Another slightly self-indulgent fencing page. The next page will be more story oriented.

Footwork is murder on the legs. Lots of moving around in a partial crouch. Poor Joan.

re pfmoi: I think most folks are so used to playing with toy swords and not actually hitting that switching to really trying to hit is a tough change.

re man in black: Yes, Drake's still not used to not having nice armored scales anymore


re Imola: Agreed about Drake. There was some twisting in the pose that went wonky, but at the point I noticed how off it looked, if was too late for an easy fix. ah well.

re StellaFrost: I can't spend all this time building it up and then do nothing, cant I :)

re Eva Emaria: Bats would be such a cheap move! Imagine focusing on an opponent when they suddenly explode into bats in your face.

re doom Bubbles: can't stab them all!

re Arrikanez: here's another update for you!

tRickityHouses: Glad you're still reading and enjoying!

I mean, bats isn't any worse of a cheap move than the one fight where I (the senile ditz sister) offered to help my fight partner (the evil smart sister) up after knocking her down by accident, and she tried to set me on fire... (She actually hit me with the wad of flammable material stuff at one fight, there was a BIG panic.) I've also done a fight where we've done a fake hair cut...

Uuuugh, I hate footwork. At least I got validated this year that staff footwork is different from the fencing footwork they have us use, I knew it didn't feel right! Don't worry Joan, if you can still feel your feet, you are doing okay.

Joan's come so far from the girl she was, gosh. I should go back to the beginning for a reread....

He's a cruel taskmaster

Turns out he's a good teacher! :O

Heh. I have totally been where she is before right now - just not with THAT much practice. I wonder if she's actually going to learn anything, or just... be sore and worn out the entire time.

I was afraid you'd say that.

I sent you an email through the forum regarding Sierra.

.... Gotta say I'm dubious on how a duelists technique will be useful for more than building a foundation. Solifidians don't seem to be easy to funnel into a place where they have to come one by one.... not to mention something about how techniques for fighting in a ring/with sportsmanship tend to be at a disadvantage in an actual fight.

Bags of tricks are for when you're otherwise outmatched in speed and strength... and possibly cunning too.

Awesome comic! love seeing the story play out, Drake is a snarky lil shit, definitely my favourite character hahah :D

Also: do you have a Tumblr? I drew some fanart but I'm unsure as to how I'll go about sharing it with you... (I don't have a deviant account)
