Oh yes right!! Someone asked me for the pattern earlier but I got busy and it totally slipped my mind whoops. I have school off this week though so I will definitely try to post it soon!
Ok so, meet-ups definitely aren’t really official! Probably the most official you’ll get is something like a meet at a con that has been properly approved by convention staff, but usually they’re just random people who say “hey! I’m holding a meetup at this time and place!” and then people show up. To expedite this process, (so you actually hear about meetups that are close enough for you to go to) a lot of places have things like tumblr pages and facebook groups! Idk how it works everywhere? But my city has a facebook group, and anyone who wants to can say “yo I’m having a meetup!” There are definitely a few more well-known and active people who hold the majority of them though, cause hosting a meetup means like. being responsible for people. scary. People often make them based around events or themes, and it’s really fun!!
So, it might be a little harder for you to find a group if you’re in the middle of nowhere? try thinking of major cities and/or regions near you, and searching google and tumblr and facebook for _____stuck. It’s also a good idea to ask any homestucks you meet; wearable fandom gear and conventions are both good for this! I heard about a tumblr for a meetup group in my region from a girl at school who recognized my Hope hoodie, and when I went to a 4-13, the host recognized me as a newbie and sent me an invite to the facebook group for my city. So now I get to hear about and go to a bunch of meetups in my area! I’m pretty lucky that I live nearby a lot of big groups, but I’m sure you can find something too if you believe in yourself! And if you don’t mind a longish commute, heheh.
Thank you!!! 0u0
