doorsixteenCarrie Fisher was a total and complete badass, a great actor, a mental health advocacy hero, and my birthday twin. I loved her. ❤ If you've never read anything she wrote, please do—beyond being our Princess, she was an incredible writer. Funny and harsh and painful and dramatic and sad and witty and mean and totally hilarious and very, very smart. Her life was often a chaotic mess, but she was ultimately a triumph. Rest well, Carrie. I'm going to miss you.
- themrskendallAnd to think early last year, I imagined the death of Alan Rickman the worst of 2016. ✖️
- kornduckOh no.
- ahuckleThis one is really hard for me. Just doesn't seem right to have the world without her.
- emilylaclauOh goddamnit.
- lisettevandegraafHeavens! I saw her on live (British) tv just a few weeks ago! RIP
- moofiliciousHave you read her new novel? I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of her 1976 doe-eyed journal entries with her modern irreverence. What a loss.
- doorsixteen@moofilicious I haven't read the new one yet!
- doorsixteen@ahuckle I know you loved her ❤
- puddaholicFar too early.
- mnwritergirrlSad to see her go.
- kwhatleyI have adored her from the moment I first saw her in Star Wars. She triumphed in life. Smart, tough, irreverent, and buoyant.
- sincerelysenoraRIJ! Sending prayers!
- tinasloReading her books was like holding hands with a sister. She made it ok to discuss and explain mental illness and the reality that you can be off kilter, and still be engaged, courageous loving and humorous. All this, even though they were on sailing smooth surface under which were rip tides. For that she will always be a Hero.
- dawnpearceyWell said - thank you 💔 I love her too.
- meganfotogShe was a total badass. So incredibly sad that we won't get to see what she would've been doing and saying and writing at 70, 80, 90.
