Happy Thursday everyone! :D I hope you've been having a good week so far.

And yep here it is, a 5-page update from yours truly in celebration of a scene that has been in the making since over a decade ago. I hope you enjoy it. -v-*)/

Kylie first found out she had a brother way back in chapter one and seemed fairly pleased about it until she discovered some things about her mother, which led to her fearing how her brother might react to her existence - so hopefully today's update will lift some hearts in that regard. (Cain is probably especially glad her brother didn't turn out like this XD) Much conspiracy theory and guesses at plot-twistery were produced from Kylie's journey to find her brother from readers, and I still wonder if perhaps the actual answer is too simple XD; but here it is, Kylie's first long-term quest given in Chapter One has finally met its completion near the end of Chapter Eight. Thank you readers for sticking through all those chapters (and years, for those of you who have been on this ride since near the beginning!) and being with me to see this particular quest though. ;v;*)7

This is a long update, so I'm going to leave it up for a good week or so and come back to wrap up the rest of this chapter with regular twice-a-week updates from the 26th of March onwards. Not long now until Chapter 8 is finished, kindly hang in there with me >3<*)/

I'll leave you guys with a super old piece of oekaki art I did in anticipation of this moment in the story waaay back in... *checks the date*... wow, 2005, August 28th. @_@ Obviously much has changed (their heights and ages, for one XD) but yep, past!Rufi, present!Rufi has finally actually drawn this. It only took 13 years~ XD

Whew. And I'm only halfway there. -v-)7

Thanks everyone for reading, always. <3 Have a great rest of the week!

Aww, yeah! Way to go, Lyn! (*insert terrible pun about breaking the ice*) Way to go, Kylie, too, finally making it here! I can't wait to see how they get along...

Congrats on the story milestone, Rufi! Nice work!

Aaaawwwwwwwww... ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ❤

Adorable Nemi is adorable =) ♡ ♡ ♡ ❤

*lol* Cain keeping Nemi from squeeing... =P

A very great scene - and no, I just got some dust in them... image image

Great page - worth the wait =) 👍

...and thank you, Rufi for the great and long story you are sharing with us =D <3 ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ❤

That past!Rufi's foreshadowing of the current page is adorable =D ♡ ❤

PS: typo in the link? I think you wanted to link to page 85 instead of page 86 you actually put into that last link?
Edit: I see you wanted to show that he is not a greedy mini male version of Kylie... - I stand corrected...

N-nope, looks nothing like a batmole *eyes Kylie critically* *is relieved she is busy*
Scia 16th Mar 2018, 4:59 AM edit delete reply
I was under the impression that Cain was preventing Nemi from blurting about the sibling relationship so that said siblings could talk about it, themselves. But either way, I guess he's keeping the surprise from being spoiled, and it's still cute. =3

@Scia: You are correct XD; though I guess the other interpretation could work, too!

<3 I enjoy them so ;v;*

In response to something you mentioned on Discord that I just remembered - we are indeed around the halfway mark of the whole story, though I am kind of ballparking it because there are a couple of changes I've made that could potentially make it longer. (Not too much longer, though~)

All the events in Chapter 7 and 8 were originally one chapter, but it was only when I started doing the thumbnails that I realised how incredibly long it got when I began to unpack it @_@ so it became 2 chapters. Because of this I don't know anymore if my original chapter plans will actually be containable within the originally allotted space XD so we'll see!

But yes, halfway there. -v-)7

*screams and fist pumps the air* In the name of all that is wonderful and pure in the world, YUSSSSSS!!! THANK YOU RUFI!!! <3

I still do wanna know the reason Lyn ended up here of all places, under Briar, but I'm willing to wait just so Kylie and Lyn can have this wonderful moment together, with no blood sacrifices in sight <3

rufiangel
Now now, I am far too squishy at heart to do anything brutal I promise XD (though I have a youth pastor who reads SF at church asking me when I'm going to kill Lyn off for those max drama-tragedy points XD LOL)

Lyn and Kylie do have a lot to catch up on, but yes I hope it's at least shown that the most important thing has been established for now ^_^ <3

*squish-hugs muffin* Thank you so much for reading m'dear ;v;* <333

WOW this has got to be a....what, TRIPLE page update? Great work! And I think the long flow with empty space at the bottom has a beautiful impact~~~ So satisfying for these two to finally meet! Aww and Lyn's blush face <3

To reply to your other page comment, I don't think you have same face problem/is the reason for you making them look related, they really do look related and their own at the same time. <3

I thought this scene in particular was better read in one go, rather than spread across multiple weeks, so I went for the one update instead of five. XD; Glad I made the right choice! :D

I-I'm ok... Or maybe not, because AAAAHHHH so many feels

This was beautifully paced and beautifully drawn, and awww Lyn's getting so flustered and I kind of just want to hug him xD I kind of love him already xD
I can definitely see the family resemblance between the two~ <3 I have this slight sense that Lyn might not join their party, which would be really sad, but in any case this page was amazing and it's ok that you don't update until next week because I think we'll all be sitting in the Feels for a while still...
