It is with with much regret I must inform you that I'm going to have to put this story, as well as all my others, on hiatus. I'm sure you are disappointed with receiving this instead of another chapter, but I've got several reasons for this decision.
First of all, as you may know, I've been normally very busy with my life; only now I'm so deeply buried under work that I had to prioritize away certain things, writing fan fiction included.
Secondly... Well, when I first started this story, it was in the belief that I would at least manage 30-40 chapters without problems. I was dearly wrong. So far, I've wildly posted out chapters when I could, neither caring nor having the time for an actual plan or rough draft. I made everything up on the go. While it offered me the chance to quickly work out everything cool on the spot (like the Colossus battle), it ended up making it harder for me to plan ahead of the story, leading to the one thing I've feared the most: running out of ideas.
Which brings me to the third reason. Without any real direction to head into, and with no ideas to back it up, it lead me to lose interest in this story. I simply don't have any motivation for seeing this to an end, and motivation, along with imagination, are what I think are the most important things a writer must have if they are to create a story.
So what now? I do at least intend to write something, but I will first need to reorganize my way of planning it through and finish my real life work. I will at least try to read and review other's stories while I can though, so don't expect me to disappear completely.
I hope you understand, and thank you for following Behind the Skull even though I was always later with my chapters that I intended. And above all, thank you for the wonderful reviews.
