Happy Easter Monday everyone! :)

Super sorry about the late update, I did *not* expect it to take as long as it did :'D I forgot that it takes me some time to flat new characters with outfits like Zion and Ruthford, ha, ha... OTL

Anywho, this is an update that, yet again, dredges up a lot of older material so it's breadcrumb trail time again!

* Seia, Kylie, Rince, Ruthford and Zion are all originally from the Lethian Guild HQ Jihan outskirts branch.
* The Raiz raised some hackles between Fel and Nines by declaring Lari Oasis a neutral zone, causing acts of rebellion from the Danrir in Karat.
* Seia and Ophelia are indeed on their way to Aen Luce, where 'the truce talks' between Fel and Nines are apparently to take place...
* As for what Zion's mumbling about, it's not strictly important to the plot but... here you go XD;

Alright, that's it for today's update! See you guys on the next one, which may not be on Thursday - I'll be sure to drop a note here though, if the update is delayed again. Sorry for the sparse updates this month so far. :'D

Thanks for reading, and have a marvellous start to your week <3

Hey folks, so the next page is underway but... because it's #500, I kind of want to update it alongside a small something-something. But I still need a bit more time to prep it. :'D So sorry guys, no update on Thursday - but I'll try my utmost to update over the weekend if I can!

Hey folks, I'm so sorry... I have a terrible confession to make. I'm... I'm addicted to Persona 5... T_T I've been playing it all weekend instead of paging, like a horrible human being, but it's... it's so good! OTL

I have this unfortunate habit of - once I get into a game - playing it like a maniac until I actually finish it. It's why I've been sort of avoiding videogames that aren't handhelds for a while, because handhelds I can finish off faster by playing it while commuting... but so many people were talking about Persona 5, I got curious, and oh man am I a cat that got wrecked for that curiosity :'DDD

So, uh, I'm so sorry but I just want to get this game out of my system as fast as I possibly can, so please give me a week? ;;;; I'm really really sorry for being so weak... please forgive me T_T

Strip #500 will be up on Monday, 24th April 1st May* :'D (It's 50% done right now.)

*Sorry guys, I must have been sleep-deprived and wrote the wrong date like a moron :'DDD

Seia is quite the story maker there to get Ophelia out of hot water there, and that glare he gives Zion! XD
Lukkai 18th Apr 2017, 8:11 AM edit delete reply
But it's the best kind of story.

It's short. Easy to remember. Perfectly plausible and impossible for the other two to check without several days or even weeks of travel.

*lol* Seia is hard to forget - and maybe even to forgive - something concerning family...

Uh, Seia, why the lie???

I guess I was right about the Lapia Oak needing to pee... lol

Hrm, would they insist on taking custody of his prisoner? Or worse...?
SunnySideUpSmile 18th Apr 2017, 12:22 AM edit delete reply
lol Poor Zion. He looks pretty faced. Frightened is not exactly the word I'd use.

But Seia's face in that 5th panel scared me too. :')

Answers her question from previous of why it didn't work out then.
Proxy170 18th Apr 2017, 4:33 AM edit delete reply
hahaha Zion is hilarious XD that face at the end has me in stitches!

And lucky she didn't see that coming! But if he's hiding her secret, he's hiding his secret of zombie-ness...which means he can't get help just yet D:

Welp, Ophelia, welcome to the wonderful world of "YOU OWE ME BIG TIME".

Take a seat, girl... yer gonna be here a while...
Kattapuss 18th Apr 2017, 7:51 AM edit delete reply
Hmmm, interesting move, Seia.
Do Seia and Zion actually get along, though? Now I'm confused and also curious and also Zion's face in that last panel is amazing xDD
Lukkai 18th Apr 2017, 8:08 AM edit delete reply
I think they get along okay. But Seia will not tolerate any kind of talk about the ladies from him. Especially not this kind.
CiciEnixa 18th Apr 2017, 8:13 AM edit delete reply
I'd like to think their situation is akin to "Seia Dad is forever displeased and wishes death upon Flirty Shameless Boi who broke Kylie Daughter's poor kokoro" even though as I understand, Kylie and Zion broke up on peaceful terms XD

Ya gotta protect family ;P
Kattapuss 21st Apr 2017, 12:54 AM edit delete reply
@Cici: Lol that sounds pretty accurate, especially since it's Seia we're talking about xDD
kaiki83 18th Apr 2017, 9:36 AM edit delete reply
Probably not since Zion dated Kylie and Seia will obviously will never let it go...
CiciEnixa 18th Apr 2017, 8:18 AM edit delete reply
Poor Zion, so cute, so bullied by Seia Dad XDDD

Seia defended Ophelia so smoothly, I don't even think it was impromptu XD Way to go, Seia!

Zion's statement regarding being from Karat... so the Lethian Knights Guild recruit all over the world, or are there areas that they can't recruit and there will be sad future Lethian Knights that will never know they can become Lethian Knights? ... I guess the Holy Capital might count but like, large areas?

So what Kylie really meant in the side story is:

Seia is an absolute nutbag who froze the last guy I dared to date just because I was a tiny bit upset about a pretty minor issue. I could try dating again, but I'm not really attracted to popsicles. Animals are just easier that way.

Hahaha poor Zion :D Seia you darn creepy man, you :D
KAM 18th Apr 2017, 5:04 PM edit delete reply
Ah, so that's Kylie's ex.

Seia used Glare. It is super effective!
Lukkai 20th Apr 2017, 10:34 PM edit delete reply
A little something-something, huh? Now I'm intrigued.
mjkj 21st Apr 2017, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
No, not a little - a small (do not mess with the awesome alliteration...) =P

No, I am not intrigued... but rather looking forward to it in excitement... =D

Lukkai 23rd Apr 2017, 12:03 PM edit delete reply
But it's something-something.

Don't mind if I do!

Awwww... Rufi *hugs*

*is relieved* great to hear you are doing fine...

Well, it gets like this sometimes - do not worry... you need to wind down sometimes, too.

Thank you for keeping us posted.

(...and what is that persona 5???)

Gladewalker 24th Apr 2017, 6:40 PM edit delete reply
Persona 5 is a game; I've only seen screenshots but I think it's an Action RPG game.
Proxy170 25th Apr 2017, 11:51 PM edit delete reply
A game that has been destroying my fave comics' update schedules T___T lol
Lukkai 26th Apr 2017, 10:13 AM edit delete reply
Thinking back at how I reacted after first getting my hands on Fallout 4...

Yeaaah... not much ground for me to judge you. ;)
