"I'd love to know what your ultimate convention line-up would be, from any fandom you've ever loved either still on the air or not. What questions would you like to ask certain guests, what would you have them sign, how would you pose in photo ops? Would you pair up certain guests on panels or have all solo ones? And lastly, you are given three private meet&greets, just you and the guest for an hour. Who do you choose?"
Wow. This is kind of a hard question for me to answer, because while I definitely enjoy imagining that my favorite stars are all I want them to be, after going through the intense disillusionment of really getting to know my favorite musician, I can't help but be pretty cynical about the reality of these things, fearful that even if they seemed perfect at first, they'd wind up disappointing me.
Moreover, some extremely talented actors/writers/directors aren't very interesting in person! So they might not be that fun to see at a con. I SOO loved milly_gal
's answer to this question; I literally could copy and paste everything she said there and it would answer this fairly perfectly, but that's a cop-out, so I'll try to answer myself--just know it'd be better if milly'd written it. ;->
I'd love to see Bendydick Cumabunch and of course my Hiddles in addition to all our SPN boys and girls. Also, DYLAN O'BRIEN. I would ask them questions about their process and how they got SO DAMN GOOD at acting!! And I'd ask them how they handle fame and expectations and what that's like.
I might not have them sign anything (I'm not big on autographs), but I would love to have photo ops--ideally, a J2 sandwich, and a Jared/Misha (Padlins) sandwich, with me as the meat! *drooool*
I'd mostly like to see people solo on panels, but I'd also like to pair up J2, because they riff off each other so well.
As for the meet-and-greets, first, I'd want to meet Misha, because he baffles me. I'd want to ask him about his goals and his dreams, what his secret goal is with all the wackiness he engages in. He's the kind of guy who seems like he has layers and layers of agendas, MOST of them pretty generous and aimed at making the world a better place, but I'd like to hear in his words what that world would look like, what his vision involves.
Second, I'd meet with Yuki Kajiura, a brilliant Japanese musician who scores a lot of animes. I'd love to learn more about her process and inspirations, what makes her tick.
Third, I guess I'd meet with the people primarily involved in creating Revolutionary Girl Utena, because that show blew my mind and continues to awe and bewilder me, and I'd just love to know wtf they were thinking when they came up with all that.
Such a fun questions! Thanks for asking 'em, vyperdd
