Howdy, fellow Draconiacs! RazorFox here.
So this is what happens when you push a Dragon to her very limit. Interesting…
Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can pull up “My Way” by Limp Bizkit.
Sorry this page is a little late. The water and lighting effects on this page took a while to put together, but I’m hugely satisfied with how it came out, especially in panels 2 and 3. Love the over and under effect there. And it still came out on Monday, so the comic’s perfect update streak remains unbroken!
But all this does come at a price. A bit of burnout is beginning to set in, and I could really use a break. With the current chapter in its final pages, it’s time once again for the Draconia Chronicles Annual for 2012! A couple inquiries have already come in, and a couple pieces are already done and/or underway. This is your chance to show off your Draconia Chronicles fan creations–both comics and pin-ups–while allowing me to take a well-earned break. We’ll make sure to pimp the hell out of your site, whether it’s for your webcomic, or DeviantArt or FurAffinity gallery, and you’ll also get a free copy of the forthcoming 2013 Draconia Chronicles Calendar. Need more information, including submission guidelines and deadlines? Just Email me and I will provide! Thanks in advance for your interest!
And with that, it’s time for me to go and enjoy the remainder of my Memorial Day weekend. My sincerest thanks to all the men and women of the United States armed forces who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
And speaking of ultimate sacrifices, will Briella have to give that herself? Or will Rula, Naisha, and Kenzi wish they hadn’t picked this fight? Find out next week!
Until then, my fellow Draconiacs, take care, and thanks so much for reading (and for your patience this week)!
And Briella pulls off a Shoop Da Whoop
She’s firin’ her lazor! ^o^
So close yet so far to see a dragon’s blood spill.
Let’s see what happen next……
Blood maybe…… Hehe
At least there’s water to help wash it off. See? I think of these things. ^__^
It’s funny, I didn’t care one way or the other at first…and now I find myself hoping she doesn’t end up dead. I blame the axe.
*Crosses fingers and hopes Briella survives to get the care package he sent* :X
Care package? o_O
Extra Strength pain killers, a bar of fancy scented soap, a cooler full of icepacks and some frosty beverages, directions to a nearby hot spring…and a little lady red doll. >)
I am hoping Briella lives, she got the raw in of the stick on this mission. I like her i hope my fav dragon does not die it would make me said :(. First time writing on this forum but been a fan for about 2 year now, and I got to say nice job. I am actually working on starting a comic book company once we get established might ask you to do a cover or two for us.
I might be available down the road. In the meantime, keep sending Briella your good vibes and let’s see if they help. ^__^
Yknow, its times like this I really dislike the tigers ^^;
sorry to say, just the fact that theyre about to kill her, a) when briella is clearly by herself at this point, b) shes essentially screwed against several enemies at once, especially in her visibly beaten condition.
and c) the tigers mostly want her dead because of thier petty greivances which they very much brought on themselves ^^;
chipped tooth – youre the idiot who jumped MOUTH FIRST at an enemy and expected to hit,
turn tiger against tiger – again, nothing to do with her, you’re all just oversexed overzealous bitches and got on someones nerves enough for them to snap.
how many tigers shes killed – you know NOTHING about this dragon, but dont even care, just that she gotta die
whew, that was quite the comment, sorry XD;
To be fair, Kenzi really was expecting there to be a solid dragon to plow into. Not just an illusionary one.
Well I think scales trump teeth in that situation, and even then theres the impact of tooth to solid object
If she knew that there was a chance that she would miss, she could have very easily altered her movements. Suddenly passing through what should have been a solid mass can really be a big surprise to just about anybody.
This is why you kill someone and dont talk trash to them… the tiger could already kill her here, but they didnt and now they gonna pay that XD
Briella is going to show us what i heard once: The true battle begins when you think it is already over. Give the tigers hell, Briella!!
Talk about a… “Panic Attack.” *Puts on sunglasses.*
Looks like the Tigers could each really use a pair of shades right now. ^__^
Darn. Now it shows up. Well now I’ve double-posted. Shoot.
Ah well. Still, excellent episode, Razor!
Good quote. It’s similar to another one that says that the most dangerous kind of animal is a wounded one.
Naisha couldn’t resist. She had a few things she wanted to get off her chest first, and she wanted to make sure they were heard. You’re right, though, in that it looks like it might cost them. We’ll see what happens… next week. ~__^
Sometimes a little panic can be a good thing, or bad if your the one causing the magic wielder to panic as their magic is unleashed uncontrolled and quite violently. I wonder if she learns a new trick in the aftermath?
I can’t vouch for whether Briella will learn a new trick, but I’m sure the Tigers are certainly hoping she doesn’t. ^__^
I have to agree, by talking to her and threatening all sorts of pain it gave her time to build up to panic and complete loss of magical control in the worst possible way, for them….
Odd considering she can’t understand a word they say. I mean what’s the point?
in combat, theres ALWAYS a chance to miss, especially when against magic using enemies, so the fact she didnt take that into account is jsut as bad
Like I said. That’s not the same as as having a solid mass suddenly prove to be anything but solid. It tends to catch people off guard and it difficult to adjust to. If an opponent simply moves, it’s easy to adjust to their movements, and brace oneself for whatever may happen next.
It’s evident that none of the tigers there have ever dealt with clones like that before. They didn’t even exhibit any prior knowledge of hearing about dragons with said technique. Without any experience or knowledge in the matter, there’s no possible way that any of them could have predicted the possibility that they would simply pass through.
And to their credit, when they came across the same situation again, none of them went charging face first. Save for Kess it served as only a minor distraction. They quickly managed to adapt and get right back on Briella’s tail, leading to a successful catch.
You two have this well covered. Sable, I see how the Tigers’ grievances are rather petty and how a lot of this isn’t Briella’s fault, but when these three in particular are frustrated at their inability to catch one lowly Dragon, their emotions are going to flare up, and mountains will be made out of molehills. After all, Briella herself mentions what separates the Dragons from the Tigers: the ability to keep your emotions from dictating your actions. Naisha, Rula, and Kenzi are exhibiting exactly that.
Crabby, your assessment of the attack that ultimately resulted in Kenzi’s busted “toof'” is very accurate. The trio were already airborne, thinking they were going to hit a solid Dragon. A scant fraction of a second elapsed between the time they would have hit Briella and the time that they plowed face-first into the floor. Virtually nonexistent reaction time coupled with an airborne trajectory dictated by gravity results in a situation that they could not realistically get out of. It was a one-way non-stop trip to Faceplant City, population: them. ^__^
Always look before you leap, or you’ll fall flat on you’re face. I mean it’s impossible to stop in midair… Unless you have wings.
I completely agree with you on this.
Tigers are just a bunch of bullies.
It’s easy to turn into one when you’re taller, more muscular, and more numerous than your victim. What good are those advantages if you don’t, you know, take advantage of them? ^__^;
And dammit, ya censored Rula’s nipples!
You can find her nippley goodness on Razor’s FurAffinity account.
no Panic she sasy and panic is writen all over brils face and there she plast of her emotions in a light plast 😀 but the next question is what did she hit and what will the tigers do *g*
Great work and lets see how this will end 🙂
Thanks! The Tigers might have finally bitten off more than they can chew, even as a team. Will they survive? Stay tuned… ~__^
Guyver’s right. Here’s the [link]. Enjoy! ^__^
look at how much trouble 1 dragon gives them if red and her team shows they would all be dead
I couldn’t help but think the same thing. If one chickensh*t light dragon can give 7 tigers so much trouble, how can they possibly fend off the rest of the flock?
Briella’s skillset doesn’t really seem to be combat oriented. At least not that we’ve seen so far. She focused a lot on evading detection until she could spot her objective. Unfortunately her objective was never there to begin with and she ended up being discovered. She couldn’t afford to be caught up in any lengthy battles being vastly outnumbered that she was. So she ran.
Now she has no choice to fight.
Crabby’s assessment of the Briella’s predicament is pretty spot-on. Virtually all of the things that Briella’s done have been the result of parlor tricks and luck. I wanted the Tigers to finally put her in a fight-or-flight situation where “flight” is no longer an option.
Shoulda just drowned the bitch.
FOR THA TOOF!
The whole toof–err, what’s LEFT of the toof–and nothing but the toof! >o<
So help you goddess?
They worship a goddess, right?
Correct. Tigers worship a goddess named Loessa. More about her and the Dragons’ pantheon of gods will be revealed over time.
Hope these pussy cat’s like going the rest of there lives blind because there’s no way they will be able to see again after looking point blank into this solar flare. Can’t hit what you can’t see, Kenzi swings blindly with the scythe, Brielly ducks and Naisha get’s hit fatality with it loosing her grip and Briella get’s away for good. I mean they have sucked so bad trying to get her this hole time it has to go down like that.
Interesting scenario. We’ll find out if you’re right soon enough. ^__^
How many cats does it takes to screw the lightbulb?
None. That’s a really bad place to get glass shards. *Rimshot*
Makes a great nightlight, though.
“This is a big one! PROTOOOOON CANNON!!!!”
Sorry, couldn’t resist XD
I don’t understand the reference, but I’d say it’s more like a photon cannon.
Hehe, you’re right in this case.
As far as references, I’m referring to Marvel vs Capcom 3 XD
Good call on using photons instead of protons. I’m a fan of croutons, myself. ^__^
I dunno. How many cats DOES it take to screw the light bulb?
Let’s wait and find out…
Thanks for saying it’s intrusting. I thought it was a awesome one worthy of Briella.
Flash oooohhh savior of the dragonverse!
LOL! Maybe Briella can earn the nickname “Flash Dragon.” ^__^
Her costume could be a trench coat.
Stand tall, and when others hold you down fight back and stand taller, Kick there asses bri and get home.
Also wonderful lighting work worth the wait tenfold
Thanks! Looks like people appreciate the results from an extra day of work. Really glad you like it! ^__^
I suppose this is another instance of the “Flameout” stress reaction, much like what happened with Fuegana during the volcano scene, when she essentially became a fire elemental?
I really do love the effects you put in these panels. 🙂
Haha! When Briella panics, it reminded me of Freemen’s Mind. XD
Can’t wait to see what happens next! I’ll drop you a line soon. :3
Thanks! I’m really pleased with how it came out. Really glad to hear you like it. ^__^
“Quiet on the set!”
Director Razorfox: “Light dragon, Khalira, Action!”
Rula: “Hey! This wasn’t–”
Naisha: “–in our contract!”
You might have something there, bud. ~__^
Odd. It didn’t post my comment.
Well anyway as I wanted to say Razor… most excellent episode.
“Now that’s what I call…”
*Puts on sunglasses.*
“A panic attack.”
This never happens when I put on sunglasses. v__v
All you need to do is watch the first four seasons of CSI entire back-to-back.
poor briella…. i wonder what is going to happen? :.(
Answers are forthcoming. Just a few more days, young grasshopper.
A few more?
Next Monday, June 4. That’s the next update. Mark it on your 2012 Draconia Chronicles Calendar. ^__^
I know it’s monday but I woudn’t call it just a few more days. ^_^’
Well. You could certainly say they *sunglasses* saw the light.
Seriously. What’s with all the CSI jokes recently?
Not sure. I’m just playing along.
The first think that come to mind was
WHAT THE FUCK BBBBBBBOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMM and there she flows in the air 😛
Nice work and a WTF was that too the Tigers ar stunned *g*
Well, that’s one way to make light of a bad situation. *ba-dum tsh!*
ACTIVATE OVERDRIVE! CHARGE THE SOLAR BEAM!
Not in a hurry, but when do the cast page finish just curious <(^_^<)
*sigh* One day… v__v;;;
Commence “Operation: Boomstick!”
First Fuegana and now Briella. Can all dragons become as powerful as the queen?
Probably, although the Queen usually kills them first. She’s a real Despot, you know.
Maybe, at least for a few moments.
That’s very illuminating. Thanks. ^__^
you know you have been watching too much dbz abridged when your first thought was. ‘well here we go, she just went ssj’ 😛
Well, we know where Kenzi, Rula, and Naisha aren’t: Safe. ^__^
Quick quastion, whats the Zhirite? As Bri also thinks about it, as well just before the tiger says Zhirite Scythe ( the weapon ) is it a god that they both worship? that be interesting.
A metal the tigers like to make their weapons out of, because proximity to it kills the dragons’ Magick. Thus taking away the Dragons’ main advantage.
Tiron’s got it. ^__^
Long time lurker (since I met Razor at intervention 2.5 years ago). Generally I’m rooting for the dragons and still am. This chase has been an amusing 20 weeks but I’m looking forward to the ending. As for the tigers.. I find them very prone to infighting and being overeager. If this turns out badly for most of them I can’t say much aside from “serves them right”.
I’m ready to move on to the next chapter, too, but I’m glad you’ve found the story enjoyable thus far. Hope to keep it going! ^o^
Song lyrics anyone?
“Put on those shades, and wave to yesterday, the sunlight hurts my eyes”.
“Blinded by the light. Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night.”
I still can’t unhear the lyrics as “Ripped off like a douchebag in the middle of the night.” o_O
HEY, THAT’S MY LINE (I was going to say that)!!!
“My Way” is a damn good track for this one indeed man, grat choice
Thanks! I rather like the part where the lyrics reference “your leadership.” It’s as if Briella were taking yet another dig at Lady Red, and yet, it also works as if Naisha were saying it about Kess, too.
Well… dang. Regular powerhouse, ain’t she?
