In case ya forgot (it's been a while) Mirabe up there was the unlucky gal the drunk frontier spilled his guts to personally-- unfortunately other people overheard X'D

Mirabe's grandparents actually own Hoak's (named after her grandfather). They converted it from a senior hangout facility to a bar as a part of their "end life crisis" I guess? Haha Nisha has worked there even when it was a Senior place and let's face it...thats HER bar XD. But Nisha is very protective of naive, innocent little Mira like a big sister.


Yessss another late page T__T...but..the good news is the pages should be back to normal size next week X"DD. Sorry about that!

Oh my, Kal...that was actually...quite civil of you XD Y'know, relatively speaking.

He's gonna regret pressing the matter though, assuming Mirabe tells the truth. Because it just implicates him, really...

Hahaha He didn't shove a sword through THIS one at least X"D

Lolol that is the beauty of this whole situation. Trying to impress the Council by getting answers miiight just backfire. BUT then again! I guess that depends on if lil Mira has the courage to implicate him to his face!

On a side note, Does she have to hit Ryder upside the head with a club to get his attention? I may have a couple of spares I can loan her...

Assuming she walks out of there ok...

Also, Pencil-Head McCheerios there might want to consider a transfer. From that look Merek's been drilling into his face for three panels, I really don't see his immediate future with the Umbra being a very enjoyable one...(;一ω一||)

(And Mira's so cuuuuuuuttte!!!! i think she just became my favorite SoO character..♥(ˆ⌣ˆԅ) besides Merek....)

ok i'm officially shipping them.

Hahahaha omg the names you come up with pony <333. Yeeeeeeeaaaaaa there's some pretty heavy disdain going on there between Pencil-Head and Merek. I think you are right

Awww yay I'm so glad you like Mira! I love her, despite her being a minor character <33. LOL! I wasn't expecting a Mirak outta this page! She has it preeetty bad for Ryder it would seem.. X"D

(Haha pony I always love your smile they make me laugh and smile every time!<333(

Huh, I never thought I'd say this, but Kalverik is oddly restrained here. For whatever reason, he's put getting the information above his usual, bloodthirsty instincts. Just a guess, but I would say that it's his proximity to Demas. The guy keeps him in line so very, very effectively that I wonder how delibrate it is. Definately wouldn't put it past him to have picked a young Kal out as a good attack dog, then sort of nudge him in the right, violent, direction. Maybe that's an element of the Kal/Keymen falling-out as well?

Mira! I'm so glad she's back, even if this uh, complicated, situation isn't the best place for a small fluffy marshmallow (what? it's the hair) like her. Side note: Barron is adorable in that "hello" panel. Kyle...less so, haha. Also Ryder is NEVER going to get a girlfirend at this rate, and it's not just the questionable personal hygine! (also that blushy panel is super, super cute)

I am very worried for her, but at least she hasn't done anything personally wrong beyond just be adorable and THERE. Not that I expect the council to see that, but at least there's a chance that they heap the punishment/blame on the guy who blabbed, not her. At least if the three consequtive panels of Merek doing his "pillar of glower" thing (plus bonus Umbra backup glowers I just noticed!) are anything to go by, there WILL be some sort of backlash.

Haha indeed! It would seem he's taken it down a notch. WHiich is good considering they day before Shera's escape the Council had warned him about making mistakes like this x"D.
Seems Kal-boy is finally trying to be more cautious! And it's interesting you say that about the Kal/Key fallout and the COuncil :3--- there shall be more on THAT later ;D

Hahha! Fluffy Marshmallow girl-- it's very fitting of her! She the last one who should have to go in there and face Kal's wrath D:. LOL Ryder...... he wants to spend his day off with a pretty girl and then blows one off that's totally into him :P. Buuut that's always how it is, huh? X"D
Buuut yes..this is not a pleasant situation to be caught up in! She can't "play dumb" as everyone else had..thanks to Peanukkle X"D. Buuuut implicating Kalverick's man right in front of Kalverick is not something anyone wants to do X"D

I'm not feeling too worried. It's gonna be no problem and she is not gonna let Kal crack her.
As said above, lots of great expressions on this page (and on the last page with the interviews. I was cracking up so much). Still very impressed by how much work you can get out in just a week, with these extra huge pages crammed with content. Keep up the great work!

This is very true! Buuut one can never fully trust that Kal won't go all "loose cannon" and take his anger out on someone innocent even without Council's order X"DD (like the civilian murder had been ordered :'D)

2nd Feb 2017, 9:35 PM


Ah, I see where Ryder's getting confused. 'Sexy' is not the same thing as 'adorable'. He just needs a little word switcherooni and a pair of functional eyeballs and he's good to go!

Seriously, Mirabe has the world's most adorable design. Augh, that haaaaaaaiiiiiiir~ Such a thick, loose, lovely braid~ I adore it. She's basically this eensy cute li'l creampuff.


Regardless, I will go down with this ship.

Ah, I knew Kal questioning Peanukkle would end badly. Still, I'm rather impressed by his restraint. No limbs lost, no blood drawn.... just some terror bestowed, but he'd be an awfully bad villain if he couldn't even manage that much. I've come to expect it of him over the past however many pages of him being an evil git that we've had.

Ah. more examples of Merek being very, very tall. Yessssss~

Honestly, I concur with the other commentators - Kal's probably not going to like what Mirabe has to say. The Council is already slinging blame around at anything that'll sit still long enough to be a barely viable target, and Mirabe's account will unfortunately smack Kalverick's brigade straight in the face with blame-mud. Which will not only make Kal very, very grumpy (and as we all know, grumpy evildoers are NEVER a good thing), but the Council's not going to be pleased either. Heads may roll.

Figuratively or literally. I'm not ruling anything out.

Of course, if they really want to pin the blame on Ryder and Baron for getting the newbie umbra drunk in the first place, I'm sure they'll find a way. They really like the blame game. And sadly, they're pretty good at it.

Overprotective Nisha is the best.

And despite not even remembering her name, Ryder looks suitably angry at how Mirabe's being treated. Good boy. There might be hope for you yet. :]

Basically my thoughts for this page got drowned in shippy feels, so...

Nice art, though. As always. :]

Eeee thank you so much! I'm so excited you have the shippy feels for them! I know I do >___>
But of course I am all-knowing, so.. I know what'll go down xDD. I will go down on this ship with you!

Haha yes Kal has eased up a little, at least for now. He was hyping himself up about Keymen being back in town having not seen him at all since...THAT DAY *dramatic music*.... but I think now that they've reunited and he's been properly intimidated, he's able to focus a little more. Lots goin' on in that evil, villainous head of his :3

Aaand its true-- if Mira tells the truth about what happened...Kal will not be in a good place, therefore she will not be in a good place :'D. Let's hope for the best X"D

Buut you are right they are pretty talented at mudslinging! No one's outta the flames just yet!

Yeaah, willfully conspiring to lie to authority isn't going to get you very far.

I really wanna know where this goes, now, especially because I still don't know if Hizruk's the one that killed the guards in the dungeon or not.

That is so very true haha :'D-- avoid doing that in real life! (perhaps I should make a disclosure "We here at SoO do not condone the act of willfully lying to authority" XDDD

I can't wait to reveal it to you guys!
