Hey guys. Oh dear MiM, I'm so sorry I'm taking so long. I just wanted to reassure you that yes, I am continuing the fic. No, I will not abandon this. Yes, consider this a temporary hiatus. By temporary, I mean really tiny. I'm going to try to get a chapter up this Friday, but that is highly unlikely. I've got AP exams (only one per week, thank goodness) from now until the 22nd. However, I only need to cram for two since Music Theory is pretty easy for me.

You should expect an update next Friday where there will be Bunny/Jack bromance, possibly a cameo from Elijah and Ji Gong, and a somewhat dirty joke from camp (because this story needs the awkward comic relief DESPERATELY).

Since this is just an A/N, I'm going to put out my warning now (I'll repeat it again when I replace this with the real chapter): this is the point of no return. After the next two chapters (this one and the next one), the fluff fest is going to nosedive into some of the most depressing paragraphs you've ever read. The ending, which will be somewhat optimistic, will provide you with more of a happy outlook than a solid happy finale. If you are a pessimist, this story will be a tragedy. If you're an optimist, you get that glimmer of hope for the future.

If you've had a hard time handling the story, your tale ends at Chapter 7. I won't be offended if anyone decides to stop reading because this is an intense story. In fact, it's my most emotionally taxing fanfic. I've never written one where people cry every chapter. So, if you've cried every chapter and have had your heart broken five times, then stop after Chapter 7.

Thank you for all of the reviews, favorites, and follows. This story is turning out to be one of my most successful and most well-written fanfic of all time. Considering it's me, that's not too hard to beat. So thank you so much for all of the support and tears, I thrive off of them. Also, thank you lovely guests for dropping a review (even if it's nothing more than "UPDATE!"). I'm sorry I can't reply to every one of your reviews (would take up way too much space), but please know that I sincerely appreciate everything you have to say.

I know I've talked to a few of you about this, but I feel like I owe this to every reader. Ready for your epiphany?

You can figure out what really happened between Tooth, Jack, and Pitch.

I've left breadcrumbs throughout the five chapters. They're small and seemingly in there for no purpose/could be considered throw away comments, but they play a huge role. Some of you have figured it out and some of you have no clue. I won't confirm/deny any claims right now (Jamie's death, Jack's abandonment, Pitch's role, etc.), just know that you can piece together the whole story: right here, right now.

Well, that's all I've got. I could go on and explain why I disappeared off the face of the earth for all of April, but that's a story for another day. Thank you so much and I'm so sorry for taking this long. Just hang in there for one more week and, I promise, you will get your fluffy bromance time.

Good night everybody. May the Guardians be with you. ;)
