Hi guys!

Aaand yeah, that didn't take so long after all, Madou. Because you weren't even planning to tell the whole story anyway. What a nerve.

Btw, I have just a couple of redrawn strips post-campaign, if you guys wanna check those out~

The redrawn strips are also on Tapastic as well~

I think that's it from me this update, catch you guys again on Friday! Feel free to hang out in the forums between updates, too~ X3

Madou, I don't think you should be putting "Well... CRAP." into a children's storybook :,D You were doing so well up until that (hilarious) part lol

Princess Kylie, so purdy, so doomed <3

I'm more curious now about the key than what was in the box, honestly...

And I will check those redrawn strips out~!

Ahahaha, the key thing is important! :D Things should hopefully become more obvious as the chapters pan out~~!

And yay I hope you liked the redrawn stuff :D <3

Oh, Madou. You and you silly cryptic words. XD

I'm going to go out on a limb her in thinking the whole 'key' thing is something to with her emotions maybe.
rufiangel 24th Jul 2015, 4:43 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Yes, it's probably a good idea to not take most of what Madou says literally. XD;

Her emotions are causing *some* finicky problems re: the 'key', yes. XP If only she didn't lash out tons of mass-destructive magic everytime she tried to use her Lethiace... :P

Madou is looking for the key to get his mind back :P

Hmm, princess Kylie... XD

rufiangel
Ehhh, I don't know if a key will help Madou gain his sanity back. XD;;

Kylie has always been known as 'Ice Princess', after all~

So what your saying is...
A) Your an idiot who acts before he thinks
B) You happily burn, murder, and destroy all in your path without conscience to work towards your goal.
C) You still won't tell me what exactly you want or what key I have that could possibly free you. Because I don't see any shackles and if they could stop you if think they would have by now.

"Well, crap"

Hahahahaha!

I'm sure this story wasn't so funny to him at the time, was it...;~;
I love how full of humor he is, though.:'D
(Hahahah Kylie as a princess)

OHh, redrawn strips~~

rufiangel
Ahahaha XD yeahhh... at the time, though... well, one day, we'll get there. ;D

I enjoy writing Madou in general, it's always nice to have a character that's near-impossible to offend and always smiles no matter what :D

If my characters had that allergy, no one would be able to go near certain characters without developing hives... :'D

Can't decide if this is touching or creepy. Probably creepy.... But I'm going to go with touching. Don't let me down Rufi.

rufiangel
Awww Allzephyr! X3 <333

It... might be a strange combination of both I'm gunning for XD lolol, but yes, Madou, you better not let anyone down~ ;)

Hmmmmm, okay so Madou/Renault(Did he lose his name as part of the contract? Is Madou just a title??? Questions. >>) is obsessed with some box which is probably symbolic for something else, but so many questions. I'm almost sympathetic for Madou now o_O Rufi what are you doing.

(This page is great by the way, it shows the character changes and everything well eee)
rufiangel 24th Jul 2015, 5:10 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Mwahahahahaha XD <3 Hmmm... indeed, what's with this name change thing? ;)

I'm happy to hear you're feeling stuff, this is very good indeed :D <333 thank you Spellu! *huggu*

(yaaaaay :D <333)

XDDD I'm sure many are waiting for Kylie to smack him about! But yayyy, glad you've been enjoying the 'fairy tale'~! X3 thankyew Rinkel!

Betting said key is related to whoever was controlling her mother to draw that very detailed magic circle she recently recalled.

Mmmhmm, it might be! ;)
Passingthru 23rd Jul 2015, 5:48 AM edit delete reply
Poetic. Is his heart as deep as his understanding? Or is he just a silver tongued devil? I totally missed it if he is being literal.
rufiangel 24th Jul 2015, 5:13 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Hellu! :D Oh, for sure I'd say to not take him literally for most of if not everything in this story of his. ;) It'll hopefully grow clearer as the chapters pan out...!

Ah, that's what the key's for. Makes sense. Not sure how Aquas fit into this quite yet, although I suspect that the Holy Capital's Aqua and the Aquafall earlier both factor into it.
rufiangel 24th Jul 2015, 5:14 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Yep! The Aquas do seem to have something to do with everything, though how much of it is under Kylie's influence remains to be seen~ ;)

Umm... I love you Madou but.. if you could get to the box so easily... isn't there a chance that what you wanted was just.. moved to some more secure place? ;)
rufiangel 24th Jul 2015, 5:14 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ahahaaha Saari-nii~ X3 I agree! That is, assuming that Madou is being literal with his tale...

Yep, Matt! You read him right. His current motivations are propelled by something still unseen... >___>
LigerLychan 23rd Jul 2015, 5:44 PM edit delete reply
so what we're getting here is Madou's motivation abridged huh? can't wait to here the full story behind this one. also abel's smile in this page makes him seem like all sorts of creepy. i love it
rufiangel 24th Jul 2015, 5:19 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Hellu~! :D
Ehehehe, I hope to eventually show his full backstory later on!
I'm also happy you're loving Abel's creepiness... XD we'll find out just how creepy Abel can get later on~~! <3 ;D

OOhhhhhhhhh I think I'm starting to get it! Oh Rufi you are a BRILLIANT storyteller, my friend! Ooo I can't wait to see where this relationship leads. Of course there is always that chance Madou is just full of it...... >__>

rufiangel
Awww Serps!! X3 <333 *huggu* <3 thankyew, you're always so encouraging!
There is definitely always the chance that Madou is full of it, but... let's just say that Kylie is constantly rolling for Insight in this conversation so far, and what she's finding is... surprising. ;)

Since he needs an ice lethiace, that silhouette could also be Seia, couldn't it...?
