Happy Friday everyone!!! <3 X3 Sorry for the long lull in updates, and thank you for your incredible patience.

So fun fact: I rewrote quite a lot of this flashback because I was way too ambitious in the original script. I had a whole fantasy-drug abuse plot line and more exposition on the kind of shady place Deca (the area of Fel that Nemi and her siblings grew up in) is, but it turned this chapter's flashback into something massive! While tidying things up, I saw that it didn't really need to be there, so I cut it out entirely. However, Fini was to have a more involved role, and his addiction would have been what the siblings exploited to create the diversion required. Fini's more in-depth story provides material for a side story, perhaps...

Anyway, I hope you guys are having a much better start to your weekend than poor Fini here has. See you guys next week with the next update!

Thank you! :D It might be fun to do Fini's story one day, for reals :O But I can imagine some other side story content that would win precedent XD;

I almost expect to be hearing Metal Gear Solid music playing as everyone sneaks around. XD

Though the last panel seems to suggest bad things.

Feel free to play it in the background while reading this page XD

And whatever gave you that idea? ;P

I thought it was either a bag of catnip, or some freshly-baked cookies.

And it figures a feline race would literally use a Cat's Cradle for communication...

It could be catnip, katonipu, freshly-baked cookies or a lot of goldra! Who knows? ;D It's a mystery bag!

And XD tee hee

*edited my comment because somebody else already noted the cat's cradle.*

I suppose the reason the kids call him "Silly Fini" might be because he acts...differently when he's high. The real question is, how much do the kids understand what's going on? I would think they must be aware that he's a junkie if they were originally going to exploit that fact to distract him, but maybe they're too young to realize the gravity of the situation so they don't consider it any more of a big deal than any of the other less-than-ideal aspects of their surroundings.

I kind of love that you go the extra mile to rewrite your comments to say something different, that is so awesome of you XD though it is also okay to reiterate a point others have noticed LOL

And it makes me happy to see how much you've picked up based on that tidbit :D heeeeee <3 it is the latter point you made, as these kids grew up in Deca and don't have much exposure outside of it. Nemi's the most worldly!

Thank you!! :D

And yeee, I have all these little ideas germinating for side-story content but I need to definitely try to put more energy into actually getting main content out first XD one day!

Uh oh. That last panel doesn't look like "So far, so good" to me. =O

my thoughts pretty much exactly! although a "this can't be good" came as an afterthought.

@DLK: At least they had one page of things going smoothly! :'D
