- Turning your enemies to slugs is a popular thing for Enchanters. :P

Nick is, will, justifiably angry over this. Hopefully when he buries the hatchet, it's not it Reece's forehead.

She's got a LOT to teach her husband about the way of life for enchanters!

I expect #3 to handle this very well, considering.

It's the whole MIB concept. You tell people the truth, they'll panic, they'll get angry, they'll let emotions drive them. Look at Nick and Peter. THey're hurt about being lied to, but it was to protect them more than anything. The girls just didn't want the big secret driving wedges further between them, aka Will and Sheila.

There will be anger. But there is still love buried in all this.

I know that it's just how Reece is, but I think her whole casual attitude is making this worse.
It would really be best for her to get serious for a moment and really explain the details of her species' rules (especially her appearance before the elders) and what could have happened had she not kept the secret.
But, of course, people don't always do the best thing, especially in emotional situations like this.

So far we've seen shock and anger, now I wonder what emotion Will is going to show us... my guess? I think he's going to just be too happy that Sheila's not cheating on him to care.

@SkunkWitch: not to mention likely a "so THAT'S why your massages are so damn good".... and hugs.. possibly of the "lifting her bodily" kind.

The boys are focusing more on the ways their wives' changing status is going to affect them. It's a shame they can't see how much relief this is to their wives, to be able to share this secret.

There seems to be a five-stages-of-grief thing going on. Peter went through Denial; Nick is full of Anger; I'm hopeful for Will to give in to the truth, and wind up *not* fighting with Sheila but rather hugging her with Acceptance. (Not expecting it, though. Bargaining would be the next in sequence if that trope's in play.) All the guys have been off their natural behavior today.

Speaking of off behavior, everybody try to stay calm and keep your heads on your shoulders IRL today, too. The streets are super busy on this holiday weekend with abnormal weather.

@tazel: Actually the norm is if people are told the consequences and benefits, they generally make fairly good decisions. The trouble comes when people find that the (1) truth has deliberately been hidden from them or (2) when people are told only half truths. Examples: Edward Snowden,(2) any election campaign in the Unite3d States.

Actually, leading in with the MiB might have been a good analogy for the ladies to have used.

@The_Rippy_One: Unfortunately the MIB are currently preoccupied in another comic.
