AN: Hello everyone. It's been a while.
I know a lot of you haven't heard from any of my stories since August, when I started college. I have dedicated my time towards academic success and professional advancement. When I wasn't doing that, I was sleeping or relaxing with the many friends I have.
However, that does not completely explain my disappearance. Another reason is that I grew dissatisfied, apathetic and disgusted towards the majority of my writing to date.
I have recently read Worm, a web serial written by the amazing Wildbow. After reading the serial and the multitudes of fanfiction written in the universe, at seeing what truly talented people can do, it's caused me to be heavily critical over my writing and reevaluate where I am currently going.
When I look upon For Thy Mantle, I see an amazing idea whose execution was completely botched. Tco99123, who recently reviewed and finally got me off my ass to actually act on what I have been thinking, was right on so many points. I didn't think the story through, completely railroaded the plot and just in general wrote something bad.
When I look upon Altomare Ace, I see a much better story that suffered from the same problems. I used a stupid idea that completely invalidates much of the characters of the main cast. It was a lot cleaner than FTM, but it could definitely use some work.
After looking back, the Lord of Revenge is the only story I'm still satisfied with even with its problems. Therefore, I proclaim the following as Word of God.
For Thy Mantle Reloaded is abandoned, pending a massive revitalization and re-planning. I know I invested a lot of time into it, but it's in such horrible condition that it has forced my hand.
Altomare Ace will undergo a rewrite, effective immediately.
The Lord of Revenge will remain active and the next chapter will be worked on, effective immediately.
A new story, based solely in the Wormverse, will enter the planning phase once the above two stories are updated.
All other stories are put on hold until further notice.
I apologize if anyone was looking forward to the next chapters of the after-mentioned stories. I need to regain my footing in regards to my writing.
If anyone wishes to know what would have happened in FTM, please PM me and I will tell you.
Thank you and I hope everyone stays with me. I'm not done yet.
