Happy Thursday, folks! :)

And that brings this brief flashback to an end. I hope these couple of pages have given a little more insight onto why Lyn is bound the way he is. Though as to why Lyn even took those vows in the first place... well, that's a story for another time, I think. ;D

This week I got a super lovely fanart of Cain from Kat!



<333 I lovex3 her interpretation of Cain's hair! :D Thank you so much Kat <333 (Please check out her fanart tumblr here! :D)

The next update falls on a public holiday during the Lunar New Year (which starts tomorrow!) - I'll be updating on that day with the chapter's cover page~

Happy Chinese New Year! :)

Oh, Lyn is smiling.... <3

Well, there Briar seems not to be so ... spoiled and bratty...

@alt text: no? not at all? ;) =P

He's still a brat, he's just a slightly more relatable brat. ;)

Since that was quite a while ago I thought maybe he developed more brattyness later...

Everyone assumed the worst of Briar, so this flashback hopefully rectifies some of that. :)

Seems the kid we all saw as a bit of a brat maybe just needed someone his age to hang around with...and kick the butt of anyone who crosses him.

He mostly needed the chance to actually be a kid, I guess. That's a problem kids of people in high places often face.

One-sided conversations do get a little bit dull after a while, but Briar still appreciates the company I think XD

Hair is really hard to get right. Good work, Kat.

A super strong attack, huh? Why do I suddenly think of Lyn punching something, then we switch to a view from afar with a mushroom cloud à la Lina just having fired a Dragonslave (or Giga Slave even).
Kat 28th Jan 2017, 11:56 AM edit delete reply
Thank you! Hair is fun :)

XDD ahaha that would certainly be of an epic level!

Dragonslave, hmm... we'll seeeee XD

Awww...at least Lyn seems to have been in good hands...albeit a little twisted, but well-intentioned?

Yarrr it hasn't been easy for Lyn, so I daresay he probably felt pretty lucky to get Briar >3<)o

Ok, Lyn is cool, for Reals...

Briar, I still think he needs a time out (or 50), but at least he's not totally self absorbed, only just mostly self absorbed...

<3 Dat bishie Cain fanart <3 Lovely work, Kat~

Rufi I swear, you aren't even being subtle with Lyn's fate XDDD In other news, Briar's shirt looks like I could touch it and I'd be sucked into Briar Narnia.
Kat 28th Jan 2017, 11:57 AM edit delete reply
Thanku ^//^ Lol I wasn't trying to make him bishie x'D

Well he looks rather handsome nonetheless <3

Gosh, Briar Narnia makes me think of a world where it's Narnia, but everyone has Briar's face and it's terrifying XDDD

Oh my I haven't realised Lyn is that young. I thought he was just a shortie. And I thought I shipped him with Archer for a little while there... oops, my bad xD (scratches that off list... gotta find a new one... sigh xD)

On more serious note though... I wonder what this vow is about. I hope not "I need to murder Kylie for murdering the whole village".

rufiangel 1st Feb 2017, 4:47 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
LOL Jarvi-nii XDDD sorry about that! I thought you knew :'D

To be fair, it takes some sleuthing to get Lyn's age. On this page Kylie says that he has to be at least 7+ years younger than her, meaning he's 14 or younger - meaning Kylie is 14+7=21 years old at present. When Isaac does the Bloodfinding, he says that her brother is 8 years younger than her, which means Lyn is 21-8=13 years old. :)

(Actually, because I put those pages there I thought most readers knew that Kylie's brother was a young teen, but for some reason I still got a lot of "Madou/Abel is Kylie's brother" theories after those pages... XD;;; these were hints in passing so it wasn't very obvious!)

About that vow - wow, wouldn't THAT be super dramatic :D <3 Oh wait, wrong face, right? D: boooo drama. I don't want no drama in this, right? Heh. Heh. Heh. ;D
Jarvi 1st Feb 2017, 8:35 PM edit delete reply
Jarvi
Hahah well for your hints to work I would have to be able to count to 21 and make cheese to remember such details so that's two impossible things you're expecting of me xD
Kat 28th Jan 2017, 11:59 AM edit delete reply
Aw, Lyn has a nice smile! :)
...either Lyn is younger than he looks, or Briar is older than he acts (and looks, for that matter). How old are they?

Tsk, I was going to make a CF account, but apparently someone else already has my name x'D I guess I need a new name x'D *brainstorms*

THE Kat, maybe? ;)
Kat 30th Jan 2017, 9:55 AM edit delete reply
Because there is only one official Kat in all the Internet? xDxD thanks for the suggestion though xD
rufiangel 1st Feb 2017, 4:51 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Time to declare yourself THE official Kat, it seems?! XDDD

Or you could always be Kat1029923738, that's like, super original right?

rufiangel
X3 Aw, it's nice people are warming up to Lyn's smile even when we can't see his eyes XD for all we know, he was rolling his eyes under that thing, LOL

(okay I kid he wasn't)

Lyn is 13, and Briar is... hmm. I don't have my timeline with me right now, sorry :'D but he should be around 11, if not younger than that. Briar is definitely small for his age though XD he needs to get more sun!

Eh! At this kind of age, kids tend to be all over the place when it comes to body size. And it can (and will) change amazingly quickly.
