Dear Reader –

I'd like to extend my most sincere apologies to anyone who clicked on this expecting a new chapter. This is kind of mean, I know, but I hate having loose ends and think that you deserve an explanation for my lack of writing since you have taken the time to visit and/or review my story. This is the least I can do (though there this is a bit narcissism on my end thinking someone is reading this).

It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that I regret to inform you (oh, how I love a cliche!) that the muse for this story has gone missing. Poof. Disappeared. Gone. Buh-bye. And as you can see by the date stamp on my previous update, she left me quite a while ago. I've been hoping that she would come back, but alas, no dice. Tonight, I realized that she's probably never coming back. Ever. But I can't seem to be able to bring myself to delete this story like it never happened. So, I will leave the status of this story as "on hiatus indefinitely" until then. (You never know, muses come back… don't they...?)

However, there is a tiny bit of a silver lining to this. Las Vegas may be canceled, but Danny McCoy and Mary Connell will always hold a special place in my writer's heart and head. Though this story may never be finished, oddly enough, a new muse has been whispering ideas to me. Nothing is concrete story wise just yet, but I'm working on it, tossing ideas around back and forth. Whatever this story is if it ever comes to fruition, will most likely be alternate universe featuring the entire cast and will, of course, be Danny/Mary-centric.

I'd like to give my most heartfelt thank you to anyone and everyone who has ever read, reviewed, put on their story alert and/or put on their favorites list this story. You flatter and humble me and I hope to have a new story for you to read soon.
