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:


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.

@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!

I knew i should have re-read the whole story from start!! Well, slow as i am i would probably missed it anyway... Btw strike! Time for the hookeypookey!!

April 28th, 2011, 3:47 pm

Awesome Art, as always :)

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


April 28th, 2011, 3:51 pm

wait, so why is hrimfaxi important?

April 28th, 2011, 3:52 pm

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

April 28th, 2011, 4:16 pm

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

April 28th, 2011, 5:05 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~!

April 28th, 2011, 5:14 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

April 28th, 2011, 6:13 pm


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*

April 28th, 2011, 6:53 pm


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!

April 29th, 2011, 2:01 am

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

April 29th, 2011, 4:13 am

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

April 29th, 2011, 7:46 am

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

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.

April 29th, 2011, 8:41 pm

That Sindiri, WHAT A JERK!

April 30th, 2011, 5:08 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?

May 1st, 2011, 1:46 am

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

May 1st, 2011, 2:11 pm

It all makes sense now.

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

May 1st, 2011, 5:56 pm

I really like the style. :3

May 4th, 2011, 1:41 pm

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)

Hello, dear author.
Firstly, I want to tell you that your comic is great. I love your draw-style. It's unique and atmospheric.
Also clothes is complitely amazing. I really wish to have all the dresses in my wardrobe xD.
Besides, the folclore spirit in the story fascinates. So the comic has it's salt)

Well, that's how he cought her... I'm wondering what kind of prison he has. He just can't go out of his cave? Sindri doesn't look like he is very suffering. I mean, if he REALLY does, he would thought out another way to make Lumi free him. So...can he just enjoy torturing her (because he like her? a little? please? XD)?
Does Lumi avange Sindri for his lie and that's why doesn't help him? He hurts her so much T___T. Can't she just do what he want and be free after all?
P.S. I. NEED. A. PAIRING XD. That's why I started to ship these two even there are no feelings between them accept hatred but... Love/hate relationship, that's how I'm rolling. And hating XDD
P.S.S. will there be any love lines in the story? I really hope there will be one with the heroine)
P.S.S.S. Sorry for my english, I tried x)
And the last. Tristan os ADORABLE *O*!
