Thank you all for the birthday wishes!
I know most of you don't read my Author's Notes, but this one pertains to future updates. On another note, my mother was just released from hospital after a major operation, so I've been running around being a nurse inbetween my own work and haven't had much spare time at all. As such, I haven't seen the latest episode of Merlin - episode... 10 I think? I don't even know anymore. I heard it's quite good. So I felt bad for not updating, so here is an update. This update is also to let you all know that future updates may be a tad more sporadic because of my new, hectic schedule (even more so than before!). Everyone get psyched for The Hobbit in the States. The London premiere was today I believe? Or yesterday? Don't quote me on that one ;)
/edit: sorry! I posted the previous chapter as this one by mistake. It's fixed now, or should be very shortly.
