From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you all for sticking with me through this entire journey.
A lot in my life has been different since I started "The Fated Ones". I wasn't really sure what my endgame was going to be when I started the first story. I just know I wanted to make a satisfying conclusion for Ichabod and Abbie, something we were denied by the stupid writers and whatnot of the show. Also, if you couldn't tell, this entire story was a huge apology and token of appreciation to Nicole Beharie, who I feel was done so wrong by how all of that went down. Originally, I thought "Fated Ones" would be the only story I would do, maybe one more, but then… something happened.
All of you.
Now, make no mistake, my then-girlfriend, now-wife had a lot to do with my decision to continue it. But posting it all was because of you guys. Thank you so much for your time and attention to this story. It made me feel like I had a good handle on the characters and the story; the most important, though, was the characters. I wanted to make sure I got them right and, honestly, I feel like I did.
What's next? Well, for the moment, I'm taking a break from Sleepy Hollow. I'll probably move some of my other Sleepy Hollow stories to AO3 from my FanFic account but, other than that, I don't know if I'll post anything new with Sleepy Hollow for a while now. The few exceptions may be some one-shots, here and there; a few one-shots for the "Of the Fated" series that connects to this universe (there is a five-year gap, after all, and, yes, I did that on purpose); and the Sleepy Hollow AU I've been working on, the "Let Love In" series. But, really, this is probably my last Sleepy Hollow chapter story. It's really hard to see to say good-bye to this series, but this was a fantastic run. And, honestly? I've got no complaints. I'm very proud of how all of this turned out. I think this whole process helped me grow as a writer and as a person.
Thank you all for sticking with me, through all of it. That support… I'll never be able to express enough how much it meant to me. To my Twitter crew, especially (all of you know you are), "thank you" just isn't enough. And I'll never be able to say "thank you" enough.
And to my wife and to my sister who loved the show with me, were furious at the ending, and loved my stories, thank you both. To my wife, Ligaya, thank you for being the love of my life and my source of inspiration. To my big sis, Leatha, thank you for being one of my first audiences for any story I ever told.
If you like my writings, be sure to give my other stories a read. Also, I self-published a novel, which is available for purchase on Amazon, Tatsu Angelo: Ronin Days.
Well, I guess that's all folks. Thank you. Love you all.
One last time… see you later, Dreamers and Sleepyheads.
This is T2 Angel aka RavenT2 aka T.B. Wesley II, signing off. Good-bye and good night.
