GridLOCK DC Maryland Ren Fest Meetup

We’ve heard from a lot of GridLOCK members that people are interested in some meetups after the con. So let’s go to the MD Ren Fest! We’re looking at the first two weekends in October. Please fill out the linked survey so we know when people are available. More information on the festival is available here.

Twitter user @bethodology made these fantastic graphic notes for us while sitting on several of the GridLOCK DC 2014 panels. Thank you!

Presented at gridlockdc, August 16, 2014.

Summary:  What happens when we analyze the characters and narrative arcs of BBC Sherlock through a Potterverse interpretive lens? Does it shed light on the Sherlock-Moriarty dynamic to read the rooftop showdown as a version of the Final Battle between Harry and Voldemort? If we read Mary Morstan as a version of Snape, can it help us make sense of her motivations and predict where her story is going?

Attention all GridLOCK DC 2014 attendees!

We’d love to hear from YOU! This year’s event was a labour of love, and very much a trial run for future events. We would love to bring GridLOCK back for 2015, but we need your feedback first!

What was your favorite part of the event? Your least favorite part? Did you like the location? Would you come back next year? You can provide feedback, and help us plan a future event, by filling out our post-con survey! 

And even if you weren’t able to make it to this year’s event, we would love to know what you may want to see in 2015!

"So why are you talking to me?"
“Mrs. Hudson took my skull.”
“So I’m basically filling in for your skull.”
“Relax. You’re doing fine.”
