Woo, happy Wednesday, dear readers! :D I hope you're having a lovely middle-of-the-week!

I am continuing to receive participants for the SF Christmas giveaway! Thank you everyone who already took part! It's been so good to see every response! ♥

For the bonus question, I realise maybe directing you guys to the synopses page might be helpful :D (It's completely optional, though!)

[Note: The giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation! :)]

So far, the giveaway Rufi mystery packet will have:
- The Lethian if you haven't already gotten it!
- Leftover pre-order exclusive bookmarks for The Lethian~ (I think I only have one full set left; the rest are Jason and Linda XD;;)
- SF Stickers!
- Free DLC!
- A Nemi and Michael postcard print!
- Other stuff yet to be finalised! XD;

I'll be collecting answers until the end of this week (December 6th), and will announce winners next week. :D Thankyew for taking part~~!

The next two updates are 1.5 page updates - I hope you guys enjoy 'em. There isn't very long until the end of Chapter Six.

Have an awesome middle-of-the-week, and see you guys on Friday! :)

I also posted it some point in Chapter Five, when I knew it would be most inappropriate XD <33

Heheh, so cute XD

You are so great at quick sketches.
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 11:57 AM edit delete reply
Awwww thank you Stever! XD I don't do enough of them :'D (Cici-muffin definitely wins in the quick sketch department though XD)

Oh man, is she actually saying there are at least TWO original lapia oaks in the middle of conflict right now?! Dangit Abel!!!

But... what is Kylie even expected to find? If it's stuff only she can find because of the key thing, how can the anjelians help out in it? (<-- much contemplation and brain farts, don't mind me)
Lukkai 2nd Dec 2015, 8:09 PM edit delete reply
Or maybe she wouldn't be the only one who could find it, but one of the very few people able to do something about it?

Hands up, people: Who in here thinks that Vio and Ardent were the original Lethian Knights/Lethiace wielders?

*raises hand*

@Lukkai & Digi: ;D
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 11:58 AM edit delete reply
Yep, she is saying that indeed ;) Hmm, why is Abel messing around with the Danrir/Kijin conflict anyway?

And I love all your contemplation and brain farts <333 *huggles* XDD

*pat pats "little kijini"*

Loved that line for some reason. XD
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 12:00 PM edit delete reply
XD Isaac called her that, too! I guess that's how Anjelians see her ;D

Nemi looks soooo adorable in panel one... *hugs her*

*lol* @alt text :)

rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 12:00 PM edit delete reply
Lolol Mjkj XD If Nemi came up to you and asked for all your money with that slight head tilt and big eyes, you'd pour all your Goldras into her lap, wouldn't ya. XDD
mjkj 4th Dec 2015, 7:00 PM edit delete reply
maybe? XD

*now wondering whether the placement of the lowest speech bubble in panel four was a reaction to my comment from last page, prayformercy's posting in the forums or just coincidence/necessary because of panel structure* XD

You still can find the uncensored panel in the WiP thread and on twitter...
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 12:01 PM edit delete reply
Mjkj!! XD The word 'uncensored' makes it sound really scandalous ahahahahaha XDD

LOL Lukkai!! XDDD

Honestly I wasn't thinking too hard but... maybe it was sub-conscious? :'D
Lukkai 2nd Dec 2015, 8:15 PM edit delete reply
Hehe.. We've talked about this before, but Kylie really is becoming the poster girl for kuudere. (^_^)

Also the elder is a great character!
And Cain, again, shows his vast knowledge of history.
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 12:02 PM edit delete reply
XDD I guess that's who she is... kuuuuu XD <3

And yay, I'm glad the elder has some character despite her rather short appearances so far (and you know, all the I-Am-A-Plot-Machine™ signs hanging off her head) XD

(And yep XD Cain has to be good for some things, sometimes... :'D)
Digi5 3rd Dec 2015, 1:05 AM edit delete reply
Gee, I wonder if the first Lapia Oak is in the Holy Capital? ...or in that sky garden Abel's mom was talking about.
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 12:03 PM edit delete reply
XD That's an excellent guess, Digi! :D

Hmmm Sky Garden... is in the Holy Capital. That much I can say ;D

Sidequests AHOY!!
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 12:03 PM edit delete reply
Yep! XD Though this one may not really be an optional quest at all... :'D
Jarvi 3rd Dec 2015, 4:28 AM edit delete reply
To the plotquest! :D

How did the original conversation went? :D
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 12:09 PM edit delete reply
XDD I'm imagining everyone jumping into the PlotMobile now XDD

The original conversation went something like:

Elder: I don't expect you to do it alone.
Kylie: But then why did you call me here alone?
Elder: That didn't necessarily mean I wanted you to go alone. Humans and their way of thinking...
Kylie: But I just-- I mean, you just--
Elder: Whenever you assume, you make an ass out of (yo)u and me. Wise words to live by.
Kylie: Bwuh?
Elder: Just go get her friends, will you, Ishi?
Kylie: Wait--
Elder: Are they not your friends?
Kylie: What? No! I mean, yes, they are, I guess?
Elder: Are you being shy?
Kylie: What?! No! I mean--
Elder: How endearing.
Kylie: ............... imjustgonnabequietnow

Oh gosh that summon grows cuter everytime ;-;

Heee, Kylie! Oh, she totally wants the company. Fooling absolutely no one. :)
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 12:10 PM edit delete reply
XD Awww seamuffin, I'm so glad you like Ishi! <3

And ahahaha XD Kylie just wants the record set straight that she didn't actually say it (out loud) ;D

In keeping with the number of the comic:
'We're sorry but your Professor is in another castle.'

I should've prepped something fun for 404 now that I think about it XD dangit! Oh well, may the comments suffice :'D
MysticJanus 3rd Dec 2015, 12:44 PM edit delete reply
404 Comic not found. :( jk, jk!

If only this had coincided with April 1st... then I could've really had some fun with it XDD

DUN DUN DUN. Oh Rufi this is gorgeous *U*
I really like that we're getting back in the saddle. It's good to see the crew starting to work together again andddddd hopefully we'll see where Abel's dumb spider fingers are poking about >_>
rufiangel 4th Dec 2015, 12:17 PM edit delete reply
Awww, thank you Spelluuuu! <333 ;3;* It always means so much to me to hear such encouraging words from you, master of gorgeous pages!

It IS nice to have things start moving again, since Chapter Six was definitely a standstill point after the events of Chapter Five. And yes, hopefully in the chapters to come, Abel's dumb spider fingers will come to light :'D LOLOL

That citadel sounds outrageous.
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 3:32 PM edit delete reply
It's mostly a hologram. ;D

... no it's not. It just wishes it were that outrageous. :'D
