*flails even harder*
I can’t even. But yes. He didn’t kill her.
AFC meeting? I brought cupcakes…!
I’ll sit here with you while i cry and knit my blanket….
i’ve got enough pillows and chocolate for everyone.
Of course he couldn’t kill her. She’s an adorable little bloodthirsty demon wolf, even when rampaging. Though really, we know she knows Feral knows that she doesn’t really blame Feral for what happened to her parents. So she really wasn’t rampaging and all crazy there, as was noted. And we know that Feral knows this too. She was just upset, and testing him. Because the situation sucks for her – “best friend murdered my family while possessed by his evil bestie whose soul is locked inside him and occasionally takes over”, and all. My interpretation of the last panel is Feral being all like “God#@$!$# Mal, you’re the reason why we can’t have nice things”, regarding the general state of his life.
That was very wise. Sits in AFC corner hugging chocolate smelling lazer cats.
The feels are strong with this one. I know I’m late to the party so I brought churros, a truck full of Wii U’s and a splatoon game for everyone
XD Just so you know I enjoyed your entire comment. lol It was just great. :D
I’m new in the comment section, can I join the AFC? I’ll have to pick up all the pieces of my broken heart after T.T I brought ice cream!
Anyone can join, all you need to do is comment. *curls into ball* this literally has me crying tears of sadness for the situation, joy for the sparing of Meela’s life, anger cause I hate Mal for ruining their relationship, and turmoil cause we are nearing the end of the comic. The writers are TOO amazing! Now wait for next Friday!!! *pulls out sugar free homemade peanut butter cups*
Here I am, sitting in my tree, and what the hell do you mean end of the comic?
This is the last chapter *tears*
What is AFC?
Alliance of the Corner of the Feels
Well we definitely have plenty of feels. *cries in the corner* it’s so sad and sweet and how can a comic have this many feels at once T.T
I second that.
-sets up residence in the ACF- this is my home, I just have never known it.
I just can’t handle these feels..
Feral you were going to kill her! And here I thought you were just trying to communicate to her that you weren’t!
YES! Thank you guys for doing a double update! Can you imagine the torment of being stuck on the last page for a week? Aww, poor Meela and Feral, though..
Oh mah gosh you’re right X3 I would have cried so hard. Thank you oh wise and generous comic creators.
And it’s not even Christmas!
I actually want him to stab her though…it would’ve been funny to see his reaction when he finally calmed down.
Plus it would’ve added to the feels factor.
I don’t think it would have been funny, but as a lover of tragedy it would have been really nice.
Wehhhhh heh hehhh…
The build-up of emotional tension is making my heart ache. Thank you for the double update this week!
Also, question: Has Meela fainted, or is she turning her face away (resolving herself to fate)?
The latter. She’s giving in to whatever happens. (She’s also exhausted and dizzy, lol)
Yeeeeeah, that’s not clear. I wasn’t sure if she fainted or is looking away either.
It can be either way, really. She’s ready to pass out as well. Maybe I’ll go back and open her eyes slightly or something.
Oh. Well, that messes up the prediction I made to my friend. I thought she passed out and was going to have a dream-thing about Yuen, aka Feral.
Might look a bit less like she fainted if she had her mouth closed. That’s just me though!
Good man, Feral! You did the right thing!
That last panel though. It is absolutely beautiful. The agony in his posture…. These last two pages are incredibly gorgeous. All the tension and indecision. Perfectly illustrated.
Yay! Feral’s love for Meela is stronger than his hate for demons. This is good…. right? o_O
She’s better for him than she is bad because The Power of LOOOVE!
No quoting Harry Potter!
Omg I’ve missed so much I had to back track… Can’t belive its finally happened! What now??
Oh wow, look at them. They are both just absolutly destroyed. Meela in the last panel in the page before and Feral in the last panel here. Like, they have nothing now and they’ve lost so much and they tried to kill each other. Even after they are all they have left they are reduced to that becuase of grief (Meela) and what they’ve been forced to become (Feral).
As hard as it is, he really has overcome a lot of the condition he was in shortly after the sealing of Malkar. Man I still can’t get over the expressions on this page. Although getting a lot of that energy and feelings out, hopefully something good will turn out in the end. And good as in something happy, even if it is something where they part, it would be a much better than them dying. ;-;
Either way this comic really threw me in all kinds of emotional directions. xD
Excuse me while I sit alone managing my maternal hugging reflexes…. I need to go comfort something… that is once I’m done reinforcing the cracks in my heart.
I feel a need to hug them both!
The FEEEEEEEELZ they burn!!!!!!!!
Awwww! That picture is so sad but it just makes me so happy! Feral loves Meela after all!!! X3
Gaaaaaah!! Oh, poor babies!! Oh, Feral!! TT^TT That last panel makes me want to weep! I’m so glad for the double update! Can you imagine what our reactions would’ve been if you’d left it a week on that last page?
Gyaaah! I only wish Feral is tearing through his anger in that 2nd panel! Even more feels!!
Poor Mal. So close to getting his brother to turn into Darth Vader and be his new apprentice. But he still trapped in Anakin. At least it’s not Jar Jar. ;P
If she’d kept resisting him, it would have been easier, but when she looked up at him with those sad, tired eyes and just gave up after seeing the knife in his other hand, going limp and soft as he held her down, she looked just like Meela. If she kept fighting, he’d have been able to focus on killing the demon wolf, the threat.
Not the cub who had latched onto him in order to stay alive.
You got it ;)
That makes a lot of sense. Thank you for clarifying that up for us!
This makes me feel so much better. quq
I didn’t think of it like that! :’D//
Has anyone ever told you you are brilliant. That was just poetry right there. that understanding of what’s going on would put so many critics and analysts to shame. X3 hats off to you Fern, the universe now makes sense.
Yeah, drip your blood all over her. Way to go.
Also, tears or sweat?
I really love these two updates! I feel like they show a lot about each character!
He can’t kill her, and she’s given up.
That was intense. I guess an explanation is in order?
Thats somehow disappointing. But I cant explain why >.>
Is it ironic that I dreamed about being a werewolf last night? I was in a pack but no one had ever told me what we were… until I accidentally discovered everyone’s secret, and then the wolf queen commanded that I die, and so I got attacked, but I somehow managed to transform without knowing I could and escape (this was all part of some larger saga that I don’t remember). Sometime after I woke up I remembered that Strays updates today! Yay!
Thanks for the double update!
Ah, so heartbreaking! Poor babies, they have a lot of pain to sort through.
I love how the knife shines bright in the last page but grows dimmer as he loses his resolve. Really powerful imagery!
Thank you so much for the double update. It really helped the pace of the story. How long until Strays comes to an end? It’s coming close, isn’t it?
We’ve got about 10 more pages to go.
Thank you. I will enjoy each one.
What, just 10 pages left? I just discovered it (and binged it in a single session) and now it’s going to end? Nooooooo!
Great comic, by the way. I can’t wait for next week.
That’s exactly how I feel! I just happen to find it and enjoyed it so much I read the entire thing right away. Man, it just feels to soon for it to end. this is by far one of the best comics I have ever had the chance to read. I’ll be anxiously waiting for the next update!
Hear that? That’s the sound of my heart breaking.
I really, really love this comic. I always can’t wait until the next week and I get to see a new chapter. This web comic is amazing in both plot and graphic design. Brilliant job! I can’t wait to see what happens next… I hope they can work things out.
Wow. I just screamed “Ha, now you know what you hath done!” to my laptop screen.
Also, has anyone else gone back to the first time we saw these characters and seen how much the art has changed?
Thank you so much for the double update *sobs with joy*
How dare you even try, Feral
I kind of wanted him to stab her. I just love tragedy so much. And to see his reaction after would’ve been hella sad yo
Wow how much more can happen in ten more pages…it seems all this bad stuff has happened in like two or three days, just one big spiral into angst ridden feels
Tears… tears every where now. :'(
so you when the chapter is over done with these guys or just this comic and going to use then in another please say the second
