Hi! I have pretty much officially moved to ao3, @ theacesofspades. Find me there, for more stories than are listed here! ;)

Since I have been getting messages about it for the past few years, I wanted to clarify a thing I never really wanted to need to clarify. No, I will not ever be continuing the Gregor fanfic, for a number of reasons.

One of the biggest of which has to do with something a recent comment helpfully pointed out, and that is that those kinds of stories are technically against FF's rules. Trust me, I am quite aware. I don't know how many of y'all were on FF when there was that whole purge of 'Reading X' fics that happened, but it did and, not coincidentally, that is also when I stopped updating mine. My hope was that if I didn't update it, no one would notice it and the readers going around reporting everyone would pass over mine and the people who liked it could continue to read it. As of now, that has been the case.

Additionally, as I waited for that whole purge to blow over, I did lose interest in continuing it. For that, I am truly sorry. I lurked around on FF long before I ever got an account or wrote anything. I found my share of fics I loved that got dropped and went uncompleted and I vowed to myself and to my readers that I would never do that. I truly never wanted to, but the promises you make at, what, fourteen I think I was? Or younger? Those promises don't always keep well. I am sorry.

To the guests (and sometimes non-anonymous people) whose reviews were nothing but insistence that I continued, I was initially empathetic, but it grows tiresome when that's all you tell me about my story. To the people who PMed me with nothing to say but an order to keep writing, I ignored you for a reason. To the guest that actually reviewed one of my first original stories to tell me to continue my Gregor fanfic, kindly fuck right off. Okay? I am sorry, genuinely, that I will not be continuing it, but really? Leave my other work out of it.

To those that left me genuine reviews, and talked to me, and commented on my story from the beginning: Thank y'all so so much for your time. Y'all mean the world to me. I was young and stupid and I refuse to read my old work because of that because I know it's all shit, but y'all treated it like it was the best thing, and gave me the courage to write and kept me writing. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I cannot begin to express what y'all mean to me. Thank you for your time, your patience, your kind words, and your kindness. Y'all are the best kinds of people.
