Ahhhh thanks for answering Kory! Must be tough having a love life as a Nixie. If you want to give someone a kiss you probably have to watch the weather forecast very carefully.
And yeah, probably should’ve guessed about the unturned thing. The masquerade wouldn’t last 20 minutes if every kiss at the beach made your paramour Finny
What if someone gets a kiss before leaving a shop and some bratty kid drops a water balloon on their head?
What if he was shopping for beverages and takes a (leaky) sip even BEFORE he leaves the shop …
Heck, what if he DROOLS on himself a bit??
Lol, I think the water balloon trick might work, if it was big enough, but it seems the person needs to get drenched to turn finny. After all, Meriel pushed Jim into the river, she didn’t just splash him with water. And right in the question she talks about getting caught in a storm, so it seems to require quite a bit of water. :)
It makes me wonder, from what Jim says in the Nixie Spit arc (specific page linked below) if barkeeps hate this joke, since it would require getting a patron (or 2, or 3) absolutely soaked. I bet it’s a pain to clean up after.
Hi Kory! I love and cherish Gabe, and it makes me so happy that they use They pronouns. Are there any other trans and/or nonbinary characters in the skin deep gang? :>
(Omg they look so cuuuute in this answer!)
Q: Since (turned) Nokks probably know they eventually kinda go bestial, do most of them like… plan for that? Try and recognize the signs and get their affairs in order before they basically turn into sea monsters?
Maybe there are meds for the condition? Or care facilities? I doubt the communities would allow their Nokks to roam the seaside ripping people up– talk about a way to get outed! And now *I’m* curious too…..
I know they’re not really in any myths but almost every fantasy setting has slimes. Are there any in the Skin Deep universe, as species or as pets?
Man, now I have mental images of a crazed prankster running around on a rainy day and shooting random humans with a squirtbottle of nixie-spit! O_O!!! The poor things’d transform and flop around on the pavement while everybody gawked; then they’d end up in a lab somewhere. And the prankster’d go on their merry way, having caused all sorts of horrible havoc in his or her victims’ lives. NOT a pretty picture…..
I think (I HOPE) that wouldn’t work.
Every example we’ve seen so far of folk getting nixie-spittified involves them actually having it in their mouth (I’m assuming swallowing is part of that, but I’m not pretending to be an expert). Like Jim and his buddies spiking people’s drinks with it, and Merial kissing Jim.
That said, I now really want to see what kind of consequences would be visited upon a certain unnamed sassy glastig if she spiked Alec’s drink with the stuff and doused him one night. We already know what bugbears look like on nixie spit (the phrase “deep-sea bugbear” comes to mind) but how would he retaliate, especially since she’s officially a “person of interest”?
While not specifically Alec, I hope this RQ from 2017 gives you enough visual detail to get by with.

Now considering Bugbears LIKE being scary, something that makes them MORE scary, and Alec’s attitude, Alec would likely be pestering Lily to do it to him again.
Kory, really impressed with the Bojack Horseman sketches. Could we please see your characters in the Bob’s Burgers style?
If someone rips off another’s medallion what happens? do they revert back to their full form? or do they become stuck in what ever form they were in before they lost the medallion?
OK, here’s a question I bet nobody has considered.
What happens when one Colin James Finn (who always has WATER about him thanks to Ravi’s “blessing”) imbibes Nixie Spit?
