The first thing I have to tell you is that this isn't an update and that this story is officially going unfinished.

As some of you will be aware, Nox was very unwell, it was in the authors note of the last chapter. Those of you who follow me on Tumblr or read The Family Business might be aware that Sabrina (Nox) died last Autumn, which was when I officially put this story on hiatus. Mark of Gabriel was Sabrina's baby, and she in fact approached me with the whole idea of doing a story together, which I instantly liked.

However, she was also the driving force behind this story and without her I don't see myself finishing it. I don't know what direction she would have wanted this story to take and I don't feel that I can finish this without her input. I think this story deserves better than my individual mark, which would take it a remarkably different direction than what she probably would have wanted.

So I'd like to apologise, not only to those of you who thought this was an update and were looking forward to the story coming off hiatus, but also to Sabrina, because I'm leaving something she enjoyed writing, unfinished. I'll be leaving the story up because her work deserves to be left where others can see it.

On a slightly more positive note, I have my own Hermione/Gabriel story in the works. It won't be up for a while, because it'll be quite long, with a variety of characters in it. It will not be a reworking of Mark of Gabriel.

Thank you for your time,
