            Question for you past con-goers. The interviews they do - how do you get your seat for that? Is it a first come, first serve thing? Do the gold coupon people (my gosh, that sounds so Willy Wonka-ish) get the front rows regardless of when they arrive? Do you end up doing a lot of standing around and walking?
            For the Chicago con if you get a Gold ticket, you pick your seat from their website and that's your spot for the weekend. We got to be friends with all the people around us and had a great time with them. There is a LOT of waiting in your seat to be called for autographs and waiting in line for pics, but that's also fun if you talk to your neighbors. And get to see Joe walk down the hall. Twice.

            I would advise also that, if possible, you print out your own pics for the autographs. They sell them there, but the paper is lots thinner than the good stuff you can buy and do at home. That is, if you have a good printer. I believe the cost was around $6 each or so. They sell extra autograph and photo tickets there, and you have to have a ticket for each pic you get them to autograph. The handlers can be quite...ahem...strict, but if you don't make eye contact and just look at the guest, you can get away with a lot. What? Well, you can. But they don't allow you to hand anything to them directly.

            Oh, and one of the biggest problems in the Chicago hotel is getting food, so bring snacks.

            Spoilered for length:

            "Beaches, Wine, and Loyalty"

            Author’s Notes: I wrote this from a prompt a long time ago on my iPod but never posted it. Takes place during Season One.

            Disclaimer: I own – no, wait, still don’t own anything Stargate related.

            -=-=-=-=-=-

            Major John Sheppard looked around the mixed group of Athosians and Expedition members, noticing the absence of one particular member. He nodded at Teyla, who made her way over to him, holding a bottle of Athosian wine.

            "Is everything all right?"

            "Um, I'm gonna go for a little walk, that's all. Just make sure McKay doesn't do anything stupid, all right?"

            Teyla glanced quickly at the bottle she was holding, then desperately laughed. "Then what shall I do with this?"

            John pressed his lips together. "I'll take that off your hands for you," he offered with a sly smile.

            She handed it over to him, along with two handmade cups.

            When John quirked an eyebrow, she explained, "She's at the shore line."

            John opened his mouth to retort, but clamped it shut, only replying with a nod of thanks and understanding as he left the group.

            -=-=-=-=-

            Elizabeth sat on a large rock, letting her bare feet hang over as she allowed the cooling waves to rush over her feet again and again. The sand on this beach was very fine, but it made for an excellent do-it-yourself pedicure.

            She heard the sound of heavy footsteps behind her.

            She smiled, shielding her eyes as she looked at the sun hovering midway in the sky. "I was wondering how long it would take for you to get away."

            "Yeah, well, Rodney pretty much sealed the deal."

            She laughed, then turned around and smiled at her companion. "And I see you made out with some of the goods."

            "Teyla asked me to take it before McKay found it," he shrugged, offering her a cup and pulling the handmade stopper out of the bottle.

            If Elizabeth remembered right, this particular wine tasted like red wine with a hint of raspberry -- its tartness at first made you not want anymore, but by the time you swallowed it, you got used to it, and wondered why you disliked it in the first place.

            It reminded her of a certain major she knew.

            John poured more in her glass, less in his, and he replaced the stopped firmly. Holding his cup, he looked at her. "So. What should we toast? No attacks, no coups, no sieges, so ..."

            She looked around at all the nature around her, something she knew existed from Atlantis but couldn't see every day. As her panoramic view ended with her looking at John, she couldn't help but smile. "To two friends who need to catch up."

            John smiled with her. "Cheers."

            As they both emptied their cups and felt a slight warmness in their stomachs, Elizabeth suggested a walk. "Just in case someone comes looking for you. You probably wouldn't want to be found sitting barefoot on a rock, pouring out your tale of how you cheated on your 5th grade math test just to impress your teacher."

            John smirked as he stood, extending a hand to Elizabeth. "It was 6th grade, English, and she was hot," he corrected sarcastically, pulling her up.

            She met his eyes for a brief glance; she saw the teasing, jovial nature of his last statement, but she could sense that the extra emphasis he placed on his last word wasn't merely directed at his 6th grade English teacher.

            They averted their eyes, then began walking. John still had his boots on and was gently crunching against the sand. Elizabeth had managed to leave her boots in the Puddle Jumper and slipped into a pair of sandals, rolling up her black pants as they sat on the rock.

            "So. How are you, Doctor Weir?" John asked, glancing over at her.

            "I'm fine, Major Sheppard. How are you?"

            He blew out a breath. "I'm good." He chuckled as they walked. "Well, I guess we've caught up. Bye."

            She gently touched his arm. "Very funny." After a split second, she inserted her arm through the loop in his, coming to rest in the crook.

            John glanced down at their entwined arms. "My lady?"

            Elizabeth laughed.

            They walked a few more steps in silence until John whispered something, just beyond her hearing range.

            "What was that?" she asked, looking up at him.

            He shrugged. "Just talking to myself."

            "Anything you'd care to share with the rest of the class?"

            He stopped walking, turning to face her. As her arm was about to fall, he reached out and held her hand. "There's something I do wanna talk to you about. I'm just ... mulling it over as I go, so no judgment until the end."

            "All right."

            "I know that since we've gotten here, we've butted heads a few times. And I gotta say, arguing with you is ... fun. Enjoyable. Which might be part of the reason I do it so often."

            She chuckled faintly.

            "But, no matter what happens, whatever we face, if Earth ever finds us," he said seriously, reaching for her other hand, "I will always be loyal to you. You're the head of this Expedition, you're the one who gave me a second chance. I waited a long time for someone to believe in me again, and you did, for better or for worse." He bit his lip at the phrasing but continued. "I will do my best not to question your decisions."

            "John, I want you to question it. We run Atlantis together! I need you. I need your input. Without you, people would think I'm a dictator."

            He made his puppy face. "So I should stop telling people you're a dictator?"

            She shook her head with a smile, wriggling one of her hands out of his to hold it. They stood, each holding the other's hand, making vows of loyalty.

            For a flash, she saw what their present stance could look like to someone else, but she didn't care.

            John, however, did. He gently pulled their hands apart, then looked steadily in her green eyes. "I will swear this. I will support you. I may not agree, and if I don't, you'll hear about it before you make a decision. But I will stand up with you. Always."

            "Always?"

            John shrugged. "Well, until Rodney accidentally blows us up or something."

            She laughed, then gently touched his cheek. "Thank you, John. I appreciate that."

            As they started walking again, John quickly asked, "So should I get on bended knee?"

            Elizabeth gaped at him.

            He tilted his head, hazel eyes twinkling mischievously. "So you can dub me a knight?"

            End.
            Lovely. And that Teyla never does miss a trick, does she?

              That's pretty much a pitfall of any con, unfortunately. Captive audiences and overpriced food.

                Between your info and Kitty's plus the Creation site, I think we've got a pretty good picture how this works. But I was wondering, did you have your photo op picture autographed?

                Also, how far in advance did you buy your tickets?

                  I got my photo ops with both Joe and Torri autographed. However, be aware that it is possible that photo op pictures may not be ready for pickup by the time they start the autograph session, especially for photo ops that are held later in the day. You may want to have a backup picture ready just in case.

                  I've only been to the LAX/Burbank con, which was local enough for me that I always just bought a General ticket when I arrived. Considering that you're coming in from out of town, I definitely recommend buying your tickets in advance, especially if you're going Gold or Preferred. I think they typically cut off Gold sales a week or so before the con, but I'd certainly get them well before then. Honestly, if they do change the schedule and move Torri to Sunday w/a dual photo op and Q&A, I'll lock in my tickets that day if I can.

                    I second what SK said. I got all possible tickets in advance. You can always add more autograph/pic tickets but the Gold will sell out. I was only able to get my pic with Joe signed and David to autograph my group pic because Joe had already left when the group pic was ready. It's a scheduling challenge sometimes. You'll get a schedule in advance and can kind of plan your attack. Part of the fun. They are good about making announcements from the stage of when pics are ready and reminders that you should go line up for photo sessions. Try to line up early because the lines can be very long, especially for any involving Joe. He is definitely the "Elvis" of the con. LOL

                    Also, the Chicago hotel is close to a McDonald's and a great pizza place, but having time to run over there is the problem. There is nothing else but other hotels in walking distance. We took a cab to a Target for breakfast stuff. The hotel's restaurant is good but will be crowded. There's a small place that I believe was only open in the mornings, and they set up a sandwich/salad line in the lobby for lunch, but again it's busy. We ate in the bar a lot. I seem to be obsessed with food, but you don't want to miss anything to go eat, so it's a hunter/gatherer society. LOL

                      Unless Ben Browder happens to be there, too. (which it looks like he won't be this year, but he was at LAX in 2009 along with Joe, and they stuck Ben over in the Farscape room for autographs, probably knowing it would get crowded if they were in the same room )

                      Just for giggles, I checked out options for getting from Chicago Union Station out to O'Hare. (no way am I taking a plane!) Not too bad, I could actually take the EL from Union Station to the stop in Rosemont and walk about 3-4 blocks to the hotel. Of course, this is all still pie-in-the-sky at the moment.

                        Yes, that will work. Mr. SR and I made that trip into Chicago on the EL on Sunday. It's a LONG way though and the EL is very noisy and shaky. I got a bit queasy and I never get motion sickness.

                        Ben B was on Chuck last week playing a small part that was totally unCamlike. Made me cringe a little.

                            That's pretty much it. Darn thing is scary. Our Metro is mostly smooth and quiet. The EL rattles and clanks and seems to go dangerously close to buildings.

                            I've had another angsty creative spurt involving the woobie face. Thanks to Faith Hill's new song for the inspiration.

                              Oh, SR, that wallpaper is so angsty and sad and gorgeous. I love the quote (is it from the song?) There's nothing as good as sad country songs. i always have a feeling they can break your heart and mend you back together at the same time.

                              Which gives me an idea. I could put together an entire sparky soundtrack to country songs!
                              I'm not weird, I'm limited edition.

                                Which gives me an idea. I could put together an entire sparky soundtrack to country songs!
                                Thanks. That sounds like a great idea. Yes, the lyric is from Come Home, Faith Hill's new song. It has a ton of good Sparky lines.
