Now you know what Mizha heard when she ran off. Want to hear the corrupted lullaby too? I made a recording of both the Pamaru version (first loop) and the English translation (overlaid on second loop). You can use the player below, or Right Click “Save As” here!

The original Lullaby has a very different message. This is the translation for how it should be sung:

Sleep my child,
Safe in my embrace.
Up you shall fly to the Hall in the Sky,
To dream — with a smile — on your face.

Clearly, this one has been warped a little bit!

You have a very pretty voice. 🙂

How long did you spend worldbuilding for this comic? It seems like this must have taken you forever– the richness of detail is just astounding, and then you’re doing all this other stuff like being an awesome artist and running OCTs and stuff too. Agh!
tl;dr= I’m jealous. 😛

Also, I love where the plot is going. It’s so pretty and twisted on so many levels and the psychology of it all excites me so very much.

Ummmmmmm I think I spent about six months doing nothing but world-build before starting pages. However, it’s a continual, iterative process. I have all the bones laid out, and the basic rules, but I’m constantly adding more and more little details to it. So it’s not as much work as it seems — I just got the right pieces down at the right time!

Psychology is something I study as a hobby. I find the human mind and behaviors absolutely fascinating! So I always incorporate a psychological element in my stories. It’s so exciting to find other people that find it as interesting as I do!

I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating. You are a woman after my own heart.

It seems like you’ve managed to find everything that makes me fangirl and you’ve done it/are interested in it. Honestly, I hope I’m like you when I grow up. 🙂

Robiiin! Howareyouthisawesome?? I’m so envious of the beautiful language you’ve crafted, and your talent for putting its words to music! Agh, I can’t wait to see what happens next, it’s all so intense!

“Intense” is a pretty good word for this chapter — we had some slow moments in the first few chapters to settle in and get to know people, but chapter four is where things get crazy!

My language has its roots in song, as it was (and still is) a hobby of mine to sing in nonsense syllables. It’s interesting to come at it from the opposite direction — English to Pamaru to music. Hmm…maybe I should do a podcast on how I crafted the song? Would that be of interest to anyone?

You are amazing. This page and the accompanying sound file just make me even more sure that you’re going to become a run-away success. This world you’ve created, and the talent that you have in bringing it to life and making it real in visual, sound, and touch is just amazing.

The only thing you haven’t let us do yet is smell and taste your world. So where’s the Leylines cookbook? 🙂

There are actually long-term plans for a LeyLines cook-book. Because I am THAT much of a nerd. Maple buns for mourning, Indulgence Day cookies…It’ll probably be a few years, but it IS on the “things I intend to produce some day” list. Along with the RPG!

I read dozens of webcomics, and have looked at hundreds. In all that time I can’t remember any other webcomic ever that not only created a language, but also created songs in that language AND performed them. I am simply in awe at the amount of work and talent involved in this project. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.

That is high praise indeed! Thank you so much! It is a lot of work, but it’s easy to do since I enjoy it so much! I’ve always found languages interesting, and my fondness for singing has existed from a very young age. My only regret is that I’ve never figured out how to create accompaniment with any instrument other than my voice. I tried to learn guitar, but never took to it, and I always over-complicate accompaniment when using a piano. Funny, that I don’t have that problem when making up vocal harmonies! Hmm…there’s something to be learned there…

My rambling tangent aside, I’m so glad you’re enjoying the comic! This is only the beginning of a very big adventure!!

I’m a new reader and just finished your first book I picked up at ComicCon. I love the story and artwork! I’ve also enjoyed the depth to your world. I just listened to the song and was blown away! I look forward to following your story. I have no doubt you will continue to see growing success. Thanks for all the extra content in the book. I really dig the detail and behind the scenes stuff. Thanks!

Hi Matt!! Thank you so much for buying the book at DCC!! That was the first convention I’d ever had my own table at, and I was so amazed and excited by the incredible support there! THANK YOU for being a part of that experience! I’m so glad that you are enjoying the story and all the extra material I’ve added to the world. I sometimes feel like a miner — I’m just constantly digging up new ideas and shaping them into the world.

One of my favorite parts of the online element is that I can add recordings and discussions that just couldn’t go in a book! I’m particularly proud of how this lullaby came out!! I think it’s a good mix between pretty and creepy. 🙂
