Happy Monday, folks!

Alright, I've updated the page so now you should see what was missing before, which in retrospect was kind of important but I just didn't have it on me at the time. XD; It should make it quite clear how Sir Bradley knew who Kylie was. The comments on this particular page guessed at this, and also doubted this XD Don't worry, there's a reason for everything. ^_^

That's it from me for now. Thanks for reading!

Hey guys, sorry to do this again but the next update will go up late on Friday - I really tried, but I just cannot get this one done on time. :'D

Here's a WIP shot:

You'll probably see why this page is costing me more time and effort than usually once it's up. OTL Thanks for your patience, and apologies for the lateness!

Out of one frying pan and into another one (later on) for Briar. XP

But Kylie is in her bro's hands now. Will there be an actual reunion now?

Briar certainly has a lot to answer for XD but yes, there will be time for that later...

We'll see about Kylie and Lyn~ :3

So, what will the backlash be???

@ Author notes: awww... *hugs and comforts Rufi*

Re: Backlash - considering the extreme circumstances, I wonder if any backlash would be on the lenient side. Granted, I guess it depends on whether his oath is more of the mundane or the mystical variety.

There are some major actions taken in this chapter that don't have immediate consequences, but... We'll see in time XD;

Yes, what this comic is missing is the accompanying Van Halen song. ;-)

Wait, is the defender an earth-bender?? did he learn that from toph??
rufiangel 14th Sep 2017, 7:06 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
I guess it's kinda like that when you can cast your lethiace without a weapon! XD;
wido 15th Sep 2017, 1:16 AM edit delete reply
wait....wait!!!! I *JUST* realised the defender is a lethian!!!! and, also, I think is even the first time we see an earth lethiace (I remember ice and fire). Is there an "air" lethiace too?
rufiangel 19th Sep 2017, 10:58 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
I can confirm that 'wind' is one of the lethiaces, yep. :)

We know where there is a healer, let's hope Lyn does too!
rufiangel 14th Sep 2017, 7:08 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Okay, Lyn's abilities to perceive what's around him are pretty good but sensing where healers are on the map may be a little beyond him XDD he can at least get her down safely though, right...?
Scia 12th Sep 2017, 2:37 AM edit delete reply
I like Archer's reaction to what the Defender did. XD Awfully cute, IMO.
Scia 12th Sep 2017, 2:41 AM edit delete reply
Also, regarding that talk, I personally think Briar has pretty well learned his lesson already. I'm curious to see how daddy responds, though.

Thanks Scia, I had fun drawing Archer's reaction XD

I guess holding someone in your arms is preeetty darn close! XD;; Though of course, if you don't have all the pieces of the puzzle with you... you just stay puzzled, I suppose :'D

CiciEnixa
And here I was thinking he and Seia just happened to have close business together. First Earth Lethian and he's a 10.0 in the Richter scale, Cici approves XD

Chibi Gareth is... so chill about this XDDD

AND KYLIE AND LYN ARE CLOSER THAN THEY'LL EVER BE, RECOGNIZE HER, LYN!!!
Kattapuss 13th Sep 2017, 12:37 PM edit delete reply
Kattapuss
If you look up "Gareth" in the dictionary, the definition you will get is "chill" xDD (and also "fantastic hair", of course xD)

I might be mistaken, but... I don't think Lyn has ever seen Kylie, so he wouldn't be able to recognize her. Also right now I think he can't see at all x'D
CiciEnixa 13th Sep 2017, 12:42 PM edit delete reply
CiciEnixa
I'm also sure he's never seen her before... or at all. I just kinda want him to sniff her and think "oh, she smells like dead mom, maybe she is my long lost sister".

... I realize how wrong that sounds now that I've written it but... I'm also sort of committed now XD
Kattapuss 13th Sep 2017, 12:44 PM edit delete reply
Kattapuss
HAHAHAH that did sound kind of... weird xDD but I get your point xD
yeah I'm hoping one of the two will make the connection SOON but... I am assuming a few more complications will have to come first :S

Every single comment that came out of your initial comment, Cici, is amazing and I have nothing more to add XDDD
Kattapuss 13th Sep 2017, 12:33 PM edit delete reply
Kattapuss
ARCHER'S FACE XDDDD

Question though. Is Gareth's comment of "he broke it" referring to Lyn about to break his vow, or to the Defender breaking the top box? x'D

Briar you're in troubleeee~

I will stop yelling about Lyn and Kylie because I have been already for the past few pages. Just imagine a low and continuous "Eeeeeeeeeeeeee" in the background for as long as scene is going to take xD

EDIT: Wait. I had to do a double-take here. Is the Defender a mage... or is he a Lethian? :O
mjkj 13th Sep 2017, 3:09 PM edit delete reply
mjkj
Hmmm, Kat, defender broke his vow not to use his lethiace anymore (that is what I get from the last pages...)
Kattapuss 13th Sep 2017, 10:19 PM edit delete reply
Kattapuss
That makes a lot of sense! I guess I just don't remember when that vow was mentioned in the first place...
mjkj 14th Sep 2017, 2:54 PM edit delete reply
mjkj
That vow was not mentioned yet - it was just mentioned he is about to break it last page - the rest is conjecture...
rufiangel 18th Sep 2017, 4:47 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Kat: A lot of things were breaking at the time, so XD

I'm very entertained by the 'EEEE' background noise by the way XDDD

XD Azure-rin <3 lolol

You know, I'm not sure if it's a reunion if they've never met before XD;;; or is it still called a reunion if they're family? Hmm.

Awwww... *hugs Rufi*

Seems like it will be a hard page with the big puppy...

Thank you for keeping us informed...

I second hugging Rufi. And saying thank you for keeping us informed!

Based on the WIP, it looks like Sir Bradley is going to be facing the "big puppy" (lol) with his son in his arm. I can see that being challenging for a variety of reasons. (both for Rufi to draw and for the Defender to battle, tho mainly challenging for the Defender ^^; )
rufiangel 18th Sep 2017, 4:55 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Thanks for being so kind about the delays in updates ;3;* I'll do my best to keep communicating clearly when the next update will be up!

As for why the following page in particular was challenging, it's fair to blame Bradley and the Black Behemoth in equal amounts. ;;; They are both incredible pains to flat! XD;;;

WHERE IS THE SHARD THING DAMMIT??? SOMEONE TAKE IT OUT! SEE THAT IT'S YOUR BROTHER!!

Screaming and jumping around aside, doesn't Archer or Briar have it? Just remember Briar telling Archer to put it away since it was making Lyn all weird.

You recall very correctly the last time the blood crystal was seen - Archer is currently in possession of it! :)

Alicia~! XD I'm so glad you designed Archer and let me use him so extravagantly ahahaha <3 X3 I hope to do his character some justice within the screentime he has <33 (including giving him ridiculous expressions time to time XD)
