What could be making such a racket? Whatever it is, I can guarantee it will be hard to draw, haha…

In Patreon updates, a new sketch and bit of information about our bitchy princess.

Today’s bonus art: Sketch version, a lot of info is being retained for the version posted here, although I never use thought bubbles now.

See you later in the week for another page



  • My money is on some sort of automobile.

  • Is that a giant tiger on the horizon ?

      • DS

        I love how this combines both theories of vehicle and tiger. Zoom zoom.

        • Ceceoh

          Forget a tiger in your tank. The Pasori have a tiger as a tank.

      • Yeeeees XD

    • DukeBG

      There’s no horizon in the page, though. The forth panel is a long-shot view of Rana and Co.

      • In English “on the horizon” can also mean “coming this way” in a non-literal sense, like “I have a big test on the horizon” :]

        • DukeBG

          Hm, okay. I know this saying, russian also has it, although the more often used form of it is (verbatim) “not behind the mountains”. Languages are fun, haha.

          There’s still a chance that DarkoNeko meant it literally, though ._. The panel layout kinda suggests that we’re seeing what Rana is seeing, like an explanation of why her eyes went wide. If the reader doesn’t look closely that is. It’s a very distant perspective jump that jumps right back on the next panel.

          • DukeBG

            Hm, strike that second paragraph, i’m wrong

  • DS

    I’m guessing vehicle too. Love Rana in that last panel. I need to learn to draw hands better. Poor Tesca tho. I’m pretty sure she’s gonna need a stiff drink by the end of the day. Scratch that. Everyone is gonna need a stiff drink probably.

  • Jędrzej

    Why did Hyla fall?

    • DS

      I don’t think she’s falling but either trying to pull Tesca along or break free.

      • Break free, all while the poor nurse tries her darndest to keep her under the umbrella.

        • strannik

          Is it normal that the umbrella reminds me of “thighfriend” ?

  • JuaSaysHi

    I am confused by the umbrella change.

    • MiniMoose

      Someone else was holding the multilayered umbrella! They’re still in place, looks like Tesca lurched forward to catch Hyla and we’re following Rana so we don’t see the rest of the line.

  • Ithildyn

    Man, this umbrella reminds me of thighfriend…

    • Vanelnel

      My exact thoughts, haha! :D So THAT’S where thighfriend went! :D

    • Michael

      Man, I was thinking the exact same thing.

    • It’s a tiny cameo XD

    • Ar

      In this universe they use thighfriends as umbrellas.

  • Crestlinger

    *Parade passes right by them, at speed.

  • RichWalk9891

    Is that Hyla shouting “Yay!” over and over ad nauseam?

    • Ceceoh

      I thought there was an off-screen crowd, cheering the emperor and whatever he got that goes “rrrrrrrrrrrrr”.

  • Vert

    What’s sexier than Luca deSadar?

    Luca deSadar on a frickin’ *motorcycle*, that’s what.

    • DukeBG

      I’m really sorry in advance.

      This is, obviously, an old picture by Der-shing, a googled photo and some lousy drawings by me on top. I didn’t trust myself to work over the whole photo.

  • mango

    i didn’t see any of the new pages for this chapter until today, and it’s been a while, so i went and re-read chap 2 for reference

    i am the tears and the tears are me
