Heya folks, happy Friday! Another Friday, another update :D

CiciEnixa, of From Dust to Ruination fame (please go read it if you don't already), sent me this amazing fanart very swiftly after the update last Friday went up, and it cracked me up XD


It was actually so close to what happens in the actual comic I couldn't help giggling like a madwoman after I saw it XD Thank you for the perfection that is this piece, Cici-muffin <333

Have you guys been watching shows or listening to podcasts lately? I've been catching up on the second campaign of Critical Role recently and getting a real kick out of the content - highly recommended if you like DnD and nerdy voice actors, lol. My pal Mylandah has a gaming Let's Play channel, Game with Myl, which has hours upon hours of quality content across a fairly broad spectrum of games - she has a very pleasant, chill voice to listen to :D These are what I've been primarily watching on the side while I work on comic stuff, lol. Please feel free to toss your own recommendations out if you have any :D

And with that, I hope everyone is staying safe, healthy and sane during these crazy times. Thanks so much for reading, and see you next week with the next update!

Jaguar was so sure he'd successfully pulled off a dashing rescue, you can't blame him for being surprised XD

And Cici-muffin's fanart is so good isn't it? <333

why, thank you mercy <3 XD I'm not sure Jaguar agrees, but who cares about what he thinks amirite
CiciEnixa 15th May 2020, 6:18 PM edit delete reply
Oh this is so much better hahaha <3 Jaguar's so sure he did awesome back there (well he did, managing to hit all those monsters and have them go after Seia instead of himself), only to get bonked by Ophelia XDDD (P.S. Jaguar, calling a lady incompetent is a no-no XD)

I'm sure this will be an inconvenience to Seia, but what's Ophelia gonna do about it now?

...and I guess same goes for calling her butt big, too... =P

@mjkj: It's a good rule of thumb mjkj for harmonious coexistence with others

I dunno, Ophelia certainly reacted much faster in your version, which I think she'd prefer! XD I did try to give her a windswept impression on the page but she already has such fluffy hair it's hard to tell :')

She has a funny way of showing her gratitude. ;-)
rufiangel 5th Jun 2020, 4:38 PM edit delete reply
Wait till you see how she shows her displeasure! :P

Well crud. Seia is gonna have some work to do. I don't think there's time to restore the manubar. :(

Bonk! LOL

Jaguar thinks it's a rescue, Ophelia, not so much?
rufiangel 5th Jun 2020, 4:41 PM edit delete reply
There definitely wasn't time to restore the manubar, but that's okay :D

And yes, they both saw this from very different perspectives XD but I think Jaguar had good reason to think the way he did :'D

Well that certainly wasn't the reaction Jaguar was expecting, now, was it?

Also, it appears that Seia's got his work cut out for him here.
rufiangel 5th Jun 2020, 4:42 PM edit delete reply
Jaguar probably didn't really think she'd grovel at his feet in gratitude... maybe a reluctant look of thanks? XD;

Meanwhile, Seia definitely got a bit of a late-night workout!

Bonk! XD
That fanart is fantastic, too xD

GAH, I seem to have fallen off the face of the earth for the past month or so. Sorry for the lack of commenting. I'm back, and very excited for what happens next here! :D (Seia what are you gonna doooo? :/)
Hope you're staying healthy ^^
rufiangel 5th Jun 2020, 4:45 PM edit delete reply
Isn't it just? <3 ;v;* (thanks @Cici-muffin again <3)

I'm glad to see you back <3 no need to apologise at all! @-@ And I am glad to know you're engaged with the story <3

I do hope everyone is staying healthy and safe ;v;**

Sheesh. Not only does he grab her without her being able to explain anything, but to outright insult her afterwards.

A bonk on the head is just the least of what he deserves here.

Jaguar certainly won't be writing any Relationship 101 guides XD

Though dashing and provoking does make for a good getaway going to laugh when he realizes Seia still has her disc and that there More of those beasties out there. Easy prey for Seia though, three daggers three eyes, and only If he doesn't straight ice the lot and have done with them.
rufiangel 5th Jun 2020, 4:47 PM edit delete reply
Since I am responding in retrospect I guess I can say this now - you are very astute re: Ophelia's disc! It's why Seia here notes the rogue got him really good, because he knew already at this point he'd been robbed of the disc in a very brief moment. *shakes fist at Jaguar* But Seia did indeed clear the whole lot without much effort. :D

Jags, even if you were otherwise going to be her hero, insulting her and calling out her posterior size as large is not going to end well. You might as well ask to be slapped into next week.

*nods gravely along with you* Jaguar tends to take unnecessary risks >->a
DLKmusic 18th May 2020, 5:34 AM edit delete reply
Yup, Cici definitely called it on this one!

In a different vein, I gotta admit I'm pretty impressed with what Jaguar pulled off here, I guess I may have underestimated him.
rufiangel 5th Jun 2020, 4:52 PM edit delete reply
She sure did!

And I think Jaguar surprised some readers for sure XD; he's a fairly accomplished rogue but you'll notice he's less about face-to-face confrontations and more about the sneaky-sneaky-run-away plans XD

That fanart is soooooo on spot!
rufiangel 5th Jun 2020, 4:52 PM edit delete reply
I thought so too Wido, it's like Cici read my script beforehand XD
