That Fandom Osmosis panel was a BRILLIANT idea--I'm so glad you had fun with it! (Would you consider re-posting the questions to LJ? I'd love to know what you came up with.) And I'm glad you enjoyed MJ in general! Cons are one of the greatest things in life, IMO, and I'm sorry I couldn't make this one because I would have loved to have met you.

As in, you're at a con being SUPER social, then it ends and you're suddenly ALONE

YES. And honestly, I have also specifically planned so that it's not so much a drop as a tapering-off, and it STILL sucks, because it's like ripping of the band-aid (plaster?) slooooooooowly and then it STILL ends sadly. SADNESS. Completely, one thousand percent worth it! But SADNESS.

I feel like I DID get to see everyone I didn't necessarily get to really spend time with everyone I wanted to

This is indeed a very common thing. Cons are an amazing/frustrating combination of "OMG, so many people I love all in one place!" and "SHIT, so many people I love ALL IN ONE PLACE FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY." I'm an extrovert and I adopt an "I'll sleep when I'm dead" approach to cons and I STILL don't feel like I ever have enough time. It can help to plan specific hangout time with people in advance, but even so, I always feel like I missed people. Fannish commune! It should happen! :)

Anyway. I'm so glad you had such a great time!
