(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!
