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.
