Garden of Hearts

by JigokuNeko
Alyn, royal guardsman to the elven Queen of the North leaves for a quest to the far south with his wise-cracking necromancer friend Skylar. They are seeking a long-lost magical talisman that could dispel the eternal winter of the northern lands--and just perhaps elevate Alyn to Queen's Consort after he returns a hero. To journey into the south Alyn will need the help of his childhood friend, Nirin. Only, Nirin is a lot more enchanting than he remembered and every step closer to the mythical Garden of Hearts is a step further from his goals.

story specs: light-hearted fantasy romance BOY X GIRL.

tech: hand-drawn, b & w, toned.

@Saku-Kohaya7kae: Hehe, hello again. I'm super happy you liked the oldies so much, given their art was kinda meh. I don't often check my old comics but we're having comment parties at the new one, which is Crescendo. If you're feeling generous and want to show support (for absolutely free to boot!) you can alternatively read it on Tapastic where they have an ad-based program for comic-makers.

I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Your stories are beautiful and enchanting, I am addicted! I love this ending... :) thank you so much for this. When I find my way to give support, I will buy a comic of yours!

(I am a working person, just don't have credit card yet. Which means no paypal as well. T.T)

I don't know if by now in the present, You've become fan of either yaoi or yuri so I apologize in advance... I mean no offense to anyone else as well of course!

But I really can't stand yaoi or yuri. It's also not that I hate it, I have friends who love it but in my case, I just can't seem to find it attractive, sexy, cute or whatever you name it... I just, no. Lol and the aggressive yaoi fans who attacks me when they see me pair with a girl their yaoi guy, all the more I feel away from it hahaha. (And I don't even use guys that are in yaoi, I take the ones from nonyaoi manga yet they make me feel like I am shipping something wrong lol) -.-"

For one moment, I thought that derp owl is a head of some random boy. The black above him looks like the head xD

Still it is as cute as ever! By the way, when you receive comments on your comics, do you receive notification? Or it only appears in comment section on your profile? I am curious. :o

Here in Japan, it has been like a decided matter that if someone suddenly had a haircut, it means she is broken-hearted. I am not sure if same goes for guys though lol

I am the same! My favorite characters(guy) almost always never gets the girl It's so sad! :(

That's why in my mangas, I promise to myself I will have the guy get the girl for once at least. Lol (or so my logic) xD

Web page design
The fancy 'fade to black' at the top and bottom of the page is cute, but it wastes space. On my browser / resolution it means I can't see the top and bottom of the comic page at the same time.

I would prefer less fancy, more practical.
Ah, I see, this makes more sense. I had been under the impression that Alyn had died and that the guardian had simply erased all recollection of him. I must admit I much prefer you explanation ;)
@Kiku-chan:
why, yes i am! i accept the title of official awesomeness :3
YOU ARE A FIREFLY FAN TOO!?
:O

If so, you are officially awesome.^^

@KermitsGirl:
teehee~ this gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling. :3
Lovesong has extra pages and is revamped from the online version so that's a bonus. Garden is like the online version minus the filler pages duhaha...tho i haven't yet received my own copy...sniff

so! one special thankyou coming up in the weekend. i can post it on my fb (Maggie JNeko) or send it to you via email (for it to retain the 300dpi file quality). note me here or on fb to get my email and tell me who to sign it to. :3

@sinker182:
see my last comment a page before this one :3
essentially, the guardian rewrote their lives...or you could take it as the whole "it was just a dream" trope.
