Now that If It Were Otherwise is (finally) finished, I'd like to thank some people for their contributions.
First, everyone who had stuck with reading the story beginning to end. Even if you didn't start reading when I started writing (2 years ago), if you read the whole thing, then I thank you sincerely because it's a long story, and I really hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for giving it a chance, and to everyone who dropped me a review at any point, thank you for your comments and your support.
I would like to thank three people specifically:
MustangWoman who read the first four chapters and encouraged me to publish them. I had no idea when I began that it would take 2 years to complete and be 116 chapters long, but without her encouragement, this would never have seen the light of day.
double-negative means yes for the fabulous art she's done for the story. This may seem strange, but I'm not a very visually imaginative person. I can't picture things in my head that I have no visual basis for (I have no firm idea of what most of my OCs look like), and she's taken the words and made them into images. I wish I had a even quarter of her talent, and I thank her for bringing some of those images to life for me to see.
And my beta and friend, AGirloftheSouth. She doesn't believe me when I say the story wouldn't have been finished without her, but it's true. This wasn't something I could do alone, and without someone to bounce ideas off of and to give me direction when I had none, I could never have come this far.
Thank you, everyone. This has been a hell of an adventure. I've loved (almost) every minute of it, and I hope you have too.
