Hello, friends, and welcome to a new series of EarperViews! This week we are going to meet some of the fine folks associated with EH Con Canada.
First up, we have CC, Head of Security and Medical for the con.
Tell us a little bit about your non-Earper alter ego.
I am a 52 year old mother of two grown men, one of whom recently got married. I am a registered nurse and one of three Certified Radiology Nurses in Canada. I am a Nurse Navigator in Radiology at a major hospital and am responsible for ensuring quality and seamless care for patients from Northern Alberta, Northern British Columbia, and a very large portion of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
How did you find Wynonna Earp and the fandom?
People on Twitter kept mentioning “WayHaught,” and so I fell into the YouTube rabbit hole starting with “all the Wayhuaght scenes from Season 1”. Then I saw that Emily promised to NOT kill off the lesbian character so I started watching the show. I was hooked. I started following more Earpers, and the rest is history.
Is this your first fandom?
I was “fandom adjacent” for Person of Interest and was devastated when Root was killed. This is my first foray into being a committed fangirl.
What is your favorite fandom memory?
When Emily, Kat, Varun and Greg came to the bar to hang out with Earpers after the Calgary Film Festival in 2018.
What is your favorite con memory?
EhCon was my first ever con, and I was part of the security team. It was amazing to see how nervous the writers, Dani, and Kate were before meeting the attendees and then how you would never guess based on their interactions. Also sharing the best falafel ever with my best friend while at EhCon.
What is your favorite Wynonna Earp/Earper activity?
I belong to a group chat for Earper parents. It has led to meeting some amazing friends. I am also inspired by Start the Wave and various charities supported by Earpers.
What has Wynonna Earp come to mean to you?
Inclusivity and love. At 51, I came out to my family and friends, and my Earpers have supported me through this journey.
Are there any pictures you’d like to share of your Wynonna Earp experience?
I gave an anti bullying lecture to college students, and Kate was gracious enough to let me use her #RockYourConverse and provide me with some pictures of her doing just that.
Sweet potato or Yukon Gold potato?
Yukon Gold (although TBH red potatoes are better).
On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you Fandras?
Describe why Fandras is a thing in 7 words or less.
Emily said I belong on the bus.
What is your favorite Earp sisters moment?
“I’m not saying it’s gonna to be okay; I’m just saying I’m here.”
How have you Earped your life?
I’m much more aware of times people aren’t included and try to take actions to fix that. I learn every day about being respectful. I keep moving towards being more friendly to the planet.
What’s the Earpiest thing you’ve ever done?
Flew 6800km on a whim because I thought I could make my loved one’s life a little brighter.
If season four saw the return of Kate Drummond, how would that storyline go?
Lucado’s twin sister comes to town looking to connect with people who cared for her sister. She loves the place so darn much that she stays and opens up a vegan cafe where people and dogs get to hang out together. She even provides the rescue dogs for you to pet. She gets invested in Jetri’s love life and becomes the Purgatory Pride Parade planner. She then runs against Bunny Loblaw for town council and wins! Then she starts promoting Purgatory as THE place for tourists wanting to meets demons, like a ghost tour in New Orleans, but with demons…
Thanks again, CC, for playing along, and I’ll see you all again tomorrow with another EarperView with one of the fine folks with EH Con Canada.
