Well, we all saw this coming. Anyone else smell "Death Flags" in the air? Too early to be sure, let alone who they belong to, but I am catching a whiff. :?

Seventh panel, he’s saying “on honor of the Edenmire Guard,” should that be “on my honor”, or “on the honor”, or “in honor”?

Also, I like the flashback to Flora. It’s clear that he deeply regrets not doing something about her situation sooner, and the comparison shot is very good at showing a mindset of ‘I did nothing then, and I won’t make that mistake twice.”

"O-or... ..I.. bite you." (;_;) :maeve: :heart: The cuteness.. It's dangerous...

Also, I will partially retract what I said about Kei on the last page. He seems to feel at least a tinge of regret over what happened with Flora... Though I still don't think he fully understands why she feels the way she does about him.

And yes, "On my honor". Unless he's just bad at words right now. :P

Good for you, Kei. Resolve this crisis immediately.

Or... she'll... bite you.

Baby steps.
Though i am now not sure Kei will survive the chapter though... what is better for redemption than some heroic death?

Is it just me or is this Flora flashback a redraw from one of the earlier pages or something?

There's a reason there's a TV Trope called "Redemption Equals Death."

Elemental Templar, step on up to collect your bets!
Elemental Templar wrote: Mon Aug 29, 2022 11:53 pm Who want's to bet that we're going to see a flashback of Kei with a kitten Flora, in the next page or two? Honestly apart from his honor/duty as a guard captain, I can see Kei going out of his way to help her as a personal redemption for giving up on his relationship with Flora.
Hmm. For some reason I was thrown off by Maeve's line at first. Then I thought back a bit and had the impression that this is the most we've ever heard her speak at once. Then I went back and checked and (surprise surprise) turns out I forgot about her comforting Flora way back when*, which is the only other time she doesn't speak monosyllabically. I think that sets off the urgency of the present situation rather well, she's clearly very perceptive but also far too scared and worried right now to make use of that.

[* Edit: Oh, that's right, that was also before she watched her mother nearly get blown up two days ago and who's now been violently taken away from their home – that would do wonders for a small child's psyche!]

This plot thread could go almost anywhere in all honesty. Almost nothing that Kei does or doesn't find out will be tangential to the outcome of the rest of this chapter, similar to what Tom mentioned about there being no way to address the Adira situation as part of the main story when he stuck them in last chapter's epilogue. What happens with this once the main cast arrives back in Edinmire will be something to deal with after the ticking time bombs in the estate. "Sufficient unto the day chapter is the evil thereof" and so forth. Don't know that this necessarily raises death flags but it's possible I may just be ignorant of general tropes.

Now I'm interested in what point he was at with Flora when that comparison shot was taken. The neglect? Hunting? Before that when he let her down in some smaller but significant way?

By the way she looked, I'd wager she went to him for protection, or some such, and he refused; probably due to some job he was given. If memory serves, Kei was the one hunting her in the end, and if she went to him for help before that... He might realize that he chose duty over a childhood friend. Or maybe he thinks of his duty differently than he did back then.

Many ways this can go.

Sorry for taking so long. My computer was broken.

But in any case... Geh! My heart!
Maeve is so cute, they're thinking of renaming the ability known as Cute Charm, so it becomes "Maeve Charm."
