"Gifts of wandering ice" updates on Mondays and Fridays

Paypal no longer works in my country, so I can't get money from Ko-fi, Gumroad, ComicAd, and Patreon (found a temporaty solution through Payoneer, no idea how long it will hold, though). Until something changes for the better, I'll have to go with replacements.
I made a page on Boosty. It accepts Paypal and all cards.
For a one-time donation like Ko-fi, just buy this post (no registration needed).
To get an ebook, buy one of these posts (the downloads are inside): Cold ObsidianGWI1GWI2Ice gift
For monthly support, subscribe to my Boosty page. Everything works the same as on Patreon.

You don't have to ask Ksenya twice: her best friend is down there!

+ I have a little announcement to make: I'm going to skip the next two updates: Dec, 31 and Jan, 3.
Short story: holidays and a ton of stress they'll bring.
We're going to celebrate New Year and my Birthday. It means endless shopping, cooking, and dishwashing. Sigh...

Long story. In Russia (where I live) we don't celebrate Christmas. Well, ultra-religious folks do (on Jan, 7) but the majority of the population don't. The tradition is pretty much dead. Instead, our New Year has all the Christmas attributes minus religion. We decorate a New Year tree, put presents under it, and there is Grandpa Frost who kids believe brings them presents. New Year is the biggest holiday of the year in Russia. It's noisy, messy, expensive - an introvert's nightmare! And damn it ate my birthday. My birthday is on Jan, 1... No wonder that I hate both those holidays with passion :/ Alas, I can't skip them, because of my family. Well, I hope they will be over soon and I'll get back to normal life. Maybe the little hiatus will even do me some good. I feel so depressed and burnt out it's hard to describe.

Dear readers, please, stay with me. I'll be back soon.
