First, I would like to apologize for my lack of updates to this story. Life, as they say, got in the way. I lost the spark, and probably the plot, somewhere along the way, and I never found it again. I feel horrible for this, as most of you loved this story, and I know what it's like to be in your shoes. It's a devastating feeling to not know where a story ends up, and for that, I am so, so sorry.
Now, onto the reason for posting this in the first place. I have officially abandoned this story...but it does not have to end here. If any of you lovely people are also authors, and want to take this from me, you can go to the link below. Someone has started a fanfiction adoption page, and I've given them the rights to take this story and run with it. If anyone decides to take this, I'll link to their fic within this one, so everyone can have a chance at finding out where the story is going!
Thank you for your kind words, comments, and encouragement. I wish I could have finished this for you, but the muse has left the building and got hit by a bus. I don't think she's coming back. I hope someone takes the bait, and takes this to places that I never managed to take it to.
If you travel to Tumblr, and look up the user justadram, or use the tag asoiaf-fic-adoption, you can find where to volunteer to take over this story, or where to read it once it is taken over.
