Finally a page! As many of you guessed there is a huge leap in time! and some of you even guessed the amount of time quite accurately! 

Please fix my grammar again if needed :)

Woah, it's been two years already? And while everyone discusses how Shadow and Blue are accepted or not accepted into the pack, I wonder how the war had been going these two years. :giggle: After all, that's a lot of time, especially considering the cliffhanger you left us with. ;)

Another thing I can't help noticing is that Blue takes off her bracelets, and her ear-ring is not there, either. That seems to be a sad gesture on its own, maybe Blue is so tired of being an outsider in the Lupine camp that she is ready to leave? :shrug: By the way, love the last panel, Shadow looks so slim compared to the muscular guy like Arcus. :D

Yes indeed, there is that too! :D ...we shall see whether Caligo stuck with the plan he said after the attack to the fort and whether that has helped them at all...

That is a good theory! Maybe she will explain herself a little, I mean Shadow too must notice that at some point... 
That is not Arcus actually, but maybe we will see him later on ;)  These are just random pack members. I understand the confusion though, considering last time we saw Arcus he was the one eyeing Shadow and Blue in a mean manner, besides Arcus himself hasn't been shown too many times in the comic either.

And almost a month later here's my comment! :|  Sorry about the super duper delay.

Damn, this page is so depressing. They spent two years with the pack and after all this time they have yet to accept Blue and the relationship Shadow has with her! D:  They were thinking he was just... using her as a pastime until he found better! Arcus is such a jerk!
Those two years they spent with the pack must have been so hard for them. :( 
I wonder why Blue is taking off her bracelets, it has some symbolic value I'm missing? Her sad expression is heartbreaking too.

Once again you did an amazing job with this page, the details on the fur are gorgeous, especially on the second panel (and congratulations for the hands too, they are always hard to draw but you nailed them). The poses and expressions are great too, and as always they convey perfectly well the characters' feelings and thoughts!
Can't wait for the next page :iconcheetahlaplz:

haha that's okay, I don't mind at all!
So much for the happiness for finally being able to be together!  :noes:
yeah pretty much, or that it was understandable to seek temporary company from her when being all alone without a pack, (so it was more of out of necessity than a actual love or anything) but now that he has 'a pack' he is suppose to just leave her.
also that is not actually Arcus, but random members of the great pack. We will see Arcus later on though. The mix up is understandable since we had Arcus eyeing them in a mean way last time and he hasn't been shown too much as a character either. 

maybe she will explain herself later on.. :D 

Thank you so much! :la:  I am pretty happy with how this page came out, but I do wish I had used more contrasted shading.

Hopefully I get it done soon, exams and getting sick are sort of slowing me down, plus all that Halloween stuff that was going on last month...

super duper late reply! :P

I wonder if they kept bashing on them for two years or still showed some acceptance to them. 2 years like that sounds like a really miserable situation.. at least they have each other :|   I also wonder what Caligo is up to, since he said he needed Blue's help.
My bad, now I see the fur color is indeed different! :D That bit of "golden-brownish" fur tricked me!

I believe it's because she's fed up with everything and wants to start anew, far from both Lupines and Leonines. Those bracelets are part of her old life, and she's putting them away.

*sigh* Prejudice is still strong with this one.
On the other hand... it was to be expected that even two years later the other lupines wouldnt make it easy for a pair like Shadow and Blue to be accepted as such.

Poor duo.  I bet it hurts Blue even more than Shadow though knowing he gets such treatment because he likes her.  And while I'd like to say I wish they were in a more enlightened age, this sort of malarkey still goes on way to much.

Also I'd love to see them having a nice life but this would be a really short comic if such happened soon >^.^<;

True :( 
Even though we supposedly live the more enlightened age currently, it is surprising how much of that sort of things still happen...

Whether they will have a nice life or not, the end of the comic is not that far, considering the last page was the start of the epilogue for the comic.  :) 
I suppose my comic could be considered quite short, considering how long online comics tend to be.

Thank you, You summed it up pretty well there :) 
Sort of relating tho that, I find it odd that in this overpopulated world (the real world) not being able to have a children is still used as an argument against the acceptability of certain relationships...
And ofc there's the fact that even the most 'normal' couples can find themselves in a situation where they cannot have children, and they are rarely judged for that. 

HA! You noticed those things, Yay! :D Shadow is trying his best to be a contributing pack member and then they say those things about him... 
Also, We shall hear later why Blue took them off ;)

People will always grasps for arguments to push their
own ideologies. And quite frankly, I think they just want
to justify their own standing somehow, even if there is
no senseful justification.

If being nice does not work, a punch in the gut might.

Just like the long-past American Indians, where the general consensus was that NOT having offspring was seen as selfish. Definitely what those Lupines really mean by "unnatural relationship". What a shallow reason to discard a relationship, at least from our modern-day perspective...

Though I haven't commented on this in a while, this has proven a great story in the course of it's production, and I look forward to seeing it's ending very soon. Grammar is just fine, and, as always, superb job on the artwork!

 I suppose in modern days you could think of the exact opposite as selfish.. with the overpopulation problem and all...
They may also refer to the fact they are different races (in our world such things have been done as well) or maybe both! I doubt they have definite knowledge of whether different race couples can have children, but it would be easy for them to assume they cannot. None the less, shallow reason indeed.. too bad you can see people discarding relationships using that as an argument even in the modern day... 

Thanks for checking the grammar and thank you sooo much! :blush: It was nice to hear you are still reading this comic!  :meow:

All my comments on how war tears people apart were sorely lacking in the "thinking of tomorrow" department.

I say this because of the mention of *ahem* an unnatural relationship.

Two years of that crap, huh? Poor Shadow and Blue...

:iconhunterbeinghunted:
HunterBeingHunted Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, I suppose the driving force is the mentality that some group is somehow lesser than an another, I think that kind of thinking allows people justify killing each other in a war and discriminate others in the time of peace. That kind of thinking is what also tears people apart. 

yeah.. I had a small intention to refer to certain modern day arguments with that phrase...
People seem to use that as an argument frequently these days, "unnatural" is something that one thinks as morally somehow wrong, but trying to define what is natural then... is a bit harder. Also, whether something being natural is a guideline between what is morally acceptable and what is not, is also questionable.

The other lupines are no better than Rex and his minions if they believe that the two cannot be together simply because they are different species. 
I do hope Blue and Shadow will find their happiness soon. ~

Love your comic btw. :D

I like to refer them as different races, and so they are referred in the comic too, but anyway!
 They certainly are at least as narrow minded as the leonines then, but perhaps genocide done by Rex's 'minions' is still worse... Though that won't make Shadow and Blue any happier. Lets hope not all of the lupines share the same narrow minded opinion. :(

Thank you so much! :heart:

Is The Creator what they name their God?
Reply
:iconhunterbeinghunted:
HunterBeingHunted Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
well "creator" is not really a specific name, Sometimes gods are not referred by their true name anyway (like in Christianity) So! it might be she has a name but it is not usually spoken out loud or then she simply lacks a proper name and is  just referred as the creator. 

but if you want o know my thoughts behind it.... I have no name for her in the story and, I was thinking that she would actually lack a proper name and "The creator" would simply be the way to refer to her. I found it fitting that lupines would not name their god and her 'true name' would be unknown (or she might even lack one completely), and lacking a name is even more fitting for her because their creator is considered a shapeshifter, so she'd even lack  'a true form', However, despite of the latter the creator is referred as a 'she' by the lupines. (this info was given in "the ask my characters" thing I uploaded some time ago, but that info is not necessary to know to read the story) :)

Even so, what is the tribe's problem? Blue even said she was raised by Lupine parents so shouldn't they be obligated to carry out their will? Also, they owe her for their victory! Doesn't that mean anything to them!?

:iconhunterbeinghunted:
HunterBeingHunted Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well it could be that they would be fine with her being in the pack.. only if she was not that close with Shadow... So it is less personally against her and more against the relationship Blue and Shadow are having. 

Exactly! but I guess we all know prejudice seems to always weigh more.

I expect the female talking to "remind" Shadow that all the other females (who I bet they believe he should be pursuing) have been after him and that he's being disrespectful to them by ignoring their affections/crushes for two years. What do you think of that?
Reply
:iconhunterbeinghunted:
HunterBeingHunted Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
heheh that could be part of what she is saying, or you could see it as her belittling what ever he is feeling for Blue, meaning she'd be thinking Blue was more of a comfort or necessity for him when he had lost everything and just needed someone not to go crazy, but nothing like a 'real love' so to speak.

I agree, I expect one of them to bring it up in the follow-ups. I can only imagine what Shadow's response should be.
