An Interlude, Of Sorts (Bold bananza)

First, I would like to say how much I appreciate all of those who click in to my story and have stuck with it up until now. You know that room in your house that you know is there, but you can't actually find it? Well, now you can find it. A buffet shall be waiting. Or a bookstore. Or whatever you desire at the moment you step through that frame.

Heh. But in all seriousness, I really am happy. Thank you, those who want to continue reading and post your thoughts onto the reviews board. But just saying, please, Please, PLEASE tell me how I can improve something, be it a chapter, the language, or my writing style in general. I am always eager to improve. Just you wait.

I don't usually reply to my reviews, and I just realized that I should. I guess I am slow that way. Hmmm… Where to begin? (I believe my non-answering started here. If I have already replied… Kampai for forgetfulness then. Also, if you don't read this anymore, well then… Eto.. You still get a thank you. :D)

1. just anie6142-Glad you liked the shoe size thing! And thanks for the input :D

2. Kayla Edogawa-Thanks for the input :D (I am unorigional. Gomen) Thank you for the compliments! I wasn't sure if my case made much sense, and it wasn't thought out very well (like all my writing) so thank you for pointing it out to me and bringing my attention towards the nonsensical chapter. :D:D:D
3. Kirazu Haruka-Arigatou gozaimasu! I'm glad you find it funny.

4. SoftcoreOtaku-Yay! Happy customer! The 20,000 yen fee of happiness is needed though. Thank you for helping me out with the currency and the spell check. :D

5. Idiot Number 42-I hope I can supply some good chapters in the future! (Though it is almost over. Time flies, plans thrown, writers promises copying plans and time.) Thank you for taking the time to read my A/N and answer my plead for help. :D And I will try to update. Finals and projects are looming like those depressed buildings I talked about in chapter 1.

6. zach keenan-That sounds like it would be really interesting and funny. If you are reading this, perhaps you can message me one day with the story name.

7. Cheshire XIII-Yay! Glad to know that I helped make you come out with another chapter. Sucks about the whole mailbox-crash though. -_-' Though funny. I guess I laugh at weird things too. Or am I just an average human? Anyway, glad you hate the cliffhanger. :D Perhaps you can message me about what confused you so I can try to fix something or explain it to you. Or if it doesn't really matter, then I will go fish. A pun. Hate fishing. And guessing random spellings. Thank you for that. And please don't go Akako on me. :P

8. Mysteryfan17-Aah, I think that version sounds familiar. Thank you for that. I wonder what you were going to say. XD I won't pry. :D And that sucks. I hope she isn't too much younger than you. Also, I am feeling like going to Hawaii, actually, and learning how to drive a boat, fly a plane, shoot a gun, etc, etc. Or maybe I will teach them? It's like the tootsie pop in that way I guess. And Conan's skill with the phone is scary. Maybe I will take your advice. ;)

Okay, now that that is all done, I will end this interlude. With a sneak peak, I guess. Though it's like... The last sentence. Or sentences. Whatever. Don't worry, you get the patented disclaimer too.

(P.S., Feel free to comment or message me. The green button isn't moving to Antarctica with my inbox, don't you worry.)

Disclaimer: Since I didn't write one last time, one may assume that I now own Detective Conan and Magic Kaito. This is not the case.

A[hopefully cliffhanger-y] line from the next chapter: 'My Luck has died in a hole somewhere'…..

(I am serious about the name. Completely. Utterly. Like a cow of some sort. Ramble alert. Drumroll and a symbol, please? Don't forget the gasps of shock and titters of excitement.)

Why is it, Conan mused somewhat despairingly, that life is like a sporadically ticking time bomb?
