Author's final note posted 4/1/08:
Dear A Comedy of Fates reader,
I’m very sorry to have led you on all this time just to disappoint you now in the end, but I’ve realized I cannot finish A Comedy of Fates.
I finally figured it out, you see.
The reason it’s been so difficult for me to trudge through these final chapters is because I’m no longer satisfied with how the story began in the first place. The story I want to write is just too big for the fandom.
I started out writing the story more than three years ago with no purpose, and now I’m coming to the end with a clearer purpose in mind. The story I had posted is not the story I can finish, and I know it has to change all the way back from chapter one. The limitation of this online format is that there’s little room for massive edits without losing all readership.
Therefore I’m going to do us all a favor and no longer deceive myself about the story.
Beginning today, the fanfiction A Comedy of Fates no longer exists. I am going to rewrite the whole thing as an original work, which is really what I intended it to be all along. I want to take my time going back from the beginning and reshaping the character and adventures of Haligh.
I have removed the story from this site. I just love my characters too much to continue writing the weaker version of the story.
Haligh is really the first original character I’ve grown to love inside and out. Unfortunately, Yugi and I can’t both have him and I’m ready to see Haligh grow up without the burden of a dying fandom to live up to.
It's nothing at all to do with my readers. I love the story and I love the readers, but I have to be true to the characters I created. They just don't belong in the universe of Yugioh fanfiction anymore. It's time they had a home of their own.
I’m so excited to see how Haligh is going to change with this move, and I hope you would be, too, although I understand any frustration you might have with my fickleness.
Your support and encouragement will be greatly missed. I wish you all the best in your writing and reading endeavors. It is my dearest wish that you’ll one day see this story again, in a more fully realized form.
All my love,
P.S. I'd like to keep anyone who's interested informed of the book's progress. I won't be so ambitious as to assume it'll be published one day, but if it ever exists in an online form again, I'd like to let everyone know. I put together a mailing list of those of you who had the story on your favorites, alerts or communities lists. I was only able to include those of you who allow members to view your e-mail, so if you've been left out and would like to be on the list, please drop me a line at "pynk" (underscore) "moon" (at) "hotmail" (dot) "com."
P.P.S. I wanted to leave everyone with one of my favorite quotes, something that brings me a little bit of comfort as I take this massive and frightening creative decision...
"Write a million words—the absolute best you can write, then throw it all away and bravely turn your back on what you have written. At that point, you’re ready to begin."
