This is my photo with Symphony Sanders, the voice of Tamika Flynn during the March Live Show Tour of Welcome To Night Vale.
When the show ended, my friends and I waited around for a long time just ‘cause we really didn’t know what we wanted to do next, when all of a sudden cheers erupted through the crowd. We noticed quickly that the voice actors as well as Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor and the band that played had just come out to sign autographs and take pictures and stuff.
Immediately, I ran to join the line and, incidentally, ended up right in front of Cecil. Which was awesome. He signed my shirt and I took pictures for a few people who posed beside him, then I was like “Okay, I gotta get to Tamika.” But it wasn’t a line at that point so much as a giant blob of people, because we weren’t instructed how to line up and thought they’d be in one area and ended up in another. ANYWAY. So I fought my way through the crowd over to Symphony, who was really just standing and waiting for anyone to want to see her (‘cause everyone was trying to get to Cecil, Joseph and Jeffrey). So I get in front of her and I don’t even know what I said, but it was something along the lines of, “Oh my god I love you and I love Tamika and you’re great and awesome!” And she smiled brightly and it was great.
Then I said, “And I’m a librarian.”
And instantly she glared at me and wielded her sharpie at me, then mimed trying to cut my head off with it. Then we all laughed. And I said, “I really, really want a picture of you trying to kill me, CAN WE DO THAT?” And her eyes lit up again and she practically jumped and said, “YES WE CAN.”
So she moved to the end of the table and I again fought my way through the crowd to open space. She was GLEEFUL at the thought of this. I was so amused and excited and happy. :D So a random nearby girl offered to take the picture for us and Symphony was like, “Can I pull your hair?” I was like, “YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT TO ME.”
After the picture I asked for a hug and she hugged me and then signed my shirt and I scampered off happily. I think I actually skipped. Anyway. That’s the story of how I got murdered by Tamika Flynn. Also she’s amazing. And bad ass. She also later gave us tips on how to do handstands better. Did I mention she’s amazing?
