Happy Thursday, folks! :)

I'm glad to be updating on time this week. I know it's been a rough few weeks with updates, so I appreciate that you guys have been so patient!

Work is easing up and I have the day off tomorrow, which I'm pretty happy about XD

If you guys are regular readers but haven't popped into Discord yet, please do feel free to pop on in and hang out :D

I hope you guys enjoy today's update (in case you guys need it, here's the reference link and if you guys haven't caught it, Blood is Drawn continues to update on Tuesdays and we uploaded the 8th episode this week, so feel free to check that out if it's your cup of tea :D

That's it from me for now! I'll be sharing a stall with a friend at an art fair this weekend, so I might have some stuff to talk about next week - we'll see XD

Have a great weekend, everyone~

Hey folks, I've just finished prepping for the art fair this weekend and I'm exhausted :'D I hardly got any art done today, which was what I was kind of hoping to use this break for, since I'll be away all weekend at the fair.

I'm just going to go ahead and take a break on Monday and aim for an update next Thursday -v-a

Thanks for your patience! Hopefully I'll make up for this one way or another...

Have a fantastic weekend, y'all!

"Well, if that's the case then dad and his friends will have to stop the monster on their own. Let's get outta here!" ;-)

Can't say that didn't cross Briar's mind XD
mjkj 7th Dec 2017, 6:37 PM edit delete reply
*lol* he would not work for briar anymore - he would be free to join his sister and her party... <3

@author notes: have fun at the art fair =D
Thank you <3 - have also a great weekend =)

Lvl. 50 Monk joins the party!
Has special quality: Kid Brother reveal!

@Tsunamiatunzen: A level 50 isn't bad at all! :O
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:32 PM edit delete reply
@Mjkj: He'd certainly be free~ heh.

And thank you! :)

DAMN Lyn doesn't even have to say anything to deliver a burn! That's gotta be tough for little Briar, but I hope he can see how important it would be for Lyn to be FULLY in the game.
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:33 PM edit delete reply
To be fair, Lyn *can't* say anything XD lolol

Briar is certainly feeling the pressure; he can tell everyone's in a bit of a pickle, especially his Dad. :')
megados 8th Dec 2017, 3:59 AM edit delete reply
Now it might be a good time for Briar to make a mature decision.
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:33 PM edit delete reply
He's a lonely kid, it's a tough one. ;v;*)/
MST3KFan 8th Dec 2017, 4:50 AM edit delete reply
I don't think Lyn would continue to work for Briar...BUT be his friend maybe? That seems like something I would think could happen, but who is to say other than YOU, rufi. XP
Scia 8th Dec 2017, 6:01 AM edit delete reply
That's what I was thinking. Maybe they could at least write letters or something. =)
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:34 PM edit delete reply
Heh, heh, heh. ;)

Well, if there were ever a time, it would be now. A lot of lives are at stake.
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:35 PM edit delete reply
To say nothing of the increasing property damage XD

But yes, quite a lot is at stake if they can't contain and get rid of this thing in good time. ;v; Briar's feeling the pressure!
HeSerpenty 8th Dec 2017, 6:10 AM edit delete reply
Rufiii this page is exceptionally pretty! The coloring is vibrant and beautiful <3

Ohh moment of truth---will Briar do the selfless thing and let him go....or will he keep him? Very interesting dilemma here!
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:36 PM edit delete reply
Thank you Serpy-kins!! ;v;* I'm very glad you like the page <3 much orange to be had here, I'll be glad when the sun sets a little further XD

Briar liked Lyn from the get go, it's not so easy letting him go. ;v;* I'm glad you find it interesting <3 fufufu.
CiciEnixa 8th Dec 2017, 1:00 PM edit delete reply
The thing is, I can totally see Briar being selfish here and not letting Lyn go. BUT I also want to believe that he's learned his lesson, and he would want to fix this mess he helped come to fruition before it kills anyone.

Lyn however... man, you cold. I see the family resemblance right there XDDD
DLKmusic 9th Dec 2017, 12:08 PM edit delete reply
Actually, Cici, for me, the Jury is still out on how cold Lyn's answer is. I would like to know why Lyn's answer is no.

I have it in the back of my head that his "super punch" is kind of a sacrificial attack. Once he uses it, he may never be able to fight again.

That may or may not be cannon, but I wouldn't put it past Rufi to break our hearts with something like that. And when you consider how enthusiastic Lyn has been over his job of protecting Briar, it's a good bet that there is more to the story.
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:38 PM edit delete reply
@DLK: My goodness, what must you think of me! XD *quietly rewrites script*

But yes, Lyn wasn't quite able to explain his answer (to his own frustration too, in part) but there are reasons indeed. We'll get to them. ;)
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:37 PM edit delete reply
@Cici: LOL @ family resemblance XDDD To be fair, Lyn *can't* say anything to explain his response any further! He did pause before he gave his answer, I hope that at least shows *something* XD
dawndemonica 8th Dec 2017, 2:04 PM edit delete reply
Briar, ask another question. Ask if he would at least be your friend.
DLKmusic 12th Dec 2017, 6:35 AM edit delete reply
Great Question, Dawndemonica!
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:41 PM edit delete reply
Hehehe. One does wonder why it doesn't even occur to Briar to ask. ;)

(Lyn breaks the vow)
Lyn: Now you're on your own you little sh.....
Archer(putting his hand over Lyn's mouth): Okaaay, that's enough of you talking for today ^^'
Jojobean 14th Dec 2017, 12:14 AM edit delete reply
this just made my day
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:41 PM edit delete reply
XDDD Jarvi-nii LOL! That's amazing, poor Briar XDDD
Jarvi 15th Dec 2017, 8:44 AM edit delete reply
Well... it has some kind of base, even though it was a joke xD Briar is a bit of a little brat, and if Lyn was able to just hear him for that whole time... xD
Gilrandir 14th Dec 2017, 11:59 PM edit delete reply
Awesome, @Jarvi. Well done!

Or, alternatively ...

(Lyn breaks the vow)
<In squeaky high-pitched voice of Sisumbaji from 'Pirates of the Carribean':> "And so ... we will go to war!"

OR, possibly ...

<In voice of Impressive Clergyman from 'The Princess Bride':> "Mawwiage. ... Mawwiage is what bwings us togethew ..."

That's sad.:c
B-but he'll be going with sis!! Yeah...


rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:42 PM edit delete reply
For some things to begin, some things must end. :')

But we'll see how it goes, because sometimes things just end. -v-a lolol
Damatris 10th Dec 2017, 12:05 AM edit delete reply
Not a surprising decision.
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:43 PM edit delete reply
Mmhmm. :) I'll say this much, though, Dama-nee - Lyn's answer may not have been the same, a year ago... ;)
Damatris 14th Dec 2017, 1:37 PM edit delete reply
Too bad the plot demands other things... xD Otherwise they could have had it all, liken an Adele song.

...I have no idea what I'm saying.
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 2:14 PM edit delete reply
Aaaand now I have the song in my head XD

Which will be appropriate as the characters all go... rolling in the deep. -v-
mjkj 10th Dec 2017, 4:27 PM edit delete reply
*hugs Rufi* good decision <3

I hope you enjoyed the art fair...
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:43 PM edit delete reply
Thanks Mjkj, I appreciate your support! :)

And it was a good learning experience XD

The Accidental Ninja
Huuu... :(
Briar-brat may be a brat, but I can see where he's coming from. It seems that Lyn is his only friend of sorts... although even that might be stretching the term "friend" a little.
I hope he makes the right decision though...

rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:44 PM edit delete reply
Indeed, what is 'friend' :P

Today is a bit of a turning point in Briar's life -v-* fufu.

HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS COMIC HAD A DISCORD?!?! i have joined the discord of every comic i new had one!
rufiangel 14th Dec 2017, 12:45 PM edit delete reply
It's nice to have you on board, Lil' Bean :D

I suppose in part it's because I haven't actually broadcasted it beyond the initial setup XD; I could post a link to it on Tap?
Jojobean 14th Dec 2017, 8:16 PM edit delete reply
that would probably help
