Happy Thursday, folks! :)

I'm going out of town this weekend, so I won't be posting a Friday Flare this week. I'll post two next week to make up for it. ;)

Please note that the next update will go up next Thursday, not Monday, due to my monthly break being due!

Thanks so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed today's update! <3

So I'm assuming his lethiace is being used full time to keep him alive? D:

So how is it out of commission and how should she have noticed?

Did I miss something, or is this something to be explained later?

It's out of commission because he's been fighting off monsters without using it ever since you froze his insides.

Is it out of commission because he needs this magic to keep his insides alive, or did he take too much damage that he just can't do it now? :o

Also.. tree is talking to them? :o
Amarok 24th Feb 2017, 12:46 AM edit delete reply
as if youre one to talk about talking trees jarvi?

Though id hate to think what would happen if he exhausted his powers if your theory is true. in either case he should be in agony right now.

O_O i cant make out the small gold bubble but that doesnt seem like a human voice!

Those two just can't get along, can they?
Although tbh Seia doesn't seem to be the type to try very hard to get along with people he doesn't appreciate much anyway x'D
Hmm I'm guessing it was not the tree that caused that 'krakoom'

I saw this posted to another webcomics comment page. (There's plenty of reader overlap, so I do not doubt some people have already seen it.) I debated with myself whether I should re-post it, but eventually decided to do so because it is also relevant here. The necessary disclaimer follows the re-post to avoid <SPOILER>.
EDNA MODE: "Remember 'Peanuts', with Charles Schulz? (Nice man. Kind to pets.) He took the afternoon off to go ice skating."
cut to b/w scene of Charles Schulz slipping and falling to the ice on his drawing arm

"Remember 'Doonesbury'? Garry Trudeau went vacationing in China."
cut to b/w scene of Duke-like Trudeau, blindfolded and with cigarette up against bullet-marked wall

"'Pogo'? Crawfish festival."
cut to b/w scene of boiling kettle being knocked over and scalding Walt Kelly

"'Mickey Mouse'?"
cut to b/w scene of a ride malfunction on the Disneyland Bobsled ride

"'Calvin & Hobbes'?"
cut to b/w scene of Bill Watterson being abducted by aliens

"No breaks!" ^_^

Disclaimer: In all seriousness, please take and enjoy your well-deserved break, @rufiangel. I begrudge you nothing and hope that only the best good fortune attends you. ^_^

@DLKmusic, those little squiggly things and the rectangular boxes on the sheet music are called 'rests', aren't they? How much more rest do you need? ^_^

Oh, Ophie, he just saved your life again - be a bit more courteous...

Ugh, the talking is too hard to read with all that yellow... =S

@alt text: *shakes pun jar* Oh, Rufi... =P

Ok, my try at deciphering: strike my foe with fear and might

I am unsure with the last word - as I said very hard to read... =S

(the last word could also be light - or something totally different)

One could say he's a tad cold hearted!
Enjoy your trip!

There. The ice king's heart will melt upon repeated saving of the unaware.

Just FYI, at least some reports have that Patreon is one of the sites possibly affected by the recent Cloudflare security bug, so Patreon users will want to take all due precautions.
