I thoroughly apologize for making this an author's note. Heaven knows how much it irks me when authors post these things instead of actual updates, but I've got a few things to say and this is the only thing I could think of. First of all, if you're reading this I assume you actually want more to read. Some of the best reviews I've ever gotten during this writing "career" of mine have been on this story, and I just wanted to take the time to thank everybody who has followed, favorited, etc. so far. I really appreciate all the kind words you all have said, and cannot stress how important your feedback is to me. It really makes me want to write more, just to hear your opinions.

As stated before, on the one-shot I just posted, my KND muse is slowly returning to me, and I'm hoping it stays for good. (Cross more than just your fingers!) Therefore, I will be working on finishing the stuff I have left behind, before I start any other lengthy stories, especially if my muse is only around for a short period of time. I will probably be posting some short stories/ficlets, but I promise I will make much progress in this story before I get ahead of myself. As usual, it is difficult for me to carry on where I have left off, and frankly, believe I can do a much better job this time around. There are some things I'd like to change. So, my plan is to sort of reboot the entire Op FADING series and start from the beginning. I will be replacing the chapters as quickly as I can, then will continue from there. I hope you all can understand why I'm doing this. :)

Anyway, sorry again for posting an author's note. I feel hypocritical already.
