    When I first heard about Universal Fan Con being cancelled, I’d just booked a one night stay at a second hotel because our hotel was booked and wouldn’t allow us to arrive before Friday afternoon. It was literally minutes after—when I hopped on Twitter—that I read the unfortunate news. Then, a few more minutes later,
