I JUST MET CHRIS.
So I got a shitty audio but basically I couldn’t speak at first and he said hi and then I said hi. Then I told him “so I know you’re gonna be on Jimmy Fallon tonight” and then I stopped breathing for a second, and he looked up at me and smiled encouragingly so I went on and said “so ok he does that funny thank you notes thing” and Chris goes “oh yeah yeah” and I’m like holding out the box going “so I made you thank you notes” and he’s saying thank you before I finish because he realized what it was.
And so then he says “I played uh, charades with Halle Berry today, so that’ll be on tonight” and I take a moment to fucking stare at him and he dOES IT AGAIN AND SMILES AT ME WAITING FOR ME TO CALM DOWN AND FIND WORDS so then i’m like “I’ll watch it!”
And I watch him sign my third book and realize I have more time so I say “I started the book, I love it” and he says “yeah? You like it so far?” And I go “I’m scared” and Alla laughs and he goes “You like it?” Because I said it sO QUIETLY and I say “Yeah, I love it but I’m scared” and he’s laughing a bit and asks “oh no, why’re you scared?” and I say “it’s getting to a really bad part, I’m near the end”, pointing to my bookmark sticking out and he’s like “OH, you’re almost done with it, oh okay.” and I’m like “yeah, looks like it’s getting to a really bad part” and Chris, eVER THE SMUG ASSHOLE GOES “Oh good good”, looking pretty pleased, and I practically whisper thank you and he says bye and that was the best minute of my life
ALSO EARLIER IN THE Q&A HE ANSWERED MY QUESTION AND SAID MY NAME WRONG SO I CORRECTED HIM AND HE WAS LIKE, OH, IT’S SHANIA, THAT’S COOL

Wendy, I'm so happy you had such a nice time yesterday.
I hope everyone else from this little community here who get to see him these next few days has similar good experiences.  neutre 


I don't know if this was here yet (it's hard to keep up), but this is a very lovely picture of Alla:

Alla's dress is nice and so is her job, which she seems to do well since Chris has worked with her, what over two years now? Lets just admit we all want her job.

And again these lovely stories of people meeting him and him being very patient with his fumbling fans.

Ranwing wrote:Just got home. Here is my report.

First of all, Chris has got to be one of the most charming, clever, fun loving person that I've ever seen. There is just nothing fake or phony about him. He seemed as genuinely happy to see us as we were to see him. When he arrived, the applause was petty deafening - the crowd was so large that we completely filled the first and second seating areas. There were more people waiting on line on the 2 floors below us so if we're going just by numbers, the first signing was a roaring success.

Chris arrived and the first thing was to reveal the winners of TLOS fanart contest and there were some really lovely pieces that were selected. He then talked about how amazing all the art was and what was picked was just the tip of the iceberg. The second thing he did was take a selfie with the crowd. Sadly I was too far back (and to the left) to fit in. But that set the tone for the evening.

The next part of the festivities was the Q&A and sadly my question wasn't picked but there were some interesting ones that did reveal a few possible and interesting prospects. He is open to doing TLOS as a graphic novel and is now more open to possibly having TLOS made into a motion picture. He explained why he was somewhat resistant to the idea previously (because he wants the books to stand on their own) and how it was a real challenge for him to be taken seriously as a writer. He was asked what Broadway part he would be interested in playing and after a lot of hmming and hawing, decided that Gabe from Next to Normal would be an interesting part to play. He then read a selection from the new book (doing all the voices, which was an absolute scream).

Then it came time for the signing and I'll give the B&N staff credit with how smoothly they handed the huge number of people. We went up in rows so that there wasn't a mad rush to the where Chris was sitting and everyone had their books ready. About twenty minutes after it started, it was my turn and there I was... face to face with one Mr. Christopher Paul Colfer. I thanked him for doing the signing and he thanked me for coming. I asked him how Brian handled him traveling so much (not well) and I told him how my cat sulks when I travel. We then shook hands it was over.

Now the fangirl in me is going to have a major squee - I TOUCHED CHRIS COLFER!!!!!  panik And he is as gorgeous in real life as he is on tv. I've got all three TLOS books autographed and while I'm very tired, I'm very happy. The only downside is that I didn't get too many decent pictures (my phone was starting to die and I was just a hair too far back to really get any close-ups). It was an evening well spent.

Thanks for the very lovely recap, glad you had a great time!

I love reading about Chris' interaction with fans.  wub

Have a great time! You're lucky that you have a time and didn't have to hang out in the book store all day.

On July 8th, 2014, I met my hero, Chris Colfer, for the first time. It was the most amazing experience of my life. I love him so much and seeing him made me extremely happy, in an unexplainable way. I couldn’t help crying like a baby and grinning widely. I can’t describe how amazing it was and how happy I am.

I MET CHRIS!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!!
So like, I met Chris and he’s like literally the most beautiful person in the world.  I am not joking. 
I can’t remember much because I was freaking out, but here’s how I believe it went.
Chris: Hey! How are you?
Me: We made you a board game!  (http://bananafanfics.tumblr.com/post/91319874520/the-land-of-stories-game-it-took-forever-but-im)
Chris: What!?! 
Me: Yeah, we worked really hard on the pieces and wanted you to see them.
Chris: Amazing! *looks at pieces* these are spot on.  Wow, thank you!
And he told us (I don’t remember the exact words) that he had some meetings about board games but nothing can compare to what we made!  Ahhhhh!  After that I awkwardly forced him to shake my hand, which I still cringe thinking about, but I touched Chris so it’s worth the embarrassment.






So, the TLOS could be a board game some day.

I hope this happens.
