When someone else's hero dies

Today the RWBY, Roosterteeth and Monty Oum fandom grieves. It was a very sad news indeed. Monty Oum died at 33, that was the first news I read yesterday morning.
Now, I can't say that I'm part of the fandom but I enjoyed Dead Fantasy once upon a time and I'm very amazed by how much of a workaholic he is. I seem to easily look up to workaholic people (Oda ehem). True, I may have seen only one video clip of RWBY ... and I think that was only a teaser video ... but that scene made such a big impact to me. Even to this day there are scenarios in my head that was like that scene. No one said that you can't be inspired by the art just because you are not part of that fandom.

I have no right to cry but I'm crying. I feel that the community lost an amazing man, someone who can do more if only given more time. Sayang. That is what I feel most of all. Sayang talaga, bakit ganun.

My heart goes to all the fans. I've seen a lot of fanarts, animations, and cosplays inspired by him. He had touched so many hearts and I just can't even begin to imagine how they are feeling. I have heroes too and I don't know what I'd do if they are taken like this from me.

He will be missed. I know he will. The inspiration hehad given to his fans will bear fruit someday. I hope to see those someday. Maybe heaven will be a more efficient place now that he is there.

so many tears because of deaths this year.. I hope we could all survive this year.
