Since about 2 hours ago on Twitter, Obsidian Winter's been making some pretty crazy claims about BABSCon:
- Apparently, WeAreBorg (Public Relations and Press Relations of BABSCon) revoked Draft's badge unfairly
- Apparently, BABSCon did not profit, is severely in debt, and use money raised for charity to pay off debts instead
Now, we at Horse News are
total shills for BABSCon had a good time at BABSCon and have shared great relations with the BABSCon organizers, and would like to emphasize that Obsidian Winter is absolutely crazy not quite stable, has had a huge track record of flipflopping and betrayal unreliability, and her words are not to be trusted at all likely to be inaccurate or unreliable.
Incidents of Obsidian Winter craziness:
- Releasing recordings of Final Draft's voice calls about the aborted Sweet Apple Acres for leaking, then claiming she did not want them leaked.
- Fucking with the Bronycon programming schedules so bad, she got fired
Now, this article isn't about those previous incidents, its about what is happening totally in the now right now. And according to this thread (I'll replace it with a Cloppers Closet archive when this thread goes dead) there seems to be a particular
part where OW claims are revealed to be bullshit and lies discrepancy between Obsidian claiming Draft's badge was wrongly revoked, and the stories she told at a lunch with Purple Tinker and /mlp/
|The American Grill, where lots of BABSCon spaghetti was dropped|
What she doesn't tell you is that during the little lunch /mlp/ had with PT on that Sunday, Borg and her joined us, and shared with us the story of how Draft got kicked out. Not only did she agree completely with the decision, she was the one who authorized Borg to keep the badge.
Shroo, who posted all of this in another thread, along with several other /mlp/ people who were there can confirm this.
The OP of the thread also can back this up:
OP here, and I was also there.We have also reached out to
Borg did have the badge, but OW said there and over Twitter that all three of them were in agreement about Draft's badge being revoked.
The charity money issue, however, I have heard nothing about until now.
Obsidian Winter was pretty damn enthusiastic about Draft's badge revocation at the lunch. Seems bullshit she takes those words back.
So yeah, there ya go. Seems like Obsidian is
According the BABSCon Twitter, Obsidian Winter is fired.
It is with deep regret that BABSCon parts ways with @Obsidian_Winter for 2015. We thank her for her contributions and wish her the best.

Oh, and as of the time of writing, it seems that WeAreBorg and Purple Tinker have now joined the twitter fight fray, and chat logs and conversations are being threatened to be leaked!
We are already starting to microwave the popcorn right now!
what @isBABSFucked is doing right now
Update 07:08AM EST
Lovely anon posts this apparently contradiction by Obsidian.
Update 07:17AM EST
We are getting in rumours that Obsidian Winter knew she was going to be fired as early as Saturday of the convention, from a few of our insider sources. It also appears this incident and these supposed leaks were triggered by Obsidian Winter's firing, and the firing happened before these leaks, rather than after.
With this, we revise the original title of "BREAKING NEWS: OBSIDIAN WINTER GOES CRAZY, BLASTS BABSCON (WITH LIES), HELD BY TINKER & SONYA, FIRED"
@Obsidian_Winter @SonyaLynn No, I came here on suicide intervention because I knew (correctly) that you would freak out when you were fired.-----------------------------------

Update 7:24AM EST
Purple Tinker is explaining her thoughts on this, why she was with Sonya and Obsidian, and how she relates to Obsidian's position.
Update 7:39AM EST
Capper has also posted the receipt of payment of the /mlp/ table to RAINN
Obsidian says that she had to pay for a VA out of her own pocket.
