Convention Review No. 3 - Crossroads

Having returned from Jus in Bello, I had a couple of days to relax before I headed back up the M40 to Birmingham NEC, where I had been only ten days before, to the Crossroads convention.

I left Rome fairly confident that I had a dose of con-crud brewing; the hoarse voice, sore throat and headache were a dead giveaway, so having two days at home to do the sum total of not much was very welcome indeed.

I eventually hit the road on Friday lunchtime, and spent over three hours getting to Birmingham, thanks to traffic woes at either end of my journey (the 100 miles in the middle were a breeze!)

I was meeting up with my JIB cohorts, amberdreams, and heavenli24, together with the welcome additions of sasha_dragon, chellexxx, and andiivalo Unfortunate absentee xlittleangx was missed!

As I'd managed to download the season finale thagt morning, we had a little watch party in our room on the Friday evening, and that was a nice way to get in the mood for the weekend to come.

Starfury was a new experience or all of us.  They'd never run a Supernatural con before, and had stepped into the void left by Rogue, and generally, the con was great.  Much smaller than an Asylum convention, and infinitely better organised, sasha_dragon and I couldn't quite believe that we had all our autographs and most of our photos all done and finished by the end of the first day.
