Ok, that's a shock. Oh man those scars look bad. And I see a horn broke part-way. She must have gone through hell when The Kingdom was destroyed. The part of Arua's essence which was used to create her kept her alive...probably barely, but couldn't heal all the damage.

She looks very sad to see the two of them. Like she knows Arua never wanted to see her ever again. Is she sorry that she survived the destruction of The Kingdom? Was she hoping that badly that she would die for all she had done? I was hoping for a redeemed Xura, are we about to see that?

I was about to say "Panel 4 poster" but now that I look at the background I see that The Archon just caused chaos to erupt. So much for low-key existence. Magical wings and a magical glowing sword are about to make the rounds of gossip. So much for not causing any trouble, like the dwarf driver asked her.

This is an awesome update Lacking, and I cannot express how sorry I am that you had such a horrible week trying to put it together. Thank you for these pages, and for all the hard work that you put in to the story this past year. This page is the best gift I could have wanted to start the new year. Do you need any financial help getting things put back together?

***Small edit: when I saw the "Shadow" in the last page of the previous update, it did remind me of Xura's sound effect text but I never expected her. I was wondering if there would be some other dark manifestation, possibly from our mysterious Orb collector...who I just had a very interesting thought concerning. Please not connected to Xura. I want her to be completely reformed. ***

Things are working out. I'm currently looking at two possible paths to financial stability but that is just a life issue.

Good to hear the color thing work. I have tried to establish a color association with my characters from the very beginning of Gratz. Good to know it pays off.

I'm glad you enjoyed this! Makes the work worth wile.

Re: the page title: yes, Xura was set loose, from the noose, that kept her hangin' around....

Wow, what a shock! Not what i was expecting but I'm actually glad to see Xura. Last time she had a look on her face like she had felt something or thought something that she couldn't quite grasp. Her shattered look here makes me think she hasn't figured it out yet. Perhaps she need some Light in her life.

Aaaw, Xura looks so sad! I wish I could give her a hug. She could have easily avoided the two if she really wanted, as Arua is pretty noticeable in a crowd, but it looks like she wants to talk to Arua instead.

Also, I want to theorize that Xura decided to sneak into the temple before it was zapped away, but her disheveled appearance tells a different story. Exposition time?
