Yep, Anna mentioned making a doll of Jon as well, but they didn’t consider him as a potential target because he wasn’t around. Well...

Also, a minor thing, but way to step on Gemma’s big gesture, dude.

Panel 1: Ffion spontaneously felt the need to strike a dramatic pose??

Well I say boo to that. Even if this makes nice between them it doesn't solve anything about the key problems of both Seth and Jon caring more about their own happiness than helping each other out and making choices that don't stomp on each other's needs and wants.

Is it Jon's Halloween costume or just Tilly's latest fantasy?

"tries desperately to figure out what I accidentally dressed Jon as*

Just what he wore to Tilly's house, sadly

Hmm, I think I've figured out some good bullshit to "explain" what's going on with that dynamic pose in the first panel. We know that stage illusion is all about the showy gestures and pretty distractions. Maybe the, "real magic," is just as much a matter of dramatic attention-whoring? Even if not, pretending to be showy stage illusionists is probably a useful way to convince people they haven't seen anything that wasn't just cool special effects.

I'm unreasonably fond of the idea of actual magic powers coming from attention-whoring, silly drama, and ridiculously showy/tacky props because of how showy or tacky they are. It's probably a good thing that it isn't actually like that though, because otherwise little kids everywhere playing with glittery costumes and cheesy plastic props would actually have horrifyingly dangerous magic powers.

I do love the idea of magic coming from showmanship and flashy presentation, like if you don't commit to the performance it won't work, so the only people who can use magic are theatre kids

A dangerous power to be giving to theatre kids.
I suppose we should all prepare for the end of the world via musical.

Like we didn't already know it always was going to end that way. MUSICALS ARE DANGEROUS!

Don't forget the con artists, the high pressure salesmen, the rabble rousing axe grinders, the religious people, the hopelessly over-privileged twits, and the people who believe in something wrong so hard that....

I'm no longer fond of this idea.
