I know I usually do this when I initially post the chapter, but it's better late than never, eh?
I realize that it has been an incredible long wait for this chapter, and for that I apologize. That ugly beast called Real Life seems to enjoy butting himself into things and intimidating my muse until she doesn't want to do anything. The good news is that I do have the next chapter started, so hopefully things won't take as long. I know that people want the updates, so that's one reason to keep going---besides the fact that I want to see where the story goes just as much as you do.
I would like to thank those that nominated Journey for the last IYFG term, although I didn't place in the voting. I appreciate that people enjoy my work enough to consider it worthy for awards and recognition. I don't write for that reason, but it's nice to see that from time to time.
Speaking of awards, the Maximum Challenge at MM.org has just announced its winners and I am thankful that Shake the Disease, from Songs of Faith and Devotion, placed third for Best Songfic. I am very proud of that story, and consider it my best completed effort of 2007. Hopefully I can actually get back to the next story in the series and finish it as I've meant to for some time. It's too bad I didn't place in the other categories I entered, but one placement is very rewarding.
Now for the review responses:
Until next time,
Far Away Eyes
