Due to the adult nature of the epilogue, I will not post it on and then get in trouble. To read, please head to

(copy/paste link in your browser - AND LEAVE SPACES) and find part 18/18. You can also get to my fic site (Art of Life) from my profile page. Sorry, FFnet is so weird about hyperlinks.
Oh dear lord, is this really it? Am I done? Holy smokes! Mark the date! January 19, 2008 sees the end of this massive fic begun all the way back in August of 2003. Hell, I was still in high school when I started this sucker!
My writing style has changed significantly during the prolonged period this story was written. As such, when I've gone back to edit this at various times, the chapters have seen many a revised or snipped sentences. I'm sorry about how the accents change by the last chapters. I've changed how I think the characters speak, yet was more concerned about finishing the story than struggling over reformatting dialogue. However, all of this is to say that I do indeed want to (someday) have a fully revised version of this fic. Will's character needs some work, and I know character development wise I'd like to do a better job with him, Jack, and even Ana. The beginning feels weak to me, and I think many of you will agree.
In any case, I want to thank everyone who has spent the time to read these many chapters. I particularly am grateful to those of you who have stuck with me through the years! Ceria Taliesan, I found an e-mail from you about this story from way back in the day.
I hope you have enjoyed this tale! Please let me know what you think. I do take into consideration what my readers say, so I'd love the feedback. Best wishes! Clarity Scifiroots
P.S. I just realized as I signed my name that I'm not sure what screen name I had when I began this story! Yeesh, that makes this feel even more dated.
P.P.S. Thank you everyone for the passionate support over the years. You've really encouraged me to keep going.
