Happy Wednesday, folks! Are you guys having a good middle of the week, so far? :)

If you need a reminder who 'Phoenix' and 'Bluebird' are, here's the strip with the reference~

I have beautiful fanart to showcase here, done by the extremely talented and wonderful NekoBrimm, a.k.a. thumbjr - I actually received it physically in the mail back in February for V-Day, but I refused to open the envelope until I actually did my half of the art trade... which I didn't actually get around to until way recently :'D (so yeah, don't do art trades with me unless you have the patience of a saint OTL)

So feast your eyes upon this super cute Mike and Nemi in an AU gym locker-room setting in watercolour <3:

Ehehe <3, and a cute little Cain and Kylie ink doodle I got in a vintage V-Day card as a lovely little bonus <333:

Isn't Brimm art just lovely ;3;* <333 I am super blessed! Thankyew so much, Brimmy <3 You can find more Brimm art at Brimmy's Twitter or DevArt.

(If you're interested, I did this piece of Avatar: That Last Airbender fanart as my half of the exchange~)

I'll be going out of town this weekend, so I might miss an update, depending on my progress today and tomorrow on the art front. Thank you for your kind words regarding my shoulder situation btw guys, I really appreciate your concern guys! ;3;* <3 It does feel a lot better these days, thankfully! X3

Okie, I think that's it for now. See you guys on Friday!

Sorry about the absence, everyone! I'm still alive! >_<)/ So I'm in the hospital for tonsillitis (you can check my twitter feed for photos, lulz) and recovering slowly but surely. I'd been under the weather for several weeks, and mistook it as just a passing flu when in reality a virus was settling in and began a rather vicious attack on my liver last week, resulting in me feeling nauseous to the point I was throwing up even a mouthful of water. I was on two courses of antibiotics, but due to this not being normal tonsillitis (like my local clinic thought), it had zero effect on me. With migraines, a swollen throat and no fluids in me, I was forced to admit myself to a hospital and receive treatment. And so here I am, finally well enough to pick up my phone and type up this update! Thanks everyone for all your well wishes ;_;* <333 they mean so much to me, and I'll be sure to respond to each of you when I'm home and not having to type with a needle stuck in the back of my right hand. I apologise for the lack of updates, I'll try to make it up somehow! ^^;; but in the meantime I have been taking everyone's urging to rest up to heart, so that's what I'm doing... Just resting for most of the time and recovering eating, drinking and other normal functions slowly. I'm not discharged yet but hopefully I will be in a day or two! :)

Thanks everyone for your patience and support, and for your understanding!! ;_;* <3

Well, seems like Maddie is not so baddy... =P

I like that narration - complete with icons =P

If she were not so evil I would pity her =S

*lol* @alt text =) indeed you should wash your hands after touching sleeping powder =P =D

...and those fan-art / art exchange pieces are really great =D

rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:15 PM edit delete reply
Definitely wash your hands after touching random potion ingredients, I say! XD;

And yesh, aren't they? <3 I'm super blessed, Brimm is super talented and sweet X3 <333 I'm very thankful!

Hmmm... what evil thing is Abel gonna ask her to do? Sing on Archaiea Idol?
rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:16 PM edit delete reply
Egads, that'd be pretty evil indeed!! @_@ Though I'd expect Abel himself to be on the judging panel for something like that. XD;;
KAM 27th Aug 2015, 7:24 PM edit delete reply
I'm now imagining Abel to sound like Simon Cowell. ;-)

*Madou drops the mike and walks off stage*

...Or at least I could totally picture that from the letter. XP
Apvogt 27th Aug 2015, 1:50 PM edit delete reply
He drew a neat little picture of himself doing that in invisible ink on the back.
rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:17 PM edit delete reply
LOL, Apvogt XD I can imagine him doing that with quite a bit of finesse! Though it'd have to be a Michael, I'm not sure microphones exist in Archaiea :'D
rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:16 PM edit delete reply
Totally imagined for a split second Madou dropping Michael and walking off cackling madly. XD;;;;
Headgamer 26th Aug 2015, 8:05 PM edit delete reply
Someone make an alternative comic where the letter is Madou breaking up with her for his new love Kylie. XD
mjkj 26th Aug 2015, 8:59 PM edit delete reply
Seconded :D
rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:18 PM edit delete reply
LOL, Headgamer XDDD you know, that does kind of work in a very broad sense!!

Madou for the win!

"Either skidaddled or died" Hahahah
This note is glorious!!
Gosh, what's she gonna do...O:
I hope she does it so Madou can kill her.♫

Aaaaaa such cute fanarts!:'D
I hope you're feeling better Rufi!
rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:20 PM edit delete reply
We may not see the thing that Abel is going to ask of her for a while, depending, but whatever it is, Madou no likey at all~~ XD;

And yesh ;3;* I'm very touched by the fanarts, they are super cute! <3

I'm battling illness but it's recovering incrementally over time, I think. Just gotta keep trucking on! XD; Thank you seamuffin for your concern ;3;* *hug*

Ex-Dear Phoenix:

You are not breaking up with me, because I'm breaking up with you first!

What happened to all the sweet evil emotes you used to whisper in my ear?

I thought you were committed to the cause of evil, but it turns out that you are too selfish and arrogant to be a good agent of evil.

Not yours truly,

rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:22 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha Nef! XD Nice composition :'D Every line made me snerk XDDD

'sweet evil emotes' indeed, arrrr

Madou. Madou everywhere. X'D
rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:24 PM edit delete reply
In your head and in your hair.
In the cupboard, on the stair.
On the table, in your chair.
In a single, as a pair.
Madou, Madou everywhere!
Lukkai 27th Aug 2015, 4:47 AM edit delete reply
Hehe. I used the codenames link above to reread the omake sankoma comics. (^_^)

But this comic does actually broaden the characters of both Leela and Madou. Good work!
rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:25 PM edit delete reply
Aww yay XD <3 I did enjoy doing those! <3 I'd probably do more if I had the time...

And thankyew Lukkai! <3 Mission accomplished, woohoo! *dances*

The Chessmaster
Madou's still great.☺ I wonder if he actually wrote down his symbols here?✍

The fight between Leela and Madou should be interesting.⚔ Shame it's probably a long way off.⌛
rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:26 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha XD glad you like Madou! Hmm, could just be his voice resounding with the appropriate vibes in Leela's head, but perfectly possible he supplemented his note with doodles XD

(I really like your symbols here! :D)

Yes, I'm afraid if there is to be a showdown between Leela and Madou, it won't be for quite a while. Unless I get a couple more armies of elves to do my bidding XD

"I'm either free or dead.
In either case...
Nyah, nyah! ;P"

Haha, her reaction is priceless.
rufiangel 27th Aug 2015, 7:27 PM edit delete reply
Ehehehe, she certainly does know how to throw a fit, though her very low strength stat results in a less than satisfying sound of paper against the wall XD;;
HeSerpenty 28th Aug 2015, 2:57 PM edit delete reply
Omg XDD... Madou just went up a few notches on my fav character board for this lil note X'D

How very ominous indeed! Leela should be afraid! Lol well.. I suppose at the very least she's MAD XDD
rufiangel 1st Sep 2015, 2:36 PM edit delete reply
Aww yay! XD Go Madou, you can reach the top billing soon, I know you can! lolol XD

Leela is hoppin' mad for sure after this stunt~ XDDD

What a fun and delightfully evil farewell letter lol.

Ah yes, he's a totally unabashed troll when it comes right down to things, I reckon XD
Kaiki83 30th Aug 2015, 1:37 PM edit delete reply
Hi guys.. In case you were wondering Rufi has been hospitalised from tonsilitis. She was supposed to be in Taiwan but couldn't go. So I thought just in case, I doubt she'll get Monday's strip up in time. Thanks for your understanding!
HeSerpenty 31st Aug 2015, 4:46 AM edit delete reply
O dear poor rufi!!!! Hugs and prayers going her way T__T
Serpamia Flare is worth the wait!

Ohhh gosh Rufi that sounds horrible! I hope you feel better soon, rest up and take a break for a while!;~;
rufiangel 1st Sep 2015, 2:40 PM edit delete reply
Doncha worry seamuffin, I'm back home again! >3< Honestly, after this I think you're a superstar for even managing to keep updating WA after all the hospital stuff. *tightly hugs seamuffin* <3 I'm resting uppp until my IV-drip-swollen hand cools down and I can draw without worrying about popping a vessel somewhere XD;;

Thankyew for the well-wishes!! <3 ;3;
TheMentalist 1st Sep 2015, 4:36 AM edit delete reply
Keep getting better! *Rare to comment here anymore with all the other threads we have, XD.* Hope everything clears up nicely!
rufiangel 1st Sep 2015, 2:41 PM edit delete reply
Indeed, it's been a while! XD; But thankyew Rob! :3 I am back home again, and things will hopefully only get better from here. I'm still on medication but doing much better than the day I was hospitalised! Thanks for all the well-wishes! ;3;* <3
Lukkai 1st Sep 2015, 9:28 AM edit delete reply
Oh dearie.

Rest up and get better. Don't worry about us, we'll still be here and cheering for you!

Health problems like that are something you cannot foresee. So don't feel bad for missing updates because of it. Just make sure to properly recover.
rufiangel 1st Sep 2015, 2:43 PM edit delete reply
Awww Lukkai, thankyew! ;3;* <3 I appreciate the well-wishes a lot!! And for your grace over me during this downtime. I am super blessed with such patient and kind readers ;3;* <3

I am back home again now, just got discharged, but I will probably give it another day before I try updating. Thanks for understanding!! ;w;* <3 *huggu*

I SO have to record myself reading Madou's letter! I have so much fun just reading it aloud, and I'm sure you can use the laughs from my take on how he's saying it. XD
CiciEnixa 7th Sep 2015, 11:06 AM edit delete reply
Dat alt text XDDD

I wish everyone the best of luck regarding the alt text contest :D

Anyway, man, Madou, you can be really ominous in the most light-hearted way and that takes skill. *tips hat*
