Author has written 15 stories for Twilight.

I really have no idea what I'm doing. I've lurked on this sight for years, too shy to comment, and now I have the gall to try to write a story.

So, I had so much fun posting my first story, I thought I'd try again.

I have loved the response to what I have offered here. I read every review with glee. I can't promise to always reply but I do appreciate receiving them. But for however much I love to get them, I don't want anyone to feel obligated to give them. You don't owe me reviews, you don't owe me a review for every chapter or every story I write. I offer up a story and expect nothing in return.

But I will make a promise. Barring unforeseen calamities, I will stick to a posting schedule and I will finish my story.

Thank you.
