AAAAAUGH Tari as pokemon trainer is adorable! XDXDXD And I love the choices for everybody, so appropriate!
Aw man, Tari, this is why you gotta watch what you say. Poor guy's just looking for acceptance. It IS kinda funny that he did the same bit of judgmentalism on Jonan, tho; seems he's as susceptible to such things as Tari. But anyway, societal issues aside, I wonder where they're going? I am excited to see!

...Y'know, I read it as he was complaining about the healer who turned them away being a jerk.
But your point remains. *g*

Still, Xira didn't say 'erk, a necromancer??' he said 'The necromancer of Rusanne?' o_o; Suggests to me he was reacting to Jonan's very infamous personal reputation, and not a reaction to all necromancers as a whole. I suspect Xira doesn't assume all witches are kindly either, just that all of them shouldn't be judged as a group.
Meanwhile ahh, I want to know what's happening with Sev but I don't want to cut away from this group! Don't suppose we're so lucky that this place is somehow the back door to the temple Sev's making a scene in? ;)
Also wondering if the page number from the book will somehow end up being the address.. o.o

Your point is quite right, but I was just referring to his comment on this page; I forgot he was talking about the healer dude because I had just been thinking about how Jonan has all three life magics.

Ohhhh I see, that makes sense. ..Though now I am waiting for Tareth to lipread whispering people across a room to learn secret intel and Xira being 'how did you know that?' Dunno Tareth, that's kinda creepy!

XD That is an EXCELLENT point! I second this suggestion.

Augg, Tareth, aren't you supposed to be the sensitive one???

I find it insanely adorable that Tareth considers Dr. Dudeperson s mean healer and Jonan a "nice" necromancer... But then, she sort of ruins that pretty smile with the accompanying statement, if I may say.

Well, yeah, she's adorable, but not for that. Because she's speaking in generalities; she might "hypothetically" think her examples are possible without actually considering current characters as being fit for the bill.
Even if she does consider this healer dude to be mean (as opposed to being, say, a coward), she certainly throws a big qualifier at any hint of niceness from Jonan...

You hear that, Xira? You're creepy, but not necessarily mean.

Oh, wow. Can I just say how much I love the art on this page? I'm really blown away right now:
I mean, the atmosphere is fantastic, that slightly dusty, cramped feeling of the city comes across beautifully, the backgrounds are subtle but fantastically detailed even in the closeups, and the close ups are amazing on their own - the expressions, the gestures, the dialogue. Just wow! I could easily imagine this to be a movie, I really could...
Thank you so much for your hard work, the character really, really come to life for me here. :)

Poor Xira, falling victim to the "Everyone should be treated equally and be given a chance, except for _those_ people."
Though assumedly Tari knows little to nothing about witches except what Sev said, about them having "freaky mind powers".

Hey look! It's five pages later and Jonan's face is still scraped! Prophecy of disaster averted!

There is one problem with your vote incentive. Where is Xira's turban?

same place as Sev's loincloth

I heard an orchestra of crickets rehearse for an intensely awkward concert just now.
Dare I ask where Sev's loincloth is? XD I don't suppose he needs it badly as a strange blobby creature, but he might need it... later.

"I heard an orchestra of crickets rehearse for an intensely awkward concert just now."
I may have to steal this quote for my archive now. XD

It hit me when I read this page that he was a witch (I'm a bit slow, I know; I hadn't even paid any attention to his dark eyes when casting; I knew he was reading minds, but had forgotten witches were the ones who did and the discrimination against them). So I decided to re-read it from the beginning.
Serious mistake! I now have runewriters' withdrawal symptoms, and I read this page some half-a-dozen times since.
But I spotted people with the same headband as Xira being asked to get it off before the gates to check they weren't witches. Wonder if he made it through legally.
And I re-read the scene Xira and Tareth met. He really is very nice.
(I guess this all meant: "great comic, thanks!")

YES I AM SO PLEASED TO SEE LOVELY XIRA ON THE CHARACTER PAGE. I'm also not very surprised to see that he's younger than Tareth -- she just seems to look younger than her age but Xira's age fits great.

Also... I laughed out loud when I read what his song is. My mum loves that song.

Comment by Kiri
Heeeeeh. I can't tell if Xira is looking resentful or uncertain in second to last panel. XD
TARETH WOULD BE A GREAT POKEMON TRAINER EXCEPT...oh, well, I guess she can sign commands to her Pokemon, but that might be inconvenient in a battle...
