I know this isn't the update you were expecting, but I owe you all SOME explanation.
Here's how my past 14 months have gone:
-Found out my little sister is a cutter and has attempted suicide three times
-Went off to college where unprecedented stress and lack of a support system led to my own long-hidden depression escalating to TWO suicide scares.
-Got fired from my first ever job after three days, severely affecting my confidence in life.
-Found out a close friend had cancer only when she went into a coma and was touch-and-go.
Suffice to say my year sucked.
Since I doubted any of you would have appreciated any of the emoness that would have been spawned by my brain, I have kept silent.
However, now I'm on antidepressants and seeing a therapist, so once I have all my shit together, I'll announce my return to the land of the creative with a, wait for it, TRIPLE UPDATE!
Sorry for being a hot mess with long, drawn-out periods of block. Hope you can forgive me.
P.S. To all those who keep saying I got Haki wrong… I started before the Impel Down Arc was even finished by the manga. If it's that much of an issue, I'll go back and edit the first 7 chapters when I start writing again.
