FaberryCon Testimonials

Page last updated: June 5, 2014

FaberryCon is a truly special thing that has literally changed people's lives. We asked our members about their experience and why you should consider joining us. Here's what they had to say:

“FaberryCon is a memory I will always have and cherish.” -- Alyssa

“You will make friends and connections from all around the country, even the world. I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.” -- MonkeyDance78

“It will definitely surprise you. Think you'll be uncomfortable? Not a chance. The people of FaberryCon are so warm-hearted and welcoming that you won't have a chance. You'll be having too much fun! Definitely worth the trip, the money and time spent and the experience.” -- Ashlye

“It will change your life and perception of humanity” -- MisterMag00

“To quote my very feelsy essay on West - Jarrow created this place where we can ramble on about our passions and other people just get it. There are no blank expressions, just lots and lots of open arms. It really is the most beautiful weekend.” -- poetzproblem

“Coming to FaberryCon is the best thing I've ever done for myself. It's being in a room full of queer people who Ship the Ship just as hard as you do, who have sobbed over fics and projectile vomited on fanvids and hit the tumblr post limit every single day because Quinn is just so damn gay for Rachel. But it's also about community, and connecting with amazing people you might not have met otherwise, and creating friendships so strong and important that they'd probably give Ryan Murphy hives.

Do you feel awkward in new social situations, or get nervous when it comes to meeting new people? Doesn't matter--there's plenty of outgoing people in the Con group, and we're also super NICE, and we will make sure everyone is included and feels absolutely welcome. This is your chance to hang out with people just like you, who have the same feelings about the thing--and The Thing might not even be limited to Faberry. If you like something (Orphan Black, Frozen, OITNB, Pretty Little Liars, cough Fabrastings cough), say so: it's almost guaranteed you'll find someone else who loves it too.

FaberryCon is a weekend about attractive lesbians--the best weekend about attractive lesbians I've ever attended--but it's a lot more than that.” -- Kelsey

“If you come to FaberryCon you may find the love of your life, or at the very least find a family who loves unconditionally.” -- Pooh

“FaberryCon is so much more than a weekend of talking about how much Rachel and Quinn want to bone. It was the small moments, it was in meeting authors whose work made you see things in a whole new light. It was sitting around a room making party drinks, videos, and life long friends. It was about finding family, and acceptance in the simplest of ways, and for me it was about finding true love. And it was also about how badly Rachel and Quinn want to bone; I mean seriously you should see how those cut outs look at each other.” -- Kristine

“I think what I would advise is, even if you have some reservations about it, you should go. Don't let yourself be embarrassed by the idea of worrying that people in your "real life" are going to find out you're going to do this totally nerdy thing, do the thing if it's what you want! Enjoy your fandom life in your real life! DO THE THING. For me, and for so many others, it has been literally life-changing.” -- Pouty

“Like when you're reading a good book and you don't have a book club it can be disheartening to have so many feels about something and no one that quite understands. But at FaberryCon I didn't have to explain storylines or specify how Quinn embraced Rachel or glanced longingly or the passionate emphasis in Rachel's voice as she begged Quinn to come back to Glee club... when she was ready. Everyone already knew. And that opened up an opportunity for me to have prolonged discussions about character intentions and minute details. It was freeing to be metaphorically (and literally) embraced by my fandom.” -- babybear613

"Ask not what Faberrycon do for you, ask what the heck is keeping you from this rockin' party.

At the corner of gaiety and wonderment, you'll find Faberrycon.

If you've recently asked yourself, "What am I going to do with my time on the 24th, 25th, 26th, and 27th of July 2014?" Your answer should be FABERRYCON. (If you've never asked yourself that question you are obviously not a planner but should still come to Faberrycon.)

Faberrycon is like a high school reunion. Except instead of mingling with the people you were forced to spend four awkward years of your life with, you meet a bunch of awesome friends from the internet. Actually, it's nothing like a high school reunion. All the more reason to go.

At the very least, there will be food." -- notreallygleesecrets

“This was an incredible weekend in a very dark time in my life. I feel very lucky to have been there.” -- justcdntrish

“Come to FaberryCon North and I will buy you dinner and add you to my harem. Legs legs legs legs legs.” -- cheeky

“I have a fannish license plate and a new place to live and can play drums because of this con.” -- halfabagoffritos

“Look man, if you love Faberry this is the place to be. It's a judgement free fun fest with Robot Quinn and her Pirate lady lover Rachel Berry. It's beyond fandom, it's family and community. Also, lesbians.” -- Dak

“There will be partial nudity at some point. Do you really want to miss that?” -- CommanderDennu

“Describing FaberryCon in one word? Hella. (No, but seriously, it's totally worth it.)” -- emilyfreakingstark

“I've had this window open for way too long solely because I can't think of anything I can say that could begin to cover my feelings about FaberryCon, so... COME TO FABERRYCON NORTH.

Hey there FaberryCon
What's it like in Newark City?
I'm seven hundred ninety-six miles away
But girl, tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Times Square can't shine as bright as you
I swear it's true

Hey there FaberryCon
Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice, it's my disguise
I'm by your side

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there FaberryCon
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me, girl
Someday I'll pay the bills with this attending membership
We'll have it good
We'll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there FaberryCon
I've got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I'd write it all
Even more in love with me you'd fall
We'd have it all

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me

Seven hundred ninety-six miles seems pretty far
But they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
FaberryCon I can promise you
That by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you're to blame

Hey there FaberryCon
You be good and don't you miss me
Five more months and you'll be here with me
And I'll be making history like I do
You'll know it's all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there FaberryCon here's to you

This one's for you
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me.” -- Jess
