Interesting look there, Monica...

EDIT: And... "Xfay Ordway?" What's the "FX word"?

EDIT 2: Oh. The "F-word".

Is that an Ursamorph on Atsali's head?

Possibly both of them?

EDIT: I'm over-editing these, but another thing - Monica and Atsali seem to have switch hairstyles...

Ok -- Tina is obviously not at the top of her form, but she got the Avian part right off the bat!

And, the Need Your Help part -- this is going to be Interesting! I wonder if Jaguar Girls can re-assemble Humpty Dumpty souls?

Another sign of progress by Tina. Before she was always careful about the words she used in talking to customers and friends. Even when she did the beat down on Nudge she did not really use profanity. So she is still freaking out over the dream, or whatever it was, she had. Besides she looks really freaked out and uptight in the first panel. Plus she jumped in with that yes almost before Monica finished asking.

Now why do these two want to talk to Tina? From Sali's expression she is not to sure that this is a good idea, if she even knows what Monica wants them to talk to Tina about.

I suspect it may have been in Monica's closet.

And Monica would be the perfect person to talk to when one of your inner demons have gone into hiding. She is, after all, the Demon Shepherd.

Wait a minute....

The famous demon barista, who can read your aura to determine the bestest drink-of-the-moment for you - Can't scan a 15-year-old!?

Unless Atsali is into mealworm tea for breakfast, why can't Tina read her? Can't be cause she's a paranormal, she can read Phix.....

*edit* And re: Atsali's shirt: Not out of the question it was in KATHERINE's closet, after all, she was a college girl once - and possibly with adoptive military parents - and was in the service - yeah, coulda been hers - she was able to come up with a Starbuck costume one Halloween, also.

1. Atsali's Shirt: Wait till she gets ahold of Monica's Magic 8-ball shirt!

2. Winter in Wapsi... Hats do weird things to hair styles. (of course, so do ursamorphs... )

3. Most importantly, What is with Tina's inability to read Atsali? She knows she's is avian, but I fear Tina has lost her ability to read auras... and it's freaking her out. I think she knows she's lost it and she's not okay with it.

It means that somehow Sali's aura is NOT readable by Tina. Maybe because Sali is a siren? Maybe the influence of her father? It could even be because of her being the container for the computer memory for a short time. I lean towards that reason. Having that much info dumped into your head like that has to mess up you aura in some way.

Possibly one twin as the hat, and the other as the jacket? Or maybe as Mon's jacket!

Maybe that's why she can't read the aura - too many bears in the way....

Not sure if she's reading Monica's aura or just relying on past data...

For Monica, it's likely past data.

The bears shouldn't present a problem for Tina. After all, in college she was an Ursa Major.

I'd put something in the pun jar, but it seems to have exploded...

Whoa whoa whoa, can everybody get a grip please? Tina describes Atsali as "avian" so the AuraVision is obviously picking up something. I'm just unsure about why Tina can't decide on what sort of drink Atsali would like.

And I'm pretty sure Mon didn't intend to have Atsali meet Tina for any specific reason, she's just agreeing to meet Tina after work to help Tina out. Atsali need not be involved in that.
