I’m working on the next post, thanks for your patience as I do my best to tell it in the best way. You and I are of the same mind, I’ve watched them all too and you’re right, she doesn’t speak much during large group panels and she too prefers the smaller ones when she can speak more and be more active. If I find any videos for the full panel, I will certainly share them here so you too can enjoy. She was so chatty, it was amazing :) In the meantime, here are some clips from that night.
Thank you so much! It pleases me greatly to know my post resonated with you and that you can relate on a personal level and understand the great significance this experience holds for me, as well as the important of Gates & Beverly beyond the show. Finding her twitter is one of the best things that ever happened to me too :) I’m flattered you keep coming back to speak to me tho you haven’t a tumblr, thank you for taking the time. It is my pleasure to share with someone who appreciates what I have to say.
At last! If anyone has been waiting for my super big post about my con experience, well here it is. Before I begin, a few things: 1) please do not reblog this, it is very personal and I don’t want it circulating around the internet so if I can rely on you all to respect this wish I’d appreciate it; 2) I’m still in a bit of a haze from it all because it is quite a lot to take in so I expect bits and pieces might be missing; 3) I will try my very best to convey the depth and meaning this experience has to me and I hope anyone reading will understand or at the very least try to; 4) I think I will do 3 posts, 1 for each day’s experience so please bear with me; and 5) thank you for reading, it’s quite lengthy but thank you if you stay till the end! (Oh and I hope Gates never sees this ever bc I’m about to make myself look like a fool with all the impending gushing lol like srsly she better not see this omg pleaseee)
Now onto the story …
You are quite welcome :) The first post is up! I’ll also reblog onto here, thanks! xx
DENISE: See, we know how to do a practical joke.
MARINA: Anyone else apart from our girls — I will cut you!
GATES: She still will — she’ll be mean.
Ok will do! The posts will definitely be up this weekend, one should be coming tonight, in fact. Do keep an eye out and I’ll reblog it onto here from my personal blog as well so you won’t miss it. Thank you for your interest :D
This is such a wonderful message, oh my gosh. Thank you so much <3 I am writing all about it now and I do hope you enjoy it when I share. I’m so glad to know you like my blog and relate to how much I adore Gates. I do hope you meet her someday too, if there is anyone on this earth to have the pleasure of meeting, it’s her :)
ahhhh please try not to be, the price i pay to have had such lovely moments with the trek ladies is a great one. but there is a compliment in there somewhere, thank you :)
Today I told her everything, everything that happened to me that twisted and damaged my soul and everything she’s done for me to heal me and bring back my will to be alive. It was just me and her and the world melted away. Her concern for me touched me deeply. She held my hands and my face and let me know that I am worthy and then we hugged for a long time. I told her I loved her and she said it right back. Usually I doubt people when they express affection towards me but I believe her. Because when Gates loves, she LOVES with all her heart. And she willingly gave me that blessing and I will always have it. I only ever wanted to meet her and say hello and thank you, and what I got was her genuine love in return, the greatest gift she could ever give me. She is beautiful❤️
In the meantime … OK but selfies with them! THEIR IDEA!
Marina thinks Indians are the most beautiful people in the world. She said I must look into a mirror every day and tell myself “I am gorgeous!” And threatened to slap me if I don’t do it. I love her! I wore my lehenga today because she made me feel beautiful and proud to be Indian.
