This is an Author's Note, as stated in the chapter title above. I apologize for the annoyance.
I normally loathe it when I click on an update link and an author has simply posted a note (which I'm aware is technically not allowed on this site, by the way, but I can't think of another way to make sure everyone who cares hears this news). So feel free to leave a nasty review or something, just know that I probably won't read/respond. (:
I am putting Friendship & Betrayal on hiatus. I don't think many people will be too broken up about it so I don't really have any qualms about doing this. Truth is, I just don't have the time or inspiration anymore. I almost took it down, to be honest, but I decided to leave it up for sentimentality's sake. However, it is now removed from my update list on my profile and will not be updated in the foreseeable future. I have also listed it as "complete" due to this new development even though it is not in any way, shape or form finished, so don't let that confuse you.
I do want to briefly thank and apologize to all my reviewers:
Yoda is beast (there is a review reply for you on my profile)
It almost breaks my heart to abandon this story at last, since it's the first real attempt I ever made at fanfiction. But I have to face reality. =/
Sorry if I've disappointed anyone (though I seriously doubt I have), but I simply have too many other obligations to fulfill and no concrete plan for this story to keep me going. I might return to it someday, but until then, I bid you farewell.
