    To whom it may concern: i am truly stoked about this upcoming wondercon 4 one of it’s most exciting events in particular is the OUAT panel on sat. One in which i absolutely want to attend because it is my TOP Most Fav Series* also because this event comes after the BiG NEWS about the private marriage of Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas (Ginny&Josh) a.k.a *Gosh* Now that they have officially tied the knot it would be one of the greatest honors in my life that i would personally go there and offer my congradulations to them (in the hopes that we would get 2 see both of them) on my behalf of their happy beginning* i definitely hope i would be able 2 make it, it’s an event that should not be missed, and if i dont attend then maybe i might get another chance someday* i do hope that 4 all of the fans of the show and everyone in it, has a lot of fun meeting the cast and creators and especially the ones sharing their congrats to the happy-ever-after couple, we all certainly wish them and their baby the very best*
