Pan writes: "Alright, dammit. I saw no reason to submit, since a blurry picture of me is on the C6 website, but everyone keeps giving me a hard time, so : a blurry picture on the roll call site it is! I'm one of the C6 organizers and I'll be the guy glaring at you, remembering that question that you asked. ;p Yes, those *are* blue jeans. Yes, that is a demon familiar to my left. Any comments about the former will anger the latter. I'll be asleep in my room in the official hotel during C6, collapsed from exhaustion! Mac's my 'ho." Email him.
Jilli writes: "I'm a harried (but not as harried as Pan Satyricon!) C6 committee member. I've been on a.g.f for years and years. I'll be the Victorian-looking one wearing a top hat and Poofy Skirts, hanging around with Shechemist." Email her.
Gray now lives in Seattle (after 27 years in Indiana, and enough time in New Orleans to attend C5 as a local), where he is a software engineer and spends his free time being a database weenie for C6. The Sunday of C6 is his 30th birthday, buy him a Black Orchid. Email him.
Vomvamuse writes: "I admit it! I was the one who called and told the revervationist that i would be 'Paaaar-te-ing it up ALL NIGHT LONG'. I just didn't tell them it was in our Apartment that we would be doing it, heh heh. We are most likely the closest to the festivities being 4 blocks away. (you people on the south side of the Crowne, NO PEEKING!) I am a one of the C6 Commitee being in charge of logistics. Any hotel complaints will get a "I am very sorry to hear that....go to hell... now buy me a drink" reponse. This is of course my East coast coming out (along with big old hair) being that i am from the pretty part of new jersey. And no, niether Rachel (also c6'er) nor I, both being amazons, will NOT beat you up...even if you ask nicely. Really, I am uber excited that you are all coming to experince our fantastic city. My only hope is that we deliver you a memoriable event!" Email her.
Obscurite / Red deLeon writes: "This will be my first convergence, and I'm looking forward to meeting others that I've only talked to online. Being only 16 (convergance ends just a few days before my birthday [hint hint buy me stuff]) I don't get the chance to meet as many new people as I'd like to. I'm kind of shy, but I love to make new friends, and can chat up a storm on almost any topic. Just because I wont know most of the people, doesn't meet I wont by the end of the weekend. In fact, I'm rather proud to have C6 in our Emerald City."
Fang writes: "I'm Fang. I live in Seattle. I read alt.gothic when I'm trying to fill my wasted-time quota for the week. I subscribe to the Seattle.Gothic mailing list, and I sometimes actually read it. Until recently I was System Administrator for the MSN Service Operations Center. It was a cover. I'm really a Linux freak and now work as a Systems Analyst for Go2Net. IRL, you can't find me anywhere, because I don't have time for anything except my computers, wife, and daughter. This Convergence will be my first, and as it will also be my only sanctioned break from amassing knowledge and money for the year, I will probably be in a good mood and completely insane."
Josie (Luna) & Justin (Don Quixote), the Convergence 6 webmistress and her live-in love. :) Josie writes: "I'm currently employed as a web developer by Paul Allen's internet biz, Go2Net. I've been a lurker on a.g since 1998, and can usually be found posting makeup and clothing crap on a.g.f (as Luna Sidhe). During dull moments at work, I contribute much more often to the Seattle.Gothic mailing list.

Justin is in charge of desserts at a fabulous local restaurant, the Pink Door. When you guys come into town, I'd recommend going there at least once -- it's in a great location, too! Smack in the middle of the Pike Place Market. </shameless plug>"

Morgue and Damon, collectively known as the darkers, work and school in the Seattle area. Morgue studies apparel design and Damon practices graphic design for one of the largest firms in the northwest In their spare time, they explore ancient archeological sites around the world, make music, clothing, art and love. They were recently married in symbolic silence, sanctioned by the very spirits whose gravesite was their altar.
Trish, a dear little thing from the greater Seattle area, has been lurking on alt.gothic and the Sea-Goth list for a year or so. Though she's quite sure that no one will have a clue who she is, she looks forward to seeing the faces that fit the names.
Donya is fresh meat in the Seattle area and might actually still be living there by the time C6 arrives. She's a long time a.g.'er but can only occasionally (once or twice a month) be found lurking there under the name of Masque. She wastes most of her time at Real Networks where she claims to be employed, and spends the rest of it playing with her kittens who are slowly taking the place of people in her life.
When Jyri isn't trying to avoid all the rain that Seattle seems to dump on itself, he is busy playing electric violin in a local Seattle Goth band (Tri-State Killing Spree)
Greg and Sabrina are antique dealers located in Tacoma, WA. Greg is a sometime comedy writer and a master of talking about himself in the third person. He also claims to have a "black belt in Kama Sutra." Go figure. Sabrina is a former guitar player from "Heart of Darkness" (a popular now-defunct goth band from Portland). She is also a full-time "hot chick."
My name is Jason Wallach (a.k.a. The Unquiet Void) and just to let you know I live just outside Seattle these days and might just be spotted lurking about the Seattle streets during Convergence. I do look forward to meeting new people. I also hope to get in to see Attrition. My wife, daughter and I recently moved here from Southern Florida.

Vicula hangs out at mercury and flocks to wherever 80s music is playing. She has been known to go to the Culture Club and brave the white shirted jean wearing masses, just to be able to stand by a Boy George Mural and hear Duran Duran. Vicula is a sea-goth listee, lives in the Emerald City, and will be scoping the Convergence events, looking for new, fun people to talk to. She enjoys Glam, New Wave, and Brit pop Music (Suede being her fave). She will be running around with a camera, taking pictures of the lovely people visiting our city, and would like to about a Purple Rain or Velvet Goldmine viewing party?! She'll be the one dancing like Molly Ringwald when JQ & Brishan break out 80s music at the Mercury. Email her at, and go to her site
We are Asia and Joey, and we live in Seattle. We are looking forward to meeting everyone! Joey is in the military, and Asia is a Fetish model. This will be our first Convergence, but hopefully not our last! Were not shy, so come on up and say hello!
Elexa aka Aggrogrrl writes: "I shall be dragging my girlfriend Sidhe, and a few of the others in the Spookaloo gothic/industrial scene, where we make up the table of Darkness at the local hangout (like there are any good ones in Spokane) with me. I am a web designer. I've lived all over the US, Seattle, Los Angeles, Dallas, San Francisco, Bloomington IN just to name a few. I'm a native of Seattle though."

Ryan writes: "I've never been to a Convergence before, so I'm not quite sure what to expect... In fact, I'm scared..terrified even... somebody hold me... *whimpers*..oh, uh.. sorry. Seriously, though, I live in the gawd awful city of Spokane. I'm your basic perkygoff / musician / artist / photographer / big weirdo type, I guess. I also do website work and drink a lot. And I hate this pic of me. Anywho, if you wanna know more, I guess you'll hafta email me." *nods*
Athena writes: "hiya, this will be my first Convergence. I don't really participate in any email lists or boards, but ppl may recognize my sites: Freak (my main site) Seattle's Children of the Night and my unofficial Faith & Disease page. Although I spend most of my time in Olympia, I can also be found bouncing around the Vogue or Mercury in Seattle. I'm excited about the fact that Seattle is going to be overrun with goths and you will probably be able to spot me (I'll be the one in the white belt, lol) running around with my friend Stefany (she will be the one yelling, "I'm not goth!") and blinding everyone with my spooky little Nickelodean camera."
Carla Holley writes: "I'm employed as a web developer, working for the City of Seattle for the past *gasp* 14 years. I am a mommygoth, have 3 kids. You can find my occasional erudite post on the seattle-gothic mailing list, and also a bunch of my dumb posts.

Ded` and Lucid~ aka Michelle and Michael write: "We just recently married last summer and moved to the west coast from Tulsa, Oklahoma (which isn't as bad as it least there a legal adult may attend a concert any time they damn well please) When I'm not bitching and moaning about Washington's liquor/club laws, I work on my electrical engineering degree at Olympic College. Michael works in an underwater tin can .. based in Naval Submarine Station Bangor, WA on the USS Henry M. Jackson. In our spare time, we enjoy sitting at home watching digimon and occasionally torturing our roommates. Upon the rare event, when we actually have money, we drive down to Portland and get our club fix at the Paris Theatre. We generally don't go across the sound to Seattle, since all the clubs are 21+ and Michael(being of legal drinking age) has no one to go with (I still have 1 yr 4 months to go). We look forward to meeting more people from Seattle (and to seeing old friends as well)." (E-mail them.)

I claim to work for, but mostly i just hang out online and whine about work a lot. I try to spend time hanging out at the Mercury, but I'm usually too busy with work and stuff. There is far more info available in my website than anyone would want; but it's kind of a mess right now since i'm in the process of revamping everything. The picture is of me and my finace, Deadrose; who will also be attending. (The orange bits in my ears are earplugs)." (E-mail him.)

[ .--- --- .... -. / -... --- .-- . -. ] writes: "I spend my days hiding in the darkness, away from the eyes of mortal men. My nights are spent namedropping at local clubs, pretending I'm in an industrial band just to pick up hot goth chicks. I'm allergic to sunlight and garlic, I only wear pirate shirts, and I bathe in the blood of my fresh kills. In my spare time I enjoy stalking the members of Attrition, sinking cruise ships, getting my Crow outfit ready for the costume contest, planning the death of Voltaire, having my way with the body of Edward Gorey, and taking long walks on the beach with that special someone.

Joy swears it just yesterday when she logged on and found the folks had chased the darkwavers off into a corner called alt.gothic, and marvels that five prior Convergences snuck by before she got around to attending one. When she's not wrestling her cat Xiombarg for the keyboard, she is usually found lurking about (or is that larking?) on one or more of the Seattle mailing lists. She likes conversation but often doesn't know what to say, so don't mind the awkward silences. E-mail her.
