Happy Friday, folks! :) I hope you're all staying cosy despite the cooling weather. (It's still super hot in HK though lol)

I apologise in advance if this particular update makes you want to punch the guards in the face XD (FYI, the guard with the piercings and star on his face is called Starsky :P)

Thanks so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed today's update - see y'all next week <3

Aw, I feel so bad for Michael! And Lyn continues to be a cinnamon bun.

...The tower makes me think of a scratching post and I don't know why. I mean, besides the obvious.

I'm glad you find Lyn as such XD <3 It's always a joy to finally be able to draw him!

And re:scratching post, hehehehehehe

Stealing all from Mike??? :o

*hugs Rufi* <3

I've never gotten anything that got confiscated by airport security back :') Like the pair of scissors I forgot was in my pencil case, or bottles of water I didn't finish beforehand...

All in all, I guess, it could have gone worse! Mikey gets to keep his necklace, and Kylie seems to have enough clout to be able to get their stuff back.

In Caelune, and platform vidya games, guard rails aren't a thing! LOL

Always good to count your blessings~ :3

I did make note to put some guard rails on some select paths in Caelune, since I'm thinking they'll occasionally have non-Kijin around, though not often~ but not many paths, lol

I picture Michael getting all new shiny stuff later on given anytime someone has lost something they usually got something better afterwards. Kylie's sword, Cain's jacket, etc...

It does seem to be a recurring event in SF, now that you mention it XD

"You could craft something dangerous" they say, and then proceed to list incredibly mundane materials you could get anywhere, including freakin' cloth. I'm amazed they didn't confiscate his belt, too.

He certainly is lucky he got to keep that, at least. I mean this is the least of his worries but I promise that outfit looks a lot less nice when the waist isn't cinched XD

From a security standpoint, I get it, crafting people like Sealsmiths can be potentially dangerous with even the simplest materials...

... but also... *withholds urge to punch him in the nose*

(Hope weather becomes pleasant for you soon! Weather's a mess here with random rain and blazing heat XD)

It does suck to have your very livelihood be a problem in cases like this :')

(I certainly hope the weather there has been less crazy lately ;3;)

The urge to punch Starsky actually isn't as strong this page as it was last page. There are legitimate reasons for taking what he did, and he didn't take anything on grounds of "Because I'm a punk and I can".

Other side of the coin though... Three cheers for Michael for his behavior here. I kinda want to buy him a beer!

Michael is certainly doing his utmost to be on his best behaviour. I don't think he'd turn down that offer to treat him to a beer though, he certainly could use it!

Well, now that that mild annoyance is over with, I really can't wait to see how this whole situation goes.

XD I'm glad you're looking forward to it - this is going to be a kind of different chapter from the others in some ways. You'll see~

So, is there a guard named Hutch?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starsky_%26_Hutch

Why would a race of arboreals have any need of guard rails?
Also, it looks like the Fel have a fairly high tech-base, if elevators have anything to show for it. Is this a case where different races have different abilities (magic vs tech vs something else), or do all the "advantages" even out overall?

I did actually want to name the blue-haired one Hutch for funsies XD I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought of that though!

Fel and Nines do have their respective strengths that balance out when it comes to having an edge in the battlefield; it'd be fun to go into it later on :3

Well, Mike could keep his necklace. I was about to loose my sh*t if that wouldn't happen. So, we're cool, for now.... that sad face Mike did was sad, but is all for Nemi so....we're cool, for now.

He certainly was lucky to be able to keep it :') it'd make things very complicated if he couldn't!

And it has it's own Tower Records. ;-)

And if that's too old and/or too American a reference, Tower Records was a music store franchise that utilized a circular tower as a design motif.

*gives Mike a head-pat*
Hmm I sure hope nobody in that city is afraid of heights!

rufiangel
I just thought that if someone in Caelune *did* have a fear of heights, they'd probably be all tough and pretend they didn't, because they wouldn't want to be judged... but they'd also rarely look down XD

Oh good Lord, their city is one giant cat tree isn't it?
