A few people have asked me for updates regarding my situation and the status of this story, so this is my response.
The "rewrite" is going well. I've finished writing the first part, although, at this point, I'm still unsure whether it's going to end up being a simple installment to a serial, or if it can stand on its own as a "volume" for a new series.
I've also gone and edited it once over. Because I'm always biased to my work, I think its an improvement to the old, but of course, my opinion is unreliable. That's why I'm here to ask for help. If there is anybody interested in beta-reading the new work, please leave me a pm. I'm not really looking for people to proofread or check for spelling/grammar issues, but rather, for general opinions. I asked this question once, back when I first attempted to get CNW rewritten, but that kind of fell apart, so here's hoping it succeeds again.
As for other news, I'm sad to announce this, but I will have to delete the chapters to this story sometime in the near future. I'm reluctant to do this, especially considering how long this story has been on this site for, but the situation dictates it to be so. I'll probably delete it around the time I get the first volume published.
And lastly, thank you for all the support. Hopefully, I can get this off the ground, and continue the story on a different platform.
UPDATE: thank you for everyone who offered. Unfortunately, I already have enough beta-readers, so all future inquiries will be rejected.
