Cthulhu Coffee presents its Midwest Furfest 2002 con report
Cthulhu Coffee is a website primarily focused on the horror genre. With such a predilection towards all things Lovecraft you probably wouldn't expect such a site to have much that would interest the Furry fandom. That's where you'd be wrong.
The self-proclaimed "web minion" of Cthulhu Coffee, one Melissa "Chebutykin" Kaercher has made Cthulhu Coffee more than a running gag about an Old One who loves a fresh cup of brew after his Long Sleep. Melissa has long been active in a number of fandoms (hence the diverse appeal of her site) and has made attendance at a number of science fiction and fantasy conventions a regular part of her life. After each con she writes up a lengthy report with humorous anecdotes, awesome inside stories and photographs to break up the lines of text; then she posts it to Cthulhu Coffee as a news item. Her reports are well-balanced and quite entertaining to read. As friends of the Web Minion and people who are involved in the Furry fandom it was exciting for a number of us to find out that Cthulhu Coffee would be making an appearance at this year's Midwest Furfest. What would an admittedly non-furry congoer think of our convention? Given the reputation of the Furry fandom within other fandom circles that she frequented, would we be able to overcome the bad press and rumors to make a positive impression? Ultimately, would she have fun?
Well, we need wonder no longer. "Cthulhu Coffee at Midwest FurFest 2002" has been posted and it would appear the web minion had a blast. Click here to read her tale about tails, ears, art, pocket-sized pocket programs, ranting gryphons, fursuits, neutrally-boyant forks and more.
Additionally, if you didn't think the con report was reason enough to have Cthulhu Coffee on a furry-themed news portal, check out Cthulhu Coffee's journalistic mascot, Cth'Harvey.
