So. Here we are, five years later. (Yes, this unfinished story is still bugging me.)

I think it's time to admit that I don't have an ending for this story. I've devoted considerable thought to it, and I can't think of a good way for Gazer-Beam to die that leaves him alone in a cave with a password carved into a wall, in a place that he has no reason to believe anyone will ever find. If he'd had any influence on the main cast of The Incredibles other than going missing and then being discovered (purely by accident) in a forgotten cave with the magic password, things would be different, but unfortunately I don't have a lot to work with here. In retrospect, I should have had a more complete plan before I started this story, but if I'd done that I probably wouldn't have posted the first chapter.

So my apologies to you, my wonderful readers, for leading you on. Sad to say, Gazer-Beam's story doesn't have a good ending. Fortunately for us all, lots of other stories do, and it's my hope that every one of yours will fall into that category.

My sincere thanks for all the views and reviews you all gave this story. Perhaps with the ghost of this story laid to rest, more ideas will come in the future. Peace be with you all.
