Not sure how many are aware, and I take no pleasure in saying it, but Thy Obsessive Freak has passed away. He was fighting an aggressive cancer, and after so long, he has, sadly, lost the fight. I considered him a good friend on this site, and I, as well as others, were in collaboration with him on a project that, now, I'm not sure we'll ever finish.

Rest easy, Freak. I'll miss you.

My god, he passed away?
Jesus... may he rest in peace. Can't believe he's gone...

Where did you get this information, Sig?

Edit: Nevermind, I found out how. But... how did Stooie know?

I honestly didn't think he was going to die. I was so sure he would pull through. I might have not known him as well as others here, but damn, I'm somewhat depressed now. May the guy rest in piece.

I wasn't even sure it was real when I first heard it.
Not because I thought Stooie74 was lying when she first let us know in the art section, I think I was just in such disbelief of it.

Just the way he would talk about things, I had little doubt that he would pull through in the end. I honestly thought he would beat it in the end. He was always making his comics and updating so often and always talking to people and he seemed just so lively. I looked at his drive and I thought he'd might actually go some where with that kind of work ethic and attitude. When I first learned he had cancer I was worried about him, but I had confidence that he would recover in time.
Maybe I was naive, but... I don't know.

It sucks that the candles that burn twice as bright only last half as long.

Rest in piece buddy.

i was thinking about this a lot during work
my first post i wrote during break but i kept thinking about it and....
it didn't seem like.... he would lose this fight
he talked about it plenty, said when it was high or low but...
it didn't seem possible that it would end in death...
because even though many people with cancer die, when it is someone you know
it seems less possible... it seems less likely.... you know?
it's strange but it never crossed my mind that he would actually lose this fight
it felt certain that eventually he would just get better so
it's hard to digest that that is what happened, that this was the conclusion...
even though i didn't even know him very well, we talked enough that... imagining him gone is a bit unbelievable...
i'm just a bit in shock and this will keep circling my mind until it can sink in.... which is just so difficult....

Damn. It felt like only yesterday I was being wowed by his writing skills, I was sure that he would win if another Literature contest came up. We talked about it all the time. I mean, his thread is still in the literature section.

Words fail me. He seemed so happy last time I talked to him.

Rest in peace.

While I didn't interact with the guy save for one or two exchanges, it's a damn shame that Freak lost the fight.

My condolences, I hope he rests in peace.

I saw Stooie's journal, and I told myself: Fuck, She's talking about an uncle of hers, right? She has to be.

When I let myself understand the odds were against that scenario, I was like: Okay, I'm ready for this. I cried for two days when we found out he was terminal. I've accepted it by now, right?

Nope. Still crying. Fuck me.

I think the last thing he said to me was a compliment on a silly little easteregg in a Freaky Nick page. Bastard always had to make my day, didn't he?

I talked to him nearly everyday for two years. When his condition got worse, I sent him an onslaught of messages begging him to send me anything he didn't want to be lost. He sent me a Chitso Samake manuscript he wanted me to finish, and when I do, I'll post it here.

If you're wondering Sigment, he also put me in charge of Freaky Nick. I'll send you some information in a bit, I don't know if Stooie will still be up to helping, but today I don't have the energy for it.

That impossible Freak of nature came up with Freaky Nick during a morphine high after a treatment. I climbed on top of it and we bombarded eachother with late-night plot twist ideas for a good two weeks.

I would have a few day intervals between internet access, and in the meantime I'd stress myself out to no end with little plot ideas and how we would design something or work something out. Once I got online and saw his reply to me, he was nearly always like "Oh, I got that decided already, it'll be [INSERT AWESOME HERE]" "You can decide, it'll be however you want." or "It doesn't have to be too complicated. Just whatever works." The fucker mellowed me out in seconds with a single paragraph. How selfish of me to think I could have something like that forever.

I promised him a Get Well picture, and it wasn't finished in time. Though I'm not concerned about that. I know he'll see it from wherever he is. This isn't a worthy world to be in if he couldn't.

He's still spinning amazing stories where he is. And when I see him again someday, he'll give little nit-picky critiques on how I went along with Freaky Nick. And make fun of the silly background cameos of Mizuka and Zyuu in any comics I make.

Goodbye Freak. I loved the fuck out of you. The world just lost a magnificent light it really could have used.

I think I only spoke with the guy once. Not sure. It's been a while since I've been super active. But seeing that he had such close friends here makes me feel like he was a cool person. Someone who has people miss them so dearly must have been. Hope he's doing well where ever he is and that he knows people cared for him here so strongly.

I didn't know Freak personally, but I could tell that he brought a lot of joy and happiness to a lot of people here. I had heard about how he had cancer, but I didn't know how bad it was. But anyways, my condolences to those who were close to him.

As a matter of fact, I just found this post of his on another forum:

Thy Obsessive Freak wrote:
Anyways, yes I'm totally religious, Protestant to be accurate but as if it matter between Catholic or Protestant and probably all religions, we worship god, pray and seek out spiritual help all together, so it's great to know I have people praying for me


Gah, I'm gonna start crying again. >.<

HIs last post is dated September 22nd. All his posts were optimistic (as usual) about the actual tumors. But it seems his kidneys became affected. I don't know if that was the final straw, but up until the very end, the tumors had been reacting well to treatment.

I'm so sad that I never had the chance to meet Freak myself. But without a doubt, I'm sure we would've been good pals. I would have loved to be friends with someone so strong. May he rest in peace.
