Re: vote incentive, perhaps it's Esra who should consider delegating Quentin is too far gone for this world.

Quentin looks soooo tired. Go take a nap, dude. Give your brain time to recharge.
Also, I just noticed you're matching your speech bubbles to the environment/lighting. And that's pretty neat.

Seriously like, this is wayyyyyy past the point that you're doing negative productivity by staying awake. SLEEP AND WORK MORE AFTER YOU SLEEP.

I do accept as true with all of the ideas you've presented in your post.
They're very convincing and will definitely work.
Still, the posts are too quick for beginners.
Could you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time?
Thank you for the post.

Hmmmm, Quentin and Esra kind of seem to be workaholics in different ways :' D
Also side note- the lighting and such on this page is just so unusually ambient?? It's like...a really cool half-weary, half-serene mood that's really nice to look at.

I agree entirely on the ambience of Quentin's office! This whole scene, from the first page a couple of weeks ago, has been so delicately coloured. The lighting in Esra's office was lovely as well, with that pale, cool sunlight streaming in. It's just been so subtle and tranquil.
The lighting of the last chapter was fantastic, and I particularly enjoyed it during the facestealer scenario, but I think it's even better now. Apparently that's possible, though it always surprises me when things can upgrade from perfect to perfect version 2.0. :)

Thats....honestly a pretty accurate description. xD
and GOSH thank you both!! I've been working really hard on trying new things with colouring so this means a ton!!
Comment by The Wing
Aw, another paper ball to add to the collection. :( It suddenly struck me how much pressure Quentin must be feeling at the age of twenty-three and already head of the Order. And I don't know how he got there in the first place, but whether it was luck, birthright, or genius (though I'm slightly inclined toward birthright given that his name is literally Agorath), he has way too much on his shoulders. I wonder if he feels constantly patronised by his own age and lack of experience and tries to compensate by working himself to death.
There are some things you feel like you'd know - if you were any older, wiser, or smarter. It can drive you crazy if that really gets to you. Every moment you have to suffer being unable to solve a problem is a moment of intense self-disappointment. I know some people like that, and I hope Quentin isn't one of them. :(
At least Esra seems to understand. Or at least respect his need for time and singular focus.

Also holy mackerel the hair is unbelievably good this chapter. LOOK AT ESRA'S HAIR! I see why he straightens it now. Imagine running your hand through THAT silk.

I sometimes slip into an old "capitalize all nouns" habit that I got into while I was trying to teach myself German.
posted at 1:23am on October 19th, 2017
All that's left is to italicise the proper nouns and misspell a few words every now and then and you've become an 18th century English writer, Reynard. :D

I'm really starting to get a feel for just how YOUNG Quentin really is. This page makes him feel... vulnerable.

I can't get over how goooooddddd the colours are like
Catch me writing this compliment on every page of the comic like your colouring just gets better and better and I love it so much ;O;
(Also RIP Quentin, but also #relatable)

You specifically said Esra wasn't tapping on the lock! What gives? Have the commenters added a new twist to Esra's ritual? (Esra's miscast penalty - any mistake in the online comments section about you becomes canon.)
posted at 1:07am on October 20th, 2017
Some of the doors in this place seem to have a different sort of locking/unlocking or opening/closing mechanism, something like a hand-recognition panel: http://runewriters.com/index.php?c=98
I don't think this is the same room as the one on page 3.2 because it and the door look smaller and the furniture are all in different places, but I think the panel looks quite similar. There seems to be a small ritual on it but I'm not going to make too many assumptions about how it works. :P
posted at 2:56am on October 20th, 2017
Nah, ocd rituals changing based on context is actually a thing that happens in real life! some people have rituals that are consistent in a very recognisable way, and other people have rituals that seem weirdly inconsistent to an onlooker, or have a lot of contingencies ("do X, unless Y, in which case do Z")
so he is tapping the mechanism here (there's not really anything to lock, perse), but nothing's changed! Good catch, though. :>
posted at 10:15pm on October 22nd, 2017
Wait, so it's not a hand-recognition panel? Shoot!
posted at 2:37am on October 23rd, 2017
It is, more or less! You open it by putting your hand onto it, like in the page you referenced. My comment was in response to redscarf's questions. x3
posted at 8:49am on October 23rd, 2017
Ohhhh, so you don't have to interact with it to close the door? I think I get it! Here I thought the tapping was supposed to close it, but now I see. Esra's just adding his own personal touch to the mechanism which doesn't actually do anything. 'XD I thought I had seriously goofed and misread an entire scene, but I suppose I only partially goofed.
I should have taken note of the fact that the device isn't glowing in the last panel, so it probably isn't activating.
Esra: *tap tap tap*
Panel: 'Sorry, I didn't catch that. Please try again.'
