The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 30

301 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 30

You know what they say, Duncan—if you want something done right

A couple heads up from convention folks doing cool things:

Nijicon is an LGBT East Coast convention that I’ve been a special guest at twice now. It’s a really fun time, the folks behind it are wonderful, and they’re having a Kickstarter. Please take a moment to check it out.

Also, my friend Joanna (who was one of the co-chairs for Yaoi Con) asked me to give a shout out for an actual yaoi movie that will be here in theaters in the States. She describes it as “an absolutely stunning picture that captures the blossoming relationship between the two young men.” You can find out the theater it will be playing at near you (and watch a trailer) here.

In other news, Patrons were already getting a sexy, safe-for-work digital pin-up of Hunter and Killer this month. Now, they’re also getting a fully nude version as well!

AMW_Comics_TYP_ETE-Romance-Card-HUNTER&KILLER-NSFW_400

Exactly how far down do those robotics go, anyway?

$5+ Patrons pledging in April get to download the full image of the SFW version on Patreon immediately and will then get sent the fully nude version of this pin-up as well once their payments clear at the beginning of next month. $10+ Patrons will get sent a high-res version of both images with over double the resolution! If you like what you see here, it’s still not too late to pledge for April and get both goodies!

There are lots of great benefits to being a Patron (you can see them all here along with an explanation of what the heck Patreon is), and you’d really be helping me out if you became one too. If you’re enjoying our work here and would like to see it continue (and would like to get access to all kinds of special benefits),

please take a moment to watch the video on my Patreon page and consider becoming a Patron.

So! Snakes vs. Minions: Snakes win! Which leaves Fluke to continue on his way. But now it seems like he’s attracted the attention of everyone’s favorite Silver Fox. Can we hope for a close encounter between these two?

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀

 

  • Yummy yummy yum yum

    • Chris Dangerfield

      what? snake nom nom noms?

  • A little grumpy there Ducan

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Well as usual he’s doing all the heavy lifting… 🙂

  • davefragments

    Damn, look at the size of that one wing in the background.

  • Now they don’t have to share, they each have a minion of their own. ^_^

  • davefragments

    Fluke is running toward Duncan and the bone circle portal.

  • Is it really just me, dave, and AJ here?

    • Seems like it.

    • davefragments

      oddly, I think you are right. Although syllibub bounced in and out.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      I just dropped in! Hi Doki!

    • Quiet night. Maybe a lot of people were busy today.

      • Librarican

        I’m just getting back into the rhythm of commenting and checking the comics after several months. It’s been a busy year! And yeah, I fell asleep too.

    • syllibub

      I fell asleep, haha!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        I was out like a light 2 hours ago and now am annoyingly awake hours late… so you GO girl.

      • davefragments

        I did that, too…
        Closed my eyes for only a second and suddenly it was morning.

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Fluke and the hell snakes are bros.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      They’re not very good at fistbumping, though.

      • davefragments

        I don’t want anything of mine near those fangs — not fingers, not hands, not toes, not anything.

        • I was gonna say…

          • davefragments

            I can add Nose, Ears, mouth, butt, elbows, knees, private parts…

          • Zip, zilch, nada, naught and nothing, nope, no how

          • davefragments

            Absolutely! Nothing!

          • Librarican

            For an encore sing-along opportunity:
            I’m being eaten by a boa Constrictor….

        • Librarican

          Head, Shoulders Knees and Toes.
          Head, Shoulders Knees and Toes.
          Eyes and Ears and Mouth and Nose.
          Head, Shoulders Knees and Toes.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        You ask a lot of your armless reptiles… 🙂

        (Wow demanding women are oddly sexy, I say.)

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I never thought I’d love a good bromance… but I’m softening my attitude.

  • slobber slobber slobber! Get ’em demon snakes!

  • Saxon_Brenton

    I guess Fluke plans to throw the remaining bottle at Annilator and/or the Priestess.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Just a small demon to eat them? Please?

  • I was right. Duncan was busy holding/steadying the bone circle while Sircea fixed it again. Now, will he drop it or wait?

    Looks like Paul holding those bottles created a ‘master’ respons in the snakes.. ‘No one hurts the one with the bottles around us’. That or they just went for the closest new butt, but I think it was the first option 🙂

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Always keep a hold of the magic bottle of minion snake lube I say……..

  • Minion Shane: ‘SEE!! It’s not very fun, is it? Know you know how I felt this last 10-15 minutes. Haaa-ha! And you even just got one each. Weaklings’.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      So, Shane is heavily into shadenfreude, you reckon? Okay, one more character trait to note down…

      • They have pretty much ignored him, and his little ‘problem’. At this point I’d just think F U about the rest of them, and be a little relieved that half the snakes went elsewhere xD

        • Chris Dangerfield

          It’s nice to share…. right? Well, that’s what I was taught when I was a wee minion….

        • Librarican

          In defense of the other minions, how would you suggest cleaning up a demon snake infestation? Would you call ghost busters, a snake charmer, or an exterminator?

          … And my head gave a Dalek as a fourth option with that word and wouldn’t let me ignore it.

  • Jeldenil

    Duncan’s thpughts: damn kids, you can never tidy the place in peace, and they always make a mess again right away.

  • Cman65

    Snakes for everybody you can be snake-guy 2 snake-guy 3 snake-guy 4 snake-guy 5 snake-guy 6 but no snakes for Anni and PP

  • syllibub

    These minions…are kinda useless! Sircea! Where the F did you find these people, a Hapless Morons Anonymous meeting?

    And not to be a buzzkill, but I’m really worried about Fluke. Now that the team has escaped their restraints, I think Sircea is going to shoot to kill, and Fluke’s heading right toward her and Duncan.

    • I have a feeling that if Duncan manages to get out of this, the guys he got all of his tech from are not going to be happy. He’s going to want his money back. Well, considering he most likely stole it all, he’s going to make them give him money for his troubles.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Aren’t all those aliens dead. It’s so hard to get money from dead aliens these days………. :/

        • I’m sure there are people somewhere he would demand a refund from. 😛

    • bronakopdin

      I’m going back to my “choir” idea xD

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I hadn’t realized really how frugal Sircea is. Maybe these are discount Minions? Perhaps she economized over the eons? A smart immortal sorceress would understand about compound interest, but still I think your point is well taken.

      There are time to economize and time not.

      I agree in worrying for our Paul. When does “the luck” run out? :/

      • Wildroses

        When I was a teen my Dad and I watched this terrible SF TV program with evil drones so incompetent we came up with an elaborate theory that they had all been purchased at huge expense to the antagonists from a place called: “House of Budget Robots – For the Meglomaniac of Limited Means”, owned by one of the more unscrupulous good guys, who had them all programmed to chase rather than capture or kill and aiming ability skewed 45 degrees over.

        Maybe something similar is going on here. Maybe somewhere in this world is an undercover hero who runs a temp agency of minions they carefully vet for haplessness, moronic behaviour and general incompetence that they then hire out to evil doers at huge expense as a way of draining their monetary resources.

        On a more serious note, as all magic users in this world bar Spooky and the Priestess are insane, and she didn’t want crazies anywhere near this according to Spooky who said they are probably all “flunky wannabees.” So they may well truly be the cream of the crop, it’s just that the cream was off and all the crops were rotting.

  • Shiny Gwilly

    well fluke seems like your good luck is continuing- WAIT, WHERE YOU GOING
    i think Anni and PP are more focused on the portal and getting it done, since that’s the end goal here, what they came here in the first place to do
    but Anni might get distracted with trying to stop them from stopping them

  • Those demon snakes are starting to grow on me (metaphorical, I’m not a minion xD ). They’re kinda cute when they get all protective of the bottle-keeper .. or just the bottles, and it will then include anyone happening to hold them. There could be a buddy or two in one of the bottles.

    Attacking demon snakes was creepy. Protective ones are almost cute. Damn good watchdog for sure 🙂

  • I see Fluke has some new pets. 🙂 I agree with the general consensus – the snakes are cute when they’re being protective.

  • bronakopdin

    oh my how lucky can one be xDD
    it’s awesome!
    Or maybe those snakes are just so very greedy: “minions for everyone!”

    Though I wonder thether it is a good idea to run to DUncan and Sircea… all alone…

    I love how Amanda seems to have the heavier punch compared to Kyle, judging from the flying blood and drool there ^^

    and finally: I love that you advertise the Doukyuusei Movie here, Alex! For everyone who would like to read the original manga before watching the movie, try to google “Doukyuusei” and the sequel “Sotsugyousei”

    • Klaus

      He needs to get to the dampener.

      • bronakopdin

        I totally didn’t think about that x’D
        only because it can’t be seen on this page sadly doesn’t mean it disappeared but I guess it’s in that direction then ^^

      • Chris Dangerfield

        “Dampener” actually sounds like a Sci Fi “Treckian” device used to shower in outer space… 🙂

    • Cman65

      Looks like they have enough snakes to go around .

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Oh, good more happy snakes!

    Dampener kids… DAMPENER.

    I keep forgetting why my Kyle doesn’t go all “Flame On.” Then it comes back to me. Dammmmmpener. And that last great panel of an annoyed Duncan in his special neo-glow thing reminds me about it all.

    Another white knuckle trip to the next page… you sneaky Alex… I think we may have to drag him back from all these “Cons” to get this battle resolved. Great stuff guys. You may kill us through anticipation though. Thanks… I think! 😀

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Fluke is working on the dampener. Originally I thought he was running towards Annihilator, but after reading the script and re-examining the art, Fluke is running diagonally across Annihilator’s field of view towards the dampener. I presume that’s why Annihilator has the cranky-pants look on his face; he can see what that pesky kid is planning.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Darn Scoobies… 😀

  • I hope one of those vials is full of snakes and Fluke hits Duncan with a bullseye with it. Of course, that begs the question of who is stronger: Demon Snakes or the Duncanator?

    • I hope for a big boom or something else destroying that dampener. They seriously meed to remove that disadvantage before going for Team Silver again.

      • Klaus

        They barely held them when they were six. Now they are only four.

        • But to even HAVE a chance, dampener must go bye-bye.

          • timemonkey

            Well, there’s also the chance that PP goes too far in her attack and Duncan turns on her. But that’s pretty unlikely.

      • Well the moment Fluke gets close to Duncan, @chrisdangerfield:disqus’s Plan B might happen with that personal dampner he’s wearing (Duncan, not Chris, though I’m sure Chris would like one) going cablooey. Which would then put them to a closer even keel.

  • John

    I can just imagine Duncan all like “Oh for Gods’sake I just cleaned up!”

  • John

    I can just imagine Duncan all like “Oh for Gods’sake I just cleaned up!”

  • Nate

    Weirdest “puppy pile” EVER. 😉

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Point!

  • Fabulous Alien

    I love how Paul is saying “thanks, guys!” and the demon snakes are going all “hiss hiss (you’re welcome, buddy)”

  • Pietro7

    Question: in the pencils it looked like Ani had his right arm extended up behind his head to help support the Bone Circle, but the colorized pages show no sign of that arm at all. Is this an oversight or did you change your mind about it? Just wondering.

    • Look in the middle of the red glow above his head. The arm is there, it’s just not that clear behind the shade the red create.

      • Pietro7

        Aha! Thanks, Danish, I see it now. Gracias!

  • D. G.

    So glad the snakes came to the rescue.

  • jreed3842

    Awww. Those demon snakes are kinda cute.

  • TwilightDreamer

    Last time I said the snakes moving was either gonna be really good or really bad….so glad it was good! XP haha, better move quickly everyone, you’ve been spotted ;P

  • Dennis Grace

    I can’t parse that last frame. Duncan and the bone gate, but what’s happening? Is he just observing in horror, or is he actually doing something?

    • He looks pissed, but he’s has to hold on to the bone circle while Sircea fixes it. Question is if he’ll just let it go… let it go~

      (Sorry, not sorry. Couldn’t help it)

  • Juliet

    Those are some cute snakes.

    Well, having owned a snake as a child I have a soft spot for them already, but…

    • Cman65

      Looks like they have enough snakes to go around

  • Chris Dangerfield

    I could be wrong, but I suspect it’s The Woolfson’s birthday. If true, then I’m wishing him a glorious non-page day. If I’m wrong, then I’m just wishing him a very very good non-page day! Either way, thanks all this swell entertainment. It pretty much makes all days better. 🙂

    • You’re a day early 🙂

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Oh well, it’s always tomorrow here on the leading side of the international date line in Australia. So, happy birthday Alex.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        DOH!

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Okay… OPTION-B: Someone just run over to Duncan (who’s totally got his grunty he-man, “I’m holding up the heavy bone ring” face on… AND TURN OFF HIS ARM BAND ‘NULLIFIER’.

    See? Huh?

    So, suddenly good old Duncan is ‘nullified’ and becomes just another weak, but hunky old dude. Thus, he is forced to drop said heavy bone ring, which either shatters or if FLUKE is still running super luck, sqashes Sircea flat (Sorry Sillibub), which means now Duncan has to be the villain all by his lonesome. Nice huh.

    Okay, unlikely, but it cheered me up. I love having characters hoisted on their own petards, so to speak. HA!

    • Pietro7

      Perhaps Commander has taken a special class in petard-hoisting and will now demonstrate the finer points for the rest of us?

    • Klaus

      As was Spooky recently.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Yes, but because of valiant Flyboy saving bravery… however foolish, Flyboy is alive because of said Spooky-petardness… right? 😀

        • Klaus

          Yes.

  • amusingmurff

    The tiny Fluke seen through the bone ring makes me think something is either about to go really well for our heroes re: portal to hell, or really really badly.

    • davefragments

      I think that we are going to see what’s inside those bottles that Spooky dropped and Fluke picked off the ground. One is glowing yellow and the other is glowing red.

      • amusingmurff

        Yeah, but they’ve just had an extraordinary stroke of good luck, and Fluke’s powers allegedly deal out balancing doses of good and bad luck. So the placement of him in the same frame and likely the visual sightlines of Anni makes me think narrative-wise, we’re due for a setback.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          ouch.

  • Cman65

    See I did bring plenty enough snakes to go around

    • Chris Dangerfield

      A party question that is always appropriate.

  • Suhndog

    happy B-Day Alex! Thanks for the [comic] memories!

    BTW, did you notice in panel 3, the snakes are no longer looking at their ‘captives’?
    Is there a connection between those Vials and the snakes? Hmmm

  • Dakejev

    I know it’s unlikely to happen that way, but I so wish the bad guys won this encounter. I don’t want to see what would happen to Duncan if he failed to open the portal. =(

    • timemonkey

      Exactly what he deserves. And likely a similar fate that’ll happen to billions of others if he wins.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        The hell-runes are gouged into Duncan’s arms… I just can’t see how that turns out well, today, tomorrow or four books into the future. 🙂

        (everyone knows I’d be horrified if something unfortunate befell our little Annihilator after the way he treated my Kyle on his ‘first’ gay-date. LOL.)

        • timemonkey

          Best case scenario is Kyle burns it off. Should be a fun time…for me anyway. XD

        • TheManBehindTheCurtain

          Personally I think that since Laampros can kill Duncan through the link the runes make, he’s probably been watching and listening everything Duncan and Sircea have done and said.

          That’s what I would do if I were Laampros.

      Now I picture Alex at a head-banger rock concert, high on something with his hands in the air in those devil horn symbols, rockin’ and ‘head banging’ to some major metal band……….

      I’ve having trouble with this birthday image. 😀

      • Klaus

        Picture Alex sitting calmly in a rocking chair, pondering the next YP storyline. Feel better now?

    Happy Birthday, Alex! 😀

  • purplefoxglove

    Maybe it’s because I’ve been playing Zombies, Run! for the last few months, but I totally get a “Runner-5-Feeling” from Fluke right now – as in “Quick, Runner Fluke, grab those vials! You might need to drop them later on to distract the minions! Never mind, got a few friendly demon snakes with no sense for personal space over there. Nice work orchestrating a distraction. Now, while he’s still distracted, hurl one of the potions at the Annihilator! Quick, Runner Fluke! RUN!”

  • huh, I had it down as the 26th in my little book.

    • davefragments

      It is Saturday, the 30th. Has been for (what did I say) 29 years (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). Not a day over 30.

        but how many times have you turned 29? 😛

      Did you know that on your birthday, GOOGLE changes their banner to makes, cupcakes, and goodies with candles? It’s cute. Inedible, but cute.

      • No I did not. ^_^ But that does seem nice. ^_^

  • Stephen Hutchison

    Like I said. Totally Fluke Fanserpents.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Fan-serpents! HA.

    I like that. Alex, and his demon reptiles, pandering to his fans. An issue, once again. I’ve spoken to him about this so many times. However, when it comes to demon snakes, he just seems to lose his sense of restraint and lose all control.

    I mean ARTIFICE would have been full of demon snakes if a few of us hadn’t put our feet firmly down!!!

    So reprehensible. I guess we’ll just have to accept it as an Alex Woolfson peccadillo… you know?

    Okay, a small price to pay for all we get. 😀

  • Snorlaxation

    I don’t remember who said it a few pages ago, but the angle of those last two shots really throws me off

    • Mir

      It kind of looks like Duncan is just screaming at the pile of bones while Fluke is running in the background.

      • Snorlaxation

        Not to mention how high or flat the ground is.

  • D. G.

    Happy birthday Alex!!!

  • Klaus

    Happy birthday Alex!

  • davefragments

    Duncan or Sircea has to do something.
    Remember that SIrcea said the bone ring does not have to stand or even be there. It is just to create a dramatic portal for Laampros to enter through.
    Laampros has to make an entrance – a truly splendid, epic entrance:

    The Broadway version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hleIEKRmeX4
    Animated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEryAoLfnAA

    A big entrance … like that … some spectacle…

  • Hello fellow campers!

    • davefragments

      Hi AJ.

      • Hi Dave!!

        • davefragments

          I gave up on finding a new movie. I put THE MARTIAN on again. I you;d have watched Kurosawa tonight but that has subtitles and I can’t type while watching.

          • Yeah, gotta concentrate when subtitles are on the screen. Deadpool is out for download.

          • davefragments

            DEAD POOL is still only a “Buy” on Comcast. I’m not about to spend all that money. I just had to spend a tiny fortune on a plumber to get my guest bathroom working again.

          • Damn plumbers!

          • davefragments

            The bathtub only ran hot water and the toilet was squirting water onto the floor from between the tank and base. Plus, they found that my drain in the bathtub was nearly rusted through. The perfect Trifecta of awful.
            The alternative was everyone else using my bathroom.

          • Yeah, no. Poor bathroom.

          • davefragments

            I actually could talk to the one plumber about engineering because that was his background. We have pipes, tubes, valves, fittings, materials, and all sorts of fun things in common.

          • That’s cool. Did it get you a discount? 😉

          • davefragments

            $30 thanks to a coupon.
            (Don’t even ask the price, please don’t. I’ll cry if you do.)

          • I won’t. That would just be mean

          • I can SO recommend the new Capt. America movie. Go see it when it comes out in US too next week!
            I saw it two days ago, and want to see it again, so might do that along with the time the next X-men movie is out in May.

          • davefragments

            Will do.

          • Tyler Griffin

            When in doubt, I just marathon RuPaul’s Drag race

          • davefragments

            I never watched that. I was thinking of KAGEMUSHA.

      • Hey dave!

        • davefragments

          Hi Doki.

    • Hello AJ! Doki might not be around much, she just got out of the shower, has to do laundry, make her bed, and probably kill things in Diablo III to work off some anger issues.

      • Hiya Doki! Kill a few extras for me. Some idiot was doused in perfume/cologne at the store today, nearly killed me (edit: not literally, but damn that was just nauseating).

        • davefragments

          It’s like the “Wall of AXE” body spray for men.

          • I don’t get these people that do that. It wasn’t a young person either. Should know better than that.

        • Can do. ^_^ I have found that whenever I am sufficiently angry, playing a Diablo game is very helpful. It has story, but 90-98% of the game is killing things – undead, weird creatures, human-creature hybrids (like dryder type things – http://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/projects/70605/posts/183385/image-96129-full.jpg ), humanoids…..though the demon flame bird things look really gorgous.

      • Tyler Griffin

        Kill lots for me, the city where I work made a few national headlines last night for their new trans bathroom law…

        • Such idiots. Idiots idiots idiots. We need anti-dumbass laws.

          • Tyler Griffin

            Indeed, thanks to the 6month prison sentence penalty, we now have dubious honor of replacing NC as the harshest law currently on the books

          • davefragments

            How do they know unless they stick their heads under the partitions?

          • Tyler Griffin

            ya know, there was a headline I saw linked on tumblr the other day about a woman who was arrested in NC recently under that law. Not a trans woman, biological born woman, apparently the arresting officer had decided that she wasn’t pretty enough to be a “real” woman. So, I guess that answers your question Dave?

            Unfortunately I was at work and couldn’t read the whole thing, and now google is not being helpful in finding it again.

          • davefragments

            I’ve known some pretty masculine looking women.
            I think it is just another way to shame some women and certainly a way to put their tiny egos after they lost at same-sex marriage.

          • If that’s the article I think it is (that went viral on FB too) then it’s a fake. The pics used for article is from a 4 year old other case.

          • Tyler Griffin

            Since I can’t seem to find it now, that’s probably a safe bet, thanks Danish. I’m kind of relieved to know it was hoax, as I couldn’t imagine the humiliation of someone actually going through that, although I imagine that it’s probably only a matter of time

          • It got a lot of people believing it though. I was just lucky to stumble over the fake fact in another article about the article minutes after reading it.
            The law is damn stupid.

          • It burns us, the stupid burns us.

        • There are always plenty of things to kill in Diablo games. ^_^

    • Tyler Griffin

      good evening

    • Pietro7

      Hello Admiral and everybody. I brought chocolate chip brownies to camping. (Hands around a plate of them.)

      • YAY! *grabs brownie* Sugar after grocery shopping is always a must!

  • syllibub

    Noooo I completely missed Alex’s Happy Birthday-athon! Well…I hope it was fantastic Alex, sorry my good wishes are belated!

    • I don’t think he has checked them yet so you could still sneak one in maybe?

    • Only a day, so not that belated.

  • HA! 😛

  • Doki still has some yellow cake with chocolate icing if anyone wants some? *Doki puts the leftover cake on the snack table*

    • davefragments

      Yummy!

    • Yay! *grabs piece of cake* Nom nom nom

    • Pietro7

      (takes slice of cake) Tasty! (puts brownie plate on table next to cake, sneaks off with second slice of cake. Contented munching sounds.)

  • Evening/morning/good day to you lovely folks 🙂

  • Sapfo

    Good day good people! )~

  • Doki’s bed is made, last load of laundry is in the dryer, folding the laundry in her room…..Doki needs that shirt folder helper thing

  • Soon! Soon we get to see what Duncan, and Sircea, will do next.

  • If anyone is interested in a really nice comic, Doki recommends an ongoing comic called What Happens in Carpediem…. http://whic.smackjeeves.com/comics/2267074/120019/

    Doki is very happy with the latest pages, though things are going to be getting very interesting with the main character very soon ^_^

    It is by Piggy Ho Ho and reads right to left. ^_^

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Ooh, I might have to check that out.

      • Yes you will, it is one of my faves. ^_^ *is super excited to see where the rest of this chapter is going*

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Wow, I made it to camping! I thought for sure I was going to miss it.

    • davefragments

      Hi there!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Hi Dave!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        How’s your night going?

        • davefragments

          ok. Quiet.
          I gifted myself a couple hours of Internet Broadway today.
          So I feel OK.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Glad to hear it.

    • Evening, Ms. Sticky!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Hello, dear Admiral!

        • How’s it going?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Pretty well – I’m happy it’s the weekend! How about you?

          • Same ol’ same ol’. A bit tired. I have to try to finish crocheting a purse for my SIL. It was her birthday recently and she and my brother are coming for a visit

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Ooh, good luck! I’d love to see pictures when it’s done.

          • If it comes out, I’ll post some on Tumblr.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Yay!

    • *snuggles with stick since laundry killed most of her anger issues, though she is still going to play Diablo III later*

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Yay! *snuggles* I hope you destroy many things in Diablo III.

    • Hiya, you came just in time.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Glad to be here! How are you doing?

        • Good. Things are typical daily life, and currently calm.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Nice.
