Author's Notes[edit]

あとがき / Author's Notes If you are reading this, thank you for sitting through all of that, I know this is a lot longer than most x_x; *unable to write short stories, apparently* (In my defense, though, this is over 1,000 words shorter than the other one!) This is the prequel to The Spell, which was in October's issue of Shousetsu Bang*Bang. It didn't turn out quite the way I'd have liked, but then again nothing I write ever does ^^; I know there are a few things that might seem a bit off, but I promise you there are no plot holes or impossible events! (I did my research XD) I left some things out in the interests of length.

The point of this atogaki is to include the following timeline. If you are one of the five people who, like me, are always frustrated by stories that jump around in time and would like to know just what happened when and with who, then this is for you. If, however, you're not super-dorky and anal like us, you can just ignore this ^^;
