Happy Friday, folks! :)

This is one of those pages that I'm pretty sure will raise more questions than answers, yet again. XD; My hope is that, eventually, all these 'incomprehensible actions' (thanks, Ruthford) will make crystal clear sense when the relevant times come. In the meantime, though, I think I've dropped enough hints for people to piece together 'the truth', and why Seia is behaving the way he is.

I hope you guys enjoy today's update! I'm taking Monday (the 26th) off and I'm going to be back with an update on Thursday, so I'll see you then. Take care! :) And if you missed the previous A/N, make sure you pop back and take a look!

Didn't think of that. o_o

But he's probably right....

I'm glad it doesn't appear as a leap of logic; I considered having Seia explain exactly why he thought so, but then I thought I'd take a gamble and bet that readers would be able to infer why, for the most part. We'll go over it again in more detail later, but thanks for reassuring me that it's not immediately required! :D

Careful, with statements like that you could cause rifts in the time-space continuum from the sheer size of the plot hole! :'D

Zion is not only beautiful, but his hair must smell exceptionally well. Just look at Seia smelling it at the first panel :D

The REAL reason he did not approve of Zion X Kylie finally comes out! :P

*I'm sure that's supposed to be a whisper, but why ruin a perfectly fabulous ship?*

@Jarvi: Light citrus spring soap, with a slight note of sunshine and toast. ;D

I can see how that would be nice to smell x)

Dunh, duhn, DUHN! Bad guys are in the guild!? It would indeed make sense, but now the question is who?

I'd guess someone that seems the most trustworthy given situations like this otherwise have people go after the person most shady.

rufiangel
This is all a guess on Seia's part, so he could be wrong... :P I don't know if I've introduced anyone deliberately shady-like from the Lethian Guild so far! XD; Could be someone not introduced yet... ;P

Urgh it's probably someone we know, but I can't think of who it could be and I sure hope it isn't any of the people I'm thinking of...
:S

This is probably how Seia feels, if his theory is correct; you just can't help but get paranoid about *everyone*! :'D
Crestlinger 24th Jun 2017, 7:39 AM edit delete reply
'Taking care of' *snort* yeah that's One way of putting it.
As to the mastermind either Madou has some 'key' competition, Abel's Really off the deep end and has Contacts, or an unknown party knows who and What the Lethian Guild is and has world-altering plans they, and only they, can stop. So by This interlude it is aqua-tic.

I still think that Seia's goal is to convert Ophelia, Crestlinger. I don't see why else he let her listen in on the conversation between Rutherford and Zion.

As he said, "Let's not insult each other's intelligence." It's a pretty safe bet that he knows about her enhanced hearing, so all in all, I think it's a fair statement, and I think Ophelia is already reconsidering her opinion of his actions...

Just my two cents... She could still backstab him, but I don't think Rufi will be that mean to us shippers!

@DLK: I'm pretty Seia did the backstabbery first, rather literally, DLK XD

rufiangel
@Cresty: Well, he is technically 'taking care of' a problem of sorts, so to speak. Perhaps. XD

And... let the Mastermind Olympics begin! ;D

I may be reading into it, but is Seia whispering something into Zion's ear? Hm what are you two doing back there???
rufiangel 3rd Jul 2017, 5:42 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
He does seem to be whispering something... either that, or like Jarvi-nii said, he's taking in the pleasant fragrance of Zion's shampoo XD
Scia 25th Jun 2017, 3:26 AM edit delete reply
I personally suspect whatever Seia's whispering to Zion probably has to do with the truth that Zion just learned.
rufiangel 3rd Jul 2017, 5:42 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
This is a valid suspicion, Scia! We'll see... ;D

... You know, if I didn't read that alt-text, I would have been all cool with Ruthford, but now I feel like maybe we should've let Zion accidentally zap him >__> (His request for a meeting at Camden certainly isn't helping my suspicions... I do wonder what he gets out of this if he knows waaaay more than he's letting on in all this... hm...)
rufiangel 3rd Jul 2017, 5:42 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Poor Ruthford, he's just trying to be all Stern Guildmaster and all he gets is suspicion and a desire for him to be zapped by lightning XD poor man!

That said, he certainly may know quite a bit more than his brief appearance here would allow him to reveal ;D

...Ohh... Baddies in the guild itself! Not unexpected, I s'pose... D:

Fufufu, I'm glad that it didn't come across as unexpected~! ;D
