Nineworlds is a All flavours Geek convention in London I attend. So far I've not missed any and I'm proud to have been one to the Kickstarter backers who enabled the first event to happen.

This year (2018) the event takes place on August 10th-12th 2018 and as it's a residential three day convention the hosting hotel is Novotel London West.

This is the third year that the convention will be held at Novotel London West, which in my opinion is a good thing, because it's not a perfect venue (nowhere is), but it is a vast improvement on the previous convention locations and especially the previous convention hotels.

Now, the phrase 'Geek Convention' is kind of nebulous and may conjure up images of something huge like San Diego Comic-Con or MCM London, or something small like a local university Geek meet, but in all my (limited but varied) years of attending Geek gatherings where you pay to be in a Geek space, nothing else is quite like Nineworlds.

Firstly it's unashamedly a Queer friendly space.
Secondly it's also fiercely inclusive.

I've only ever attended Geek events in the UK, but in my experience (until recently) inclusiveness has been a afterthought if considered at all for most conventions - aside from what they are required to do by law - having disabled toilets is one example.

Nineworlds strives to remain as inclusive possible, despite the fact that being so probably reduces or caps it's audience reach. Catering to the majority is how you make money, thinking about the minority fringe/edge cases is how you create intense loyalty but doesn't always scale.

So what is Nineworlds?

From thier own 'About Pages':

From August 10th-12th 2018 at Novotel London West, join us for three days and nights of discussion, workshops, activities, performances and DJ sets. Meet with creators, fans and academics of your favourite books, films, TV shows, games, and comics. Explore cosplay, crafts, sciences, humanities, and the culture and creativity that underlie them all. Take home new insight, new connections, and new swag from our geek-friendly vendors.

Our venue for 2018 is a large conference hotel with a special price on convention rooms, lots of spaces for content, hundreds of things to explore and experience, and over a thousand fellow adventurers.

But it's sooo much more than "discussion, workshops, activities, performances and DJ sets". It's:
  • A yearly gathering of friends who speak my Geek language.
  • Attended by people who respect each other's pronoun choices.
  • A space where I can use the phrase 'I've run out of spoons' and not have to explain it.
  • A space where I can talk to practically anyone about any geek thing, and we will have the shared understanding that you can critique something you love. All Your Favs are Problematic is not a judgement.
  • A convention that realizes that a having a dedicated member of the organising team be Accessibility Coordinator is crucial to making sure attendees accessibility concerns are addressed,
  • A space that acknowledges that a dedicated Quiet room is a mental health necessity for some people attending conventions,
  • A convention that realises that a clear, and actionable Anti Harassment policy is also a necessity for some people attending conventions.
  • A place that I can attend a Disco that caters to pretty much all types of music you can dance to, whilst also being able to dance whilst Cosplaying.
  • A convention run by and for volunteers who are helpful, approachable and beyond knowledgeable about Geek things.
  • A convention where you are guaranteed to be overwhelmed at the sheer choice of things to do each day.
  • A convention that solicits feedback, is transparent about what feedback they received and strives to take action on what attendees have said.
  • A convention that has personal interaction options baked in via the colour of lanyard/convention badge!
  • A convention that has photo privacy options baked in via the colour of lanyard/convention badge!
  • A convention that has a dedicated vendor space for mainstream and independent vendors (I've met some of my favourite Etsy vendors there)
I have been part of two panels at previous Nineworlds - both of which I co-hosted - and I would never even consider being on a panel at any other Geek convention in the UK.  As an anxious person, just the idea of presenting to a room full of people is exhausting. Add to that the idea that I might be discussing things which personally mean a great deal to me, then I NOPE out of that idea so fast, I leave a me shaped dust cloud behind as I skedaddle.

I'm not a volunteer, simply an attendee but I'm so grateful that so many people give up their precious time and resources to make Nineworlds happen every year.

Every year I have so much fun, make new friends, learn new things, am exposed to new things to love, learn new things about myself, new ways to think about Geekdom and world media, it's a full on mind-rush.

It's the closest I have to a real world Geek space, and it's not perfect, I don't need it to be  - nothing is.

I am fracking glad it exists though.

If you're interested in attending Nineworlds this year - and I strongly urge you to if you can afford it - day tickets are available you don't have to splash out for a full weekend - The full FAQ should answer any questions you have.

Ninewolds holds a special place in my heart, and it will only exist for as long as people attend and also get involved. Remember it's run for fans of everything by fans of pretty much everything.

Today is just a collection of some random fictions / drabbles / excerpts that never really went anywhere.

Drabbles and bits:

Untitled not-quite Drabble-thing #1 July 2010

The days had long since bled into each other, but she knew she was  running out of time.
Low supplies, an almost persistent gnawing thirst, and no map, meant she was either running in circles or close enough that one more day and she would reach sanctuary.

Her biggest barrier? The Guardians between her and the Sleepers wall. Higher than she had ever seen, but no less dangerous in their sunset state.

She decided to run, The Guardians should spot her as a non-sleeper and rescue her. If no rescue, well there were worse things than dying of dehydration.


Untitled not-quite Drabble - thing #2 Date Unknown

The night before the the eclipse the world was normal, and we all took it for granted.
The morning after we didn't remember what normal was.
It only seems to affect personal information.
I can write, and don't struggle with pen and paper, but am entirely not sure if this is where I live. It's merely where I woke up. My mobile keeps ringing but as I don't know the unlock code I'm unable to answer it, at least I assume it's mine.
A little girl wandered in recently and hugged me. Around 4 or 5 she says I might be her Daddy and I wish I knew if that were true.
It might not be so bad if people hadn't become so used to password locking nearly every gadget, and padlocking nearly everything else.
We lost our collective memory, and now everyone has to figure out how to reinvent themselves, without access to any of the keys.


The Misunderstanding

It wasn’t what she thought it was.
Well, it was what she thought it was, but not what it looked like.
Well, actually, it was exactly what it looked like, but not for the reasons she thought.
Uhm.. perhaps I should start at the beginning.
Jayne was a whirlwind personality. Everything about her was a force of nature, She was breathtakingly unique and subverted every assumption everyone ever made about her. Even her name, which should have been so conventional, was spelt in a way which made her stand out.
If  a movie were ever made of my life I would be depicted as meeting Jayne in a some painfully meterosexual nightclub. Somewhere so head - splittingly on the cusp of the ‘now’ that it had to close for one week in every five for complete refurbishment.
The truth, as it normally is, was much more mundane than that. It all started with a carton of a dozen eggs.

Hating Ringtones: August 2008

Jeanine hated novelty ring-tones at the best of times. This one had been ringing for around fifteen minutes. It was slowly driving her to breaking point
“I hate novelty ring tones.”
“Wha?”  Elise dislodged the white ear-bud from her right ear and continued to apply nail varnish with a practised flourish.
“What are you on About?”
“That phone! It’s been ringing on and off for at least fifteen minutes. Someone must have left it in the toilet”
“I can’t hear nuffink”. The company Elise was temping for had gone into receivership. As a result she mostly had to buzz in the odd auditor. Her desk phone never rang.
“If it bothers you that much go and find it. Give it into lost property. Make it their problem.” Shrugging, she replaced her ear-bud.
Jeanine put her desk phone into standby mode and sauntered off towards the toilets. After the first two cubicles proved empty, Jeanine opened the final cubicle door to find squirming on the closed toilet lid the smallest, pinkest, loudest, and worryingly the most naked baby she’d ever seen.

Shocked,  she scampered backwards, causing the flimsy hinged on the cubicle door to give way dropping her with a bone jarring crunch onto the bathroom floor.

The baby, unheeded, continued to wail.

And right from the start I’m going to cheat, even if I’m only cheating against made up rules in my own head.  So it goes.

 Because I am rapidly running out of time (before n=midnight) and brain capacity I’ve decided that my first entry for Campnano to hit (and hopefully maintain) my daily minimum requirement of 500 words per day for the entire month is going to be a list of things I hope to cover over the entire month of doing Campnano. My reasoning is that the list will be a handy reminder of topics should I ever have utter brain freeze - it’s unlikely but not impossible.

Although the titles will most likely change, the substantive content that the titles refer to probably won’t.

Potential Questions:
Q: Why?
A: I was gifted some Doctor Who Story cubes, and needed a reason to not only use them, but put the results online for others to see.

[ I am in no way associated with Story Cubes, nor BBC, nor Doctor Who, nor any of the copyright nor intellectual property holders of any of the aforementioned trademarks/copyright/properties ]

Q: Is this a competition? Is there a prize?
A: No and No. This is not a competition, this is just a writing exercise, inspiration pot, piece of fun.  
There are no prizes other than having the joy of having written something your very own, based on Doctor Who.

Q: Can I take part?
A: Definitely. Just please leave a comment, with a link to your words,  here or on my Twitter account @faintdreams with the hashtag #DrCube so I can add a link to the results blog here, and also let other people see what you wrote.

Q: What do the individual icons mean? 
A: Each dice icon is entirely up to interpretation. The game creators did this deliberately.

From The Story Cubes Website:*

"We get asked for definitions of icons every day - but their meanings are intentionally open, in order to trigger multiple associations. For example the castle can be (literal) castle, or it can refer to a princess, or to someone who is behaving in a  guarded way"

"The 'Master' could be an evil mastermind or a (maniacal) scientist, the 'Dalek' might become a robot servant!  The 'laurel wreath' icon could be a crown worn by a Roman (or Galactic) Emperor: it could also represent a wreath for the dead, or a reward for heroism. You don't find  a Doctor or Companion icon in the set. It is assumed  they will appear in your story - " But they don't have to!

Q: What format should my participation be in?
A: Anything that involves words. This includes - but is not limited to:
A drabble, a poem, a haiku, a screenplay, a brief synopsis,  a short story, a long story, a picture of something you've written, a tweet, a tumblr post, an AO3 (Archive of Our Own) post, A Dream Width post, An [insert your social media of choice] post, your own blog site.  Just make sure it's words. No art, video, puppetry,  audio, or anything that isn't words. Just words.  
Also if you do create an post in a language other than English (please do) please also provide an English translation. Unfortunately I only speak /write/understand English

Q: Why Just Words?
A: This is a writing prompt thang, for fun. Keyword- Writing

Q: Are there any other rules I should be aware of?
A: Nope.  The only limits on your story are the cube icons, and your imagination. Any Doctor, Any Time, Any Space, Any companion, any combination thereof. Have fun.
