Well, I'm back! And not just to fictionpress—but to school, too! (Graduate program! Weeeeeee!)

Anywho, I've got enough material to post a more-or-less through-written version of the story. Yes, it's not complete; yes there are still gaps; yes, it's virtually all unedited; yes, I need to cut back quite a bit of unnecessary jibber-jabber. But, right now, FEEDBACK is more important than any of that. Indeed, only with good feedback will I be able to properly resolve the aforementioned issues.

People familiar with this story will find that there is much more here than what they saw before. And hopefully, new readers will find this to be a story to enjoy and cherish. I know that the first few chapters are a bit slow (I'm presently working on fixing it!), but please, if you can, stick with this story. I've poured my heart and soul into this thing, and as such, I'll be eternally grateful for a review or two.
