This one is just an author's note; come next update (whenever that might be), I'll replace it for the chapter itself.

I'm sorry it took so long for me to say it, but I told myself over and over again that I'd go back and keep writing "Nine Worlds". But the truth is that I won't, not for a long time, at least.

So here it is officially: NINE WORLDS is going on HIATUS. One day, I will come back. One day.

While I am happy to give permission for continuation of Nine Worlds, me saying that isn't permission. You'll have to PM me for that.

This is why I am putting the story on hiatus:

I do not have time. I am a casual writer, and despite my fairly small reading base, I pressure myself to write it for your enjoyment. The stress of this usually leads to sloppy writing, and then I scrap it, only to try again a few days later. I have school, I am planning on asking a girl out (although I haven't gotten the guts to do it yet). As disappointing as it may be, Nine Worlds isn't the most important thing in my life right now, and I need to prioritize.

That being said, you might see the occasional one-shot from me. The glorious thing about one-shots is that they're SHORT; they don't need to be perfect, you can experiment with weird and wacky writing styles, and once you've done them, YOU'RE DONE. You don't feel any need to keep going. So yes, one-shots are a possibility. If I feel the need to write, I'll write a one-shot. As of now, I don't have any ideas for any, but that can change at any moment, so be on the lookout for them.

So anyway, I hope you understand why I'm throwing caution to the wind and lending my story to the FanFiction world. I'll see ya whenever I end up doing something...
