Sorry, this isn't a chapter

Hi,

I know that I said that I'd post the next chapter this month, but that just isn't possible. I was able to post the rest because I was just waiting to get them back from betas (they were all written pre-birth), but now that I'm at the point of posting stuff that still needs to be written/edited, I've found it impossible. In January, the boys seemed to be sleeping longer, I had help at home, and I was getting an okay amount of sleep. Then, my husband started working longer hours, my nanny had a miscarriage and had to leave, and the boys started waking and eating more while sleeping less. I'm seriously sleep deprived, to the point where I can't drive a car most of the time.

I don't know when I'll be to next post because I don't know when I'll get enough sleep. Worst case scenario, I'll just post summaries of the last chapters in another 3 months.

I understand momma. Mine stopped sleeping through the night at 4 months (got 2 months and that was it). He's now 10 months. Couldn't go to church today because I wasn't safe to drive. Hang in there, don't push yourself on our account.

I hope you find time to sleep! I've been checking your livejournal just about every day, because I LOVE your stories. I'm glad all's relatively well. I have two five-month old nephews (not brothers-just cousins who're one week apart), and both sets of parents are pretty sleep deprived. I hope everything works out for you. Love you're writing! Stay awesome!

Thanks for letting us know! I think most of us were just simply worried if you were doing well or not. Don't worry if you can't post another chapter soon, take your time and honestly, try to get some sleep. If you ever get the chance, please update us on how you and the boys are faring! Best wishes!

Don't worry! I guess all of us know that this is a stressful time for any parent, you should be able to focus on your kids and on yourself ;) other authors need half a year to update and you postet new stuff almost a day later, I think we are spoiled enough from you ;) Take time for yourself and if you post a chapter in the future we will be glad to read it. Hope you get some rest soon :)

I am just glad you are okay. Hang in there. We will gladly wait for you to have time to write again. Your work is worth waiting for. Take care of yourself and your wonderful boys. If you can just drop us a note every so often on how you are doing. Thanks for letting us know.

Don't worry. I'm glad you're relatively all right and your boys as well. Your story is absolutely amazing and worth waiting for, so I can wait whole year for it or more, just take your time, get some sleep. If you can just drop us a line that you're ok from time to time. Thanks for letting us know. I wish you all best!

Please don't stress, I speak only for myself but I rather take a well written story even if takes, well a year or so. I have been following these series from the start and don't mind waiting as long as it is finished - in a comfortable pace for you. Please no summaries, the longest I have for a chapter update is 6 years, and I find your story a lot better. So I wait. But I understand if you want a break, having children (and twins!) is not easy and it takes a lot of time, thank you for giving notice.

At least we know you are all right.
I hope you cope well with every difficulty you're passing through, and find some time to rest and sleep.

It's sad that we won't have the last four chapters soon after all these years but I imagine you're doing your best and I'm grateful that at least you bothered leaving that note here so we would know you didn't forget us.

Please update as often as you can, even if it is just your news and nothing more than that.

Take care
Katara

Update when you can. I was worried something happened. I'm glad you're doing fine (besides the sleep depravity). I'll wait as long as you need time.

Like everyone else, I'm really glad to know that you're OK, and I hope things settle down soon so you can get some regular sleep.

Please don't feel pressured to write! Do it when you're ready and you have time to enjoy it. I love your writing, and I will wait patiently for however long it takes for you to get back to it.

Take care of yourself and your beautiful twins. Just post a few sentences every once in a while to let us know how you're doing. As you can see, we care. Best wishes!

To sum up the lot of us...

We don't want summaries, we want the whole chapters and we don't mind waiting (but we prefer summaries to nothing).

We want to hear from you (the often the better).

We are glad you and your boys are ok.

We want you to enjoy writing your final chapters (strange, THAT suspiciously sounds like me) so that we can enjoy it as well.

By "worth it waiting" we don't mean we don't want it now, now, now and "yesterday was too late", no, we just mean we want it in full beauty and we are willing to wait for it. Because the fact is we are desperate beasts who love your story and we are devoted to it, so let's don't forget on that, ok?

We are glad that you let us know you and boys are... well... healthy.

THANK YOU!

Take care, say hallo to your boys and take a long refreshing nap as soon as possible.

assez

Take care
Thank you for the update, it is just good to know that you are well, though tired. Take care of yourself and your family. Also take the time you need for your story. You are a special writer and should not feel pressured to post anything you aren't audited with.

phew,
I was worried about you for a while there :) I you and your family are okay. Since this little update has been posted, I've re-read NoG and Invictus. This time, instead of reading them separately, I read the chapter from one, and then the mirroring chapter in the other. I actually found it to be much more enjoyable! And its rekindled my love for this story. I honestly can't wait for the next update, but I understand your situation, and I'm glad you are putting your family first :) I really do hope you are all healthy!
Out of curiosity, will you be writing a Severus point of view for tRoS? Or is this really the end? And will you be continuing to write fan fiction once this story is over?
Just wondering :)
Waiting patiently,
R
