And with that, Chapter 8 is finally a wrap! >3<*)/

Thanks everyone so much for sticking with this never-ending chapter all this while! XD; This has been quite an arduous chapter to complete so let me just say, I'm very, very glad it's done and over with. -v-)7

There are many things I'd like to get done now that this chapter is completed, but in the meantime, I'd like you guys to know that I will be taking a break. I'd like to tentatively gauge the break will take place until the end of this year and the next chapter will start 2019 January, but that doesn't mean there won't be any updates until then! Please feel free to suggest any content you'd like to see, such as the SF high school omake continued, or more Q&A, or another canon side-story, etc. :)

Again, thank you so much for reading, and I will absolutely be back with more updates soon in terms of scheduling and what to expect.

Will update again soon with more info! :D Thank you for reading SF <3

*gasp* She saved a Danririn??? 8-o

I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you!

Just when you think you know someone. Tsk, tsk, tsk...

I know, right? -v- hehehe, I bet you guys all thought you knew Nemi... fu, fu, fu. ;)

Nemi SAVED a Danririn! She's a good muffin!!! ... Though, from the sounds of it, that was not a good move on Nemi's part, if she really did do it. Yikes indeed, like the Star Kijin said :<

It wouldn't happen to be Stiles himself that she supposedly saved, would it? Because that'd be real interesting... I have so much speculation dangit XD I need like a whole day of actual research on this hahaha

Wonderful work on just all the things, rufi <3 Do have a nice break, and can't wait for January~ (P.S. I'd really like to see more of the high school omake, only because I suddenly remembered the Ren gym thing XD But I shall relent to anything you and the other peeps desire)
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:16 PM edit delete reply
Nemi may have 'saved' a danririn, she also may not have XD the facts will come to light though... eventually ;)

Thank you the well wishes and kindness, Cici-muffin <3 ;v;* you are the best muffin! (I did actually think about more high school omake proper, but... I'm not feeling it right now >.< but thank you for the reminder of the Ren gym thing XD lolol)

Wow, how did Nemi jump up there with bound hands? :o

Oh, Nemi is a hero? saving an enemy? :o

...poor Nemi though *hugs her* I hope it will work out well for her...

That look in the last panel... :o least she does not need to climb all those steps...

@author Notes: Nooooo, the chapter is done... :o :o :o

Thank you for the great chapter and all your effort texting, drawing and authoring... =D *hugs Rufi*

Enjoy your break, Rufi <3
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:17 PM edit delete reply
Nemi's capable of jumping with her hands bound, no worries XD (though perhaps she's not very good at it) As for whether she's a 'hero' in this, remains to be seen... but yes, we will see XD

Thank you always for your kind words Mjkj, your support is amazing and means a lot!! >w<*

So she's been arrested and is to go on trail over saving a Danririn!? Geez.

Guess her people are really are against ANY kind of association with them. O_o

Sounds more like they want to use her as an example/stooge/fallgirl for what you get for helping the 'enemy'.

And the chapter is over!? Aw.

Well, whatever you feel like doing until the next chapter is fine by me, rufi.
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:18 PM edit delete reply
The context will be important in the inquiry, I'll say ;) though you may not be wrong at all!

Thanks as always for your kind support, MST3K! :D

I don't know in terms of numerical stats, but in terms of teamwork, and camaraderie, I'd say they have leveled up a lot!
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:20 PM edit delete reply
@Japster: Hmmm, I'd have to say the one who made the most notable leap in level would be Cain, given he was the lowest to start with. Everyone has leveled up to some degree, however :) as megados nicely put it below, there is a kind of growth and bonding that can't be measured in numerical value!

(I also second mercy XD)

Todays breaking news story
Mass rioting has broken out today through the entire kijin nation after word got out that local super idol Nemi has been arrested on bogus charges. Mass hysteria, houses of authorities being burned, stores looted, so much confusion everywhere all over this. The people are calling for whoever invented these blatantly stupid charges against everyone's beloved Nemi to be drawn and quartered and then let nemi go to live a long full adorable life. Normally these sorts of things wouldn't have been too difficult for the local authorities to handle but some of them have even joined the violent protesters and have helped them gain access to restricted areas around the nation and light them on fire. The original instigator of this whole mess has sent in an exclusive statement to our news station and was quoted as saying "Kupo!" We dont know what that means but we support you Mr.Kupo! Get our nemi back. We would normally take a statement and listen to the other side of the story but we dont care! Burn everything! ... Have a great day everyone!

mercy, just to let you know this post cracked me up so hard XD gosh dangit! I'd better go into hiding whenever the next chapter begins posting XDD
megados 4th Oct 2018, 8:31 PM edit delete reply
So Nemi's charges are basically 'aid and comfort to the enemy'? No good deed goes unpunished I guess. Hopefully, it'll get sorted out in her favor one way or other.

Enjoy your break, Rufi! I'm sure the content will be first rate, and I'm looking forward to January!
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:24 PM edit delete reply
It'll become clearer, given context, why Nemi is being charged at all ;3 fufu~

And thank you very much megados! I do apologise at how extended the break has become, but do be sure I am trying to make the most of it! Your support is always appreciated ;v;*)/

Okay, a few suggestions.

You mention highschool omake, but I only found the food one. Did I overlook it? Maybe the website to point to it somewhere? I don't typically look at other places than this website for all things serpamia flare.

Looking around reminded me: You might post a bigger version of the marketplace-with-cameos. I found the one I get to see hard to decipher. Or you could do a group portrait.

Is a write-up about the world guild (and maybe other guild-related stuff) something you'd care to do?

Another idea but that's really fodder for a fan with too much time on their hands is gathering all the secondary and tertiary and so on characters with mugshot and name, possibly first appearance. Likewise, round up all the known spells, seals, wards, classes, summons, critters, etc. All things for a fanwiki.

And that's all with the ideas from me for now.
mjkj 5th Oct 2018, 5:15 PM edit delete reply
I guess you could check out the FridayFlare Tumblr link on top of the page...

...or was it posted in the forums??? =S
CiciEnixa 6th Oct 2018, 12:53 AM edit delete reply
I found the High School Omake, it's among the pages! Though I was a bit surprised, I thought it was way before Jem Citadel.

@Cici: I know the feeling, time is just way too fast XD
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:29 PM edit delete reply
@A. Moose: Cici linked the high school japery in response, as I'm sure you've seen - sorry about not being clear about it in the A/N! XD; It's been a while, I know.

Hmm, the marketplace-with-cameos is sadly rather outdated, though if you are curious I can certainly post a larger version of that particular panel. :) It did get sized down quite a lot XD;

Mjkj linked FridayFlare below - if you'd like to see some extra info on the World Guild and other governing parties in Archaiea, there's a write-up or two I've done in the past that's among the posts there, just FYI :D

I would absolutely love to be able to round up those things you've mentioned - as for the character list, you can find something like it here under the 'About' section. For the others, I just need a lot more time and a good ol' fashioned website update to do it!

Thanks for taking the time to share your ideas, and for your support - I sincerely appreciate it <3 I will definitely look into your suggestions over time! :D

Take your time rufi, we will be here when you get back. Just remember, write the story, outline the first dozen or so comics, and get the first 3 fully ready to post before posting any so you have a buffer to work with. i don't care if it takes you a month or 2 to do all that, we just want you healthy and happy.
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:33 PM edit delete reply
dawndemonica, you are lovely ;v;** thank you so much for your kind words and support always! Your comments always make me smile X3

Your advice is very good and I shall take it to heart >3<*)7 it's just a matter of me finding my, er, 'mojo' so to speak. I'll do my best! ;v;**)/

SF high school? Well I am enjoying My Hero Academia on Adult Swim, so what quirks would our heroes have and how would they fit in class?

Cannon side-story? What's Madou been up to, if it's not wandering around chasing butterflies? Oh yeah, what have Seia and Ophelia run into?
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:35 PM edit delete reply
Oh boy, I've only just read a few chapters of My Hero Academia as a manga... and it's fun stuff XD Nemi for sure would be super speedy, Mikey perhaps super buff, Kylie with ice powers... and Cain with a good ol' heal? Hmm, is that a possible quirk? XD;

In regards to the canon side-stories, I can for sure say that those specific characters you've asked about will be addressed almost from the get go at the start of the next chapter. I hope you don't mind the wait! >v<*)/

Thank you for your suggestions, and for your support! <3

The Accidental Ninja
A Danririn weaponsmith...? That can't be a coincidence, methinks...

AHMIGASH she saved a Danririn? Jinn pal, you better treat Nemi better after this, you hear me?
I am very concerned for Nemi D:

re: A/N: ....yanno what I've just realized? That around the beginning of this chapter is when I discovered this comic xDD Feels like so long ago now, wowww xD

I hope all of your stuff is going well for you! (you know you can rant away at me if you need to xD)
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:38 PM edit delete reply
Heh heh heh ;D

We'll see who gets to take the reins from the next chapter in terms of Mikey's body, but I'm sure you won't complain if Mikey gets some screentime XD (it's been too long ;v;*)

Also holy smokes! That feels like yesterday, yet I also feel like you've been around forever so that makes sense too XD daaang! Thanks for sticking it out this long so far <3 ;v;*

I will take you up on that rant coupon some day, just you wait XD in the meantime, please just know that I'm grateful you're still around! Hope you had a happy new year, dear X3

Bonus pages you say? The modern high school AU of course!

Where is our substitute teacher when we need him?

I'm sorry xwindows that I didn't go for more high school AU this time around, although it was definitely on my mind! I just couldn't quite 'feel' it this time... but for sure there's always next time. :) I'm glad you remember and enjoyed it though <3

Thanks for your support! ;v;*)9

The season finale of the year is coming fast and Rufi hasn't post SF high school or any other bonus. I'm sad, where's my christmas present? why have you forsaken us? *goes cry in the dark*

I am less worried for bonus content and am hopeful of regular content.
rufiangel 10th Jan 2019, 5:43 PM edit delete reply
@Just_IDD: For sure, regular content is always on my mind! >_< the next chapter will take some considerable time to plan out. Definitely need to do Nemi justice or else people will probably mob me XD (no pun intended)

@Wido: Oh geez, please come out from the dark XD;;; *tugs and pulls* I'm so sorry!! I know I'm kind of rusty and cobwebby myself -v-;;

It's been pretty hectic for me IRL lately and it's made it hard for me to personally find the time and energy to work on SF, I'm very sorry about that. However, I do appreciate you dropping a note here to let me know you're still checking in, and that you care! ;v;* I'm sorry to have disappointed with nothing much to show over the last couple of months, that was definitely not my intention. Please accept my sincere apologies m(_ _)m
