It's been quite a long time since the last update of this fic, and I feel like you all deserve to know what's going on - so bear with me.
CJ and I will not be continuing this fic as we planned to. We had a lot of the plot planned out, but for various reasons we will not be working on this fic together anymore, at least for the immediate future. However, we didn't want this story to just... exist in this kind of limbo where it's unfinished and all of you are waiting for updates, so we have agreed that I will be trying to continue it on my own.
For... several reasons that I will not be getting into, I don't feel it's right for me to just write this fic out as we planned it together, by myself. But I also don't want this project to just die - so here's how it's going to go:
We'll make this fic... interactive. You guys tell me what you want to see, and I'll write it. I have a rough outline that I will try to stick to, but other than that, I'll leave the plot components up to you - I will be building on your suggestions and ideas rather than sticking to a plan that's almost a year old and wasn't "mine" to begin with.
I hope this makes sense, and I hope you're not upset by the development. I will get back to writing with fresh ideas and fresh motivation soon.
Thank you for your patience, and I look forward to working with you!
