Well, I thought that copy-and-paste formatting glitch in @Wattpad was fixed and so I made some updates. But it looks like I was wrong. While the paragraph breaks have been restored, the emphasis (italics, etc.) have not. That's too bad. I rely on italics heavily (especially for character thoughts) and dread the idea of having to go in and make those manually. 
      So... I may have to pull some chapters again, and that would be catastrophic to the story. If it doesn't get fixed soon, I may have to pull Gen entirely, and that would make me very, very sad.
All right! Looks like the formatting glitch on Wattpad has been corrected, so, as promised, I have posted Chapter 18 of Gen. More soon. Enjoy, and thanks for reading! -H.S.
Sorry, fans, but I had to delete chapters 16 and 17 of Gen, book 4 of my Water Worlds SciFi Adventure series. 
      For some reason, #Wattpad no longer supports formatting in copy-and-paste, and when I went to make changes recently, the result was one, long unformatted run-on paragraph. I can't let people read my story this way.
      I'll republish as soon as they fix it. If they fix it. And then, as a thank-you for understanding, I'll post never-before-seen chapter 18, for those of you who have asked. :
