Just like in 2013, 2014 and 2015, this year there are introductory posts for Eroticon too. I love these posts and read all of them but I tend to forget half of what I have read. I also don’t expect anyone to remember everything I tell you below.
This year I have mixed feelings about Eroticon. I have seen the tweet that this might be the last Eroticon ever, but definitely the last one Ruby will be involved with. I have a feeling that someone will be taking it over and I know who I would like to take it over, because I think she will be perfect for it. Something that always makes me happy about this conference, is seeing old friends again. Even though we are always full of plans to go to England more frequently, life keeps us pretty busy over here, which means we don’t make those trips we really want to make. This means that we see old friends at Eroticon and we also make new ones.
So let me introduce Master T and me…
Name (and Twitter name if you have one)
Master T: his Eroticon badge will say VDS, but he listens to the name Master T or T. His Twitter handle is @TheGrandMasterT
Me: Marie Rebelle. I listen to the name Marie or Rebel. My Twitter handle is @RebelsNotes
If you had the opportunity to rename yourself (or your blog) what would you pick?
Master T is not into renaming himself. He is happy with the name he has chosen and prefers to keep it that way.
As for me, I have given this a long, hard think, but I don’t think I want another name. Rebel has been an online name for me for so long and suits me so well, that I find myself constantly thinking of something that involves the name ‘Rebel’. And since in a roundabout way the first name ‘Marie’ fits my real name so very well, the name Marie Rebelle fits me just fine.
What are you most looking forward to at Eroticon Live and/or is there anything you are nervous about?
Most of all I am looking forward to spending time with so many people! At first I didn’t want to mention any names, because I’m afraid I might forget someone, but I’m going to do it anyway and I can always add people later, that I am forgetting about now while writing this! I look forward to seeing Honey and her man (I do hope we are neighbours again!), Molly & Michael, Remittance Girl, F Dot Leonora, Charlie Powell, Lady Celine, Stella, Gryphon, Anna Sky, Jilly Boyd (ik breng hagelslag mee!) and the lovely people of KinkCraft. I also look forward to finally meeting Exposing 40, Hy, Livvy and Laurie North. Another thing that I am very excited about is that three of my favorite Dutch writers – Liza Daen, Mahotsukai and Luckyman – will also attend Eroticon. It’s going to be a fabulous weekend!
Normally I am nervous when I have to go to places where there are lots of people, but I surprised myself when I wasn’t nervous at all last year. And I don’t think I will be nervous this year either!
Have you planned which sessions you will be attending or are you more of a spur of the moment kind of person?
I have looked at the schedule and this year I find it incredibly difficult to choose which sessions I want to go to. Last year, Eroticon was brilliant. The sessions were great and all more or less followed a central theme. Somehow I miss the central theme for this year’s Eroticon, but that doesn’t mean the sessions planned are not good. There are some session slots I am still undecided about, but we (Master T tags along to every session) will definitely be going to the sessions of Kerry Stott, Charlie Powell and Hyacinth Jones.
What essential items to your life will be bringing with you to Eroticon Live? (you can have a maximum of 5)
- Smokes – ‘because I can’
- Credit cards – ‘because I have to pay for everything’
- Phone – ‘contact with the homefront’
- Camera – ‘for the f***ing brigde’ (he’s not leaving Bristol this year if he hasn’t been at the bridge!)
- Rebel – ‘because I don’t want to go anywhere without her’
- Phone – because contact with everyone!
- Laptop – because I still have to work some when in Bristol… something to do with a 365 project and Wicked Wednesday
- Camera – because I want to make pics at the Clifton suspension bridge and around beautiful Bristol
- Books – because of course I am going to try and sell some copies of my books, and I will sign then with a personal message if you want it
- Master T – because I love to be at his side always.
Silly, but fun fact:
Master T had already told me his list when I told him what I had on my list.
Him: You put me on the fifth place?
Me (laughing out loud): Well you did the same with me!
And of course this was cause for some mutual laughter!
A new cocktail has been made on your honour, what would be the key ingredient and what would it be called?
Coming up with these had us laughing again!
Key ingredient: whiskey
Name: Islay Whip
Key ingredient: Captain Morgan
Name: Colt Rebel
And finally… Complete the sentence: I have yet to…
I have yet to… buy a Patek!
(I am going to leave it to you to search what this is!)
I have yet to… become a best-selling author.
(If this happens, Master T can have his Patek!)
