ONE WEEK 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~)

Surprise! Another "double page" update! Okay, but not really. XD;

And Cici told me to post this at the most (in)appropriate time to do so for this chapter, so:

image

Yes, I drew that. Yes, that is a cameo from Starry Day. Yes, this is the best-worst thing ever. Enjoy! ;D

Have a fantastic middle-of-the-week, and see you on Friday! :) And I know this is going to really make you want to kill me, but as I'll be travelling most of Thursday, Friday's strip may go up a little late, depending. I'll let you know if it does!

Oh god, hes going to try hugging her isn't he? Icicles in the chest mean no, Cain. It was a very subtle hint i know but he should have picked up on it.

It *was* too subtle for him... '^_^

That is Not how you go about repaying favours when someone says 'If I scratch your back you'll have to scratch mine.'

Hmm. Can we have this qualify as what the seer said about his chain curse becoming more painful than it was previously? Would certainly qualify and I can't think of anything up to current that would top this.

If he doesn't survive at least he won't die lonely. Just don't try to get any closer either way until you've dealt with those, lest ye impale her too.
Crestlinger 21st May 2015, 7:40 AM edit delete reply
Dang, meant for this to be serperate, must have misclicked. Ah well, stay chill Cain.
Lukkai 21st May 2015, 8:02 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
I'd say he's pretty chill now.

Though Kylie is ice cold.

Showing him the cold shoulder, really she is.

Put him on ice, so to speak.

Waaaaaahhhhhh...

Early update... :D ...without announcement :(


Outch...

What happened???

Is the hurt physical (real blood)? or emotional (figurative hurting his heart)?

(if physical: quick self heal some more, Cain!)

Early updates don't need announcements XD

And maybe both, Mjkj~ ;D

Ah, well usually you announce your new page at twitter after you post it - which you did not do at all this time... '^_^

Latest page according to your twitter page is page 332...

Ohhh yeah, sorry. In Korea I didn't have a constant access to Wi-Fi so sometimes it was just plain impossible to post an update!
mjkj 22nd May 2015, 8:57 PM edit delete reply
mjkj
Ah, ok :)

...any chance of knowing when the update will come?

(no hurry I will wait as long as it takes - but an estimate would be appreciated...)

Sorry Mjkj... No proper estimate yet ^^;; Sometime on Saturday!

Awww thank you Hapy!! X3

Cain... Ehh, he's been skewered a bunch of times before. ;D
eldestdawn 23rd May 2015, 4:12 AM edit delete reply
while it's true that he's been in painful situations like this before, that doesn't make the current situation less painful.

Fair point! XD;;
mwa ha ha ha 20th May 2015, 6:20 PM edit delete reply
I'm going to take a wild guess and say that Cain's chains will be broken.

Wow that would be really great... ^_^
Lukkai 21st May 2015, 8:03 AM edit delete reply

Not if the premise upon which they are broken is "Upon Death".

Dang it, rufi! Due to how comments are shown, I cannot tell whether that was an answer to my comment or one of the others!

And that does kinda change the whole tone of yours.

She's sliced Cain across the chest before, so this may only be just a liiiittle bit worse. XD

Cain dies. End of comic. Pack up and go home everyone this is Wolf's Rain 2.0.


J/k of course. Cain won't die. The power of Love / Main Charicter armor / heal spam will pull him though. :)
...I hope :1
mjkj 21st May 2015, 1:57 PM edit delete reply
mjkj
Ok, I guess Cain will die then madou revives him - afterwards - and Cain has lost his chains because he *had* died...

...but was there not something about that that prevents this...?

rufiangel 22nd May 2015, 12:14 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Well, for starters, I'd like to know how Madou would revive Cain XDDD
mjkj 22nd May 2015, 8:59 PM edit delete reply
mjkj
Oh? he can not? I thought he was a mage also? or is revive limited to a certain type of mage?
rufiangel 22nd May 2015, 10:02 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Correct. :) White mages can heal and revive. Black mages cast offensive types of magic.
rufiangel 22nd May 2015, 10:04 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
That said, Madou may be capable of casting a very low level heal with aid of a seal, but he'd never be able to cast Revive as it is too high level. XD;

Ah, thank you for the clarification :D
rufiangel 22nd May 2015, 12:14 AM edit delete reply

I haven't seen Wolf's Rain so now I wonder if you've just spoilt that for me XDDD

Anyway you guys know me, I am too soft to do something as bad as THAT, right? ;)
Headgamer 22nd May 2015, 4:31 AM edit delete reply
Headgamer
Let's just say watch Wolf's Rain if you want to be sad but have a glimmer of hope pull you through.... Then watch the OVAs that consist of the last few episodes if you want that hope to be suddenly and brutally ripped apart shred by painful shred until nothing remains.

The intro song brought me to tears for years to come.
rufiangel 22nd May 2015, 9:13 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
WELL. Whenever I'm in the mood to have my hope 'suddenly and brutally ripped apart shred by painful shred' I'll watch it, thanks Headgamer XDDD

No way we are done with that gutbuster.

It'll be a frosty day in Cain's belly when we don't have another pun hidden away.

Cain really needs to learn to take it slow.

Cain wanted to get through Kylie. Instead, she got a couple icicles to get through Cain. Well now...

Yup, he wanted to get through to her - but now she got through him as she threw him a cold don't come near me hoping she gets through to him and that he will get it in him (or in his head) to leave her what she really does not want ... and I am rambling, sorry shutting up now - any minute now... ...really...

Hey, you can see Cain's chains. That's an nice touch.

Also, he might be dead now, and that sucks.

Ehehe, thank you Karda :D There have been times I *should* have drawn his chains when I didn't, so I'm glad I chose not to skimp that detail this time!

I thought the chains would break too, but that would be too easy... Let's see if hurting her friend will snap her out of her current cold front.

Aww Nef... you're prolly right though, that would be too easy. He should get skewered at least five different places before getting anywhere with those chains. ;D
