Well, just now, reading an old post of yours about the dedication page going unused, for some reason, felt very... um, yeah, well.

But, the first two times...

I cried about Taura. And Roic remembering pleading with her. And her not wanting to wake up without her friends.

And the drabbles. Cordelia's, in particular. And Ivan's.

And now I'm tearing up again, I hope you know.

Sorry to have taken so long to see this! O:(
