Author's Note:

*coughs* Er…yeah…Bad Shades. *looks sheepishly at all angry reviewers* M'really sorry about the lack of consistent updates. Or any updates for that matter. Really, I am.  But a lot of things have gotten in the way of them.  I'm not gonna bore you with excuses so I'll some it up in one word: Life. I hope you all know what I mean. *scuffs shoes on ground* Anyway, I'm really sorry about all this. I think I have everything settled now in my life. Hopefully.  So when I finally manage to find time from damn school, I'll type up a bunch of stories that have been floating around in my head since I've been gone.

*clears throat* Ok, now that I've given some kind of explanation, I'm going to say thank you to each and every reviewer because you all deserve it for sticking with me even though I've been extremely bad to you all. I hope you can forgive me and I hope I've lived up to your expectations in Opacre.  Thank you for taking the time to read my story and make your comments.  All of you are a world of your own to me and I thank you immensely. *hugs to every single reviewer* Love you guys.

I did it in different formats so each one of my precious reviewers could pick out their name.  Each one of you is very dear to me and if you're name isn't on there, I'm reeeeaaallly sorry but know I haven't forgotten you. You get an extra hug.  I'm sorry I can't respond to each one personally but I have a time constraint.  Know that I cherish each word you write in your reviews.  Thank you.

Once again, I am sorry for the delay.  I hope you like the rest my story.

Until the next time,
