This isn't something that's easy to dress up and make it look nice, so I'll be blunt. I won't be updating this fic anymore.

Before you despair, you should know that there's a good chance that I will (eventually) start this story from scratch. Odds are that the updates will be infrequent at best, like so many other fics that are out there, but there should at least be something.

I'd like to thank each and every one of you for reading this far, but if you have than that probably means that you're more satisfied with my work than I am.

When I first started writing for this site, I was an amateur at best, and whenever I read my old works I'm reminded of that. I'd like to think that I've made some progress since then, and I'd also like to think that you guys deserve better. Maybe I'm exaggerating my improvements over the years, but I'll let you be the judge of that when I re-release my crossover. I'll also leave this fic up since it's a reminder of where I began and does hold a certain sentimental value to me, so you don't have to worry about it going anywhere.

I've always valued your opinions, and once again I'd like to ask you to leave a review and tell me what you think about this. Most of the feedback I've received so far has been positive, and as much as I appreciate that I'd really like to hear some constructive criticism so I can improve my writing the next time around. I'm also thinking about changing a few things up, so feel free to leave some suggestions about something you might like to see in this fic's reincarnation. I can't promise that I'll use your idea, but I will read and consider every review that's posted.

I think I've said everything I wanted to say, so I won't waste anymore of your time.

I wish you all Happy Holidays as well as a Happy Birthday to a certain Bleach character today. (I'll give you three guesses and a trip to the Bleach Wiki to figure out who it is.)

Thanks again, it's been fun.
