Just finished reading all of these, it's pretty beautiful, and I find the setting really intriguing! Excited to see where you're going with this. I really enjoy the sparse use of colour amid the general greyscale, it creates some brilliant contrasts. The use of your acrylic paintings in the backgrounds is a fantastic idea, I'm glad I read all of the descriptions too or I might have missed that! (Nice Poe reference with "Nevermore" by the way.) The line "I wish he would leave me behind, I am only dragging him down" really gets to me, I relate to that way more than I'd like to admit.
Very nicely done over all, like I said, I'm looking forward to seeing where you're taking this. I'm curious about you saying you plan to redo everything though, are you planning a software change or something like that which would justify going over everything again? Because I think it looks really nice, and it's definitely got me hooked. I'd also really love to see a print version of this when it's all done, I think that would be awesome!
