Happy Monday errbody! <3 Thanks for your patience with the late update today. The next one might take some time for me to break into as well, we'll see - it involves a lot of, well, time-consuming inking, shall I put it. I'll try my best, though!

I'm setting this update at 11:59pm in an attempt to respond to as many comments on previous pages as possible before it goes up XD;;; sorry about being so dang behind!

I hope you enjoy today's update, catch you guys on Thursday - and if it has to be late, just later on Thursday than usual. I'll keep everyone posted! :D Have a happy start to your week!

You know, I actually have dropped so many hints about 'the truth' by this point I'm pretty sure you guys have got it without me saying anything! XD

Ophelia's having a change of heart about killing Lethian Knights, isn't she? She certainly seems to be coming off less wanting to kill.

And Kylie's next opponent is Madou, isn't it?

Her shocked expression and the person's lower clothing just makes me think the 'Ice Princess' is going to be having a rematch with our favorite emoticon speaking wizard.

I don't think the insurance of this place would cover such a rematch. Just saying. ;)
rufiangel 17th Jun 2017, 4:05 PM edit delete reply
@Lukkai: Fantasy world insurance must be incredibly hefty. I mean, the regulations here are already the sizes of telephone books. What must it be like in a world where explosive magic is a given? :'D
rufiangel 17th Jun 2017, 4:04 PM edit delete reply
I gotta say MST3K, I was surprised and cracked up to see this prediction! XD;; I guess people are probably wondering where Madou has gone at this point. I wouldn't put it past him to turn up randomly in the tournament either, given his track record XD

Seems like they are guardians of Lapia Oaks or the Aqua or something like this. She does look genuinly upset there.
No more "just be purged already" Ophelia? ;) Make sure to let Seia know what page you're on now, so you can both try to help the situation out :>
rufiangel 17th Jun 2017, 4:05 PM edit delete reply
Guardians of the Aqua, coming to a theatre near you... never XD
Jarvi 19th Jun 2017, 8:04 PM edit delete reply
Awwww... a Lapia Oak would make a great Groot :D

Ophelia: What a Lethian Knight is...
Me: Yes...?
Ophelia: A 'Lethian Knight' is...
Me: Yes......???
Ophelia: ... so much more than I thought!
Me: ... Gerdenget Ophelia! *flips table* XDDD

And now a new round starts, because you are such a tease, rufi XD Wonder who it could be, though... someone familiar?
rufiangel 17th Jun 2017, 4:06 PM edit delete reply
Mwahahahahahaaa XDDD


(Also, no one guessed who it would be! XD;;;)

I love your willingness to be super involved. Don't over comit though. Make the page, take some time for yourself and don't run yourself down. Sane artists produce better things for longer which is good for everyone involved.
rufiangel 17th Jun 2017, 4:09 PM edit delete reply
Aww, thank you Just_IDD! I understand what you mean by over-committing. It's tough to balance out life and comic-making and community building ;v;* But somewhere in the struggle I hope to hit a solid balance!

In the meantime I'll do my best to keep sane, with much thanks to my patient readers. Thank you so much for your support! <3

Hmmm there is that mention of a "key" is it safe to say Madou knows what a Lethian Knight truly is? I'd say so...

But what benefit could Madou have? Lapia Oaks I understand, but that's universe benevolent...Madou seemed to want something much more personal.
rufiangel 17th Jun 2017, 4:10 PM edit delete reply
I would say that Madou either knows, or he's just pretending he knows, or he *thinks* he knows... XD

But you're probably right about it being personal. That guy's got a one-track mind, after all... >.>!

I know who it is!!!!! Kylie's opponent is Ash Katchem!

Ash: "Jigglypuff, I choose YUUUUUUUUU!"
Headgamer 24th May 2017, 6:48 PM edit delete reply
That'd be good news for Kylie. All of Jigglypuff's moves are super close range and the extra reach given by a sword make it hard to get through to swordsmen like Marth and Roy.

*takes up a GameCube controller and starts playing*

'...All the allotted potions we get between matches...' *Pictures her downing 50 of them and the medic's eyes getting bigger as she picks up speed.
rufiangel 17th Jun 2017, 4:11 PM edit delete reply
This makes me think of all those times I've played JRPGs, especially FF games, and bought cheap potions and then downed like 50 at a time for healing in later portions of the game. XD I guess the rest of the party members would be yelling 'CHUG! CHUG! CHUG!' the whole time...

How is Kylie's hair still almost perfect? Teach me all her secrets! :'DD
Lukkai 27th May 2017, 9:37 AM edit delete reply
They probably have some "perfect hair" mixed into those healing potions.

Now as for any German readers of at least a certain age, I could make a "3-Wetter-Taft" joke here. Alas, I think only one of the regulars would understand it. XD
Karinite 30th May 2017, 3:05 AM edit delete reply
I need one of 'em then.
rufiangel 17th Jun 2017, 4:11 PM edit delete reply
Gosh, I'd love one, too. XD;;;

Ahhh WHO IS IIIT?? Rufi you tease!

I hope Ophelia is feeling like poop right now! Realizing the gravity of what she's done and all >___> (You know how I feel about her at this time LOL)
rufiangel 17th Jun 2017, 4:11 PM edit delete reply
That's probably a very accurate description of how Ophelia's feeling right about now, Serpy! LOL XDDD

...I thought he was wearing pants with shoes, but are those just really baggy knee-high boots? Or are his shoes part of his pants? I'm fascinated and confused by his shoes xDD
(and by pants I mean trousers, not underwear. That's what it means in British English, I seem to remember? x'D)
rufiangel 1st Jun 2017, 4:45 PM edit delete reply
Don't worry, I know how Americans say pants and mean trousers XD lolol!

He's wearing really baggy knee-high boots... they're new for me too, I hope I'm not depicting them too oddly XD blame Balzac and his weird fashion choices whenever they do look funny~ ;D

Nah, they actually look pretty cool, I was just... very fascinated by them xDD
