Out of Order from Don’t Just Sit There), but with the perspective of adults with adult responsibilities asking the big questions: what does an adult do when her D&D group breaks up? What do you do when you’re old enough to realize that no subculture you gain access to will ever feel like home? How does one navigate the horror of fertility issues at a horror convention?
