Weird last panel is... A bit weird... Guess that's what happens when I go so many pages just reusing old panels.

Also, finished another Cinematic Replay in Dissidia~
I don't really have much to else say today, so go ahead and check it out;

OH! And in case you couldn't tell from my avatar, I'm pretty excited for King of Fighters XIII.

K' is back, bitches!

Wa! Haven't played KOF in ages! O:
I hope I get to play this one. Looks amazing!

Indeed, after playing the demo for XII I fell in love with the new gameplay and features, but XIII is adding so much that XII was missing.

Unfortunately it may be a long wait for it to come to consoles. D:

Poor Zeft D:
I went into WOE expecting him to be with Reina but he got totally shut down

Part of me feels bad for letting you down like that, but at the same time I'm glad the real pairing wasn't as obvious as I thought. XD

I initially planned to drag out the love triangle longer, but decided it would drive me nuts if I didn't resolve it early. I'm not a fan of long-lasting love triangles, haha. (And on top of that I felt it would give Zeft more room for character development if he had to get over his feelings for Reina, rather than obsess over her through half the comic.)

XD Well, I see your point~
It's not that I don't want Ixis to have Reina, it's just that you started the series in a way that made it seem like Zeft was going to be the main character and Ixis was gonna be the Simon to his Kamina to reference Gurren Lagann. (If you haven't seen Gurren Lagann I mean that Zeft looked like he was gonna be the big badass and Ixis would be his protege-ish young swab until he was forced to become a badass himself)
I actually like that Zeft's been hit hard, he's (like you said) gonna develop a lot more interestingly. > w < *EXCITEMENT BOILING*
XD And the fight between Ixis and Ixal blew my mind all over my screen. I spent like 2 hours scrubbing it all off.
It wasn't very big, but the flashiness of it all was crazy XD
I can't wait to see the Knights in action!

Well that's what I was shootin' for. :D
I wanted to lull the reader into thinking Zeft was this perfect knight who'd play star of the story and get the princess, only for things to switch around very quickly. I'm relieved I managed to do that. I always felt the Ixis/Reina pairing was too obvious too soon. (Which I'm sure it is for some, haha.)

As for the fight, well... Hah... Let's just say if you liked that fight, you're gonna go nuts by the end of the Passion chapter.
And yesh, all the knights will have their moments to shine.

Well you definitely fooled me :P
I guess another reason the Ixis/Reina pairing caught me off guard was that Ixis looks so young XD
I had no idea he was 14 until I did the math during his fight with Ixal > ^ <
Hurr durr.... *shot*

Actually, come to think of it, I think EVERYTHING that's happened so far in WOE has come as a complete surprise to me
0 ^ 0
I totally misinterpreted the description before I started reading:

"Set in the fictonal world of Chrona, "Wings Over Ethereal" is a twisting tale of Love and Hate...
Two Kingdoms, inches away from erupting in war...
A Knight who's inner demon seeks to destroy what he holds dear...
A sibling rivalry the likes of which the world has never seen...
Yet they are all blind to the true darkness that awaits them all...

The fate of these two Kingdoms rests in the forbidden Love between a Human...
And an Angel..."

I didn't realize Ethereal was the other Kingdom, I thought it was like another world from the description of the sky and the Ethereans :P
So I thought there would be another Kingdom in the mix XD
I also didn't realize that the "angel" was Ixis or at least some other Etherean we haven't met yet :P
But it's clever writing. The description and the font are what hooked me in the first place ^^
Rereading it now, I understand each part of it (except for maybe the darkness awaiting them all) but I just can't feel a bit sad that there's not quite as much going on as I had originally thought.

I guess it IS pretty early and there's those cloaked figures and the two crossing that frozen lake >w>

Yeah, don't worry. There's more to the story than a simple Human Etherean War.
(After all, my writing is very influenced by Square. I don't think I've ever written a story that didn't take twists and turns all over the place, haha)

We've barely touched the tip of the iceberg so far. Honestly everything that's happened so far has simply been getting to know the characters and FORESHADOWING FORESHADOWING FORESHADOWING.

The real core of the story won't be revealed until after the timeskip, which will be well after the Passion chapter. So there's still a lot more to be revealed.

The description in general is meant to be vague of course. In fact, the last three lines may end up having a meaning you didn't expect in the long run, so we'll see how things go in due time. ;3

And for the record, Ixis is actually 13 going on 14 currently... I hope I didn't make a mistake somewhere that mentioned him being older. D:

I keep forgetting that this is only Chapter 2.... HNNNGGG!!!

And I actually wasn't expecting a timeskip at ALL O.O
*prepares mind to be blown*

Glad to hear you're so excited. Now I just hope I can get updates done faster than I did through 2010. XD
