I don't really know what to say or where to start with this. Most people probably have no idea who I am talking about. And that is fine I guess. She has not posted on here, or anywhere for a long time. But she was my friend in RL.
The last time we talked, we argued. She was really upset about a lot going on in her life and I was frustrated that she was not taking more of a stand to change it. This argument ended when I felt too frustrated, that I would say things the wrong way and wanted to step away. I hung up our skype chat and told her to go for a walk and we would talk when she cooled down. That was the last thing I said to her and I am still not sure if she saw that as she went off skype shortly after.
The last few days I have been busy with my own health problems and school. I never once thought that I that was the last I would hear from her. Today while I was trying to celebrate a Friday, watching my favourite TV show, having a drink and eating some chips, I got a message from her father. My friend had taken her life last night. My best friend had taken her life. I would never get to talk to her on skype. I would never laugh at the silly things she came up with. Such an inspiration to my art she was. She may not have drawn a lot but she was creative. She would give me all kinds of great idea. She was the secondary mastermind behind Levar. She was his number one fan.
Now I sit here, still very much in shock. Hoping I can get my mind off of things while I watch my show tonight.
So I guess this is it... RIP Mercury.
For sketch trades... I am still going to be watching that journal. But I don't know how active I will be this weekend. Forgive me if it is not 24 hours after you post yours that I get yours done. But it wont be too much more then that. I have almost everyone's basically sketched out so artist block from this should not effect me.
