FK Fan Mary W.

Tuesday's forkni-l digest brought Lyn P.'s announcement that Mary W. has died.  It seems that she went by other names in other fandoms (FiliaDeCiara, Lightweaver), in case you knew her there. 

She posted one big story to fkfic-l, "Behold, I Make All Things New" in 2003, and she was so kind as to thank me in her author's note for the conversation we'd had when she just discovered online FKdom.  She had been a little hesitant, and then surprised and delighted, that FK fandom was full of people who took faith and religion seriously and also politely -- while playing, you know, with vampire fantasy.  By then, it seemed entirely normal to me, if it had ever seemed anything else, so sharing her pleased discovery was fun.

My condolences to her friends and family.

And while we're here, also to Abby's, and Judy's, and Lynne's, and Mary Lou's, and Christy's.  My apologies to anyone I'm not immediately remembering.
