Thoughts on Monty Oum's Passing

For those who haven't heard, Monty Oum - the creative mastermind behind RWBY - passed away on Sunday. The announcement was made at about 12:30 pm yesterday via Twitter. The whole fandom is mourning. I decided to share my own thoughts on the subject on DA rather than on Tumblr (I've already reblogged a bunch of posts about it on my Tumblr page, anyway).

I was saddened to hear the news. I feel so bad for the RT employees who had to loose such a close friend. He meant a lot to them, and reading all their posts about this loss brought tears my eyes. Friendship is a precious thing, and loosing a friend to death is truly a tragic thing.

I am also saddened because of RWBY. As a writer, one of my biggest fears has always been dying before having the chance to finish a project and share it all with the world. RWBY was projected to have like a minimum of eight seasons, and to die after only creating two... That's just horrible. Even if they continue it without him, the fact that he wouldn't be around to see it's completion is devastating.

In an official entry on the Rooster Teeth site regarding Monty's passing, they said this:
As for honoring Monty, we will do that in our own way. In lieu of flowers or gifts, we ask that you simply do something creative. Use your imagination to make the world a better place in any way that you can. If you know Monty like we do, then you know he would certainly be doing that if he were able to. 
And in several tweets, they are encouraging fans to create as much as they can, no matter what. Life is short, so get creating now, As a creator, I took this very personally. I love writing, but I spend way too much time hesitating or worrying and not nearly enough time writing or creating. I definitely have to get my butt in gear and go for it, for the sake of all creators who were taken from this world too early. I need to write like I'm the next creator to be taken.

Throughout this whole weekend, I have prayed more continuously than I think I ever have before. (They announced on Friday that he was in intensive care, so that's when the continuous prayer began.) I know that God has a plan and that everything will work out despite this tragedy.
