about

This is a love letter to furry cons in the form of a stage musical. For the last 4 years furry cons have been our second home, and we wanted to be able to try and distill the good times, the bad, and everything in between into 12 tracks.

Follow Thistle, Sahny, Clover, and Baz as they plan, shop, love, hate, drink, and try to squeeze everything they can out of their One Weekend™.

Track Name: One Weekend
One Weekend
Perhaps my expectations arenʼt realistic
to think that any single conference could defy
a trend a decade long where I rot working retail and now Iʼm giving up before it all begins.
One weekend
where I can finally have a say
One weekend
that lets me get out and away so as I
clutch an airline ticket and a suitcase say a prayer for my one weekend. one, three-day weekend
One weekend
all it takes to find and make the place you want to live in One weekend
time enough to find the stuff youʼre missing out on
One weekend
every issue, every problem, every complication One weekend
give me just a few more days so I can get my One weekend. One weekend. One weekend.
Baz I have a problem, with my bank account
buy my commissions. Itʼs what this con is all about
I might get paid this time.
Soon theyʼll all wait in line for ME this One weekend.
One weekend.
One weekend
time to make it back, the flights, the rooms, the gasoline One weekend
Draw and sketch and sell my soul to pay the bills
One weekend
sure this can be fun but over all this is a business
One weekend
God, I hope youʼve all been saving up for this
One weekend
One weekend
Clover Donʼt worry darlin. Itʼll all be fine.
Iʼve checked every box, this train is runninʼ, and itʼs
runninʼ on time
Sahny Clover
You think all my suits will fit?
If we take out the boxes of wine
woah woah woah! I need those!
You can take 2.
I need all 8 for the game to work!
Okay, 4.
Ugh! Fine. I can make this work, at least for One weekend
Where the guys will turn their heads when they hear Iʼm coming
One Weekend
Maybe THIS year you can find your way back to your bed... ALONE
One Weekend
Reno hasnʼt gotten over what we did there last year Reno Hasn’t gotten over what *I* did there last year
One Weekend
And you know that we canʼt wait to do it all again One weekend. This weekend!
One weekend all it takes to find and make the place you want to live in
One weekend all it takes to find the one you wanna be
One weekend. One weekend.
Track Name: Reg Line
On the road, gonna beat the traffic There isnʼt much at 4am I can hardly move inside this car
In the back you can see "the magic" Mesh eyes starinʼ back towards home 800 miles canʼt be that far
What is this our fifth con this year?
I bet they already got our spot saved, in the Reg line, where theyʼll need to know
whatʼs your name and, do you have your ID? Reg line, get your badge and goooooo,
make the con your own
Now boarding flight 1948 for Reno, Nevada Group A numbers 1-30 come on down
Got a 2 hour delay sitting at the airport but weather ainʼt breakinʼ this smile thisʼll be my first time off of the ground. I Call Jesse as I hit arrivals
count down till the moment we meet I step out at door 2 and I see their car. Trunk clicks open stick my bag inside now itʼs only us for a 13 minute ride
Hi, Iʼm Jesse – er, Clover.
Oh hey, thanks for picking me up. I guess you’d know me as “Thistle”
Well, where should we go first?
Do you have your badge yet? No.
Well...
Take me to the
Reg line gotta get my
alter-egoʼs identification
Reg Line
get my badge and go, find my... hotel room


Weʼve had, some lights down, and an elevator so far nothing to scrape off the walls
I wish we could get ONE thing to start on time
Calling con-chair
hereʼs my next disaster
What do you MEAN “the systemʼs down”? Ugh just start writing it down
and weʼll put it all in later!
The con has barely started and weʼre nearly undone Did we rent a damn piano?
Seems the only thing thatʼs moving is the
Reg line!

Pause, Big exaggerated breath in
All Reg Line
tell your friends youʼre heading down, and where they can meet you is the
Reg Line
better get yourself into a suit, and stand still for hours Reg Line
just behind the...
ooh, Iʼm really not sure where it is
Reg Line
get yourself a bunch of stuff to forget in your hotel room Reg Line
Reg Line
Reg Line
Reg Line------- AAAAHHH!!!
Reg Line!
Track Name: Tell Me Something
Hello, and welcome to opening ceremonies. Itʼs the 17th annual, 2nd iteration, 3rd location for our dear con, and Iʼd like to list our... expectations.

Clothes must be worn at all times

Security is here for your safety
Our charity is here, the local animal shelter
We hope youʼll be as generous, as you can with them
our con operations room is 125

Tell me somethinʼ I donʼt know
gimme something I ainʼ never heard before
after 2 decades of cons, thereʼs not much can go wrong that hasnʼt happened at least 15 times already soooooo,
Tell me somethingʼ I donʼt know
Make my jaw drop when you walk in the door
thereʼs no need to be scared, the staff and I are prepared
so tell me something I donʼt knoooooooow!!
So I think it goes without saying. Please don’t wear masks of ANY kind in the Casino. They take that pretty seriously.
Just Tell us the con theme.
Yeah!
askinʼ about the con theme, son? well, we couldnʼt think of one,
so weʼll be sure to get on that for next year
we got some, last minute schedule changes
Dances now run till 3am and if you wanna be in the car show, YES, you must own a car.
The fursuit parade has, once again, been cancelled
but hey, if you wanna take a walk

they want your business but not as a giant cat, oooooh! Tell me somethinʼ I donʼt know
gimme something I ainʼ never heard before
after 2 decades of cons, thereʼs not much can go wrong that hasnʼt happened at least 15 times already soooooo,
Tell me somethingʼ I donʼt know
Make my jaw drop when you walk in the door
thereʼs no need to be scared, the staff and I are prepared so tell me something I donʼt knoooooooow!!

Well, uh. That should about do it for me.

Try to go see some panels. We got a band playing at some point.

uh... no vaping indoors. And remember, you may only board the elevator from the

ground floor.
If you go down to go up, Iʼll personally murder you. Thanks!
Track Name: Buy My Stuff
Iʼve been training for this weekend, most of my life
Start out doodling on napkins When youʼre only 4 or 5
Now anything you bring me Yes. Anything you want
I can draw it. I can make it If you can pay the price
God I need a dollar
I need every cent
Find me. Itʼs not hard to find me
So you can
Buy my stuff.
Buy my stuff.
Look into my eyes. Iʼm wishinʼ
Youʼd pick up a big commission
Buy my stuff
Buy my stuff
Sleep is for those of us who are broke.
Hey there I think we may be table-mates
Is that chair mine?
Oh. Yeah. I think so...
I guess Iʼm kinda running late Nah, youʼre probably fine
I really hope to soak up every nickel quarter and dime
Things are tight right now, and all that I need right now
Is for them to
Buy my stuff
Buy my stuff
Come get some color from our table
Is that YOUR linework?
Yeah. Itʼs how I am able, to make ʻem
Buy my stuff
Buy my stuff
So... hey, you wanna collab
some time?

I...[giggle] yeah, that could be cool
Letʼs grab a drink.
Think the table will be alright?
Iʼm sure they wonʼt miss us . . .

And that was my LAST ear of art school, if you know what I mean! WOAH! Wait, what time is it?
Oh crap! Dealer’s closes soon! I’m missing commissions, we gotta get back.
Who is this guy.
Why does he clear my mind.
Gotta get back. Gotta get what I really need.
For you to
Buy our stuff
Buy our stuff
I mean heh Iʼm up for whatever.
Think we could do better together?
Wonʼt you
Buy our stuff
Buy our stuff
I hope this place closes soon...
Track Name: Stitches
Iʼm wakinʼ up to a whole new shade of gray.
Iʼm seein things that might make some run away.
Look at the ears and the eyes, the tail that bobs behind and tell me
How do you stitch it all up?
How do you stitch it all up?
Iʼd call it "sculpture" but I might understate.
Iʼm tryinʼ hard not to overcompensate.
I feel the jitters as I step into the con space
How can they stitch it all up? How can they stitch it all up?
Iʼm in stitches
Can you take our picture please?
Iʼm in stitches
Is it dramatic to fall onto my knees
Oh my god. Holy crap. Baby this is where itʼs at.
Iʼm in stitches.
I am home at last.

Maybe a partial, or maybe a full suit.
I do believe this is so much more than cute.
Oh wow my favorite dog! Ya think sheʼll notice me? How can they stitch it all up?
Iʼm glad they switch it all up.
Iʼm in stitches
Seeing everything Iʼve seen
Iʼm in stitches
Itʼs like walking in a dream
Oh my god. Holy crap. Never seen a suit like that! Iʼm in stitches.
*gasp* and I think I found my crush.

Look at the colors and shapes. Can you commit and escape? Was this a custom or an auction?
I wanna know, howʼs the visibility? Do you need a cooling vest?
Is there padding in the chest?
Oh (giggles)
Well, okay, Y-you know what I mean, but seriously.
I need one of my oooooooooown.
Iʼm in stitches
Maybe I could try one on
Iʼm in stitches
Pop my head and Iʼll be gone
Oh my god. Holy crap. Itʼs my station and Iʼve been waiting. Iʼm in stitches.
Iʼm in stitches.
Iʼm in stitches.
And you canʼt cut me out.
Track Name: Power
I donʼt know their faces, never learned their names realized thereʼs a difference between
being in the crowd and being cheered onto the stage
Iʼve been climbing ever higher
see my name on every list
guess where all that kindness gets you begging, wondering what youʼve missed You need
Power
got to have Power
I used to think like you, be nice, play by the rules, and
surely Iʼll get ahead eventually. If I work hard. but it turns out
Itʼs not who you know but rather who knows you and if you wanna cut in line youʼll need view counts,
white knights, con chairs, check marks, free rides…

Gotta get that
Power
more and more
Power
Bring me that
Power
Ya gotta have some Power
On my own I might be feeble hardly worth a second glance
call me ruthless, call me evil
think youʼll ever change their stance Youʼre just giving me your
Power
I need all the Power
Power Gimme all the Power
Track Name: Realization
I guess I donʼt know what I was expecting. We barely know each other to begin with... and 2 days... What can you do?
Maybe I wanted more than he could give me. Maybe we donʼt have all that much to say.
Maybe Iʼm nervous. Maybe he hates me. Maybe Iʼm making it all too big a deal Iʼve been so open. Doesnʼt he owe me? No. Maybe itʼs time to look within
Every dollar spent on this is feeling wasted
all of the months of planning, building, orchestrating you were supposed to be my rock, my saving presence you were supposed to be my perfect iteration
you were supposed to solve this crushing desperation You were supposed to be, you were supposed to be, you were supposed to be the thing to fix it all!
Maybe Iʼm broken on the inside
too many hours spent online
all of the structures I put into place
have only served to compromise my health
maybe Iʼm working with the wrong guy
maybe I have to grow myself
under construction
under the impression, that one
weekend was the antidote
the fix for all the things I broke
the ever-growing manifold of
issues I cannot withhold
youʼll hardly recognize the mold here
once Iʼm done
Maybe go all the way
maybe Iʼll...
maybe...
Iʼm sorry
Track Name: Draw Me In
Hand me a pen
Iʼm 'bout a thousand lines away from getting to bed
but I struggle to care.
Out from the dark
out of the corner of my eye I see the spark
that first got me to dare
to think that out from underneath this pile of ref sheets still to go
the work seems easier
you make it easier to let go
Draw me into (Draw me into)
what youʼve got goin on
make me part of (Make me part of) every sketch till we hit dawn
I like money, but prefer your attention draw me in, itʼs where I want to be drawn
Ugh. this guyʼs markings are ridiculous
Let me see... Ooh, yeah. Do you want help with those stripes?
Please.
Lucky for us, the zoo doesnʼt close till 3am
You call that luck?
beats disturbing your roommates
true
Tell me who would pick this job
or is it the kind of job that picks you
itʼs time to laminate
but we could procrastinate
Both as long as Iʼm with you!
Draw me into (Draw me into)
what youʼve got goin on
make me part of (Make me part of) every sketch till we hit dawn
I like money, but prefer your attention draw me in, itʼs where I want to be drawn
Alright. So... oh crap. Do you have a hole punch?
Yeah! Do you have any badge clips?
.... Iʼm not the most prepared person.
hehehe Itʼs fine have some of mine
I really donʼt know how this con would have gone without you.
Track Name: Goin' all in
Oh my GOD Iʼm so ready Youʼre getting in suit?
You’re getting in suit?
I mean, YEAH, t’s Saturday Night!
Aw jeeze, how hard are we GOIN tonight?
WELL. 
Iʼm going all in
Till I canʼt anymore
Till parts of me that I didn’t even know could be are turning sore
I work for my money
… Sahny
ey donʼt you tell me
It isnʼt every day that you turn 23
I thought you were 28 and wasn’t your birthday like last week?
Brrrrrrrring me my cup Till I throw up!
[Drinks and throws cup on floor]
Iʼm going alright Iʼm going all night Iʼm going all in
So uh, what kind of party is this again?
Uh, you kind of have to be more specific than that. What’s the first room number again?
1142
I have no idea. Um. But you know what? Let’s go anyways
I am right behind you or actually, you should probably follow me
Here we go! Come on darling!
Iʼm going all out
Bring on the shots
There are no laws if youʼre wearing paws and being thots
I got my chalice
and a 3 foot straw
showinʼoff the only reason
your head should have a moving jaw Bring me my glass
lord you ainʼt ready for all this sass
Iʼm going alright
Iʼm going all night
Iʼm going all in!
(Spoken)
To the Next room! This oneʼs the ooh
underwear party. Are you wearing underwear?

I... yes?
Good! Me too. In my pocket. Lemme just... get these on...
I never understood the whole underwear thing. How does putting on MORE clothing somehow make this whole thing seem dirtier?

I will not waver.
Hey honey, hereʼs some water I will not fall.
Oof! Watch your step
Iʼm cominʼ back
Letʼs get you out of this suit And Iʼll drink it all!
Iʼm going all in
Iʼm taking a stand
I know where Iʼve been,
Iʼll change what you mean by “way out of hand”
So get your cell phones time to begin
Iʼm going alright,
Iʼm going all night
Iʼm going all in
Iʼm. Going. All.
All in!
Track Name: Hey Buddy
Hey buddy how are ya feeling?
Ugh, can we tone it down with the Trumpets?
Hey buddy how are ya feeling? Thereʼs only one answer
Donʼt you sound self-satisfied Arenʼt you quite the romancer
My head is splitting, I mean, are you kidding cuz nobody sleeps in the tub consciously
I think my tail is missing, I canʼt find my feet and
you ask how Iʼm feeling... What did we do last night?
Well, I wasnʼt there for most of it. Hey, Thistle do you know where their footpaws are?
Oh, are they awake? Heeeeey buddy, how are you feeling?

Ugh!
I got ʻem right here, but you really donʼt remember how they got... "Lost"? Well...
10 glasses in and some rabbit asks you for a foot race.
I was there begging you not to, there wasnʼt enough space Into the hallway you scream “out of my way”
right into a doorway. You crashed in a heap
Shedding your footpaws you dashed like two outlaws.
You broke at least 4 laws on your way
outside to “get some air”
Yeah. That sounds like me. Did I win at least?
Yeah bout that, you kinda both ran in opposite directions so I’m calling it a draw.
And, my tail?
Um, oh, oh yeah, I think Baz has it. HEY BAZ you got their tail?
c-could you keep it down please?
-Oh right... sorry.
heeeeeeey! Youʼre up. How are you feelinʼ?
...Shut up. I want my tail?
Outside the hotel we chilled with the smokers and sweat-ers. You say “Check out my new dance move” and everyone scatters. You started spinning, your tail rips, goes flinging
along with your lunch which splats onto the sidewalk
Luckily your head was left on someoneʼs bed
so thatʼs one less mess that we have to deal with today.
You got a new nickname. “The Hurling Dervish”
Looks like I at least managed to keep the bodysuit clean somehow. So thatʼs a win. So where IS my head then?
Hey guys! ohoooooh. They’re in there? Hey buddy ho-
I SWEAR TO GOD, Cut it out. Where is my head!? Oh.. oh wait itʼs there... under the sink? How did it end up there?
We walked you back to your guest room
and then I went searching.
Retracing all of our steps, asking where it was lurking Some random dog-person had it on his person
could have been much worse if heʼd put it on.
on his shoulder it perched, he was making a cerberus I had to snatch it away and be gone.
You do the drinking and weʼll do the thinking now drink lots of water while we give our schpeal we wouldnʼt be asking if you werenʼt the ass-king so tell us buddy.
How do you feel!?
Track Name: Good Con
Packed my bags, know Iʼm forgetting something Wish I could take you all home, with me
Thereʼs a plane. Bound to fly you off to somewhere back to the inside of my phone.
and I canʼt stop thinkin, yeah my mind is racinʼ why canʼt I stay here with you?
Iʼm sad itʼs over, and Iʼm glad it happened
but please, please donʼt say it.
No. I wonʼt say goodbye
and I donʼt want to hear you say it either only time can keep us apart now
so I wonʼt say goodbye
but I can tell you
It was a good con
Here we stand, get in line to get out
kinda wish the roads would all be closed
Oh no more darkness. No I have seen the light
and Iʼll be thinkinʼ of you, as we crawl back home
and my job is waitinʼ and these bills need payinʼand hey.
I kinda miss the place Iʼm from
all the pictures we took, and the stuff weʼre bringinʼ home can remind us, can remind us of the good times.
No. I wonʼt say goodbye
and I donʼt want to hear you say it either only time can keep us apart now
so I wonʼt say goodbye
but I can tell you
It was a good con
One weekend. Time to take a chance even though it hurts, Iʼll be better
One weekend. Time to tell the world that you couldnʼt care less what it thinks
One weekend. time to live your life time to let ʻem in to live it with you
One weekend. If you blink you might miss it soak it in while you got it.
One weekend. Isnʼt this the life
and I wouldnʼt change it for no one
One weekend. I could go for at least one more week.... end!
