I suppose that I should begin by apologizing. I know that there are many of you who enjoyed this story greatly, and that is why I feel that it is only fair to tell you the truth.

I have lost my muse for this story.

To be honest, the finale was never particularly well-planned in the first place. But in the rush of college (and a powerful obsession with Kuroshitsuji), my motivation for completing this story has slackened to the point where I do not believe it is in anyone's best interest to continue. I apologize sincerely for leaving it cliffhangered as it is, but the climax is the most important part of a story. I do not want to just write to finish, because if the resolution is no good, the story itself becomes worthless.

At the risk of sounding melodramatic, I made a vow a few years ago that I would never leave a story unfinished. I still have my notes, and if my muse returns I may come back to this. But as I said above, I feel like it's better to leave it on hiatus, incomplete, than to force the ending and ruin it.

Thank you, to everyone who has read and left reviews, and I again apologize. Hopefully this will one day be complete.

Forever and always,
