***********************************************

Incarceration is difficult and tedious, even for a Scholar, but Elina recognizes that the bars that keep her caged within the small crawlspace also keep the walking dead beyond at bay. To still the terror mounting within, she mentally rehearses the various charms she could call upon to regain her freedom, but she knows that leaving her cage for the room beyond would leave her horribly vulnerable to further attacks by the undead. Sitting back against the wall of the pen, the Scholar steels herself by staring out at the antics of her gremlin captor, allowing her mind to drift and expand to address the greater questions around her...

***********************************************

And we're off!

My intention is to do a few of these here and there in the midst of the Rats Revision pages. Elina's stock model has already been identified as ~Feathered-pics . When it becomes necessary to update the timeline, I certainly will. Suffice to say for the moment that this scene occurs perhaps 20-30 minutes after the last page of Coils of Fate (which would put it at about 5:30, I think).

Note: As I indicated at the end of the last page of Coils, the remaining "vore" scenes of Drea being consumed by the constrictor rug will show up in a future chapter--it was to be this one, but it will be the next. At long last and with some fantastic help, I have figured out how many chapters this damn thing will have, and how they will be organized. "Bookbinding" will be followed by "Web of Betrayal," with an intention for one other chapter after that. However, that final chapter is likely to be a real doozy, so I'll probably break it into two. But we're just about in the home stretch on this thing, and I'm starting to get a bit excited... :excited: Regardless, for those of you hoping to see the "feet protruding" shot and the "swollen middle" shot, sit tight.

As I indicated at the end of the Coils, we're at the point in this story where things are coming together (finally). This chapter will do that even more than Coils did. Some "big guns" are about to fire... :plotting: We'll also start work with a new stock model for everyone's favorite hero who seems to ruin everything he tries to fix, Luther Vandermoor.

Enjoy!

"Book Binding" eh? Wonder what the double meaning is going to be this time.

I take it an actual book will be in appearance, and either it'll be used to bind someone with spells or the power within it will need to be bound and controlled.

Anyway, glad to see this thing is back in action. I won't be able to comment much for the next couple of weeks, but I look forward to seeing more.

Hah, it's like I knew it! Hadn't checked for anyting new in quite a while here, and when I finally do, sure enough I hit the beginning of a new chapter within a day!

Well, the title does sound promising already.

Ooh, I like the backlighting on the zombie-ghoul-undead-corpse-thingys- gives off a very creepy effect. That and the way Elina's dress folds around her in that posture (I don't remember which if any photo this comes from, but it's a good one because despite not being the most utterly flattering in terms of female figure (speaking objectively, the slouched/hunched-over pose isn't flattering on any body type regardless of gender), it's a common and very natural one, especially in such a situation as this). :)

Thanks a bunch! I actually just used one of the rear-view photos of your hair (standing, turning) for this one, and I had my wife model the posing of the hands for me so I could get it right. And, yes, whoever designed that cell wasn't thinking of figure flattery and physical comfort--if so they'd at least have included a throw pillow! ;)

I'm imagining the scholar's in line for more ungentlemanly treatment. B) Nicely done as ever. Have you caused a state-wide shortage of pencils yet?

Elina is a rather enjoyable character to illustrate. :nod: Well, the Iron Wagon will still make its appearance, but as far as its own chapter goes, that'll be difficult. And, I haven't completely given up on the centaurette yet. I still have six of her pages taped out on three boards and waiting for more than just a faint, rough pencil outline...

vvvan Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
Glad to hear it. A captured centaurette is a terrible thing to waste. :D

I wish a second wave of gremlins was on the way. I'd luv to see Elina meet a similar fate as Val. Imagine... the zombies wander off in search of brains, a small horde of the little guys appear---all smiling their evil little smiles and clutching coils of rope---and they slooowly approach Elina's cell. :eager: The bars won't keep those guys out! :evillaugh: Much gratuitous shrieking, stripping, and binding ensues. :woohoo:

Nice to see Elina back, even is she is rather over-dressed and under-roped. That said, I trust you to deal with both issues (and keep that annoying do-gooder, Luther from interfering too much).

So it's finally Elina's turn to get humiliated? I guess she's overdue. =p Although here I thought she was clever staying hidden in her cell where nothing could get to her.

Yeah but you told me yourself that ever female character with her own chapter will eventually end up captured and naked. =p

I just hope that perhaps some of the captives can at last get their revenge.

Also we know he was working for someone else. :P

Well now it might not turn out that way for her. She could succeed where every other female character has thus far failed. She's got the skills, and the attitude, and the-... Oh, who am I kidding?! Yes, as you said, "Sad for her, yay for us." :w00t:

P.S.: Should have left this as a comment when you were re-doing Rats, but it's nice that Valerin was wearing proper armour as opposed to 'bikini armour'. This is a pet peeve of mine. Congrats to Drea too for proper amouring!

You tend to see the "bikini armor" more in stories/comic books where the woman NEVER loses and where you'd never see a woman fully nude (God knows why, it's not like that "armor" leaves anything to the imagination). She never gets stripped/exposed fully so the armor is just a form of blatant fan-service because they have to sexualize the heroine somehow for all the fanboys. With this story we get our "jollies" more directly in the form of seeing her stripped of the armor, bound, spiritually broken, and used in later chapters. Jeff doesn't have to "tease" us with bikini armor because he's going to show us "the goods" later. :)

I am both happy to see the story progress and frustrated that we're not seeing "Rats" closer to getting put to bed permanently. :/

But then... we get to see an entirely new woman stripped and violated, and this time it's a nerd-girl fantasy. :D We'll live with this.
