Dear Fanfiction,

It wasn't our fault, you know.

We were perfectly harmless, but when you're genetically engineered to kill, well, it gets a little hard to control your impulses. But we tried our best, you know! Went to Serial Killers Anonymous and everything, did yoga and tai chi and focussed on our zen, but it didn't work.

The tracker jackers even started being vegetarian, can you believe it?

But alas, sometimes you just can't fight your natural instincts. It's especially hard to quit killing cold turkey, you know? But we tried. We really did.

Sincerely, Mutations.

P.S. There aren't exactly nicotine patches for this sort of thing!

I'm sorry it's been so long, but I am finally back to tackle those last few chapters! Enjoy!
