The Universe Weeps

“When a spark goes online, there is great joy. When one is extinguished, the universe weeps.” – Rhinox

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I must post this news: earlier tonight I learned Larry DiTillio has passed away.

I don’t have the words to describe how I feel. Mr. DiTillio worked on a lot of things that influenced me as a child. But by far the most influential came during my adult years.

That was Beast Wars.

I was in my twenties when the Beast era began but I wasn’t a fan. I was under the influence of my then significant other, who claimed that those weren’t “real Transformers”.

Then, we broke up and I started to watch. That show helped me get through some of my darkest times.

I can’t say it in person so I’ll say it here: thank you, Mr. DiTillio. For everything.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
