Sorry to all my readers, but I'm putting this story on hold for the time being. I just have too many other ideas bouncing around in my head right now to focus on this one.
Note that the story is simply on hold, NOT discontinued. I will resume it in the future, and I've got a lot more stuff planned, but right now, I need to concentrate my attention elsewhere.
Sorry for leaving off at such a bad point.
For those of you who enjoy my writing, I am starting another story. It will be Naruto-centric, just like this one but will also be very different from anything I've seen on this site before.
This notice will be replaced by the real chapter 36 when I write it.
