Well… this sucks.
I tried… but my heart's just not in this fic anymore. I'm afraid that it is going to be on permanent hiatus. I know you are all probably pissed off at me now. I honestly am sorry. I actually finished chapter 6 once. I restarted it and was almost finished with that version when I realized I would be unable to finish this fic. I feel that leaving it off after chapter 5 is best. It at least gives some sense of closure. Once again I apologize.
Who knows? Perhaps someday I'll be compelled to return to this fic. Until then… Goodbye to the Suikoden world. It was great while it lasted.
