    Awesome indeed Peanut! :D

    • Tha Housedog

      Alt text: There is no alt text which can do this imagery justice. You’ll just have to wait for Friday.

      • RegularBird

        Dang, such a wait.

    • KnightmareJoker36
      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        that’s what he’s going to do on Friday. He was saying that there is no short phrase which would do this justice. alt-text is just that, text.

    I wish I could punch a weather system D:

    • RegularBird

      I wish I could punch a weather system into an air combo.

      • Snowy

        Get a fan that’ll do fine

        • Rocket Knight boy

          Just like the weather woman in elite beat agents!

          • AflacMan13

            Gimme a few minutes… I’ll go crank up the range fans… (if you get that reference gimme a Hooah).

        chuck norRis
        you forgot the second r ;3

        • zander

          It was nice knowing you :<

    • Kamron

      Everybody go outside and punch a pile of snow today!

      • Naylorfan90

        That actually sounds kinda fun. *runs off to punch a pile of snow*

      • Lite

        I am so going to do that while its still around

      • FreakazoidVocaloid

        Even with the freak weather pattern that’s been blowing through for the past two weeks, we still haven’t gotten any snow. -punches a pillow in frustration, then punches a smoothie-

      • WingedWolfGirl

        3 people punched a pile of snow. :D

      • RegularBird

        Too bad theres no snow here..

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        little helpful hint:
        before you punch a pile of snow, make sure it isn’t really a pile of Ice.
        My knuckles are bleeding.

  3. IceKitsune

    lol shes fighting the storm

    • xhunterko

      Her partner’s a dragon right? Should be easy right?

      • netherwolf

        maybe ;p

        • Vlad the Cat

          you underestimate the dragon ? YOU SHALL BE PUNISHED with some slushies…

          Whaat ? i cant be evil xD

          • Ilovehousepets

            you called?

          • silverfang16

            Not you! You’re overpriced!

          • Blaze


            Now fix this wall you just knocked over before my dad comes home and beats me with a shovel!

            wait… different talking fruit-flavored drink…darn 0.o

      • Nohbody

        Not all dragons breathe fire. That’s mostly, IIRC, a western thing. Oriental dragons (at least SD looks more like the Oriental variety to me) are a bit more subtle about voicing their displeasure, by and large.

        • Kakurady

          Subtle like the flood.

          (In Chinese legends, the dragons are in charge of rain. So they do breathe weather systems. Fire suddenly doesn’t seem that impressive.)

        • Gamerkitty

          also remember the ones that breath acid, cold, electricity, etc, etc. and don’t forget if its a chromatic, metallic, primal, or half dragon either.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Gygax was a jerk.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            careful what you say, or he’ll roll dice to see if he can come back and haunt you.

        • Mavros

          Yeah, for all we know, SD could breath confetti!

          Okay maybe not, but I see your point

    • Shiranai

      lol well “fighting the storm” certainly brings new meaning to that term, literally.

  4. zero159

    Yggdrasil Root Beer is the best

    • Snowmon

      Yggdrasil was an evil heartless computer program that oversaw the Digital World & hated the human world because of our emotions…
      :) but he does make a great root beer.

      • The Moon Howler

        Actually, Yggdrasil is the name of an enormous tree (a.k.a the world tree) in Norse Mythology. see for yourself http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yggdrasil

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Just so long as he doesn’t try and chase Ratatosk.

        • Tha Housedog

          I thought he was an angel of Cruxis that was trying to destroy the world to save his sister?

        • Pogiforce

          Moon Howler is right about Yggdrasil, except it’s guarded by Celestials who give it thankfulness in hopes it will bear fruit so they can ride the Lunar Express.

          • Pogiforce

            Also it’s secretly a woman.

          • The Moon Howler

            Pogiforce, i am not just any Moon Howler … I am
            THE Moon Howler!

        • Snowmon

          Well, that explains why he was hiding in a giant tree the entire time…

        • Snowmon

          That also explains why Yggdrasil makes such great Root Beer for our favorite barker.

      • Naylorfan90

        You rule.

  5. Dissension

    I have a sneaking suspicion we won’t be seeing an eleven-headed Glorgnak after all. :(

    • Lupin the Vapour

      Don’t be silly. That’s the NEXT round. 8D

      • Snowy

        nah man the next round is Colossal stone Racoons!

        • netherwolf

          Nah you’r both wrong ;p,next round is with Clowthore,protector of Montizuma ! xD

          • The Moon Howler

            Or Quetzalcoatl!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            my money’s on the next round being against Raiden.

            MORTAL KOMBAT!!!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Not shoore heef seereyous…

  6. xhunterko

    That, is some nice root beer.

  7. Tha Housedog

    Now I want to punch a weather system because that would be SERIOUSLY AWESOME.

    • theblackcateyes

      Jajaj yeah you are righte
      It will very cool and more if appears Joey

      • Frank

        Ye Olde English righte?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Weather systems punch back.

  8. Hoheh

    Fourth panel Sabrina. Awesome face.

    • CheshireDCat

      Indeed an awesome face.

    • netherwolf

      Seriou,but awsome face.(and also a little cute)

    • RegularBird

      She’s always making faces

      Awesome faces that is.

    • The Moon Howler

      Panel four – Sabrina’s face is a killer

    • Devin Parker

      Oh, she knows full well the awesomeness of which she speaks.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        if you’re going to use fancy sentence structure and have an avatar with a top hat, you must end your comment with the correct emoticon. ^_Q

        • Leinad

          but he’s not wearing a monocle…

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            the avatar isn’t, but he should be. therefore, there should be a friend with monocle to accompany him.

    • Blaze

      I r sirius cat!

  9. Alex M.

    Last panel :’)

    • Snowy


    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Are you, in fact, calling UNOFFICIAL DIBS on Panel 4 Sabrina? Or simply commenting on it?

      This is a matter of UTMOST IMPORTANCE and URGENCY.

  10. theblackcateyes

    Jajaja, Cool, implications.
    well say sabrina
    jajaja i can wait for the Tarot’s apareance well

  11. netherwolf

    Tarot’s battle with the frost giant will surely be awsome,hopefully Peanut doesn’t get drunk by root beer to see it xD

    • The Moon Howler

      Don’t you worry about that. If he wanted to get drunk, he would of get himself some of Odin’s mead. (Root beer is actually as our Ariana beer)

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Ygdrasil’s roots are fed from Mimir’s spring, chock-a-block full of wisdom and intelligence. Odin had to give up an eye for a drink from it.

  12. Vlad the Cat

    haHA! An awesome strip on my birthday 8D

    Also, love the last panel x3

    • Naylorfan90

      Happy Birthday!

    • netherwolf

      Hawabanga dude and happy birthday!

      If i saw this earlier i would have replied earlier :D

    • Mettlebird


      • Naylorfan90

        Happy Birthday to you too then! :-D

      • theblackcateyes

        Happy birthday!!!!!!
        Hey you can buy somes root beers extra larges fot today

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Happy birthday. I have a link for you win I get on the computer.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Happy birthday. THERE WILL BE LINKS.

    • Vlad the Cat

      Aww thanks guys x3 -gives everyone a bottle of root beer-

      • Vlad the Cat

        Yggdrasil root beer actually

  13. Lupin the Vapour

    I smell a new avy coming from a strip in the near future. If Rick does that image even a BIT of justice, I’m plunking that down beside my name. 8D

  14. Nohbody

    Random thought: Is it the orange flavoring that makes orange soda act like booze for pets? There’s not really that much difference between orange soda and root beer, I believe, but apparently RB doesn’t have the same effect. (If nothing else, Mrs. Sandwich might object to having an alcoholic for a pet. :P )

    • FinalSilence

      Or maybe it only has effect on smaller pets? The only ones we’ve seen intoxicated are Keene and King. Could be they just can’t handle they’re soda.

      • darkgloomie

        or maybe they just have to drink LOTS?

        I don’t think Keene ever parted with his soda can, and King got drunk at a party.

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          look again
          King got drunk after one orange Soda. I guess maybe he didn’t have as much a tolerance as Keene had.
          If it acts like alcohol, size is a factor in how drunk you get, so maybe Peanut is just a casual drinker.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            and he doesn’t get drunk as easily because he’s bigger.

          • The Moon Howler

            Well i posted it below a few hours before FinalSilence

          • Blaze

            Lol, i just went and read that whole arc again…

            Drunken King is funny…

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent


        • silverfang16

          You can get drunk off of soda in a way. Not alcohol drunk, but it does present an elevated feeling commonly known as a sugar rush.

  15. LegendaryHero

    So the elaborate tunnel system is a metaphor for the frost giant’s veins or something or other?

  16. Z24

    Oh that answers my past questions. And Nice logic at last panel.

    And, first time you couldn’t think of an alt text? XD

    • WingedWolfGirl

      ooar, He’s tired of people posting the Alt-text.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        until he goes the route of XKCD and makes a mobile friendly version of the site in which the alt-text can be seen on phones and iPods, there is a valid reason for the posting of the alt-text.
        the problem comes when people compete to be the first to post the alt-text. therefore, we should comment, and whoever ends up with the first comment (please DO NOT just comment “first” or some variation) should reply to his or her own comment with the alt-text, unless they specifically ask others to reply with it because they are unable to read it themselves.

        that was to long. in short, first commenter reply to themselves with alt-text unless unable to do so.

  17. Russiarules1

    Two things:
    1. I love root beer
    2. Can Chuck Norris punch the weather system?

    Wait… don’t pets get kinda ‘boozed’ when drink soda, or only happens with orange soda?

    • Lupin the Vapour

      1. Root beer is AWESOME!

      Also, that last thing makes it three.. and I have no idea.

      • The Moon Howler

        Leave the poor guy (Chuck Norris) alone! WoW spam about him is enough for his headache

        • The Moon Howler

          Only the small ones (like King and Keene)

        • The Moon Howler

          My previous comment was about Russiarules1’s question about pets getting “boozed” by soda

  18. Val Kilmer Batman

    Here’s the deal: nobody has called official dibs on any avatars.

    THEREFORE: I am calling OFFICIAL DIBS on Panel 4 Sabrina and Panel 4 Peanut.

    Here I go.


    • Val Kilmer Batman

      I have to do it tomorrow though, since my laptop is all put away.

      Thus, dibs.

      • Snowy

        but you cannot Alex m. already has it :o

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          He has a third panel Avi. If he meant he also wants the 4th panel Sabrina, then I suppose he did call UNOFFICIAL dibs on it…

          Let me check the rulebook.

          Let’s see, page 453, paragraph 2, lines 7-12…

          Alright, I’ll allow it. IF he wants it.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Wait, that’s not the third panel. I didn’t look that closesly at it.


            But not really.

  19. Val Kilmer Batman

    At a glance, panel 4 actually makes me think of that one thing where a drunk character will go up to a sober character and put an arm around them, and then raise Thais free arm and look off into the distance, say something (poetic, philosophical, or just random), and then fall asleep.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      “no, no, man. You got to flip it… TURN WAYS.”


      • Failtastic Mrs. Fox

        Can I use that quote some time? XD

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Wait! I found what this strip ACTUALLY reminded me of! Are you ready?

      ARE YOU READY, for a BLAST fom the PAST?

      Here you go.


      • FinalSilence

        That’s funny. XD

        • anon_omis

          It’s weird to see the old art style

          • The Moon Howler

            Why is it weird?

          • anon_omis

            I’m so used to the way it is now. I don’t mean that in a bad way

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Val Kilmer Batman uses ARCHIVE SEARCH!

            ARCHIVE SEARCH became OLD ART STYLE!

            It’s Super Effective!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Val Kilmer Chris Knight was still cooler.

  20. Firewolf

    Luv his expression in Panel 4 =D Plus, I think I have punched a rain storm before…it punched back.

  21. Val Kilmer Batman

    Is Sabrina doing the Awesome Face in panel 3?

    Why so many Awesome Faces, Rick? And why are their Faces so Awesome?

    • anon_omis

      Why not

      • theblackcateyes

        JAjaj …Touch{e

  22. James Sitka

    Do the lyrics to Achillie’s Last Stand come to anyone’s mind?

  23. Shiranai

    Does this “battle” have anything to do with U&U?
    Because if Tarot and Aurgelmir are playing a game of U&U, all I can say is divine entities and animistic beings are really nerdy in the HP! universe.

    • The Moon Howler

      well in D&D there are encounters of similar type so why not such a epic battle in U&U? besides that explains the lot of snow and the name of the arc of course.

      • Shiranai

        I’m not really complaining about U&U. I just find it hilarious that some Gods / higher beings in HP! like to play games like U&U (D&D). I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them play WOW on their universal computers or something.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          I shall now present my case:

          1) these beings live on a higher plane of existence
          2) they are functionally omniscient
          3) we may from this that they are more intelligent than most, if not all, members of the HP plane. Or at least know more trivia.
          4) If Intellignce/Trivia Knowledge => X and Nerdiness => Y, then as X->+infinity, Y->+infinity.
          5) If Nerdiness => X and the Likelyhood of playing Pen-and-Paper RPGs => Y, then as X->+infinity, Y->+infinity.

          THEREFORE we can surmise that, based on our current knowledge, the higher the plane of existence, the more likely it’s inhabitants are to play Pen-and-Paper RPGs, though there is undoubtedly an unknown limit, as Nerdiness cannot exist without the Popular Crowd Variations.

          Other factors include the ratio of viable Game Masters to Players, the ratio of Combined GM and Player Count to Number of Those Guys, etc.

          Additional research must be conducted to determine the type of graph, though Logarithmic seems to be the most likely.

          Also, Number of Game Systems, Variants, Homebrews, and Houserules may affect the shape of the graph.

          I recommend that a grant be offered for additional research into this subject, as it could be vital to our understanding of our immediate Upper, Lower, Parallel, and Perpendicular Dimensional Neighbors, as well as the Inter-Planar Community in general.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I have a few points to make in response to this:
            1) I was probably one of the very few to actually read your entire argument.
            2) A lot of the made no sense to me.
            3) A pen-and-paper RPG is only the closest earthly approximation to the game they are playing, as humans would be unable to comprehend the true rules and mechanics of the game they are playing.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            1) I agree
            2) I had math class today
            3) I believe it was simply the rules that were too complicated. I’m pretty sure U&U is played with their equivalent of pens and papers.

            Not everything was a metaphor, either; the soda represents he’s thirsty now shut up. : P

          • Frank

            higher being ⇒ smarter being ⇒ nerdier being

            Logic is a lot easier than calculus :P

          • The Moon Howler

            A-A-ACK! Wall of TEXT!

    • Devin Parker

      Well, we already know they’re rules lawyers.

  24. The Moon Howler

    Um just an offtopic: how old is Grape?

    • FinalSilence

      Well, the cast states younger then Peanut, but sadly we need to know his age in order to slightly estimate her age. So, in other words, I don’t know.

    • The Moon Howler

      I hope for Rick to answer my question:)

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Unless you activate the Rick-Signal or cast a sufficiently powerful SUMMON AUTHOR spell, your question will MOST LIKELY remain unanswered. Even then, success is uncertain.

        Authorology, much like it’s distant cousin Demonology, is never an exact science.

    • Frank

      If each real year = 1 in-comic year, and you consider that this comic has been running for 2½ years, and suppose it takes these pets at least as long to grow up (the wolf cubs are still cubs, and the 3-year-old ferrets are not kits) and you consider that these pets live about 40 years (http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/11/13/housepets-remnants-of-the-american-nomad/), and if we suppose Grape’s not an old lady (which puts her at under 20)

      Then more than 5 years old, but less than 20

  25. Rayne

    So does this mean I can beat the crap out of good will, kindness, love, justice, hope , and friendship?

    • The Moon Howler

      i didn’t get that …

      • Score

        He was referring to the ability to punch a weather system being applied to other things too.

        • The Moon Howler

          ooooh … in that case: Rayne you have to through me to reach those! I defended them many times, i will succeed again!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      To defeat the evils of Truth and Love…

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        to extend our reach to the stars above…

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          which, you know, would hurt if they were actual stars.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Random idea #?:

            Team Rocket VS The Rocketman

          • Silent Kitsune

            Who’s the Rocketman again? :/

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Elton John.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            should the Rocketeer get in on this action?

  26. tahrey

    good lord, that is genius-level use of allegory :-D

    i vote for someone to invent this ability in real life as i have a good few metaphysical concepts i’d like to give a good right hook to the jaw

    • Leinad

      like Valentines Day?
      I’D like to punch Valentines Day. Right in the FACE.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        down he went, like Lisdon. (Scrubs Reference.)

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          or rather, paraphrasing of a line from Scrubs which was a reference to something else.

  27. Salenstormwing

    Weathermen would be so much more badass if they punched weather on a weekly basis. Instead of making the poor folks stand out in the rain during 100 mph winds in a hurricane, let them go have honorable combat with the mystical fiend of wind & rain.

    Also, it would make the Weather Channel more like pay-per-view UFC.

    • WingedWolfGirl

      Ultimate Weather Channel. :s

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I’m Commander Sheperd, and this is my favorite show on the Citadel.

      • Salenstormwing

        I’d totally upgrade to HD Cable for that channel.

    • Frank

      Though if a weather system were punch-able, weather forecast would probably simply become America’s Most Wanted, rather than any actual punching occuring

  28. gaboris

    Soooo no immortal demigod Peanut? Too bad, wold’ve been funny. XD
    Let’s just leave the “what’s harder to punch” part, I’m a bit ashamed cuz of it. >.<"

    • Argent Stonecutter

      No immortal Peanut, but I don’t think a soda from Mímisbrunnr (Mimir’s well, which feeds the roots of Yggdrasil) is going to leave him unaffected. Gods give up vital body parts for a sip from the Well of Wisdom.


      • Frank

        Peanut is already smart enough to make relativity jokes and to read Dune in less than 6 hours. How could the well of wisdom affect him?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          He’ll know how to foil the frost giants?

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          I think the additives in the root beer dilute the effects enough that there will be no significant effects.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Additives? In Yggdrasil Root Beer? Nonsense!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            there’s probably additives, otherwise everyone who drinks it would gain the knowledge to make their own.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            The hard part isn’t the formula, it’s getting the fresh Yggdrasil root.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            and they’ll gain knowledge which would help them do that more easily.

          • Frank


  29. T-Squared

    I can just see Peanut doing this with that frost giant:

    “Hey, if you don’t mind… may I have some frost on this root beer?”

    • The Moon Howler

      Frost on beer?

    • netherwolf

      Frost giant or Ice cube maker…they’r all the same :D

  30. anon_omis

    I saw what you did there Rick!

  31. anon_omis

    Peanut is a dog after my own heart! I think he is drinking an IBC! XD

    Sabrina in panel 3 & 4…Are the quintessential fan/geek/nerd faces…Panel 3 she looks like she is having a Nerd-gasm…Panel 4 she looks like she is experiencing the Nerd-afterglow while asking him a fan question…Either way the looks on her face in those panels are “Priceless”…I guess that I would act in a similar way if my teacher was that awesome…Now only if all “battles” sound so epic…

    • Naylorfan90

      My goodness, you’re right…Sabrina is a Tarot fangirl! :-O

  35. Levi

    Someone getting excited for the Thor movie

    • Keenan

      Yeah I can’t wait for it

  36. Eric

    I’m really liking this excursion into the unknown. Also, no biggie on the name duplication. Aurgelmir is just another name for Ymir. :)

  37. CalaverX11

    …why do I get the feeling we’ll be seeing Spot (Superdog) fighting a snowstorm in the near future?


    • japan

      …why do I get the feeling you made a Simpsons reference a few comics back? (The goggles, they do nothing!)

  38. darkgloomie

    I totally called the fight.

    Only not really.

    I called a fight between Spirit Dragon and evil adventurers. this is close enough, I guess.

  39. Rocket Knight boy

    last panel and it’s expressions FTW!

    • theblackcateyes


    • Frank

      Awesome avatar, by the way.

      • Rocket Knight boy

        Thank you, Sparkster makes a good avatar, and i think your mouse character is good too

  40. Pogiforce

    ah, now I see how you tied this whole thing into the snowstorm arc. :P

    • Pogiforce

      Also, last panel makes me think of the Penny Arcade game “On the windswept precipice of Darkness” Where Tycho asks Gabe if he’d like to punch a god.

  41. Zaffa

    Peanut’s right, the implication ARE awesome. :O
    *mind is blown from thinking about it*

  42. Clairvoyant Legacy


  43. huntersunday

    you got a root beer? yeah its awesome

  44. theblackcateyes

    You are right, this only would be most epic if Joey would be appear, well what can i say:
    I LOVE JOEY!!!!!!!!!!

    maybe too much… I’s sick…JAjaja and i loved it

    • theblackcateyes

      Sorry that word was “I’m” and this comment suposed to be a reply for the Clairvoyant Legacy comment

    • Frank

      Joey may be weird, but I don’t think he’s hiding a dimensional portal anywhere

      …unless Pete’s been handing them out

  45. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    nobody’s said it specifically yet. Sabrina finally got the reaction out of Peanut that she was fishing for. and she is very happy.

    • The Moon Howler

      2 tries failed, third success – there is a proverb that says: “Everything happens the third try” (ok i know that translation isn’t good but then again, proverbs are very hard to translate, so don’t worry if you don’t get it)

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        the easy way to say that is “third time’s the charm”

        • The Moon Howler

          English is not my first language…

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I figured as much, and I was just informing you so you can use it in the future should the need arise.

        • netherwolf

          and it’s also 3 strikes and you’r out (couldn’t resist)

          • Frank

            Except that “third time’s the charm” means “you will succeed on the third try”, while “3 strikes your out” adds an omnious “or else”

    • Pokeblue

      I was actually wondering about that.

  46. FerreTrip

    Aaahhhhhhhh, so that’s where this is going. Cool. ^^

    Though, I kinda wonder why Sabrina’s letting Peanut in on this whole thing…I thought supernatural stuff was off-limits…Or is my memory just being stupid right now?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Sabrina’s not a player, she’s an NPC, so she’s allowed.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        but that begs the question, how did she find out. did Tarot break the rule?

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        but that begs the question, how did she find out? did Tarot break the rule?

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          sorry, but that first one didn’t show up at first. plus I used improper punctuation.

          • Z-Zman

            it probably went like this (maybe). Maybe Sabrina broke the rules before, so she was sent to be a lower class being. Or Psychics are like in the middle between the two. I don’t know, it’s just an idea

        • Argent Stonecutter

          How did she find out what? She’s Tarot’s apprentice!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            yes, but should she really have told Sabrina about all this? I’m fairly sure she wasn’t travelling between planes of existence before tarot came along.

            or are they allowed to tell anyone?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Rather than ask “was she traveling between planes of existence before tarot came along?” ask “was she traveling between planes of existence before spirit dragon came along?”

          • Frank

            Oh, noes! It’s the return of clippit!

          • Argent Stonecutter


          • Frank

            “It looks like you’re writing a letter”

          • Argent Stonecutter


            I think you’re taking my off-topic topic off-topic, and that is something up with which I shall not put!

            Now where was I?

            Oh yes.

            If Tarot was psychic before Spirit Dragon came along, and Sabrina was her apprentice before Spirit Dragon came along, then (a) she could have been tootling about in spirit realms already, and (b) hiding Spirit Dragon from Sabrina would have been like hiding a girlfriend from your roommate. That only works in romantic comedies, and only long enough to set you up for act three.

    • Solomon

      I don’t think they ever mentioned that it was against the rules for people to know that you had an avatar. The only rules we really know of(that I can remember, are
      1. no malevolent behavior
      2. You’ve gotta play through an avatar

  47. CaptainPea

    I think Sabrina’s face in that last panel more than justifies the direction this story is taking

  48. Nintendosagafan

    lol if only you COULD punch a weather system XD

  49. WingedWolfGirl
  50. Misharu

    I can see a courage wolf image now saying punch a weather system.

    Also…Is it bad that when I saw Yggdrasil in the title I thought of both the Yggdrasil in Norse Mythology AND Tales of Symphonia at the same time? >w>

  51. Flintfang

    The implications ARE INDEED awesome

  52. Jennifer the Dark

    Man, and we just ran out of root beer today D:

  53. silverfang16

    I love Sabrina more and more every panel of this arc.

  54. Ninetailsgun

    Well if Tarot can manipulate reality there, we could be getting a near-future appearance by Spot the wonder dog.. XD

  55. Ninetailsgun

    Peanut: Oooo! Ooo! I wanna punch it!
    Tarot: Okie. *zap*

  56. lChronosl

    Hmm, how did Peanut pay for that root bear?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      with the extra finger he had when the last comic was posted.

    • Teh Kitsune

      What? He did?

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        yes, but they took it magically from all time, so it’s as if it never happened.

  57. Kujiiro


  58. Ignaltus

    - Was really necessary to coment all these are in “quote /quote”, guys?

    - Out this, Penaut don’t should more your felinepholine? ;3

    • Teh Kitsune


      And don’t should more your felinepholine?

      • Frank

        I think he mean “shouldn’t you be more of a felinophile”

  59. the1truesushiboy

    Yggdrasil root beer would be an utterly awesome idea. Almost as awesome as punching a weather system.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      You wouldn’t want it to get into the wrong hands.

      • Frank

        Been watching Superstorm?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Can’t have the frost giants getting hold of it. Odin’s going to need that edge come Ragnarok.

  60. Ignaltus

    - Yes, it is, Frank: “I think he mean “shouldn’t you be more of a felinophile”.

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      you have two opening quotation marks and only one closing, plus there’s only supposed to be single quotations around a quote within a quote.

      “I think he mean ’shouldn’t you be more of a felinophile?’ ”
      or if you only meant to stress the first part:
      “ ‘I think he mean’ shouldn’t you be more of a felinophile?”

      • Frank

        A quote within a quote is actually quite free. Some people put 3 or 4. Example:
        “He exclaimed “”OMG!”" and fainted”

        Though that doesn’t deter your point on the fact that he should’ve been consistent, and close all he opened

  61. Anubis

    I punched a frost giant once. Never again.

  62. knux

    *sip* hmm. Tastes like world. I guess that’s why its slogan is “Taste the world.”

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      the question is, to which world is it referring? I don’t want root beer that tastes like Uranus. :)

      • Frank

        I think that would be poisonous

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          no, it would only taste poisonous.

      • Anubis

        I see what you did there?

        • Teh Kitsune

          Ohhh hahaha :3

      • WingedWolfGirl

        …gives a “literal” meaning to
        Taste the Rainbow
        Unleash the Power of the Sun!

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          not to mention “kiss the sky” and “break wind”

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            sorry, this is not apt for this post, but it is applicable to the basis of this strip.

            I need to remember to read the things to which I am replying.

  63. Mystic Wolf

    Ha, I think this will be as funny as… every comic that Rick has done xD!

  64. Hoheh

    Sabrina has a valid point. Punching weather sounds hard.
