I think it's about time you start getting some answers around here, don't you?

This is the first time I've ever redrawn a panel from earlier in the comic, believe it or not! The fourth panel here is a redraw of one from page 103. It's fun to see how much my style has changed- Pudding's head shape/layout in particular!! I should do more of these sometimes.

...Not that I'll ever have the time unless they're part of the comic, but maybe as commissions or something?? Either way, I hope you like this one small panel comparison!

there’s a lot to unravel here, but i’m too tired to think about it at the moment. see y’all in the morning.

okay, so obviously, the main angel here is the one whose silhouette was behind Audrey a few pages ago. but what about her two companions? one of them looks like Pudding. this is already strange enough, but the other companion bears a slight resemblance to Mi, and the main angel definitely looks like Audrey.
so, what we have here is Not-Audrey travelling up to Time Mountain with Not-Pudding and Not-Mi to seal the Demon. Sky can correct me if i'm wrong, but the "binding of souls" ritual had to be performed once every thousand years to keep the Demon at bay. i checked the introduction, and there doesn't seem to be anything that contradicts the idea that the Demon existed before Mobius' revolution.
where am i going with this? perhaps these angels would eventually live on Hetrea's surface with Mobius. perhaps they started, oh, i don't know, several years after Mobius and his harem died? perhaps they reproduced around the same time. perhaps Not-Pudding and Not-Mi had a child together. a little, yellow child. perhaps, around the same time, Not-Audrey gave birth (assuming mobians work like Earth-mammals) to a little orange child.
perhaps Pudding, Mi, and Audrey are direct descendants of these three angels.
this theory doesn't have much to stand on, and all Sky would have to do to disprove it is give us a little more lore involving angels and mobians, but it's something to think about.

Heads up, Important News Update!

My computer died last night! (It was a 2009 Dell) I've got everything backed up on an external hard drive, but until I get a new computer, everything I'm working on is going to have to take a mandatory break, DotX included!

I'm pretty frustrated, and I'm sure you are too, but hopefully everything will be up and running again real soon! I've got my fingers crossed that I can get the next page up by Tuesday, but I can't make any proises! It's kinda out of my hands until the new computer arrives.

I'll keep you updated if necessary! Sorry everyone!

Has anyone else noticed the strange resemblance between the demon and Lime's species? Try comparing Lime with the Demon's first appearance. They SO similar! Plus:
*Both Lime's and the Demon's species can shape-shift.
*Both Lime's and the Demon's species have blank eyes.
*Neither of those species are mentioned in the introduction.
Could it be that both species share a backstory similar to that of angels and mobians?

astute observation
this hasnt been talked abt in the comic but the demon is a "monster." they spawn and they are evil. the demon is like., a boss.

although Sky hasn’t actually stated this in-comic (which he hopefully will eventually), Gell/Goo/Lime/Paste’s species, as well as Demons, are monsters (although Gell’s species is now on the same level as Mobians and Humans).

when they were all lil blobs, they were monsters (i think) and they progessed to being sentient
