LOL Even when his own kid covers for Archer, Bradley knows it's all a lie.

Poor Archer's gonna hear it later. XP

Actually, I'm not sure Briar's lying at all. Leaving out details, yes, but so far as we know, this appears to all be accurate. Maybe not the "check on something" part - hard to say.

But between everything else definitely being accurate, and Archer going to help the party, I think there's a good chance Bradley would be understanding. Maybe even let Archer off the hook, even if it means he comes down harder on Briar.

@Scia: Pretty much XD sometimes it just comes out as a slightly warped truth?

I like to think Sir Bradley is a reasonable man. When his kid is involved, though...

Archer's definitely gonna hear it later XD

Though to be fair, with Briar saying what he did, the blow will be considerably softened :)

Archer and Briar both have upcoming "appointments"!
rufiangel 6th Oct 2017, 5:40 PM edit delete reply
Holidays and birthdays are penned in with lots of bright happy highlighters and cheerful stickers. This appointment is penned in black and looking as sad as a lost puppy XD;;;

Uhm... poor Archer...

You made it, Rufi *hugs* thank you for the update =)

rufiangel 6th Oct 2017, 5:40 PM edit delete reply
He kindasortamaybe brought it upon himself, but to be fair he didn't know it'd take that long XD

And thanks Mjkj for reading! I'm glad you enjoyed it :D

So, what dose Archer do that makes him needed for "events like these"?

Protection Magic?
Gilrandir 6th Oct 2017, 2:25 AM edit delete reply
He takes out thugs who work their way into a private box and threaten Briar (ideally). Of course, Lin also does that, but Sir Bradley is less concerned when both of them on on the job.

Archer also has that "BirdSong" thing going on. Would've been pretty useful here.
rufiangel 6th Oct 2017, 5:41 PM edit delete reply
Hehe. Archer's a caretaker moreso than anything else (that's why Lyn's the bodyguard here) but yes, as Gil and DLK have noted, he has his other uses too ;)

haha this family is filled with good guys that don't really know to act like good guys XD

And damn it Archer, just TAKE OUT THE DAMN CHARM ALREADY!!!
rufiangel 6th Oct 2017, 5:42 PM edit delete reply
I feel like I have a lot of characters in this comic that are good guys that had no idea how to act like good guys, now that you mention it XD

And he has clean forgotten about it at the moment, LOL XD don't worry, he'll remember later... maybe. ;D

Well, now that that's taken care of...Giant Beast?!?! Those stone walls can't possibly hold it for long!
rufiangel 6th Oct 2017, 5:42 PM edit delete reply
Oh yeah, that thing that's still rampaging about 3 feet away. Yep, it's still there. XD You're right to be concerned about that, sir!

That look of "You work for me idiot, not for my kid."
rufiangel 6th Oct 2017, 5:43 PM edit delete reply
LOL XD That's... pretty accurate, huh. XDDD

Beautifully done!

The interaction between them all is what makes this such a fun comic. I am sure the plot does something about that to... ;)
rufiangel 9th Oct 2017, 10:57 AM edit delete reply
Aww, thank you Haegan!! ;v;* I really am pleased you enjoy their interactions~~ >v<*)/ (and the plot stuff lolol)

I sometimes want to condense scenes down as far as I can so it's good to know that sometimes, pages like this one (and the one to come, actually) have their place for readers, too. -v-*)9

Rufia I wanted to ask what in the world are you devouring in your profile pic...looks like chocolate
Robert 8th Oct 2017, 4:11 AM edit delete reply
I believe she's using an image from

So it's actually more of a meal, if I remember correctly.
rufiangel 9th Oct 2017, 10:59 AM edit delete reply
Hi Zane! Yep, as Robert mentioned, my current avatar is actually not a self-rep (lol) but Minarope from the amazing webcomic From Dust to Ruination - the exact page I snuck this avatar from is this page. >w<*)9

I asked CiciEnixa and she has confirmed that what Mina is eating in the avatar is in fact, roast beef strips. XD;

rufiangel 9th Oct 2017, 11:00 AM edit delete reply
