YANORA: And you want to make love with me?   LAEMUL: Oh, I do.    PANEL 2   YANORA: With what expectation?  Are you going to want me to make you breakfast?   LAEMUL: (laughs) No. I have servants for that – so do you.   YANORA: Do you want to make it something to … use?  Become a favorite of mine in court, or …   PANEL 3   LAEMUL: Yanora, we are not children.  Nor am I one who desperately needs to climb like a clinging vine onto something else, lacking the power to stand on my own. No – I would welcome your honest friendship –    YANORA: And sex.    LAEMUL: Oh yes. Yes, yes, yes. But that is … personal.  The rest is separate. If we are wise and honest together, it will survive regardless of whether we make love or not.     PANEL 4   YANORA: Very well.    PANEL 5 He moves to embrace her   YANORA: Not here. Come to my chamber after vigils.    LAEMUL: Tonight?     YANORA: Yes.  Bring only yourself, no candle or lamp –  use a spell to make certain you’re not noticed, eh?   LAEMUL: I know several. I’ll use –     YANORA: You don’t have to impress me further, Laemul.     PANEL 6   LAEMUL:  (kisses her hand) Your Highness.    YANORA: Master.  Adieu.

  1. Hot Stuff! He’d be a Fool to turn that away!

  2. Such a charming story! And I assume this means you have safely landed in your new digs.

  3. Friends with benefits is nice.
    Friends you can trust, in a place you can trust no one else’s word, … with benefits, … is a gift from god!

  4. I appreciate the lighting, etc., but for the past few months the only way I can read the comic is via the text underneath.

    Is there any way we can increase the light level a bit, and place all text on a white background? It would really, really help.

    1. I think, perhaps, part of your problem with the test is that the color of the speech balloons is slightly translucent. This means that some of the darker texturing of the artwork underneath shows through, something like random patches. Perhaps if they were a solid color it might help?

      1. I’d guess the speech bubbles are probably 50 per cent translucent right now. Perhaps if they were more opaque the text would be easier to read. (It doesn’t bother me, but I can see how it can be hard to read if they are on top of a busy background).

  5. Say, in that second panel, we see a blazoned shield on the chimney’s mantle.
    That is the modern blason of the French Kingdom. Could it be our good mystic Laemul is from a Kivalian province akin to France?

  6. And suddenly that spell becomes so useful in this exchange…
    Hope your moving went well!

  7. Well, Yanora did say he was a bit of a mischief managed person in his youth. 😉 I think they both got what they wanted out of this; or at least they will very soon.
