Happy Friday! :)

And with this page, chapter five is a wrap! We started with Seia in this chapter and we're ending on him, too. Hmm, he hasn't had a good feeling about this day in general, has he...

I'm now going to take a two week break from the regular updates and will resume with Chapter Six on the 22nd of June, if all goes well. :) I hope you guys enjoyed Chapter Five!

I'll try to finalise something light and quick to do over the break for SF during the weekend, besides tinkering with the website and doing the relevant updates to the character sheets, synopses and world map. At one point I will do some Q&A since you guys asked some questions already! If you guys have other questions for any of the characters, then please feel free to drop questions in the comment section~

I think that's it from me for now. Thank you always for reading. Have a fantastic weekend! :)

Oh, Ophelia looks nice - though she is in the wrong organization...

...and we know that looks can deceive *looks at leela*

I wonder how she wants to overpower him? - and is she alone?

Prayformercy 5th Jun 2015, 7:11 PM edit delete reply
Alone is a good question. shes essentially the number 2 ( i guess?) in a rather large and dangerous organization so odds are she isnt stupid or weak. Shes either immensely powerful and has a reason to be confident imo or trying to distract him in the hopes that associates can take him down. Seia has a hell of a reputation and i doubt they would take him lightly.

Oh, happy you like how she looks XD

She's a girl on a mission! She had something up her sleeve, I'm sure...

I am, too...

...but what???

Prayformercy 5th Jun 2015, 6:07 PM edit delete reply
Rofl! blind guess in a tweet i said i thought the WiP looked like someone weve seen from Zirconia... Shes definitely not someone weve seen before but i suppose i was half right at least :D

Lol, indeed! It was a sharp guess!

Yeppers, it's time for turning the lights and off repeatedly XDDD
Headgamer 5th Jun 2015, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

Great chapter!
This should be a good fight too. :) However, I think if your bothering to introduce her we'll be seeing her again so I'm guessing the both live. ;)

Anyhow enjoy you break!
rufiangel 6th Jun 2015, 3:20 PM edit delete reply
Aww yay! Thanks Headgamer always for your support! I'm happy you enjoyed the chapter! X3
MST3KFan 5th Jun 2015, 8:21 PM edit delete reply
Another of Nemi's kind I'm guessing?

Yeah, this fight won't end well I'm thinking, though I definitely don't think anyone will die, especially a new character introduced here, but...I could be wrong.

Enjoy the break! XD
rufiangel 6th Jun 2015, 3:21 PM edit delete reply
They're rather similar so I don't blame people for thinking she's a kijini but actually, Ophelia is a Danririn.

Thanks MST3K for reading, always! :D

I can vividly imagine both his reaction to it and that of the rest of the group. :D

It's a quote from William Shakespeare's Hamlet. Hamlet says that to the character of Ophelia.
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 9:44 AM edit delete reply
LOL oh, uh, I totally knew that, yeah, sure... I'm cultured... XDDD;;;;

Lukkai 8th Jun 2015, 9:13 AM edit delete reply
I've never read Hamlet.

I watched the movie with (and by) Kenneth Branagh though. He does a good job with Shakespeare adaptations, if you ask me.
rufiangel 10th Jun 2015, 4:23 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, I enjoyed Much Ado About Nothing. XD;
Seabiscuit 5th Jun 2015, 9:51 PM edit delete reply
Heh, I believe in Seia. He's surely got dis. Ass kicking off camera again? Hehehe :D
This Ophelia is cute, though. Don't rough 'er up too bad!
(that alt text~)

Eeee, this was a purely amazing awesome chapter! So much Madou. And Madou joining the party!! Yes. I so very enjoyed all this.>;]

Ahh a break, sounds good! I don't know how you manage to keep up with all this so well! You deserve a break, I hope you enjoy it!:D
rufiangel 6th Jun 2015, 3:24 PM edit delete reply
Awww seamuffin! X3 Thanks always for reading, and for your support!! I'm happy you enjoyed the chapter and all the developments with Madou XD;

Ahahaha XDDD I'm glad you like it Karda! Thanks always for your support! X3

(btw can I put the CainxGrin drawing you did in the gallery? X3 lol)
Chris the Blue 6th Jun 2015, 5:38 PM edit delete reply
Chris the Blue
Sure, that'd be great!

Anyway, there's one question that needs to be answered; what happened to Renault?
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 9:45 AM edit delete reply
Thanks Karda! :D

And... what happened to Renault? ._. Do you want to elaborate or shall we run with this? XD;;;
HeSerpenty 6th Jun 2015, 2:33 AM edit delete reply
OMG. ... what a way to end the chapter! ! Uh she seems really confident... confidence concerns me and now I'm all worried T__T

Egads. ... all the serious things!! I can't wait for next chapter omg
rufiangel 6th Jun 2015, 3:27 PM edit delete reply
Awww Serpy-kins! XD Thanks for reading and for your support! I'm so happy you liked the chapter, I hope the next one will be interesting too...! >_<)/
Digi5 6th Jun 2015, 3:02 AM edit delete reply
Awww, we have to wait a whole 2 weeks to see Seia fight and Madou interact more with our party?! I mean, have a great break! =P

...In all seriousness, thank you for the AWESOME story; I love the alt text, the plot twists, the humor, the action, the cuteness. It’s all great and well worth the 2 week wait!
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 9:46 AM edit delete reply
Awww Digi5, thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement!! ;w;* <333 I really really appreciate it, for reals! I am so happy that you are enjoying SF!! <3 *hug* <333

During the break I'll be doing my best with Chapter Six planning and The Lethian. (I hope you enjoy The Lethian too <3)
Digi5 8th Jun 2015, 11:58 AM edit delete reply
*glomps* <3 You're very welcome! :D (p.s. I also really like how you try to respond to every comment- there's some really interesting conversations that go on below each update and it wouldn't be possible one-sided lol)

I'm really looking forward to reading The Lethian (and chapter 6 ;D )! OwO

rufiangel 10th Jun 2015, 4:25 PM edit delete reply
Aww, Digi5 X3 <333

I do try, mainly because interacting with readers is my joy XD <333
Jarvi 6th Jun 2015, 3:34 AM edit delete reply
Pfft... girl, you can't even sneak up on him.. and you want to kill him? :P
Good luck with that. Or not :P
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 9:47 AM edit delete reply
I know, what sneakage fail is this XDDD

At least she tried, sometimes that's what matters :'D

Another legit cat-girl enters the scene!

Great page, my friend. I truly look forward to these updates. What an excellent series this is.
kaiki83 7th Jun 2015, 12:12 AM edit delete reply
She's a danrir I believe.
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 9:49 AM edit delete reply
It's totally confusing so I don't blame you XD; (my fault for not differentiating too hard with the ears I suppose!) Ophelia is actually Mikey's kind, i.e. a Danririn. :)

ANYWAY, thank you so much Outlaw for always being so encouraging and for reading!! ;w;* <333 Honestly, I am so bolstered by your comments 'cause I totally love IKTH! too! (btw I've still got that special thing to colour, I hope to do it during the break ;D)

So honoured by your words! ;w;* <333 Thankyew Outlaw!!
Crestlinger 6th Jun 2015, 5:38 AM edit delete reply
So they sent their first aide out to meet him, hope she brought bandages and antifreeze.

How powerful Is Cain in relation to the other priests out there without his chains?

Will we ever meet Mike/Nemi's parents?

Can Seia make ice cubes on command for his drinks?
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 9:54 AM edit delete reply
Oooh, interesting questions! Thanks very much for them! :D
Prayformercy 6th Jun 2015, 6:31 AM edit delete reply
QUESTION ... Do cains chains affect his actual power when it comes to casting spells or just his casting speed?
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 9:55 AM edit delete reply
Ooh, interesting. Another question about the chains! Thank you mercy for the question! :)
CiciEnixa 6th Jun 2015, 12:51 PM edit delete reply
This only means one of two things. Either you are going to kill Seia or you will make it seem like Ophelia killed Seia, because like Headgamer mentioned, why would you introduce a character who will die after just introducing herself?

*borrows cleaver from Cadoc*
Prayformercy 6th Jun 2015, 2:05 PM edit delete reply
its not like rufi gave us her life backstory, all we have atm is her name. I see no reason she cant be killed :D (aside from i get this impression shes fairly strong)
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 9:58 AM edit delete reply
Tru dat ;D
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 9:57 AM edit delete reply
XD Seia must die either way, huh? Awww, no faith in the Untouchable Lethian? ;D lolol

(omg cleaver time? >____> *slowly backs away*)
Nef 6th Jun 2015, 3:44 PM edit delete reply

Like her dress. Have I mention before that I'm horrible drawing clothes? Quite a necessary skill too, because naked characters are frowned upon in certain circles...
rufiangel 7th Jun 2015, 10:00 AM edit delete reply
Lolol Nef XDDD

Thank you, I'm glad you like her outfit! To be honest, costume design is not my strong point so I'm happy to hear it looks alright. To design Cain's coat I had to look at a gajillion references and even then I struggle XD;;; but yeah, over time I guess practice is the important thing! (Sometimes when I'm outside and waiting for a friend, I'll watch passersby and mentally catalogue everything they're wearing and then sketchy-doodle it into a notebook. It helps to get some varied clothes!)
(That said, SF is a fantasy comic so I end up mashing together fantasy elements with casual Earth clothes lol)

Ophelia you say... Hmm... *sips* X)

My question is of Kylie: What qualities are you looking in a man? If you aren't, lets pretend you were. XD
rufiangel 10th Jun 2015, 4:25 PM edit delete reply
You just like it when I draw girls, doncha D? XDDD
Lukkai 8th Jun 2015, 9:23 AM edit delete reply
Guessing that "waste of spirit" was wholly on purpose by Seia. Speaking up only right before he expected her to start something anyway.
rufiangel 10th Jun 2015, 4:25 PM edit delete reply
Pretty much, Lukkai! XD

And congratz on wrapping another chapter!
