Hello, ModernDayBard here!

I will be taking an extended hiatus from here, unless inspiration for a one-shot strikes. It may. It has in the past. I don’t intend to leave forever, as I do have other fic ideas rattling around in my skull still, but it will likely be a long, long time. (Except for my annual Christmas stories, and some one-shot ideas that won't leave me alone: thank you, Infinity War.)

Thank you so much for everyone who as followed any of my stories, and put up with some less-than-stellar writing up front. The response to all my stories has been incredible, and so far beyond anything I could’ve hoped for when I came to this site.

Hopefully, I’ll see you around!—MDB
