It’s exam time at Lumieria Magic School and apprentice witch Killey is busy studying. Her familiar Nica offers to take care of the house during the exams…will this clumsy familiar find a way to help his mistress?
The panel with the grayed-out Nica curled up in the fetal position is gorgeous. A lot of the rest of the artwork is pretty great too, though I don't really care for Nica's clothes or tail design. Or the star-like light sources--for some reason those are a bit distracting to me. The artist shows the clutter in the room to set the stage, but then a lot of the panels have a more minimal amount of background details. As for the content, it's supposed to be a heartwarming story about how love isn't tied to someone's usefulness to you. But the problem is that all of Killey's actions don't really portray love, unless you consider domestic/animal abuse to be loving. Like, think of it this way: since Killey knows that Nica is clumsy and liable to accidentally mess things up, wouldn't it be wiser for fem to go the route of a parent and put valuables out of feir reach? And since fe isn't attempting to cause harm, how does it help for Killey to beat fem into a mass of mosaic censorship? It doesn't even seem like fe's attempting to discipline fem as much as just venting feir anger, which is definitely abusive behavior. Though now that I think about it, people can abuse those that they love (it happens all the time), so I guess the central premise of the story still stands...but I don't think it's as heartwarming as the author intended...
