WARNING: Please PM me to communicate rather than reviewing this chapter! One of my problem solutions involves not taking this story down, but heavily editing the first two chapters, and continuing it. Thank you for your cooperation.
Future plans for this fic: 9th April 2014
I apologize for once again not keeping my word. *Ducks tomatoes* I'm sorry for that. I have several good reasons for not updating or even leaving any info here. However, I'm offering no excuses. Thank you for the overwhelming support you have all shown me.
First the good news. I'm rewriting the story. I doubt I have many fans left after disappearing for so long and not letting you guys know anything. I hope some of you are still interested. I may post a new story, or re-post under this one. I'm still not sure about that. I am rewriting though.
I've seen far too many fics get abandoned, and I don't intend for mine to be counted among that number. I've failed many times to do right by this story, but I'm not going to stop trying. I'm not giving you any deadlines for when I'm going to be ready. Instead, I ask humbly that you guys give my story a chance when I rewrite and post it.
Thank you for your patience. I hope to update soon.
Future plans for this fic: 4th April 2013
I apologize for not posting when promised, but I assure you that it wasn't for lack of trying. Unfortunately, fanfiction hasn't been letting me update my chapter for over a week. I believe it was due to a browser problem on my end, and I think I've fixed it finally! I hope that this update finally gets through!
I've recovered a good chunk of my enthusiasm for my story, and feel like I should continue writing it. I plan to work on the story a bit more to decide if it should be rebooted or continued from this point on without making a new submission. I hope to finish that process in the next two weeks, but given that this is the last month of the spring semester for grad school, I might not be able to work on it until the end of the month. I'll make sure that you hear from me no later than the end of this month about my decision. I shall post the rebooted fic (if I decide that) within a week of the update letting you know of my decision. On the other hand, I will be able to post sooner, if I decide not to reboot and just continue.
Thank you all for your support and your kind words. I'll do my best to post soon.
P.S.: This document hasn't been beta read, since I decided to post it at once instead of wasting my beta-readers time. My beta-reader is already aware of my intentions as well. Do let me know of any errors you spot in this document! I alone am responsible for any and all errors in this "chapter".
P.P.S.: I'm using the chapter update system to put up notices. So you'll see any further info as "Chapter 5."
NOTE: Site guidelines state that the chapter system should not be used as a placeholder for non-story content such as author notes! Having no good way to send out a notification, I decided to use this method anyway. I will leave this notice up until I take the story down! Please bear with me.
