Edit: Removed the link to FF.N as it is no longer needed. All previous chapters have been restored to their full length! Well, I'm still here. As I'm sure everyone knows by now, much of this story is missing due to the truncated post issue, and a lot of the punctuation is weird. This is actually not the worst thing for me, since I have yet to finish the next chapter. I know, I know; I had six months, what's wrong with me? As always, I blame DRL and - to some extent - DWB. Anyway, I saw that we've been given the okay to post links to our stories on other websites, as long as they're still TOS compliant, so that's what I'm going to do for now. Here you go! (And feel free to respond here; I actually prefer the JC over FF.N when it comes to reader replies. Easier for me to read and respond. But if you'd rather reply over there, that's cool, too.) Also, @Rew - I did not forget about you! Once posts are fully restored and we get unlimited editing back, I will return and answer your awesome review! Or if it takes a while for those things to happen, I'll come back anyway and respond to as much as I can, since it looks like your post got cut off by the word limit as well. Thank you for taking the time to craft such a thoughtful response! It totally made my day back in February, and it made my day again just rereading what's there.
