If you have read Scythe of the Heartless right up to its latest chapter (Genderbender and Author's Note) you should know that I am at a complete loss on how to continue the fic.

What? You might say incredulousy. Come on, Ebony, don't kid me. You don't have freaking to redo everything; just add more chapters and make it work!

...not that easy.

For now, let's say the story is a scarf.

I held it out at arm's length... to see all the holes in the plot.

The pattern's too complicated, the colors aren't right, it wasn't what I had envisioned in mind before I started off on it.

It makes me want to throw said scarf into the fire and myself at a wall.

So I'm going to do what I think is the way out of this: I'm going to unravel everything, pull it apart, and start over again.

Scythe of the Heartless v2.0

But it won't be the same, I warn. I'm going to take some materials out of it, and it won't be as bad-azzeline as before. It'll focus more on L and Scythe, less Klutzy and Herbert action... a simple story.

I don't think I'm qualified to handle a big story plot as of yet. :(

However, I'll still keep the original SotH on the site because it means a lot to me, and I love all the generous reviews I received. You can run between the two stories to compare them, but remember that this is NOT a slightly tweaked version. It's quite different. Quite.

And I've changed their names slightly for this story because of reasons.
