Hello everyone. Sentinel07 here. It's been a long time hasn't it. Probably not the update some of you were waiting for.

Judging from the continuous updates I get from views and notices from new followers, it's clear a lot of you do still follow this story. I can't thank you enough for that. I'm glad a lot of you liked the story. Naturally, I'm sure you all want to know why it stopped so suddenly.

Well, to put it simply, stuff happened. Both ThisWillBeFun and I got wrapped up in other things, and eventually interest seemed to wane. As of now, ThisWillBeFun doesn't even particularly like SAO much anymore and doesn't feel the drive at this point.

Both of us kind of had an odd relationship with SAO. We considered the overall story of SAO to range from eh to bad, but liked the concept enough that doing an alternate take was fun. Even now, I still consider it a fun idea myself.

But yeah, that's the general gist of everything that's happened over the past few years. Again, I thank you all for your support. I apologize for the story stopping so early on. Perhaps it might come back to life. We shall see. I'll label it as complete for now at least.

At the least, I wanted all of you to know how things got to this point. This is perhaps the story's endpoint, but never say never.

Welp, that's my story. Thank you all again. Sentinel07, signing out!
