Merek might love the kid, but that doesn't mean he won't yell at him.... oooor punish him--stay tuned to see what punishment Merek has in mind. X'D


OH MAN how I missed you guys and missed updating!

On record...that was the longest I've ever gone without updating a page in over 5 years X"D. But....I feel refreshed and don't think that will happen again for maybe another 5 years haha we'll see!

Hey everyone, and Happy New Year! I'd just like to share with you some of the beautiful arts I've received over the past several months because I believe they deserve to be shared! Here are some fan arts I received either birthday, or christmas, or exchange, or just because!

Just click on the thumbnails to see the whole picture!

Aaand some of you may remember the Holiday picture of Hizruk updated a couple weeks ago. Well I took it down for the story continuity but here's a link to it if you want to see it!


And here's my piece for the Christmas Crossover Exchange featuring Keymen and Gwynn and a couple familiar faces from another ComicFury original!

I see both of their points. But Hizruk? You should really think things through a little more. X'D

There's SO MANY PANELS. I don't know how you do it, Serpy! I wonder what Merek's plan is here. :o

Definitely worth the wait! This look like you spent 3 weeks on it!

Now I wonder what kind of leash Merek has in mind for him!

Hahaha I SHOULD"VE spent three weeks on it! Haha I'm glad it was worth waiting for cuz it sure was a long wait!

Double Triple page! Well that explains it. :D That was your longest break? That's pretty good if you ask me.

I see you were holding out with the fanart! Glad you decided to share! XD Some good stuff there.

Merek really does understand Hizruk. I can't begin to guess what Merek has in store, but I will guess it'd be fitting.

Hahaha "triple page" makes me feel a WHOLE lot better! I guess everyone reaches their breaking point!

Yuss such beautiful arts! I need to not let them pile up like that X"D

Haha you can be sure Merek has put a lot of thought into this X3

So Hizzy's gonna be under constant watch is what I'm guessing.

Would be funny if it was Tia or the girl that we saw awhile back excited to see him again. Though why either of them would be up in a tree...

Haha that is a VERY good guess!

Lol that would be funny! But then again Merek is looking to make his something Hizruk would NOT like too well X"D. Friendly company would not be a good punishment!

Awww good ol' Uncle Merek with the sound advice. Looks like he's giving Hizzy a "shadow" though? Juuuust in case XD The new Umbra uniform is looking very nice, btw!

And I'm so happy you're feeling refreshed and ready to update again! Us fans love that you keep it going, but don't be afraid to take a break at some point again if it benefits you in the long run!

Hahaaha that's a SUPER good guess! Hizruk definitely needs a babysitter x"D

Aw Proxy you are always so encouraging! I'm so glad to have a friend like you <33

This conversation has been a long time coming.

Hey Serpy, are your pages getting even BIGGER? 20 panels! I'd collapse!

Haha it sure has!

LOL yes this one was rather big wasn't it? Well I had a month of not updating to make up for!

Okay, so... it probably isn't... but if the rustling above Hizruk was followed by ZEN plummeting out of the bushes and onto his head I would burst out laughing FOREVER, probably. xD I'm pretty sure he's occupied with something else, though...

And alsooo Hizruk's face in panel 5 is a beauty! I love that scowl! :D There's so much great character acting and expressiveness on this page! It's great to have you updating again! :D

Hahaha DANGIT I wish I woulda thought of that sooner! XDD
But indeed...Keymen has Zen on his special assignment X3

THank you so much Juno! I'm glad to hear cuz it's been a long time and I missed updating! <3
You were always encouraging me to rest haha and like a silly Serpy I put it off until I couldn't no more X"D

Well! This conversation is certainly long overdue! And what a lovely page it is; the fog's disappeared, we can see the beautiful trees in the background (and that one fallen tree, I see it there and I love it) and it's such a great backdrop to this talking-to. Yeah, this isn't the kind of conversation they could've had in town, not with all the potential people who could have overheard it.

This talk... maaaan, it's such a good one to read. Both viewpoints make total sense, especially given what all we've already seen in the comic and what all Hizruk HASN'T seen. Though admittedly it does hurt to see Hizruk blame Merek like this. We know better... but he doesn't. Owch. And I think the accusation hurt Hizruk too - we've seen a few times that he still loves Merek despite being furious with him, and the panel after he says Merek's just as bad for not doing something when he could have.... well, the look on his face certainly tugs at my heartstrings. It's almost regret, but not quite. More like this is what he believes, but he hates that he believes it. He's got all these good memories of his uncle from when he was a kid, and now that's been tainted by the intervening years, and it's heartbreaking to watch.

Well, Hizruk's had the situation somewhat explained to him now. Will this help him think things through in the future? I sincerely doubt it. But hey, at least now he KNOWS what the issue is with what he did.

That last panel. The mysterious tree monster has been summoned! I am intensely curious; I can't even guess as to what might be going on there. Luckily, I don't have to wait much longer to find out. XD

The top two panels are great too. At least he was gonna go to class, right? XD Oh, and Killion's face. I do like that while Killion iss (understandably) terrified of the frontier umbra, he doesn't seem to have issues with Merek and presumably none of the civil umbra under him. Or the 'civil frontier umbra' as I guess we're calling them now. :] It's a nice little thing that just hints towards Merek's force being genuinely good people, whereas Kalverick's are... not.

Ugh, I can't pick a favorite panel or expression. Not this page. They're all fantastic. You've done magnificently. You even pulled off the finger whistle; I have no idea how you did that but it's WONDERFUL.

Although I do have to say that Merek's 'I can't trust you' face makes me grin. XD

FINALLY REPLYING! Lol I'm sorry about that-- such thoughtful comments warrant thoughtful replies and it's literally been hard to do anything like that X__X

Anywho!Hahaha yeeea Merek's been wanting to have a word with him for a couple chapters now X"D-- it's about time! And you hit the nail on the head! it's hard for Hiz to think of Merek being this way because he used to look up to him so much but there is a lot of anger going onthere. He definitely meant what he said....and even believes it X"D.

Haha and u are right about Kilion too! He's not afraid of Merek and his Umbras the same way he's afraid of Kalverick and HIS. Afterall Merek himself sat in on that first day of class and he didn't even break a sweat! That indeed has everything to do with Merek's reputation of being a just guy--- he won't take you down unless you deserve it

Haha thank you so much for the positive feedback! <333
