    “If you don’t come back, I’m going to cross over and make you do what I want”

    • Madock345

      I honestly wonder if he could now. Seems within the demonic purview

      • davefragments

        So do I

      • Derkins

        I had the same though last page. Who knows what Kyle can do at this point!

  • Librarican

    Is this like a spirit defibrillator? Clear!

    • Pietro7

      Now there’s a scary thought. 🙂

  • Pietro7

    Stray thought. Does Kyle cry tears of flame now? Sorta looks like it.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Possibly? At least as far as the first two panels are concerned, I interpretted Red’s flaming eyes as being a manifestation of some sort of spirit-sight as he literally looks within Spooky and sees the ‘hole’.

      • But that was his whole eyes flaming. The last panel you can see his blue with the flame coming out the edge. Would have been interesting if it acted like liquid…

        • fujoshifanatic

          Like lava tears? No, too viscous. Maybe like some sort of petrol? I’m trying to visualize liquid fire, and these are not right.

          • Pietro7

            I didn’t mean liquid fire, I meant flames appearing from his eyes instead of tears. At least, that’s how I interpreted Panel 6. I could be wrong though, it’s ambiguous.

          • fujoshifanatic

            In that context, if you eliminate the requirement for them to be liquid, they possibly could be the equivalent of tears, since Kyle produces them in moments of emotional intensity (remember his orgasm with Duncan?), like a regular human would produce tears. Speaking of which, what the hell happened to Duncan? Did he in fact get dragged away to Hell with all the other demons because of his deal? It seems unlikely that he would be off to the side somewhere when all of this flaming mayhem was going down. Oh Anni, where are you???!!!

          • Derkins

            I imagine ‘liquid’ fire tears would look something like when a candle has a wick that’s too long and the flame gets out of control, and the wax catches fire as it drips. You’ve guys have seen that before, right?

        • Saxon_Brenton

          As I said, that was my interpretation for panels 1 & 2. I’m unsure about panel 6 – As you say, the way its presented in the art is slightly different. That said, at this stage, within the first hour after posting, we’re still working with draft colours. The effect might be different in the final version.

        • Derkins

          I imagine something that looks like when a candle has a wick that’s too long and the flame gets out of control, and the wax catches fire as it drips. You’ve guys have seen that before, right?

    • Klaus
  • Madock345

    Is this when we all clap our hands and say we believe in magic? Because I’m ready if you guys are.

    • Juliette Leroux

      Clap!

  • Brian Hopkins

    Kyle’s so calm, so “we’re not like you,” much more powerful—definitely “other.”

    Also, nice that the shirtless hostages are hunky.

    • Madock345

      Bro.

      Can we not perv on the corpses please XD

      • Brian Hopkins

        Aww, you must not have played “find the most homoerotic Saint Sebastian painting” in the Renaissance art sections of museums.

      • Cipher

        Shhh they’re just mostly dead.

        • Mostly Dead means Slightly Alive.

          • Cipher

            Now, all dead, well, with all dead, there’s usually only one thing that you can do.

          • Go through their clothes and look for loose change?

  • Ulysses Paxton

    “If I can give him some of my power, maybe I can help him … bring him back.”

    Kyle, if you are wanting to transfer power to Spooky, remember what the song says, “It’s in his kiss, that’s where it is. It’s in his kiss, that’s where it is.”

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Okay then. So, no kissing as many readers wanted, but instead a deep and meaningful touching of foreheads as Red tries to transfer power. Still a form of touching, still the basis for subtext.

    • timemonkey

      I don’t understand people wanting a kiss here, if Kyle and Spooky are going to kiss don’t they want it to actually mean something and be reciprocated?

      • Ulises Marrero-Llerena

        Nah. Just an image etched into their minds that they can later plaster their imaginations onto…

  • Kyle now cries fire.

  • fujoshifanatic

    *Sidles up to Kyle, tapping him gently on the shoulder* Um, it might work better if you, ya know, kiss him with those hot lips of yours, Fire Boy *scampers off, rubbing hands together in the hopes of what happens next*

    • timemonkey

      Kissing people without their permission is bad.

      • fujoshifanatic

        Call it mouth-to-mouth life force resuscitation then. It’s all medical and stuff–consent is implied in that the victim presumably does not want to stay “dead?” I think an apology for the violation will be heartily accepted after the fact in this case–knowing Spooky, he’d probably be disappointed he wasn’t all there to experience it. But your point is entirely valid and relevant under normal circumstances.

        • timemonkey

          Yeah, if they have a legit reason to think I kiss would actually help then that’s fine but just kissing for no reason not so much.

      • Madock345

        I’ll let the EMTs and Lifeguards know, thanks for bringing this issue to our attention.

        • timemonkey

          Mouth to mouth is not a kiss, so not sure what your point is here.

      • camelotcrusade

        What about filling his hole space with demonic energy? Too far?

  • Sapfo

    Oh please let this work!

  • timemonkey

    HA! For a minute there I thought Kyle had regained his horns by using his demon powers but it was just Spooky’s hair. XD

  • Jeldenil

    Come on, demon CPR

  • Jac

    Yeah Spooks, stop playin’ soul hookey! You’re scaring the Commander, ya delinquent!

  • Klaus

    This must mean that the buffer Alex & co buildt up has been exhausted.

  • Klaus

    “The rest of you.” “You” not “us”. So there are limits to how human he considers himself to be.

    • Pietro7

      Or he’s clear that he and Spooky share something that the rest of the YP do not.

  • Rin

    COME ON KYLE, YOU CAN SAVE HIM

    I FUCKING KNOW IT IN MY LIVER, ‘CAUSE THAT’S BIGGER THAN MY GODDAMN HEART AT THIS POINT COME THE FUCK ON

  • Let’s hope it’s Spooky that come back then.

    Have I been (sorta?) right here? With what I’ve been hinting at several times. For a while I’ve had the theory/suspicion that Spooky wasn’t entirely alone in his body. That his demonic sided magic wasn’t exactly his alone, and that he might not have come back from hell ‘alone’.

    Am I not that off with this theory? A space for demon energy may suggest so. Next page or two will tell.

    • Madock345

      Your ideas are intriguing to me, and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter

      • stickfigurefairytales

        A+ use of a Simpsons quote.

    • Nate

      If I remember those text stories correctly, he didn’t. The good news is, his passenger was a friend.

      • Yeah. Did he come back with Anaado as a (permanent?) part of him, or something else? Been wondering for a while.

        • Nate

          THAT’s the name. Thanks, DW.

          • Pietro7

            I have a sneaking suspicion that we’re about to find out on Friday night.

    • Adam Black

      Well he has those vanquished Demons inside him.

      We sort of learn this In the flashback.

  • TwilightDreamer

    Come on Spooky…please… :'(

  • Stephen Hutchison

    Kyle’s power boost didn’t come with a skill tree. That’s probably for the best.

    • Madock345

      Now I really want a grrlpower crossover. I don’t know how that would make any sense.

  • Lyleen

    Kiss him!

  • Juliette Leroux

    I can’t wait to hear from Spooky again. I’ve been missing his voice a lot, the way he would have seen all what happened. He’s by far the wisest of them all, or at least he was before Kyle’s sudden growth. Wake up man, wake up, we are waiting for you.

  • Mary Klemzak

    Cmon, Spooks. We need you!

  • Kate G

    “Spooky, do you hear me? This is your mother calling. She needs you to see to the yard….” FINE, FINE, FINE, panel two and three were just calling for something really funny and I had to do iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. I’m one of those people who need some laughs in between all of the seriousness in comments.

    Anyway, my auntie comes on Friday so I may not be here because I haven’t seen her in a WHOLE YEAR! She’s even sleeping over! I’m so excited even though the reason she is coming isn’t very exciting, but I’m happy she’s coming! I feel like running around and making cupcakes but they’d be bad by Friday. Maybe a pie?

    • Pietro7

      Pie is always good. 🙂

  • Klaus

    Kyle has some sort of supernatural perception. Not just superhuman like Mitch, supernatural.

  • xLizardx

    So Kyle thinks that Spooky has [and I apologise, I cannot phrase this non-euphemistically] a similar demonic hole… 🙂 Joking aside, does this mean that Spooky is also half demon?

    • bronakopdin

      I wonder but maybe it has to do with how or why he went to hell before or maybe even because he has been there!

  • Toli Bera

    Okay, who remembered to bring the phoenix down?

  • Pikinanou

    C’mon Spooks!

  • bronakopdin

    I really do hope this works ;_____;

    • Earl Patterson

      DONT WORRY! Everything will go well. Artist always twist story and all good guys always win!

      • bronakopdin

        I’ve witnessed otherwise before though ;_____;

  • Tristan Black Wolf

    Passion — the great paradox. Nothing fills you like the deeply loving expression of passion, yet nothing empties you like the sense that your passion is unfulfilled, unrequited, undesired. It could be love of another, or your artistry, or your great benevolence, or a myriad other things. It must be set free, yet it must also be returned, or the emptiness festers and turns the passion dark, chill, and destructive, whether within or without. You no longer fear your passion, Kyle; you have embraced it, as your father could not. You are far, far stronger for it. Live and love well. Be proud of your passion.

    • bandanajack

      that is a very classy and poetic speech.

      • Pietro7

        Seconded. Good work, Tristan.

  • Dennis Grace

    Apropos of nothing, the dyslexic demon editor in my brain read that last speech bubble as “We need you to host the savages.”

  • Zephyr10101

    Come on spooky!

  • Curt Clark

    It might require something a little more intimate than that, Kyle.

    Finish this song line: “I’ve been dreaming of a t…”

    • Jake Breaux

      I was thinking more of an adaptation of “Kiss the Girl”, but this works too. LOL

    • Fyora

      I finish that line with “white Christmas” so I don’t think that works well. XD

  • Earl Patterson

    Notice that all hostage are male

    • Samurai Jack

      They weren’t all male earlier. I think at least one woman is obscured by a speech balloon this time. But there were definitely women in the cage before the sacrifice took place.

      • Skudplastr

        A lot of things have been concealed by speech balloons in this comic.

    • HermeticallySealed

      Two women at the top and one at Kyle’s feet, I believe.

  • Jason Moon

    Based on the hostage selection, Kyle’s dad seems to similar issues to what Kyle has. He just seems to resolve them differently.

  • Richard Grant Muir

    Loving Kyle’s newfound confidence, but please don’t tell me he’s going to solve every problem himself now. Unless we’re changing the name of the comic to “Kyle and the Young Protectors” 😛

    • Daveo

      Patience Rich 😉

      • Richard Grant Muir

        Patience is a virtue I am possessed of in spades.

        • Daveo

          good lad … apparently we STILL need it … until tomorrow anyway 😉

    • Larkle

      I see your concern, but I don’t think we need to be too concerned about Kyle god-modding everything. This is a demonic ritual which Kyle is uniquely equipped to handle disabling, since he was a part of it. Just as he had the power within him to bring it about, (albeit unknowingly) he had the power to stop it, and send his father back. Likewise, the nature of the sacrifice tied in to his own demonic nature as well. So, it makes sense that he’d inherently have some power over it. I feel like it functions as more of Kyle no longer being afraid of his power, and therefore understanding how not to hurt people with it and how to shape it into a protective force instead. But, there’d still be plenty of things he’s out of his depth in, just this was a scenario uniquely tailored to him. That’s my take on it anyway.

      • Richard Grant Muir

        And he was uniquely equipped to stop his dad,.. And he was uniquely equipped to cut through diamond… and uniquely equipped to… 😉

        • Larkle

          Eh, fire has always had the potential to melt through diamond. That one isn’t situation specific, and probably not unique either. I’m sure there are other supers in this world who can get through diamond.

          • Richard Grant Muir

            Well, I am clearly being facetious. But he IS vastly outshining the rest of the team. Spooky gets ‘honorable mention” if he successfully saves the hostages. It happens, though. It IS Kyle’s story, after all.

          • Larkle

            Sure, sure. This is kind of Kyle’s big moment. I think having been part of the cause of the problem is primarily what evens out his incredible strength in resolving it. Because the thing is, if Kyle hadn’t played the primary hero role in fixing the problem, it would always be that he had caused the problem, that his team had had to bail him out, that he had been afraid of himself and his power and that his weakness had almost doomed the earth. I think anything less than Kyle truly accepting himself and that acceptance allowing him to right the problem wouldn’t have been as functional a resolution. Since it had been his lack of acceptance of himself that had made him vulnerable to his power being misused by Duncan. It’s sort of a balancing of the scales, big fuck up balanced by big triumph.

          • Richard Grant Muir

            Well, yes, that’s how protagonist’s work, lol. But Harry potter would’ve only been ten pages long if it weren’t for Hermoine. Ten bucks says Kyle comes up with a new codename after this! No more “Red Hot”… it’s gonna be something like “Hellspawn” to really own it, or “Heartfire” if he’s feeling emotional. =D

          • Larkle

            Oh, Harry would most definitely have died without Hermione. It’s a different thematic premise though, self-acceptance was never a big theme in HP universe, while it’s a pretty prevailing theme in YP.

            If Kyle does rechristen his code name, those would be pretty cool alternatives. 🙂

          • Adam Black

            OK I totally agree

            That’s also why I want Kyle save of Spooky to be erotically charged as well as mystical.

            It’s the inverse of the Duncan situation. We know Kyle loves him, Kyle can allow him to feel intimate with him, and it allows him to use that part of his power to heal.

            Plus everything you said.
            How can he accept this part of himself until It serves good?

            It’s probably every man’s fantasy that his orgasm , saves. ( And Human hets males have the consolation of creating life ) But after burning his sister and nearly destroying the world , Kyle needs this.

        • Wayne Lunkwitz

          No …….must not give in to the dark side……must resist……!

      • Adam Black

        That’s an interesting take ( making it about Kyle’s power ).

        But I think a simpler ( and sexy ) explanation is that it’s about Spookys nature and power. And how that complements Kyle’s.

        Spooky is a mystical bottom for demonic energy , Essences and demons. He’s a giant wellspring, a mystical vagina if you will, for demonic magic.

        And all those souls are draining the well, like neighbors stealing your wifi. When wells get too low they need to ‘prime pumped.’

        Kyle is a Demon, and Top for demonic mystical energy. ( Although here Kyle admits hes a bit versatile ) .

        We even know Kyle has fire orgasm s.
        And spooky even absorbs some of Kyle’s energy when they sleep.

        Look it’s a Yaoi comic. I really want Kyle to get off, and save everyone with a mystical fire orgasm. I’m hoping it’s more than a kiss.

        A kiss with Benefits. One with maximum skin contact.

        Or something like this

        http://oglaf.com/zoorp/2/

        ( Plus Kyle topping Spooky was foreshadowed in the in Universe Yaoi comic!! )

  • bandanajack

    i think we all need to clap as loud as we can because that will bring spooky back. c’mon now, everybody clap spooky back to life !

    • I do believe in Spooky, I do, I do!

    • I’ve been clapping since last page. No wonder my arms are sore 😉

  • Daveo

    I’ve read the WHOLE series from the beginning. Spooky is infatuated with Kyle correct? In love with? Kyle – he isn’t aware of this as far as I understand.

    • Richard Grant Muir

      I never got that impression, myself. The only person who’s seemed interested in Kyle was Duncan.

      • Daveo

        THAT pairing I STILL like ;!! )

    • NoiseShaper

      Kyle had been joking with Spooky that he was just showing off “for the girls” when they rescued people from the burning building and Spooky pretty much confirmed that then.

      And from all interactions so far it seems quite clear that Spooky loves Kyle pretty much like a close brother but isn’t in love with him, regardless of Kyle’s feelings in the opposite direction, apparently…

      • Daveo

        Tangled situation then 🙁

    • Klaus

      According to the cards from the kickstarter, Spooky would be willing to have sex with Kyle if he thought that would be good for Kyle. It is a start.

      • Daveo

        Yeah, but what about Spooky 😉

  • MaxLeopold

    Kyle has to kiss Spooky for “red hot” Energy Transfer – simple!

    Spooky gets conscious
    – perhaps starts vampire sucking Energy –
    so the Team has to separate them.

    Then can release the Souls into their own Bodies.

    Blacks out – Team returns back to Base…

  • KatKaleen

    That’s what I love about this comment-section. Here I read thoughtful, funny comments.

  • Jim Philbrick

    I’ve always thought ‘forehead to forehead” energy transfers work best in these situations….HA

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Almost like a Vulcan mind meld…..but at least now we know there is a chance!

  • Jet Allen

    I feel like Spooky needs to reveal he was trolling everyone the whole time.

    “C’mon, Spooks, stop messing around-”

    “no. lol”

    “…What the fuck?! Look, you little-”

    “hahaha bitch im a balloon wheeeee” *floats away into the sky*

    “…God damn it.”

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      But why do I hear …..in my mind……Spooky speaking in a high pitched cartoonish voice when he says this?…….Too much helium???

      • Pietro7

        Toons just talk that way. 🙂

  • Richard Grant Muir

    Well, if you want to go THAT far, I shipped them, too. Oddly enough, they’re both 20 years apart from me. But Duncan is far more my type (plus, I have ear hair older than Kyle).

  • Shadizar Silvermask

    There we go, he’s exercising the life-giving nature of fire giving energy to his friend in order to restore him.

  • karmakat

    why not try a “SNOW WHITE, CINDERELLA…”…KISS! lol

    • I think I would prefer a Buttercup kiss. ^_^

      • Pietro7

        Might set a new record for perfect kisses. Wesley will have to practice some more. 🙂

  • Hans Niemand

    Okay, but if Kyle is operating on this level he’s probably too strong for the team. That “letting go” could be a good story arc. He was the character that started this, but the group is too good and interesting a set of people to be stuck playing backup band. Manipulation of “demon energy” can become the writing option to get out of anything.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      That’s a good point, but I doubt it would work out that way. Arguably Spooky is also too powerful for the Young Protectors team, and from the patreon text stories we know that he’s had offers of membership from the fully sanctioned adult teams but turned those down to stick with the YP. I imagine that Red Hot would do the same. (There’s also the small matter that one of the reasons Red kept getting knocked back from the sanctioned trainee groups was the psyche reports on his hangups from burning his foster sister. That might make it hard for him to move on to another team.)

      However, your idea about a letting go storyline might have an interesting twist. If Red Hot stayed with the Young Protectors as a mentor, it might take a while for him to properly grasp a position in the team where he has to stand back and let the up-and-coming youngsters (both the ones they currently have, like Flyboy, and any newbies they get in the future) get to do things and thereby learn, without people as powerful as Red stepping in to take care of ‘dangerous problems’ and smother them.

  • Since I was woken up, I felt like checking on Starfighter before going back to bed, and luckily enough..

    Starfighter Comic has updated 🙂

    For your camping entertainment: hellsnake fanfic

    Shane And The Hellsnakes – 22nd Bite
    (A Young Protectors occult sitcom fanfic. Inspired by the stories of AMW comics.)

    New story arc. (Actually, probably last story arc before Young Protectors ends)

    PAGE 1 – Morning Routine
    (1.1) Medium shot of Shane’s living room, with morning light streaming through windows. Shane wanders in, drinking his morning coffee, dressed in his t-shirt and shorts sleepwear. This can be a beefcake shot if you wish. Two of the hellsnakes are already there. Louie is seated at the computer, typing. Huey is reading some paperwork.
    Shane: “Morning, everyone.”
    Louie: “Good morning.”
    Huey: “Hisss.”
    (1.2) Medium short of living room.
    Shane: “So what’s everyone got planned for today?”
    Louie: “Well, you’ve got work. I’ve got an article to finish writing because it’s almost Oh-my-god-we’re-gonna-die-o’clock late. Dewey headed off somewhere and said he’d be back later…”
    (1.3) Medium shot of living room.
    Shane (sipping coffee and looking amused): “Did he say where he was going?”
    Louie (looking thoughtful): “Uhmm… Something about a business meeting.”
    Louie: “What are you grinning about?”
    (1.4) Medium shot of living room.
    Shane: “I was about to say something about the way you guys go off on your own affairs, it’s like herding cats. But you lot are a lot more responsible and way less self-centred than cats.”
    Huey (giving Shane a pointed ‘you’d better believe it’ glare): “Hisss.”

    PAGE 2 – Morning Routine, continued
    (2.1) Medium short of living room, with Shane, Louie and Huey.
    Shane (to Huey): “And what about you, snugglebunny?”
    Huey (holding up sheet of paper with tail): “Hisss.”
    Shane: “Cheesecake, huh?”
    (2.2) Medium shot focusing on Shane and Huey. Shane frowns as he reads the recipe on the paper.
    Shane: “Hold up… WHAT type of cheesecake!?”
    Huey (matter of factly): “Hisss.”
    (2.3) Medium shot focusing on Shane and Dewey.
    Shane (giving Huey a hard look): “Are you expecting trouble?”
    Huey (shrugging but shaking head): “Hisss.
    (2.4) Medium short of living room, with Shane, Louie and Huey.
    Shane: “Huh. Well, I suppose it’s a sensible precaution, anyway. And if worse comes to worst, you can always try out that custardbending trick you got ahold of.”

    Hello Campers.
    It’s “Page 54, Where are you?”
    and how is your evening?

    • Pietro7

      Reasonably well. Put the kid to bed after four stories, made mint hot cocoa, listening to the rain outside and waiting for the page to update. Hoping Spooks is home today, that dreadful emptiness in his face is scaring me. Cocoa, anyone?

      • davefragments

        I could use some cocoa.
        Thanks

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Ooh, I’d love some cocoa, thank you!

        • Pietro7

          Help yourself, pot’s on the edge of our campfire. 🙂

    • stickfigurefairytales

      My evening’s going pretty well. I’m fighting a bit of a cold, but I’m watching the current Sports Game and enjoying that. How are you?

      • Doki had a stomach bug earlier in the week. -_-

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Oh no, poor Doki! Are you feeling better now?

          • I was, but now I think this round might be stress induced.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Oh no! D: *hugs*

          • Yeah, I had stress induced nausea at the tail end of the bug when grandmother had a night were she had more difficulties breathing.

            Poor Doki. *hugs again* I wish I could send you more help and support to take some of the load off you.

          • *sigh* If certain things aren’t cleared legally before she passes, my uncle is going to be horrific. He will probably still be horrific anyway, but I would feel safer with the law on our side.

          • davefragments

            As someone who went through those legal matters — get a power of attorney done as soon as you can. You only need it when things get bad and you may never have to use it. However, that might be too late.
            I also would say make sure that you (or someone who understands what to do) has a will. I had to get an attorney to a rehabilitation center for my Mom and that could get touchy. It’s miserable business but that’s what is needed.

          • Mother has Power of Attorney, but my uncle is…not a good person…

          • davefragments

            As hard as this sounds and as terrible as it sounds, the Power of attorney has to be prepared for a couple things … first is understanding that when the time comes for rehab centers, nursing homes and long term care facilities, the financial and medical decisions have to be made. Second is securing the money for (forgive me for being truthful and possibly hurtful) a funeral and burial. Third is protecting the estate even if that means spending to all on the care of your Mom. I had to sell my Mom’s house. My brother and one of his daughters emptied it. He and I knew where my Mom’s jewelry was and how it was to be distributed.
            These things are nothing but hard. Harder to plan as much as hard to do.
            It was my last act of Love to my Mother and I made sure it was done properly.

            Oh dear…

    • My grandmother had to bump up her drs appointment, turns out she has another UTI and depending what the culture says, she might have to switch antibiotics in a few days. Monday we are going to her lung dr and there is going to be concerns brought up (grandmother has been having more trouble breathing lately, though her reg dr did get after her for not taking the meds like she is supposed be doing, maybe getting the talk from the dr will get her to actually take her meds like she is supposed to….-_- taking care of an ornery old lady is rough)

      • stickfigurefairytales

        That definitely sounds rough, Doki. Have some cuddles.

      • davefragments

        My Mother had the same sort of problem with UTIs.

  • Nofsky8

    I am camping while camping, outside, in a tent, and we were setting up tents in the rain so my sleeping bag got wet, but no worries everyone gave me blankets so I’m good.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Wow, campception! I’m sorry about the rain, but I’m glad people were able to give you dry things for sleeping in.

      • Nofsky8

        Me too, but hey all is well that ends well. Also, the rain does sound pretty, it’s started to sprinkle a bit, and we’re nice and mostly dry in our tents!

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Oh yeah, the sound of a gentle rain on a tent roof is very nice, so long as the inside stays dry.

          • Nofsky8

            Yeah, just we threw a tarp on top to make sure we didn’t wake up wet at 3 am or something.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Good call.

  • stickfigurefairytales

    I’ve definitely learned that, whether it’s camping night or not, it is officially a Bad Idea for me to lie down to “rest for a minute” and think that I won’t fall asleep.

    • davefragments

      Your Basketball team is making news

      • stickfigurefairytales

        We sported very badly in the first half of yesterday’s sports game, then turned around and sported extremely well. It was very impressive, although I could have done without the being terrible part.

        • davefragments

          I just heard little bits on the news because of a lot of silly garbage going on yesterday.
          Apparently Kobe Bryant had a very good last period

          • stickfigurefairytales

            You are silly. 😛

          • davefragments

            I was in a lousy mood yesterday. That at least brightened my day for a few minutes.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Yay! Glad we could help. ^_^

    • Yeah, I ended up passing out after dinner last night doing that. Had about an hour or two nap…

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I keep falling asleep on the couch or on top of my bed with my clothes on, then waking up sometime in the middle of the night and going to bed properly.

    KISS HIM, KYLE!!!!!

  • Ryan Pratt

    A kiss will wake your prince, Kyle. Just do what all the fairy tale princes do to wake up their loves!

    AND NEW DEPTH HAS BEEN ADDED TO AN ALREADY INTERESTING STORY

  • Ant-Man

    how convenient-

    kyle goes from being afraid of his power to becoming a master of his full power and mastery over magics he never imagined he can do- like sensing a demonic hole/space/portal within another person’s soul- and giving of his own life force/fire to bring back spooky.– and all within a couple of minutes.
    – and the only motivation he needed was tsunami saying that he loves kyle and that kyle isn’t his friend, he’s family.- now kick his butt..

    with luck- kyle sharing his life force with spooky will bond their souls and hearts to each other- become mated and live happily ever after___ that would make as much sense as the other stuff does.

    years of build up to this confrontation with demon king – ends in 2 minutes and 2 pages.__ congratulations

    • NoiseShaper

      You’re being a bit superficial there yourself.

      Laampros has pushed Kyle farther than he ever dared to go before and showed him what that kind of power could actually do by way of an unwelcome and confrontative but still effective instruction session.

      Support from Gordon and the others just helped him survive that without (so far) apparent damage.

      And we don’t know yet how this will actually turn out, but of course you’re free to ruin your own experience with your own assumptions.
