Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here. Did someone say “revenge?”  ~__^ Those of you looking for a soundtrack to this page can pull up “The One I Love” by R.E.M. We’re just two weeks away from the beginning of back-to-back convention weekends!  The weekend of November 2-4, I, along with fellow Katboxers Nekonny, of Caribbean Blue and iMew fame, and Sage, of YOSH! fame, will be at NekoCon in Hampton, Virginia!  We’ll be joined in the Artist Alley by Tom Fishbach, the creator of TwoKinds, as well.  It’s a four-way trifecta (“quadfecta?”) of catgirl-centric artistry.  You DO want to go! And then, the following weekend, I’ll be making a solo appearance as a guest at Anime USA in Washington, DC!  If you’re in or around our nation’s capital, make the trip out there.  Anime USA’s always been a great time for me, and they’ve been kind enough to invite me as a guest this year.  I’ll be sitting in on a panel or two, and setting up shop in the Artist Alley.  I’d love to see you there. Don’t forget that at each convention, I’ll be taking pre-orders for the 2013 Draconia Chronicles Calendar.  A lot of folks have asked me when I’m going to accept orders online.  Traditionally, I don’t accept online orders until the calendar actually goes to press, which is slated for late November.  The pre-orders are convention exclusives.  Sorry, internet people.  But you will have your chance.  Patience, grasshoppers. And with that, it’s back to work.  The weary never rest.  That’s why they’re weary.  ^__^ Take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading! =RazorFox.  
  • Sojourner

    Well, Briella’s back…and has learned to laser snipe, apparently.

    • Hehehehehe, I recognize that ‘zweeenn’ anywhere. Oh yeah, angsty speech has angst. Good job RazorFox.

      • Thanks! Good eye spotting a certain Dragon’s signature sound. ^__^

        • Kobra

          Still Red did make the right call about pulling and caging Xhi.

          • Lady Red’s no dummy. She knows a liability when it presents itself, and she’s not about to let it derail her mission.

    • Light can travel quite a distance. ^__^

    BOOM HEADSHOT!!!

    i think that if you become a psychiatrist in draconia (or whatever the place is called) you would make some serious money, seeing that everyone there has alot of issues. that being said being a mercinary would have a bigger prophit. since everyone wants to get revenge. sad.

    • You make some good points. I might have to explore that side of the Empire’s economy. ^__^

      • tjb123456

        not just dragons but also tigers. hey it’s a living. 🙂

  • silvermoon383

    She’s baaaaaaaaaack! Can’t help but wonder what form this bout of revenge will take. ^^

    • You might want to grab some protective eyewear. I recommend a welding mask. ^__^

  • Poor Xhianil… and certainly poor Lady Red! Though saying that, I think she does deserve having a little zap right now. Especially if that’s Briella having come back from her mission! xD

    • Lady Red’s a big target. She’s made her share of rivals on her way up the ladder over the years. That could’ve been anyone. ~__^

  • Hiorou

    Next time we will se her back! Nice done Briella, but I think you sink yourself in a bigger mess, more messy the tiger-cave episode o_o

    • After what she’s just been through, maybe she thinks she can handle the fallout from this.

      • Hiorou

        Yeah but overconfidence isnt good too, and if I remember well Briella say that fighting magic wasnt her stronger point (actually blasting magic but for the effects can be seen as the same XD)

  • this page screams Elektra, Sombrana or Blue… then again maybe the queen got bored and decided to try target practice on Red. Which at this point I wont be surprised if the queen turns on her own kind and destroys everyone on the planet just to get to Kilani. I mean you have to admit that underneath the surface the queen is absolutely insane.

    • EOTW

      By Blue, do you mean Briella? Blue was a minor character from way back during the eruption, and I don’t think she had anything against Red…. unless she is targeting Yellow next!

      • Yellow? Closest we have to a yellow Dragon is Eone.

        • EOTW

          But…. Red, Blue, and Yellow? Primary colors joke? Funny?…. bah….
          *walks off stage*

          • Maybe I’ll create a background character by that name–most likely an Earth Dragon, due to the color–just for the sake of using that name. She’d get offed like a red-shirted ensign, though, just to fulfill her destiny, as laid out in your joke. Would that work? ^__^

          • EOTW

            I would be honored if you created, then subsequently killed a character because of me!

    • EOTW brings up a good point. Blue is a Water Dragon, but Briella is a Light Dragon who happens to have blue scales and has a beef with Lady Red. And as for the Queen’s condition. You bring up a good point, in that Lady Red has her share of detractors. It could conceivably be any one of the ones you mentioned. As for the Queen, there’s a method to her perceived madness. There’s more to come on all these fronts. Hang tight. ~__^

  • MaveriKat

    Holy crap! I don’t know why, but I just KNOW that had to have been Briella taking a “head shot” at Lady Red. Hope she;s okay.

    • Interesting observation. Let’s see if you’re right… ~__^

      • MaveriKat

        Well, considering all the trouble Briella went at Lady Red’s behest… yeah, it’s going to take a lot more than some Shwarma to make it up to she who is “Too Amazing”.

  • mechafan1224

    Wait! Kilina a monster? Lady Red need to get her facts straight before calling somone a monster. Last i check Kilina rasied chuki like a daughter and Oscura 1. Erased chuki memories 2. Gave her false memories. and 3. Currentlly trying to erase the last spark of Kilinnai left in chuki mind.Funny thing is that spark can probbally never be erased because it is more likly from the heart and you can never erased the memories from the heart. The love that poor Killinai felt for Chuki will always be there. So whos the monster here? Also I approve the headshot my guess is either one of the lighting dragons did it or Briellie hoping its Brielle she is too amazing.

    • Kobra

      I agree that Red needs to reevaluate a few things. And what you said about the princess too.

    • All good points. Let’s see if the Queen has realized any of those. As for Lady Red’s assailant, that shall be revealed. Hang tight… ~__^

      • Tiron

        It already was! ‘Zween’? Yeah.

      • mechafan1224

        I wonder Razor since dragons can rewrite/erase memories does that mean they watch them like an in depth movie to get information during interrogattion? If so I wonder what would happen if Kilianni was captured and her memories were watched by the queen or lady red epecially that part about her trying to help the dragon that gave her the egg? Also i read your pre comic calender story. Nice work interesting how your character design evovled over the years.

        • Memory cleansing is going to be explored in greater depth in this chapter. I hope to have it address at least some of your questions. And thanks for the kind words on the old stories! I’m always looking for small ways to improve the characters’ designs and the overall look and feel of the comic, and I love having you all along for the journey. ^o^

          Briella looking for payback?

          • “Looking for?” “Found” is more like it.

  • EOTW

    My prediction: Briella gets fired/ banished/ leaves on her own accord and teams up with Sombrana and the lightning dragons to lead a revolt against the city. Am I close?

    • I can neither confirm nor deny that. ^__^;

  • Slasheredge

    That had to hurt, and I get the feeling a certain light dragon is getting her revenge.

    • Trust your feelings. ~__^

      • Slasheredge

        Oh I do, and Red shouldn’t have let guard down while chatting.

  • Kobra

    Unbelievable, even after all this time and given what happened to her Red still doesn’t know her name! Oh Red, you re letting me down.
    And trying to put it behind her? If the queen was trying to put it behind her she would have gotten rid of Kilina long ago, not keep her around as a personal play thing. Seems that the problem is the queen is putting her needs before her people. Not good leadership in the least.
    Now on to immediate events… What the hell just happened to Red?!

    • The better question is, WHO the hell just happened to Red. o_O

  • MrAMP

    Well, I guess Lady Red has her head *censored entire phrase here* that she can’t even remember the name of her own assistant. Also, it’s so nice to have some good old fashion revenge! Xd

    • MrAMP

      Also, to be fair, I do agree that she had to be pulled out of the mission. She’s too emotionally involved with her revenge.

    • Just like mom used to make! ^o^

  • Wolfheart811

    HOW IS FUEGANA SO HARD TO REMEMBER?! SHE WAS YOUR ASSISTANT LONGER THAN XHIANIL WORKED FOR YOU!

    ….“zween”? Is Lady Red’s assailant who I think it is?

    • Well, we’ll find out together. ~__^

    ARGH! THE LIGHT IT BURNED!!!!!!

    oh wait. I am immune to that.

    Revenge of Briella! and it HIT right on Red’s Head!

    • Whoever did it, it sure wasn’t a warning shot.

      • The_Rippy_One

        Maybe it was, and they just have terrible aim?

        “I said across her nose, not up it!”

  • Fussed

    Okay… I’ve read this over a few times and I feel that I’ve missed something… And continue to miss something. How is it that we got from Xhianil being recruited to being in prison? >.>

    • Xhianil’s story within this chapter has been composed mostly of flashbacks. She’s been imprisoned due to an incident that happened back in chapter three. I recommend going back to page 251 to refresh your memory on that. An easy way to tell the difference between Past Xhianil and Present Xhianil is that present-day Xhianil has longer hair and tattoos.

  • xhianil won’t be able to fight the tigers this time, unless the ones supplying that sneak attack on lady red are there to free her.

    • We’ll see how it shakes out. If they’re not, then Xhianil could still serve as backup to Lady Red.

  • KibbeD

    Can’t help but feel that Briella put her all into that attack, I think she wanted it to be lethal, or at least, very painful. However, I get the feeling, that despite the passion put towards that strike, her recent weakness will mean that her magic isn’t as strong as it should be, which means that I don’t think she could defeat a well rested, and now pissed off Lady Red. I don’t think her amazingness will save her this time

    • Mr. Al

      She could still have used the element of suprise to press her hands to red’s face and burn her eyeballs out. yes, it could have worked! :3

      • Kobra

        Burn her eyeballs out? With what? She’d be the one burned if she got in close.
