UPDATE:

*Is busy having a stress-induced heart attack* Holy-hell, I don't have time for even this much right now! Sorry guys, a thousand times sorry, but I won't be able to make the deadline for this next chapter and it isn't going to be nearly as long as I'd originally wanted because I cannot find the time to bloody correct the one I originally wrote! (I have no idea when I'll be able to get it up.)

January through May/March are usually the busiest (like, freakishly busy. I'm not trying to blow you guys off or be lazy, I am attending two separate schools right now and that's not even half of it) months of the year for me so, as upsetting as it is, I'll likely be unable to find the time to upload again for awhile. Obviously I don't write well when I'm stressed or busy and I only want to give you guys the best I've got. I won't be able to upload here for awhile, I think. Just a few months.

Yes, I will come back. No, I'm not abandoning the story.

For those of you who are interested and want to get extra information or updates on chapters, you can visit my account on tumblr. There, I may post the bummer chapter that I am refusing to post here. Occasionally, I'll post tiny story snippets there too, really small things no longer than 100 or 30 words each. I'll also be taking requests/suggestions there as well.

As I've stated I am VERY low on time so I won't be there 24/7. I'm using it only a small amount and still need to work on the design of my page, but people may also use this account to catch up with me, complain at me for taking so long, or ask me more specific questions. It's a more personal account, though, so I don't have only Ao No Exorcist stuff on there.

If you're interested here is the link: [oh, well, fuck you too, fanfiction]

I'll put a link on my homepage as well for those who don't like dealing with the spaces.

Thanks for putting up with me, everyone, I hate to be a disappointment but this is how it goes.


UPDATE 2:

[Do any of you get so tired that you feel like crying?]

I have a fun story about one of the upcoming chapters that I'll post here eventually.

Maybe. [Synopsis: I got in trouble with the campus security for digging on site. ...it's Yukio's fault, I swear.]

*I'd like it if people who are following me on tumblr could send me a prompt or two in my ask box so I can write a 30 word short-story about it- that would be a really nice way to warm myself up. I'm a bit stuck, to be honest. ^ ^; Just one word is all I need, you don't have to do anything else if you don't want to, I'm just saying it would be helpful. [My tumblr username is that same as my fanfiction username; Fairytale Warrior. The blog's name is The Book Thief.] *yawns hugely* oh but of course no one is going to do that because we're all lazy bums, aren't weeee?

**There's also a big chance that after I finish up with this arc, I'm going to have to close this story down. I need to make more money so I won't be home at all next summer and since I'm not getting any donations at all I can't really dedicate a lot of time on this anymore. *shrugs* We'll all just have to wait and see, I guess.

Well, just thought I'd pop in to let you all know that I'm finally working on the next chapter!

See you soon! [Maybe, sorta, kinda, -ish?]

Cheers!


30-Word-Prompts

Alymorlyx- Prompt: The Grudge

A low gurgle bubbled out her throat, hand clutching his pant leg.

"Um," Rin began uncertainly.

"Nii-san!" Yukio's voice blurted over the phone, "do something!"

"I almost feel sorry for it, though…"

"Nii-san."

XXXX

blackbloodedgirl- Prompt: Memories

The glee-filled sound of children laughing.

The bubbles floating past his ears.

The taste of salt and pepper.

The water in his lungs.

The ball rolling in the chapel.

"NII-SAN!"

Prompt 2: Breakdown

He was gone.

He was gone.

Yukio's eyes were wide and glassy.

How could that be possible?

How?!

Brown hair stuck out in every direction.

Nose red, tears dripping-

Gone.

XXXX

Kudaikage- Prompt: Playground [a little over 30 words.]

Creak.

They didn't know he knew.

He wondered what would happen when they did.

Groan.

Likely, he'd be thrown out.

"Nii-san?"

Rin blew coal tar out of his face and stood from the swing, "coming!"

I can see them too.

Prompt 2: Snow

Peals of laughter billowed into the night air.

"Rawr!"

"Aaah, Nii-san's the monster!"

6-year-old innocence falling into drifts.

Snow crunching beneath them as they raced.

A fwoosh.

"Rin, that's cheating!"
