Psyche writes: "Greetings everyone! I am pretty much a partygoth (ooh! new word!) currently living in Washington DC and working as an online journalist. This will be my second Convergence as well as my second trip to Seattle, where the weather is far more favorable to velvet-wearing than New Orleans. I'm sticking around the city for a couple more days since it was such hell to go right back to gray-suit-land after C5! If you're a local, find me and we'll hang. :)"

james writes: "hello! i am a boston netgoth (originally from chicago (circa 1990)). even though i attended portions of the boston convergence, i consider this my first "official" convergence in that going to work is not an option. it is also my first time in seattle. i hope to meet new people and folks i know only by an email address (or by jpg's ;) ), so if you see me, grab me and say hello...but don't ask me to summon demonic water buffaloes, because i don't do that anymore."

Brian writes: "I decided to travel to Convergence five and totally celebrate my ass. This is my third convergence, and I decided this time I will make my ass happy. I'm traveling with some other girls from NJ (that claim NYC) and staying in a Secret Garden that only sailors can find the key to. I like Germans, folding chairs, hot pants, and long walks on the beach. I hate dirt, religous zealots, and cookies that pass themselves off as gastronomic delights. I'll have a boa or something on I'm sure.. oh yes.. I'm all about the Diva Posse. I am the Captain of the Pinafore, and a right good captain, too! I'm very, very good, And be it understood, I command a right good crew." (Email Brian)
Alda F. Xavier, aka. Madame X, writes: "I work and play in Manhattan, live in New Jersey and was born in sunny Algarve, Portugal. I'm 30 something (I stopped counting). No pets - I guess rocks don't count (I have a geology degree). I am the founder of an arts organization called 'The Rift.' I sponsor & host poetry readings, gallery openings and all sorts of arts/cultural events in NY & NJ. Including the New Jersey Goth Challenge 2000, where we selected a Master & Mistress of the NJ Goth Community. It was lots of fun. What else? I love to travel - in the past 2 years I've been to Paris, London, Sao Paulo, Caracas, Montreal, New Orleans, Atlanta.... In Atlanta I attended GothCon and was the mediator of the literary symposium with Voltaire and Nancy Collins. I also write poetry (in 4 languages - Portuguese, Spanish, French & English). This is my first trip to the West Coast. It is also my first time at a Convergence gathering. I'm traveling down by myself, but hope to run into lots of people that I know. I'm very excited and can't wait to meet everyone! E-mail me."

Sacred or ribbons72 (Carrin) writes: "Let's see . . . I've been in New York for over a year and a half, but currently I'm in the process of moving back to Texas, so, technically, I'll be travelling from Texas, but I'm kind of un-technically a New Yorker. *grin* This is my 2nd Convergence, my once a year chance to de-lurk and meet some .net goth personalities! (I hope to meet more this year, than I did last year.) I'm into too much stuff to list, love to dance and DJ, blah blah . . . I'm an artist by nature (currently working on altar art) and adore surrounding myself with other artists. Find me at C6 and ask me about the LYCHEE!" (E-mail her.)

I've been running a goth night in NYC called Byzantium, but I'm probably also well known for running, nycgoth, NYCgoth-L (the longest running regional gothlist), and for some writings on magic and astrology. I'll be staying at the official hotel with friends, and am looking forward to getting roaring drunk with every goddamn last one of you." Email him.
