When an author creates a new chapter just for author notes, you know they're probably important. This is the first time I've ever actually done this, but I think some stuffs needed to be said. :)

NOTE 1: I have reworked Chapter 20 due to some quite accurate feedback that the chapter did not capture the significance of Tails's death correctly. Once I reread it and tried to look at it from a readers' perspective, I did realize that it was… missing something. If you have already read it, I'd suggest going back to read the changed parts (the additions to the chapter are quite obvious; scroll down until you see material you haven't seen before… it's right after the scene at Angel Island). If you want to say anything about Chapter 20 but have already reviewed, you can either come to this page to submit another one or just PM me.

NOTE 2: I'm not oblivious to the fact that response to this chapter has been mixed. I'm aware that there are some of you who have very little motivation to read the sequel to this since Tails is gone. However, I would like to ask that you PLEASE give it until the very END of Chapter 2 in the sequel (once it's up) and THEN decide if you think it's worth it to continue reading. I think I'll have it up in a few weeks, though it may be a little longer since I want to get ahead on it before I begin posting it.

At least give the plot of The Dark Side of the Moon a CHANCE to show itself first; you just might find you'll actually want to keep reading. Thanks, and I really hope to see you guys again. *looks at readers hopefully*

As always, thank you so very much for reading, and an extra thank you to those of you who reviewed and told me what you thought… and a third thank you to those of you who have helped me out to become a decent writer. Oh, oh, and one last thanks to those of you who've been here since the start of the series. You know who you are. ;)
