I am sorry to keep you waiting for a new chapter for so very long. And I am also sorry that this is only an author's note, not a chapter. If I falsely got your hopes up, I apologize. I do intend to finish this story eventually. Lately I have been dealing with quite a lot in my personal life. Additionally I am working two jobs and trying to manage some semblance of normalcy. At the moment I just don't have the emotional and physical strength to continue on with a progressive story. I do intend to continue writing (because in some ways it is the only consistency in my life), but I cannot commit to any large undertakings like the three stories I am currently engaged in. I will do my best to upload one-shots and other short pieces, but I cannot make any promises. I ask that you bear with me and have patience as I sort through this frustrating time in my life. Thank you for your continued support. Until next time, goodnight.
