'Weird snake romance.' So says the guy with horns, a skeletal tail, tentacles instead of fingers and a propensity for running around naked! Poor Xira, whatever else he is up to he still just wants to be seen as a good guy.
The vote incentive: I have to admit, I'd wondered about things like, em, durability. Makes sense that sewing skills would be useful. And how does a zombie pony look so cute?

look if tareth started reading a romance about a guy w tentacle hands and a skeletal tail SEVERIAN WOULD THINKT THAT'S WEIRD TOO
re: the vote incentive -- Necropony has been around for a long time! but as to cuteness, neither I nor Jonan are really sure

First I was disappointed that there wasn't a Christmas filler. Then I relized we got an actual update! Woo-hoo!
Okay Jonan, your "I'm so much cooler than these loosers" eye-rolling high horse gets quickly degraded to a necropony if you are sewing while doing it.
When will Sev tell Jonan to STOP SEWING AROUND? 8D Oh and when Jonan gets tired of it, Sev can just say "Sorry, dude, I'll stop telling you jokes. My LIPS ARE SEALED."
Jonan is thinking in the 1st panel "SEW YOU, dumb merchant!"
I wanted to ask how Jonan manages to sigh with sealed lips, but I remembered that I too have mastered the nose-sigh a long time ago.

YEAH I'm basically counting the Tapastic holiday update as my Christmassy episode this year xD I DONT HAVE TIME TO MAKE MORE
IDK MAN, while it's an unconventional hobby for a necromancer I don't think sewing is by any stretch inherently uncool....... though you, uh, probably could raise an eyebrow at his Hot Topic Style™ when you realise he's making all these clothes for himself

I'm not judging sewing. I don't think any hobby is "lame". But admittedly there are some things that are "traditionally" considerd cooler than others, like playing the guitar or playing sportsball. Sewing is neither very masculine nor very "hip and rad". I personally don't care, and think that sewing is very practical, especially in a pseudo-medieval setting.
But I found it ironic that he is eyerolling so hard at sappy romance... while sewing his evil necromancer costume. :)

Jonan's reaction is my reaction to every romance. XD

I'm definitely interpreting Jonan's eyerolling to be directed at what Tareth said about Willows instead of romance. Since he is part Willow, right?

jonan is not part mythical snake-monster, no; he's fully human. (He's not fully Varænski, though -- no Varænski person has ever gotten that tall!)

I love how so many responses are divided between "Jonan is me" and "I'd read that book" xD

Okay but regarding Jonan rolling his eyes, I just realized on a re-read that not only is he listening to blushing teens talk about beloved trashy snake romances, but also from the perspective of being well aware the witch teen is all super smoothly being like 'so mind powers sure do get a bad rap, y/y?'
Jonan is stuck with his mouth shut in a state of perpetually just avoiding doom, and this is what he has to work with... I love it.
