A No-Longer-So-Tragic Announcement

Post  Stairc -Dan Felder on Fri 1 Feb - 18:32

This morning, at 11:56 am, Karilyn - better known as Inky Quills or Hallowed Heart - took her own life. Having long struggled against an ocean of sadness, Karilyn delighted many of us with her wonderful writing and inspiring roleplaying. She was a talented author, having written the first ever Pony Tales session summaries that delighted so many readers on the Friendship is Dragons forums. She also breathed life into some of the most popular combat talents in the system, including Gather Energy and Wild Abandon. Karilyn also created the architecture for our forums, colored the illustration that is displayed above as our banner and was one of the first four players to ever try a system called Pony Tales. Without her support and enthusiasm, it's possible that we would have never developed this system further than the single adventure it was originally intended to be. You can see her character, Inky Quills, as the orange pony with the purple mane in the lower right hand corner of the image. Karilyn has touched us all, her character's image now a sweet memorial to her - etched forever into the game we love.

The streets of heaven are brightened by another angel tonight. But the ache that infects those friends that knew her pales to the tragedy of those that did not have the fortune to know her better.

We love you Karilyn. Thank you for everything.

-Dan Felder

[11:17:30 PM] Zaina: Hey
[11:17:31 PM] Zaina: anyone online
[11:17:34 PM] Zaina: I have news about kari
[11:17:42 PM] Zaina: Hi! She's in the hospital. Earlier today she was still listed in critical condition, but stable. From what doctors tell me, she should pull thru this okay - no brain damage or anything like that.
[11:17:48 PM] Zaina: this is her adoptive mother
[11:17:53 PM] Zaina: That I had added on facebook
[11:17:59 PM] Zaina: shes in the hospital, somebody found her


Thank Celestia! It seems that the person informing me of her passing got a little ahead of themselves - and I've never been so grateful for being misinformed. santa

"TRUE FRIENDS
ARE DIFFICULT TO FIND
HARD TO LEAVE
AND IMPOSSIBLE
TO FORGET"
~ plack that I just bought myself from my "job" because it just spoke so strongly to me.

This is all I can think to best express my feelings on this issue.

I just can't find the words... My thoughts go out to her as a empathetic silence. I may not have known her well, but she will be missed.

"And so they fall into silence
The ones whose life she the light we see
Though the light is gone, the memory remains
And shall be valued and seen as the beauty as it always was."

Rest Peacefully and I hope you're in a place better then the one you were in.

I find myself in the same boat as SilentBelle; I cannot think of anything to say. From everything I could hear, her life was improving greatly. For this to happen... it shouldn't have happened. It is a tragedy beyond words. Rest in peace, Karilyn.

I... I just don't know what to... *sigh*

Rest in peace, Karilyn. May you somehow find the solace that eluded you in life.

...It's times like these when leaning towards the more skeptical side of agnosticism isn't very comforting. Sad

I have no words to properly express myself so I simply tip my hat to a wondrous person.
