As we are drawing closer to only being a month away from the first annual BrittanaCon, we thought it would be fun to have a representation showing where all of our awesome support is coming from so far.  It’s really been pretty amazing, not that we already didn’t know about the kind of rock stars we have in our fandom, to see even just a small representation of how far and wide the Brittana fandom spans.

We also wanted to say thank you (again) to everyone that has signed up to attend or support our Con or who have even just sent along words of encouragement and excitement about BrittanaCon.  You guys are the best!!

(And a big shout out to sassyunicorn for putting these awesome maps together for us!)

BRITTANACON IS ON!!

We’d venture to guess that not many fandoms can boast honest-to-goodness, no kidding, published authors among their fanfiction writers and we are so lucky that in the Brittana fandom we actually have more than one.  The first among these gifted writers is the fifth author in our Featured Author Series, LingeringLilies.  She brings a wealth of knowledge to her stories, whether from her own background and education or from her extensive research.  She’s tackled everything from canon!Brittana to fantasy!Brittana with a little Hogwarts!Brittana in between and many more! In her own words, Lily had this to say about why she is looking forward to attending BrittanaCon: “Glee and Brittana are a flimsy backdrop for a thriving internet community of artists, writers, humorists, media enthusiasts, and all around good people who have a shared belief in the bravery of women and that love will persevere through the best and worst of times. While our attention was directed at what was happening onscreen for two of the most compelling and complex characters to grace LGBT media, the most fascinating thing happened; we created a community that demonstrates the same bravery and persevering love and goodness that can override the worst hand life or a TV show could deal us. The friendships, talents, and courage cultivated by this community constantly remind me how much good there is in the world. I can’t wait to meet a few of the wonderful women that have made a castle out of a few rocks and some paste.”

Perhaps most well known are the 500,000+ combined words she poured into our fandom’s hearts in Taking the Long Way and it’s sequel, Me and You and Daises.  The stories chronicle Brittana’s relationship starting in high school and utilizing some canon, but eventually carry through college years and beyond to family life.  Her words tell an epic story of love and loss, success and failure, joy and heartbreak, and ultimately, the realities of maintaining a relationship with the person you love when faced with all the challenges of life, career, and family.  These stories will make your heart alternate between aching and bursting from all the feels and are an absolute must-read for this fandom.  These stories have been adapted with some changes, published in various formats and are available for purchase. Lily has also created a series of Me and You and Daises: DVD Extras as companion pieces to the story, that are filled with the wonderful, family!Brittana moments we can’t get enough of reading!

Lily’s two additional complete multi-chapter fics are also highly entertaining with fascinating characterizations of both Santana and Brittany.  First Bite is a fantastic supernatural!Brittana/True Blood crossover that gives a whole new definition to the attraction between Santana and Brittany.  The story is full of sparks, danger and adventure, and plenty of the sweet and sexy moments we’ve come to expect from Lily’s writing of Brittana.  The inclusion of some familiar Glee faces fit perfectly in this ‘verse and alternate between terrifying and amusing! The recently complete Wherever The Dandelion Falls takes three different paths for Brittany’s life, exploring the possibility that random events can determine someone’s destiny.  Lily introduces us to a very different way of telling her story and variations on our beloved characters that leave us as fans with a truly captivating reading experience.

And finally, the most recent example of the exhaustive research she pores into her fics is her newest work in progress, Lilies of the Bowery. Set in New York City in 1914, this sweeping story takes place as one immigrant family journeys to America, full of hope for a better life in the land of promise, and the lives of two girls are inexplicably intertwined from the very first glance shared between them.  Lily truly paints canvases with her words, enabling her readers to see, smell and feel every step of Brittana’s journey in through this fascinating time in American history.  Extras meant to enhance the reading experience are updated by chapter on her tumblr adding amazing visual and audio detail to the story-telling.

Big shout-out to LingeringLilies and all of our attending or supporting authors for keeping hope in Brittana alive during the dark canon days. Please stop by their author pages, drop them a line to tell them just how grateful we are as a fandom for their contributions, and start getting questions ready for the fic author panels and discussions!!!

Thank you to all who are following and reblogging, keep spreading the word on all the exciting things happening as our countdown continues!!!
