I am writing this through tears, so I will be brief for now and return soon with a longer post that covers things and points the way toward what comes next.

For now, I want to say thank you to every single person who has ever read this series over the 10-years. Every reader, critic, fan, gamer, patron, friend, and person out there in the internet. Thank you for laughing, crying, and raging at the story of this group of friends.

Thank you, Matt. You have been my best friend, moderator, and in the later years, the true inspiration for Brett Tucker and the amazing man he became. You have seen me at rock bottom, pulled me up, and stood as the first line of defense against every troll who dared to enter the comments. The world needs more people like you, Matt, and I am so happy to call you brother.

Thank you, Duane for being the inspiration for Sam’s therapist. You are an amazing human being and when I started writing the end, I knew you would be the person in the chair across from Sam (Me). You lift up everyone around you with kindness, wisdom, and creativity. Thank you for being you.

Thank you all so much for being here with me. I will be back soon to tell a new story.
