Hey guys, happy Saturday! XD; Thanks for your patience with these late updates recently.

The next update will go up on Tuesday, the following one after that on Friday, after which I'll be taking Monday (26th) off as it's the last Monday of the month - and then the update schedule should finally reset back to Thursday from that week onwards, if all goes as planned. Let's see!

I have a bunch of stuff to show and tell in the next update, I unfortunately have to run off now so I can't prep it this minute. But next update, watch this space! :D

Have a great weekend everyone, and see you on Tuesday! I hope you enjoy today's update~ thanks for reading <3

Yay update!

Your horrible translationing like that and leaving us wondering about Kylie. Masterful in drawing out the suspense, but horrible. XD

Looking forward to see what they do to the oak though.

Muwahahaha! >:D

I'm glad that you're enjoying(?) the suspense XD <3

Don't worry, we'll get back to Kylie! ... eventually... ;)

We, er, may or may not see what happens with that oak. You'll see. XD

Yanno, once upon a time, I updated on a M-W-F schedule... :'D lol! I'd love to be able to do that again... sacrilege though it may be XD

Hoo boy... Someone's past is again coming back to haunt them a bit there before we switch back to the knights and the oak tree thing.

DDPs (Deep Dark Pasts) have a way of doing that XD

Feel the tree. BE the tree.

It can be a tree-ky process...! ;D

Hm, so Kylie doesn't know, which mean she really didn't get what Madou

Poor Zion, he seems troubled. But taking it well, so I feel like that means it's a valiant/honorable secret? Some sort of sacrifice worth making?
rufiangel 20th Jun 2017, 5:23 PM edit delete reply
Ahh, yeah... Kylie is out of the loop. XD;;;

As for Zion, I can't really respond too much without giving it away, but I can say that he's 'gotten over it' faster than some others might!

Oh, evil cliffhanger...

...when will we learn if Kylie really was defeated or continued without weapon... =S

Hmmm, he still is quite smitten with Kylie it seems...

...and why does he reply in <insert name of spirit language>?

*hugs Rufi* thank you for the update =D

rufiangel 20th Jun 2017, 5:24 PM edit delete reply
The name of the spirit language is Laifen, for the record! :)

And the tree-possession begins...? (you and your cliffhangers XD)

I am very curious about that Kylie memory, though... there's not a whole lot about their relationship that suggests what could've made Kylie feel she's not strong enough. This could be their break up but honestly, could be something else. Hm...
rufiangel 20th Jun 2017, 5:28 PM edit delete reply
At least no one is literally hanging off a cliff anywhere, yes? ;D

This place that Kylie's at,
is actually the exactly same spot shown on this page, aroundabout the same time. It's the resort in Camden she's supposed to be resting in. I don't mind going into here since I'll probably never go into it in-comic, but the inference I was hoping the comic gave enough allusions to (but perhaps didn't, I'm sorry XD;;;) is that Kylie asked Zion to come back later, because she couldn't bring herself to talk about Halehurst. As to whether this happened during the time they were still in a relationship, or whether this was the trigger that ended it, I'll leave it up to interpretation XD; (I may go into that later, or not, depending. It's not strictly relevant though!)

In fairness to Zion, Kylie is definitely a girl worth pining over...

Problem is, this is an oak, not a pine.

(I know I'm gonna regret saying that... I Just know it).

It appears that Zion's weapon of choice is a poleaxe with a thrusting tip, so he is eminently well-equipped to engage in some Oakus-Pokus ("Abracadabra!"). ^_^

It's possible that, in addition to having absorbed too much Aqua, this Lapia Oak is infested with parasites. You can tell by the Lethians ('lesions') clinging to its side. ^_^

Perhaps, to drain the excess Aqua, the Lethians are about to give it a root canal?

Ah, you punny guys!~ *Love it!*

Some of those oaks were a stretch those. I would knot have used that middle one Gilrandir!
DLKmusic 20th Jun 2017, 7:37 AM edit delete reply
@Gilrandir: Zion's weapon is actually a Hal-bard, which makes him qualified to sing!

(Rock the oak) don't rock the oak baby!
(rock the oak) don't knock the oak over!

Amazing :'D just when you think everyone's exhausted all the tree puns, you guys just go ahead and prove me wrong by continually branching out...

I agree with Headgamer. You have a masterful sense of how to utilize cliffhangers/transitions efficiently. Transitioning to other characters at a time when there's so much suspense is horrible (what happened to Kylie? We've got to KNOW!), but masterful (Oooh, we get the chance to figure out more of the mystery surrounding lapia oaks and lethians).
rufiangel 20th Jun 2017, 5:31 PM edit delete reply
Awww, that's super kind of you, Digi!! <3 ;v;* Thank you very much for your encouragement! I'll try not to be too infuriating to readers as the chapter wears on XD;;;

Promise we'll get back to Kylie soon-ish! <3
