Executive Decision · 7:15pm
Hey there, sorry to disappoint, but this is actually 2dextreem, Loyal's editor and co-writer of all your favorite stories.
I've logged on to her account today to exercise a little executive oversight on some of the projects we have going on. It's been three weeks since the last time she's logged in, and over a month since I've been able to get in contact with her on Skype. Not too unusual, given how the past few years have gone, but I'm about at the end of my patience with how stagnant everything has become.
Guys, I love Loyal's stories as much as you all, if not more. Some of the best fun I've had with this fandom has been being able to flex my imagination and bring entertainment to the fans of these crossovers. Firstly, don't panic; I don't plan on quitting, and I'm sure neither does Loyal. But it's with a heavy heart that I feel like I must do something that's been a long time coming.
As of today, I am officially declaring on Loyal's behalf that all currently in-progress stories are being put on HIATUS. Yes, that includes Mass Effect: Shades of Twilight. While the next chapter is technically in development, progress has been at a near standstill for months and shows no sign of improving until Loyal sorts her life out. I'm doing this without her blessing, but I feel like she would agree it has to be done, and I'm just the one who has to do it for her. These feel like as much my stories as hers at this point, and I would rather definitively put a cap on them and shove them in the freezer than leave them out to stagnate while the fans hold out hope that they will see an update any time soon.
So... yeah. Doctor Whooves, Sly, and Mass Effect are going away for a little while. Officially. I honestly can't tell you when they will be back, but not for the foreseeable future. If anyone has any questions, you can comment here or PM me directly. Hopefully, this will all be over soon and we can get back to providing closure to all of those stories you're all waiting to see. (Seriously guys, ME3: Harmony for all is gonna be so good.)
But I have to be honest... I'm not holding my breath.
