Optional: If you would like your secret's fandom to be noted in the main post along with the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret. If your secret makes the fandom obvious, there's no need to do this. If your fandom is obscure, you should probably tell me what it is.

Optional #2: If you would like WARNINGS (such as spoilers or common triggers -- list of some common ones here) to be noted in the main post before the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret.

Optional #3: If you would like a transcript to be posted along with your secret, put it along with the link in the comment!

Some of you might remember me, and a few of you might remember that I've had severe allergy problems three times now with Madison in the spring, so, unusually for me, here is a 'care and feeding' post letting people as are interested know what I will and won't be up to this weekend.

I am trepidacious, and also excited.

Edited to add: Room Acquired! Woo! See you at WisCon!

Hello!

I'm trying to pull together a spur of the moment trip to WicCon and I'm hoping to find someone looking for a roommate. This will be my first WisCon and I'm hoping for a last minute miracle. Did someone if your group have to drop out unexpectedly? Or do you know someone who needs a roommate? I can happily fill the slot!

I'm a 41 y/o cis queer woman (she/hers) non-smoker, courteous and quiet. New to WisCon but not new to cons in general (I've attended WindyCon and Capricon regularly for the last few years) Hoping to experience my first WisCon this year! Can you help me out? Shoot me an email at amyshy at gmail dot com.

Thanks in advance!

I know this is a last-minute shot in the dark, but I'm looking for a room-share. I'm a female introvert whose hobbies are reading and knitting, and fandoms are Yuuri on Ice!!! and SF. I'm willing to pay 1/people in room of cost if you have a place for me.

It's SF/F convention season again, and once more we are all presented with the conundrum --

Do I hug this person hello and goodbye, or not?

Social hugging! It's a thing! Yet, it is MOST DEFINITELY NOT A THING for a lot of people.

Here is how I, personally, navigate these situations. While this may not work perfectly for you, feel free to modify it for your own use.

If I want to hug a person hello or goodbye, I say to them, "Do we hug?" (Or, "do we hug hello?" etc.)

If they say "Yes, we hug!" then we do, indeed, hug.

If they say *anything else*, I back off and we do not hug.

If someone says to me, "do we hug?" and I *want* to, I say "yes, we hug!" and there is a hug.

If I do not want to hug this person at this moment, I say one of the following things, or something similar:

I don't recall us hugging
I'm not much of a hugger
I don't think we hug
Now's not a great time
Not that I know of

If the other person does not understand the soft no and moves in, I take a step back and say:

No thank you
Now now
I meant no

If my hug offer is rejected, I move into the next part of the conversation "It's great to see you! How have you been?" or "I'm so glad we talked, when's your next panel?" or something similar. If I have just rejected someone else's hug offer, same script. No apologies, no talking about feelings or misunderstandings, just move into the next phase of the social interaction.

I, personally, do not enjoy finding out later that I have made someone uncomfortable with my actions. I prefer clear communication BEFORE social hugging to try to avoid awkwardness afterwards. YMMV!
