Less than a month left for pre-orders!
(Note: please check this DA journal out to help me promote the novel and maybe get a freebie bit of art out of it~)

Happy Friday! X3 Thanks for your patience, everyone, regarding the break on Wednesday~

The Redrawing the First Chapter Campaign has now been completed! I will be delivering the last reward to supporters over the following week. Here is the last strip uploaded onto DA and Tapastic, strip 21! The image links to the DA page.

You can check out the Tapastic link here~

Please go ahead and check out the DA journal entry
to check out all the side-by-side panel comparisons for all the old and redrawn strips!

The final supporter count and financial support I got can be summarised as follows:

Thank you so so much, each and every one of you! ;w;* *hugs each one in turn <3* I really really appreciate it!! Without you guys this wouldn't have happened nearly as quickly as it did!

If you guys check back to the first 21 strips on the website, by the way, you'll see that I've now replaced all of them with the redrawn versions with links in the author's notes to the old versions on DeviantArt. :)

In other news, the other day I received a surprise in my inbox from the creator of The Far Side of Utopia!


Apparently, Mjkj asked the artist to draw Nemi during a request run and the creator sent me this super cute Nemi fanart with a really nice note about SF. <3 :D Thank you so much, Bill! And of course, to you, Mjkj~~ *huggu* <3

And that's a wrap for this week! Whew. Have a fantastic long weekend, and see you guys next Monday!

PS: I hope Kylie makes the right decision... and maybe she gets some comfort, healing etc. out of it, too...

Kylie kinda has little choice to be honest XD;; it's kind of do or die!
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:29 PM edit delete reply
Ehehe, thanks Mjkj XD

Great :D ...and how much of all that choci did your elves actually get? '^_^


rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:31 PM edit delete reply
*huggu* *^_^* Thank you! I really appreciate the support so so much!!

Elves got most of the choco, they found where I hid it under the bed. Greedy little munchkins

Unleash the beast! ...Oh, wait. ^_^;

Just one thing on this page. In the third panel he says 'BUT' twice. Thought I'd just point that out.
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:32 PM edit delete reply
Ahck!! XD Thanks MST3K for pointing that out, fixed it!!

And yes, unleashing the beast may cause problems XD;;;
Headgamer 1st May 2015, 8:09 PM edit delete reply
But really, she won't fail. She's already used it once when her life depended on it.

Congrats on finishing! The re-draws look great. If you ever wanted to update the next chapter too I'd support you again. ;)
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:38 PM edit delete reply
Awww, thank you Headgamer!! :D *hug* <333 I really really appreciate the support!!

Actually, Kylie's life wasn't on the line last time so much as it was Zinala's, and subsequently, the interpretation to Kylie's dreams. :) Just to clarify, haha.

It's do or die now, huh? *puts on a scarf and sunglasses* BRING IT!!!

(also might I say those are the coolest magicky things Madou is calling forth on the bottom left and I love it lots because the suns look like golden spider lilies <3)
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:41 PM edit delete reply

And so happy you like the magic circle XD <333 (photoshop shapes ftw LOL)
KAM 1st May 2015, 8:42 PM edit delete reply
Well, at least he didn't sing, "Let it go". ;-)
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:41 PM edit delete reply
Only if he actually wants her to "let it go", so to speak! XD;;

Looks like things are about to get "heated"..: don't even look at me!!!

(*snicker* dat alt text)

Oh gosh Madou is really adorable, especially that 4th panel. *-*
I hope he is up against Abel or somethin'! There needs to be an army mobiled to kick that little snots ass.D:
Jarvi 1st May 2015, 11:10 PM edit delete reply
Yes! And Yes! And Yes!
Let's cheer for Madou (maybe for Kylie now so she doesn't screw this one up xD)!
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:45 PM edit delete reply
Ahahahaha awww Saari-nii so much Madou love XDDD <3

Kylie definitely needs some luck on her side... Though it's not a fluke Madou is looking for this time >_>a
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:44 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha always happy to see your Madou love, seamuffin XDDD <333

I guess he's planning something, but whether it's for or against Abel remains to be seen... Though I agree that Abel is, most likely, a little snot indeed XDDD

Madou should have gotten a job as a motivational speaker. He'd probably be great at it, up until he fried his audience.
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:46 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha, omigosh, if he does motivational speeches I pity the poor assistant who has to come up with all his emojis (read:me) XDDD;;;

Matt Knab
Well, he's definitely going all in. Betting the farm, so to speak.
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:49 PM edit delete reply
Yep! He's betting not just his life, but the lives of everyone in vicinity, actually... XD;;

*Scuffles glyph *Plays with the ball of vanishing magical energy.

Read that at first as Lethal Ice. Fits.

By fire be purged!
rufiangel 3rd May 2015, 7:50 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha XD if the glyphs were of chalk, that'd work fairly well as a counter XDDD lol!

And that does fit, lol XD
Proxy170 4th May 2015, 1:13 AM edit delete reply
Hmmm this guy...he's basically willing to sacrifice his safety/life in exchange for just a hope that he *might* find the solution to his must be something of great worth...
rufiangel 4th May 2015, 3:15 PM edit delete reply
Yep, Madou's risking it all for something rather important to him, anyway... XD;;
Outlaw 5th May 2015, 6:05 AM edit delete reply
Oh snap...!
He's forcibly pushing her...!
This is never good...!
rufiangel 6th May 2015, 12:53 AM edit delete reply
For sure! Not even the guild tried to force Kylie to overcome her block... >_<
Damatris 10th May 2015, 11:09 PM edit delete reply
Are you... Are you forcing Kylie to release her lethiace by attempting to burn her alive?!! D:
rufiangel 11th May 2015, 12:06 PM edit delete reply
Yep XD; 'Do or die', basically!!
