Thank you for taking this journey with me! This has been the first novel I have ever finished, even if it is a fanfiction of the one book that has impacted me so much through the years. It started out merely as a series of headcanons and drabbles that wondered if a happy ending could exist for these characters if they lived in a more modern era and before I knew it, it grew and expanded into a world of its own.
I have read and reread the original works to ensure the characters were kept as canonical as possible even in situations that they could have never encountered in the original canon. In writing this, I am still attempting to learn my own unique writing style and voice and through the summer, this story will be going through a massive editing run, so if you enjoyed it, please feel free to come back once it has been polished!
But for now, I hope you enjoyed it, and be on the lookout for Part II which will have us delving more into the life of the enigmatic Kearns and stumbling alongside the newly adopted Will Henry and his guardian. If you read the original draft of that one, the story will be similar, but exceedingly different so I am excited for the new tale as much as you all!
