Woke up to the news that [ profile] minotaurs had passed away. I never knew him well, but he was a familiar face at every fan con I attended. His humor and smiling face will be missed by many.

exactly - I didn't KNOW him, but I saw him at all the cons, and was a little in awe of him. What slash writer doesn't find his tips site very early on? And he was at a couple of our room parties - I think one of the last times I saw him, he and Nancy were having a very spirited discussion about The Fast and the Furious. I'm still completely in shock that he's gone.

The whole thing was just so sudden and upsetting! I am still a bit in shock over it.

I didn't know him, but his website was wonderful when I first discovered slash.

*nods* I first "met" [ profile] minotaurs in 1998, I think it was, on the old Paris/Kim Slash Party mailing list. This was before he made his Tips for Slash Writers website. I, of course, met him at various conventions too, the first being at the now defunct Friscon, I think that was in 1999. That's a long time internet-wise.

What a shock. I don't think I ever would have had the confidence to write my first graphic slash story without his tips as a resource.
