Akicon, the for-profit con of bootleg merchandise fraud, bilking and abusing their artist’s alley, and booking guests with a sexual harassment history and covering for their assaults. Akicon Management has hired Leslie Burt Shotwell (DJ Victor Malice) a felon convicted of: Sexual Assault of a minor, drugging, and rape. (HERE) He has been hired by management since 2011-2013. By doing so, they have endangered countless convention attendee’s. This year Akicon management ignored warnings from countless convention go-ers about Shotwell being a felon with rape charges, and led to another convention attendee getting drugged and raped by Shotwell. When she reported the assault to Akicon Management, they called her a liar and defended Shotwell. Later Management tried to cover their tracks by stating: “We can’t help what happens in private hotel rooms.”. Akicon needs to realize what they do every year is wrong, and we will not stand for it. Get Akicon shut down for good.

Please, even if youre not a WA state resident, signal boost this for me. This con needs to be shut down before more people are hurt.
there are so many other awful things about this con that are not listed here, the only reason i went in 2012 was because of friends. it’s a horribly managed and dangerous convention. people should be aware as to whether they’re in danger or not, and aki-con staff should take responsibility for their actions.
Hey guys this is one of my local cons and it has a shit ton of problems — since I’m overseas right now I haven’t heard about most of this until right now. But this con is sketchy as hell, and this is absolutely stunning.
I somehow wasn’t aware of any of this! Holy hell. Will not ever attend.
eey! Can I ask you an rp question? I'm about halfway through reading your guys' backlog (it's hella cute). I'm curious how often you plan out plot changes ahead of time as a group, vs. how often you throw improvised plot curveballs at each other? It's reminding me a lot of improv. acting.
Eee thank you <3 And yeah sure! :D Most of the time we end up all in the same room making posts at each other and then asking questions and stuff between them, so I guess a lot of it is kinda by the seat of our pants, yeah. X) Sometimes there’s plot noodling too, or one of us will go “oh hey what if THIS happened” and then we’ll run with that.
Most days, I try to catch up with my tumblr dash. I usually make it through, but at the expense of really being able to wallow in all the cool stuff I see. There’s stories and art and beautiful things and ideas and arrrgh I wish that the world would just hold up for a bit to give me some time. The fact that there’s way too much stuff in the world for my brain to eat and digest and contribute to is both a terrible travesty and really damn cool.
can I quit my day jobs and be a full-time artistauthorgamerreraderanthropologistanimation-o-phile full time please?
