PostSubject: BREAKING NEWS! Another Star Falls.   Mon Jul 06, 2009 3:41 pm

Sad news to report out of the World Builders Guild. Steve, the ambitious fuzzball with an opinion and ego unmatched by any other being of such a small stature, has passed away.

It was a tragic turn of events in the rainshadow household that has taken the life of one of the WBG's brightest young stars. Always a critter to live life on the edge, Steve died in a tragic stovetop accident late yesterday evening while attempting to light a gas burner with a match. Early indications are that he wanted popcorn.

Moments after the incident, rainshadow rushed in on the scene to discover Steve unresponsive. He was quickly rushed to the nearby sink, where he was pronouced dead on arrival a little after 9 pm.

Steve, best known for his edgy opinions and wild, purple fur, had been preparing to record his third session of Ask Steve, a weekly event on the WBG, when the accident occurred. No word as of yet if Steve's Twitter page will remain open for public viewing.

He is survived by his pal rainshadow and the cat.

We will have more on this tragic incident in the coming days.

I spent the whole night curled in the corner bawling my eyes out as I banged my head on the coffee table. (Sharp corners, too.)

He will be missed:

Steve, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for
With a friend to call my own
I'll never be alone
And you, my friend, will see
You've got a friend in me
(you've got a friend in me)

Steve, you're always running here and there
You feel you're not wanted anywhere
If you ever look behind
And don't like what you find
There's one thing you should know
You've got a place to go
(you've got a place to go)

I used to say "I" and "me"
Now it's "us", now it's "we"
I used to say "I" and "me"
Now it's "us", now it's "we"
Steve, most people would turn you away
I don't listen to a word they say
They don't see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again
If they had a friend like Steve
(a friend) Like Steve
(like Steve) Like Steve

Lyrics changed from Michael Jackson's Ben. R.I.P

CANDLE IN THE WIND 2009

Goodbye Fuzzy Steve
May you ever warm up our hearts
You were the fuzz that gave yourself
And set my website far apart
You called out to the guildfolk
And you lingered above us all
Now that you are history
You know our mood will surely fall

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing where to paddle
Once the rains set in
And I'm so glad I got to know you
Though I was an admin
Your candle's burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Purple was your fuzz
The softest fuzz I ever named
WBG created a superstar
But we lost you in the flames
Even when you died
Oh this thread still hounded you
All the members had to say
Was that chicken tastes great barbequed

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing where to paddle
Once the rains set in
And I'm so glad I got to know you
Though I was an admin
Your candle's burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Goodbye Fuzzy Steve
From the young man who's now less than what he was
Who sees you as something more than make believe
More than just our missing purple fuzz

I was quite fond of this:

For those of you who don't get it (Pyro Razz) that refers to a specific PI thread.

Breaking News:

Quote :
In a shocking turn of events, investigators now have more questions regarding Steve's Death. Apparenlty a piece of one of Steve's "Chicken Legs" was found in the burner. Scratch marks found on the piece of leg have led investigators to believe that Steve's death may have been the result of Foul Play. Investigators are now questioning the Mob Torturer known only as "The Cat"!

Updates to follow!

I shouldn't be saying this, as the investigation is still underway. However...

I have been in touch with the police on the matter. "The Cat" has not yet been named as a suspect. He is considered to be a feline of interest by police. There was an empty can of Fancy Feast found at the scene that investigators believe to have been purchased by "The Cat" mere hours prior to the incident.

Rest in Peace, Steve.

Steve didn't have furniture. He pretty much stuck wherever he wanted.

Usually in my pocket.
