A Little Stunned

I don't actually know how many people here read the Common Ground stories about Ezra and Kalin that irana and I wrote over on Y!Gallery. In the course of the years since we started that together, she was a constant source of encouragement, and it was fun to write with her. She was a very, very good friend to me.

Last night she died. She had heart problems, and it was always a possibility. I just hadn't wanted/thought it would be this soon. She's survived by a daughter and her husband.

I'm still kind of stunned, as she and I were working on further installments of her Kalin and my Ezra just yesterday and I'd really liked talking with her this past week. I'd sent her a gift in the mail on Monday, and was writing her birthday fic for most of the day today... and I guess my main regret was not getting that done sooner. I am glad I made the time to talk with her and write with her this last week. I'd have been really upset if I'd put her off... as it is, well, I might see both the birthday fic and the Kalin and Ezra story through and we'll see how it goes.
