Hello dear readers! :) I hope you guys are having a good start to the week so far!

First, here's the result of the poll for which side-story I should cover over the two week break (which starts next week) - thank you guys so much for voting, it really helps to see what readers are interested in!

Can I be honest and admit I did not expect the Cain and Kylie conversation to get the most votes? XD; Either you guys are expecting something interesting or these two have more shippers than I thought! Not that I'm complaining~!

I'll try and map out how I deal with side-stories with priority given to the ones that got more votes. :) But you guys will definitely see the Cain and Kylie extended conversation during the break!

Second thingama... I'm travelling again, this time to India for a very close friend's wedding. So guess what that means...

... It meant I spent all weekend and today furiously working up what was a non-existent buffer, so updates will continue to upload as usual. XD; Phew! Just note that I may not be able to respond to comments or messages until I get back due to limited wi-fi access.

With that, this author is out! I hope you guys enjoy the outtro to Chapter Four this week! :D

lol I don't even remember what I voted for. I don't think it was the Kylie and Cain conversation, though :P

Also, is it sad that I do the exact same thing Madou does when I'm alone and just talking to myself? I may have found myself a kindred spirit.

Not sad at all, because Madou gets it from me! XD;; Kindred spirits unite!! <333

Quite the winds - oh the road sign is broken...

Aww, thank you! :D I'll try my best!

The road sign is broken indeed... as are many other things in Halehurst.

Sounds like a wonderful trip. Enjoy yourself.

Also the wind effects on this page look great.

And glad the wind effects work! <3

A tribute to how strong that storm is: there were some trees in the middle before it hit, and all of them had leaves.
Lukkai 25th Nov 2014, 7:41 AM edit delete reply
That might be a long term result from the cold as well though.
rufiangel 25th Nov 2014, 11:21 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Mmhmm. Most of the trees might already be dead, they're just standing there. :P

It's not quite a storm, though definitely is stormy weather. ;)

Great job with the weather. I even makes me shiver reading it.

Hurray! :D Thank you!

It's like I'm foreshadowing our turn from fall to winter in RL too... TOO REAL XD;

I never actually expected an LCF's effects to persist.
Lukkai 25th Nov 2014, 7:47 AM edit delete reply
Really shows why it's utterly important for any lethians to stay in control though!

You're not simply laying waste to a certain area. Bad and probably lethal for a lot of people, but it can be rebuild.
You're actually creating a long term death zone.

*nod nod nod* Word, Lukkai. Word.

And apparently the death zone is more then 240iles in diameter. :/
(Ps: I just noticed the unit of measurement in their world "iles" is "miles" without the 'm' XD )
rufiangel 25th Nov 2014, 11:22 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Yep! And they'll have different effects depending on which element it was.
Lukkai 25th Nov 2014, 7:43 AM edit delete reply
He just can't stop it, can he? ;)

Pretty sure that Madou would be a pen&paper rpg'ler in his free time if this played in a modern setting.
That kind of bad jokes and word plays is right up our alley.

Have fun at the wedding!

Oh gosh, I'd totally play with Madou! XD; He'd be like Matthew from Critical Hit, only maybe less references and more terrible puns.

Thank you! :D I'll see y'all when I get back!
Prayformercy 25th Nov 2014, 8:27 AM edit delete reply
wait, wait, wait.. Madou is a man?! no idea why but always thought that character was a girl.
rufiangel 25th Nov 2014, 11:24 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
This does seem to happen with my art a lot so I have not much to say in my defense, except... Madou has a some scruff on his chin... so I guess you might have missed that. XD;
prayformercy 25th Nov 2014, 2:12 PM edit delete reply
That thing on his cloak is usually in the way =D so yea i think i missed it.

I'm surprised the monocle got so many votes. I suggested it as a joke and voted for it since I figured no one else would... and yet it came in second! 8-o
Lukkai 26th Nov 2014, 7:11 AM edit delete reply
Monocles are awesome. You should have known.
