Happy Thursday! :) Thanks for your patience with today's slightly late update. Actually, just thanks for your patience and kindness with me in general. -v-a;;

With any luck this weekend I'll be able to catch up on comments and next week's updates won't be delayed. Still working through this weird motivationless fog but I'll get through it! Thank you everyone for being so encouraging. ;v;* <3

Thanks everyone for reading! Hope to see y'all on Monday.

Nemi's face in the first panel...so priceless. XD

Archer can fly!? Very fortunate it looks like he can. Though Lyn seems to be in need of some medical attention.

And you're welcome, rufi! We all go through those times I believe where everything feels like what you describe. Stay positive!

She was really surprised XD

And yep, Archer can indeed fly in short bursts of time :D

Lyn got a cleric stat, so no worries there! ;)

As for those times, I appreciate your kind words. Thanks MST3K! You're right that we just gotta stay positive during these moments. It's a never-ending downward-spiral otherwise!

Yayyy, update =)

...you made it, Rufi!!! <3

...and thank you Rufi for sharing this great story and community with us... *hugs* image

Yayyy, Nemi is all right!!! <3 <3 <3

Oh, Lyn is also a lethian??? :o

I hope Cain or combat healer guy can heal Lyn soon...

Thank *you* for making up the community! :D

Nemi was always gonna be fine, I think I just didn't express it well enough in the last panel last page XD oh well. No worries, she's a slippery folk.

And I can see why you thought Lyn might be a Lethian, though that wasn't my intention at all XD sorry for the confusion, LOL!

Cain healed Lyn right up, no problem there. ;)

It appears that Briar is learning, with his concern for Archer.

It looks like Kylie put up a barrier up, and that'll help Lyn, but won't that interfere with others' actions?

Nice to see you're working your way through it, rufiangel! :D

Briar is certainly wondering if his scratch really warrants that much more priority over Archer's gaping wound :'D it's good that he's wondering at all, right? >.>

Kylie's pretty much put a stop to everyone else's actions (besides Sir Bradley and Balzac) right now - they gotta hit that 'reset' button best they can, since the Behemoth was already regenerating much of the damage -v-a *sigh* round two, here we go...?

Oh, and thank you very much! :D I'm happy to be able to keep at this!

I don't know how many close calls I can take, rufi :,D It's surprising to see that Archer can make his wings grow (albeit temporarily), is that a thing other Saeren could do? I didn't think there was anything magical involved with the wings.

*exhales* The blood hurts my soul... somebody heal everyone, stat! Briar's concern is very nice to see, though <3 Is it Sir Bradley in that last panel? I hope he can manage... :,D

"Adult Saera, however, can - with magic - cause the wings to burst out to full size and fly for a short period of time"
is what it says in the description of Saera on the "Races" page :)

Oooh, so it does! Thanks, Kat!

Though, I feel that makes it all the sadder that they HAVE to make it grow with magic instead of naturally being able to have them due to the wing clipping.
Kattapuss 4th Dec 2017, 9:03 AM edit delete reply
Kattapuss
Yes, absolutely :C

The entire situation of their race is pretty sad, tbh... :C

This chapter has been all about the close calls, I do apologise XDD

'The blood hurts my soul' sounds like a BiM OST track

And you were right about it being Sir Bradley, yeppers! He *does* have the ability to tank, it's just kind of super risky :'D it's okay though, Balzac's on it!

(Also, thanks Kat for pointing out that obscure Races page reference, I'm so pleased you noticed it! XD)

Winged him.

Gee, Kam, you seem to be more flighty than usual here! Don't let the pun haters get to you... your wit must be free to SOAR!!!!!

And here I am, contemplating whether the correct past-tense form of 'winged' would be 'wung' :P

Aww! Archer getting so much screen time doing awesome things like singing and flying and rescuing people! I love this!

Now let me go get him some bandaids. *Glances around at everyone else.* Uh... I'll just go get a couple boxes. x_x

rufiangel
Alicia! <33 I'm so happy you're happy about Archer getting some screen-time lovin'! XD <3 Thank you so much for letting me use him, fuehehehe <33

And uh, make that more than a couple of boxes XDDD

I'm not gonna say anything about motivation, Rufi... Something about glass houses and bricks?...

I am, however glad to see you picking up steam again! Rock on, girl!
rufiangel 7th Dec 2017, 5:12 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XD No worries DLK, you can say all you like! I mean, maybe I need a brick in a glasshouse, yanno.

And thank you very much for your support, you are really too kind! ;v;*

Ohhh, those wings <3
Nooo, Lyn!
It would be so evil if Lyn died now... D:

rufiangel
Hmm, you're giving me ideas... ;D

No, no you're not, don't worry XD

I'm happy you liked the wings! :D It's a one-time only limited shot, after all XD <3

This is going south so quick D: Wonder what they could do to get the upper hand? Anyone have a spell to cast to maybe slow the beast down?
rufiangel 7th Dec 2017, 5:13 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
The characters on site right now don't have any spells to slow down the Behemoth, but they'll do what they can... we'll see about how they go about trying to get that upper hand, hehehe ;)

Inner Archer: NO TOUCHY x'D
His wings are so pretty though *-*

Happy that Archer's being all heroic and doin' cool stuff~
(not so happy that he's hurt though. Or Lyn for that matter :S)

(Kylie, please don't smack your brother in the face with a wall of ice)

((Eeeeee))
rufiangel 7th Dec 2017, 5:15 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XD lolol, Inner Archer definitely feels that way when it's someone he doesn't know, or like :'D (I'm happy you like his purdy wings, Alicia came up with the shades of his wings so it's all down to her! X3)

Archer gets his moments to shine, hehe ;D

(As for Kylie not smacking her brother in the face with ice... no promises lololol)

((*brings oxygen tanks just in case*))

That's a handy ability to have, even if it's on a cooldown.
rufiangel 7th Dec 2017, 5:16 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
The cooldown lasts for... the rest of the day! XD;; It's something like a daily. ;D But you're right, it's still a handy thing to be able to bust out when you really, really need it! XP
