Lock Me Away Marcilyn Locket




"When I express how I feel inside, I feel like a tree. Strong and determined, but also faceless.

"There’s something about a tree that I find beautiful… 


"But sometimes, trees fall from the ground...


"And even then, they rise again with a new seed. 


"Sometimes I feel like that with you and me."

 - Royal Inventor Marcilyn.

Xe are in love with Princess Estelle - who's a avid reader of dry books, and also helps out occasionally with the inventors.

Lock Me Away Marcilyn Locket Commentary 

I've been waiting to get this out for a LONG time, and I apologize for the wait! I was thinking of actually having this out around February
 or March - so I'm actually ahead in that regard!

Many of you knew me as the person who used to write stories that were very heartfelt and honest, but also pure in the sense that they are written for both young and old ages alike, and I missed that with Netheron. 

The Novel itself - seemed to be taking a different direction - a far more gothic-centric, and dark one with more mature content that made me miss what the core of Netheron was - the light hearted, fluffy and pureness of these  characters.

I felt so apart from Netheron for quite a while, because even if I thought I was writing something that I really enjoyed, at the heart of what I write, is the soft-hearted, and adoring content of these characters, because that is what I've realized Netheron actually is, and what I want it to be. 

Although I still do - and love - to write darker works alike with Netheron and other stories - I've decided for this comic, a light-hearted and pure approach was intended to reach to audiences of all ages.

Therefore, as for the novel version - I'm still deciding what to do about it, because the current version doesn't satisfy what my vision of Netheron actually is, although I do believe it is well written in any regards. 

As a whole, I hope you enjoy this work. I know it has been years since I've last released a project, and it is my apology for such. 

I've decided that my main focus will be on this comic as well as future commissions, and everything else will become secondary... including the novel <3

I'm sorry if my deadlines haven't be quite on point, I am trying - truly to stay on deadlines. As you might see from my twitter post on @vivdrawscomics - I am NOT the best at making deadlines, haha!

I hope you love my content and enjoy what I have to offer. I am trying my best to reach out to each of you :heart:

This is my first time doing a long term comic, so I would appreciate all critiques for improvement, and of course - the inspiration to keep on going ;)

If you see plotholes - let me know. My best friend and I checked profusely over Discord several times for several hours just to catch all or most of them XD I consider him almost like a co-writer... though he'll just tell me: "I'm just a critic!" But it's thanks to him that he's made so many of my projects a possibility, so I really thank him for bringing this comic to life :heart: 

NOW: when is the first page coming out?


Well you see, I am already IN THE WORKS of the first page!!

I did a massive re-do of the script once I realized just how crappy it was - I wanted something genuine and fun to read, even for me!

The ending even got me to tweet this:

twitter.com/vivdrawscomics/sta…

And if you know as well as I do, when I get excited about  a project, I know it's going to be good!

So I hope you stick around for the premise of this  comic series... because it's been a lot of fun scripting and planning for it. 

It wasn't really what I was expecting to do, but sometimes we need a new direction in life - and hey, I discovered I actually quite like drawing comics!! :love:

A bit late haha. Very excited for this :D
I find that over time, stories tend to get darker. It's just a fact of life, I guess. Though while dark tales can be amazing and gripping, light-heartedness is always welcome. Happy times are fun times, and hey, it makes it far more easier to make your audience cry, creating an energy source for nearby authors to feed off.

Ahh thank you so much <33 Oh no, you're never too late, haha!

I agree with this, because I've noticed it too in my fiction. Duchess of Tears (Drethathon/The Prequel) has always been that kind of prequel that has been a lot darker than the original. 
You guys will probably cry then once I get Duchess of Tears out there x'D First I give you a sappy childish romance, and then I put your emotions for a test with a near-Shakespearean thriller romance x'D
One of these days, I'm going to have to show you guys a sliver of it... I just need to finish writing the darn thing out x'D

Mwahahaha don't worry - I'll be gently destructive in my plot  for world domination ;P

Prepare the buckets, it might be a mountain fall of tears! ;D ... but the sappiness of the comic just might save you!

Indeed <33 Sometimes it's good to just let loose and write something light-hearted and fun. I am a writer who's known to write both dark and light works... even says so on my other twitter x'D

I'm glad you've discovered you like drawing comics, and I'm glad you're reconciling Netheron with what you want it to be through this comic ^^ Don't feel rushed or pressured! <33 The first page looks great!

Thank you so much <33 Ahh maybe I'm a little bit fast at spreading information, but I definitely took a lot of time to flesh out the comic so what I hope is that it reads nice XD Of course, while I'm doing the actual pages, I will be revising the text to match the pictures as well, so everything gets a second thought into it as well :D And of course, I'm just excited as heck too lol x'D
