Oh, Alan Rickman. Your voice, your intelligence, your tremendous body of work -- you were a secret crush for me and so many of my lady friends. We are oddly bereft even though we never had the opportunity to meet you in person. Whether villian or hero or somewhere in between, your characters held such a tremendous range: cunning, witty, romantic, flawed, and beautiful. Always.
Thank you, and Godspeed.
