I've come to make an announcement. Shadow the Hedgehog is a bitch-ass mother fu-

Nah, I'm just fucking with you. But I am here to announce something.

So, the reason I haven't updated the Overboss is simple. I haven't a damn clue how to do so. It felt like I was just dragging Cainen's story on just for the sake of it, and I was getting sick of it. I was fully planning on just canceling it as I had with so many other fics I've made, just leaving it behind and focusing on my newer stuff, like Vanguard's Ax. BUT, then someone left a comment on Ain't No Place For Children (shameless plug, I know) suggesting I leave Cainen's arc behind, since that's all but finished, and start a new story following Robin and her quest to become strong enough to finally slay her father. Because let's be honest, as cool and badass as Cainen is, he's been reduced to nothing more than a raving madman by Exitium with a powerful Relic. There's no way for me to continue his story in an interesting and exciting way.

So, I'll be marking this story as complete, which'll be a bloody first, and beginning work on the sequel to this. I've already got it partially done, but I want to really try with this. My main flaw is my impatience. I love reading the comments you lads leave. A lot. Too much, in fact, to the point that I try to push chapters out regardless of the quality. With this story, I swear to Odin himself, I'm going to put my all into it. Or at least make chapters longer than 2k words.

So you all can look forward to the future release of Hope In The Darkness. It won't be nearly as dark as The Overboss, but I'm getting sick of writing that type of shit.

Oh, and in the first chapter, I'll be responding to the comments on this update. Just so you know.

Skål!
