Thank you all so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the story. It's been an adventure, that's for sure.
So that's the end of A'tro's story. She's come a long way since the first chapter, even if only in my mind. This is not the last you'll be seeing of her, though--there are alternate universes, short fic pieces... The possibilities are endless. In a sense, her story has really only just begun. And there I go trying to sound all profound...
Nox still has a long journey ahead before she can find any kind of closure, as she seeks to discover the nature of the programming in her brain and free herself from its effects. Her continuing adventures in this area will be covered in a sequel, if and when I get around to writing one... I'm taking a break from longfic for the next few weeks, but I think that there needs to be more Nox. Because Nox is awesome.
Thaera will have to deal with trying to stay hidden from the many, many people who want her dead, including several of the readers. She also has her usual issues of guilt over her several very bad decisions. She may appear in the sequel. I haven't decided yet. Heck, I haven't even really decided if I want to do a sequel!
...I mean, I probably will. But I don't want to confirm anything just yet.
Also, some of you might be wondering: Who won, Jadus or the Emperor?
That, my friends, I am not going to say.
I love Thaera, personally, I really adore her struggle, or maybe I just love torturing Chiss agents, I don't know. Certainly no hate here, I look forward to more of her story. (when you get around to it)
