Ambrosia is not used to taking no for an answer.

Please note: These are work-in-progress colors. Vero should get me the final colors soon.

You did it! You’ve unlocked the special, NSFW pin-up of Kyle and Anaado for all Patrons!

We’re now at $5,505 per month in support, so I will be making this pin-up available for all Patrons to download for the month of February, starting on February 4th! (So, next week!)

Throughout the month of February, all Patrons, including brand-new ones, will be able to download this special, fully nude pin-up of Kyle and Anaado by artist superstar, Travis Moore. $10+ Patrons will be able to download a high-res version of this pin-up during February .

I’ll let you know here (and on Patreon) when it’s ready!

I was really looking forward to sharing this with you and I’m glad we were able to hit the target so quickly! Thank you very much, all of you, for your awesome support. :slight_smile:

Oh wow, now this I call desperation on her part :sweat_smile: I mean it speaks for her that she apparently wants to save her brother so much but making moves on a minor? No, lady, no :underage:

Um, I’m not claiming Spooky’s fibbing here, but if casting a single spell can doom a man, then some clarification regarding the Annihilator’s use of magic is needed. Did the Annihilator not use a spell to send himself and Kyle to Hell? Did the Annihilator not chant a spell to help create a second Key of Paradise? If those weren’t spells, what was really happening there? Did the Platinum Priestess give Duncan some nonsense words to say and any magical effects were really done by her?

Or did the Annihilator’s power of immunity to physical damage somehow save him from magical craziness? Like, we know from his time in Hell that Duncan isn’t completely immune from physical damage in some magical circumstances, but maybe it was enough for save himself from his own spellcasting? But then… would Sircea risk corrupting Duncan that way if she too knew that spellcasting a single time would ruin him as her strongman pawn?

It’s possible that Sircea actually cast the spell, and just gave Duncan an activation phrase to finish it. Sort of a “last link in the chain” situation.

Whooooops, Ambrosia, slow your roll there!!! Mitch ain’t having it either. also, hate to break it to you Miss VD but unless your bro’s taken a detour to hell, or has existing powers (?) or a sorceress helping him out (??), magic probably hasn’t treated him kindly.

It’s a good question, David. My intention at the time of writing that scene was what Nate suggested. But thinking about it now, there are other reasons that would have made him safe, or safer, than a non-extraordinary individual. The full Fallen arc might just make that more clear. :slight_smile:

“Miss VD” – ha!

I could picture an educational film for the troops in the 1940s that might have featured such a character…

Gotta love all of the creative thoughts here. Indeed, if “true magic” doomed you with one spell, there would be no evil druids to fight nor any good magicians around either. Noted, Spook’s is indeed a special case. Who else trained in hell?
