Oh my. Kudos to you for being able to draw a spider like that. I'd not even be able to work on it!! My only real phobia, obviously. Nicely done. Great exchange/idea.

And yea... Keymen THOROUGHLY enjoys these types of things X'D

I dunno, with that pose in the end, I'd say he's more like a caterpillar than a butterfly.

And Jesus, the spider's markings are super amazing.

THE NERVE, amiright?? Stupid Kal just gets worse and worse XDD

21st May 2016, 3:21 PM


Some long-awaited answers! I'm really excited that we've finally gotten to the backstory.

Ah, Kal. Only you would MAKE your own spider-murder-show and have the gall to admire the entire thing. xD It is a really pretty spider though! I can already see why he and Keymen are sorta friends; the teasing interactions are great, and I doubt anyone less cavalier than Keymen would be comfortable around Kal.

The new (well, technically old) designs are nice! I'm guessing that Keymen's family wasn't nobility, since he's not wearing anything like Kal's fancy duds. And short clothes and no scars mean that's before whatever Kal/Council did to him.

I'm not too clear on the timeline here; is this before the Hedran-Hellgiah fight? If that's the case, I wonder if Keymen's scars are somehow related to that. There's no evidence, but I wonder if he sided with Hellgiah either because of his father's execution, or just because he thought the guy was a victim of council as well. If Kal sided with Hedran and the council (which I'm sure he did), that would explain both the falling out, and why only Keymen was badly hurt, since Hedran canonically won.

Yesss!! I have been excited to show a bit of their friendship for a very long time <33
Hahaha yea Keymen is the only person it would seem who could tolerate Kalverick as a friend X"D. Yess, Kal is definitely a member of the Elite class! And Keymen, well.................... he's not X"D. We'll have more on THAT later :3

Indeed, this is pre-scar Keymen! See he USED to like wearing them short sleeves and low cuts :'D. That is a very interesting theory! Tho the battle between Hedran and Hellgiah happened before Gwynn was even born. Heck, tho...I'm not too certain Keymen WOULDN'T root for Hellgiah if he had been alive in that timeline!
I am excited for the little dots to connect to each other as time goes hehe :D

Those are very pretty spiders and butterfoofoos <3 Though I don't understand why Kal doesn't wanna be a butterfly. Butterflies are badass. They go into a cocoon of acid that turns their everything into unitentifiable jelly and then somehow produce a butterfly.

Long story short, Kal would make for a very pretty butterfly XD

Actually, I saw a wasp getting out of a web once. I was impressed! I was looking at the fight, rooting for the spider and then the wasp escaped! Totally unexpected ending.

Okay, story time over, I'm going back to reading. =u=
