Hey guys, here's the update - thank you for your patience! I hope you enjoy the double-page~ ^^

There are three updates left before Chapter Seven ends, and then I'll be taking a break to prepare for Chapter Eight! If you guys have anything in particular you'd like to see between chapters, feel free to let me know. :)

In the meantime, Friday Flare will go up sometime this weekend, and with some effort, the next update will go up on Monday! See you then!

Sorry guys, the update I planned for Monday will not be able to happen. I didn't want to delay it but I got really sick today from some kind of stomach bug and almost all my free time today in bed ;;;; =_=

I'll be out of town starting on Thursday and returning next Monday for an extended business trip, so I'll definitely drop an update on what's happening with the next update before Thursday.

Thanks for your patience and understanding! >_<)/

New Theory: Archer IS Madou! D:

Just kidding XD, but I was right that someone had to save them.

LOL Headgamer, this comment cracked me up XD I'm sorry to disappoint regarding your Madou theory, it was a good one! But yes, you were right - they needed a little help! ;)

Yayyy, Mike will not be fried...

I hope they will find a way to get out soon...

Ugh, what happened with Archer's collar?

Lukkai 11th Dec 2016, 12:02 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
Looks like some kind of security feature of the magic kind to me. Or it's a "call" collar, meaning someone is really wondering just where he went and is growing impatient. (Some brat like that coming to mind maybe? ;) )

@Lukkai: I am now imagining a mobile phone ringtone starting to play from the collar now XD
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 12:57 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Actually, he was already fried quite a bit XD

Hmm, what indeed? ;P

ARCHER used SING!

SLAVER fell asleep!

I just felt I had to.

This is no nitpick, so donchu worry, rufi, it's just hilarious when I thought about it XD

RPG-wise, this is perfectly, 100% possible.
IRL... Archer how in the heck did you manage to sing and make ONLY Nadine fall asleep??? Okay, Jinn MIGHT be in too much pain to fall asleep, but Nemi HAO??? XD Filtered earplugs?

Okay, now that THAT's out the way...Archer you hero~ <3 Though, why did the choker thing glow? Was he not supposed to say certain stuff, or is that Briar looking for him?

Its the anti-magic bars. mo magic no sleep.

@garbud: That's definitely a fair point! :)

Spellsong probably can be guided. Bard songs only give boni to allies as well, after all. Even though the enemies can hear them just as well.
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:03 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Lukkai: Yeah, I think the targeting can be specific. *Should* be specific too, or else Cici's point becomes a real problem in group settings XD;

DLKmusic
Actually I was kinda thinking that different races need different songs...
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:05 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@DLKmusic: Hmm, that's an interesting point! I think in general game mechanics the same spells would work universally just to avoid the work (lol) but if we break down songs to their nitty-gritty technical details, they might tailor it specifically to their targets. It's an interesting notion I hadn't thought about :O
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:00 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
IRL (lol) Archer targeted only one person, that's why. :) It wasn't an AOE song~ those sound different!

And the choker thing, we'll see if I ever get around to explaining that in-comic XD; if I don't by the end of Chapter 8, please remind me and I'll clarify it again then XD

Gosh, I dunno what to believe! Did the Defender and Kylie make a pact or not? What crazy danger is she in? D: But good on Archer for doing this, the more allies free to help the better! Err...that is...once they get out XD
Lukkai 11th Dec 2016, 12:04 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
I'm guessing this 'unsafe' is precisely why Bradley wants her in the tournament as his undercover agent.
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:06 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Lukkai: Fufu, we'll see how much Bradley knows... ;)
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:06 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Nehehehehe ;D

But yes, they're not quite out of the woods yet, though Archer certainly seems in a good place to help out (for now) ;)
Crestlinger 10th Dec 2016, 6:49 AM edit delete reply
'...unsafe.' Yeah if Kylie's pushed too far the whole city's getting owned by blizzard. She only Just got a handle on her powers after all.

Ya, you wouldn't want her to go all "Jaghut" and create an instant glacier...
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:07 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@sigpig: I had to look up 'Jaghut' - that's pretty terrifying :'D
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:07 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Hmm, we'll see how brittle Kylie's handle on her Lethiace is, in time. ;)

Omg Archer, you're just too adorable :D
What happened with this collar? Is Briar calling you and causing that? :o
Lukkai 11th Dec 2016, 12:05 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
I'm giving about 65% odds that this is exactly what's happening.
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:09 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Lukkai: I'd ask for the maths behind that, but then I'm 99% sure I wouldn't understand it XD
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:08 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Maybe it's like Ultraman, and when the light glows, it means danger is approaching XD

(Yes I joke)

Definitely don't blame you Centy, I have a knack for that! XD Though to be fair, Archer is more obviously male when looked at from a frontal full-body shot. >3<

Thank you so much Centy <333 I really hope you're taking it easy! I'm gonna catch up on DC over my break <3

Saved by Archer! I don't think anyone expected that. Of course, there's still the matter of getting out of the cell now. ^_^;

I was pretty surprised no one guessed it coming! XD;

Actually saving them from a danger he didn't even know was there while failing at the task he actually went there to accomplish... (^_^)

How about some (in simple sketches, so it's not too much work) alternate universe "Serpamia Flare High School" as omake in between the chapters? ;)
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:12 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ah yes, I keep putting that on the backburner, don't I? XD; It does sound fun!

ARCHEEER thank goodness you showed up! <3333 YOu big sweetie <3

O man... is this a set up?? It wouldn't surprise me. Someone needs to get down where Cain is ASAP!

Archer does seem to be drawn to trouble XD

And this whole chapter is a set up, probably XD;;;

That is not the fun way to spend all your time in bed. ^_^

I hope you are feeling better as soon as possible, and that your recovery is full and complete. Enjoy your trip -- may it be safe and smooth.

Thank you Gil! :) It was only just the Sunday and Monday - I was back up again by Tuesday, and then rushing everything like mad before the trip XD;

The trip itself was indeed safe and smooth, though! Thank you for your well wishes :D

Ah! So their singing can do that... That's very handy. They'd sure make good nannies... ;)

I found tea from/with fennel and kummel caraway to be very good for a bad stomach. Also an occasional sip of Becherovka, a bitters from the Czech town of Karlovy Vary.

Ginger and peppermint are also good for upset tummies. Ginger is especially good for nausea.
Lukkai 14th Dec 2016, 11:12 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
Ginger is good, period. ;)

I tend to add at least a little to nearly everything I cook.

The Scots like to drink whisky liqueur with ginger, sometimes with honey as well, when the weather gets really bad. And having tried it myself, I can heartily recommend it.
rufiangel 29th Dec 2016, 1:17 PM edit delete reply

Whoa, these sound like really strong remedies I should check out the next time I suffer from an upset stomach @_@ Thank you for sharing your worldly wisdom, Lukkai, Digi! <3

Yay! Glad they got rescued, and glad Archer got a heroic moment! He's cool :)

Technically, all saera have the ability to sing! :)

And I'm glad you're glad, lol XD Archer does seem to be a reader favourite so far, I'm happy Alicia let me use him! <3

LOL Well, one obstacle at a time I guess. XD

It's so much fun seeing Archer in the comic! <3
