Those of you who guessed they were going to ask for the journal - you are correct! :) Yeah, this 'negotiation' is going to get increasingly more awkward. Woo! XD;

As a side note, the Crossover Exchange 2 In Love will start uploading pieces over Valentine's Day (tomorrow!) so I'll update again over the weekend, just in the author's notes, with links so you guys can check stuff out. :D I submitted two thingamas, and that means there'll be two pieces in for SF too (assuming whoever got me didn't bail out XD;) so that's exciting! :D Crossover V-Day stuff is a chance to check out other awesome comics and artists too!

So have a great weekend everybody, and see you on Monday! :)

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Okay, it's already past that in my timezone XD; BUT it still counts!!


Twilight Trust (Grin) x Serpamia Flare (Cain) (I drew this one XD;)

Demented (Slayne and Kael) x Serpamia Flare (Kylie and Cain) (The amazing Doomy drew this one! <3)

POW! Right in the Nostalgia (Char) x Serpamia Flare (Seia) (I drew this one too XD;)

Abby Normal (Shadow Boy) x Serpamia Flare (Cain) (By the marvellous Hapy!)

Make sure you check out all the other pieces too, by the way, because they're pretty darn awesome XD <3 ahhh, the fluffies!

(Cain: In this crossover exchange I have been sliced by a mugger, kissed by a vampire, molested by a demon and pulled into bed by a shadowy figure. OTL;;; My... innocence... where...?)

Ahahaha, nope! XD; They're one of those recurring boss-fights, kindasorta? Well, Leela is, anyway... XD;;;
CiciEnixa 13th Feb 2015, 7:42 PM edit delete reply
Of course they would heal him, because HE'S EBIL!!! (yes i am still going with it until proven otherwise)

And, well, Leela has a point. As if Kylie and co. would readily hand over the journal the don't have. Ren needs to work on his ebil deduction skills.
Prayformercy 13th Feb 2015, 7:45 PM edit delete reply
PURE EBIL!!!!!!!!!!
rufiangel 13th Feb 2015, 11:24 PM edit delete reply
XD Renault is being so useless (he's literally just lying there doing nothing) I'd say calling him ebil is pretty fair. XD;;;

Kylie chose to tell the truth and not ask why they needed it, which probably troubles Ren more than anything else. Maybe Kylie's the one with bad ebil deduction skills? XD;;;

Can't wait to see your V-day stuff tomorrow btw <3 (and everyone else's of course) (well, late tomorrow anyway... because Timezones u_u)

Oh, v-day - you mean SAD?
Prayformercy 13th Feb 2015, 7:46 PM edit delete reply
also, CALLED IT!
Headgamer 13th Feb 2015, 9:24 PM edit delete reply
Yup! I guess I should have gone with my first thought, though I'm still not sure why they would think the party would hold on to such a book.
rufiangel 13th Feb 2015, 11:25 PM edit delete reply
Hmm. Why WOULD they think the party would hold onto such a book? :P In fact... what IS that book anyway? Who cares about what some old historian wrote, right?...
Prayformercy 13th Feb 2015, 7:56 PM edit delete reply
Leela has been having a bad day with her rolls is what it is, cut her a break. She keeps getting 1s on her diplomacy checks.
Headgamer 13th Feb 2015, 9:26 PM edit delete reply
Well they DO know where the book is so that's some info they could trade should they feel like it. Of course if they aren't going to comply with the second task then no point telling them anything.
rufiangel 13th Feb 2015, 11:29 PM edit delete reply
They... sort of know where it *could* be? XD; An educated guess could be made, for sure~!
Prayformercy 14th Feb 2015, 12:04 AM edit delete reply
Last they saw of the book they gave it to seia. So inquiries as to where he is could be made, but i dont believe they know anything more then that at this point.
Headgamer 14th Feb 2015, 6:03 AM edit delete reply
Seeing as they were so misinformed as to think the party has the book just the info that Seia had it last would be valuable enough to trade. It'd kind of throws Seia under the bus, though if anyone could handle it it's him and the enemy is already targeting Seia anyhow to prevent him from informing his guild. One would hope Seia has already taken precautions to protect the book seeing as he knows Able is after it so maybe.... hopefully he doesn't have it anymore.

None the less the knowledge that he was the one who last had it would still be invaluable. Otherwise how would they know Cain didn't trade it for Coco feed? However, as I said if they are just going to try and kill the party because they won't comply with the second task there is no need to trade the info for nothing.
Lukkai 14th Feb 2015, 1:19 PM edit delete reply
Trade if for Coco feed?

Or use it as Coco feed?
rufiangel 14th Feb 2015, 9:27 PM edit delete reply
Cocos wouldn't eat paper that ancient and musty! Cocos have standards too. XD;;;

Ain't she just a little ray of sunshine? :D

Yeah, that she is...

Ya know, after reading that AU page you left in the comments from last page, you could continue it on this page.

I just can't stop thinking about it. arg.
rufiangel 13th Feb 2015, 11:30 PM edit delete reply
XD;; A little difficult with this one, but I can always try later? I'll post it here if I do!
rufiangel 14th Feb 2015, 12:49 AM edit delete reply
Alright, I did it, but it's the last one because there is definitely such thing as slapping a butt too many times. XD;;

I was laughing so hard I had a coughing fit.

Twice. (had to pause halfway through the page to recover from the 1st one)

XD;;; In that case, I am proud and glad it was worth the effort, LOL.

Quite honestly, Cici-muffin? It's pretty much all you guys and not me XD;;; (I really don't have this much of a fixation on Cain's rear end, REALLY!!)
Lukkai 14th Feb 2015, 1:20 PM edit delete reply
Priceless! :D

Also that spell is like the best spell ever, isn't it?
rufiangel 14th Feb 2015, 9:28 PM edit delete reply
I guess you'd use it while clubbing to show your appreciation? XD;;;
Crestlinger 16th Feb 2015, 10:56 AM edit delete reply
Spell renaming. Hate to see what Holy Fist would end up as lol.
Lukkai 17th Feb 2015, 9:27 AM edit delete reply
Well that one doesn't really a I really want to go there?

And @rufi: Well of course! That's just being considerate and polite!
Seabiscuit 13th Feb 2015, 11:06 PM edit delete reply
Gosh, Leela is a violent one! Well, I already knew that, but still.
...Hmmm. Maybe Ren healed him because he's indeed evil with them!>:O
Heal Cain and then I'll believe them!

I love Renault though and want to believe he's good, hahah.

Can't wait to see the v-day stuff!
rufiangel 13th Feb 2015, 11:32 PM edit delete reply
I... think Ren healed Renault because his party just fried the poor guy to a crisp. XD;;; I could be wrong, of course, maybe Renault is just secretly really ebil and this was all a really elaborate plan, yeah. >___>;;; (Give me more credit than I deserve, wooooo!) Cain wasn't in pain btw, so he didn't need a heal XD!

And me neither, I can't wait~! But yeah, being in a future timezone sucks, it's half an hour until it's Valentine's Day in Hong Kong but I know it won't be V-Day in California until aaaaaages later! >.<
Prayformercy 13th Feb 2015, 11:54 PM edit delete reply
Im sorry rufi but thats just crazy talk. Im sticking with pure ebil Ren and renault until further notice. :D
rufiangel 14th Feb 2015, 12:17 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha, Ren... now there's a character that's hard to define on the D&D Alignment chart. XD;;
Prayformercy 14th Feb 2015, 12:20 AM edit delete reply
realistically id put him at lawful good. From his point of view hes obeying his master and what he sees as the law, and doesn't approve of meaningless violence to the point of healing his enemy when he feel hes wronged them. (again this is all from what we've seen so far, if there is an undercurrent or ulterior motive it could be completely different) Im a bit of a newb at dnd alignments so who knows if im right, but thats how i see it =p
HeSerpenty 14th Feb 2015, 1:39 AM edit delete reply
OOoohhh this Ren guy kinda seems like a bad-a*s........ wrapped in polite coating XD. I feel like he probably could be dangerous though...why else would Abel send him out to confront the party? Especially Cain (who seems nervous). Ooooo I'm curious of what their second request is... GAAAH why do I havta wait til Monday QAQ

(yaay Crossover Exchange!!! I can't wait it's gonna be good :D)
Lukkai 14th Feb 2015, 1:23 PM edit delete reply
Wrapped in polite coating and a pretty strict and decent behavioural code it would seem to me.
rufiangel 14th Feb 2015, 9:31 PM edit delete reply
Ehehehe, Serpy! XD <3 Yep, that's Ren in a nutshell - kinda bad*ss, coated in polite and smothered in decent behavioural code. XD;;;

Abel sent Ren out to confront the party because... [spoiler!] he knew it would hurt Cain's feelings a lot. XD;;; [/spoiler!] Well, that, and because Ren is more than capable.

Crossover Exchange happenin' as I type this, and yuss it has been so good so far! <333 :D
Jarvi 14th Feb 2015, 4:17 AM edit delete reply
Are they evil enough to hurt one of their own, or is he really a victim hummmm.. we'll see ^^'

Cain seem pretty nervous about this guy. But.. he's a healer right? Can a healer be dangerous? :o
Prayformercy 14th Feb 2015, 10:22 AM edit delete reply
Also -> healers at the very least so far have 1 combat ready spell, the Holy palm. Details are unknown but its been said that its a high level attack at the very least. And if ren is as strong as Rufi has been hinting at, it could be a hard battle.
rufiangel 14th Feb 2015, 9:33 PM edit delete reply
Ehehe, we'll see indeed~ XD;; though really... he looked as shocked as anyone would be to get blasted by a Lava Burst >__> ... at least, that's what I thought was clear, but no one believes me at this point so oh well. XD;;;

A healer may not be dangerous on his or her own, but.... ;)
Prayformercy 14th Feb 2015, 10:21 AM edit delete reply
Considering they know how strong the party is, and they have a healer who can, do a FULL HEAL from that far away like its nothing, id edge towards they have no problem hurting their own to further their cause.
rufiangel 14th Feb 2015, 9:35 PM edit delete reply
Ren's a bad-*ss in a polite candy coating and a mean heal. XD;; <3 He don't like hurtin' nobody~!
Lukkai 14th Feb 2015, 1:25 PM edit delete reply
Hmm.. Ren seems all

- a good reader of expressions/the truth in words. Good empathy/scrutiny skill there.
- distressed by what he learned.
- exceedingly annoyed by Leela.
rufiangel 14th Feb 2015, 9:36 PM edit delete reply
:D I like this reading of Ren!

If only the party had met Ren under different circumstances... they'd probably be able to get along.

Leela's Plan A: Kill 'em all!
Plan B: Kill 'em all!
Plan C: Resurrect 'em & kill 'em again!

Sounds like you're readin' her mind! XDD
Headgamer 15th Feb 2015, 12:31 AM edit delete reply
I think Ren's a nice guy who's simply duty bound in to doing not so nice things. I kind of like him.

Leela just wants more dead bodies around to mess with.
rufiangel 15th Feb 2015, 1:02 AM edit delete reply
Ehehehe, yay! :D <3 That makes me happy! Ren is in a... complicated situation? XD; Maybe?
