There's no easy way to share the news I got yesterday, so that's why I state it plainly in the title and will state it just as plainly now.
Bravery is dead.
He had stopped responding to me altogether on Discord about a week ago, which I naturally thought was odd since he and I have spoken practically at least once a day for the better part of a decade.
I tried to tell myself to not be silly and assume the worst. But still I wrote him every day and recieved no responses even when I said I was worried. So, yesterday, on my way home from another obligation, I started online sleuthing to find contact info on his family, and got ahold of his sister, who he has mentioned to me many times before.
She'd been wanting to get ahold of me, but was unsure how and well, she unfortunately confirmed my darkest fears.
From what she knows, it was sudden. Possibly a result of some underlying health issue. Nobody knows exactly what went on just yet.
I'm gutted, naturally. Brav and I knew eachother well. We were even on birthday and christmas gift basis even though we have only ever actually met a handful of times in real life.
He would have turned 35 on August 1st. I was pondering what I should get him "once he got back". I had practically started rehearsing how to tell him that I didn't care how long he was gone as long as he came back fine and well, in case he was sick or something.Post too long.
