I have so many wonderful people to thank for this story.  So much energy and so much support was put into this one piece of work; and I know that I couldn't have done it without the loyalty, and encouragement of the souls listed below; and many, many more that haven't been named off.  Even if you only stopped and read without leaving a review; you are still one to be thanked, because you took the time to check out my work. ^^ And by the way, the song used in the end of the thank-you's- does belong to me.  So please, do not take or use any of it without asking.  Thanks! ^_^

~*~*~*~*~*~*Celestial's Thank-You's~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

hudson-396:  It was great hearing from you the other day. ^^ And I'm soo sorry about not having much of Alexandrite towards the end.  I kinda wanted to have it focused on the girls for a change of pace.  But I promise, in the sequel- I'll do that one thing you requested of him. ^_~ Plus, it'll give you all the more reason to read it.  ::playful smirk::  So yep- you get to keep him for a little while longer. ^^ Thank-you so much for all your support, and again you're welcome about that girl.  It was all my pleasure. ^^Thank-you again, my friend. ^_^

Great Sorcerer:  Aww, I'm sorry about killing Michelle.  But you did kill Ulf as well; and I really wished you hadn't still- eventhough the new him is cool. ^^ Thanks so much for your reviews.  I love it when people like my work- eventhough I sometimes think that I could do better; hearing that people are enjoying it makes my day just a little brighter.  Thanks again, and hope to see you in the sequel! ^_^

Fallen Angel of Lost Hope:  Flutter!!  ^^ My always loyal fan. ^^ What would I do without you?  Probably face writer's block, and plead insanity. ^^ You as well are a beautiful writer, and a great friend to me.  I am forever grateful for all of your support with my work, and I'm so glad you enjoy reading what I put out. ^^ Thanks so much again, and I hope you check out the sequel to this- coming soon! ^^ Ja ne, and talk to you soon! ^_^

Ciara - Irish Emerald:  What can I say to one of my best friends?  You're always there to kick my ass when it needs to be kicked, and to make me laugh when I'm in a bad state.  Your 9-11 poem was gorgeous, and it sucks that so many don't realize your true talent. ^^ Thanks for everything, friend, and by the way- E.A. misses you! ^_~ I'll talk to you later, and thankies so much again! ^_^

Last Pain:  Welcome. ^^ Always good to see a new reviewer around. ^^ Thanks so much for the kind words.  I'm glad you're enjoying this story, and I know- 6 reviews was pretty low in my opinion as well- but that's cool.  At least people are reading my work.  The numbers don't affect me as much as some may think. ^^ I just love getting new reviews from the fans. ^^ Glad you think this story rocks, and yep- I shall be writing more soon.  Watch for the sequel, and see ya there! ^_^

And lastly, I could not do this as well, without the love of my life.  Anton, darling- you have made me happier than I ever thought I could be.  I never truly knew the meaning of love, or the beauty of being alive- until I was graced with your presence.  The night we became a couple, I was thrilled beyond belief; and today- my feelings of bliss and pure light have not changed; they have only grown stronger.  I love you in every way possible, and I know you may never read this; but I couldn't end this out without thanking the one responsible for giving me back my soul.  Always and forever, sweet Ales- always and forever.  3  3  3  3

To those of you that still stand by and support me…I thank-you; with every inch of my spirit.  Allies and true fans are what make life, and the journeys we walk on all possible.  Lovies to all! ^_^

…"Look into my heart

Forever sad

I am lost without your love

And your gentle soul

As I walk this road of life

Will you be with me?

Through the never-ending days

And the lonely nights?

Sitting here

By myself in the dark

The tears

They fall

So calmly

But you are never far away

Looking down from the

Starry sky

There was completeness

But that was taken

You had to softly fade

Away like the ocean tide

As I walk this road of life

Will you be with me?

Through the never-ending days

And the lonely nights?

Sitting here

By myself in the dark

The tears

They fall

So calmly

But you are never far away

Looking down from the

Starry sky

Flashbacks of the day

Back when your love was mine

Protecting me from the world

Holding on so tight

I remember your many ways

Of making me feel special

Please be there with me always

On this road of life…"
