Comic 329 published on 80 Comments on Comic 329

Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here.

Looks like we’re peering in to Xhianil‘s memories again.  Will Flare‘s impulsiveness be her undoing?  Stay tuned…

Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can pull up “The Day I Tried To Live” by Soundgarden.

By the time you read this, I will be far, far from home on a weeklong vacation to my old hometown of Houston, Texas.  That’s right, your friendly neighborhood fox is a native Texan.  Make of that what you will.  But I moved from there 20 years ago, so I figure it’s high time I went back and revisited my old stomping grounds, and saw my childhood home with a more mature, wiser set of eyes.

To make a potentially long story short, there will not be a comic next Monday.  Sorry!  The comic will return on Monday, July 15.  Bank on it!

Until then, let’s hope Flare takes Lady Red‘s–at that time, Miss Red’s–words to heart.  Stay tuned.

Take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading!  See you on the 15th!

=RazorFox.

    Okay back in the past again!

    It’s a pity that we kind of know what is going to happen because of the whole calendar and what not.

    Also, have fun in Texas! Make sure to get plenty of water because it’s so freaking hot T_T

    • Wolfheart811

      *GASP* So Fiera being orphaned, and Flare acting on impulse, and another flashback, and I’m just now learning who Ziza is, and………WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

      I’m sorry, I’m in a sugar rush. Chocolate and chocolate, the occasional pixy stick, and more CHOCOLATE!!! Sorry, again.

        Slow down on the glucose or else we’ll have a nuclear meltdown- oh wait, toooo late! ED

        A whole wheat doughnut should fix that.

        What lady red says is interesting. What separate them from the tigers is there rationale and forethought. Now the question is what if there is a tiger besides kilanni who actually plan and think ahead but is sort of the black sheep of the tribe, and tries to tell everyone thay need to learn a thing or two from their enemies like planning, forethought and a centralized unity. Pretty much starts getting backlash from some backlash from her fellow comrades fro thuinking that way.

          Also starts a civil war or revoulation.

        • She may be out there. We might meet her one day…

      • Yup! And there’s more where that came from.

    • Mr. E

      I can’t believe that you’re visiting my home state! That’s incredible!!! 8D

      • I’m in Houston, all up in this beeeeyotch!

        • Mr. E

          Yeah… too bad I live in Austin, with expenses, high gas prices, and intense Texas heat. 🙁

    • Thanks! I did do a lot of walking today. Weather was surprisingly unwretched.

  • MaveriKat

    AH! More Flashbacks! Ouch! Sad to hear that Flare was the cause of Fiera being orphaned… at least Blue took her in.

    • She wound up in good hands, I think.

    oh oh. this look interesting :). I cant wait for July 15 but with all the amazing pages RazorFox is doing, i can be patient for that long.

    I hope we get more past moment like that. This is the only thing i can say… Sorry.

    • Well, you might be in luck. I’ve done each of the two previous Xhianil flashbacks as three-page episodes. Will the trend continue? Stay tuned.

    I don`t know what is worst, die been burn with fire or stave. Both of them can be very slows ways to die :l

    Anyway I hope you have fun Razor! I leave here the link to the page with Lady Red and Eone as guess character>> http://www.furaffinity.net/view/10970561/ Hope you like it when you see it n_n

  • somebody

    Awesome, I love Xhianil flashbacks. Or, rather, I love Xhianil, in general. Really interesting character. Pretty cool page, too. Really dig the lighting on the last 3 panels. All-in-all, I think you’ve earned this week’s pat on the back, Mr. Fox.

    • Thank you! I had to knock this page out quickly to make it in time for my Texas trip. I wanted to experiment with the lighting effects. Glad you like it!

    One of the major differences I notice between Tigers and Dragons is that Dragon’s have a more centralized government with emphasis on military lifestyle. Tigers seem more tribal with more of a clan structure and emphasis on family and individualism. Dragons are sedentary, Tigers are hunter-gatherer (there’s a word for it, I can’t remember it and that annoys me). This is just a guess, we haven’t really seen Tiger society at it’s core. Personally, I think the writer is biased in favour of the dragons, since we get to see a lot more of them and their society than we do the Tigers.

    • Kobra

      That’s because tigers don’t have that much of a society to show.

    • Chuck

      Is the word you’re looking for nomadic?

      • Philip Bourque

        Yes! That’s it! I hate it when words escape me. Thanks.

    • Chuck is right, in that the Tigers are largely nomadic, and you’re right that I need to show more of Tiger society at large. I have plans for that soon. Hang tight…

  • Kobra

    Have to agree with Red on this. It’s better to save a fellow dragon than to do something that may kill you’re enemy but cost you a fellow soldier.
    Unfortunatly we all know by her fate that Flair doesn’t listen to this and take it to heart.

    • Perhaps, but I wouldn’t go picking out headstones just yet.

      • Mr. E

        (€ -n•)?

    wow, flare really got chewed out there. pretty sure if I looked real close, I’d see some dragon fang-marks in her hide. It also looks like xhianil’s getting some lessons in between training.

    • A lesson learned vicariously is still a lesson learned.

  • Hioroi

    My god! Don`t know what is worse, been burn alive with fire or stab to death. Both of them seem like painful and slow ways to die :l And notice Lady Red hair has change to something in between her old look and her new look.

    On the good new, I finish the comic page with Lady Red and Eone as guess characters, must said they look great :3 (ot at least I liked their look) Already send you a note but I guess you won`t see until next week.

    Hope you have fun on Texas.

    • I look forward to seeing them! And thanks for the well-wishes on the trip. I’m having an amazing time here with a lot of memories coming back to me.

  • RJ_Prime

    Flashbacks like this might be traumatic enough for Xhianil, but a rather wild plotline theory occurred to me: if higher-up wants her to do her duties completely unhindered by emotions, they could have her memories erased/altered just like Lumina’s, along the lines of Total Recall (1990). I do hope it won’t be the case, because I’ve grown fond of the pink dragon (who, I think, has that girl-next-door look about her, and of course, her tragic backstory) and I don’t want to see her being reduced to a really cold killing machine.

    P.S.: I’m not sure if there’s already a theme song for Xhianil, but my personal favourite would be “Violet Hill” by Coldplay, especially for the chorus and the bridge.

  • Kobra

    Still find it funny that they continue to follow a Queen that doesn’t keep her emotions and impulses in check. Nor does she think things threw.

    • Mr. E

      Definition of irony: Queen Oscura. Wait wat…? /:(

      • Tech

        Well, she’s probably got her picture next to the word, like Homer Simpson does with “lucky” and “idiot”
