    Damn, that’s sad.  I didn’t know her, but I’ve experienced something similar myself, and it certainly hurts. *hugs*

    One of our members, and a personal friend of mine, passed away this morning after a long illness.
    Anesor is one of the people who encouraged me to write, and while the first thing I ever posted isn’t up any longer, she never hesitated to offer support, advice, and friendship while I tried my best to hone my craft. We wrote together, beta-read for each other, and even indulged ourselves in some private commentary on some of the more florid fan fictions in our favorite fandoms.
    I got the chance to visit her in-person once, and I’ll always cherish that day. It was like sitting down with a family member, because we knew each other so well by then. Her family was warm and welcomed this online stranger with open arms, just like Anesor did when she wrote the first review on my story, and asked me what happens next.
    I will miss her voice, and her strength, and her sheer determination, but I will always hold our friendship close.

    There’s no pending registration for you for the forum, so I’m assuming it’s the archive.

    You awake to find yourself in a forest clearing. Distantly, you can hear singing. It is pretty fucking tuneless. Oh fuck, it might be Bieber. To the east here’s a sign which reads “Quit looking East”, and to the West is a very suspicious tree stump.  If you choose to examine the previously unmentioned mudhole Go to 35. If you choose to win self-determination for the Republic of Molossia go to 63. If you want to know about the unsightly rash spreading across your buttocks go to 28 (Charges may apply).

    I went to the FAQ and learned how to delete a chapter, so that blank [Add story here] chapter is gone. My retroactive thanks to @Melrick for posting such clear instructions.

    Okay guys, I’m back with a quick COVID-19 update.
    Well I ended up having to go into the hospital. My symptoms were all getting worse. Not only was I having trouble breathing and whatnot, but between the chills. body aches and nausea/vomiting, I was faced with the harsh reality that I needed the hospital. I spent nearly the past 6 days there fighting to get better. I’d like to say it was a nice steady recovery, but it really wasn’t. Round about my 3rd night there, my breathing became so bad they had to put me on a CPAP machine. Let me tell you, that was hell. It gave me a severe panic attack as I felt like what I was doing was fighting not to die… 
    The next day I went to 8 units of O2 and I refused the CPAP machine after that. Luckily, that was when things started to turn around. The doctors and nurses really helped me, the course of treatment did wonders and when I woke up this morning, they decided to take me down to just 1 unit of O2. By midafternoon, they were talking about me going home. That is where I’m sitting now, writing you guys this message. I would have updated you in the hospital, but this site is blocked by their servers, go figure lol!
    I haven’t really gotten any work since this whole thing started, a month or so now. And, quite frankly, I probably won’t be anxious to dive back in right away. I want to take things easy and slowly get back into my routine. I expect I’ll be heading back to work early next month and that is when I plan to fully dive back into my writing, starting with the Secret Santa thing for CSL. Once I get that done, I’ll be back to work on BDH.
    Okay gang, I really just wanted to give you guys a quick update and to say thank you so much to everyone who commented something supportive or enthusiastic. I appreciate all the support and I look forward to getting back to work real soon.
    Till next time,
    -Mal
    P.S. I’m not fully recovered, but I hope get back to full strength real soon!
