Author's Note & Update:
Hi, everyone! So you may or may not have noticed that I have changed the title for this story. This is because I realized how long the original story is going to be, so I've decided not to start it with the very beginning (as this first chapter is), and just have two separate stories. This one will be more focused on the characters' background stories, while the other will follow the intended plot. I will still continue this story, although it will probably be a while before I come back to it. Hope this won't confuse anyone! Meanwhile, I will be uploading the original story's (now) prologue/first chapter very soon; go check it out!
