WELL, I'M BACK. WE'RE BACK. OHH BOY. I think I'm having second thoughts already.

Everything I Know is back up. Rewritten, looking absolutely nothing like it did before, but really the same, I swear. Everything's a bit more complex now, that's all. The tournament, the war, the people. First chapter should be up before the week's over, though, so that will be familiar material. It'll be like deja-vu, except... not, I guess. Quasi-deja-vu, then.

In reply to all... pleas? I don't know what else to call them, you crazy lot, that's what they are. But in reponse to everyone that asked for Tom Riddle to remain the same: OF COURSE NOT. Of course he won't change. Of course he won't undergo massive personality rearranging. I don't think he'll have changed a bit, to be honest. All the characters will have changed, but it's because they'll be in different situations than they were in the previous version, so we'll see different aspects of them that we may not have before.

In short, nothing major has changed. This rewriting was mostly because I couldn't stand my old writing, because I'm neurotic like that, but also because it made me cringe when I read the first few chapters. If there are changes, they were made for the better, or at least that's my hope.

Posting will be on both livejournal and FF.net, and email alerts will be sent to anyone that wants them. It's not a big problem. :)

There are too many names to thank, and I have to find them all anyway, so for now, thank you to everyone. To everyone that left a comment or review, and to those that emailed me and guilted me into rewriting at last. Thank you for the emails, the comments, and the reviews. I find it absolutely insane that I still had an email yesterday. (It was nice, though, so thanks to you who wrote it.) It means a lot to me that people I don't even know, readers, would take the time to say all they did, and to write all they did... just for a story. I honestly did not know this one story meant anything to anyone; I thought that after I stopped posting, and after the intial barrage of replies, that people would find other stories and forget about this completely. But they haven't, and that is absolutely amazing. You guys are amazing.

And really, really good at guilting me into writing.

But thank you for all you guys have done, and remember, all this? It's all you. This rewrite is dedicated to you guys.
