Just an update for those of you wondering when I'll be writing more... felt bad for dropping off the radar.
I was hired to illustrate my first book, and while it's an awesome opportunity, the art has been consuming all of my free time. It's a large project so it'll probably be a while (maybe months) before I can get back to updating this story. Definitely haven't abandoned it though and I'll continue as soon as possible.
In the meantime, thanks so much for the feedback, everyone! Your reviews make my day and I wish I could have a new chapter ready. If you have any feedback or suggestions for the story so far (or just want to nerd out over these awesome characters) I'd be happy to answer PMs.
