Well, the informant needs to be dealt with for non-romance reasons. May as well start there.

Yes indeed! But the conversation Keymen wants to have with dear Zen is one he probably wants to have when it's lessss..... day-timey. Timing is everything! ;3

7th Oct 2016, 12:47 PM


Well. Thing is, the disaster is more of a removed type of thing. It's not personal in the way that Gwynn is. He's got a plan for dealing with that; heck, Keymen thinks so quickly, he probably has contingency plans for his contingency plans!

But Gwynn's the love of his life. Gwynn thinks he's dead. As he is very obviously NOT dead, this would be, what, at LEAST eighteen years that she's been left alone, believing that he's dead? He's clearly never told her otherwise, never gotten in contact - we don't know if he tried or not, but I am willing to bet on the latter, personally. And there's still a lot about these two that we just don't know yet, all kinds of details that are probably factoring into this... but really, it all comes down to the fact that Gwynn does not know, and he left her alone and believing he was dead. And that... yeah. I'd be scared too, in Keymen's shoes. Talk about a painful reunion.

I could babble about this more because painful reunions like this are one of my most favorite fictional things ever, but I'll spare you the commentary. XD

Loving the paneling! That bird in the first one makes me happy; no idea why, just does~ Also very much in love with some of the faces these two are making. You've got some very expressive artwork and I do so adore it. Third to last is my favorite Keymen face on this page and that last panel where he's refusing to look at Merek... ohhhh maaaaaaaan, can you ever feel the pain in that panel. I approve. 'Tis excellent.

If I've never told you this before, I love Merek's hair. So. Much. Messy fluffy bedhead~ AND FUZZ!

Iiiiisn't Octavia an OC? *checks* HA! I knew it! Kind of proud of myself for remembering that, actually. XD Can't wait to meet her.

Good luck finding your medicinal leaves, Keymen!

Haha YA NAILED IT! How'd you get in his head like that?? :P

Yes ALways Gwynn has had a poweful impact on him...whiiich is funny cuz usually HE'S the one with the powerful impact :3. It will indeed be (hopefully) really interesting when they finally DO reunite.

I'm just so happy that the expressions are giving the right impressions here! Your comments always make my day <333 Thank you so much!!

Haha and YES! We'll meet yet another OC! You have a good memory on ya hehehe <33

Ha! Keymen is one of those people (like pretty much all people, I suppose X'D) who can give good advice but can rarely take it XD

Why do I feel like these interviews are either going to be somewhat disturbing or utterly hilarious (money's on the latter though)?

LOL that is correct! It's so very rare that Keymen is on THIS side of the advice train X"DDD

ok, first of all, WIP? what did you forget to do? add the Baroque angels on the 4 corners of the page???? This looks awesome as it stands!

Secondly... I would like to refer to my previous comment about Keyman and Gwynn...

"Talk to Gwynn? NUUUUUUUUUUUU..... ...(mommy)!

Actually, I do kind of understand. Gwynn is someone who's good opinion of him actually matters, and they didn't leave on good terms apparently, so this is something he can't afford to make a mistake on. I feel your pain, bro...

Lolol! SO happy ya didn't notice! Though I finished it NOW-- I just had some character shades left :3

And yes you are absolutely right! The pressure is real for him in this situation. I think he'd RATHER deal with the council directly that face this...even as much as he loves her. It should be interesting! (I hope! :P)

After reading Lilbluebox's comment, it got me to thinking. If Keyman hasn't been around for AT LEAST 18 YEARS, and IS TOO EMBARRASSED TO TALK TO GWYNN (history), especially if he left ON BAD TERMS, it makes me think that Keyman might be (insert drum-roll)...

Hizruk's daddy?

We know about Hizzy's grand-daddy, but not much about his ACTUAL daddy (if I'm not mistaken)...

Ohohoooo an interesting theory indeed! The timeline certainly doesn't make for it to be an impossible one. Unfortunately I can give no clues as to the truth or untruth of this theory at this time-- we'll just havta wait and see! ;D

We will learn lots more about Hizzy's whole family! :D

I know, right? Hahahhaa now it's reversed and MEREK is the one doin' the prodding lolol

Keymen must have some complicated emotions going on :3

10th Oct 2016, 6:45 PM


Keymen, you might /give/ good advice, but you certainly don't take it! I'm sure he has very good reasons for putting off seeing Gwynn, but it's honestly just going to make the meeting worse. Whatever his reasons, I think it's pretty unfair to her to remain "dead."

Also, that last panel has fantastic body language! You can't even see Keymen's face, but everything's immediately obvious.

No reaction to that oh-so-casual question about "medicine." Huh, I guess even Keymen's closest friend doesn't know all his secrets. That's...actually very in character. I just hope it doesn't come back to bite either of them at some point.

Oh, I have some half-finished fanart of Shera and Jonathan that's stuck because I accidentally deleted the psd file and only have a progress png. I titled it something like "denial.png" on my computer.

11th Oct 2016, 2:16 AM


It absolutely is! So many complicated emotions are involved on both sides haha...and SURELY this "insecurity" thing is a feeling very very new to Keymen....who is mr. confidence LOL.

And thank you so much! It's always a challenge doing a backwards angle for me x"D--- so I'm so happy to hear it worked!

O man you have nooo idea how little everyone actually knows about Keymen--even the people he loves most don't really know much about him :3

OMGGGGG THAT FAN ART IS SO BEAUTIFUULL! Even if not finished I just love the concept and the composition and the sketch is so pretty <333
Seriously you are just way too good to me! Seeing this fully made my day thank you SOOO much!! <333
