Happy Friday! Not updating on Wednesdays for now feels so...Wrong.

There you have it- Why Felix cares so much about that damn hat! I bet y'all thought he was just being silly. No, he had a reason!;)

And with that the chapter draws to a close...Thank goodness! I can't believe it ended up at just over 40 pages. Holy crap!

~Lots~ of fanarty things, oh my gosh. A wall of text follows...

First up, Xianyu118 drew up Felix!

Click here!

Ohhh, I love this. The traditionalness and the shading work so well for the whole plague doctor outfit! And he looks hella badass. I swear all y'all draw him so much more badass than I could ever manage, like damn! I especially love the hat and mask, oh gosh. Perfect!

(One of Xianyu118's many comics is Pros Édra- an awesome post apocalyptic comic! Of course you knew this was the one I had to link, eh Trad?;) )

Then, Keltyzoid did like a million awesome three things!

First, they voiced a page of WA!

Listen here!

Oh gosh~
I think this is the first time anyones ever seriously done this; Zola has done it, but with full on silliness like with a voice changer because he wants to mess with me. And this is so good! Oh gosh. The Eva voice is so very perfect!! And Benny boy- Oh my god. HAH!! I adore this!

Kelty wasn't done, though- They then went to adorable sketches!
Felix and Jeff!
The felix one is from a while back but still

Oh my goodness- Felix is looking hella suave and handsome, and Jeff is just so cute! Both of them are truly lady killers here, hah. Felix will win them over with his handsome badassery, and Jeff with his puppy dog eyes. Just look at them eyes! Who could say no to that?? Both of these are just so perfect, I love this style!

(Keltyzoid of course does the amazing and adorable Nightlight!)

And lastly, Lilbluebox is at it again, this time she wrote up...a FANFIC?

Read it here!

Well, this is new!:D
We were talking about alternate universes, and I mentioned that I had one in mind where the apocalypse never happened (I should draw something up for this someday...), and she got an adorable idea: An AU where Anne is a marine biologist, and Benny boy is a diner boy. Adorable things happen, including an appearance by Jeff and Eva. I think the Jeff moments are my favorites, because holy shit!
Well, I won't spoil except to say it's mind numbingly adorable- Check it out!:D

Awesome chapter ender!

Great fan arts, btw!

Awww, thank you! I wanted to end things on a more sweet note, heh.:D

I know right? Oh gosh- You guys spoil me!

Excellent way to end a chapter.
I really like how simple but effective the techniques you used were. I love the last few panels where he's just smiling at his lucky hat.... Well done!
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 9:54 AM edit delete reply
Ah, thank you very much! I was hoping the simplicity would still work here!:D

That hat was really special :)
This is an awesome chapter! I love the way you did Felix's backstory <3

Lovely fan arts and fanfic :)
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 9:55 AM edit delete reply
It was special!;)
Aww, thank you! I'm so very glad you enjoyed it! I'm gonna miss drawing mini Felix.:D

Right? Oh my gosh! I'm spoiled!

Hahaha, I needed a softer sound effect, this was the first to come to mind.:D
rufiangel 12th Jun 2015, 5:22 AM edit delete reply
I... I am seeing a Luffy and Shanks moment XD <333 D'aww, so that's where the hat comes from~ how cute is that? :3 How lucky is Felix indeed? XD

Good job closing the chapter on such a cute note~ the comic is really going places! <3 :3
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 9:58 AM edit delete reply
Hahah! Gosh I'd forgotten all about that. Wow I haven't seen that since I was a youngster! Memories!
Hehehe, yup, there was a reason behind the hat after all!;D
He has his lucky moments, but back then pre-Axton he probably wasn't feelin' the luck. Hah!

Awww, thank you so much Rufi!<3 I'm glad it was cute, too, I tried~
Miaubol 12th Jun 2015, 5:45 AM edit delete reply
aaaah the memories.. :D

yes, it's too understandable why he cares about that "damn hat", I guess we all have at least one "sacred" item like that.
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 10:00 AM edit delete reply
Very fond memories!
Indeed! If it'd been just some replaceable hat, well, he wouldn't have panicked so much when it got taken. :D
Heh! Scared item. Yes, very true, perfect wording!
MadJak91 12th Jun 2015, 8:42 AM edit delete reply
Makes sense why the hat is so important and apparently needs its own pedestal :D
Is it me or are the colors better?
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 10:02 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha, well, s'just a desk, but yes, it's very important deserves a pedestal, hah!:D

Better? Awww, thank you! I used the same technique as always but...
Unless you mean the background hah- that always changes, because I always forget to make a palette for those colors, so they turn out a bit different every time.:D
MadJak91 12th Jun 2015, 10:44 AM edit delete reply
Hm, I feel like it is brighter somehow...
Only a feeling then :D
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 10:51 AM edit delete reply
Ah, that's totally possible though- they do end up brighter on some pages.:D
(In fact Zola said the same thing one day haha)
Cannon. 12th Jun 2015, 9:13 AM edit delete reply
And here I thought he just picked it up at Target or something ;)
Nice to get the inside scoop on The Hat.
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 10:11 AM edit delete reply
As it turns out, there was a history after all!:)

(Oh my god the cat in your avatar hahahahah)
Cannon. 12th Jun 2015, 8:54 PM edit delete reply
Hehe, I know right? For some reason it makes it even creepier looking. That's actually my cat though, I edited her in ;)
Seabiscuit 13th Jun 2015, 10:31 AM edit delete reply
HEHEHEH, I figured, I remember seeing your kitty! That's hilarious though hahah
MST3KFan 12th Jun 2015, 9:34 AM edit delete reply
And thus, the origin of Felix's hat comes to pass! XD

Awesome stuff as always. X3
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 10:11 AM edit delete reply
Hahah. And so the chapter had two origin stories, who know?;)

Thank you!:D
Stever 12th Jun 2015, 9:56 AM edit delete reply
Very nice reveal for the end of this chapter. It's always strange to see Felix without his trademark hat.

Are you going to jump into the next chapter on Monday?
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 10:12 AM edit delete reply
Thank you!:D
It IS strange. Holy crap, man, he looks practically bald without it. Drawing him without it feels wrong!

Yup- unless something bad happens, I'll be diving right in! :D

Clanjack Farlo
There's nothing silly about caring so much for your hat. But even I will grudgingly admit that this makes it a little more understandable. ;)
Awesome fan-art, as usual!
(Great chapter-ending! I like the happier note!)
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 10:22 AM edit delete reply
Heheheh, indeed! At least Felix has a reason for caring as much as he does!;)

Riight?! Oh man I love em so much!

(Ah, thank you!:D It's nice to have a happier ending at least sometimes, mwhahaha!)
Lilbluebox 12th Jun 2015, 11:06 AM edit delete reply
And with that, the chapter draws to a close...

It's a good spot for the end of a chapter. It's a cute flashback, I love the story it tells - it's always nice to find out why something's so important to a character, especially after a moment where they almost lose it - and Ashton giving his hat to Felix is a moment I'll remember for a very long time. It's just a very sweet moment and an excellent way to end a chapter and I love it.

I'm still hopelessly in love with your expressions, by the way. Pretty much all of them. I especially love the second line of panels. There's absolutely no dialogue, but you conveyed it all so well. It's beautiful.

D'aaaw, little Felix with his sweater and his new hat... and then older Felix with the robes but not wearing his hat! Adorable imagery there, and I love the swaparoo there.

Looking forward to monday! (And great hat sound effect in the second line. And pretty accurate too!)
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 12:22 PM edit delete reply
Awww, I'm glad you think so! I wanted to end this one on a more...softer note. I'm so very glad that was memorable for, you, too! It's so nice finally having gotten to draw that, now I'm free...:D

Heee! Thank you! Expressions are probably my most favorite part of drawing! I didn't get much chance to be overly creative here with them, but I'm so very glad you like them!
Heh...The second line of panels, yes! Oh man, that's one of the scenes that just floated in my head for soooo long, and so by far they were my most favorite part of this particular page. I'm so very glad you liked that!!:D

Hehehehe, thank you~ I'm glad you liked the swap, and I'm so very glad you're looking forward to the next chapter~
Lots of Eva at last

(Thanks! Hahah, it created the perfect soft 'plopping' I was looking for :D)

(And thank you again for the fic I adore it!!)
corruptedNPC 12th Jun 2015, 11:13 AM edit delete reply
I see, that hat was his 'treasure'.
I really like this page.
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 12:23 PM edit delete reply
His treasure indeed, yes! His most precious thing...
Thank you, I'm very glad you like it!:D
ProfEtheric 12th Jun 2015, 12:23 PM edit delete reply
Yes! High-five Seabiscuit! Way to tend the chapter! Them feels! :D
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 12:37 PM edit delete reply

What a rocky road it was! In the end, this chapter last exactly five months. Oh my god.:D
(Thank you~ I'm glad there was feels!>D)

It's nice he seems to really be encouraging Felix.
Nice place for a chapter break.
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 3:10 PM edit delete reply
A bit more lucky in the present day, at least! Eh, kind of? Hah.
He's a good guy to poor ol Felix.:D
Ah, thank you, I sure hoped so!
WindGuardian 12th Jun 2015, 5:38 PM edit delete reply
That hat :3

Great chapter!
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 8:26 PM edit delete reply
Hehehe, yep :D

Thank you!

Aww, this is so sweet.

Missed you, Sea. Figured I'd come back to read and comment at least. I'll avoid the forums and I won't be bringing back my comics here though.
Seabiscuit 12th Jun 2015, 8:28 PM edit delete reply
Hehe, thanks, glad you think so!

Awww! Missed you too, Dem! It's a shame you aren't bringing the comics back (Kyo can restore them!) but I'm glad you're still here!:D
demcleod 12th Jun 2015, 9:18 PM edit delete reply
I noticed you mentioned he can restore them. I might reconsider. We'll see. :)

The story behind the hat is revealed!
Amazing fan art, fan fiction etc. :D
Seabiscuit 13th Jun 2015, 10:05 PM edit delete reply
Yup- There was one after all!;D

I know! Eeee!:D
Skweeee 14th Jun 2015, 9:40 PM edit delete reply
Sea! Those last two panels are sequential art, story telling gold. Seriously, these two panels tell so much, with no words at all.

You sneak... you're way better at this than you let on.
Seabiscuit 14th Jun 2015, 11:10 PM edit delete reply
Awww, thank you so much, Skweeee! I'm so glad you liked that!:D
I was looking forward to getting to do this page for sooooo long, so I'm very glad I was able to pull it off!
