At last somewhat of an explanation for something I've been asked quite a lot about and that's.. "How is Gwynn married to someone like MERLOCK??" and..."what's the deal with this family situation??"

Now for some linksies because my update schedule has been sporatic this season!

First just a refresher that Baeten is apparently the family name for Merek and Merlock's family -----> HERE

And then to the event that maaay or may not be the origin of this "promise" ---> HERE

MORE TO DISCOVER! But finally Hizruk is engaging in some information gathering before plunging into anymore problems X"D.

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

I had mentioned that updates may be sporadic throughout this holiday season so I won't bore you with my apologies, buut...I will THANK you for sticking with me!

Please continue to stick with me! I'm VERY excited for something Hizruk's gonna do in a few pages aaaand I think it will be very satisfying for those of you who've been with me all this time X3. I've said too much.. you're just gonna have to wait and see!

Ohhhhh it's all starting to make sense now! Haha, I had to read it like seven times, slowly, to let it all sink in about Merlock. XD Dang, I really feel for Gwynn. Well, hopefully she won't be stuck with him forever!

Hizruk may be on to something there.

on a totally unrelated note...
......has anyone ever told Hizruk that he's pretty? Because someone should tell him that

I had to read it a couple of times same as Alicia. I'm really dense about keeping track of familial relationships. I finally got it though! It's more complicated than I thought. It's good to see that Hizruk is going to (try to) be a little smarter! He's realizing that he doesn't know a lot about it and there's info to be had. The clouds are parting a little!

I like how you bring those different background views together!

Haha yeea it was something that finally needed to be explained. I knew that ever since that first scene in Chapter 1 between Merek, Merlock, and Gwynn (don't look at it..OLD PAGE, EW XD jk jk)

And thank you! Everyone's tangled up in this web haha...

WooHoo!!!! Update!!!! I know this is Birthday Row for your family, and then Christmas to cap it off with, so I was actually kinda expecting not to see anything this month! Take your time, Serpy, we're all right behind you rooting!

This is Kewl, actually, I WAS wondering how Gwynn and Merek where brother/sister for a while, and this not only makes sense, but it is far less convoluted then some of the theories I was coming up with, lol. Gotta admit though, this DOES kinda suck for Merek's childhood too. Gwynn the Ignored pawn, and Merek the unwanted blemish.

If we don't see you till after Christmas, Then MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! If we do see you before then, then MERRY CHRISTMAS TO US TOO!!!!

:-)

It's amazing how you remember haha! But that's absolutely true---I really do have a good excuse don't I?? You get all the bonus points for remembering my family's Bdays haha

Ohh yes. Merek did NOT have a good childhood in fact I'd say he had it a lot worse than Gwynn. She was just ignored basically..neglected. Merek went through much more torment :'D. As we'll learn later! :3

And Merry Christmas to you! I am aiming to update again before the New Year but there's no harm in saying Merry Christmas more than once! Haha

I really love that last panel.

Don’t take this the wrong way, but I tend to love when families have really messy beginnings, like with affairs and kids born out of wedlock and stuff. I don’t love the messiness itself per se, I just love to see that mess having a good outcome in the end, like the family eventually coming together in spite of all that. Does that make sense? ;) idk it’s just very touching to me.

Thanks so much Rose!

LOL whenever I read the words "Don't take this the wrong way" LOL I always hold my breath and brace myself for something but....haha this is great! Yes, I agree. They've certainly made lemonade with life's lemons. Ooof course the past few years they've kinda dumped the lemonade out on the floor if you know what i mean but now they can make a fresh batch.
OKAY now I've gone and made this analogy almost as crazy and muttled as their family tree x"D.

This clarifies a lot of my guesses on how this family got created! You should make a family tree when this is over, I think it'd be cool :)

Brooding Hizruk looks awesome in that last panel :D

Haha yay I'm always glad when I can provide some clarification. A family tree is a great idea! In fact I think I could do that now-- oohhh wait...wait no I can't. I have more secrets to uncover first :P

THEN the tree!

And thank you!

Oh my goodness. This is just much too much. I mean, we all knew there was a reason why Gwynn stayed. But goodness, this is a tangled web! And that poor boy is right in the middle of it. It’s like his life is the product of all of the mistakes other people made around him, and he’s suffering the consequences of their actions. I sometimes forget that Hizruk is still a teenager. He’s younger than me and he’s been tortured and mutilated by the people meant to protect him. And he’s totally right. After everything the council has put him and his family through, now he finds out that they’ve been lying to him all these years. Like, how much can a person take? Geez.

This is such good writing. I can’t wait to see how they handle their situation. Something’s got to give here.

Alston your comments always make my day <3. Thank you so much! You're absolutely right, somethings got to give! I think we'll see a bit of that in this last scene coming up ;3

Hizruk IS a little tortured soul who doesn't know much of anything. Maybe once that changes he can start utilizing some of that strength he's got <3--inwardly AND physically! :3
