Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here.

As I announced last week, I’m suspending the main story for the next three weeks to bring you this year’s Draconia Chronicles Holiday Special!  Fiera and her sister Mizu are up to something, and this year, they’ve got accomplices in the form of Princess Lumina, and twin Tiger sisters Cree and Tyree.  Will they succeed in capturing the elusive Sandy Claws?  Stay tuned…

Click here to order the 2013 "Draconia Chronicles" Calendar!The 2013 Draconia Chronicles Calendar is now available for ordering!  This is your chance to get your hands on the must-have item for every Draconiac.  Celebrate 2013 with twelve months of tasty Tarot-inspired goodness, starring your favorite Dragons AND Tigers from The Draconia Chronicles, a couple of which might actually wear some clothing.  Help support your favorite webcomic and order now!

And with that, I’m one exhausted artist with a lot of work to do.  I’m about midway through colors on the calendar, which I will admit I’m behind on, but things are still on track to get things into your hands by Christmas.  And speaking of Christmas, be sure to be here next week to find out just what sort of trap the girls are getting ready to spring on Sandy Claws!  See you then!

Until then, take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading!

    Oh dear. Cree is having a Ralph Wiggum moment in that last panel. But hey! New storyline! Operation: Kidnap Sandy Claws! Someone get Tim Burton on line to start directing, I feel a song coming on.

    • Mr. E

      Already been done. :trollface:

    • Slasheredge

      This is halloween this is halloween this is halloween….

    • LOL! Now I can’t unthink that! Ralph Wiggum moment. Perfect!! ^o^

      • MaveriKat

        No need to thank me. You’re the one who came up with it. Thank you for the great laugh. :3

        • My pleasure! Glad it got laughs! ^o^

          • MaveriKat

            Many laughs! Glad your girls notice the art shift too! 😀

          • I figured I’d let Tyree lean on the fourth wall a bit. Over the last two years, I’ve tried to reconfigure the characters’ faces and heads to (1) lower their mouths, as they were too close to their noses, and (2) to reconcile their profile appearance with their three-quarter appearance. Constant refinement. I’m curious to see how they’ll all look in two more years. ^__^

          • Durandle

            One thing with the dragons that I think makes them look unnatural is the square shaping on their chests simply making this a more organic shape would look more natural

          • Durandle

            I ment to say on the subject of art evolving…

      • Mr. E

  • Kobra

    Never seen someone so happy to be bait. At least not without a couple of scooby snacks.

    • Slasheredge

      Sandy claw had better watchh out. Also I love how none of them realize if the fail they’ll be on the naughty list, and nothing.

      • But what if Sandy Claws doesn’t work by lists?

        • Slasheredge

          Then it’s either the naughty scroll or maybe song for the tigers.

    • “Cree Crunchies?” I should market those.

      • MaveriKat

        Are they made from pony jerky?

        • They are, and to quote her twin sister Tyree, “They’re d’licious!!”

          • MaveriKat

            “You’ll be so hungry, you could eat the horse!”

          • Kobra

            Hopefully that’s not Dracony jerky.

      • Kobra

        May have to worry about copy right infringement…

      • Mr. E

        *in AFV style*
        “Do it!*
        (and can you list the appliances the dragons use that bear similarities to our real world objects? Please?)

  • I am reminded excessively of Nightmare Before Christmas. In a good way, it is the best Christmas movie ever. But the point is Cree is adorable and I can’t wait to see more.

    • I love working with this cast, and I’ve been looking forward to the Holiday Special all year to get the young ‘uns back together. Cree is pretty adorable. ^__^

      • Mr. E

        Ditto Razor! (^u^)

      I’m not saying it’s magic, but it’s magic.

    • Slasheredge

      Childish ploting aura would make since.

    • ACTING!

  • tjb123456

    this was so cute that I barfed rainbows!

    • I did that once, but it was the result of a lot of Jell-O shooters. ^__^

      • Mr. E

        And a face-plant in the gutter! Nyuk-nyuk-nyuk! :Curly face:

  • Kobra

    Looks like we got our self’s a couple of Grinch’s this year.

    • Mr. E

      That means a change of heart like the story! or not… 8|

      • Kobra

        Dame! I got people talking in rime now!!!

        • Mr. E

          And how!

    • “All the Whos down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot,
      But the Grinch who lived just north of Whoville did not…”

            *Jokingly*
            Scenes from three comics. By goodness, are you some kind of time wizard? XD

          • Three? You’re referring to the flashbacks? I only count two. And I’m no wizard. I just have Photoshop, which is kind of the same thing. ^__^

          • MrAMP

            Oh snap! I thought one of those B&W images were from a third year. Yeah, it would be two. Sorry ^_^;

          • Oh, okay. Yeah, Mizu’s referencing the 2011 special, and Cree and Tyree are referencing the 2010 edition. I figured I’d create some continuity between the three volumes. ^__^

          • William Cron

            I am in love with the expressions in this week’s comic! The characters are so cute. 🙂 the next few weeks should be great.

          • I hope they are! I like getting to do a comic that’s all about fun once in a while. ^__^

    Well I guess I will go rewatch the Nightmare before Christmas. Hurray for being bait.

    • Never a bad time to rewatch that movie. ^__^

  • Kobra

    Ive never seen someone so happy about being bait. At least not without a couple of Scooby Snacks.

    And what’s with Mizu’s eyes? She’s not a light dragon.

    • All these comments seem awfully familiar. It’s like that déjà vu feeling, only it’s with something I’ve already done before. Like déjà vu.

      • Kobra

        Sorry, I reloaded the page and didn’t see the comments so I thought they go removed or something.

    I think there’s some stuff is on mizus’ face.

    • It’s the projection on the screen behind her. I wanted to create the effect that it’s projecting onto her face and arm. Didn’t quite hit the mark. v__v;;

  • so nice to see a christmas themed comic here that has tigress’ and dragoness’ being friends. the whole “capturing sandy claws” thing worries me a little bit, but kids, right

    • It’s the one time of the year when I can get them in the same room without immediately trying to kill each other. ^__^

  • EOTW

    I might be in a slight state of shock. Iv’e gotten so used to the violence, sex, and war psychology in this comic that this page really threw me off. I mean, the shock of this page really amplified the cuteness… and I love it! This is going to be a great filler, I can already tell.

    • Wow, thanks! Don’t get me wrong–I WANT “The Draconia Chronicles” to be all about sexy action and adventure and violence, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like cute and sugary things, too. I mean, I AM a brony, after all. ^3^

      • Mr. E

        That’s one reason I like this comic.

        • That means there’s more than one! Yay! ^o^

          • Why? What did I do to deserve being thrown? I don’t know how to take a fall like a pro wrestler.

          • EOTW

            Its great how I can start a conversation that doesn’t involve me whatsoever. I was wondering if you could tell me where to find these past bonus comics because I don’t know where to look.

            I was wondering that too actually :l I hope they weren’t deleted after the season passed lol.

  • Teeroy766

    It’s really nice seeing Tigers and Dragons NOT trying to kill each other for once. I must say it was a bit shocking at first though, I hadn’t read where you had said you were going to do this so I was like “WTF?” Then I got it. So cute.

    • See? It pays to read the little blurb beneath the comic for just this reason! ^__^

      Originally, we did single-page Christmas specials, usually posted on Christmas Eve. The past two years, though, I’ve done expanded holiday specials spanning most of the month of December each time, and they’ve been very well-received. Keeping the tradition going! ^o^

      • Mr. E

        Nice to know that they’re working together. 🙂

  • Belokk

    You know i actually have to wonder alot of the time if these christmas joke comics are actually supposed to be showing (minorly) what Shaleigh’s personality may actualy be like

    Because personally from what i’ve seen in the canon comics makes me think she and the rest of the foxes may actually be completely manipulating both sides in the war to eventually defeat them both in one strike (heck the foxes probably already have the obsidian egg and Zhirite claw) and at this point i’m wondering if the foxes actually started the entire war themselves

    I may be either completely wrong or have predicted almost the entire story ahead here (doubtful and even were i right then it probably has many more plot twists) but so far the foxes seem to be immensly hinted at having a plan something like this

    • Mr. E

      IMPOSTER! But you’re ok. Next time though, don’t steal my persona.

      • Mr. E

        Besides, that what I was thinking.

        • ThatOneComment

          Well from what I remember, Shaleigh hid the tiger queen away while the volcano erupted and her peopel desperately needed her. She also gave the dragon queen the information back when, which led to that tiger vs dragon battle where Gaia killed. (I think, I can’t remember, but I know she gave the dragon queen advice which led to dragon vs tiger action.)

          • Mr. E

            That because Shaleigh wants them both alive so she can use them for her insidious plans.

          • ThatOneComment

            Which reminds me, Kilani said she ‘found’ the egg. The queen claims she stole it. I imagine a certain fox is responsible for this.

          • Mr. E

            Or does the egg ACTUALLY exist at ALL? (€ಠ‸⊙ )

          • EOTW

            Talking about Lumina’s egg, not the obsidian, if thats what you’re referring to.

          • Mr. E

            I meant the Obsidian Egg, but THAT IS a good theory!

          • ThatOneComment

            Yeah, my fault for not specifying, but it makes sense to me. As long as memory serves, Kilani said she found the dragon egg. I doubt any dragons had a hand in stealing the princess’ egg.

            Also, I am ignorant somewhat, I need to re-read the story. What is the obsidian egg?

          • EOTW

            The dragon’s equivalent of the zhirite claw, supposedly a weapon that could defeat the tigers. It probably doesn’t exist.

          • Durandle

            Do you guys remember when a certain fox said that if this was the cost of uniting the different factions what would the cost of peace be

            Note this was just after the volcano finished erupting

          • AseretZone

            Oh yeah. Her “insidious plans”. That involve a great amount of seduction, apparently. Geez, that fox…

      • Belokk

        What do you mean i stole your persona?

        • Mr. E

          I think it was an error, but your name said Mr. E for one hour or something, then shifted back! Creepy!

        • Epic face 9999

          Yeah i want it to be a boy cause there is a lot of females.

          • ThatOneComment

            There are males, just “feral.” Male tigers are easily seen in previous pages, and there is a male dragon seen in Gaia’s story, during her flashback(the pages before 100, if I remember right).

          • Mr. E

            You certainly are correct!

          • TheAngryOldFart

            A male in this would be like “….F*ck yeah!”

            i think that the male dragons are different because they probably left because of the interracial war and thought it was ridiculous so they left the rest of the females, although they still supply them with “elixir” (quite viscous elixer at that) for hatching so the race doesn’t die out

          Ah, my mistake. Well the prospect of all the presents they want is quite the incentive.

    Wait, can some one explain to me again, why nearlly every single person in that world is female?

    • Epic face 9999

      Yeah i want it to be a boy cause there is a lot of females.

      • ThatOneComment

        There are males, just “feral.” Male tigers are easily seen in previous pages, and there is a male dragon seen in Gaia’s story, during her flashback(the pages before 100, if I remember right).

          You certainly are correct!

          • TheAngryOldFart

            A male in this would be like “….F*ck yeah!”
