Aaaand once again I am reduced to breaking ff's rules to make a little announcement. As usual I sincerely apologize for this and hope you're not to pissed that this aint a real chapter.

Okay here's the deal chaps, I am currently in my 3rd year of University and this translates to me having virtually no time to write (or posses a social life for that matter). Now this DOES NOT MEAN THAT I AM GIVING UP ON MY STORIES! I have (at least at this moment in time) every intent of finishing them. However it does seem very unfair to you all to keep taking so damn long between updates. For this reason I am going to put 'The Taming of the Sand' on a TEMPORARY hold. This will allow me to focus my attention on finishing my other fic 'Seduced by a Demon'. I'm sorry that this is the fic to suffer (and please trust that I am mentally kicking myself as this is the more popular of the two) but it makes the most sense to do things this way as SBD is nearing completion as has been running longer.

HOPEFULLY finishing SBD wont take too long (or I am miraculously granted more time) and I will be able to come back to TTS soon (on the upside, when I do come back, updates will be quicker as I wont be splitting my time between the 2 fics anymore). I don't blame anyone who loses interest in this fic during my absence, but I sincerely hope you will all sympathise with my position and those who like the story enough, will be willing to wait for that update. I'm sorry if this decision upsets anyone, but I didn't feel it was fair to string everyone along and only update every few months.


P.S I'd like to point out that when I am back this note will be deleted and the next chapter will be posted as chapter 11

P.P.S I want to take the time to promote one of my favourite authors on ff - Ginkashoku. All of her stories are fabulous, but in particular 'To Be Labeled' a humourus fic full of crack pairings. Its one of my all time favourites, but its not getting the love it deserves. So check it out, you wont regret it, I promise!
