Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here. So Xhianil and Flare have made it this far in their Fire Legion tryouts, but can they survive the wrath of Red? Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can pull up “Consequence of Laughing” by Our Lady Peace. This has been an exhausting week, as it’s my first week back from last week’s convention excursion to Anime Weekend Atlanta.  I had a simply awesome time there, where I got to meet a bevy of new Draconiacs, along with longtime fans!  I also got to meet fellow Katboxer MasterGodai, who does our newest comic, Rascals!  I loved meeting each and every one of you, and in addition to that, a number of you were actually able to talk about the story in depth.  I can’t begin to tell you how cool that is. For years, people who would approach me at conventions would have a passing knowledge of plot points and characters, but this year, you made it clear that you’ve been reading carefully!  I got to talk to people at length about the story, along with fielding excellent questions about the comic and even some cool suggestions.  The Kess/Kilani storyline seems to be big on people’s minds right now, and I assure you that they are not done.  There’s much more to be told on that one.  And more than a few people voiced their appreciation for the Xhianil storyline, as a lot of folks were able to relate to her time in the trenches of restaurant work.  For the past few years, I’ve been working really hard to make the comic’s characters the real stars of the show, and based on your responses, it sounds like it’s paying off!  Thanks for the feedback! Atlanta brought me great times with awesome friends, including a raucous You Don’t Know Jack! tournament, sumptuous southern fried cuisine at the Marietta Diner, and a feast akin to the Great Foodening of Invader Zim lore at Fogo de Chão in swanky Buckhead, along with a full slate of commissions and even a few pre-orders for the forthcoming 2013 Draconia Chronicles Calendar.  The convention itself, as always, was run exceedingly well, with a great Artist Alley setup.  Overall, a most excellent, enjoyable, relaxing weekend full of food, folks, and fun.  Atlanta, count on me being back in 2013 when we’ll do this all over again.  In the words of Lady Red, “BANK ON IT!” Welp, back to the weekly grind.  Page 303 isn’t going to write, pencil, ink, color, or letter itself.  ^__^ Take care, fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading! =RazorFox.

  • Wolfheart811

    I wonder what I would do if I saw that argument happen in real life, then be told that I have to meet with one of the women involved…

    • Hope you went to bathroom beforehand, for starters. ^__^

      • Wolfheart811

        I would then hope that she forgets all about the argument, making Briella’s “derp” image more accurate.

        • LOL! I think that might be tainted by Briella’s own personal feelings, but maybe she’s seen Lady Red make faces in the mirror when no one’s looking. ^o^

  • MaveriKat

    Also, Elektra has one fine booty too.

    • It’s shockingly sweet. ^__^

      • MaveriKat

        So… rubber-based chap stick is in order?

        • Might help to get things properly grounded first.

          • MaveriKat

            Rubbers. Right. Definitely get lots of rubbers… I’m sure the local fire-department wouldn’t mind making some donations for such a worthy cause!

          • Because rubber offers protection. From electricity. Yeah. That. ^o^

          • MaveriKat

            Yep! And it also protects from unwanted eggs but THAT kind of rubber, I’d need to get form a High School Nurse’s Office.

          • Depends on which state you’re in. Totally different story south of the Mason-Dixon line. ^__^;

          • shredder163

            I was watching a ledgend of Spyro gameplay a tribute to your comic on youtube and a talking to about skyrim dragons
            what skyrim and spyro have anything to do with this you ask?! I dont know?

          • shredder163

            I didn’t finish I was talking to my room mate about skyrim drragons
            again they dont have anything to do with your comic witch by the way is AWSOME!!!

          • Thanks! I will admit that Spyro was a little bit of an inspiration for the character designs back in 1999 when the series was first created. Maybe I can hook him up with one of my Dragon ladies. ^__^

          • shredder163

            I think he’s already taken that or she died I think she did im pretty sure yeah she died

    Oh Flare, you’re so subtle.

  • EOTW

    There is a lot of foreshadowing on this page… but it already happened… postshadowing?
    P.S. Try to say “pink pyromaniacal piggy” five times fast.

    • Well, foreshadowing/postshadowing was one of the big things I was aiming for with this flashback. Xhianil and Flare were two characters that I thought deserved some development, and it gave me a chance to offer a few glimpses into other characters’ histories as well. Hope you’re enjoying it all!

      As for “pink pyromaniacal piggy,” apparently Flare has no trouble with it. Remember, though, that this is translated to English. The original Dragon-language dialogue might be less of a tongue-twister and more of a tongue-shredder. ^__^

  • Hiorou

    “She can kiss my scaly ass”… lol I like how angry Lady Red is here…and poor Xhianil and Flare, is really stressing when you are going to talk with someone and you know that someone is in a really REALLY bad mood… also I like how this page got more colors than the usual, give some strange rainbow happines on it…

    • Thanks! Glad you like the page. Not every page can be a giant rainbow extravaganza, due to scenery or a desired mood, but this one lent itself to it, so I went for it. ^__^

    *Jokingly*

    Unfortunately, Mr. AMP is too busy enjoying the visual image in the 4th panel to comment at the moment. Please wait patiently as he will surely comment in the next 5 to 10 minutes.

    *Inquiry*
    You know, I can’t help but somewhat feel sorry for the Lightning Dragons. I know it’s a flashback and what not but I suspect that the Fire Dragons had something to do with their exile.

    • Fourth? Or do you mean fifth? Because unless you’re referring to Elektra and Red just walking across the panel, the fifth the panel’s the one with the Elektra booty. ^__^;

      As to your inquiry, it’s a perfectly valid question. Maybe some more clues will surface soon. Stay tuned. ~__^

      • MrAMP

        The comment about the kissing ass my good fellow is what I was focusing on XD But that does help to the imagery now.

        • Ah, I see. Welp, Elektra’s full moon can give you something to practice on. ^3^

  • Kobra

    Oh so much foreshadowing in this page. Even more so since we, or most all of us know how it’s going to play out. Xhianil’s outbursts proved her greatest liability. Red did find the princess and never answered to Sombera.
    Course kissing Red’s scaly ass doesn’t sound like a bad idea… Giggady.

    • If you’re seeing the connections between present-day story events and what’s going on here in the flashback, then I’ve succeeded in weaving these stories together. It also shows that you’re paying close attention. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me! ^o^

  • Josh.C

    Wow, seems like Sombrana and Red didn’t get along even before she managed to get captured by the tigers and by extension, neither did Red and Electra.

    • The Red/Sombrana rivalry is one that I’ve been looking to showcase for some time. As for Red/Elektra, I wouldn’t exactly call that a rivalry just yet. There’s more to the story. I’m looking to set up a lot of long-term story elements throughout this chapter, and the rivalries are going help drive it. I think you’ll dig it. ^__^

  • Is this a flashback? I got a little lost in the story telling

    • A recent page, namely page 295, let people know that this is a flashback. If Xhianil is shown with short bangs, then it’s a flashback. ^__^;;

  • Maximillionysis

    What is this now?? The princess is missing?? When did that happen? Last I saw she was getting her mind wiped… again…
    Did I miss something? Or is this a plot twist in the making? =^.^= / ^.=.^

    • Um, serious question? The emoticons are throwing me, and I can’t tell if it’s serious or sarcasm. ^__^;;

      • GUEST

        I think I have a pretty good sarcasm radar. This doesn’t seem like sarcasm. The emoticons are probably just because they like plot twists and are excited.

        • Oh, well okay, then. Well, the events depicted here are in the past, when a certain little princess was missing. Not quite a plot twist, unless you’re new to the story. ^__^

          • Maximillionysis

            Sorry for the confusion. I wasn’t being sarcastic, I just wanted to put those at the end of it for the heck of it… I was more along the lines of asking if Lumina had gone missing /again/. But I feel like a derp after reading some of the other comments.

  • so, xhianil made it past her interview. thank goodness, her sweet innocence that shrouds her uncontrollable rage really brings people in.

    • I am so happy to hear that! Xhianil and Flare have become a lot of fun to write for, and their personalities make my job so easy. Glad to hear you’re digging Xhianil! Lets me know I might be doing something right. ^__^

  • mechafan1224

    Man I love Flare she WAS so full of life and Xahlini need to get her supressed anger under control before she rips another throat out. i just read the pre comic story on the wiki. Its a excellent read good job Razor but man its depressing. If I was in the story and have the ability to morph I would storm the castle something like this and with the same ost except i morph in black getter robo. At 17:22 http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xpluqd_shin-getter-robo-armageddon-episode-1_shortfilms Its a good show to watch if you like to watch robots beat up blood bag aliens. Also the full moon sure does look nice at this time of day.If you catch my drift.(snickers)

  • slasheredge

    Well the girl have caught red at an excellent moment. “If they want to get fried.”

    • They might have to kiss a bit of ass themselves to get on her good side.

      • slasheredge

        Then they have to get in line since I claim the first spot in the line.

    • mechafan1224

          Talking about such things, I am seriously and honestly unsure what to vote on the new poll O.o;

  • TheSonBarrettBarrage

    Confound these dragons and their sexy booties! I love me some Dragon Booty!

    Also why do I feel Lady Red being in such a poor mood isn’t going to end well?

    • Maybe I can make their booties a little less sexy for you. Would that help? ^__^

      • TheSonBarrettBarrage

        :O No! Keep them sexy! In fact if you make them sexier it might help. ^_~ Not sure if that’ll be a good or bad thing…yet… >.>

        • I don’t want to make them TOO distracting. There IS still a story going on, after all. ^__^;

          • TheSonBarrettBarrage

            Fair enough. Just keep them at the current level of sexiness then. I’m pretty sure I can find a way to deal with their sexy booty’s.

          • Aw, but I like a challenge. Oh well. >_>

  • Why do i get the feeling Xhianil will end up fighting with a red hot blade she just seems to have that touch of “I have a sword dont cross me” before acquiring said sword it may be that face in the second panel but all things considered she’d look great with a blade or two her character just has that FEEL of one with a blade.
