The first thing I noticed was that the admins were busy eating the foods.We started discussing how to sabotage the meeting and get out of there early, so that we can visit the comics shop of our choice. I tried to make myself useful by lending my laptop to the kids, so that they can share animes in peace. I was also praying that they don't venture too much inside the danger zone there, I should have put up a, "You shall not pass this point" flag in some folders.
Anyway, the party started to turn wild, when suddenly Le Wild Chibi Hagu Ranger appeared. Her name was Farzima Shawkat and it was her first ever MazeCity meeting. Being the chibi liliput she is, her parents escorted her to the meeting and threatened Wasio to take care of her. Pedo Shadab was quite disappointed for not being selected as the caretaker of her. Guess her parents were well informed. Unlike many other first timers of the meeting, little Farzima made sure to make her way in the Hall of fame. She was hyper and super excited. It was fortunate no one got hurt in the process, well, physically that is. But she made sure to mentally scar some people with her "Million dollar question", which you might have already read in her too big of a review. I for one, thought some little kid (less than 1 year) was crying when I looked back and found her screaming. Wasio tried hard and almost choked her, trying to subdue her screaming. After a while I went down for dessert. Then out of the blue Le Wild Cute Chubby kid appeared and asked if I was Kira san. I felt like "Aww yeah!! I'm famous at last! People out of MC knows me!!" But then she crushed the feeling by saying, "Hi! I'm Shanta!" Yet it was a really nice surprise to see another member making her debut in the MazeCity Meeting. Also the fact that she came all the way from Sylhet to meet us was really moving. I also assumed she came with her parents and was really surprised to see that they were really young. I told her to go surprise the rest of the members in the above floor. She did that and instantly became the center of attention. She was tortured by Wasio and Devils quite a lot and forced to sing. At first she thought it was for a limited audience, but in a matter of time she gained lots of fan who surrounded her, mesmerized by her singing talent and started to fan her, since it was really hot in there as the A/C was not working(I think this is the longest sentence I used in this article). Also she was gifted with a Mazecon T-Shirt and a Mazecon Poster for taking the trouble to surprise us.
After that, Wasio begged for the audience's attention as he said there were some major announcements. First of all he announced that MazeCity is going to arrange an Online Fan Art competition, which is going to be MazeCity Facebook Group centered. Any member of MazeCity can participate in this competition. The winner will be decided by the number of most likes given to the fan arts. For further details follow this note in the Facebook group : MazeArt Online Competition 2012
The second announcement was that in the March meeting the design for the next MazeCity T-Shirt will be revealed and also pre-orders will be taken. By April the T-Shirt will be distributed among the ones who will have ordered for it by then. This time the T-Shirt will be on Full Metal Alchemist.
And lastly there was an announcement about a " MazeCity Summer Party! " It will be a limited edition party with entry to 50 participants only. There will be fan art and karaoke competition. Mostly the participants in the contests will be given priority while considering their eligibility to join the party. Also the staffs can be rest assured, that they won't be counted out of the contests and can win the prizes (except for the organizers, which this time around has been short listed). Lastly, there has been some discussions regarding a tug of war between me and Solid Snake(Mohabbat Jan) for a bottle. I tell you it wasn't any ordinary bottle. That bottle had saline in it and Mohabbat Jan was in desperate need of it. But I couldn't let him have it. You might ask what I was doing, carrying a bottle of saline in the first place. Well I usually kidnap little kid ghosts and capture them inside that bottle of Saline. The solution keeps them healthy. That's why it is my precious. Now that you know the secret, I can't let you guys rat me out. Look very closely to this shiny little rod and you'll never remember you read this.
