Final Authors Note:

Just like in "The Empire Strikes Back", we end the story on a tremendous downer. But at least this means one thing: Part III is on her way. I recommend putting me on an authoralert, since I don't know when I'm going to start it yet. Probably sooner than later, I think and hope.

That took a while. Sorry to everyone that was waiting on the rest of the story while I was on my hiatus. Life got hectic and blah-de-blah-blah. Seriously though, it took a little over a year to write this; I started the night of last Super Bowl. That's a tremendously long time, so thanks to everyone who stuck it out.

As always, huge shout-outs to my crack-team of reviewers and spell-checkers: jazzpha, MatsuMama, and F1yMordecai. They were fantastic to bounce ideas around and their criticisms and encouragements helped me enormously. (F1yMordecai did some boss-ass fanart as well, go check it out on the deviantart.)

And of course, any and all of you wonderful people out there that have been reading. Every review, even during that heat wave I had, was awesome to get. Your kind words became fuel for my fingers and my eyes and my brain. This was for you.
