Friends, welcome to our last Very Special Earp Expo EarperView! We close out with Heidi, who is the security director for the con.
Tell us a little bit about your non-Earper alter ego.
Seriously, at this point, I think Earper has just taken over all of the egos. The Earpin’ don’t stop.
Ideally: Earper 24/7/365
Professionally: Robot Wrangler*
How did you find Wynonna Earp and the fandom?
I hopped on the bus post season 1. I caught wind of the show after watching the ClexaCon 1.0 WayHaught panel on YouTube. A month later, S1 goes to Netflix and the rest is history.
Is this your first fandom?
If I subscribed to one of those DNA testing sites via mail in spit swab, they would find Fangirling in my genes. I’m just doin’ what my mother before me did and her mother before her. This is my first fandom on Twitter and it has been a life-altering, wig-snatching hurricane of amazing that has made my life infinitely better. But I’ll always fondly look back on the Charmed/Buffy/Smallville days when Fandom was message boards and AOL Instant Messenger.
What is your favorite fandom memory?
DragonCon 2017 Full stop. That is when I met all of my faves and we liked each other so much we decided to organize a Con of our own. Expo is gonna be so dope, ya’ll.
What is your favorite con memory?
Breakfast with Evelyn Andrews at ClexaCon 2018. I was hungover, there was no bacon, and I’m pretty sure the chair I was sitting in was trying to kill me. Also, everyone else at the table may have wanted to kill me, too, after I said Mon-El wasn’t THAT bad. I’m not good at reading the room. [ Editor’s note — This EarperView is canceled. ]
What is your favorite Wynonna Earp/Earper activity?
Doing no harm and taking no shit. Live Tweeting new episodes is a close second.
What has Wynonna Earp come to mean to you?
Wynonna Earp is so much more than a TV show. Three seasons in and it is more like a CULTURE. A culture of inclusivity, acceptance, love, kindness, vagina jokes, creativity… basically a giant list of positivity that I could go on about for days. It’s a place where I get to go to decompress. To be 100% myself. I am the luckiest.
Are there any pictures you’d like to share of your Wynonna Earp experience?
I think this pretty much sums it up.
Sweet potato or Yukon Gold potato?
First things first, do I have to lick it?
On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you Fandras?
I fall under the ‘Exclusively Fandras’ section of the Kinsey Scale
Describe why Fandras is a thing in 7 words or less.
“I don’t blow jobs without a please first.”
That’s 8 words. What can I say? I’m a giver.
What is your favorite Earp sisters moment?
“It looks like ol’ What’s His Name was all about the alternates. You and me kid.”
“Am I your backup?”
“I think we both know I’m yours, Angel.”
How have you Earped your life?
The increase in the amount of tacos, donuts, whiskey, kindness, love, and acceptance in my life since I became an Earper is pretty substantial.
What’s the Earpiest thing you’ve ever done?
I think the Earpiest thing I’ve ever done is still yet to be done. It’s a work in progress, but I always carry the Earpin’ spirit with me everywhere.
The People’s Choice Award makes its way onto the Wynonna Earp set. What part in the storyline does it have?
It’s the hilt of Wynonna’s new lightsaber.
Friends, thank you so much for joining me this week for this Very Special Series of EarperViews, and many thanks to the fine folks of Earp Expo for playing along.
