A/N: First off I just want to say how much I appreciate the reviews and the story alerts. You guys are the best. As for my absence, let's just say that RL has kicked my ass and spit me out. I've spent a long time computer-less and then internet-less for so long it was almost scary to get sucked back into it. Having been away that long hasn't been great on my muse, but there are some ideas floating around in here somewhere. Unfortunately, as I decided to try to pick this story up again, I have reread it and found it to be lacking on the inspiration. So I'm sorry to say that Blood Magic will be no more for an unforeseeable amount of time. I am not taking it down, because I know how fickle fate can be. It will stay up, just in case something strikes me, but I won't be adding to it anytime soon.

Thank you all again for the support and I hope to see you soon.
