I sure hope we remember where that little note came from! I think it's about time we pick up where that left off, no?

Thank you, Keymen and Merek, for affirming that what happened in there is good for plot.

Kalverick.. being surprisingly not horrible in this page. Imagine that :'). Also confirming secret relationship

Thank you for reading!

Upon request, just a little update about what's going on in RL. I moved on Sunday to my grandmother's house and am currently learning how demanding the job of a caretaker really is :'D

In all honesty, I probably should have skipped this week's update but alas... I can't bring myself to do it. Plus I been dying to get to the scene that is starting!

I just thank you so much for all of you who've given me support about this situation and with this story in general. I honestly don't know what I'd do without you guys!

Please have a good and safe weekend! And I'll see you back here next Friday! :D

So many things all happening at once. XD

Kal heading out, Keymen and Merek sharing a moment of positivity, and Gywnn finds Keymen's left behind note for her at last.

It's finally happening IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING!!!!!

Also Kalverick as we've never seen him before indeed! That softness must be caked under layers upon layers of hardened jerk-ness!

Yusss!!! I can promise you that this (long) scene won't end before IT HAPPENING! Hahaha no more jerking you guys around! <3

LOL and yes.. it sure is! He's like... a jawbreaker. Takes fOREVER to get there but eventually you can bite him in half! I...don't think I got the metaphor right X"D

Yep... intrigue and awesomeness abound. Must be a page of SoO! :)

Kalverick is more than just a badguy after all...

That little "yes" moment between Merek and Keymen made me smile.

And then, the note... for some reason, I can't help but think "ruh-roh"...

And yes! He is! He'd be kinda boring otherwise :3.. BUT.. let's be clear he IS still a very bad guy! Lolol

We needed a "yes" moment to happen-- so many characters looking at each other with HORROR before this point LOL.

Hahahaaha is it time for some emotions? XDDD heheh

I'm telling you, there's more to Kal than we know! But I do think his priorities are a little messed up XD

These events all happening at the same time are an awesome way to sum up everyone's status, and I am SO glad we came back to the note! So much has been happening and this brief moment of happiness seems like the perfect time to get some romance on!!

YESSS I had to make sure we were all clear that that scene with Merek and the Council was indeed plot-relevant heheh. Stay tuned!

FINALLY back to the note! Next page we find out what the dam thing says! :D

Ugh that silent exchange between Merek and Keymen is so good and adorable. It was worth the effort, girl, I love it! And I'm psyched to see them put this positive turn of events into action. XD

Aww, Centy, all he needs is to be sweetened up a bit and he'll be fine... I figure we can do that with about 2 liters of honey.

We dump the honey all over him, then stake him to a fire-ant hill. No problem!

We could stake him to a fire ant hill in the DC world, but I Think we'll need more honey for that...

Bite through metal, huh? nothing that ingenious evil minds can't overcome! How bout this...

We fill his armor with honey, then get one of your anti-grav units to dangle him by his waist, just out of reach of the ants (except for the arms and legs of course), and then we kick back and watch to see how long it takes them to figure out how to get to the rest of him! let's do it for SCIENCE!!!

I'll bring the beer and popcorn!

Trust me, sweetie, none of us forgot about the note. In fact, most of us have been guessing that it would be making a comeback at the end of this chapter. 'Reunions' and all that. Or maybe that's just me. Who's to say?

As always, I shall begin with content, and end with art. Now. Kalverick and his secret sweetheart. Maybe I'm just bitter and picky, but that is NOT a full fledged hug. That would require more than just his hands on her shoulders. Gah. As for the secrecy... I suppose I can see the wisdom in that, given that the closer to the Council you are, the more likely you are to be burned, but... I don't know... Maybe I'm just overly suspicious of Kalverick. Not that he doesn't deserve it. >.>

I adore that bed though. Holy crap do I ever love that bed. I think it's the first time we've seen female serpents depicted in serpent decorating schemes. Go figure it would be on the headboard of a king/queen sized bed. Probably king. That's bigger. Oooh, and do I see it on the lamp too? Excellent!

Middle row! I know this is, in fact, good for plot, and I know it's the best possible outcome, but I'm still worried as all heck. They've given Merek SO much rope to hang himself with here. On an art note, lookit Keymen's li'l happy face in the oval panel~ So adorable~ And it's nice to see the outside world again. :]

Row three! Again. Nobody's forgotten this note. XD It's nice to see Gwynn again; I've missed her. :] I do want to know what's so important about twilight - the two options I can think of are her going out to collect Tia (and Hizruk.... if she can FIND him >.>) or just going back to that outcropping she was at the last time we saw a sunset in this comic. Either way, her plans are about to be disrupted.

The one thing I really, really noticed and love about this pace is the dichotomy between the bottom panels and the top ones. They're both homes, but Kal and Araena live in this very dark, not very hospitable place. I'd be supremely uncomfortable there; it doesn't look welcoming in the slightest. And then there's Gwynn's place, which really is a home. It's warm and inviting, and just very, very comfortable. It's such a nice, refreshing change from what the Council seems to think is necessary.

And that's all she wrote. Looking forward to the titular reunion of this chapter - and, of course, the reunions yet to come!

Omg Blue.. somehow I didn't reply tho this comment??? I'm so sorry! I'M GRATEFUL AND HAPPY FOR THESE I SWEAR I AM! (WeprobablytalkedaboutitinchatorsomethinglololI'MSORRY!)

That is a pretty great observation about the serpent bed! You are right..female serpent form hasn't really been seen much until now :3 (which is a shame in my opinion!).


Ohhh yes.... this is indeed a blessing for Merek and Keymen but "rope to hang self" is a good expression X'D. Gonna havta put faith in Keymen to keep a level head and faith in Merek to keep flawlessly executing X"D (flawless disregarding this huge mess with Hizruk that doesn't count :P)

I love what you notice about the difference in the two "home settings" in the top and bottom of the page! It wasn't necessarily something I thought of having with that intention but it was great to see the difference as it was all coming together X"D. VERY different types of home settings absolutely X"D. Of course momma-gwynn has to have a comfy, warm house for all the wayward kids she has/is going to have X"D. Just need to deal with the Merlock problem....
