We're back! Your faith and patience has been rewarded.

As for what almost happened to Billy? I suppose that's a secret to be kept between you and Mr. Amical, dear reader.

OH MY GOSH! Amical, you jerk. T.T I...*inarticulate flailing*
I did not think of this possibility, but I had the right general idea. I should have remembered that Amical does love Billy, even if he tends to fly off the handle.

Nobody will ever know what almost happened, nobody but us, Amical, and Curio apparently...

Jolly good show, Amical shot him again :D

@D3c3nd4n7: You can just replay this page and watch him get shot over and over.

One wonder what is the use of the colar, if amical stick to his gun...

Oh boy. That is...

Well. Amical was using Time there to see a few rounds ahead? Fate and Time are his specialty spheres, so that makes sense.

"I need to stop doing that." He pulled the gun and activated its various powers maybe?

Glimpsing the Future would allow him to see the immediate future and how it could be done better. Possible.

However, I'll bet this is Shifting Sands. I'll further bet that its Turning Back the Page.
"Effect: The mage rewinds time. He grabs hold of the threads of time and pulls himself back one turn, allowing him to choose a different approach to a situation (though, from the perspective of all save the willworker himself, this is the first and only time this moment has occurred or will occur)... This spell does not erase the effects of time on the mage. It merely allows him to step back in the river of time by one turn and replay its flow. Although he cannot reverse any harm he himself has suffered, it can be instrumental in allowing the mage to save the lives of others."

@Mindsword2: Indeed. I expected as much. But spoiler tags, please...
@Aslandus And possibly Tyler, though I doubt he knows there's anything to look for . . . yet.

@burningtyger: for future reference, what precisely in there was a spoiler? I assume my guesses about what he was casting, but I wanted to confirm.

Not the first time I've guessed at spells, but it is the first time I've been asked to put some spoiler tags.

@Mindsword2 @burningtyger: I wouldn't consider guesses at what's happening to be spoilers. The title of the page is Shifting Sands also. heh. But yeah, I think theories like these belong in the comments, at least as far as I'm concerned I don't think of it as needing to be spoiler tagged.

@ChibiSilverWings: ... Does that mean I should give up my theory that he's using the rote Turning Back the Page? He's always seemed pretty Silver Ladder to me.

@ChibiSilverWings: You said i should go back to sleep, so thought it might have been rude to theorize :P

@burningtyger: Haha I was just teasing you, sorry about that!

@ChibiSilverWings: Oh I knew you were teasing, but thought it might have been a barbed joke.

Oh man, I forgot he was an Acanthus.

sweet merciless crap
H-he's killed them all before and just rewinded time. Curio has likely died dozens of times already O_O He's killed them all probably and just "fixed" everything after wtf.

@Shadow: .. he did say "this time" didn't he?

Dear gods, Shadow. That's a grim thought. *shudder*

I like it.

The pink arrow at the end of the page is currently just redirecting back to this page. It's weirdly fitting, but you might want to fix it anyhow. XD

OK
So thats the kind of stuff a Mage can pull Interesting.

@Evil Eye: Yes. There are also ways to sense this meddling.

You must be kidding me...

After such interesting previous page and a well deserved death by virtue of being obnoxious, he fate/time changed it to minor injury?

Can't we have the awesome first chapter with characters dying one after another?

I'm seeing why everyone says Amical's a good person! As a powerful mage, I wouldn't tolerate others destroying my house, much less a noob powerless one.
