ext_28880: Gift from Frodosweetstuff :) (white shores are calling)

Like a lot of you, I don't remember exactly when Mews and I became friends. It seemed like she always was there and always would be. It's very hard to accept that I will never read a new Mewstale, or receive an insightful comment or word of support from her, or discover new fic treasures through her recs lists. Mews had knack for seeing to the heart of things and knowing exactly the right words to say. She was smart and wise and nobody's fool at the same time as she was kind and generous and loving. And not many people, in my experience, can be all those at once. She was also brave in the face of adversities that would have crushed many people.

When I think of her writing, what comes to my mind is how filled with detail her stories were, so that you were completely transported into the worlds she created. She was an incredibly gifted storyteller and thankfully left us a wealth of stories to turn to for solace and inspiration. When I'm missing her, I know I can find her in Hometown Boys or Frodo Lad or Family. That is such a huge comfort.

Namárië, dearest Mews. You will always be in my heart.

That's the thing, isn't it--all we have to do is pick up one of her fics or scroll through her LJ--or our own LJs--and she's there. It's not the same but she left us so many wonderful, tangible things to keep and to hold.

You're right. As much as we miss her, she'll always be with us: in our hearts and in her writing.

That's lovely. I re-read her "Frodo Lad" tales so often, and always feel her warm presence.

Her braveness at the end was beyond beautiful.

*hugs you very tightly*
