While walking around in the dealer's room with my sis and her 2 friends I saw his table in the back and my heart literally just STOPPED.
"LOOK LOOK LOOK- THERE HE HIS- JESS HE'S RIGHT THERE- JESS. IT'S LITTLE KURIBOH."
"So go say hi."
"But... My Ipod has no space left! I can't take a picture with it! I need you to with your phone!"
Even waiting in line I was shaking like a Chihuahua. I started talking to the guy in front of me who was really nice and was like, "Oh yeah this is my first time meeting him too" and everything, and I was just like, "YEA THIS IS MY FIRST TIME MEETING HIM TOO AND IM SO NERVOUS." And the guy reassured me but I was still so nervous. When it was my turn my heart literally stopped all over again.
I was shaking, and STUTTERING LIKE CRAZY. I WAS SO NERVOUS!
AND I PAUSED.
I WAS SO NERVOUS I PAUSED AND STUTTERED.
"I-I... I-I'm sorry, I was waiting in line this time and I still have NO IDEA what to say to you right now! I'm so star struck right now!"
And he honestly got SO concerned for me when I started stuttering like that, like he wanted to comfort me, but didn't want to make me feel uncomfortable and I'm just like (In my head) 'No omfg please you CAN NOT make me feel uncomfortable, I'm scared that I'm making YOU uncomfortable-'
He looked at me and said, "Oh no please! That's really alright!! I remember once I was waiting in line for hours to meet a celebrity and when I got to the front I completely froze, got an autograph, and walked away awkwardly." My sister behind me was like, "Oh no! XD" And I Was like, "Aww!"
He noticed how nervous I still was, and then ASKED ME ABOUT MY HOME STUCK COSPLAY!!! I was dressed as Nepeta, but didn't have my face painted.
Guys, this man was so nice that he saw how nervous I was, so started a conversation WITH ME/FOR ME. He was so nice omfg....
He was like, "So, who are you dressed as? You're from Homestuck right?" And I was like, "Uh yeah!" (I saw uh when answering any question Idk why...) "Which troll are you? You're a female one right?" And I replied, "Yeah ^^ I'm Nepeta, the uh- cat one!" And so we talked a bit about Homestuck and how it wasn't updated and how a game was being made, and then I paused and asked, "Um- Do you mind if I get a picture with you?" And he was like, "Yeah sure! Let's do it!" And he came AROUND the table to take the picture, and came beside me and asked, "Is it alright if I put my arm around you?" And I was like, "Oh yeah no definitely! Go ahead!" And I got a picture with him!!! (My sis took like, 4 also, I'll post two of them or one or so on Tumblr later when she sends it to my Ipod-)
Then I asked how much everything on the table was (He was selling T-shirts, posters, keychains and cool coins-) and I decided to buy the poster (Which is actually this one right here!- www.deviantart.com/art/YGOTAS-…
) and he signed it and asked me, "So Amanda, who's your favourite character?" And I said, "Oh jeez! Um... Yami probably, I love how sassy you make him." And he started doing the Yami voice to me and I literally fangirled right there and was like, "Oh my God your doing the Yami voice~!" and my sister laughed a bit, and he signed the poster!!! (I'll post that too to my Tumblr later when I can-) So before I left I asked him, "Are you sad to be letting go of Yami Marik?" And we talked about that and how good of a character he was and how he was just so cool and evil and the best villain and just-
He shook my hand before I left and said, "Well, it was very nice meeting you Amanda!" and I said, "Oh my God no Thank you SO much!!!" And we we're both like, "I hope you have a nice day!!!"
My sis told her friends that meeting LK was like meeting my 'Felicia Day' *I met F.D in NY Comic Con last year with my sis and her friend, and her friend LOOOOOVES F.D, so hearing that LK was like my F.D, my sister's friend was like, AWWW!!! THATS SO CUTE! I totally understand now why you wanted to meet him!*
I literally almost started crying after I walked away-
I was WAAAY too full of emotions and there were so many more things I wanted to say to him, but I was just so caught up in the moment that-
Ugh, I didn't know WHAT to say! But guys, he started a conversation with me BECAUSE he saw how nervous I was. I didn't even pay to get an autograph, I paid for the poster and he signed it.
He even wrote, "Hey Amanda! It's good to be the king!" Because I said my fav character was Yami! (Yugi is SUUUCH A CLOSE SECOND!)
But I just-
I'm still not over this. Everyone is going to get annoyed with how I continue to talk about it but I am SOOO NOT OVER THIS!!!
I EVEN SAW HIS PANEL AFTER! My sis and her friends just made sure I got there (Because I had no idea where it was-) and left me there, and I'm the person when excited/nervous to talk to anyone/everyone. (I'm so sorry because those people are so annoying and I'm one of them I,D) And LK said during his panel that he was such a shy person, and he needs to talk courage to talk to people too, so I was like, Back there when I spoke to him, he REALLY understood how I felt and how nervous I was.
I even got to see the newest YGOTAS episode!! OH MAN IT WAS AWESOME!!!! I loved it! (It also made me realize how Yugi isn't even the main character in YGO really, he's never even there XD My poor bby- ;;... It's even his body that Yami is using-) I was fangirling the entire time. I just regret walking on out right when the panel was over, I should've stayed behind to talk to him again with other people, but I didn't and thought my sister would care to know where I was. (Spoilers- she didn't.)
I really regret not staying behind because I think some other people did T_T Oh well-
I still met him and got a signed poster from him! (I was debating getting the poster or this awesome T-shirt- www.deviantart.com/art/Ygotas-…
but my sis said the poster, which I will proudly hang on my wall later- I usually tack all my pics to my wall *Yes, I have a wall of awesome fan art that I buy at conventions~* but for something this special I need to tape it, and my sis knows how to do it in this special way and she knows where the tape is- sadly though she has a horse show today and idk when she'll be home-)
Oh jeez guys.
Best day of my life.
I will never forget this, and I hope to see him again next year at the next CTcon, and hopefully tell him everything that I couldn't this year
He is such a nice person, honestly, SUCH an amazing person. So nice, caring and just plain funny! Even if you don't like Yu-Gi-Oh! I suggest watching his Abridged series because it's really funny and makes fun of YGO, yet gets the plot across pretty well. (Warning- the first season or two has very bad quality due to how old they are, but nevertheless, they're still pretty damn funny!)
I need to go draw fanart now, and a bunch of fanart <3 (I should've drawn him something this year- T_T but by the time I thought of drawing him something, the convention was the next day, and we only went for one day this year! I'll be sure to give him something awesome next year!!!)
Little Kuriboh is such a nice person I just can't-
Expect a bunch of Yu-Gi-Oh! and Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series fanart now- (or, maybe not- Idk if I'll post any of it- Yami and Yugi's hair is A BITCH to draw!)
