Drake came off more sad and less angry than I had wanted in that second to last panel. Ah well, the whole tone's a bit off from what I had wanted, but onward to the flashback. Prepare for oodles of dragons.
re comic king: but then he did, so much for that.
re BlAiZeD: thanks ^_^
re Hippiepanda: I think once I get my own house I'll get a Labrador hybrid since purebreds are prone to arthritis, which is really sad to see.
re amiko_16: thanks ^_^
re Onasaki: oops, confusing syntax. They're dead, not him
re LuluMoon: He's certainly being angry/defensive now, but he was a bit of a jerk before anyways, although dragons just tend to be arrogant and cranky in general.
re Mythee: Dragons are so vengeance-oriented that they don't seem to lend themselves to emo like vampires do. Drake's got a few good friends who can deal with his attitude. They'll show up later.
re TheDemonDragonCat: yup, but there'll be an epic flashback with a massive dose of them before they all disappear.
re Imola: parents are just so inconveinient for stories. At least I mannaged to keep Joan and Teddy's folks allive ^_^
re doom Bubbles: nah, Drake can't be an exiled prince. He's not allowed to inherit and no one's around to exile him anymore.
re axielouise: ^_^
re BatsAreFlyingRats: Joan's family had to leave the town because trade routes had shifted and they couldn't sell their taspestries. They couldn't bring her because of her eye. Joan was sort of safe at her home because they had known her when she was little, but if she had moved too the new people would probably accuse her of being a witch.
re Tyto Alba: ^_^ wow, you chewed though the comic fast
