I honestly can't wait to see where this is going, where our contest characters come in, where Joan's going to put her loyalties - and what Drake's role is in all of this, because I'm sure he does have a quite important one. I'm not entirely sure what Theodore's role is, but I'm excited for that, too.

Ah. Well, Archie needs the outlet with this festival coming up. I really can't wait to see that and all the champions!

If you can get the edge sharp, and in this case it was magical enchanted not to break but even if you could just get it thick enough that breaking isn't a problem, a glass sword is terrifying to face...and yet horribly convenient for the one who owns it because the blade won't dull.

Awww, Mina looks pretty in that panel. Archie is the expo expert, ain't he? And politics are very good about driving things to Hell, it's just how they get you there that can be amusing.

@Onasaki: That sounds about right. He'd be right about it, but I can see why it might cause a rift. Personally, I think this is going to be more an issue of how their personalities changed under the pressure of their political positions. Also, Drake is, ostensibly, a lower-ranked dragon, while Mina is a very high-ranked vampire. Add into that the issue where more magical beings, like dragons, tend to look down on halfy-type creatures like vampires, it had to all be a mess.

@daidaishar: I know the story where Cinderella gets a glass sword. Intriguingly, neither implication you're thinking of happened. It was just a magical sword that happened to be made of glass, and made the sorts of wounds a normal sword was. Sleeping Beauty was a badass, though.

Everyone wanted a piece of their own territory. That's like the main aim of all post-apocalyptic scenarios.

So of course it broke down. XD

I'm guessing Mina wanted to preserve humanity in a sense, and Drake was like "Nope. They're nothing but trouble."

Archie, you gossip.

replies:
re man in black: both are very clear on their priorities

re Xylas_Incarnum: and their political pressures were quite nasty, as we shall see.

re Imola: He might be ok. Looks like Drake more didn't realize it was something he should mention instead of wanting to keep it secret.

re pfmoi: The gift box gets some suspense before its reveal

re Eva Emaria: a glass sword could either be terrible or leave some really terrifying wounds

re StellaFrost: gossip is his only source of stress relief

"Wait, they what?" is right!

Archie, you're oversharing a bit. Especially in a conversation when you're talking about perception to a MEDIAN!

Uhhh, Archie, you might be saying too much to the median. Tragic romances are a thing, remember? I doubt it would take hold in these circumstances, but still...

Also, that was a book. Jim Hines I think wrote it...? Some series about the fairytail princesses, I never read the second, the third was assigned reading in a class was a mess. First was good though. Cinderella got a sword made of glass, I was most amused.

@Imola Probably, but Drake will forgive him, eventually. I'm MUCH more interested in what's been sent as apology, it looks INTERESTING!

I expect Archie will get something on his head from Drake for blabbering. :B

... Not surprised on both counts. It takes a special type of couple to be able to get along well with each other and withstand this type of political pressure.

D: missed the Friday update. Going to try to make it next time.

replies:
re Stardreamer: ominous and delicious!
re Onasaki: I feel like the fluctuating temperatures make it worse. One day its heavy coats, the next, t-shirts or you die if heat stroke
re Eva Emaria: Maybe its a flower sword made of glass
re Imola: Archie is all about the manners
re Charoi: Going to try to keep the updates going
blackpickles: And most of my friends in other states are freezing, but that just makes me jealous. I couldn't wear my awesome Christmas sweater :( it had robot dinosaurs
re Allteair: I've also been working on it since I was in high school. I'm glad you've stayed with it so long.
re Charoi: oh no! I'm going to have to find my backup disk. Drake was intimidating the villagers into backing down.
re StellaFrost: Its good to be back!
re neonmalice: Thanks you!

Done
Huh, now I'm done reading this through.. I noted one thing: page 144 doesn't show up at all, or if it's only me (I tried several browsers though), so could you deschribe what happens on that page? ^^

And secondly, I fell in love with page 349. It just shows so well how the characters are feeling and what they are thinking, without actually saying it. That is one of the best things in comics and movies.

My vote is a sword or a bow. First time I've ever commented on your comic and iv been reading since I was in high school and I'm 26 now. Just wanted you to know your comic is wonderful. All good things take time, and I can't wait to see were this story will go. Good luck and best wishes

AC!?
It's been freezing for like the past month here with no snow. I can't imagine needing ac right now.
