THE FIRST 32 EDITED CHAPTERS ARE UP NOW...MORE TO FOLLOW SOON...

THIS IS A TEMPORARY CHAPTER, BECAUSE I HAD TO SPEAK TO MY FRIENDS AND FANS

Dear friends,

I am still alive, and so is this story.

Before I continue with the storyline, I have to take the time to thank you all for following this story for so long. There are no words that can express my gratitude for your dedicated loyalty. I can't believe it's been almost five years since I started this project and you have been with me every mile of the trip. For that I am eternally thankful.

And I owe you all a great apology. I am even ashamed of showing my face again after so long, but I can't let all of you my friends, fans, and acquaintances with and unfinished project. There is no excuse to have abandoned the project for almost two years, but please…still hear me out.

Almost two years ago, my father got diagnosed with cancer, and though I tried my hardest to keep up writing, neither my mind nor my heart was in it anymore. The priority was to get my father out of danger, and I took up the decision to stop writing altogether. It was hard to find any inspiration inside hospitals, cancer treatment units and home when my father needed full attention. You all deserved a better story, and I deserved some time to spend with my dad. Sorry for those I let down by the decision.

A year and a half since the diagnosis, my father is back on his feet and just celebrated his 81st birthday with a new look in life and remission. Just when everything started looking good for me, and I thought I was ready for a comeback, life slaps me hard once more when I lost, quickly and unexpectedly, my two dogs by the end of last year. I don't have a family and they were like my children so the blow was devastating. My broken heart had to stay away from the writing scene a little longer. Now I think it has healed and I am ready to return and finish what I started so long ago, with you the fans as my solely inspiration to return to these pages.

Unfortunately, as it happens with a long hiatus… two years have been a long time and beside the multiple outlines for the story, I had to re-read the whole online story to bring back the original spark. While reviewing the chapters, I saw tons of new possibilities that deserved to be explored, other passages that needed to be omitted because they didn't add to the story and some obvious grammatical blunders. It is for this reason that I decided to re-edit all chapters of the story before going on with the action.

BUT PLEASE…DO NOT WORRY. THE STORY HAS NOT CHANGED AT ALL.

Hopefully the re-edited chapters will make much more sense and will be a lot more entertaining to read while adding some unity to the whole concept (which has been based in 5 totally different outlines since its inception), but the story is basically the same…about 98.5% of what you have already read there is still there.

And for those that were expecting a Joker X Batman story in less than 20 chapters, sorry, but I had a story to tell. This IS STILL A LOVE STORY, a re-encounter of missing feelings and rediscovery of new ones, between two individuals that life keeps throwing at each other. How can you just love you worst enemy over night? Things like this take time, and will require more than just words. The plot is just part of the fun. Please be patient as I promise new twists and hopefully and entertaining story.

I don't want to drag anymore, but had to spread the news that the first twenty seven chapters have been finished and will be posted this week, with hopefully the other ones ready to upload by sometime next week. After that, new chapters will be posted in a regular basis (once I talk to my old beta to have her join me this last long mile till the end of the story….let's have our fingers crossed.)

Hope to continue hearing from you, as I offer you a piece of my imagination, along with my best efforts for your entertaining.
