[Book Review] User
User - Devin Grayson

User is the queer coming-of-age on the Internet story I didn't know I was looking for (but really should have been).

I grew up discovering the Internet as it grew from a specialist resource and message board hub into the complex sprawling hodge-podge it is now.  Not that Internet is not still growing and changing, but it's become something a bit more ubiquitous rather than something that's limited special interest or hobby.  There's still a divide in how people view friendships and relationships developed in person and online, but those relationships do occur and can be incredibly meaningful as are the worlds we create with each other.

User is a story about all of that and more.  It's about finding refuge in shared fantasy and friendship, as told by a young woman who discovers text-based online fantasy gaming.  The story is heartfelt and raw, dealing with difficult subjects frankly.  I highly recommend.

Wow.
User - Devin Grayson

User by Devin Grayson is the queer, coming-of-age on the internet graphic novel I didn't know I was looking for.  It's raw, painful, beautiful, and relateable.

The Awesomeness that is M:TG

I play Magic: The Gathering, just in case you didn't know.  I started back in 1994-95, then stopped in '96 and took an almost 20year hiatus. I started again in '15 as a survival mechanism to cope with a coworker who I daily wanted to throw under a bus [and when you swing a machete all day, sometimes you think about "accidents"]. Now I play a couple of times a month and just enjoy when I can play. Low pressure, low expectations. Some games go fast, some last for 2hrs.  It's all good.

So here are a couple of funny pictures. I'm not sure how funny they actually are if you aren't familiar with the game, but I'm willing to chance your boredom for my entertainment.

 

The Original Card

 

 

 

The Meme

 

 

 

 

Now this is just funny!

 

 

 

And that is why I love this game. 15 squirrels CAN take down the biggest baddie the Multiverse has ever known and Angels regularly destroy Demons.

My friend Kel and I are reading this together because we wanted to see if there were any extra scenes that didn't make it to the show.

 

There's been a couple of things unfamiliar to me, but I blew through the show so quickly, I honestly cannot tell if they are extra scenes, or just things I don't remember, lol.
