Yes.. Keymen punked out X"D-- Little shout out to Octavia who's saying what we're ALL thinking in panel 7. Please forgive him (and ME. Mostly me. Forget Keymen X"D)-- I know we all hoped for the big moment to happen now, but..... well just think about how cruel that would be? Neither parties are ready at this precise moment X)

We just havta wait a little while more!! X'D
Oh..Hizruk's back! :D

THANK YOU FOR READING <33

Oh man...I don't think leaving her a message like that is a good idea. That's like sending her a text with lols and emojis.

LOL Keyman's one true weakness...is still a weakness.

At least he was able to go all ninja when he needed to. LOL

In the meantime, looks like Hizruk's got something bad brewing...

Keymen, you have (very good) reasons, but that letter is... Not A Good Idea.

I imagine Gwynn knows only slightly more about Keymen's disappearance than we do. And she thinks he's dead! A letter out of the blue is going to make her suspicious, definitely worried, and IT'S NOT GOING TO ANSWER HER QUESTIONS! Think about it: she'll get a letter with absolutely no details telling her that someone she was in love with, and the council /knew/ she was in love with is back from the dead somehow. With Hizruk just having fun off, I'll be amazed if Gwynn doesn't think it's a Council fake designed to find out whether she knows anything.

So yeah, BAD idea.

I think it's actually rather unfair to Gwynn that she has to deal with everything with only a quick note of "hey, I'm actually not dead :) " to go off of. But then again I don't see another way beyond just continuing not to tell her anything, which is also not great.

It's just a bad situation, and I hope it resolves reasonably well.

I whole heartedly agree! A letter giving this big news is suuuch an insensitive and bad idea X"D. BUT! one little glimmer of hope is that we don't know exactly what he put on that paper :3. MAaayybe he's a little more clever with it than what we might expect :D

But that is interesting the idea of the Council fake planted note thing! I wouldn't be surprised if she did think that haha.
Somehow things will work out-- I have a funny feeling! <3

Found the page I was looking for.

So the veeery last panel. Gwynn's face and line? That was me. My exact reaction.

(Also, wooooah, blast from the past, look at how good your art's gotten! I'm so proud of you~)

Here's the thing. As much as I really wanted the reunion to be now (as approximately every single one of your readers did), I half expected something like this to happen. And I am incredibly disappointed in Keymen for doing so. Do I understand it? Yes. Do I like it? Eeehhhhhh...

The thing is, this reunion isn't going to be easy. They will NEVER be ready for this. Gwynn certainly won't, at any rate, so Keymen needs to screw up the courage to let it happen, and that's tough. He's never REALLY going to be ready for this. Their meeting is going to be cruel either way - it's not the kind of thing that can BE nice and pleasant.

Softening the blow... whatever he wrote, I doubt it'll do that. At best, she'll be confused, at worst... well, angry and suspicious and hurt is the least of it. Given how badly Keymen thinks when it comes to Gwynn, I'm not prepared to bet on the contents of that note being particularly intelligent, though I will be most happy if they are, and I don't think it's a good idea even if it is just like a... a time and place to meet at with maybe a 'don't worry I'm a friend' type thing scribbled on.

Which wouldn't help either.

I honestly don't see any way that letter is going to make things better, and I see thousands of potentials for it to make things exponentially worse. The best I'm hoping for is for it to not change the status quo here. Because if it does... yikes.

(Please feel free to prove me wrong on this. I'd be perfectly okay with being proved wrong on this. XD)

Poor, poor Gwynn. And you just KNOW she spotted Keymen out of the corner of her eye in that first panel. She looks STUNNED - and second line of panels, having her hand on her necklace like that just proves it. I wonder if she's seen 'ghosts' like this before. Probably a lot, back when all this first happened and he 'died'. Kept thinking she saw him out of the corner of her eye, turned, and nothing.

That... would make a terribly depressing fic. I should write it.

In other news, Octavia is thoroughly unamused with Keymen's shenanigans, as well she should be. Fourth panel with her has the best expression, followed closely by that furious white-eyed look on her in her third appearance. And that first panel! Classic 'I didn't do aaaaanything' look and I love it.

Keymen's got some beautiful expressions in this page. Just as a whole. I love watching his face go through all these negative emotions; it works really well, particularly the panel where he's jumping over Octavia's counter.

Nice perspective on those boots, by the way. I am impressed!

And finally, oh, look, there's the main character of this comic, I was wondering when he'd be back!

DON'T LISTEN TO THE RED TEXT, HIZRUK!

Or maybe just wake up. I think sleeping in class is discouraged. XD

I actually really love his hair in that panel. Maybe because I haven't seen it in a while; who knows. XD Nice job!

LOL even before I copy n pasted the link I somehow knew it was gonna be this page and this panel hahahaha! I think many agree with this lolol. (you are so right the art really is VERY improved I can't look at these old pages without wanting to redo them X"DDDD)

Yus it is disappointing that he went and hid-- buuuut I mean on the other hand...she is gonna be PUNCHED in the face with this. Aaaand also.. he's never been one to do ANYthing when he's not ready XD. Selfish perhaps.. buuut it's just who he is sadly. BAD BOY!!

MAAAYBE.. just maybe.. his last minute light bulb moment here.. WON'T make it worse. Juuust maybe. We'll havta wait and see ;D
Haha and funny thing about all of Keymen's expressions on this page... I think it's the first one ever where his mouth is closed the whole time LOL! I almost don't recognize him! :P
That panel with the boot perspective..that was a tough one X'D. Thank you so much I'm really glad it turned out decently!

Hahahahaha I always miss Hizzy when he's away for a couple scenes! It feels like an eternity! Of COURSE he's gonna fall asleep in class :P

Thank you so much! <333

Never a good idea to put something in writing if there are people around that you don't want finding out what you said (like for instance... a husband?).
