So yeah, hello all!

I know it's been almost a year to the day that I last updated this story; Drumming The Spirit Out Of The Storm. I feel really bad about the long wait, so I can only apologise. But it did occur to me, while thinking of where the story is headed and all that I still need to write, that my inspiration for this fic is almost well and truly gone. Don't get me wrong, there were some really great parts that I was looking forward to bombarding your retinas with, but the filler chapters and everything else that is needed for the story to work properly far outweigh the clever jokes and surprising twists and whatnot. I also began to wonder if anyone would actually miss this story if I just gave up and deleted it.

So, to save both you and I peace of mind and months of slow waiting-patiently-for-an-update torture, this is what I am doing.

Review to let me know if you think I should in fact carry on with this story or not. This was initially going to be the first in a series, which I will simply break down into individuals if this one fails.

If it turns out that no-one would miss this fic, then I shall carry on with the others in the series, albeit without the links that I had previously planned, and probably at an even slower pace.

Also, bear in mind, that if you do indeed want DTSOOTS to continue, that it will probably not be updated for another few months in the least, while I get my inspiration back and sort it all out.

So, your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to leave me a review (or a PM) and let me know what you think.

The closing date for this shall be December 31st, 2011, to give you enough time to let me know. If there is not enough interest, I shall delete the story on January 1st, 2012.

I hope no-one's too annoyed with my decision, but if you are I can only apologise.
