Please vote for revised panels to the [absolutely butt-horrid] fight sequence to page 15. Yes, you heard me, page 15. We're on page 290 today.
One more page in this chapter. Originally I was going to put it up Thursday to make up for a horrid panic attack I had and pasted like a doofus all over the site, but I'm booked with EVERYTHING this week. The whole month looks sucky. I'm only going to be able to post on Mondays, sorry. Cast Q/A will update if I can get to it. It's iffy, but I should be able to pound out one or two of them.
In February, I've got to take a break. All the work on this part of the story is really burning me out. I can't keep doing these "page-making" marathons like I have. It's just...bad for me. Not Alone will update next month, but I don't think TWoW will. By the grace of God, I hope I'll actually get to work on creating that thing called a "buffer." D:
About the page, I had to really tweak the dialogue here because I didn't want two pages in a row ending in a question. Originally, all Mersnai said in the final panel was, "Ravar, do you know the secret of the Njinn?" But that was awkward to me, despite it being answered on the next page. I don't know if ending a page as I did here is any less awkward, but it makes me feel better. I also really love how Ravar came out in that third panel. Even though he looks a little older. I'm just going to call that a by-product of facial contortion.
Breadcrumbs! Not too many here actually.
Njinn are alive. I've said it many times before, but this is the first time in the actual comic, I believe. How they are alive is a story for another time, but like all living things, they eat and they grow. Both of Ravar and Mersnai's Njinn have been changing shape the entire story.
Some small things are going on in this page that I wish I had made a little more obvious. In my rush to finish the page last night, a few of them got hidden. I may go back in an highlight them a bit more, but I will say to watch Mersnai...very closely. Something very gradual is going on here.
WHAT HAPPENED TO RAVAR'S TAIL? Try to read between the lines here. A more in-depth explanation comes later in Chapter 8.
The next page is the last page of the chapter! Ugh! FINALLY! Been a really long chapter. Really long. Like, really. Long. Longest chapter yet, I think!
