Did we know before now that Sir Bradley was a Lethian, and I just missed it?
Kat 8th Nov 2016, 4:21 AM edit delete reply
I don't think it was ever mentioned that he was a Lethian-- I'm assuming he just met Seia at some point and Kylie was also there (Seia is kind of famous, so it wouldn't surprise me too much that he's met plenty of people of Sir Bradley's status...)
Gilrandir 8th Nov 2016, 7:31 AM edit delete reply
He might conceivably have met one (or even both) of them in the past, since Seia is a celebrity. But, I doubt he'd be so free with their nicknames (or even know them) unless he were much more closely involved with the order. That's just my guess, of course.
Lukkai 8th Nov 2016, 11:16 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
Closely involved doesn't necessarily mean being part of it though. As far as we know so far, the order is keeping rather close tabs on Lethiace users. One being that far up in the administration of a nation seems unlikely. Kylie not knowing about it seems highly unlikely.

And it wouldn't be the first non-Lethian to call one of them by their nickname. I somehow get the feeling those are more likely to be given by people they faced (and that somehow survived) then by people from the order itself.

@Lukkai: Those are valid points too! I'd like to comment further but...

Okay, maybe this is giving too much away but I'll just drop a link to this page (and I guess the next following that, too) and let you connect the dots as we go on. ;)

@Kat: I think those are pretty valid assumptions XD

rufiangel
@Gil: Woo! XD I like how you think! Don't worry, you haven't missed anything. This scene will make more sense later on. It's one of those things I kind of had to write the way it is because if I didn't, people would go back and say 'waaait a minute' XD so I kindly ask for your patience in regards to further elaboration on how Bradley and Kylie know each other~

Also, seeing Seia called a 'celebrity' feels so odd! XD;;; But I guess it's... true. O_o;; Hum!

Uh oh. There's familiarity here. Duhn, duhn, DUHNNNNNNNNNNN!!!

And Cain being brought up is not a good thing 'm sure.

rufiangel
Yep, you said it MST3K; a chord has been struck and it's hard to tell just how major or minor it is... ;)

Wow, Rufi...

You stayed up till two??? XD

Rest well (and quick) =) *hugs*

Oh, the defender knows Cain... and Kylie...

...what game are you playing...???

rufiangel 11th Nov 2016, 2:03 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
I did stay up until 2 for this one XD; just trying to keep as close to schedule as possible... :'D

Thank you XD

It's probably more accurate to say the Defender knows who Cain is ;)

Ohhh! Now there's a surprise.
B-but... Uh-oh.D:

Surpriiise! :D *pops the popper*

The Defender cottoned on rather quickly, yep. :')

That's a nice surprise. Hopefully Kylie can use this in road.
Lukkai 8th Nov 2016, 6:54 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
It certainly don't hurt in this case. Although it obviously means that her being a Lethian Knight is out as well. At least for him.

I wonder how he'll react on her already knowing about Cain. (She does since www.serpamiaflare.com/comics/274 after all.)
rufiangel 11th Nov 2016, 2:07 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Lukkai: I hope it wasn't too lukewarm a reaction XD;;; he was mostly prompting for confirmation!
rufiangel 11th Nov 2016, 2:06 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Headgamer: Headgamer :D wbwbwb

Ehehehe. Certainly, someone has to use this, or it'd be a waste~ ;)

Playin close to the chest I see, Sir Bradley! What's your game here, I wonder...
rufiangel 11th Nov 2016, 2:27 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
That is exactly how Sir Bradley plays, DLK! Such apt expression <3

Plot twist. So can I call into questioning he is actually aware that Archer is Kylie's brother?
Lukkai 10th Nov 2016, 10:03 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
Lyn, not Archer. Archer is the only one who knows that a family member is searching for Lyn and close yet. As far as we know that is.

Bradley knowing at least something about it is not out of the question though.

Whoops, I was sleepy typing that comment, my bad.
rufiangel 11th Nov 2016, 2:28 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@azure-rin: no worries, thankyew for commenting even when you're sleepy dear panda <3 XD

That's a valid question, though hopefully with some inference, we can see how much Bradley knows and doesn't know... ;)

*Grins. Wait till he finds out about Nemi.
Kat 10th Nov 2016, 1:01 PM edit delete reply
"wait till he finds out about Nemi"
but WE haven't found out about Nemi yet! I mean, we know something's up, but we don't really know what yet :/
rufiangel 11th Nov 2016, 2:30 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Kat: seriously, what's up with the author being so vague about that? :/

... imsorry :'DDD
rufiangel 11th Nov 2016, 2:30 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@crest: Is this following from the 'Nemi is a princess' theory? XD;;;;

It's only a problem when Madou sticks a sign on Cain's back reading "Kick me, I'm the banished prince of the Holy Capital!" ;-)
Headgamer 10th Nov 2016, 10:35 PM edit delete reply
Headgamer
Talk about Madou, he's not with them is he? I wonder if he'll come crashing in at some point...
rufiangel 11th Nov 2016, 2:32 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Headgamer: Ah, you know, I feel like readers miss him a lot XD he gets mentioned even when he's not on-screen quite a bit in the comments~~! >_>

Without giving too much away, I'll say this much: we'll see what Madou's up to, later. ;)
Headgamer 15th Nov 2016, 6:33 AM edit delete reply
Headgamer
Everyone either loves Madou, or just loves to hate him. One or the other. XD

Ahahaha KAM XD that would be such a jerk move on Madou's part, but darn if that didn't make me laugh XDD

I slept like a log over the weekend to make up for this, I think XD ehehe Bradley plushie <3 (makes me feel so safe lol <3)

Well, IS Cain a good little daifu? ;D
ehehe jk
...maybe
SableDreamer 9th Nov 2016, 12:08 AM edit delete reply
I have to say that I absolutely adore this comic! It's one of my all time favorites! I originally found it on Tapastic, but followed the link here (and then signed up on ComicFury just to post here). And just spent the last week binge reading Serpamia Flare in my spare time. >.>; It's safe to say that I fell in love!

Then I realized that I'd gotten caught up. XD This strip is awesome! I'm super excited to see what happens next, especially since Cain and Kylie are my favorite characters. ^_^

This is an amazing comic! Thank you so much for sharing it!

P.S. Sorry about the longish comment... Now that I'm caught up, my future ones probably won't be so vague and long. XP

Hi SableDreamer!!! ;3;*

I'm very happy you're fond of Cain and Kylie, given they are the main characters XD *cuddle* <33 thank you so much! I hope you'll continue to enjoy the story as it trundles along >3<*)/

And please NEVAR apologise for long comments XDD <333 I'm pretty sure other webcomic artists will agree this is absolutely a positive thing <33

So...let us go, and we'll leave town? :)
Get some sleep, Rufi!!
rufiangel 21st Nov 2016, 6:18 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Kylie's probably thinking that, yep XD

It sort of comes down to what Bradley believes are the consequences of either action (keep Cain in detention or free him)... ;)

I slept 12 hours on Friday night, it was glorious <3 thank you! XD

Get some rest, my friend. With all the hard work you put into this outstanding comic, you deserve it.

<333 thank you Outlaw! ;3;* That is so kind of you to say awwfufufuf

I slept like a log on Friday night, I'm recharged on sleep again ehehe <3 just one more deadline this week and I'll have more sleep on my plate! o/

And I'm pleased the reveal was interesting for readers <3 (and not too random XD)

Am I naive, or am I sensing a possibility he's not gonna totally sell her out?
Lukkai 10th Nov 2016, 10:06 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
Considering he knows her connection with Seia, that might actually act as a deterrent to sell her and Cain out. Even leaving any other possible reasons out of the equation.
rufiangel 21st Nov 2016, 6:21 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Hehehe, Lukkai... wanna guess what Bradley's World Guild level is? XD
Lukkai 28th Nov 2016, 11:45 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
I'm not daring an exact guess, but I'm quite confident to go with "not low". ;)
rufiangel 21st Nov 2016, 6:20 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
You're not naiive Proxy! Never~~ X3

But of course, Bradley's intentions remain to be seen, so I guess it could go either way at this point >3<
Kat 10th Nov 2016, 9:22 AM edit delete reply
Ooo, things just got interesing! Dun dun DUN--
(well, more interesting than usual, I mean)
Augh so much angst for Cain though, I hope this does not turn into a disaster :S

Oof, staying up till 2... wow (I hope you slept a lot after that!)
(I actually do that all the time, but only when I'm doing things that don't have deadlines, ironically :p)

Delicious Angst <3 ;D Cain's breakfast cereal~
(not really but XD)

I slept a lot over the weekend to make up for it, over a week later XD;;; but it still made up for it! <3

(I totally get what you mean about procrastinating sleep when all you're doing it derping lol :'D)
