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.

Oh, also, just so it isn't doom and gloom all over, I think I'll share this with some ME peeps who might appreciate the humor in it. People are still making amazing things like this, all the time, and that's a nice thought to hold onto even in such a frustrating situation.

>>2346154 And yet…that seems extreme, to me. I perfectly understand why, of course (really, it's a long story…and you think six months is a long time, heh). And yet, to just…toss away everything you've been building up for for years and say "Oh well, moving on," especially when your partner isn't here…Well, no one can blame you for it, that's not what I mean. Surely there are other options to consider? Have you looked into a ghostwriter? I can't help but note, "…I have no desire to continue her stories purely on my own." Or maybe I shouldn't read into that and it feels a little…icky to hand off the project to a different writer, even temporarily. If nothing else, you could always grab a couple of new writers and start up a short series of sidestories, to keep you busy. Honestly, I'm sorry for prying where I probably shouldn't, but it honestly just breaks my heart to imagine that all the work you two have done comes down to…this, and you're left holding the pieces. I've been in that position and it sucks, but you both have so many supportive fans here, I want to think there's something that can be done, for this to work out for you both. I hope whatever happened, Loyal is happy and healthy wherever she is, but you're here and so are we and we want to help.

It appears that no.

Do what you think is best.

>>2346154 So nothing from Loyal?

I know. Honestly... I'm debating whether to wait indefinitely or at least try to provide some closure for people. We have a work in progress document for the next chapter, with about 1/5 fully written and ready to go, and the rest a patchwork of notes and outlines. Beyond that, I know the broad strokes of the next few arcs as well as the plot-line for ME3: Harmony for All. It's just, with Loyal dropping off the face of the earth, I have no desire to continue her stories purely on my own. It just doesn't feel right.

I think I'm willing to wait until a full year has gone by with nary a peep. After that, I'll assume she's gone forever (because I refuse to believe she would abandon her babies) and release all of the information I know about where her stories were headed.
