    You know what? I think I do, too!


    :p


    Thanks! I'm tempted to draw one of him and Jaina at the ball. You guys have any requests for illustrations? :D

    Yeah, the ball scene would be awesome.

    I can't wait until you update, though...:(

    I can't wait until I update, either. I had to rethink some things in the 'fic that became unfeasible, so I'm working around those.

    ETA:

    Look, more art! This is Rache presenting Jaina to Empress Jade at the ball.

    Sexy Kyp hair and you know my feelings on the cape. I like the depiction of Jaina.

    Thanks. :D I used, as usual, Shane Brolly and Kate Beckinsale for the likenesses.

    Nice story. I like a sensible Dark Lord for once. All those maniacs get pretty boring.

    Is there going to be a new post anytime soon? Can I be on the PM list?

    I know, I'm working on it! It's just been difficult to do.


    Thank you! There will hopefully be an update soon, but I make no promises.

    I can definitely add you to the PM list. :)

    A rather interesting and fresh take! I'm in definite agreement that Kyp wouldn't be your 'typical' Sith Lord. He'd be all the more dangerous for it, however. And he still has the Sun Crusher, eh? [face_laugh]

    Some things I liked? Jaina's being drawn to and repelled to him at the same time. They are both trying to pull the other to their direction, and it will be interesting to see who wins. Jaina's making him promise to never sleep with Jade again made me laugh out loud. Sorry Kyp, your bachelor days are over:p

    Add me to the PM list please?

    Hello!:)

    I just finished reading this and it is absolutely fantastic! I just wanted to give this a little bitty push up the boards.

    Oh, and your artwork was really good!:D

    Hey, guys! I'm sorry that it's been so long since I've updated; I intended to update well before this, but I've had massive computer problems since February. In fact, my computer is at this moment off being repaired, and I'm using a borrowed one. So an update is probably going to have to wait until I get my own laptop back, or I know more about its condition.

    I can say that with LOTF, I want to tell the writers to keep out of my head and stop stealing my unposted storylines! :p

    Except you would have done them with eclat and elan and a bunch of other fancy words that mean you wouldn't have wasted a perfectly good storyline! Please update soon. :)

    Hey, guys. Sorry I haven't been around in a while. I, um . . . was just diagnosed with chronic depression. All I'm going to say about it is that this involved a hospital stay and resulted in some nice little antidepressants.

    I'm working on getting back to my writing, but given what I've just been through, I . . . can't say when it will be.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Take care of yourself first... we'll still be here for you when you're ready.

    Your writing is wonderful, as are your pictures. Take heart that we know that. Keep us posted, I know my thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time.
