Sorry, my mind is dirty, but that double-entendre by Sev in the last panel is cracking me up! XD

Me at panel 1: Oh, I didn't see it coming. Moonwolves? Oh, they're not human traffickers after all, they probably only mean to "fix" them (whether the result would please the prisoners remains to be seen, but the intention is good).
Me at panel 3: Oh, I didn't see it coming. They're trying to use them as magical fuel for some magic thing?
Me at panel 4: ... not surprised.

A shapeshifter changes also odor? That shouldn't be surprising, but I hadn't thought about it.

Sev mentioned it in passing back on page 5.12 -- I don't know if it'll help Jonan's, uh, situation, but he at least won't smell like he's a human!!

No Jonan, you don't smell like you are a corpse, just like you, I dunno, roll around in them or something! Or let one sleep draped over your legs or something!

I just noticed in the cast section... Jonan's on'y 29? Is he just emaciated because everyone tries to poison him just for being a natural born necromancer and he's afraid to eat anything? Or is being so close to a rotting pet pony making him ill?

Jonan was "ridiculously thin" as I recall (rollover text of page 2.24 ballparks him at 90lbs). To compound things, due to a double miscast his mouth is fused shut. He hasn't eaten anything or had a drink in couple of days.

To compound it futher, Jonan also got grabbed by a life-draining abberant back when they first met.

Not sure people try to poison him often, but his servants say he isn't really well liked.

When he hasn't got his mouth sealed shut, I think he maybe just doesn't take a lot of interest in eating compared to his studies.

Jonan is absolutely aged beyond his years (Sev assumed he was much older) -- though he hasn't really elaborated on why that is!

Necromancers aren't particularly hated the same way witches are -- like, raising zombies doesn't make you very popular, but it wouldn't be reason to poison someone. Jonan himself has a lot of enemies, but that's more because of his winsome personality and questionable actions than his particular brand of magic.

I am suddenly thinking of Sylphie from the conjurer quest line in Final Fantasy 14, Aember's mentioning of Jonan being powerful enough to resurrect the dead, and mention before that of an injured woman who was said to have died, but maybe not...? I think I see what you're doing. X3

Sev sometimes reminds me of one of those D&D characters who only does two things, but has managed to work out a way to solve nearly every problem using one of those two things. We've actually seen very few situations he couldn't get out of by either turning into a dragon or turning into a squirrel.

Welcome back, and I hope you're both recovering well!

(Also are they talking about Neiunthei, are we going to find out more about Neiunthei, oh gosh why am I this excited about someone who's only showed up on about three pages so far)

D-Dragon Jonan? more squirrel Jonan? I don't see how squirrel Jonan would ruin his clothes, so I'm crossing my fingers for dragon Jonan :D

I'm just hoping Sev isn't dumb enough to try that aberrant shape change that started his troubles on Jonan. XD

Well last time Sev turned Jonan into a squirrel ( http://runewriters.com/index.php?c=210 ) in the pages after that we see Jonan sewing a rip in his clothing

so, you know, completely believable for Sev

(and the coat he's sewing up on that page is the coat he was wearing in Chapter 2; the one that got a bit ripped up by grabby vines! He just wanted something to do other than stare at everyone else's food,,,)

I don't know if I ever said it here, but one of the reasons why I am still following this comic despite the delays (other than that it is really cool), is that you are always very upfront and honest about them, Shazz. Even if you keep the updates relatively vague (understandable for your privacy!), you still keep us updated and let us know that there will be a delay/hiatus and also when we can expect a new update. And you keep delivering on your promises. So I just want to thank you for being so transparent with us readers and being reliable. I hope you have luck with the car stuff and also that you and your grandmother will fully recover very soon!
