Less than a month left for pre-orders!
(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 Monday! :) Double page update for you guys because I love you! And you know, to kinda make up for last week's break~ XD; I hope you enjoy it, see you on Wednesday!

EDIT: Some links to help readers connect dots if they like :)
Kylie recounts what she can of her mother, Kylie tries to use her Lethiace for the first time in the webcomic and sees fragments, Kylie uses her Lethiace for the second time and sees more fragments, Kylie explains what her Lethiace situation is and this flashback hints at the roots of Kylie's internal struggles. I know that at a three-a-week schedule it's easy to forget what's happening, so hopefully this helps!

I hope I manage to express the past well, it'll be a challenge getting everything across in just a few pages! >_<)/

XDDD A plaster? Awww <3 that is a super cute image to me for some reason XDDD

I'm so glad you find it intriguing ;w;* I hope it'll turn out to be an interesting sequence...!

Awwwww...

Poor Kylie *hugs her*

a pity I can not read all because it is blocked by the other squares... :(

Well, that one there could read silvermage...


@alt text: oh? there was a time like that??? *blinks* really???

rufiangel 5th May 2015, 12:43 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ahaha, does it look like 'silvermage'?? XD; That... lends itself to interesting implications so I'll let you think that for now XDDD

Re: alt-text, I know, this whole chapter has just been one intense ab-crunch. XD;;;

If you mean the one I think you mean, my take it it's "rage" actually. And refering to some of the voices she hears.

I should probably show what the text says some point in the future, huh? XD;

Yeah, that would be nice... :D

Definitely so, yes.

Dang. Things are definitely not looking good. She apparently chose to remember events differently than they actually were to shield herself from the horrors. O_o

This will not end well.
rufiangel 5th May 2015, 12:44 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Yep, it would appear that way~ >_<)/

Kylie's a fairly tough girl... on the outside. XP But we'll see...!

Poor Kylie.

I wonder who attacked her parents.
Digi5 4th May 2015, 8:56 PM edit delete reply
Digi5
Like mjkj pointed out, one of those hidden bubbles looks like it could read "silvermage". If Kylie saw something terrible that Abel didn't want anybody to see, that would explain why Abel is hunting down all the Ice Lethians (especially if he didn't remember who saw him)...

rufiangel
Have you caught up?? :D <3

And wow! XD; Interesting... I... I can't comment on this indepth, which probably says a lot! XD
Digi5 5th May 2015, 9:13 PM edit delete reply
Digi5
Oh, yes. Finally caught up...! *pants heavily as if just completed a marathon* ...And I just had to get a comicfury account to comment in the future on this comic and other great ones! :D

Hmmmmm, you can't comment on this indepth... :D ...I like when the author gives us readers clues. And when other comments/commenters spark ideas in my mind. Like, were her parents (or even just her mom) ice users, as well? And if that's the case, maybe Kylie wasn't the one to... (should I complete this interesting train of thought?)

rufiangel
XD <3 So glad to have you here, Digi5!! *hug* Welcome, welcome! X3

Feel free to theorise! I love reading theories XD <3

I try to respond to all comments without being too spoilery~ XD;;; (CiciEnixa will probably be able to tell you when I'm hiding something though, because she can read me like a book OTL)

mjkj
I would guess her father was an ice user...
rufiangel 6th May 2015, 8:00 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Certainly reasonable as a guess!
Headgamer 5th May 2015, 1:31 PM edit delete reply
Headgamer
O, I'm sure the silvermage is involved somehow. I got lots of theroys to that end.

However, it was said Able is hunting down ALL the lethians he's simply starting with the ice users for some reason. So maybe but it's probubly something more.
rufiangel 5th May 2015, 12:45 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Her parents? XD; Hmm, I only see her mama there...

Oh no, poor Kylie! That's such a depressing flashback, oh jeez.;~;
(But put together SO cool!:D)

rufiangel
S-sorryyyyy XD;;; *cowers* I didn't know it'd come across so depressingly until I drew it, LOL. I know, I'm dense XDDD

I'm glad you find it cool, though~~!! ;w;* <3 thankyew seamuffin! (and make sure you get your rest dear)

Hurray double long page!
Hrm, are we going to get to the bottom of Kylie's repressed memories?
rufiangel 6th May 2015, 1:02 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ehehe :D

We'll be getting somewhere with them, yes. XD;; Though I'll be upfront about this and say that what we see will probably raise more questions than answer anything. But we'll seeeee XD
Crestlinger 5th May 2015, 5:09 AM edit delete reply
The problem here is that she's left these events frozen in time so long that it takes a Nuke level do or die scenario to thaw them out.
Thinking more than an ice shield is going to come out as a result though. Madou had best be ready or Best Be Frozen.

"Frozen in time"

I see what you did there.

Well...

If she's to ever overcome her control problems, there will be no way around facing their origin.

I think so, too! >_<)o

Soo... Madou has now taken up counseling, it would seem.

What's his hourly rate?

Maaaaybeee... XD

But then again, it's nearly the end of this chapter so unless I intend to end on a cliffhanger, nothing too bad can happen. Probably.

Maybe. XD;;;
