Happy Monday, folks! :D Couple of you guys guessed it correctly and I'm so pleased about that XD

This is one loose end I wanted to tie up with these couple of pages - we'll see how the rest of the loose ends get resolved~

I may not be able to update on time for the next one - I will try, though! I just happen to be away this weekend on church retreat so I don't know if I'll manage to do it in time. I'll keep you guys updated!

Thanks for reading as always ;v;* catch you guys again soon and have a great start to your week <3

GAH I forgot to make an announcement that I wouldn't be updating today! @_@;;; So sorry about this! I had a really bad migraine last weekend for whatever reason and lost a day and a half of comic time because I was K.O-ed in bed ~_~;;; sorry guys! I hate not updating twice in a row :< let me try to think of a way to make up for it.

In the meantime, thanks for your patience and understanding T_T***

Getting someone right when they've just woken up is mean, isn't it? XD They're not firing on all cylinders sometimes!

Awww... poor Andrea... =P

Misguided as she is...

@alt text: True, great poker face there, George

@author notes: no problem =) we will be here and refreshing... =P ;)

Poor Andrea? XD Hmmm, that's an interesting stance to take!

George has the best poker face XD

Also - sorry about the pause in updates! It's always hard after retreat, I should have remembered that :/

Okay first off, the boi is saaaaafe! His soul was not consumed by the Great Fluffu Doggu <3

... course now that means these siblings are doomed by the law, but still, better than death via Summoned Behemoth XD And because I'm suspicious of things that aren't really suspicious, they better not do any suicide attempts to get away from this *eyes the two suspiciously*

Good job, Police Archaiea, for being incredibly smart and doing far better than most law-enforcement! And good job on the ebil ruse, rufi XD

They did indeed manage to save his soul before that baseball hit the plate! XD; Whew.

Suicide attempts, huh... *surreptitiously writes notes* Huh? What? Nooo, who said you're giving me ideas...? >.>

Also, danke danke XD the ruse was fun to enact! <3

Well, these two are certainly in a lot of trouble. For some reason, I picture them each being grabbed by an ear, and led away. :D

rufiangel
Pffft, Drew (Speedcaster) is young enough to warrant that :'D

But yes, they are both in for a world of trouble! :O

and how convenient that the defender now has both children of an Imperial official hostage, but I'm pretty sure that hadn't occurred to Sir Bradley at all!

lol we have been enjoying too many scheming/devious shows/books/games! We need to be more wholesome for this comic XD

LOL Proxy nuuu never change! XD Lolol!

Sometimes when there's information to be had, these peeps more useful alive than dead, let's say :P

But... yanno, maybe they're all just too nice for their own good XD LOL

Ahahaha DLK, I'm sure Sir Bradley never thinks about leverage or nothing~~ ;D

Ah yes, the pretend it's still yesterday trick... I'm lucky no one has pulled that on me I have to admit, I'd be super freaked out XDD

Called it. After Speedcaster was rescued from his own folly he probably broke down however to be sure they needed to verify his story in relation to Andrea. She is obviously stronger of the two and my guess is that the black beast would have been stronger because of that.

rufiangel
You did indeed call it! I wasn't able to go into a lot of detail on this just yet - maybe later, I will. But yes, if Andrea and Drew had been pitted against each other in the final, they would have put on a far louder show than Drew did in terms of announcing True Imperia's goals, aaand... another thing that isn't exactly expounded upon here but it'll be relevant much later, keep it in mind ;)

Andrea looks pretty cool in that 5th panel, dunno what it is about it

Oh, hm! Perhaps it's the details? XD; Not sure - but I'll keep that in mind!

Ah, I'm all caught up! So... Now we just wait? Not that I have a problem with waiting, especially for something as compelling as this, but is there a community or forum dedicated to this comic? Any sort of way to keep the spirit alive outside of the comic?
mjkj 5th Jul 2018, 4:33 PM edit delete reply
mjkj
Yup, the forum is in the links up there - but we mostly just use the discord at the moment - link is also up there... =)
