You were one of the first friends to welcome me to LJ and I fell in love with your writing. You posted about your life and it's issues like the rest of us and we all got to know you better. When the crap hit the fan at Tolkien FF you stepped in and practically overnight created Fairie, an archive that I love and recommend so often. And then, suddenly, you disappeared. But whether you get this card or not, I hope you have a fantastic birthday, I think of you often, and I really, really miss you.
