Hi, everyone. I'm aware it's been one of the longest waits ever, and I apologize profusely for that. It's going to be just a quick and briefly tragic update for you here. Please excuse any grammar or spelling mistakes, as I'm updating on my phone...

Here we go. Bad news first. After many ongoing problems with my laptop that have contributed to my sustained, unexplained and and unexpected absences from ff, it finally and thoroughly died. As an insanely frustrating result, I've lost all future DD plot lines, sub-plots, side notes, rough drafts, and all manner of other details. UGH!

THUS—my hiatus explained.

However, I'm working on re-writing everything and will have the next chapter up as soon as I can and have not given up on Edythe and Beau.

Now onto some good news. I've been working on some (very amateur) fanart, and will try and find a way to share that with you all! Maybe make it my profile pic?

Hope you're all well, had a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Kwanza or other various holidays and a Happy New Year! Hang in there, and see you soon!
