Hey everyone! Happy new year! :)

Sorry it's been so long since an update - I was actually planning to start uploading these in December, but I never got around to finishing it on time unfortunately. I'll be updating over the next couple of Thursdays as well for the usual in-between chapters content break~

This one in particular is using the scene from this page to mess around through the lenses of a typical Japanese boys' comic, just FYR. XD; And yes, the shift in style is intentional. The next couple of strips demonstrate my attempts to shift style accordingly - I hope you guys find it fun to look at!

I actually really want to do some of the things suggested by the readers as well (thank you so much for providing your thoughts!) but I am kind of struggling through some motivational problems, so I ended up doing what I kind of felt like I *could* do without too much pressure. I've had these parodies at the back of my mind for some time so it was fun to finally get some out~

But don't worry, that doesn't mean I'm going to ignore all the suggestions! I will kind of be taking my time on them though. :)

I think aside from bonus content, though, people are probably more concerned about when the main story will be back on track. To be honest, I wish I could provide a concrete timeline on this because I used to be able to. Recently though, I've been having a lot of trouble bringing myself to draw at all. The problems are kind of personal (as they tend to be) but please know that it will take time.

We'll see how it goes over the next couple of weeks in terms of concrete timelines - I'll be updating about that in the A/N as I do!

In the meantime - MST3K of P!RITN fame sent me this pretty dang awesome holiday headshot of Ophelia for Christmas! Sorry for not showcasing it earlier, but check it out! :D

Thanks so much MST3K for this cute gift, you made Ophelia look so happy X3

Also, I got this amazing gift from CiciEnixa of FD2R fame that I can't express my love for in mere words:

<333 It's just so amazing and I love it so much THANKYEW Cici-muffin ;v;***)/ I feel so undeserving of this gift, but I will treasure it always!!

In general I feel so undeserving of everyone's continued support on SF and I hate to disappoint with being unable to really say exactly when SF will be back. However, please do know it's always on my mind. ;v;*)/

Thanks for being the best readers anyone could be blessed with! I will catch you guys again next week.

I... I think I remember this comic. Oh, how many years since it last updated?

It's good to see you!

It's cool to see you play with different styles; showing what's in your toolkit. Talented lady!

I really hope you don't think of pressure coming from posting. That won't do at all :( You don't owe anyone. If you are not liking what you're doing, it becomes a chore, and yes, you will have motivational issues. It should ALL be fun. The only one you owe anything to, is yourself. :) As for me, I'm satisfied enough when you come out and talk to us. Just kinda sad to hear that your life is getting in the way of your living.

MST3K's take on Ophelia is cute, and that Nemi! You can have Nemi on a shelf watching over you!

Aaanyway, good to see you and hope that your struggles are few in 2019!

Happy New Year to you! I hope you were able to enjoy some time off for the holidays. You'll know when you are ready to start comic-ing again - you'll be excited to!!

Yay! Rufi's back!

You shouldn't feel obligated to give comic page updates all the time if things are going on that need attending to in real life.

Real life stuff always comes first.

But as for what you've drawn today. I definitely get a Naruto feel here on this page. I love the question of how Kylie was able to say all the stuff she does before attacking again.

Oh, and you're very welcome for the art. It was fun to do as always for the holidays. XD

I remember Cici putting that Nemi plushie together. Cool to see it completed.

Glad to see you back, Rufi! It's great getting the comic back on track, but to be honest, I'm more concerned about your RL situation... Even if you're not willing to share specifics, I would like to hear something encouraging on that front!

(I worry about you!!!!)

Nice to hear from you again, and a happy New Year to you as well.

Way back in the 80's I went to Atlantacon and got to listen to a talk by Robert Asprin. He said that the most important thing for a writer to remember was don't quit your day job. I later got his autograph and heard him play guitar while singing "The Space Captain's Daughter". I enjoyed the song.

If you have to focus on earning a living and need to reschedule Serpamiaflare as post work therapy to relieve job stress I am sure that most of your readers will understand.

If your just not sure where you want to go with the characters take the time to reread what you've already done jotting down any new ideas that spring to mind along the way, read a book that you've been meaning to get too or just watch some music videos on YouTube. Speaking of which have you seen Yuve Yuve Yu by the Hu yet?

The little Nemi doll is adorable thank you for sharing the picture.

I love the Shonen edition fight XDDD <3 Fatal Rose didn't stand a chance, both in the fight and the 2-second explanation hahaha

I may have neglected mentioning that the doll may be fragile? Because my stitching is definitely not the best XD But I hope the (totally not a camera) Nemi doll brings you joy and comfort whenever you see her <3

You liiiiive!!! :D Welcome back~ (even if it's just for now)
Ahahah this page is great xD and it definitely looks and sounds like a shounen! xDD I think I read way too much shounen...
I hope everything's going well enough for you! (you know my offer still stands xD)
I totally understand the lack of motivation part; in those times you just do what you can do, even if it doesn't always make sense why you're able to do those things and not other things.
I will pray for you :)
We'll all be waiting for SF to return; in the meantime, take care of yourself! :)
(and dawww cute Nemi xD)
