Saturday I went to the Elf Fantasy Fair and it was just amazing! At first I was a bit afraid of the weather because they predicted 95% chance of rain and it could storm, but we only had twice about ten minutes of rain. The sun even shined for a while!
I saw such beautiful things on the fair. A lot of pretty clothes but all very expensive and cine I try to lose a bit of weight, I didn't bought anything. No, that's a lie. I bought a moonkin action figure from World of Warcraft (MMORPG). 90 % of the people were dressed up, it was so amazing and almost everyone looked so beautiful! I saw Voldemort, Queen Amidala, Daenerys Stormborn (whom was in love with Theon Greyjoy). I saw Jon Snow from afar. I looked for him during the fair, since he looked so much like Kit Harington and I wanted to ask him if he wanted to take me with him to the wall. I saw a dragon, a a lot of different kinds of elves and vampires and I am sure there was an Ezio or 10 running around. One of the most amazing costumes I saw, was someone dressed up as a Satyr. It was such a beautiful costume!
The main reason why I wanted to go the fair (beside tat it is just absolutely awesome) was Christopher Paolini. He was giving a lecture (well more like a talk) and afterwards was the signing. He is such an amazing storyteller and he is so funny! I really enjoyed his talk and I asked a question as well. I asked what his opinion is about fanfiction and he said that it is amazing that fans like authors work enough to write in it themselves. Some authors even started by writing fanfiction. There is still hope for me! He also said that it is ridiculous that some authors are against it. Seems we have the same opinion on that. It's selfish not to let your fans work with you world. Robin Hobb, you are arrogant and selfish!
After the talk I had to wait two hours to get my book signed! I was glad he signed everyone's book since normally he only would be signing an hour. It would gone a lot faster if he hadn't talked to everyone. But he is such a nice person! Wish he would take me to his home (since he lives in the middle of nowhere!)
Christopher Paolini asking my name to personalize the autograph.
Newt year, or perhaps even in September, I want to go again. And this time I want to go dressed up properly, and not as a Gryffindor!
