Q&A with the Crowns:

Tory

 1. Amongst the other Houses, who do you feel represents your greatest competition?

I feel our greatest competition may be the Clubs. Their Queen is certainly a tenacious one and an accomplished thwomper of adversity; not to mention their allegiance to both the armies of Calamity Dawn and the Klingons. In regards to pulling off an exceptional soiree: we’ll really have to bring our best.

2. What do you feel your House offers attendees who may not have been to Pandoracon before?

House Hearts offers an open, welcoming place for anyone who feels… different. The people like us who frequent the fringe and treasure the strange. We bring our exceptional levels of glorious, unabashed nerdery to all and mix in a strong swirl of the decidedly dark and industrial. We hold our hands out to the shadows and gleefully embrace those we find in them.

3. What three words do you feel best represent your House?

Only 3? Such constraint is not a strong suit of ours. But, if I must: Voracious, torrid, and furtive.

4. As a Crown, what do you feel are the most important qualities you bring to the role?

My utter lack of inhibition is perhaps my grandest gift. I am loathe to stand to the back and miss out any chance to mingle and meet every new person I can. I fully intend to swoop about the crowds with frenzied delight to gather, greet and rally all I can.

5. What interests or events does your House plan to promote during the convention?

Well…we don’t wish to reveal our full hand just yet. Suffice to say, there shall be a high emphasis on dark, terpsichorean activity and aesthetic experimentation via parties and a workshop or two.

6. What, if any, are the guiding themes associated with your House?

If anything our core theme is nurturing fierce individuality. The Crowns and subjects of Hearts are each so beautifully unique and gloriously bizarre and we wish to encourage others to be exactly what they, and they alone, wish to be and show that they will be embraced all the same.

King Draven – ready for battle!

Draven:

1. Amongst the other Houses, who do you feel represents your greatest competition?

House Clubs. While I know that none of the houses will be lacking, the efforts I’ve seen from Clubs tells me that they will be worthy adversaries. I’m also quite wary of The Goblin Horde. They seem to be scurrying about lately.

2. What do you feel your House offers attendees who may not have been to Pandoracon before?

We of House Hearts want to create a place where all are welcome and beyond that, where all feel included. We fiercely take care of our own.

3. What three words do you feel best represent your House?

Passion, Debauchery, Hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian

4. As a Crown, what do you feel are the most important qualities you bring to the role?

Determination. Once I sent my mind to something, I put my all into it. In this case, what I have put my mind to is making House Hearts to top house of Pandoracon and I will settle for nothing less. Also, my experience last year as the 10 of Hearts gave me plenty of experience needed to successfully lead such a wonderful group.

5. What interests or events does your House plan to promote during the convention?

The Games and The Room Parties.

6. What, if any, are the guiding themes associated with your House?

Passion, companionship and victory. The competition may be friendly, but we shall win.
