At 12:10 AM on July 13, Amanda Fleetwood, known to many here as omichan, passed away.
A news story provides some context, and there are a couple of public posts made in her journal by her girlfriend zully that offer further explanation.
I'm sorry to say that I didn't know her very well at all, although clearly she was a fan of X-Men: Evolution, particularly the Brotherhood, and just from looking at her userinfo and journal I can tell she was far cooler than most. Clearly she's going to be missed dearly.
Honestly, I know my words probably don't mean much. In a lot of ways, this brings back the shock we felt at Miss Leonard's death. I feel similarly helpless trying to find the right thing to say to express condolences or sympathies or just the utter unfairness of something like this. Because, of course, there really are no words.
So I'm just sending love out to all those affected, including but certainly nowhere limited to pyroslut, simmysim, and lawofsyllogism... and, most of all, to zully. I cannot begin to imagine what she's going through. I truly wish there was more I could do.
