Happy Wednesday, folks! :) Thank you for your patience today - late update is late, but I'm glad I got it up at all XD;

When I told Cici-muffin (of From Dust to Ruination fame) I had to draw an elderly person for this strip and that I wasn't used to it, she advised me to give the person masquerade eyeglasses and a moustache for Instant-Elderly-Look™, so I drew said suggestions on top of the sketch I was inking and sent her the results.

She then proceeded to animate the dang thing, and I just had to share it with you guys. Because.

awwwww yeaaaah oooold

By the way! If you missed yesterday's update, please scoot back and check out the author's notes to get a look at the 400 strips milestone surprise :D <3

Okay, let's see if I can get Friday's strip up in time...! >_<)/

Have a great middle-of-the-week, and see you guys on Friday! :D

You're not alone. That's why you have an adventuring party! Everyone knows parties of adventurers can do what whole armies can't. YOU'LL BE FINE. Haha...

LOL, so true, Matt! XD that's how superheroes work, too...

To be fair on Kylie, she only said what she did because she was called to see the Elder alone. But the Elder only called her alone first, because if Kylie said she wouldn't do it, there'd be no point. ;)

"This is a quest you'll have to face as a pair. But one of you will have to be a fire mage."
rufiangel 27th Nov 2015, 10:46 AM edit delete reply
Ahahaha Lukkai, that would annoy Kylie so much XD she'd probably go find another fire mage if she could XD
rufiangel 27th Nov 2015, 10:38 AM edit delete reply
Yep! That leech guy is part of the party... For now, at least? ;)

... I wanna squish the elder's face :,D I feel rude but it looks so squishy <3 This page definitely turned out well, though, that's for sure :D

Miss Elder, please tell us about the key thing, we all want to know what sort of in-joke you and Madou haaaave :,D
rufiangel 27th Nov 2015, 10:47 AM edit delete reply
Ahahahaha she did turn out squishy!! XDDD I can't guarantee how she'd react if you did try to squish her cheeks though :'D

And yeah, if I think about it, it is kinda like an in-joke XD ehehehehe

Awww yay! Thank you sketchdoll! X3 <3 I always struggle with stuff and I'm glad when stuff I'm not familiar with worked out okay >3<

ROFL at that animated elder!

'Girl, don't you have friends with you. How dumb are you trying to be!' -elderly person, being elderly.
rufiangel 27th Nov 2015, 10:53 AM edit delete reply
XD I love it too, lolol!

And yeah, Kylie's now all annoyed cause she's like "then why'd you ask for just me alone, grandma?" lolol

(Though yeah, she was asked alone, first, because if she said she wouldn't go, there'd be no point >_>)

WAHAHAHA that gif!! :D :D

Yay, a new quest~ >D
Silly Kylie, thinking she'd do it even slightly alone at this point!
rufiangel 27th Nov 2015, 10:55 AM edit delete reply
Lolol yessss XD the gif made me so happy :'D so I'm glad to spread the joy!

Kylie probably only responded the way she did because she'd been called to see the Elder specifically, and alone at that. The Elder's response probably annoys her XD "Well, don't be so misleading, then!"

re: gif
Let's be honest: That's just Madou with a mask and fake moustache, isn't it?
rufiangel 27th Nov 2015, 10:55 AM edit delete reply
It almost always is ;)
MST3KFan 26th Nov 2015, 5:53 AM edit delete reply
Kylie, stop thinking you're alone! You have allies!

Though some are having issues with each other right now...
rufiangel 27th Nov 2015, 10:57 AM edit delete reply
Ahahahaha XD indeed!

To be fair on Kylie though, the Elder asked to see only her, first. Now that the Elder has said this, Kylie is probably all "then why'd you ask to see only me, granny -_-a" lol (though yeah, if Kylie said she wouldn't do it, then the Elder wouldn't bother with the rest of her crew :P)

Older than dirt, younger than an aquafall.
rufiangel 27th Nov 2015, 10:58 AM edit delete reply
LOLOL okay, she's old but not THAT old XD

Anjelians have twice the lifespan of the average human being in Archaeia, so make of that what you will ;)
Lukkai 26th Nov 2015, 1:11 PM edit delete reply
By the way: That's the same elder that was worried about Leela when the latter was living here, I presume?
rufiangel 27th Nov 2015, 10:59 AM edit delete reply
You are correct, Lukkai! :) Wow you have amazing memory <3
Lukkai 27th Nov 2015, 7:38 PM edit delete reply

I couldn't help but think up smart aleck additions to "I don't expect you to do it alone."

"You can take half a cleric."


"You can take the ashes of your cousin."


"Use those meat shields you came with."

Wooooow KAM :'D those are just.... Lolol Kylie would cryyyyyy!
