Before I forget- Happy Holidays

Finally taking the time to wish happy holidays to everyone. Late, as usual. Hope all is well, peaceful and restful (and fun too!).
I've (slightly) escaped from work and am now visiting my folks here up in the northwest of Quebec. Work may still contact me at the beginning of next week, and there is more comic work waiting, but I don't mind. Right now, just enjoying the change of weather and all the snow (wait, it's supposed to rain tomorrow- booooooooh!).

Apologies it took so long to update.



Managed to finished working on a few more pages, yay! Not too happy with them, some drawings I'm really unhappy with, but...moving on. I'll still have some time to fix them before posting them on DA, if I have the energy to do it.













I hope to update the rest soon, sometime after the holiday, as what's coming up is what I keep referring to as the long epilogue.
But I may be slowed down by actual work...heck, that's all my mind is thinking of these days- work work and more work.
I think I'll go and stare at a snowbank to try and clear my mind.

Experiment time: I need to get my hands on an unopened can of diet Pepsi and an unopened can of regular Pepsi. Apparently, if you put the two in water, one will sink and one will float. I need to find out if that's true. After that, if it actually happens, I'll try to find out why.
Something about density...

Artificial sweeteners taste much sweeter than sugar, so you only need a little bit in one can of Pepsi to make it as sweet as regular Pepsi. The difference in density between the sugar-water Pepsi and the tiny-amount-of-aspartame-or-whatever-in-water Pepsi makes one sink and the other float in water.

Yay more water tribe!

YES!
Ha ha, thanks for the science explanation. I'll be going to sleep with one more (possibly useless) fact of existence.
Nothing like it to get a good night's sleep.

It's the same thing with light beers and regular beers too! My physics teacher in high school would tell us about how he'd go to a party and even though it looked like they were out of non-light beers, he could stick his hand all the way to the bottom of the ice bucket and fish out a regular because they all sank to the bottom! :D

Oooooooooh, updates! *glee!*

Lao, you sneaky devil. (Did he just steal Azula's make-up jar or what?)

The fishies love ya, Zhao.

Merry Christmas, Ruff! Waiting to hear what happens with your experiment. :)

Ha ha, nope! This is the little stone pot he managed to keep from Zhao's home. Azula warned him not to bring anymore useless things on board.
Zhao doesn't have any fishie love interest. None, whatsoever.
As for the experiment, many people have given me aswers already. I'll still do it anyway, for fun.

Ughhh I'm on dialup XC I will have to spend an hour loading all of these, I am dying for more WT!

Hope you manage to relax for two seconds :)
rufftoon

Gah, dial-up! Much sympathy, I still remember quite well how that is (playing stupid card games on the comp waiting for pages to load).
My two seconds of relax are used up. I'll see if I can catch a few more in the next few days.

Happy holidays! Ack, I can't write that much, I'm on an itouch right now. The new pages were completely unpredictable, such awesome twists! LOL it was epic! Ideas are rushing through my head for a new layout using those pics. If u put a mint in a bottle of soda it will explode.

Happy holidays right back at ya, and many thanks!
I don't know if any of these images are good for layouts- lots of wonky drawings. I'll try and make the end part prettier.
I will not try any exploding experiments while at home with the parents. They may just throw me out XD

LAO <3 I was cracking up.

This was the most excellent time for an update. I was watching The Deserter tonight, and commenting on how big of a douche Zhao was xD He is way too entertaining. And aww, how sweet, the fish like him! But I wonder how he will take his imprisonment?

And you write/draw out Azula's craziness wonderfully. I am getting the same "ooh that's bad" feeling I got during the finale when I read her panels.

Anyway, great great update! I'm sad to know it will be coming to an end (kind of) soon.

Enjoy your break and the snow!

Zhao IS an entertaining bastard!
I can't say that the fish like him, more like "we're not done with you yet, mister! Mwahaha!"
The Azula here may not be as totally crazy as the one from the serie. But if she was, she wouldn't be going around scheming as much.
Lovely Azula icon by the way.

Eeeee, squeee, beautiful! And Lao with all those Water Tribe people behind him (heh heh heh), and how sad the captain looks. O:(
rufftoon
Dec. 27th, 2008 04:16 pm (UTC)
The captain knows Azula too well. He doesn't expect to live the shame of his failure for very long.

Called it on Lao screwing things up for Azula.
The third page is hilarious, he really knows how to piss her off. XD
I kinda like that Azula is still loose.

Poor Zhao. Always getting the crap ending, even when he's the protaganist. I'm probably one of many who was half hoping he would be the hero, marry Nauja, have beautiful children, blah blah blah, rainbows and sparkles. (okay, mabey not the last part). But that is wishing for way too much.
rufftoon

Ha ha, I think I left enough hints about Lao scheming something. No one destroys his home with his booty-loot-swag in it without paying a price!
I'm not gonna stop Azula from wrecking havoc on the world. Someone has to kep Zuzu on his toes.
Hard for Zhao to have a happy ending- mostly because our idea for a happy ending for him doesn't go with HIS idea of a happy ending (power and glory!). Meh, he's just too good at screwing things up...for our entertainment!

That's a horrible last page

and by horrible I mean brilliant because it made me say 'WH-WHAT THE HECK WHAT HAPPENS NEXT??'
And that's what last pages should do.

My comments to this comic are very redundant but I love it so so much~!

Next will be the long epilogue...and I better shut up now or risk spilling whatever little surprise I may have left if any.

Thank you for this holiday gift :) 12 pages, yessssss!

Dans tous les cas, passe de bonnes fêtes :) Il me tarde de lire la suite, et donc j'espère que tu seras en parfaite santé pour continuer :p

I guess it counts as a holiday gift.
Je devrais être capable de travailler un peu sur la fin pendant le congé, à moins que le boulot me contacte. Je me croise les doigts, ça serait bien de terminer au début de l'année.

Lao is just made of win! Also love Azula's WTF face. XD

Looking forward to the long epilogue. Can't believe it's almost over - *le sigh*


Wish you some nice days in Quebec - at least as long as you can. :3

Lao has proven more fun than I thought when I first started drawing him. But his part is almost over too.
Getting a nice 2 weeks in the snow. Going to enjoy it as much as I can.

Happy (upcoming) new year! Thank you!

Happy New Year in advance! I don't know if I'll have the time to post then, so why not wish it now.

Lao and Azula, such a lovely pair. XD Water Tribe <3

A self destructing pair! Azula would blast him to little pieces.

My present IS more rest, so all is good.
Believe me, Zhao IS worried about that! Both the spirits AND the yelling. XD
Naaaah, Lao isn't as cool as Zhao. But he's been fun to play around with. And yes, he's got his own worrying to do too now.

As a thank you for all the wonderful Water Tribe you've given everyone, here's a little something just for you. A Zhao haiku!

Zhao

Born Fire Nation,
Ambitious and hot-tempered,
With no self-control.

Slayer of the moon,
Pulled and pushed by the ocean,
Reborn Water Tribe.

***

Happy Holidays!
