(Note: please check this DA journal out to help me promote the novel and maybe get a freebie bit of art out of it~)

Happy Wednesday! :D Good thing Mikey has practice for catching falling Nemis out of the sky, eh?

I have a shout out I want to make - TheD-Wrek, creator of 24/7 fame, recently got into a car accident. Thankfully he's fine, but he could use some people commissioning him for stuff so he can pay for repairs. His commission details are here, and they're really low-priced for his quality! He's the dude behind these gorgeous pieces of SF fanart if you need a reference. ;D So please go help a guy out and get some great art back in return if you're able!

I think that's it for today's update. Have a great Wednesday! And see you guys on Friday~ :)

XD Mikey did indeed get Leela (or JAG) right where it'd hurt~! I'm happy you like the update Serpy-kins <3 XD <3

These pages have been just non-stop movement - I am happy that they're working out so far but I admit I am looking forward to Chapter Six for a little bit of relaxation on that count XD;;; (just a little)

How is Mike going to smash Ren without his hammer? Can Nemi pull one out of thin air and give it to him? ;)

Or maybe he has some sort of return spell.
rufiangel 16th Apr 2015, 12:20 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ahahaha, oh man, if only hammerspace worked in SF like it does in Ranma 1/2. XD;

Mike lost his hammer on this page, actually. He could have just gone up to where Leela is at and smashed her properly, but he made a split second decision so he could knock Leela out and also save Nemi from fall damage. In other words, he sacrificed his weapon - at least for this particular moment. Maybe he can pick it up later...?
mjkj 16th Apr 2015, 12:52 AM edit delete reply
mjkj
...or he lets Nemi pick it up like last time (when she is healed)...

The alternate interpretation of Ren makes him look so much cuter in that last panel.

(PFFHAHAHAHHA ALT TEXT. Ren doesn't deserve anyone to catch him!)
(Oh no...Poor D-Wrek!D:
That's awful! At least he's ok!)

HOLY SHIT THAT HAMMER TO THE FACE! AWESOME! DAMN! And well fuckin' deserved for sure! I hope she broke somethin'!

Gosh this is going better than expected, but I'm sure Ren will ruin things

XDDD Awww, poor daddy Ren! (seamuffin, check out Cici's comment below XD)

I did particularly enjoy working out the best angle to fully bring out the knock, LOL. :D I was tempted to draw her teeth getting knocked out too but decided it might be a little too graphic, but you can just acknowledge that mentally XD

(Ren is a ruiner of things indeed D: let's see if he'll ruin this on Friday too... oh wait ISN'T THAT YOUR BIRFDAY)

Get over it, man up, and you might actually have somebody want to catch you. Meanwhile, you'd better take good care of those little ones... I'll be checking up on them!

Hmm... I'm not sure about her constitution and I know head wounds will often bleed badly even if their nothing big at all.

But it does look as if Leela ate more than she dished out, at least in those last two pages.

Also Mike and Nemi... I've got a whole fleet under sail with the ships I've built for the pair!

Mandatory "Good catch, Mike!" pun is mandatory.

And I'm not sure whether Ren is pissed, contemplating his further combat options or that's just his "Well, that escalated (went South) quickly."-face.
With Nemi out and Mike currently without a weapon, he's options are actually better than one would think on first glance, by the way.
rufiangel 17th Apr 2015, 11:07 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
I know it's a spoiler for today's page but basically, Leela's constitution stat is rubbish, so you can rest easy in that regard XD

The alt-text for this strip was very nearly "Nice catch!" actually! XD; But I went for making fun of Ren instead, LOL. Re: his expression, btw, I'd think it's all of those combined. XD; And you are correct indeed re: your last statement. :)

That hammer to the head looks like it hurt.
Micheal saves the day again, what a guy.
rufiangel 17th Apr 2015, 11:09 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Oh, yep. Definitely hurt! ;P

Ehehehe, I'm happy Michael gets some love :D lol, he's a gentleman at heart XD

Good thing he managed to hit Leela on that throw, though, imagine if he'd missed XD that would've sucked XDDD

Nice! Mike, you need to buy an axe instead of this hammer, would work more permanently ;D

They can't use revive after the head is off, right? ;D
rufiangel 17th Apr 2015, 11:10 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Nope, they cannot.... XD;;;; Gosh, I'd definitely need a Violence tag if Mike gets an axe to decapitate people hereafter XDDD

(Mike: I... don't like decapitating people... >_>)
