• An Open Letter From Tabitha St. Germain

    As some of you may be aware, Everfree Northwest concluded about this time yesterday. Most of us are just returning home from the whirlwind of activity, including myself, and you can expect a retrospective post from myself filled with all sorts of pictures later this week.

    One other notable guest has also recently returned home- Tabitha St. Germain. This convention was her first Friendship is Magic event ever. Most of us, if not the vast majority of us, were wondering if the elusive and hard-to-get-hold-of voice actress had enjoyed herself or not.

    In short- yes.

    Click after the break to read her open letter, which she has given me permission to reprint for Equestria Daily.

    Thank you to the peeps of Everfree Con.

    I just wanted to express my thanks to everyone who set up and welcomed and embraced me (in many cases literally) at Everfree Con. I truly had a wonderful time meeting so many sweet, genuine and wildly variegated leaves of my family tree. Steve cracked his kilt and Austin, Gummy, Jasmine, Dwight, Brian, Misha, Benjamin and the board practically blew a their collective bridle to make us all comfy and happy, and their expenditure of personal time and energy was epic. Gargantuan. Titanic. They went so many extra miles to make sure we girls had a little oasis to go to after bouts of merry frenzy. So, so kind and lovely of them.
    The hotel bed was great!

    Mike was the consummate host once again, even when in our 'how to do voice-work' panel we degenerated into a free-for-all, which, though deafening and not entirely useful, is actually a reflection of what sometimes happens when you leave a bunch of flappy-jawed nutters together. Cacophony pony. A great galloping many headed noise monster. Meet our shadow. Oopsie doodle. Sorry I had to leave before the end of the panel, because my wonderful security dudes had just taught me some military speak and I could probably have deployed some of that action judiciously right about then! HOOAH!

    Thanks for welcoming me to your show. Next time, I'd like to see more of yours. I had a lovely chat with your Granny Smith and just before the last panel, I passed a room where a beautiful Luna and Celestia were fielding letters from the audience. I just peeked in. It was hushed and magical, everyone sitting on the floor listening. When I come back I hope to be able to see a bit more your performances and wonderful characters in action and hear some of your music. I loved it in the autograph room when everyone suddenly burst into song. Ah. Awesome.

    Thanks to everyone who got their sparkle on, and gave me drawings and jewels and chocolates and carvings(Ed made me cry, what a love) and T-shirts and their own voice stylings and stood in line for too long. I can't tell you how much I adore you all. Kevin and I both shake our heads at the wonder of it.

    And, sorry Moose for making you the elephant in the room.

    Again, I'm so honored, thanks.

    -- Tabitha
