Heya folks, I hope you're having a good start to your (spooky) weekend so far! Today's update went up a bit late - sorry about that, I had some part-time work to deal with. On that note, however, I'd like to take next week off and update again on the 13th November (Friday the 13th, incidentally o.o) so I can take some time to build a bit more breathing space comic-wise. I've been finishing off the strips literally an hour or two after my self-imposed deadline over the past couple of weeks, so I'd like the break. I've got some comments I need to catch up on responding to as well! Thank you for your understanding X3 <3

Stay safe everyone, and thanks very much for reading! See you in a couple of weeks~

Hey everyone - sorry to announce this, but the comic update will be delayed by a few days due to some unprecedented amounts of freelance work that came in this week. It's not a labour-intensive page, however, so I foresee it being done not too long after the usual Friday date. Thank you for your understanding! >3<**

Hopefully whatever didn't get noticed won't get Mike in trouble here. Everyone is already walking on eggshells as is.

Take however long you need, rufi. on't kill yourself to meet deadlines.
I'll admit with my comic's story arcs, I start out with a pretty good buffer, but somehow halfway into it, I suddenly find myself finishing pages an hour or so just before they get posted. LOL

(Thankfully almost done with my Halloween story arc here.)

Thanks MST3K, it certainly is something I'm trying to do more these days - recognise my realistic limitations, lol. I totally understand about the buffer running away like that, what gives XD

And good job with your H'ween story arc! You always do epic arcs during the holidays :)

Uh-ohh! I hope Mikey doesn't get caught with anything they would think of as 'contraband'! :O It would be too easy for him to get in trouble here.
* edit: posted at the same time XD
It's not that late; no worries! If you need time to catch up, again, no worries!
rufiangel 18th Nov 2020, 4:45 PM edit delete reply
Mikey certainly needs to be extra careful, but I think you guys will like what he found XD
Also, thank you megados for your kind understanding ;v;*

Oh, what did they miss? :o

@R/N: yeah, calling it an early day - day at work was good with lots of cake :D

Have fun with your little "Break" and get some rest, too <3
rufiangel 18th Nov 2020, 4:46 PM edit delete reply
It was tucked in the inner lining of the bag, someone was being very careful... ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed your happy cake day, mjkj! ^_^* I was mostly busy working rather than resting sadly :'D but it was okay, I earned moolah so I can't complain too much lol. I do need an actual break after this week though :'D

Pocket lint is a crafting material, right? Hair is a crafting material. The creative urge will not be stifled! I’ll show them! I’LL SHOW THEM ALL!!! MUAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!! ^_^

@Digi: <3 Hey you~
rufiangel 18th Nov 2020, 4:46 PM edit delete reply
@Gil: XD I've done that on CF more times than I can count, so no worries Gil. I'm also mildly terrified to think of what could be crafted out of pocket lint and hair XDD

Sucks that his options seem to be either "wander around the market with an openly hostile populace watching his every move" or "isolate himself in a little room while the rest of his friends wander off."
rufiangel 18th Nov 2020, 4:48 PM edit delete reply
You're right :') Mikey's definitely under pressure here. Let's hope he finds something interesting to do while he's friends are out...

Oof, right in the quarantine.
Little do they know that Micheal now has the time, means, and motivation to craft the doom of the whole Kijini species: a little red dot.
DLKmusic 1st Nov 2020, 5:45 AM edit delete reply
I am laughing way too hard at this!!!!

of course, the Kajini may be able to beat him at his own game if they can invent Baco-bisquits first!

Pfff! All they really need is a stick! XD
DLKmusic 13th Nov 2020, 10:34 AM edit delete reply
so that would mean... When Jinn threw the scroll to Nemi, he had to resist the urge to chase it?
megados 13th Nov 2020, 9:21 PM edit delete reply
That little instantaneous urge you get, and then suddenly, "Wait, no". XD
rufiangel 18th Nov 2020, 4:49 PM edit delete reply
@DLK & megados: The mental image of Jinn struggling against his instincts to chase after the scroll cracks me up XDD dangit guys!
rufiangel 18th Nov 2020, 4:48 PM edit delete reply
@Crestlinger: pfffffffffff XD to think, a tiny red dot could lead tot he fall of the entire nation...! ... up until the battery runs out, anyway.

I worry that everyone's gonna come back to their room all dark and covered in scribbles and ramblings of a man who has gone mad from 2 hours of boredom XDDD But I'm sure Mikey's found something much more fun than that lol

Take it easy, rufi <3 And happy spooky week!
rufiangel 18th Nov 2020, 4:50 PM edit delete reply
Mikey'd want to write on the walls if Starsky hadn't also taken all his writing utensils, dangit :'D

He's found... something. ;)

Also thanks very much Cici-muffin~ I hope you had a good spoopy week yourself~~

And then he pulls out a Nintendo Switch.

Wait a minute...!

rufiangel 18th Nov 2020, 4:52 PM edit delete reply
I mean, that'd be a great way to pass the time though XD
DLKmusic 1st Nov 2020, 5:47 AM edit delete reply
no brilliant commentary.... just a tiny voice in the back of my head screaming for attention. It's saying "DON'T DO IT MIKEY!!!!"
rufiangel 18th Nov 2020, 4:52 PM edit delete reply
Hmm, we'll see if you still don't want him to do anything once you see what it is ;)
mjkj 13th Nov 2020, 6:06 PM edit delete reply
@R/N2: *hugs Rufi*

You can make it!!! <3

...and thank you for keeping us updated
DLKmusic 14th Nov 2020, 3:22 AM edit delete reply
Right there with MJKJ, Rufi! Freelance work is a good thing!!!

Stay safe!
