Last year for Fedcon, some friends and I from the Torchwood4fans group on Facebook made a funny little comic to give to John at Fedcon. And since last year I want to show it to you but never got around to it. Everyone drew pictures about funny real life events he told about either on tour or in his books. Some amazing artwork out there - sadly since the group is a closed group now I can't link to the other pictures anymore. Maybe we can upload them somewhere else, stay tuned! In the meantime, here is one of my entries. I made the pictures a bit bigger this time, so you can see all the details well. I put a bit of work into creating the Cardiff house living room, with the paintings at the wall and the planes at the board and the Welsh flag pillows on the couch. If you wonder how I know what it all looks like - he shares so many pictures and videos with us where you can see it.

And guess what? He actually was the reason I bought a ticket! I never had been to Fedcon before, never wanted to as I don't know all those "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" actors they usually get, and the only "Doctor Who" or "Stargate" actor amongst 30 other people was not enough for me to justify a ticket for a four-day-convention.

But for Colin Ferguson, who played Sheriff Carter in "Eureka" for those that don't know (and is in the fourth season of "Haven" now) I thought I'd try it out this one time only.

That was in October 2012, and in March 2013 John Barrowman got announced which was a huge surprise. And while everyone else scrambled to get a ticket, I could sit back totally relaxed. It was meant to happen!

I sadly missed the Eve Myles solo panel for this photoshoot, as they had changed times and we had to wait one hour longer than announced, but it was so worth it and I did not want to leave my space in the line at all:

At the autograph table, there was a bit time to talk to him, and I told him that (at the time last May) we still had not seen the last five episodes of the last season in German TV. But he showed that he was well informed and knew that it would start the week after the con.

I just realized that there are still Fedcon pictures I haven't posted yet, so here is me doing Jazz hands with John. I got the usual hug picture also but then I asked for a fun one and this is what he came up with. And after this was the one where he asked me to jump on his back: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/62887.html

... and so I jumped ;) This will happen when you ask for a fun picture with John Barrowman. Maybe I should be glad he did not jump onto me (like he did with a friend) or threw me around and held me head upside down (as he did with another friend)

And since he already was at the ground, John stayed kneeling and we all got a handful of Barrowbum. Well, not all, it was too small for all our hands, so I grabbed his hip instead. But I already had my chance back in Peterborough and I'm sure there will be more opportunities:

People have started voting for their favourite picture, and I wonder how this one will fit in, then. Because it is my favourite. I might be a little bit biased, as it was my idea ;) After the fourth John seemed to run out of ideas as well, and suddenly I heard myself say: "You could lie down!" Which he immediately did and then said: "Grab onto me, girls!" So we did:

And then the silliness started. This was also John's idea, he told me to kneel in the front, I had no idea what they were up to behind me until I saw the finished print:

So, after the first picture, which I posted yesterday , we stood around a bit aimless, no idea what to do next. But at Photoshoots it all has to go quick, quick, quick. So John took it into his hands and started to arrange us for the next couple of pictures. And each became more crazy than the previous. A friend says this one looks like the promo-shot for a new TV series:

Edit: This report now also exists with pictures of Iris here at ProjectTorchwood: http://projecttorchwood.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/expos-cons-fedcon-report-by-antje.html

Colin Ferguson and Matt Frewer from “Eureka” were on before John Barrowman and Eve Myles did the “Torchwood” panel, which was the final panel at Sunday. He went out with both chairs him and Matt had sat on. Then he came back in, still carrying them and announced: "John Barrowman wants to sit down". We all laughed.

First they showed the video "Single ladies" and three Barrowmans dancing to it. One Barrowman is not enough. I still have an earworm from that song. Then Eve and John came out, dancing to the music which introduced them (“Dankeschoen”). First alone, then John started to swirl Eve around, at one time her feet weren't touching the ground anymore.

John showed his German skills with "Oh mein Gott!" They sat down and Eve told everyone: "Six years I work with this man - he has the hangover from hell." And she wanted us all to scream like mad. We did not need much encouragement. We screamed his headaches away, even twice ;) John also greeted us with "Gut'n Abend" and then said that it actually was "Guten Morgen" for him. Later in the panel they showed a picture of Captain Jack in that episode where he is laying drunk in the street with the broken bottle stuck in his stomach with the words "Game Over". John laughed and admitted that this is what he looked like last night. I think he went home at 6 AM or something. He asked who of the fans had been still with him at the time.

The first question was about John's concert tour and if he couldn't expand a bit to other countries than the UK. He said that he would love to but it's up to the booking agents/promoters. They don't know him from sci-fi shows, they don't know his musical work or CDs or TV shows. They think he won't fill the places up. All it takes is 500 people then they would accept it. So he encouraged us to write to them and tell them we want to see him. He tried it last year at his page with people voting for cities in the US but nobody wrote.

Well, let's do it then! Eve asked if someone has a big backyard and then John also said that the location we were in right now would actually be perfect for it. Maybe Dirk can expand his work :)

John announced the next questioner singing... )

So, there is a group of six people who had a special surprise for John: A little comic with funny scenes from his life, all those stories he likes to tell. You can see it in his hand in this picture, I'll also show you what I did for it and the complete work once it's uploaded to the net.

Since we were six people, we got six different poses for our group picture. Here is the first one, were we are still very behaved. Of course, being with John, it did not last for long...
