Thanks for reading, guys! And thank you for the well-wishes-- y'all know who you are <3. See you next week!

Folklore often holds real-world truths.

In a way, I'm sorry to leave the library. I was rather enjoying the backgrounds and lighting. I suppose it's a nice change though; drawing all that might get kinda tedious! :D

You wonder what's going to happen in the forest? You mean you don't know either? LOL XD

Indeed it does! And heck if the Council is the one who mandates the official records, then I'd say the folklre is probably MORE accurate lol

Haha interiors are still a struggle for me! Especially when there is special lighting XDD. But it is kind of a nice ambience, I suppose! Funner to look at than it is to create LOL

I'm tellin ya this story keeps ME guessing! LOL X'D ;P

Haha I'm sure that's in his subconscious at least! Some people just have such strange tastes :P

Awww! Yes! It was wonderful to see Bet and Abby interacting! :D Bet really seems like she's in her element, quiet but confident, and you've struck the perfect balance with Abby's expressions/bodylangauge...polite and pleasant, but still reserved and rather suspicious.
I wonder what's in that book...and how reflective the folklore is of the real Hellgiah. Intriguing. And I'm no less curious to see what's going on in the forest.

Hizruk's suspicious squint in the final panel is a thing of beauty. And Kilian...he's somehow even worse than Hizruk at playing it cool and nonchalant. Lol! Abby looks so perplexed.

(Gosh, you had a crazy week! That honestly sounds really scary. I hope you're doing better now!)

It's been a pleasure writing their interaction, though brief--- I love both these characters and they are wonderful additions to SoO! It's even better that you've both gone and developed them so much together-- LOVE having some this kinda texture in my story :3

LOL and yes...Kilion just can't seem to hide it when he's scared! If he and Hizruk were on an undercover mission together they'd get caught probably right away X"D.

Yess it was definitely unsettling... but it pushed me to finally do some things I probably should have done years ago so I guess all things work together for good! I'm doing much much better, thank you!

Forest? What forest? That forest? Nothing ever happens there, and besides it's outside the wall. Don't worry about it... That's the council's job after all.

Awww, now I want to do the pledge!!!!

Truth be told, I'm gonna miss the library too. I like the ambience, but more importantly you really have me scratching my head now on BOTH Abby and Bet.

I really want to know Bet's backstory, btw

Haha you're right...it will probably be a very boring scene of nothing exciting happening at all out there in the forest. JOIN ME NEXT WEEK FOR NOTHINGNESS! lolol jk jk hehe

I'm so glad you enjoyed this scene tho! I enjoyed writing each and ever scene in this chapter.... lol but there's a bunch that will be a challenge on the artistic end for sure!

And I'm also glad you're so intrigued with Abby and Bet! They do have a whooole backstory to each of them that will sadly probably never get known in the comic because ya gotta stay with that pesky plot and all that :P. But it does make writing them all the richer <3

If you want to read more about Bet, you can check out her original creator's original creation! She wrote out a whole backstory and everything!
See? Ask and you shall receive! (more than you bargained for lolol)

Wow, Lear-is-not-amused did a VERY thorough job with that backstory, and actually did very well nailing attitudes and motivations for someone disabled. I know several people in a similar situation (blind, one from diabetis, and now in a wheelchair as well) who just refuse to give up and accept "I can't".

You also did a great job of projecting Lear's recommended personality too. She is too well thought out and 3 dimensional to just have for 3 frames!

Kudos to BOTH of you!

Haha yes, she did! It's fun to see how different people approached the whole "create a SoO character" thing haha-- some were extremely meticulous and detailed in their character's backstory and personality and others said "Here's so-n-so and their basic personality and brief backstory DO WHAT YOU WILL" lolol. I appreciate both approaches! And it's even better to me when people get together and collab their SoO characters with each other, as was done in Bet's and Abby's case haha....because the story can't ever be ABOUT them but can sure be enhanced by them when they're in a scene together <3.

It's fun! Best idea I ever had lolol. THanks so much!

Y'know, if he weren't playing for the wrong side, I'd say he's not too terrible of a person...
