I just logged back into this account today (after an entire decade had passed). Firstly, I want to apologize for abandoning this story many moons ago. I had just gotten into college and was busy being a bit of a drama queen. I abandoned my writer self (horrible, I know). On top of that, the email address linked to this account died and I stopped getting updates.
I have now gotten back into writing (it was always in me, I was just running away from it). I moved away from fanfiction and started creating stories of my own. If you want to know more about that, you can check me out at .com. You can also contact me there.
But this message isn't about me, it's about everyone who messaged and reviewed. It means a lot to me that you took the time to make those comments. I was having a low moment (even now, being an author is still more a dream than a reality), and I was beginning to question if I was even a good writer at all. Reading all the reviews and comments about a story I wrote 10 years ago gave me a tremendous confidence boost, and the impact of that can't be measured in words.
Thank you all so much for following me on . I would never have become who I am without writing these stories 10 years ago. If there are any of you out there questioning if you should try your luck at becoming a writer one day, please make a go of it. I wasted a great deal of time trying to become something I didn't want to be, and only recently did I realize the simple truth that I should do what makes me happy.

P.S. My works on are considered part of the public domain. Translate, adapt, borrow from it as much as you'd like (though I'd appreciate it if you could credit me).
P.P.S. I actually still work 40 hrs/week + over time on top of trying to write the sequel to my first novella, so my fanfiction days are officially over.
