While she hasn't been active on LJ/DW in a number of years, I wanted to make sure friends and fans knew that [personal profile] sorcha_gaia passed away last night. Her mother informed her friends that it happened during a medically induced coma.

I first met Sorcha in person at DragonCon 2006, where over a panel table we discovered that we both knew each other's fanfic. (The exact moment was someone asking about fanfic on Livejournal and I mentioned my username, which then prompted Sorcha to flail and identify herself, and then we were all fangirling each other.)

Sorcha worked with us on [community profile] fandom_grammar. She wrote excellent Jack/Daniel fic. I wrestled her into helping me write Stargate Trivia questions. She always made me laugh. We rolled our eyes at each other, got frustrated, forgave, and then bonded again over Daniel Jackson. I will miss you, my friend.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend.

She did indeed write excellent Jack/Daniel fic and she left some great feedback on my fic, back in the day.

You're in my thoughts.

I think this weekend I'll read some of her fic. That seems like the best way to honor a writer. ;)

Oh no! She was such a PRESENCE at Dragon*Con. And I was so excited meeting her there, after so many years of knowing each other online. I, too, will revisit her fics this weekend. I hope she is resting in the peace of being free from a challenged mortal shell.

xoxo

Same. Hopefully she's now in a place surrounded by kitties and Jason Momoa's arms.

D: I'm so sorry to hear this. I knew of Sorcha, though I didn't know her. Sending you (and her family) lots of hugs.

Thank you for letting us know. I met her at that same Dragon Con.

I'm so sorry to learn this. She let me smoke her cigarettes and we bonded over J/D.
