Anime: The Novel!
2: Mission Impossible (Part I)
The line moved
differently depending on whether you wanted something autographed by one
of the guests, two, or all three. I was adamant about not having
anything signed by Johnny. Donít get me wrong, heís a great guy, but
I donít go around getting peopleís autographs just Ďcause
theyíre a great guy. Otherwise I wouldíve gotten autographs from
Zipp Dementia and Davidicus the cameraman. :P No, the fact remains that
Johnny is still Nero, and I want nothing to do with Nero. I went
straight for Dan!
How are you doing?Ē I asked. He recognized me from this morning and
said his day had gone well. I handed him my Note of Naught and he signed
it with a silver marker. I truly could not believe where I was...
standing right next to the people who breathe life into characters I
have worshipped for so long... seeing them, talking to them. It was
Even though Dan
was nothing like Vergil in person, he was amazingly charming, and sweet,
and very, very huggable!
Reuben was making faces behind my back... ^_^;;
have anything DMC-related for Dan to sign that time, but she gave him
her notepad and told him to write whatever he wanted in there. Soo... he
wrote the entire Sonnet 18 by Shakespeare. O.o; O.O;; *_*
I saved Reuben
for last so that if anything went wrong I would be able to run away.
Reuben complimented me on my costume and got down to signing.
Boy oh boy how
the hell was I supposed to pull this off?? Jo was nearby, and Reuben was
very different from Dan. Dan was always genuinely friendly, silly, and
outgoing, but Reuben was a lot more aloof. He was playful and casual
with Dan and Johnny, but among people he didnít know he was calm,
modest, and formal. He was pretty much how Iíd be if I was ever in his
position, so I could relate to that, but it didnít make him any more
approachable. How could I possibly bring up my crazy fangirlish request?
I kiss you?... May I kiss you?... It would make me the happiest woman
alive if I can get a picture of me kissing you.....
ď...Can I hug
well, I still had the Autograph/Photo session on Sunday. ~_~;
notice that I look happier hugging Dan than Reuben. Thatís because I
was. Indeed, I would jump on the chance to glomp Dan but I was terrified
of even touching Reuben. More on that later...
I held the Note of Naught aloft for several minutes to let the ink dry and put it safely in a plastic protector, yet Danís silver ink somehow still managed to smudge. In fact, it is STILL rubbing off as I write this a week later! AAAAAAHHH!!! VERGIL NOOO!!! ;_; I was crushed and didnít know what to do. I couldnít exactly trace over his writing, it would defeat the purpose. I also didnít want my Note of Naught to have a smudged autograph by Dan. I would definitely have to come again on Sunday and have him re-sign it.
