After a moment to calm down, Julie returns to meet with Alexis. It's in this moment Julie realizes just how much this game really means to Alexis. I wonder what Julie is thinking now?

Also, I just realized I forgot to fix this page in my editing of earlier chapter scripts... She's getting the Ortris card here, but it's supposed to be Emos... Whoops...

See, why can't more girls think that way? XD

Also, Seaborn... that name rings a bell.

@Hippocampus: Jeniffer Seaborn was the main character of my old comic, Changing Stone. If you read that, then that's why you'd know the name.

Because

@Hippocampus: When we do, we're called "fake geek girls" "egirls" "thirsty thots" ect. Like if boys want girls to get into gaming, then they need to make the atmosphere less hostile to anyone who isn't male

@Kittygurl:
It's a shame people behave that way, because it's a hell of a lot more fun to have one more person to geek out with than it is to act like the lonely, asocial trolls that we are and simultaneously ruin their enjoyment and push them away.

Being a lonely, asocial troll myself, I do find my mind wandering when that girl sits next to me for D&D. And she's a teacher, no less! But all that fades away when the dice start rolling. We get into character, we're in the scene, we're moving through. Surly sailors, drunken dwarves, mud mephits... all the petty stuff melts away, and you remember with crystal clarity why you play the game.

@EmilyAnnCoons: Ahh, that makes sense! You did say that the two stories exist in the same universe.

According to page 4-20, Alexis at least knows Jeremy, albeit not in a fond way. So I am curious to see if she knows Jeniffer as well.

@Kittygurl: I will give you that one. I mean, boys have a tendency to mistreat girls in all circumstances, not just gaming. But in gaming it is especially toxic due to the whole nature of competition and guys constantly trying to prove that they are better than everyone else. To that point, I'm not sure if most boys even care to get girls into gaming or not (although personally I wish there were less guys and more girls, especially girls that think like FallingStar does XD).

My comment was mainly in response to Julie, however, in that she is willing to try out the game in order to get closer to Alexis. Many people I've met don't share the same hobbies as their significant others, and you would think that'd be a no-brainer because how else are you going to bond with a person? Then again I've never had a significant other so I could be missing something.
