Pay close attention to this sequence, showing events from Many Years Ago, featuring K.A.'s father. He certainly looks in better shape than he does now. The yellow photo filter I use for the past scenes helps.

Also, you may recognize Mr. Percival's bodyguard as a grown-up Jake from It's Just Another Day, having gotten past his wacky adolescent escapades and brutal growing pains to...go into private security? Even so, I strongly recommend Bluraven C Houvener's comic.

Aw man you flatter me so much! Thank you!
I'm loving what you're doing with this series, both in story and style!

1) Loving the comic! Are you going to go full mythology like with Ruby?

2) Loving the links! That is a tool that you and I share, and I pity anyone who "speed reads" through your work.

3) So cool to see Jake here. Nice cameo pick!

Now to see where you go from here!

Yes, because Ruby Nation and We Are The Wyrecats take place in the same world...

I thought they might, but I wasn't going to ask... :)

Nice, I expect little tidbits telling us about the fate of Ruby's gang.

So, Ruby's World happened in the 2000s?
That would set my comic in the 90s ;)

Wouldn't that be an alternate dimension where everything got worse for both teams, as opposed to the same timeline?

I always like to think of Ruby's world as a probable future for M9 Girls giving the incipient technocracy there... Also, for some reason the Girls seem to live in the 90s

Scene shift to a yellow-tinted flashback to the past, a wide shot of an airport scrapyard, with an abandoned hangar in the center. A white limousine drives up, out of place amidst the mountains of rusted and dirty metal.


Kirk Percival gets out of the limo. He's holding a cell phone and talking to his ex-wife Chiyo, K.A.'s mother.

KIRK: "Yes, you'll get K.A. This weekend. Yes, I promise. I'm picking her up now from her study group. "

Kirk walks to the hangar, a bodyguard following him. He's still on the phone and getting more and more irritated.

KIRK: Yes, I know they're a bit off, but I'm just glad K.A. has friends.

The camera closes in closer on Kirk, who's clearly frowning.

KIRK: Yes, I know what you think of my school, Chiyo..."Imperialist think tank" or not, K.A.'s happy there. Doesn't that matter?

Kirk winces and puts his phone away. Chiyo's hung up on him.

KIRK: Chiyo?!? Fine...you wanted this
