No, your eyes are NOT deceiving you - I have (finally) updated this story! It's only been five years, but who's counting? :P

(Like my new banner? ♥ The upside of taking such a long hiatus, when your original inspiration song is re-uploaded to YouTube in high def, LOL.)

Notes on Chapter 25 )

I am really, really pleased to be working on this story again ♥ It has never been far from my heart or my mind. This is my happy place and it's always a pleasure to spend some quality time here ♥ ♥ ♥

[+] Slowly but surely, I've been going through Stacy in Bloom and giving it a light edit. I am hopeful that I'll be able to update it soon, because its been too long ♥

[+] I also wanted to gauge potential interest in having another Summer Mini Challenge. I'm still working on my [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo card, but could always use a summer time boost. Anybody else game?

Well, as I said in the note at the top of this chapter, it's hard to believe this story even has a two-year anniversary, LOL! I think back to early spring 2010 and the manic high during which this story was conceived, and just shake my head. John Lennon was right - life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans =)

But, since this fic is two years old and nowhere near complete, I decided to dust off the chapter I'd written back in October, clean it up (after changing my mind a couple of times as to where I wanted the storyline to go after this particular chain of events), and put it up. Maybe someone out there still gives a damn? LOL.

Notes on Chapter 24 )

KI fandom has been rockin' these last couple of weeks, not in the least because the absolutely awesome charlieinpcbfl1 has decided to share his collection of episodes with us on YouTube! He's planning to eventually put up the entire series (!!), so go support him in his endeavors by subscribing to his channel and making your episode requests! The quality of his stuff is really top-notch - plus, he's just an all-around awesome guy, and way generous, to boot. I ♥ my fellow KI fans so frickin' much!!!

The Big Date has finally arrived, and boy ~ is it a doozy! Weighing in at an incredible 14,575 words, it is by far the longest chapter I've ever written for a fic - but every single detail was vital, not only in exploring this much anticipated event in the main characters' relationship, but because it also launches all of the second-half storylines - as well as laying the foundation for the sequel.

Notes for Chapter 22 )

Thank you, so much, to everyone who's stuck by me with this fic. I apologize profusely for the length of time its taken me to publish this, but I really wanted to take my time and get it right. The consequences of the actions that occur in this chapter will reverberate through the rest of the story, including some very immediate ones coming up in the next chapter!
