Author's Note/Disclaimer: This is something I've decided to work until I can get enough experience and motivation to write my big fanfic that I promised TLSoulDude I would write. This ought to be an easier fanfic for me to write, because the characters, plot, and dialogue have already been written out for me by someone else—all I have to do here is just adapt it. For disclaimer purposes, I must say here that I own none of the "actors" who are performing this story here—they all belong to their respective owners. And in case anyone is wondering here, while I don't own the play "Much Ado About Nothing" or its characters, I'm not going to get sued here for doing this, because the works of William Shakespeare are all in the public domain. Finally, I hope that at least some of you out there enjoy this.

Before I end my introduction here, there are a few people that I would like to address here.
First of all, I would like to give my sincerest apologies to TLSoulDude and his brother DimensionDude for not uploading the first chapter of the fanfic they gave me permission to do on the past couple of weekends like I said I would. Really, guys, I AM very very sorry. But my attention span isn't as good as that of some other people due to the fact that I suffer from ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, and possibly Tourette's Syndrome as well-it makes it very hard for me to put any idea that isn't related to a college assignment down on paper, and ever harder for me to consistently keep working on that idea. Keeping all of these disorders in mind, I have decided that I am not quite ready yet to do a big, epic fanfic like the one I designed for you. I'm going to work on shorter, easier fanfics like this first and build up my experience before I start on bigger stories. This doesn't mean that I'm giving up on the "Prince of Heart" tie-in fanfic, though—I'll try to have at least the first chapter finished and posted up before the end of 2008, and I'll also try to post more chapters at a more regular basis after I'm done with fics like "Much Ado About Nothing". So in the meantime, all I'm asking is your patience—and your forgiveness. (I really AM sorry!)
At the other end of the spectrum, I have very different words to say to Laredo Tornado. A few months ago, I posted a review of his fanfic "The Seven Keybearers" asking him to update it and presenting my opinion about the increasingly adult content of his other fic "Quest For The Lost Two". In response, he sent me an angry, obscene e-mail. Well, Laredo Tornado, I have just one thing to say to you: Frankly, I've become rather disappointed in you. Your original story, "The Keyblade War", was alright for the most part, but this latest KH fic of yours has gotten much too adult and much too dark. Not only are you including characters and franchises that will most likely never make it into an actual KH game (Scrubs, Dogma, Lost and No Country For Old Men), but you're having the traditional Square Enix and Disney saying and doing things that they would normally never do under any circumstances. Furthermore, you're having incidents and mishaps happening to these characters that are not supposed to happen to them and are thus very out of character when they do. I know as a fanfic writer, one can change things if one wants to, but COME ON! You've leveled the Hundred Acre Wood and bumped off the BEAGLE BOYS! How un-Disney is THAT?! Walt Disney would be turning over in his grave if he knew what you were writing in "Quest for the Lost Two". Also, Laredo, I don't like the tone you took with me in your e-mail. I'll admit that I was unintentionally rude in asking you to update the Seven Keybearers (which is the only thing I AM apologizing for here), but that doesn't give you the right to harangue me like that, nor does it give you the right to call me a dirty name (which on principle I'm not going to repeat here). And even if my tone was unintentionally rude, my words to you were polite. I'm pretty sure that I said "please" to you, and I distinctly remember saying that it was nothing personal and that it was "just my opinion" about your fics. I was hoping that you would have taken these words into account, but it's pretty clear that you haven't. Finally, you said in your e-mail that you didn't want anybody talking bad about that jerkwad Janitor from "Scrubs." Well, last time I checked, this was still a free country guaranteeing freedom of speech. So if I want to say that I don't like somebody (especially someone as nasty as Janitor), I can, and since the Janitor isn't even a real person (but a fictional character on a TV show), I don't think he's going to sue me for libel or anything like that, and therefore you shouldn't be telling me where to get off about this. In fact, I've decided to include in the fanfic I'm writing for TLSoulDude a heavy amount of Janitor BASHING (and by bashing I mean PHYSICAL BASHING)! In short, Laredo Tornado, I'm through for the time being with being a fan of you or your fanfics. If you say you're sorry for what you said to me, and start making your stories much more decent and closer to an actual Kingdom Hearts game, I'll start giving your fics a look again. But until then I'm not even going to look at them, and if you don't like any of this, well then tough luck. And if you send me anymore angry, obscene e-mails, I'm not even going to dignify them with a response. I'm not even going to READ them, but delete them and move on.
To the others reading this, sorry that took so long. I really needed to get that off my chest. I would also like to apologize to any of you who are still Laredo Tornado fans, but as a Christian I can not approve of the increasingly adult direction he is taking his Kingdom Hearts fanfics, and as an grown-up I cannot stand by and let him speak to me in such a nasty and immoral fashion. I hope that you all understand at least this.
Here are a few more people I want to give shout-outs to:
Darius Almighty-Forgive me if this sounds rude, but are you ever going to resume work on your fic "Trials of the Keyblade"? It's a much better fic than Laredo's (at least YOU aren't including the Janitor in your story), but you haven't updated since back in June, and left your story at a major cliffhanger moment where Sora is about finally learn the truth about his father. I'm therefore asking (with all politeness and restraint) that you please start work on "Trials of the Keyblade" again. Pretty Please?!
Hikaranko-Are you going to get back to work on novelization of the first Kingdom Hearts game—the one that you said you finish "no matter what"? You last updated back in June of 2007, and you haven't resumed it since. Since some of my past messages to you actually succeeded in getting you back to writing and updating that fic, maybe this shout-out to you will do the same. (I'm hoping that it will.) No offense, though.
KingdomKey23-Sorry to find out that you're retiring from the fanfic business. If you ever decide to resume your fanfics, let us know. And if you ever change your mind about letting someone else take up writing up them, look me up—I'm available as a writer!
Babylon Sky Hawk-I'm sorry if THIS sounds rude, but if it's not too much trouble, could you maybe e-mail that free spoiler you promised me? I'd appreciate it if you could. Thanks.
Well, this is the introduction, folks. I'll try to have the prologue and first chapter up within the next two or three days if possible. Until then, G'NIGHT EVERYBODY!
