Looks like Keymen may have a job for Zen-- guess we'll havta wait and see! Wonder what it could be ;D

Omg I'm running late for work so I'll just have to update with links later.

It's best to use both the carrot AND the stick, I suppose.

As I understand, the carrot and the stick is essentially "reward" and "punishment", or in this case...

"give it to me straight or i bonk ya" Merek
AND (possibly)
"if you help me i *might* just help ya with that raise ;)" Keymen

just maybe ;)

Keymen strikes me as the type that could be a very good interrogator if need be.

Poor Zen is about to get paid a visit from 'Mom'. XD

He definitely knows how to get the best outta people!

LOL....that sounded scary haahhahaha!

Mommy Keymen to the rescue! You will eat that sandwich and you will LIKE it. I don't care how not hungry you claim to be. >.>

Gosh, this page looks great. :] And I love how Keymen just drops the bag on Merek's head. Yes, this is proper gift-giving protocol for besties. I approve.

The panel right above the last panel is probably my favorite, just because of their faces. If I ever need to describe these two in one picture, that's the one I'd pick. That's it. That's them. That's their friendship. It's fantastic.

The dialogue in particular makes me super happy on this page. Just well done as a whole here. I love it all. :]

Hahahaha should Keymen join the running for SoO's best Mom award? LOL! Psh that Merek will let himself STARVE to death if left to his own devices!

Haha and you know what, you're right! Those panels pretty much DO represent their friendship to a T XDD. Thank you so much, truly! I always feel so motivated when I read your comments!!

Ok, I feel a lot better about Zen's fate... err Future now! Who knows, Maybe Kayman will send him out to get some of his healing leaves!

Great page as always, Serpy!

LOL it seems a lot more safe when we see that Keymen has a use for him hahaha. Although I'm over here so happily entertained by how many people are/were scared for Zen hehe. So very happy <33 :3

Thanks so much!

The only other mom that could have made it, IMHO, is Gwynnith. Of course, I don't believe that she and KeyMom have met each other in the present (in-comic, that is) yet...

Haha I would be really interested to see KeyMom and Gwynn compete for SoO's greatest mother XDD

And no they haven't! Judging by the cover...that may or may not be in the works :3

Hello! Discovered this recently (came over from Serpamia Flare to check it out), and I must say... Keymen is awesome. That is all. xD
Also though, I'm very impressed by your colouring and shading skills-- the pages look so vibrant! Also the lighting. Especially the lighting. Wow.

Aw thank you so much, this totally makes my day! I work super hard on this thing lolol. As for Keymen... well he's a "key" character to this thing (:P) so he will be around a LOT! :D :D
And I'm SUPER excited that you like him!

page 5.16 -- Keymen is a good friend

I love Merek's grumpiness about everything. There's a good reason for it, obviously, but it's still funny. But Keymen's right; he should eat/take care of himself. I'm pretty sure this is the last rest he's going to get for a while before Kalavarik comes back and all hell breaks loose.

Art-wise, I love all of Keymen's gestures here, especially the one in panel 9. The last panel is gorgeous as well.

Haha that IS a good alternate title <33

Hahaha Merek's grumpiness is a good balance with Keymen's confidence and optimism. Yes--- he needs to be functioning well to put up with all the trouble brewing!

And thank you so much I'm glad to hear!!! <3333

I am eager to delve more into their history--- they really do mean a lot to one another!

And indeed..Merek is X'D. He's been the one to bear the brunt of the punishment so far...

Hehe. Keymen using Zen would be everything. I think that if they did work together, their giddy personalities would probably collectively explode the sun. XD

Geez, Serpy. My finger hurts from all that scrolling I had to do to get through all of these comments. Darn your popularity! Hehe. Just kidding. You deserve it! :D:D:D
