We are deeply sorry to announce that one of our writing staff, Aimee Long at Forevergeek passed away recently. Aimee had only been with us a few short months but in that time she had written some fantastic content in her field of television and geek culture especially on fan favorite shows Breaking Bad and Doctor Who. Even though Aimee had not been with us long she had fitted in to the team very well and was in the process of helping us with content for the new store we were launching on the blog.
If anyone would like to pass on their messages of condolences please do so via Twitter to her own account @aimeeinchains and her friend’s account for their Fringe TV show fan site @fringenuity. Aimee also had her own website about Fringe and other Tv shows, there is now a donation button for anyone wishing to donate money to her memorial fund.
