But anyway. Everyone who was supposed to arrive on Wednesday, did, despite the party train being late.
Those of us who arrived not on the train (dubbed by MG as "the Nine", because creatively, there were 9 of us :P--me, Mandy, Regina, Fenryng, Mormont, Peadar, Tenalpia, Pebble, and Pat) had dinner at a pizza place at a square that was not on my map, so I wandered all over trying to find it, madly sending texts to Mandy which I'm sure I will find out cost me an arm and a leg once I get my phone bill. But we eventually found each other and everyone else was mostly pizza'd when arrived, but I had pizza, and some beer, and then we went to a pub and had some more beer and/or cider, and then we went to the hotel, found the train people, split up again (since some of the train people had not eaten yet), went to the Reno party, had more beer, went to the bar, had some drinks (noticing a pattern here?), then the hotel bar started setting up for breakfast and we left and got some glorious sleep.
Now Luga and I are off to registration, so no more updates for a while.

"The Werewolves of Brigadoon" was intersting. GRRM and Keri Sperring were debating about the value of Fiction set within the historic framework of Celtic History. Ms. Sperring hates reading fiction that gets the history incorrect. GRRM thought she was missing the point. Works like The Mists of Avalon are fiction after all. That those works lead people to correct scholarly works to give them the real history of the stories they are reading. Peadar agreed. It was a lively discussion. Nothing ASOIAF was mentioned.

Also some cool pictures with GRRM in one of them, Gaiman in a couple of others (with Mr. X in the background of one of them).

But the panel about John M. Ford was also very touching and very inspiring. There were a few times I was a bit teary eyed (but don't tell anyone I said that). Here's a description of itfrom someone else.
