Leaving before the sun came up, I started my day in Sango. After stops for fuel and food, we made it to Coralville around 9am and waited in line. Phantom had pre-regged, but Commander and I were stuck in the at the door line that wrapped around the inside of the building. We began talking to Sailor Anime and Suzaku, who were in Hetalia cosplay. They began making friends with Commander and, after a while, invited her to stay in line with them. After telling them that I was how she was able to make it, they brought me over too. Got my badge around 11am, wander around con, got some pictures taken, then went to my InuYasha photoshoot. Made some new friends there before I had to check into my room and change into Raimei as soon as I could. Ended up being late to my own Nabari shoot. Had a great time with the group and then Sylus and I walked to each others hotels to change, her into Reno and me into England. Upon walking back to the con, we found out the Square Enix shoot was botched and we missed it. So we turned around and grabbed dinner with Kitty. Went around the con for a bit, changed into rave!England and went to the bar with my partner, Ammy. People were already there to celebrate my birthday with me. After some drinks, I split off with some people and had a blast. Ended up being so tired that I fell asleep in my full cosplay.
Waking up freaking out that I had left my contacts in and that I'd slept in late, I quick changed into casual wear. What was supposed to be a breakfast date with Ammy turned into just walking around the con with her. After about an hour, we had to part ways. I ran back to my hotel to change into Kurama. At the con, I participated in a YYH themed game show panel run by Silver and a photoshoot later. After that I went and crashed the Hetalia shoot and gave my last flower to a Russia cosplayer. Went back to my room, showered and TOOK A NAP! Let me clarify that my schedule is usually too busy for me to have this kind of free time. After waking up on my own a couple hours later, I changed into Olette and took some pics with Songstress as Namine. Then we poked around the con, I sat down and talked with fans, hit up a couple shoots and panels. then waited for the competition to let out. I had plans with Ammy that ended up getting cancelled because the competition let out so late, on top of her being in a bad mood. Since the night ended on a downer I just decided to go back to my room. I was gonna go back to bed and call it a night, but Seifer and I had a drink to celebrate my birthday and he talked me into going to the rave. he and I helped each other into our cosplays (Axel and Kurama) and we made our way to the con, stopping to talk to Friskies on the way. Once we got there, some drama happened that I won't go too deeply into. Let's just say I had to play middle man and ended up not doing the rave, so my night was wasted.
Waking up and getting into a loose fitting England, we threw all my junk into Phantom's car and I began my search for Ember and her friends. I sadly didn't find any of them until I came across Kirk by accident after hanging out with Sylus for several hours. We went out for lunch to get to know each other better, then came back to do our cracky, mpreg photoshoot. After many laughs and a LOT of prodding, we
