Well this is intensely Not Okay and not the start I was hoping for 2016.
The news and the sadness are just spreading in all my online haunts and I am not sure how to deal. That is, I know tonight will involve booze and tears and loudly-played music IRL but I don't know about fandom; I don't want to bring that grief to GND but it's going to be hard and weird to insulate that little sub-world and just carry on unaffectedly. Or it might be comforting, and needed by people; I don't know yet.
Hugs to all us bereaved fangoblins.
