I half hear them saying "no, 'you are here' is over here."  :)

From the way they are acting in recent pages, I suspect that touching hands has a VERY different meaning for Lorois xD
And Beryl does seem annoyed (maybe jealous)?

He might get more out of that friendly gesture than he bargained for...

Also, I got a back story idea for you, leading to a twist; we have Star Trek which earliest alien species were adaptation of Elves into Vulcans and Orcs into Klingons, and we have Elves themselves which Tolkien evolved from Celtic and Norse mythologies (yes, they were present in both).

So, let's take a big jump, and say that thousands of years ago, a Loroi exploration ship (maybe?) found Earth, but for some reason was never able to make it back and report (engine failure, crash, you figure it).
There we have those advanced aliens on Earth, long lived compared to humans of the time (if there were Homo Sapiens yet, depending how far back).

They would have survived long enough to be acknowledged in myths, and possibly could have done some genetic engineering or even mixing with some humans.
In which case the modern Loroi are likely to find (have already found?) some common strands of DNA with themselves, and both species being biologically compatible (good old Half-Elves xD ).

In which case a fraction of the human population could be distantly related to the Loroi, as other species implied earlier.

You can even push that back story further using real facts xD :

- There is a medical condition giving blue skin to humans……

- There used to be a reference to 'Blue Blood' in English and 'Sang Bleu' in French, as well as similar in other European countries, associated with royalty.…

Yeeeah looks like this is up a bit early?

Also this looks awesome. I especially love the from-downwards lighting going on here, and how it colors the character's uniforms and faces.

And Beryl's expression is just...I'm pretty sure smug fits? :D

So happy you've begun posting regularly again. I started reading when the comic was somewhere in the 40's.

Yep, Beryl is definitely jealous. :D

Can't wait to read more.

It appeared to me that Beryl looked a bit jealous of Jardin shaking hands with Arrir Talon. I am glad you are updating your web comic again. I have enjoyed this comic quite a bit and hated to think it had come to an end.

I think this went up a tad too early ^^

Think of it as a preview. :D

How bad is it that I'm giddy every time I see an update for your work?  This can't be healthy.  :)
Considering how rarely he uploads, any health-effects are negligible Wink/Razz
