Thank you for the interest! Due to technical issues from last summer, this story is unfortunately between cancelled and on hiatus. I still occasionally write the drafts for L'Hiver in the event I pick it up again in the future.


Good story! I really enjoyed everything so far. Victorian-gothic-romance is my jam and you did a good job at it.

This means a lot, thank you <33


I really like this, I really hope you plan to continue this. It's really excellent so far! I also wanted to mention it on a list I made for recommended twine stories if that's alright.

Thank you! I truly appreciate your kind words :D

Don't worry, this story is still ongoing behind the scenes <3
