Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here. Sometimes, all it takes is two little words.  Kess and Shie may have patched things up for the moment, but what’s next on Riah‘s agenda?  We shall see… Those of you looking for a soundtrack to this page can once again pull up “Thank U” by Alanis Morissette, particularly for the line, “How ’bout how good it feels to finally forgive you?” The summer/fall convention season continues to take shape, as this week, I got notification that I’ve once again been accepted into the Anime Weekend Atlanta Artist Alley!  This will be my 13th overall appearance in the ATL at the convention that has never failed to be a total blast for me.  For the first time at AWA, I’ll be joined by my fellow Katboxers MasterGodai of Rascalsand Nekonny of Caribbean Blue.  Come on out and meet me, him, the other him, or any combination thereof! And that’s in addition to the recently-added Otakon in Baltimore in August, and my debut appearance at Anime Boston later this month!  Hope to see you at at least one of these shows! On a typical workday, I wake up at 8 AM.  Rather than letting me sleep in this weekend, my body clock has decided to screw with me this weekend, preventing me from sleeping in, no matter how late I go to bed the night before.  Thus, I’m beat!  Off to bed.  Enjoy the new page, and I’ll see you next week.  Take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading!  ^__^ =RazorFox.

    Awww… well done, girls! It’s Miller Time!

    • Mmmm… tipsy Tigerrrrrsss… *Homer groan*

      • MaveriKat

        Say this Three Times Fast! “The Tipsy Tigresses of Troubled Territories Tell Tantalizing Tales of Talented Tail Tricks.”

        • Touché! I’m impressed! ^__^

          • MaveriKat

            And thank you, good sir!

  • ThatOneComment

    I must agree with Shie, mushy stuff, but it looks like Kess grew a little(on the inside). This page certainly made my night. Now I must wait for next week. (Dammit.) Also, Shie looks nice in the last panel. =3

    • The one in the very last panel is Riah, Shie’s little sister, and I’m glad it made your night. I’m happy that “Team Kess” have all gotten their issues smoothed over, at least for the time being. Now I can move on to the next phase of my master plan. Muhu-muhu-huhahahahahahaaaaa!

      • ThatOneComment

        Too many names, I KNEW I would mess up sooner or later. Forgive me, Riah! T.T Also, I’m on to your master plan, foxboy. I know that mischievous queen molester is out there somewhere.

  • Mr. E

    Phew… glad it all worked out in the end… right? (€^_^)

    • Feel the love! ^_^

    • Crabby

      “…A dragon that just shedded her scales.”

      Lady Red better watch out for some blunt stubs.

      • Good observation…

        • Mr. Al

          I don’t get it? ._.

          also, I think the tigers are getting to me! D:
          I almost read her line as “mate when you’re angry” for a split second! waaaah!

          • Crabby

            Briella zapped Lady Red a number of times with a concentrated blast of UV light, effectively giving her a number of sunburns. And as anybody who’s had a sunburn knows, skin tends to peel afterwards. Or as Briella put it, “Happy molting season.”

        Next thing you know, someone in the Dragon’s city comments on how another dragon’s breath couldn’t sear a shaved baby tigress…

        • LOL! ^o^

        • Kobra

          They don’t all breath fire. Matter of fact I don’t think weve seen any of them use a breath weapon.

          • Actually, Flare did use her fire breath to relight Elektra and Amperie’s “Flaming Sunsets” a little while back.

          • CinnamonSalve

            I was under the impression that the flames were a form of Dragon Magic, but if your boat doesn’t float in those waters, then I hope you have a life jacket…

  • MrAMP

    Why do I get the feeling that neither one of them really meant it?

    It’s interesting to see that they can forgive each other yet not fully forgive Kilani, granted the whole they don’t want a target on their backs and what not..

    • Hm. I’m sure we’ll find out whether their apologies carry any weight. For the time being, “Meat Brain” and “Shrimp” are on good terms. ^__^

      • MrAMP

        *Jokingly*

        Yes. Meat Brain and Shrimp will totally make the best of teams. And this will surly not be misconstrued to mean anything else as long as I don’t say anything…dang it.

        • They could form a tag team called “Surf & Turf.” ^o^

          • Mr. E

            Mmmm… surf & turf. *drools*

    Aaaand we didn’t get to see Kess getting hit with a hot metal rod. Razor, I am disappoint.
    By the way, who is the dragon that took out Riah’s eye? Have I totally missed that, or was it omitted on purpose?

    • And you thought I was recycling my ideas word for word. ^__^

      Besides, Kess already got whacked in the head by Ennek’s rock. And Riah’s assailant was revealed on page 287. http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-287/

      • somebody

        Just went back to the whole Khalira arc. Now I want Kess to die even more for killing Flare >:(

  • Wolfheart811

    …..friends? Those two? Is the world coming to an end later than the Mayans predicted? Or does Shie’s face in the second-to-last panel mean this feud isn’t over? Why am I asking YOU all these questions?

    (Just HAD to throw in a Spongebob reference!)

    • Maybe I should ask YOU. What do YOU think the answers to those questions are?

  • DragonForLife

    i hope this unfinished dragon buisniss includes restraining……lots and lots of restraining.

    • Restraining the Dragon? Or the Tigers restraining themselves?

      • Crabby

        Or perhaps lots and lots of spankings???

        What? It’s been a while since I said anything about spankings.

        • They’ll wind up in the Castle Anthrax? o_O

          • DragonForLife

            i was actually thinking something along the road of dragon bondage XD but tiger bondage works too….or both.

  • Surun the Scroll-writer

    Heh i’m doubting the actual truth in that, more like to me a rather interesting surface level apology to help Riah feel better for her own sake. We shall see!

    • Or are they sincere? We shall find out together… ~__^

    This just has me wondering which living exactly Kess is going to respect?

    • Maybe we can give her the benefit of the doubt here and figure that she’s being sincere… Or IS she? o_O

        I highly doubt it…

  • Hiorou

    Excelente pagina como siempre. Espero que ahora volvamos con las dragonas, estoy especialmente intrigada que paso con Briella y como reaccionara cuando despierte. También buen trabajo en hacer notar el cambio de estatura entre Kess y Shie.

    Hey, harás un stream pronto? El de SanValentin fue divertido.

    • Eh, talvez. A veces, me da pena hacer un stream, por lo que soy tan lento en dibujar. Me preocupo de aburrir a mi audiencia. v__v

      • Hiorou

        Yo no me aburrí la ultima ves, fue divertido, en especial contigo hablando a la audiencia, es más interactivo.

  • I can definitely understand him being not okay.
    Explanation from him incoming.

  • BigJ

    But now that the bell is no more, what will happen to the spirits?
    I think Kimi struck a nerve there at the end. I wouldn’t be “alright” after my girlfriend became a ghost defending an island from an evil being unleashed on the world.

    • Gravedigger

      or the fact that she’s dead

  • Borderwolf

    Nekonny, do let Kimi know why you are not “alright”, tell her HOW you feel about her.

    • jboy44

      that’s what’s coming and sense the spirits haven’t moved on yet. I think we have another twist coming.

      • Theknightofblackandgold

        That conversation is going to be very interesting!! What kind of twist are you expecting/hoping for?

        • jboy44

          don’t know i just know something is coming.

    • BlackWind

      its obvious that he’s going to say that her life got “stolen” from her that he really loved her and was coming to terms with being a cat if he could have spent his life with her, and she just gave up her life to destroy the evil threat, but hope he will remember why that happend

  • SFF

    Okay, Kimi in the last panel honestly made me laugh.

    • Borderwolf

      Probably because of the look on her face. She is most likely wanting to say, “But you’re alive!”

  • Trident95

    Please let Kimi come back to life. Let Maya switch with her!

    • Al

      If only. Hell, then we could even ensure that there’s no chance of her being paired with Nekonny at the last minute.

  • Saberphoenix

    poor guy, cat, person

  • James shreves

    Poor neko

  • Cory Tenorio

    Poor guy feels cheated. Can’t blame him.

    • BlackWind

      do you honestly think so man? I mean lets face facts if it wasn’t for Nekonny’s Impulsive gesture to show off that he was supposed to be the “badass” fighter and trying to impress Kimi by attacking the boss on his own and getting knocked on his behind against a building which in turn crumbled on him forcing Kimi to get serious after the monster made that taunt (i’ll allow you 1 hit before sending you to be with your mate) quip that made Kimi go full power and use up her lifeforce, if it wasn’t for that She would NOT have had to DIE! or am I mistaken eh?

      • Cory Tenorio

        I wouldn’t call it showing off. More like trying to defy fate since he really cared about kimi.

      • Nekonny

        As they say, foresight is 20/20

        • jboy44

          but you made that happen. so you can’t really say it’s foresight more like your plan.

        • BlackWind

          uhh….. not to sound dense or anything but what do you mean bythat?

  • Tomix

    I feel it … I am certain that I was freakin’ right ! No offence, no no no no no, but you totally ruined the end of the story… 1 time I wanted to see a happy ending … 1 TIME … And I again get to see that those that would make the most beautiful couple will end up in, like, different galaxies … Why not give them a chance to be together? Why make thousands of children all over the world cry coz of them? (Joke here, laugh please 😀 )

    Well… I wanna read till the story is over to see how wrong I am here ^_^
    … But still, you shouldn’t have sacrificed her, because it’s not just her, Nekonny as well…

    • SFF

      Its not over yet, dude.

      • Tomix

        That’s why I wanna read it ’till the end to see how wrong I was here 😉

        • Theknightofblackandgold

          I like your tactic! Trying to make the author feel guilty and work to change the ending…BRILLIANT!! SIMPLY BRILLIANT!

    • Dakota Miyamoto

      Yeah, I’ll be honest, the whole Pyrrhic victory thing has gotten so overused in entertainment these days, they felt that a happy ending is too cliché, so many creators try to veer away from happy endings that the pyrrhic ending itself has gotten tired, clichéd and done to death

  • AnonAnon

    Lets face it, whether it was Nekonny or Kimi who died in the last fight the other would’ve been upset about it no matter what 😐

    Sure he’s /physically/ okay but he’s still not exactly “alright” with how things turned out :<

  • Jdog

    I for some reason feel so pissed(i dont know why) It makes me a pyscho. Everything I see is tinted red and i really want to kill things.

  • Jdog

    Also are you doing any other comics after this one or continueing this one?

    • Theknightofblackandgold

      I have heard that he is continuing Tina Online.

  • Bianca

    I am so sorry. This makes me feel like a terrible person to point this out, but no one else has said it, so… THAT IS THE WRONG KIND OF ITS IN THE FIRST PANEL.

    I am deeply sorry for that outburst. The grammar nazi in me had a little heart attack.

  • Mr. Al

    I hate to be one of those guys, but this is technically Mayas fault and if she doesn’t show up here in one way or another: either to redeem herself or commit suicide due to the guilt, it will never have a proper ending. We don’t want to sweeten it like a kids show: Maya has to be forced to face this outcome of her actions and make a choice: Redemption or Denethor-style death.

    • SFF

      You DO realize that Jormungar was brainwashing her, so she can’t be held fully responsible for what she did to the Bell, right?

      • Mr. Al

        You DO realize that she pretty much did it out of free will, aka jealousy. evil doesn’t take remote control of you, it prays on your own faults and weaknesses already there. And I never said she is at fault for everything, but she went and messed things up before they had a chance to prepare and make a solid plan out of jealousy. Of course Nekonny COULD just make it “herpderp she was being mind-controlled” but that would just be terribly poor storytelling and extremely anticlimactic. The fact still stands: she has to face the outcome of HER actions one way or another.

        • SFF

          Personally, if he goes that route, I wouldn’t mind it, because at least to me it was pretty clear she was being controlled/possessed.

          • Mr. Al

            Well he could get away with “he controlled my body so i couldn’t do anything”, but it would STILL be poor writing compared to a more mature, in-depth and advanced explanation of the entire consequences of selfish acts, jealousy and general misuse of free will.

            I mean take Dart Vader, he prolly wouldn’t exist (at least not in the way he did) if not for Palpatine, but it’s not like Palps used mind control: it was all about making him do stuff by his own free will, and if one dumps that important piece of any legend, myth or saga, it doesn’t work well when you’re trying to write a “fantasy” kind of story.

  • Winner

    What. Questions:

    1# Why does Kimi have to go?

    2# If Kimi goes, doesn’t everyone who turned into the warrior goes as well? or at least using the bell goes as well?

    3# So does that mean that Kimi is gone and Neko is going to be alone? Way to screw that ending up. If anyone needs to go its the island chick.

    4# Why the hell are the spirits are going? Darkness can’t not be destroyed with destroying light at the same time. Ying and Yang philosophy people. Jesus.
    5# Does Neko get his human form back at least? And doesn’t this leave him broken and changed from this little VA-CA?

    • Mr. Al

      You claim to believe in Ying-Yang and use The Lord’s Name in vain? I think you’re comment just flew out of the window. OFC evil can never be fully destroyed at it’s universal core by anyone of us, because it exists in everything: that is what the corruption is about: it has corrupted universe so it is now part of nature, but once there was only light, and eventually it will go back to only being light after darkness goes down fighting. Ying-Yang is about as wrong as those who believe there are no light or darkness: They are always at conflict in every possible way, both physically and metaphysically, whether we can see it or not, but they are not striking any form of “balance”, it’s not a war about keeping “balance” in check, it’s a war to drive the other one out and lay claim/protect the universe. There are sometimes gray zones that appear during the war, but that is because of several factors such as free will, or being in the “eye of the storm” of the spiritual warfare, but they are ALWAYS temporal and sooner or later all grey zones shifts into either light or darkness. Those who believe darkness and light needs to coexist and strike a balance, are merely does who do not know how to see the continuous bloody war between them, but the chief difference is, while light would gladly correct you so you won’t be in the wrong, darkness is fed just as much by does who willingly follows them, by those who do not believe in it, and those who have misconceptions about it, such as the incorrect “Ying-Yang” myth.
