There are just moments one has to indulge oneself.  Here's mine.  If I was suddenly given a million, I'd spend enough of it to enable an all-expenses-paid gathering in a location dictated by nothing more than fandom whimsy.  The itinery would look something like this:

DAY ONE
12-1  Meet & Greet: Putting names to faces (online names only, no personal information required)
1-3  Lunch - General cuddle-fest
3-5.30  Viewing of Inception
5.30-6.30  Free time ('cause no-one's going to opt for anything but film discussion)
6.30-8  Dinner - General discussion of the film Inception
8-late  Suit-porn discussion group/pajama party

DAY TWO
11-12  Breakfast (because no-one got to bed early the night before, why try to have breakfast earlier, yeah?)
12-1 Arthur's trousers workshop
1-3 Lunch - Rare-pairs discussion groups
3-4 Eames' stubble workshop
4-5.30 General cuddle-fest
5.30-630 Free time (cuddle to your heart's content)
6.30-8 Dinner - film meta & Nolan worship-fest
8-late BAMFs, guns & criminals discussion group/pajama party

DAY THREE
11-12 Breakfast (see day 2)
12-1 'How the hell does the PASIV work, anyway' workshop
1-3 Lunch Switching: top!Arthur/top!Eames discussion groups
3-5.30 Viewing of Inception - the 'quote every line, squee before the action actually happens' free for all
5.30-6.30 General cuddle-fest
6.30-8 Dinner - hot man-on-man action discussion group
8-late - So long, farewell, and thanks for all the dreams/pajama party
 
 
 
I'd pay good money to have as many peeps in this fandom in one place as possible for that.  Especially for the daily cuddle-fest. <3

I'm not saying that the pajama parties wouldn't involve a lot of pop-corn, beverage of choice, cushions, pillows, beanbags and moving the coffee table off the rug kind of stuff (I mean, I think most of us could cuddle AND discuss Arthur's double-tap), but I thought it important in this fandom to have a little dedicated cuddle time.

Besides, if I had a million to spend on a classy venue and all-expenses-paid for everyone, I'd be disappointed in anything less from those who attended. ;)

I appreciate your enthusiasm, fellow (hypothetical) participant. It took me both seconds to decide what would garner the most interest. xD

Arthur's trousers workshop

Best workshop ever :D

Perhaps I should have made it longer ... Or the rare-pairs lunch would be 3 people in the corner and everyone else bridging the gap between the two workshops. xD

I love all these discussion groups, not to mention all the hours spent on cuddling. ♥ I'd totally participate this con. *nods*

There's nothing to say cuddling can't happen IN the discussions. Just sayin'.

I'm at work and have just had the most frustrating, irritating, stressful... [dissolves into incoherent abortive half-words]... uh, morning.

And then I saw this on my flist, and it opened and released something in my chest. I smiled, which I honestly didn't think I could muster today. You're the best, honestly. I would totally drop everything to sign up for your awesome -con. This sounds like paradise. :D

I'm sorry to hear you had a bad the-other-day, but I'm glad that the thought of days of inception-cuddles was enough to make you smile. <3

I'll put a note with 'Invitation #1' next to your name in my when-not-if-someone-gives-me-a-million box. ;D

It would be because ALL THE CUDDLES, Nance. I'd be claiming you for at least one of those sessions. I mean, I'd share, obvs, but I'd need to get my Nancy-hug fix. ;D

man, if you get the money, I wanna do a Weird Shit you can do in dreams panel. :DDD

And CUDDLEFESTS!

YAY CUDDLEFESTS!!

That's a brilliant idea for a panel! But it'd have to be in two parts, because you'd do the first one and 24 hours later everyone would be "You know what else I thought of ..."

It'd be a good bookend - one at the start and one at the end. Which would mean an extra day and that means another cuddle session. Sounds like a plan! WHEN someone randomly gives me money for this I'll revise the agenda with that in mind. ;DDD

I would say, what about getting Tom/Joe to come along but... I think we'd frighten the crap out of them xD

This sounds amazing. It should happen <3

I KNOW we'd frighten the crap out of them. Though, there's a tiny little curious part of me that'd enjoy watching them trying to cope with a room full of us. xD

Having them on hand would certainly make some of the more demonstrative parts of the workshops more interesting ...
