Wonder what he means by "we got everything we needed from you" >__>;;

Uh Oh what's Keymen gonna pull outta that drawer?

Guys expect general weekend updates until I can get this chapter finished up here (we're on the last scene!). I just can't seem to get back on Fridays X"D
Sorry about this!

Why do I have a funny feeling that Keymen has a back up plan and Demas is gonna regret this visit? XD

Show him who is in charge, Keymen! <3

I agree with Alicia... Keyman has probably anticipated this conversation, and has created multiple scenarios in his head on how to deal with it.

Unfortunately, now that we know where Keyman get's all his cunning from, I suspect that Demas has done the same thing.

I'm tempted to say "Play nice, boys, or I will put you both in a corner so you can think about what you've done". Problem is, I think I would get halfway through that before the knife was inserted in my back.

I'll just sit here quietly...

LOL! yea...maybe best not to get in the middle of any squabble between these two xD. may not be a lot of physical warfare but a whole ton of psychological warfare....aand yes knives in backs X"D. It's interesting how finding out about ones family makes how they are a little more understandable X"DDD

Such a loving grandfather. Keymen must have had a healthy and well rounded childhood (end sarcasm)

It says a lot that Demas makes no effort to hide his resentment.

Keymen and Hizruk seem to have both lived such lovely lives.

At Hizruk seems prepared for this situation maybe.

I doubt Keymen is in danger at this very moment, but he really shouldn't be SO confident. Merek may be in good favor and in charge, but there are still many who would do the Council's bidding, I would think...

Also, this made me wonder something....if a serpent dies, do they revert to their serpent form or die in whatever form they were last in?

Hahaha yea I see what u mean! Keymen can be confident to a fault X"D-- perhaps that's when when he falls he falls hard? X"D

That is a good question! the answer is..they remain in whatever form they die in. the transformation process is purely physical..they have to put effort into going back n forth-- if any bone is broken in their whole body they can't transform at all X"DD. So if they die...they are totally done x"D (in more ways than one)

Haha well... he did mention they got something they needed from him before..which suggests that's why they didn't kill him...buuut you're right they definitely dragged too long on that x"D

Wow. I think Demas might actually win the 'worst relative' award. And that's saying a lot, because this comic is full of awful relatives. Let's see. Man kills his son, only regret where his grandson is concerned is that he didn't murderize him...

What a pleasant guy. I hope he falls off of something very high up. >.>

I like how Keymen's reaction to Demas just showing up here to be an obnoxious evil prat is to just snark. I don't think Demas gets it though. That whole "I have not come to welcome you" thing. Well, DUH. You've come to tell Keymen things he already knows, and threaten him which I bet he ALSO already knew, aaaaand you expected him not to be obnoxious about it? Have you not been reading the last five chapters of this story, dude? Your esteemable grandson basically is the reincarnation of sarcasm.

You have no sense of humor.

Honestly, I'm not sure what Demas is trying to accomplish here. His threat falls really, really flat. We already know they CAN'T afford to kill him - it's the Merek situation. Keymen's established himself as a miracle healer, he cured an awful plague, people KNOW him. You kill him, and literally the only thing you will accomplish is turn him into a martyr. Which is NOT a good thing for you guys.

Or for Keymen either, but that's not the point.

I mean you'd also utterly infuriate Gwynn and Merek and half of the entire serpent population... and something tells me this time, Gwynn would not turn to tears. She would turn to anger. And I really don't think you want that.

Anyway. My point is, Demas is awful, but we knew that already.

I'm assuming that his mother isn't an elite, which is probably a big part of what's got Demas so up in arms over this. I'm also assuming Daddy Dearest broke an arranged engagement to marry his mom. It'd explain a lot.

....This isn't a very nice society. D:

.........And Demas, by the way, if you were trying to be discreet about this (which I'm assuming you are, given that this is a clandestine threat made after dark, in someone's home as opposed to the big green stone fortress of doom) it might help if you took off the robes of your office. Just a thought.

Keymen's got some great expressions going on here. First panel wins because pout; that made me smile. :] And that panel with the little question mark, it's almost like Keymen actually wonders for a second if Demas has anything new to say - and then nope. Such a disappointment.

Fifth panel from the end is an amazing serious shot of Keymen. Definitely liking the way you handled his expression there. The complete lack of respect is both evident and perfection. Well done.

LOL it's weird I have so many awful relatives in this comic considering I myself have a pretty dam good family X). Buut yea Demas, Key-Daddy, and Keymen are about as dysfunctional as you can get.

Demas and Keymen share a thing in common in which they will go out of their way just to make their enemies uncomfortable lol--we see this with Keymen and Kalverick in the first scene of this chapter! There was no reason for Key to really do that except to get in Kal's head...aaand he did. Demas is now doing this to him......but he is not as easy to intimidate as Kal is X3.

And you are right Key's mom is certainly not an elite... but we will get more on that story to come X3.

Thank you so much your comments are always so fun to read cuz you put lots of thought into all the lil' details <33
