Here's the thing. Gytha rounded on us -- on me, drplokta, frostfox, and miramon at Novacon that time -- 1988? 1989? -- and said 'you should run the filkcon'. And we did. That was the start of the partnership that has led to the 1995 Eastercon, 35 and some issues of a fanzine, three plokta.cons and the Interaction fan lounge. And these amazingly enduring and precious friendships.
