Happy Thursday! :D Oh my giddy aunt, it's been a month since I last updated on my regular update time! Yay! XD;

I've been thinking about Friday Flare lately, and I think I'm going to change it up a bit. I'm near the end of the batch of questions and pairing requests I received last year, so I'm going to go all the way to the end of that list before the change. I'll let you guys know the closer I get to that. :)

Alright, see you guys tomorrow with a Friday Flare! If all goes well, Monday's update will be up at the regular time as well. *^3^*

Zion's going to get the Lethian knight equivalent of the "birds & bees" talk. ;-)

Hahahahaha XD that would certainly be an awkward conversation to have with your guild master :'D

Oh, wow, so, the Lethian Knights are the keepers of the Lapia Oaks? =O

...looking forward to the friday flare =)

'Keepers of the Lapia Oaks' has a nice ring to it! XD;

Well, Zion, here's the thing... How devoted ARE you to our Knighthood? You believe in sacrifice, riiiiiiiiiiiight? XP

Hahahaha I started laughing hard when I've read your comment :D Good one :D

Heh heh heh, MST3K... ;D

It does seem ominous, i agree!

I think he is going to have to give up cake. Now that is a sacrifice.
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:17 PM edit delete reply
Oh gosh, I'm not sure I could bear asking anyone to do THAT! >_> That's inhumane!!
Just_IDD 11th May 2017, 9:35 PM edit delete reply
This goes back to Kylie recovering from her lcf problem, doesn't it? The part where she unlocks herself to channel massive amounts od energy. This is probably what he did to save himself and what Madou was hinting about saying that the princess is the key to his box.

Just_IDD, you're on the right track! :) I think I've definitely dropped enough hints throughout as to what exactly the 'truth' is. We'll see! ;)

AHHHHH!! NO!!! Then we'll never get to hear it!
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:20 PM edit delete reply
I honestly didn't think of it that way, but now that you mention it... XD

Though readers are definitely privy to all kinds of stuff individual characters aren't, I'll say that much! XD;;

Wait! I'm not a civilian! Tell meeee! XD

But seriously, I'm wondering what secret he must be telling. Like is this gonna end up being like Puella Magi where you're tricked into something with a terrible sacrifice? O.O And if mjkj is right and they know how to control Lapia Oaks, should we be worried that someone with a Lethiace is manipulating them? Hmmm much food for thought...
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:22 PM edit delete reply
I don't know if that cert/badge will work cross-dimensionally, my dear XDD but readers are still mighty privileged in terms of access in my books! ;D

I love Puella Magi Madoka <3 I mean, not to say it has anything to do what this... XD (or could it? lolol) (though if it does it's definitely coincidental given I watched it way after this was written fufu) (not saying it does though) (I'll be quiet now)

'You want me to do WHAT?!'
*Zion on finding out they have to pee on them and draw out the excess aqua though that as a focus.
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:22 PM edit delete reply
That 'truth' would be awfully traumatic for everyone all around Archaiea XDDD

Hrm...something to do with the lethiace?
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:22 PM edit delete reply
Everyone does seem to keep calling it a 'key' for some reason... -v-* fufufu

... I think the fact that I immediately imagined Ruthford doing an upbeat musical number of "Do You Wanna Kill A Zion?" complete with interpretative dance after reading this cinches how doomed I think Zion is XDDD

Do you wanna kill a Zion
So we can go and save the trees?
I know you think that's terrible
It kinda is
But you did sign up for thiiiis!

It only hurts a bit first
Like getting stabbed
By a Seia-dad

Do you wanna kill a Zion?
Cause that's how you kill a Zion.
Kill him deyd~
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:24 PM edit delete reply
Cici-muffin, homg XDDD I can't believe youuuu lolol *likes comment* XDDD poor Zion!

I wouldn't isolate Zion for death and torture and emotional upheaval though, if that's what you're thinking... ;D

Now I have the song stuck in my head, thanks a lot -v-+

A "key"... Hehe, I remember this sort of terminology....~~

The truth....?O:
Ohh, I am hype to hear this...
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:25 PM edit delete reply
That's right, that darn term keeps coming up again and again! I wonder if it means anything though. ;D <3

And uhmu sorry for being Obscury-Mc-Obscury XDD;;; but I think most readers are figuring it out! X3 <3

Congratulations, Zion! Today you are a man! Tomorrow, you may be no more, but today you are a man!

Also I loved Ophelia's *Huff*...
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:26 PM edit delete reply
Heh, heh, heh.... ;)

Okay seriously though, poor Zion, you guys. XDDD

And Ophelia gets lots of love, despite all she's done! -v-*

LOL that's right, no one (except Seia and Rince) knows that Kylie has not been where she should be for quite some time now... x'D

HMMM iiinteresting... although my writer senses are telling me us over here in the comment section won't be hearing the 'truth' for quite a while still... :(
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:29 PM edit delete reply
That's right, neither Seia nor Rince have reported her absence in Camden back to the Lethian Guild HQ~ -v-* Good thing those are the LKs she bumped into, out of all the ones she could've! ;)

Your writer senses are correct, Kat-woman! XD; I try to write by the rule of 'only reveal what's strictly relevant' - especially with stuff that gets convoluted or complex. So no worries - it'll all come to light when it's relevant! :D (Hopefully not too late XD;;;)

That 2nd to last civilian panel is just too cute. :3
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:29 PM edit delete reply
Lol D, I'm glad you liked it! <3 Ophelia is definitely a lot of fun to draw :D
Lukkai 15th May 2017, 11:04 PM edit delete reply
I kinda wonder if Kylie knows or not.
rufiangel 23rd May 2017, 5:30 PM edit delete reply
The answer to this was revealed in a later page, so sorry for my super late answer... :'D

The reason why she doesn't know can be easily inferred from the same page, I hope!
Whynot 25th May 2017, 2:24 PM edit delete reply
yes. the minor incident of almost dying.
rufiangel 25th May 2017, 4:44 PM edit delete reply
Yes, almost as bad as a papercut, but not quite. ;D
