Happy Thursday, folks! :)

(This one is up a couple hours later than usual because like an idiot I scheduled it to upload on Friday instead of Thursday :'D fixing that now!)

I hope you guys enjoy today's update~ I announced the new side-project yesterday in the A/N but I'll drop it again here just in case you missed it:

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!)

This will be a weekly update every Tuesday, so you can check it out between SF updates! It should be a bloody fun romp XD <3

By the way, something that's kind of vague right now but I could use some feedback on if you guys are interested; I'm flying to the States at the end of January 2018 for a wedding (whose birthday it is tomorrow, incidentally, HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY MY BESTEST BEST FRIENDU <3) so I'm wondering if readers from the US might possibly be interested in hanging out at a convention or something around that timeframe. The wedding's in California but I can plan to fly to other states if need be - nothing's concrete in terms of dates or places or whatever, so I'm open to just brainstorming or tossing around ideas. -v-)/

Alright, that's enough from me. I hope you guys enjoyed today's update! See you guys on Monday with the next one! :)

Wow, Kylie learning something new - hope she will learn to cast without seal soon, too...

Hmmm, what is a Stiles Original???

Awww... that Kylie face in the second to last panel... =D

Haha, we'll see about Kylie and the seal thing~ XD

And thankyew <33 you're always so encouraging! X3

A Stiles original . . . must be one-of-a-kind!

Kylie has a very good attitude toward learning new things!
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:11 PM edit delete reply
Hehehe, yep!

And she does~ :D (it's also partly why it drives her up the wall whenever Cain is resistant to learning something new XD)

I always knew Sir Bradley had Stile! ^_^

(Their marketing slogan: "If you want to defeat your enemy, do it with Stile!")

Well, DANG XD ka-ching ka-ching for the pun jar, my friend!

This implies, does it not, that Kylie's ice blade is considered to have a Lethian seal?
Wido 20th Oct 2017, 1:31 AM edit delete reply
Well, the ice blade she used against balzac was made from the remains of her actual blade, the one she always used to cast ice-stuff. So, I would guess it already had a seal
The Chessmaster 21st Oct 2017, 6:18 AM edit delete reply
The Chessmaster
The ice blade shouldn't matter, since only the sword's blade was damaged and the seal was on the hilt. The problem is less that she doesn't have a seal, and more that she doesn't have a weapon that can get through the beast's shield.
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:14 PM edit delete reply
Yep! Kylie's ice blade was crafted onto the hilt of her old sword, which had a Lethian seal in it. Sir Bradley's spare sword has a hilt with a Lethian seal in it, too, since it's what he used when he was still in the Lethian Knight Guild. :)

Aw, Kylie x3

"Super-senpai" and "super-sensei"... Now you've made me imagine Sir Bradley and Seia doing Power Ranger poses, and that was weird xD

Maybe I'm going on a limb here, but wasn't Stiles the name of one of Mike and Jinn's... "parents"? Guardians?

re: A/N: Why must California be so far away from Massachusetts... TT_TT
( seems like every time you say you're travelling, it's always for a wedding xD)

((*breathes again* Eeeeeeeee ))
CiciEnixa 20th Oct 2017, 5:06 AM edit delete reply
I agree with the Power Rangers imagery XDDD

Looking back, it does seem like Mikey and Jinn have mentioned Stiles in passing here. Judging from his skill and the way they talk about him, he might be THEIR sensei, training them to be sealsmiths.

Thank you for the link, Cici <3

Ah, thanks, I was looking for that link x'D
(Power Rangers theme song now forever stuck in my head x'D)
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:15 PM edit delete reply
You guys have good memory! XD

And I might be bouncing around states, I'm open to ideas since I don't have a fixed itinerary yet -v-)/

Also that mental image of Sir Bradley and Seia doing Power Ranger poses is amazing

Come to Boston~ (...come to think of it, though, I don't think there are any conventions in January around here anyway...)

Eheheheh... *adds to fanart list*
rufiangel 26th Oct 2017, 11:43 AM edit delete reply
Boston! Lady Philyra (below) mentioned a New England sci-fi/fantasy con, Arisia :D but it's unfortunately too early in January for me. T.T

I'd love to visit regardless if I can though! :D I need to take a closer look at what's about to see if I can wrangle some kind of itinerary that makes sense across the states. -v-

The Accidental Ninja
Totally didn't see this comment until now whoops x'D
I didn't know about that con at all xD but I don't even get back from break till mid-January anyway...

Well, if you can at some point come to Boston, I'd love to meet you! ^^ (and also you should see Boston 'cause it's cool xD)
MST3KFan 20th Oct 2017, 12:50 AM edit delete reply
Kylie seems extra cute here on this page. Maybe cause she's trying to learn some things she didn't know. XD

Definitely strikes me as that attentive student type. LOL
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:16 PM edit delete reply
She has learnt to be a quick learner since Seia was just that kind of teacher XD

Lots of people finding Kylie cute on this page! Aww. :)
Jarvi 20th Oct 2017, 1:40 AM edit delete reply
Hahahah I see I share Nemi's and Cain's thoughts :D It's good to see Kylie being a noob for once xD
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:18 PM edit delete reply
She is many levels above Cain and Nemi, but even then, she is many levels below some people too XD the spectrum is wide! :D She is still learning <3
CiciEnixa 20th Oct 2017, 4:58 AM edit delete reply
I read the A/N as "super sentai" XDDD

It's very cute to see Kylie being a wee student kouhai. Bradley seems rather surprised that Kylie can't cast Lethiaces without a seal, though. Is it because Kylie's skill makes him think she's way more advanced (assuming seals are like... training wheel equivalents) than she is, or... could it be similar or related to The Talk with Zion? Hm...
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:19 PM edit delete reply
Once again, the Power Ranger poses come to mind XDD ahahaha <3

It could be one, or the other, or both ;D fufufu
sigpig 24th Oct 2017, 12:22 AM edit delete reply
I would guess that Kylie's sheer power is off the charts, but her knowledge and skill are not yet at the same level...
DLKmusic 20th Oct 2017, 7:50 AM edit delete reply
Awesomeness!!! The only question I really have here though is "where is Briar at the point where Daddy gives Knight K THE sword... you know, the one he was never allowed to touch..."?

I"m with Kat, I'm starting to sqeeeeeeee myself. I don't care if I'm too old!

rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:29 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha, that would certainly be a sight for Briar to see if that were the case! XD

And I don't think there's an age limit to squeeing! XD Though I worry for you guys - pleeeease remember to breeeeathe XD
CraftyNessi33 20th Oct 2017, 3:07 PM edit delete reply
I love Kylie's face!!! <3
She's such an innocent learner, but a slave driver when training others! XD (poor cain during training lol)

And you're coming to Cali! I'm from California and would totally love to meet! And happy birfday to your friend and congrats to them as well!! :D
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:44 PM edit delete reply
Ahaha XD I am happy Kylie gets some love for being an innocent learner <3 (It's partly why she's a slave driver LOL)

And hey that's awesome!! :D Though I am also aware (with my paltry sense of American geography) that California is a big place XD;; would you be going to any conventions or anything around that time frame in the area by any chance?
CraftyNessi33 24th Oct 2017, 9:28 AM edit delete reply
<3 <3 <3

I live near the Los Angeles area in Southern California. I wasn't planning on any conventions cuz i havent looked at the schedule for any of them. ^^; but if you plan on going to one i will definitely go. I'll double check the schedules. :D
rufiangel 26th Oct 2017, 11:39 AM edit delete reply
X3 Aww dear, thank you! <3 I will start looking into conventions going on in that area, on specific date ranges more concretely now that I have a better idea of my availability around that time, hehe. <3
Lady Philyra 20th Oct 2017, 4:21 PM edit delete reply
In January, I always go to a New England sci-fi/fantasy con called Arisia.
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:46 PM edit delete reply
I looked it up and it looks like a cool convention!! Sadly it's a bit too early in January for me :'D I'm unable to take vacation until a bit later than that due to a project at work. Booooo. Thanks for letting me know, though! <3 ;v;*

Dunno what it is about this page, but I'm kinda fan girling over Sir Bradley XD Must be that Earth Lethiace haha (is that what we're going with? Earth? Rock? sorry if I missed the official wording >.>)
Scia 21st Oct 2017, 1:09 PM edit delete reply
Pretty sure it's Earth. Along with being standard, that's what's used in Rufi's novel.
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:52 PM edit delete reply
@Scia: Sir Bradley is an Earth Lethian Knight :)

There are a lot of similarities between The Lethian and Lethian Knights in SF, you are correct! I will note though that there are some significant differences. You'll see~ ;)
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 2:50 PM edit delete reply
Ahahahaha that makes me quite happy XDDD <33

It's Earth, yep! Don't worry, it hasn't been mentioned in-comic yet XD (just me puttering about in the comments lol)

I'M CAUGHT UP AGAIN. AHHHH holy moly there's so much happening. ;u;

The tension with Kylie and Lyn and the delicateness of the situation is killing me asfksjhdf

Also the Lethian Guild being compromised and inside-jobbed >_>...

I'm really looking forward to seeing what fighting the dark disc summon will reveal in Kylie and Cain ahhh
rufiangel 23rd Oct 2017, 3:03 PM edit delete reply
Dang Spellu, that was a lot to catch up on! ;v;* Thank you for catching up though, I'm very happy <333 *glomps*

Re: Kylie and Lyn - that seems to be killing everyone, sorry about that XDDD

Re: inside job @ Lethian Guild - fu fu fu ;)

Re: dark disc summon - hopefully you'll find the process(?) fun, if nothing else XDD

Luckily Kylie's a quick learner, so they're not spending ages on it XD <3 (there's a roaring beast less than an ile away after all XDD)

Good thing he carries valuable spare swords. Very useful hobby. xD
