Never Meet Your Heroes

9 September, 2015

So they say. And I can understand why. Will they live up to the hype you have created around them in your own mind? Will you be able to speak or will you come across as a bumbling starstruck fool? If you can string two words together, will you way anything more interesting than “I’m your biggest fan”?

But they also say that it’s better to regret something you have done than something you haven’t.

This weekend there is a comic con in my home town. So far so irrelevant to me, but Hannah – ex of S Club, ex of Primeval, currently resident in my heart – will be there. I’ve never met her, but will I ever get another chance? There is an enormous danger I will say something completely stupid that makes me sound like a stalker, but how could I cope with the knowledge that she was in my town and I didn’t go and see her?

So I will go, I will break my 100% solid cast iron “no photos of me” rule and get a selfie, I will get her to sign some of my S Club and Hannah stuff. I will stop short of telling her that I refer to her as my future wife on social media – that wouldn’t end well – and I will try my hardest not to gibber and drool even if internally I am swooing and screaming “ohmyactualfuckinggoditshannah” repeatedly. I will try to think of something to say. I might even tell her that one of the characters in my last novel was written for her to play in the film adaptation. Or maybe not. Too creepy?

Anyway I will come back and tell you how it went.

I won’t post the selfie though.
