Late tonight on the LG15 comments posts were made by user "S.A.R.A.H.", a long-time regular of LG15. These comments indicated that it was SARAH's husband, Ron, informing the Breeniverse that SARAH died in a house fire earlier this month. If true, this is a tragedy and a loss to the Breeniverse community, and our sympathy goes out to the friends and family of SARAH.
Some debate occurred on comments and IRC chat in #breefm regarding whether or not this was an attempt to spin off new fanfic or an ARG. The following posts were made on the LG15 Comment Boards.
At around 12:21 am (pst) a member of the lg community named S.A.R.A.H posted a comment on the main lg15.com page saying:
S.A.R.A.H.: “Oh my Gosh. Oh my gosh. The rash, I have seen it before.”
After which point at 12:27 am, a member named montelac posted a comment saying:
montelac: “S.A.R.A.H.??? Are you still here?? What happened to you?
S.A.R.A.H.: “Butterflies, babies with birthmarks, new church leadership...it makes sense now/”
montelac: “S.A.R.A.H., I just tried to send you a PM, and got back a very strange response from someone who makes it sound like you’re dead. I’m assuming you’re not dead, correct?”
S.A.R.A.H.: “Montelac, I responded to you. My name is Ron. She’s not here anymore man. I’m sorry. I am just reading her private journal entries. And I got brought here again. Are all the videos like this?”
Montelac: “Ronnie? Her husband Ronnie? What do you mean that she’s not there anymore?”
S.A.R.A.H.: “Yeah, Savannah was my wife. She died in a house fire Oct. 11th.I have been reading her journals, and she talks about this site a lot. I just came to check it out again. Did she have a lot of friends here? If I had known, I would have informed earlier. I apologize. Was just trying to put some things together from her journal and it led me here. Thanksgiving was a day of remembrance for us here at the home. I chose to remember her. Anyways, yeah, she’s gone, and this site is spookin’ me out!”
Montelac: “Oh God, no, Ron. I’m speechless. Yes, she had friends here. I know about you, Hawaii, the home in California, the baby — oh God, how is the baby? — her agoraphobia, everything you did for her, how she loved you! I was so proud of her, and how she overcame her agoraphobia, and the work she went on to do in California. Now I feel sick. What happened?”
S.A.R.A.H: “Savannah was taken benadryls to sleep during her morning sickness. She had lit some candels and one fell over. Then, it was over. I lost her and the new baby. But, I got our other son and our adopted son out. I got to go. I didn’t expect to get caught up to a whole bunch of people. But I will come back to check here if you want some more info. Take care folks.”
Montelac: “Oh God, that is horrible. Her and the baby? I don’t know what to say… She was also so excited about being pregnant again. I’m so sorry, Ron. We will miss her greatly.”
Cloud_ax: “ SARAH’s last forum post was on oct 16 fyi.
S.A.R.A.H: “Yeah, I screwed up the date. Nov 11th. It’s been a long month. Montelac, saw your email. But I gotta go, for real this time. Screaming 2 year old. Thanks for your positive thoughts all.”
Throughout these comments, many individuals posted their condolences for S.A.R.A.H’s passing, but some skepticism exists.
fantasma “REGARDING S.A.R.A.H:
... if it causes anybody any grief I am very sorry, but it must be said: I believe that this might be an attempt at an ARG. I suggest that we don’t jump to conclusions just yet. To verify my suspicions :
ex: S.A.R.A.H said: “Montelac, I responded to you. My name is Ron. She’s not here anymore man. I’m sorry. I am just reading her private journal entries. And I got brought here again. Are all the videos like this?”
explanation : “are all the videos like this?” why would he ask about the videos…….and…….before that he said
ex: S.A.R.A.H. said: “Oh my Gosh. Oh my gosh. The rash, I have seen it before.”
ex: S.A.R.A.H. said: “Butterflies, babies with birthmarks, new church leadership…it makes sense now”
montelac: “fantasma — I would LOVE to believe that to be true. But I know several things that unfortunately make this very real. I knew her husband’s name was Ron. I knew she was pregnant, and hence the morning sickness makes sense. Ron told me in a PM the one mystery SARAH would never answer — what S.A.R.A.H. actually stood for. And now everyone knows that the “S” was for Savannah, something she would NEVER reveal. She was unmoveable on revealing her real name, even to those of us that got to know her very well privately.
No, I’m sorry to say that this tragic news must be real. Not everything here is a game.”
~At this point of the night, it is yet unknown whether the passing of a respected and well known and liked LG15 community member is a hoax, or a tragic fact. Members are still debating this fact, and it would be best that we all wait for more information on the subject before making judgements. If this is a tragic truth, our prayers are with the family and their loss and we wish you the best. But if this is a hoax, we would wish that such subjects be carried out in a more responsible manner where other members feelings are not caught up in-between.

and we ask that we all respect eachother in this very tragic and confusing time for the community.
