Happy Monday, folks! :) I hope you guys are having a good start to your week so far.

Here's a very text-heavy update XD; next one will be sliiightly less wordy -v-)/

I finally have some time to post some really overdue fanart :'D Here we go!

First I got this really cute Madou fanart, with Karenite's OCs XD


Thank you Karenite, it somewhat terrifies me to think that Madou has peers out there in other universes XDD but how nice, eh? (For them, anyway. I'm not sure how the people around them feel about this XD) Karenite has a lot of stuff on CF that you can check out on her profile page over here!

Next, I got this hilarious fancomic from KAM of The KAMics fame - I will let it speak for itself XD


He told me in the PM that he hoped it wasn't spoiling any future plot twists LOL XD I'm almost disappointed that it doesn't, it would have been amazing, ahahaha XD thank you so much KAM, this is awesome <3

If you check back on this space later on Tuesday, I might have an announcement here on a special side-project I've been working on. It's not SF-related, it's something else! Watch this space ;D

Alright, I'll see you guys on Thursday with the next update. I hope you enjoy today's update - thank you for reading <3

Aaand the side-project has officially launched! :)

Blood is Drawn is the drawn comic version of Blood is Mine, the interactive horror webcomic by Morgenstern. :D (The Webtoon version can be found here, too!)

I'm illustrating into comic format what has already been written in BiM into BiD (MM came up with that amazing pun XD) - just the first chapter, though. If you found the format hard to get into for BiM, then this might be easier for you to roll into. :)

This will be a weekly update every Tuesday, so if you guys want to check that out in between SF updates, I can promise it'll be fun times!

Thanks for your attention <3

Wow, so, more preparations needed... :o, those fanarts :o <3

Haha, I'm glad you liked the chibi-Nemi.

I'm very blessed by the fanart! :D

Reading Ellis's explanation I found myself thinking they needed an ICBM (InterContinetal Ballistic Magic) ;-)

They don't have to be that far apart, thankfully!

Haha, yup, this is definitely a raid boss! XD

It's got all the makings of one, though this one may lack a proper loot drop XD oh vey!

That....sounds like a strenuous, tedious plan. Can someone cast a mana drain or something as a curse on him? To at least slow the regen?

It's a lot of words, Rufi, but it didn't feel exposition-y! So good job! :D
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 4:16 PM edit delete reply
It's certainly a plan with a lot of T&C -v-)/

As for something that drains Spirit... you mean like Cain's chain curse? XD

And thank you Proxy, that means a lot!! ;v;* I'm always relieved to learn that the wordiness was still readable! <3

THat does not look all xD Hopefully it will go.... at least fairly well? xD
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 4:17 PM edit delete reply
We'll seeeeee XD it'll go... some way or the other XD

Cue Boss Battle music! :D

Good explanations; it sounds pretty straightforward, but certainly NOT easy! (might have to put in some overtime on this one!)

Nice fanarts! I have to admit laughing way too much at the second one! Nice ones, Karinite, and KAM :)
Karinite 17th Oct 2017, 10:20 AM edit delete reply
Thank you! :) Madou certainly likes a good conversation. Especially with one as...pictorially eloquent as he. ;)
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 4:19 PM edit delete reply
@Karenite: 'Pictorially eloquent' is a great phrase! Madou should use that as his status when he goes online! XD;
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 4:18 PM edit delete reply
Boss Battle music coming up very soon indeed! XD

And thank you, I'm very glad to know the explanations were straightforward and easy to understand (even if it's another story entirely in terms of following through with them XD). <3

The fanarts are awesome <3 :D hehehe

Glad you enjoyed it. :-)

Of course it's never so simple as hitting one target.
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 4:24 PM edit delete reply
It might have been, if this were closer to the beginning of the game and the character levels were considerably lower XD in a manner of speaking, anyway, lol

Love the alt text. =3
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 4:25 PM edit delete reply
Aw, I'm happy you're enjoying those! <3 There are a lot of small things about the NPCs I can't always show in-comic so I'm trying to express what I can in Alt-texts whenever possible XD <3
Scia 17th Oct 2017, 5:15 AM edit delete reply
Wait, how does Ellis know that Nemi is a Kijinni?
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 12:38 AM edit delete reply
I have no idea. XD;;; I have retconned this since you have pointed it out, thank you XDDD
DLKmusic 17th Oct 2017, 6:51 AM edit delete reply
Love it, Love it, LOVE IT!!!! the hit with everything you got part seems kinda dicey though, what with the elemental shielding and all.

Time to stay tuned!

and those fanarts... an alt-universe Madau talking with our Madau... LORD Help us all!

And KAM, I'm not sure what's funnier, the behemoth looking like a purring kitten or Kylie's facepalm!
Karinite 17th Oct 2017, 10:20 AM edit delete reply
Thank you. :) Madou and Alex certainly like talking with pictures, though I feel Blue and Kylie aren't as amused.
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 4:29 PM edit delete reply
XD I'm so happy you're lovin' it so far, DLK! I really hope you'll enjoy this sequence :D

The elemental shielding is exactly why Ellis can't help finish it in short order, actually. Even if Kylie and Sir Bradley weren't Lethian Knights, if elemental magic wasn't blocked, Ellis would be able to take it out so long as the beast was being tanked sufficiently. Black Mages have pretty powerful elemental offensive spells in their arsenal, after all. -v-

Do stay tuned <3

And yes, the fanarts are great XD <3

Who is going to make the thundar happen? :)
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 4:30 PM edit delete reply
Will you disown me for not being able to recall, for the life of me, what reference that is? :'DDD It's like... on the tip of my tongue but it's not coming to me aaaahhhh
Karinite 17th Oct 2017, 10:21 AM edit delete reply
KAM that is hilarious! xD

Whoo Ellis looks a panel 5. Maybe a nice hot soothing bath. :P
rufiangel 19th Oct 2017, 4:30 PM edit delete reply
I'm sure all the characters present could use a nice hot soothing bath at this point XD if only they could all take a trip to Spherea again and take advantage of their hot springs :'D
KAM 19th Oct 2017, 8:07 PM edit delete reply
Thank you! :-)

Yours is good too!
