GOOD NEWS FOR ALL ACITW FANS!!
After a few weeks of searching, finding, and then negotiating, I (fmhartz91) have been given the OFFICIAL go ahead and blessing by Cacophonylights to complete her story. I (fmhartz91) will be working with her original beta to finish the story in the vein that she originally intended. I (fmhartz91) need to iron out a few things with the lady herself, so that will push my timeline to the middle or end of February, so please be patient. I (fmhartz91) want to give you guys and Cacophony the ending this story deserves.
I (fmhartz91) cannot give you any information as to why Cacophony herself will not be completing the story other than to say that for her own personal reasons she made the decision to allow me to finish it for her.
So, thank you for your patience, and for all of you who supported my efforts since the beginning - I (fmhartz91) promise I will do my best not to let you down :)
EDIT: At some point in the process, Cacophony may choose to return and finish the story herself. This is also something we will be discussing. I will give you more information as I get it, so please bare with me.
