So for anyone who's friended me on my personal LJ, you probably know this has been finished ages ago. I finished this back in June, but have been editing it pretty much a month to get the end just right. And finally, I can say, that after three years, the first season (and book) of Una Bella Vita is done.
There has been so much that's happened in this finale, I'm still having trouble wrapping my brain around it. This ending wraps up this particular saga, but does leave things open for the future. There are still a lot more secrets, a lot more mysteries, and a war that's not yet over.
This ending was incredibly difficult for me to finish, because I just couldn't know how to finish it. When I did, it was the most incredible feeling. I've been working on this thing for three years, over 200,000+ words, it is at full novel length. I am so so so appreciative of all those that have followed this story for as long as I have. Your words and support is incredible. It is for you all that I write this and will continue to do so in the future.
Because it's not over yet. Not by a long shot. I have already begun season 2, and I hope to finish the first episode of that towards the end of this year, if all goes well. Season 2 should work out to be actually longer than season 1, with a lot more punch, death, intrigue, and the truth of Jaejoong's past will at last be revealed.
I am looking forward to a new story, new characters, and a new season, and I hope you guys do as well.
Thank you so much for reading.
