    I’m getting my tickets as soon as I can afford them for Philly! I’m so excited over this I want to cry and jump up and down all at the same time. I even got my husband to agree to go!

  2. castle2cute says:

    Admin are you or anybody else planning on going to the Philly show?

  3. I would love to, but there’s no way I can travel to the US for any of those conventions, bad timing for me. I’m already heading over for Wondercon this month and then SDCC in July

    Me! Me! Me! Me! Me!

    I’m planning on being in Philadelphia in June!!!  Is there anyone else on the east coast planning to be there?  Speak up -I’d love to meet any and all of you. I just have to make room on my credit card to make the ticket purchase. I was expecting it to be expensive. But it’s almost border-line insanity level of expensive until you factor in all the silly little things that you need to take into consideration when even doing a trip like this. (I live roughly an hour or so north of Philly, so I need to add in gas, parking, tolls, and if need be train tickets to actually get into the city if we only go for the day, and lets not forget food, and Castle goodies and if my husband agrees a hotel room for the night if we decide to make it a weekend trip.) So many decisions and choices that I feel I am not prepared to make until I do a lot of research. 

    Please someone decide to come join me so that I won’t be standing in that line holding my autograph session ticket clenched in my little fist and muttering to myself like a lunatic all alone. I’d much rather have someone else to talk to, and keep company with, so as to only come off looking like a slightly confused newbie and not a deranged psychopath! Lord only knows that my husband will be off someplace on his own, searching for god only knows what, and making friends with god only knows who! 

    I kid you not when I say that he & I have been separated at concerts in the past and when I’ve encountered him again he’s chatting with not just anyone, but people like Steven Adler of Guns n’ Roses, like they were long lost friends! On our honeymoon he ran into Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister in a restaurant. My luck I’ll wander off to find a bathroom and he’ll run into Nathan or Adam on the convention floor and strike up a conversation with one of them having NO idea who they are! And then I’d have to kill him and drag the body home. LOL  But not before I heard “Ya’ know I thought that guy looked familiar…”  thud

    I wish had the money to visit with him…charasmatic!

    Hi!

    Oh this is my first post! I just registered although I frequent the site daily.

    Anyway, I was planning on attending SDCC this year with a friend, July was perfect, we get these savings annually from work in July   but we couldn’t get tickets!! Agh.

    Then I found out about these events and I really want to meet Nathan! even if I’m sure I’ll just stare and won’t be able to say a word to him. 

    Do you think these are the only events he will attend this year? because if they are I might ask for an advance and just go!! I thought of Dallas first because it’s closer (I’m from Mexico) but the tickets are going fast :S

  9. jeannine turgepm says:

    where can I get extra money, Help

  10. aussiecastlefan says:

    Does anyone know how much the auction to win a day with Nathan ended up? Last time I looked it was over $9,000.

  11. Come on Andrew Marlowe why don’t you auction a day with Stana? I am sure she would draw a very large $ number.
    Its great Nathan is always doing special appearances, but why don’t you let Stana get out there with the fans too. She doesn’t get promoted as much as Nathan I feel, and show hit with out one or the other – how come ???

  12. The Caskett says:

    I’m going to Dallas. Already have my autograph and photo op tickets.  Anyone else going?

  13. musiclover says:

    I’m going to Dallas comic con

  14. The Caskett says:

    Great to know there will be others.  Are you going to sign up for Nathan’s autograph session or photo op?

     

  15. musiclover says:

    I’ve got my barcode for an autograph session (appearently when you get to the venue you swap barcodes they email you for either wristbands or tickets) As far as I know they haven’t released photo op info yet and apparently there will be two q&a’s one Saturday and one Sunday the only thing that sucks though is that the one for Saturday is gonna cost while the one sunday is free. Have you checked the Dallas comic con facebook page, they just released some info for the Saturday one earlier, if not you should check their page.

  16. Pamela_J. says:

     

    I must be deranged. I actually bought myself the $299 ticket to see Nathan in Philadelphia. It’s official, I’m going now and I can’t back out or I’ll be up a creek. So has anyone else decided to come hang out with me in Philly? Pretty please? Come on, you know you want to!!!  fangirl

  17. Setty41319 says:

    I am going to the Dallas comic con – The saturday tickets are all ready sold out – I missed by a few hours – but I am going to try for the public Sunday Q and A.

    Hoping I can get into the Sunday one , hopefully they will release the full schedule soon

  19. Matillian says:

    I’m all set for Dallas as well, I’ll be going on my own so if anyone is interested in hanging out, I would to meet other Castle fans at the con.

    I got the photo op and the Q&A, I couldn’t afford the autograph at the moment but I hope they do not sell out or I’ll try getting a ticket once there.

    I can’t wait!

    I am heart broken about Nathan cancelling his appearance to the Philadeliphia Comic Con.  I can’t believe it!  I thought it was too good to be true that I would get to meet him….and sure enough….I was right, it wasn’t true.  What also adds salt to the wound is that the week before this scheduling conflict came up, he added three more appearances in Canada to his schedule.  I cried and mopped around all day yesterday.  I had so looked forward to meeting him (VIP Nathan ticket) and had had a permanent smile on my face since I had bought my ticket early March.  I don’t guess I’ll ever get to meet him.  This is my second attempt and second failure.  Oh well….it’s going to be a long Summer for sure.

    Yeah, I’ve always heard that…..but I live in Atlanta, GA, and it’s not cheap to get to California and Philly.  That doesn’t hurt as much as the disappointment.  Obviously, mometarily I thought it was worth it or I wouldn’t have bought the ticket. I’m just mad because I let myself think I was really going to get to see him.  I came so close…..!oi  It could be worse…I could live in Austraila or Europe I guess.  I just wanted to meet him so bad!  It literally mad me sick to my stomach when I read the e-mail.  I thought I was seeing things.  Of all of the events for him to cancell….the one I was going to.  I was counting on the “high” of seeing him…getting a photo op with him, etc. to get me through the “Castleless” Summer.cry

    You are right, it is definitely not cheap to get to California and Philly. I completely understand because I live in Tupelo, MS (which is about 6 hours from you) and I have come to the conclusion that I will probably never get to meet him period.

     

  24. OTTAWA COMIC-CON 2013 REPORT

     

    Esther (as Arya Stark from Game of Thrones) and I (adorned in my WRITER vest and armed with Heat Wave) arrived at the Convention Center 1 1/2 hours before the doors opened… glad we did.  We got into the building about 10 minutes after the doors opened.  Apparently, some people were still waiting to get into the convention centre almost an hour later!

    Comic-con-May-11-2013-92.JPG

     

    Very first thing we did was the autograph session with Nathan while the line was still pretty short.  Can I just say right now — for the record — that the man is extremely handsome, charming, funny, kind, and gracious!  It’s very much an assembly-line, as you approach, shake his hand (he has GORGEOUS eyes!), have about 20 seconds to speak as he signs his name on something (I asked him to sign the cover of my Heat Wave novel).

    Most surreal and coolest moment, however, was that HE asked to take a picture of ME in my writer vest!!! faint THERE’S A PHOTO OF ME IN NATHAN FILLION’S CAMERA!!!! thud

    I fan-girled a bit (picture Beckett when she met Joe Torre), but managed to re-group with a few seconds to spit out “Hello from Germany, Estonia, Scotland, Portland, Texas, Latvia…” and then I blanked and had to move on.

    Comic-con-May-11-2013-4.JPG

     

    Anyhoo… Esther and I wandered around for a bit… took it all in!  I actually found it really weird and cool that people actually wanted to take a picture of me!  So many Castle fans… it was awesome!

    Comic-con-May-11-2013-23.JPG

    There were so many great costumes.  Here are a few select ones…

    At one point, I ran into a couple of my students — sisters, one who was in my Grade 9 English class last semester and the other in grade 12 and my Yearbook editor.  Both are Nathan Fillion fans and Castle fans.  They dressed as Captain Hammer and Captain Mal… so when the three of us were standing together, we got a lot of attention. 

    Comic-con-May-11-2013-37.JPG

     

    At noon, Esther and I found Naomi (Esther’s older sister) and the three of us went to Felicia Day’s Q&A panel  (there was no Nathan panel today cry)

    We got in line 45 minutes before the talk, and managed to get seats 3 rows from the front!  The room was PACKED!  And she was incredibly funny as well as thoughtful.  Really enjoyed it!

    Comic-con-May-11-2013-54.JPG

     

     

     

    By early afternoon, the centre was jam-packed with people!  While wandering passed a t-shirt display, one of the workers squeed when she saw me!  Huge OCDer, but not allowed to leave the booth at all, so she was so sad that she wouldn’t be able to meet Nathan.  She was thrilled when I let her hug my signed novel.  Then when I had my picture taken with a Captain Hammer t-shirt, she pulled out one that she thought I’d appreciate even more…

    Comic-con-May-11-2013-78.JPGComic-con-May-11-2013-22.JPG

     

    I bought said t-shirt!

    Comic-con-May-11-2013-81.JPG

     

    The photo-op with Nathan was scheduled at 4:30pm.  They suggested we arrive at the booth area at 4:15pm.  I arrived at 4:00pm… and the line was already a mile long!  I met up with the two sisters and we all stood in line together.  The line behind us got even longer!

    Once the photo session began, the line moved quite quickly.  You really have very little time in there.  Think about what you want to do ahead of time because otherwise, it’ll be just a plain portrait.  And he doesn’t have time to chat nor hug really…  but he does smell really good, is extremely tall and muscular, and he has very soft hands!

    We read page 105 together! love

    Comiccon-Nathan-Fillion.JPG

     

    By the time I was done there, it was 5:00pm and my feet were so sore.  Done for the day… but it was so much fun!

    If you ever have a chance to go to a Con… do it! fangirl It was such a great fan experience! thumbsup  Also, buy your tickets and photo-op passes ahead of time.  Not only does it save waiting in line at the Con, but they’re also much cheaper when bought in advance.

     

     

     

    P.S.  Can I just add… Comic-Con attendees are so nice! grin Everyone was so friendly, nobody complained about line-ups, nobody tried to hop the line, and everyone was willing to help you out if you had a question or needed to find something.  It was such a great and positive environment!

     

  25. Pamela_J. says:

    Awww Shena,

     

    Your experience today looked amazing! Now I am even more upset that he cancelled on Philly!!! I’m with Castle2Cute on the whole shocked/ hurt/ depressed thing. I was so looking forward to meeting him and the others from Firefly all in one place. And I must also say his cancellation has also stopped the face to face meeting of a couple of us from this forum that were all scheduled to be in Philly together on Saturday. Now since I am the only PA resident left, I’m pretty sure I’m flying solo on this mission. crySo for me it’s now a “double bummer”. I was looking forward to THAT as much as Nathan.

     

    I am kind of in limbo at the moment on how I am feeling on the whole con experience at the moment. I have never been to one, so I am anxious. But at the same time now I am sad and I am becoming angry because I *just* YESTERDAY repurchased my ticket (for the remaining 3 of Jewel, Adam and Summer) because the other ticket was an automatic refund. Now this morning I wake up to find the message that they have added Gina Torres to fill Nathan’s spot. My first thought was “Ya HOO!!!” followed by complete anger at the following post that we won’t know until MONDAY if and what the “new” ticket will be priced at with Gina on it!!! So now I have to wait to see if they will just blow my ticket for the 3 of them out and refund it AGAIN- or do I actually get to make a decision this time around and purchase an upgrade? Or can I just keep my “3 pack” and be happy? I am not made of money- for anyone who did not get to see the pricing on their website- Nathan’s VIP pass was $299. Like a fool – I bought it. Then he cancels and I get that back- the new price for the remaining “Firefly VIP Pass” is  $375. So I buy it, well knowing I can’t afford it. But I keep repeating to myself “Who needs food anyway? I’m going to Con!” Now- 24 hours later— The price is changing AGAIN???? brickwall  For the love of God- make the madness stop!!! I want to scream and cray in frustration for the 2nd time in one week. (I spent all day Thursday crying over the cancellation.) I just want to find my happy place again. Is that too much to ask??

     

  26. Pamela…

    Wow… That’s really expensive!  I’d never been to a Con either, but the cost up here wasn’t that much.   My regular comic-con day pass was $35, the autograph was $60 (no pre-purchase needed), and the photo was $60.

     

    I can’t begin to understand why yours is so much more expensive.  And our prices never changed.  I don’t get it…

     

    As for the cancellation of guests – apparently, this is common. Jonathan Frakes cancelled for mine 2 weeks ago, and Summer Glau cancelled yesterday. Nathan was only added to the Ottawa Con last Wednesday.  I was just lucky.

  27. Pamela_J. says:

     

     

    Wow Shena, You guys got off cheap! Our regular day pass to con changed in price depending  on the day. If I remember correctly Thursday and Friday the Pass was $35 a day, then Saturday the price jumped to $55 a day and Sunday dropped to $45 a day.  If you did the VIP for Nathan it was $299. An autograph was $80 (Which was even more than William Shattner’s!) and his photo op was $125. So if I would have done all of that and not the VIP it still would have been $260 to do it all. I just splurged the extra cash and went for the VIP and told myself this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. And it has left me in tears… as  for the fact that I had to buy a ticket for my husband to go along, that was an extra $55 plus a ticket handling charge. This whole thing has cost me a small fortune.

     

    We were fortunate to find hotel rooms very, very late as friends of ours just decided to go along to meet their favorite stars too. Our hotel room cost us $250 for one night (@ Le Meridian). Our only other choice was a $369 a night room at the Marriott. I am bound and determined to enjoy myself one way or another in Philadelphia. Maybe I can convince my husband to take me to Amuse( in our hotel) for a late romantic dinner or to Buddakan (the top ranked restaurant in the city) as we never had the chance to celebrate my birthday together back in March.

    Bring cash and a camera.  Secondly, if you are having a photo taken, have an idea of what you’d like to do because it’s literally 30 seconds — walk in, pose, picture, walk out.  Third, go with the flow.  He’s disarmingly handsome and geniunely kind — it kind of causes your mind to blank. Finally, take a moment to appreciate how gorgeous his eyes are. grin

     

    Most importantly… have fun!  I couldn’t stop smiling all day… and that was the whole Con experience that did that to me.

    No, be don’t sorry….If I were you I would be excited and post also!  I just have to pull up my “big girl panties” and suck it up and hope for next year.  I wanted to look into those beautiful blue eyes myself…..  I definitely want you to take as many pictures of him as you can….share the love.  Thanks for saying you’re sorry, no need.   Have fun this weekend and take oodles of pix!

    I should clarify… you probably won’t be able / allowed to take pictures of any celebrities.  Official, purchased photo op is the only (legal) way to get that.

    But you will want to take photos of the many awesome costumed people at the Con.

    At one point, I ran into a couple of my students — sisters, one who was in my Grade 9 English class last semester and the other in grade 12 and my Yearbook editor.  Both are Nathan Fillion fans and Castle fans.  They dressed as Captain Hammer and Captain Mal… so when the three of us were standing together, we got a lot of attention.

    At noon, Esther and I found Naomi (Esther’s older sister) and the three of us went to Felicia Day’s Q&A panel  (there was no Nathan panel today cry)

    We got in line 45 minutes before the talk, and managed to get seats 3 rows from the front!  The room was PACKED!  And she was incredibly funny as well as thoughtful.  Really enjoyed it!

    By early afternoon, the centre was jam-packed with people!  While wandering passed a t-shirt display, one of the workers squeed when she saw me!  Huge OCDer, but not allowed to leave the booth at all, so she was so sad that she wouldn’t be able to meet Nathan.  She was thrilled when I let her hug my signed novel.  Then when I had my picture taken with a Captain Hammer t-shirt, she pulled out one that she thought I’d appreciate even more…

    I bought said t-shirt!

    The photo-op with Nathan was scheduled at 4:30pm.  They suggested we arrive at the booth area at 4:15pm.  I arrived at 4:00pm… and the line was already a mile long!  I met up with the two sisters and we all stood in line together.  The line behind us got even longer!

    Once the photo session began, the line moved quite quickly.  You really have very little time in there.  Think about what you want to do ahead of time because otherwise, it’ll be just a plain portrait.  And he doesn’t have time to chat nor hug really…  but he does smell really good, is extremely tall and muscular, and he has very soft hands!

    We read page 105 together! love

    By the time I was done there, it was 5:00pm and my feet were so sore.  Done for the day… but it was so much fun!

    If you ever have a chance to go to a Con… do it! fangirl It was such a great fan experience! thumbsup  Also, buy your tickets and photo-op passes ahead of time.  Not only does it save waiting in line at the Con, but they’re also much cheaper when bought in advance.

     

     

     

    P.S.  Can I just add… Comic-Con attendees are so nice! grin Everyone was so friendly, nobody complained about line-ups, nobody tried to hop the line, and everyone was willing to help you out if you had a question or needed to find something.  It was such a great and positive environment!

     

    Hi Sheena – thanks for the pictures and the report.  I do believe if I got that close to those gorgeous eyes I would have passed out!  That doesn’t surprise me that he smells good as well.  It’s a shame the photos aren’t scratch and sniff!  That’s really cool about him taking your picture!  Did you ask him what happened to his hand?  You should have kissed it and made it better.  

    I am sooooooooo envious!

    Hi Shena – …Did you ask him what happened to his hand?  

    First words I ever said to Nathan Fillion are burned into my brain:  “Hello…  Oh my goodness!  What happened to your hand?”  (genuine concern).  He simply told me that he hurt it a few days ago.  Didn’t go into details and didn’t have more than 20 seconds in his presence to engage in a deep conversation.  Pretty much one or two sentences is all you have time for.  And once those blue eyes meet yours… mind blanks.   I think I said “Thank you”, but it’s really a surreal blur…

     

    You should have kissed it and made it better.  

    That’s the one he uses to sign with. grin

    He’s disarmingly handsome and geniunely kind — it kind of causes your mind to blank.

     

    Oh my god, Shena, I am so jealous. Good on you, though. What an experience.

     

    Edit: Okay, I was going to try to play it cool and not fangirl, but…what color are his eyes, really? I usually think they’re blue but in certain light they appear gray or even a grayish-brown.

    Thank you for the report Shena! It’s great to put a name to a face. Looks like a lot of fun. Love your photo with Nathan bounce

    Sorry!

     

  47. Oh no!! all who are missing out…. truly horrible for you!!

     

    I noticed in the TV interviews Nathan did a couple of days ago that something was definitely wrong with is eye.. I hope it’s nothing too serious and I also hope that at some future time he can make it up to those of you that have missed out on meeting him.

     

    I know how upset I would have been in your place so I offer you all hugs! hug

    Thank you Admin for your sympathy.  I am still heart I but I have regained my belief in “rainbows & unicorns” and have become hopeful once again of getting to meet this adorable manlove.  I had a VIP ticket to Philly.  I got everything back but my airline ticket.  I did notice his eye looked bad in the Seattle interviews.  If you remember his eye (same one) was doing the same thing and looking the same way in their last Paleyfest appearance.  His eyes looked rather swollen, but I believe it was his right eye was actually weeping.  I remember because I kept my EYE on him the whole time.love

     

    i have faith that I will have another opportunity!

    I’m hoping he might agree to come for Fan days in October. They said Stan Lee did that once when he had to cancel. Of course, by then he will be back filming and probably be too busy. 

    Any idea what job he was coming back early for? Lots of sad women were posing by this sign yesterday100_7088-1.JPG

    I would love to, but there’s no way I can travel to the US for any of those conventions, bad timing for me. I’m already heading over for Wondercon this month and then SDCC in July

     

    Hi Admin!

     

    Please give Nathan a kiss for me when you see him at Nerd HQ!  Have you been able to get your ticket to that yet?

     

     

  51. They haven’t announced panels yet never mind put tix on sale :)

    I will try to go.. and I tell you what, if people want to send me personal messages to take along to give to Nathan you can send them to my address below and I will do my best to get them to him.

    Note: I will have to open/read them before I hand anything over though for security reasons. Postcards are a good idea because they say something about where you’re from and are easy to handle.
