Update: 6/23/2017 @Sometime after midnight
Hello there boys and girls... and you other people who happen to check others' profiles, been awhile hasn't it?
I know I came back from a hiatus, at the time of me uploading pronouncing that I was indeed back, only to disappear once again; and for that I would apologize, though that seems to be a common theme from me doesn't it? So instead I'll just y'know, leave it up to y'all.
As for those who're curious as to why I've been gone, uhh... don't really have an answer, well, at least one that's justifiable, but take it as you will.
Well, to start off, I just finished my semester of college and now am in my 'summer break'. With that I have had the pleasure of... planning out my future I guess is the easiest way to put it. Y'know, like paying for tuition, classes, books, etc. Also those who read my previous 'excuses', would know of my caring, a bit too much, friends; and with 'summer break' now in full force I was uh... Not really 'dragged' per se, but more like forcefully persuaded onto some 'expeditions'. But hey, at least I got to experience the grand ole 'City that never sleeps', you got it: The famous New York. The city of course, some people forget that it's also a state. Honestly that place reeks of piss and garbage but that's most metropolitan areas. Still had a great time though, nothing better than sharing a single apartment with 3 boys and 3 girls. Jesus what a disaster that was.
Uh... yeah, so there's that. Friend life has kept me busy, work life has kept me busy. I could go into my love life, but I'm sure most of you can guess the ups and downs of those, am i right, hahahah... yeah, its pretty tiresome.
So with that I... haven't really lost inspiration per se, nor am I in a 'writer's block', but I just... I dunno, lack the energy to really keep up on my muse and the nonsense he floods my mind with. Also in accordance to 'misfits' and regarding the whole 'woe is me' outlook that whole story, not to mention my overall tone in those A/N's, I was going through a... I wouldn't really call it 'depression' as that seems a bit extreme, but I did lack a lot of energy and overall 'willingness' to get up in the morning and go on with my, rather mundane at the time, life. I guess my friends noticed that, hence the trip to NYC.
Huh, maybe they aren't so bad after all.(lol)
Anyways enough of me and on to the more important, and more than likely, the reason you guys are here: my stories.
I haven't officially abandoned any of them yet, but I have thought about just calling it quits, cause I'm just way too busy, but... I dunno, I think I can finish Divulging Memories pretty easily, Rendition has a lot more follows than I originally thought and is a lot more well written than I remembered, so I started a draft on chapter 3, but its been so long that it was really... out of place and pretty bad. Princes is still fresh in my mind, that thing is like my child, it's just so hard to sort all the things out that I want to do, like I LITERALLY planned a route for almost every heroine, or at least, an outline of it i.e: at least one date, how/who asks who out, and a general background of the character. Again, I fucked up by emphasizing Yukinoshita way too much, hell even Haruno too. But, I haven't given up on the story quite yet. Misfits was mainly written off of feeling, so that one isn't too hard but I'd have to be in that whole 'woe is me' state again.
Anyways, I appreciate if you've read all the way up 'til this point and want to sincerely thank you for all the interest you have given me. Truly, some these reviews are just... heartwarming, the feeling of knowing that someone else has enjoyed my rather inane ideas as much as I do really makes me happy, as... my real life friends don't really share the same sentiment, haha. Seriously, I love you all.
If it wasn't clear, which it probably wasn't, I will try my hardest to push out some more content, hell that's why I'm sitting at my laptop right now in the dead of night. But my updates will be very sporadic, even more so than before. Also when I say 'boys and girls' its just a general term for my audience, a.k.a those who've been with me since the beginning lol. 'Other people' refer to the newer viewers or those that aren't accustomed to my passive voice.

Alright guys, big update is in the works, this is not an actual chapter, so sorry about that.
As you may or may not know, I hit a big roadblock with chapter 6. Chapter 6 was re-written and the main focus, conflict, plot-device, whatever-the-hell-you-wanna-call-it, was scrapped; and with that, the previous chapters that acted as a buildup were... either rendered useless or the main points were unfulfilled and seem rather awkward or just completely fucking out of left field. So in that regard I apologize.
Also I want to give a thanks to guest, who even though reviewed the first chapter I assume was meant for the whole story. I appreciate your blunt honesty and the block analogy really helped me out. I took your advice and will be re-writing the backing of Haruno and Hikigaya, making it... not as dramatic and not much, if any, bad blood between them. (Get it? Bad blood? Ahahaha... Kill myself.)
With that note, 'The Past Comes to Haunt' is being re-written(more like revised as most of the chapters are going to remain intact), and the originals are going to be removed; yes chapter 4, 5, and 6 will be removed from my story. These chapters will be compressed into one as the next update and, if everything goes according to plan, be uploaded as chapter 4.
There will be a few changes, but most chapters are going to remain intact; so you can skip chapter 4(new) when it does get uploaded, and for those who do want to read the new parts I will try to bold all the new parts, although I am surely going to miss some of the scenes I added or the revisions to pre-existing scenes. I will unbold them after chapter 5(new) has been posted.
A few examples going through my head that I'm thinking of changing, or have already, are:Chapter 4: Hikigaya's reminiscing of the past with his walk with Haruno, the brief flashback when they arrive at the gate, Yuigahama's scene has been extended to characterize her more, Yukinoshita's scene has been revised to set off the heavy romantic undertone it had. [finished] Chapter 5: Isshiki's appearance, Ill probably just delay her introduction to another chapter. [not started] Chapter 6: Dream, obviously, holy shit did I fuck up there. The dark undertone it had will be removed and the dreams will be focusing on the humor aspect of it, kind of like how it started off with Shiromeguri and Yukinoshita, Scene when Kaori comments about Haruno; more importantly their whole falling out is being revised as well as Hikigaya's reason for changing schools, hell maybe I'll redo the whole damn scene or just exclude it to another chapter. [under revision]
Those are a few scenes you can watch out for, obviously not all of them, just a few that are done or I have in mind; there may, or may not, be more.
It has come to me as an epiphany when I remembered what this fic was. A CRACK FIC. Trying to justify and connect the plot-holes is like trying to trying to wrap your head around infinity, it's just completely irrational. So in that regard I, once again, apologize and will be focusing on the humor aspect of it, while even though I won't go completely balls-to-the-walls with the plot and inane bullshit this cast will get into, I'll make sure to not stress too much about it.
So that is what is in the works at the moment, as the story will be going under a small revision and will enter a small hiatus. Updates will also probably be a bit slower as the future chapters I've written are going to get scrapped just to make my life easier.
Thank you all who read chapter 6, and still continue to follow this story, you guys are honestly the best. Thank you to all those who reviewed, I appreciate your commitment, support, and most of all, the honest feedback. Ironically, chapter 6 had the most traffic out of all my chapters, so I at least know people are still following this story, though I do expect it to decline, haha.
On a side not I may start a new fic, one that focuses more on drama(or romance) cause... I dunno I been feeling pretty dramatic(or romantic) lately I guess. *laughs nervously*
This chapter will be taken down as well once Chapter 4(new) has been uploaded.
TL;DR:Chapter 4, 5, 6 = Removed, they will be compressed into one revised chapter. New scenes will be bolded. Temporary story Hiatus; future chapters have been scrapped. Special thank you less than-3(heart, as apparently I can't use symbols... aids.) Possible new fic.
