Hey guys~! Happy Wednesday! :D

Alright, we're going to try the Friday thing starting this week. For now I'm calling it Friday Flare 'cause I'm cheesy like that.

So here's a form, with 2 options - you can fill both if you want! XD; There is no limit to how many times you submit to this and there is no deadline. I based these ideas off of the ones you guys gave me a couple of weeks ago, thank you so much for your responses! :D

Option 1: A pairing doodle request for SF characters, i.e. list two characters you want to see together. Does not necessarily have to be romantic. (This is pretty much inspired entirely by Hatori Bisco's tankoubon bonuses for Ouran High School Host Club, if you've ever seen those!) You can pretty much request whatever you want here~

Option 2: Questions you have for any SF character or Rufi, whether they're personal or about the world/creation of SF. Feel free to ask whatever you like~



Optionally, you can click here to open the form as a separate link instead of using the embed~

Every Friday I will either post a sketch from Option 1, or a response to a question from Option 2, depending. :) Not entirely sure where on the website yet, but you'll see a note from me on Friday saying where! We'll see how it goes and make adjustments as we go on if need be.

Alright, that's it from me for now. Hope you enjoy today's update, and have a fantastic middle of the week! See you guys on Friday! XD (Ah, I missed saying that!!)

Happy Friday y'all! :)

So here we go, every Friday I'll be updating this tumblr link. You can also submit questions for the Q&A there if you like, through the 'Ask' function on tumblr.

I am also still taking submissions for pairing doodle requests and Q&A through the Google form~ I'll post a permanent link to the Google form somewhere on the main website later, but for now I'll just remind you guys it's embedded in the author's note and also can be reached right here! For everyone who has submitted an idea (or three) already, thank you very much! :D

Have a very happy Friday! :D

Hey guys, I'm extremely sorry I don't have an update for you today! :<

I've been down with the flu all weekend (it started Friday night full force) and it sapped all my time and energy trying to recover. I even took a day off work today (Monday, that is, and I'm on probation T___T) but it seems that I'm finally on the mend, because I feel a lot better now (Monday late afternoon). Unfortunately, all the time usually spent paging was spent in bed so I have nothing for you guys :'D sorryyy!!

But if all goes well I'll have an update for you guys on Wednesday! Sorry again!! But thank you for reading, as always ;__;* <3

Cain: *internally* OH NO YOU DON'T, YOU DON'T GET TO WHISPER SWEET NOTHINGS IN *MY* KYLIE'S EARS!

And while I feel you'll totally deny it, rufi, I feel like Madou may be a shipper on deck, huehuehue <3 I mean that last line is totally code for you-know-what! (Ahh, I miss the fire donuts, but Madou fire will always be purdy <3<3<3)

Aiya Cici says all the things I wanna say first. I am starting to warm up to Madou. Besides the hunky guys, mischievous characters are my weakness.

'Warming up' to Madou, eh? ;) *watches Madou set things on fire* XDD

He and Drake can be purple-head mischief-makers that set things on fire together, how about it? XD

XDDD Wow, imagine if he said that out loud, LOLOL

And the fire donut happened before he shot fire at the thing XD it's the casting phase, lolol, don't worry, it still happens! XD

(Hmmmm Madou did call them a package deal but what does that mean really ;D)

Way to be creepy, bud. Well, he definitely brings a whole new... dimension to the team.

XDDD A creepy dimension? Lolol!

My sister does think that Madou livens things up a bit... ;D lolol XD

Madou is ever so the guy who even after he becomes part of the party, makes it a thing to irritate everyone. XP

Getting Kylie all flustered and then burning Cain hard there without casting fire.

He does it so naturally he doesn't even have to try, really XDD lolol!

Ehhh, Kylie can take care of herself for the most part, don't worry XD now that she has her Lethiace again, especially ;D

And we'll see about it XD I'm not sure yet either if it'll come up again but if it does, then we'll find out ;)

Who's slapping who? XD Sorry, I'm just being terrible and giggling over the idea of Cain slapping Madou XDD

Rufi has been playing us this whole time with the CainxKylie & NemixMike ship drawings. The REAL end game ship will be KyliexMadou, NemixCain, & MikexJinn ;)

(Jk, jk, please don't Rufi -______-)

He's probably said something about the brother's... prowess.

Little does he know that Kylie already got at least a visual impression.


Yes, feel free to read this comment as by a voice coming from somewhere beneath the grid over a manhole.

Lukkai, I thought you were talking about Kylie's brother at first and my face was just a picture of horror XDDD

I voted for both, so there would be more variety.

rufiangel
Hey sigpig! :D

LOL, yes I saw your votes XD thank you! But... in case you didn't know already, the form is actually for submitting doodle ideas or questions; I'm fielding both on Friday XD;; just a matter of me picking which one I feel I can do on that week. So feel free to submit ideas!
Kat 17th Mar 2016, 2:20 AM edit delete reply
I was going to say "Madou, I don't think Cain is going to like that", but I think it's more appropriate to say "Madou, I really don't think Kylie is going to like that." Kylie looks much more annoyed than Cain right now... xD
rufiangel 18th Mar 2016, 1:04 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XD Lol, Kat!

I'll say this... Madou's position from when Cain was walking up from behind Kylie meant he could see Cain, while Kylie couldn't. ;)

Hm, getting jealous maybe? No need to worry, Kylie wouldn't go for a guy who nearly killed her XD
rufiangel 18th Mar 2016, 1:11 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XD I think Cain's reaction can be interpreted in different ways, though you are probably right, Proxy! lolol XD

Oh, I first read that as "Chain reactions"... XD
HeSerpenty 17th Mar 2016, 12:40 PM edit delete reply
HeSerpenty
Hehehehe is that a look of jealousy on cain's face?
DANGIT I wanna know what he said to her!

Btw the lighting in the last coupla scenes has been spot on! Gorgeous!!! <333
rufiangel 18th Mar 2016, 1:14 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Lolol~! I wonder what Cain's reaction means too ;D

We'll see about what Madou said later, maybe? XDD it probably isn't very important~ ;)

And awww Serpy!! ;3;* Thank you so much, I really appreciate it! <3 Night-time scenes are hard since it should really be pitch-black, but since this is Archaeia I say random floating green lights in the forest exist at night so there you go, lightsource bam XDDD

And the Madlie shipping continues. ;-)

Part of me wants to think he said something romantic & part of me wants to think he literally said, "Whisper whisper." ;-)
rufiangel 18th Mar 2016, 1:17 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Lolol! Madlie! XD

To be honest it did cross my mind to have Madou literally say "Whisper whisper" just to troll the heck out of Cain (LOL) buuut Madou chose to say something else XD

We'll see about what he said later, maybe... ;)
Crestlinger 18th Mar 2016, 2:18 AM edit delete reply
So is that coin he's holding holding a brief flame spell, acting as a focus or something consumed as a catalyst material?
Kat 18th Mar 2016, 4:04 AM edit delete reply
I don't think he's holding a coin, it looks to me like the tip of his finger is glowing as he casts the fire spell
rufiangel 18th Mar 2016, 1:18 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Yep, Kat! :D *hands Kat a cookie*
rufiangel 18th Mar 2016, 1:18 PM edit delete reply

Ah, what Kat said! XD; It was a very brief shot of fire~ an extremely low level fire spell :)

rufiangel
Awww, thank you Mjkj XD <3 so glad my alliteration hasn't chased you guys off ahahaha XD

Madou DID kindasorta threaten to kill Leela if she followed Abel through on something, that might be enough to make her want to kill him XD

Nah, I like alliterations :)

Maybe you can rename that into: FanciFul Friday Flare? ;) =P

That fire looks especially nice! But Oy! Madou~ You don't get to whisper sweet nothings in to Kylie's ear! lol.
rufiangel 23rd Mar 2016, 6:14 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Madou whispers sweet nothings in everybody's ear whenever he gets the chance to, he finds it funny when some people recoil back in horror/disgust XD

And thank you! <3 I'm glad the fire looks okay! :D

Thanks Robert! :D Now if only I could stop coughing like I'm trying to turn my lungs inside out all the time that would be great :'D but hey, baby steps, baby steps. At least I can draw and type and do things now, as opposed to lying in bed XD;;;

That flu and heavy colds seem to be a worldwide thing currently. My mom caught one as well (better now, though you can still hear it in her voice), as well as a whole number of other people I know.

Hope you're feeling better by now. And don't fret about not having anything for us. Sleep it off first, then get back to drawing when hale and hearty.

rufiangel
Hale and hearty <3

Thanks Lukkai! :) Well, to be honest I'm still not doing great - my throat is being a total jerk and I'm on a cocktail on meds to keep the abdominal pain down - but I'm definitely doing a lot better than I was last weekend, which is a blessing. :D <3 Friday Flare should go off without a hitch!

All things considered, she's really holding back. I keep thinking she's gonna pop him in the chin with how he keeps invading her personal space.

In a lot of ways I think Kylie is 'resigned' XD;; (it might also just be that it takes considerably less effort to brush him off instead of punching him XD)
