THIS NOTE WILL BE KEPT IN PLACE SO AS NOT TO CAUSE ISSUES WITH THE REVIEW SYSTEM. PLEASE MOVE ALONG TO THE NEXT CHAPTER.

Hey, guys. I know it's been a while since any of you heard from me. Typically I don't take this long between updates, so I just wanted to let you know that I'm still here and that this story has NOT been abandoned. RL is just keeping me insanely busy right now and not leaving much time to write anything. Hopefully the next chapter won't take long once I can actually start on it, and I'll get it up here as soon as I can.

In the meantime, I hope everyone is having a good Valentine's Day!
