Dear Readers,

Yes the story is over and most of you are probably thinking, "Why the hell is there another chapter?" Well maybe not but that's beside the point.

I know you aren't supposed have an entry that is all and author's note, but if the people of fictionpress have bothered to read this whole thing trying to find a wrongdoer, then I don't give them enough credit.

Well I wrote the first entry a year ago, to the day actually. And I swear to God I did not plan that. It's just one of those really weird coincidences.

Now I'll get to the point. I know that wasn't exactly a neatly wrapped up ending, but it's a diary. It's supposed to be like she got too busy with her new life to bother writing in a diary anymore. Plus it's no fun if you know exactly what happens in the end. And yes, I purposely didn't put a period at the end of the last sentence.

A lot of people have asked me if this story is real or not. Well that's actually hard to answer. Many of the events are based on real things that have happened to me. Most of the characters are based on real people (thank, you guys, for letting me steal your souls!). Katie is not real. I am not Katie. If I ever met Katie, I would punch her in the face for selling her guitar for a cell phone.

Also you might want to know if there will be a sequel. Well I'm definitely done with Katie, but I'm thinking about writing a story from another character's point of view. I only have some vague ideas at the moment, so it's not for sure. For now I'm taking a well-deserved break from writing.

If you have any questions, comments, complaints, or whatever, just email me (my email's in my profile). That way I can respond to you, unlike in a review (though review too, I like reviews). Also, I have instant messenger, so feel free to add me. If you want to read the beta version of this story, you can email me about that. Though most of you have had a fun time making fun of my typos.

Well I suppose that's all I have to say. I hope you enjoyed Us, Them, and Those as much as I did. Not only was it fun to write, but I also learned a lot about myself. If you think my story sucked, then why the hell are you still reading? You must have a lot of time on your hands.

Peace out!
