Two weeks 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~)

Ooh, this page took longer than anticipated. @_@ It's all that ice, dangit!

Anyway, happy Friday folks! :) I hope you're all having a great one!

I have less than two weeks for The Lethian pre-orders so if you guys have been thinking about picking up a copy, please do! XD;

Have a brilliant weekend, and see you all on Monday!

Ooh, this is one nice page!

Now I feel strange saying that 'cause there's an impaled man.

...But I loove the connotations their conversation has! :3

So freezing the aqua was his intent. Hmmm...

It was at least one of his maybe-intentions? XD Ehehe, we'll see :)

...i-is he healing him???

So, what key is he talking about? (besides it being mentioned in page 322)

rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:07 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Cain did, in fact, heal him XD

The metaphorical key to unshackle Madou, perhaps? ;D

Dammit cain *facepalm* THAT IS NOT AN ALLY, HE LIT YOU ON FIRE! Do you not remember the burning? i remember it, it was only a few pages ago.

But Cain is a "love all living things" White Mage (at least when his bro isn't involved).

Pulse they are all in a real life/death situation and a they now need to work together to get out alive. A talented fire Mage could be quite useful in staying warm here not to mention he knows where Kylie is so we can't have him dying. ;)

Also Mjkj: I think that's the closest your going to get to an apology. XD

Prayformercy
i dont care how talented he is ... HE LIT THEM ON FIRE.. thats not a hey lets hug it out moment. Thats a hang him from a tree and beat him with a stick like a pinata type moment. They dont need a fire mage to make fire =p and im pretty sure he can find kylie since that snow storm wasn't there a minute ago.
rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:09 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
For sure it's easy to find Kylie; just need to go to where the storm is at its worst. :P

For sure, Headgamer XD (re: love all living things, LOL)

I was wondering about that aqua freezing. Guess it didn't work. That's good... I think.

Is it bad I'm still rooting for Madou to join the party. ;P

rufiangel
Yeah, it didn't freeze the entire thing, just a part of it. XD; Fail.

I'm rather surprised readers want Madou to join the party, considering what he did XD but I guess that goes to show how much I know!! lolol

Ahaha, kinda! Well, at least, Madou won't stop Cain from trying XD;;;
Crestlinger 15th May 2015, 8:24 PM edit delete reply
Well on the plus side there were no innocent bystanders this time around. So Madou was trying to create an Aquafall. Lovely ramifications That would have had for the rest of the planet. Good thing her ice missed it on the way up and out.
mjkj 18th May 2015, 1:48 AM edit delete reply
mjkj
More like an icefall instead of aquafall...
rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:13 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
'Icefall' is ... snow. XDDD
rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:12 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Oh, she did actually hit it. :) It's just that it only froze a part of it and not the whole of it!

Still calling him Renault? Cain, pls.

Wah, that smile in the last panel...!!
And it's too cool seeing him beat up, stabbed and OH GOD NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY RUFI I AM A FREAK.

His plan failed? Nooo...
rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:14 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XD That's the name he introduced himself by, so Cain is sticking to it! lol!

AHAHAHAHA seamuffin XDDD lol you are hilarious and I love you XDDD (I should beat Madou up more :'D)

Madou took a gamble and lost. Maybe. ;)

This is an amazing page! Feels like I'm right there in the freezing cold with them. :)

I hope everyone makes it out of this without serious frost damage.

We'll see... XD;; it IS getting pretty cold up there!!

Despite everything that has happend up till now, I felt kinda bad for the guy. Still, I hope this doesn't come back to bite the good guys in the arse. :3

...But it was the "right" thing to do. *pat pats Cain* :)
rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:18 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Awww D~ XD; you are so kind~!

We'll see in time just what repercussions Cain's actions have here. In the mean time though, I hope you're right~ :D

Well, he had a plan. That plan didn't turn out to be as good as he hoped. But it still remains a mystery (Hi mi tsu!) what he wants to achieve with all that.
And how it corresponds to Abel's plans.
Whatever they are.

Oh dear...

Anyway: Healing him might actually be a smart move in this situation. Regardless of any other reasons, he could use his help now. And Madault (Renou?) is not really in a position to deny it. Nor does he have any incentive to do so (as far as we know).

They could still turn him into a pinata later if deemed necessary. Even Xellos occasionally got caught by one of Lina's fireballs.
rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:22 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ehehe, yep. We'll see in time what Madou wanted!

'Madault/Renou' LOLOL XD it's like when Goku wanted to merge Piccolo and Kami-sama's names ahahaha XDDD

We'll see how things turn out. Madou isn't quite so helpful at the moment. XD;;;

Oh Cain, so nice, so gullible XD

But this is good, it might be necessary for Madou to summon a shower of fire to fix this mess... screw the rules regarding LCFs! Save Kylie!!!
rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:25 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XDDD Cain believes his name is Renault, that's what he said it was! Lolol

Madou trying to fix this LCF with a shower of fire would be like trying to put out a fire with a gun XDDD but we'll seeee ;D

Actually, his plan didn't fail 'completely'- Kylie did release her lethiace. But with spectularly chilly results.
rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:25 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
*likes* XD <3

Depends on what is meant by 'release', I suppose...!
Lukkai 17th May 2015, 12:17 PM edit delete reply
Lukkai
Yeah, he thought he'd have the whole control thing down cold.

Didn't expect how slippery the iced slope he set Kylie on would be.

And when he got cold feet and wanted to bail, it was too late.
Lukkai 17th May 2015, 11:15 PM edit delete reply
Lukkai
I think we somehow broke the comments? My above comment was a reply to Digi5.

Edit: Nah, probably just me making a mistake due to being way too tired at that point.

Edit2: Okay, something is wrong though. Because I see the first comment as written on May 17th at 12:17 PM and the second as written on May 17th on 11:15 PM.
And I'm reasonably sure not to have used my Tardis in between.
rufiangel 18th May 2015, 1:26 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Oh, weird. Maybe it's because of weird timezone malfunctions? XD;
Lukkai 20th May 2015, 10:26 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
Wait, how did I not catch this?

12:17 PM
11:15 PM

Still that would imply nearly 11 hours passing between the two comments. Of which I'm reasonably sure it didn't. And kind of weird the system is using 12 instead of 0 there.

Edit: Mind you, I'm Central European and thus completely used to a 24 hour system for display, not 2x12 hours AM/PM.
