Dear readers,

To be honest, I am not sure how I should write this. I would not be writing this in the first place if Amethyst hadn't asked me to. I don't understand how half of this works, except for what my daughter's explained to me. So here's my attempt at fulfilling her wish.

For the past few months, Amethyst had been becoming weaker. She was admitted in to the hospital, despite her own objections. Last week, she died to Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Before I left the hospital, when collecting her things, a nurse handed me a note from my daughter. She left me a list of things to do in case she died.

She wanted me to inform her readers, who gave her joy, that she was sorry. She wanted me to let them know that she would not be able to finish the story. She wanted me to say 'thank you'. And last, she wanted me to post her 'just-in-case' message.

Thank you to all of you, for brightening my child's days. You have no idea how much it means to me.



So, hey. I guess this means I finally kicked the bucket. It feels kind of weird thinking that, if my mom follows through and posts this, by the time you guys are reading this I'll be dead. Haha, I'm going to try and keep from being all melodramatic on y'all, because I know it'd annoy the hell out of me if I had to read something like that.

It seems that I won't be able to finish the story like I had hoped. What a pity. I absolutely hate it when stories just end half way through the tale. Drives me insane. So for that, I apologize. However, I feel like I owe it to you all to let you know what happened to me, so that you guys don't worry or anything, and that this'll never be finished. You have no idea how hard I tried to finish this. Any time I was strong enough, whenever I had the time to write, I was working my fingers to the bone trying to get the chapters done. And instead of chapters, you're going to get some lame note from a dead chick. Feel free to laugh, guys, I don't want this to be all serious.

So then I'm off to be just another star in the universe. For every smile you all put on my face, I plan on shinning brighter than the last. As Dumbledore says, I'm finally starting on my next adventure. I hope that there are people just as awesome as you guys in it. Keep on living, guys, you're all amazing.


(Or, you know, you can call me Amethyst. That works, too.)
