@Twyll: hahaha! best reaction XD
@stupidarghs: awh, thank you ^^
@M3derp: it's what i was going for >w<
@Lyco: ohh, thank you! <3 that means a lot from you~
@ParadoxComic: don't be sad ;A;
@Alovera: sadly there's not gonna be much human form for him in the rest of this comic, mostly because i hate drawing it orz
@CrimsonPumpkin: everyone has such good reactions to this page XD
@Doodlebot117: actually, you're totally right. i used the word "thing" very deliberately. though, sindri is very selfish and self-centred, so it isn't so much "to make feel bad so he feels better", as he doesn't necessarily realize (or care) when he's being a dick.
@Pansito: haha it's funny how people used to hate sindri, now by the end of this chapter people love him!
@CandyTheUnicorn: ^^
@MaliceNation: so many feels!
@H.: welcome then! <3
@Leona-sama31: it makes me happy that i can get reactions like that XD
@DarkArtistSkye47: don't be sad! ;n;
@BrightLights: you're totally right actually. though sisu would actually at least talk to him, if he was allowed to. sindri is just meant to be...kind of pathetic right now, i guess?
@Ryo: is it sweet though? ;D and it's definitely not lovey-dovey, whatever it is.
@Wynne: all three of you are right (and sensible!). although the squealing is fun, i'm glad people can see it for what it is >_<
@Leanne: it's definitely not sweet, or romantic, and it's not my intention for it to be either. i think "it's complicated" sums it up best >w<'
@Perstephanie: the thing as well is that, this is 800 years later. while it was straight up abusive at the start, now it's more like two old people who fight all the time but can't bring themselves to get divorced.

Oh my god, My feels, my heart. I'm think my heart is broken right now q~~q

May 2nd, 2013, 4:59 pm

Ohhh my goodness! :O Sindri reveals a little about himself at last! This is getting terrifically good, Josceline :3

My feelings hurt ;__;

May 2nd, 2013, 5:04 pm

.

<3 Sindri why dont you turn back into your sexy 'human' form and show the compassion to set her free! When true love follows in hard times you will be reunited and have an unbreakable bond much stronger than any shackle!

May 2nd, 2013, 5:11 pm

OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
THIS.COMIC!! MY.HEART!!! MY.SINDRI!!!!
*squee*
XD

Now I'm gonna be the odd one out. I see everyone squealing about feelings and true wuv and such XD I'm just sitting her logically thinking "Well, it's true. She is the only thing he has left. That's not really putting Lumi on a pedestal or anything. He said 'thing', like his last possession or the last person he has left to make feel bad so he feels better. He doesn't want his only source of amusement, the last toy in his clutches to be gone and then he can't feel powerful over anyone." Though I freely admit I don't know Sindri's mind and he could just as well actually have positive, even romantic, feelings towards Lumi after all this time. Even if it's a form of Stockholm's Syndrome XD

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this comic for it's story line, imagination, and stunning style of art. I just have to be the logical monkey wrench in this squealing fangirl machine XD

I WAS SOOOO WAITING FOR THIS!!!! i mean, maybe we all knew it but I HAD TO SEE IT!!! MDSKVJNATMKIJ BAGDNDSK aw I love sindri <3 xD

May 2nd, 2013, 6:32 pm

to quote Twyll:

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH aaaaaaAAAAAAA AaaaA aaa a a a aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHh!!! *weeze* *pant*

My precious heart! IT HAS FEELS!

May 2nd, 2013, 6:38 pm

D: I was expecting it but it still shocked me. XD damn you sindri the feels!!! >.<

May 2nd, 2013, 7:25 pm

ppl is crying. (I've been here for a while but you can tell I'm a new fan, kinda).

WHY-

May 2nd, 2013, 7:33 pm

omfg!! what those words just struck me numb with feelings!!! (shoot i am just saying nonsense :P)

May 2nd, 2013, 11:31 pm

Wow, everyone got so emotional all of a sudden! It's pretty expected for Sindri to feel this way, actually! All of the other witches want him gone, the night things are pretty self-serving creatures and see no need to help him, Simo wants him completely out of existence entirely, Baba Yaga is disappointed in him. Not even Sisu can talk to him! Lumi is pretty much the only face he sees ever.
In conclusion: Sindri lives a pretty sucky life and prooobably deserves every last bit of it??

THIS. IS. SO. SWEEEEEEEEET ^^

And I'm happy that he finally said it. I had a feeling that both of them liked eachother.

Thank you for making such a perfect webcomic

Gotta say I'm with Doodlebot and BrightLights. Sindri has definitely grown to genuinely care for Lumi, but this is an extremely dysfunctional relationship here.

Don't get me wrong, I want him to grow and find redemption and become a good person who's worthy of a decent relationship with Lumi, but right now Sindri's still the dick who trapped her in an abusive relationship.

May 3rd, 2013, 12:57 am

Auuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww....

May 3rd, 2013, 1:12 am

I'm just gonna say... Lumi doesn't seem to find their relationship "sweet". I love this comic so, so hard... but it weirds me out to see abusive relationships called romantic.

May 3rd, 2013, 2:19 am

@Leanne:

I'm not so sure it's being quite called romantic. It doesn't seem as though either one of them is proud of the way they act around one another. Not to mention Sindri did kind of force her into marriage and people are trying to kill her now.

May 3rd, 2013, 6:10 am

Ha ha, yes, definitely. That is how they seem to be!

May 3rd, 2013, 3:01 pm

ew, Sindri, Lumi isn't a "thing"....

I say as I wipe the tears from my face

-furiously pounds the 'next' button-

Word, excellent update, I really love how this story was always so interesting on so many levels, and now this; it's depressing to read, but I feel like...I don't know, it's sad but real and very human of si drive, strangely! To be so dependant on someone like that.. I don't know what I'm saying :( Ibut either way, great as always, can't wait fer next update :'D

May 4th, 2013, 1:57 pm

EARRRGH FLAAAAAHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGG MYAAAAIIIIIIIIII ABLAHBLAH *other inhuman noises etc*

On one hand, this is kind of nice, hearing Sindri say that he actually cares for Lumi. But I deffinitly can see the point some of the other comments raised: Lumi and Sindri do not have a healthy relationship. They pretty much torment each other. It might be a bit more painful for Lumi, because being married to Sindri has changed her whole life (and not for the better). Likewise it is probably not tha nice for Sindri that the only person he still is in contact with pretty much despises him.
That said, I would really like to see this two somehow work on their relationship and maybe even become friends. Sindri might not be a nice guy, but I think he is not a totally lost cause and might still change for the better.

Oh God *sob* this is so amazing. ;_; I love your comic and your characters so much. <3

WOULD YOU JUST STOP

'She's the only thing I have left, so I'm going to keep her bound to me with the magic ring I tortured her with! This is a flawless idea!'

I mean, I see where he's coming from, I just don't find it romantic at all.

January 31st, 2014, 10:30 pm

D'awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Sindri and Lumi are just so adorable!
