Just cooled off. All of these characters are getting intertwined, it's so cool!
I also love how Xira's getting so angry and terrified at this point. This situation has a strong likelihood of turning ugly...

Oh dangs! This is going to be interesting. Poor anxious Xira, he needs some calming tea and maybe a nap.

OHHHHNOOOOOOO on the one hand OH SNAP but on the other I'm kinda glad this seems to be coming out NOW and not like, when Iavin is right there to attack them and terrify Sev and/or after Xira has possibly already tried to betray the person who can save Jonan etc etc... TIME FOR A GROUP CHAT??

I often think that so many webcomic aggravations could be remedied if only the characters would just sit down and have an honest talk . . .
Yeah, not gonna happen this time either, is it . . .

Just realized, I guess this means Sev didn't have his whole memory of Iavin stolen by the madghost though huh?

I think the madghost got interrupted by the weird pink magic. But even if he hadn't, I guess Sev has lots of different memories of Iavin (probably all of them bad).

Now jumping into the river doesn't seem like such a bad idea anymore, uh?
And everyone's nearby to watch - and hear!
I love how Xira's thoughts are covered with loud "NO" but the last sentence is not, like he gave up and is thinking at Sev instead of about Sev like he did till now, and what is the point of talking when your thoughts are broadcasted, and it feels all sad and resigned, and, uh, good job I guess NOW I'M SAD BECAUSE OF YOU

So I don't comment on webcomics often, but this page has sparked two theories that I really wanted to share.
1. Sev's memory of Iavin that we saw in the madghost scene had some info on the dude that will turn out to be rather important later on except they don't know what it is 'cause Sev forgot (I mean, it's just as likely that that memory was just for forshadowing, but ya never know)
2. Xira doesn't seem to be working for/helping Iavin against his will, but he doesn't strike me as the type to be okay with someone as cold/selfish/violent as what we've seen of him either. How much does Xira really know about him? Is he about to find out things Iavin doesn't want him to know?

I feel like I should maybe have seen this coming, but somehow A. I didn't realize the guy in Sev's memory was a younger Iavin and B. it never even occurred to me that Xira's mental pen pal might be the only other witch we've met, so I guess not! Wow.
Maybe it's because their personalities (as far as we've seen, which isn't much in Iavin's case) are such complete opposites. Xira's attitude always seems to be that he's going to be helpful to everyone, and Iavin's seems to be that everyone is going to be helpful to him. Not a pair I'd expect to be working together.
But then, we've really only seen Iavin interact (in person) with people he despises - possibly not the best example of his usual behavior. Although if he is/was involved in slave trading, maybe it is? Argh. Now I'm even more curious about him.

My favorite character in another comic just appears to have been killed, and now we find that Xira has apparently been working with/for Iavin?
HMPH, fine then! I'm just gonna go pout in my pouty corner . . .
On the bright side, well done completely surprising me (I knew Xira was working for someone and it was going to be a problem, but was not expecting it to be Iavin at all), and well done too creating characters like both Sev and Xira about whom I care so much!
