To my readers:

Hi everyone. It's been a loooong time. Like, three years? I know it's nothing new when writers on this cite seem to drop off from the face of the planet. And I can't tell you how many times I've gone back and thought about updating this story. But as I'm sure we all know; life gets in the way. But this isn't about me making excuses for never updating this story. The fact that I occasionally still receive reviews, alerts, and praises from you guys makes me feel very humble. And I truly, sincerely appreciate the support you guys have given me. Thank you. I mean it.

Now, this isn't a message saying I'm throwing in the towel—this is a message asking for some advice. To tell you guys the truth, I've often thought about this story, my OC's, and… everything about it. This story has always had a place in my heart, even though I moved on to other things in my life. You guys should know where I'm coming from. We're all writers here, right? Anyhow, I don't want to completely "forget" about this story, since it means a lot to me. Here's what I'm planning on doing right now:

I want to rewrite this entire story, "Shadowed Past." Like I said, I truly appreciate the support from you guys… but this story was written four-ish years ago. And I'm in college now, I have a different style in writing; and if anything, my writing has improved greatly. It's true I get nostalgic looking back in this story, but something else comes to mind… something like, "OH. MY. GOD. THIS FANFIC SUCKS!" I have a lot of new ideas I'd like to do about this story, regarding the plot line, especially. And maybe tweaking my OC's a little bit, regarding that fact that they coincidently got "Chaos Powers."

Sooooo… yeah! That's all I got to say!

ALSO: It's been a long time since I've been on this cite and I know I need to re-read the terms and conditions for story submissions and such. IF THIS POST SOMEHOW VIOLATES ANY OF THOSE CONDITIONS/TERMS, I APOLOGIZE PROFUSLEY AND WILL REMOVE THIS POST ON YOUR SAY-SO.

FINALLY, if you guys are still interested in "Shadowed Past" coming back from the dead, I'll take any advice/critiques that you've got! I've got a lot of ideas already, so bring it on!

I'll see you guys in the near future! Look out for me!
