And I might have put aside such interests, only peers with roleplaying games slowly became more numerous. I loved the way
RPGs let me explore who I wanted to be when I grew up.
When I moved back to the USA to attend college I discovered science fiction cons and costuming
for conventions. And then cyberpunk broke big with William Gibson, John Shirley, Bruce
Sterling, and other authors who incorporated subculture and darkness and brand name reality and
the sense that maybe this genre was for grown-ups after all.
Blue Blood very much came out of the scene where goth-industrial punk and science fiction
fantasy horror converged. So it seems only right to have a site dedicated to erotic fandom.
