I’m baaaack! I will only be able to update once a week for the time being, but one update per week beats no updates. ^_^ Let’s get the story rolling! Keen readers may notice that Angdu says “sleepyhead” instead of “shleepyhead.” I have decided to remove the accent from the native shpeakers speakers. Why? Because… Continue reading 086
“Oumeh” is like “omg” or “wtf” and is very specific to one region, i.e. not a part of the standard Korean/Keolian vocabulary. Also, we have a new voting image for TWC! It’s of everyone’s favorite bear on stilts.
Oh hey, it’s Team Rocket these guys again! I ninja-updated the very first strip of this comic. The art’s still the same, but the text is completely different. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Power outage. Unfortunately for Adela, this trope failed to apply here. That bird on the branch is not the best thing I’ve drawn, but I feel its presence makes an impact with regards to timing. Comics are a (mostly) stationary medium, yet the stories told through it happen over a span of time. I pay… Continue reading 089

A few things that were very clear in the first edition became ambiguous in this one — e.g. did Lushaka mean to do this? The ambiguity is unintentional, but in retrospect, I’d say it… Continue reading 090
Surprise early update! Multiple significant changes for all of the characters in this chapter. Moving is a lot of work even when you have the internet to look for new places, trucks to carry your stuff, etc. It’s a lot harder for these people…
Surprise bonus update! The previous episode cut off at a less than ideal point, and I didn’t want to wait for a whole week before moving on. Poor Ethan got snub’d… We have a new voting bonus picture at TopWebComics, by the way. Check it out here, and give HoK a vote in the process!
Angdu can sew with a good ol’ needle as well, but magicking it up with flax stalks (I think that’s what she’s using here) is faster. This is a highly specialized type of suyori magic. Danbi wouldn’t be able to do it, and I don’t think Master is particularly adept at it, either. Angdu is… Continue reading 093
And another chapter has been completed! Next week’s an intermission containing some world info, and chapter 10 will begin on March 24. Feel free to stalk me on Twitter/ tumblr in the meantime; if everything goes well, I’ll have an illustration or two to post during the break.
