You could tell me that's too much blood and you'd probably be right because I don't actually know much about these things, but I would retort thaaaat Fairs really just smash up easy. Or that it's artistic license. Depends on my mood.

There's been a few comments expressing confusion over what's been going on lately, and what with it being a confusing scene already but also having slow updates, I can certainly understand how that would happen. I figured I would also post the explanation that I gave on the previous page here too, for people's convenience.

At the end of the last chapter if you recall, there was a lot of concern for the prospect of Gabe being stolen, and then it appears that that is what happened. Then at the start of this chapter we went back to see what happened on the night of the fire, ending with Chris being taken away. Then we came back to the present, following what we saw at the end of the last chapter- Gabe being taken away, the masked man escaping with him. The King had assured Chris that he was prepared for this though, and as much as he didn't think it was a true threat, he was stationing his men EVERYWHERE just in case.

So we left off Toby chasing a Fair in the past, while in the present one of the King's men is chasing a Fair in the present. And in this current scene the two times are muddled, we see both what happened than and is happening now. And they're not so different."

Ah'll sithee later.

@HVoice: You too believe the hooded servant might be a brainwashed Toby, right?

@Graf Saecula: No one confirmed that he died, just "dealt with" or "taken care of" ;)

I had actually re-read from the start of the fire when you updated the last page. I think a lot of the confusion comes from the time between pages, rather than the writing or panels being confusing. At first I was pretty confused, but when I re-read the pages all together, what was happening was a lot clearer to me.

So I just wanted to say that, in case you were worried people weren't understanding it because of how you wrote it. I really think less people would have been confused if everything was read together, and thats the only issue. Your storytelling is good.

@Pronce: That's reassuring to hear, thankyou! I hoped that would be what it came down to. Does make me wish I could update more frequently, but alas.

Yup, I did a massive "haven't read h0ly comics since 2015" binge a couple of nights ago (what a fun ride!) and it was very easy to tell what was happening in these scenes. So close to the end ahhhh, catching up was very jarring!

Actually from personal experience, if that's a forehead cut, there's not nearly enough blood.

@[|\/|]: But it's a FAIR amount.

Ah fuck, Toby (guessing) hit the Fair so hard his eyeball popped out.

Just came over from Mokepon and it took me a moment to realize that was his mask and that he did not, in fact, drop a pokeball.

Its gotta be Toby! I've been hoping he would make a return. If I get to the end of the story and he is legit KO'd I've got some serious mourning to catch up on.
