Hello, and thank you! It means a lot to hear that ^^
Haha, yeah, life got in the way big time for me (also, sorry for taking over a year to respond, I just returned to dA). The computer I used to write on got corrupted and lost all my files from that era and I lost motivation. The only pieces I have are a couple paragraphs saved in my st.ash. To be honest, until reading your feedback, I hadn't intended to finish. Mostly out of fear that my writing quality had gone down.
After reading your kind feedback though, I DO want to finish! It'll just take some time for me to figure out where I was going again. I'm also not sure if I'll be able to finish Breaking Ice... but I'll do my best to not leave the story hanging! :D
In the meantime, here are my snippets from st.ash!
And then this last one is the original piece that inspired the story and was my plan for the ending.
It's not much, but hopefully it'll give you an idea of where I was going and how the story will turn out.
Thank you so, so, so much for reaching out to me! I needed to hear this. I'm being assaulted with the warm fuzzy feelings just from reading your comment again ^^ I hope to put the next chapter out soon, and even if you're the only person who reads it, I'll be happy knowing that it's being read by someone who enjoys i :)
