Apologies to anyone who thought Keymen was gonna pull out a knife of something X)

And the final page of Chapter 5! FINALLY, amiright?

Demas and Keymen share a thing in common.. they both like to get in the heads of their enemies. Like grandpa like grandson perhaps? But if you look back on the very first scene of this chapter.. you see Key doing this to Kalverick. That little frown in panels 6 n 7 is the main reason Demas showed up here tonight. Aah...family moments <3.

**
OKAY! So...as you know.. I have been really struggling to get back on the rails these past few weeks. I'm gonna take just ONE week off to get myself fixed--finish up that WIP page from a few weeks ago X"D, maybe do a special idea I had for you guys.........then after next week resume with FRIDAY SET updates once again! I'm sorry I've been so sporadic lately!

Thank you for your patience with me!

Ah...it's so nice when family gets along so well, isn't it?

Grandpa and grandson each planning something for the other.

Don't worry about things, Serpy! You know everyone will be here waiting excitedly for the next update no matter how long it takes. Get yourself all squared away with things and relax.

While a good part of me completely agrees with Cent-comm (Sulfuric acid enema... OUCH! where does she come up with this stuff?) another part of me wants to raise Demas's hand and pronounce him the winner of this round! It takes a LOT to get under Keyman's skin!

And, of course, both parts can hear both Keyman and Demas say "Stay out of this Lounge Lizard, or you'll be next".

I'll.... Just be over here....

P.S. "Keyman's Diary, no peeking. XOXO"... complete with a heart... Really?????

Kinda makes me want to know what else is in that diary...

"Dear Diary. All the other serpent boys and girls are really mean to me, I think they're jealous of my blue eyes..."

"Dear Diary, I discovered something really kewl today... Gwynn has BEWBIES!"

"Dear Diary, Grampa Demas farts a lOT... and they really stink! Just like Grampa Demas, hehehehe..."

"Dear Diary, I discovered something Horrible today... Grampa Demas has bewbies too! Ewwwww"

Wow, he really DID unleash all of his snarkasm xDD

Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems to me like Keyman has spent a long time just waiting and observing, and it looks like he's finally, after all this time, ready to take some action...

Omg! This is so jacked up. Totally worth waiting til the end of chapter five. Wow, Serpy, you can write the heck out of a story. Mad props! This is getting sooooo goood. ^_^

Hey, as long as Gwynn and Keymen end up together, I'm good, lol. :3

Did Merek expect anything different than for all of those men to follow him? C'mon bro, you're Merek. You're the reason why most of them have a purpose, bruh. :)

Hmmmm so his dad was killed by the Council...what about his mom I wonder? Hm, is Keymen a product of humanXserpent relations maybe? Hadn't really thought about it before and now I'm wondering if there's something I've missed?

So glad you're finally taking that break so you can recharge ^_^ And hopefully since the next page is a chapter cover, it'll be a bit easier for you?

Heheh well we did get to meet Keymen's momma in the beginning ofchapter 3 :3
But she is indeed a serpent! (you can always tell by the eyes..unless you're looking at keymen XDD)... and fangs!

Haha it's really weird not to be trying to update today... but it has been really nice to not stress so much about page for a week. even just a week. Hahahaha I am gonna probably be doing another one of my interludes soooo..its gonna be a real page--dernit! XD

So who volunteers to tell Keymen he's more like his granddad than he probably wants to be? Any takers?

Didn't think so.

Ah, the diary. I don't think that's a real diary, I think that's a spoof diary Keymen keeps just for occasions like this. Or if it's real it's full of bad love poetry. But I never expected a knife or anything of that nature, I mean, come on. This is Keymen we're talking about here. The whole point of this conversation is to frustrate the other person, not attempt an assassination or threaten the higher up you eventually will depose. A move like that probably would have, if not outright ruined his plans (because Demas could've outright arrested him for that) then definitely thrown a kink into them. Keymen's more sly than that.

Plus, the diary's hilarious. Bonus points!

Nice scene to end the chapter on! Good way to remind us of the stakes by showing Demas being an assbutt, and an equally excellent reminder that these are the two power players in this little chess match. Keymen's the one pulling the strings for the good guys, Demas for the bad guys. Really, it just makes it all the more perfect that they're related.

And then there's Hizruk, throwing wrenches every which way. XD That's the thing about pulling strings - you can't control all the pieces on the board. They're people, with minds of their own, for better or for worse. Which is of course where all the really fun, interesting, heartwrenching, hilarious bits come into play.

Art wise, second panel's great, mostly because I'm always down for seeing Demas be frustrated. And I know I've mentioned the design for the Council robes before, but those little yellow serpent eyes at the hood? Very appropriately threatening, which I suspect is the point. They hide their eyes, which gives them a certain anonymity and makes them blend into a faceless mass of oppression. They have more strength that way, you can't see any weaknesses they might have. You just see those narrowed golden slits on the hood.

And on my final note for this page, Keymen's eyes. Always a pleasure.

LOL leave it to Blue to call Keymen out for being a little too much like Demas AND also think his ridiculous diary makes sense xDD. But indeed..it'd be easy to kill Demas right here and now but that doesn't solve the LONG term problem/

Love that you made the connection that each of them are pulling the strings for their respective sides. Hizruk is a bit of a loose canon but we'll see if we can't reel him in X'D

Thank you so much! <3333 (And sorry it took forever to reply--- please don't ever think i don't adore your comments cuz I dooooo!)
