I hate it when I do late updates continually!! BFLFKADSDH. The next update will go up on Saturday and regularly-timed updates should resume from next Friday onwards. Thanks so much for your patience, dear readers!!

EDIT: Oops, this makes it sound like I won't update again until next Friday. I will, just maybe not on time. XD;

Sometimes things happen and comics are late. It's nice to stick to a schedule, but sometimes you just have to accept it's not always going to happen. Over on the Drunk Duck version of my comic I finally wrote "updates Monday, Wednesday & Friday, except when it doesn't." ;-) Then again I do have a subscription to this comic so I check it out when it shows an update rather than checking MWF.

Thank you for understanding! Haha. :) I guess that's true... and I can totally understand too, the other way round. I appreciate it! :)

Yayyy for supporting friends :)

I really like Nemi's eyes in panel two.

I wonder why Kylie is looking so sad? indecisive? expecting? in that last panel...

...is that a slight blush she is sporting there?

Aww, thank you! :D

Yes, that is a slight blush. As to what might be running through her mind, I'll leave it to readers to guess for now. XD; But I can hint that back in chapter one, when Cain initially asked if he could party up with her in strip 5, Kylie was interrupted but was actually going to say: "I haven't had a partner in years."... let alone been in a party.

...one of the things I like about Comicfury as webcomic hosting is, I just need to check my list of subscribed comics to get all the updates, regardless of schedule. So, no sweat :-)

I like how the story progressed so far. I also like how the Knight, the Cleric, and the Thief complement each other. (Sometimes I suspect, despite being the youngest, Nemi is actually the most experienced of the three.) However, we got to know more about Kylie's past, now it is time for Cain to spill some beans!

Thank you so much for understanding! ;_;*

And also, thank you for your comment! I'm happy the party chemistry has won some approval! XD <3

And I guess this is a half spoiler (lol) but yes, it is indeed time for Cain to reveal a couple of things indeed. :D I hope you find it interesting too!

This has nothing to do with the present issue but it just occurred to me: How did Cain manage to hide his chains in that suit? I mean, it's likely more snug than his usual attire so surely people would have seen the chain indentations. Maybe he used a powerful illusion spell. Yeah, that's probably it....

...Oh! Um... Yeah, no worries about the updates. Serpamia Flare updates far more frequently than anything else so it's perfectly fine to miss a deadline or two.

Hahahaha, excellent question... so I will answer in a way that proves I'm a total nerd who overthinks and does actually have answers to these questions. XD;;;

In strip 143, Seia asks Cain what is taking him so long to prep for the party, and Cain says he had to adjust his chains. I might illustrate this later in an omake to properly explain it, but what Cain did was wrap the chains neatly around his torso and a couple around his upper arms (you'll notice the suit he had on had kind of puff sleeves at the upper arm area) and then bandage it tightly to himself to smooth it out. His forearms were free of chains during this time, which is why in strip 170, the sai goes straight through his forearm without hitting any chains.

This makes things a bit unbearably hot and also uncomfortable for him, however, so he won't do this unless he has to partake in a grand ball. :P

Plus, maybe he did use an illusion spell. (Or... I did!) Tee hee! :9

And thank you so much for understanding, re: updating schedule. I'll try my best! :)

... I didn't even realize that this update was late, and like so many others said: No worries :3 Late updates are, after all, still better than no updates ^^
