I must admit, that’s a pretty d’aw moment right there. She certainly is very bold, risking everything for the sake of being with him, too. Also, the tail armor is pretty cool. =D
All relationships should start with fighting to get it out of the way early.
Uh oh, bet this might have had a part in the slaying of Meela’s family. :c
Definitely. They must have found out that he was alive.
Yeah, most likely.. ;;
wlkfnuoervnoervniorgvnoi THE LOVE
SO MUCH LOVE SFHKJREAOIRUVHNOSJHV -flares-
Love Rollin’s tail armour in the next to last panel.
Yes, I was going to say that too! So clever.
Also, yeah, sign me up for the ‘D’awwwwwwwww club’ too. :D
Ah, and the truth unfolds! I’m beginning to realize why the whole thing with bounty hunters has been going down. Now the only question that remains is WHY Meela’s father was on a hit list. And why it might follow her…
Yep. The motive for their deaths clearly goes deeper than the simple act of them falling in love and hiding their relationship.
I have a feeling you and I are thinking very much along the same lines here…
I lovw Rollin’s Tail armor and that necklace thing around his neck, it’s hot!
I meant Love, my Mistake guys.
Wowza! Boy, this is giving me some wonderful thoughts as to just why poor little Meela’s family was… slaughtered… And a lot more then that.
I do notice Meela is a good mix between her parents <3
aaaw, so cute ;__; now I’m starting to understand why her family was killed. I’m very curious about Rollin and why he was a target. In my opinion it’s one of the most important clues in comic.
Did I said that I love cloud-like background in pannel four? It’s pretty amazing! *___*
they could have had it aaaaall~
rollin in the deeeeeep~
I see what you did there…
No worries, noble artist!
All kinds of mushy, fluffy and sweet are apprecitated by internet – kittens, love stories, furries – all kinds!
PS. I LOVE this page. Really. So much emotion! Tension easy to feel. I think it was entertaining to draw too, wasn’t it?
D’aww, they’re so cute together!
cute. definitely ad doctor and river song relationship here. the tail armor is cool.
Wait… Where’s the bracelet?
Good question. Maybe he doesn’t have it yet.
D’awwwe. I love those first few words.
“He never let her get him, but he never hurt her either.”
SO CUTE. Even an action-obsessed person like myself can appreciate the mush, not to mention it seems VERY pivotal in the plot. o:
Love it. <3
They remind me of Feral and Piper…
‘Cept that presumably this love is real, and the roles are reversed.
That was my first thought, too.
I am wondering if Meela only tells everything to the others because it won’t matter after… whatever will happen.
I mean, a few pages back she didn’t look very pleased to be reminded of her mother, but then she starts telling with happy exitement.
And when Holland first asked her, why the bounty hunters were after her family, she didn’t answer the question exactly. (But that may have been because she was ill of that poison back then.)
Hm, y’know, Meela never DID say her mother was dead, she just said she’d never met her. Her mother could possibly still be alive, maybe her mother is serching for her and Tannor, because she doesn’t know Tannor is dead yet.
Just a thought. ^^
Awww, that last panel is cute.
I kind of like how Meela’s father drops the trickster grin when he’s going in for the kiss. Maybe he’s more mellow than the previous page implied.
I also really love that stormy-clouds background you have for the second to last panel.
he has the most creeper-like face in the 2nd panel
D’awwww~ This is adorable.
I love their little story <3 I hope to hear more about them in the future!
They make a smashing couple. <3
zomfg… Rollin is so hot… zomfg… <3
And here we have the reason what they are killed for =/
Like Rollin’s tail.
~Hee hee, Rollin got her.~
Best. Love. Story. EVER.
Nooooooooooooo, I’ve only been reading for 4-5 hours! It can’t be over! like it too much!! Well, gots to wait a week DX ;__________;
Happened to me about a year ago! Been checking every other Friday since. Enjoy your new addiction, we’ve all got it.
CERTAINLY A BETTER LOVE STORY THAN TWILIGHT
Sorry to bring it to you, but it’s exactly like Twilight.
Um, you’ve obviously never read Twilight. This is a small pet peeve of mine, people saying “it’s like Twilight” in a knee-jerk reaction so I’m going to break out in a rant. I apologize if I offend you in the process.
The problem with Twilight’s romance was that both parties partook in possessive, manipulative behavior that bordered on abusive and the author treated it like it was okay, especially since they both had the immaturity of teenagers. Ex. Edward stalked Bella (watching her while she slept, most notably before she even liked him,) he kept things from her, he admits that he WANTS to kill her multiple times out of vampiric lust, he takes out her car battery as a means to control her in a later book, etc. Bella obsesses over him, there is literally no scene with Edward in it that doesn’t have her describing his appearance in purple prose, she starts having conniptions at the idea of his leaving, and she throws away all her friends, her family, and ultimately her human life just to be with this guy she’s all hot over (because, really, the prose leaves no other reason for her obsession other than that he’s gorgeous.)
Here’s what I see happening in this comic–Rollin is in trouble with the law for some reason, Jira wants to turn him in because she’s a bounty hunter, and no one is wanting to kill anyone. Over SEVERAL occasions she finds him and he eludes her, all times apparently with nonviolence as Meela says he never hurt her. Tension builds because he’s the one person she can’t catch, and for him it’s because she’s so doggone persistent. This could have happened for months, even years, and in that time their many encounters and the tension begins to develop into romantic feelings, probably ultimately culminating in the scene we see here. They are both mature, consenting adults, neither are vampires, neither want to kill the other, and the attraction may very well be based on more than looks.
Overall it is not, I grant you, a very healthy start to a relationship, but it’s NOT Twilight. Twilight was the “star-crossed lovers” angle that was attempted and fell into a dark place due to bad writing. This is “star-crossed lovers” classic.
I love you
Thanks for pointing that out.
Also I got a question:
Why do people always have to think of just of TWILIGHT when they read a love story? I mean, it’s not that the Twilight series would be the only love story in the world. There are many better examples for comparisons.
Think about it.
To the authors:
GOOD WORK, KEEP ON
It’s because there are just as many people loving Twilight as people disliking it, so it’s become popular and well known. Usually, not very good love stories don’t get very popular or well publicized, so not as many people know about them. EVERYONE knows what Twilight is so it’s sort of the universal bad story comparison. (I’m stating this out of personal opinion, not just repeating what I’ve been told, and I don’t mean any offense.)
Perfectly explained! Instead of saying it’s like twilight, use your facts. Personally, unless it’s so obvious, I don’t think it’s very polite either to compare stories/ideas such as this Jamb person
Actually this is nothing like twilight….at all. Strays is much more intriguing and a lot better story wise.
Hmm, her father is missing his good luck bracelet.
He might not have had it at that time.
I totally forgot about it o_o
Or maybe he wasn’t wearing it to keep it safe…?
OMG LOVE IT!!!!!
BEEN WAITING FOR THIS PAGE ALL WEEK
I WOUNDER IF THEY WERE FOUND OUT?
Rollin’s bedroom eyes… XD
I think those eyes are permanent. XDD
; _ ; <3
I badly want to know what Rollin did to get on that hit list in the first place.
just out of curiosity, why is Rolin wearing armor? I haven’t seen any other characters wearing armor. Does Rollin wear it for any specific reason other that design? (just curious. :D )
He lives a rough life, so armor is necessary. Some bounty hunters wear it too, but Feral prefers to have less cumbersome gear than others.
I especially like how the only armour he appears to be wearing is the tail bit. Got his priorities straight I see! Heh heh.
that’s so beautiful!
So romantic ! what happened to the FB like button under the comic ?
Okay Rollin’s gear makes me ask this question- Do these characters believe in the power of stones?
A lot of people are.. well, cynical of stones and how they work and everything like that, but I am a firm believer that stones really do aid us when we need them. It looks to me as though he’s got a garnet choker, and garnets on his gauntlets. From an info page(’cause I couldn’t remember this all) ” Garnets were worn to enhance bodily strength, endurance and vigor. It was widely believed to be extremely beneficial to wear a garnet when one had to exert oneself.” Also, “The garnet is also an ancient symbol of friendship. In the past, garnets have been exchanged between parting friends to symbolize their affection and to ensure that they meet again.”
So…. why does he wear the stones? To give him stamina? Or were they a gift from a friend? Or are they just fanciness to him? (also, woooooo sketchy…. “The stone causes people to be attracted to the wearer, which aids in business, as well as in personal success.” Am I looking too far into this?)
Nice symbolism behind them there, intentional or not!
This is very interesting to read, though I admit there is none of this intentionally implied in my choice of gems. It certainly fits, though! The gems do have a purpose, but what that is will remain to be seen ;)
Good to know! I look forward to see what you guys have planned for us ^^
