At the risk of sounding like danah boyd, this whole ... Adventures in Friendship! thing ... it's, well, performance. It's fake. Right down from the title to the toes (hacker slang for posts!). Just keep that in mind in reading any of it.
Some of it is brilliant. Oh, how proud I am of those superpowers, and those Trampdance! flyers I think were actually quality work. And a toe here and there leaves me grinning with complacency, you know, the ones ... with the wit ... and doubleplusgoodspeak.
But the rest is just vaudeville. Don't read into it too much.
