Read about what House Diamond will have to offer at Pandoracon in November. And don’t forget to enter for your chance to win a free weekend badge to the event!
Midwest BSFA: What do you feel your House offers attendees who may not have been to Pandoracon before?
The House of Diamonds will have members of Midwest BSFA as well as Cincinnati’s coolest airship – Her Royal Airship Ashanti! Both organizations pride themselves on supporting multiculturalism so like its beautiful namesake gem, the House of Diamonds accepts all shapes and sizes and colors. Newbies can definitely come to any Midwest BSFA or HRA Ashanti member of the House of Diamonds for help navigating the con as well as companionship (Doctor Who-ish companionship…not Firefly-ish companionship).
Midwest BSFA: What three words do you feel best represent your House?
Clarity, strength and wisdom.
Midwest BSFA: As a Crown, what do you feel are the most important qualities you bring to the role?
I’m inquisitive/curious, a straight shooter and I listen to my constituency’s concerns with a discerning ear.
Midwest BSFA: What interests or events does your House plan to promote during the convention?
The House of Diamonds will have copies of Airship Ashanti’s 2017 multicultural calendar for sale as well as Midwest BSFA buttons and House Diamond members will receive a special diamond-themed drink if they know the secret password!
Midwest BSFA: What, if any, are the guiding themes associated with your House?
The symbolism and value of diamonds are seen throughout the world in different cultures and countries. As such, people who value/seek wisdom, diversity and inclusion, truth and unity belong with the House of Diamonds.
