Sad news about valerie_z 
24th-Jan-2013 06:43 pm
keswindhover told me some terrible news this afternoon. valerie_z's sister talula728 has posted that Valerie was hospitalized due to a drug interaction. In the comments she states Valerie was declared dead today.

Valerie was a delightful spirit and a wonderful writer. She also provided a playground for the BtVS fandom with her Band of Buggered forum. She had only two rules: 1. Don't do anything illegal and 2. No Creed. I met many people on that board who are my friends to this day. My heart goes out to her family.

How terribly sad.

I still can't even hardly believe it.

Me either. I'm numb right now from the shock.

Such sad news. *hugs*

i've never interacted with her, which is my loss. but i'll always remember Valerie through her "Super Food World," the fic that's left me with the enduring image of Buffy and Spike negotiating emotional detente while shopping for groceries.

Yes, that is a splendid story. Sorry to hear the sad news.

I loved Super Food World--that was how I met her. I wrote her about how much I like that fic!

Oh my GOD! I'm friends with her on facebook and did not know this. :( I, too, met Valerie and most of my fandom friends on Band of Buggered. She was such a great person, and seemed to be finally in a happier place in her life. I am so saddened by this unexpected news.

That is dreadful news. I'm so very sorry for her family and friends. I remember that forum well.

Oh no!!
25th-Jan-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
Oh no. What sad news.

I would not have met you without her forum.
25th-Jan-2013 04:55 am (UTC)
This is just so sad...

Oh wow... What horrible and sad news! I haven't interacted with her in a few years, but always enjoyed the discussions we were in.

Oh, no, that is terrible news indeed. I am so sorry for her family.

Oh, how sad!
27th-Jan-2013 02:01 am (UTC)
Oh, those rules. (And back then, rule 2. was definitely necessary.)

{{{hugs to you and all my WBOB friends}}}
