The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter One—Page 18

Wait — are those… tentacles? What kind of comic is this?!

Looks like The Platinum Priestess is making an impression—she’s only been “on-screen” for a few pages and she already has her own Fan Art! “Platinum Priestess” by Jeremy Thew—do check it out!

Oh, and…

***THIS IS A BONUS PAGE!***

The THIRD bonus page in a row! Holy stars! That’s incredible! You all are AMAZING!

And look below! It’s been just a few days and we’re well over halfway to the next bonus page!

Special thanks go out to long-time supporters Daniele W. & Matt H. (both making their second generous donations to The Young Protectors!) and a warm welcome and grateful bow go out to new supporters Angie N., Paul H., Jacob K. & Ryun H. for their generous donations over the last few days!

Big hugs go out to new friends of The Young Protectors Nicolas M., Donna F. & Amberly H. and long-time friend Daniel N. for their super generous $25 donations! (And this makes Daniel’s fourteenth super generous donation to this comic!)

Superhero strength hugs go out to new The Young Protectors super-friends Desiree K., Travis R. & Jake S. and also to long-time super-friends Adriane L. (who makes their fourth amazingly generous donation to The Young Protectors!) & Meagan S. (who makes their ninth amazingly generous donation to The Young Protectors and who put us over the top for this bonus page!) for their amazingly generous $50 donations!

(Also, an extra tip-of-the-cap to first-time readers and donators Jake S. and Amberly H. who, in the last 24 hours, gave play-by-play commentary of their reactions while reading The Young Protectors [and Jake did it on both of my webcomics!], which was tons of fun for me to follow as those comments bounced into my email inbox. :D )

And ZOMG!, deeply humbled, floored and very, very grateful hugs go out to super-friend Alexandra Z. for their stunningly generous $100 donation—Alexandra’s third $100 donation to The Young Protectors! Wow! You ARE a SUPERHERO, my friend! Thank you so, so much!

My thanks go out to all the amazing donators over the last few days. Three bonus pages in a row—and nobody has even taken their clothes off yet! (Although The Platinum Priestess might have a head-start there…) Seriously, it’s a huge, huge morale boost for the artists and me to get this kind of response and, on a personal note, it’s coming at a time of some overwhelming stuff and it’s been a big bright spot to see how much you all have been enjoying the recent pages. You all make my world a wonderful place. Thank you! :)

So… rather than merely being some kind of cosmic door attendant, it looks like The Platinum Priestess has a few more tricks up her sleeve! (And, um, Kyle’s sweatshirt.) What do you think she’s going to do next? Tune in this Saturday to find out!

DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! Edit Oct. 24 6:56 PM: Holy cow! In record time y’all managed to hit the bonus target again!

    MANNERS, MISS LADY.  MANNERS.

    Somehow, i am thinking they are not her strong suit, judging by her smug face in panel 3, which just makes me want to hug her.  Somebody in this story needs to give Duncan a hard time.  <3

    And OMG, this yaoi fangirl comes with her own toolkit.  How many of you are wishing for your own Instant Tentacle Stick right now?

    Wow, it’s been said before and it bears repeating. Tentacle staff of awesome! I was really wondering how Kyle was going to be admitted anywhere in those grey sweats of his.

    And another huge shout out to the artists – LOVE Platty’s smug face in panel 3, can practically hear Duncan growling at her under his breath to stop holding up the proceedings, and the look on Duncan’s face in the last panel? Yeah, he’d like him some deep-fried hot shot on a tentacle stick right about now…

    And now on to the main event – are we seducing the boy away from the path of light, or just away from his virtue? Is there a difference? My thoughts are that Duncan is going to spend the night introducing new ideas and demolishing more of Kyle’s youthful naivete, while stealing kisses the entire time. Here’s hoping!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/jay.demetrick Jay Demetrick

      Or will that be “bares” repeating…?  ;)

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

      Heh. It’s all The Platinum Priestess, I can assure you. It’s just what she would do in this situation and in her current mood. :)

  • abcx33

    Can I just express my love for this comic? I love the characters I barely even know yet and everytime I see there is a new page I smile. I love the art style beyond what words can express. I cannot get over the unique outfits, names and powers of the heroes and villains. I’m going to go to bed now wondering what outfit the sparkly tentacles have in mind for our flamboyant hero. Thank you.

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

      You’re very welcome, abcx33. Thank you very much for all the kind words! I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying it! :)

    One that understands its audience and is not afraid to reciprocate with fanservice? 
     
    Seriously, that was hilarious.  I foresee a bonus page next week as well…

    Ooh, poor, naive Kyle. You should really think about what you say, especially around these guys. <3 The Priestess is freaking fantastic. And I'm excited to see Kyle all dressed up…

    …two hundred dollars a plate?! Man, I wish a sexy supervillain would take ME out to a place like that…

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

      Heh. Be careful what you wish for…

  • http://twitter.com/Teague Shan Kight

    I just wanted to say that I think it’s awesome that a couple of the characters look like they are older. Ok, so far they are the supposed villains, but still, you don’t see it much unless it’s some sort of AU, or altered timeline, or special plotline. In comic books I mean. For awhile it seemed like Charles Xavier, and Magneto were the oldest Super Hero characters, and maybe Dr Strange. I never really saw an older super heroine or lady villain . I admit I’m a casual comic nerd lady at best, so someone more involved might correct me. Never the less, the compliment stands. 

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

  • Vengrov Resident

    oh god, after seeing this page I would so drop 400$ for an instand bonus page if it meant MR. duncan looked away with a blushing face while kyle was shirtles int he air. huba huba x.x

      Do you think Platinum will insist he change his boxers as well?!

  • One_Traveller

    As a Woman of A Certain Age, who’s hair has gone more silver than black, I love Sircea. She’s a sexy older woman, and if I was as fit as her I’d probably dress like that too! (At least some of the time-it would be great for cons:)

    I’m really enjoying the comic, Alex. Thank you for all your hard work in sharing it with us, and your presence in the comments. You seem like a genuinely nice person, and whatever the overwhelming stuff you’re going through right now may be, I hope you see the light at the end of the tunnel soon. We’re pulling for you:)

    • One_Traveller

       ~And tentacles-awesome! My husband walked by, read this over my shoulder, and chuckled:)

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

      Thank you so much! You comment has me grinning here—the response to this page has been a really fun bright spot to my week and I’m glad that you’re enjoying this scene and The Platinum Priestess. :D 

      (And it tickles me to hear that we got a chuckle out of your husband. The Platinum Priestess has powers even I cannot fathom…)

      Thank you also for your kind encouragement. Things will indeed get better, I’m sure, but it looks like it will take a while. But it’s very nice to have such awesome readers leaving comments on the updates.

        You mean there are non-macramé associations that go along with tentacles?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4DLOB4FUGXCGAVWL4ENV5G2NOM Vincent

    Oh joy, stripped by magical tentacles.
    I like her, she has style and is straight to the point. I admire that in crazy witches.

  • http://the-tribulations-of-rex.blogspot.com/ ℜεx GαηчMε∂ε. (Super Hero.)

    i won’t mention anything about where mister kyle’s hands are in panel three.

    (but Sircea “Sylvia” Strippera and Duncan Urhinepartz don’t seem to mind much though.)

    what i shall mention is that apparently Sylvia’s capable of doing air combos too; how many ræps in kyle’s keister will all those tentacles make before he lands?
    and will sylvia off-the-ground him with her “magick staff” and launch kyle back into the air for further mental and buttumnal scarring?

    (can i play as ⓟⓛⓐⓣⓘⓝⓤⓜ ⓟⓡⓘⓔⓢⓣⓔⓢⓢ, Tsunami, and ⓣⓘⓣⓐⓝⓘⓤⓜ ⓣⓘⓣⓘⓛⓛⓐⓣⓞⓡ in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 4, tag-teaming The Ginger Flame•Thrower?)

    look at sylvia down there, meanwhile — enjoying herself a little bit too much. :-D

    and mister sean annorhi looks like he has seen this process go down (i wish) a million times before already.
    (is there something you want to tell us, anhi?

    and will this information compel sparky to make an even more horrified face than he is in panel 1?)

  • Feverfew_M

    What is it with supervillains and their tendency to sweep poor little heroes off their feet? :D
    Awesome page!

  • Lithekitty

    I’ve seen enough hentai to know where this is headed.

  • Dee Dee

    Oh I’m so slow! I’d thought it was a “dinner date with friend along”, not “dinner date with Anni alone”. I’d been wondering if they’d even let her in, dressed like that.

    200 bucks a plate?! Is that Hong Kong Dollars or American dollars? That’s some very pricey dim sum. 

  • http://twitter.com/hinakiba777 Holly

    How does Nice clothes= rape tenatcles?! HOW?!

    Okay I know it’s supposed to be her magic changing him into other clothes, but it looks positively sexual. And not in a good way. All this makes me think of is the “Why do birds suddenly appear” scene from Mirrormask. (if you don’t know the scene, go look it up on youtube. It’s a kids movie, but you will curse my name when you watch it.)
    Poor Kyle, he thought she meant she was just going to present him with an outfit. Not disrobe him with magic tentacles!I love the banter between Platinum and Anni, it’s just fun. Also I still stand firmly on my “seduction by brandy” theory. If it is a fine dining establishment, there will be brandy. Also I love the range of emotions on Kyle in this page. Angry, confused, resigned, scared/confused. It’s awesome!

  • Yukiness

    I love that our Magical Cougar (a term I am more than pleased to add to my vocabulary) looks her age. She has laugh lines that are not over the top. It’s a refreshing take on the “I am one hundred kajillion years old yet look no more prepubescent than you kind of character”. It is not a cliche that I preticularly hate, it makes me scratch my head though.

    I laughed at the last panel much longer than I should have.

    • http://twitter.com/hinakiba777 Holly

      Yeah the pre-pubescent witch look always confuses me a lot. I mean, if they look Post-pubescent despite being eons old, I get that. They are simply using their magic to keep themselves at peek health on a cellular level.

      So if you are 2000 and look 20 to 30 ish, that I get. But if you look like your 12 I am CONFUSED!

      • Yukiness

        And her appearing early 40′s is refreashing because it makes her a bit more mortal in my eyes, and that’s probably why I like her so much. Her badassness reveals to me a sense of effort; she worked very hard over the years to be that powerful so she has every right to flaunt it.

    Again, panel by panel reactions…

    Panel 1 – Yeah, Sircea, man-ners! XD Um, a tad worked up there, Kyle? Your fists are clenched. Are you trying to shake off the female touch of the last comic page? Sircea looks so innocent in this picture. What a deceptress. (Is that even a word? It looks pretty.) And hoo-boy, I don’t quite trust the look on Duncan’s face right now. Looks like he’s considering Sircea’s last comment. Theez eez not good…

    Panel 2 – … BAHAHAHAHA! Dramatic much? Oh, sorry, Sircea, I forgot. We’ve all been just as tense. Um, yeah, don’t come by my place and get angry, you weren’t being melodramatic… ~sweatdrop~

    Panel 3 – Oooh, smug Sircea is smug. Oh goats, was that a meme from me? It was? Blegh. Return to reactions, not meme-nonsense. Ooh, Duncan, you look impatient. Wanting to get Kyle away before your friend totally ruins the date? Good luck with that. Oh, hangy-on a momenty, I think I see something! Yep, looks like Duncan is looking at Sircea, who is looking at Kyle, who is looking at Duncan. A look-triangle!

    Panel 4 – Yay, they look like a team! Is this delightful plotty foreshadowing, or my dark side supporter side making me see things? Nice outfit overview Sircea. Love those boots especially. And the contraposto (spelling a little iffy there, better go read all my old art notes) pose is gorgeous. Whoa, whoa, whoa, two HUNDRED dollars a plate? No food is worth that. None. And I’ve been to bleeding expensive restaurants in my time, but that much is ridiculous. Noways, nuh-uh, Duncan, that’s too pricey. How much money do you HAVE, my dear fellow? Ah, see? Kyle is just as shocked as I. As me. Although that could also be a “What’s wrong with my outfit” look. Now Duncan’s tux makes sense.

    Panel 5 -  BURN! Sircea, your wit is razor sharp. This is beautiful. Just stunning. And saying “young man”. Nice, polite touch. Maybe Sircea could be related to Duncan after all. That “young man” sounded mighty British to my ears. Oh dear. Now I’m hearing Maggie Smith’s voice for her. That one’ll be hard to kick, even if I’m told Sircea’s American or something. And that pose is so regal. Then Kyle looks every bit the teen in comparison to these two. And that head scratch… He knows it’s a bad idea to agree, but he does so anyway. Silly young darling.

    Panel 6 – … TENTACLE MONSTERS! Sircea, you are full of surprises. I don’t think Duncan or I will complain though, not if you strip Kyle… At least topless… I want to know if his abs are as good as in my head… Ooh, I see Sircea’s having fun, look at that grin! And Duncan doesn’t look too surprised. Does that mean… he knew what was going to happen? He looks more fascinated. Oh my. Oh. My. ~blushes at thoughts in head~ Agh, Kyle, don’t look so shocked, you knew they were sneaky from the start. Hm… I think I’m etching Sircea’s staff emblem onto my hippie’s canvas-bag. In silver paint of course.

    Amazing as ever. I can hardly wait for Saturday. I wonder if the donation bar will tick over to 400 before then, even…

    • KiannaLeigh

      Hey it’s you and your panel-by-panel reactions again. LOL. I love it. Yay!

      • TheWarriorQueen

        Yes, it is me. Teehee. Glad it was worthwhile typing all my reactions out. I should also be here on Saturday with reactions. And then Wednesday. And then Saturday. And then Wednesday (if it keeps up all the bonus paging.). XD

  • RedWildPony

    Oh Yeah! She rocks! I can hear her in my mind, she`s amazing! 

  • Suhndog

    Wow! The artwork and dialog are top-notch! This panel alone commands one’s attention! I like the fact that both Anni and Sircea are violating Kyle’s ‘personal-space’! It adds to the overall tension. =3  Also, their expressions are spot-on! I get a real feeling of foreboding from our villains! Sircea’s expression in panel 3 is superb! Excellent! You get the impression that Kyle’s becoming less in charge of his position, and the villains are commanding [controlling?!] his ‘destiny’…  I love Sircea’s expression in the last panel! – and Anni has that look of expectant ‘satisfaction’.. ME TOO!! [cold shower time..!]  >3  Everything just works perfectly in this panel.. It’s agony for me to wait for each one!!!  Pant, pant..   

    • Suhndog

      – I just got the idea that Sircea seems to be totally enjoying the interaction between Kyle and Anni [not to mention her involvement!] – I think she’s the type who’d read Yaoi  Manga!!

  • http://twitter.com/ce_kilgore C.E. Kilgore

    Hah! Be careful what you agree too!  yay makeover!

  • http://twitter.com/Its_me_Alis Alis~~

    Dude, I’m seriously in love with Sircea. I think I’ve said it on the previous page and the one before but…. She’s amazing!

    PS: Seeing as I’ve been around mangas (coughhentaistoocough) a lot… My first thought on the last panel was… Well… I believe you all know what I thought.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002526914970 Phyllida Jacobs

    Sircea, you can’t criticise other people’s outfits when you’re not even wearing clothes. But seriously, this lady is a bamf.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HyperDreamer Russell Mitchell

    LMAO I think shes enjoying that way too much in the last panael

  • Colin bell

    Magical tentacle rape! Duncan looks happy ^_^

  • SomeoneK

    I’ve seen enough internet to know where this is going

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Would someone please help me get this stupid grin off my face:D….I think Duncan knew what was coming….and maybe later……….Dessert? I like where this is going!

  • Cyberium

    I see why Spooky had a problem with her… :D

  • Ikaru Sentinal-K’Valshar

    *laughing* Oh….wow. That….was probably not what Kyle was expecting. XD And oooh, Sircea? I love that name.

  • hapax

    Goodness gracious, what a wolfish commentariat!

    Am I the only one who was thinking, “No, no, bad touch, BAD! TOUCH!”?

    (Such a dilemma.  The art is so lovely, I want more more more.  But at this rate, I suspect poor Kyle will spontaneously combust if we keep up the twice a week schedule…)

  • http://www.facebook.com/roelene Roelene Malan

    “and now that the dark lord Cthulhu has felt you up here is you clothes” and she proceeds to hand him a suite… is most likely not how the next page is going to go but I would laugh if it did.  Is it just me of does the Priestess getting older in each panel?

    • SakuraHana

       I was thinking that too…. Panel 4 looks like she’s about to starve to death, and she did mention that already… lol!

  • SigmundReimann

    I like her a lot. Just look at that smile in panel three.

  • Taylee94

    I’ve seen enough hentai to know where this is going.

    Though maybe that’s just wishful thinking. 

  • Epistasthai

    Whoa nelly, Bonus Page!! with tentacles!! And the promise of new clothes! whoo hoo!

    haha, this is getting more interesting by the minute. Thanks, Alex!

    • http://www.facebook.com/jamiepd Jamie Dutton

       “Bonus Page!! With tentacles!!” Lol :D
      If Alex doesn’t use that as the next page title then I’ll eat my hat…if I were wearing one, I mean

      You’re very welcome! I’m really enjoying reading everyone’s reactions.

    PP just rocks! Can’t wait to see what she does with Kyle…

  • YangYueLan

    I like this lady! Does she have a significant other? if no, then I volunteer! 

    • KiannaLeigh

      Nooooo! T_T

      i want her … Sharing is caring, you know. [hint,hint]
      XD

      • YangYueLan

         Ok, we doing a shared custody thing? I’m not really up for more. What days do you want her? Or are we doing months?

        • Interpolation

          You guys realize you’d be in her custody and not the other way around right?

    oh, I LOVE this comunity! you can find the comments we all think like “tentacle rape!!! XD” from amazing descriptions of the page and the questions for the next one! you’re amazing guys, I love reading all the writings and finding the ones that I agree, and loughing to cry. I’ll NEVER forget this webpage, even when I reach my 40′s
    P.S: Sorry about the mistakes! :P

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

      Yeah, we have a really amazing community of readers here. It really makes all the hard work worth it. So much fun reading y’all’s comments. :)

  • psiquest

    Egads! These villains are truly vile… to stoop to such depravity as tickle torture!?!?!?

    Oh, and Miss P… please make it a flaming fig leaf… please make it a flaming fig leaf… please make it a flaming fig leaf… ;)

    • http://twitter.com/hinakiba777 Holly

      Kyle CANNOT go to dinner in a flaming fig leaf. But that doesn’t mean Platinum can’t make a few “wardrobe mistakes” before he finally lands in a tux or the like. ;)

  • Midwestmutt

    Poor Kyle, every super-baddie he meets ends up tossing him into the air.

    • http://twitter.com/balisane Sola Balisane

       I guess he shouldn’t wear that “Pick me up, Daddy” pout all the time.  See how much trouble it’s gotten him into. 

  • fujoshifanatic

    LOL, tentacles! Yes! I now have the biggest heart on for Sircea–a consummate snarker and a fangirl to boot (if those tentacles aren’t the work of a proper fujoshi, I don’t know WHAT is)?  I think I’m in love. ;-P So stoked to see what happens next Saturday and (apparently!) Wednesday. I hope all the positive feedback in comments and donations help Alex; as all of us here believe, it’s so very much deserved. We happily give you all the praise we can for the happiness you give us each week. :-D

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

      All the kind words really do help. Even if I’m too swamped to reply right away, they pop into my email inbox and get me grinning. :)

      I’m glad to hear this comic brings you happiness too!

  • KiannaLeigh

    Um … is it me or does that donation bar say four hundred and twenty two dollars raised.

    Anywhoo! I just love Sircea. She’s my baby! Teehee. Can we please have a Duncan and Sircea poster? I really want those two on my wall.

    [flounces off to write Sircea fanfiction b/c I'm in love with her]

    • http://twitter.com/balisane Sola Balisane

  • Interpolation

    I… did not see that coming.  Maybe I should have?  I feel like this is business as usual for Sircea.  Except that she is only asking permission as a courtesy to Duncan, what with Kyle being his date and all.

    • http://twitter.com/balisane Sola Balisane

       I am one hundred percent certain that the only reason she asked was because she’d already tweaked Duncan once in the last 30 seconds. xD

  • abby drake

    I’ve seen enough hentai to know where this is going. 

  • Ryun Hobbs

    If only I had extra money lying around for more updates. I found this a couple of weeks ago, but then couldn’t remember the name of the webcomic and had a hard time searching for it. I re-found it a few days ago and I am loving how it’s unfolded! I also just read Artifice, and that was amazing as well. Love your stories and all of the artists’ work, too! Good luck and can’t wait for the next page :)

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

      Yay! Glad to hear you found us again! Welcome back! :)

  • Erica

    omg, totally tentacle rape. i definitely wanna see the outfit he’d be in. omg lol and 200 buckos a plate?! jeezus christ lmao. Anni’s bankinnnn. With what money??

    suspicioussssssssssss!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jamiepd Jamie Dutton

    LOL!!! Oh Alex, this is almost too much, I’m laughing so hard tears are streaming down my face! 
    First question: Alex, why are there hentai tentacles in my bl/yaoi?
    2nd:  Kyle when are you going to learn to watch what you say while hanging in back alleys with supervillains trying to date you?
    3rd:  When did you realize that ‘magical cougars’ and mystical transforming tentacles= awesomeness? 
    4th: Anyone else hearing her as having more of a Lauren Bacall voice?

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

      1) Because I love you.

      2) I imagine sooner rather than later.

      3) I don’t know what it says about me that my villains are the ones who best express the AlexHumor. I’ll leave it for my awesome readers to decide.

      4) One of my favorite movies of all time is To Have and Have Not. :)

      • http://www.facebook.com/jamiepd Jamie Dutton

         We love you too, Alex :D

  • https://twitter.com/DanishWolf DanishWolf

    Reading the comments it seems that I’m basicly in the minor group here who had an ‘innocent’ mind from reading this page. Now THAT’s an unusual thing XD

    My 1st thought and basicly biggest thought on this was:
     ‘Ohh, does this mean we actually get to see the red hotness in a tux. YAY!’

    My 2nd thought:
    Do this mean we get a peek of naked Kyle? YAY for possible butt-panel :)

    My 3rd thought:
    Anni and Sircea are so sassy classy here. Why would anyone freak about gray hair? They rock it <3

    4th though:
    Kyle is kinda short. Lets hope that only counts height wise. Ahem XD

    Not once, ONCE!, did hentai and tentacles cross my mind until I started reading 90% of the comments mentioning/hinting this *LOL* All my pervy thoughts and most others topped me on this page ;)
    But now, what is seen can't be unseen. *shakes fist at commenters* daaamn!

    Now I'll sit back and wait for Kyle in a tux. I need that image right now. Thank god the next page comes soon!

  • http://www.facebook.com/singstoimaginarybeings Amber Lynn O’Connor

    Snrk. Alex, I wasn’t thinking of tentacles until you put it in my head… :P

    Also daaaaayum, two hundred dollars a plate? Good call, Kyle, whether you like Anni or not don’t pass up a dinner that nice! XD

  • kaycee1967

    Can you say DADDY/BOY? SNICKER

  • CrispyChicks

    I have been following this comic from the very first page, and it pleases me so to see that it’s really kicking off now, and gathering a fanbase. I am loving all these bonus pages.

    • http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/ Alex Woolfson

      Glad to hear it. (And thank you for your constant support! :) )

  • olivefood

    yay so many bonus pages! I looooove Sircea. looking forward to see Kyle all dressed up for the date! :)

  • Mihael Keehl

    TENTACLE RAPE xDD seriously? haha

  • DarkFeanix21

    Sircea is *awesome*, and I don’t think poor Kyle has any idea what he’s getting into, hanging out with a couple of supervillains.

  • Becky

    Watching Sircea sashay around in that physics-defying top has me questioning whether Adam understands how breasts work… hmm.  Fantastic boots, though!

    • http://www.facebook.com/jay.demetrick Jay Demetrick

      Erm… she’s a magic user.  She can defy physics all she likes.  lol!

  • Athena Velasco

    Lol I doubt the tentacle rape is going to happen. But SOMEONE is going to be getting naked way up in the air!! (He’s changing clothes!)

  • VanQuinn

    Never mind the tentacles, does anyone else think the Platinum Priestess looks adorable in panel 3? I just want to put some bunny ears on that.

    Back to Kyle. I can only imagine the kinds of rumors he must have heard about the priestess given this. I don’t see Duncan coming to save him. Our silver fox seems content watching how this plays out (and me too). Not even going to pull his hands out of his pockets.

  • Zebriane

    It would appear that The Annihilator is going to get dinner AND a show~. 

  • Lady Mania

    Priestess’ face is adorable in Panel 3, and looks to be having way to much fun in the last panel. I really do like her! She is a wonderful character.

  • http://www.facebook.com/hannah.farthing.7 Hannah Farthing

    Been creeping on this comic for a while and finally got the nerve to post. I really love this story. The idea of a bad guy and good hooking up is extremely sexy all by itself, but add in the age difference and the fact that they are both men, one of which is still a bit shy about his preferences? Its just too much to handle! The amount of plot ammunition you managed to gather into one story is wicked awesome. If college wasn’t such a money sucker I would be helping with these bonus pages. I am super happy for you getting so much support!

    As for this page? Honestly, I thought “I’m Sircea and this is Duncan and you’re watching What Not to Wear!”  And then you said tentacles. O_o Oh damn.
    LOL can’t wait to see what she puts him in and how she ahem gets him in it…

      And now I can totally hear The Annihilator with that voice . . .
