I always thought the name Serenity had a vaguely funereal sound to it.

ita's thread

A place where we can talk about ita, miss ita, and share information about memorials. The hugging started over here in Natter.

We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger

Thank you, Plei.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

I feel like we should give her a glass case in our Batcave with a pink gingham sundress in it.

Yes.

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

All her various online stuff. There should be an ita archive so if accounts get closed, it is not lost.

Not so nice is that I'm about to ruin a Friday morning for a bunch of people because of a series of unfortunate events and an upset foreign government. - shrift

What msbelle said.

No, I don't think I will - me, quoting Captain Steve Rogers, to all of 2020

Thanks, Plei.

"And to be clear, I am the hell. And the high water."

It has been a long time since I've been here.

and I just found out. I am heart broken.

Just heart broken.

This is kind of a stupid thing to worry about, but I'd hate for all of the stuff on provocateuse.com to just disappear.

If I only had a brain...

Things I know about ita
(in present tense because, seriously, FUCK THIS SHIT.)

She buckles swash.
She was born to wear black leather.
She makes a room 357% cooler by merely walking in. (This is an actual measurement. Sometimes it was more.)
She is brilliant and beautiful and smart.
In short, she's charismatic, and it's easy to notice just that about her. But she is brave, insightful, and kind, and the glamour could keep you from noticing that.
There can only ever be one ita. You can say that about a lot of people, but it's a demonstrable fact that one more ita would increase the coolness of the universe so much that it would implode.

And one thing, in past tense. She had a grueling chronic pain condition, but it doesn't have her. Not any more.

Tell me the ghost in the machine is real

Dana, I don't think it's stupid. That archive - it was a source of fun for her.

It's not stupid. It's part of her legacy. It's who she was. It's one of the thousand reasons why we loved her, and it's all we've got left. Which is so un-fucking-fair.
