And so ends Issue 17! I hope you've all enjoyed the story so far. If you'd like to download this issue, the complete cbz is now available. Please feel free to share the file and help introduce others to CN:H. I don't have much funds for advertising, so telling others is a big help!

As I mentioned a few weeks back, we'll be taking a quick break due to family matters, the holiday, and a desire to get a new working schedule settled into place. Updates will resume Monday, January 13th with another interlude following Specter, Jinx, and Rummy in the Market.

If you'd like to keep an eye on me, I'll try to update my Tumblr with sketches during the break. You can also ask me questions via my Tumblr.

Thanks guys and Merry Christmas!

He made his choice and now Puck has to answer. The question is.... What answer will Puck give? Going to miss your regular posts. Go enjoy the Holiday's and heal up and come back to us Darc! I wish you a happy Holiday's!
Darc
I'm back from the trip so it's time to catch up with everyone. :D Thank you! I found a few ideas that I can use to help strengthen the wrist and shoulder so I'll start trying those during the break. I'm so excited! :D
Crimson
I suspected Spooky would go all hulk on us. Too bad Puck is Puck. Ah well. Sometimes you just lose. Have good fun you guys, merry happenings! (and luck.) ;)
Darc
SPOOKY SMASH! :D
Phlosioneer
Happy Holidays! What a cliff, though. And it's not even going to be addressed when this starts back up. Ouch.
Darc
Yep, ain't I a stinker? ;D
Imre Bellic
Have a wonderful Christmas Darcy, Kilin and I will see you in a month! Hugs!
Darc
Thank you! I hope your Christmas was awesome! *HUGS*

Spooky looks like he's ready to try and snap puck like a twig
Darc
Even fellows like Spooky have their limits.
Petrov
Thank you very much! Have a Joyous Solstice, a Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays all around! Enjoy!
Darc
Thank you! You too! :D

And thus we stop, knowing that he does get the names but will we get to know them? Have a wonderful holiday season, don't overeat, give the wrist a good rest, and most importantly, enjoy yourself. Merry Christmas!!
Darc
Thanks! Yeah, it seemed like a good stopping point, if a bit of a cliffhanger.
Kenku
You know, Puck may have tricked him somewhat in that. He did say he would tell him where or how he would find them, only what the names are. Hopefully that still will work to do for what he needs although.
Darc
No worries, it'll work. The Queens are summoned by the names, so there's no need to be near them when the names are spoken. They'll find you.

Darcy, I have to complement you on what I feel is one of the best stories, webcomic or not, currently on the Internet. Having seen some of the earlier posts about York work, I can understand your frustration and anger towards some of your more small minded readers. I myself would aspire to be a writer of science fiction, however, I find myself crippled by the fear of similar attacks upon my work. Were that I had half your courage and tenacity, I would indeed make a go of it, but, time after time I find myself stopping midway through a good story, and setting it aside with the sure knowledge that it's nothing more than sheer drek. So, for my sake and your own, never let the eastwards get you down. Jason P.S. and as Churchill once said, "We have nothing to fear, but fear itself... and REALLY big spiders!"
Darc
Thank you! *blush* I always feel anxious whenever I share a page. I enjoy working on them, but worry about the response. It's terrifying putting things out there sometimes. The only thing you can do is hold on and hope for the best. :D
Surprised
Badasses wear pink, I guess. O_O
Darc
"Let's face it. You've gotta be a man to wear tights!" Oh, wait... wrong movie.
Stephalopod
One of your best chapters of CN:H yet. Congrats on all the hard work and rest easy!
Darc
Thank you! :D

"Sure. They're Brandi and Stacey." Just kidding. I wonder if Spooky gets three times to use the names, then the princess and everyone after her gets three more...or do they "change the password"? I wonder if Hunter will remember what Puck revealed to him on Treaty Night? I wonder if it was intentional? Stay tuned as we ponder these and other questions right here on... (Merry Christmas!)
Darc
Puck: "Bob, they're named Bob." Spooky: "W-wait... what? BOB? They're BOTH named Bob?" Puck: "Easier that way."
rwstyles
Logically, either extreme would be pointless. I don't know what the answer should be. Either the name could be easily rendered permanently useless, or the queen could be permanently "pwned".
Darc
Maybe... or maybe not. We'll just have to see. ;D
Iron Ed
Merrrry Christmas, Darc & Matt!!! AND a Happy New Year too!!!
Darc
Thanks Ed! And to you too! :D

Happy New Year Darc & Matt! Still sitting on the edge of my seat, patiently waiting for what happens next. I expect action, excitement, and then Ruby deciding to streak through the Fey Market. She's streaked through a city before, after all...
A.J.
Of course it's AFTER I hit 'reply' that I remember that Ruby's not there with him /facepalm
Iron Ed
Well, they do say that -anything- (anyone?) is available in the Fey market... ;-)
Matt
For the right price...
Iron Ed
That could be a problem...since Ruby is priceless! :-) Happy New Year, Matt & Darc!!
Darc
Happy New Year, Ed! *HUGS*
Darc
Ahhh! I so have to draw that now! It may take a few months, but it will happen. Oh yes, it will happen. :D Max: "Ruby?! What are YOU doing here?" Ruby: "Livin' the DREEAAAAM!"
blu3wolf
dangit! anyone else suffering withdrawal..?
