Paypal and Payoneer no longer work in my country, so I can't get money from Ko-fi, Gumroad, Buymeacoffe and ComicAd (the ad banners here).
The only tip jar I have left is Boosty. It accepts Paypal, all cards, any currency, then it converts it into rubles and sends to me. Boosty works the same way as Patreon + accepts one-time donations like Ko-fi and allows selling ebooks.

And now we know what's in Nolan's backpack. A treasure definitely worth carrying a heavy load up the mountain while you're terminally ill. Of course, it's not all: there are even more tracers and other precious things inside Nolan's ship but Faith doesn't need to know that.

I don't remember whether I mentioned it before: the symbol I used to represent E.L.I.E. organisation is an alchemic symbol of eternal life. But because of its history, to the old Norns of this settlement it must seem as tainted and evil as swastika is to us. Yet the gift Nolan offers is precious, no one can deny that.


I still wonder what exactly he thinks she could do for him. Freezing him is the only option besides death. All the bargaining in the world can't fix the fact that she doesn't have the means to cure him.

You'll see soon. There is an option indeed and he's getting to it.

It's kind of unnerving in a way I can't pin down how good at scheming he is, especially for his age. There's something kinda bloodless about it (which fits with what we've seen of his cultural background and upbringing).

He is good, especially for his puny age of 30. He had a good teacher, after all. The only problem here is that he's dealing with a completely new situation here, outside the society he grew up in.
