In theory, I totally want to be a part of this conversation about accessibility at fan conventions. In practice, I have absolutely nothing to contribute. Because the idea of making other people be quiet when a situation is too loud for me, instead of either dealing with it or leaving, is just completely outside what I normally think about.

Like, “there should be quiet break rooms” = yes, definitely, this is a useful idea, I would use them.

The idea that party rooms could be quieter = ?????

I did learn that one of my local-ish conventions tapes its costume competition and other big events, and makes them available to watch on the TVs in the hotel rooms. With closed captioning, even. That’s pretty cool.
