I doubt anyone actually read the backwards part, but that's okay. Even if it did take me longer than it should have. *cries a lil bit*

    Would you like me to notify you of new chapters for The Illusion Of Control? You've been well invested in the story, so I was just wondering. (Chapter 11 is out btw :P)

    *me being lazy and only reading the italics but then actually reading the message box* hey, i should probably read the backwards parts too, seems fun! what you wrote about poetry is totally accurate. lines 12-the end *chefs kiss* this really is an interesting way to read/write poetry! can't imagine how long it must've taken you though... my condolences. love this <3
