THE STORY AS IT WOULD'VE BEEN

@BurstThrough: I most certainly can. At least.. what I had planned.

And since I'm discontinuing, I might as well list out all the spoilers too~!
SO..

Altaire and his family are a matriarchal incubi/succubi clan. Princess Nuraj (second in line to the throne) is chosen by her mother to go to Alexis' county and take control of it so the incubi/succubi clan (The Adhir Matriarchy--let's just call it that) can use it as a stronghold to invade and take over Sinna (to collect the large star stone deposit that both powers and lies underneath the city)

Now Nuraj was assuming she would take control of Alexis' county by seducing the Count. (Nuraj, being a high level succubus, has the power of mind-controlling seductions, HOWEVER, it is most effective on people who are attracted to her in the first place.) So that is why Nuraj was in shock when she found out the Alexis' husband is supposed to be dead. ..She realizes the next morning.. that this might be her mother's method of testing Altaire. Why else would she order him to go along with Nuraj on a mission! (And also, though he's high-ranking by being Nuraj's son, Altaire has a habit of running away and avoiding any of his duties--that's why he was in Sinna before when he and Ezra first met!)

So then, knowing the what her mother thinks of Altaire (spineless/no loyalty), Nuraj knows this mission has to end up a success or else Altaire will probably be executed. (Nuraj's mother is the most ruthless character here.) She talks to Alt hoping to get him to seduce Alexis, but he doesn't want to do it because well.. "Ezra's mom"! And he also doesn't want to help in this plan at all. (Altaire has a lot of resentment towards his own lineage.. and himself as a result.) So Nuraj takes matters into her own hands, either using force or using Ezra as hostage to make Alexis let her take over. ..AND THEN.. I don't know what I was thinking, but I was planning to have a battle and then make the starstone explode and everyone die because they hit the vein and uh.. >___> you know.. that's the consequence of greed.

Besides having a really overambitious plot.. I felt the need I had to rush a lot of character development so I wouldn't stall the plot too much. (bleh.)

But yeah.. there's also a lot of complications with Incubus/Succubus.. because the ones here, they have to have sex to live, or else they go into berserk mode. So the kingdom usually keeps human slaves and.. yeah. The Demons usually look at humans as cattle for themselves.. It's a lot of sensitive subject matter perhaps. >_> (But also--that's why Alt resents his lineage.. and that's why he was scratching his arm in the first page.. and usually keeps a bandage on it. ..But I think I forgot to draw that in the last few morning pages--opps.) IT'S ALSO WHY HE DIDN'T WANT A BLOWJOB FROM EZRA! He didn't want to be triggered into wanting to have sex with him and have his instincts take over and well.. drain Ezra's soul/life energy (because that's what his family does! And it usually leads the victim to be in a coma for some time) Anyways, so addressing those things delicately would've been lengthy with a heavy plot. (I'm sorry I keep making excuses, I'm actually just thinking aloud in the comment lol)

But yeah! That's generally the whole plot I had. I was obviously hoping to have some mini plots with Coman and.. Alt and Ezra bonding or just sharing stories..

But yeah, I hope that gave you some closure at least!

Ohh :c Such a shame. I really liked the story. Well, never mind. I'll surely read your other comic.

Could you at lest say how the story was supposed to go?

Reply mydearbasil, September 13th, 2014, 10:42 pm

@Nocta: I knowww, I'm sorry! The story and subject matter would've taken volumes to dish out, haha.. But thank you!

Reply mydearbasil, September 13th, 2014, 11:20 pm

@mydearbasil: Actually, yknow.. wanting to kill them off at the end came into my mind around the time i was like 'weheheheheheh... this is too much'.. so I was like, 'AHA--I KNOW. I'LL KILL EVERYONE OFF AND RESTART IT IN A MODERN DAY UNIVERSE HAHA SUCCESS' so.. take that as you will.

@mydearbasil: /sigh/ I keep remembering trivia points I forget to mention..

IN THE MEANWHILE OF EVERYTHING.. Ezra works for the mobboss in Sinna, or anyone who has strong political power.. to gain money/build ties with people in favor of his mother.. (and vice versa) and support them and the like. His primarily weapon is a crossbow (that's why there were feathers in the Ch.3 cover--though he mainly does intel gathering and the like..) It's also why he's friends with Vincent, who is the nephew of Claudius, a boss of one of the mob families in Sinna. (though their relationship has been strained ever since the death of Vincent's father.)

ANYWAY CLEARLY THIS IS A STORY MEANT FOR BOOKS, NOT A COLLEGE KID'S PASTIME WEBCOMIC!

sorry to see you discontinuing, but understand also. Goodluck with your new endeavour.

Reply BurstThrough, September 14th, 2014, 8:44 pm

@mydearbasil: yeah it's mostly better that you pulled the plug and transferring to a more confortable zone.
Another question: Will bitch grandmother, asshole cousin and manners maid be in the new comic?

Reply mydearbasil, September 15th, 2014, 4:13 pm

@Poppy: Thank you! ;~; you've been with me since the very beginning pretty much.. so sorry, but thank you again <333;;;

Reply mydearbasil, September 15th, 2014, 4:15 pm

@BurstThrough: Agreed! ..HM.. I CAN SAY FOR CERTAIN, that bitch grandmother and asshole cousins have position within the story.. as for the maids.. I don't have a concrete position for them but they will probably show up.

Sorry to see this stop, but I will check out the new one. It's a hard thing to dive in to a comic without having the plot fully formed. five pages ahead sounds pretty stressful, haha. On the flip side, Malin and I have BREAKS planned for so far ahead that it's sort of painful not being able to just do it ALLLL NOOOOWWWWW. So maybe a happy medium is needed. Good luck with the new comic!

Reply mydearbasil, September 19th, 2014, 11:05 am

@EmmaVieceli: But that motivation is crucial! ..But yeah on one hand, having a longer plan can make you.. second guess and retweak things along the way. xD Kinda like.. "staring at it for too long".. on the other hand making comics out of it is always a surefire way to "break" and see it with new eyes. ..BUT THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
