Hey everyone! First off, I just want to apologize if you got excited because you thought this was a /real/ update.

But I've been thinking long and hard about this, and I thought who better to ask than all of you amazing people who read this and loved it so much?

I REALLY want to re-write this. This was pretty much my very first original story and looking back on it, it honestly makes me cringe sometimes. I feel like I've grown a lot in the past several years, both as a person and as a writer. So my question is, if I do a re-write, would you want to read it? There are some major changes I'm contemplating, but all the characters will still be there.

To tell the truth I will probably re-write it anyway, just for my own enjoyment. But if you're satisfied with this version than I won't waste my time in uploading on here. If you do want to read it, though, would you prefer me to make an entirely new story, or to simply replace the chapters in this already existing fictionpress document?

I know that I technically "re-wrote" this about two years ago, but a part of me couldn't let go of some of my original ideas I had come up with then. Now, I know that in order to make the story the best it can be, some scenes, whether they're big or emotional, or whatever, have to be sacrificed. I consider last time to be more of an "edit" than anything, because I only changed a few things. This time, there will be a lot more effort and work put into the changes.

Part of wanting to do this comes from all the amazing comments and feedback you gave me on this. I really want to implement some of your suggestions. Please let me know your opinions in a review on this update or by a PM. I truly thank all of you for your support and love you have given me. Despite having uploaded this nearly four years ago, I still get notifications that it's been added to favorites and each one honestly warms my heart.

I want all of you to have the best story possible, so PLEASE let me know if you'd like a re-write.

Thank you all SO much. I love you and hope you all have a wonderful 2014!

Clara.

P.s. This goes for the sequel as well. (And maybe if these go well, I'll finally be able to finish book three).
