And I am crazy. That's all you need to know. :P
*cough*

Well, here it is. An anti-climatic, cheesy, awkward, sudden confession. There were multiple points in which this almost happened before, but my characters weren't ready yet. Lethe had to be the one to say it first, even if it's in a barely conscious sleep-deprived state. She had to break a little in order to admit it to Rob out loud. Lethe's original plan was to just not tell Rob how she felt, keep her distance, and hope the feelings would go away eventually. Confronted in a situation in which she can't get away, however...

On a side note, actual Rob is not as bishie as Lethe's imaginary version of him. XD
You have no idea how much I agonized over which version/lines to use. Finding a good balance of cheese is quite difficult. The next page might have to be a double update, we'll see. I'll keep you updated on Twitter.
:3

Can't think of anything significant to say, so I'm going to go ahead and post.
The book Yvernes is reading is "How to Tie Ropes". Purely wholesome, I assure you.

In an ideal world, this would've been a little more spread out, but I didn't have enough room on the page, and I didn't want to drag it out over two pages. The scene with Harue and Kaze isn't really necessary, but I couldn't help myself at the time. Seems rather silly in hindsight. Well, I'm not redoing it now!

The next few pages may need to be one big update. I'm not sure yet, we'll see.
While the room was a mess when Rivala was in there, Rivala wouldn't really notice the importance of them. Lethe was starting to chart things out back in chapter 8 (the note taking started earlier, of course). I know the room details haven't been consistent since then... just pretend it's been magically remodeled or something.

I did rush this a little, so apologies for the mess. I need to switch out my pens more often. I've forgotten just how sharp a .005 pen is supposed to be (before the tip gets squished down from wear). I'm unsure when the next update will be, going through a rough spot in my personal life. I'll try not to keep you all waiting too long.
Lots of mistakes here, I rushed a bit. Thank goodness for speech bubbles! The chair Kage sat in looks a bit funny-it has a skinny back to give wings room to stretch. I can't imagine that regular chairs would be good with wings out. Oh, and in case anyone forgot, Rubedo is Rob's given name. His adopted family changed it to Robert/Rob for ease of use. I know it got mentioned in Rob and Kaze's extra page way back when, at least.

It's been awhile, hasn't it? I've been horribly distracted by new video games, but I should be good for now. The thing about doing this as a hobby, is that I need to enjoy it. I'm looking forward to the upcoming pages. I just need to get there...
I don't even remember if I put actual words in there or not before blacking them out. I think the first one's pretty obvious, though.
X3 Hooray for Irish curse word websites! Banjanxed is a really fun word, though.
Again, not completely done editing, but I wanted to get this up. Forgot to add just a hint of green to her nightgown... whoops.

Please ignore the variable width of the cell bars in proportion to Lethe, if it looks like she could walk right out. Just pretend there's other bars there at the moment or something.

I'm tired, if you couldn't tell. In a few weeks, I'll have a later shift at work, which is better for me.
Whew. I'm nearly done, haven't edited the background completely, but I figured I'd post what I have so far. I'll get the finished one up tomorrow, though the changes are small so I doubt anyone will notice. :3 Originally this page was going to be just the first three rows, but I need more room for the next page, so the cutoff point is a bit awkward.

It's been a crazy few weeks. Between leaving my old job and starting my new one, I've been doing long overdue house stuff. Not b/c I wanted to, but b/c I had to. I finally got a chance to have some fun on Sat, and I crashed yesterday. I think things will get better after training's done next month, but as of right now I don't have much time to work on the comic. We'll see how it goes.
Lethe is definitely hallucinating/dreaming right now, just to be clear. The first few drafts were extensive talks with actual female Kuuki, then Lethe dreaming, but I kept reiterating the same points over and over. Plus, the students don't know where she is yet. I think I had more to say about this page, but it's escaping me right now. Too tired. XD

I think the next page should be up next week, I have a bit of time off before I start a new job, but I also have a ton of stuff to get done.
Once again, I struggled with this and variations thereof. I wanted to illustrate Lethe starting to lose it due to stress/lack of sleep. The big panel was actually fun to draw, though this page needed a lot of editing. The colored speech bubbles are supposed to be her thoughts going into overdrive, overlapping each other. I get that a lot, when I think too fast/too much and have trouble nailing them down. I've never experienced much insomnia myself, I get nauseous if I stay up too late. I need my sleep!

It's been long enough since the last storyline update, right? Had a really bad week and a half, but on the plus side I might be getting a better job soon. More hours, but a steady schedule should make things easier. We'll see, I'm not in the clear yet!
I did this gag last week, I really should've posted it then, but I'm an idiot. I didn't even ink this one, just edited quick on the computer. It won't even last long, I should be done with the next storyline page tomorrow.

This flashback is to before Lethe cut her hair. I think I had Nappy mention somewhere before that he gets punished for his voyeurism (w/out going into detail), but I'm not sure.

Fi tends to deal out punishments depending on the severity of the transgression and if the party sincerely repents or not. The actual punishments are catered for the recipient, as well.

And apparently pissing Fianne too many times is a crime.
My internet connection's pretty spotty right now, so I'm going to try to upload this quick before it craps out again.
The pacing might be a bit fast. I worked a few drafts into this version here. Fi's accent is still slipping in and out, depending on how angry she is. Hope it's obvious who's talking. I figured out a better way to do the colored inner speech bubble thing on Manga Studio, but it's too much work to do with every single bubble. Lethe's head wasn't in the first panel originally, but then I realized I may need it to remind readers where she is in the room. So... I copied and pasted the back of her head from the previous page. XD It was too late to draw/color her in traditionally!
Forgot to fix some errant lines in the last panel! All done now.
Here we are in Fianne's office, which we haven't seen in quite some time. I toned down the wall color mainly so Lethe's natural hair color won't disappear in it. The page in which Rob told Lethe about this is here:
http://sore.smackjeeves.com/comics/2048122/sore-c13p8/

I messed up on this page a lot. Faces are off, perspective lines are wonky... Covered up some of it, left others open. The dialogue wasn't too bad this time, at least!
I feel a little sorry for Rivala. Is it just me, or is she taking it almost like a breakup?

Sorry these pages are taking so long lately. More things are being set in motion and I want to do it right, but I'm debating the exact order and details on what needs to happen.
Hope the text isn't too crowded, I should've given it a bit more room for Rivala's fantasy sequence. This page was harder to write/draw than it may seem. Emotionally, I was feeling Lethe's hopelessness and apathy. I need to rework the next few pages, but there is some light at the end of the tunnel for future events. Unless I end up changing my mind again. XD
Note:

Oh wait, there was the Xmas special where Deb pressed the button, but I'm not sure how canon that mini chapter is. XD
