I'd be fine with that. Also, I've now actually completed my first playthrough even in this state, which bodes very well indeed. I really enjoyed this game, it's got a lot of heart. It was a really cool way to spend a few hours, and I hope to come back to it for another playthrough to see what the other paths bring.
I managed to escape the fire with my character's lives in tact, with help from one of the allies of Madamme.
