Aria: These are all very good questions. But this is not a good place to discuss this. You should go find somewhere safe first.

Aria: ..........Yes!Aria: Yes, I see, you are asking... Good questions.Aria: And me, I have... Good answers! Very.???: Uh.???: I really doubt that now.Aria: B-but!Aria: First, don't you think this is a dangerous spot?Aria: It's very open, which is very bad for us humans!Aria: I don't think I need to explain why that is the case... So, yeah! Aria: Maybe let's take some time to look for somewhere more suitable firs- ???: Look.Aria: A-aa!???: I'm better equipped than you, more knowledgeable, and more resourceful.???: I may as well just be better than you in every way right now.???: Someone like me would never be out in the open if there was any danger.???: And someone like you would do the same. ???: Don't play around.Aria: U-uuh.???: But, you know what, fine.…

Meimona: Explain your abilities to the simpleton human (but don't say that you think he's a simpleton)

Meimona: I'm an angel of fortune! It is my title.Nino: Does that mean you're just incredibly lucky?Meimona: Uhmm, to put it simply, yes kind of!Meimona: Do you know about angelic titles?Nino: Uh, not much. Nino: I guess I know that it's a thing the winged have, that's about it.Nino: There's not a whole lot that I know about you guys.Nino: Mostly because... I guess there's not much winged information that humans care to make readily available during these times?Meimona: Hey, that's still already more than what most people know about us!Nino: Well, humans are more focused on themselves nowadays. With good reason.Meimona: Don't worry, I can explain! Meimona: It's definitely nothing too complex! Meimona: Err, maybe I only think so because I'm a winged... Nino: Hey, I'm not dumb! Nino:…

Aria: It's a human! But more importantly, IT'S LUDWIG It... It IS a human! That was kind of careless of you, forgetting that you potentially could run into anyone here and not applying any disguises. Well, to be fair, the spirit was taking up all your attention, but fortunately you ran into another human and not a monster so it's all okay and hey wait... Wait... Is that Ludwig. IS THAT LUDWIG. Yes it IS, YES IT IS! IT'S LUDWIG! IT'S YOUR GOOD AND LOYAL FRIEND!! HE'S ALIVE!!!!!!! Aria: HUG NOW He's safe! He's here, in the flesh! Ludwig!! He rushes at you for a BIG reunion hug. You and Five rejoice, YAY!!!!!!!!! The human boy just stands there, silently staring. It feels kind of judgmental, but well, you've still…

The spirit obstructed your attack, rendering it useless. However, you managed to create a gap between the spirit and Five, successfully protecting her! It's what matters most right now. You tell Five to stay as close as possible to your back. Menacingly, the spirit prepares to do something again. As a soul-eating sense of danger befalls you, your grip on Five strengthens. You'll be ready for whatever it does. The area around you bends unnaturally. Like a canvas, unseen forces begin to paint on it. The spirit's illusory hands must be at work. Not knowing what's coming forces you to take a defensive position for now. The biggest danger is in the unknown, when you're unaware what your opponent is capable of. Yet no matter what it may be, you've…

Everybody fears being forgotten after death, you know. I am no different, of course.   Oh, the wounds are still so fresh, see? You, the one person who could mourn my memory, chose to forget me like this! The only person who was there for my final moments!   Not only that, but the one I GAVE those moments for, too!   Don't you want to make it fair? It's all you've been thinking ever since, I can tell. Why am I the only one who has to die so young, not before seeing my dreams through?   It's okay! You can make it fair! This way, it will all be forgiven, Ari- .- .- .- .- .- .- .- .- .- .- .- .- .- Aria: That's enough of…

Aria: Ignore the illusion

It's too bad she's going to have to find out this way, isn't it? Really, if only you were honest from the beginning. I hate liars, you know!   I won’t forgive you for letting me die, though.   I was still so young! I too had ambitions, dreams, and goals to live for even if I couldn’t remember them all at the time, you know? So. It’s only fair that you take responsibility now.   You are a human too, you will pay with your soul like I did. Don't worry! This way, you won’t be a bother anymore! ... Good. Being so resigned will make it easier.   Five: Aria!! Five: No, Aria can't listen!Five: You... Can't listen to spirits!Five: It's lying, it's not real... Five: Five knows…

Kaji: Play it cool.

Oh, you try, but you're struggling to not smile from ear to ear! It's just, it's finally happening, you know? The recognition you've always wanted- You mean, always deserved! Yes, surely, in no time, every man on this island will finally open their eyes and realize the gift they've been given from the heavens. And what a coveted gift it is! It is fact that anyone you serve is exceptionally lucky to have your services, these people just need to realize that. It's alright, the public can be a bit dense sometimes, and thankfully you're one understanding fellow. Act like this is natural and the fans will be flocking to you in no time! Oh yes, one more fan-letter to add to the pile at home, you say. The barkeep…

3rd Anniversary!

Today, 5/17, Oceanfalls becomes three years old! I started this comic in may 17th of 2016, but I've actually had the story & characters for way longer! Since 2010 at earliest, it's all come a long way from a small game project to an ongoing interactive webcomic. This comic, it's story, and each of it's characters is all very special to me. Its story and characters grew up alongside myself all the way 'till now, and nothing makes me happier than having the chance to share every bit of it with another person. Thank you so much for reading the comic, for all the support, and for just being here! I would not be at where I am without it all. And I hope the future will be even better!…

Kaji: Two of them, one of you. You’ll be outnumbered.

Nah, you've got this! You're not worried. You're worth at least FOUR people by your own! Not literally though; you're not like a certain royal superior of yours. Kaji: Make a DRAMATIC ENTRY and catch them off-guard! You bust through the swingy-dealie doors in the loudest manner one can bust through a swingy-dealie bar door. Not just because it's fun to swing those doors open (it's really fun to swing them open), but also for that extra INTIMIDATION factor. You then declare some TRUE FACTS as loudly as you can: "Yer busted, busters!" These kids aren't getting past you! Unfortunately, the dastardly criminals are nowhere to be seen, and now you've just caused a huge ruckus for no reason. You've even interrupted an open-mic talent with your boisterousness. O-oh well!…

Aria: Dodge!

You manage a safe evasive move and a counter-attack in one swift motion. Looks like the spirits in this area are still quite hostile! Aria: Help Ludwig Aria: Five, stay back!Aria: I'll deal with this spirit!Aria: Don't worry about Ludwig, I'll hel- Huh? ... --- / -... . / .. - .-.-.- Aria: Kill it! As fast as you can, you turn to intercept a sudden attack! It's aiming high, not towards you, but beyond... Behind you? Towards Five? If so, then fat chance!! You swing your heavy cleaver spiritwise.

Try to imagine.

The world chosen for Cinders to live in is cruel and loveless. One where survival came only through one's strength, from even the first moment of life. And so, to understand it, we try to imagine some of those first moments. Take a closer look. In the winged overworld, the persons tasked with the job of killing newborns are called Collapsers. They roam the Nursing Fields, where young winged descend from the stars during the darkest hour of nighttime, and they carry out a process of extermination every night. This job is one of the many extremely important jobs in the winged overworld, as to keep the order established by the Princess safe and sound. It is also the hardest job possible for winged, besides the job of being the…
