Normally I would be totally against posting an author's note as an update (there's nothing worse than expecting a new chapter only to see that its not), but I'm going to do it anyway---if it's that big of a violation then I'll reap the consequences.

First off, I must say that to this day I am still pleasantly shocked with the number people who still are following up on Keitaro: The Hater of Women. It's been over a year since I last updated and I still receive favorites, alerts, reviews and emails of people asking me when I'll update again.

My answer to this unfortunately is that I won't be updating this story anymore. To be honest, I outgrew (maybe that's a poor word choice but it's the best way I can think to describe it) Love Hina quite some time ago. I won't go into detail as to the why and how. I still hold the series dear to my heart, and credit it as the series that initially sparked within me the inspiration to write. The characters were, and still are, very appealing, and I loved fleshing them out in my own way as well as taking a romantic comedy story in a darker direction.

I apologize to my readers, especially since I repeatedly promised that I would finish it one day, but in reality I don't see that happening---and I don't want to offer the false hope that later on down the road I might finish it, because I really have given it a lot of thought, and this is not a decision I reached lightly.

Thank you again to those who read and enjoyed this story, it would have ended much sooner had it not been for your support.

For anyone who is interested in how the rest of the plot unfolded, I did make an outline for the remaining chapters and it's available upon request.

If there are any remaining questions and concerns, please feel free to ask. :)

Thanks again for reading!
