Happy Monday, folks! :)

With this page, Chapter Six has been concluded. I hope you've enjoyed the chapter, for all its talking heads galore (lol) and random factoid drops XD;; (By the way, 'Raven' is a named Ophelia dropped way back here when she was first introduced~)

I will now be taking a pretty solid break from normal comic updates until the end of January, to really plan well ahead this time. (I won't start a chapter without planning it all the way through like this one ever again, man was THAT stressful :'D) In the meantime, I will be posting in-between break stuff, but I won't be updating the SF page until Christmas. I just need a bit of a break! I hope you guys understand. :)

I have some gorgeous fanart to share with you guys, btw! ;3;* I received this from the wonderfully talented Lamelle, the sweet artist behind the webcomic Dubious Vulpes (which is gorgeous, intriguing and fun and you should read it XD) and ohohoho~ XD ♥


I just love everything about it! The composition, the attention to detail, the background, the colours, fwuuuu~ X3 Thank you so much Lamelle!

BYYY the way, re: giveaway - thank you to all the people who pretty much immediately responded to the emails I sent out, you guys are the best! X3 There are just three people who haven't responded yet. If you are one of these winners, please contact me asap, because I need your postal address! *_* Most everything has been posted last Friday, or today (I'm on my way out XD). :)

I still have a big announcement in the works - I'm still waiting on the details so I'm afraid I'll have to postpone it until it's for sure. I should be able to announce it properly sometime later this week, though. :) If all goes well.

Have a great start to your week, folks! X3 And again, thank you always for reading!

Hey guys, I'm going to moderate all comments for a while because the site was attacked today and I am not going to let that happen again any time soon, sorry for the inconvenience, but don't worry, you can still comment - it just may not turn up on the front page immediately. :)
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 8:14 AM edit delete
Okay, I let my guard down and thought it would be okay to not moderate the comments for a bit XP

Sorry if any of you guys had to see that! Moderating comments is back on.

Uh, oh...

Seia looks not so good now... =S

PS: enjoy your break :D

PPS: Woah, great fanart, Lamelle =D <3

Yeahhhh he seems a wee bit crispy :'D

And thankyew, Mjkj! I will :D

... Kylie, you're just tempting fate at this point :,D I saw Lamelle's NeMikey fanart at the thread and it's still as lovely as the first time <3

Also theoryyy~ Since last page ended with Madou saying he's going to 'royally piss off' Abel... what if Madou's calling the shots to kill off all the Lethians so there's only one key left (Kylie), and Abel will have to go through so much more just trying to get her now?

(I know it's terrible but :,D)
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 2:51 PM edit delete reply
Kylie can't help but be super hopeful :'D......

Also, fufufu, I wonderrrr? ;D
MST3KFan 14th Dec 2015, 6:24 PM edit delete reply
Dang... Looks like Kylie might be the last Lethian Knight NOW...

Not good.

Hope you have a good break here.
I hope to be on a brief one after my own story arc coming up soon (in preparation for the next college semester) with guest comics filling in in the meantime. XD

Ice Lethian Knight, that is. Not Lethian Knight in general! Remember: They were going after the ice wielders first. Probably hitting others only if they got in the way.
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 2:52 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, I remember seeing your thread calling out for guest comics! :) Looks like there'll be a lot to look forward to during the break! X3

Of course Seia isn't really dead he's just pretending to be dead so he can work behind the scenes with no one the wiser!

Geeze! How did I get in this Egyptian river again?

Looking forward to Ophelia's hopefully painful demise.
mjkj 14th Dec 2015, 11:26 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, deh nile is a really sneaky river...

...creeping on you while you do not pay attention to it...
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 2:55 PM edit delete reply
Lolol! It's funny, someone told me he wouldn't believe Seia was dead unless I drew the body... So when I did, people just got more hopeful that he's somehow alive! XD;; That's what I get for being PG-13 and not mangling the body more, I suppose :'D
Lamelle 14th Dec 2015, 9:03 PM edit delete reply
Seia has been better.. o.o
Ahh such a cliff hanger tho! >.< why you do this xDD

I'm just gonna stay here refreshing the page in february xD Enjoy Your break! Well deserved ^-^

And super duper happy you liked the fanart :3 <3

AND I actually haven't thought about it being a lot of talking heads. You did that really well since it never got boring at all! :D
Lukkai 15th Dec 2015, 11:07 AM edit delete reply
Well, it is a gorgeous piece of fanart!
mjkj 16th Dec 2015, 4:01 PM edit delete reply
Indeed, so true, Lukkai...

I hope ya get to see all the nice things are saying about your lovely fanart, Lamelle! X3

Thanks so much <333 the wheels of fate are beginning to turnnnnn...!! ;)

Oh gosh...I almost forgot him. Oh, oh no....:C
H-he's alive dangit, I BELIEVE!D:
Yes, this was a great chapter. Especially Madou. Madou always steals the show.<3 <3

I hope you have a super great break, Rufi!:D :D Looking forward to the secret announcement~ >D
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 3:57 PM edit delete reply
I'm glad you enjoyed all the Madou in this chapter! XD ahahaha, he's always an interesting character for me to write~~

And thankyew seamuffin! X3 I'll definitely be happy to take the break, lol. But hopefully I'll be back all bright-eyed and happy! X3

Very nice fan art!

Meanwhile, two weeks later fake Seia and fake guild emblem start melting. Which makes Ophelia start really sweating. :P
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 3:58 PM edit delete reply
LOLOL omg that'd be the best thing! I wish I'd thought of that!! XD

I mean, uh... Who's to say that that won't happen...? ;) ahahahaha
TheD-Wrek 15th Dec 2015, 5:29 AM edit delete reply
Ophelia! Sweetie! You're back! :'D

rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 3:59 PM edit delete reply
Lolol! Yep! XD She is a rather fun gal to draw, hehe X3
Digi5 15th Dec 2015, 7:58 AM edit delete reply
My hunch was right! I feel bad for misspelling his name! :C ...Hmmm, judging by the fact that Ophelia hasn't got the lethian guild emblem from Seia yet, I'm gonna say there's a -tiny- possibility that he's still alive.

That is great fanart! <3

Cici's theory is terrible but plausible! DX
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 4:00 PM edit delete reply
Lolol don't feel bad! Leia and Seia are just a letter apart! XD

And ahahahaha man... Seia, so many people have faith in you! :'D

Thanks always digi <3 I'll do my best to have a fruitful break! XD

Good she's leaving. If he hasn't Completely exploded/imploded he can Slowly cool down and heal. That Is a centralized wound on the middle of his back though so survived spinal injury at best = he's Not going to be back to what he was without some miracle....or someone attracted to the battle's energies that can do something to that effect.

As for breaks Take your break and LIKE IT. Take it fully and return to the story recharged. We will hibernate till then ^^
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 4:02 PM edit delete reply
LOL! XD Thanks, always, crestlinger! I'll do my best to LIKE my break! XD lolol

Also, man, so much faith in Seia :'D I knew I should've upped the crispy factor on the body but I guess giving readers that tiny shred of hope isn't such a bad thing... :'D
Proxy170 15th Dec 2015, 10:53 AM edit delete reply
Proxy170 he actually is dead??? D: No way!! Kylie is going to feel so much more alone in the world...this is awful.... :( And Michael and Nemi--after they seemed to be getting so close! What awful timing, Jinn...although I guess it's good to see that even he may be saved. And I know we're supposed to trust Madou but...he just strikes me as a neutral evil guy...only in it for himself...
Lukkai 15th Dec 2015, 11:10 AM edit delete reply
"Neutral"? Come on!

Madou is the poster boy for "chaotic" if I've ever seen one!
As for what kind of, I'd actually say chaotic neutral, but chaotic evil is also possible. Most important though is that he does not care whether his deeds will be considered good or bad. As long as he gets his way, he's happy.
Proxy170 15th Dec 2015, 11:12 AM edit delete reply
Haha I dunno, I feel like he's more methodical than meets the eye...or maybe I'm just crazy enough to get his logic lol But yes, totally about getting his way...
Lukkai 16th Dec 2015, 5:59 AM edit delete reply
Well, "chaotic" in terms of alignment does not (necessarily) mean being random. Those first three, "righteous/neutral/chaotic", are not about how methodical one acts, but about one's adherence to laws and rules. Righteous meaning you accept and follow them, even if you personally think it's wrong. Neutral that you accept and follow them unless you personally think it's wrong. Chaotic that you give a shit about them (as a certain troll here is giving a shit about any kind of civil manners and I am giving a shit about him).
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 5:19 PM edit delete reply
PROXYYYY <333 *glomps* ;3;* so happy to see you again here! And thank you for taking the time to catch uppp ahhh <333

Wow, your comment sparked a lot of great stuff about Madou's alignment! XD;; <3 He's definitely a shady character... (I'm glad he makes logical sense for you though XDDD)

Jinn has quickly become one of the most hated characters next to Abel after all the things he's done in Chapter Six, so far XD;;; lulz

Aaaand Kylie still has her party, right? ;) (for now!)

Lukkai 15th Dec 2015, 11:12 AM edit delete reply
Oooohh boy! I've got a hunch as to what that announcement might be and I'm so excited! :D

Also taking a break over the holiday season is well deserved. And you're hardly the only one, even among webcomic artists, to do so. Use the time wisely! (And that includes time for relaxation, mind you!)
rufiangel 16th Dec 2015, 5:20 PM edit delete reply
Really?! XD I'm glad you're excited! I hope it's what you're expecting, lolol!

I'll do my best to find relaxation and derp times during the break accordingly :'D lol, really!

I still don't know how no one at guild HQ noticed all the ice users were dieting save for those two.

Well, if there's any thing in all of the worlds that is truly evil, it's those "light" products in food engineering!

Trust me on that! I've studied the field for two years! ;)

That typo made me almost choke on my drink XDDD awww Headgamer! LOL!

So, here's a hint from me, if you don't mind hints: how come, indeed? ;)
