Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here. So, try as she might, it looks like Kess just can’t avoid crossing paths with her sister Kilani.  Can the so-called traitor hold her breath long enough for the group to pass?  Stay tuned… Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can pull up “Undertow” by R.E.M. This week, I’m set to make my triumphant re-return to Baltimore as I hit Otakon 2013, my tenth overall Otakon appearance!  Look for me in the Artist Alley at table BB03, at the far back wall of the Artist Alley if you’re coming in from the Otterbein lobby, or by hanging a hard left as soon as you come in the doors from the Pratt Street lobby.  Either way, just look for the Draconia Chronicles banner featuring Kess and the “Blue Ram” Lady Chiara.  Commission drawings, prints, and posters will be available, though I’m just happy to say hi to my fellow Draconiacs!  So if you’re a fan attending Otakon this coming weekend, you’re always welcome at my table! On a related note, due to the convention, there will be no comic next week.  The comic will return on Monday, August 19. And speaking of updates, like I reported last week, my real-life “day” job has me on a new schedule.  Whereas I used to work weekdays, I now work nights, Tuesday through Saturday, thus throwing the comic’s production schedule for a loop.  Those of you who followed the comic closely–like REALLY closely–know that, while I advertise the update as happening on Monday, it actually happens late Sunday night here in the Eastern United States where I am.  Well, I’m happy to say that the update day will continue to be Monday, at least in the Western Hemisphere, but now it’ll just happen on Monday nights.  Still Monday, mind you, but much later in the day. So, if you’re a weekly follower, and your routine has you checking either Sunday nights or Monday mornings, I’m sorry you won’t get your new-comic fix at that time, but if you check back later in the day and I’m not attending a convention, then you’ll find a new comic Monday night.  Bank on it! Anyway, it’s time to get ready for Otakon.  I hope to see at least a few of you this weekend in Baltimore, and for the rest of you, hang in there and I’ll be back in two weeks.  Take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading! =RazorFox.   UPDATE:  Due to various factors, the new page has been postponed.  Watch my Twitter feed or the Draconia Chronicles Facebook page for info on updates.  Thanks for your patience.

    Nice dodge on Kilani’s part. She’s trying to get away from the others but it seem the others are making that harder said than done, especially if her body now has limits because of Sombrana’s attack. Hope they, especially Kilani (she need it), do well in the future.

    • We’ll see if the damage Sombrana did to Kilani last fall continues to be a hindrance… ~__^

  • Mr. E

    Ouch… I hope that you can keep up with both schedules after all… I’m anxious about Lumina’s fate.

    • I’m confident I can. Since the work week is a day later than before, so too is the comic. Everything in the story will continue as planned. ^__^

  • Slasheredge

    Wow she leave in the opposite direction and they still end up near her. Are the tiger bad luck or is Kilani a natural tiger attract-er?

    • All Kess said was to pick a direction and start walking, figuring that as long as it wasn’t the very same direction, they’d just get further and further apart. Three hundred sixty degrees, though, and they wound up choosing the same one. ^__^

      • DarkMyste

        yep and that makes for one sordid tracker

  • mastromaster

    just out of curiosity, how would dragons and tigers react to humans?

    • Both being mammals, Tigers would probably react with a bit of curiosity at this hairless ape. As long as you don’t come across as being dangerous or delicious, then they might just ignore you. Dragons might see a sapient mammal as being a Tiger sympathizer, so they might not go as easy on humans.

      But relax, there’s no threat of humans ever showing up in the Draconiaverse. ^__^

      • DarkMyste

        All of a sudden human baby is born and now added to the food chain..heh

      • Hagane Gosuto

        I think that there SHOULD be humans, but only referred to as myths. A parody of our mentality on dragons.

        • I’ve actually thought about doing that before. I just need to find the right time to use it. ^__^

          • Scow2

            Honestly? I think it would be lame. It’s been done before in many, MANY ways, but it always falls flat to me.

      • Mr. E

        Hey what does that make me, chopped haggis? /:(

    • Chuck

      Probably as an easy prey. We have very little fur, no claws, no scales, no fangs, no venom, no magic. We can’t fly, we can’t run very fast and our swimming is pathetic. We are the Spam of the animal world.

      • Tech

        That’s what guns are for. Point, click, who’s dinner now?

  • mechafan1224

    Fate is a funny thing isnt it. Kilanni tried to get away but instead she ended up closer than ever before to the group. I hope Kilanni revel her self. And maybe stand up to kess about a certain subject if it comes up.

    • If she were that sure of herself, would she be holding her breath, hiding underwater? ^__^

      • mechafan1224

        Lets hope she doesnt start drowning before they leave.

  • mastergodai

    hopefully she can hold her breath for a long time XD

    • Well, she’s going to have to hold it for two weeks. ^__^ Though the in-comic time will hopefully be far less.

  • MrAMP

    By goodness gracious! Is it just me or do the tigers and dragons really have some messed up perception of their opposite races? Seriously, Briella looks like some kind of dragoon/lizard hybrid now XD

    • It’s just a glimpse into the Tiger mind. You don’t need me to tell you that Dragons aren’t though of very highly, so there’s a mentality that their enemies aren’t people, but animals instead.

  • william

    wow, so much tension right now, the current troop of tigress’ marching by, hoping to find some allies to help in their plight. meanwhile, not even 5 feet away, the castaway tigress hides in the river, hoping not to run into her old troop and cause even more arguments. me, personally, i hope they just walk by her and move on, but knowing how this story has gone on before, i’m betting she’ll be found out by the twins.

    • Pray tell, whatever gave you that idea? ~__^

  • ladiesprime217

    I can quite understand the scheduling problems, seeing recently how some KatBox and non-KatBox comics have their schedules thrown out of whack. Perhaps the consolation here is that I might find some time writing some fan fiction in the two weeks’ interval and post it on the KB forums. The only hint I can give about the story is that it will NOT feature torn jugular veins. >.>;

    • I love hearing about fanfics! I don’t have the time to read them, but you’re always free to write them and share them! All I ask is that you acknowledge the source material. Otherwise, go nuts! ^o^

  • AnsLOD

    How long can Kilani hold her breath, I wonder?

    • I’m not sure, but I’m sure she’s hoping the others don’t dilly-dally in crossing the stream.

  • Josh.C

    Good thing Tigers love water.

    Seems odd that Kess keeps crossing paths with her sister now. Her scent seems to be a misleading lead for Kess and her friends.

    • Or it could be that, as sisters, destiny might keep pulling them together, perhaps?

  • dundee204

    i wonder how they will react when they see what happened to the tigers on the border

    • Depends on whether their path winds up including that.

  • ElektraFan

    I just hope Kilani won´t hold her breath long enough and stop Kess before she goes on another killing spree only to be captured by the dragons again. Besides if i was Kilani i would rather be a “traitor” from her sister point of view than an insane killing machine like Kess. There is no excuse to kill an unborn child in cold blood and that is not an attitude of a warrior but an attitude of a monster. And although Kess said that one must respect the living people in other to avenge the death ones, i won´t belive in any word of what she said unless she puts action to those words.

    • Kess is a complex gal. She may be a hothead, but I believe she also has the power to surprise, though Kilani might also turn into a surprise, herself, if her lungs don’t hold out. ^__^

    • Mr. E

      Hear-hear and Ay-MEN bro!
      (^0^)/

  • ladiesprime217

    BTW, can I take one guess at a pop culture reference you might have inserted here? “Nevermind”?

    • Ooh, interesting! No, I was not putting in a homage to Nirvana, but i can totally see how one would see that. ^__^

  • Surun the Scroll-writer

    I believe that this may best summarize her hopes upon this: “To be at center is to be at best, hold that breath and it will be the least of your worries.” granted I doubt Kess will once again be happy to see her sister. Granted she’s so bull headed, not to mention things just got heftier for Kilani~, she’s been recognized by scent! Likely the twins may find her.

    • Gotta love that keen sense of smell many Tigers have.

  • Sketchy Sounds

    I feel this too is a fitting soundtrack: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Yw5jkAHgME

    • I played the bejeezus out of that game when I first got it in the summer of 1992. To this day, 21 years later, even if I’m not playing or watching the game at the moment, the drowning music still makes my pulse quicken and makes me panic a little bit. ^__^

  • Nathan Allmon

    if she is found easy response is if you want me to get as far away from you as possible then why are you following me

  • Kobra

    Oh com on now. Holding you’re breath underwater to try and avoid her? Isn’t this a bit childish?

    • Hey, desperate times call for childish measures. ^__^

    • Nathan Allmon

      not really Imo. she has an injured foot so running off isn’t an option and would be even more childish than to hide. she just seems to want to avoid confrontation with her sister

  • MaveriKat

    LOL! Good thing tigers are known for their affinity with water.

    • And who doesn’t like a wet Tigress? ~__^

  • Brockster

    For some reason I want one of the tigers to learn ki and go all galic gun on the scalies…mwahaha!

    • “Call me ‘The Striped Grasshopper.'”

  • Chocothunda

    ! (<–insert Metal Gear Sound here)

  • Agen

    I know tigers like water, but have to wonder how long this one can hold her breathe under it 🙂

    • Let’s hope the answer is “long enough.” ^__^;

  • CinnamonSalve

    Thus a journey of epi–aw, who am I kidding, someone is about to get schooled in the ritualistic cycle of Karma, and it certainly isn’t going to be our Delegate of Peace here.

    • I know the answer to your question, and I’m not saying a word. ~__^

  • James-Polymer

    Razorfox, are you all right? I noticed the comic hadn’t updated, and you hadn’t posted in the comments or updated the description in a few days. Is everything okay?

    • Hiorou

      He did said he was going to Otakon this past weeked (actually is in the description of this comic) so this pages wasnt going to be a comic page, plus they change his hours of works so he did have to change a bit this strategy while doing pages.

    • Thanks for your concern, but Hiorou’s right. Sorry I didn’t put out any other reminders, but the blog beneath the comic does clearly state that I’d be taking the week off. I’m already working on the next page. Since I was away from a real computer, I didn’t really have a chance to add any other comments. But I’ll be back next Monday. ^__^

      • James-Polymer

        …>_<
        D'oh. I kind of glossed over the description and totally missed that part. I'm sorry.

        Anyway, hope you had fun at Otakon. If I wasn't such a dedicated hermit, I'd be tempted to start attending these convention-type things. 😉

  • sulka

    hey razor fox have you seen my little pony frienship is magic equestria girls
    i like the music sound track this is our big night I also like it when shunsetshimmer got defeated and started crying

  • Mr. E

    (Underwater)
    €: (in a diving suit) “(Geeez, does she EVER shut up? With the way things are going, this war will only get worse and worse! I just hope that something better show her the error of her ways… ( gets a mischevious look on his face while the whites of €’s eyes glow a firey orange and his irises glow green) Or else… (giggly) SOME-body better STOP me!!!)”

  • sulka

    hey razor fox have you seen my little pony equestria girls

  • sulka

    so youve seen my little pony equestria girls

  • Agen

    I would take it that the color of those leaves/bushes are in reference to the movie: Horton hears a Who? by chance 🙂

  • Fava

    worry, about how long she able hold her breath till they gone.

  • Richard

    I love this comic, I loce it asoso much!!! but I just cannot get the charaxctrs straight (espwcially the tigers, the dragons are eaaier to twll apart)) theres to many!!!!

  • Regulos14

    I thought Tina’s Kitten-Sense would be kicking in about now. 🙁

    • DarkMyste

      give it time… it hasn’t kicked in yet now that kimi alive

      • Radar

        theres an awareness delay

        • ariedren

          It takes a while for the feels to travel. They aren’t the fastest thing.

  • BlackWind

    well i guess the “payment” wasn’t so bad (even if it meant one extra kiss from both of them XD) hopefully that’s over n done with i thought there would be more to it but this is cool, heh heh tho Kimi is still kinda jealous type girl not to be messed with,
    btw does Kimi still possess the Nekocat power within her? cause those glowing eyes were the ones she had when she went ultimate form

    • Simcha-Yitzchak Lerner

      Nope – look at the twins eyes in the previous comic.

      • Mihari

        I was afraid people would be confused by that, why I told him not to use the softer glow on the twins one… ah well.

        • Simcha-Yitzchak Lerner

          OK, now I’m confused.

          Are you saying that Kimi’s eyes were showing leftover effect from her having been a guardian, or are you saying that everyone’s eyes were glowing just as a sfx to show emotion?

          • Mihari

            I will leave it that the twins eye effects were done to show gleaming earnest desire or something silly. Like a anime eye twinkle, the effect isn’t as nice unanimated, but nothing we could do about that. Kimi… well I’ll leave that open to interpretation. ;3

          • Radar

            angry Kimi has glowing eyes

  • Hfar

    Now kissu!

  • Toshiro Tushima

    Uh oh! Muna and Mika, you two are going to get it!

    Good thing that both Nekonny and Kimi already made their first kiss.

  • Cory Tenorio

    Girls….run.

  • Simcha-Yitzchak Lerner

    Talk about bait and switch…

    Definitely NOT what I was expecting! 😀

  • Jayson Milyaro

    Wait how come he was saying “thanks” a third time?

    • Aaron Morton

      I just figured he was just gonna say “Thank you both” or something like that to them again. You know, like cementing the fact that he was thankful for there help.

      • Shadowkey392

        That’s my guess too.

      • Mihari

        Correct

  • BigJ

    *Phew* and here I was thinking it was going to be more than just a kiss. Those two better run now cuz there be a jealous girlfriend on the rampage, even if it was worth it.
    And here come the others, late to the party I see.

  • The_Rippy_One

    Them interest payments. Always always, they are the catch…

  • Tomix

    Haha well, that was a bit unexpected 😛 And as the story goes, he didn’t kiss both at the same time, right? If he kissed 1 and she did that, why didn’t he expect the other sister to do so too? xD And Kawaaaaiiiiii ~~

  • Nathan Smith

    I knew it wouldn’t be what was being insinuated! Great minds think alike eh Nekonny?

  • SFF

    This is the funniest comic page I’ve read all week. XD

  • Simcha-Yitzchak Lerner

    Actually, given the show the twins put on in http://cblue.katbox.net/comic/066-ne-ko-ni/ he is very lucky to be getting off with just a kiss.

  • Shadowkey392

    ROFLLMAO! For a second there I thought they were gonna do…something else.

  • Tiennos

    I think this is the cutest page in the whole comic. D’awwwww!

  • AnonAnon

    (°3°)(°3°)(°3°)

    • Simcha-Yitzchak Lerner

      Are you saying that someone is about to be given the third degree?

      • AnonAnon

        Nah, but possibly something else involving “three” :3

        • Simcha-Yitzchak Lerner

          I was about to ask if it was a “:3” when I noticed that you’d already used it!

          Since we’ve already ruled out something involving the number “four”, I’ll have to think this one over a bit more.

  • Nick Hodgson

    WOO!

  • cr1ms0n t1ger

    Nekonny just gets all the _____.
    The empty space is for the word that means cat and… something else…

  • Trey

    Wait so all that was over a kiss? *Sighs* Should have seen that coming.
