FRIENDS OF RILEY
Riley and (I) were always matching. Riley would wear blue and (I) would wear pink. Our relationship always felt like we were siblings.
Ice-cream after a sleep-over. I think we watched an entire Anime that week-end. (Alex came for sleep-overs often, from the age of 7 to 14).
The photo of me is from 6th grade, one of the times I came over to help Ry with his homework. The black and white is from one of Ry’s birthdays. We spent a few hours singing songs from musicals and generally being idiots in the hot tub.
I loved how every day Riley was always proud of who they were. They were never afraid to be themselves. I will always respect them for that.
Our most memorable moments came from cosplay, Riley introduced me to the scene. Brought me to my first convention.

Roger, Sade & Riley. Photo of Rye taken by Roger at GSA. Riley and Roger met through mutual friends at school, both in the choir program and in GSA. Roger looked out for Riley, like a big brother

That picture was taken when we were Cosplaying, Riley’s asthetic was “gore-ish with like a cute bunny, ‘massacre with cuteness’.”
This was the morning of a sleepover (by morning I mean early afternoon) and we were having snacks. We’d hang out everyday outside our English teacher Mr. Koehler’s classroom after school – it was a tradition to wait out there as long as we possibly could.
“He was very important to me… we talked about Danganronpa, it was a shared obsession between us.” Shu lives in Ireland, and Kiibo and Shu communicated often, and cared very much about each other.
I met Riley during pride of 2019 (June 9th). I saw him for two seconds and we hit it off right away. We both were looking for the same thing which was out Mom’s. He had such a kind and loving soul. He knew me better then most and how to calm me down during my hardest times. He meant so much to me and always will. egg, fried egg.
