Happy Thursday, folks! :D I hope you're having a great middle-of-the-week so far!

So Damatris of the fantastic Fallacy fame had a fab Nidi magnet left over from a con, so I purchased it and received it in the mail a few weeks ago! <3

^(Fab Nidi chilling on my fridge)

In the envelope, she also included an adorkable letter (XD) and a huge surprise of SF character headshot sketches!! ;3;*


They're amazing and I love them so much, thank you Dama-nee! ;3;*** *flings self at Dama for a major glomp* <333

I also really wanted to share this wonderful surprise I got on the SF Facebook page recently:
Gladewalker made this Cain keychain out of shrinkydink plastic and attached it to his school ID and ahhhhguuu I'm in raptures XDD <333 thank you for flattering SF so hugely, Gladewalker!! You're the best <33

Okay, that's it from me for now. Friday Flare will resume again tomorrow, probably with a few updates at once to make up for the sudden silence during the break, so I'll catch you guys either then or next Monday, when the next comic update goes up!

Thanks for reading!! Stay fresh and zesty this week! :D

Friday Flare has been updated!


I decided to answer a whole bunch of questions to make up for the complete lack of activity on Friday Flare for several weeks :'D I hope you guys find all the Q&A interesting! See you guys next Monday! <3

Wow, new and old friends... =)

So, why did Nemi have an escort??? =O

Is she royalty???

Hahaha, I suppose that's one way of putting it! XD;

An escort might be required for a multitude of scenarios. ;)

So, Nemi is on probation and ditched her guards?

Haha, Milo's losing patience real quick lol.

That first panel is totally awesome, btw. I'm always impressed with this comic's increasing quality.

He's definitely reining it in! XD

And thank you so much, Outlaw!! >3<*)/ I am really glad to hear that!! <3 It's so encouraging to know I've been improving! :D

Nemi had an escort, huh? Hmm... The plot thickens.

...Why is it I get that whole 'princess going undercover in the world' thing some JRPGs have implemented in the past. She definitely has that air about her thinking back on some her intense conversations about her race and Michael's...
rufiangel 10th Jul 2016, 11:55 PM edit delete reply
Oh man, now that you mention it that IS a really common trope in JRPGs! XD;;

Nemi is a fairly intense character when it comes to certain things, this is true... ;)
Headgamer 7th Jul 2016, 11:05 PM edit delete reply
She seems to be someone special, but why would she have a tag? I'm also getting the whole "princess going undercover" vibe.

This warrants a re-read of all the pages where she talks about her past.

Admittedly there aren't too many pages, though probably the biggest hints would be in Chapter Four, and Chapter Six. ;)

Way to rack up the bonus points!!

But...escort? Whaaa?
rufiangel 10th Jul 2016, 11:58 PM edit delete reply
It's what she excels in the most XD <3

And yep, escort! Though an escort could mean a lot of different things... ;)

Now which second would that have been? when she was fighting Sho? Escaped down a well? Her initial ditching?
rufiangel 10th Jul 2016, 11:58 PM edit delete reply
Her initial ditching XD Milo isn't like Madou!

I might be totally wrong, but reading the other comments about Nemi being a princess undercover made me remember pg 416, when we met Jaguar again. Could Nemi be the "little extra on the side" that Jaguar was talking about? Or maybe, Jaguar was the one to let Milo know where Nemi was...
rufiangel 10th Jul 2016, 11:59 PM edit delete reply
Fufufu, Digi... ;D That's one possible reading of the situation! <3

(magnet nidi~ <3)

Okay, so, this page was a surprise to me and first thoughts were "Nemi be Cat Princess?! Wat?!"

But then I read this page again yesterday and I started thinking. Why is Nemi and Milo on a first name basis? Why did she say a long time ago that she's only ever had imitation crab before (and the alt text i think said she was a country bumpkin or something [i dunno why i remember these but not what i ate for breakfast shoosh])? Is she pretending to be non royalty? Is her role more as representative member than anything as high as royalty?

Many questions. Milo has the coolest gloves though and I want them <3

(Magnet Nidi <333)

Fufufu <3 let me just say that you are definitely asking the right questions. XD <3

(Also your memory is impressive XDDD I am flattered your hard drive chose to remember this and not your breakfast LOL)

And yay I'm happy you like Milo's gloves <3 XD (I may have spent too much time on them lol)

All this Princess talk... for reals? :'D

The readers do seem to be pretty serious about it XD

An escort? Ohhh... I wonder about this~ :D
(Omg how did I miss this D:)

That sleeveless hoodie is looking real good.

Also I wouldn't think of princess at this point, even though the thought did cross my mind.
