My turn

It’s her turn to shine! Stay put, Robert!

Hey everyone! I hope life’s treating you well. I’m fine and it’s more than 20 C today in Tokyo so I’m planning to go to Odaiba and just lay on the grass in the park. I can’t draw anyway because my shoulder’s in pain after yesterday’s intense drawing marathon to finish some Hisotira assets. I’m worried that I won’t make it in time. The other illustrator that was helping us is too busy with her regular work to help so I need to draw all the remaining assets. Expect me to complain a lot in the next couple of months haha~

What else is new… Not much. I started reading Kate Daniels series but it’s not for me. Every guy is handsome and they all love the main girl, but she doesn’t want to sleep with them since she wants someone to really love her (although she’s very horny, which she will state several times throughout the book) but she cannot commit to a relationship because of *magical reasons*. So yeah… Not something I can enjoy, even though the books are well written and the world is plenty interesting – I dislike the characters and the romance parts too much. Oh, and the fact that I need to know what someone’s wearing (from hat to shoes) every time they appear. I’m in book 3 and I think I’m going to stop there. That’s the series if you’re interested:

I finished reading City of Stairs by Bennett too and that was good too. It had its moment and I’ll probably remember the world for a long while. Well worth the read. There are 2 more volumes in the series and I might pick them up when I’m done beta-reading a manuscript for a friend.

Oh, I also restarted watching Expanse, realizing that I missed 3 seasons, and I’m loving season 3 so far. Recommended for sci-fi fans!

Well, enjoy the page and cross your fingers for my shoulder to last until May xD I really need to draw all those assets! You can support Historia project here: There’s still a chance to be among the first 5 patrons lol!

    (Not in quite the same way as I love Nina, but goddamn Ada is awesome!).

    Just remember, Ada, the bigger they are, the harder they fall. So don’t let it fall on top of you.

    I just wanted to comment that Ada’s look in the last panel really looks great. Then I saw that you use it in the advertisment banners, so I think you are aware ^^’

    Go Ada! I look forward to seeing the results of her plan.

    I love how cute and fierce Ada is on this page. So pretty!

    I just noticed that you’re No. 2 on TWC and wanted to congratulate you for climbing back up! 🙂

    I am aware that this is a big awesome moment for Ada and it would be ‘right’ to compose something ‘epic’…but you know how creativity is.

    You ask for ‘epic’, and what you get is ‘funny’. 😀

    Go rest your head, it’s my turn now!
    And watch me go, I’ll make it bow!
    To my will bend world and time!
    And I don’t need my spells to rhyme!

    Now come forth thunder, come forth rain!
    Where did I put that paste again…?
    Oh, no no, please, you never mind,
    I could cast this spell all blind!

    Look, just watch me and be in awe,
    as I pull all these charms I draw.
    No, I did not make these up!
    Fine, get lost, fetch us a cup!

    Of coffee, black like starry skies,
    while I make sure that this guy dies.
    Oh yes, I’d like some sugar too,
    Now shush and let me protect you.

    Bleh, now all the ‘awesome’s gone,
    ah well, now then, big Mr. Brawn.
    You’d wish you had some brains as well,
    and turn around, run from my spell.

    Not like it would help you much,
    to escape from death’s cold touch.
    which I’m going to bestow on you,
    you bit off more than you can chew.

    In the meantime, down the hall,
    Robert looks around.
    No coffee shop, no, none at all,
    not one is to be found.

    The vendor’s smashed, the power’s out,
    now what did you expect?
    T’is is a cause that’s lost, no doubt.
    But at least he checked.

      I beg your pardon?
      I’m afraid, I don’t understand.

      That I’m behind on the updates on Tapas?
      Yeah, I know, I always seem to be…maybe I’ll get around to do them today, but no guarantees. 😀

        I think he missed an “e”, and meant “one” instead of “on”. Where “one” refers to the poem, which is fairly long.

        • Refugnic Reply

          Hmm, I’d like to think that it’s just a little above average, but as I said on the Discord channel just yesterday, not every day’s the same.

          Sometimes there just is more to say than another time.

          Sadly ‘length’ does not equal ‘quality’…more often than not, it’s actually the opposite.
          The longer something drags on, the more the quality deteriorates.
          Of course there are exceptions (and it actually gets better), but you know how it is. 🙂

          Anyway, thanks for the clarification.

    She’s got a plan, can’t wait to see what other magic tricks they learned thanks to Julia and the recovered printouts!
