If you're in or around Boston fandom, you knew and adored Badger; if not, just know that we lost an incredibly sweet, joyful friend today.
I may have more to say when I get over these waves of bewilderment and incomprehension. Badger had been very sick, but dammit, she was supposed to get better. The total unfairness of the world is hitting me like a sack of hammers.
EDIT: Per Suli, if you'd like to make a donation in Badger's memory, please donate to the Carl Brandon Society.
