This story has been sitting, untouched, for almost two years. I apologize for that.
The good news is that my muse has returned, and the next chapter of the story is written. It will be posted on the weekend.
In the meantime, I have been working through the first 12 chapters of the story, catching a few typos, correcting a couple of minor plot inconsistencies, and making other minor changes of that nature. The first four chapters have already been reposted. The remaining eight will be looked at and reposted over the next few days.
Thanks to everyone for your patience on this one. I'm enjoying getting back to it after being away for so long.
