Happy Monday! :)

Hope you guys don't mind a little talky-talky!

See you on Wednesday! :)

He's too damn hard on himself!
...Ohh snap! Can't wait to hear the rest of that...;D

He is a *liiiiil* bit hard on himself, though you might see why after the next strip. XD;

Poor Kylie. She destroyed her home? I hope we will learn why and what and how it happened...

I do not believe she did it on purpose or without being provoked.

I hope she will find her peace and she can help Cain, too.

(@alt text: yup, it almost reads like my comments...)

The why/what/how of the situation is looong, so not all of it can be covered in the scope of this chapter. But the next chapter... ;)

XD Ahahaha, I like your dot-dot-dot-ey comments! :D

Now I have to wait for more... u.u

Lovin' SF each day more, miss Rufi!
rufiangel 28th Oct 2014, 11:27 PM edit delete reply
Yep, you called it, sir! :D

Ahahaha, I'm glad you keep reading! XD If I ever get to update this comic on a daily basis, that would be great...

Wait... does this mean we've been following the villains all along? 8-o ;-)

KAM 27th Oct 2014, 8:26 PM edit delete reply
Thinking it over they would make good villains.

Cain as the Bond-type villain petting a white cat.

Kylie chopping up cute little animals.

Nemi's already a thief.

And Mike would be the guy who rips the tags off of mattresses. ;-)
rufiangel 28th Oct 2014, 11:27 PM edit delete reply
That last line is absolute gold. XDDD Oh, Mike. What an impression you have made. XD;;;
Outlaw 27th Oct 2014, 8:59 PM edit delete reply
I had a feeling it was gonna be something like that...
I believe in Kylie though... I'm sure there were circumstances.
rufiangel 28th Oct 2014, 11:30 PM edit delete reply
Awww, Outlaw! Your comment is so sweet! XD <3

She'll explain just a little bit in the next strip, though not much - she doesn't remember much herself. Kylie still thinks she's accountable though.

Nothing wrong with some talky talky ;D
rufiangel 28th Oct 2014, 11:30 PM edit delete reply
Phew! :) Glad to hear that, 'cause there's still a few more pages of it!! XD;
Headgamer 28th Oct 2014, 1:14 AM edit delete reply
I'm going to have to re-read the part where she talks about that again... After work.
rufiangel 28th Oct 2014, 11:32 PM edit delete reply
If you want the start to the conversation she had with Cain and Nemi, it starts here~

Powers gone overboard?
rufiangel 28th Oct 2014, 11:33 PM edit delete reply
Arguably, a Lethian Knight is totally an overpowered class XD
Allzephyr 28th Oct 2014, 7:43 AM edit delete reply
...And so they recited sixteen Our Fathers and gave up. The end.
rufiangel 28th Oct 2014, 11:34 PM edit delete reply
Gosh, only sixteen? XD; They wouldn't give up that quickly!
Allzephyr 29th Oct 2014, 7:02 AM edit delete reply
I dunno. Whenever I hear penance assignments in books and such they always seem disproportionally small compared to the actual sin.
Can't say I'm an authority on Catholicism though so who knows.
rufiangel 29th Oct 2014, 5:32 PM edit delete reply
Neither am I, actually XD;;

Indeed, what would be an appropriate penance to certain sins?

This is a question I think Cain and Kylie are wondering about, too. :)
Dollipop 29th Oct 2014, 5:53 AM edit delete reply
Ahhh Cain no be happy and adorable >.<
Lukkai 29th Oct 2014, 6:32 AM edit delete reply
Well, can't have him being suddenly all cured and happy and mellow.

I mean, where's the story in that?

I've written some short stories or two myself, started with the frame of a few bigger ones. One thing I learned? Authors tend to be sadistic bastards when it comes to their characters. At least a bit. They have to be, or else most storylines would just be boring or not work at all.
Now you don't have to go all George R. R. Martin on them. But you should be able to submit them to some pain and drama.
Dollipop 29th Oct 2014, 10:20 AM edit delete reply
Yis I know there would be no plot with that, but Cain is bae
rufiangel 29th Oct 2014, 5:33 PM edit delete reply
Dollipop, with a reply like that, I feel like you're the bae XD <3 ahahahaha

Having never read Game of Thrones (ducks for cover from shaking fists), I didn't realise it had those kinds of situations in it at all. >_>a Hummm.

Overall, regarding characters going through torturous times - I think you're right! But also, there is a definite line that probably shouldn't be crossed too often, if at all. I do hope that readers will let me know at any point if I go too far to the point of gratuitous pain or discomfort. :)
Prayformercy 29th Oct 2014, 2:27 PM edit delete reply
this is why.. you dont play with matches.
rufiangel 29th Oct 2014, 5:45 PM edit delete reply
Aaaactually... in Kylie's case... it's more of the opposite end of the temperature-spectrum. ;)

But yes, Rince in a PBS says, Unless you're a Fire Lethian and you can take the heat, don't play with matches, or chuck a fireball at any old tree. Forest fires render hundreds of baby batmoles homeless every year. Don't be a *-bag. Care for Archaiea!

Zomg I haven't commented on your comic like..ALL week T^T. It's not for lack of adoring each page! Actually I'm behind on commenting on like.. ALL my fav comics QAQ (I'm having an off week--ALL thanks to that page fiasco XD)

ANYways! I love how they're just..trusting each other more and more. I gotta say I love the fact that your characters communicate XD---one of my biggest pet peeves in movies nowadays is misunderstandings that change relationships for the worst that never woulda happened if they didn't communicate!
rufiangel 2nd Nov 2014, 6:12 PM edit delete reply
Serpy!!!! *_* You are such a sweetheart!! *huggles* You know I adore you? <3 Thank you for leaving comments like you do, I love reading them <3

I'm glad you're enjoying the talky-talky bits!! :D I agree with the communication thing. It's so important. u_u Sometimes wish I could have more time to dawdle on more talky-talky, but as I'm aware that sometimes it's unnecessary I end up being as economic as I can with words. That said, this particular conversation took a bajillion rewrites of script to get right so I'm glad to hear it's being received alright!! *bows with gratitude*

I really hope the page thing isn't tearing you up now ;_;* gosh I can only imagine losing a week's worth of updates OTL;;; I'd probably want to crawl into my covers and hide forever ;;; Hope you're feeling better dear!!
HeSerpenty 2nd Nov 2014, 10:47 PM edit delete reply
Aawwww *huggles* I love ya too, girl!

You're story has a great balance with the talky talky bits and the action! Talky bits are needed too! And this just happens to be about something we all WANT TO KNOW ABOUT! The rewrites musta paid off cuz it all flows so smoothly! I admire your talent so much! <33

B-but I admire YOUR talent so much! Ahhh!

No the correct approach is to tell Abel you Have stopped trying to be free of it so he won't order every cursebreaker still alive executed. THEN go free yourself of it, which, from what happened back in the first chapter, would involve some Very sturdy hooks to hold the thing taut when it is at its maximum looseness, then slip out of it. Finally bury the whole mess, pole hooks, chains and all in the deepest oceanic trench available, or get someone to melt it down into ashes.

The name for a 'dot dot dot' is "ellipsis," by the way.

It is, indeed...!
