I love cookies baking. During the winter, they have these candles that smell like cookies, and I always buy like a hundred of them.

As some of you know, I’d been working on a project to give to Jared for awhile now, and because Ela so generously let me use her autograph ticket, I got the chance to do that at Dallascon. I especially want to thank joaellaine for not only giving us permission to use her art on the front and in the booklet, but for going above and beyond to design the cover for us and also offering to draw a whole new piece to include (bottom pic) on very short notice. The pictures really don’t do it justice, but it came out just stunning and everyone I got to share the booklet with this past weekend especially loved the cover art. This booklet also wouldn’t have been possible without the invaluable contributions from jaredbottoms, sweetsamofmine, safiyabat, charmingsammy, and clervescent, as well as the 100+ letters submitted by fans uwu. It ended up being over 90 pages long and that 3rd picture is the letter we wrote as an introduction. The booklet consists of more than just the fan letters, it’s got meta, fanart, graphics, and cute headcanons and everything is sourced, and it has a table of contents for Jared to easily navigate through everything.
So after Jared laughed at the picture I handed him to sign, I tried to bring the booklet into his line of sight but my hands were actually trembling and it probably looked like I was going to drop it, so he took it from my hand (!!!!) before I’d fully told him what it was. I know the Creation employees don’t appreciate lingering so even though I’d been okay up until then, my voice started shaking as I did my best to explain it to him quickly. He gave the cover a thorough look, turned it landscape-wise and read the title and looked at the art while I told him that a couple other Sam girls and I had put something together to show him how we see Sam and how much he means to us. I’d been meaning to tell him how important Sam has been to me the last three years if I got to ask him my question during the panel, so I’m happy I got the chance to tell him that here. Then I told him that more than 100 fans had sent in letters for him, too. At that, he looked up at me in surprise. I think he was doing it for my benefit because I know he received a similar letters-only project at JIB Con but his face was so kind and earnest and he gave me his full attention, I couldn’t help but feel my heart flutter when he was looking directly into my eyes so sincerely. Quite a few of the people who submitted an entry asked me take a picture of him with the booklet and I brought it up but he was flanked by at least four Creation employees at the time, so I quickly moved on when the two closest to him started glaring daggers at me. (Do I get points for bravery, though?) He smiled at me in that disgustingly honest way he has and said he can’t wait to read it (I hope so!) and was nodding his head as he looked back down at it. I picked up my autograph and started walking away, but I quickly turned back around and told him my friend was also bringing him a gift that went with it and I didn’t want to spoil it, but he was going to love it. I’m pretty timid with people I don’t know well, so I’m not sure where that came from, but he smiled at me really big and it was really sweet and gross please I am only human.
Overall, even though I wish I’d gotten to say more, it was a wonderful experience and I walked out feeling like I was floating.
