Even if this fanfiction never gets updated again I just wanted to say that this is hands down the best one I've ever come across. Period. I stumbled upon it when it was only a few chapters long and have followed it ever since, and I absolutely adore the depth of each character and the perfect way they interact. I completely understand if you don't update anymore; life tends to do that, but know that I will still check back to re-read this from time to time and it will most likely remain my favorite. This is a true gem of a fanfic and I wish you (and Corvo and Jessamine too) all the best going forward. Here's to you, you magnificent gift to the Dishonored fandom.

Not sure if you're going to get this, from looking at the last update I can probably tell that I'm beating a dead horse (I'm not judging, mind you. I have trouble updating my stuff too).
Suffice to say, I have followed this story for a long time and hold it up as one of those rare examples of genuinely good, no-caveat fanfiction, as well as the pinnacle of Dishonored fanfiction.
While I have no intention to pressure you, and I'd imagine you have other things on your mind, I was wondering if, with the upcoming release of Dishonored 2, you had any intention of continuing this story. I've really enjoyed it so far, and I'm keen to see it go farther, but if it stops here, that's fine too.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read this. Happy Halloween, I suppose.

Love it, but are you eventually going to continue it?

I am totes addicted to Dishonored, to the point that even though I'm already playing it, I still couldn't get enough. Luckily, I found this gem! This fic is so well-written and thought out! Ah, I can't wait for more!

It's a pity that you seem to have dropped this story. I was really looking forward to seeing how Jessamine and Corvo's relationship developed.

OMAIGOTTTT THIS STORY SO GOODDD WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE COMING UP!?
| Kamui-Lyn chapter 25 . 7/13
whaaaat- nooooo! xD oh man, the tension in this chapter is off the charts! And I just happened to catch up with the story when it has the worst cliffhanger!
I wonder how Corvo will react to it all. My guess is he'll be stiff and more formal around her to keep a proper distance between them as his position normally should be.
Im looking forward to what comes next so much! Cannot wait to see! Also, just gotta say, the chapter where they're both racing horses to her retreat was lovely. Such beautiful attention to detail and mannerisms! I love the interaction between the two, how the mood was light, carefree, and fun, for the most part. I could see the bright wide skies, distant mountains, and expansive fields in my mind's eye so well.
Sad that we already know of Jessamine's fate, unless you're gonna switch direction and go AU on us. lol
And with Dishonored 2 coming out next year, keeping an eye on this and replaying the game will hopefully satisfy my overbearing hype. x)
Love the direction you're taking this story, btw, and how everything neither feels too fast nor too slow, even with long time skips here and there between. Keep it up!

Okay, this is one of the best fics I've come across in a long time with so many details and great character presentation. And for a game that doesn't get much love here, its a great addition. I love the interaction between the two in this chapter. Also the idea to make Corvo mute was perfect and it really fits his character. I kinda noticed that my mind now considers this as canon. xD
I believe you asked for the grammar police (lol) to point out any mistakes or misspellings in a previous chapter? There is one I found in this capter when they enter the courtyard. When it speaks of her gait it is misspelled "gate".
Well, thats all I have now. Absolutely love the story. Fav! :)

| Guest chapter 25 . 6/27
Please continue this beautiful story. It has been a long time that this world you created had come to a halt. Please, let this prequel be brought back to life, further exploring the developing bonds of love between Corvo and Jessamine.
Someone who thoroughly loved every minute of reading your story.

Dear Lord I /implore/ you to continue writing! Beautiful, amazing prose that builds an equally amazing story.
| yarani chapter 25 . 6/21

| Draxagon chapter 25 . 6/19
Hey, this is honestly the best fanfic I have ever read - your xharacters are fleshed out and believable, and your langhjage is as captivating as it is carefully chosen. I've never wanted a fanfic finished more - and with the announcement of Dishonored 2 a few days ago, we'll be needing our Dishonored fixes more than ever. Please, please - I beg of you, update.

alright. okay. I just want to tell you, Most Wonderful Author, that I have not used my account in about 5 years, but when someone linked me to this fic I reset my password and everything in order to be able to log in and follow this story like a dog on the hunt because this fic. is. amazing. this fic is AMAZING. the characters, the world, the plot, everything is written so richly it's like the entirety of the Dishonored universe was created by you alone. I am in awe. I am in love. I understand that life may get in the way but if you ever do update this again, please know that it will bring unbelievable joy into my life like these 25 chapters have
