It’s nearly time for Nine Worlds 2015! And I’m going to be there! \o/
I’ll be a part of two panels, which are:
OMG WTF: RPF?! Our panel explores real person fiction – Friday 8.30pm – 9.45pm
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? We delve into the past and present of real person fiction.
Emily January, Viktoriya, Pensnest, Melissa T.
They used what?”- historical research for fanfiction – Sunday 10.00am – 11.15am, Room 12 (with Fanfic)
Writing fanfiction set in a historical period can involve a great deal of research. (Possibly more than has been done by canon creators, in some cases!) And writing historical AUs can be a great way of unpacking the unspoken prejudices of a modern-day canon. Research can be immensely diverting, it can spark a renewed interest in history, and it can affect the course and content of your story. This panel will discuss how historical AUs open up some canons, and share some of the more interesting facets of their own research into various historical periods.
Panel with Tanya Brown, AL Johnson, Tony Keen, Kari Sperring, Melissa T.
I’m moderating this one! It’s my first time moderating, but I’m sure it’ll go well – just look at my fellow panellists!
So I’m really looking forward to these! I think they’ll both be really fun and I can’t wait!
If you’re also at the con, please do come up and say hi! I’ll probably Instagram outfits, or at least my shoes (I promise, they shall be shiny and unmissable!), or of course I’ll be wearing a name badge!
I was going to bring along fic recs, but then I wasn’t sure if Explicit rated fics would be ok, and also it turns out I have quite a lot, so here they are instead:
