So, Gail Simone (@gailsimone) started a Twitter conversation today centering around a really interesting question:

This may surprise you, but I have ~*feelings*~ about this topic.

(Please consider staging this short skit to teach con workers and volunteers to be aware of this very common, yet dangerous, situation.)
SCENE: A COMIC AND/OR GAMING CONVENTION. MR. GOODMAN IS SITTING AT HIS BOOTH BEING IMPORTANT.
BILLY: Oh boy! A comic (gaming) convention! I sure can’t wait to have intelligent, in-depth discussions on comics (games) with my peer group who share my utter devotion to our subculture!
MR. GOODMAN: Well, hello Billy! Would you like some free booth swag?
BILLY: I sure would, Mr. Goodman!
MR. GOODMAN: I thought so, Billy. Are you having fun at this convention?
BILLY: I am, Mr. Goodman! All this good will and respect for our source material is just making me thing WOWEE!
MR. GOODMAN: That’s good, Billy! Just be careful.
BILLY: Why, Mr. Goodman? Are you worried I’ll spend all my money in one place?
MR. GOODMAN: No, Billy. You need to be careful, because this con, like many others, has been infiltrated by FAKE GEEK GIRLS.

So, there’s been some rumblings lately that there’s going to be a Twilight MMORPG. And while I wish I was kidding, it sounds like it’s legitimately in the works.
But, as I occasionally do, I told myself: Amazon, it could have been worse.
They could have made a Twilight-based Magic: The Gathering expansion.
Allow me to show the horrors that would have come of such a thing:
And what’s a Magic set without a ridiculously overpowered card? Hmmm?
Oh, and since Stephenie Meyer has to be directly involved in EVERYTHING relating to her series, she gets a card as well:
So remember, folks. A MMORPG is bad. But it could have been MUCH, MUCH WORSE.
