I started this when I was rather young. Too young, maybe.

It has been nearly a decade now, and this story has painfully sat with updates growing fewer and farer between. I appreciate those who tolerated me and continued to read. I want to make it very clear that I NEVER would have gotten as far as I did without the reviews and encouragement. Thank you. Again and again, thank you.

I wonder if people can tell from the chapter content that I was growing up as I wrote them. I've mentioned attempts at rewrites and heavy editing, but they never happened. The first chapter stays as I wrote it when I was in middle school, shortly after learning how to type. I wrote the last chapter while in college.

Anyhow, enjoy. I surely did.
