I make a lot of art and I go by the name Yubria … but you’ve probably already figured out that much. I’m really into making fantasy comics, and if you’re into fantasy/horror you should maybe check out my webcomic, broken. It’s about fairies fighting eldritch abominations and fun stuff like that.

Other art that gets posted on my art tumblr may include things such as: another one of my stories, currently going by the name Whisper (subject to change at any given moment); doodles from our D&D campaign (check out Dice2CU on Twitter/Tumblr/iTunes), Guild Wars 2 fanart, Pokemon fanart, and occasionally other things that strike my fancy.

Hey look, it's the 100th page! In retrospect I really should've expected Kyriena to show up on it and crash any potential parties. broken's 2nd birthday is next week and, spoiler, she's still gonna be in that update too.

Some results for the character poll:
Huvrye is the favorite, and the alignment guesses were split between Neutral Good and Chaotic Good. The construct is in second place (one vote behind Huvrye), and the majority guess went to Neutral Neutral.

Effiom is the least favorite, and guessed to be either Lawful Evil or Neutral Evil. Baal and Kyriena tied a close second, Lawful Evil and Neutral Evil/Chaotic Evil respectively.

At some point (probably far in the future) I'll draw a thing explaining which characters were based on which alignment, but that's kinda spoilery right now since some of the alignments reflect character decisions we won't see for a while. But even then, the difference between alignments can be kinda slippery sometimes, so I can totally see arguments for something else too.

Was hoping for a longer update this week, but that clearly didn't happen. It might happen next week or the week after since broken is reaching two fun milestones- the 100th page is going up next weekend, and the 2 year birthday is the week after- and I'd like the birthday update to end with something slightly less awful than Kyriena. We'll see how it goes.

In somewhat related news, we're doing another favorite character poll, now with a least favorite option! Because I'm very curious to see how different chapters may or may not affect who you guys do and don't like. If you have anything else to add about why you do/don't like various characters, feel free to comment. Like I said, I'm super curious. :3

@Dragoonfliy: One day I'm making a mini comic that goes into more detail about the book Huvrye's name comes from. It's one of the silliest things to come out of this story and I quite enjoy it.

Turns out leaving the entire city still wasn't good enough to get away from Kyriena.

Hey, so double update this week because I felt like it + the one page was super easy anyways! If you, like me, want double updates to be a regular thing, maybe consider supporting me on Patreon? You can also get other perks like concept art and seeing sketches/inks early. If you can't, it's cool, and I appreciate whatever support you can give, whether it's sharing the comic, commenting, or just reading. You're all awesome. <3

Also I saw Wonder Woman. I'm not into superhero comics, but I thoroughly enjoyed that movie. It had, among other things, some of the most beautiful action scenes I've seen in a long time. Have any of you seen it or plan to see it? (no spoilers, please)

We maybe should've started with this question.

@basia122: Your rambles are totally fine! I really like seeing people theorize about what has happened/will happen- it's interesting, and it helps me figure out if the comic is communicating the things it needs to ^^

@Knux: That sounds like the most hectic and best job! My dog likes to jump in bed and snuggle in the mornings. It makes getting out of bed pretty difficult. XD

As usual, it was nice having a break and wasting time on video games, but I'm happy to be back making comic pages again.

How are all of you doing? Anything exciting? Personally, I'm getting hyped for the Guild Wars 2 expansion and Destiny 2.

And that's it for Chapter 2! Once again, I'd just like to say that all of you are awesome- whether you're a Patron, a commenter, or a silent reader, I appreciate your support and I'm glad you're enjoying this story. <3

We're taking a 3-4 week break from the comic so I plan/write/start the next chunk of story. In the meantime, I'll be posting fanart from some lovely readers on Sundays, and I'll be doing a thing on my Tumblr. I've been wanting to do a choose your own adventure type thing (kinda like RubyQuest) that ties into the main storyline for a while, but since I haven't made one before I figure I'd start off with something a little less intense. Something like those not-miserable interaction sketches that takes place in a kinda modern AU. I'll start that up in a few days, so if you want to be involved, keep an eye on my art Tumblr. Updates will depend entirely on how much free time I have, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it works out.

@FinyMime: @YonaRemi: XD I kept thinking about that while working on the page, so clearly I had to make the dumb joke before anyone else did.

Hey, better late than never, am I right? :D Thanks for your patience, everyone- I had to take a quick break to work on another project, but man, it feels good to be drawing these skinny dorks again (the mentioned other project has been posted for all Patrons to see, if interested).

Just a reminder- this weekend and next weekend will be the last two updates of the chapter! After that, we'll take a brief break to prep for Chapter 3 and show off some lovely fanart from you wonderful people. <3 If you've made fanart and want me to post a link from your fanart to a specific site/comic, just let me know. Otherwise I'll link it to whatever social media you used to send it to me.

I'll keep you updated on how long the chapter break is going to be. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to start the next one ASAP for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to somebody finally getting a name.

Fun fact: On a whim, I counted up all the pages in this chapter. By the end, Huvrye will have spent almost 50% of it being injured in some way. He's not having a good day today.

Also, a heads up- the next couple updates may or may not be a bit late, but rest assured, I WILL GET THEM DONE. We're so close to the end of this chapter, and I'm getting excited about starting the next one ASAP. I'm planning to feature some fanart during the (hopefully short) chapter break in about four weeks. If you've made some, or are going to make some, send it to me (here or on my Tumblr/Twitter) and include links to whatever comic/art site/social media you want me to link. <3

Fun fact: Shotguns usually have an effective range of about 30 meters when using buckshot, or about 100 meters when using slugs.
Another fun fact: Adan likes to use alchemy to dramatically increase that range.

In other news- thanks to a comment on Twitter, this is Huvrye's new theme song. (if you missed the broken musical thing on Tumblr, his other theme song is Defying Gravity.)

@JoKeR: She has some pretty masculine features and this is only the second time someone's used a gender-specific term to talk about/to her, so that's understandable. ^^

I'm glad ya'll enjoyed the Q&A- I had a lot of fun with it. We'll probably do more of them during future last-minute hiatuses, but for now I'm happy that we're back in the story itself. And that I'm not sick anymore. How are all of you doing? Staying healthy, I hope?

Oh, and the Nzuri mentioned in this last panel was named by some lovely people on tumblr. We'll see her actual face next week.

We had a fun survey about pronouncing Huvrye's name this week.

A few announcement type things:
1- My long-distance boyfriend and I are hanging out for the next two week, plus I'm going to be busy with some other stuff, so I might not be able to make the next two updates (I know this is a terrible place in the story to take a break, I'm sorry TT__TT). SO I thought we could do a little Q&A instead? Ask me/the characters whatever you want (keep it PG, please) via the comment section, Tumblr, or Twitter, and I'll sketch up some answers to post in place of the normal update.
2- After much careful thought and deep contemplation, I've decided to use #hashtagbroken for the comic (because it's dumb and I couldn't think of anything I liked better). Feel free to use it if you're posting/reblogging/whatever something about the comic.
3- I'm playing Fire Emblem: Heroes and my code is 6591634841 if you want to add me. :)
