Ah, I really need practice with my writing, and when I read comic or books like this it reminds me that I need to improve, very inspirational, one of the reasons I love reading so much, it helps me improve, and I am sure that many many more also do as well, keep inspiring, keep being awesome, keep being you, as I have read through all of those 448 other pages and actually have been waiting anxiously for this one XD though I do get why it took so long, being as busy as you are an all the detail in these pages, it is quite astonishing you can pump these out every few months or so.
I appreciate the sentiment Joan was trying to convey, but being stuck in a weapon imbued with magical energy for hundreds of years would be hell.

I'm glad that it's just magical residue and that Lucien is in the afterlife...

I can't help but recall that dream Drake had after he told Joan about what happened to his family. Lucien didn't exactly seem happy about his actions.

Be looking forward to the email. :)

Man I love Bahamut whenever it shows up. It reminds me of the wind fish from Link's Awakening. I wonder, is Bahamut dreaming, and what happens if it wakes? Is it like a dolphin, with one half always being awake and one half sleeping. One's the mortal world, which is awake, and the other half is the dreaming world, which sustains the solofidians. That would make Bahamut a mammal though, which is of course, absurd.

Point is, poor Drake.

That's some good insight

Updates are still limping along. Looks like things are going to be pretty busy until the end of March, but things might pick back up after that.

Joan tries to be comforting with some platitudes, but it backfires.

On the plus side, some info about Solifidian afterlife systems. Tried to show a variety of species for practices.

replies:

re Xylas_Incarnum: he is very very dead.

re man in black: poor tragic baby

re Imola: its a fitting parting "gift" for a dragon, although Drake doesn't see it that way.

re Onasaki: thanks!

re Arrikanez: be careful Aylis, sad dragons are cranky dragons

re Eva Emaria: Drake is the edgiest of edgelords.

re doom Bubbles: gonna be... wicked sick... x_x

re StellaFrost: It has been a while since Drake's brother has been mentioned. I'll be sending back an email reply shortly :)

re Kadtie: thanks, I try to at least put some effort into faces on simpler panels.

Ouch. Salt in a wound.

I love their expressions in the first panel. You can really see what is going through their heads.

Ouch. That kind of reinforces what I thought. The fact it was his brother's death was a huge surprise though.

Sent you a reply back.

Lucien's final thought: Terminator 2 really was the best movie of the franchise. *Spear gains enchantment: 'Terminator 2'*.

...Not just dark. That's fell into a black hole, edgelord dark. Jeebus.

At the same time, uuuuugh, that makes his weapon so meaningful and ties it back rather than trying to tie another plot point to Drake, so really well done!

Oh.... Oh, poor Drake... -Hugs him, sends Aylis to hug him too... who probably does a much better job on account of actually being in his world to do so-

Very cool.

And yeah, I'm curious about that poor hopeless guy.

Well, that's sort of an "I'll always be with you", except reading this page it didn't feel cheesy.

Well.... Shit. His brother's broken.
Twice over, technically.

Eek, delayed again this time. Will try to pick the update pace back up.

You guys remember poor Lucien, right?

Joan was doing that annoying concerned hovering thing, so Drake decided to just air things out.

replies:

re Eva Emaria: it got real dark real fast

re man in black: Nope, it;s tied into his TRAGIC BACKSTORY

re Xylas_Incarnum: Drake would probably be willing to use cheap shots, but might not know too many since he's used to being able to just turn into a dragon if things get too dicey. Joan at least has her median powers to fall back on.

re Onasaki: I try to remember to draw it in whenever his forearms are bare (its easy to forget though >_<), but usually don't draw it if he's got long sleeves on. He could theoretically hide it elsewhere if he wished though.

I should check in on Kyle soon. Poor fellow.

re StellaFrost: got it this time and just sent a reply!

re Arrikanez: I;ve discovered that I don't have much flare for RPing, but the forum is still up if folks want to use it.

re Kadtie: I really struggled doing both fencing and kendo at the same time because the footwork and attitude are so different. Sensei used to constantly boop me over the head because my back foot would drift out of position.

Be still my heart! Oh I am so happy to see you back! I almost forgot how much I loved these characters. I just might go back and read it all from the beginning again.

My husband has been studying fencing and kendo and various other sword fighting styles this past year to come up with lightsaber fighting techniques for a book he's writing. He has had me help him test things a few times to see if they would make sense to someone, like myself, who doesn't know the first thing about sword fighting, and he tells me repeatedly every time that it is ok for me to hit him with my saber, but I still can't. I just don't want to hurt him. I imagine it would take a while for someone actually learning to fence to get over that.

Hrrrm. Something tells me that's not something Drake's just going to talk about. Something's up with that bracelet. Maybe something dangerous? Who knows.

Anyway - I did have a question. What about the RP that was going on between the people in the forums? Is there any interest in continuing that?

I think I see what you mean about my question about dragon slaying blades being answered...

I sent it again via email this time.
Onasaki

Y'know...

I read the backlog from the last fight with the Red Cross back up to now...

Drake didn't have the Bracelet until after they arrived in the vampire castle. >.>

EDIT: Actually looking back in the archives, it does show up. However, it's like the bracelet hides inside Drake's human form unless he wills it to be visible. Am I close? >.>

Also, Daidaishar, if you need inspiration to get back on a good schedule, after this chapter you might consider checking in on poor Kyle, and this comic's been going on for like... 12 years. Jeebus.

It's hard to believe the entire journey has barely been a few weeks, from the beginning of the comic.

.... I want to say the best way to deal with being physically weaker than pretty much everything you might be faced with is to be prepared to kill everything and anything with cheap tricks but that seems like something that'd require a drastic personality shift to learn.... and a far more scumbag type teacher to learn from.
