Heya folks, happy Friday! :)

So this seems like a good pause point :P Next week, I will take a break to build some buffer. SF will be back 30th September! Thanks very much for your understanding. ;v;* And thank you very much for reading! >3<*

Hey everyone, sorry - the next update may be delayed by a couple of days, it's been taking a minute to get them right (I hope you'll understand why once you see them). Thank you for your kind patience! ;v;*

Sorry guys! I got kind of waylaid by trying to do October art prompts on top of comic-ing and uhm, it turns out I'm not very good at multi-tasking and I dropped the ball on SF ;;; OTL I'm so sorry. Please give me another few days. ;v;*

As for the prompts, though, if you are interested, the art I've done so far is below! They're based on several prompt lists, one of which is my own :3

Art dump below:

1. Rune + Magician

2. "Take a bow." + Enchanted Forest + Burned
image

3. Teacup + Cosmic Ocean
image

4. Sweater Weather
image

5. Whisper + Spring Dawn

Hey guys, sorry about the constant delay. I have realised I cannot do art prompts and SF at the same time :'D It's hard! But to be honest, I've really been enjoying doing prompts this month so far. It's been fun getting out of my usual SF routine and doing weird, fun and silly things.

Thinking of it as something I'm doing to ensure the long-term health of my creativity (lol), I'd like to put SF on pause this October and kick it back up again in November. I apologise for not seeing this coming in advance. >.<

I know not everyone is here for art prompts, but I thought I'd go ahead and share the last week's worth of them here:

6. Crossroads
image

7. Halo
image

8. Cocktail (Can you guess which one is depicted below? :P)
image

9. "Ora ora ora ora!"
image

10. Whiskers + Rainbow Swamp
image

11. Creep
image

12. Beautiful Monster + Sword & Jewel + Extra Limbs
image
13. Veins
image

Thank you for your understanding, and sorry again for my total goober-ness about the update schedule ;v;* (Sorry Nemi, hang in there!)

Hoo Boy, what a place for a cliffhanger. You are truly evil, Rufi! (J/K) :D

So, yeah. She WAS convicted of Stupidity.

I honestly think the sentence won't be that severe. I have no idea what a Lifetime Tag is (I am guessing that would make her unemployable, ban her from the Guilds, etc), and the fine would be severe (how is she going to pay back her debt if she's unemployable?) but I just don't see that happening.

Nemi is being given her ONE warning. Yes, the sentence should be strict enough to teach her a lesson, but it seems as if the extenuating circumstances are overriding the "standard" punishments. Maybe a Time-Limit Tag and a fine stiff enough to be serious, but nowhere near ruinous...

I"m guessing maybe banishment. Cast her out and she can never return, see her family etc.

Exile? C'mooooon exile. Anything to get her away from this courtroom as fast as possible.

Guys, it's a STORY. Obviously, as a licensed adventurer, she is going to be sentenced to track down the cache of weapons that they are all looking for and no one has found yet. ^_^ Especially since this generation's Stiles owes her, big-time.

Those prompt pieces are gorgeous. I may have said "oh, wow" at a few of them while scrolling through.

Glad you could take a break and enjoy the change of pace for a bit!

She is on Discord at times. Basically she's OK, but it's not my story to tell, so I'll leave it at that. :)
Evervigilant 5th Dec 2022, 8:04 AM edit delete reply
Fair enough and thanks. At least I know she's ok more or less.
