First, to "Catnip Pete and the Suricata Symbol":
I am working on the final piece to the story. My apologies it has taken so long, but I have been inundated with an inordinate amount of work, both in the actual sense, and for my education. Being a graduate student who teaches means I don't have nearly as much free time as I would like for writing, and this is a particularly difficult story because of how the pieces need to come together so the ending makes sense. If you have no idea what I'm talking about--either because you're new or you simply missed it--you can learn a bit more about this here and here. It's a story I'm working on, the first parts of which I put up to help raise funds for Haiti (the third part will be for that project as well. I hope to have part three finished and posted by this weekend, but I am working on a paper that I am presenting next week, so we'll see.
