Aaah this is so sweet of you! Thank you so much!! >_<
I'm sorry for taking a few days to reply - this was such a long and kind message that I wasn't really sure what to say, haha n_n;;
I'm glad you enjoyed the story so much! Writing and coding something this huge was quite a challenge, so I'm glad it paid off in some small way, and a few people liked it!
I'm also really glad you liked Rhea! I was worried people would find her boring, since maybe she's a bit passive at times (though I tried to make her stand up for herself when the story called for it too haha). I like her a lot too, and I think she's a sweetheart u///u
Val & Luca are also very easily my favourite LIs, too. I think they are probably most people's favourites, haha. I wonder if my bias for these two characters was too evident when I wrote the story...
Anyway, thank you so much! Reading this comment really made my day! <3 <3 <3
