  1. Kalatash

    …wow. Yinglet yaoi.

    Also, I love the red female’s death stare in the last panel.

    • Valsalia

      He should know better than to encourage him!

  2. Chronocrosser

    There’s almost always one in every class.

  3. OhDogWhy?!

    There’s always that one smart ass who has to ask questions when you could have been left to free time.

    Nice to see this update with way more lore fluff than I wanted to know!

  4. Winged one

    I like your art and poor distressted rodent girl. Also I gave you randomly like 40 bucks or something once, I dunno I forgot!

    • Valsalia

      I remember that! Really made my day, that did.

      And I can’t offer much other than more art and poor distressed rodent girls, so I’m glad that works out for you!

  5. Chochi

    That was more explicit and detailed and accureta than ANYONE would like to accept…but Ran has his ways to introduce knowledge inside the younglings.

    • Valsalia

      Well hey, the great houses pay good money for access to what Ivenmoth’s research, so it’s only right that he put effort into a high-quality science lesson!

      And it always helps to be enthusiastic about what you do.

  6. Villicent

    I’m a huge fan, love your characters so much, but I don’t want you to feel pressured or stressed. You won’t lose me if you take a break now and then.

    • Valsalia

      Thanks; I get the feeling that’s how a lot of people feel. The thing is though, I don’t LIKE taking breaks! If I had my way, I’d just hook myself up to an IV and establish a hermitage at my drawing table.

  7. TvTropesgotmehooked

    Alright, who’s going to pick Ran covered with fruit pulp as an avatar?
    How about that girl digging her nails into the desk, haha. *screeching chalkboard sound*

    I hope Ran doesn’t discover/invent silver iodide anytime soon…

    • Valsalia

      Oh, I’m sure he’ll invent worse things, given the time and resources.

  8. Thornbrier

    I’m following you through Feedly here, so I will get every update whenever you are able to put them out. I love your world building, it is an inspiration for my own. I also love how some aspects of our species are similar (particularly between your Yinglets and the Shozi of the Naku sex) though, this aspect of Yinglets is quite a bit different from any of mine.

    • Valsalia

      As nature demonstrates, sexual dimorphism is fun/weird!

  9. Ben

    For a second I thought he was going to talk about the orbs that turn human men into Yinglet women.

    • Valsalia

      Oh he’d love to know about that, no doubt.

  10. Badviper

    Oooooooohhhhh dear… xD

  11. Chris Bradford

    Huh, I was thinking that yinglets were monotremes.

    • Badviper

      As was I. Perhaps a more complex branch off of monotremes.

      • stevepusser

        This planet isn’t Earth, unless very, very far in the future; long enough for the continents to change, Earth somehow to gain moons, and to drift near a nebula, so the yinglets don’t necessarily have to be related to any Earthly life forms.

        • Chris Bradford

          I meant “monotreme” in the sense of having a single vent rather than multiple openings for genitals and waste excretion.

    • Valsalia

      They have some of those features!

      And because they are yinglets, there’s of course a bunch of other weird stuff going on.

  12. Flavius



    LOVE this comic I check back everyday and re-read it constantly. 2nd best comic behind Underling TBH. And will probably surpass it in my opinion though very very soon. I now need to choose a favorite character hmm so many to choose from rip. Another reason to stop studying and to re-read le comic ;3

    • Valsalia

      Haha, awesome! It’s always great to hear when this comic gets all up in someone’s personal Top 3 list. Then I must be doing something right, y’know?

  13. Souris curieuse

    New page, yay~
    So… Is tail-to-face position necessarily required, or face-to-face position is also possible?

    (P.S. About that… If anyone is too curious for own good, google “SLITFUCKING EXPLAINED by Lando”. NSFW, of course.)

    • Valsalia

      Both are possible, along with a few other positions. It’s pretty stretchy down there!

  14. TvTropesgotmehooked

    I’ll never look at a bowl of fruit they same way ever again…
    or even a basket of clams. All seafood really… 😛

    • Razor512
      • TvTropesgotmehooked

        Cute scav.

    • Valsalia

      The problem with people nowadays is that they don’t look for sexual metaphors in food enough.

  15. fe2f9ma8

    Haha! TMI, Ran! TMI! Though, Little Boy Blue seems intrigued. His parents should be careful, lest Ran persuade their son to become a lowly biologist instead of a great military commander, or whatever they have planned for him.

    • Valsalia

      Good, good; you definitely understand occupational priorities in this time period.

  16. KV-2 Crewed by Yinglets

    Hyper adaptive ratbirds have ruined no food for me this day. All that comes to mind is “Large groups of male yinglets are hard enough to organise already and now this.” Those kids on the other hand I’m not sure. Blue Boy might just be doing his level best to mess with his peers.

    • TvTropesgotmehooked

      Blue Boy might just be doing his level best to mess with his peers.

      For some reason I really like that theory! If he knows the girl next to him then yes, perfect demonstration of trolling your friends.

      She. Looks. Pissed.

      • TvTropesgotmehooked

        Why do blockquotes look so weird?

        Test. Added a space.

      • KV-2 Crewed by Yinglets

        I more sure of it now than I was before. The timing and wording is too precise. Just enough to elect a squicky explanation from Ran.

  17. Thydraconis

    <3 love the comic~
    I hope you can get things under wraps and start doing what you enjoy more too!

    • Valsalia

      That’s the plan! And all aspects are looking favorable in the near future.

  18. Bruce Bergman

    On your growing popularity, don’t freak over it. Just keep doing what you do at the rate you can do it, and once you kill those money troubles you might get enough income out of this to not worry about a “Day job” and do it on a fixed schedule… This is how Howard Tayler got started. 😉

    As to the reproductive peculiarities of Yinglets and the scarcity of females, perhaps he can crack the code and change that balance for the better. Might be a temperature thing, like some other species – if the testes temperatures are raised artificially by clothing or other environmental factors…

    • TvTropesgotmehooked

      Ah ha! Yes, like crocodiles I think is one species where temperature is the gender-determining factor.

      Is there a forum or something other than DeviantArt or this site to discuss WMG, theorys, and other reader speculation?

    • Razor512

      It would be awesome if popularity picks up to the point where it gets turned into an anime series :).

    • Valsalia

      Yeah; I’m just gonna keep on doing what I’ve been doing, at least until a point where there’s a larger bulk of archives and more people are aware that this thing exists. At that point, it’ll be time to consider going full-time. Wish me luck and all that!

  19. CyberTwin

    The way that red girl is looking at the blue guy… I see a certain scene from Office Space in his very near future.

    • Villicent

      What, with him in the role of a copy machine?

  20. suzukiman

    how does blue guys shoulder plume snap around his arm? and why is notes guy still on the same scribble the whole time?

    Also does anything at all in this entire universe cause Ran to be less than completely enthusiastic? I am also partly amazed that he did not purchase a recently dead-due-to-being-a-yinglet yinglet to dissect. Or is this one of those weeks where all of them have survived in some form or other?

  21. Riverwolf

    Hahahahahahahahahaheeeeeee I think I broke something hahahahahpangalacticgargleblaterhehehehaha

    • Valsalia

      Nooo don’t break

  22. Riverwolf

    Oh by the way…
    I think that Ran needs to go out and get laid. He was waaay to enthusiastic with his demo.

    • TvTropesgotmehooked

      I’m almost convinced that ‘Ran’ isn’t his real name, it’s just what people do whenever he starts talking!

  23. Van

    An amusing video came out recently that is somewhat relevant:

    • Valsalia

      Wow, that’s like a list of things I’ve learned to avoid while making this comic. Pretty comprehensive!

  24. Aww the sketch you posted prior is gone, and now I no longer have the links to the pudgy yinglet (raccoon) and the fight one.
    Oh well! I get to hunt for them again!

    I like your post! (And obviously the comic, that should go without saying!)
    Update as frequently or infrequently as you like or need! Things in life get hectic and demanding so everyone understands if things are late or if it needs to be skipped.

    Monthly updates are the easiest ones to do. lot less stress, and if you get an spark of creativity for a stort arc, you can knock out half a year with just six pages!

    Weekly updates are usually easier, but can become annoying if you are under stress because then it’s “just one more thing you gotta do,” adding to the burden.

    Some artists do multiple updates per week, and they are bleeding SUPER HEROES! Because that has got to be a ton of work and creativity constantly just pouring forth from their minds and hands (and tendons)!

    If you want my opinion of an interesting mix, you could do monthly updates, with sketches of the current comic (minus dialog and critical plot devices, of course).
    It is a unique way of doing online comics that no-one (that I have seen at least), is doing.
    The best part, is even if you change your mind about using the sketch in your comic, it will catch your reader by surprise in the speculation and sudden absence of the sketch. (You could even post bogus sketches, to completely mislead the readed before the big reveal at the end if the month! … if you were in the mood too if course :b)

    But it is your comic and these are just my thoughts, so it is your right to disregard anything I have said about updates prior.

    I just like updates because it lets me know that artist is doing okay, and that they are still alive and kicking. If stuff is going wrong with you, its a way for us to know, and help out if we can. Hopefully though, things go well for you and you live a life of ease, with few worries and problems.

    If things are well for you : Then updates are a great way to hear how wonderful you are doing in life, and we get to be happy to share in your joy!

    You do amazing work and I really like your explainations of the story and the lore within. A fantastic job!

    • Its looooooooooooooong! O_O

    • Valsalia

      Ey, thanks! It’s nice to know that most readers seem to be okay with a non-set schedule (aside from a general “once every one or two weeks” plan), so long as I don’t stop drawing it.

      Which is perfect for me right now, since my schedule’s a bit packed and unpredictable, but despite that, I’m sure as hell not gonna stop doing this anytime soon.

  25. Max

    I don’t know why, but for some reason I imagine those 3 students piloting some sort of magical EVA units. I think it may just be the color scheme, even though that doesn’t completely match.

    • Valsalia


      • Max

        Hah, yeah I think the deathglare in the last panel had a lot to do with it, too.

    • KV-2 Crewed by Yinglets

      Ran doing a Gendo pose is now plastered across my brain. Thanks I guess?

      • Max

        Right? I’ll admit that was my immediate thought on realizing what they reminded me of, and that, frankly, it was kind of awesome.

      • Valsalia

        Oh man, Trademaster Viracroix totally has dibs on the Gendo Pose. Anyone but him caught doing that gets sent to the salt mines.

        • KV-2 Crewed by Yinglets

          You know what you need to do….

        • TvTropesgotmehooked

          Ohh wow! I didn’t realize until now how awesome that would be!
          *fingers tap together*
          “Everything is going exactly as planned, mwha ha ha ha ha…”

  26. LarryGal

    Absolutely love it. I got so excited when i saw a new post. I absolutely love your Yinglets, (enough that i wanna run a d&d campaign with them) and from the moment i found this comic i fell in love with it. Wish i could support you more, perhaps if you sold prints or postcards i could buy some. Thanks for your awesome work hun

  27. suzukiman

    just to find out where to peg this, where is Ran’s limits? and is there any examples of that limit anywhere including real life, the internet, and this universe? just trying to gauge how close, or rather far from, his limits we are right now.
