All Sherlock fans: you HAVE to read this!!!



// Sherlockians please read this, it is important. //

So when tumblr people get together, we discuss fandoms. It just so happened that the fandom on the board tonight was Sherlock. So naturally, as fans do, we started on discussing alternate universes. So- one that we came up with that doesn’t exist yet but should is McLock. Now, to tell you about McLock and why you should be lovin’ it.
I know I’m lovin’ it.

Sherlock is Ronald McDonald, the super slooth, clown, detective, and John is the Burger King. It’s kind of a Romeo Juliet tale with the division of sides and all. Mycroft is Mayer McCheese, Molly is birdie, Lyestrade is Grimace. Jim has to be the Hamburgerler- because honey, you should see him in a mask. Irene is Jack from Jack in the box who pops out from hiding occasionally to scream, “Got ya bitch!” Finally Mrs. Hudson is the Dairy Queen.

This needs to be a thing. We are making it a thing. This includes art and fanfiction for this. Sherlock fandom, we are going to share this with you, this needs to be shared with the world.

I believe in McLock.

Hotel Room Allotment!


Everyone say a big thank you to the Renaissance Schaumburg! We’ve gotten 20 more rooms for Thursday night, and we will be working on Sunday night’s rooms next. However, we’ve already sold some of the rooms since we got them, leaving us with 19 rooms on Thursday night, and 5 rooms on Sunday. Please make sure to book in advance if you need rooms on Thursday or Sunday night! 

We have nearly 45% of our room block filled, so please make sure to book a room as soon as you are able! We want to make sure you get the best of everything at DashCon, and the Renaissance Schaumburg is part of that experience!

This Halloween, DashCon-goers, will be DashCon’s first big lottery drawing. On October 31, 2014, and the last day of each month thereafter (through June 2014), DashCon’s Secret Police will choose 10 lucky badge-holders to attend the Welcome to Night Vale Meet & Greet/Autograph Session at DashCon 2014. Under close watch of the hooded figures, 10 attendees will be chosen each month via random number generator and announced during a LiveStream on our YouTube channel. DashCon Community Admins have put together a few helpful tips for winning.

  • You must be registered for DashCon to enter the DashCon Lottery (as proven by your Invoice ID)
  • Names will be chosen ONLY from a list of those registered to play
  • Only one entry will be allowed per attendee (and we will be checking)
  • The sooner you enter, the higher your chances of winning

Our Thursday rooms are all gone!


Please wait with us! We’re going to work and get more moved over onto that day, but we can’t guarantee it. Please reblog this post if you need a room on Thursday night and we will do our best to accommodate you! 

More news on the situation tomorrow, we will do our best to get more rooms for you! 

Additionally, Friday and Saturday rooms are nearly half gone, if you need only those days please make sure to book sometime soon! We estimate the remaining rooms will last ~2 months or less. Sunday has only 16 rooms left.
