DRAMA. No one gets ANYTHING out of this relationship! (And as always, if you want to get the gist of what gesture Mags is doing, just mimic it!)

Anyway, sorry for the lack of updates, it's that magical ~finals~ time again! So only one update this week, and MAYBE an update next week. After that I'm on my 3 week break and that means I'll get to pump out updates during my freetime. Look forward to it! In the meantime though...

Here's A POLL that will determine the holiday special around xmas. Remember, you can only vote once on the poll!

And last but not least, the NEW INCENTIVE is uh, I guess Mags' turn in ~in another comic that blankd would not draw well~. Alternatively it's the worst shampoo commercial ever.

@sinksdownslowly
Do what? And ahaha, fujoshis....

@stephi
No kiss for anyone!

@SRQ
lol, I remember back in the ~early pages~ people were slinging "seme" and "uke" around like nothing XD.

@daughter of leo
Oops, sorry for teasing you like that... and even moreso since finals! And indeed, something is quite fishy about all of this!

@shark
More river dunking!

@cala
So sorry about that confusion! But yes there was a big difference. I'm glad you like the tension, I love drawing it. 8)

@kanilla maxwell
Thank you very much! Here's to hoping everything will be revealed to your understanding!

@azerken
Just hand gestures this time!

@kitti
lawl, I suppose Raz should try flapping his arms to express agitation (he already does enough squawking).

@lavender_youko
Thank you very much, readers such as yourself help keep me going ;D I'll definitely see this one to the end (despite that probably scary period of silence)!

@cryingravens
His undershirt? Hahah, it is charming in a sort of way. His priest getup is actually a rusty-red but it doesn't show in comic 8>

@stephi and izayaneko
I'm only sorry I can't update every day ;_;

@mr.sheep
Thank you very much, I do my best to convey that ;D

@kurotsukineko
Welcome back 8)

Mags looks weirdly adorable in the fourth panel. xD
Just sayin'.

The Mags incentive is nice :D Although, this comic you supposedly wouldn't be able to draw very well seems to have the hints of being drawn really well. XD

I find it interesting that Raz has no trouble understanding a mute. I guess that speaks volumes about his level of attention to someone he claims to just consider as a fuckbuddy, hmm?

I love Raz's high and mighty expression in the first panel, despite being pinned to a wall by dark otherwordly forces of magic, fff.

Haha I am finally experiencing the wonderful stress that people have talked about when dealing with finals and it's amazing that people can update at all really. Also, I wonder if Razzy ever 'gave a shit' about the souls in his church and he's speaking from experience. Maybe? Yea? This whole souls don't deserve your respect thing is just too tempting to give up, especially when I go back and reread the actions of two souls in particular.

And I wonder if Razzy knows about what really happened to the old man and doesn't care, or thinks he just turned into a Nihilfaer and thinks that Mags wants him to give a shit about it. Cause all we really know about the issue is that Sid said he had no clue what it was, but honestly, I'm taking Sid's opinion with a grain of salt. (I would say I'm sorry Sid, but I'm not.)

Also, does ANYONE, fictional or not, call Razzy but his full name? With exception of Karim in Chapter Two? (Cheres's 'Razzy' seems to fit him so much better than 'Raz' in my opinion. And doubly also, I love the names in here, of every thing. I be hatin on your creativity, in that good appreciative way.

And that was my super long comment to get you though finals. Good luck :)

Whoah whoah whoah whoah maybe I am slow but I just clued in that the beast thing Mags and Sid fought was the old man... yeah that epiphany was probably supposed to happen last page...

I take it that's not the usual Nihilfaer transformation... well Sid himself said that. Hmmm wtf is going on in Mionfaer! Hahaha I'm intrigued!

Good luck with finals!

I can really feel Mag's frustration. Though why is he mute? I am really curious now. Ahh~ you have me totally hooked on this story stuff.

Also: Dat incentive! Dose PECS. DAT POSE. Unf!

im assuming he cant write?


...or is it because this isnt real life, and that would make this all way too easy and therefore not a great comic, lol

He must be really good at Charades, then!

@Passant: I think they established somewhere earlier with Sid that Mags doesn't write the same language. He tried to write a response to Sid near when they first met.

Edit: Comment virginity. Lol.

Best comic on SmackJeeves!!
Post dos!

I just reread, and holy cow did I miss a lot the first time through!

TIME FOR MY IRREVOCABLY INCORRECT THEORIES WHICH I WILL JUST BLURT OUT. OKAY. Sorry this is so long. I'm not expecting a response to any of this, I just had to get it out. D:

The clips/hair things/whatever Chiranobles wear. It could be a thing given to them by this Juvciel character. I think it, at least in part, controls their monster forms. Raz's was dripping at one point / Martae's bracelets were important. I think it is what makes them immortal, since she was not to 'die' without them.

I can't recall if there was something to disprove this, but I have a suspicion that Mag's eye has Nihilfaer poisoning. Exposing it to the sunlight or something would probably make it spread faster. Maybe the eyepatch works as a ward of sorts to keep the poison in place. Or maybe he's been cursed in his eye, that's why he doesn't talk...

I'm glad you spelled out why Magician was trying to get sexy with Raz in the first few pages. I think I'm bad at subtly and never would have realized it. :| So, my theory on their relationship. (ttly wrong of course.)
I don't think Magician is actually gay, or anything, like, at all. Maybe he could develop feelings or whatever unmarkeds feel (hahaha) but the poor guy has some deeper connection that has him putting up with Raz's bullshit. (obviously.) And as for Raz, I think he just doesn't care who it is. But! I am starting to think that for as poorly as he treats Mags, he would never let harm come to him. Or some other totally homo-sounding euphemism. What Texty says/has written in him kinda suggests that, or maybe not, who knows.

The blue pages, I'm thinking are flashbacks. As for who is in them, I'm not completely sure. I think Kavir is the human-world version of someone we already know. Maybe Sid. Probably Sid. Possibly Mags, but not likely. Well, it could be, judging from Setton's skin tone. Actually, yeah, it's probably Magician. Also, that old injured guy has hair a lot like Raz's, if you look at the bangs right. XD

... ohgeesepleasedon'tberelated o_o;

So. As for the year that Raz was missing. I think he's having memory relapse, and that something critical had to have happened in that year... was he reborn in the human world and hated it? The horror! I have no idea on this. So curious...

As for texty. Dude, he's gotta be, like, Raz's innermost thoughts come to life to pick away at his psychology. No one else can see him. (It, I suppose would be better.) I think his body at least is a direct reflection of Raz's thoughts. As for where he came from, who knows! Juvciel might've had a hand in it.

Juvciel = Red Star? hmmm...

Also, 'Astervotum' sounds like 'star speak' to me XD Star language. Fff.

Just throwing this out there. Sid said something about 'what would happen to your soul if you died here'. I wonder how the Bezzafrayl/Chiranobles get there in the first place. Or the unmarked for that matter! Maybe if an unmarked dies in Mionfaer they end up a pissy old priest like Raz.

Okay, I'm done spewing nonsense. *lapses back into silent stalking*

When I mimic Mags's gestures, all I can think is that it feels like I'm petting a cat. That aside, I'm just enjoying their facial expressions and pondering to myself :)
