Same, I really enjoyed it last year ^^ I would definitely go if they had another one.
I heard that it was the most people that had ever showed up to a deviantmeet, so I really hope they have it again :>

Hey there, i got a response from admin Wrecking, and he said that although there is no plan for one yet, we can garner interest in the community and post journals, and encourage others to do so as well so we may have one ;D    as well as encouraging some idea storms of viable locations, since last year we saw how large the turnout was, im sure someone in seattle has a better spot, if not the convention center itself.   should be awesome!  (we must aim for a good season, i know the beautiful sun that day helped the motivation of us seattle urchins, haha)

Actually, I live way down in Oregon, but drove up to the meet because I was that determined to go 8-) But I'll try talking to people that showed up to the meet and try to get some community interest.

I was going, and then I got a horrendous head cold that I'm still fighting with. Trust me, you don't want this, so I'm unfortunately having to stay home... Damnit...

Thanks, me too. I was seriously looking forward to going today. This is like "once in a lifetime" type thing. I know the likelihood of another DA meet in Seattle is slim to none and I really wanted to go. Judging from other comments, I'm not the only one. I seriously hope you guys do another DA meet in this area, maybe the next one could be in Tacoma?

I'm going to Tacoma then rushing to Olympia. I don't have time for this. WHY? My friend's going to be in Seattle but she has to go to a stupid comedian. My brother who lives in Seattle needs to come for me. But I haven't gotten into contact with him. WHY does this happen to me? :(

So, my dearies, I will be there selling Homestuck commissions, $3 (message me for details!). I'll be in my Rage shirt, with the rage symbol on the front and the word "RAGE" on the back in purple(the design is cracked, by the way!), and skinny jeans. Please, even if you don't want to buy a commission, come find me! My name is Samii. I love meeting people!

I really wanted to go to this since it is a home town meet for me, but it was very bad timing to have it the weekend before Sakura Con. I will not be able to attend.

I do live in Seattle. But I'm also worried that it will be uneventful and I'll just be left sitting around doing nothing, like what happens at conventions. :/
