Authors Notes

Hello, thank you for choosing to spend your time on Catalytic. The Chapters needed to be split in two due to length as a result I will be posting Part 1 of a chapter on Tuesdays and Part 2 on Fridays. Every other Friday will be a database and will have no upload on Tuesday to make sure you get the best possible content I can give. Please don’t forget to vote if you liked it and I encourage you to leave as many comments as you’d like!

Credit to @john_1290 on Wattpad for the absolutely phenomenal cover

And shout out to @IronCinnamonRoll for their help with editing and tightening the grammar of Catalytic.

If you want to contact me I'm best reached on Wattpad, and I have more of the story uploaded there (about 2 chapters and their databases more usually) but I will respond to DM's here on Inkitt as well.
