“Fringe is a story about love strong enough to break the world, and strong enough to heal it.”
Fringenuity co-founder Aimee Long (@aimeeinchains) died in her sleep this week. The quote above was inside the Thank You cards given by the Fringenuity team a year ago to Fringe cast, crew and others who made a difference to her show. And the same could be said about Aimee. Hers is a story about a love for a show strong enough to save it. When Fringe was in danger of not being renewed for its final season, she organized a team and thousands of fans around the world to fight for it through Friday night social media campaigns. And it worked in a way that Save Our Show campaigns hardly ever do because of Aimee.
Her fiancé Bob hoped that she made a difference in our lives as much as the Fringe fandom did in hers. Yes she made a incalcuable difference. For me she symbolizes a field of white tulips in a Vancouver winter.
Aimee Long’s funeral is this Monday, November 11th, in Ironton, Ohio.
