Hey folks, I hope your Friday is going swell so far~ I have a few things this A/N round to say, so please do read on and check the TL;DR at the end if you're feeling lazy XD

So finally, Kylie and Cain appear after so dang long. I swear it's an ordeal having to remember how to draw Cain again :P His dang coat!

What Lyn doesn't know, and what Kylie is sweating bullets about, and what Cain and Mikey also know but aren't saying out loud - just in case readers need a refresher, this is all alluding to the fact that Kylie had a Lethiace Control Failure in Halehurst. There's, uh, a lot to unpack there, so you can probably expect she won't be telling Lyn any time too soon.

In case readers also need a reminder on Nemi's whereabouts, Nemi's currently in Caelune for some crazy charge. Mikey is unaware of what happened as Jinn!Mikey was the one in control at the time, and Mikey isn't always aware of what's happening when he's not the one holding the reins. (Same goes vice versa with Jinn, of course.)

Now, time to showcase a wonderful wonderful piece of fanart that the talented sister of Cici-muffin, Miss Zoe (also known as Zoe-cupcake but only to me), sent my way not long ago ;v;* <3 Calling it a gift basket, I opened it up and found these little scamps looking up at me:


And then I hugged the heck out of all of them, plus Zoe-cupcake and Cici-muffin, 'cause they are all so so adorable and precious and thank you so much!! ;v;** <333 It did much to lift my recently tuckered-out spirits, and I am so grateful and blessed. Thank you so much <333

Speaking of being tuckered out, I have an announcement to make that is less than great but a bit necessary. I hope the sense of foreboding isn't too awful ^_^; But I'll be taking a break from posting further updates this July and will begin posting again in the first week of August. From a practical standpoint, I'm currently working a temp job most days of the week, but it'll finish by the end of July and I'll be able to have more time to work on comic things in August. But there's also the fact I just have a lot going on, not all of it is bad per se - it's just a lot, and I've lost my comic buffer so I need to build it back up. I've been in a tired and sad state for some time as well, and I need to sort of take some time to get a grip again.

Thank you all for reading SF and for being so patient, truly - I know it's been a little bit hiccuppy lately with the updates, but we'll get through this rough patch and progress into the more interesting bits of Chapter 9, dangit!

TL;DR: Please check out the awesome fanart from Zoe-cupcake <3 and I'll be taking a break and posting the next update on the 7th of August.

Thanks always for your understanding everyone ;v;* when I return, I hope to be able to post comics with a more upbeat and positive heart :) I hope you are looking forward to seeing Mikey's reaction to where Nemi's gone off to XD we'll find out next month!

Oh... wrong question, Lyn - and Kylie you should tell him, soon...

Uh-oh... poor Nemi...

@alt text: yeah, he should have... =S

@a/n: Thank you for all the links <3

Awwwwwww... Zoe-Cupcake is the best!!! <3

Yeahhhhh... that'll be a bit of a heavy conversation.

... that panel of Kylie with her arm around Lyn (the first one mind you!!)... <3 Precious.

Though I’m always a sucker for the ‘last character to join the party’/6th Ranger kinda deal. XD I’m already loving this sweet little boi and he’s just fitting into the party perfectly.

Kylie has to tell Lyn sometime. Those kinds of things usually have to wait until the right time, though.

Thanks for the links to clarify!

Thanks also go out to Zoe for helping to cheer up Rufi!

Take your time Rufi; we all know life gets in the way of living at times! Stay safe!

Kylie got some fancy new clothes there.

And she is really happy to have her baby bro around, isn't she? XD Though to keep him in the dark for long about things would not be wise no matter how much she wants to protect him.

And take your time, rufi. Breaks are always good. Helps avoid burnout. I know when I get done with my current story arc, I'm gonna take a brief break (hopefully).

how come I don't get gift baskets like that ***sob***

That is an awesome pic that Zoe did!
This is a hard decision about telling Lyn, but she needs to tell him sooner rather than later. I don't envy either of them that particular conversation though

Please don't "TL;DR", just put the important stuff right up top then continue with the rest. And why wouldn't you? Why expect people to skip lots before you get to the important stuff? What sort of silly person expects people to read bottom-to-top anyway? Really now.

Did I mention that important stuff needs to go up top? It does.

I agree. I always read the whole thing. If you're gonna take the time to post it, it's the least I can do. ;)

OK, Mike, have a seat. So, there is this court of justice in Caelune and...

And Kylie really should tell Lyn about the whole Lethiace fiasco as soon as possible, with the emphasis on the "possible" part - these things need a lot of tact.

As for the fanart, it is mighty adorable!

yeahhhh, Kylie-sis should probably tell Lyn...but maybe skip some of the gory details out. And that sweet sweet new armor...not I wanna know the stats!
