Hey there. Sorry for the hiatus if you're somehow still interested in TUW. Anyway, I've decided to do a complete rewrite.
If you're a new reader, you should totally go read the improved edition instead.
The beginning of the novel will be quite similar, but with better dialogue, details, characters and whatnot. Eventually, expect the story to take a different route as in this novel. For example (minor spoiler here): Alan won't be falling into the abyss.
Eh. So... I still need like fifty more characters before I can post this 'chapter'. Have I written enough? I think I did. Yeah.
