I'm doubting this will come as much of a surprise considering my long absence, but I think it's past time for me to take my leave from the Twilight fandom. I lost my drive for it a long time ago, but I held off until now on actually making a decision to that end hoping I'd just hit a funk and would come out of it at least long enough to finish this story. I'd hoped that seeing Breaking Dawn would ignite enough of a spark for me to be able to do that. When that didn't happen, I thought maybe I'd be able to find the mental energy during my time off for the holidays to wrap things up. Obviously there was no such luck.

I'm truly sorry to have left you all hanging for so long, and even sorrier that this is what you get for waiting. You deserved better than that. But I'd genuinely hoped to be able to complete this story and I didn't want to say anything one way or the other until I was sure. But as I'm sure all of you writers know, if there's no interest and no muse, there are no words to be found no matter how hard you fight for them. And when recreation has become a source of stress instead of joy, it's time to let it go and move on.

I genuinely do appreciate each one of you and your sweet support throughout my time here. I spent more than two years writing fan fiction and I don't regret a minute of it. It was a great growing opportunity for me in many ways and it opened doors for some very sweet friendships that I still treasure greatly.

I've been playing around with one final chapter to at least give some closure here, but it's been in the works for months and in all honesty, I don't know if it'll ever come to fruition. I'm not ruling it out, but at the same time, I don't want anyone to keep waiting for it.

I'm not deleting anything at this point, but I will make a note in the summary that this story is incomplete so that any future readers will know that going in.

As always, you can find me on Twitter as (a)AnEnduringHope should you wish to stay in touch. Again, thank you so very much to all of you who made my time in this fandom such a fun and gratifying experience.

Much love,

Nik
