Happy Wednesday, folks! :)

Remember you can check back on the last update and look at the author's notes if you need a refresher on who those two shady dudes are.

I really miss updating on Fridays too, guys. :'D I might come up with something to fill up that Friday gap that doesn't involve sacrificing too much of my sanity or health. XD; If you guys have any bright ideas, please feel free to share! Even if they're not so bright, lol.

I hope you enjoyed today's update, have a great rest-of-the-week and I'll catch you guys on Monday~ <3 Thanks always for reading!

Aww Nemi ;3; We all know you mean well, but Kylie (and Jinn) is right. You can't just kidnap Archer, he'd be upset. You know, among many other criminal offenses you would be doing trying to accomplish this.

Madou better come back with a barrel of juice XD

Kidnapping Archer, oh man XDDD

Hahaha, we'll see about Madou XD (or not, might just let him drink his juice off-panel! XD)

I'm not sure Archer appreciates being kidnapped... :'D


Wait a sec, who is there on the third panel? Surprise surprise!
rufiangel 28th Feb 2016, 1:26 PM edit delete reply
Please don't kidnap Archer just yet, I still need him! :'D lolol

And you mean Madou? XD
MST3KFan 24th Feb 2016, 8:47 PM edit delete reply
Nemi, you're sadly in the wrong here. You have to understand not everything is black and white.

When Kylie is even telling you nothing can be done, just listen.

And on Friday ideas...what about maybe just doodles/drawings of your stuff? Like sketchbooks have in them? Just show what goes on behind the scenes kind of stuff.
rufiangel 28th Feb 2016, 1:28 PM edit delete reply
Ooh those are good ideas! Thanks MST3K~ :D

I don't draw sketches nearly as much as I used to... I should think about reviving that habit once in a while! XP
Alicia 24th Feb 2016, 9:38 PM edit delete reply
YEEEEAH! Let's go kidna-- I mean, RESCUE Archer! WOO!

...I-I mean... uh... yeah kidnapping is bad and stuff. >____>; (Nice page! <3)
rufiangel 28th Feb 2016, 1:30 PM edit delete reply
LOL Alicia XDDD please don't encourage kidnapping just yet, I still need Archer!! :'D lolol
Seabiscuit 25th Feb 2016, 12:05 AM edit delete reply
Uh oh, Cain be in trouble again... D:

I'd be worried for Archer too, b-but at least he's not a slave... ;~;
Gosh, these two have a long way to go before becoming BFFs.:'D
Kat 26th Feb 2016, 1:38 PM edit delete reply
...when has Cain ever not been in some sort of trouble, though?
rufiangel 28th Feb 2016, 1:31 PM edit delete reply
@kat: LOL poor Cain, what do I put him through on a regular basis :'D
rufiangel 28th Feb 2016, 1:31 PM edit delete reply
No worries, Archer is making the best of his circumstances so he's a strong one :)

As for Nemi and Jinn, ahahahaha XDDD definitely!!
dawndemonica 25th Feb 2016, 12:27 AM edit delete reply
Friday updates could be Pinups. Poster like pics of whoever you want in whatever scenario you wanna see em putting jinn in a dress holding a tray in a bar serving a bunch of kijini, just to put him in his place for being mean to nemi all the time.
Lukkai 26th Feb 2016, 10:17 AM edit delete reply
Or just sketches along those lines. But about my thought as well.

Problem with that of course being that it somewhat breaks the flow when reading through the archive.
dawndemonica 26th Feb 2016, 12:19 PM edit delete reply
actually, instead of putting them in the archive along the story, they could be put into a separate archive. one for sketches and Q&A stuff and one for the story itself. would make the story flow smoother for those that just discover it or for those that want to archive dive. could also put the side stories in another archive so the main story isn't disrupted. it's just a thought.
rufiangel 28th Feb 2016, 1:35 PM edit delete reply
@Lukkai+dawn (re:archive break): yes, I'm loathe to break archive flow for sure. DPDs drove me nuts back in the day on MT for that reason XD; so yeah, probably will keep any special Friday updates separate, either in author notes or another archive/page as dawn suggested. I'll think on ways to make it happen without breaking story pages! :)
Lukkai 29th Feb 2016, 10:05 AM edit delete reply
DPDs still broke the story less harshly than any SGD. ;)

Yeah, MT veteran here. Story Discussions. We're putting the 'anal' into 'analysis'.
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 2:22 PM edit delete reply
@Lukkai: Oh man, I totally agree XD (with both statements hahaha not that I mind the latter!)
rufiangel 28th Feb 2016, 1:33 PM edit delete reply
LOL! XD no love lost for Jinn, I seeee :'D ahahaha XD

Thanks for the idea, dawn! :D pinups do sound like a good idea, if you guys don't mind them sketchy XD;
Headgamer 25th Feb 2016, 2:25 AM edit delete reply
I am getting the feeling that Nemi cares very deaply about slavory.
rufiangel 28th Feb 2016, 1:36 PM edit delete reply
Your feeling is probably correct, Headgamer! XD Nemi cares about 'justice', in general. :)
mjkj 25th Feb 2016, 4:27 AM edit delete reply
You tell him, Nemi!!!

Hmmm, I believe those thugs are in for a rude awakening... ;)

Re Friday update: maybe some q&a or some doodles or some fanart?

rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 8:21 AM edit delete reply
Nadine is certainly a thug XD Jaguar though... Well, we'll see!

All of those are great ideas Mjkj :D thanks! I'll think on them as I work out what I might like to do for Fridays!
Lukkai 29th Feb 2016, 10:07 AM edit delete reply
Well, you don't become a top-tier member of a criminal guild like that being a mere thug. So at the very least, he's a thug with a brain.
TheD-Wrek 25th Feb 2016, 9:22 AM edit delete reply
Those two... Man... It's so sad to see them bickering like that. o_o

The art is looking extra clean and crisp on page. Beautiful work. :)
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 8:22 AM edit delete reply
Oh dear, things are gonna get a lot sadder :'D sorryyyy!

Thanks D <3 I always appreciate you, bruh! X3
Centcomm 25th Feb 2016, 2:26 PM edit delete reply
Love the page! :D so much gold!
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 8:23 AM edit delete reply
Awww, super thank you Centy! <333 I'm so glad you find the page gold! ;D (lolol that is prolly not what you meant but I'm taking it anywayyy)

Matt Knab
Man, we need to stage an intervention for these two!
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 8:24 AM edit delete reply
That does sound like it might help the bad communication they have XP we'll see if the other party members try and help!
Crestlinger 26th Feb 2016, 8:20 AM edit delete reply
Maybe he's really an assassin sent to kill his 'master' and everyone who saw him? While we're guessing here hehehehe.
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 8:26 AM edit delete reply
LOL Cresty!! I'm pretty sure that would disappoint everyone a looot! Maybe that's why I would consider that... ;) lol <3
Proxy170 26th Feb 2016, 8:53 AM edit delete reply
Proxy170 know the relationship is bad when you consider this exchange to be more polite than previous ones XD Maybe there's still a chance they'll get along.
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 8:27 AM edit delete reply
Lolol Proxy! XD yes, it actually is relatively more polite ahahaha! Though this is about to quickly degenerate... :'D
Lukkai 26th Feb 2016, 10:19 AM edit delete reply
Well, Nemi is not entirely wrong and I think she's onto something with her gut feeling.
But Jinn is absolutely right in that at the very least, they haven't got enough information to do anything. Or even decide whether they should be doing something.
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 8:28 AM edit delete reply
Ehehehe Lukkai, I always enjoy reading your comments, have I mentioned that before? X3

I do hope to communicate two sides to everything when I can, or even three or four when I can wrangle it XD <3
Kat 26th Feb 2016, 1:32 PM edit delete reply
Awww, Nemi, it isn't quite that simple... X3

As for Fridays... I think something simple like doodles or sketches, or even Q&A would be neat
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 8:29 AM edit delete reply
Hey Kat! <3

Aww, thank you for those suggestions! They're all good! :D I do like simple, ahaha XD I'll consider them all as I work out Friday! Thanks!!
Jarvi 28th Feb 2016, 4:18 PM edit delete reply
I'm with Nemi :D Kidnap Archer, take him to Saeren village and release to the wild :) He won't complain, and even if, not for long for sure x)
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 8:31 AM edit delete reply
LOL Jarvi-nii XD! Man, Archer had better watch out... So many people wanting to kidnap him!! XD;;;

Outlaw 29th Feb 2016, 11:29 AM edit delete reply
Poor Nemi... Her heart's in the right place though!

Also, I like how Madou just wanders off. That's about what I'd expect from him!
rufiangel 29th Feb 2016, 2:25 PM edit delete reply
Yep, Outlaw! XD you've got the right measure of that silly black mage, lol!

Nemi certainly has a lot of heart... :')
Sarah 20th Apr 2016, 9:32 AM edit delete reply
Argh, dang scars, am I right? They make it even easier for weirdos to target people. The party just got away from some people looking for Cain....I hope they've stocked up on healing items!
rufiangel 21st Apr 2016, 8:56 AM edit delete reply
He certainly got branded where it's hard to miss! XD; And hey, don't worry - they don't need too many healing items when they've got a healer, right? ;D

Right? >.>
