Artist Lilly Higgs created this lovely GIF celebrating both Leia Organa and Carrie Fisher. She writes: “I ran home and drew this on my lunchbreak because I felt like my world would explode if I didn’t.

Update: The L.A. Times reports that Fisher is in critical condition at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Just prior to arrival, a pilot told the control tower that passengers who were nurses were attending to another “unresponsive” passenger.”
“So they’re working on her right now,” the pilot said in a public recording of the conversation on liveatc.net.
According to the LAX Police Department, officers responded to Terminal 7 around 12:15 p.m., for a call of a female passenger in cardiac arrest. On arrival, they found paramedics performing CPR on the victim, according to Officer Alicia Hernandez.
Update 2: Fisher's brother tells the AP she in stable condition.
