Can't even shout, Can't even cry. The Gentlemen are coming by. Looking in windows, knocking on doors. They need to take seven, and they might take yours. Can't call to mom, can't say a word. You're gonna die screaming but you won't be heard.

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.

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.

I can tell you right now that everyone is getting goats through Heifer this year. Fucking goats for everyone.

Thank you, Plei.

Freeze me like a popsicle and watch me melt

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

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

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.

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

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

swears like a comma

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