That panel where the important looking person raises their hand to silence Merek is really cool! And Merek's reaction... is way less cool, haha. Try to be less suspicious, Merek!!

LOL poor Merek X'D. Hay he can't ALWAYS be cool! :P

Seriously tho, hope he gets his act together by next page! To his defense.. he hasn't eaten or slept since Hizruk went missing.... :'D (justkiddingtherearenoexcuses)

The old council lady member going "where have you been?" reminds me of Molly Weasley in Chamber of Secrets yelling the exact same line XD Also do I sense the Fire Lord aura over there?

Merek, you better be quick on your feet there, lest you be doomed.

LOL.... you mean old Council MAN? (with a soft jaw and stringy long hair X'D) lololol. I think someone else made a Harry Potter reference to that line somewhere! I'm afraid I do not know Harry Potter well enough to know this reference however :'D. Haha and yea, I realize it does kinda have a fire nation vibe, doesn't it? Hay its not MYYY fault the Council likes being underground where there is no natural lighting! :'D

Busted! Remember Merek, the best lies contain a large amount of the truth. Just think of it as "creative narrating".

That is so very true!! Let's hope he heard you X'D...

30th Jan 2016, 10:47 AM


That is one imposing council chamber! I love the lighting and everything in panel 3 (although I was a derp and thought the fire/wall portion looked like a pizza oven XD).

My bad feeling from the last page has just gotten worse; even if Merek manages to lie to Demas (is that his name?) somehow, there's just no way that he could work out his story with Wex & co.

And Merek, could you be any MORE obvious about stalling for time? Go lie about chasing a drunk or an escaped lacor, literally ANYTHING where your command can vouch for you!

Lolol EVIL PIZZA! THank you so much, I wanted it to be somewhat....affecting XD.
Yea there are so many things going on that could get so many people in trouble..... poor Merek is in a hard spot! And.. yea he's screwing it up a little bit right NOW, but.. i'm sure he'll bounce back! :'D

The fire is a nice touch. Very cozy. Erm...I mean intimidating! I mean, ah, eheh...
No worries, Merek, just say you had some thoroughly embarrassing medical condition to take care of. ;)

I suppose whether it is cozy or intimidating depends on who ya are! Like.. the Council probably finds it cozy X'D.......................... anyone else... probably intimidating! haha

That excuse could work! I mean Daggot is incapacitated and pooping his brains out right now.. .maybe there's a "bug" going around XDD

Blame it on Kalverick somehow!

Seriously, LOVE this throne / council room. (I was gonna say fire nation too). Looks amazing! Not somewhere I would want to be, personally lol, but very nice design. Fits the creepy council vibe perfectly - where they discuss their schemes to make peoples' lives miserable.

Merek is always cool and has everything under control. Watch him handle this just like he's handled the TONS of other things he's handled so far.

Great page, keep up the great work!

Haha it's funny you should say that! Kal isn't an innocent party in this whole ordeal :3

And thank you so much!! It was the panel i dreaded most on this page because the look of it is very important to me to get right XD

I'm sure Merek will get his act together soon enough!

Thank youuuu!! <333

Love the chamber of judgment, that is indeed a dark and intimidating place!

I think we can all be very glad we're not in that room right now xDD. Typically... if you're in that room and not a Council member.. its never a good thing :'D

And thank you so much!!! I'm really glad it's giving off the right vibes!

Great job on the page, Serpy; I love how we get the scope of how intimidating the council is, and everything - the mood and lighting - is perfect! X3

Man, Merek, you better come up with a full and solid story, FAST :'D

At this point, I am so done with the council. I know that Merek needs to have their trust for a variety of reason, but I don't have to like it. -_-

I really wish I could see this page animated. Something about the giant chamber and lighting just gives you the audio feel for this page.
