I believe the term is “hanging a lantern on it” when you point out the hackneyed turn of events.
It kinda reminds me of the episode of Futurama with the space bees.
The correct term is “hanging a lampshade”. You were close, though.
Emus actually have two feathers on each quill.
It was not an emu. :U
The only place where she would have yanked an ostrich feather recently would have been at the zoo… which was who knows how long ago in comic days.
Plus, I’m pretty sure she’d remember putting it there. Strange though, though it was a dream, it turns out that it didn’t end any of the ways I thought it would, nor with Peanut waking her up.
Remember, in most comics time itself is at a standstill, though events still happen. More likley, it was just their dad. Or peanut.
In fact, skip that time junk
Yanked a feather from Pete. Sweet refrence tot he A Nightmare on Elm St. series! Which by the by is my all time favorite horror series.
Same here and Friday the 13th. ^^
Get out of my brain, Charles!
Hehehe… I think it’s funny how she’s still surprised, even though she saw the “implement from the dream” coming… Almost as if she didn’t believe herself.
On the feather… maybe Peanut put it there to hide for safe keeping… This’ll still be interesting to see where it goes.
Lol, all the “it was a dream” cliche’s in a row.
I hate it when writers use that particular cop-out, but I love how it is satirised this strip!
Grapes constant sarcasm is great to witness, as is the moment she actually finds the feather.
…OR IS IT?
heh, only sumthing SO ironic could happen to Grape. lol that is sum big feather. i wonder wut mischievious things people(animals) could do with sumthing so soft, huge, and ticklish when u put it lightly against sum1’s face. *sneaks into parents’ room while their sleeping*
Lots of comments already! Anyway, yeah, this is awesome. I love the lighting for this one. ^.^
Heehee, cliche, but nice. XD
Big feather. o3o
Grape: …Um… Me: Oops.. did i leave that there? sorry ill have to take that back. *Just kidding* I don’t have feathers, I have Scales. anyway… thats cool. im begging to wonder if it was fake or if it was real… all too confusing.. a circle of endless possibilities I Suppose… I kinda was wishing it be “real” in the comic but I guess I might have to wait to see any sort of thing like that happen… Oh well. *goes to his cave*
Awww, I was hoping….oh well, other realms ARE in our dreams after all!
Perhaps in her next dream, Grape will wander into the realm of the night-gaunts, be taken in as a guest in the Temple of Cats at Ulthar, or even tempt fate with the crawling chaos, Nyarlathotep itself.
Cookies if you know what that’s from.
Genre savviness suits Grape so well.
LOL i knew it was all a dream!! i just knew it!! XD
I wonder if the feather had anything to do with the wonderful zoo arc earlier :3
IT’S A COP-OUT! Erm… dream! Yeah….
what unforseen end.
The cop-out joke is great xD
that’s a mighty big chicken feather…
WHAT’S A COP OUT???!!!
google is your friend…
It’s just another way of saying that Rick doesn’t want to take responsibility for or committing to just this plot.
Don’t you just love waking up to find a huge feather in your hand? … At least she discovered that Peanuts lessons in Akkadian were real…
I just wanted to tell you that you’re brilliant. Keep up the good work.
Heheh, I kinda figured it was a dream.
eh, didnt like drawing the griffin did you, so you just got rid of it(nicely i might add, dont want to hurt it’s feelings)
Actually I loved drawing the griffin
“Cop out – I mean dream!”
Smooth one, Rick.
…Hey, I *just* realised your last name is Griffin. ><
Ehn… I think I’ll just call him Griffin, or Admin… or Admin Griffin if I want to get all… wordy…
A-a-a-a-nd… Fini. Great way to end this particular story arc, specially with the feather.
A pleasant dream while it lasted!
Note to self: master lucid dreaming
I so expected it being a dream but the feather is a BIG throw off. Why is it Grape always finds such interesting things!
And what will peanut say about the feather hmm?
Can’t wait for the next comic!
grape, it’s defently an “or is it”
umm.. >.> *giggles* =3
Well, could’ve been worse. =P She could have had one of “those dreams” about Peanut. And that would be just awkward, wouldn’t it?
