Author’s Note: First of all, a MASSIVE thank you to my beta inspiredlife, she did a fantastic job at fixing my mistakes and reassuring me that I had done a decent job. This story would not be half as understandable without her. To frellen_rocks my friend and cheerleader, who encouraged me to sign up in the first place and listened to me rant on and on about the plot and my ideas – thanks hun!! A big cheers to my artist emerish who’s done a fabulous job on the art work – I absolutely love it!! And finally, a huge thanks to the mods who organised this, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed taking part! :D

Author's Notes: First of all, I’d like to give a big GIGANTIC thank you! To my beta lost_stray_cat , she is an absolute goddess for putting up with my throwing stories at her out of nowhere, and this story wouldn’t be half as brilliant(and grammatically correct/free of bad spelling) if it wasn’t for her! :D Secondly I’d like to thank frellen_rocks , who has been my bestest friend, cheerleader, hand-holder and shoulder to cry on/rant at – you’re an absolute babe frellen for putting up with my moaning and giving me loads of head-swelling compliments to keep me writing! A giant GIANT thank you to jhava , my artist, who created one of the most spectacular pieces I’ve seen – I literally couldn’t imagine a better piece of art to accompany my story, they were made for each other! I wanna give a big shout out to all the peeps at paperpushers, who have been a great source of inspiration and motivation when I was ready to give up! I’d also like to thank all my non-LJ friends, who had to put up with MONTHS of my moaning, procrastination and blabbering about Merlin! Lastly, I’d like to give a giant thank you to the mods who organised this wonderful fest, you people are absolute stars!!
This story was both a joy and a PAIN to write – I’ve never actually managed to get such a large story written in such a short space of time (I thought I was nearly done at 17,000 words and would just about scrape the 20,000 mark when it just suddenly BLEW up with only 2 weeks to go, leaving me a quivering mess of a writer), and such a personal one too (being Irish and catholic meant that a lot of my personal feelings and opinions ended up in this in one way or another), and I am so glad I decided to take part! This story is quite a lot like life – mostly serious with moments of crack thrown in (the goldfish wake is taken from a RL experience), as I’m unable to write purely in one sort of genre.
Oh and if anyone's interested, Dóchas is the Irish for Hope.
Right, sorry to take up your time! Please read, and I hope you enjoy my story! :D
