At what point will she realize that just maybe she kinda sorta bit off more than she can chew? ;-)

I'm pretty sure she's feeling it in the last panel there. XD

Have fun, Rufi <3 *hugs*


So, Seia is treating his wound with ice bandaid - or is that ice armor...?

Seia definitely needled Ophelia with that... (sorry) '^_^

Hmm, Silyk got a silky touch to catch her...

rufiangel
Aww, thank you Mjkj! <3 I did! :D It was exhausting though XD

And~ it's ice armour XD ehehehe

He was just poking holes in her defense is all ;) (don't be sorry, I know you're not really anyway ;D)

Silyk did her best~ she only wishes she could've stuck around longer to keep her summoner protected XP

Rinkel
Hahaha yeah get rekt Ophelia

That said I'm a lot little worried about Seia because if Ophelia's supposed to be a pretty good fighter/summoner and Seia seems to have the upper hand in the fight this early it's making me wonder if things will end badly for him please don't do that I won't be able to take it unless more kittens are provided.

Seia's a tough cookie, don't worry too much! ... I think you don't have to, anyway...? >.>

Well, looks like things are getting interesting. Never let yourself think because you MAY have hit the "Untouchable", he won't hit back HARD.
rufiangel 8th Jul 2015, 11:42 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ehehehe, glad you're finding it interesting so far, MST3K~ X3 this fight is long! (For SF, anyway)

Seia really doesn't hold back; 'merciless' is his nature for the most part... >.<

Yeppers, though to a figurative degree I'm sure it's true too XD

And thank you very much! :D *hug* It went well!!

Have fun! Let us know how it gose!

Lol, still untouched. But she's not doing to bad herself. I'm hopeing she figures out that she dosen't stand a change and GTFOs (and not what everyone else is theorizing).
rufiangel 8th Jul 2015, 11:46 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Thank you Headgamer! <3 :D It went really well!

She's not doing too bad so far, you're right! But at the moment she has two summons out and can't summon anything new for a while since she pulled out so many at once not too long ago. If she thinks she stands a chance with just Huarin and Insidious, she'll stick around, but otherwise...
Prayformercy 6th Jul 2015, 8:14 PM edit delete reply
Prayformercy
She seems worried but not scared yet, which makes me wonder if shes just a diversion. Her shots so far seem weak at best and is focusing on defense so just kinda makes me think along the lines of just dont die and we win kinda strats. Though to be fair, Seia isnt leaving alot of room for counter attacks so i could be wrong.

He already sensed and took out two of her comrades whom it appers she didn't even know were there. Still what you say is posable.

Indeed, if she IS diverting his attention, what could she be diverting his attention from?

The book launch? Ohh! Good luck Rufi!!:D
Dat middle panel. That has to be my favorite attack so far from anyone, it just sounds so cool x3 It was hella cool when Kylie did it too~
eldestdawn 6th Jul 2015, 11:54 PM edit delete reply
well, he did teach her how to fight and use her abilities since they are both ice lethians...so it's entirely possible that she learned it from him.
rufiangel 8th Jul 2015, 11:52 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
I can confirm that she definitely learnt that one from him! XD; Ten Thousand Needles is a Knight ability, so it's not just a Lethian Knight one. You can charge it up with an ice-element though with Ice Breath (that's what Seia does in panel 2 on this page), but it's not necessary (Kylie goes about never using her Lethiace most of the time).

This attack originated with spears, though over time it's been adapted for the sword as well. When it's used with a spear, though, the reach is farther! :D

Thanks seamuffin! :) The book launch went really well so I'm very blessed and grateful for everyone's support <3

And I'm glad people like Ten Thousand Needles XD <333 ehehehehe

The Chessmaster 7th Jul 2015, 3:57 AM edit delete reply
The Chessmaster
Okay, so, it looks like Rua has an okay melee attack and grants flight, Silyk provides a barrier that reduces damage taken, and Huarin has some sort of quick magical attack that looks to be fire-based. I'm guessing the biggest threat here is Insidious, since they're being saved, which means they probably have something pretty nasty.

Good luck on the book launch. Hope it goes well.
rufiangel 8th Jul 2015, 11:55 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Wow Chessmaster, your username is highly appropriate XDDD <3

Indeed, Insidious hasn't really been doing anything so far, it seems. Hmmmm... we'll see just how nasty it is soon enough. ;D

And thank you very much! <3 :D The book launch went very well! X3
Crestlinger 7th Jul 2015, 5:06 AM edit delete reply
Things going for Seia: overwhelmed opponent, not even breaking a sweat, goons out of the picture, ice healing, and only had to bust out one Actual spear move thus far (that he was probably the one that taught it to Kylie so any of her other moves he likely has as well).

Things going for Ophelia: first Actual hit scored, most summons still up and able to fight, and potential Other potions on hand.
rufiangel 8th Jul 2015, 11:56 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Interesting analysis of the situation Crestlinger! :)

Seia did teach Kylie a lot of her moves, yep!

And I think I should probably make it clearer so I'll update the page later I think, but Ophelia lost Rua and Silyk on this page. XP She's only got Huarin and Insidious left~
Lukkai 7th Jul 2015, 9:49 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
Truth be told, that was a very close call for Seia. And catching that blast unprotected might have been decisive.

So, it's not really going easy for him at all. Granted, his strength seems to have been underestimated by his opponent. Which she came very close to pay dearly for (still might, but the fight could still go both ways). So that helped him at the start.
But that advantage is gone now. She's learned to properly respect his power and should be less cocky and more focused from now on.

rufiangel
I once read a Korean comic (it's a really old one XD) where there was this super scary, super fast opponent who had never been hit in his life. A girl manages to trick him into lowering his guard and punches him, and he instantly K.O.s because he's never been hit in his life, so his pain tolerance is zero XD

I just got amused imagining Seia being of the same kind of 'Untouchable' XDDD

Wooo! Is she going to do something next or is she thanking because the fight is over and X was proven? So many questions!
rufiangel 8th Jul 2015, 12:00 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Hmm~ she's thanking Silyk here for protecting her back against Frost Field, I think. XD But will she do something next? We'll see...!

Good luck with the book launch, my friend! That's so exciting!

Also, this page is seriously legit! Ten Thousand Needles is the kamehamaha of this series! I get so pumped whenever it's used!

Awww thank you Outlaw!!! X3 <3 The book launch went really well, I feel super blessed by everyone's support! :D

I'm very happy you like the page and Ten Thousand Needles! XDDD The 'kamehameha' of the series, LOL! <333

Thanks always for your lovely comments, Outlaw! X3 <3

Hey.

You know what Seia should totally do to make Ophelia snap?

He should totally grab Silyk in front of her... and rip off her wings. (Seia don't do this you will doom yourself doing this XD)
rufiangel 8th Jul 2015, 12:04 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
OMG CICI WUT :'D :'D :'D

*imagines it and weeps in the corner*

(Btw I didn't make it clear enough so I'll update the page later XD but Silyk's time is up on this page, so Seia can't do this thing to make Ophelia snap :'D)

Since he was touched now, perhaps he may have to change his nickname. I propose "Ever-Victorious" in honor of certain army in Robert Jordan's Books, which no matter how many times it was defeated, always came back to win, thus erasing the defeat.
