Heya folks! Crazily I managed to finish this strip with time to spare, so I'm very glad @-@;; <3 We're introducing a new character here who has so far only been mentioned by name here and here~ You can refresh your mind on the task from Erimia's elder that Nemi mentions here on this page, though it may not be super pertinent for some time yet. ;P

That's it from me for now! I hope you enjoyed today's update, and I'll catch you guys next week with the next one. Thanks for reading SF, as always~ <3 Stay warm!

Let's hope it doesn't start buzzing like a phone off the hook. ;-)

Wow, just in time - do they know if someone else listened in with their guild emblem/pin?

I hope she will be ok, too...

...so who is this newcomer?

@R/N: great =) ...and thank you for the links =) <3
(so, that is Shera then... - ...or at least her feet...) =P

@alt text: indeed, too bad =S

They wouldn't know if someone else did if that person switched theirs on without saying anything, though they'd have to be tuned into the same frequency and within range.

And yep, that is indeed Shera's fancy feet~

Uh oh. They have high heels. Usually villainesses wear high heels in media. XP

Re: Alt text, I can picture this *click* echoing throughout the halls! XD

Er...Nemi, you maybe wanna consider telling them what the inquiry is about when the get the chance.

I think if they'd had more time just now, she would have gotten around to it eventually~ ... maybe :D

If she isn't able to later, I guess we'll have to rely on this annoying ol' author to unpack that properly soon XD

Oh, you KNOW she means business! Ace attorney~ (or maybe not, it was mentioned this was Shera's case, but maybe she's a judge. I'm gonna guess attorney for now, though.)

It took me a sec, but now I realized that Nemi's holding area has a top platform. They really do build things vertical around here.

Yeah, I was thinking judge up until now...

Let's just hope she doesn't have a whip on her XD

And I'm glad you can parse how the room layout looks like! I was actually going to have a different angle in the initial rough, from Nemi's POV looking up at the platform to make it more clear. But I felt that seeing an indistinct shadowy figure was less interesting than being able to be looking down at Nemi from their POV and see their fancy heels, lol. I hoped that the verticality would be easier to parse given the previous layouts in Caelune that were actually shown, so it's good to know it sort of works. I should think about how to make it clearer going forward though~
