Anyway, I know this is far in advance but as prereg has already started and I have an absolutely raging case of con envy from all the people now back from Prophecy, I thought I'd make this post. Next summer there are going to be two Harry Potter conventions, Portus (run by the people who did Nimbus 2003, The Witching Hour, and Lumos) and Terminus (run by the people who did Pheonix Rising).
Portus is in Dallas, July 10-13 2008. Terminus is in Chicago, August 7-11 2008. I'm not sure where I'll be next summer yet (Katie and I are going to try to get internships somewhere, so I honestly could end up pretty much anywhere) but I suspect Chicago would be easier to get to. Terminus is also cheaper. I'll have to wait to register until I can at least somewhat work out what next summer will involve, and by that point Portus will run me $220, and Terminus $160-$180. Both of those are pretty big factors, but I also suspect that a lot more people I know will be going to Portus than Terminus.
ANYWAY, your thoughts on cons, please show them to me.
Have you heard of either Portus or Terminus before now?
Are you planning on attending either convention?
Holy crap question two had a lot of choices.
