So yesterday was the Hugos. Not to bury the lede, Brandon Sanderson took my category. No Hugo for me. That leaves me 0-4 on awards this year. It was wonderful all the same.

The old saw about it being an honor to be nominated is very true. I was in excellent company. And some real cool things happened. [info]the_child and I were thrilled to give the Campbell tiara to the talented Mur Lafferty. Mur accepted the tiara with grace and wore it with style. Toastmaster Paul Cornell organized an impromptu on-stage tribute to me that made me cry. Odd and funny things happened all day. (For example, misplacing the tiara prior to the ceremony...)

It was a great day and a great weekend for all sorts of reasons. Lisa Costello and I are off for home in a few hours.

I love you all. Thank you.

The Campbell has a tiara? Is it an elisem tiara? Did they borrow this idea from the Tiptree? (If so, I say good on them.)

Actually, stillsostrange created the tiara at the request of matociquala and me. It's more of a circlet than a tiara, technically. And yes, it's somewhat related to the Tiptree tiara.

The "they" who did this is me and eBear, btw. ;)

Well, go you and E. Bear. I like it when traditions spread. I like it even more when the tradition includes people of various genders in tiaras. (As Pat Murphy said when the Tiptree one got going, baseball caps are gettin' kinda old.)
