An Open Letter of Apology  
I want apologize to all of you out there who fanfics I haven't had a chance to review or that I have fallen behind on. I was brought home recently (and rather embarrassingly) that I don't review nearly as much as I used to or should. Seeing as how I have a following, I should be turning new fans on to other fics and championing the ones I like the most. 

And they were right. It's just that I have little enough time and all of it goes into Little Secrets, which is a lame excuse, I know, but true nonetheless. We both fully intend to get back to reviewing as soon as LS is over. That will free up our non-existant time a little more and Heirs doesn't start until November, which means that we'll only have the oneshots to do. I will get back to reviewing and I'm sorry that I slighted some of you. It wasn't intentional, I promise you. 

And I have to add personally, sean_montgomery, that I love you to bits and pieces and I'm sorry that I haven't been the best friend to you of late. I'm a rotten twin at this point in time, but I'm lucky to have you. Don't think I don't want to spend time with you. Truth is, I don't even wait to spend time with me lately. *hugs*

ETA: Those of you that heard about how my work-night got cut short, I'm mostly well and at home. I have one heck of a splitting headache and still running a bit of a temperature, but I'll okay. The grogginess sucks the worst. Knowing me, I'll be good as new tomorrow morning.

Don't beat yourself up, hon! Believe me, I know how hard it can be to keep up with everything when you've got a massive fic on your own plate. I'm just now finding the time to read more fic here on LJ, but it's still not easy to find all the time I'd like because of all the new fic I'm working on and the Big Edit is keeping me pretty busy.

I know you'll be around when you can. Most folks know that, and we still love you! Take heart in that.

*hugs*

I know all of you will be here, I just feel bad about it. It's not fair for me to have all of you review when I'm not having time to. I feel horrible about it. I'm just hoping that I'll be able to hit everything as soon as we're done with LS.

Sweetheart, don't be so hard on yourself. You're at the conclusion of an epic. We understand that you've been paying attention to the details there, and sometimes that calls for a little sacrifice elsewhere. That doesn't mean we're upset at you, though. It's just how things roll around here. Life comes back to bite all of us eventually.

And I have to add personally, sean_montgomery, that I love you to bits and pieces and I'm sorry that I haven't been the best friend to you of late. I'm a rotten twin at this point in time, but I'm lucky to have you. Don't think I don't want to spend time with you. Truth is, I don't even wait to spend time with me lately.

*winces* This is my fault. I'm a whiny twin, you see - Younger Twin Syndrome. I worry about you, dear, and the only time I really get a chance to hear you is when I'm still on the phone with Anissa when she picks you up... and hearing you tired and bummed all the time gets to me. I just want to try to make you smile, that's all. *gentle hugs*

Awww. *hugs* Abby, it's a very rare moment when you don't make me smile. Most of the time I don't talk because I'm a crab when I'm grumpy and don't want to subject you to it. Remember that, okay? *love*

Awww, hugs to you! Take it easy. Headaches = yuck. Especially ones like that.

I am, admittedly, bad about reviewing - actually...just bad about reading. I read SO SLOW and am often too busy with the school year to read much, let alone review. I am missing so many good stories - including YOURS! because I can't get to it all. But it is understandable that you can't get to everyone.

You have to take care of you, first!

Thanks, Angela. The same is true for me. I really mean to get outside of this journal more often, but LS and RL make it pretty difficult. And as to reviews, you don't have to read it to be my friend. *LOL* If you can, you can. If you can't, you can't. It's not required. :D

And thanks for the advice. I really need to learn to slow down.
