After a little over a year, Fix You has been updated. Check out the chapter here.

I’ve been absent. Very absent. I am aware of that, but I swear I have a good few reasons behind it.
The other question I’ve been getting a lot is… “Are you ever going to finish Fix You?” And to that my lovely readers, the answer is… Continue reading
