As I walked away I thanked him and he turned back to me and said “Sure, of course” And paused and added “Always”
Awww I was melting as I left the photo op room. No matter how often I meet this guy, it seems I fall in love all over again when he as much as looks at me.

For the group shot (I shared with thescenery) we were brainstorming ideas. We knew that we didn’t want to do a normal smile picture b/c it needed to be something special and fun. But we just couldn’t quite settle on an idea.
And then angels_cordy suggested that it would be fun that we were the stars on the picture. (hey, because, after all WE ARE, right? lol ) And then in the end we did an “oh you guys are the adoring fangirls and we are the stars” picture.
I’m telling you, it is HILARIOUS and it seems I cant stop staring at it. All of them went nuts, standing behind us and we were sitting in the front row looking all bored and snobby lol Hilarious.
I also gotta admit, I will not post the picture. You know I love you guys, but you know how it is with such photo ops. They ALWAYS end up SOMEWHERE. And I think the pic is just too precious to be floating around everywhere. It’s something I wanna keep for myself – with all the stupid and funny faces they make.

There were no Jared and Jensen autographs included in our weekend pass. But it was okay. I have so many of them already that I didn’t feel the urge to buy some extra tickets. So, no autograph session for me with the guys. I did have tickets for Samantha and Jim but I ended up only getting a Jim autograph b/c Samantha just doesn’t interest me.
So yeah, and the Jim autograph was very unspectacular as well. Ergo, no story to tell.

Yeah, so… in conclusion. It was an AWESOME WEEKEND and I had sooo much fun with my girls angels_cordy and thescenery Esp. on the last evening we were hanging out with two Finish girls and I think I haven’t laughed that much in YEARS!! (THE SPINNING TOOLS!! WOOOH) Sorry… that was an inside joke lol

Anyway… I’m sooo glad we had this spurt of a moment idea and went to this convention. It was such a fun weekend. *smooches T and K some more*

And last but not least I finally got to meet jeeronie. It didn’t work out at the JIB con, so it was a pleasure to finally see her in Spain!! And she is just a sweetie!! So, it was awesome that I finally got to say hi in real life!!

Yep, guess that’s it. I’m still writing on my Q&A report of Jared’s Meeting Room session. But I hope I’ll have it up very soon :)

Two more pics: (and I wont upload any of my videos b/c there are already all videos floating around somewhere. ;) )

Thanks honey! I have fallen in love with jared all over again just from reading the reports and watching the vids! So glad you had a great time!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 06:42 pm (UTC)
Awww thank you sweetie!! <33 Though, I guess it's not very hard to fall for the guy over and over and over again, is it? *happy dreamy sigh* I'm still all in my little Jared-bubble although the con was two weeks ago... lol
crazylillycrazylilly on June 17th, 2010 09:51 am (UTC)
Das klingt wirklich nach einer Menge Spass. Und immer wenn ich Deine Berichte lese, dann weiß ich wieder warum ich Jared so mag :).

Vielleicht sollte ich doch mal das Geld für eine Con ausgraben. Mal sehen.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 06:45 pm (UTC)
Ja, das war mitunter wirklich eine der besten Cons überhaupt. Und es zeigt mal wieder, dass man nicht immer die teuersten Tickets braucht. Wenn die Con gut organisiert ist, ist der Sitzplatz echt nebensächlich denn man bekommt trotzdem alles super mit! :))

Und du weißt ja meine Meinung dazu :-D Du musst def. mal auf eine Con. Ich mein so manche Stadt eignet sich ja auch gut als Familienurlaubsziel *cough* Rome *cough*

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 06:46 pm (UTC)

The muscles on Jared's back, rawrrrrrrrrrrr
Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 06:47 pm (UTC)
IKR? I mean, by now I should know what to expect... and yet, it takes me by surprise (in a very good way) every single time LOL I bet in Vancouver I will again be all "OMG MUSCLES" ROFL

Thank you for reading :)

sounds awesome!! lol Jensen needs to shave!

awww booo i wanted to see the pic! But understand why you don't wanna post it
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 06:48 pm (UTC)
Oh I SO AGREE on Jensen having to shave. It looks just aweful. Waaaay to scruffy :-( And it makes him look way older than he acutally is.

Re: Thanks!
Hi Úrsula,

wow... I'm feeling very honored by this comment. Thank you that you read through all of my rambling report. And again THANK YOU ALL for such a wonderful con and weekend. As said, it was my 11th convention, but it was def. one of the best ones I've been to!! And that really says a lot!!

jeeroniejeeronie on June 17th, 2010 03:51 pm (UTC)
You've been to 10 conventions? O.O
I thought the boys were amazing as well (I'm trying to write something about the Con but words fail me LOL) and the whole atmosphere was just fiesta!
Your photo was great, but I understand I'm still wondering whether to post mine or not, I don't much like the idea :/

Huh, still teasing about the Q&A, LOL.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 06:58 pm (UTC)
I'm finally starting to work my way through LJ and all the comments. Big Bang kinda took over the last week.... lol

Yep, 10 conventions. Crazy, right? LOL I started back in 2007 and I never thought that it would go so "out of hands" But I really enjoyed it and it was just a great time. Def. don't want to miss it.

I still have to check out your journal. While scrolling through my flist I saw quite some entries I'd love to comment on. But time always prevented me from it *sigh* But the comments will come :-))

Tanja: Heart Sammyangels_cordy on June 17th, 2010 03:51 pm (UTC)

Sounds like a very awesome weekend indeed. And Jared sounds really cute. Hopefully I'll be able to meet him some day too.

Oh, I was looking forward to see that group pic. But your reason for not sharing is totally understandable. It'll always be something special for you.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 07:03 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, I hope so too!! What about Italy next year? Any plans you might can come as well? :-)

And I'm glad you understand. I posted some fun photo ops in the past and then shortly after they popped up EVERYWHERE *sigh*
(Amanda): Sam YES gif aka scoresnchick12 on June 17th, 2010 04:39 pm (UTC)
aww i'm glad you had an awesome time :)
awesome report :)
and while of course i would love to see the pic
i COMPLETELY understand of why you are not posting it
you described it and i saw irt in my head and i think it is way cool you have something like that to treasure
photo ops are personal and if you want to share then you want to share up to the person who photo ops they belong too :)
glad you had a blast :)
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 07:06 pm (UTC)
Awww thank you very much for reading and commenting, hon :-))

And yeah, also thank you for understanding about the pictures *hugs*

It really was a blast!!! Def. one of the best cons I've ever been to \o/
WeHo M.: SPN - YAY!afrocurl on June 17th, 2010 04:53 pm (UTC)
Ooh, sounds great!

Now, where are your photo ops, M? I want to see the final result.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 07:09 pm (UTC)
It really was!!! :) Overall just a kick-ass and fun weekend.

And sorry, since I had quite some bad experiences in the past, there won't be a photo op post this time :-/
Heidi: jared omgsqueeheizqu on June 17th, 2010 05:10 pm (UTC)
Thanks for sharing! So glad to hear you had such a great time. :)
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 07:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you sweetie!! Glad you enjoyed reading the report :)
dolnmoon: J2 fangirl squeedolnmoon on June 17th, 2010 06:05 pm (UTC)
I'm so excited for you that when I read things I actually sorta squeed a little bit okay a lot.. lol

I love Jared so much and will meet him one day even if I have to wait another year to save up I want the same type of experience.

Jared just seems like he's such a special type of person, very connected to the person he's with.

I must admit I was saddened that you don't want to share your photo but I totally understand. It's your special moment and no one should be taking that and spreading it around without your permission. I'll just day dream about what it looks like. I have a good imagination. lol

Can't wait to read your q&a post.. I'm too excited for this. lol
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 07:15 pm (UTC)
Awww you are adorable :))

And I really, really hope you'll have the opportunity to meet Jared one day as well!! It's just such a great and unique experience!!

Jared just seems like he's such a special type of person, very connected to the person he's with.

I absolutely agree with this. He also literally vibrates "positive energy" and it is just not possible to not feel good and happy while being around him.

Yeah, I am sorry. But I'm glad you understand. I posted some photo ops in the past and like five minutes later they were everywhere :-/ But hey, since your imagination is so kick-ass I'm sure that wont be a problem for you to see it before your inner-eye *gg*

OMG! Die Phone story ist ja echt lustig. Klingt als hättet ihr jede Menge Spaß gehabt.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 26th, 2010 07:16 pm (UTC)
Ja gell? Irgendwie so typisch Jared LOL
Danke für's Lesen und Commenten!! :-))

RIGHT?? I didn't think it was possible. I expected WAY more chaos. But everything went so smoothly, it's almost scary. Maybe they made some deal with a red-eyed-demon? Hmmmm.

Awww and shut up LOL My eyes are perfectly normal-sized lol Yep. Totally. I mean, 100% absolutely lol
