(Note: please check this DA journal out to help me promote the novel and maybe get a freebie bit of art out of it~)

Happy Monday guys! Another double-page update because I originally had this crammed into one page and realised it just looked too cramped, so I gave the panels some breathing space. :) Hope you guys enjoy the update!

I'm still out of town for family and health related matters so I hope you guys understand if my usual responses to comments and things aren't quite on time these days. Laptop is also undergoing weird technical difficulties so that's a little worrying too, but it's not too bad at the moment so I can still draw while I'm here. :) Woo!

I also got a wonderful potato fanart from Spellu but I'll save it for a bit later. You'll see why; it'll feel more appropriate on a later strip. :P

Anyway it's 5:30am here and I need to crash so apologies in advance if this author's note is less coherent than usual >_>

Have a great start of the week and see you on Wednesday!

XDDD <333 Yayyy I'm so glad you like, Serpy~! LOL! <3

It wasn't too bad! XD Since it was just me blowing up panels originally meant for one page rather than adding panels XD

Awwww, Cain...

Yup, what might that emotion be called...?

...and he really has so much faith in her... ^_^

Oh, Rufi *hugs* take care of yourself, please, I hope you do not have anything serious... *is concerned*

...and I also hope that your laptop will last...

...enjoy your time with the family :D

rufiangel 19th May 2015, 1:15 AM edit delete reply
It's a nameless emotion Mjkj ;D

Thank you for your concern! I think it'll be okay but we'll see. :)

I also hope my laptop will last. Since it's a Samsung I might get it checked out at after-service while I'm in Seoul.

Enjoying time with sister, yep~ thanks XD <3

Re: nameless emotion: speculation: So, in tomorrow's update Cain will find Kylie, and friday's update will be titled "I love you"...

(...only for it to be revealed it is about Mike and Nemi...) ^_^'

Great to hear you are enjoying your time. And I hope they can fix it.

Great page!
This would be a great time for some spells of elemental resistance!
rufiangel 19th May 2015, 1:15 AM edit delete reply
Ehehehe, thank you Matt! X3 <3

And yes, it would be... but Cain's spell arsenal only has general magic defense boosts. Which is still useful for this situation~!
MST3KFan 18th May 2015, 7:12 PM edit delete reply
Dang. Again with the emotions, rufi! Cain's feelings towards Kylie and how he's willing to brave things to get to her.

XD Ehehehe, yesss yesss emotionnnns mwahahaha

Dammit.. Madou lived ;_; Figured with cain being the one healing him there as still a chance of him kicking the bucket but oh well. Not that i completely hate him but he lit some of my favorite people on fire. Hes not on my good side atm =p
rufiangel 19th May 2015, 2:36 PM edit delete reply
LOL, Cain's best spell is 'Heal' XD lolol

Madou did indeed live. Hmm... now whether this is a good thing or not, remains to be seen. ;)

Aww... Now the poor thing is all confused! (^_^)
Nef 19th May 2015, 5:32 AM edit delete reply

Wondering what the potential ramifications of healing yourself are... Like a surgeon operating on his own body.
rufiangel 19th May 2015, 3:07 PM edit delete reply
XD No worries Nef, it's not quite like that in SF! Lololol, that would be rather complicated...!

Go Cain, go! Save the day from horribly evil Rufi's machinations.

Digi5 19th May 2015, 11:35 PM edit delete reply
I have a feeling Madou's got something up his sleeve (figuratively). Like he planned for this possibility... He is a tricky one. And WHAT DID HE SEE AT GROUND ZERO OF KYLIE'S [1ST] LCF???
rufiangel 21st May 2015, 11:35 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha, Madou is a trick-sy fellow indeed ;D as for what he saw, wellllll..... We'll seeeee ;D
Digi5 19th May 2015, 11:40 PM edit delete reply
Also, I ship Cain and Kylie, too. :) They've both been through a rough past, they're both strong (yet not the strongEST) in their respective fields (not that that has anything to do with love...), they both can be quite stubborn, they heal each other (figuratively/literally), ...anybody else wanna add something?

Wonderful pacing! I was a bit behind again and caught back up. The freeze noise covering the letters was a neat effect 2(?) pages ago. But the page right before this one when it was covering dialog it made it harder to read.
I understand the purpose to make it seem harder to hear but I think it takes one out of the immersion of the comic more since you must try harder to read it.
rufiangel 21st May 2015, 11:39 PM edit delete reply
Awww thank you JnP! I'm happy you've been enjoying the chapter so far!! :) always happy to know the pacing works! And thanks for the c+c re:sfx. I wasn't entirely sure if it would work the way I wanted it to. Next time I'll see how to work my way with this sort of thing so it's less intrusive :)
Lukkai 20th May 2015, 10:19 AM edit delete reply
Is it bad that I first read the page title as "Nameless Emoticon" and wondered about what Madou had done this time?
rufiangel 21st May 2015, 11:50 PM edit delete reply
Hahaha that can be the name of his solo album whenever he decides to quit being a black mage so he can be a pop singer :P

Cain may not be the strongest member of the party.... But he's certainly one of the most determined IMO.
Great page, my friend!
rufiangel 21st May 2015, 11:53 PM edit delete reply
Ehehe, yep! Well, determination is a factor that can be bolstered by certain variables... But yes, Cain has a high base x for it, we'll say! ;D
