Hey, this account still exists. Neato!

So I keep getting emails meant for someone who doesn't know how to write out their own email address.  I'm guessing that there's a dot in Trixie's address, but apparently not in this mystery person's (her name is Brenda); and her Facebook signup and her emailed application to Domino's got bounced to my inbox.  Honestly, if you can't remember how to parse your own email address, I don't want you delivering my pizzas.  Also, Domino's and Facebook:  a duet of horrors if ever there was one.

Getting this sorted out meant that I spent an afternoon going through old Nexus emails, trying to recall exactly what I said and to whom and why; and coming to the conclusion that Trixie, as she was then, was kind of shrill and annoying, with the constant pop culture references and the hipster-doofus nerdspeak, etc; and if that made her insufferable to anybody, I apologize in retrospect (which is something I do often).  A lot of the stuff she said and did really makes me cringe now. 

For those of you who are interested, she's still around--we've never quite gotten around to finishing Metatokyo yet, but Trixie is currently taking on a second-banana role in the YA novel I'm trying to write.  I made her a dude in order to make him a better fit as the main character's best friend, much to his chagrin.  But for the most part, he's the same Trixie, just different plumbing and hairstyle.  Same name, too, and pretty amazingly gay.  I'm hoping to piss off some parents in the Bible belt.  It's a goal.

I'm thinking about coming back, but I'm not really sure.  So, what's happened since we've been gone?  Anybody still reading this?  Anybody care?

Still here. Playing in a couple of jam jar type games.

...Did you know Jun-mun died a few weeks ago?

Oh Jabber. No, no, I hadn't heard. Ach.

She was always so sweet to me, and wonderfully tolerant of Trixie's antics. I often thought of her when coming across Gatchaman stuff. Funny how the people you used to know don't actually ever go away, until you find out they're gone for good...

I'm just reading your mun's LJ for the details, and I'm terribly sorry for your loss as well.

derek_bliss: Totally OOC

It was pretty sudden. A good portion of her friends were caught off guard...and/or regretting not answering emails or pings from her from the couple of weeks preceeding. If you look up Indy's or Del's RL accounts, they have more detail, and I think Indy has a link to the original post made by another of her friends over on dreamwidth.

She's going to be missed, by a lot of people. At least though, before she went, she lived a lot, did a lot, and was running 'free' so to speak and doing what she wanted and was headed to even better things.

foxitrix: Re: Totally OOC

I know I'll miss her terribly. I'm afraid that knowing she wouldn't be around to greet Trixie is reason enough for me to not come back...but we'll see.

Is there any way I could get a link to either of those entries? I don't recall who Del or Indy are, it's been a few years.
