Hey guys, so I know you are all probably going to hate me forever for this, but I really don't have the time to continue this story… at least not right now. I hope you'll understand. I do have a life, an actual, really and unnaturally busy life for someone who is 18. Just to give you a vague idea: I have 4 hours of homework every night, and I am the lead in the school musical right now and am attending rehearsals 13 hours a week. On top of that, I am in a dance showcase that also requires a lot of commitment, and I am currently smack-dab in the middle of the college process- I have a gazillion auditions coming up that will decide whether or not I get IN to college… And I also think I am in love for the first time…

I'm sorry. I should've realized that if I didn't have the time to commit to this, then I shouldn't have started it and promised a multi-chapter fic with "weekly updates". But the disappointment and anticipation will end after this: I am marking this story as "complete" for now because I just can't do it. There will be no more updates for probably a long time (hah, nothing new I suppose)… at least not until it's summer and I have graduated. You should know that I will continue this story eventually- I am still completely and totally emotionally invested in TAANG and Avatar: The Last Airbender. I think it is a brilliant series, and nothing will ever change my opinion of it.

Also, I find that my writing is best when I go through a reading phase.. You know, like when you just have all this time on your hands so you just read book after book after book? Well, as you probably would've guessed, I don't have the time to read for pleasure at all right now, and therefore my writing has been "off". I realize that it's never been superb, but it hasn't really been up to my usual standards either lately (remember how I said with the last chapter that I had to re-write it several times? …Yeah you should've seen the first draft..). I am sorry that I have been disappointing lately and, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your constructive criticism! :) When I finally do get up to updating this story again, I hope that it will be a chapter that fulfills all of the expectations that you might have for both my writing and my story.

Ta-ta for now.

Love, Mal
