Guess who's impatient to tell the story and go on with ch2? Meeeeee!

I had a longer description typed up before CF went down earlier. So, I'm gonna try and remember what I had.

You can sort of tell, maybe what Yolekev is doing is a sort of healing thing. If left on its own her arm would be pretty messed up. That's a biggol gash. He's doing the equivalent of stitching it back together.

Hey, who, what, where? Matter 'pulling' is effectively borrowing energy and mass from somewhere on one's body. It's displacement only and not creation of something that doesn't exist. A lot can be done in displacement, but whatever you're pulling from is automatically weaker than the rest of you because of that. A matter break is when one fails to sustain that pull effectively, the bond between the energy borrowed and the user is severed and so now the matter that was being pulled has no one to return to. It de-stabilizes and breaks. The result is a violent loss of energy from whatever area the matter and energy were borrowed from to begin with.

*That's your info dump for the day

Thank you! :D I don't like to infodump on my artist comments, this was one of the few times I've decided to cave and do something, so I'm glad it wasn't too much lol.

Poor Ryae... you can tell she's in absolute pain here. Well done, Spell!

And thank you for the clarification on where the matter comes from! :)

Thank you! I was really worried that I didn't capture the 'ouch' well enough so I'm glad it comes off as excruciating!(Well that sounds odd...)

Yayy! I don't like to infodump but I figured this was as good a time as any for that little tidbit, it's re-iterated in comic later but until I move it to the wiki...might as well share it here. :)
But yep, that's how the matter displacement works/its origins.

Yeah D: there's a lot of pain to be had in badly executed drills...(just think, there's more where that came from!)

Thank you for stopping by! :D

With what you said about matter "pulling", does that mean that currently Ryae's arm is less dense than it was prior to starting the drill due to what she borrowed not returning? (hope that makes sense)

Also, is the healing encouraging her body to speed up it's own healing process to replace the matter that was lost? Or is the healing more like transferring matter between people to replace what is lost?

Also, will Ryae have a scar when her arm is all healed up?

This is a great page by the way (really all of your pages are!). Sorry about all the questions; what you wrote about matter pulling is really interesting! :)

Ahhh, very nice analysis, Zartala! :) I don't mind the questions either! I unfortunately can't answer all of them though.(Silly spoilers ruining things)

Yes to the first portion of your comment - since there's nothing there, in her case she 'pulled' a solid hunk of arm(ow, right?) to manipulate the matter for, and so that's what's now missing. So in her particular case it's less of a density issue.

Thank you! :D This page was a lot of fun to work on, as painful as it is for Ryae here.

Ooooo Spelledeg! The expression in the last panel is ephin' excellent!! Beautiful page. Very innovative way of showing the healing energy too.

I hear you with the impatience thing. I'm hitting a point in my comic where I am so excited about what's to come I could burst.

Thank you! I honestly was really worried that I wouldn't portray the pain intense enough. So I'm glad the expression conveys it well!

The healing energy/thing was another difficult thing I wasn't sure if I implied well. I'm really really glad it works! :)

Oh yesss, me too. Ch2 is a major pick-up-speed chapter and there's less 'LOOK AT THE WORLD...SPACE ELVES...JERK MAIN CHARACTER...WEIRD NAMES...WHAT GENDER IS ANYONE?' and a lot more 'oh by the way, there is crap going on and we've gotta deal with it'
That was a bit more than you asked for haha!

Spell! What have you done XD... now every time I see Yolekev's face now I think it's supposed to be funny XDD

No but really I LOVE that 3rd panel! You also did a great job conveying Ryae's pain! AND ANOTHER THING! Everything is so well thought out <3... I feel a part of this world!

So much pain. Evil, evil pain... that maybe could have been avoided if Ryae didn't get distracted >___>

Also I have to agree with Serpy. It's so hard to take Yolekev seriously anymore why you do dis Spell!!!

It was probably entirely avoidable, maybe. >> Maybe not.

WElll, he isn't a very serious character(or is he?). Who knows, something might happen?

Yikes, those are quite the consequences...I thought Ryae was very adept at this though? Or at least it seemed like she had been bragging about it before?

;) Very observant. They are kind of big consequences, but there's a distinct difference between a talent and a honed skill.

You're welcome! :D I try to avoid them but sometimes they help with things like this particular page.

Yolekev is a great instructor/Velai, he cares a huge amount about whoever is under his instruction. :)
