It has indeed been a long road to get this far. And a hard one. Some moderately serious health problems stopped me from writing at all for several months after I posted the last chapter of this. Then I lost my job after six months of not getting paid (I'm taking her to court but it will be a long, long time before it's resolved), had to scramble to find another, much crappier job just to avoid getting evicted, and generally had a lot of shit going on. At the same time I'd started a cosplay commissions business, and was spending literally my every waking, non-work moment sewing to try to get costumes done.
THEN I discovered Homestuck, which is the fandom that eats all other fandoms, and it consumed my soul for a while. At least it meant I got some practice writing again before I came back to this, so I'm not as horribly rusty as I would otherwise have been.
I want to thank every single person who has posted on my story in the last year and a half. You've all been so remarkably patient and supportive. Not a single one of you ever nagged, or got angry at me; you've only given me encouragement and assured me that you're still out there, waiting and hoping. Without all of you, I would have abandoned this long ago, but I was determined not to let you all down. Thank you so much.
So, where am I at? This chapter is done, the next is about 3/4 done. I've completely revamped my story outline, tightened it up and improved the ending a LOT. It's not going to come hard and fast, but I WILL get at least one chapter out per month, probably more. I'll do my best not to let it slide again. I owe you all that much.
Because I know so many of the readers for this story are here in my LJ, I will continue posting the chapters for this story here. Nothing else is getting posted here, and when this is done I'll be abandoning LJ completely, though I won't remove what's already here. All of my new works are being posted at Archive of Our Own
, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. Feel free to hop over there to follow this story as well!ETA: oh my god the new format for LJ is awful, this is the first time I've posted something and looked at it since it changed. And also I lost all my icons since I don't want a paid account anymore and can't use the one I made for this story T_TTL;DR - let the story continue!
