Hello! Yes, I am alive! I feel that an explanation for my absence is long overdue.
Well, I’m not dead. And I haven’t abandoned the story or anything. It’s just I’ve suddenly gone from being jobless and having lots of free time to having 3.5 jobs and the lack of time to do…anything…takes a little getting used to. I am working on the next chapter when I can! I apologize both for the horrendous delay and for not saying anything.
