Happy Monday! :)

A quick throwback to refresh memories on what Jinn is talking about - I hope that's helpful~ ^3^

By the way... Serpamia Flare hit a couple of milestones that I want to celebrate - I'll try to get up something suitable on Thursday, because SF reached over 250 subscribers on CF (;v;***) and just last night, a patron raised the total on Patreon just enough to hit the goal on removing the banner ad - so you'll notice the Project Wonderful ad is now gone. Thank you so, so, SO much for your support, everyone... words are just not enough and I'm really just so grateful. ;v;***

I hope you enjoyed today's update, and please know just how happy I am that you're reading! I'll see you guys on Thursday <3


P.S. Oh nuts, I forgot to update Friday Flare last weekend, I knew I'd forgotten something! :'D I'll make two posts there this week to make up for it, sumimasen m(_ _)m;;

Awww... me thinks Jinn is gnna start softening up a lot more to Nemi, now that she's not fighting back against his jerkitude! TOOBADSHE'SGONNALEAVE QAQ!!!

But yay they are free! for now--somethin tells me that things aren't gonna be getting any easier! GOSAVECAIN! X"D

And congrats on the milestones Rufiiii!
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 1:47 PM edit delete reply
He's certainly at a bit of a loss that she's not arguing back or anything XD
And LOL I see what you're doing there, trying to pre-empt the blow! XDD Don't worry Serps, we still have some time before that ;)

And what could stop Nemi or Jinn from reaching Cain? ^3^ I'm sure it'll be smooth sailing from here, right? ;D

(And thank you!! ;v;*** I am super honoured!!)

When did Kylie lose the charm ring? Was it in the fight they all got arrested for?
xwindows 13th Mar 2017, 9:34 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, it was dropped in the fight; which Briar found it after the ruckus, and Archer correctly identified the blood crystal and its connection to Lyn.
KAM 14th Mar 2017, 6:10 PM edit delete reply
Thanks. :-)

@xwindows: Thank you so much for recapping that for me! <3 ;v;* Couldn't have put it better myself!
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 1:48 PM edit delete reply
@KAM: xwindows pretty much summed it up <3 I guess it would be helpful to link to the chapter recaps I do the next time I start a new chapter, eh? XD; It's hard to keep track with webcomics, given the amount of time between updates!

Awww... *comforts Nemi*

Stop being a jerk, jinnie... she was complimenting you...

Yayyy, Nemi!!! You found it... <3

I hope Archer still has time to explain what it did...

Re author notes: Oh, congratulations, Rufi <3 *hugs*

Lukkai 15th Mar 2017, 11:31 PM edit delete reply
Well, it did sound a bit underhanded there. So his reaction is understandable.

What really throws him off here is her showing actual remorse and not even trying to fight back (which she would have done earlier no matter whether she thought herself to be in the wrong or not).

And yes.
That is progress.
From the both of them.

@Lukkai: X3 Hehehe. I always enjoy reading your comments, Lukkai!
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 1:53 PM edit delete reply
@Mjkj: I believe this is what we call a back-handed compliment XD; like "Wow, nice jeans, they hide your bulky calves and how big your bum is!"

And thank you so much for your support! ;v;* I really appreciate it!

Huzzahs on the milestones :D

OMG they wrecked the jail! (Jinn you baby, that's plenty of space XD I like Archer going fwp fwp <3)

And Nemi, once again, you and your sticky fingers XD Archer's got some explaining, and hopefully it will lead to Lyn's freedom~
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 1:57 PM edit delete reply
:D Thankyewww <333

And yes, they wrecked it XD let's hope they don't have to pay for the damages :'D and yes, Jinn is being a baby but if you were just fried to near-death by those bars, I guess you wouldn't even want to be 10 feet near them XDDD

If Archer connects the dots, he might be the only one who can... so let's hope he stays safe and no one snipes him on the way back, yeah? ;D

Not saying that that would happen or anything... heh. heh. heh.

<333 Thank you, Headgamer (& Mizu)!!! ;v;*** I really am so touched and blessed by your support! Plus, the $50 goal to remove the banner ad was your idea XD so I'm really happy to have reached it! I hope the website looks cleaner without it -v- <3

AHHH we are getting so much closer to Kylie finding her brother! Or so I hope with the charm being back in party possession...see, Jinn? This is what Nemi is a pro at, and why we need her ^_^

Seriously though Rufi, the oh so close tension is killing me T__T
Lukkai 15th Mar 2017, 11:29 PM edit delete reply
Well I don't think Jinn ever disputed her skills as a thief... ;)
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 2:10 PM edit delete reply
She's a professional thief XD

Is it bad that I'm happy that this tension is killing you? XDDD <--ebil

(Thank you Proxy for always leaving such great comments <333 ;v;***)

Yay, milestones! XD

Congrats, rufi!

Jinn, stop being mean to Nemi! Nemi...keeping doing what you do with pickpocketing stuff. X3
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 2:12 PM edit delete reply
Thank you, MST3K! <3 X3 I really appreciate your support!! ;v;*

Jinn's automatically mean to her, he needs to really focus not to be XD

Hey, the "throw" command is usually pretty powerful in rpgs...
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 2:13 PM edit delete reply
I know, in SF, throwing things could really be worth all the Gil those darn things could cost! (And chucking all your old weapons instead of selling them was definitely a great way to use them XD)

That said though, if you only had two throwing stars and they both missed, you'd be pretty sad :'D
Lukkai 18th Mar 2017, 2:59 AM edit delete reply
To be fair, one of them did not exactly miss per se...
Wolfsbane 14th Mar 2017, 5:40 AM edit delete reply
I love it when milestones are reached. It's a real sense of accomplishment. Congrats!

Hmm, what will all of this lead to...?
Just_IDD 14th Mar 2017, 7:09 AM edit delete reply
Milestones are the best kind of stones.
DLKmusic 15th Mar 2017, 5:31 AM edit delete reply
@just_idd: Milestones are Awesome! But to be fair, Gemstones are pretty good too!
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 2:16 PM edit delete reply
@DLKmusic: I can't say no to Coldstone, either... <3
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 2:16 PM edit delete reply
@Just_IDD: Yesh! <3 Thankyew ;v;*

@Wolfsbane: Thank you so much! <3 I'm really thankful for your support! ;v;*

All of this is leading to... something-something. XD; All I can promise is... a touch of chaos :'D
Seabiscuit 14th Mar 2017, 9:06 AM edit delete reply
Conspiracy!! Or something.:'D
Gosh, good thing it all went well enough though...
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 2:17 PM edit delete reply
Conspiromethings! XD;; Welp, maybe! ;D

It really is going pretty smoothly for them so far, who knew a prison break could be so easy eh? ;) Surely the rest of this will go without a hitch!

Jinn. Behave yourself. ...Although Nemi DID start it this time, it's true *insert eye-rolling here because I can't find an emoticon for it*
Archer is not going to stand around listening to you guys insult each other xD

Aaaa we are getting so close but at the same time I think something is going to get in the way of the Kylie/Lyn reunion for some time still because... plot devices etc. :/
mjkj 15th Mar 2017, 7:53 PM edit delete reply
No, Nemi was just trying to compliment him - but in her klutzy way it came off wrong... =S
The Accidental Ninja 16th Mar 2017, 9:28 AM edit delete reply
The Accidental Ninja
Really? It seemed to me like she was being sarcastic... but maybe you're right? Hm
DLKmusic 16th Mar 2017, 11:49 AM edit delete reply
I think you're both kind of right, actually. I think Nemi was being sincere, but Jinn took it as snark and snapped back in "kind".

As General Patton once said... "Two people, divided by a common language".
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 2:29 PM edit delete reply
I'd like to say it was deliberate of me to have Nemi face away from the camera in the second panel, making it unclear exactly what intention she had in saying that particular line... but I have to admit, it wasn't XD;;; that said, though, now that the page is out, I don't want to clarify this off-panel. I suppose I can at least say that previous pages where Nemi interacts with other members of the party, versus how she interacts with Jinn, should make it easier to guess how that second panel came out. :P
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
@Kat: Ah, for eye-rollers, we've got image or image - take your pick! XD

As for Kylie and Lyn (not sure if 'reunion' is the right word, given they have never met, but I know what you mean! XD) - I'll just smile angelically but silently here ;D
The Accidental Ninja 17th Mar 2017, 10:05 AM edit delete reply
The Accidental Ninja
But I was rolling my eyes at Nemi (also at Jinn); I can't have a Nemi eye-roller! XD (those are really cute though xD)

Your very silent angelic smile is very silently confirming my suspicions. My writer senses are tingling... ¬_¬

Now for that snack. Get back here Chikin' Wings~

Milestones, huh?

Is this the time to break out the cake?

I think it is the time to break out the cake!
rufiangel 16th Mar 2017, 2:33 PM edit delete reply
CAKE! :D <333

I have planned a little thingy, hopefully it'll be fun XD (though possibly a bit laborious lolol)
mjkj 16th Mar 2017, 3:06 PM edit delete reply
The cake is a lie (cause she ate it - *points at gif*)...
