A/N: crawls out of pit I'M ALIVE!!! Again, I'm sorry for keeping you all waiting. T.T I'm a horrible person for that ( --- is admitting it so you don't come after her with pitchforks). But I've repeatedly looked back on this story and found that I love the plotline and the plotline I'd set out for it, but I can't get to point B from here, so to speak. So I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to rewrite Calming Ice with a different title and a few little tweaks in the plot. I'll leave the original up for the diehard fans. :) Thanks and sorry for any disappointment!
