Hi guys, GlassHawk here.
Well... I know it's been a really long time since I've updated. There were a couple things in the first week or so that slowed me down—namely being on the road & the computer I use to write choosing not to function for a bit—but by now, there's no excuse for why I haven't made a new chapter. And so, I'm just gonna lay it out:
Guys, I'm sure by now you've seen Alone at Sea. And if you have... well, let's just say that pretty much destroys the idea for this story. Completely. I built it under the assumption that Lapis and Jasper would resent each other once they broke out of Malachite, and now we know that isn't the case. To say the least, it's basically removed any purpose for this story to exist, and while I get this was an AU from the beginning, I was still hoping to have at least some canon ties in there. Obviously that's impossible now.
So, just from the sound of it, am I abandoning Into Oblivion and going back on my word? No. But... for the time being, I'm putting it on hold. I'm not entirely sure when I'll pick it up again, but I promise I will sometime soon, likely when we're well removed from these new episodes.
Guys, while everything I just said up there is discouraging, it isn't the only reason I'm stopping this for now; as I've said before, right now, I just don't have any interest in writing this story. Writing is usually a joy for me, but for this story, I'm forcing it way too much, and it's really obvious. It just isn't a good thing for any of us, since it kills my interest in my hobby & results in a worse end product.
So... what now? Well, to keep it brief, I'm taking a break from writing for SU for the time being. I still love the show and making fanfic for it, but I will admit it's been refreshing to try some new stuff recently, and I'm eager to do more. As a few of you may have noticed by now, I've started an Undertale fic simply titled Who Are You, Chara?, and I absolutely love writing it. To be honest, it really shows when you compare it to here: the chapters are longer, it's more focused, and... let's just say it'll be going in an exciting direction soon. (Yeah, I'm kinda self promoting here, lol. But if you'd like to give it a read, I'd be very grateful.)
So... I guess that's it. This certainly isn't goodbye, but more of a "see you later." Make no mistake, though: I will finish this story. It'll take a little while, but we'll get there.
