I caught her on a park bench, making out with a *chaos* demon! Have you ever seen a chaos demon? They're all slime and antlers.

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.

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

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.

Love is stronger than death and harder than sorrow. Those who practice it are fierce like the light of stars traveling eons to pierce the night.

In days to come we will wear our grief as a badge of honor.

So come, my friends, be not afraid/We are so lightly here/It is in love that we are made; In love we disappear

Yeah, it should be archived somewhere. I would hate to see her collection get lost.

Greece's financial crisis threatens to take down all of Western civilization - a civilization they themselves founded. A rather tragic irony - which is something they also invented. - Jon Stewart

Maria, could you post your letter in here please?

She had a grueling chronic pain condition, but it doesn't have her. Not any more.

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

Here's the I09 discussion of her death. P-Cow and I contacted Annalee to let her know.

Brought over from Natter, because it should be here too.

I don't think she'd mind if I shared this with you now. Because it's so very applicable again.

I know you're inundated with both missives and emotions right now, so don't feel for any reason that you have to respond to this. I thought I'd wait a day or few so it didn't feel like more of more pressure.

I just want to you know what while you can't help what you feel, *I* want to help what you feel. I want you not to feel responsible, and I want you not to feel like you're alone. As long as part of your brain can hold that knowledge for when you have more emotional ability to handle it.

That you're incredibly loved, incredibly supported, and that we're all here for you. I wish so much I could be close enough to you to hug you if you're accepting those, or just make you hot drinks if that's what works best. Whatever you need.

Take care of yourself, Maria, and let the people around you take care of you too. Do as little as you can get by doing, and feel whatever you need to.

Later, sweetie.


I'm going to follow her advice yet again. She was an incredible human being. I'm glad we're taking care of each other.

Omg I love the picspam of crying Winchesters. So appropriate.
