Um, YES YOU SHOULD GO!!

Or not. I'm mainly with the 'yes' vote :)

klo_the_hobbit said...

Very much seconding the yes vote!

Neep said...

Meh. I think NZ would be better! I'm still gutted about missing out last time.

darklock said...

Holy smokes. Yes, you should definately go. I can't go, but friends will be there. It's the happening right now. :-)

I notice that the David Nykl Yahoo group was started in 2004. It looks a bit quiet at the moment. I joined and hope to hear from the mod, but if not, we start a new one. I think we need a place to chat so we don't fill up your blog. 'Cause we're holding back. ;-)

Erynn said...

Of course you should go. I think it would be very silly of you not to.

Not that I'm going to be there, but I'm sure you'd have a fabulous time.

Jane Jordan said...

LOL YES! David YES!

Mainly as I have fond fond fond memories of sg10!

Beanie said...

I guess I should say yes, seeing as most of my friends are going...

*selfishly wishes to say no since she has a ticket, but cannot attend*

Anonymous said...

Please please please!!!!!!!!!!!

I desperately want you to come!!!!

Anonymous said...

Yes, pease come. Pleae, please,please!!!!!

Ange said...

I'm going to go with YES, but we'll need you back in Auckland in October to keep Hewlett on his toes. Can't let him have all the fun. :)


(Hey, Neep, whereabouts are you? I think us Kiwis need to form a group of our own!)

Sarah said...

Please come- I really want to meet you !!! I will be very sad if you dont.

maryavatar said...

Oh yes, please come to Peg 2! I have a meet and greet ticket, and while I'm too shy to to anything more than go pink and squeak out 'hello', I'd love to meet you :)

strivaria said...

Of course you should come! You can stand around and heckle David Hewlett. ;-)

darklock said...

Hah! Groucho Marx. It's 2 am and I must be crazy.

dutch_eowyn said...

Well, since you're asking:

Yes! Please come to Pegasus 2.

I had to backspace 4 times to get the typos out, I'm that enthusiastic :D

Jane Jordan said...

I'm posting again for Katy B who says:
you "have to go for all those people who didn't go to SG10 and for those who did."



I concur! I loved your talks last time. (and your evil chuckle)

Dana said...

To answer your first question, Yahoo Groups are something like chats or message boards that allow people to meet new friends through their hobbies and such. :)

I'm going to say yes because many of my friends are going. And me? Stuck in CZ. :( I would love to meet you sometime, any plans on visiting again? I'm bummed that I didn't know about the con in CZ in 2005. *sniff*

Robyn said...

Yes says I.

...

Even though I'm stuck in Maine and can in no way go. I like hearing people's con stories.

And I know certain people who will (not) faint if you don't.

Gem Simpson said...

Yes you should!

YESYESYES!!!

I is going to be there so yes you should!

It would make me very happy :)

Maria said...

Of course you should come!!! Can you think of a better way to spend a weekend than being mauled by a large bunch of crazy fans? ;)

Witch of the Desk said...

Yes!! You should come to P2!

And surely to even ask means you're subconciously quite drawn to the idea.

Come on, you know you want to...

Rosie said...

David - I'm going to Peg2 and I'm pretty disappointed at the guestlist so far (David and Kate=awesome... others: not so much of an interest, and I'm a fan who's always championing the secondaries!)

I met you at Journey's End a while back and you were an awesome guest.

Please, please come - you'll make my weekend!

Angie said...

Definatley YES!!!!

Met you at P1 and you ROCKED!

angie said...

oopsie meant sg10

M said...

Yes, please, do come to Peg 2.

I'm attending it next week and it would be fun to see you.

I enjoyed all your con presentations in Sydney (both years) and for your sake, I hope you don't recognise me or you may think I'm stalking SGA actors (it's just coincidental that I've met 3 of the guests at Peg2!)

Francy said...

H**l YES! Do come to P2!!!! It'd be great to see you again!

You have a Yahoo Group? I've been looking for one and couldn't find it... *goes to subscribe*

Skiffy said...

Yes, please come if it's not too late for you to get there.

Rose said...

Why not go? Sounds like fun.

Re: the Yahoo groups - I tend to stay off mailing lists for a variety of reasons, but one with such subjectmatter is bound to be a cut above the general science fiction ones. ;)

Anonymous said...

Windshieldbug again here...

Yahoo!Groups are for fans that have a common bond. I've been in the DN Yahoo!Group...but it's quiet.

Too funnny, you should join and make us all feel special! :-P

As for going to P2.....YES! I will be missing it by DAYS literally DAYS.....but for Francy, and Gemma, and Kathy, and everyone else.....GO!!

Toni said...

I vote yes for P2! I won't be going, but I have friends who will be there, and that will give them more cool stories to tell me when they get home. :-D

dee said...

Yes, you absolutely should go.

Klenotka said...

Yes, Yes....err, ano, ano, přijeď, vím nejméně o dvou češkách, které tam budou a rády tě uvidí ;-)

mhera/lemonchicken said...

You really have to ask? You should go, it'll be fun! :) I know of some squirrels who would be overjoyed at the chance to meet you.
The stories we hear afterwards are always fun.
And if you are enjoying the whole con experience, how about adding on the Creation convention in Vancouver this march? *wishful thinking* lol.
Hmm ... a yahoo group. Guess I really should get over there.

dee said...

And in addition to the "Yes, you absolutely should go" comment I just posted...yes, I will be attending all the way from NYC. But the real question is, do you want to meet some of the people who actually post on your blog?

Suz said...

Yes! Please come to Pegasus 2!!!

Cygnet said...

*sigh* I suppose we would have had to start sharing you eventually. *g*

Yes, go. It sounds like fun and it will give more of your fans a chance to see that Nykl charm at work. Any chance you might come to Dragon*Con? Take care!

Lapis said...

Yes, you should go. Go and make Hewlett cough up a ticket to see A Dog's Breakfast, which is one of the funniest damn movies I've seen in a very long time.

Go! It's England, ferycryinoutloud. You will love it, they will love you. What's not to love?

That said, anytime you feel like coming to Southern California, I can find a con for you. Hell, I'll start a new one. Nyklcon, anyone?

Misty aka s_aurius said...

I will second...uh 37th no...38th that and say YES you should definitely go to P2. I will not be able to attend either, but I have several friends who are. I know they will be very excited if you decide to attend!

*waits "patiently" for a con in Central US.*

RoaringMice said...

Oh no. If you go, I will be sad. I decided NOT to go. If you go, I'll be kicking myself in the butt for bailing on this.

Oh, all right, go. Darn. Kicks butt. Kicks again. x 3.

Azicrow said...

Oh I do hope you'll come it'll be fantastic. This is the first con I've ever been to and I know I won't be able to make the ones out of the country so I would absolutely adore it if you were able to be part of the con. :D

Becky S said...

Oh, by all means go if you can. I can't be there but friends (Francy, Katie, Gem) will be there. So - Go! Have fun!

**wonders over to Yahoo group now...**

RoaringMice said...

Yahoo Groups predate blogging. They are a place where people can get together and discuss topics of interest to them. Topics range from, say, finding babysitters to ice skating to hockey to, apparently, David Nykl.

Holly said...

If you come to Peg2 I'll buy you a drink. Surely that's a good incentive! :)

Anonymous said...

PLEASE COME TO DRAGON*CON in Atlanta!

I'm going. I'll buy you a drink (or two) if you come to Atlanta!

(Bug again)

Carolyn said...

I've got no real feelings either way about London, but if anything opens up in the midwest US I'd have to say hells yes.

And Yahoo groups are basically mailing lists, my sorority uses them to keep in touch so we know what's going on, but other people use them to share experiences and talk about random things.

Muffin said...

Hell Yes!!!

I'm going to P2 would definately love to see you there! You should come watch the ADB screening as well! :D:D

Anonymous said...

From Tipsywitch!


YES, YES, YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!

Danielle the Paranoid Android said...

London is absolutely wonderful! You should definitly go! Even if just to hear the accents...

Snarkasm said...

Yes!! Please come to Peg 2!!

Gem Simpson said...

My friend Karrie is embarrassed/scared/shy/some other emotion-whatever, to tell you that meeting you at SG10 made her a fangirl for life and she really really wants you to come.

So please, Mr Nykl...come to Peg2.

Zerocool said...

Yes please we'd love to see you!!!!

Why are you even questioning it?

Blimey! YES YES YES YES!

I'll have what all the above people are having;-)

sueKay said...

Yes please!

And like Muffin said, it'd be great if you could make it to the A Dog's Breakfast Screening too :D

Emma said...

I join the resounding, and hopefully successfully persuasive, yes vote on P2.

faithchan said...

You just like to hear the fangirls beg, don't you... *eyes you suspisciously* ^_^

Anonymous said...

Yes come! We can probably dig out Queeny's red carpet for you, if that'll help.

Wendii

shelsfc said...

Yes yes yes!!!! Please come to P2 David!! Pretty please? :D

Audrey said...

I say you should go so I can grumble at all the UK people about how insanely jealous I am. :) (And you should definitely do DragonCon in September, just in case you were wondering. :-D)

fififolle said...

It would be brilliant if you could come to Pegasus 2!

Red Phoniex said...

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES

Does that answer your question? :D

Please go, it would be so brilliant and i know alot of people who would love to meet you (me included of course ;) )

Anonymous said...

PLEASE COME!!!!!!!!!! WE SO WANT TO MEET YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE SO GREAT AND FANTASTIC AND WE'LL BE SO SAD IF YOU DONT GO!!!

(what do you think, too much, not enough or just right ;) )

valderys said...

Oh, please come! You *promised* you'd come! (Well, all right, you didn't promise, but you did say 'Fear not, Valiant Britannia...' - that's almost a promise in my book! :)

Really, we'd love to see you. Talk about a perfect line-up... *sigh*

Rosehawk said...

Definitly go!!! And then I get to read all about the good stuff on the forum!!!! Fans are still sharing some wonderful pictures of you and Rachel from a few months ago!!

I with some of the others here. Come to a con in the Central US!!!!!

Anna said...

Yes, please, we'd love to have you!

ShepsAngel said...

Um, YES! Definately! Absolutely! Unquestionably Yes!

flubber said...

For you information there are two yahoo groups for you David. There is one that was formed in 2004, which has been noted is rather quiet. And there is another one that has been formed quite recently, which is the one that I have joined.

I hope that you will make it to P2 and that you have a great time. I unfortunately will not as I will be otherwise engaged at a role-playing con. (Make of that what you will! :-) )

Good luck whatever happens and, if you go let us know how things went!

Chez said...

Can you come to Melbourne again at the end of this year with David Hewlett? please? You'll be the better David! You didn't come to Adelaide last time Tony and Rachel came :( we missed you!
