10 years ago in 08, I was 12 &my sister& I went to DragonCon for the first time. It was our first convention in general (&the start of many more after) You know why? Because of this man, Vic Mignogna. Because my sister was a fan of FMA and that somehow led her to find videos on YouTube of old panels of the voice actors from FMA at cons. Especially ones of Vic, telling different stories & talking about his shows. And my sister was like “that seems really great. Hey, the guy that voices Ed is going to be at this con that’s only 2 hours away from us” and so she bought us tickets and got us reservations at the Marriott (Dragon Con people know how hard that is now lol and how expensive) and we went to our first con that year and I know we went and waited in line at the hall of fame & we went to meet him and because of how it was set up I don’t think he was doing pictures or they cost or something and it also cost for an autograph (Which, almost everywhere else he can he never charges for photos or autographs, or that’s how it used to be) anyways so my sister paid for him to sign my dragon con schedule book thing and I still have it to this day. The last picture to the left is from last year when we went because it was the mark of going for 10 years and magically, he was attending after he hadn’t in years and so this happened. & the other 3 are from 08, 09 & 2016 I printed out 2 copies and brought him one and told him about how coming to see him is always the best part of the cons and getting a hug is even better & he was so sweet & touched by the photo & he signed it for me and I gave him his copy & he said “only if you sign it for me!!” & I was so nervous but so happy (and in hindsight I should’ve already like pre-written on the back of the photo and signed it or something but oh well.) & then my sister and I asked for a hug & as we were going to walk away he said to me “let’s do this every chance we get!!” Or something like that and it just warmed my heart so much.
