OH MY GOD
…OH MY GOD
I wonder if I can raise £99 for tickets, and money for travel and accomodation in Cardiff. I hope. OMG.
LEAH WE NEED TO GO.
Does anyone want to go with me? I’d love to go but I wouldn’t have anyone in RL to go with. Anyone else in the same boat?
WHO WANTS TO GO WITH ME
HOLY FUCK I WANT TO GO TO THIS SO MUCH
But seriously it’s quite a lot but… Ogfjgklsjflkdadafg
25th of march? but…thats my brithday. fuck. anyone wanna make my 16th brithday absolutley amazing by buying me tickets for this?
THATS THE WEEKEND BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY. ;D
WHY DO THEY HAVE TO DO IT JUST AFTER I MOVE OUT OF CARDIFF?! WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME? WHYYYY? Going home that weekend.
I would actually so do this, but £99 is way too much for me to even consider right now, even though I’m already in Cardiff so I wouldn’t need to pay for travel or hotel but still…eh…maybe I’ll just hang around outside and appreciate all the Doctor Who fandomness from afar
Oh my god can I go here please?
I mean, except for the fact that it’s in Cardiff and oh god last time I was there it was so horrifically boring, but hnnnng, Doctor Who Convention.
Funny story, the mother of a friend of mine once went to an unofficial Doctor Who Convention, as somebody’s plus one. That person was called John Smith. So she was John Smith’s Plus One. :3
