Phew, that's the end of another update! I hate to love ya and leave ya on such a doozy of a cliffhanger, but being this late (and trust me I hate when it happens) means that catching up will only mean another mad rush. As it happens, I've got some things to iron out for arc 2 (which mind you, won't be coming for a while) + a few other extras to get done. So I'll be getting those ticked off my list while working on the next update.

Good news though - the next update IS planned out and pretty much ready for me to jump straight on the storyboards! So I'll definitely have enough time to get it done.

And even better news - Ch 3 will start with the second page of the next update! I'm so excited - we've finally made it to the end of another chapter :D

Author notes for this page - that Gust panel is probably one of my favourite ones ever. It's so simple but I always love a badass declaration panel, especially from someone who's still finding their feet with this whole heroics thing.

Other random trivia - Gust's running pose for panel 4 was referenced directly from My Hero Academia's 1st ending sequence, plus the Artem/Ramon faceoff panel involved a LOT of posing in the mirror. Thank god I don't live on the ground floor, else my neighbours would think I've lost it!

See you in 2 weeks! And keep your guesses coming as to what Artem's super secret move is down in the comments!

not confident in his abilities + "what happened all those years ago"

sounds like in the past gust had to use his powers and things went terribly wrong. i guess it had to do with him not being strong enough, and someone else got hurt. or it was an impossible situation that nobody would be able to beat, but he still feels guilty about it anyway.

Replies like this are why I'm such a huge fan of sprinkling in backstory hints.

One of those is correct - I shant say which ;) but rest assured, Vitreous' main trio all have interesting pasts which shaped who they are today..

Gust for the rescue!
But he really doesn't seem confident in his abilities, who knows what terrible accident happended in the past?

Hmmm Artems secret attack: Maybe an epic lightning will strike Ramon down?
If Gust's tornado doesn't hit him first XD

Who knows indeed - all I'll say is that you haven't heard the last of it for this arc, I'll keep sprinkling in little nuggets here and there ;)

Oh SOMETHING will strike him down - you'll just have to wait till the 27th to find out what :P

Also a random bit of trivia - including all my author comments, yours is the 100th on this series Lyann! You should be honoured xD

(about 50% of them are my author ones haha but I'm gonna take the milestone and run!)

Then keep your eyes peeled, because some of them are definitely of the 'blink-and-you'll-miss-'em' variety :P
