08:25 am - RIP Stephanie Clarkson, thespian here on LJ
I am sorry to report that long-time Arisia participant Stephanie Clarkson, who used the LJ handle thespian, died yesterday morning at Mount Auburn Hospital after a long illness. She was loved by many, and she died much, much too young.

This weekend's violence was a political demand for a world where hate and fear of "other" are the norm. We will never accept such a narrow future. The coming days will be trying for the queer, Latinx, and Muslim communities, and especially for the many people who live in their intersections. Stay safe, and know that you'll always be welcome at Arisia.

11:35 pm - Leslie Legard Ryan
For those in fandom who knew Leslie and were wondering what happened to her............

This was posted on facebook.

Howard Cronson

Hi all, I have some sad news tonight. There is a post on Leslie Legard Ryan's Facebook page from a cousin of Dave's that Leslie has passed away.

While this news is not entirely unexpected, I am still deeply saddened by the loss of my friend. I can only hope that she and Dave are back together again, since they were truly meant for each other.

Please pass this news on, especially to Dave and Leslie's Starfleet family who may not see this or the post on her page.

[Dave Ryan, Leslie's husband,  passed away in 2013.]


Current Mood: Sad

02:53 am - Anime and manga resources
Very belatedly...here are my anime and manga resources. I do address hentai (Japanese cartoon porn) at the linked page, but nothing there other than the word "hentai" is unsafe for work—there are no images or direct links to images.

If anyone has any suggestions as to a better cyberlocker site or two, I'd be glad to have them.
