Just as a recap...here's when:

Hellgiah killed the baliath
Hellgiah cleared the path and
Hellgiah led Hizruk out of the dungeon

Finally he starts to address that "other form" a little. A form of pure instinct..hmmm. Kinda fits in with some of Keymen's observations earlier.

Buuuuuut....it's time to pause this scene for a little bit and catch up with some other characters!

-------------

Sorry for the late page guys---I had some drama happen with my program and files. Alas. BUT you're not here for my excuses!

Haha thanks for sticking with me! See you next week!

I'm not here for your excuses? What am I here for then? Oh yeah, the awesome storytelling and art! Seriously Serpy, no excuses are necessary. You said Friday or Saturday for the next month or so, and you made it, and even gave us a 9 frame page, when you were going to limit it to 6 for awhile! so don't say "I'm sorry", Instead, say "HUZZAAAAH!!!!". You've earned a Huzzah this week!

on the cover of this chapter, Witunderpressure posted: "Join me, and together we will rule the Gal... uh, the forest." It's amazing how appropriate that post turned out to be!

Hellgiah's right about one thing though. Use your instincts, Hizruk... right now they are telling you something else than what he's sayin!

P.S. A strangly wierd thought hit me this morning!

I Ship Hellgiah with... Noctis from Data-Chasers... (Sorry, Princess_LOM)

I was actually thinking about the Guest page you did for Data Chasers a couple of years back, and thought what your version of Noctis would look like giving Hellgiah a big ol' emotionless android smooch!!!

This is a HUGE Shoutout to Cent-Comm as well!

Hmm, DLKmusic, some matches are meant to be, but I'm not sure about this one. I can't imagine Noctis initiating such an action. Noctis is pretty pragmatic. They also have fairly different personalities and goals. She ddoesn't seem interested in vengeance or power for herself, but is more concerned with the well-being of her charges, whereas Helgiah is sort of vengeful in a way, and does lean toward gaining power.

That's not to say that such a visual image wouldn't be interesting! :D

Glowing Red Eyes meets glowing Yellow Eyes... It's as perfect as Col. Sanders and Mrs. Butterworth!

If her Loyalty to New Rome became Irrelevant (being thrown into this universe might do that), she would still look for a worthy cause to serve. Overthrowing the council for the good of Serpent-kind is the kind of cause she would consider Just, and Hellgiah's methodology would fit her... "Amoral" sense of efficiency.

I suppose though that on the flip side, she lacks a fun-factory, and is still more woman than this bastitch deserves!

Notes and disclaimers:
to Cent-Comm: please don't be offended by that particular Euphemism, cause the first tune I heard it was in your comic (IRCC, Ironically, it was Malati and Noctis).
to Princess_LOM: YES HE IS TOO A BASTITCH!!!!
to everyone else: If this post and/or euphemism has offended you in any way, please except my deepest apologies.

While I can see her aiding in the overthrow of the Council, I don't think the reasoning would stem from an amoral sense of efficiency. indeed her role in Decimus' ultimate demise was due to a high degree of morality. Consider that if her sense of efficiency was amoral, she would not have opposed Decimus in the first place, and would have simply and efficiently obeyed. :D

Actually, I was referring to This story arc in particular, which was prior to Decimus...

Bottom Line, I love Data Chasers, and I love SoO, and I want to give both authors a huge hug for keeping me entertained and thoughtful for years!

I also love both comics, and their authors. :D Entertainment that also makes one think is the BEST! :D

Oddly enough, the Aurelia story Arc in particular, is where I first began to realize that Noctis has a moral compass to go by. She was ordered (and would have been coerced by inhibitor) to carry out that grizzly affair against known subversives (this is her job, and she was ordered to do this); ordered specifically to leave no one alive, and believed that Aurelia was away for the night. Upon realizing she was there, rather than harming the child, she knocked her out, and carried her to where she would have been staying, because she was innocent. It would have been easier not to, but it would have been wrong. (Rose's original blog entry)

I wish to apologize to any and all for carrying on discussions unrelated to SoO and will refrain.

Haha I don't mind this crossover shipping! Lololol while i"m not sure their personalities would be compatible there's not doubt they wouldn't be pretty to look at as a couple :3. Hahaha I loved reading the back and forth! THANKS you guys! Haha it means a lot to me that you would even think about SoO apart from actually looking at the page! :3 That's all I could ever ask for!

You guys make my day every week! LOL no pressure hahaha <333

Thanks Serpy!

What's really funny is that megados and I usually completely agree with each other!

I've shipped some other SoO characters as well, but mostly in comic (most notably I ship Merlock with a Beliath), so you're safe... for now!

We do agree most of the time, and I still agree a crossover pic, or page or whatever you want to call it would be cool. I just think if they somehow did get into a relationship, they'd end up having what would probably be a nasty breakup! X'D

I agree, megados... as a matter of fact, I would be counting on it! (Hellgiah is undeniably bada$$, but my money is on Noctis)

Late-shmate! LOL You did say pages would be Friday or Saturday. By your reckoning, my comment is late, so "Sorry for the late comment!" :P

Helgiah has some points there, but there's more than that. The more I think about it, the more it seems that Hizruk is/will be more of a combination of Helgiah's strength and cunning, with Keymen's wisdom and compassion. Not a bad combo if you ask me.

Aw wow! Now you have me all blushing and stuff! That's high praise indeed! Thank you! :D

Yep Hizruk is sort of open to possibilities, but I think he sort of "instinctively knows what sort of person he is", like he notices what he sees as Helgiah's callousness, and it bothers him. (to his credit).

Another teaser as to what's up with those red eyes...

To what I said on the last page, I wonder if in some small way Hellgiah is helping Hizruk because he's finally not the only one with this power. Hoping to find some sort of bond?

I think you're definitely on to something! I mean afterall...he spent time with Hizruk all these years in the dungeon and who would do that if they didn't have some semblance of care for the person :'D. He could've just....left and came back when he got let out x'D

No comment about how Hizruk's compassion is similar to Alaya? Though it did end up leading her to an early demise and Hellgiah would probably want to prevent the same from happening to Hizruk.

Haha he might not have said it outright but i'm sure he's definitely thinking it! Hizruk's is more of aaa....stupidly executed compassion...which is even WORSE than ALaya's LOL

But that's definitely true!
