Anime Iowa & The Aftermath

iamthebandersnatch:

      Last weekend exploded with awesome.

image

The location, the people, the weather, the endless access to pie at Perkins.

Awesome.

image

I didn’t realize how much I missed cosplaying and attending a con without the added stress of the artist alley. 

It’s just one big party all weekend. 

image

      Of course on the drive home

Whilst pausing at a gas station

[[after driving two hours without gps 

the sort of wrong way]]

[[Which wasn’t so bad

because I love road trips

and driving and my inner Dean Winchester

guided me home]]

image

Blair [[still decked up as Cas]] discovered someone stole her phone and laptop [[brand new, hard earned]] 

image

All details aside.

It sucks. A lot. And watching Cas cry—-

It’s just wrong

image

     On many levels. 

          We finally arrive home

To an apartment newly cleaned of bed bugs

[[yuk— but no, it wasn’t us]]

[[old place + vermin in walls = creepy crawlies]]

image

And our shit spread out everywhere

And in desperate need of organizing 

We move the stuff back around

And I turn on my computer

My precious little computer with all the art and work and collections and memories and love for the last two years

CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED

Basically, Windows 8 murdered my computer

image

and I hadn’t backed up in…

too long [[I know, I know, dumbass]]

So I wiped everything. Started new.

No art, no sketches, no brushes, no GIFS. Nothing

Three weeks before my next artist alley con.

I just keep telling myself

At least my little brother wasn’t the vessel of Lucifer

image

At least I don’t have to deal with Angel-Identity-Crisis’

image

There’s no threat of Apocalypse [yet]

image

And I still make a mean sandwich. 

image

Love you guys. 

Thanks for reading this stupidly long post. 

Can’t wait to see you again. 

Let’s Eat Pie,
