    Kikeriki Thanks, Kikeriki! That really sets my heart at ease. I've felt so bad because I really wanted to have more posts done than this but, yes, old Darth Real Life has a habit, sometimes, of stepping in and spoiling all the fun. :( Oh, well, nothing to do but go forward. Thanks again for your prayers. :)

    Sabe I will. See? :D

    Cascadia Thanks, Cascadia! I'll do my best to get a post up sometime this week. *crossing my fingers*

    PadawanKitara Thank you, PK! Really appreciate that.

    Nik[ta Thanks, Nikita! I appreciate your kind words and your prayers. :)

    Obis Grl Thanks, Obis Grl! You're very sweet! :D

    Sabe Thanks for the up!

    Flashbacca Wow! A loyal fan! Thanks! :D

    I missed a post - Dang! and Dang! was it good too!

    Arwyn I am truly enjoying this little foray of yours into ancient Rome! This story continues to be so very creative and I do so enjoy reading it!

    I also wanted to let you know that I will be thinking of you and your job situation.

    I can wait quite a while for posts to stories as good as the three you have going on on the boards right now.

    Sabe Thanks for the ups, Sabe!

    FAB Thanks, FAB! I've learned so much about Ancient Rome. What a fascinating time. :) And thanks for being patient with me. I must admit that, in light of my lay-off, I've also decided to start work on a novel I've been wanting to write for years, so I'll be working on that also. I figured I might as well follow one of my dreams while I look for some way to support myself. I'll be working on my novel, but I will continue to do updates to my fics. They just won't come as often as they used to. Thanks again! :)

    SPECIAL ANNOUCEMENT

    Hi, All! Thanks for the ups, everyone, but I have some bad news, I'm afraid. After carefully considering my current situation, I've decided to put "Strength and Honor" on hiatus. This is the most complicated of the three fics I'm writing in that I have to do quite a bit of research for it. In light of the fact that I posted it two days before I was told I was being laid off from my job, I had no idea I was going to be in this situation when I started the fic.

    I'm very sorry about this. I hope I will be able to return to this story at some point, once I've found new employment and things have settled down at bit. I will continue to work on the other two fics I'm writing, but this one I will have to set aside for the time being.

    Thanks, everyone, for your support of this fic. Since it was my first ever cross-over, your words of encouragement were extra-special. I hope to return to it at some point, especially considering all the research I've done for it so far :)

    Thanks, again! :)

    Arwyn Don't worry - we will all be waiting for your return. And, I'm glad to know that you will at least be updating your other 2 fics.

    Don't worry -- we'll wait patiently for you here, while reading the other two. :D

    ...but this doesn't mean "Strength and Honor" shouldn't get regular ups to help keep it around! Let's give those a start with:


    1,000 amphorae of Tabrulian beer on the wall,
    1,000 amphorae of Tabrulian beer on the wall,
    And if one amphora should accidentally fall,
    There'll be...999 amphorae of Tabrulian beer on the wall.

    999 amphorae...

    Definitely! Good job-hunting, and don't worry, we'll wait!

    and to keep this up...

    999 amphorae of Tabrulian beer on the wall,
    999 amphorae of Tabrulian beer on the wall,
    And if one amphora should accidentally fall,
    There'll be...998 amphorae of Tabrulian beer on the wall.

    998 amphorae...
