Mina's not sure what's more terrifying: the horde of angry Livvely folks shooting them down, or the redhead that not only stole bread in broad daylight, but also is now laughing and running in the face of Death.
That said, there is a strange flutter in my heart seeing Dust so deviously happy after all the despair and frustration before. I almost wanna just hold this precious child forever XD
Unfinished page, you say? Yesh.
I didn't want to delay what should've been an easier page to finish because I just haven't had the time to do any paging the past few days. Sickness, work stuff, even technical difficulties for gosh darnit... *sigh* October is not my month. It just isn't.
I will finish the flatting and shading later today if I can. This week will be even busier for me, so next page might go up November. Apologies and thank you for your patience!
LOL Mina's been truly thrust into a situation she's never been through.
Dust's in his apparent 'element' otherwise it seems right now stealing things. XD
Aw, Cici... *glomp*
It's okay. Life and all that gets in the way. No apologies necessary. Your audience is very understanding about things.
Thank you, MST3K <3 *glomps back*
I'm just frustrated because this month was supposed to let me have much more free time, and instead it was wasted on me getting sick, ya know? :,D
This is all very new and terrifying to Mina, yes... and while Dust would normally groan at the sound of Mina's voice, right now her terrified screams just amuse him XDDD
(Dust knows something Mina doesn't: People in Livvely intentionally miss)
What a reversal.
How do the guns fit in, exactly? I know from last time that they used to be a thing but if people still know about them (as Dust does) what has stopped them from recreating them?
Alrighty! *rolls sleeves* I promise I’ll keep explanations from being entire essays XD
Nobody mass-produces guns in FD2R. Anymore.
Guns originated from the Khovard Dominion, where many weaponsmiths also originate and go to in honing their craft. However, there came a time when people of Khovard decided “hey, this lets us have our own powers without depending on those dang Asters and their rules, let’s overthrow Aster worship and build a world empire of just us Humans”.
The long and short of it: a 300-year war between magic and guns resulted from this, lots of firearms and artillery were scrapped and destroyed, and all future firearms made were under strict gun control.
And then there’s Mayor Livvely.
Mayor Livvely was the one in charge of confiscating guns in Evendown. Those guns had to go somewhere, and as easy as it would be to just dump it all in a pit, it’s also just as easy for someone to dig it up and smuggle the guns and ammo. His solution?
Dump it in the middle of town and paste a “Free Guns” sign on the pile.
Stupid, yes. But it worked in a sense. People of Livvely made it a point that none of the guns made it outside Livvely, and no one would actually get shot... intentionally... so yeah. They’re “disposing” via using it all up for every inane thing.
Like monthly shooting tournaments.
Or intentionally missing a pair of bread thieves.
(This not-short and intentionally ridiculous essay brought to you by Cici)
Not sure how much you need to add Cici. It tells the tale just fine as is. Though I admit I have always liked the art as it helps the world building.
Story-wise, this page is complete, yesh! It's just the coloring and shading that still needs to be finished, and I'll try to get to that (and the next page) once life allows me XP
It's nice to see Dust happy for once. X)
Lol! This sums it up perfectly!
Hahaha, I am expecting all the Aladdin references this update, but I didn't think you'd do THIS, D XDDD It's perfect!
Oh no - they shot the bread!!
It was good bread, it will be missed... *mourns*
Tip for Mina: if you see Dust run by, follow him as fast as you can.
That or just tell everyone she is in no way associated with that insane thief XDDD
Hmmm... and no-one saw this coming!
on the bright side, he didn't leave Mina behind... I dub this ship... MUST!!!
(Chanting) MUST MUST, Mina Dust, Mina Dust, MUST MUST
Sing it with me fellow shippers!!!!!
PS. Take your time, Cici, we'll still be here cheering for ya!
XDDD Yes, this was tooooootally a surprise to all of us XD
(Thank you Don~)
Haha Mina I'm totally with you here... it's just bread people! What the fridge?! xD
Dust finally looks happier.. as much as his thief life isn't the best one there could be, it's something he's familiar with and stuff finally make sense to him. Even if it's accopanied with bullets xD
Last but not least.. I'm amazed at how much I don't notice things when reading webcomics xD Every time Serpy uploads a WIP and now that you've done it I don't realise that until I see the 'sorry for obvious WIP' message and then I go back and am like 'oh yeah.. it is WIP' xD
All the YES to this XD
Matt has a point, the bullets probably cost more than the bread itself hahaha (but the truth is, the bullets are free so... they don't really hold back, they're free to be trigger-happy at every little thing. Explanation is above, over at AllZephyr's, and it's intentionally a dumb explanation XD)
Mina and Dust are both such precious children <333 XDDD (li'l slubber? >_>)
I think you definitely did most of the page so I couldn't tell it wasn't finished at first so no worries, take your time <33
*sings Aladdin with glee*
(Grinning Dust is beautiful btw <333 I hope he took some jam with him too!)
I'm starting to wonder what a musical of FD2R would be like now XDDD
Grinning Dust brought me more joy than I thought it would XD It's a very rare and precious thing, apparently.
(Dust's sweet smile IS the jam LOL)
Looks like he got some CHEESE to go with it
and some CORNNNNN
Seriously, those bullets probably cost more than the bread!
It probably was during production, yes, hahaha XD
When these people got the bullets and guns, though, it was 100% free, and there's still more in storage for the whole town to use. That's why they don't hold back XP
I'm just waitin for Dust to break out in song LOL
This page is adorable! Dust is so okay with all those bullets flying in the air Haha!!
Slightly off topic, this GIF made me realize the lack of nipples on Aladdin LOL
I was wondering how many Aladdin references were gonna come up for this update XDDD <3 I had One Jump Ahead in mind for this particular page.
(The only reason he's okay with it is because he knows Livvely folks do not intentionally try to shoot anyone down, even if they are a thief. You can have a gun, you just can't shoot anyone ;P)
Dust is so cool about the whole thing :)
Rain of bullets aside, Dust feels "comfortable" about this situation X)
Wow, lovely page - and so lively indeed... =D
...well, Dust is really enjoying it...
...poor Mina, though...
Hahaha, it is a crazy situation for Mina. I think she'd rather entertain Demon murder instead of this XD
