At a loss here, but - fannish sadness and a PSA


I wasn't sure what to believe when this comment about tenebraeli was left on my most recent public post; the person it's about and the person who left it have had issues in the past that made me wonder if it wasn't a rather sick prank, especially since there was a mostly positive entry in Olwen's journal for the date in question. I still have some questions about the phrasing and details in the comment, because that's not how the situation between them rested as I understood it from Olwen herself.

I would've been much more pleased to discover that it was a prank, though, than to find an obituary in the Monterey Herald, but sadly, there is one. Unless that isn't genuine, Olwen has passed away. No details were given beyond what you can read in the links there, and I have none.

The PSA part is this: if the comment about Olwen's computer is accurate, and assuming it does offer access to her LJ either because the password is stored on it or because she left it logged in, those who have her friended and/or on sensitive filters might want to change that, if you don't want people who are not Olwen to have access to your locked posts.

ETA: Some additional information from brangwy, which seems to confirm what I'm sure a lot of us were thinking.

ETA2: Also, there's a guestbook on the obituary, for those who wish to leave personal messages.

Ah, you! She spoke of you as well. You got her started on LJ. She was VERY grateful for that.

She pimped me into LJ when I was just starting in Buffy & Angel fandom. There's one line in one of her stories that I'll always love. It's a shame that her illness kept her from ever seeing that she had worth and a place in the world.

And if anything I say comes off as incoherent or wrong in any way I apologize. Flu = wonky brain.

That's right, she introduced you. Sorry about that. Every thing you're saying is coherent, no worries. I'm sorry you have the flu.

She never saw the world in the right shade *rose colored glasses.* Hers seemed to have a shade of black.

I remember there was a time you two weren't speaking because she decided to go back to Steve AGAIN, she was very upset.

But in all fairness, every one that de-added her did the RIGHT thing. This was the fourth time and she had NO reason to come back here.

Monterey betrayed her.
