To whom it may concern: this story has been discontinued by the original author, mostly because I grew out of it and didn't have any interest in revising/overhauling it to fix all of the things that now make me cringe about it. However, another author messaged me to ask for permission to continue the story to how they imagined it might end, and I was delighted to agree. The continuation can be found here: s/3274652/1/It-s-All-Been-Done. I didn't have any story notes or anything to pass on, so this continuation is completely vis verbi's creation. I hope it gives anyone who was invested in the ending some closure, and thank you for reading!
