SAHCon 2019 is now over!
After an amazing Saturday, we reached over 1,880 active participants! We would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to this convention’s fun day for fans through kindness, art, conversation, community, and laughs! We’d also like to thank our Panelists and Guest Panelists for providing the engaging streams of the convention, Artists for providing colorful booths to share their crafts, and our Moderators and Staff for putting in the upmost efforts and organization into making this a successful event. We couldn’t have done this without all of you.
29 of our 37 panels have have now been archived! You can now go to the Schedule Page and click on panel titles to view their streams from the con, in case you missed any of them!
Finally, we also have a SAHCON BADGE! For any of you who want some sort of memorabilia to show your support of this con, we’ve provided a print-your-own badge! Get it laminated, simply hang it on your wall, whatever! Full image size can be found here!
Until next year!
The actual convention starts tomorrow, but we’re allowing attendees to have access to the Discord hub 7 hours in advance for easy prep. Get ready!
Aysha U. Farah is a barista by day and a writer and game dev by night, with a philosophy degree that she mostly uses to dunk on Dirk Strider on twitter dot com.
She wrote a lot of friends in Hiveswap Friendsim, and is currently working on Hiveswap Act 2, as well as some non-homestuck adjacent media, including Event Horizon LARPS and the podcast “The Strange Cade of Starship Iris”.
Lalo Hunt, known as a writer for both the Hiveswap Friendsim and the Homestuck Epilogues, will be joining us as a guest at SAHCon! Not only was Lalo the mind behind some of our favorite Friendsim trolls—Tagora, Tyzias, Galekh, and Wanshi—but they also worked with Aysha U. Farah to bring us the Friendsim Epilogue. Speaking of “epilogue,” Lalo had a hand in the Homestuck Epilogues by penning (no spoilers!) a well-known scene examining gender and self-exploration.
During SAHCon, Lalo will be holding a text-based “Ask Me Anything” session, so get your questions ready for one of Homestuck’s beloved writers!
