OMG Update!

So I don't even know if anyone's still reading this, or keeping an eye out... but hi, if you are!

Life is crazy. A lot's gone on. I left school due to illness, this year has been... a mess. But I did NaNoWriMo and although I didn't finish I did finally realize the most important part of writing a story is the writing bit.

There are reasons, most of them complicated and personal, I haven't come back and finished this thing. The height of my Angel fandom, and thus my Wesley/Fred/Illyria obsession, was tied up in a really painful time in my life, and it's taken a while to get past that. When I revived things before I hadn't really gotten "over" it all. Now, I have, and I can look at this and not have connections to painful stupid things.

I showed the link to a friend today as an example of my writing, and read some of the prior stuff, and felt that old thing in me... felt Illyria's voice (it's always been Illyria driving this) urging me to finish the thing.

So I'm going to attempt to write more of this. I am not making promises, yet, on how long chapters will take to come out or whether I'll finish. I want to get some of the writing done, see how long and how much I can realistically sustain. I have come to realize I should be several chapters ahead before I post a chapter, so I know where things are going and if I need to fix anything earlier.

I am debating re-writing the thing. Most of it's fine after about Chapter Four, but the first three are overly complicated and make me itch to fix them. I don't know. Maybe I will, maybe I won't.

Anyway, when there's more to say I will say it. We'll see how things go.

You're still here!
I just wanted you to know that this was one of the first fanfictions I ever read, and it's still one of my favorites. I adore it! I actually love the first couple chapters, even if they are complicated. It left me in awe of what amazing writer you were. This is obviously a very well thought out story. Don't feel pressured to finish (especially if this fandom is related to a dark part of your life), but you should know that there are people out there who love this story. If you choose to ever finish it, we will love it even more. Thank you for writing what you have. If it's all you ever write of it, it is still amazing.
