Alright. This is it.
Sorry guys. I feel absolutely horrible for leaving you guys hanging for so long…
I regret to inform you all that Into the World of Detective Conan is officially discontinued.
I want to thank you all who have ever read, reviewed, followed, favorited… Everyone. I love you all and you don't know how much I appreciated everything.
Here's the part that can get a bit boring… I'm trying to explain why I chose to discontinue this. Feel free to skip over it if you don't want to listen to me.
I started this fic over a year ago with high hopes to have fun and work on my writing skills. I didn't know what to suspect.
To my surprise, I soon had two reviews. I cannot express in words how happy I was. I continued to write and update. More reviews and support as well as criticism came. And I was truly happy.
And then it happened.
Now, I really don't want to sound self-centered or anything, but… I saw that someone had posted a story similar to this one. About someone being sucked into the world of Detective Conan.
I was surprised, and a bit… Well, I don't know how to describe it. But soon, more and more of these stories began to appear.
I don't claim this idea originally as mine as I know people must have imagined this before. I'm saying that after I posted mine, tons of others appeared. I felt a little proud, but a bit sad that my idea wasn't so 'original' as before.
But I still continued to write and I read a few of them. It was pretty awesome to see all the different takes people had.
Soon I found myself with over 500 reviews. I was shocked.
Then I started to write the next part. *sigh* I had so much fun…
Not just due to the fact that there are quite a few other fics out there like this one, but as well as the fact that I have no idea what so ever on how to finish this. ^^ It's not logical at all. Especially since there are new important characters in the plot and I have used OCs. I wanted to keep the story as much like the actual plot as I could.
I don't really have anymore inspiration…
It doesn't help that I haven't talked to Julia in quite a while and we're not that close anymore.
I re-read this a while ago, and to be honest, I'm rather disappointed at how terrible it is in the beginning. I'm glad that you all liked it, but… What I'm happy is about is that I've improved my writing.
But what really kills me:
I pretty much turned myself into a Mary Sue.
Gah, I HATE Mary Sues, and well… *sigh* I apologize.
But I've managed to meet some of the greatest people in my life from writing this story. My whole life has changed so much because of them… You know who you are. *hugs*
However, I truly love each and every one of you. For supporting me through everything I've gone through. Thank you.
…Okay, I've rambled on long enough. And I made it sound over-emotional and stuck up. Damn.
But hey, if you still want to read some of my stuff, I'm still writing my other FanFiction… Once I can find a chance to update. If you want to follow me and support me in other places, I still have my fics here, I'm on YouTube and called Akakata7, I have a dA (still called Chelseaj500) and a Twitter (Also Chelseaj500). But I don't really use the Twitter.
And I've mentioned this several times, but… You should join Detective Conan World. It's the most incredible place ever. Please… Check it out! I'm known as Koizumi Akako on there~ I'm sure you can find me. ^^
Once again, thanks for everything you guys. I hope you understand. *hugs and hands out cookies* You rock!
(P.S.: As I have been dubbed as Akako at DCW and I'm a hardcore Hakako fan... I'm happy to inform you that I have found my Hakuba.)
