Welcome to the Nerd-iverse! Where the people are made up, and the rules don't matter. That's right, the rules are just like outdated comedy!

So I was wandering around MegaCon 2014 in my Harry Dresden cosplay when a guy recognized me. We talked for a while, and he said “You know, James Marsters, the guy who reads the audiobooks for The Dresden Files, is here right now. You should go see him. I think he’ll get a kick out of it.” I said thanks, and after a bit more talking said farewell.
To be honest, I haven’t listened to any of the audiobooks aside from a preview for Storm Front (book one). I didn’t think it was that good, so I didn’t give it any further thought. But I thought to myself, “this guy is one of the few people that really KNOWS Harry Dresden, right down to his core.” So I waited in line and paid my $40.
I stand in front of him, and after a second he says “Harry?” like he recognizes an old friend. In a sea of Torchwood and Buffy/Angel fans, I was his first Harry Dresden. We talked for several minutes about how he liked my cosplay, and how the book series is so visual, that it really deserves a film treatment. I told him they were actually doing comic books for the series now, and he got so excited! Apparently, nobody had told him! I asked him “If they do make movies, what would you say?” His response was “I’d do it in a heartbeat if I wasn’t so short!”
I wish this could be one of those stories where the star breaks all the rules for that one special fan, but it isn’t. I didn’t have the money for an autograph and a picture, but he signed my staff and we parted with a great handshake.
"For the Grave Perils past, and the Cold Days to come…"

Thank you for the experience, Mr. Marsters. It was great to meet someone with such a passion for this character. And I will be getting those audiobooks soon :)
