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

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....
xxx

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.

101 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-17 21:31 ID:IyP+jJXT

So, here is what the proposed time and place would be:

Place: Outside the Big HMV by the Buchanan galleries and Donald Dewars's statue
Time: Saturday, the 20th of February, at 2:00PM

102 Name: Zaku-118 : 2010-02-18 07:15 ID:c4K9e/8N

We still have to work on a way to identify each other.

I've got a very distinctive red hoodie i got on holiday, It's got Austria writen on it in big white letters. It's easy to spot and less conspicuous than carrying around a piece of paper.

Anyone else got any sort of distinctive clothing they could ware to help us identify each other?

103 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-20 10:40 ID:IyP+jJXT

I guess that due to lack of organization, were unable to have a gathering in Glasgow today...

I think that we can try again, in 2 weeks, on the 6th or 7th of March, but we definitely need to be more organized for this.

104 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-21 20:20 ID:IyP+jJXT

Hmmm... I guess that it was not a total failure after all? Well, hopefully, the next one will have more attendees - shall it be on the 6th of March?

105 Name: Dunabunk : 2010-02-23 14:31 ID:jt0i/2a7

The sixth of march is a good date. Maybe we just need a way of recognising each other.
I have a tan coloured duffel coat that I will wear. Anyone else with distinctive clothing or should we just have a sign saying FF Meeting?

Is 2o'clock still a good time for everyone?

106 Name: Zaku-118 : 2010-03-08 15:56 ID:5eHTVUv3

So did anybody meet up?
I'm afraid i couldn't make it, my mum wasn't feeling well :(

107 Name: Anonymous : 2010-03-08 22:46 ID:kjd33lS5

>>106
Well, since nobody said anything, I guess not.

I think that it is a matter of finding a date that will be suitable for enough people, although that will be difficult, of course.

108 Name: HoldenCaulfield : 2010-03-11 17:40 ID:JcC0AvCk

Hey.
Stumbled upon this as I scrolled too far down past the London meet up thread.

Just a quick suggestion, someone in this thread should start a blog - blogspot is a good place to do so - and set a date, time and place, that way there will be no confusion and anyone who wants to meet will have all the information and it eliminates the need to search the thread for information.

It's work well for us, we've had regular meetings for about 4 - 5 months now.

109 Name: Nikki : 2010-03-12 14:02 ID:PlAIK6f0

I like fanfiction and live atleast 2 and a half hours outside of Glasgow by bus.

110 Name: swiftswallow : 2010-03-13 14:55 ID:Ld8VXdtp

Are any of these meetings still taking place?

111 Name: Anonymous : 2010-03-14 09:42 ID:IyP+jJXT

>>110
As soon as enough people agree on a date to meet, they will take place...

When do you people think the next meeting should be?

112 Name: swiftswallow : 2010-03-16 10:26 ID:Ld8VXdtp

Well it's exam season where I am so a bit later on once there finished would be nice.

113 Name: Sarah Paradox : 2010-03-21 13:19 ID:fPLFThXf

Hey, i live near Glasgow and would love to meet up with some other fanfic lovers......

But i can't do anything until summer and my exams are over :(

114 Name: Laura : 2010-03-28 19:01 ID:DqprGk2p

Hey just stumbled on this and gutted that I missed the meetings, I live just outside Glasgow in a tiny village and I would like to talk to ppl bout my work and their work. Has a date been set for April?

115 Name: swiftswallow : 2010-03-29 08:23 ID:ZQDvIPhE

Not that I know off

116 Name: Katie : 2010-03-30 13:41 ID:VK3+1HMZ

Any One Here Live Near The Irvine Valley?

117 Name: Laura : 2010-04-02 05:29 ID:GQ7r1OP8

Should one be set up?

118 Name: Anonymous : 2010-04-02 06:56 ID:PCyz5wZq

>>117
Why not? But, of course, we have to agree on a date that will work for all of us.

119 Name: Fanille : 2010-04-14 20:12 ID:/GJsLKxy

I'm from Stirling, but I can easily make it into Glasgow. This still running?

120 Name: Anonymous : 2010-04-14 20:32 ID:Q3dJn7/I

>>119
Yes, it is. However, we have to agree on a date to meet again, and a time as well.

121 Name: Anonymous : 2010-04-18 11:50 ID:D/sp2XzA

Just read through this whole thread and it's just full of failed meetings heh.

So as not to cause any more confusion and making some people waste their time coming out when no one's sure what's happening why doesn't some take up HoldenCaulfield's suggestion and create a blog. Or maybe even a twitter or something where you can get notified of replies by email and, like they said, there will be no more confusion and having to check this thread for dates.

It just makes more sense ...

I'll be really interested in it but I don't fancy showing up if no-one else is going to be there, yeah?

122 Name: Dave2380 : 2010-07-05 12:30 ID:vrw5rv4Z

Omg 82, a fellow ficcer in whitburn, awesome, so what do you fic and where do you host them? I'm on ff.net myself

123 Name: Shattered Glass : 2010-08-29 09:26 ID:Q6NsUQB6

Um... Hi. I helped set up the original London meetings (cafe Nero, awesome!) and if people from Edinburgh are still interested then I can do those too. I'm the one happy to ask strangers if I'm supposed to be meeting them or not, you see. It took a while to fix in London but I think Edinburgh would be simpler.

Yes, I know it's months since anybody posted on this thread, but I just thought I'd check.

124 Name: swiftswallow : 2010-09-15 12:42 ID:e3p0sHb5

>>123 Thank you so much for offering and I know I don't speak for everyone here but I would love you so much if you did that.
Although, Edinburgh would be too far for me a start is start. Thank you so much.^^

125 Name: Zaku-118 : 2010-10-02 13:44 ID:hJff7OdY

I realise this threads pretty much dead, and didn't really acomplish anything whilst it was alive, but i'm curious
Are there any other Fanfic writers at Glasgow Caledonian, or am i the only one?
