  1. Thanks again to Shahula for choosing my little story to rec!

    I posted it daily in January and had a strong, loyal following, but you've helped give it a second wind! I've received several wonderful reviews recently.

    kiTT :)

  2. I first read Volition a while ago when I saw some interview that AngstGoddess003,said it was her favorite fan-fiction story of all time. IT. DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT.

    Volition in an incredible journey of love, passion, strength of character and soul. It did what so many stories fail to do, it made me see the world from a different angle and then question my own morals and ethics. I think I may read it again :)

    If you haven't read it, you are truly missing out.
