So, many of you have been asking for a sequel and my response has been the same. I wouldn't mind doing a sequel as I enjoy the 'verse, however, no plot ideas have come to me and I can't write without it.

Well, it's been a year since I first wrote this fic, so I thought I'd go back and re-read it. Maybe get a fresh perspective and come up with some ideas.

I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is I have not come up with a sequel idea.

The good news is that I have decided to do a prequel instead.

Reading through Here Be Monsters, I realized that I sort of dumped the readers into this new and exciting world with a new and exciting Cassie. But a lot of her background, while briefly touched upon, was not described. So I'm going to show you how I got from (boring) Cassie from the Secret Circle to awesome!Cassie from my fic (No, I'm not biased at all).

That being said, the prequel "The Making of Monsters" is now up!

Happy New Year and Enjoy!
