Author's Note: Hey guys, I don't normally like posting these A/N's, because I know they're frowned upon, but I will remove it and post an actual chapter at some point. However, the main point of this A/N is because I'm beginning to get PMs and even reviews, asking when I'll post again. The answer is… I don't know. I've been going through a lot of crap lately, and it's really affecting me. I also received a review the other day, and even though I already knew it, seeing that others have realized it as well, it made me take a step back. The thing is, my fics just aren't as… enthusiastic as they once were. I used to love writing fics for One Piece, but ever since I started working on this book series with Ara, my love for writing the fics has dwindled.

Unfortunately, I just don't write as well if I don't love it as much. I have to absolutely love it. The review pointed out that my latest fics have been… lacking or they seem rushed, and they're right. I've even noticed this, myself. I've just been kind of hurrying to get them out. I'm going to take a bit of a break for me to sort out what I'm going through. I don't know for how long. I guess it just depends. I don't want the quality of my work to go down, and as it is, I feel as if I've already ruined my current fics. I think I just need to take a break and a step back. Sorry that now you have to wait. :( I do apologize, but I really need this. I will get back to them as soon as I think I can.
