Happy Thursday! :)

This flashback specifically pertains to this page and this page, if you need a quick refresher course!

Thanks for reading, as always :D I'll be back with a Friday Flare tomorrow, so please keep an eye out for that~ X3

I answered two short questions today, one is mostly an in-joke (*snicker*) and the other is a legit question, it's just that if you ask Madou anything he's not always going to give a legit answer XD;;;

Tch. Ain't no time for flashbacks and inner monologues here, Kylie!

Time to fight!

We'll have plenty of time for flashbacks and inner monologues later, right? ... Right? ;D

But yes, time to do some noggin' conkin' XD

Clearly Kylie missed seeing the sign reading "No Flashbacks". ;-)

I guess I sort of underestimate what Sir Bradley was able to do...

Don't worry Azure-rin, I'm sure most people don't really know what's going on in that man's head! ^_^;;;;

Lukkai
We're too busy wondering about what's going on on his head anyway.

Take this guy out, THEN take a moment to think about the current state of affairs! :)

One thing at a time, eh? ;) But what if Kylie's a magnificent multi-tasker?

So.... they said no magic right? So how dose being a Lethian knight help her here?
Gilrandir 10th Feb 2017, 12:03 AM edit delete reply
They only said "no magic effects that go outside the dueling area". Localized effects would seem to be fine.

I agree... though it's probably best that Kylie not use her Lethiace either, since 1. She's still trying to be a ninja Lethian and 2. While I believe she has full control now, an audience of peepsicles is probably what they're trying to avoid.
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 4:40 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Cici: You're right in your thinking - Kylie's trying to keep it on the down low. We'll see soon enough how well she manages that. XD;;;
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 4:39 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Headgamer: Arguably, a Lethiace is not normally referred to as 'magic', but I digress. XD;

As the others have mentioned already, the rule set is on no magic with area effects outside of the set boundary. If magic wasn't allowed at all, some classes would be severely disadvantaged! XD;;;

Yes! My hope in his line of thinking is proving true :)

But the fact he said "both sides"...I'm trying hard to figure out the connection and how the parties intermix, but I feel like I'm still missing too much of the puzzle. Here's to hoping you give us more pieces :)
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 4:45 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ahhh thankyew Proxy for not killing me for being vague XD <33 ;v;*

By 'both sides', there's a nuance there that I guess might be a little hard to pick up on. Hopefully I'll be able to elaborate more on it later ;D

Gilrandir 10th Feb 2017, 12:07 AM edit delete reply
Considering what we saw of Seia's fight against the green mage, this seems to me to be high praise for Sir Bradley, indeed. ^_^

Now it makes me want to see him in a fight -- although that same quality makes it much less likely he will actually get into a fight unless the situation is very dire. Good quality to have in a Defender, though. ^_^
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 4:47 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Aw Gil, that's much love for Seia! XD <3

Well, how dire could it possibly get in this current situation, eh? ;)

Heh. Heh. Heh.
Gilrandir 13th Feb 2017, 5:14 PM edit delete reply
Well, it's kind of implied that if things get that dire, we are no longer in the current situation. ^_^

It would be an entirely different situation that just happened to be situated in the same location.

If you can hold your own in battle while having a flashback, you're probably off to a decent start.
Lukkai 10th Feb 2017, 1:31 PM edit delete reply
Lukkai
Yeah, blocking his strike even though she's not really mentally present at the moment is something that should give him cause to worry.

Unless of course this was just to get her attention, not a serious attack.
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 4:57 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Lukkai: To be fair, it was a 'HEY PAY ATTENSHUN TO MEEEE' strike XD
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 4:56 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@JC: Agreed, really XD we gotta start off nice and easy before ramping up, right? ;)

Pffft, that's a good advice xD

It can be a little bit galling to get good advice from this dude, admittedly XD

heh don't space out in a fight. amusing. the ones that do generally are not afraid or worried. he should be though.

ABsolutely, Centy! XDD I love how you put it, nehehehe ;D <3

I like that Misuta just... goes running up to Kylie. Like he's not even charging or trying to do some kind of mega jab or wallop, he's just... running with a cockroach splatter high in the air. And he's so happy, too XDDD
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 4:59 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
'cockroach splatter' made me laugh XDDD

He's really excited, this whole tournament thing is AIITE! wooooo

Hahaha, I love how the flashback gets interrupted, well done!
This small fry shouldn't take long... ;)

Kylie is probably picking a bit of a busy time to be reminiscing XD

Small fry indeed, though his hair would object XD

You know, I always wanted to see Quai Chang Cain (the old Kung Fu TV series with David Caradine) get clocked while he was in the middle of one of his flashbacks...

Quai Chang Cain, NOT Kylie!!!!
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 5:00 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
I have to look that up! XD;;

And doncha worry DLK, Kylie's not getting clocked here! ;) Not yet...?

Misuta Pomp stops to pose and show off.

"You're dang right it is! It really shows my"*KLONK*

Announcer: "And the winner by K.O.: Knight K!"

@Lukkai: I can't tell if your prediction is better or worse than the actual outcome XDDD
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 5:02 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Roux: LOL XD

The word 'majestic' always makes me think of eagles...

And now I am imagining a majestic eagle perching on his hair :'D
Lukkai 14th Feb 2017, 1:15 PM edit delete reply
Lukkai
There's probably enough room and nesting material there for the eagle to move in permanently.

I approve of Madou's answer!

Lolol Lukkai, you sure are lenient around that crazy hooded guy XD <3

In this case simply because he's right! ;)

It's rude to interrupt someone else's panel, baguette-man.
Hrm, well, of all the people in the party to be stuck in this sort of situation, Kylie is probably the best-- she's definitely the most level-headed of them all, and the best at keeping her cool. She can handle it.
rufiangel 13th Feb 2017, 5:04 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Baguette-man has issues breaking into other people's panels, his hair alone defies panel borders quite often :'D

And that is very high praise and love for Kylie <333 hehehe X3
Gilrandir 13th Feb 2017, 5:11 PM edit delete reply
You're suggesting, @rufiangel, that he has boundary issues? ^_^
Robert 12th Feb 2017, 4:46 AM edit delete reply
Then Kylie had this brilliant idea to taunt her foe... "Hey, just because your parents couldn't afford bread growing up, doesn't mean you need to grow it on your head!"
Lukkai 12th Feb 2017, 12:01 PM edit delete reply
Lukkai
You mean: "...because they didn't have the dough for bread..."



*pays the pun jar*

rufiangel
@Lukkai: Wow, that's worth a LOT of Goldras, good sir. XD; *rattles the jar*

You guys are so mean, just because Misuta Pomp isn't necessarily well-bread...

Kylie has to learn one lesson about scene structure: You don't go into a mind trip in the middle of one.

She might accidentally really trip over herself otherwise, eh? ;)

Will you be willing to clean up the thing afterwards, good sir? XD
