A/N: Alright, alright. I have some explaining to do. First off, sorry to anyone who thought this was a new chapter! :'( I'm not trying to lead you on. But, I want to let you know, a new chapter(s) will be up sometime in the next couple months.

Part of the reason I've been away so long: I'm a university student working towards dual bachelor's degrees and triple majors at the University of Pittsburgh. And on top of that, I work, I participate in religious activities, I have dozens of shows I'm trying to keep up with, I'm finding more and more new novels/series to read, and I'm trying to write my OWN novels in my (limited) spare time.

I'm sorry to say it, but keeping up with my fanfiction has had to be put on the back burner. But I haven't forgotten about Kel&Dom, and I haven't forgotten about all of you. Oddly enough, though I rarely get the chance to pen new chapters for this, I never go more than a few days without thinking of/adding to the general outline I have planned for this fic.

I think I've made all the necessary apologies, so here's one final bit of business. In the interest of returning to this fic as soon as possible, I need to make some serious headway in my personal writing. I think I've got a good thing going with my most current novel project. But I need feedback and opinions. So, I'm thinking of doing a few polls over the next few weeks. These polls will be designed mainly to help choose information for character backgrounds and names. Submit a review to Chapter 6/AN of this fic if you'd be interested in participating in these polls. Remember, the sooner I make significant progress on my novels, the sooner I return to A Time of Peace (and I already have chunks of the next few chapters written).

Once again, I'd like to apologize for the delay...Please bear with me!
