Rogue Skies: Round 3 pg 13 by falingard Rogue Skies: Round 3 pg 13 by falingard
My third round of Rogue skies :iconrogue-skies:, facing off TO THE DEATH against :iconbilious: ... has come to an end! And so has my participation in Rogue Skies, if you couldn't tell.

Previous Page

I urge you to go read Bilious's entry right away, and see this story from another point of view!

This has been a lot of fun, I made new friends, got to test my skills, but ultimately it took too much of my time, and my motivation was waning. I didn't want to just throw in the towel and forfeit, though. I wanted to go out with a bang! I wanted to make the LEAST DISAPPOINTING FORFEIT EVER. It was lucky that I ended up matched against Bilious. Since she and I have been friends for a while, it was easy to cook up something together, and hopefully we've created a round that will be remembered!

The only reason I was able to muster the will to complete this round at all, was because I knew it would be over afterwards, and the collaboration with Bili was a wicked cool experiment (one that couldn't really have happened if I had really been competing)! Congratulations to all RS contestants, your entries were and will continue to be an awesome read. Thank you to =wallabri and =Liamous, you two were great organizers, and in a less awesome tournament I might have given up much earlier :XD:

So what happens next? The answer is and always has been Pastry! With RS off my plate, I can get back to putting my full attention on it, which will be necessary soon as the current story arc comes to an end, and a new one starts. Breathing will be good too!

I guess this verbose tirade all comes down to: It was one hell of a ride! Thanks for reading. And keep reading! :D

Great work! I've been totally absorbed into this comic: i just went through all of it! I hope to see Riel on FP or maybe somewhere else, there were really many interesting characters in this story! :D

Most of the characters aren't mine, though :D
But thank you! :nod:

As for Riel, hmmm........ it could happen!

I find it brilliant that you both collaborated to make two different point of views on this round, though I find it sad that you didn't make it to the next round. Still, I'm holding on for a conclusion. :)

The emotions, expressions and pacing through this round you've done have been amazing. Bravo my dear!

It doesn't have much in common besides the presence of one particular character, but Flaky Pastry sort of takes place a several years later in a different setting :D

A beautifully executed forfeit!

;3; I demand cute fluffy art of Zin and Riel. Also, the "awwwwwww" panel will remain one of my top 5 fav panels of RS always xD.

Once again, great work, both artistically (the grey scale shading coupled with the select colors here and there) and from a story perspective. You and Bili really gave us quite the show!

I love how this comic just went from light to SRS BUSINESS seamlessly. In fact, I think the thing I enjoy most about your comics are how they are both incredibly entertaining and clever as well as "natural". The humour and dialogue and everything is great but never forced, if that makes sense.

I'm sorry to see you go, but good on you for doing it with style. OCTs can get pretty demanding after a while. Guess I'll just have to keep reading Flaky Pastry for more comic-y goodness! : )

I think it makes sense! But I can't say I do anything in particular to make it this way, I just put things down the way they come up in my head XD

I do love to entertain readers, that's why I preferred to go like this instead of just dropping out. And I hope you do continue to read Flaky Pastry! :)

Oooh, intense...

Best. Damn. Forfeit. In HISTORY. Talk about going out with a bang. I'm glad you and bili agreed to cook this up for us all...

I'll miss seeing your entries in the rest of the tournament, though. Still, I know exactly how you feel about having tournaments eating away all your time... I've finally escaped from one of two simultaneous tourneys, and I gotta say I'm nothing but relieved.

(By the way, where does this leave the Elves in Black as NPC's?)

Thanks! ^_^
Your entries were some of my favourite ones in the tournament :D It would have been fun BUT OH SO STRESSFUL to go up against you :XD:

Two simultaneous tourneys: DO NOT WANT D: ...but I suppose with Pastry duty maybe my situation was similar.

The Elves in Black! Well, they'll stick around and keep looking for a while. They hadn't found Zin yet, and now they continue to not find her, so their situation hasn't changed :D It would be awesome if they still showed up in later entries! People are certainly welcome to keep using them if they wish :)

While I deeply regret that we won't see any more of these from you, you certainly finished up with style. And I'm sure whatever else you cook up will also be entertaining. :-)

Bravo indeed! That's great that you turned this round into an entertaining wrap-up instead of just quitting. Now that's how to forfeit with style.

Also, does this mean we might eventually see Riel in FP? :D (That is, assuming he's still alive... No telling how far back this backstory is, I suppose!)

:iconfalingard:
falingard Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
Thanks! That is what I was going for :nod:

And perhaps! Since officially Zintiel has been missing from her home for 16 years, then it has to be less than that (though probably not much less)
