Calling all rogues attending NYRF!
« on: Aug 13, 13, 05:23:14 pm CDT »

Hello! As I'm sure some have heard, and most have not, I am in the process of seeking admission to your noble (and/or nefarious) ranks. Despite the obstacle of my gender, I have been set the task of acquiring the approval of 50 rogues in order to achieve this. I could discuss and debate my reasons for wanting to join from the safety and anonymity of the Internet, but I would much rather meet with and speak to as many of you as I can. I will be working at the NY Tuxedo faire for the whole run - alas, due to said work I will be unable to gallavant about seeking out rogues. Therefore, I would be greatly appreciative of anyone who could find the time to stop by for a chat. I am working at the Inner Beast Leather booth, the huuuuge new building with the tower. Can't miss it. Alternately, as I'm sure many of you will also be afflicted with work duties, if you can post or message a convenient time and where you will be, I can try to schedule my work breaks accordingly. Thank you for your time, both for reading this and in advance to those I will be speaking with for hearing me out.

I know you'd rather face-to-face, and I understand that, but for our brothers who aren't at NYRF and are unable to meet you face-to-face, could you elaborate a little bit for them?

My only worry is that a posted explanation might serve as a replacement for real conversation, preventing some who might otherwise have sought me ought to speak from doing so. I worry that someone may not see the need in speaking further, having read a neatly parceled presentation - but I would much rather converse, answer questions, and of course meet and interact with as many people as possible. If its not overly inconvenient, my inclination then would be to have those who cannot make it to NYRF but are still interested in hearing me out message me, at which point I would be happy to start an online discussion with them.

Hooray! Thank you! And many thanks to everyone who showed such overwhelming support, particularly over the past weekend - I never expected to reach my goal so quickly! In fact, at the outset I wasn't sure I'd even manage it this faire season. It means a lot to me that so many people sought me out, had great questions to ask me, and helped to introduce me to so many new people. I ended up really enjoying this process, and having a lot of very interesting and thought provoking conversations. Of course, completing my signatures by no means implies that more rogues shouldn't still seek me out for conversation, I'm sure I haven't met all of you!


Specifically though, for anyone with whom I didn't get to have a conversation but had thoughts on the subject, I do still want to hear them - particularly, I am aware that a few people had strong feelings about the questions being raised, about the process I underwent and how I went about it, etc (both favorable and not) but did not get the chance to speak with me personally for one reason or another. I am very interested to hear these people out to get their opinions and feedback, and hope they will do the same for me.

I would love to keep this topic in open discussion. I've had input on both sides of this fence, and I'd love our brothers to speak their minds and debate this in the open forum format. 


lets keep it civil tho... no below the belt punches (unless we are 10+beers in) and no YO MAMA slights (again unless we many beers in) and such and such.   i do know we ain't made for "rules" per-se, but we can and will respect each other's rights as a damned bastard.
