    Passing thoughts

    I have never written a Fall of Equestria story, neither do I feel particularly inclined to.

    But, if I did write one, it might start something like this....

    The Story of Agatha: A Further Update

    No bad news today, friends: Agatha is still doing well. The fundraiser was significantly less successful than any of us were hoping for, but we're hanging in there. Stripe finally sorted out the issue with the account, which means that the campaign at GiveSendGo will actually work properly now.

    The Story of Agatha: An Update

    Let's just dive right into the good news: Agatha is back home and back to her old, hellraising ways. (Ok, so it's really not that bad) She's still taking antibiotics as well as something to help her stomach heal up faster in case of ulcers or other nasty surprises. Her breathing is back to normal, no coughing (in spite of home nebulizer treatments which I admit maybe I'm just no damn good at),

Dust in the wind · 6:46am Dec 17th, 2018

Zalabar sent me a PM just about an hour ago now to let me know that GreyGuardPony unfortunately passed away from esophageal cancer December the Seventh, 2018.

I'm not... surprised would be the word, I guess. It was diagnosed August of 2017, and I suspect I was one of the first people she told. Again, not surprising; I knew her for 16 years.

What I am is shocked. I think in large part because I had somehow convinced myself that as long as I never heard any bad news, then nothing bad would happen and everything would turn out fine. The tragic consequence of this is that I got worse and worse and worse about staying in contact with her, and so here we are with me shocked that this happened, and with me furious at myself because even though I knew there was a chance things would end badly, I couldn't be bothered to put in the effort to be the friend that she deserved to have.

Please take some time out of your day and let your family and friends know that you love them; learn from my colossal fuck-up so that you don't do it yourself. And if it still happens, learn from me anyway and don't treat your blog or social media like it's LiveJournal, the way that I'm doing now.

I'm going to be fine. A little time will pass, and I'll be fine; don't worry about me. If you are so inclined, however, please say a prayer for the family that has survived her.

I, er, I just...

Thank you. And pardon me..

As one of the friends who keeps breaking into tears at random moments... I guess I'd also appreciate some prayers. But mostly yeah; life is a limited time offer and you can't keep from hurting people when you're gone, so make sure they know you care while you can.
