Happy Friday!

Thanks so much for your patience with me this week once again. I knew once I got to Korea the updates were going to be hiccupy. :/ Anyway, most of my time over the past day or two got sucked up by a bunch of stuff (legal thingummies I had to do in Korea - basically what I'm here for) and I also got ill for a bit and pretty sleep-deprived, so anyway, not a good week for producing pages. ~_~

So here's Wednesday's update up on Friday, and I'll try to have Friday's update some point on Sunday. I don't like skipping updates this often either, sorry folks. :<

Anyway, party is now mostly split up, fun times! Have a great Friday and weekend, everybody, and see you on Sunday!

I don't think Ishi is huggable. Looks like a non-physical entity to me.
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 1:50 PM edit delete reply
Actually, technically, you can touch Ishi when he's been summoned XD; though I can't say whether he'll allow it!
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 1:49 PM edit delete reply
XD Aww, Ishi must look really squishy! <3

Everybody's getting split up. I'm sure this won't have any foreseeable problems coming up.
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 1:51 PM edit delete reply
Well... the characters do need to occasionally be apart, I'd die if I had to keep drawing everyone in every panel all the time! :'D

Woah O_O

She is looking good - and not much anjelian traits from her mother...

...oh she has a ghost (or spirit?) following her?

I hope you feel better, Rufi *hugs* ...and please take care of yourself...

Sorry about that, Mjkj ^^;;;; please forgive me...
mjkj 19th Nov 2015, 4:36 PM edit delete reply
You are forgiven. But please try not to worry me so much again... '^_^
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 1:51 PM edit delete reply
She has a leaf sprite summoned out~ she's a Green Mage so she is a summoner. :) I'm glad you think she looks good!
CiciEnixa 13th Nov 2015, 9:02 PM edit delete reply
Ooooh, Lenna looks so classy <3 And looks like she's a summoner, too, like Ophelia. Ishi, you so cuuute and gentlemanly, I wanna keep him lol

Edit: I realized after rereading that Lenna doesn't seem to have markings on her body. I was wondering why she seemed off before.
mjkj 13th Nov 2015, 9:23 PM edit delete reply
Indeed she does.

...yeah, where can I get one of those? I need a replacement for my baby coco Sarah...
*goes back into coco withdrawal*

*comforting pap*

We shall find her soon, don't worry <3

*keeps eye on rufi*
Outlaw 15th Nov 2015, 3:00 PM edit delete reply
I could def. see her as a summoner.
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 1:53 PM edit delete reply
Yep, that she be! <3
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 1:53 PM edit delete reply
Yeppers, she is absolutely a classy summoner <3 ehehehe :D and I'm happy you like her little leaf sprite <3 I liked drawing him too, babu butler XD

And yep, she only has markings when she's using Anjelian-race-type skills :D it's because she's half-human! ;)
mjkj 19th Nov 2015, 4:35 PM edit delete reply
Wow, soo cool :)

anjelian in disguise =P
Prayformercy 13th Nov 2015, 9:32 PM edit delete reply
Hope things are going well for you in korea :D Take it easy and make sure to get some sleep when you can.

On the note of the recent pages! I still dont trust madou and don't like that hes the one to bring in a stranger to help the party. Who incidentally, her first action is to split the party. Isolating the person away from everyone else that madou tried to kidnap before.

Shes also now in prime position to manipulate w/e information on the curse that cain has.

So, shes a green mage like the Ophelia ah? And Madou was the one who brought her over? :D (Conspiracy theories abound mostly because.. i can and... i really dont trust madou :D )
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 1:56 PM edit delete reply
Thanks mercy! <3

Actually, I didn't have enough panels to show it, but hopefully the later pages will express things more clearly... Yep, Madou is the one who sped up Lenna's return, but Madou and Lenna are strangers to each other as well. He only met her for the first time when he went to find her and ask her to come back to Erimia faster. You are still free to suspect Lenna of being secretly ebil if you want though XD

She is also a Green Mage like Ophelia, correct!
Seabiscuit 13th Nov 2015, 10:48 PM edit delete reply
Ohhh, she has a really cool design! Those glasses...:D
Omg, the way Madou leans on those two, hahahahah! Cain is so cute when he's nervous.:D
Get some rest, Rufi!;~;
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 1:57 PM edit delete reply
<3 yay, thank you seamuffin :D I'm glad you like those glasses, they're my favourite part of her design XD

Madou is always chillin' like a villain~ ;)

(And thank you seamuffin, I did, and will do ;3;)
mjkj 19th Nov 2015, 4:36 PM edit delete reply
They indeed look cool :D

1. Feel better Rufi!
2. Get your stuffs done!
3. Madou, you manipulative...
4. For anyone who might be interested, we will be starting a new RP on the Zetaboards forum for SF. The premise is still open for voting, so if you are interested make sure to swing over there! You'll recognize a lot of people who post here! :)
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 1:59 PM edit delete reply
Gah, Rob! XD;; I keep forgetting!! I'm so sorry. It's just been so... argh. :'D I hope it's going well, I haven't been able to check the forums for a while.

Thank you though, I am hopefully totally good physical-health-wise these days! It's now a matter of getting other things together...

(Madou just wants Cain to be in a better position to help the party ;) though arguably, because that benefits his agenda.)
HeSerpenty 14th Nov 2015, 2:16 AM edit delete reply
Ok new character is gorgeous and all buuut..... i don't think I trust her! I have a bad feeling about Cain leaving that important research with her! !! And yea... splitting up.... never the best situation x'D
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:00 PM edit delete reply
Oh dear, Lenna is earning distrust from her first page already XD;; must be because she was brought over by Madou, and Madou doesn't have the best track record, lol! And yay I'm glad you find her pretty <3 X3

Cain isn't making much progress on the research by himself so I think he might as well just ditch it XD lolol
sketchdoll 14th Nov 2015, 2:51 AM edit delete reply
I love the glasses! I wish my glasses were as sweet as hers! And splitting up the party= no good in the near future!
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:01 PM edit delete reply
Aww yay sketchdoll! XD <3 I am happy you like her glasses ;3;* <3

The party does occasionally need to split up so they can cover more ground individually :'D I can't draw them together all the tiiiime I'd diiie *sobs* XDDD
Jarvi 14th Nov 2015, 5:03 AM edit delete reply
Ohhh is that little cutie a summon like the summoner before had? :)
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:01 PM edit delete reply
Yep yep, he is! :D Ishi is a leaf sprite <3 ehehehe~ <3

*Pictures Madou herding her there with fireballs aimed at the feet.
'I'm being helpful :>'
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:02 PM edit delete reply
That's an amazing image! XDDD

Trust me on this though, if he tried to do that to Lenna, she wouldn't be smiling on this page. At all. XD;;; (I'm also not sure she would even be here. Or if Madou would be either. :'D)
kelverse 14th Nov 2015, 7:43 AM edit delete reply
Somehow I managed to forget to read this comic for a week and a half, forgive me Rufi....

I feel so bad for Nemi, I hope she's alright :<
And so THAT'S what Madou was up to...
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:04 PM edit delete reply
NO problem Rinkel-cupcake, I've been so bad with my update schedule as of late I'm pretty sure you didn't miss out on much!! :'D AND you can read this whenever you feel like it, I'm just happy you choose to spend your precious time reading SF at all ;3;* *huggles*

Also, Nemi... we'll get to her probably on Friday's update (if Friday's update goes up as it should :'D), I believe >3<*)/

Aaand yep! Madou was being helpful. Or 'helpful', depending on how suspicious you find him XD
Allzephyr 14th Nov 2015, 8:10 AM edit delete reply
Very classy. Also what's the deal with the spirits? Are they specially summoned or do they just kind of hang around?
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:06 PM edit delete reply
The fairies or sprites that are summoned by Green Mages have different contracts recorded in the discs. In Ishi's case, Lenna just keeps him out and about and expends a little Spirit at a constant rate to do so. Fortunately she has high enough level and experience at this point, so she replenishes Spirit faster than Ishi's presence consumes it, so he can hang around continually. You can also guess that he's a low-level summon, so he doesn't consume much Spirit to summon in the first place or maintain.

.... And that was Green Magic trivia for Serpamia Flare for you! XD <3
TheD-Wrek 14th Nov 2015, 12:18 PM edit delete reply
I think I'm gonna like her... <3 XD
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:06 PM edit delete reply
I had a feeling you might, D! XD
KAM 14th Nov 2015, 7:06 PM edit delete reply
And then it's revealed that Ishi is just a figment of Lenna's imagination when she's high. ;-)
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:07 PM edit delete reply
LOL, maybe all of Erimia is built with trees that release hallucinogens into the air, because everyone can see Ishi XDDD mass hallucination :'D

Attractive ladies are bad! Bad for your health!

... For mental health that is,but if you're looking for VISUAL health then she is good for ye.

Ishi is adorable. Yes I meant Ishi, of course.
rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:08 PM edit delete reply
LOL azure :'D gosh, I suppose they can be bad for your health... though that's very flattering for Lenna, she be happy you say that at the sight of her XD

And yay, I'm happy you like Ishi! <3 :D

Take some time and get some rest, my friend. It goes without saying... but you have enough of a loyal fanbase and supporters that they'd happily wait a week or two for you to recuperate, you know?

Also, excellent page! I really like the flow and as usual the dialogue, art, and mood are on point.

rufiangel 19th Nov 2015, 2:09 PM edit delete reply
Awww, thank you Outlaw! ;3;* <3 That's super kind of you to say! I'm super blessed with kind readers, that's for sure. Thanks so much for reminding me of that ;_;* <3 *hugs*

And as always thank you for being so encouraging, regarding the page! <333 ;3;* I'll keep doing my best!!

Always glad to see a page from Serpamia Flare. :>

Honestly I'm so sorry for the lack of consistent updates this whole month ;___; But thank you so much for your patience and understanding and for letting me know you look forward to updates!! That's the sweetest encouragement everrr afwururru *hug*

I look at Lenna and keep thinking that someone is giving Nemi a run for the bazongas. XD
