In the spirit of the Olympics, Serafine takes the gold for SoO's most Oblivious Character! Hizruk comes behind with the silver. The bronze is still in the air! XDD

Keymen and Gwynn used to be such good "friends" X3

But let's get back to that plot now, shall we? XDD


So far honoring the Monday update day! So far so good!

Gwynn: "Hey, we're 'just friends', OK????"
Keyman: "Whatever you say..." *snicker*

We BOTH know it will be IMPOSSIBLE for Hizruk and Kaleal to be kept apart.

Oh Keymen...the eternal optimist...although, I agree, I just think it's probably going to get a lot worse before it gets better >.>

I think you may be missing a word in that bottom right hand corner's word balloon..."you really (think) we'll find them in there?"

And I have a terrible feeling it's one of Kal's men who's watching them...

Haha some call it optimism, some call it confidence-- either way he seems pretty sure! X"D

Ack, thanks for pointing that out! I swear I read and reread the page and I STILL miss stuff! X__X

That's a pretty good premonition >__>

If there's one thing teenagers are good at, it's seeing each other when their parents have told them not to.

LOL right? It's like...they're BETTER at seeing each other specifically when the parents don't want them to X"D

Funny how parents ever think they can truly prevent teenagers from being together if they want to be.

I know he NEVER has a plan or anything! Totally not why he's even in this comic or anything! X"DD

Ohhohoho I think Gwynn would LIKE to ship it X3--- Kaleal would be the perfect daughter in law! Haha oh man I don't know if I want to get THAT depressing (romeo and juliet I mean X"DD)

I like Gwynn for not making a trashing rage about Keymen but just being reserved and reasonable with how she deals with it all :)

As always, good pacing and bringing the characters to life with pictures and conversation!

LOL! Oh man you almost broke my heart for a second there! *sighs with relief*

Thank you so much that feedback really means a lot! I want them to seem alive <3
They are to ME!

It has to be hard for Gwynnith when life goes against what you know is right. They will indeed have a lot to talk about.

Indeed-- when there's two right things battling each other you can't help but feel wrong X"D

Neku isn't wrong to want to protect his daughter....and SHE isn't wrong for wanting to protect her son's heart. Alas...too many grey areas X"D

I have a feeling the first thing Kaleal is going to do when she hears that she can't see Hizruk is to go see Hizruk
Just a hunch xD

"Congratulations that your family will be restored." If that doesn't speak oodles for how people feel about the education system for women in this society, I don't know what does. And I'm glad they feel that way, because I certainly do. Breaking up families to send young girls off to be 'finished' into women? That's a horrible education system.

'Little brother', Keymen? Wow. And THAT just shows how close Keymen and Kalverick used to be. It's like when you have a friend so close their family is basically yours and you can just walk right into their house and steal food from their pantry. Except in Keyman-and-Kalverick terms, which involves a lot more spine-shivers and personal terror, because Kalverick is TERRIFYING.

Ah, Serafine. Never change. You amuse me. :] And she DOES have a sweet heart, despite her more annoying tendencies. I can see why Neku loves her. It's always so nice when I can ship canon couples~

And speaking of canon couples, Gwynn and Keymen are certainly falling back into old banter habits without much fuss! 'Friendship'. Riiiiiight. Keymen, you two barreled through friendship on a runaway train going a thousand miles per hour and landed firmly in lovey-dovey relationship status in about five seconds flat. The which you know, clearly, given your extensive use of air quotes. XD Somehow, I think Kaleal and Hizruk's situation is just SLIGHTLY different than what you two had... for one, they're childhood friends. For two, Hizruk is completely oblivious. Oh, I'm sure they'll get there eventually. I'm equally positive it'll take a while. After all, look at all this plot we have yet to see!

And you two most certainly do have a lot to talk about. And I am STILL hoping for that slap, because I still think you deserve it. Though I suppose I shall survive if it doesn't happen. XD

Oh hey, it's a Serpy Scene Chance(tm)! With a mysteeeeerious frontier umbra lurking in the shadows. SPOOKY AND DANGEROUS this should be a Halloween page. XD I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that's Sid, seeing as he's the only frontier umbra who's been named and is in uniform and has a vested interest in finding Bleke, whom Barron and Ryder are looking for.

Also drama. Drama makes the Serpent Nation go round.

Art time, my word, your backgrounds never cease to impress and amaze. I'm REALLY liking the new direction you're taking them in, it looks so good. And the blurry background trick looks great; it's not as dark and as prevalent as it was on that one page where it bothered me. Great job!

Expressions and people in general on point, as per usual. How do you even DO that, you make them come to life so well. I adore Keymen's expression on the 'such a special, unique kind of 'friendship'' panel, maaaan, it's just so very him and I love it. Also, completely unrelated aside, I just noticed this morning when I was rereading the page in prep for commentary that Gwynn's wearing earrings. Oh my word. I'm so glad she's wearing earrings. Now I have to reread the whole comic and see if I've missed anyone wearing earrings beforehand; I had no idea earrings were a thing in Serpent culture and I am so glad that they are.

Though I imagine pierced ears would get in the way of a shift. Lucky Gwynn doesn't really do that, huh?

Haha horrible education system but it's aaaall about ultimate control! Easier to brainwash when they're separated!

Hahaha! Indeed as Kalverick's ONLY friend you can bet that his family knows Keymen pretty well! )and by pretty well I mean as much as Keymen allows them to know. Neku is preeeetty uncomfortable to be around him especially considering the turn of events between Key n Kal X"D

I'm so glad you're liking Serafine! She's not a deliberately mean person x"D. Neku does adore her-- I think they are officially SoO's happiest couple? LOL

Hahaha yea Keymen and Gwynn...let'sface it they were never friends :P. Hizruk and Kaleal are very different in that regards buuut I mean let's face it..... young girl keeps sending letters even tho to her it seems he isn't sending them back? Keymen knows love when he sees it XD. He knows they ain't gonna be"just friends" for long!

Haha I feel honored to have things called "Serpy Scene" X3.....that pleases me. LOL ya Sid is so far the most developed frontier Umbra but that'll change!

I'm SOOOO glad to hear the backgrounds are looking okay! I don't know if I'm just expectingmore out of myself or something or I save the BGs for last so they're stressful but I been feelin like the BGs have been suffering. So I'm so happy to hear that! So blurry trick works good with lighter BGs-keeping in mind! I do enjoy not having to do a full on BG in EVERY panel. besides in closeups that's just distracting anyway X"D.
Above all...the characters coming to life is the most important to me than all-- more than the backgrounds. So Thank you so much that makes my day!
HAHA i never thought about what would happen to earrings in a transformation! Thankfully the common serpent does't really transform anymore so I don't have to worry about that! X"D
