    Ok, so, Tarot and the dragon ARE separate entities

    • Rick Griffin

      Which is precisely what I’ve said about a dozen times

      • Lupin the Vapour

        Well, I’m fairly sure it was only twelve times. But that’s just me.

        • Mettlebird

          …a dozen times is the same as twelve times, lawlz.

          • Lupin the Vapour

            Thanks for clearing that one up. Guess I was a bit confused for a sec, there.

          • tarotf

            i see what you did there

      • Valerio

        shouldn’t have been that obvious the moment the dragon said ‘Tarot is my avatar’? :?

        • Vlad the Cat

          ok… then whats the meaning of ‘avatar’ in this comic then.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It’s not giant blue cat people, that’s for sure.

          • Valerio

            I appreciate your wisdom, Argent :)

          • Vlad the Cat

            haaaay i didnt mean it that way :I
            nvm then..

          • Argent Stonecutter

            OK, how about a flyboy?

          • anon_omis

            How did you do that Agent?

          • FreakazoidVocaloid

            In general, an avatar is a representation of something else, or a secondary body. The term “avatar” in this comic lines up more closely with Hindu beliefs, which name an avatar as the descent of a deity to earth in another form. It’s safe to say that most people and animals would find gryphons, nine-tailed foxes and huge dragons rather surprising, so they use something inconspicuous.

            I do have to wonder though… There’s Pete, the Great Kitsune, and the Spirit Dragon. The avatars they’ve chosen are Human Pete, Tarot, and… Sabrina???

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Do what?

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            FreakazoidVocaloid is making guesses as to who each diety has as an avatar, even though human pete is a disguise, not an avatar, and Great Kitsune, being the game master, doesn’t have an avatar.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            and now I realize you were addressing anon_omis, and now the answer is that he was asking how you altered your avatar to include a flight helmet.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I was responding to anon_omis. :)

            I agree, Pete doesn’t have an avatar. He was trying to get King as his avatar, but that hasn’t happened. Whether foxface has an avatar (or avatars) or not is unknown.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            he wasn’t even at the game table while the other two were playing.

            see the first panel.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            PS, check out my blog.

          • werekitty13

            Actually, I think anon_omis was reffering to your changing avatars between posts… how?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Golly!

          • Mettlebird

            basically, the meaning of “avatar” in this is the physical representation of a spiritual being, whom in essense, is unlike that of any mortal creature, thus causing them to have to take on another creature’s shape and form, hence an “avatar” is created, which is basically a puppet of physical relevance of a spiritual entity in this case.

          • Z-Zman

            what?

          • MavrosNytcha

            speaking of avatars, I finally figured out how to get one

      • Lance

        indeed you have….some people just take time to realize it. X3

    • Thoth

      That one was firmly established some time ago… Personally I agree with Peanut. Why ARE they in an elevator?

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        maybeh it’s ah big house

        • Vlad the Cat

          What they meant is why there is electricity there. Really.. Why ?

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            cuz sabrina’s magic, duh! :P

          • Snowmon

            The snow melted by now, and so the power must be back by now. ect. ect. ect.

          • Snowmon

            Oh, yes. Magic too. Duh.

          • Vlad the Cat

            ”Magic powers activate!”

            Also, probably tarot, not sabrina

          • netherwolf

            Or maby they have a backup generator somewhere in the house

          • Lupin the Vapour

            Or maybe they PSYCH UP the elevator! Get it? Psych.. because they’re.. yea… I’ll go over here and be quiet….

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            o.o………….. oh ai get it! :3

          • Argent Stonecutter

            The elevator is powered by the portable fusion generator they need for the flux capacitor.

          • Salenstormwing

            Magical elevators are magical. Now why it plays muzak still, that’s an unsolvable mystery!

          • A New Housepets! fan

            Hey, maybe they are like the Protos in Starcraft (whoops, geeked out again)

          • A New Housepets! fan

            Maybe they are like the Protos in starcraft

          • Expletive Deleted

            The elevator isn’t powered by electricity. It powered by the lost souls of the underworld…

            What? It’s… possible.

          • Masterkev

            Ooooooh, I get what she meant. Why IS there music in the elevator – so strange…. :P

            (That was sarcasm, yes i know it was about the electricity)

          • Critter Rhode

            And here I thought it was powered by a slinky.

        • XAV TAY TOR TOT

          YOU MUST CONSTRUCT ADDITIONAL PENTAGRAMS

      • JB

        and which way are they heading? Up? Down? Sideways?

        • Vlad the Cat

          Diagonally ! or zig-zags…

          • Vlad the Cat

            no.. Sadly its just down xD

          • Mettlebird

            o rly now? >:3

        • Valerio

          hmm *points at comic title*
          Down..?

          • Vlad the Cat

            thats… what i said -.-”

          • JB

            How could I missed reading the title!? > .<;;;
            Oh yeah, I was really tired. Thanks Valerio and Vlad.

        • rtlstien

          Must be the elevator from Willie Wanka

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            Wonka. Wanka is a whole different thing, especially in Britain.

    • Mettlebird

      in a physical sense, yes. but in a spiritual sense, no. They are bound by spirit, due to the fact that Tarrot is in fact a figure of what the Dragon is spiritually, but put into a physical form in order to properly communicate with the lower-beings. also known as mortals. They are not seperate “entities,” though, because an entity can in fact have more than one form. what Tarrot is, is basically a puppet through which the dragon can communicate and do all of the things that mortals would do. When in fact, yes, they are separate, they also are one and the same. (deep, i know. xD)

      • Foxstar

        Did you even read what Rick said?

      • darkgloomie

        I think that the Avatar here kinda work like the Angels’ in Supernatural: the angels and their vessels are different beings, however the angels can interact with the world (without screwing it up) by possessing certain people. Unlike demons, who don’t care who they possess, angels need explicit consent from their hosts to use their bodies.

        • Spoofmaster

          This sounds about right. Tarot =/= Dragon because a.) Rick says so (and I think he would know) and b.) Pete was trying to get King as an avatar, and I doubt the “benevolent” rules of the game would allow him to turn King into nothing more than a meat puppet. My guess is that the Dragon communicates with Tarot in some way and provides her with assistance and Tarot enacts her will as best she can in return. Then if the Dragon needs to, she can possess Tarot with Tarot’s consent for short periods. Think of it this way – what’s the point of playing a game with low order beings on the board rather than inanimate objects if the low order beings are just puppets and don’t act on their own?

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          I like that comparison. I was trying to think of an example of the way I think it works, and I feel stupid for nit thinking of that one.

  2. zero159

    Elevator rides are so boring.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      unless it gots a disco ball and strobe light in it ;3

      • Lupin the Vapour

        Which would make it the most epic elevator in the history of elevators. If you know of one like this, I will gladly travel just to ride in it.

      • Tha Housedog

        …Which would give my mom a seizure. :/
        In all seriousness, I would definitely love to see ^an elevator do that. Anything is better than elevator music. >_<

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          except for Justin Bieber :)

          • SamBlob

            Wot’s the difference?

          • Blaze

            I won’t shoot myself if i hear elevator music in an elevator…

          • netherwolf

            Elevator music rlz xD

      • Mettlebird

        but the strobe light wouldn’t be fun if you had epilipsy.

      • Mavros

        I would press ALL the buttons if I saw that in an elevator

    • WingedWolfGirl

      No, Elevator rides are awkward.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        only if you don’t know the people with whom you are in the elevator.

  3. Delta Pangaea

    Is this first or was I ninja’d?

    Alt Text: Okay obviously I divided your attention here — My bad

    • Vlad the Cat

      Thanks for the alt! But i didnt get it :/

      • Vlad the Cat

        oh i get it now, nvm x3

        • LEGOZONE

          I didn’t get it… :(

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            Sabrina is saying that she should have mentioned the dragon before taking him to the elevator if she wanted a reaction to the dragon. as it stands, he’s too distracted by the elevator to notice what she said.

          • Z-Zman

            how does the elevator work-is what is going on in Peanut’s heads. just think, what will get your attention: an elevator that works in a power out, or a person who speaks to spirits every day and suddenly mentions a dragon.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            why would you need to ask how an elevator is working when the people running said elevator can use magic?

          • Z-Zman

            So why can’t she just power the whole neighborhood, and put a special force field to shield from the snow.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            It doesn’t work that way. well, it does, but the spirits hate it.

          • Z-Zman

            but the more they help, the more their re-birth in there new life will be better…I think…

          • A New Housepets! fan

            Weren’t these thing must be done while they were still living? I mean with all that carma stuff?

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            true. if they’re spirits, they are just rebirth row inmates, waiting for karmic retribution to come.

  4. Dissension

    Oh, Peanut, so affably oblivious. <3

    Also, I like that there's elevator music. *giggles*

  5. sonic id furreh!!!

    oh peanut :3
    but sabrina shoulda seen dat comming X3

    • Valerio

      That’s PEANUT, foh ya!

  6. Vlad the Cat

    lol peanut, you always make my day

  7. Asteri

    also, electricity back?

  8. Lupin the Vapour

    Wait.. isn’t the power out? So how does the elevator… Never mind. I forgot who I was talking about for a sec.

    • Leinad

      magic.

  9. Alex M.

    I was actually wondering, Why an elevator?

    • Lupin the Vapour

      But then, you got to remember. WE knew about the dragon. PEANUT on the other hand, has not been informed whatsoever.. that we know of, at least. (Or that I remember)

      • Alex M.

        Yes all we know about the Dragon, but my question is, How big is that house to have an elevator?

        • Lupin the Vapour

          More than one floor. We still don’t know if their owner is disabled. I don’t think.

        • zeroslash

          It could be going down, hence the name.

          • Lupin the Vapour

            And now I feel dumb because I JUST now noticed that.. after you pointed it out to me… ^.^’

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Big enough for the dragon, and the batcave (for batbat).

    • JB

      Teleportation circles can’t beat elevator music I guess. *shrugs*

      • Aoki

        What about Transmutation circles?

        • JB

          I think you need to sacrifice someone’s blood to make it work. That’s dangerous.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            not really. you only need to lose something of equal value to that which you wish to gain that is the law of equivalent exchange.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Nice avatar.

  10. Russiarules1

    I have to say, I love elevator music… and Queen, also The Beatles, Weird Al and others.
    For some reason, Peanut reminds me of Max, my sister’s dog… I miss Max

  11. Leafy

    lol ah peanut. your funny :D

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Somehow I imagine that is exactly what a dog would say about excitement.

  12. BlueAnubis

    He is one seriously happy pup. I love how he’s just dancing to the elevator music.

    Seriously though, why are they in an elevator?

    • Naylorfan90

      Rule of Funny?

  13. WyldKAT

    Oh yay. Do we get to learn more about the whole celestial D&D crew?

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      it’s actually the U&U crew :P

      • silverfang16

        Only in a simply sense so WE may comprehend it. ^_^

  14. IceKitsune

    lol Peanut just doesn’t care at all about Dragon

    • Vlad the Cat

      He was just distracted by something more misterious ! …or obvious

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Spirits, dragons, it’s all astral to him.

    • silverfang16

      He should, he helped release one of them. The most horrible one.

  15. xhunterko

    Almost every time I see elevator jokes I think about that looney toons episode of baby daffy duck in an elevator.
    “Elevator go down the hole” He says every time he pushes the button. And the occupants get smashed on the cieling or floor. I also have to wonder when Peanut will start to think he’s hallucinating.

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      it was a tiny toons episode about baby Plucky,actually.

    • Aoki

      My mother used to LOVE baby plucky. She’d watch tiny toons just to see him stick something in the toilet to say “water go down the hoooole”

  16. netherwolf

    Don’t know it for sure,but i think,Tarrot and Sabrina live in quite a cool house,since it has an elivator,and who knows what secrets lie in the upper chambers.

    • netherwolf

      Oops..I mean the downer chambers..didn’t see that it’s “Going Down” ..sry

      • Lupin the Vapour

        Downer Chambers… That sounds like a depressing place to be. XD (I’m just full of terrible, terrible jokes tonight…)

      • A New Housepets! fan

        Lower chambers :) and i am guessing some sort of portal, either magic one or something hi-tech mojo-made variance

      • Naylorfan90

        Downer Chambers? That sounds like the name of a bad Metal band…

        XD

      • netherwolf

        Everybody’s a comedian..

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        downer chambers, I don’t even know her.

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          hopefully this is not too inappropriate.

          • Lupin the Vapour

            I don’t know how inappropriate it is, but it made me lawl regardless.

      • A New Housepets! fan

        Leave the guy alone! He made a misspell so big deal …

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          not exactly a misspelling, but I know what you mean. I’m okay with poking’ fun at him because if I messed up, I’d make fun of myself. also, my comment could easily have been applied to “lower chambers” as well, so I’m not even actually poking fun at his mistake.

        • A New Housepets! fan

          wasn’t talking about anyone in particular

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I know, you were addressing all of us, so I was defending myself.

      • netherwolf

        Chill guys..I didn’t meen to be harsh,it’s just that i had a long day and sort of a “problem”,if you know what i mean.

        • anon_omis

          no i dont know what you mean

          • netherwolf

            never mind,the good thing is it’s over ;) (the day i mean)

  17. Vlad the Cat

    Serious peanut face in the last panel

    • netherwolf

      Yeah,but they are so cute in panel 3 ;3

      • Lupin the Vapour

        AGREED!

      • Vlad the Cat

        Yep

      • Pokeblue

        Indeed.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        indubitably ^_Q

        • anon_omis

          Right-o! ^_Q

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            quite ^_Q

    • Valerio

      Sabrina in panel 4 = SCRITCHABLE chest

      • Chip Uni

        G’night, folks!

      • A New Housepets! fan

        Sabrina in panel 4 … wait just a second… isn’t she “mad” at anyone for a first time, for i don’t remember he showing that side of her anywhere in the comic

  18. Elwood Blutarsky

    Ah yes well the dragon and…OH MY GOODNESS. What does their owner do that requires an elevator? And is that a generic instrumental version of “Girls from Ipanema” on the speaker?

    • Lupin the Vapour

      Wait.. how would you know what the song was? Are you.. are you a GOD?!? v^Wide awestruck eyes^v

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        No I was making a Blues Brothers joke *points to name*

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          And I may have just walked into a Ghostbusters one. Everyone clear your minds!

          • Lupin the Vapour

            I just thought of something that he couldn’t POSSIBLY hurt us with…

          • Naylorfan90

            What I find really hilarious about this whole conversation is that the Blues Brothers and the Ghostbusters share a guy. XD

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Speaking of which, today’s Groundhog Day.

          • anon_omis

            Ok, if Bill Murry is here, make sure we keep Columbis away

          • anon_omis

            NO ONE got the “Zombieland” reference!?!?!?

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I never got around to seeing that movie.

          • anon_omis

            If you like zombie movies/games you HAVE to see it!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I probably will eventually.

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            In our defense you misspelled Columbus.

            destroys or annoys? or both?

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            Probably annoy since that’s funnier

          • anon_omis

            “annoy”? So that’s my new nick-name?

  19. KimbaWLion

    The elevator works, does this mean the power is back on? Or did I miss something?

    • JB

      It’s an unknown power source. I want to believe they’re using solar enegry.

      • gaboris

        It’s an SPG(Spirit Powered Generator) I tell ya! :D

      • A New Housepets! fan

        or maybe they have some sort of hidden Protoss Pylon :D

        • gaboris

          You must construct additional SPGs! (Just to be a nerd.) XD

    You missed the magic, mister

      Sorry, this was supposed to be a reply to kimbawlion 12:42 comment

  22. Elwood Blutarsky

    I love the irony of the story about a big snowstorm now being accompanied as I type this by a raging blizzard outside. Stay safe everybody.

  23. Gero

    Sabrina le habla de dragones y Peanut pregunta por elevadores jejeje

    • Lupin the Vapour

      Bueno, el perro tiene sus prioridades en su lugar. jejeje Además, se trataba de un traductor en línea … Lo siento por la gramática horrible …
      If you can’t understand that last bit, and can read this.. I apologize for the online translator grammar.

      • A New Housepets! fan

        Hey, so cyrilic is forbidden, but Spanish(or Portugal) isn’t?

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          it’s the same alphabet as English, so banning it would ban all English speakers, including Rick himself.

          • A New Housepets! fan

            that is not what i meant …

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            but the only way that Cyrillic is forbidden is because it’s a different alphabet.

          • A New Housepets! fan

            i wasn’t talking about that, and it is quite easy to write in languages like Bulgarian or Russian in latin, but it will be equal to chinese for those who doesn’t understand cyrilic. And what i meant is that we should all write in english, so that all of us can understand what are others writing, right?

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            agreed. but there’s really no way to enforce it.

          • A New Housepets! fan

            i think there can be made for certain words to be forbidden (i am not sure) but it is quite annoying, so it’s up to one’s character

  24. IceKitsune

    You know what why did Sabrina try to tell Peanut about Dragon anyway and if Sabrina thought it was ok to tell him why hasn’t Tarot told him already?

      because in doing so, Tarrot would have to show her true form, thus creating a paradox because the “Tarrot” that Peanut knew is in fact non-existant, but basically an avatar for a higher-spiritual being, and thus having to prove that sed avatar is in fact an avatar, the knowledge of the higher-beings would then be spread, thus causing those higher beings to have to destroy their universe, because there is an infinite amount of mortal universes within the so called “spiritual-realm.”
      Wait… What the heck did i just say…? I’m confused now… xD

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Because Rick wanted to make the elevator joke.

    • silverfang16

      Because the Spirit Dragon would have to admit she loves Peanut.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        no, tarot loves him.

  25. Valerio

    Peanut makes me remember of Pixel, ‘The Cat Who Walked Through Walls’. Just like him, Peanut, simply not being bound by the ‘common etiquette’ toward magic, will not be scared or amazed by it and walk through spells as if they were the most normal thing…

    • Lupin the Vapour

      O.o I must read this…

  26. Shiranai

    Things are starting to get very interesting.
    BTW. Is the elevator going up or down?

    • Shiranai

      wait *reads title
      never mind

      • Naylorfan90

        No worries. It seems a lot of people are making that mistake around here..

      • FerreTrip

        Totally random, but I FINALLY know where your avatar comes from. Summer Wars. Thank you, random ad on YouTube while watching a playthrough of Birth by Sleep!

        • Shiranai

          Yes. King Kazuma is awesome!
          Summer Wars is a really good movie if you haven’t checked it out.

  27. Asdf

    I know what she wants to be asked about.
    How that music is playing without power!

    • Chip Uni

      An orchestra playing on the roof of the elevator.

  28. gaboris

    Better question is: How come there’s power in the elevator? Tarot has her own spirit powered power plant? (An army of enslaved spirits run it to no end.) XD
    BTW if you knew Tartot yourselves would you ask ANY questions even if you heard somethin like that? :D

  29. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Magic elevator.

  30. Firewolf

    Why did Who the What do When in Where?

  31. Jennifer the Dark

    Before you die, you see…
    THE ELEVATOR

    • Naylorfan90

      … *shivers and looks behind him, gasping at the sight of a tall, slender man in a black suit and with a white, featureless face*

      • Jennifer the Dark

        Slendy! *glomps slender man*

        • Naylorfan90

          *blinks* Didn’t see that coming.

  32. Argent Stonecutter

    Canine Attention Deficit Disorder.

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      C.A.D.D.
      actually, I think he has canine attention deficit hyperactive disorder.

    • Frank

      Canine Attention def– Oooo! Squeaky toy!

      • Chip Uni

        *tugtugtugs on the squeaky toy with you!*

        • anon_omis

          Kevin runs in
          “tackle squiky toy!!”

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            *squeaky toy breaks*

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            (don’t worry, I have extras)

      • silverfang16

        Fox has a squeaky toy!

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          more precisely, a squeaky bone.

  33. Xenoyia

    Aww. Peanut looks so cute in the 3rd panel.

      Peanut looks cute in every panel.

        Here we are now, entertain us.

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          I feel stupid, and contagious.

  35. Argent Stonecutter

    Of course the dragon IS a spirit.

  36. Cwitt

    True, true.

  37. CalaverX11

    Why ARE they in an elevator when the power’s out?

    • Salenstormwing

      Because you’re not supposed to use the elevator when there’s a fire. Obviously this isn’t a fire. Just a power outage!

    • A New Housepets! fan

      I still stand for the Hidden Protoss Pylon :D

  38. Naylorfan90

    Silly Peanut is silly. And we all love him for it! X3

  39. HentMas

    OMG!!!!

    I LOVE THIS COMIC!!!

    and if i had a friend that does what Tarot can do, knowing she gets help from a dragon would never faze me, i mean, i already saw her do a representation of pridelands with her mind! dragons? PFfff.. WHO CARES!

  40. Gabi

    I liked the “barking at it from the distance” comic. It reminded me of my dog.

    Attention division++.

    • Gabi

      I meant ‘comment’, not ‘comic’.

  41. anon_omis

    I think their playing “Witchy Woman”

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      or puff the magic dragon.

      • anon_omis

        The names familiar, but it aint ringing any bells

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent
          • anon_omis

            is it a stupid kid song? because in that case I’ll live with not knowing

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            actually, some believe it’s actually about drugs. It was originally by a folk music group in 1963 and they claim it’s about the lost innocence of childhood.

          • silverfang16

            Peanut doesn’t even care about the symbols or spirits…..

            This is definitely why I have a dog.

        • silverfang16

          Why did it put this here…? -_-’

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            did you almost reply here, decide against it, and not cancel the reply?

  42. FerreTrip

    Pretty sure it’s been asked, but how’d they get power? Magic? Did the power just come back on?

    And I wonder how Sabrina knows about Spirit Dragon…

    …Speaking of Sabrina, Rick, you ever gonna let us read your WriMo from this year?

  43. anon_omis

    Has anyone used the same pic I used for their avatar?

    • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

      Nope

      • anon_omis

        YES!!! i cant believe that im the first one to make that as an avatar!

  44. Max Wolfe

    Sabrina’s having a “Grape” moment in panel 4.

    • garbud

      Oh my god your avatar Is so cute (this is off topic )

  45. Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

    Peanut’s a bit slow on this whole “summoning magic stuff” scene

    • WingedWolfGirl

      But it’s a valid question, what are they doing in an elevator in a power outage?

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        standing, talking, listening to elevator music, and going down is the answer to that question. A more valid question would be “why are we in an elevator?”
        the English language has evolved to accept poor wording.

        • anon_omis

          shut up you English nazi!!!

          • Z-Zman

            whatever you mean by that… I know what you mean…

            *POOF* Where am I?

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I wasn’t faulting the usage of the English language here, I was faulting the language itself. another example is when I once presented the argument that the question “how not?” should make sense by the same logic of “why not? making sense.

            I’m more like a grammar vigilante. I fight for grammatical justice.

          • anon_omis

            but my that same logic you do it illegaly

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            well, no one likes me doing it, do they. the grammar Nazis will try to capture me while those who break the laws of grammar will be annoyed.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Do you know who else was a grammar Nazi?

          • A New Housepets! fan

            ME!

          • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

            No need to remind us of the Grammarcaust, Stonecutter.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Die Sprache macht frei…

            Immer mit der Ruhe!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            NIE!!!!
            (p.s: I don’t speak German, I’m using Google translate)

  46. Mettlebird

    hehehe… peanut didnt get it… power was out yet the lights and elevator was working… xD

  47. WingedWolfGirl

    Pointing out the obvious, while simultaneously missing it.

  48. Mettlebird

    yay finally got an avatar.

  49. Mettlebird

    UGH IT WONT WORK!!!!

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      looks like it’s working to me.

      • Mettlebird

        yeh. i got it to work less than a minute after posting this, hahaha xD

      • Mettlebird

        realized that i had to put in the website i was using for my avatar in the “WEBSITE” tab. HERP-DERPTY-DERP on my part. xD

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Huh? What “website” tab? You mean the “website” entry when you post here? You don’t need to put anything there, I have mine pointing to my blog.

          • Mettlebird

            O.e …crap… haha! now i have made a TRPILE “HERPITY-DURRRRP DERRRRHHHH!!!” xD …i’m… just gonna go…over…somewhere else to avoid embarassing myself anymore… e.O

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            we all have our moments.

  50. Mettlebird

    how to you get an avatar to show up? i got one using Gravatar.

  51. Mettlebird

    k, think i got my avatar working.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It sometimes takes a while.

    • netherwolf

      yep..it works

      • Mettlebird

        k, ty guys. yeh, i had a stupid moment. haha, forgot to put the website in which my avatar was in the “WEBSITE” tab. HERPITY-DERPITY-DURRRHHHH! xD

        • Mettlebird

          …turns out i didnt need that. hahaha, just coincedence that it popped up when i put it there. xD

  52. Nintendosagafan

    hmm ok so its 2 things.
    one. peanut already knew about it but doesn’t care much
    two. he just didn’t listen to her well XD

  53. awesomecooper

    I wonder what tune is playing in the elevator? Hmm hmm…

  54. Cruzor

    So far as the “Avatar” deal I consider it like a character in a MMORPG…While playing the game you are in a sense the character….Heck, when you talk to your friends or family with whom you play the game with, you recount your (the character’s) activities…”Spirit Dragon” even for a second in panel seven of July 9, 2010’s strip (http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/07/09/and-nothing-but/) slips-up and says, “I… …Tarot still loves him.” So within the “Universes and Unrealities” game Spirit Dragon is in a sense is “Tarot”.

  55. RegularBird

    Heh, oh man I have the feeling the story is gunna get wonky again.

    • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

      Yeah, kinda like that arc that went from an innocent BBQ to King’s most insane experience yet.

      • RegularBird

        I wouldn’t mind seeing that happen again.

  56. anon_omis

    isnt this getting away from the “snowed in” theme of this arc?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      perfect contrast. King finds out about the dragon in a summer arc, while peanut finds out in a winter arc.

      • anon_omis

        didnt the dragon say that peanut was her avatar?

      • Z-Zman

        no tartot is her avatar, but her avatar loves peanut. I’m still a little confused about the whole “the avatar was not a dog in the past”, saying that grape was the last avatar, but is now king. Does that mean king’s body belongs to another dog?

        • anon_omis

          No, it belongs to him. And just because someone is an avatar doesn’t mean they are being controlled

      • A New Housepets! fan

        Just to make it clear:
        Peanut is Peanut
        Grape is Grape
        King is King
        Tarot is Spirit Dragons Avatar, but that doesn’t mean she is under control from SD 100 % of the time …

  57. Alechsa

    Wonder if the elevator is playing musak of the Pridelands movie….

    • anon_omis

      No probably the theme from “X-files” or “The Twilight Zone”

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        it’s “ghost in you” by the psychedelic furs.

      • anon_omis

        Or an instrumental version of “Ghostbusters”

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        or the instrumental of “Ghost Riders in the Sky”

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Instrumental version of “Don’t Worry Be Happy”… wait, what?

      • darkgloomie

        Orchestral version of One Winged Angel. Then when the doors open we’ll find the Spirit Dragon engaging in combat with a group of evil adventurers.

        Peanut: “Wrong comic?”

        Sabrina: “Definitely wrong comic.”

        • Argent Stonecutter

          There are webcomics that could happen in, but this isn’t one of them.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I’m fighting the urge to tell you that you shouldn’t end a sentence with a preposition. you should have said “in which that could happen.”
            oh, look at that. the urge won. :)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I didn’t end a sentence with a preposition, I ended a phrase with a preposition.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            i realized that while I was typing, but I got lazy. but that’s still not right.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It is the kind of shenanigans up which with you will not put.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            *up with which* I will not put. :P

          • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

            Never use a preposition to end a sentence with.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            and it is wrong to ever split an infinitive.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            That only applies in Latin.

          • anon_omis

            GOD!!!! German grammer is SO much easier, and I’ve only taken 1 1/2 years of it!!

  58. tagat

    Oh Peanut… you never change. :)

  59. J.J.

    Why do I feel Peanut’s hearing “The Girl from Ipanema”?

  60. Hoheh

    Months later, but I got my answer. Tarot is aware of Spirit Dragon. Oh, and Peanut is missing the point. It’s awesome.

    • A New Housepets! fan

      Once again i will make it clear – Tarot is SD’s Avatar

      • Hoheh

        I’ll make it clear. Peanut and Grape were around before we learned of the game. They were both potential avatars. I didn’t know if Tarot knew of the dragon as a separate entity to herself. Now I know. She is.

        • Hoheh

          * does, not is…

  64. Flintfang

    Why Do they have an elevator in their house?

  65. MrMutt

    Wait… no power but the elevator works. They must have a generator.

    • A New Housepets! fan

      Yes they have a generator powered up by 300 hamster

    • Raspberry the Cat

      What if. . . the elevator is a living entity that powers itself?
      oooweeeooo

  69. Scientist

    Wait, if the power’s out… does the elevator run on occult energy or something? XD
