sweats I'm sort of nervous I'm new to everything so ahahaahaa
mostly just reporting progress on here!! ;w;



Longitude is a story of a long distance relationship, which sort of focuses on the
importance of communication and how delicate relationships are in general.

Ivan, an introverted, slightly anti-social and well pampered college student,
who is going to study abroad in the UK for a term and for the first time in his life,
he has take care of himself. With her boyfriend overseas, Abigail becomes more and more
possessive of her boyfriend, afraid that she will lose Ivan due to the distance between
them (geographically) and starts pestering Ivan with more messages and more demands than before.

How will the relationship go? Nobody knows I’m terrible at sticking to my plans lmao //RUNS
There will be a total of 3 endings (tentative) and the story will be relatively short. (~15-20mins)
also... longitude//solitude get it? :'DDD
