Merek, honey..... we all would REALLY like to take you seriously right now. But...... XD

Nah but seriously... the pressure be piling up on Merek here! It would seem Merek blames himself for some bad things :{

Also one more thing.. if you're wondering what the hell I was doing in paneel.. *counts* 6 with the faded out words--- its basically a conversation going on that has no real significance to anything, but my hope that illustrating how Merek is tuning it out will show maybe how stressed he is. That is my theory. XD. I hope it works XDD. If it doesn't, well too late. My bad! XDD

Have a glorious weekend, my friends! (WHAT an update on time? Why yes <3


O SNAPS one more thing I forgot... yay we get to see an Umbra Lacor (serpent horse). This one here is Barron's Lacor "Charles" XDD. Yes Charles. The armor is actually heavily inspired by a design Alicia came up with! Back when she designed Ryder's Lacor and I didn't have a design yet for what the Umbra armor would look like on one of them. I tweaked some things here n there but shout out to Alicia for her creative brain!! <33

Obviously Merek has some history he'd prefer not to deal with despite the fact it's been forgotten by others.

And perfect timing indeed, Barron You may have just got yourself nominated to be free slave labor for the day.

Yes you're absolutely right! He's definitely much harder on himself than others are on him-- well at least in his friend circle anyway

Oooh a lacor! I love those pretty creatures. <3

I really like the way Wex and Merek interact. They're so good at understanding each other and Merek (probably Wex as well) really needs a buddy.

Your expressions keep getting better and better! Merek's face in panel 7 is perfect, if sad. *shakes Hizruk* Stop making your uncle worry, you rash serpent, you!

Yes, thank you! I think you are right about Merek and Wex-- they both could use a buddy. They go way back actually! Probably Merek's second longest friend after Keymen :D

And thank you so much again <33... I love drawing expressions I think they are so important! Hizruk's MESSIN everything up! XDD

Awesome page, Serpy! I'm beginning to feel real sorry for Barron though... He's always there at exactly the wrong time.

(I know how it feels, kid, Honest).

P.S. I made my saving throw against Puppy dog eyes this time... Jules, Listen to your dad and GO HOME!

Hahhaha good call!! Pyppy dog eyes is a good trick, but.. not when it comes to keeping ya safe! Thankfully Jules has a lot of respect for her daddy-o <333

Serpy approves of this!!

Well so far I haven't gotten any complaints from people not knowing what the heck it means... buuut I also haven't been getting much feedback altogether about it. Tho I think people are seeing he's stressed...which is what I want! If you decide to try this little trick, well.. I approve!!! Sometimes characters say things that aren't important, ya know? llol

This is probably the greatest day of his life.
What a guy.

True Facts about Barron:
Barron once gave his left pinkie toe to act as a prosthetic pancreas for a diabetic kitten.
Barron remembers everyone's birthday.
Barron eats broccoli so that nobody else has to, and the broccoli farmers can make a profit.

Oh yeah I totally got the fading out letters dealio with the unimportant text! And I like that you could still sort of read it, because it added to Wex and Jules' characters!

I love that last panel though. Did Merek jump up on the Lacor to be able to reach Barron's armour?
