Dragon Bites on the Walk of Fame

By

The Daily Dragon staff misses everyone already, and so we wanted to leave you with a little something to nibble on until next year. This reporter stalked the Walk of Fame on Monday to ask many of the guests about their experiences at Dragon Con 2015 and the craziest/weirdest/favorite thing they saw over the weekend. Aaron Abrams: “It’s been great to interact with fans in a way that Scott [Thompson] and I rarely get a chance to do. Hannibal fans

“The Donner Question” Day Three: Spock versus Picard

By

Welcome to today’s almost-all-celebrity edition of “The Donner Question,” known colloquially as “Who would you eat?” Today’s focus is Spock and Picard, but before we get there, let’s revisit Jon Snow versus Tyrion Lannister. To the girl I panned yesterday for not knowing who Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister are, I apologize. Turns out, you are in good company. Sandra Hess, Tricia Heifer, James Callis, Mat Fraser, James Urbaniak, and Greg Byrk are just as clueless. Byrk accused me of

Shuttling Around Dragon Con (Green Route)

By

Shuttling around Dragon Con in a comfortable bus (on the green route) is the coolest way to get around the con if you don’t have a handy teleporter. But if you’re at the Hyatt and you want to make a panel at the Sheraton on time for panelists’ introductions, knowing your ETA (estimated time of arrival) is essential. I walked out the front doors of the Hyatt at approximately 4PM (late for my panel at the Sheraton) and strolled (aided

“The Donner Question” Day Two: Lord Varys versus Littlefinger

By

Today’s version of this highly unscientific and morbidly gross poll was a tie! People would eat Littlefinger and Lord Varys in equal measure (don’t worry I also continued the Jon Snow/Tyrion Lannister pairing, and Jon is making a late-game surge in the race for survival). Lee from Alabama would eat Lord Varys because he believes “if you have Littlefinger on your side, you’ll win.” This pretty much sums up the dilemma with the coupling: which wily strategist would be more

Cosplayers Strip Down for Annual Underwear Party

By

While the thought of being in a crowded room in your underwear is some people’s nightmare, for a few hundred Dragon Con partygoers, it’s an annual tradition. The annual Dragon Con Superhero Underwear Party was Thursday night at the Marriott, and it’s exactly what it sounds like: a party where the revelers deck out in their skimpiest superhero duds to kick off the con. Tony Ray, one of the organizers of the event, says it started organically a few years

“The Donner Question” Day One: Jon Snow versus Tyrion Lannister

By

I spent a good portion of my day asking Dragon Con attendees and guests a question near and dear to my heart. “Imagine you are a member of the Donner Party—the group of pioneers in the 1800s that became snowbound in the Rocky Mountains and resorted to cannibalism to survive: who would you kill and eat first, Jon Snow or Tyrion Lannister (from HBO’s megahit Game of Thrones)?” Nine out of 10 people would eat Jon Snow. It doesn’t seem

Eugie Foster: In Memoriam

Eugie Foster: In Memoriam

By

On behalf of the DC2KWriters One should sorrow, but not sink under sorrow’s oppression. —Eugie Foster, “Mortal Clay, Stone Heart” (2010) On September 27, 2014, we lost Eugie Foster, editor of the Daily Dragon, to the frailty of what she often called her “human suit.” Her spirit lives on in her enduring body of work, including nominated and award-winning fiction. Her stories and much more are described on her website, now maintained by her devoted husband, Matthew. Eugie shunned praise

Give Them Dragon Con and They Will Come

By

Dragon Con. There is no other Con quite like it. Every year, thousands descend on Atlanta, GA, for a fun, activity-packed, nothing-like-you-have-ever-experienced-before, time-of-your-life opportunity. It is not for the weak of heart. You have made the decision to go. Your cosplay costume is ready. Your pocket program is carefully marked with all of the panels you want to attend. You are ready.
