I'm sorry to say, but this story is now on hiatus indefinitely; or, to be more honest, it's dead.
I've posted reasons, explanations, and so forth in the first chapter, so go there if you need anything else. Here, I have nothing else to do but thank you all for following, reviewing, encouraging, and critiquing (although not enough of you did the last). Some day, perhaps, I'll give it another go; I'll review everything, reread what I have written, and put it back together better, clearer, and smoother.
But for now, I'll say my farewells.
