I wouldn't normally do this but it was suggested and I got permission for it, so here goes hopefully something.
I'm not sure how many people have noticed, but valiantt has been missing for an uncharacteristically long period of time. I've confirmed that she's been absent from AP, Skype, and IRC since 25 December at least, and she didn't turn up somewhere she was supposed to be at irl without a word of notice. To my knowledge she had some travel plans for the period, but she comes online even when she's on holiday in really rural and faraway parts of X country, and she should have returned by now anyway. A few very kind, sympathetic, and resourceful people have started doing some searching, but we haven't been able to find much so far. I've been emailing her but there hasn't been a response. What appear to be her flickr, Twitter, and reddit accounts are all empty. Robo did a search thingy that produced a bunch of results possibly linked to her, but none of them have been very fruitful. It contains her email address so I won't share it here; if you think you could work off that list, message me.
If anyone has been in contact or seen v around anywhere since the 25th, or has a good idea on how one could find her (like a functional FB account or an email address that you've used to communicate with her before), I would be eternally grateful. Suggestions are welcomed in this thread, anything more private or personal can be PM'd to me.
Thanks for reading.
