Personal thank yous first...

Mystery person: Thank you for your review. I know it has been a long wait... and I apologize.

Alanna: I have so many mixed feelings about ending this story. First I'm so happy I've finally finished my first chapter fic. Gee... took me long enough. Second, I'm kinda sad. This has been sucha great fic to write. You can't begin to imagine how many times I played out the story in my head like a tv show. ENDLESS HOURS OF ENTERTAINMENT! Yah... I revel in the simple things in life. Lol! Thank you so much for sticking by this fic... it means so much to me!

Steffi! You have got to be one of the most enthu ppl to ever review. I'm sorry for the tears this conclusion is causing. I'm not sure when I'll have another story out. But who knows, with me back in classes... it could be VERY soon. :D hee hee. Who says school is a place of learning... lol. No. bad veggie. School is good. Stay in school. Learn a lot. Become really smart ppl! Yay! (?) As for them coming together quickly and the proposal. let's pretend we travelled in time a bit. :D That's my excuse. And I'm sticking by it!

AerinBrown: I'm sorry if I disappointed you. No wedding scene. I don't even think I would be able to do them justice if I did. It would get too sappy and I would be all... "I can't believe I wrote that" Anywho. Thanks for reading my fic. Hope the cliffies weren't TOO painful for you.

Lisa: YOU ARE SO SWEET! Thank you so much for your lovely e-mails. You always put a smile on my face. Hee hee... I still am always blown away by the fact that I have a "FAN". Can you imagine? Me? Veggie? Have a fan? Cool stuff. Really, it is! Your encouragement and e-mails have kept me from totally abandoning this fic. You (as a little Philly would say) ROCK!

Galxychld: It has been a looooooooooong ride. And I can't believe it has come to an end. Crazy isn't it? This fic started with such humble beginnings. And somehow this is what we've all ended up with. ;) Funny how things work out, isn't it? :) Thank you for your reviews and support!

A. Windsor: Thank you so much for not giving up on this fic until the very end. Your reviews have always been much appreciated!

EIE: What can I say? You're reviews are always so entertaining to read. Almost like a mini fic in itself. Gee. Where on earth do you find the energy? :) I know, it's been ages since I've been back to the fic world.. in all honesty, I had left for a while (work was WAY too tiresome). I apologize for making you wait SO INCREDIBLY LONG for my next chapters. I'm so so very sorry about the worry lines. Here's some moisturizer to help out in the mean time. Oh. And not the cheap oily greasy ones... the good stuff. All my readers deserve the very best! :D And about your fic... once I have my work report out of the way... you better believe I'll be there front row and centre reading your stuff and hassling you to write the next chappie. Darn tootin'! I always look forward to hearing from you! You are an amazing writer and I'm just honoured that you appreciate MY writing! It's an incredibly overwhelming feeling. Honest. Thanks for your many reviews... and for the laughs! Keep on writing, girl! You're amazing! :)

Jessie: Have I ever thanked you for putting me in as a fave author? If not, first off... what on earth was I thinking? Second... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Seriously, I was so touched when I saw that! It means a lot to me. I made it on someone's fave list! That's just way cool! Thanks!

Lois: I know the last chapter was a tad on the short side... but I hope this makes it up.

CrimsonCat: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! Can you believe it? In living flesh! Mr. S AND David Orth! Hold on while I catch my breath! Seriously, I know I must've looked like a deer caught in a set of headlights! Geez, remind me to keep hassling Danae about that. Don't mind me while I rant on. It was so great to finally meet you! Have we converted your friend yet? As Danae said, we should have another Toronto get together even before the next North-South Con. I still have to convince myself it was REAL! Not some crazy dream. And in response to your "subtle" hint to finish my fic on Saturday... look what it got ya! The conclusion! :D Good work, Crimson. And like I said, I haven't been on for a while... but I'll be sure to catch up on everyone's fic and then get on with hounding YOU to finish... hee hee. *THUD* oopsie. Sorry about that. Still reeling. He talked to me about Kitchner and uni! I, l'il ol me. The crazy nut, veggie... talking to Mr. Orth! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I honestly don't think I'll ever be able to get used to it! Alright. Enough rambling. Thanks for being so encouraging! And whenever you feel down always remember... WE'RE NOT COMPLETE FREAKS! ;) good luck in the uni choosing!


On a final note. For those of you who've read and haven't reviewed or are reading for the first time cuz you don't like reading incomplete fics. THANK YOU for taking the time to read my first COMPLETED chapter fic EVER! This has been a labour of love (?) and I've enjoyed hearing from you readers. I also apologize to those who've been annoyed at my crazily long author's notes and thank yous. Thank you for enduring the craziness that is me. For you readers that are fic author's... continue writing! I'll need a lot of fics to keep me going this school term. I'm counting on YOU!

Please review. I'd love to hear what you think. Though, I'm most likely not going to change anything or write a sequel. But, hey, who knows what the future may bring. :D LOVE YOU ALL!

pEace oUt!
