Happy new year, everyone! :)


I'm still kind of letting the steam escape the bonnet from all the heavy-lifting I did from Chapter Seven, mentally (and to an extent physically) speaking, so I don't know if I'll have any omake material in-between chapters this time. But I'll see what I can do.

At least, for sure, Chapter Eight will commence on the 23rd of January! So I'll definitely see you all then! :)

Have a bright and fruitful 2017, dear readers <3

Aw Lamelle!! ;v;* Thank you so much for catching up and reading SF, I'm sorry to hear that the end of 2016 was so stressful for you T.T I hope that you've had a much brighter start to 2017 so far! I can't believe it's already been a year since you've been reading ;v;* and yet it feels like you've been here forever, hehe XD <3

Happy New Year to you too! :-D

Hopefully work will learn to give you time to draw comics. ;-)

Thank you KAM! ^__^*

Ahahaha, honestly, I don't think I could ask any more (or less) from work, given I've still been able to update somewhat even with work :D I hope this year will be as smooth, if not smoother ;v;*

2016 has definitely been a very mixed year I'd say in many ways for me, but hopefully things will get better this next year we're in now.

Juggling a comic along with other things like jobs or school is never fun, but as you point out, it does make you look at time management and focusing on making the most of that.

Happy New Year to you as well, rufi!
rufiangel 20th Jan 2017, 11:51 PM edit delete reply
2016 was certainly a mixed bag for a lot of peeps I think ;v;* But I do hope that it's been a brighter start to 2017 for you so far!

I think you are certainly a rolemodel in the field of juggling a bunch of things at once, in regards to studies + webcomic updates - well done, you! X3 Let's continue to do our best together~!

Whoaaa it has just dawned on me that it's just barely reaching a year since I discovered this comic; it feels like way longer than that!
(Also apparently it's only been like a year and a half since I discovered that webcomics were a thing, which I find hard to believe x'D)

Happy New Year! I hope you have a wonderful year :) You've done an incredible job of updating despite everything you've had going on! Hope you get lots of rest and I'm looking forward to more SF adventures this coming year! :)
rufiangel 20th Jan 2017, 11:56 PM edit delete reply
Gosh, has it only been a year? O_O It definitely feels like you've been here for ages longer than that! ahaha <3 X3
(And wait wat XDDD gosh, I'm glad you discovered that sooner rather than later ;v;***)

Thanks so very much for your kind and encouraging words, Kat! I am so appreciative of your comments and support <33 ;v;* thanks so much for reading SF, and I hope 2017 brings much goodness for us all~

Awwww, this is so cute- And sooo pretty! Holy shit, that background!
Madou of course is the coolest one. Woah! ;)
Wow, that progress report, amazing! It's really impressive how you manage to keep up with everything, gosh!
rufiangel 20th Jan 2017, 11:58 PM edit delete reply
Thank you seamuffin!! ;v;* I did have fun with the background, ahaha <3 X3 (I was in one of those rare moods where I actually *wanted* to do it! >_>)
Madou is of course the coolest one, or hottest, depending on how you look at it XD
And I certainly have great rolemodels to look upon for inspiration in terms of keeping updates up regularly with Life™ - you are one of the best!! ;v;*
Thanks always for taking the time to read SF and leave such wonderful comment, seamuffin, they have never failed to put a smile on my face! You're one of the bestest people in general and I know 2016 hasn't been the easiest on you. I hope 2017 has dawned brighter for you so far ;v;*

I'm sorry I haven't been commenting as much. I definitely wanna say something now, though (better late than never?). One of the awesome things about this comic is all the extras you put into it, Rufi. Like Friday Flare and the art/mini stories between chapters and the alt text. Rufi, you put a tremendous effort into all this, and the payoffs are beautiful and awesome and well worth it! Happy New Year!!!
rufiangel 21st Jan 2017, 12:00 AM edit delete reply
Aw Digi, definitely don't need to be sorry!! ;v;* I appreciate that you're taking the time now to comment! It's always a blessing <33
Thank you for letting me know what your thoughts have been about all the other stuff going on XD;;; I do sometimes wonder if it helps readers engage more and it's very encouraging to know that it does! Truly, thank you so much for your kind words and support Digi! ;v;* I really am so thankful you're reading SF!
I hope 2017 has been good to so far <3

Hehe... Kylie as an ice user not as bothered by the cold as the rest is a really nice touch there. Great attention to detail! (^_^)

Best of luck to you as well for this new and fresh and around where I live suddenly snowy year.
(Seriously, it was as if 2017 came in and thought "What the heck 2016? It's wintertime! What where you thinking? Here people: Have some snow!" *woOOMPF*)
rufiangel 21st Jan 2017, 12:04 AM edit delete reply
Aww, thank you Lukkai for noticing that! XD Kylie certainly isn't quite as affected by the cold~ ;)

I know snow can lose its novelty fast for people who are used to it, but gosh, a snowy winter does sound nice XD; keep warm and toasty indoors though, Lukkai! ;v;*

X3 Thank you Mjkj always for your tremendous support and heartfelt comments, they are always greatly appreciated ;v;* I hope that 2017 has been kind to you so far!

(I would *like* to start considering print, but it take a while yet, I admit ;v;* we'll seeee!)

A lot of things about 2016 I'm not going miss at all, but some things I will remember fondly for the rest of my life. and one of those things is discovering this comic, and making friends with wonderful woman who creates it.

You are an inspiration, Rufi! Here's to a glorious 2017!
rufiangel 21st Jan 2017, 12:09 AM edit delete reply
Aw geez DLK thank you for such incredibly sweet words!! ;v;* I am very very grateful for your readership and have been very happy to get to know you this past year, too. Truly, thank you for blessing SF with your presence sir!

Happy 2017!! ;v;* I hope it's been treating you well so far, DLK!
