Hey guys, happy Wednesday!

Sorry, not much time to write much today. Hope you enjoy today's update, it marks the end of this scene and we open up to a new day next Monday. See you on Friday with Friday Flare!

rufiangel 22nd Apr 2016, 4:46 PM edit delete

No perma-link to Friday Flare on the website yet, please forgive me :'D It'll be there one day, hopefully sooner than later! I answered a personal question today, I hope you guys don't mind.

You are free to submit pairing doodle requests and Q&A through the Google form~ Thanks so much for all the questions you guys submitted already. X3

If you're reading this, I guess I should just add a small note that I'm thinking about not doing one update so I can actually spend the time updating the website. The general template I want to change, as well as update parts of the party and races pages, and also make a new page for new readers. It's all stuff I keep meaning to do but never have the time to do, so I think I need to sacrifice a page to do it. And sorry for being so bad with comments the past few days, it's been a busy week. >_<

Have a great weekend, folks, and I'll see you on Monday!

Sorry guys, I'm missing Monday's update entirely today. (You can read the post I made on Facebook for more details if you want!) There's just no way I can finish it on time.

I'll probably update on Wednesday and Friday this week instead of the normal schedule, please forgive me for the lapse. u_u;;

Oh, poor Ophie has bad dreams...

...what is that purging business she is dreamtalking about???

I hope she will keep back anything that would anger Seia...

rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 3:32 PM edit delete reply
'Poor Ophie'? XD;

She and Seia are going to get along like best buddies, of course. She only murdered one of guild members. :P

Yikes, this is no good. Let's just hope this don't end with them stabbing each other!
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 3:33 PM edit delete reply
Lol Azure! XD; I was thinking that would be exactly what everyone would look forward to! Readers had such fun watching them try to kill each other the last chapter after all XD

Oh, but she is so totally sore about losing XDDD

You need a certain level of bravery to attempt to shake Seia, especially when you're clearly so outclassed :,D I'm sorry, Ophelia, that was just not the right move atm.

Though that last bit does seem to confirm the Ice Lethian eradication going on. Are they really just doing it because of orders or do they legit believe they're a threat? Hm...
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 3:40 PM edit delete reply
Ophelia is definitely brave to have even challenged Seia in the first place. XD;

Hmm, legit believe they're a threat... to what? ;)
Headgamer 20th Apr 2016, 8:27 PM edit delete reply
We already knew they were wiping out the ice Lethians, but the "mindless pawn" thing is interesting. I'm sure she was feed all sorts of propaganda to justify this or that.
Guest 21st Apr 2016, 2:31 AM edit delete reply

Though, yeah' that's totes possible.
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 3:45 PM edit delete reply
Anything is possible, Guest! ;)
Lukkai 25th Apr 2016, 7:44 AM edit delete reply
I wonder: What if she's just been fed propaganda? And what if she runs across new information that makes the world that propaganda constructed crashing down around her?
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 3:46 PM edit delete reply
I'm interested to know what kind of propaganda you guys think she's been fed! XD;
Lukkai 27th Apr 2016, 9:12 AM edit delete reply
I could try and start with a few possible stories. But before I do, I'll warn you that I once as a player helped built up a nation of a coalition of races in one of our scifi games. And built up a secret service that, while openly acting as the secret service of the nation in terms of counter-espionage and such, also kept a close surveillance on pretty much all citizens (especially of some of the races, it made sense in context), while also using the media and education system to slowly and subconsciously insert certain values and morales in the various societies (again it made sense to do that in context).

Long story short: I can think of some rather wicked things for propaganda if I want to. And if I do and write them here, it will involve walls of text.
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 3:45 PM edit delete reply
You may be right, Headgamer! ;)

Will he think she's calling HIM mindless pawn? Oh, wait... Is she?
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 3:54 PM edit delete reply
She might be, Nef! XD;
Nef 27th Apr 2016, 10:59 PM edit delete reply
Hahaha! Answered like a true politician.

"He also seems...weakened"
Ya think?? You nearly made him explode a little while back. I think 'weakened' might be an understatement here
Lukkai 25th Apr 2016, 7:45 AM edit delete reply
Certainly not as weakened as she currently is.
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 3:55 PM edit delete reply
@Kat: Definitely XD

Though of course, after seeing him get up even after that, Ophelia's liable to think he's only a little weakened by it all. XD;

Purge? Like the movie?

Dangit, keep forgetting to login.
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 4:34 PM edit delete reply
Oh, is there a movie called The Purge? XD; I had no idea. Is it safe to look up? lol, I'm imagining all sorts of horrific movie synopses that could possibly follow a title like 'The Purge' right now... XD;;;
Chris the Blue 26th Apr 2016, 11:48 PM edit delete reply
Chris the Blue
It's about a society that allows any crime to be legal for one day per year. It's apparently not great.
Rick and Morty parodied it. It was a great episode.
rufiangel 27th Apr 2016, 8:49 AM edit delete reply
Oh, that definitely does not sound like any of the guesses I had in mind XDDD

So I should watch it so I can watch the parody? XD
Chris the Blue 27th Apr 2016, 11:57 PM edit delete reply
Chris the Blue
Nah, they explain what happens in the movie pretty well.

Though, if you're not a fan of that sort of movie, I'd be careful with Rick and Morty if I were you.
MST3KFan 21st Apr 2016, 4:40 AM edit delete reply
It seems there has been some miscommunication somewhere either on Ophie's side of Seia's.

Best not to antagonize your capture/healer Ophie. Seia is in no mood for it.
Visvires 21st Apr 2016, 5:26 AM edit delete reply
From what we've seen, I would say its less miscommunication, and more outright lying on her side. Her own summon said she was being lied to, and her conversation claimed kinship and offered some evidence for it by what language they were speaking.

Bad choice of tests she picked there. I get that she's trying to look for openings, but past experience should've told her the one she'd be most likely to find would be a new in her own stomach. Though, I suppose it worked well enough.
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 4:36 PM edit delete reply
I see what you did there, Visvires XD <3

I guess it just goes to show that pushing your luck comes with consequences. XD; Though I'd say Ophelia got off pretty easy!
Chris the Blue 21st Apr 2016, 10:00 PM edit delete reply
Chris the Blue
What we have hear is failure to communicate!
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 4:35 PM edit delete reply
That sounds like sound advice, MST3K. XD;; As they say about letting sleeping dogs lie...
Lukkai 27th Apr 2016, 9:15 AM edit delete reply
Well, the only sleeping dog here is Ophelia.

I totally agree, seamuffin :'D
Allzephyr 21st Apr 2016, 7:29 AM edit delete reply
Once again highlighting the point that Ophelia is not, in fact, a very nice person. But she seems to know something more about Seia's true nature, which makes it sound like Abel is leading some sort of witch hunt. How charming of him.
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 5:09 PM edit delete reply
Yep! XD; She has a bit of a malicious streak in her, it would seem.

It's interesting you think she might know more about Seia's 'true nature'. Ophelia seemed kind of surprised when Seia's nature didn't seem to be quite what she'd thought. What does Ophelia know, or not know? ;)

I see someone is in need of a really good purgative.
Eat more fiber.

Good advice for us all, in general! :P

Don't think you're fit to try being threatening and stuff right now, Ophelia xD
Scary Seia >_>

I must say I kinda like Ophelia too.. Not sure why, but I do like her XD
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 5:11 PM edit delete reply
I'm not sure Ophelia was trying to be threatening so much as just needling Seia for some reason XD lolol!

I'm surprised people like her! XD;;
Kat 24th Apr 2016, 12:10 PM edit delete reply
I kind of have a hard time imagining Seia as a "mindless pawn", to be honest...
I also just took a visit to the cast page and still can't believe that he's 31 xD Are Lethians long-lived or something?
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 5:14 PM edit delete reply
Seia, a mindless pawn? Hmmm... ;)

Also, yes, he is 31. XD; Kylie also noted back on this page that Seia looks younger than he actually is.

Lethian Knights are always human, so they have human lifespans. :)

@friday flare: great to hear you are managing it...

I hope you soon find a way to do it more relaxed, though... - ...and I wish you do not lose your joy of doing the comic and that it does not become a burden *hugs*

rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 5:15 PM edit delete reply
Hahaha, still learning to strike that fine balance between 'relaxed' and 'disciplined'. Trust me, if I don't crack the whip on myself, nothing would ever get done for Serpamia Flare. XD;;;

One more <3 for Ophi just cause. X)
rufiangel 25th Apr 2016, 5:16 PM edit delete reply
Lol, D XD I'm happy you like her so much, though...
Well, we'll see XD
HeSerpenty 25th Apr 2016, 5:44 PM edit delete reply
I have to say... I absolutely love Seia <333

I am SUPER curious about what"use" she has for him tho! I still think he should just kill her >__>

Know what i mean? Shes tricksy!!!! I don't trust her!
rufiangel 27th Apr 2016, 8:56 AM edit delete reply
I'm happy you like Seia, Serpy! XD <33 I guess it's a good thing I didn't kill him off after all, LOL XD

We'll have to see who really gets the last laugh (so to speak) with these two, later. Or maybe neither will come out on top... >_>
HeSerpenty 27th Apr 2016, 9:34 AM edit delete reply
Omg you know how to give me a heaping dose of anxiety with this stuff, don't you??? lolololol

Eh, don't beat yourself up too much if the update is delayed. You've got a job now and can't work fulltime on these pages. If you manage to get two up a week, all's well anyway. And if not, we'll still understand.

I for one would never rip your head off for missing an update! My arms don't reach all the way to Hong Kong after all. ;)
rufiangel 27th Apr 2016, 2:30 PM edit delete reply
Thank you, Lukkai! X3 Your kind assurances are warmly received with gratitude.

Also, I hope retractable robot arms that reach across continents don't get invented any time soon. :'DDD
