Dear Readers,

I got a PM the other day asking if I could repost the old version of SR while I edited, and it brought to my attention what a terrible and negligent person I've been as far as this site is concerned. The truth is, I have two chapters completed for the new version of SR and I think the story has vastly improved and I'm absolutely dying to share it with you.

But I can't.

Like many author's on this site, I'm extremely protective of my work, and after the plagiarism fiasco that ended with several authors taking their work down off the site, I'm wary about posting what I see as one of my best pieces on here, especially when I don't know how to go about ensuring that no one reposts my work somewhere else.

I've been having a constant inner battle with myself about the whole thing, because I'm dying for feedback from people who aren't my sister, or my best friend, and I loved all the interaction I had with all of you, but I can't post until I'm 100% sure I want to, and I'm not quite there yet.

I can completely understand if you all hate me now (I remember how disappointed and pissed I was when most of my favorite authors elected to take down their work) and I give you full entitlement to do so, but I'm begging you to try and understand. I don't consider my work to be the best here on fictionpress, but it's something very precious to me, and I don't want to put it at risk.

I'm not saying I'll never EVER post again (because I don't want to believe that's the case) and I am hoping to post some smaller pieces here, but don't expect to see SR anytime soon.

Again, I'm sorry.

-L
