Hey guys! Thanks so much for your patience! :) Here's the update, and it's a really major one for me personally. <3

If the meaning of this page was lost on you, may I provide the refresher course for this page and this page and hope the page makes more sense now. XD;;

It took... uhm... *counts* 386 updates since the quest was given for the actual character to be formally introduced as not a random character, but who he actually is. I'm so happy~~~ ;A;* *weeps tears of joy for Lyn* (He technically appeared in the second-last panel of this page but I guess it would be stretching it to call that his 'first appearance' XD)

Man... I really am so happy I've come to this point. Lyn has been in my head for SO. LONG. <33 (Try 14 years :'D ;;;;) I thought everyone would guess he was Kylie's brother when he first appeared, I was so wrong XD;;;;;; At least as far as I know, no one guessed! If you did actually wonder if he was, let me know in the comments and brag you knew all along XD <3

Okay uhm I do actually have some other stuff I wanted to share, but I'll wait until the next update because this one is special to me and I kinda want to leave the page on its own. Uh, alongside my warbles of joy XD;;;

I'll see you guys next update, which will hopefully be on Monday as per normal schedule! :)

... I am upset of this clear trickery but at the same time I am surprisingly happy it wasn't Briar XD (Not that I hate him, he is still cute in his own muu way, maybe because Lyn is badass and am so happy that he is related to Kylie~ <3)
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:47 PM edit delete reply

Honestly I didn't intend to 'trick' people, I just kinda... didn't correct people's assumptions XDDD

I'm very happy you're happy because Lyn has a super special place in my heart <3 lolol <33

Hey, you're back!

I did think he was, but never said anything about it. Chekhov's gun ya know?

Random thing I noticed, but you seem to live 12 hours away from where I do, as it's 12 noon on Wednesday where I am. Comics from the future!
Golnor 15th Sep 2016, 12:16 AM edit delete reply
Waiiiiiitttttt. Did I just misread why it was glowing? It's Lyn?
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:48 PM edit delete reply
Yep Golnor, it's Lyn XDD
Don't worry, I can see in retrospect how it's not 100% clear, although I was hoping the fact the gem wasn't glowing so brightly when Briar picked it up would have allowed readers to cotton onto the difference. :'D The next page will make it pretty crystal, though, I hope! <3

My first time posting even though I've been reading for quite some time. I'll agree with you there on knowing for quite some time but not saying anything. Was the same thing with the paper Madou gave to Cain. I should have said something then.... :_(
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:48 PM edit delete reply
Hello Tsunamiatunzen! <3 X3 I'm glad you're dropping a comment to let me know you've been reading! <33
Golnor seems to have thought it was Briar, not Lyn, so I'm not sure which one you meant XD;;; but either way, I'm always happy to hear what people think! ;3;***
I'm impressed you thought of Alvonce's research too XD <3 Please please feel free to drop comments when you want to guess at things! It's super fun to read, and you can bask in the warm, smug glow of being right later XDDD

@Golnor: Yeah, Rufi is located in HongKong, which is 12 hrs ahead of EDT (though 13 hrs ahead of EST, since HK does not have dailight-saving time)...

Sorry that the updates have been sporadic lately! But thank you for your patience <3

I do live 12 hours in the future for a lot of peeps! ;) Hopefully that makes the updates more 'on time' for you <3 XDD

Wait. Lyn, or Briar?

Also I'm disappointed by the lack of hamsters on this page.
Just kidding :P Awesome page!! It must feel great to finally have reached a "big reveal" that you've been planning for so long! Congrats on reaching such an important point in your comic! :D
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:48 PM edit delete reply
Lyn! XD

And I'm sorry about the lack of hamsters. They all ran away when it came to the final shoot, so we had to make do with Kylie's charm ring. XD
It's good to finally reach this point, for sure! Thank you very much Kat <3 X3

You have no idea how glad I am it isn't Briar (*grumbles* brat!)
It was the hair, I think. Briar's hair colour fooled most of us and we were thinking how Briar's hair looked like Kylie's instead of how Lyn's hair looked like Kylie's mom's...

Pssh, gotta get those hamsters under control
Headgamer 15th Sep 2016, 3:24 AM edit delete reply
Kylie's brother is the spoiled boy's guard named Lyn.

I'm betting that'll make him hard for Kylie to take him with her. >.>
Crestlinger 16th Sep 2016, 5:59 AM edit delete reply
Unless Madou gets wind of things and turns Briar into a rose or something.
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:49 PM edit delete reply
If Madou has the ability to turn people into objects, we should all be very, very scared :'D

You are betting on a fairly likely pool, good sir. XDD

I honestly didn't know I'd manage to pull the wool over readers' eyes on this one! XD muwhehehehe <33 *seeps in satisfaction*

Mystery SOLVED! ...Well, for us, the audience anyway.

Kylie and company are still in the dark though.

Happy you got to finally put this character in you've had in your head for so long, rufi. Must have been agony. XD
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:49 PM edit delete reply
Yep! X3 Just for readers to know for now~! <3
And thank you MST3K for sharing my joy! X3 It's definitely been agonising, LOL XD;; I'm glad to finally reach this point! <3
DLKmusic 15th Sep 2016, 5:50 AM edit delete reply
I am thrilled to tears that it's Lyn and not Briar!!!

Of course, that does beg the question of why it didn't go off when they first met Lyn. Of course, maybe it did, but it was tucked safely into a pouch so noone noticed...

PS. Glad you're feeling better!

kaiki83 19th Sep 2016, 3:06 AM edit delete reply
Lyn was not with them the first time they met Archer
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:49 PM edit delete reply
I'm thrilled that you're thrilled, DLKmusic! XD <33
As kaiki says, when they first met Archer, Lyn was not present though they might have seen him from a distance. But you are correct that the blood crystal was not out in the open at the time, anyway. :) (The glow range on this crystal seems to be rather short, too. XD;;)

And thank you! <3
Allzephyr 15th Sep 2016, 8:15 AM edit delete reply
Well, this comes as a surprise to absolutely no o- *spits out drink*
What!? It's actually the other guy?!

I didn't see that one coming. Well done on that.

AW YEAH <3 I'm so glad to have caused a spit-take <33 XDD thank you very much, Zephy <33

Now how is Lyn going to meet up with Kylie? Huh. In hindsight, Lyn has his sister's physical prowess. And their mom's blonde hair.
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:50 PM edit delete reply
Lyn does indeed have his mom's blonde hair~ X3
(and Digi I finished Nemi with cocos!!!! <3 I Dev-noted you about it <3)
Kat 15th Sep 2016, 9:53 AM edit delete reply
I HAVE been wondering about Lyn though; that thing he has around his head, is it like some sort of glasses, or... it looks kinda like a blindfold? (which would lead me to assume that maybe he's blind? but that's just me hypothesizing here...)
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:50 PM edit delete reply
A blindfold is pretty darn close! We'll learn a bit more about it on the next page! :)
(I'm glad the page has got you wondering <3 XD)
Seabiscuit 15th Sep 2016, 11:50 AM edit delete reply
EEEEEE Oh gosh YES. I'm disappointed in myself for not getting it RIGHT away, gosh- But oh man, how exciting! Ahhh Kylie you're SO CLOSE! :'D
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:50 PM edit delete reply
Donchu be disappointed seamuffin! XDD *squish-hugs* I'm very happy you're excited though ehehehe <33
(Kylie *was* so close, literally... now she's locked up kinda far away :'DDD)

Thank you Mjkj! :) I appreciate the concern!

*hugs and kisses*

I didn't expect him to be the brother,I guess the joke's on me XDD BUT I CAN'T WAIT FOR THEM TO MEET!
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:51 PM edit delete reply
THANKYEWWW <333 *eats all the Hershey's kisses*
Ahahaha azure-rin, I didn't mean to yank your chain or nothing XD <333 but I'm very glad you're looking forward to itttt!! <333
Jarvi 15th Sep 2016, 9:04 PM edit delete reply
Oh I'm so happy it's not the little brat :) And what's the deal with Lyn then? It was said that he is trapped and restrained, and it does seem that he has this thing covering his eyes, something on hands? And he doesn't speak, at least for now :o We'll see..... hmmm...

Also, he has hair like mother, ha, you deceived us with brats similar color to Kylies xD :)
Jarvi 15th Sep 2016, 9:38 PM edit delete reply
I have a fan theory...

Next, Kylie and the gang will run off the jail. They will discover that Lyn is the brother. They want to help him escape his masters, but he wouldn't go without Archer, because he loves him, so they plan a big escape, which ends up with kidnapping Briar. And they all run away, to some place far away, and they drop the little brat somewhere off, where he has to work hard for his living so that little s...t learns to treat people properly, and Lyn and Archer go together to Saeren's place where they live happily ever after ♥

Okay.. that's not theory, but a fantasy of mine, but I'm gonna stick with it ;D
DLKmusic (at work) 18th Sep 2016, 10:31 AM edit delete reply
Great fantasy, Jarvi, but you forgot to add that the chains suddenly fall off of Cain!!!!
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:52 PM edit delete reply
@DLKmusic: And that was Serpamia Flare, folks! :'D
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:51 PM edit delete reply
LOLOLOL Jarvi-nii this really cracked me up XDDD (esp the part you call Briar a little snot because I was reading super seriously until that point XDDD)
It's a a great fantasy indeed XD <333
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:51 PM edit delete reply
You have noticed all the important things, Jarvi-nii! XD; We'll learn a bit more next page <3
And LOL, I didn't know that it would be so effective in distracting people tbh XDDD I'm very pleased ahahahahaha XDD
Crestlinger 16th Sep 2016, 6:00 AM edit delete reply
Whew. Not the rancid soul. Now why does he have blinders on?

Why, indeed? ;)

OMG WAIT WAIT...................................... HE THE BROTHER??! Omg is it finally him?!?!!??! Lyn! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I'M SO EXCITE!!!
14 years, Rufi??? GOOD HEAVENS I admire you and your diligence!

I can't wait to learn more about him :3
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:52 PM edit delete reply
YEPPPPP XD <333 I'm so excited that you're excited honestly yaaaaay <333

I know we'll be hitting points like that in SoO for you too in time <333 *gets ready to celebrate*

I'm glad he's finally out in the open XD <3
Kat 17th Sep 2016, 12:41 AM edit delete reply
...I keep snickering every time Briar says "mu", because in Spanish a cow's "moo" is written "muu" or "mu", and... I can't help thinking of a cow every time he says "mu".
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:52 PM edit delete reply
Well, now you're milking the situation for all its worth, given his tendency to act like a cow sometimes with his muu-ds... XD muu...!

Proxy170 18th Sep 2016, 4:33 PM edit delete reply
At first I was like "HEY YOU LEAVE THAT ALONE!" and now I'm like "OMG GLAD YOU FOUND IT!" XD Now to arrange a way for their paths to cross????

*edit* Just read your author comment and now I'm like "wait...was there ever a hint it was him before this page? I thought we just met these guys!" and I see Cici saying she thought it was Briar but I'm like "Wait seriously guys, when did we meet these guys before??". Am I missing something? D: *rereads furiously*
rufiangel 19th Sep 2016, 5:53 PM edit delete reply
LOL I'm glad you're glad they found it! XD And hmmm, how indeed will their paths cross, if indeed that must happen? ;D
And I know after our chat that Cici clarified XD <33 just the brief glimpses before, nothing major!! (Sorry that you ended up rereading so much of it as a result but XDD so glad you had fun re-reading too ;3;* <333)

I ALWAYS have fun on a reread, especially with complex stories like yours!
