As you have undoubtedly noticed, all the chapters save the first one were deleted. This was not what I was planning to do even a couple of days ago; I was planning on finishing this story and having it published here.

This choice was taken away from me, together with my author's copyrights by one of my readers. The said person, hiding under 'anonymous' *of course* was against my decision to put some of other stories I wrote with my friend *and that were so far kept in my own site* to a payable site SO MUCH that they went ahead, established a site of their own and threatened to publish our stories there if we didn't listen to their deranged demands. They even declared a war on us!

Sounds crazy, huh?

Well, believe me, it is and I would never believe something like this would happen because obviously, someone liked my stories too much O_O Talk about having a life.

But anyway, both with my co-author of many, many stories, we decided we would not be blackmailed and since their demand was to 'immediately put all the removed stories back OR …' we decided to go for the 'OR…' option. I'm not going to be blackmailed with my own stories.

So, I'm taking them down, all of them and that includes here, I'm afraid. I'm not saying I'm going to stop writing NST, I'm just going to have to figure out some other way of getting the story published.

For now, let me express my thanks for your support and your appreciation. There are precious few things that are dearer to me than seeing my readers have fun while reading something I wrote. I promise I will finish NST!

Once again, I'm sorry for my rather drastic move but please, understand, this was necessary.
