There you have it XDD.... probably the worst thing you could do to Hizruk without throwing him back in the dungeon.

At least now he can't make things worse!


Sadly I had to update with this sloppy WIP-- please forgive me! My grandmother was rushed to the hospital via ambulance on Wednesday-- I thought she was having a stroke X_X

Thankfully it was just severe low blood pressure that they were able to fix pretty easily and she's home now and doin' okay.

Thanks for you patience!


No longer a WIP--thanks for putting up with me, everyone! <3

THIS NEW CHARACTER I LOVE HIM. Every grin he makes is EXCELLENT! Also he was just hanging out in a tree, waiting for Merek to summon him? Even MORE EXCELLENT. I want to see more of this guy!

Also wow that sounds really harrowing, Serpy. I'm glad everything turned out okay. I've probably said it a million times now, but if you have to be late on an update due to life wildness, we'll still be here when you get back! This story is really great and inspiring, but YOU need to be in good shape, too! <3

Haha I am so happy to hear this! Lol this is Mylon's first scene where he's not swimming in a sea of other Umbras...and I think he did pretty good! While he's tailing Hizzy we'll be SURE to get more of him haha <3

And thank you so much <3. Yea it was very scary and when that kinda thing puts in perspective what's important in life X"D

I know you say it's a WIP, but I actually think it's kinda cool to have that textured background. Kinda reminds me of some older Disney movies where they actually painted the background and characters were in cel format.

So glad to hear your Grandma is ok! She's lucky to have you with her :)

Yikes! Glad to hear it didn't end up being serious with your grandmother.

Haha ikr? Who doesn't want to be followed around constantly by an authority figure that will report any misdeeds to an even higher authority figure? Especially Hizruk who never does ANYthing to get in trouble! Hahaha

Thank you very much!

Sorry to hear about your Grandma, but I'm glad she's OK! Stuff like that is scary.

WIP? looks like it's almost finished, so it's not sloppy, just needs a couple things yet, and being otherwise occupied, well you don't have to be apologetic.

If Hizruk wasn't so pissed off right now, he'd see that Merek really does have his best interests in mind. :D

Yea it was suuuper scary--- I'm glad it was a minor problem afterall X__X.

Haha and thank you for saying that X"D--- whenever they don't turn out like I want I always get super disappointed in myself X"D

And that's exactly right! Now nobody has to worry about Hizruk doing something to get thrown back in jail XDDD

Sorry bout your grandma, Serpy, but I'm also very glad that you were there to take care of everything! glad she's ok.

regarding the page, I was thinking that this coulda been a whole lot worse, but a little voice in the back of my head keeps sayin...

"Yeah, this isn't gonna backfire or anything..."

I do believe that no teenager in the entire history of teenagers thought it would be a good idea to be followed around by a cop wherever he/she went.

Thank you very much for saying that Don! Yea it was scary but it all worked out alright--a lot has happened since then X"D

LOL and you're right about that! The teenager cop thing hahahaha! Especially one that has already like you know... uuuh potentially paved the way for a big war to happen X"D. OOPS. KIds will be kids X"DD hahaah

Ah-ha! Merek's plan comes to light at last! It's a sensible one too, I'm glad to see. Sure, Hizruk hates it, but let's be honest, in this case, he kind of deserves a watch on him. How ELSE are we going to at least try to keep this doofus out of prison? At least he actually did something to deserve the consequences this time, instead of just being locked away for literally no good reason.

And he's still got freedom, he's just.... got a bit of a babysitter on him. It's not all bad, Hizruk, cheer up. And get to class. XD

I like that he actually wants to go to class. Sure, he might just be using that as an excuse to get away from his uncle - and he probably is to some extent - but I think Killion's friendship makes it a much more appealing place than it was the last time he was there. And hey, Killion being there gives him a secondary incentive to be in class. That whole protective streak? After all, the frontier umbra have definitely proved that they aren't above crashing class and terrifying his friend in the process, and Hizruk's promised to protect him. And it's not like Hizruk knows that Kalverick's squad is currently under Merek's watchful eye.

And... even if he did... and even though that's true... I'm not sure it would stop them from doing horrible things to Killion if they found out. Society's grip is strong. It's hard to break that.

All of THAT aside, watching these two fight is both entertaining and heartbreaking. Guh. You two need to talk SO bad. Sort this out please, it pains me. ;~;

Aw, Mylon's adorable. :] I'm loving his faces; there's not a single panel where he isn't smiling. Such a cheerful guy~ The 'tsh' panel's wonderful for a lot of reasons, but Mylon's the top one. Man, I just love that pose and the look on his face. It's lovely~

I.... should not like Merek's face in the last panel because he's SMOKING AGAIN but you drew it just so well. He's so fed up. Merek, buddy. It's too early for you to be this fed up. Methinks the boy needs a vacation. Spend a few days not tearing out his hair over various family members.

The second to last panel's got a great Merek face too. :]

Aw, and Hizruk's just an angry little cinnamon roll this entire page. I LOVE his expression in the 'WHAT...' spiky bubble. Shock is always a fun look on him. XD

It actually took me a while to find the differences between the wip and the finished product. Honestly, your backgrounds are top notch. I love them. Even the unfinished ones, I barely noticed they weren't! I'm not sure I would have if you haven't said anything!

I know I've mentioned this before, but I am so, so SO glad to see all the different plant life happening in these backgrounds. First the willow tree a few pages back, and now all these other different kinds of trees and shrubberies? It's wonderful, and such a lovely change from early pages, where the trees all kinda looked the same. This is much more real, I think. And I love the soft way you have of lining and coloring it, it sets a lovely tone for this place.

Haha yussss see that's the thing about Merek. If he yells or scolds or punishes it's always for a GOOD reason.....unlike certain other authority figures I know XD
And it's true! Could be a lot worse I mean what if it was one of KAL's men followin you? At least with Mylon u could make a friend depending on ur attitude XDD.

Yuss class isn't such a terrible thing anymore for Hizzy now that he has a friend <3. And it's true he did swear to protect his new friend! Can't protect him if you're not with him and where is he? Class!

I'm glad that folks are responding well to Mylon <3. He's doing pretty well for his first scene without a sea of other umbra! XD.
LOL "angry cinnamon roll"...I need to draw that. Like a literal cinnamon roll that's angry hahahahaha cuz i already drew a buncha Hizruk!

Thank you for noticing I do want to try to make my nature backgrounds more realistic. Forests always have more than one plant going on x"DD.

You da best! <3
