Hey guyssssss-

Before anyone gets excited, this isn't a further chapter or update or sequel or anything. I am posting this on all my current stuff just to let everyone whose on author alert or story alert or anything know that I'm not going to be updating for at least 2 weeks, possibly 3. This is not because I don't love you – I really, REALLY do :) – but because, in the immortal words of Cliff Richard, 'We're all going on a summer holiday, no more working for a week or two...'

I'm as annoyed as anybody about it, but I just wanted to let you all know that I am not not NOT abandoning , or NCIS, or anyone, just that my father would really like to make me struggle across some moors in the south-west of England for two weeks (think Lorna Doone x the Hound of the Baskervilles and you've got it exactly).

Anyway. Yes. I'm sorry if anyone got their hopes up for a new chapter or something, particularly for A Quiet Defiance, but don't worry, I have over three weeks in August in which to ignore all my homework and friends and family and spend hours updating :) Yayyyyy, if I do say so myself.
