5 pages this week!
now for the big revelation you’ve all been waiting for! the word i asked you to look for in lumi’s story was:

hrimfaxi!

on page 2.11, sindri accuses lumi of killing her first familiar, suul, in the same way that he killed his familiar hrimfaxi. on page 2.46, the name of sindri’s familiar is revealed. a few people who were paying close attention and had good memories remembered this and put two and two together ;D good job guys!

fun facts: “hrimfaxi” is the name of night’s horse in norse legend, while skinfaxi (the name of sisu’s horse) was the name of day’s horse. “hrim” means “frost”, and “faxi” means “mane”. for some reason, there’s also a sun god with two horses, arvakr and allsvin. i chose “arvakr” for simo’s horse because it means something along the lines of “early waker”, i believe, which corresponds better to the idea of dawn.

hell if i know how you pronounce hrimfaxi though.

@bluecrow: s-strike? hookeypookey? D: WHAT
@Pidgeoni: thank you! man, that strip is a good 3 years old now though i think...if everyone did want to marry lumi, she'd be a bit of a mary sue XD
@Guest: it was the word that would give away the plot and which of the princes lumi was married to.
@Lyco: thank youuuu~ i wish my sighs looked like that haha!
@st-valentines: chapter 2 is truly the chapter of lumi making dumb faces.
@Nyanko-tan: aww, i'm just happy you like it enough to want a hard copy of it! <3 thank you so much!
@Seshii: nope...lumi is a pretty unlucky person it seems!

@Archidork: i know right. dick move, witch king.
@bombsoverbordeaux: ahh, you'll have to wait and find out ;D haha yes though, the entire reason he married her was to try and get her to do his dirty work, but simo makes sure she doesn't give in.
@Aica: haha i dunno, she kind of sucks at being a witch...XD

28 Apr 2011 03:47 pm

Awesome Art, as always :)

Although, it was a slight disappointement, i have to say, that this finding wasnt part of the story:

wait, so why is hrimfaxi important?

28 Apr 2011 03:52 pm

Oh geez, that "sigh" typography is pure brilliance. HECK THIS WHOLE UPDATE WAS :D

28 Apr 2011 04:16 pm

i love all of the characters expressions especially Lumi's :3!

28 Apr 2011 05:05 pm

I wish I could buy your comic. I'm going to fave the sale page and buy it when I have the money. :)
I want every part of this story on my bookshelf it is so good!!!! ~~~ I love your comic and idea sooo much~!

28 Apr 2011 05:14 pm

Oh, I knew it! Poor Lumi! I was hoping she had married him before he went all "evil-overlord", and acctually had some happy married time. But in the end she was tricked :( so sad

28 Apr 2011 06:13 pm

Hrimfaxi?

Ho ho, I toootally missed that. XD Perhaps I should have reread too...

lulz Yummy updates! I shall ignore the fact that they'll slow down in time. *trying the optimism attitude. It's kind of scary*

28 Apr 2011 06:53 pm

WELL

In the people's defense, I have to say that Mr. Sindri didn't manage to finish his sentence, so all we got was Hrimfa-
But that doesn't help matters at aaalll. XD
I guess I just WISH Sindri would go back to his former gorgeous glory before the comic ends. Please? Pretty Please? He kind of looks like a Troll. (no offense to the real trolls)

Congrats on the 900! I bet it'll grow to 1000 soon. Love the update. A lot's finally explained. I was slower to piece things together than others. I only realized that when I found out that Sindri was banished. I must be more vigilant to catch these little things lol.

My god I love this comic <3 Eagerly awaiting purchasing book number 2!

About the cover: I know what you mean.I guess people will always judge the book by its cover.

29 Apr 2011 04:13 am

Dramatic! O_O; I'm gonna have to go back and read this chapter from the start now. ;)

29 Apr 2011 07:46 am

Poor poor Lumi! And what an awesome twist. I really like that the story was true :D

29 Apr 2011 01:34 pm

NO!! I WENT THRU THEM ALL!

29 Apr 2011 02:28 pm

I just read through everything. I really like the story, nice to see gritty witches with a bit of old folklore and such! Also just love your artwork. You've got a very distinct style.

29 Apr 2011 08:41 pm

That Sindiri, WHAT A JERK!

30 Apr 2011 05:08 pm

ahhh! that's the word? i cant believe it i was looking right at it aghhhh

but oh man sindri's her hubby! i was wondering how they met!

sooooooo, he wont let her free till she helps him get out of the cave thingy, but she's still obliged to feed him or he'll strangle her footsie off. does he ever try to have her do his dirty work for him? or does it just stick to simple wifey duties such as throwing a cauldron full of spiked soup in his cave once a decade or so?

Poor Lumi! She is not a disgrace!
Wonder why the king summoned her :<

01 May 2011 02:11 pm

D'oh!
It all makes sense now.


Can't wait to see what's in store for poor Lumi.

01 May 2011 05:56 pm

I really like the style. :3

I love, love, loooove Hemlock and your art! How long does it take? I mean, to make a page. I saw at your DeviantART that you do it first with inks and only and grays and the text on the computer. How log does this process take per page?

(sorry for any mistakes, my english is not that good =P)
