in peace

At some point in my teens, several celebrities I'd only vaguely heard of died in quick succession. A lot of the people I knew were upset about one or another of them, and it occurred to me that I'd never been truly distressed by the death of a famous person. Bummed out, sure, but never sad like I would be for someone I'd known personally. I wondered if I didn't connect to celebrities like other people did, or if I just hadn't been around long enough for the ones I cared about to die. I thought: was there anyone famous whose death would really get to me?

Terry Pratchett, I decided. If he died, I'd be upset.

A lot of people are digging up Discworld quotes about death, and that is good and right and I appreciate them, but I'm... not able to sum it up in a quote right now. I'm not really able to sum it up in anything. Teen me, you called this one.

I'm a bit on the radio silence end of things, too. I already miss the heady rush of a new Pratchett book on my stack, but I hope he is at peace.
