Author's Note:

Wow, this has been a battle and a half to complete. The first chapter was written in 2001, and it has taken over ten years to complete.

I never hurry myself with fanfiction. I like to write things when I feel the time is right. That's why there is sometimes days or even years between chapters.

The answer came to me last night, I had an epilogue. I felt I had explored enough to complete the story.

I might write some one-shots in the future, but the main story is complete.

Thank you to EVERYONE who has been on this journey with me. I am thankful for every single review, fave and follow. I still cannot believe there are ninety-five reviews, and this story was voted in the Turtle story awards as a winner. I'm overwhelmed.

I hope this ends the way everyone was hoping. The story was entitled Survival of the Species for a reason. I've taken liberties with Turtle biology because they need to reproduce at a fairly fast rate to start to build the species into something that can survive the generations to come.

Finally, I want to thank everyone who wrote to encourage me personally.

I hope you managed to see the ending, and didn't disappear into the world without checking back every now and again. I hope you've come back and seen the finale.

Bless you all.
