Guys, it's been so long, there are all kinds of new changes to ComicFury, and it took me a minute to even remember how to do this thing, LOL. But hey, welcome back everyone to a new chapter of Serpamia Flare, Chapter Nine! This is one of those chapters we jump right into things before the chapter cover, there'll be one a little later on ^-^*)/

SF will update on a weekly basis on Fridays for the time being. :)

I've temporarily taken down some links I feel need some updates (I still have to upload some chapter recaps soon!) but I did update the Gallery with a couple of lovely gifts:


MST3K of PRITN fame very kindly sent this adorable Santa Cain piece for Christmas X3 thank you so much MST3K <3

Princess Lom also gifted this wonderful piece of fanart:


Isn't it absolutely adorable? ;v;* Thank you so much!!

And thank you to all of your lovely readers, for your patience and support! See you next week~ o/

Old is certainly relative, I don't want to know what adjectives kids these days would use on me XD

And thank you!! I'm so grateful for your support ;v;*)/

And yes SF is super blessed with these lovely fanarts <333 ;v;**

Why do I get the feeling that Nero has only been in even more trouble while Nemi was journeying with everyone else? I mean, what's the worst he could...

Oh, dear no, did he... ask some middle aged warrior gal her age and then snidely comment that she looks older? :( *Yikes!*

You know Robert, I would not put it past him... he is a precocious little kit XD;;; definitely the type to learn the hard way... and maybe even then make the same mistakes a couple more times, just because! :P

Well science tells us to repeat the experiment to see if we get the same results! ;)

Wait what, flashback or even more leeway? I guess we'll find out soon enough. No idea about comicfury; as a techie I like the situation where I can drop a file in place and run "make" and it'll automatically do everything needed, including things like pushing out to the webserver anything that needs updating. Maybe dropping a comic on an icon can be made to trigger an upload, or something? I don't know about graphical things, I type arcane commands into white-on-black text windows.

Regarding the comments on the previous page, the "mappers" and "packers" terminology is useful and having read about it well worth it, but it's those programmer's stone guys' older thinking. The new keyword is "juxtapositional thinking". A state of mind where cathedral building happens. May have to dig a bit to get to the part where they talk about that.

Anyway, glad to see you're drawing again. That is already good news. For whatever else, a Rufi that doesn't draw isn't a complete Rufi.
rufiangel 13th Mar 2020, 2:36 PM edit delete reply
I can definitely go ahead and say it's a flashback XD mostly, I try to denote flashbacks by using a black background around the panels or using a sepia tint in the panel itself, though understandably it may not be immediately recognisable.

CF has updated its upload page in good ways, so it's just a matter of me getting used to it, no worries :3

Thanks for the further clarification on the programmer's stone stuff btw :) I'll probs have to read a bit further in~

And thank you also very much for your kind words and support ;v;*)/

Welcome back!!

Nemi's siblings are so cute!

Great fanarts too! Double treat!

Great to see you and SF back in action, Rufi!

Thank you! :D I'm glad you think so <3 they're fun!

Also yesh <3 SF has been blessed with fanarts even during the break ;v;* thanks be to the very lovely artists <3

Thanks for your kind words and support! >3<)/

Welcome back, rufi! *glomps you* XD

And you're welcome on the Christmas fanart. :3

Looks like Nemi and family have quite the family tradition of taking money from one another.
rufiangel 13th Mar 2020, 2:41 PM edit delete reply
Thank you MST3K!! >3<*)/ It was very kind of you to remember SF even amid the long hiatus ;v;*

Have to admit that's one family tradition I'm glad I don't have to deal with :'D

Welcome Back!!!

And with a long awaited flash back to learn more about Nemi. Unsurprisingly she’s from a family of little thieves. XD Maybe we’ll learn how she got in to trouble.

But again welcome back. ^_^

O, um. I’m guest. Darn Twitter browser. XD
rufiangel 13th Mar 2020, 2:45 PM edit delete reply
Ah!! XD No worries lolol. Thank you Headgamer!! ;v;** Thank you very kindly for your support~~~

No worries, this chapter will go very much into how she got to where she is now ^_^)/ Nero definitely takes after Nemi quite a bit... ;P

Warms me right up to see a SF update, Rufiii! <3333
Nemi and and her siblings are so cute! But I need to go refresh myself on the story x"D
rufiangel 13th Mar 2020, 2:49 PM edit delete reply
Aww Serpyyy! ;v;* It warms me right up to see a comment from you <3 lol <33

Also I suspect I've dropped the ball on giving people a proper refresher to this series XD;;; so no worries there, lol. I'll try to drop all the references necessary with every update so readers don't have to go scouring the archives to remember who the heck that was or what the heck is going on, at least!!

It's very good to hear from you Serpy <3 thank you for your support ;v;*)/
CiciEnixa 7th Mar 2020, 7:53 AM edit delete reply
Huzzahs for returns! <3 (and yeah, even though I saw the updates on the new things on CF, I still keep getting thrown off, too XD There's just so much)

They're so adorable hahaha, especially Niko's worried little face. Why is Nero stealing from his own bro? Did their Mama teach them to steal from each other in addition from their dad oh my gosh XDDD

That aside, living conditions for the Nemi family don't seem to be... stellar. But I spy what might be a Hornet, so she's probably protecting them. From other thieves. Not each other XD
rufiangel 13th Mar 2020, 2:52 PM edit delete reply
Cici-muffinnnn <33 thank you for your warm welcome!! ;v;* (I'm glad it's not just me re: CF updates lolol)

Niko is a chronic worrier XD and Nero is... Nero. A naughty boy XD and good memory!! he may have also been rather influenced by Mama's ways, lolol :'D (as Nemi has been too!)

Also very good eye XD it is a tiny Hornet cameo~ everyone's looking forward to Silksong :D hehehe~ yes, she will protecc (though them petty sibling squabbles she will stay out of lolol)

welcome back, yeay update!!!! I would glomp you, but I'm old and fat and I don't want to cause bodily harm!!!!

Love the whole litter! Seems like charisma is a family trait here. but something is confusing me... you said you forgot how to draw? this looks like you picked up right where you left off... amazing!!!!
rufiangel 13th Mar 2020, 2:54 PM edit delete reply
Pfft, don't be silly DLK~ XD thank you so much for your kind support!! ;v;*)/

There's still one more sibling yet to be seen, I suspect people will like that one too though XD (for obvious reasons once they appear, I promise lol)

And thank you also for your kind words re: ze drawing, I appreciate it - I'm glad to know it seems pretty much like it always has been. I hope to get my drawing speed back up to what it used to be too~

Thank you Wido!! My life is, well... rife with uncertainty XD but that's not quite under my control, so I have to learn to be patient in that regard. I can at least focus on SF updates though in the meantime! :3

The Accidental Ninja
welcome back ^^
and those are some nice fanarts you got! :D

(...I was gonna ask, what does Nemi's family do when it rains? ....then I remembered that it doesn't rain there xD)
rufiangel 13th Mar 2020, 2:57 PM edit delete reply
The EEEEE has finally seen sweEEEet release! XD Thank you Kat always for your very kind support <333

And yesh, I am so grateful for the kind readers who continually bless SF with their talents ;v;**

(You are correct! XD Archaiea has pretty temperate weather so roofless homes aren't too crazy to have, though of course if you prefer to keep the dust out, roofs help in that regard :'D)

How am I just realizing you're back. haha I'm so glad to see you up and writing again! I've missed this story and I'm happy that it's back up again! Can't wait to jump back into it! I may have to go back and reread it though since it's been a while. lol
Thanks for the update!!!
