Happy Thursday, y'all! Did you have your ice-cream like a good reader? XD Let me know your favourite flavours below <3

Not much to add - something will go up for Friday Flare tomorrow, so see you then! <3

Updated Friday Flare... after midnight, sorry XD; at least it's technically Friday in other places around the world still?

Chris the Blue
Is Nemi like, a cat person, and Mikey a dog person?
I just got that.
mjkj 14th Jul 2016, 7:06 PM edit delete reply
Indeed, Chris, Nemi is kijin (feline) and Mike is danrir (canine)...
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 8:39 AM edit delete reply
Yep, what Mjkj links to will probably do a better job than I can explain in a comment XD;

It's mostly my fault you didn't notice earlier given I don't accentuate their ears all that particularly, though that's sort of deliberate on my part ;)

Will she break the news to him?

Vap made some ice cream from scratch. It was a rich vanilla with Oreos mixed in. :D
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 8:43 AM edit delete reply
It took me a moment to realise what you meant by 'news'! XD; Technically, Mikey is already aware that Nemi's last stop is Jem Citadel, but I see what you mean, lol.

That sounds DELICIOUS btw!!! @_@*** afwafufufuf

Awww Defo why XD
You da tease XDD
sigpig 14th Jul 2016, 11:58 PM edit delete reply
French Vanilla (with LOTS of egg yolks) in the custard!
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 8:45 AM edit delete reply
Sounds amazing sigpig! I love vanilla too, I don't care now many people have told me over the years I'm boring for it :P
Jarvi 15th Jul 2016, 4:28 AM edit delete reply
That's bad spot for making out Mikey... you can both fall down ;)
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 8:47 AM edit delete reply
LOL Jarvi-nii XDDD
I'm sure there's a signpost nearby with this warning just because there have been so many incidents,"Making out in trees is not allowed by order of the Council."
Jarvi 18th Jul 2016, 2:30 PM edit delete reply
Oh... bad Council. They shouldn't be banning such nice thing, just put a warning sign... or safety belts on trees :D
MST3KFan 15th Jul 2016, 5:06 AM edit delete reply

Such a nice relaxing/tender moment despite the possibilities of losing Nemi in the future. T_T

Thought of another good flavor of ice cream here. Chocolate Marshmallow. Actually has marshmallow creme in it. Soooo good, but haven't had it in years since it only seems to come in large gallon buckets around here.
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
Aw MST3K XD; *pat pat* I find it hard to believe sometimes that this webcomic started with a whole chapter without Nemi, lol!

Chocolate Marshmallow ice-cream sounds amazeballs, I love marshmallow creme <3 ;3;*
Kat 15th Jul 2016, 5:10 AM edit delete reply
Mike, how did you even get up in that tree? O_O
I've been working in a coffee/ice cream shop all summer, but I've barely had any ice cream myself...X'D I'd probably go for cheesecake or caramel pecan though...or mango
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
He rolled for 'Climb' and sustained multiple injuries for every failed roll, but he doggedly pursued until he rolled high enough XD

Oooh, that sounds like a busy summer job! @_@ I guess you wouldn't be allowed to spoon ice-cream out for yourself but... treat yourself sometime! XD; <3 Caramel pecan sounds delicious! ;3;*
Kat 18th Jul 2016, 4:18 PM edit delete reply
Mission accomplished! I got some caramel pecan ice cream :D
rufiangel 20th Jul 2016, 10:14 AM edit delete reply
*awards Kat with an ice-cream medal*

I want someeeee

Ahh that first panel is SO pretty :'D
The shading on those trees~
...But then that last panel woah holy shit even prettier
Woah, such a nice view for them~
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
<3 Thankyew so much seamuffin, that's really encouraging! ;3;* I'm still trying to really learn how to do trees and buildings so it's really great to know it's looking good so far T^T* <333

(I think if I put a sunset sky behind pretty much anything it becomes instantly prettier :'DDD)
KAM 15th Jul 2016, 5:00 PM edit delete reply
Two tries for him to get up the tree? Was that with a ladder? ;-)
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
Lol KAM, if he used a ladder, he proceeded to hurl it somewhere iles away so no one would find out he used one XDD
KAM 18th Jul 2016, 6:40 PM edit delete reply
Well, officer, I was minding my own business when this ladder came out of nowhere and hit me! ;-)
CiciEnixa 15th Jul 2016, 11:09 PM edit delete reply
I'd like to think that Mikey did not go exploring around, and actually spent the entire time since he last saw Nemi just trying to desperately climb that tree XD

(I think you already know about my purple ice cream of yammyness<3)
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
Lolol Cici-muffin XD I think he probably did spend quite some time trying to get up the tree :'D <3 and yesh I know about you and your love for purple ice-cream, muffin <3 XD (and... sea-salt ice-cream? >.>)
mjkj 16th Jul 2016, 1:08 AM edit delete reply
@friday flare: Wow, interesting - and thank you for sharing =D *hugs*

(Yup still Friday here... =D - but you should have mentioned that you would post it on our Friday - not yours... XD =P ) ;)

rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:24 PM edit delete reply
As long as you guys find it interesting I'm glad to keep Friday Flare up! :) And sorry for not notifying, I honestly just forgot to update Friday Flare. ^_^;; It'll get easier after I do a website overhaul, I think! Thanks for your patience!

Nemi and Michael up a tree....

Udderly Divine. No contest.
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:25 PM edit delete reply
Ooooooh :D I've never heard of that before, that sounds... like an ice-cream deserving of the exclamation... dare I say it?... "Holy cow!" ;D

*runs away*
Lukkai 19th Jul 2016, 10:12 PM edit delete reply
Watch it. "Holy Cow" is actually the name of a (upper quality, both as a goal and actual fact) burger shop here in Winterthur.
rufiangel 20th Jul 2016, 1:41 PM edit delete reply
Well, holy udder quality burgers, Batman!
Allzephyr 16th Jul 2016, 7:50 AM edit delete reply
Not pictured in this scene: 8 minutes of Mike trying to shimmy up the tree trunk.

And yes! Ice cream. Favorite flavors are chocolate, chocolate sorbet, hazelnut chocolate, and mint-chip. One of these has been consumed in the last 24 hours so mission accomplished!
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:25 PM edit delete reply
Pretty much, Zeph, yes XDDD

And GOOD JOB! :D <3 *awards you with an ice-cream medal* I've never actually had chocolate sorbet before, just fruity kinds of sorbet. It sounds lovely though! <3

Romantic tree-sitting time at Sunset? Hehehe this I don't mind :3

This is a beautiful page, Rufi! As all ur pages are <3 :)
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:25 PM edit delete reply
Yep, Serpy-kins XD;; <3 Nemi and Michael, sitting in a tree~ T-A-L-K-I-N-G, basically XDD

And thankyew <33 ;3;* I am glad the page turned out okay! It's always a struggle to get the panels to depict what I want them to in my headdd XD;;
HeSerpenty 18th Jul 2016, 2:58 PM edit delete reply
LOL I knew it was saying "talking" but as I read it I completely said "Kissing" in my head and couldn't get around it X'D

(hahaha the age old struggle! Getting the head picture right--- I feel ya X'D)
rufiangel 20th Jul 2016, 1:41 PM edit delete reply
LOL! XD Now that's what I calling shipping vision!!
TheD-Wrek 17th Jul 2016, 9:03 PM edit delete reply
Dang, how long did it take you to draw that building? :O
rufiangel 18th Jul 2016, 2:27 PM edit delete reply
It actually took forever XDDD I did cheat a little and used an outline I made back on this page~ but I still spent a long time re-lining, re-flatting and re-shading it :'D Thank you D for recognising my efforts! :'D <333
Outlaw 18th Jul 2016, 11:39 PM edit delete reply
Awww, look at the two of them enjoying such a peaceful moment!
I hope no other personalities jump out and interrupt!

rufiangel 20th Jul 2016, 1:42 PM edit delete reply
Yep, it sure is nice and quiet out here on these camping grounds XD; <3

I can make no promises, Outlaw! :'D <33
Lukkai 19th Jul 2016, 10:15 PM edit delete reply
Hm... Ice cream sold internationally, I like Ben&Jerry's. And I think that Möwenpick is available at least in some other countries. I know they sell (or at least did sell) it in Germany.

I also know this wonderful little ice cream shop in the old town of Vienna. But that's probably not much of a help for most readers here.

Edit: I should mention: Something very typical for where I live (north-eastern Switzerland) are some farmers producing and selling ice cream locally. At least part of which is completely from their own plantation (berries, apple, pear and so on). Those all are unfathomably good! Think of a raspberry sorbet where you get the feeling of just having stuffed your mouth with a spoon full of pure and perfectly ripe raspberry, just cold and icy.
rufiangel 20th Jul 2016, 1:43 PM edit delete reply
Oooh, I do like Ben&Jerry's chocolate chip cookie dough ice-cream! <3 :D

Movenpick (yes, that's how I pronounce it, hush) ice-cream sells in HK too! Though it's a rather pricey treat, it's delicious ;3;* <33

And... LUKKAI XD lemme visit Winterthur for all your fruity sorbet/ice-cream and holy burgers XDD <333
