Whew, I’ve wanted to get to this part for a long time. I think this should help with motivation a lot. The start of this chapter has been kind of boring, but things start to pick up now. I’ve been waiting years to introduce Haze!
Not all changelings sparkle, but most fairy changelings do. The sparkles are fluctuations in the dense magic around them. Slightly fang-like teeth, strange eye colours and pupil shapes and pointed ears are also common traits of fairy changelings, but the sparkle is the most obvious tell that it’s a fairy you’re dealing with. All changelings have white hair.
Gotta hand it to Cyril, he’s a pompous git, but he’s got guts keeping his mouth shut after threats from somebody with a House Ellis sword. Well, he’s either got guts or he’s a total idiot.
I love how on this page, Sarin and Rekki grumble about teenagers when they’re only twenty themselves.
Happy 2012 everybody! I hope you all had great holidays!
I’m feeling pretty refreshed from mine actually. I have good vibes about this year! Olympics! Yeah! Our logo and mascots are terrible! Hahaha!
Hmm, has somebody been messing around with demons? The plot…actually might have started moving! This chapter is a lot slower than the previous story arc so far!
I am really enjoying drawing and writing Tsubasa. I don’t often have charming bishounen types in my comics!
Fun fact: When I named Sarin, I had no idea her name was also the name of a deadly nerve gas. I made up a bunch of runes and constructed names out of them for some characters, Elrekia, Subo and Sarin are runic names, meaning ‘ambitious woman’, ‘tall tree’ and ‘sincere child’ respectively.
I think the in-story explanation is that Sarin’s parents wanted to give her a traditional Anglish runic name to make her fit in better (Sarin was born in Anglise, but her parents are from Nippon, which is of course the FDG world’s Japan). Unfortunately they picked a name which a few years later became the name of a deadly gas (sarin gas was developed in the sixties as it was in our universe, this comic takes place in 1975).
