    A Nose Kiss seems so odd for someone called, “The Annihilator”! But I love this. It’s so cute.

    Kyle is adorable!! I love these two together, even if they become enemies later on! Alex you are excelling yourself again!

    And I don’t get why people have issues with these two with some sort of age difference when there was a bigger issue of different species between Deacon and Jeff… that’s just my opinion on that.

    BEST. REWARD. EVER!!!

    I read on Facebook that there was going to be an update today so I decide that I wouldn’t reading it until I finished my paper and turned it in. Hey, I take what I can get.

    Now I can’t wait until Saturday to find out how Annihilator replies.

      I’m glad you liked it, Tanya! Good luck with your paper!

  • Suhndog

    How fun!  Hmm..  that last panel has me a bit stumped..  Kyle’s expression seems a bit ambiguous.. Could he be probing Anni? That ‘look’ seems like he’s about to spring a trap..  or? Maybe it’s just me, but I think Kyle was playing Anni along..  I’m excited to see what’s next!!  I can take only so many ‘cliff-hangers’..  Oh, Nooooo  !!  ‘POP!!’  [insert bugle playing 'Taps' here...]  EEks!!  :3

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_J7W4JMZ6MXCVA6KKCFVAMW44OU Summer

    ….and we’re face down in reality again.  Dammit.  If that wasn’t good enough….well….

    (also, was home too late to camp :(  Alas)

  • Irish Hussy

    Well, this is a surprise update. The third panel is my favorite. Anni actually has a pretty soft expression there and Kyle seems more confident. The urge to smash Anni over the head with large planks of wood has subsided. I think it might mainly be because I’m pretty sure he’d be impervious to anything I could dish out.

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

    Wow, panel 4 is just breathtaking.  So beautiful.

    So… does this mean they’re engaged now?  ;)

    • Yukiness

      Du dum tis.

  • cozcoz

    as an 18 y/o I feel it is my duty to establish the fact that no 17 y/o guys dress like that these days. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=567136720 Sean Fournel Campbell

      I don’t think this is exactly ‘the modern times’ we live in. The way Kyle’s dressed and the way the environment looks gives me the feeling the setting is more like Superman-ish, wear the times aren’t modern but aren’t exactly old. I think it’s maybe a few decades ago, at best, so it’d fit with his shirt. If it is a modern comic… I defend his clothes. I like wearing polos .__.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/UCGSDZ2BLW7TKJCLW3HG4A6654 Winona

      Really? There’s quite a lot of them over here…

      • cozcoz

        Are you sure they’re 17? Because if so that realllllllly surprises me. Unless they’re actually in on fashion (like: 
        http://lookbook.nu/look/3632733-TAG-you-re-it) then I can’t imagine them choosing to where dress pants that colour, why not black? And I don’t think shops even sell shoes like that (
        http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/archive/ete-page-7/) these days. 
        I do believe you, of course! I just think more than anything it looks like he’s raided his dad’s wardrobe and hence isn’t an accurate representation of what current teens wear (assuming it’s set in this time). 

        • MiscKitty

          This thread got me looking back through the archives and it seems your wish for black pants on Kyle was granted in the first panel on page 17. xD

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

      Good eyes, cozcoz. The truth is his clothing here was a very deliberate choice on his part (and one he spent a great deal of time thinking about). Part of it was his desire to not appear 17 when he decided he would try to step into a gay bar tonight. But part of it is also a reflection of who he is and what he thinks it means to “dress up”. (And also, frankly, what clothes he has access to.)

      If, as his friend, you might be tempted to advise him to make different fashion choices, you would not be alone in doing so.

  • Erica

    Oh that was good enough. The nose kiss was way too adorkable!!! ah ha ha ha ha

    A nose kiss, that kiss on the lips with a smile and the 4th panel where I find Kyle really sexy and cute, he looks like he has enjoyed it and he even looks like he eabts some more hehe (fangigling). I’ve fallen in love with the comic, well actually I alredy was!

    Nose kissies and nervous/shy/vulnerable Kyle. I love the nose kiss Anni gives him, it is just so playful and cute, followed by another quick kiss. And I love just how Anni looks like the cat that got the cream in panel 5.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Klara-Tussan-Fredriksson/1360971063 Klara Tussan Fredriksson

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/I2QXLYFMDWWJ34V7BQTX2YL6KQ mania

    One word, Adorable. 

  • Yukiness

    Corruption complete.

    Seeing as our dear Anni not only gave his kittykat a very affectionate nose kiss, he also went back for another beso before pulling away. Blackmailers don’t neccisarily act to tenderly, understanding, nor affectionately towards their victums so I think Kyle doesn’t have too much to worry about.

    Unless of corse you count the army of us that has collected in the alleyway to watch

    • Becky

      Lol.  Voyeurism FTW!

      • Yukiness

        I’m feeling like some fan art right about now. To the drawing board!

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

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jenny-Grimshire/100002369296250 Jenny Grimshire

    Lol, I love panel 5 – the expressions are perfect.

    To be honest, I never really saw it properly as blackmail. The way I saw
    it was the Kyle came up with the idea and Annihilator went along with
    it for funsies to see what he could get out of the situation.

    • http://twitter.com/NiggsyIsABore C.A.R.

      You’re quite right, I think. Kyle practically threw himself into this blackmail situation by revealing how he doesn’t want it to be known and how much it upsets him. Talk about revealing your weaknesses. Anni probably went with it on the fly because the situation presented itself. And real blackmail involves the threat of irreparable damage to his reputation and monetary compensation to keep it from happening. A single kiss is pittance and unless this world is much more homophobic than ours I think Kyle’s fears are a little unfounded.

    • http://twitter.com/SoupyTwist SoupyTwist

       Yes, agreed. It was making me a little nuts when the comments section was all “Eeeeville Blackmailer!” and I was going, “But it was Kyle’s idea!” That’s kinda the MO of a villain anyway. They just do what seems fun and in their personal best interest.

  • nayia

    Ha, ha, he like it :3

    Annihilator will say “NO”, ’cause he’s evil man :3

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Alyssa-Holzmann/100001277566383 Alyssa Holzmann

    “It was good enough to earn you a ticket to ROUND TWO.” Is what I want him to say. ;p

  • http://www.facebook.com/ariane.henry.1 Ariane Henry

    Anni is literally shining from pride in this 5th panel, that’s amazing XD

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Alyssa-Holzmann/100001277566383 Alyssa Holzmann

    Also the add right under the comic says “DON’T MISS THE NEXT PAGE!  SUBSCRIBE TO ARTFICE VIS RSS, EMAIL, FACEBOOK,  OR TWITTER. Isn’t Artifice over? Is there more? Please god let there be more.

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

      Hmm. Missed that. Thanks for pointing that out! Fixed! :D

  • Becky

    Oh, sure, A, push Kyle riiiiiiight up to his first little moan, and then OKAY KISS OVER THE END.  I’d say Mr. Jr. Heropants is successfully baited and hooked.  Well played.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=591482984 Deejay Mumin

    Kyle: Was that good enough?
    Anni: What do you think?
    Kyle: I’ll do better next time *pounces*
    Anni: Oooof!

  • Gael Mackie

    First time commenting
    on these comics, even though I’ve been hooked since pretty much the
    beginning of Artifice! 

    At any rate the first thing I want to say is that I adore this comic so far: the artwork, the characterisations, the scenario … just everything about it. As for Annihilator’s blackmailing and roughness it just fits so well from what we know of him thus far – very self-assured, risk-taking and above all a compelling Supervillain! Kyle is absoultely adorable, and I like the whole awkward, in-the-closet-virgin thing he has going on. I can’t wait to find out more about him and his team!

    But for all the rambling I could go on to do, nothing will sum up my love for this series more than what happened to me this morning: literally just as i finished reading this newest page my shockwave plug-in on my netbook crashed. I can only assume it was due to the sheer awesomeness of this comic – because of this I wasn’t even miffed that I had to wait even longer to watch a Linkara review :)

    Keep up the good work, Alex! I look forward to seeing where this juicy piece of webcomic will lead!

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

      Thank you, Gael! I’m so glad to hear you’ve been enjoying my work and I really appreciate you taking the time to comment to let me know! (Also glad to hear your enjoying the characterization of these guys—you’ll get to see a bit more of them before the comic is over. ;) )

      And strange that your Shockwave plugin would crash—I don’t think I have anything going on here that would interfere with that—but I’m glad you still found the page worth it! :D

      • Gael Mackie

        It actually happens a lot at random intervals throughout the day, I just loved the timing of it and have decided to make it a kind of tag-line to convince my friends to read as well: Young Protectors is so awesome that shockwave crashed due to an awesomeness-overload :)

  • grinsekatze

    Annie seems to be satisfied with himself^^

  • KiannaLeigh

    OMG. I was just just all “What’s this I see? i YP page on a Wednesday? JOY.” Today I had to take the day off work to make an emergency appoint with my doctor. But thanks to this bonus pages, my day doesn’t suck like it did five minutes prior.

    And oh. Kyle seems so freaked out in panel two. It like he’s surprised Annie can be sweet.

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

    I wasn’t sure what to make of this webcomic… older guys aren’t my thing usually and I’m not use to the style of art (I enjoy it though, don’t get me wrong. Just not use to seeing it), but this has grown on me! I might be a new reader, but this comic now officially has me hooked!

    0_0 Oh my. Ahem, well, I thiiiiink that was good enough, but I would need to see that again…you know…just to make sure. :-P Seriously, this made my day on a yucky rainy morning to wake up to this. I love panels one through four–especially panel two, which I have a feeling will be the general nature of their relationship from here on out–they made my inner fangirl squee quite happily. Now I only have to wait a few more days to see what happens next.

    Thanks Alex! *runs off happily to work*

  • Flo_over

    You have a wonderful way of taking what could be simply a smutty mcsmutterpants situation and turn it into something a little bit heart warming and tender.  It shows your characters have been well thought out, well rounded, and at least vaguely honest with themselves.

    MEGA PROPS!

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

  • Vaan_Lohengrin

    was good enough for me 

    • Superjenny

      Not me.  I think that requires a mulligan.  Do the whole thing over again, I say!

  • krissdevalnor

    “awwwwww” perfect ending of a perfect kiss^^ cant wait to see what happens

  • CookieMonsterer

    In panel five I think “Damn he is tall” And cant help but notice the giant bulge in his suit. That might just be me, but still. Love this comic already. Was kind of Ehh about it in the beginning, but now I am getting into it. Its goood.

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

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Levi-Lowrey/1660492637 Levi Lowrey

    Either he is tall or Kyle is short. Kyle looks like he is afraid that his nose will get bitten off in panel 2

  • HermeticallySealed

    I think Kyle liked it more than he wanted to. lol

    • Becky

      Most definitely.

  • Kit the Coyote

    That look on his face in the last panel is just begging for the answer to be no.

  • Gaz Hawkins

    and he has his legs crossed because he is trying to hide the raging boner he has after that kiss (and the grope we did not see)

    Well! That would prove it to ME! I think Kyle reeeeaaaally liked it, a lot! Maybe even enough to ask for another kiss or a date. Bu-ut… I think Anni had a benign ulterior motive. He was helping Kyle find, capture, and hang on to his self-confidence. An older guy being wily in boosting a closet-case’s morale.

    Or else he was lulling Kyle into false security in order to do something dastardly…

    Ah well, I can only wait and read on. Thanks for the awesome entertainment!

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

    Okay: I am grinning, big time. Annihilator, you’ve won me over at last. The second and third panels are just too damn cute to sense any malice or villainy coming from him any more, at least not directed towards Kyle :P and I like how he stands apart from him looking very, very pleased with himself. Which he should be, considering he just snogged the hell out of that boy.

    OH WOW!!!! Now THAT was a cute page!!! It’s like neither of them wanted it to stop! :3 this is just too cute. Heheh Kyle is so adorable! “Um…please say it wasn’t good enough so we can do it again :3″ hehehehe!! LOVE it!! I love Anni! <3 the way he teases with neck kisses and then a nose kiss…but then give Kyle one more kiss just to make up for it. I think they were both kinda sad it ended. WANTS MORE!!! Can't wait until Saterday! :3

    Panel 5 voice-over: “Kyle is hypnotised as the Silver Bulge (TM) absorbs the final traces of his intellect. Soon he will be naught but ginger putty in Silver Fox’s eager hands…”

    … couldn’t resist ;)

    • Lillexe

      Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice :D

    • Monica

       YES! that bulge… :3 He must have a small soccer ball under there XD

  • Ambler

    I dunno if I could make out with a guy who had such a surgically shaved beard. He looks like a robot. And who would want to snog/have sex with a robot? I mean, it’s not like there’s ever been a comic that I can think of where a strapping young lad of a human falls in love with something like, I dunno, an android soldier who’s named Deacon and has the pectorals of a Grecian warrior.
    HA OH WAIT.

      Your comment MADE MY LIFE I SWEAR. X’D

    • Monica

       It’s not a shaved head, it’s back slick! :D

    • Becky

      Yay, Grecian warriors!

      Did I say “yay”?  I meant “yum”.  :P

    Is anyone else getting a blank page for ~5 seconds until it pops up, even after the page has loaded? This is happening to me when it’s loaded already and I come back from being in another tab. That combined with the load time is making trying to read the archives a little frustrating. :(

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_P5XCWEF6AMODXJ3CA32SLGBREM Morganna

    Ack! The nose kiss is what got me! Followed by his face in that last panel…..Nnnngh…..why do you people excel at cute things that give me feels? <3

  • Monica

    Ohh Annihilator…  You can kidnap me anytime…
    OK you got me hooked on this now Alex! Darn you! GIMME MORE!!

  • Avengelyne

    Aaaaaand right back to shy and sweet. Gods Kyle is so adorable I want one.

  • mikakitten

    I have to admit…I think this is the cutest page…Ever…

    OH MY GOD KYLE MY PRECIOUS BABY! LET ME HOLD YOU! today we take a break from cerebral analysis of the content and give way to a fountain of squee.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001758095504 Sarah Dompkowski

    Donated $11. A combination of OCD at seeing $49 in the counter and my desire for more of these interesting characters made me do it.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/MLXG7BTHPOTJJCCNYE4BDAADQA Samantha

    I love Kyle’s “Please don’t eat my face” expression in panel two. Damn, I almost can’t wait for Saturday (but I have to).

    Tee-hee, nose kisses are sweet! :D

  • ErykaSoleil

    -Tsk.- I take off from the internet for a few days to help my husband get the house set up how we want it, and you sneak a bonus page in? That’s pretty awesome, actually. :)

    So is the next update going to be the front page of the local tabloid, showing an 8″x10″ color glossy photograph of our red-headed hero being a floozy? XD

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000986742779 Daniel Cox

    I dunnow if that was good enough kyle.

    Based on where your eyes are pointing, it seems that was good, but sure as hell not enough.

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

      You.  I enjoy you.  

  • Bealtaine

    Oh Kyle …I keep thinking you’ve hit your cute quotient but you just keep getting more adorable!

  • Taylee94

    I just love how smug the Annihilator looks xD And how fast it seems that Kyle moved away when he finally came to xD

    Love the comic :D  

  • Bianca Simone

    Awww, Kyle is still an awkward teenager!  I think Annihilator is just trying to help him come out (HA!) of his shell.

  • http://dreamslongforgotten.wordpress.com/ Jessi Rotzi

    Maybe it’s just me, but I kinda realized who Annihilator reminds me of. Macbeth from the Gargoyles TV show. A more trimmed up Macbeth.

    And now Macbeth’s voice is the one I hear for Anni. Never mind the only dialogue on here was from Kyle…

    • http://kittymayhem.livejournal.com/ KittyMayhem

      I totally have that in my head now. XD

      • http://dreamslongforgotten.wordpress.com/ Jessi Rotzi

        Mwahaha! My plan! It is WORKING.

        I mean. *cough* Yays! I’m not the only one.

        <.< Yup. That was allllllll I wrote. Yup. Ignore that top line. ;p

    • VanQuinn

       I always thought he was the hottest character…

      • http://dreamslongforgotten.wordpress.com/ Jessi Rotzi

        Because he is!

  • Vinctia Valentine

    Why is the fourth panel making me all “ASDFGHKJL”… megusta

    • YangYueLan

       I am totally with you on the fourth panel. So cute! ^.^

  • streetwalkersan

    I’m absolutely in love with that third panel and, more specifically, Kyle’s little smile there! <3 Smiling while kissing makes for an absolutely tinglingly romantic and beautiful picture…

  • YangYueLan

    There is some serous height difference in panel 5. Was this height difference there the whole time? *goes back to look* Edit: Yes, its there, we just haven’t gotten to see them standing next to each other with out being in a crouched fighting position.

  • Thanatopia

    Well, I’d say that’s quite the kiss. :)

    But due to the pleasure/pain causality theory of literature, something will explode soon.  What, exactly, remains to be seen. *cue the ominous thunder*

  • Roseland

    I hope there’ll be a new page soon! I want to know Anni’s answer :) :)

  • Lillexe

    Weeeeeeeeeeell look at that smug smile in panel 5. :D

    Camping.

    Where did the morality arguments go OAO.

    • Laurenihilation

      Probably under Kyle’s tongue and into Anni’s pants. :D

      • ManicThrifts

        This comment made my day.

        • Laurenihilation

          I’m glad! XD

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/2B4DKIB2GBQAB3A6UNWWC43NOI Zee

    Does… he look a little “smug” to you?
    That’s definitely some smugness going on.
    Oh, you dodgy boy.

    • http://www.facebook.com/simone.cotterill.7 Simone Cotterill

      which one :?

    • Ikaru Sentinal-K’Valshar

      I see the smug too. The second to last panel just screams it. It really does. And Kyle looks so bashful and eager to please. Adorable. XD

  • http://www.facebook.com/simone.cotterill.7 Simone Cotterill

    awww panel 4 soo cute

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Noely-Tovar-JaeJoong/1239622566 Noely Tovar JaeJoong

    I just love how you can tell the story just by expressions, I mean, there’s so much going on here on this page I feel like looking at it over and over again XD

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XZUKYF2XYF5NNYZBVWSPJN53CU Layla

    For fans it was plenty enough!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Deathica Carol Welsh

    Panel three is my favorite. That little mischievous grin on his face is just great.

  • SolrSurfr3

    XD Oh, as if you didn’t love it, Kyle!

  • DarkFeanix21

    That’ll do, Kyle. That’ll do.

    (For now)

      • Axis Rhys

        • devil_woman_24

          Thanks xD is a cropped version a fanart made by hamlet

  • Madock345

    Reading through old comics, this was an awesome sequence, but there’s no excuse for a lack of boner on Kyle in panel 6.

  • devil_woman_24

    Panel 4 is the best!

    • Red Dahl

      the first for panels are sexy but I have to agree with you there

      • devil_woman_24

        I do love all the panels but the 4th is my favorite :3

        • Red Dahl

          I agree with you there! Everytime I see it I fan girl out and wish that was me in kyle’s place!
