Well, as normal, I am horrible about estimation. *shocking* Please know, this story will be finished. I'm six chapters from being complete with After the Fall on my Ashbear account; after that, there will be a month hiatus or so while catch up on reading all those who supported me over the last few years... plus, a small break is always good. ;)

After that, it will come down to a matter of regrouping, refining, and reestablishing this piece. I remain hopeful that Nicole will return but, if not, choices will be made at that point. However, she will always have a say in creative control as that is how we worked together in the past. Even if she feels she cannot write, she'll be kept up-to-date on any changes and the account name will not change, no matter which direction we go. I know it’s been a long time coming and for anyone still following, thank you so much for the support whether it’s for the Ashbear, Wayward Tempest, or Ashbear and Wayward accounts, we appreciate everything.

First and foremost, thank you so much for sticking with this story through the years. We have not always been timely with posting chapters, but the story had always been part of our lives. I am often asked about updates on Somewhere in Between and as of now, I cannot give you an exact time. All I can say is: it will be done. Unfortunately, Wayward no longer believes that she can continue writing under the Wayward Tempest pen name. I understand, people move on from fandoms all the time. I wish her luck with her new endeavors. She helped make this story what it is to me and sadly, it will never be the same.

As for the future of Somewhere in Between, well, because I am going to most likely going to be finishing this by myself, I am not sure when I can get back to it. I have thought about bringing another author in, but I would estimate that the story possibly has maybe ten chapters left, so I’m not sure how productive that would be. I had promised myself that I would finish After the Fall under the Ashbear account this year and I want to stay true to that. The best I can offer as of now is that when that is completed, I will work solely on this. I may try to do updates in between. At this point, I'm very unsure due to the new circumstances. I will keep you updated on either this account or on my Ashbear one, please check for updates. Again, I am sorry about this untimely delay. I truly do not like leaving this account in virtual limbo, but I need time to regroup.

Thanks for the support throughout the years from both of us, I wish Nicole well.

"Somewhere in Between" outtakes have been posted my Live Journal if you want to read the madness.

Somewhere In Between reviews
Squall & Rinoa – What would happen if the hero were to fail? What if there wasn't a happily ever after, just an 'ever after' A minute too late; a minute that would haunt him forever. Seven years she lay frozen in time and he stayed frozen in his heart.
