I've been trying to figure out how to say this for a bit now, but I'm tired of putting it off again and again so I'm going to just say it.

I'm going on an indefinite hiatus. Not only with this story but with writing Harry Potter fanfiction in general.

I'm really, really, really sorry but there's just no inspiration left in me. I've tried to sit down and write and I've even reread my own story in hopes of claiming that inspiration again, but to no avail.

On top of that, being a senior in high school is 100x harder than I thought. Work-wise, things have been fine. Despite being in advanced courses, being a lazy bum means that I do minimal amounts of work. However, I'm trying to get a job as well as fulfill my school's 40 hour volunteer requirement, AND run a school club successfully, AND worry and piss over colleges and applications. Not only that, but other fandoms (well, one other fandom in particular) have sucked me and all of my friends into a bottomless pit, so Harry Potter inspiration is just absent everywhere. It's really a lost cause.

I'm sorry for the long-winded explanation, but I felt like you all deserved to know my reasons.

You guys have been the best readers a girl could ask for. Most of the comments were useful and helped me improve upon my writing technique, and I can't thank you all enough for supporting me.

I'm not saying that I'll never write for this fandom/this story again, but it's a slim chance, and the last thing I want to do is get all of your hopes up for no reason.

This might be the last time you'll ever hear from me, but thanks again for all your support. I never thought that when I posted my story it would be this well-received, and it only makes leaving it behind harder.
