Thanksgiving

Vampires should never be in charge of Thanksgiving dinner...

(I had originally planned for this to be a traditional piece, before deciding to color it digitally, which is why you guys see my ugly handwriting in the word bubbles for a change, LOL.)

Because this is Tess and Jay’s first Thanksgiving without their mom, Ethan's determined to make it THE BEST EVER for them. His cooking skills have always been pretty basic, though, and they've become even rustier as a vampire, since he no longer needs to cook for himself, sooooo...this was dumb, needless to say. Baptiste is no help, either, since he's been a vampire much longer than him. (And he even tried to warn Ethan how bad of an idea this was. Shame on you for ignoring him, Ethan.)

And no, going to a relative's isn't an option. Ethan and Lilibeth used to do that for Thanksgiving, but during his first year as a vampire, too many nosy family members were all, “Why isn’t Ethan eating?! Ethan should eat something. YOU’D LOOK LESS ILL IF YOU ATE SOMETHING, ETHAN.” So…it just became easier for them to stay home and do their own thing. Ethan’s too stubborn to drag his kids to a relative’s, at this point!

  1. I'd be pretty lost too, if I had to prepare such a meal. Perhaps they should have ordered in. Heh.

    1. I had actually planned to draw a part two for this, which would've shown how Ethan "solved" the problem, but with my computer dying in September, and then my dog dying in October...I never got around to it. Maybe next year!

      And heh, yeah, I'd have no idea how to prepare a meal like this, either! XD

  2. I wouldn't know where to start. But they can simplify it a bit, maybe? Don't vampires eat meat raw?

    1. My vampires only drink blood. And because this meal is for Ethan's very human kids, I don't think they'd appreciate raw meat for Thanksgiving! :P

  3. Ha! I love the line, "Vampires should not be in charge of Thanksgiving dinner." Funny! (Maybe I should say I'm a vampire so I don't have to cook the Thanksgiving dinner! :))

    1. LOL! The only downside to that is that you wouldn't be allowed to eat any of the Thanksgiving meal, either, since everyone would expect you to just drink blood! XD

  4. Heh. Heh. Thanksgiving dinner always has its challenges, doesn't it?

    1. Even if it didn't, almost everything ends up turning into a challenge for Ethan! XD

    1. More than impossible, for vampires! Ethan and Baptiste should never be allowed in a kitchen... XD

    1. Thanks so much! ^_^

      And LOL, I've had so many people criticize my handwriting over the years that it's always surprising whenever anyone compliments it instead! XD

  7. Ethan could just go to Walmart and get a rotisserie chicken and call it turkey. ;)
