I Guess This Is the Part Where I Promise Not To Grouse Anymore...  
and just finish LS when it's time. We're almost done with this Arc and we have one last three chapter epilogue. The only question becomes, since it seems to be running too long for some fans, I put a question to you:


ETA: Stupid poll set-up isn't wanting to work so just reply in comments. After three re-dos, I give up!

AETA: Just for the record, this isn't about how many reviews we recieve. I know that some of you aren't comfortable with leaving them or are unsure what to say. Don't think you're being scolded in the least. I love you, reviews or no reviews. It's more about knowing if we've gone on too long. There is still more to come, but I know alot of people were in this for the action, so this is just letting both of us touch base with you. All is well! *hugs and kisses*

Shall we continue on until we reach our planned ending, which might finish it out at 80 chapters or skip the Christmas re-write and go straight to the end after chapter 70? 

Just Go Ahead And End It! Where It Is! What's With This Freakin' Huge Epic? ;) 

Do what you planned, but hurry up and finish! 

Take you time and do what you had planned; I've been waiting for this. 

I'm fine with skipping 'Christmas with the Kents' and going to the finale.

 You're welcome to post anonymously if you like. I'm just curious. I'm still more than happy to continue the last twelve chapters I have planned and close it out with a bang. In the end, I'm happy with the story and the journey it's taken. Especially since only we know we're going to do in the end. :)

I hope my answer isn't confusing...

I think you should write what you want to write, and to hell with the complainers (like you know who). I love LS, and it can go on for as long as you write it.

On the other hand, I am all about to-the-point in my own writing. I am vicious about it in my own stuff, and I will completely leave out anything that is not absolutely necessary to the end game.

That being said, there are many readers who like the same thing when they read, and don't enjoy what they may view as "detours" to the mainline plot. My stories, because of my spareness, instead get the "ZOMG, are you going to continue this forever and ever!!11!!" kind of review, when I have absolutely no intention.

In summary: you can't please them all.
