Hey guys! How's your middle-of-the-week going so far? :) I hope it's going swell!

So, good news is, I finished thumbnailing the entirety of Chapter Seven in advance, which means I've saved a HUGE bulk of planning time in whole the process!

Bad news, though, is that I've barely even STARTED drawing the first page of Chapter Seven, so that's just a major bummer. u_u

BUT! Good news again - it's Chinese New Year next week and I'll be on break from work, so it should give me sufficient time to actually catch up on the strip and we'll see about the update schedule. Honestly? Most realistically the best I can do is probably two updates a week. But let's wait and see. :) I'd like to be optimistic!

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed the side-story. I had fun drawing it! It's the origin-of-Seia's-monocle story that got second-place when I ran the poll waaay back between Chapters Four and Five. Hope you guys found it interesting, at least!

Stay warm, lovely readers, and thanks always for reading. The next update should be the cover page for Chapter Seven! See you guys on Friday, with that! :D

<3 lil'Kylie...

Quick decision - and it seems his seeing-seal has an effect on the females... :P

Noooooooo, the side story is over T_T *cries* *misses lil'Kylie*

PS: Please take care - and please consider early to switch to a two times update schedule if you run behind - before you get frustrated or burnt out *hugs*

Ahahaha, I'm happy that you liked it Mjkj! X3 Little Kylie was fun to draw <33

(Actually, Seia was technically not wearing the seal at that time in the panel XD)

And I'm actually considering once a week first :'D lol!

Ah, it looked like she got the hearts in her eyes as he was putting it on...

Ah, once a week - though I personally want more - that is a wise decision =)

Heh...of course it would be a blue one. Like that was ever NOT going to be the case. XD

LOL I like how the girl seems to become smitten with Seia there. XD

And Aaawww... Lil' Kylie... X3

I love how you developed the relationship between Seia and Kylie here. They really feel like family. Bravo, rufi! XD

Keep up the amazing work! (Though don't exhaust yourself in the process.)
rufiangel 5th Feb 2016, 3:47 PM edit delete reply
Lolol, yes, it could only be the blue one, really XD <3 though this one broke, now...

And thank you so much MST3K!! ;3;* Such high praise and kind words from such a talented dude, I'm really flattered and honoured!! <3 *glomp* X3 thankyewwww!

(I'll do my best XD I'll probably be a slacker most of the time, no worries!! :'D)

Awww, thank you Matt!! X3 Glad I could end it on a classy note ;D <3

I'm looking forward to Chapter 7 myself! Though I'm still unsure if I'll be able to do it well... I'll try my best! >3<)/

I like the brown one, though if it had a purple variation... but yes, I approve of the blue one for Seia <3<3<3 It makes perfect sense.

I am so glad you didn't end this with murder lol XDDD So don't go murdering yourself with 3 updates a week if you don't think you can do it, okay?
rufiangel 5th Feb 2016, 3:50 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha, well, assuming Seia survived the last fight 'properly', he'll need a new one... *puts in one vote for the purple variant of the brown lens* XD <3

I'll do my best not to murder myself :'D honestly my worry is more that I'll be too easy on me than too hard but we'll see! XD;;

Yep, new seal loaded to the brim with sight amplification spells, infrablue vision, the Works. To serve him well until he (almost) explodes. And now he has an opportunity to get a new one.
rufiangel 5th Feb 2016, 3:50 PM edit delete reply
Infrablue!! XD What does infra-blue vision show? :D
mjkj 6th Feb 2016, 6:15 AM edit delete reply
(Infra-blue should be green/turquois since infra means this side/below in the spectrum whilst ultra means far side/above in the sprectrum...)

The blue one is of course the best one, is my totally unbiased thought~~

rufiangel 5th Feb 2016, 3:51 PM edit delete reply
Lolol seamuffin, yep, totally unbiased...! XDD <3 But yayy, thank you so much <3 I am so happy you approve of the way it wrapped up! X3 <333

I would have gone for the cat-eye lens myself, especially if it was blue... lol
rufiangel 5th Feb 2016, 3:52 PM edit delete reply
Cat-eye lens? XD

*looks at panel 3 and 4*

And so it begins...

And that's another cool gal, you've drawn there.

Also: And knowing is half the battle!
rufiangel 5th Feb 2016, 3:53 PM edit delete reply
LOL! Yes, it all starts and gets honed from here... ;D

And aw, thankyew! X3 I liked drawing her, too~ who knows? We might see her again! ;)

Rufi that was so darling!! I thoroughly enjoyed it <333...and now even more heart wrenched over my suspicion that Seiah still might die T__T.

(I have a theory that his little ice trick just buys him some time.............TIME TO SAY GOODBYE D':. I hope I'm wrong dangit!! I probably am my theories are NEVER true X'D >____>)

HOLD up I just realized why Seiah picked the blue one!! AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!! <333333

Enter the monocle!
Excellent side-story, my friend.
I truly enjoyed every bit of it.
That being said, I can't wait for the focus to return to our heroes!

Thank you Myl for reading again! <3 I'm glad to have you back for a binge XD (SF is apparently better as a binge-read than a drip-feed lol :'D)
