The Mirror

Graydon is tired of being treated like a nobody.

When the head of the Free Spears, the second most powerful group in the two kingdoms, offers Gray a chance to join, he thinks his worth is finally being recognized.

There's just one catch: Gray needs to hunt down a rogue oracle who has defected from the most influential organization in the world, but what she has to say may make him more of a somebody than he ever wanted to be.

Sometimes being a somebody can get you killed.

Yeah, speak plainly, stranger! What are you going on about?

For this week's vote incentive we have yet another concept design, this time for Akiyuu's friend, Zander!

The comic will delve into this more later, but since it might take many updates before the story gets there, I thought I'd do a teeny bit of explaining one of the lines on this page. Due to the ongoing war, there are more orphaned children than ever but less money that isn't being poured into the war effort. All but a few orphanages have closed down, and those that remain are overcrowded and underfunded. Instead, orphans are more commonly given to the Free Spears, who always have need of workers to cook and clean up after the mercenaries. It's hard work for a child, but many believe children have more abundance among the Free Spears than at an orphanage.

Now for this week's vote incentive! We have yet another concept design! This one is Akiyuu, an indie musician.

Looks like you're going to have to spell it out for her, random person. Viviana isn't quite getting it.

For this week's vote incentive we have another character design! This character is Shin, a fellow Delle meets in the virtual reality world.

Hmmm. Seems like this character might have something interesting to say! The young Viviana is ready to listen anyway.

I've finally got another new vote incentive up this week. It's a design for the same character as last week, but this time as her avatar in a virtual reality game.

Sandy's getting busy! Guess Graydon's got to entertain himself now.

A while ago I was working on more character designs for another project. I thought I'd share some of them here for vote incentives. I hope you find them interesting! This week we have a character named Delle Thomas.

Looks like Graydon is getting himself into some trouble!

Sorry for the lack of comments from me recently. Life has been throwing a bunch at me lately, which means I haven't been keeping up with vote incentives. One of the reasons is I broke my hand a few months ago, and even now I still have a lot of problems trying to move it. I have enough of a buffer of comic pages that they'll continue to update as normal, but vote incentives may be sporadic. My apologies.

I did manage to put together another 4-panel gag strip with an alternate scene from chapter eight, though. I hope you like it!

And on with chapter nine! Gray doesn't seem too impressed with Sandy's revelation. I wonder what the warranty on temple relics is?

For this week's vote incentive, we get another yonkoma gag strip! This one is an alternate scene from chapter seven.

And after the shock of last week's page, we move on to a new chapter! What will Graydon learn Sandy's suspicions?

We finished Toss & Turn last week, too, which means this week we get a new vote incentive. If you've been a long-time reader of The Mirror, you may remember some time ago I shared some four-panel gag strips (called yonkoma) that had alternate endings for scenes in the first volume. Well, for this week's vote incentive, here's a brand new yonkoma with an alternate scene from volume 2. Enjoy!

Dun dun DUNNNN!!!

And that's it for this chapter, folks! Be sure to take a gander at the vote incentive to see how "Toss and Turn" wraps up, too!

Subtle, Sandy. Very subtle there, with your wide-eyed stare.

Next week will be the last page of this chapter and, coincidentally, the last page of "Toss and Turn" as well! Don't miss this update first:

Uh oh. Sandy looks worried. That can't be good....

There's just a few more pages of this chapter left. And not much more of "Toss and Turn." Check out the new page here:

Now that they've both had a chance to relieve a little tension, maybe they can focus on the task at hand?

"Toss and Turn" is back on track after last week's announcement. There's only a few weeks of updates left.

Well, at least someone is trying not to attract the guards. For now.

I've got two announcements for you fair readers!

1) Don't be fooled by the new name and avatar. This is still Nokuthula. I just thought I'd change my ID to fit the name I use on the physical copies of my comics. I may be posting as Rei-kun from now on, but I'm still the same old me.

2) This is the more important announcement. Guys and gals, I'm so dumb. I have a large buffer of pages that I upload in batches ahead of time to make sure an update is never late. And I try to do the same with vote incentives when I can.

I had both the pages and incentives for weeks uploaded and ready. I thought I'd left a comment with a link to the vote incentive on every comic page here, but I just realised I'd forgotten to add a link to the last few pages.

So, just in case anyone missed their chance to get pages of "Toss and Turn" from the vote incentive, I've rescheduled the release of "Toss and Turn" pages, going back to where the story was before I forgot what the heck I was doing. Haha.

Sorry to anyone who kept up with the story despite the link issue, but I hope you enjoy seeing these pages again anyway! I'll try to get my butt back in gear.

Looks like Sandy isn't the only one interested in Lady Viviana's private mirror collection. What will she do?

In this week's vote incentive, Sandy digs deeper into her dreams.

Sandy makes it inside on her own, but will it really be that easy?

In this week's vote incentive, Sage makes a confession.

Been a while since we've seen the high temple. Wonder if Gray and the others will make it in time.

For this week's vote incentive, Nikolae's feeling a bit uncomfortable, then he gets a surprise.

Uh oh. Looks like these guys have more to deal with than a fuzzy thief.

In this week's vote incentive, things get a little active for Nikolae.
