Zines Available

Just so folks know, I've still got some copies of the "Erotic Harry Potter" zine left to sell. It features the readers from the Quimby's Erotic Harry Potter night, plus a little art by Venturous and oldenuf2b. So that's Alchemia Dent and Bugland, Gateway Girl, Kabal, Mijan, Bronze Ribbons/Mechaieh, and myself! Slashy, smutty goodness, with some H/D, some Snarry, some H/D/S, a Snape/Lupin, and a Hermione/Everyone. :-)

It's $7.

I'll be carrying some copies in my bag except maybe at the Ball, where my schoolbag really doesn't match my dress...

I'm also selling "Five Zines for Five Bucks," a collection of five minibooks I made from my own fics and drabbles, two H/D, two Snarry, and one Snaco. The Snaco is never-before-published!

Shuttle, anyone?

I'm arriving at O'Hare at 1:29 PM on Wednesday, August 6th...is anyone arriving around the same time who would like to share a shuttle to the Hilton?  It's $19.00 for 2 people and $14.00 for 3 or more.  Also, I'll be leaving around 5:00/30ish AM on Tuesday, August 12th, and would be more than happy to share a shuttle with someone then, too!  Let me know!

My Terminus countdown clock says...1 day, 19 hours, 7 minutes, & 57 seconds until my plane leaves!  YIPPEE!

Shuttle from O'Hare to the Hilton

Hello fellow H/D-ers!

A group of us are looking to book our own shuttle from O'Hare to the Hilton Wednesday, August 6 at around 11 a.m. (could be pushed to 11:30 if needed). If we get 6 more people we can book our own van... so if anyone is landing between 10 and 11 (or, heck, earlier -- gossymer will be hanging around for three + hours, if you want a buddy!) and wants to travel to the Hilton with us, comment or email! (my username @ gmail.com)

Cost would be about $13 a person, and you'd get to make your journey with a bunch of bouncy fellow H/D-ers :) (me, kriken, gossymer and titti)

We're also taking a shuttle BACK, Monday night at 4:30 p.m., if anyone is also leaving the Hilton at that time.

Terminus Badges & HP Icons

I did some super last minute badges for Terminus. If anyone is interested in them, they can get them off of Zazzle over here

Each badge/button can be as small as 1inch or even 4 inches big - and either square or round :)

I also made most of the them into icons for use on lj too :)

Icons over here

Edit: BTW, 2 H/D badges are not up there 'cause they're going into the goodie bag :) If you have any quotes/ideas for H/D buttons, feel free to share 'cause I can totally make them later today *runs off to bed*

handy-dandy maps!

This is how to get from the hotel to the H/D meet-up! You will pass by the Art Institute (two stone lions guarding the front... how appropriate!) and then you will see two, tall weird fountains depicting people's faces... children will probably be running around and it's hard to miss. In the distance there'll be a big silver bean. You'll be looking for the big grassy area behind the fountains and the bean (it's got on X on it in on the map), which is called the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. It's pretty straightforward:

And this is how to get from Union Station to the hotel (or, if you're arriving at the LaSalle St. Metra Station to the hotel... be careful, because there are a lot of different Metra lines! Some end up at LaSalle St. Station - the station labeled METRA in the picture - and some end up at Union. Here's a link to help you figure it out: http://www.metrarail.com/):

(click to make it bigger)

Or, if you're coming directly from O'Hare Airport or Midway Airport, you will probably want to take the L. (aka 'The Loop'). If you're coming in from Midway, you will want to take the Orange line to the LaSalle/VanBuren Station and then you will walk East on Van Buren towards Michigan Ave, and then you can follow the map above - it's an elevated train, so there'll be stairs. It's basically right on top of the LaSalle St. Station (marked Metra on the map above). If you're coming from O'Hare, you'll want to take the Blue Line to the LaSalle Station (this is a subway, so there'll be stairs), and walk East on Congress til you get to Michigan Ave... then you can follow the directions on the map above. If you get confused as to which way east is, just ask anybody which way the Lake is... that will be your answer. =) mizbean also has some helpful alternative directions in her reply below! (Thanks for catching my mistake! *is fixed*)

And of course, there are taxis if you are unable to walk this distance with your luggage or because of health reasons! A taxi ride from any of these stations wouldn't be more than a few dollars.

Anyone need a roommate?

So I've been going over my finances to see if I can swing last-second travel plans to make it to Terminus, and I can, IF and only IF I can find someone to room with and split hotel costs. I had originally planned on going with my sister, but she had to bail last minute due to job difficulties. So, is there anyone who needs or would like a roommate? Or does anyone have suggestions about where I could look for a roommate? Thank you in advance.

EDIT: Roommates found! Thank you, ravenna_c_tan!
