This story was written last year for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Well, that is, the first 65 pages or so were written in that time period. I didn't reach my goal of 50,000 words in one month, but I ended up with a good start to an equally great story. I haven't added on much since then (I've been busy with school, and Almost An Angel took up pretty much any free time I had for writing). Now that summertime is here, however, I've started to go back and edit some of my older stuff, and this was the first story I went to.

For anyone that's read this story before, and is confused by the sudden decrease in chapters… Don't worry. I haven't really changed anything, I've simply reorganized the chapters into longer, more cohesive parts. A few sentences have been deleted from various chapters, and a few paragraphs have been added. The only major change is that I've taken down the last few "chapters". They'll be back soon, I just want to rewrite them—I want the emotions to be just right.

Oh, and for people that haven't read this story, there is homosexuality and non-Christian religions contained within the following chapters. If either of those factors bother you… Well, give my story a try, it may change your mind. If you don't want to risk opening your mind, however, then I recommend that you just walk away before you're scarred. If you continue, it's your fault, not mine—you've been warned!

Well, onto the story. I hope you enjoy what I have posted thus far. The next few chapters should be up within a few days, and new chapters will come sometime later this summer. Enjoy, review if you'd like, but remember—no flames! I take constructive criticism quite well, or even arguments against the content of my story (though that would be better expressed in an e-mail), but no "This sux!1!1!!1 I h8 u, ur going 2 Hell!!!1" I've never been truly flamed, and I'd like to keep it that way, so please be careful about what you write, okay? Thanks!
