“For me, the issue has never been sexuality — crushes and lust and love come easily enough, and I’ve never cared what anyone else thought of my choices whether they were critical of the personality or gender of my chosen partner — it’s moving through the world with a particular set of gender expectations applied to me that’s always made me uncomfortable,” Grayson said. “It’s not that I’m a tomboy — I have a lot of very traditionally feminine traits and behaviors, but I also have several that are classically ascribed to males, and finding a way to make the world accept any kind of range or fluidity in your nature seems astonishingly difficult." -Devin Grayson

“At some point in my teens, my dad walked in on me kissing a girl on the living room couch, and he called me downstairs for a ‘private discussion’ and seemed very upset, though I honestly had no idea why. He asked if we were ‘practicing,’ and I laughed and said something obnoxious like, ‘No, Dad, we’ve pretty much got it down,’ and I watched him just deflate. He had no idea what to say or do, and I think even realized that he wasn’t totally sure why he was mad. A few hours later he interrupted us again to yell at me about putting the cheese away wrong –not wrapping it up properly– and he was way more upset than one would need to be over refrigerator cheese etiquette, but eventually I learned how to wrap cheese up properly and he learned that it was just as uncomfortable for him when I kissed boys, so he might as well stay out of the whole thing." - Devin Grayson

"[In] the summer of 1993 [...] I was still new to the U.S. and I was struck by how powerfully my friends reacted to Bill Clinton, who had become president about eight months earlier. They had been so happy when Clinton was elected, as if he was going to fix everything. And when some time had passed and he hadn't yet done the things they'd expected, they were genuinely heartbroken, as if something deeply religious had gone wrong. It seemed clear to me that they were yearning for a savior, someone to sort it all out for them. So I thought I'd do a story, in the form of synoptic gospel, in which I'd give my friends the kind of president they wanted."

-- Neil Gaiman in Hy Bender's The Sandman Companion, 182

In my previous post, the First of the Fallen told a very unpriestly priest something that made him lose his faith and become a mad serial killer. Twenty-five years later, he restored the priest's sanity (but not his faith) and arranged things so he'd meet his now grown up would-be victim, John Constantine, one last time. Why? To serve as a warning for Constantine that the Devil was coming for him and that, just before he died and went to Hell, he'd hear the Devil's confession too. And now that time has come.

Note: some gore (of the blood-coughing-up sort).
