    We've all been there. You're enthralled in a story, you've just reached the final chapter/update... and you realize that the story's nowhere close to coming to a close within one chapter/update. You read through, pessimistic about your chances but still hopeful that maybe the author's put something in his AN about going on a temporary hiatus, or a redirect to where the story will be continued in another thread or on another site. But it never happens.

    Stories die all the time. Maybe the author lost interest, maybe he needed a break from writing, maybe the Author died or had some accident that kept him from writing, but it happens. And often, it happens to some of the best stories or quests out there.

    So, QQ, what are the stories you've got bookmarked/favorited in the vain hope that maybe, some day, the author will come back to it?

    For me:
    Magical Girl Noir Quest has been a veritable rollercoaster of hope and disappointment. It revives for a month or so, then dies again shortly after for another five-six months.

    Who I Am was abandoned for ages, b/c the authors had all sorts of bad shit happen to them. They've recently recovered from a pretty serious illness, and updated one of their other stories, so there's always a chance...

    The Game of Champions is, hands-down, the single best Pokemon fic I've ever read.

    How to Think Without Thinking is a sequel to one of the better Naruto fics out there, How to Win Friends, Influence People, and Start Your Very Own Secret Ninja Organization.

    And, of course, just about any quest by our very own Chibi-Reaper, but most notably PACD Quest. (NSFW)

    I quite enjoyed "Scorpion's Disciple", though its author was nice enough to give a summary of what else would have happened had he continued.

    "Shota Quets" was fun, though I didn't participate in it myself.

    "Wishin Aint Easy" on this sit was also very fun.


    Honesty there are tons more stories and quests that died far too early. :(

    Keychain of Creation. At least it had reached a decent break point when the perma-hiatus began. There are certainly worse ways to go out than implying that the entire female cast is playing the highest-stakes game of beach volleyball ever.

    Cosmic Idols on Anonkun. It was one of the few harem quests with a really interesting setting, intriging plot and world buildind and just most of the most colorfull characters I have read aboit. And while he didnt have much characterization I really liked harem protagonist in this one which dosen't happen very often. It is a NSFW quest so I whon't put link here but I thinkI can say that lewd material was also off very good quality.
