Happy Monday, folks! :)

Lyn has actually been standing there the whole time, as a side-note... XD; I don't know if I can include this somehow in-comic, but Archer is definitely missed by Briar - he just won't say anything out loud because he doesn't want to draw too much attention to his absence, and luckily for him, the Defender is slightly distracted... (though for how much longer, I can't really say...? :'D)

I hope you enjoy today's update! See you on Thursday with the next one, and thank you for reading! <3

Thank you, KAM! :D

Oh, nice he healed her... :D

Go, Kylie!!!

@A/N: Well, you always can give Briar a thought bubble to clarify that...

(Thank you for the update, Rufi =) *hugs*)

Edit: Hmmm, I think Lyn should know that his sister is a lethian ice knight... So I wonder if he can deduct Knight K being her (I guess ice lethians are not so common...)

Haha, there's no space! I would need to input another panel if I really wanted to include it.

What Lyn knows or doesn't know is entirely up for speculation, since there is nothing in-comic to show. He may not even know he has a sister...
mjkj 13th Jul 2017, 5:57 PM edit delete reply
I do not think so. Her parents must have spoken about her at least once in his hearing...
rufiangel 13th Jul 2017, 6:14 PM edit delete reply
Hahahahahaha!!!!! Oh boy, Mjkj, don't say I didn't warn you, okay? XD;;;;

idk about that, it's could be that he was taken or hidden at birth or something and doesn't even know he has a "Real Mother" let along a sister or siblings in general.

I'm glad you find it so <3 :D

CiciEnixa called it last page. Maybe the heal feels different, because it's both health and spirit? Just guessing here.

I wonder if it's related to what Madou hinted at here. I'm interested to see what comes of this.
megados 11th Jul 2017, 3:29 AM edit delete reply
An interesting hypothesis. We'll have to see how this plays out.

@JC: Heh, heh, heh... ;D

@megados: It's in a cleric's nature to bring the healies~ ;)

Aww, I figured you were a good guy, Balzac :) That heal was a HUGE help I'm sure!

And Cain's feels different cuz it's filled with looooovvveeee XD hehehehe
DLKmusic 11th Jul 2017, 2:44 AM edit delete reply
I'm completely with you regarding Balzac, Proxy. I'm kinda hoping he will be a recurring character!
rufiangel 13th Jul 2017, 4:53 PM edit delete reply
@DLK: I'm happy you like Balzac! >w< He's certainly a character I enjoy writing and drawing~
rufiangel 13th Jul 2017, 4:53 PM edit delete reply
It really was! When you're strapped for potions and beat down quite a bit, a single heal is like a bottle of water in a desert ;v;*

And LOLOL Proxy you just made me burst into unsightly giggles with that XDDD
DLKmusic 11th Jul 2017, 4:43 AM edit delete reply
I can think of 3 possibilities (or a combination of any or all of the three) why they would feel different.

1: Cain's curse not only restricts the magic that Cain can use, but it also somehow taints it.
2: Cain may be a white mage, but he's also a silver mage, and that makes a difference.
3: the magic from anyone is personalized to some degree. this would also imply that the closer you are to someone, the stronger the magic would be, because the aura's of the two people would combine.

or, I could just be a lousy guesser... that's usually the case >_<
mjkj 11th Jul 2017, 1:58 PM edit delete reply
It could also be all three, DLK
rufiangel 13th Jul 2017, 4:57 PM edit delete reply
You're no lousy guesser, DLK! XD

I'd say that there are a couple of things you wrote that hit close to the mark, and another couple of things that are wildly off XD it'll eventually become clear what I meant here in the future! ;D

Bwahaha! Well, that's not quite how I expected her to win...;)
rufiangel 13th Jul 2017, 5:01 PM edit delete reply
No one guessed he was out of bounds, so I think no one quite expected the cop out XD (though I think readers wanted him to raise the white flag, so... ;D)

I notice Kylie's bro seems to be started to hear of the mysterious Knight K being a Lethian Knight in panel 2 there.

Is he maybe piecing some things together?
rufiangel 13th Jul 2017, 5:07 PM edit delete reply
He could be...?? But also, Lyn was standing guard (and still is XD;) and can't hear anything except for Briar's voice, so when Briar addresses him directly, it tends to catch his attention. That was all that panel was supposed to indicate, if I'm honest :'D

He wasn't in it to win it XD

This cracked me up XDDD gosh, the impressions these characters are giving...! LOL
makogun2000 12th Jul 2017, 12:41 PM edit delete reply
OK, calling it now. the opponent for the finals is totally going to be Kylie's Brother. I mean, this wouldn't be the first time Rufi's pulled that plot device...
DLKmusic 13th Jul 2017, 4:42 PM edit delete reply
Actually, I'm thinking that her final match will be against Fatal Rose's brother. a Mage. I think Rufi already gave us a foreshadowing of that.
rufiangel 13th Jul 2017, 5:10 PM edit delete reply
Well, dang, DLK, you beat me to answerin' before I could XD

I can't deny that's what I've been foreshadowing, yessiree. :P
rufiangel 13th Jul 2017, 5:09 PM edit delete reply
Now, now... It's my favourite plot device! Such delicious angst <3 ;D
CiciEnixa 13th Jul 2017, 11:41 PM edit delete reply
I actually facepalmed at that out of bounds panel XD Ah Kylie, you were so determined, good thing Balzac stopped you or you'd both be out of bounds (though he'd probably still lose since he was out first).

And while I agree with DLK that it's most certainly Fatal Rose's bro, I still wanted to hold onto the hopes that she'd be fighting Madou. Or at least we would see him over at the audience having some juice and copato crisps or something XDDD

(aahhhh, sweet sweet Briar, Kylie's new little fan <3)
rufiangel 17th Jul 2017, 10:32 AM edit delete reply
Definitely good thing, Balzac definitely didn't want an unnecessary faceful of ice XD

Madou has been summoned many a time throughout his absence! XD;; I guess he is truly missed -v-*

(When he grows up, he's gonna wanna be just like her ;D <3)
