    wildest dreams.

    I wish I had better words to say about Emma/Vashti, but she was a beautiful light in an otherwise harsh world. I hope we can perhaps collect some of her things around the site and pay tribute to her somehow - perhaps her digest work, her poem in squee your own writing, her gallery etc. It would be nice. I know we'll all miss her desperately, but at least we can remember her for how wonderful she was. <3
