Um, wow. I normally say "thank you" here, and I AM still thankful, but - I'm REALLY sorry, you guys! I didn't expect it to take me this long. Real life completely kicked my ass, what with the job and planning to move eleven hours away in a couple of months and... well, I have my excuses, but I really am so sorry. *sweatdrop* Forgive me? You still love me, right?

Thank you to the usual suspects, and so, so sorry for lack of an update last week. I was in California - the opposite coast from where I normally am - to celebrate my birthday. I hope you guys won't hold it against me.

Also, if anyone was waiting to read "Midnight Confessions" (the one-sided Elicia/Al fic I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] fma_fuh_q) for fear of being spoiled, that story takes place right around the same time as this chapter, so no fear of being spoiled anymore. You can find it here.

[livejournal.com profile] evil_little_dog did some on-the-fly beta for this, and for that, I thank her. I, unfortunately, dragged my feet entirely too long for proper beta, so anything that sucks in this chapter is all my fault. The betas are off the hook. Sorry for the delay. Real Life: 8, Megs: 0.

Thanks as always to everyone. <3 It's good to know you're reading.

You may have noticed that the final chapter count has been reduced. This is because I decided to shave down a lot of the 'filler' material and stick to the main plot, despite my love for simply writing these two in coupley situations. I figured I can satisfy myself with one-shots set within the universe if I want to; in the meantime, the storyline meanders a little less.

Many thanks to my betas, whose suggestions I actually remembered to incorporate this time, unlike the last chapter. *blush* Thanks to all the readers as well for being patient even when I suck at answering comments. It makes me unbelievably happy that you comment at all.

Also, I'm going to make an announcement about the future of this fic: Up until now, a chapter has been posted every week, and each chapter has been an average length of 2000 words. Beginning with Chapter 25, this will all change. Due to real-life circumstances that sadly necessitate this, I will begin posting one chapter every two weeks instead. To make this up to you, at least a little, the new average word-length for the chapters is somewhere around 3000. (We'll put it this way: 25 and 26 are both over 3200 words apiece and Ch 27 is shaping up similarly.)

Here's hoping you stick with me.

Thank you again, everyone. No, really. :) I mean it.

I am posting one chapter every Sunday night. Previous chapters (and other related stories) can be found here.

You might notice that I now have a tentative number of total chapters for the story. This is because I actually wrote out a rough outline last night, chapter by chapter. I quake at the thought. For the record, in case anybody's curious, Chapters One through Twenty-One of this fic are 46,643 words long. With twenty-four chapters left after that, it's anyone's guess how long this thing will be. *cries* Are you guys SURE you want to finish this story? *laugh*

ALSO!! Six points (and a story 'contest' opportunity) to the first person who tells me why, exactly, I used the chapter title I did. *giggles*

This is manga-verse, with every chapter yet released and scanlated as fair game for spoilers and many liberties taken as far as speculation about the future. If you want to know how Al got his body back, Yet Gentle and The Frost of Awakening can be considered my default answer to that question for now at least.

Author's Notes: For my March claim at [livejournal.com profile] fma_fuh_q. This is set inside my Some Other Beginning universe, about five years down the road from where we currently are. That makes Elicia thirteen, Al twenty-four. If you absolutely DON'T want to be spoiled, don't read this. But there isn't much in the way of spoiling the main Roy and Al story.
