Synopsis: The Losers have finally found a lead in their search for Max, but in following it, things don't go particularly smoothly.
Comments: Yuletide 2015. For tommygirl. Hello! Happy Holidays! I really, really hope you like this! It turned out way more plotty than originally intended, which is why I am submitting it like 2 hours before it's due. For something that started out mostly full of hurt/comfort it didn't end up containing a whole lot of it, which is weird, because usually I have the opposite problem with fics. But, yeah. I love Jensen and Cougar, and they are together in this, but it sort of turned out more team oriented than originally planned, as well, which, again, I usually have the opposite happening.
Set after the movie. Tries to deal with some of the gaping plot holes the movie left open in the hope for a sequel, I'd imagine (like actually stopping the bad guy (granted this doesn't do that, either)).
Titles comes from the song 'Into the Darkness,' by The Phantoms.

So, last concert of the year unless something else pops up. This one was at Rams Head, haven't been there in forever. Was not entirely looking forward to this one, given that it was the only one this year a) after the new job and b) not on a weekend, so I had to get up at fucking 530, work 8 hours, not get a nap and then go to this, and then get up at 530 and do it again the next morning, but once we got there it was fine. We left at like 430, grabbed some dinner and got downtown by like 530. Checked into the Rockstar entrace so we could get in first for a chance at the rail and chill in the bar in the meantime. Doors opened at 7. The began the standing around being bored portion of the evening. Also the rail was sticky.

Parachute came on at 8 and played til 850 or so. They did: She Is Love, partially acoustically, as the lead singer, Will, came out solo at first, and the rest of the band came out about halfway through. He also jumped off the piano and nearly broke it, which wouldn't have been good because they seem to share it with Mat Kearney. Then Ghost, Can't Help, Want to Want Me (Jason Derulo cover), Lonely With Me, Kiss Me Slowly, Get Away, What I Know, Something To Believe In and they ended on Didn't See It Coming. Thus began the 30 minutes of nothing in between sets. Managed to get the setlist, almost got a pic. Actually got two setlists, gave one to the girls next to us who we'd been chatting with all night. My camera did not like their lighting so I got like no pictures of them. Dad got a few, since his is better.

Mat Kearney came out at like 920, I think, played til just before 11. He had better lights, so we got better pics, but still not great. Moving On, Count on Me, Fire & Rain, Young Dumb & In Love, Closer to Love, One Black Sheep, a mash-up of New York To California/In the Middle, Where We Gonna Go from Here, Nothing Left to Lose, Undeniable, Runaway - as with the two times we've seen him before, he continued his trend of standing on the rails and jumping down into the crowd. Went in right where Dad was, which was a bit of a surprise to him - She Got the Honey, Heartbeat, Sooner or Later, Billion, and Hey Mama. Encored with Just Kids, Ships In The Night, and then pulled Parachute back out for a Bruce Springsteen cover of Dancing In The Dark. Nailed the setlist for him, too.

After the show, we headed over to Parachute's merch booth, where they were all hanging out. Met them for the third time, which Will, at least, seemed to recall because he was like 'You've been to a show before, haven't you?' and I was like, 'Yeah, at Recher' and we talked about that for a minute (as it has since closed down, which sucks, becasue it was an awesome venue (well, not closed down, but it's like a night club now and nothing interesting happens there)) and I was like 'Yeah, the fist time we saw you guys, you were still Sparky's Flaw,' and he was like 'Wow, that was a long time ago!' and then got them to sign the setlist and take a picture. From there, we headed outside to loiter near the tour buses to see if Mat would come out and sign, but we stuck around for like 45 minutes and he never showed and I had to be awake again in like 5 hours, so. Probably came out right after we left, I'm sure.

Anyhow, awesome concert.

So, saw Ed Sheeran in Washington DC last night.

Dad and I left around 3, anticipating traffic issues because the Pope was flying into DC today. Hit 3 traffic jams, none of which were actually in DC, but still made it there by 5. Grabbed dinner at the Greene Turtle attached to the Verizon Center (delicious Eastern Shore Mac & Cheese – crab meat and macaroni and bacon and onion and cheeseeeeeeeeeeeeee), and then met up with one of my co-workers who bought our extra tickets from me.

Headed in at 6:30, grabbed some drinks, a shirt. Chilled til 7:30 when Christina Perri started up. We’ve seen her as an opener before, maybe a few times? Anyway, she did Shot Me In The Heart, Arms, Run, Distance, Burning Gold, Jar Of Hearts, A Thousand Years and Human. She was done just after 8, I think.

Ed Sheeran started at like 8:45, I think. Went til 10:30. They were recording the show, so they had extra cameras around. He played: I'm a Mess, Lego House, Drunk , Take It Back / Superstition* / Ain't No Sunshine*, One, Photograph, Bloodstream, Tenerife Sea, Don't / Loyal* / Nina, Feeling Good* / I See Fire, Be My Forever (with Christina Perri),I Was Made to Love Her*, Thinking Out Loud (with Stevie Wonders harmonica player?), and The A Team. Encored with You Need Me I Don’t Need You mashed with a song I did not know, and then finished with Sing. It was good, really high energy. Glad we went tonight, though, as tomorrow the Pope is actually doing stuff around the city and that’ll cause nice chaotic traffic shenanigans, I’m sure. Also, phew, first concert since my new job started and damn, getting 3 hours of sleep, working for 9 hours, and then immediately going to a concert (when it is typically nap time), coming home, getting 3 more hours of sleep and working another 9 is exhausting.

Adventurous Day Part 2!

After a traffic-y jaunt from DC to Columbia, Mom and I got to Merriweather around 630. She took off for home, but Dad and I grabbed some food from the mall and found a decent spot in the parking garage across the street from Merriweather. We chilled for a little while, wandered over around 7, and chilled for a while, aware that some inclement weather was incoming.

There was only one opening group - The Antlers, who I have never heard anything by, but have heard of. They were supposed to start at 8 and Hozier as suppoer to start at 9. However, at 745, someone came out and announced that the Antlers would play early and that after, as the storms were rolling in, they'd go on rain delay. They said that anyone under the pavillion (us, luckily) should stay put in their seats, but that anyone on the lawn should go back to their cars until they gave the all clear and then come back in. Sure enough, the Antlers played from 7:50 to 8:10 and then it started storming. It was pretty crazy for a while, some gusty winds, some heavy downpours, lots of thunder and lightning. Unfortunately, none of the storming did much to alleviate the obnoxious humidity.

Anyway, at 915, when things were starting to clear up a bit, they announced that Hozier would be starting at 935, so 20 more minutes to kill. Don't think it ever actually stopped raining, though.

He played a pretty cool set - only one song I wanted didn't get played and looking at past setlists, it appears that it doesn't usually (In The Woods Somewhere). Anyhow, he played: Angel of Small Death & The Codeine Scene, From Eden, Jackie & Wilson, To Be Alone - during that one, he tried to get people to echo the oh's in small bits, but everyone just kept doing the whole thing, lol - Someone New, It Will Come Back, In A Week, Illinois Blues (Skip James cover), Like Real People Do, Arsonist's Lullaby, Sedated, and Take Me To Church. Encored with Cherry Wine, Problem (Arianna Grande cover), and ended with Work Song at 11.

Got soaked on the way out, had a rainy drive home.

Dad and I were worried about pictures at first, because the lighting for the Antlers wasn't spectacular, but the lights for Hozier resulted in some pretty awesome pictures, as did the relatively mellow nature of the concert. We both got some great shots.
Pictures! )

So for Christmas, I got tickets to the Newsies Musical.

But, that is only Part 1 of today's adventurous day of adventure.

Mom and I left the house around 1030 and made it to DC (after some trafficy nonsense) by like 1245ish, I think? We managed to find a place to park without issue, grabbed a rather unimpressive lunch, wandered around Barnes and Noble for a bit and headed to the National Theater, where the show started at 2.

We had pretty awesome seats - like 6th row on the left orchestra - and the building was blissfully cool after the gross humidity outside. The people behind us had no idea what the show was about, like no idea, so it was a rather interesting eavesdropped conversation listening to their theories based on the playbill.

I've seen the movie a ton of times and well, there were a lot of changes.

So I went to C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo).

no titleno titleno title

It was an adventure, to say the least.

I went 45 straight hours without sleep, everything hurt, but it was awesome.

I spent all of Friday night packing and trying (failing) to nap in preparation for the trip to come, but we left for the airport at like 3 in the morning, arrived just after 330, and I was on my own. It was my third time on an airplane (the other two occurrences both being to Orlando (in 1999 and 2008) and my first time flying alone. I flew Spirit, which is an airline that is tiny, but cheap ($200 round trip from BWI to O'Hare!) and works on the idea that if you are going from Point A to Point B with as little as possible, then they're for you. They charge for anything beyond a personal item - not a carry on, carry on's can be bigger than the 16x14x12 dimensions allowed for a personal item. They don't offer drinks or food for free on the flight, and there's no wifi. Only a two hour flight, though, so who can't live without those things?

Made it through security swiftly (not a lot of people in line for that at 345, it turns out). Chilled for a while with my iPod and a book. Had an egg and cheese bagel for breakfast before the plane started boarding and enjoyed a blissfully quiet flight. Took off at 620 (East Coast time) and landed at 720, Chicago time. That hour difference is small, but noticeable.

One bad thing about Spirit is that they are literally the furthest thing away from everything, so there was quite a journey between the super crowded gate we came off of (after 30 minutes of sitting on the runway waiting to get to it) and the taxi pick up place thing. Found a Starbucks along the way and got some caffeine before I got a taxi to the convention center in downtown Chicago. First time in one of those, too.

Got to McCormick Place at like 9, but you couldn't get onto the floor until 10, so sat around for a while and enjoyed the cosplayers. Found Waldo almost instantly, and spotted a rather creepy AHS clown lurking nearby, too.

Finally, at 10, the mass rush began.

I headed for the autograph lines first. Jason Momoa (Kahl Drogo on Game of Thrones) was my first goal. He was supposed to start signing at 10, but he did not show up until like 1115. Apparently, he'd gone to the gym for his daily workout and he'd gotten held up somewhere along the way and Chicago traffic did nothing to speed the situation along. Missed the one panel I wanted to see because of the delay, but eh, what can you do?

He finally showed up, though, and I got him to sign my Game of Thrones script (signed by George R R Martin (I won it in a Barnes and Noble contest that I have never had any recollection of entering)).

From there, I wandered around a bit, as I didn't have anything I needed to do until 1 something.

Met Doug Walker (Nostalgia Critic) at the Channel Awesome booth. Got a poster signed and a picture with him.

Headed to the Thrilling Adventure Hour booth and purchased the TAH Concert Film and Beyond Belief #1 (so I didn't have to spend a week badgering my comic shop for it, yay!)

Wandered back toward the autograph area and saw that Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell on Game of Thrones) had finally arrived. He was supposed to be there at 1030, but this was going on 12 and we never did get an explanation for his considerable delay. Got him to sign the book, as well.

Did some more general wandering - finally tracked down the booth selling Dragon Age stuff (Sanshee) and bought a set of pins (though sadly only 1 of the 2 sets, as the other was sold out). Around this time, the messenger bag I'd been lugging around gave up on me. One of the metal hook things just straight up snapped on me, so I had to finagle the strap into a knot around the handle that would hold up for the rest of the day - threw off the balance of the thing, though, so it killed my shoulders, that was fun.

Photo-Op with the Thrilling Adventure Hour was the next thing I had to do, that was at 1. Lined up a little early, wasn't too far back in the line. They were all super super super nice. They asked what else I was gonna do at C2E2 and I was like 'I'm gonna see your shows tonight, flew all the way from Maryland to see you guys!' which they were happy to hear. I'd been awake for 21 hours at this point, which they seemed impressed by, as well. Asked what I wanted to do for the photo and I was just like 'I dunno,' and they were like 'Goofy? Awkward high school photo? Serious?' I went with goofy and got this:

no title

From there did some more aimless wandering, thought about getting food, but lines were all too long.

Bounced back to the Channel Awesome booth to get a better picture than the one I'd taken before.

Tried to get in line for Marc Evan Jackson/Timothy Omundson autographs, but they'd capped the line before I got to it.

Killed time until 230, when the Game of Thrones Photo-Op was happening. Jason Momoa was late to that, too, which set back his Photo-Ops, Finn Jones' Photo-Ops AND the GoT Photo Ops, so that was more standing in lines, and a much more fly-by experience than TAH had been. Here is that picture:

no title

Had more time to kill and had done everything I'd wanted to by this point, so more aimless wandering until it got late enough to leave. Spent a good twenty minutes trying to get the useless Curb App to work, never did get it to, finally ended up just grabbing one of the cabs around the convention center, had a really awesome driver for that leg of the trip, he gave me a quick tour of stuff we passed along the way and I explained why people were wandering around in crazy costumes.

The Thrilling Adventure Hour show was at a place called the Chop Shop in Wicker Park. The first show didn't start til 8, but I got there around 530ish, I think. Headed up to the bar to grab some food - ended up with a tasty burger and fries, a hard cider, then a rum and coke. Chatted with the dude next to me for a while (he was taking some crazy church history class (studying to become a pastor, I think?)) and loitered around until they opened the doors downstairs for the show.

Got a front row seat and killed some time talking to a really nice couple who ended up sitting next to me about TAH stuff and Welcome to Night Vale stuff and C2E2 stuff. Show started at like 815, went til 910 or so and proved to be truly awesome. Show 1 was an adaption of the first two issues of the TAH Sparks Nevada Image Comic books. Show 2 was the 3rd and 4th, which aren't out yet. So I totally know how that ends now. It was awesome, so so so so so awesome.

no title

The only unfortunate thing was that they kicked us all outside between the shows and then let us all back in. Thought for sure I wouldn't get back in the front row, but managed it. Show 2 started at 10, ended a little after 11. Hung around for a while and got my comic signed by Marc Evan Jackson, Mark Gagliardi, Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, Scott Adsit, Timothy Omundson, Craig Cackowski and Autumn Reeser (missed John Ross Bowie, Hal Lublin and Janet Varney). Got pictures with Marc Evan Jackson, Mark Gagliardi and Timothy Omundson before heading out. Got 2 signed posters, too, one for each ticket (though each is missing some signatures? one is missing John Ross Bowie, Craig Cackowski and Timothy Omundson and the other is missing Ben Acker and Scott Adsit)

Tried the Curb App again with no success, ended up just grabbing one that was going by for the trip back to the airport. By this time I'd been awake like 32 hours.

Got to the airport around midnight, got my boarding pass and discovered security was closed until like 330. So, 3 hours of waiting in the bafflingly freezing main part of the airport, where there was a shortage of any food or beverage places. Read for a bit, tried to nap, but it was too fucking cold. Ended up eating up my data plan chatting with a friend in Hawaii for a while to keep sane (though I suspect I wasn't, given the craziness of that saved conversation). Finally got through security (sadly food/beverage was out of reach until 430). By this point, I was hella sore (from the bag and the walking and possibly the shivering?) and the hike back to the Spirit gate was torture.

Longest four hours ever, at that point.

Tried to sleep, couldn't. Tried to read, couldn't. Tried to internet, couldn't. Music was nice, but not enough. Food helped a little, at like 5, but that's around when he chaos started, too.

See, BWI must not have a lot of Spirit flights, but holy hell O'Hare had a ton. And Spirit only had 2 gates. Planed must have been coming in early or late or in the wrong order because they kept shuffling the departure gates around. There were two girls working the gates, who were running around like crazy the whole time I was there.

Also, I have no idea how I was more aware and coherent than 95% of the other airport patrons. Seriously, I was up to 42 hours by the time my plane started boarding, and somehow I could rattle off the altered gates for like 6 different flights. It's not like they weren't announcing it every five freaking minutes, but every minute or so someone would walk up to the gate their boarding pass said they should be at and you could just see the panic on their faces when a different place was listed. Sheesh.

no title

Finally got on the plane at like 810 (a good 40 minutes after we were supposed to start boarding). Ended up in one of the slightly bigger seats because I'd asked to swap my middle seat for an aisle (yay!). We were supposed to land in Baltimore at 11:01, but despite leaving late, we got in at like 10:50. Up to 44 hours now. Made the hike away from the Spirit gates again.

My parents were there to pick me up, but instead of just meeting me somewhere outside, they parked on the opposite end of the airport.

By this point, I was sort of hysterical. I needed to sleep and everything hurt and I thought I was so close and then the car was like so far away. I lost it a little, there.

Finally got in the car and finally got home and had a long shower and then I crashed out from 1 to 9, woke up for food, stayed up til 3, and then crashed out again until 1.

All in all, it was fun, but if I go next year I am getting a hotel.
