I couldn’t fit all I wanted to say in the comments but this book is so damn good. Wattpad has to turn it into a physical books. The imagery, plot twists, love triangles, and hidden meanings are soo good. I really loved this book and it’s definitely going into my Favs playlist. (Yes, I have a playlist full of my favorite Wattpad stories.) This author is truly amazing.

@Shejustimagines Thank you so much!! I'm so glad you enjoyed the book <3

Don't be alarmed/too excited when I post a new book later today in a strange language you don't understand. It's not DTOD's sequel (yet) and I haven't had a stroke (yet) it's just my attempt at translating my book in French lmao

HappyCoati

@LVann26 thank you so much!! ❤️ I hope the French like DTaD as much as you all enjoyed the og!

@HappyCoati So great that you'll have your book in two languages! ❤️ I applaud you and am happy for French readers that will now be able to enjoy DTOD too, even as I greatly look forward to the sequel!!

@Bstarroyer I am working on the sequel as well, don't worry! I'm waiting until I have a strong backlog of chapters to start posting. Translating takes me a lot less effort than writing brand-new chapters, with all the plotting, planning and wording choices I need to make. (French is my first language, too!) So you can get an idea, in the time it takes me to write one new chapter, I was able to translate eight chapters to French! So no worries, I'm not forgetting about the first readers 
            
            I did read your ideas (and they're great!!) but didn't answer so I wouldn't spoil anything, sorry if you felt like I was ignoring you, that was not my intention <3

I might drop the title and first few lines of DTOD's sequel on my Discord server. Might.

a l'aiiiide je recherche des francophones! J'essaie de traduire mon livre en anglais, mais je sais pas si mon style d'écriture est "digestible", du coup j'aimerais bien savoir si deux ou trois personnes peuvent lire quelques chapitres et me dire si je suis sur la bonne voie! merci d'avance <3
          
          translation here so non-french speakers are not too confused: I'm looking for French speakers to beta-read the first few chapters of DTOD (in French) to check whether my writing style is good enough or if I need to tweak a few things. If you needed this translation you might not be much help but don't worry i still love you
          
          fun fact, French is my first language. even more fun fact, I still find it easier to write in English. Written French is very different from spoken French and it feels so unnatural to write it. I'm also struggling to find relevant cultural references. idk why i'm doing this to myself

Thanks for the follow. I'm a HUGE Pedro Pascal fan, if you couldn't tell lol. Can't wait to read your book.

HappyCoati

@MDjarin17 no worries! I think most of my readers are here for Pedro Pascal so I wouldn't say it's a problem, but it's up to you! ☺️

@HappyCoati No problem! And sorry for the confusion, I can remove it from the fanfiction list if you'd like. =)

And with this final chapter, Drugs, Treasons and Other Demons is finally complete!
          
          I see some of you are already reading and commenting, which fills my heart with both joy and dread, but I just wanted to take the time to thank you all
          
          This is probably my biggest achievement so far: Two years, 360k words (and 102k reads!) later, I've finished my first novel. I've been writing ever since I could type on a keyboard, started dozens upon dozens of stories and never finished a single one.
          
          Without all those of you who showed up every week to read, leave votes and comments, I would have never gotten so far. You guys kept me going through the worst periods of writers' block, motivating me with all your lovely words and reactions to my characters, cliffhangers and cruel plot twists, and now here we are. It's finished!
          
          Before you shout at me, yes there is a sequel planned, so this is not exactly where things end, but although DTOD is about four times longer than a regular novel, this felt like the right spot to end the book and take a step back. I'll be taking a break for a few months and I'll be back with some more cliffhangers to torment your soul <3 
          
          Thanks to all those who've read the book, those who've been there since the very beginning to support me, those who binged the whole thing in 36 hours, and all those who'll sooner or later find DTOD in a dark corner of Wattpad and join the fun. I love you all so much <3
          
          see y'all soon after my (well deserved) vacation

@Spaghet667 thank you so much!! ❤️ now it's your turn bc i'm dying to see what happens!!

@MummyCoati Thank you for being the best Mum ever and always believing in me <3 even when I started writing stories about wild ponies while listening to Michel Sardou at full volume. 
            I know how you feel <3 I want to tell every single person I meet that I've written a book, and it's so amazing, and they should totally read it... But I know the raunchiest bits are not for everybody!! It's sweet Granny wants to read it, but I don't think this is the kind of novel she'd enjoy... lol 
            I'm proud to be your daughter <3 love you so much
