Whelp. There's not much to say that probably isn't glaringly obvious: it's been a long fucking two years, y'all. And this update has been long overdue, so please know that, with everything that's been going on, your follows and comments have kept me going. I knew I was going to finish this story, and I'm so glad that I can finally post that I have.
If you're still with me, and I hope that you are, the first three chapters of part II of Origins have been posted. The title is "Requiem."
Thanks for sticking around. I really hope the wait is worth it for you. :-)
