Well, I have put Tom, and his adventures, to bed. I finished the story today, and have posted it to the site. As soon as it is checked it will be available.
Some of you asked what happened, and why I stopped working on it. The answer is simple, real life intruded on my life. I have been looking for a job, and that took priority. I lost my internet connection a few times, so I didn't get e-mail either, so I didn't get the complaints. I am working again, and trying to get my life back together.
Now you know why I prefer to only post completed stories. This has been a nightmare. The last part ended up as large as the first three. Sorry, but the chapter designations have changed. I gave the whole story an edit, and restructured it when I finished it.
So that's about it. Enjoy... And before you ask - NO - I will not be continuing it. If there are any brave souls that want to write about the second trip, that is your choice, I had to end this somewhere, and I chose here.
