It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to cancel Massages.

This is not a snap-decision that I have made. I have spent several months debating on this, and debating why I was debating this, and now I have an answer to both. In this story, Jaune was a self-insert, as many people have probably guessed. I started Massages during a very rocky period in my life, I felt alone and unimportant, so I gave Jaune what I wanted. Attention. I gave him adoration and the desires of several girls because I had no one, because I felt like no one wanted to accept me. This is why the first chapters of Massages came out so quickly, because I was so enraptured by this premise that I couldn't stop thinking about it. But now, I don't want what I gave him anymore. Now I have friends, people who accept me for who I am and what to be around me simply because I am me. I don't want mindless love anymore, I have people who love me and I love back. I can not write this story anymore because the driving force behind it has faded away.

Believe me, I wish I could finish Massages, I sincerely do, but I can't force myself to write a story that has lost it's meaning to me. The chapters would no longer be in the spirit of Massages.

The past year has been a roller coaster for me. I went from someone who wrote a handful of RWBY one-shots to the most favorited and followed RWBY author on the website, and I have no one but you guys to thank for that. Now others top those charts, and that's okay. Thank you to those who stuck with me through my long hiatuses, and thank you to those that provided criticism. Without you, I would not improve.

I am not done with RWBY. I still plan on writing Pheromone Dust, but it will have story, meaning, actual characterization, the things that Massages should have had, but didn't. I have several other stories planned, some for different fandoms, others for RWBY. Writing is my greatest passion in life and I have no desire to stop anytime soon. However, I understand that some may want to unfollow me for canceling something I promised I would finish over and over again. I will not be offended by this, nor am I asking you to stick around with me. If that is what you want to do, than who am I to say no, especially seeing as I owe all of you so much for sticking around.

I will see you later, with wherever I end up and whatever I write.

Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, and as always,
