Hello all! It's been a longggg time since I last updated this, and a lot has changed since then

6 years ago, I was at an extremely low point in my life, so I wrote about a girl who embodied those frustrations, whether I realized it or not at the time. The same circumstances that caused me to start writing Free-Lancer was what halted its progress as well

In the midst of the world's current chaos, I picked up Yukimi's story again, and I fell in love. I've been reworking her story ever since.

Currently I'm publishing the revamped version of Free-Lancer on other sites, which I'll include below. A lot has been changed to better reflect my own understanding of myself and the world, as well as to take out the more problematic aspects.

It follows most of the original plot I had laid out, but with (hopefully) a more nuanced take on abuse, trauma, growing up and queerness. Names and backgrounds have been adjusted and expanded, yet still the same characters, for me.

I've decided to delete this story once the new version has caught up, and we're one more chapter away. After that, the new version will be published here too.

To all who followed, commented and enjoyed Free-Lancer, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You gave support and encouragement to a struggling teenager in desperate need of it, however small it seemed.

~Mimi
