Any Scottish people or people who are near Glasgow? (126)

1 Name: DarthRevanShepard : 2009-10-25 10:03 ID:aCvCVmzr

Are there any fellow Scots out there who like fanfiction or simply people who are near Glasgow?

2 Name: JayLewis : 2009-10-25 14:22 ID:YcpxZsxP

I'm in Aberdeen and been writing fanfiction for over 5 years. I'm more of an anime/manga fanfic writer, but read other areas too.

3 Name: Devine.Wonderland (fanfiction.net) : 2009-10-26 08:56 ID:gtrJlBFs

I live in a small town near both edinburgh & Glasgow and am interest in Twilight fan-fic.

4 Name: QueenoftheMods : 2009-10-26 13:52 ID:QpQZw2vz

Dumfries! S/W Scotland! :D
Yes, I laaav FF (:

5 Name: DarthRevanShepard : 2009-10-26 14:14 ID:3RPj0mtV

I thought I was the only one!

6 Name: CastielxAngel-x : 2009-10-29 05:52 ID:hNvGqU9R

I'm in East Lothian, which is a few miles from Edinburgh, but I am in Glasgow quite often.

7 Name: Hellofellow scots!! : 2009-10-29 08:57 ID:IRyd9PIa

I'M FROM ABERDEEN TOO!!!! small world, not sure why I am so excited about that jay lewis but I am! Fit like?

8 Name: Coahime : 2009-10-29 11:08 ID:RHM4o+Os

I think meetings will be good

9 Name: JayLewis : 2009-10-29 15:31 ID:yOSlJyIj

>>7 Holy smokes!!! Thought I'd be the only one from the granite city on here!

I'm nae bad, fit like yerself?

Though for the record, I don't live in the city itself, but only like 5 minutes out of it.

10 Name: gabster357 : 2009-10-31 13:30 ID:ZluVFLCj

Yeah, thats a great idea! Some of us, like me for example, would like to be a writer or a part time writer and this would be great practice to set it out like a real book. I never knew you could actually post pictures on fanfiction :)

11 Name: silver-hedgehog : 2009-10-31 15:47 ID:Q+/ihMum

Can you? This is something to look into. But I stink at drawing. And out of curiousity, does anyone happen to live in Balloch or Dumbarton?

12 Name: Anonymous : 2009-10-31 16:53 ID:IyP+jJXT

>>11
No, you can't. If you wanted to, you have to post it somewhere else... like on a personal blog or something.

13 Name: DarthRevanShepard : 2009-10-31 17:20 ID:w3FxvOIg

You could try posting it on deviantART and put a link to the story.

14 Name: RayRay : 2009-10-31 22:11 ID:pA2nou4m

I'm from Helensburgh silver-hedgehog! I went to school in Dumbarton, though I'm now in northeast england.

15 Name: Ghille Dhu : 2009-11-01 10:13 ID:AL/pprOA

I'm live not far from glasgow. I also do like fanfiction. Glasgow is just a train ride away.

16 Name: Hellofellow scots!! : 2009-11-01 11:15 ID:IRyd9PIa

Och ya ken, aye chavin awa! I know, someone else fae the deen,-did not expect that! I moved away for uni a couple of years ago but i lived right on the edge, by the airport. Everyone down here laughs at my accent though-it's a sair fecht! ps don't know how to reply to your thingy-it's a wee bit beyond my computer skills!

17 Name: RoseMMBlack : 2009-11-01 12:16 ID:soSO9/Em

I live near falkirk. Ya know? I know weegies, one my firend who beats the crap out of me and I beat the crap out her cus we're bored. Weegie are scary, can we meet somewhere close to but not in glasgow? I;m small thier eat me! ;D
Oh joking, I love to meet some people on this site. I love writing and fan-fic want I do.

Amazong how you accent comes out were your tlaking to other scots right? no wonder the English and Anerica can't udnerstand us! right caps?!

18 Name: DarthRevanShepard : 2009-11-01 12:22 ID:14QWftGU

lol I went tae Florida for ma holidays at Christmas and it was so funny. Naebdy could understand me. And a canny go anywhere other than Glasgow, age prohibits it.

19 Name: Anonymous : 2009-11-01 14:23 ID:IyP+jJXT

So, the question is: where in Glasgow? Glasgow does not seem to be the smallest city in the world.

20 Name: DarthRevanShepard : 2009-11-01 14:33 ID:14QWftGU

Well, somewhere full of people would be the best place, and a place where people underage like myself could have an eye kept on them. Perhaps Braehead, The Forge, Xscape or Hollywood Bowl wood be the best places.

21 Name: Ghille Dhu : 2009-11-01 15:06 ID:OjfD/bnn

DarkRevanShepard that would be fantastic for me as I am also underage, we could also bring along some friends for safety purposes. Braehead would be good. I try not to let my accent get into my typing because my english teacher will murder me.

22 Name: Mikeru-D : 2009-11-02 12:23 ID:PETzl3uy

Anyone from the Three Towns area, Ayrshire? Specifically Auchenharvie Academy? Don't really think so. Didn't expect so many Scots! ^_^

23 Name: Death-of-Penguins : 2009-11-02 13:46 ID:GIeR0G/s

Just thought I'd chuck in that I'm near Glasgow. East Kilbride... If you find anywhere more miserable, do tell. I didn't think there was gonna be a lot of Scots either...Huh...

24 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-03 08:07 ID:m30LFx6Z

Hi guys, just like to say that I'm from Kilmarnock (@22 That's EXXTREAMLY close to you)

I'd like to be co-in-charge of a meet-up in Glasgow for next year. If anyone wants to help please let me know! E-mail is rachelhez@msn.com

I was only just contacted today about this site but I'm already excited and buzzing for the future!

Hoshi xXx

25 Name: RayRay : 2009-11-03 09:27 ID:EUIlkwM0

I would love to meet more Scottish writers, but I live down in the North-East (hence have a horribly affected accent) but still. if you ever arrange a meeting on a day when I'm there I would totally go! Love meeting people who like writing!

26 Name: Anonymous : 2009-11-03 09:53 ID:IyP+jJXT

So, when should the meeting be? I don't think we should wait too long, because if we do, then many of us will likely forget about this - so I think that it should be as soon as it is possible for people to meet.

27 Name: Anonymous : 2009-11-03 10:10 ID:IyP+jJXT

My first idea for the time is the Saturday of next week (November 14) - that way, people don't have to rush to get to the meeting if they are busy for this week, but it is not so far away that people here are likely to forget about it.

28 Name: DarthRevanShepard : 2009-11-03 11:24 ID:ZGgBzQbJ

I won't be able to make it to the meeting even though I started this whole thing. My parents always tell me fanfiction is a waste of time and unfortunately won't let me join in on this -_- I hate not being able to be indipendent.

29 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-03 12:04 ID:m30LFx6Z

Isn't the 24th too soon? We need time to let others know about it and stuff... Plus have you seen the weather?

Hoshi xXx

30 Name: Anonymous : 2009-11-03 12:08 ID:trDfHplR

>>29
What about the 21st of November? - one week to let people know about it, and one week for people to "wait" for the meeting.

31 Name: RayRay : 2009-11-03 12:40 ID:EUIlkwM0

One of the reasons I love being out of control of my parents. Being over 18 has its advantages.

My parents wont ever tell me that FF is a waste of time, they know I love it and I get enjoyment out of writing. Its just an extension of my bookishness in their eyes.

Professor Flitwick (Warwick Davies) wished me happy birthday on my 19th, thanks to my friend asking if he would wish me a happy birthday, and my mum thought it was the coolest thing ever!

32 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-03 13:36 ID:m30LFx6Z

@30 That could work... I'm getting excited already! Let me get back to you tomorrow before stamping it off though!

Hoshi xXx

33 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-03 14:05 ID:m30LFx6Z

I have the go-ahead for the 28th...

So, we need numbers!

Because if there is a big number then the police need to know.

Hoshi xXx

35 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-03 14:41 ID:m30LFx6Z

@34 Yeah, if everyone is ok with that!

Hoshi xXx

36 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-03 14:51 ID:m30LFx6Z

Or we could meet up in Queen St Station then head to George Sq? It's less suspicious...

Hoshi xXx

37 Name: Anonymous : 2009-11-03 14:55 ID:zrZUaOQV

>>36
Here is Queen St Station, in case anybody doesn't know:
http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:*&q=Queen%20St%20Station%20glasgow&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl

Also, it looks like this:
http://s0.geograph.org.uk/photos/23/00/230009_728e20ec.jpg

Well, whatever works, works.

So, meeting at Queen St. Station on the 28th?

38 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-03 14:58 ID:m30LFx6Z

@37 Sounds like a plan!

You seem organized... wanna help organize this with me?

Hoshi xXx

39 Name: Anonymous : 2009-11-03 16:02 ID:IyP+jJXT

>>38
There doesn't need to be any further organization other than this... for now. There just needs to be a few people (at least four) willing to pay a visit to Queen St. Station on the 28th of November.

40 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-03 16:11 ID:0pbsrpMH

@39 ... We have a date and a place... What about recognising each other? Number of people? A phone number incase someone gets lost? I mean it's not vital for right this very second but it's worth a think

Hoshi xXx

41 Name: Anonymous : 2009-11-03 17:26 ID:IyP+jJXT

>What about recognising each other?

See:
http://www.fanbbs.net/europe/kareha.pl/1255632080/l50

>Number of people?

It is important for that number to be as high as possible...

>A phone number incase someone gets lost?

The police?

42 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-04 09:39 ID:uYGxjFEC

A_Gathering@live.co.uk Please e-mail if you are going, just so I can get rough numbers =]

Hoshi xXx

43 Name: Anonymous : 2009-11-04 09:43 ID:IyP+jJXT

Or, perhaps we can just post here and say, "I am going" so we can all keep count.

44 Name: e-j99 : 2009-11-04 13:31 ID:41ROgfC+

who's all going and when?
a post should be made by whoever the organisers are which seem to be Hoshika and anonymous.
Just saying when where and how many people can go so far.
Then after people can add to it, say they can't make it or whatever.
~e~

45 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-04 13:34 ID:uYGxjFEC

Or we could do both... it's just to keep track with them as well as people from comms that might be coming and stuffs

Buuuut whatever, I'm a tiny bit OCD when it comes to having things organized

Hoshi xXx

46 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-04 13:36 ID:uYGxjFEC

Yaaay! Hoshi likes your idea!

I'm in Linlithgow, and the local tourist board makes me obliged to offer the Palace as a meeting place XDXD Hey, maybe we can get Mary Queen of Scots hooked on manga... XDXDXD

Well i'm stuck just outside Edinburgh :) So i'm pretty far away.

56 Name: Mint : 2009-11-25 15:49 ID:5yeDX+Aw

I'm in Stirling, which is about 30-40 minutes away from Glasgow. I actually live near Ayr (I'm at university here)which is about an hour's train ride from the opposite side of Glasgow

57 Name: Hoshika : 2009-11-26 01:39 ID:Yv/ITeIO

@55 Hey, there's a meet-up on the 28th, check out the other post for info!

Hoshi xXx

58 Name: Anonymous : 2009-11-28 17:59 ID:IyP+jJXT

Could we perhaps use this thread to discuss about the possibility of a Glasgow meeting? That way, we can continue talking about multiple possibilities for meetings.

59 Name: Zaku-118 : 2009-12-02 16:56 ID:fXgOCdup

I live about halfway between Glasgow and Stirling.
I never thought there'd be so many people from Scotland, to be honest i thought i was kinnda living in the 'back of beyond'

60 Name: Squin : 2009-12-04 15:58 ID:HoJy8y2u

Hi i am in dundee anybody near me

61 Name: BP(L)AH : 2009-12-11 16:22 ID:RZHJuGjD

This is a great site. I live in Aberdeen. This Glasgow post was the closest i could find

62 Name: Dave2380 : 2009-12-17 06:14 ID:5XxObcKp

Nuts, why couldn't i have found this post before the glagow meeting? Whitburn in West Lothian here, eternally suspended between Edinburgh and Glasgow, and you thought you had it bad!

63 Name: Lauraac2110 : 2009-12-18 10:01 ID:XuHOQOfw

I live near to Glasgow and I'd certainly assure you that, whenever you want to meet, I'll be able to come. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only Scot into fanfiction.

64 Name: SandyF : 2009-12-27 16:53 ID:f0p9cSd9

I'm just outside Glasgow. Anime fanfic is my thing and I would really like to meet up with some people :) Just give me a date and I'll be there. It always surprises me how many fanfiction people there are in Scotland...where are you all hiding?

65 Name: Lauraac2110 : 2009-12-29 06:00 ID:ogZXjSVo

>>64 I'm just outside Glasgow as well. It takes me, what, less than twenty minutes to get there by bus. I'm not that strongly into anime but I'm still amazed as well that there are so many Scots spreading their creative fanfic talent through ff.net.

Perhaps, just a suggestion, we should try to get ff.net to distinguish between Scotland, England and Wales in the location section on the profile page.

When is the next date anyway?

66 Name: Anonymous : 2010-01-17 17:09 ID:IyP+jJXT

Well, perhaps we should decide on the next date right now: how about the 6th of February?

67 Name: annec : 2010-01-18 13:23 ID:Hv2DyIvP

I'm from Falkirk, that place is tiny. I never realised how many Scots were actually interested in meeting up to discuss views on writing!

68 Name: Sgt. Lemon : 2010-01-22 03:52 ID:U7Rduogo

@66: i'm thinking the 6th is probably qutie a good date! i'm in :)

@56 i'm studying in stirling too!! yaay!!

69 Name: Lauraac2110 : 2010-01-22 09:48 ID:i0XgKxXC

Unfortunately, I'm out. Too many tests on the 8th that I'm going to need to study for.

Fingers crossed that I'll be able to make the next one.

70 Name: Cliodhna : 2010-01-22 12:00 ID:853Jssv+

The sixth sounds good, I'm from Prestwick, not too far for me. Is anyone from the last attempt at a meeting going? it'd be nice to finally meet some of those guys! When and where?

71 Name: Anonymous : 2010-01-22 12:21 ID:IyP+jJXT

>>70
We need to decide on the location. Anyone know a good meeting place to meet in Glasgow?

72 Name: Zaku-118 : 2010-01-22 17:08 ID:bgtGWXBM

I live just outside Glasgow, and i'd like to tag along if possible.
If it helps whenever i meet my friends in glasgow we always meet outside the Big HMV by the Buchanan galleries and Donald Dewar's Statue.
I think it's a good meeting place, Any thoughts?

73 Name: Kiz. : 2010-01-24 14:15 ID:5GKhaZQj

Hey sorry just joined this thread, but I'm from Edinburgh and looking for a meeting near me.
Have you decided on a date/time or am I too late?

74 Name: annec : 2010-01-26 10:15 ID:Hv2DyIvP

that sounds like a good place meeting outside of the big hmv. mind you, i'd still probably get lost... 6th is good for me

75 Name: V-chan : 2010-01-28 13:22 ID:9jXea9Dg

I'd love to come to the February meeting, but I've been cursed with bad luck recently. Got problems with my knee which'll prolly need surgery :(. I could take out a wheelchair, but it would be really hard for me to get around (especially from where I'm from). Also meeting people I don't know, I'd rather be safe and be able to walk (not that I think there's any bad people here, just being cautious). Fingers crossed I'll be able to make the next meet though :).

76 Name: Anonymous : 2010-01-31 14:20 ID:IyP+jJXT

So, the meeting place is decided then?

Place: Outside the Big HMV by the Buchanan galleries and Donald Dewars's statue
Time: Saturday, the 6th of February, at 2:00PM

Any objections?

77 Name: themadmanrd : 2010-01-31 17:58 ID:Cog6Lj/W

if this goes ahead what will be happening?

78 Name: Jelly-tot : 2010-02-01 08:08 ID:11bc7Df2

i'm in... i think... but whats actually going to be happening?

79 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-01 08:41 ID:IyP+jJXT

>>77 >>78 Well, since none of us know each other yet, perhaps the first thing we could do there would be to start to get to know each other, or something.

80 Name: zero.xo. : 2010-02-01 10:14 ID:+aY0EMM5

sounds good. i'm from just outside Glasgow, so i could make it.
but, umm, how do we recognize each other? xD

81 Name: annec : 2010-02-02 04:28 ID:Hv2DyIvP

that's a good question, maybe try and wear a certain colour?

82 Name: bone8rot : 2010-02-04 12:19 ID:50Jmkp2D

>>62 Holy crap. I live in Whitburn!! :D!!! Too bad I can't go to the 6th meeting...I might be able to but I would have to give my mum a heads up at least a couple weeks back because she won't let me go to Glasgow without her :( Maybe I can show up at the next meeting? :)

83 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-05 08:27 ID:IyP+jJXT

Well, if anyone here has some blank white paper, perhaps you could try writing "FF" on it to bring to the meeting, as a sign for recognition...

84 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-06 09:22 ID:IyP+jJXT

So, did people show up...?

85 Name: Zaku-118 : 2010-02-06 10:39 ID:DF1wZ+eV

I did, but i didn't see anyone else

86 Name: Eimi.Kyoko : 2010-02-06 13:49 ID:Y7K31kra

Damn! I just found out about this website today,so i've missed the meeting ¬_¬

87 Name: zero.xo.◆xTSWgtBmh2 : 2010-02-06 14:19 ID:+aY0EMM5

well, i was late; i got there at about twenty past, but i wasn't sure if anyone was there or not, and i wasn't about to start walking up to randomers and be like, "umm, am i supposed to be meeting you?" >.<

88 Name: Eimi.Kyoko : 2010-02-06 15:13 ID:Y7K31kra

Haha,i know that'd be dead embarrasing >.<
I would have walked to the meeting area and if noone was there just slowly walked away lol!
Wouldn't have it been a better idea to take..oh i don't know,mobile numbers?
Text where the hell are you to everyone haha?

89 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-06 16:14 ID:IyP+jJXT

I guess that the problem is one of recognition - we need to agree on a way we can recognize each other...

90 Name: river_deep : 2010-02-07 19:12 ID:0pbsrpMH

hey
I just found this thread. Am from just outside glasgow. I would luv to come to a meeting. When r use having another one?x

91 Name: Zaku-118 : 2010-02-08 15:18 ID:SJeQquiZ

So is it a case of reconsidering how we're going to recognise each other and try again next saterday?

92 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-08 16:22 ID:5N8ZzJgA

>>91
That's right - so, how do we recognize each other?

93 Name: river_deep : 2010-02-08 17:08 ID:Bv8cH/qa

what you could do was decide on a colour n av everyone wear something of that colour.

94 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-08 18:15 ID:5N8ZzJgA

Well, does anyone have a blank sheet of white paper? Perhaps something could be written on that paper, and help up, as a sign of recognition.

95 Name: Sgt. Lemon : 2010-02-10 05:37 ID:CmGFD0nW

I couldn't make it :( did anyone meet up??
i'm up for trying again....

96 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-10 07:22 ID:IyP+jJXT

Perhaps on the 20th or 21st of February...? How many people would be able to go on the 20th or 21st of February?

97 Name: Zaku-118 : 2010-02-10 12:20 ID:5oIlsIMq

20th sounds fine to me,
However i think we should sort out the identification problem first.
I'd suggest we each ware something red, it's bright, easy to spot (and all my fleeces are red or black :) )

98 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-15 23:42 ID:vfhUnwM3

Before a gathering on the 20th of February, I think that it is important to revive this conversation...

99 Name: Dunabunk : 2010-02-17 18:54 ID:jt0i/2a7

I'd go but I'd need to know when and where

100 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-17 19:02 ID:IyP+jJXT

Additionally, perhaps it might be necessary to specify the time of the day: I think that 2:00PM would be best for now.
