[livejournal.com profile] ninepointsatyr, I'm still in "Holy Crow!" mode...

He has bestowed upon me a +20 Artifact of Sarah. Under promises to wear it often, and to wear it around him, he placed Sarah's leather jacket in my keeping. This is something she wore when I first knew her 11 or more years ago. This is something she personalized with her own artwork over time. I remember at least one evening it ended up around my shoulders while we were out and about. I remember it hanging on the back of the dining room chairs at my Mom's house when she was over. But, mostly, I remember her in it. In all sorts of situations, in happy times and sad, in adventures and walks to the store, in game and in life. I'm sure this jacket would be almost instantly recognizeable to so many people, perhaps hundreds. I feel as if I gain 5 renown just by putting it on.

Hell yes, I'm going to wear it. I'm going to wear it often and with deep honor and satisfaction. And I, sure as Life, am going to come back and wear it around [livejournal.com profile] ninepointsatyr and others of us who loved her deeply. Looking back on it, I think I may have been too stunned to say thank you last night. I'll remedy that later on in person, but I'll say it here too. Thank you. Thank you from the deepest insides of my soul.

I bet she's thrilled that you have her jacket. May wearing it bring you some joy and solace. :)

Before I left the party yesterday, [livejournal.com profile] amberrattus ([livejournal.com profile] keepersrosered's husband) gave me his stamp of approval on me wearing it as well.

[livejournal.com profile] ninepointsatyr told me it looks badass on me.

I think she'd be happy someone wears her with love for her and it.

I don't think I ever told anyone, but for years I wanted a nice leather jacket like that. I thought hers was awesome, even coveted it at times. There's so much of her in it: so many years, so much of her character (and characters...), so much creativity.

I wore it yesterday and felt as if I had a measure of confidence beyond what I possess when I do not have it on. It is like having a piece of her inside of me.

I'm babbling. I know.

Still, wow!
