"A messy situation that worked itself out neatly? in MY comic?!"
It's less likely than you think.

"Wear your pajamas to work day," is a harassment incident waiting to happen. I should know, having mostly been the sexual harassment victim when trying it as both a coder and a musician. And they never let anyone go naked or wearing only their underwear, even if they don't own pajamas. (Yes, I have noticed how these two problems irreconcilably point in opposite directions.)

I'm tempted to make up a conspiracy theory about it being a scheme by the garment industry to combat nudism.

We had "pyjama days" at school and no one wore their actual pyjamas, most people bought pyjamas specially because it was always a competition at my school. Honestly uniforms are great in that way.

Ouch, I get it. The childhood hierarchy posturing games really weren't much less awful than the adult ones, and often could be worse.

Jamafan, hmm. Why is it Jon that's embarrassed about that name and not "Sesil?" Jon's been failing at training his Seth if he can't get that under control.

I would say it's a little bit funny how Tilly and Jon probably suffered more from Seth's drunken excess than he did. But meh, Jon usually deserves it, even when he didn't cause the mess. In this case the reason is that Jon could have easily done a better job preparing against the night time disturbances. Unless he seriously tried?

Jon hasn't gone by Jonny since he was twelve and he can't get Seth to stop calling him that either, so good luck lol

As a fascinated, anthropological student of brother-brother relations I might suggest he could try calling Seth, "Sammy," every time Seth calls him, "Jonny," to train it out of him. But, that could lead to an escalation of the obnoxious names. Or, worse, Seth might like it, accept it as a fair price for calling him Jonny, and end up with a permanent increase in the number of obnoxious nicknames Seth likes.

Has he done a serious, feasibility sturdy on professionally-assisted fratricide?

Funnily enough, Seth does have a similar "I can't pronounce your name because I'm three" nickname that Jon could use, but generally doesn't, because I honestly think Jon likes the nickname, but doesn't like being called it in front of other people. Jamafan and Seffy are family-only pet names.

Oh man, the whole "I'm not going to be here when they're here" thing. This never works out well. No, Jon, you did NOT come out of this unscathed, not by a long shot. Especially since it's your brother, and she doesn't live there.

On the positive, it'll be fun to watch the whole thing blow up in Jon's face. Sorry Jamafan.

Yeah, it's one of those things that sounds like a compromise, but never actually works.

I suppose we have to wait and see how it goes. This could be one of the cracks in the relationship leading to its eventual shattering. It could also be the thing that leads Tilly into getting them shacked up in their own love shack, free to intensify the possessive clinging tendencies into a dangerously codependent, friend-stripping, prison phase of the relationship. Perhaps neither if Jon's lucky, but who are we kidding?
