Heya folks, happy Friday!

I mentioned last week that things haven't been super stellar. I know I'll be okay, but to be honest, I'm in an emotional fug so I barely chipped away at SF over the last week. The strip going up today is the last in my buffer.

I do, however, have half the next page done already, and it's a fairly decent pausing point, so I am thinking about completing it for next week and just taking a week off from updating SF to catch up on buffer and get my head back in the comic-ing space.

I really want to finish Chapter 9 this year (seriously) but I know if I don't take a break now it'll probably trip me up more majorly later on. Sorry to have to do this.

Thanks so much for reading still!! ;v;* I hope you enjoyed today's update. See you guys next week~

I'm sorry to hear things aren't working out for you. From here, all I can really do is send well-wishes, good vibes, and offer a hug. Here's hoping for better times!

Wow! She actually made him swear! I wonder what her question will be.

I hope your break will help your well-being.

Those are such wonderful things to send, so thank you megados! ;v;* I really appreciate it. I too hope the break will help.

As for her question...

"Do you like me?
□ Yes
□ No"

Well, I know how *I* would answer that . . . :D

Take whatever time you time, rufi. I think at some point in life, we all have that "emotional fug". Relax, have some tea...take a trip whatever to help out here.

Anyway, with today's page... Hopefully, whatever Nemi is about to ask here isn't something to already prove his swearing to the Father isn't real. She has enough things to hate Danrir for.

Thanks MST3K. It's been kind of difficult to go on any trip with the resurgence of cases here as of late but I do hope it'll clear up in time. :)

We'll see what Nemi's question is very soon~!

Thank you for the update. Emotions can be difficult things to handle. I really hope that things go well for you and you feel better. As always, please take whatever time you need to do the things you need to do.

Thank you for reading, Gil! >3<* Emotions are certainly a bugger to get a handle on. Hopefully I won't have to take too long to get things sorted. But thank you so much for your kind words ;v;*

Hope your emotional fug is shortlived, but I totally get how that goes. Great page, as always!
rufiangel 31st Mar 2022, 6:07 PM edit delete reply
Thank you Ruxin! ;v;*

I hope it's shortlived, too. Or at least has less reason to live longer, lol.

I won't get all up in your business, but I've been going through some emotional crap myself. Maybe it's apples to oranges, I don't know, but I get it. Hoping it's transient.

It's really nice to see them talk so openly like this. Despite her misgivings, I suspect his kindness toward the kids did a lot to get her to the point where she'd even discuss this.
rufiangel 31st Mar 2022, 6:08 PM edit delete reply
^-^* It definitely helped that he waited a bit before he tried talking to her properly~

Emotional fugs are rough. Do take the time you need, rufi <3<3<3

That question Nemi has is a bit intriguing... but I am glad for them opening up a bit more in this quiet moment together.
rufiangel 31st Mar 2022, 6:09 PM edit delete reply
Because I'm clearly not saying it enough, HAPPY BIRFDAY CICI-MUFFIN <3 XD

And thank you so kindly <3 <3 <3 You are always too kind Cici ;v;*

We'll see Nemi's question soon enough~ :3

At the risk of repeating myself or telling you what you already know: It really does help if you learn to acknowledge all the issues, one by one, that're running around inside your head. Then you can pick one and work on it with a clear head. I learned the trick from "The Power of Now" by Tolle, but there are other teachers if you prefer. It's still hard work though. Don't forget to take breaks and pace yourself, even while dealing with emotional messes inside your head.

We heard you like breaks, etc.

Thank you A. Moose for your kind words and advice. You're right that it's important to take it a step at a time. I'll do what I can during this break and hopefully get some good breakthrough. :3 Thanks very much again for taking the time to share your thoughts!

Now ain't that just too relatable... it's basically human history for as long as you care to read.

Guess Nemi is just getting a taste of the bigger world here.
rufiangel 31st Mar 2022, 6:12 PM edit delete reply
It's a big big world for a little little kijini. XD;;;

Nemi is quite thorough here...

...wonder what her question is...

@R/N: *hugs* I hope you will be fine - and yeah, please take all the breaks you need - a burnt out Rufi is not a good Rufi *hugs*

I am trying hard not to burn out lately. ;v; This whole pandemic doesn't really help, it creates way too many uncertainties. Thank you for your kind encouragement. ;v;*

You are welcome *hugs*
