13. Out of the Ęther by missyanne [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarstar (5379 words) Printer

This first scene was almost two years in the making. At the time I wrote the original, I did not have the writing experience to create an Occlumency scene, so I brushed over it rather than butcher it. I hope I got it right. 'Single italicised quotations' indicate dialogue between Harry and Severus within the realm of Harry's mind. I hope you enjoy. Oh...warning: One usage of the 'F' word here.

I am so sorry. Not only did I go back to work full time, my health as taken a downturn. What little free time I have, I have very little energy to write. But this story, and all of my stories for that matter, mean a lot to me and I am determined to finish them. I get some test results back soon and it is already looking like I will be taking medical leave for surgery. I hope to play catch up when I recover enough. Hopefully, after everything is done, I will have the energy to write on a more regular basis. I really want to finish this up by Christmas.

I also want to thank all of you for your continued support. I'm sorry to have left you hanging for over a year and I beg your forgiveness.

This chapter has been done for over as week, but I haven't heard back from my beta, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there aren't too many mistakes. That being said, let us continue.

OMG! I am back! I can't offer up enough apologies. I can only say that my muse went off and hid somewhere. After much world searching and spelunking, I found it in a previously unknown cave somewhere in the Yangtze Valley. I cannot tell you how happy I am to be back. To those of you who have patiently or impatiently waited for an update, Thank you. I actually have the next four chapters outlined and I am eager to write them. I have even cleared the path for an ending. Thank you, once again for your support. You are all too kind. Author's Note: The Italicized section is Harry's flashback.
