I've been trying to come up with anything except posting a new chapter to tell people this since I hate thinking there's another chapter up and being disappointed but I couldn't figure out another way.

I'm going to be taking Detachment down next week.

To all of you have been reading from the beginning – I'm sure this isn't news. All the same, I apologize to my readers. It was your reviews that convinced me that I really have to post this as a courtesy for those of you who have been following this fic.

I started Detachment in high school after marathoning Supernatural Season 1 and part of 2 to get caught up. I thought I had a brilliant idea for a story and that I could run with it.

It's now three years later (and three years since my last update) and I don't think it's fair to continue to leave the story up.

I really did like the idea I had and I may someday revisit it. Be warned, if I do come back to Detachment I will most likely completely rewrite what I have so far. My writing style has changed and (I would hope) improved, I now have a different; more complete idea of the characters and their histories and cannon has given me so much more to work with. Just reading the story now makes me shudder!

So, thank you dear readers for sticking with me, I'm sorry I couldn't tough it out.

Hopefully I'll be able to keep writing this year and I hope you enjoy my future stories.

Thanks for all your kind words and encouragement,

Special thanks to all those who have stuck with the story – especially happycabbage75.

You guys have been awesome,
