Space rock from outside the system?
Yeah, that would cause a power outage, I think!

This page isn't pretty, but it looks good!
Good enough to come back from a 2 week unexpected hiatus!
Glad to be back! Here's to more pages more promptly!

SDG, everyone.
They do so love their back-and-forth...
Regardless of it's actual composition, Engine oil in the mouth is gross period.
There's a pretty recent re-design to that actually.
I eventually figured that the length of the claws was kind of ridiculous, so I've shortened them.
They may be subteranian alien kangaroos, but they're not moles. :)
She's my favorite too. :)
Unfortunately if you book at further pages, you will not find a single
It was a missed oppapertunity...

Red Panda Robot Jean looks like she's riding a brand new sports car.
She's quite a bit more responsible than most in an actual sports car though.

SDG, everyone.
You do need to make sure you've got the
full story before stripping someone down
to their fuzz...
@MviluUatusun: g
...Sort of.
More like Septulianism does not have all
the answers...
Why make a robot when you can make a furry, hugable robot?

This is a red panda robot.
You're welcome.

SDG, everyone.
Good thing she declined the piggyback ride. His wife would be jealous-
She'd be tempted to snatch Yamri away from him!
Embis are like that though. If someone is being cuddled, the one that isn't
giving the cuddles is likely to want to try to change that in their favor.

Aaaaaaaah, it feels good to be back!
Those of you following me on Twitter probably noticed I've been drawing quite a bit outside of VHV as well. I've had a bit
of an explosion of inspiration, and drawn a few characters I've never drawn before! While none of them were mine this week,
drawing other people's stuff is great practice in general and also great fun.

I'm going to mostly shut up down here for the next segment of this comic, as I want to see if I have the confidence to let my
pictures do the talking. I am, after all, writing a comic, not a book. Too much talking can be ridiculous.

SDG, everyone, and here's to a new bout of timely updates!

It was kind of lousy, yeah.
Welcome to VHV: A webcomic where the author likes fluff so much he decides to make a beast
that is pretty much ALL fluff... With unusual access point!

Common adventurer sense tells you not to ever let anything eat you, but it also tells you that it's okay if you fail in that regard.
You can live on with a piece missing, or in Sam's case at the beginning of the story, you can make your way back out of a nasty
loud purple lizard if you need to. In fact, being ingested in totality is a pretty regular thing among adventurers, though you won't
hear it on the brochures.
An experienced adventurer will tell you any particular creature's innards have a bizarrely wide range of comfort, and while
most simply err on the low end at “worrisome and icky”, Rose is definitely on the high end of that scale. “fur all the way down”
rings true for her species as she does not have a true stomach. All digestion is conducted with low level thaumic
transmutation triggered at will to save on energy. She cannot taste and can only smell things about as well as the weak human
nose, so her palette isn't exactly refined. However, her species do find their furry tums useful for carrying things generally not
moving, and in a pinch can warm someone up without the need to cut a large hole in a freshly dead monster. Hence their
name- “Furtum”.
(“Fur-bag” as a name was tested by one scientist early on but quickly put to a stop by his peers- Not because of the potential
offense, but due to the inaccuracy of comparing a vestigial, re-purposed digestive system to a bag of any sort)
Rose, of course, has to live with an embis high on cuddly-ness. So despite her preferences, she often has to put up with her
friend entering her "inner sanctum" to indeed take a nap as Edrin theorizes. A furtum gets used to it though.

I was worried about adding Rose to my story for a while until I realized that I've drawn similarly weird already without worry-
Butter's pouch and Aloene's everything, for example. Also, this universe has sentient sadistic bipedal mushrooms, so I think
I'm in the clear.
Demitia can still be uncomfortable, of course... But she has had no experience with Rose, unlike myself.

SDG, everyone.

What may have happened is that I decided to stop allowing guest comments- Someone
thought they were being helpful by stating a problem I was aware I had over and over
in various comics. That is why we can't have nice things.
Well, when your daughter was the kind of
child to always be defiant and naughty when younger, no matter how good she is
now you're going to be suspicious of
just about everything she does...

Welc' for the enjoy. :]
@MviluUatusun: Being chosen as a representative is like jury duty, except
people actually wish it would happen instead of dread it.
Kind of surprised I haven't really drawn any guy embis until now...

They're kind of always like this. In fact, their relationship thrives on co-patronizing with a healthy dose of
mushy stuff. The mutual and equal investment in their daughter helps too... As well as the fact that they find each other cute
as heck (but that last one is normal for any embis couple).

SDG, everyone.
This is the most dramatic <s>office space</s> garage workshop reveal in the history of comicking.

Welcome back to regular VHV goodness! This year's April Fools thing was a bit weird, wasn't it? And a first!

Now, I did mention how Rose is mute, but that doesn't mean she can't make noises. Exhaling loudly in sighs, puffs or huffs is her
limit, but others of her species manage a bit of a fuzzy sounding whisper to actually talk. It's not at all easy though, as they don't
naturally even learn spoken language beyond understanding others who speak it- No real vocal chords to necessitate the
accelerated language learning processes that other young beings have- So technically Rose's first language is written

As for what she is, I'll reveal her species name at a time where it's appropriate. For now...

SDG, everyone.
You know, like how the moth flies out of the empty wallet when the broke dude opens it?
Just so much poorer that the moth is dead and there's no washer inside.

Rose is a quirky, rare form of sapient. Part of the weirdness is not often commented on, but her incapability to vocalize is of
particular note. To facilitate this, Rosie is using a Real Paper drawing tablet and passing her drawings to yamri.
After many years of technological innovation and putting up with the same ol', one day a hardware designer got tired of worn
nibs, scratched screens and shakey strokes, so he sought to put a stop to that.
Trying his best to match the sensation of drawing on paper, he spent a good year and a half of nonstop work to make a screen
out of a special interstellar-era gel that reformed itself, all the while protecting the electronics and allowing proper drag at the
same time to stabilize strokes naturally.
The product overall sold very very well and is still seeing manufacture in many different sizes as the mainstay of any digital artist
with the coin to buy it, but unfortunately the one weakness of the "Real Paper" tablet is that it totally, completely and
entirely failed to feel like paper in any way whatsoever.

SDG, everyone.
