Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here. Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you.  An apology really did just cross Kess‘ lips.  Miracles can still happen. Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can pull up “Leader of Men” by Nickelback. And I don’t have too much else to say this week.  I’m pretty exhausted, as this page took a lot out of me.  Time to rest up and get to work on next week’s installment.  Will Kess finally forgive her sister Kilani?  Stay tuned… Until then, take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading! =RazorFox.
  • *Sniff**Sniff* this is making me teary eyed… though Kess’s answer was… how do I put it… predictably boring

    • Sorry about that. Not every line can be a stunner, and sometimes, the simplest way to say something is the most effective, even if it’s not terribly exciting. ^__^;

      • Alex Hunter

        Its ok, Ive been watching to many movies to practice reviews that my standards kinda went up. Its still a great page.

  • Another wonderful page from you Razor! And *gasp* Kess giving an apology!? O_o

    • Thanks for the kind words! And Kess isn’t entirely merciless. She almost forgave Kilani once before, but that was before learning where they wound up.

      • You’re welcome~ I’m glad to hear Kess can have a semi-soft side too. It makes her realistic. xD That’s what makes it a good thing to give characters good and bad traits. ^w^ You make it hard for me to pick sides… Dragons or Tigers. xD

        • I’ve deliberately structured things so that neither side is painted as good or bad. Rather, I want to show that each side has justification for its actions, and within each side, there are heroes as well as some “bad” people. I’m of the mind that everyone is capable of acts of great good and tremendous evil. We’re seeing here that Kess can be swayed. Glad I was able to create a realistic portrayal on her. ^__^

          • xD Haha yes, exactly! There is no good or evil – just two sides with different views~ So glad you think that way too – I knew there was something I liked/loved about this comic and you and now I can finally pinpointed it down. xD

            I prefer stories with that in mind… makes it so much more interesting than evil = muahaha stabbity stab stab; kill puppies coz we ebilz! XD

  • I knew that it couldn’t happen, or at least wouldn’t. It is too predictable, I know this because I managed to predict it, and because I did it inherently won’t happen.

    • Its at least good that a bit of suspense is left, but it is leaning towards the forgiving route than it is waaaaaay too predictable, I can bet that its going the scream and blame game

      • The conversation isn’t over yet. There might still be some screaming. This IS Kess, after all. ^__^

    • What, Kess apologizing? But it did just happen, on this page. Up there. Above all this. Or are you talking about something else? o_O

      • I was talking about the failed raising of the dragon child.

        • Ah, yes, but I wouldn’t throw out all hope of a reunion down the road. The future is still a wild card. ^__^

  • MaveriKat

    Awwww, geeze… we Kilani REALLY needs a hug!

    • The poor girl can only take so much. She had to crack sooner or later.

      • MaveriKat

        I figure. And sorry for double-posts, Razor. And yes, if I may, I would give her tight hugs and tissues… cloth hankeys even!

        • Shirt sleeves, too.

          • MaveriKat

            I’ll do whatever is needed for the poor Tigress. And for apologizing, Kess gets a cookie.

    • Deadmen008

      Wow. I honestly didn’t see that coming. I’m very interested to see where this leads.

      • Kess is not impenetrable. Glad you’re enjoying this moment of vulnerability for her. ^__^

  • MrAMP

    Dang! I didn’t see Kilani breaking down like this. Granted she’s been through quite a bit as of late, but she’s a warriors. Shouldn’t she be use to it by now. Also, not trying to be the devil’s advocate, but I can’t help but feel that Kess’s apology might turn into an insult in the next page or so.

    • Kilani’s a courageous soul, indeed. We’ll see whether Kess takes the cowardly way out of this conversation. ^__^

    • dundee402

      being in the army myself i can tell you that every solders will have a nerves breakdown regardless of how long they been in, everyone has a braking point.

  • CrazyMerchant

    Oh my god. They can live together in peace but something tells me that it ain’t going to be easy for them as they need to put aside their difference. I blame the Fox!

    PEACE. THROUGH. POWER.

    • Never hurts to have a scapegoat. ^__^

  • Xch3l

    Am I dreaming? Kess giving an apology? Wow. Did she just said it? Or is it from heart. Kilani was just trying to help, and what does she get? Sand in the face… TT_TT Poor Kilani, she needs a break… and a hug, a long one…

    • You’re not dreaming. Kess really did just muster up an apology. Miracles can happen.

  • Kobra

    Somehow Kess’s apology gust seems so half assed and half hearted.

    • It might be better than nothing, though.

  • Silvertail

    Yes! Closure! At long last, Kess and Kilani finally have an opportunity to reconcile! And to think, all it took was being bested by a Light Dragon in a death-trap maze for it to happen.

    • Funny how fate works, eh? ^__^

  • DarkGuyver2020

    Honestly. What did Kess expect Kilani to say after that long winded pointing of the finger? I’m honestly surprised that Kess apologised at the end. I was expecting it to be more along the lines of:
    Kess: “That’s right. Hang your head in shame, you worthless little mongrel! By the way, you’re adopted!”
    I think it’s high time that Kess sucks it up and stops running her big fat mouth. Or at the very least, Shie walks over and breaks her jaw. Either works for me.

    • LOL! You actually nailed Kess’ “voice” there. Sounds exactly like something she’d say!

  • Therew

    Kess, do the right thing. Everyone needs to pack up, and head home, eat a few steaks and get some sleep.

    • Sounds like a good plan. In fact, I could go for some steak. My treat, ladies!

      • Chuck

        Extra rare!

        • Maybe for them. I’m a more “well-done” kind of guy. I might have to talk to Xhianil. ~__^

      • DragonForLife

        is it just me, or is most of all the battles and war and no-existing peace due to a massive language barrier?

        • It certainly isn’t helping, that’s for certain. ^__^

          • DragonForLife

            There should have been an artefact that enables dragons to understand tiger speech and vice versa. That way they can all come along, and then we can get dragons+tigers fanservice!

          • And at the end of the day, is there any better reason in the world to do anything than fanservice? ^o^

          • DragonForLife

            FANSERVICE ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE SKY!!!

          • Feartheswans

            Dragons are fully capable of Learning the Dragon tongue. It has been shown in the Comic that Queen Obscura Speaks Tiger, and quite well! http://draconia.katbox.net/archive/comic-222/ and http://draconia.katbox.net/archive/comic-236/

            I wonder if Shaleigh will show up again 😛

          • DragonForLife

            well the language barrier is still there….

            and why would Dragons not be able to learn the Dragon tounge? they be dragons XD did you mean tigers are fully capable, or dragons capable of learning the Tiger Tounge?

    Oh no….Kess broke Kilani! Someone go get the duck tape!

    • Duct tape is like The Force: it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together. ^o^

  • Mr. Al

    Uhm, I’ve forgotten, isn’t there suposed to be a tiger-princess, and who was it again? Kind alooked like kilani, but white-furred? or am i remembering completely wrong? 😮

    • There is. Princess Kiriad hasn’t been used in the story for some time, though, but I do have a plan to bring her back into the mix before too long. Hang tight. ~__^

  • ElektraFan

    When a mouth says nothing the body denounces everything. This is what we call “body language”. So it’s very clear Kess’ apologies weren’t sincere by looking at her facial expression. Kess is planning a retaliation to make Kilani pay for all the hell she went through for sure!!

    • Well, we’ll find out next week just how sincere her apology is. Let’s give her a chance. ^__^

    well well, we have had the earth dragons save what was left of the dragons from an angry volcano, earth dragons gaining a good role in society. Kilani save her sister and friends from prison, getting up to the point where kess acctualy apologized, and many more things i don’t remember… now we’re only missing a male fox counterpart of the female one, standing in the dark within the cave, watching with a glee….. a madmans glee, but still an awesome glee… and nice page as always, razorfox^^

    • Thanks! And yeah, there have been a good number of social achievements in the story thus far. There’s still more to come. As for a male Fox lurking in the Khalira–if he is there, he’s been treated to a nice show from all the ladies there. ^__^
