Dear Readers,

First of all, I would like to apologize for the very long hiatus. My health had not been very cooperative these past few years. I know it's not an excuse for leaving without warning but my hospital trips had been notoriously unpredictable and trying to survive had been an upscale battle – it still is.

Many of you have sent me emails, pms, and reviews through the years. They went unanswered for a really, really long time and yet a lot of you had been persistent, continuously sending me messages every now and then – reminding me, asking me, and just telling me about how my stories have made an impact. I've received angry messages, too. Some of you feel robbed of time and again, I apologize. It was not my intention to leave you all hanging. For all of those, I apologize profusely. And I would like to say thank you. Thank you for taking time and telling me how you felt, for loving my stories, for being angry over the sudden stop and the long wait, for hoping, for staying… for everything.

Like all of you, I wanted to be there until the end of the Intruder Alert series – to know what will become of the characters we've followed through various installments. It's been years, true. I've literally died at one point and came back only to have to go through another ICU experience again. But I've kept on living somehow and perhaps this is one of the reasons, for me to continue, for us to have closure. Yes, I intend to continue if only to give back to those of you who tirelessly waited and supported my stories.

I will be going back to the hospital tomorrow but I have crammed and printed some of the stories so that I can re-acquaint myself with them and hopefully find the rhythm for each of the story. I will start with the Intruder Alert series as it has the most requests (and angry demands). I am not promising a next-week sort of update. I am just answering everyone's question – I will continue.

On a side note, someone had informed me that the Intruder Alert series is being plagiarized. Thank you for the information. I hope someone can help me report the plagiarism. I checked out the link but it seemed the person had changed the story's title. If someone has any idea on it, please report it. Thank you in advance.

Again, I'm terribly sorry for the long delay. I hope you can all find it in your hearts to understand my situation and to forgive me for it. Thank you for the messages and thank you for the unwavering support. Wish me luck. And as always, messages and questions are welcome. I've tried to answer to every single one yesterday but some of the emails are no longer working. And for those who have not gotten a reply, I'm so sorry. It must be the email. Again, messages and questions are always welcome. Keep them coming.

Take care always ~ Frostmourne (031913)
