Interesting timbit (or tidbit for the non-canucks) of info in the commentary about there being a sensation felt when casting a spell.

Also this is definitely the reaction I was thinking of when I commented in the previous strip that Dan didn't need to give us any heads up that "Felix" would like being transformed.

Also, I'm pretty certain Dan named Felix that on purrrpose. ;)

Felix the Cat was my first thought too.

Yeah, I assume that, and was going to rip on it until I finished reading his comment at the bottom

Someone stop me before this spins off into a third storyline focusing on these two.

Just give them their own comic.  Put it in sketchbook and do it once a week.  "Adventures of Kitty and Felix, they are wonderful cats."

So how does Felix explain this to the family?  How long will the transformation last?  Did the transformation also give Felix super maid powers?  Will she do windows?

And if so, which builds? Windows 95? Windows 98? Windows ME? Windows 7 through 10 only? Or... *gasp* Windows 3.11 for Workgroups?

Strangely enough, I was expecting them both to act this way. The difference is, last Friday, I was expecting them to have reversed reactions.(with Kitty reacting like Felix, and Felix being the first random guy[who was only introduced Monday, btw] that freaks out from their sudden, out-of-place transformation)

So Felix's reaction to the transformation seems quite similar to Tedd's reaction to discovering "extra-girly mode".

I wasn't dissing it! I was being nostalgic.

I don't know ... the version that came with OS/2 Warp 3.0 worked pretty well ...

Please, I remember Microsoft Bob.

Back to the actual subject of this thread, wouldn't Akiko be the perfect witness to this? Akiko is pretty likely to know about Nanase's magic, but she's also good at keeping her mouth shut about anything that might upset her mother. Or maybe her father too, although in over fifteen years of EGS he's had exactly one comic where he talked. I was kind of thinking he was actually dead and stuffed. Anyway, it would plant yet another potential plot hook for the main storyline.

That depends on where Akiko is right now. It's been how many minutes since her encounter with Rhoda? Twenty? Thirty?

Now I should wait and see if Kitty will give in right away

If we DID get that third storyline, I honestly wouldn't complain.

If this two strips are example how it would go, I would be complaining about pacing. Unless they get naked. Which they probably will, so there shouldn't be any problem.

Unless Akiko is actually spying on Nanase for Mrs. Kitsune ...

Regarding her father, it's good Edward Verres explained there will be no true undead in EGS. Otherwise, I would suspect he is dead and raised by Mrs. Kitsune.

Either he is living on his own (or with other students) or when he will realize he needs to return home he will take back that "don't change me back". Sure, Dunkels might be able to handle this, but I don't think there will be second family like them.

Really, this is something Dan should have though in advance. Considering how  both Tedd and Catalina totally failed to notice transforming ... although, maybe you only feel something when you cast on someone else?

In the case of Tedd, it might work differently, like those flashes of light and the hyperness. But as Dan said if it feels like a slight chill, it might go unnoticed under many circumstances. Kitty was in one of those circumstances where she was seeing the enchantment take place the moment she said "POOF" and felt the chill so she could quickly put two and two together. When Catalina changed the first time, it does look like she felt something, but likely attributed it to Rhoda cuddles.

Hmmm ... yes. Tedd being exception might also work, it's true Catalina might miss-attributed it ...

A frightening thought: If Time Travel literally is the only thing believed to be impossible with Magic, then it might be that bringing the dead back to life IS possible. Edward did say that classical Zombie-type undead can't happen, but that may be more about the "spreads like an infection" part than about the "undead minions of a Necromancer" part--although from what we know about EGS-world magic, it's probably simpler to use summoned golems than to raise corpses if you need an army, so raising a dead person would only be worthwhile if you have need of that particular individual.

It would have to be something that alter's the mind that creates zombies, similar to werewolves except obviously different forms.

"Classic" Zombies don't actually require the resurrected person's original mind, just the animated corpse capable of carrying out generic commands. That's pretty much why I said that golems would be better for "faceless minions" duty--you don't need it to have a human-level mind of its own.

Hmmmm ... re-reading what he actually said, it was basically that you can't expect reliability from dead and animated tissue.  Meaning, it may actually be worth it to "raise dead" by putting "dead person" (soul, mind, whatever) into golem or somehow preserved body (mummy). Mr. Kitsune don't look as mummy, however ...

Meanwhile, the aberrations/vampires are not actually dead.
