Today, the wonderful Riley Rose is here to share a story. Also, Riley is giving away 1 ecopy of LAIA RIOS: SEX RAIDER – The Lust Idol. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Riley.

Comic Con Kindness

Besides writing humorous geeky erotica, I attend a lot of comic conventions where I perform comedy shows and moderate celebrity panels. Attending these events are a ton of fun and the highlight of my year.

A few years ago, I was at a convention moderating a Wynonna Earp cast panel. If you haven’t checked out the show, I highly recommend giving it a watch: it recently wrapped up its fourth and final season. It’s also great for you lesfic fans because of the awesome WayHaught relationship.

Melanie Scrofano, who played Wynonna Earp in the show, was sitting next to me on the panel. She was a pure delight: kind, friendly, empathetic, and devoted to her fans. Many times, celebrities don’t acknowledge the job of the moderator. Most people think moderating is easy and anyone can do it. But from performing that function many times, I know it’s a skill you develop. And good moderators can absolutely be the difference between a mediocre and great panel.

Melanie is not like most celebrities. The first thing she said after the panel was that she thought I had done a great job. That was very gratifying to hear. Moderating is a skill I’ve worked hard to develop. I asked if she might pass that on to the con organizers, telling her how appreciative I would be if she did. Celebrities are super-busy at cons, and it would have been very understandable if she forgot. But later that day she sent a tweet tagging the convention, telling them how awesome she thought I was and recommending they keep using me. She didn’t have to do that. But she took time out to show kindness. And that was pretty freakin’ cool.

Before I get to the next brief act of kindness, a quick shout-out to the entire Wynonna Earp cast, who were all the most down-to-earth and fan appreciative actors I have ever seen.

That same panel delivered another dose of geeky kindness. A fan attending the event sent out a few tweets afterward including what she most loved about it. One of those tweets was about how much she enjoyed the panel because of the energetic and friendly way I moderated. Again, most attendees don’t really care about the moderator. And that’s understandable. They come for the actors they love. My job is to help them have a great experience with those actors. So the fact this attendee took the time to mention me really made my day, heck, my whole con.

I guess the moral is that kind words can have a huge positive impact on people: whether they be your family, friends, or total strangers. So say something nice to someone today 🙂 Thanks so much for reading! I Heart Lesfic readers are the best!
