Thanks for your patience, guys!

I think now's as good a time as any to introduce him? I know I didn't introduce the Demon lady of Chapter 3, but you guys didn't really see much of what she can do. This guy, you'll see quite a bit, and I hope you quite like him even with his powers severely dampened by Mina:

**Demon of the Day**

#38 Halphas
Nickname: Halfy, Angry Bird, doesn't matter, he'll hate it
Prison: Minarope of Evendown
Influence on Medium: Pocket Armoury and Reinforcement

Description: A recluse reknowned amongst Demonkind for his skilled craftsmanship of different weapons and artillery. While his actual swordsmanship is not the best, his speed is still impressive. Can weaponize just about anything if necessary. Extremely pissed off, do not engage.

Notes: A lot about Halfy grew from the first OC I ever made, who was a WHOLE lot more liberal with the swearing. But we don't do swears here in FD2R, because this is a child-friendly webcomic, gosh darn it to heck!

**ANNOUNCEMENT**

Conference week is coming again, and I'm sure a lot of you already know that means a skipped update or two, which is terrible considering we've been waiting for this comeuppance on Gus for months XD

Thing is, I also have a huge workload besides the conference stuff, and I've just been, for lack of better words, utterly stressed to the point where I dream of work. (That's a bad sign, I think)

Don't worry, I'm taking care of myself and I'm still doing FD2R, which is pretty much the second most relaxing thing I do at home besides sleep (Murder soothes my heart XD). But I'm letting you guys know that updates will probably go back to a more normal, regular updating schedule around April to May. Until then, it might end up every other week.

So yeah, just letting you guys know! I also want Gus to get what he deserves pronto <3 XD

Hoooooooly smokes, that was more than worth the wait. I mean, poor Billy... but... well, I guess he sooort of had it coming in a way. ;_; Poor thing. (btw I think the lost arm switch mid-comic :P but I guess it doesn't really matter XDD)

I really am super looking forward to the next few comics BUT totally understand about the work stress, please don't overdo it and of course it's okay to take a break! ;v;* Be careful and stay healthy dear muffin <3

I really love that this demon weaponised the cards btw, and that card he's holding at the last panel of this page - hehehe. -v-* This is going to be horrific, and cool, all at the same time. FD2R: MIXED FEELINGS.

XD How the heck did I miss that, I was checking my own hand, too (maybe I have two right hands???) Tis fixed now!

Halphas can weaponize other things, too, and can pull out his actual weapons from his own little pocket dimension... if he wasn't being suppressed by Mina and in dire need of a powerup. Billy just happened to be the closest victim for the cards, since the cards did come from his person. Not that this Demon cares >_>

(I shall rest <3 Also I dunno when the exact date is but I hope you have much fun in your trip~ <3<3<3)

Dang. I haven't seen playing cards used as weapons in something in some time.

Poor Billy. He wanted to help Mina, but given his association with Gus, looks like everyone's gonna suffer here.

Definitely don't let work stress get to you, Cici. I know all too well when a job was getting to me to the point where once I got out of it, I had family members tell me how different I seemed...more positive.

I think the only ones I know that do the card thing is Gambit and Hisoka, but I'm sure there are way more XD Billy doesn't really get any benefit from trying to help Mina. Especially from the one Demon inside Mina that absolutely hates everyone.

And ah man, yeah, when work gets to that point, it really proves that the stress has weighed down too greatly. I'll try to manage it as best I can, thank you MST3K!

But, go Mina (Halfy)! (though why no red speech...?)

There's no red speech because red is reserved for when Demons are in "murderous intent" mode. Meaning that despite slashing these guys up, Halfy's not on full-on murder mode.

Yet.

Good news Gus you won't get rendered limb from limb, you'll get something far worse because the thing demons hate more than prisons or pathetically weak protagonists are assholes bigger than they are. Also good news for Dust maybe Big bird here will make Dust a weapon to defend himself.

@gamer6574 Gus probably is getting something significantly worse, if he's dumb enough to anger the Demon even more.

I dunno if Big Bird's feeling generous tonight to provide Dust with a weapon... XD

Well here is hoping there will be some eye plucking. And I hope they get generous soon because I'm guessing their good will isn't going to last another rescue.

FD2R transitions between the hilarious and the horrible better than any comic I've ever read. Mina putting her head back on is pure nightmare. If Dust had any romantic inclinations towards Mina, I think this "killed" them (he impresses me as someone who prefers the living).

Good job, Cici.

XD Thank you, Slim! I'd like to think it's because my humor isn't all that far from my horror hahaha

And regarding Dust referring the living, you would be correct (he already has a sweetheart anyway~)

True, true XD Though Billy and Jesse were pulled into this job a long time ago by being kidnapped themselves, so it's not entirely his choice being involved in this mess.

Child friendly environment... as in "The family that slays together stays together"? Or maybe "Behold the prancing demon singing disney songs and running through the meadow leaving a rainbow trail of carnage behind him"

Love your comic, Cici, but you DEFINITELY get an R rating for violence, blood, and nightmarishness!

Oh, and the card in Mina's left hand in the final frame? at first I didn't realize it was a card, and thought it was a... friendly gesture...

HAHAHAHA XD Come onnn, it's at least... PG-13, right? Right? XD

As for the left hand, do you mean just like the extremely child-friendly gesture on Mina's right, which is totally holding a prop arm? XDDD

The demon's warning was way back here.
http://fromdust2ruination.webcomic.ws/comics/159

Am I seeing it right? Is Clyde cut just at the shoulder where the suspender strap is for his coveralls? Is it just a flesh wound or did the card go clean through that part and out the other side? Guess I'll have to wait and see...

Yep, there's the warning! Though, notice that he was threatening Gus, not Billy, which will briefly come up later XD

Yep, Clyde's been slashed. It's just his... tank top? Is that what it's called? But yeah, it's just a slash, nothing as bad as Billy's arm.

Man...the whole team is about to get DESTROYED. I kinda feel bad, but also want to see some demon raging? >.> Especially Gus. He can die miserably.

Thank you for giving us a heads up on the wait! It's good to hear you are prioritizing your personal health through it all. Hope everything goes smoothly and you enjoy making the comic as much as we like reading it :)

Well, whether or not they all die miserably, at least one of them is gonna die fighting the fruitless fight.

Am trying X) It'll be great when I can get good sleeps and buffer again, but we'll see. Thank you, Proxy~
