Ok. This is going to be the last post of this version of the story.
No, I'm not giving up on this story. In fact, what I'm going to do is to rewrite/reboot the story.
I had done too many mistakes, plotwise and technically, that if I ever tried to edit things away, this story will collapse. Also, I had felt, and been informed, that too many technical aspects of the story had turned off readers just from the first chapter alone.
So...so...rewrite I shall do.
I truly hope that I get it right this time.
