Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!

Seeing as I'll be starting the bulk of my English classes this fall, I decided to write down my VidCon experience in order to practice writing over the summer. I'm not used to sharing this much of my thoughts and feelings on such a public level, so please forgive me if I come across the wrong way. I also want to apologize if I have incorrectly portrayed R&L. Memories are only so accurate, as all good Mythical Beasts should know. Perceptions of people can also be way off. (Yes, I'm hedging.)

The account is rather lengthy, so I put it on my DeviantArt page instead. Here it is if you guys are interested.

Oh, ya, that totally makes sense! :) And since I have not gotten to meet them, your story is a window into what it might be like if I ever did. :)

Thanks, Hannah! ^_^ I'm glad you liked it! I've never been one to keep a journal, but I found writing this down to be a great way to remember the experience. I'm the kind of person that can get really caught up in stories that I read, so when I go back and re-read this I feel like I'm reliving it... I hope that makes sense (and doesn't sound creepy), lol.

I could see myself writing in a similar style if I ever got to meet Rhett and Link. :) I actually teared up a bit reading this. Thanks for sharing your story! :)

@Nolan I'm honored to have scored so high on the squirrel scale!

@Mattea Thank you so much! I did have a wonderful time! ^_^

@Victoria Hahaha! I'm glad being such a fangirl has some unexpected upsides! ;-)

@Alexis -- You get some slack due to what was certainly travel/excitement/fangirl adrenaline. ;)

Oh my god! I felt your own excitement when I was reading this! (By the way, beautiful writing) I'm so happy you got to see them; I went, but couldn't make it Saturday to meet them. But all in all still had a wonderful time! Hope you did too! (Of course you did... I'm just trying to make the ending less awkward)

It scored an amazing 100 1 BAZILLION on the squirrel scale, very well written!

Thanks, Victoria! I'm glad you liked it, too! ^_^

... I'm also glad you all are forgiving of my lack of proofreading. I looked over it again and noticed that if it were being graded, there would be little red marks everywhere, lol.

I loved your post, Alexis! The humorous moments really shone through in your writing.

It was nice to live vicariously through you for a bit in meeting Rhett and Link. It's really cool that they recognized you and the knitting you've sent them!

Thanks guys! You are all very kind. ^_^

Hahaha, Gumbo! It would be very interesting if my dad was a GloZell fan. In truth, he wasn't interested in Vidcon at all. He just didn't want his little girl to go all the way across the country by herself, lol. He's actually pretty content with peace and quiet, so a few days to relax in the hotel room was enough to keep him happy.
