Drinking Buddies by DrMistyTang Drinking Buddies by DrMistyTang
Because I wanted to.
(But this also kind of an early birthday present for my besest friend, ~GrimReapette. I say "kind of" because I have an additional present for the actual day of her birth~)

I think I've finally accepted that if I were to do a comic in full color--even when it's pretty darn minimal like this--it's still going to take a damn long time to do it that way. But I guess since this is technically four pages, it didn't take -that- long to complete, all things considered. But still. :^/
Anyway, it was a lot of fun drawing these guys in a more conventional comic fashion. :nod:

After their duel, and working together for a while, (and probably after a few additional friendly brawls) Zephyr and Sfo are BFFs. :love: So, I drew them having a jolly time together~ And then you-know-who shows up and scares Sfo away.
I guess Zephyr went off drinking with Sfo, but neglected to tell Noreat where he was going, so Noreat had to hunt him down. :^3

This is the first real time I've written any kind of dialogue for Zephyr. I think I only wrote two other lines for him, waaaaaaay back at the beginning of KINGS. I hope you approve of what I had him say, Grimms! I'm more accustomed to drawing dear Zeph, not writing for him. >..>;

I had Sfo say that he had to find himself a girl, but at the same time, I don't think Sfo would be totally adverse to finding himself a guy, either... hmm. We'll have to think more on that one. (FYI: there is no stigma attached to being gay on Dwal. Now, if you happen to be an Ynoizmno...)
Anyway, I don't see Sfo having a terribly active romantic life. He's too ambitious, trying to move up in society to be distracted with that nonsense. :P

And of course my little comic ends in a kiss. Because if it doesn't end in a kiss, the saints cry.

Welp. This just made my night.

Do you know how many times I've tried writing a scene with these two drinking and being bros? SO. MANY. TIMES. And you just did it perfectly and askgaflaga!! You did Zephyr's dialogue perfectly, my dear Misty! Thank you so much! I simply adore this strip.

I will never tire of this pairing. Ever.

And I love Noreat in green.

My sister says that everything about this strip is win and she loves it.

I would love to read a full blown comic in this format.

Ooh, good! I'm so glad I got Zephyr's dialogue right! :phew:
Nyaahha, writing/drawing these two being bros was so much fun. I'd gladly do it again! ^o^ I'm so happy you got a kick out of it!

Oh, man. This pairing brings me so much joy, it's insane.

I rather like Noreat in green, too. I ought to put him in it more often. And I'm glad your sistah like this comic! Tell her thank you for me.
You would? Uh-oh. I might have to start plotting.

You did perfectly, my darling! I love every inch of this comic. :heart:

It should be illegal how much we love this so I could happily break the law for these two.

Yes I would. This looks really nice, even if it's time consuming. I would wait for a once-a-week update for a comic like this.

It would be an unjust law, that I too would happily break!

Ooh, really? Hmm, I will definitely have to consider doing this, then.

Um that gal Sfo should be with? Yeah, um, that should be ME. >D
There are so many awesome parts about this that I don't even know where to start! XD Sfo is just effing hot ok? XD Damn, if I print him out can he be real?? and I LOVE that panel of him with the dot eyes! XDXDXD

Everything about this is great! Someday I'm going to make you fanart.. but I won't say when so it'll be a surprise! (Mostly it's because I procrastinate too much and things end up taking years to finish LOL) I'm pretty sure I can have something done for you before my 60th birthday! =D

Ha!! Anyway, brilliant work as always! I totally look forward to these comics all the time! <3

Aaw, that's so kind of you, Koba! I'd be so, so happy to get some fanart from you! I look forward to that day~ :hug:

"Because if it doesn't end in a kiss, the saints cry."
That made me giggle madly. You're turning me back into such a fangirl.

It feels so weird to see a more conventional comic for Zephyr and Noreat. But I enjoyed it a lot and it was a lot of fun to read. I think you did Zephyr's dialogue splendidly.
And you know, if I were ever to cosplay, I think it would be Noreat in this outfit. HIS MAKE-UP. Oh my, I love it. I don't think I could get as pale as he is without a lot of Geisha powder on my body though.

Mwahahah, it was my ultimate plan to turn you into a fangirl. :evillaugh: Mission complete.

Oooh, I would be flattered to death if anyone were to cosplay my characters! (And don't worry, Noreat does powder his face and hands, so you using powder wouldn't be out of character at all~)
Thanks so much, Myrtu! :hug:

It would be amazing to cosplay one of your characters, they're all so unique and wonderful. Noreat's worth the pain of heels. If I ever do it, I'll send you a picture.
