I am a 23 year old tv/book/movie lover who travels to conventions and works with actors. I also work in auction warehouses with cool thinks like the Loki helmet. I also waitress. My convention job is my favorite though.
So I guess you just donated to see your name on a wall? That’s really weird. And I’m concerned for you.
I get being a little disappointed that your name wasn’t up there, and maybe I shouldn’t talk because mine was up there, but REALLY? You’re going to weigh how much TNM appreciates us by whether or not they managed to put all the donator’s names on a wall?
What about, ohhhhh, the free venue where we could kick our feet up (THE ONLY PLACE IN SAN DIEGO IT FEELS LIKE BECAUSE NOBODY ELSE WANTS YOU TO BE ABLE TO SIT ANYWHERE!) and enjoy a drink and have a conversation (AGAIN…it’s nearly impossible to find somewhere to have a conversation at Comic-Con without Nerd HQ)?
What about the volunteers who ran themselves ragged answering our questions, giving us free bags, helping us figure out where to go, directing us in panel lines, making sure as many of us got to ask questions at the panels as possible, greeting us like they’re happy to see us even when they’re probably like “BED COUGH DROPS COFFEE ICE CREAM BED” in their heads?
What about the free photobooths?
And the free video game demos?
What about the FREE party they threw that lasted all the way until 2 in the morning? Oh, and P.S., it wasn’t like they just turned music on and went “Kay thanks bye!” They were all THERE. From Zac himself, to Missy Peregrym, to Shekinah, to Retta, to Zachary Quinto (for a bit), to ALL of the volunteers/coordinators. And they were there pretty much ALL NIGHT. That party was for us.
Oh, wait. What about the FREE Nerd HQ app for your smartphone? The app that was totally free. A free app. The free app that then enabled you to also receive a FREE interactive wristband that would connect you to social media? Free. All of this free. FREE.
Smiles for Smiles where you get to take a picture with some of your favorite celebrities? Remember that part? And it’s only $20 and goes to Operation Smile? Remember?
And then there are the panels in small, intimate rooms with celebrities so close you almost feel like you can reach out and touch them? Panels where you don’t have to wait in a line of 150 people who are aching to ask the panelists questions. True, each panel is $22…but that’s also what your average T-shirt costs at Target. Target T-Shirt? Intimate panel with awesome and oftentimes famous people. Target T-Shirt? Panel. T-Shirt? ….you get it?
I don’t know if you do.
Because you’re so hung up on the fact that not every single name of every single person who donated to the indiegogo fundraiser got put on the Wall of Honor…that you’re forgetting every other fantastic and wonderful thing the people at TNM did for us this last YEAR, let alone the last 4 days. There’s more stuff they did for us that I didn’t even include in this because I could write a novel about it.
Think about why you actually donated to the #IWantMyNerdHQ cause all those months ago, write a 5000 word essay apologizing for your incredibly stupid anonymous message you just sent to me. And have it on my desk in the morning.

Marc Guggenheim, answering TV Fanatic’s question (at 2014 San Diego Comic Con), “Will we see Oliver have a challenge in being truthful and honest with her, or is that part of the attraction? That he can be honest and truthful with her?” (via smoakandarrow)
Never hang out with anyone who says “feminist” the same way Draco Malfoy says “mudblood”.
This is the best way to explain this.
never hang out with anyone who says “men” the same way malfoy says “mudblood” either
Never hang out with anyone who says anything like “mudblood”
unless it’s “vegetables”
Bruce Wayne watched both of his parents die.
Tony Stark has heart problems and anxiety.
Peter Parker saw his uncle being murdered.
