A place where we can talk about ita, miss ita, and share information about memorials. The hugging started over here in Natter.
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.
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.
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.
In days to come we will wear our grief as a badge of honor.
Yeah, it should be archived somewhere. I would hate to see her collection get lost.
Maria, could you post your letter in here please?
