Happy Monday, folks! :) I hope you guys are having a good start to your week so far!

And yes, I pulled a 'this is a flashback kindasorta actually it's mostly a dream' thing to change the scene, haha. Hope you guys were wanting to see what Kylie and co were up to, anyway! XD

I got a beautiful surprise in the form of lovely Kylie fanart from the wonderfully talented Rinkel (behind the super sparkly and gorgeous Xenobiosis webcomic) the other day :D


<333 Thank you so much Rinkel!!

Actually, I cropped Kylie out of the set; I suggest you guys check out this post in the forum thread to see the full set of kickass heroines, I'm so honoured Kylie got in that set ;w;* <333

I also got a super cute doodle of Kylie getting a headrub by Cici-muffin (creator of the fantastic From Dust to Ruination) that I wanted to share for the happy headrub feels <3


AND this is really my own personal joy (lol) but the original character I sent over for Serpy-kins to use popped up in the last panel of the latest page of SoO - yes, that cute silver-haired young man is our Kyle (who may or may not be a genderbend of Kylie) and I am SUPER excited to see him! <333 XD (And if you don't already read Serpents of Old you are missing outtt!)

I am super blessed! <333 thankyew, you talented lovelies ;w;* <33 *hugs Rinkel, Cici-muffin and Serpy-kins*

I think that's a wrap for today, I'll have more to say on Wednesday. Thank you guys for reading, I'll see you guys on Wednesday's update!

OMG YES...... I've waited my whole life for this page! Well okay that's an exaggeration XDD... but I'm super happy that Cain is showing up in Kylie's dreams. OTP is becoming a reality!


(also...I can't get enough Kyle <3. Its my pleasure to have him as a part of my comic! THANK U FOR GIVING HIM TO ME <3--again lolol. I know I always say that XDD)

Awww Serpy-kins, I'm so happy you're happy XD lolol! (Sowee about Seia... :'D)

I'm SUPER looking forward to SoO's next page! I'm always looking forward to them but yeah, just that tiny extra excitement for Kyle! <333 XDDD

I'm super glad you like the scribbly fanart! I promise I'll make you a better (shinier) one in the future ^_^

Nice transition. The real thing that breaks me here is that it goes right from Seia's death to a dream of a memory in which he's been replaced. Oh, and the fact that he got roasted alive from the inside out.

Seriously, brilliant storytelling. I applaud you on the sheer intensity of all.
rufiangel 15th Jul 2015, 1:55 PM edit delete reply
Awww!! ;__;* Thank you for being so encouraging!! I'm really really happy to hear that it's reading well <333 ;3;* Thankyewwww!

Hopefully the way the rest of the chapter pans out will be interesting...!

So, Kylie and Seia are having the same flashback?
rufiangel 15th Jul 2015, 2:20 PM edit delete reply
Hmm, that's one way of looking at it! XD
MizuNoRyuu 13th Jul 2015, 2:58 PM edit delete reply
I agree, great transition. :o

:< Wish there was one last panel on this page... with Cain giving Kylie a soft smile.
rufiangel 15th Jul 2015, 2:21 PM edit delete reply
Yay, thank you Mizu! X3

We'll see next page what the next panels are~ hehe :D

Hey, at least this might count as exposure therapy to help loosen her emotional block on her power?
Don't be sad, Kylie. Everyone didn't die! XD
rufiangel 15th Jul 2015, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha exposure therapy XD Madou might want to use that one! Lolol

It might take her a wee bit of time to reorient herself~ XP

What a nightmare to wake up to. ;-)
rufiangel 15th Jul 2015, 2:24 PM edit delete reply
You should have seen my WIP when I was working on that fifth panel, I accidentally drew them too close so it looked like they were sleeping under the same blanket :'D

It's a dream, but also I'm guessing a bit of a prediction where in the past Seia was there for Kylie, but in the dream, it changes to Cain...

I get this feeling Seia may not be among the living much longer. O_o

Passing on the baton, so to speak.
rufiangel 15th Jul 2015, 2:28 PM edit delete reply
Mmm. :)

For sure, the dream probably means *something* or the other... XD maybe~
Digi5 13th Jul 2015, 5:46 PM edit delete reply
What a way to continue the cliffhanger from Friday! ...And yes, I am interested in what Cain and co are up to, but after such a dramatic battle, I totally forgot about them! O_O ...Nice transition btw. I was like: Ooh, Cain! Wait, is Seia thinking of a jealous memory? ...No, the panels' edges aren't black, which means this is what's really going on (as opposed to what Seia's thinking!) ...And that's the end of the page?! WhathappenedtoSeia?! Then I read the author's notes about it being a dream/flashback, and thought that it could very well be a dream of Kylie's. But then, the cover page showed Kylie still down for the count! I can think of 2 reasons: either she's just dreaming now and still hasn't really woken up yet, or she HAS woken up, and in that scene on the cover page, she will be sleeping 'cause she'll still be tired.

...Sorry for such a long comment :'( Maybe I'm making up for my last -really short- one? lol

EDIT: just 2 more things: 1. My first thought when I saw this page was actually, "Rufi updated an hour earlier than usual? YAY!" 2. I looked back over the page, and I see that Kylie and Cain are in the same positions as on the cover page, so there's a 3rd possibility: a time lapse between when we saw Cain and co last, and when the time of the cover page is, which is "now" (in the comic's present time).
rufiangel 15th Jul 2015, 2:32 PM edit delete reply
Ahahahaha never be sorry for a long comment, Digi! XD <3 I love 'em! <333

Cain has changed out of his shirt into the more meh-looking comfy/casual wear, and the surroundings look a little darker compared to the chapter cover... So time passage is, I hope anyway XD;, heavily implied. :) we'll see soon enough just how much time has passed.

Sorry to cut off the Seia and Ophelia fight! It had to be done XD but we'll learn eventually what happened ;)

Hehehehehehe! What a dream!
Yay, back to the party! Ohhhh boy oh boy boy I can't wait to see Kylies reaction to Madou being in the party. I can only imagine she'll be speechless from utter joy.>D
Such adorable fanart! Eeee!
Ohhh dude I thought that silver haired fellow was familiar- So it was Kyle!! Awesome!:D

Seamuffinnn X3

Yeaaaah, speechless in utter joy, sure... XDDD (Maybe don't bet too many Goldras on that outcome XD)

So, if Seia dies but his deeds and power inspire a lot of good things and people start to follow his example and such...

Does he become Saint Seia?

*runs and hides*

OMG I'M COMING AFTER YOU XDDD *holds up bag of pun jars to fling after Lukkai and runs*
Crestlinger 14th Jul 2015, 7:39 AM edit delete reply
That feeling when you wake up knowing all your Very Expensive armour's likely gone forever.
Lukkai 15th Jul 2015, 4:39 AM edit delete reply
I think that will take a few moments more to settle in.
rufiangel 15th Jul 2015, 6:02 PM edit delete reply
Gosh, don't we all hate that sinking feeling in our stomach? :'D
CiciEnixa 14th Jul 2015, 9:37 AM edit delete reply
Seriously, Dream Cain is a troll just jumping into Kylie's dream and ruining that sad but beautiful moment. Next thing you know, whenever Kylie dreams of her brother, the boy's just gonna have Cain's face.

Or worse, he's gonna have Madou's face :,D
rufiangel 15th Jul 2015, 6:03 PM edit delete reply
HAHAHAHAHA omg :'D poor Kylie, she's never gonna get any proper sleep for a long while, will she

(and both Cain and Madou will be treated with long, icy stares upon her awakening and they will never understand why or what they did wrong :'D)
