Woot happy Monday folks! Thanks for your patience, I know it's been a long slog through this part of the chapter and I appreciate you guys hanging in there. :)

I've given it some thought because there's a lot going on IRL at the moment for me (mostly because I've been away for so long, so there's a bunch to catch up on) and I think it would be best if I resorted to updating once a week, just for the next couple of weeks. (One of those updates will be a little longer than usual, which will hopefully make up for the pauses!) Mid-March I will resume twice-a-week updates, when I know I'll be more comfortably back into the routine of things and my ability to draw returns to normal speeds -v-;; (at the moment it's like molasses lulz) Thank you sincerely for your patience with me during this time - we're close to wrapping up this chapter!

With any luck I'll be able to catch up with comments and everything once I catch up with the rest of life. -v-)7

Thanks everyone for reading! I'll update again next Monday. :)

I should hope everyone got significant EXP out of that one XD

And wait, Red? O_O Is this a BiM crossover event?? lol

No celebration? Anyone?

Well I know Rufi must be celebrating to be done with this long battle! It's been awesome as a reader but I'm sure for you it was long and tough. Good work!

And I think Archer's got the BEST idea on this :D
Wido 26th Feb 2018, 8:40 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, I want to see the post-boss party! Nemi and Michael dancing, Kylie and Kina doing a "all you can eat pie" contest. You can even brin Madou back with one of those "I've been here all the time, did ya miss me" jokes
rufiangel 2nd Mar 2018, 5:36 PM edit delete reply
@Wido: That sounds super cute XD d'aww <3 and darn, Madou is still being summoned! lol XD
rufiangel 2nd Mar 2018, 5:35 PM edit delete reply
We'll see about the celebrating~ XD but I'm certainly happy to get over the battle hump! Now it's a matter of wrapping some loose ends up... ;) but thank you so so much for all your hugely encouraging support Proxy! <3

And hehe, Archer's happy you agree on that one XD <3

Yay new page!

I get the feeling Briar will be over joyed to learn Lyn is Knight K’s little bro.

...where is Lyn anyway...

...or Madou? You missed your grand entrance to save the city Madou!
rufiangel 2nd Mar 2018, 5:37 PM edit delete reply
Thanks Headgamer :D

Don't worry, Lyn's not too far ;)

Madou, on the other hand... lolol XD we'll see in time!
Alterna 27th Feb 2018, 3:38 AM edit delete reply
we're close now! Allllllmost the reveal.
Also I'm really excited for when we get to find out about Nemi's thing, which story wise I hope will be after this part.
I wonder how they'll handle this kid who summoned the beast creature?
rufiangel 2nd Mar 2018, 5:39 PM edit delete reply
Thank you Alterna, I'm glad you're still reading <3 :D

I'm also glad you're looking forward to what might be coming next! I think I've dropped enough hints XD

They're discussing it on this page, but as to what they'll do, we'll find out probably a bit later ;) heh.

Well done, everyone! Way to pull it together! Cue Victory music!

I suspect Briar thinks that's all there is to it. Hmmm. . .

And don't worry, Briar is about to be edumacated XD

XD Not on purpose, honestly! lol. Hopefully the payoff won't be lacking -v-*)/

Bye Fuzzy Bby, you will (not) be missed (definitely by rufi XD) But most of all, yaaaay, you did it, rufi, and it was awesome! *squish hugs* You were in just as much a battle as everyone else with this behemoth. Take good care of yourself, okay? <3

... I hope Kylie finds out now about Lyn, it's been too long XDDD
rufiangel 5th Mar 2018, 3:16 PM edit delete reply
;v;* Thank you muffin, I super appreciate your kind and encouraging words <3 *hugs* it's impossible without the support of loving friends, so thankyew thankyew <333

We'll get there in a moment or two, don't worry ;D (all moments being relative to like in-comic universe time, IRL uh please listen to this 10 hours of elevator music while I furiously work on it XDD)

Whew, glorious victory! :)
Time to go to a bar and celebrate~
rufiangel 5th Mar 2018, 3:34 PM edit delete reply
Certainly good food and drink is one of the best ways to celebrate a hard-won battle <3 :D

Now, will I actually let them have that breather? ;) hmm...

rufiangel 5th Mar 2018, 3:45 PM edit delete reply
