Grape you just gotta love her cuteness and awesomeness! So hard to resist!!!
I still don’t like how she’s treating Peanut while Res is around.
Imaginate Again, Again!?
yeah, he doesn’t deserve it to be threaten this way. *suplex*
well, this IS the first time Peanut is around with Res.
If nothing, she’d be to blame because Peanut was trying to be a good guest.
You mean a good host?
its a natural response mom and dad aren’t around to show the embarrassing baby pics so Peanut is doing it, that and siblings fight all the time at least me and my brothers did
You didn’t say anything wrong, Res, you said the right thing too loudly!
Kinda ironic considering his small-font speech bubbles.
It’s not what he said, it’s how Grape interpreted it.
Res meant that she was curious about dogs.
Grape on the other hand thinks he talking about her feelings towards dogs.
True. And poor Res also has such a sheltered life that he wouldn’t realize that it’s “wrong” even if he meant it that way.
“Hey, that is completely different for reasons which will occur to me later!”
At least Res wasn’t here when she did certain hilariously inappropriate things while using Tarot’s HoloMind (not hollow).
There’s probably more or less truth in it, since she took it that way. If she didn’t have any those kind of feelings she could have just shrugged it off.
agree on the ‘more truth’ part, since she had another denial reaction back when the barn cat pointed Grape’s apparent preferences for dogs…
That… or it’s the fact the Prideland author thinks she loves dogs =P
I would agree with you if she had not run into her room crying about it. If she would have snapped out a No at him instead or just blushed and explained that it wasn’t true I could see that. But really I guess either is possible right now.
Considering how much she loves the Prideland series, She’s trying to make everything perfect in Res’s eyes to the kind of person she is. Saying she hung around dogs when she was young is not putting a good impression on herself. But that’s Grape’s opinion.
He stated in the last panel that he doesn’t care (and finds it cute) so again her reaction is strange. Add on to that her willingness to hang out with dogs only even though Max lived right next door and the fact that she had no real reason for it. It adds up to possible denial on her part IMO.
Let me put it this way:
This is like Grape telling Res since day one she liked Ponies because it’s what girls liked. However, Peanut tells Res that she liked to play Dungeons and Dragons with other guys
Grape i’m %100 sure is just overreacting, not hiding anything.
yup! Keep believing it, Cobra, keep it believing…
I think it may be mpre a matter of Grape telling herself she’s not into dogs, but secretly being worried that this isn’t true, and that terrifies her.
Ok I kind of get what your getting at (but I don’t agree that your right). Except that your analogy doesn’t really work. As she still is willing to hang out with dogs (a.k.a play dungeons and dragons in your analogy) even after she started hanging out with more cats. So the analogy is really really weak.
And it ignores the fact that she had no really good reason to do so as said to the barn cats, and the fact that Max lived next door and she didn’t hang out with him that much (if at all) until the Yarnball. Really right now either one of us could be right in this case anyway so we will have to wait and find out.
I mean “into dogs” in more of the “dog-lover” way. She’s afraid that she’s actually *attracted* to dogs.
Ponies and Dungeons and Dragons… just play a Paladin with a “Warhorse”
My bet is that she has feelings for Peanut.
I’ve always thought she had a thing for Peanut.
Poor Max and Tarot though. Although Tarot knows what she’s got into, since she the psychic avatar for a powerful celestial entity…
Speaking of Tarot, how do you tell when she’s using her powers? Do her eyes change colour or something? I’m only asking because it’s hard for me tell.
Tarot’s eyes are green when she’s using her powers.
Mil, Tarot’s eyes turn from their normal amber to emerald green when using her power.
Also when Spirit Dragon is in control.
Ah, thank you. The second link didn’t work, but if her powers always make her eyes turn into solid pools of colour I’ll be fine, since I still can’t see the difference in colour. Ugh, I hate colour-blindness.
Honestly… for Grape, I do hope for the Peanut x Grape pairing. But to me… the ship I wish that would stay is the Peanut x Tarot. I know that’s not likely due to direction of story, but I love that relationship.
do you think Grape and Res might start dating? I mean Res said shes cute and Grape blushed….A LOT:)
I agree. Every person I know does that when its true. If it isn’t, they are calm about it. Res is an interesting name. Does it stand for anything?
AAAMEN TO THAT
Grape can’t handle the truth!
Truth? Or embarassment? =3
Res, man, think of the consequences before you speak! I mean this is like the second time you’ve gotten Grape in trouble, at least!
I just got some evil feeling over me WHY?!
Almost as red as Peanut when Grape showed him that colored in photo that she found!
Or when Peanut mentioned the ‘Pridelands Incident’!
But how does one blush with a face full of fur? XD
That’s something that’s always bugged me, too.
Because its funny that’s why
We can only hope, we can only hope.
I still cling to Tarot’s prophecy in regard.
because if them two don’t work it out for good, it’s gonna be ugly…
…ya know, I had completely forgotten about that bit of foreshadowing.
What? Did I miss something?
you missed THIS
We see Res with a big smile and Grape ruins it. = P
Wait… has Res ever had a big smile like that before? Also… there may be an implication Res is missing.
Res has been kinda sheltered, you know. He’s never even met a dog before.
Yeah, I’m sure he’s totally clueless what he just implied
She flipped Peanut! Poor Peanut!
That was mildly impressive since she lifted him from the sitting position.
Mildly?it is epic!! BTW how do you set your icon-thingumy?
I wonder who’s in more trouble here Res or Peanut?
nah, she’s in trouble…with herself.
denial’s a young charming female dog, dear grape
I’d say Peanut, Res just got the ‘wrong impression’ from what Peanut showed him, so it’ll be book lover, not the book writer, who is to suffer Grape’s wrath…should any wrath be suffered that is.
Peanut for hijacking Grape’s special time, even though it was totally unintentionally and good manners to keep company to the guest. Meh, it’s just Grape irrationally making a big deal out of nothing, we’ve seen that before.
Not often have we seen Grape so embarrassed she loses the blue from her fur, although it is becoming more common
Don’t you mean purple?
Blue + Red = Purple. Now think about it again
Oh dear, sad Grape is sad.
Gotta love those jokes
Actually, they’re starting to get a little old.
I’m sorry I’m much to tired to be creative I’ll try again tomorrow.
Didn’t really have to apologize. I was just sayin’.
Everybody looks so small now.
Uhh, Res hit a very touchy point there…
OMG THIS IS SO FRIGGGIN CUTE, LIKE SUPER D’AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
I wouldn’t consider this situation “cute”
Grapes embarasment, is cute in a twisted way
Blushing Grape is always cute.
Not if you’re grape. I know how Res feels in that last panel. Terribly guilty, confused, and frustrated. You just wish that you never opened your stupid mouth.
Poor Res – I get the distinct impression that that is often the way he feels when he opens his mouth. He’s quite accomplished with putting his foot there.
Doesn’t matter what Res thinks… only what Res knows matters, and Res knows too much.
Oh btw ALT TXT PLZ*_*
I KNEW THIS WAS PAYBACK FOR ALL THE SAUCY FAN FICTION I’M SORRY!
“I knew it this is payback for all the saucy fanfiction i’m sorry”
I KNEW THIS WAS SORRY FOR ALL THE PAYBACK I’M SAUCY FANFICTION!
There’s just a TAD to much alt text here, don’t ya think? lol
I KNEW THIS WAS PAYBACK FOR ALL THE SAU—
I wonder if anyone actually read mine…
“I’m saucy fanfiction”?!…
so true for grape who did it on the street! lol
I did. You made me lol :p
I litterally LOLed
The real irony here is that every one of the Alt Text posts is slightly incorrect in one way or another e.e
How is that irony? And praytell, person who lives in Rick’s mind and understands why he writes them, how are they incorrect?
Incorrect in that each of the alt texts posted differs from the actual comic’s alt text in one way or another. It’s ironic that each one independently made mistakes in their transcription.
Brock Lesnar ain’t got nothing on Grape…
1,2,3! It’s over! Grape has won the first round against Peanut using her famous supllex! Uh oh looks like she was easily deafeted by Newcomer Res by using his best attack, The Undenying Truth.
Accidental, but critical.
“I’m sorry Grape, would it help if I said I think Peanut is cute too?”
For lack of a better word, no.
What was it this time? The pan, the broom?
no, a nuke.
The collective minds of everyone in the vicinity.
That would just result with someone else barring themselves into their rooms.
And probably some fans going to their respective bunks…
Aww poor socially ignorant Res… No it would not help…. Why’d you have to say that? You know it’s going to come up in fanfictions now. -_-
Best panel in the whole comic since the last one.
Now were going to find a character based off grape in the pridelands saga, who consequently is in love with a canid. At I think that’s what should happen, lol
Heh, nice idea
Seriously, if that happens, I’would be really happy.
Definitely a mary sue fan character shipping with Saso
Nah, hyenas aren’t canids and besides he’s dead. I’m betting the cape dog, or maybe he’ll bring in some jackals.
Not to be rude or anything. But hyena’s are part of the canine family. Therefore they are canids.
She went from suplex to hiding in her room in a manner of seconds, now that’s talent.
No, that’s just how girls naturally are.
Poor Res, dear boy hasn’t even a clue. Now the real question…what’s it gonna take to get Grape to come back out?
Given Rick’s amazing talent at plot-twisting, now ANYTHING can happen.
The question is…
What’s gonna happen to Max?
Possession by a player of the game ?
This…this is very true. I think the wait to see the out come might just drive me to insanity though…or rather it would…if I weren’t already there.
Next comic: King and Fox walking down the street in a one off.
…pretty sure I’d go into insanity meltdown and take the whole of the US central timezone with me if that were to happen.
*moves to mountain time so i don’t get hit by meltdown*
If that is seen with King without being snarky then truly it is abhorrence in the fabric of the universe
I have a feeling in the next strip (or one in this arc) Grape is going to vehemently deny that she’s interested in dogs. Turning this in to a case of “The lady doth protest to much, methinks.”
whatever, as long as she really doesn’t break peanut’s heart and ruins Res’ friendship
Didn’t she broke it already long time ago?
well, at least they talked about that and they agreed on the ‘mushy stuff’. Like friends with benefit.
Now the risk is that things degenerate…
They glued it back together.
Or the arc shifts towards the cats now. >.>
I think this is the most assertive Res has been, I think before if Grape came in and flipped Peanut he would just sit there awkwardly looking around the room.
So THAT’S what grape has been writing about in her fan fiction! And I do believe we’ve never seen Grape blush this badly before!
Maybe second hardest, there was the time when Peanut brings up the Pridelands events with Tarot, and everybody seeing Grape doing something.
But i don’t think we actually saw her blush though. And besides i think, at least in the houspets animal world, it’d be more embarrassing for someone to know that you are interested in another species. Just like with Fido and Spo, although that’s just a friendship.
Yes you did. Making Grape blush is one of my favorite things to do.
Then i think a great ending to this arc would be *couch* Princess *couch* Periwinkle *cough*
I’m sorry i just lost the idea, maybe it’ll revisit me another time.
you making Grape blush is one of my favorite things to see
*hmmmmm I forsee more redface*
so, it’s safe to assume that Res still doesn’t understand what did he say wrong…
To be fair he did miss all the drama between Grape, Peanut, and Max
True, but I don’t think he even understands it at all. Like he doesn’t think its wrong and doesn’t know other pets do think its wrong.
I doubt he has a clue about the dog-lover connotations Grape took from his words. He just thought it was cute that all of Grape’s early friends were dogs.
Is it Rick?IS IT!!!!!!!?
I’m sure he doesn’t.
I think my earlier comment of “He’s let down his defences by moving his tail. It means he is letting people into his bubble so he might open up which could be interesting.” is now valid.
This is true, but it also means that Res has become more comfortable being around Grape and Peanut, he just needed a little bit of time to adjust.
oh mah gawsh X3 His face in panel 3! She’s so cute! XD And I thought it was Peanut who had the um, interesting likes X3
Too obvious? NAH JUST right for us fans. X3
Res, stop being so adorable. I’m a *wolf*, I’m supposed to *eat* felines, not like them!
And poor Peanut, all he was trying to do is make Res feel at home, and here he is been beaten up by Grape…
Also, does anyone else notice the title of this comic? Red, Red Wine? That’s a song about remembering old feelings for someone… Like Grape remembering her love for Peanut… Just sayin’. :3
Actually its not a song about remembering but actually trying to forget a lost love. It could mean something or it could just be referring to her blushing or both. Or even nothing at all and Rick just happen to like the title.
Grape confirmed as Tsundere.
Tsun-tsun or Dere-dere?
Grape’s worst fear: That she actually *is* attracted to canines.
Aww, I was enjoying the whole cuteness thing, but seeing Grape suplex Peanut is kinda funny I guess. <3
lol uh oh
Wow….definitely not what I think would happen
Grape uses SUPLEX!…It’s supper effective!
Res uses what he thinks is an innocent comment – it’s a critical hit!
I love their blush!
A suplex is like a tussle for Peanut <3
Poor Grape. Having the pain of thinking the Prideland author thinking she's a dog lover now @_@
I had to google SUPLEX.
Wow grape is kinda a jerk
Why is this strip called “red red wine” ?
Refering to grape blushing red and whining sort of
Probably also because wine is made of grapes. And wine is red, and she’s blushing, and…yeah…
A perfect name for a strip then.
That must have been hard to think of.
If it was me who thought of that of course I would be all like Lawl I’m smart.
It’s the name of a song about forgetting a lost love.
^She’s Grape, and blushing. red grapes are used for winemaking purposes.
Res, look at what you have DONE!
wow ididn’[t think grape knew a wrestleing move. i some saw this comeing for penuat.
sorry i fail a typeing.
All that time sleeping on the couch in front of the TV wasn’t COMPLETELY wasted!
Even Rick himself said he liked the mental image of Grape watching WWF wrestling on TV. That makes it semi-pseudo-hemi-demi-quasi-canon at least!
Well this was an entertaining comic. Will she admit her love for dogs? Will she redeem herself? Will Res be more assertive in the future? Tune in next episode to find out!
I now have the distinct feeling that the issue will be solved in a Spot minicomic…
As all good arcs should xD
i agree, i miss Spot (Superdog) comics!
Careful what you wish for! Don’t give Rick an excuse to be lazy! D-:
I think it has to do something with dogs
mmm… this seems a little familiar.. i know this..
nah..im gona wait to see were this ends.
res and peanut dont know what the heavens have just happend
people have …. peculiar… problems.
I used to think that Res spoke in a thin voice out of shyness, now i think it must be something innate
Yep, I think Res actually cannot physically yell. I think his voice is set a different volume level compared to most. Which means he can possibly say things even dogs, can’t hear.
Res is yelling in the last panel.
I don’t think that’s yelling. I think it’s just him raising his voice a bit and putting a bit more force behind it.
Res’s yell is the equivalent to a normal voice :3
It *is* innate – he’s innately shy, and just look what happens every time he comes out of his box – it’s always a major embarrassment.
isn’t grape a bit short in the 3rd panel?
she’s the right size.
it’s only that we’re not used to see her and the others compared to human-sized objects.
I was pointing that out because on the 2nd panel she appears to have her regular height and she seems to shrink on the 3rd… perhaps blushing side-effects…? xD
She is blushing soo hard that she went back to her kitten days hahahahahaha
I think i figured it out, her ears kind of go down, makeing her look shorter, so yes, it was a because she was blushing (or embarassed)
I think Grape’s younger/smaller look in the 3rd panel is due to her body’s skewed proportions…
Grape is blushing so bad we could call her Cherry.
I dunno. How would a Cherry Sandwhich taste?
Cherry JAM Sandwhich
The thought of that taste makes me hungry.
My cherry amore…
Ha ha ..furpattern like a Vixen.
“You would cry too if it happened to you.” ^_^
Grape has had this kind of reaction before, i wouldnt think it has anything to do with her feelings towards dogs. I agree with someone earlier that she wants everything to be perfect but now it isnt.
What i’m curious about is why she called it their “Special Time”
I think its a mixture of both. I mean she obviously likes dogs (to the point of love is unclear), but she probably doesn’t like other cats (especially her idol of sorts) to find that out. And how ruined would your day be if your idol said you liked the other team? Res is just confused and doesn’t even realize that its socially unacceptable. And Peanut was just being a good host :3 .
Wait, i’m not clear on one thing. Is Grape or Res saying this in the alt text? I’m pretty sure it’s Grape, but Res tends to speak in allcaps (if you know what i mean) when he’s upset.
grape pawns peanut, res pawns grape ^_^
Is this the first time we see grape doing anything to peanut? I know that there are some comics that imply grape might hurt peanut after the strip, but this is the only one that we see it in the strip?
Well she wrestled him to get to the door in this arc, and she threw that sign at him in the Macbeth play.
In Macbeth peanut did not seem to get hurt (and lets face it, would a sign like that really hurt?), and in the begining of this strip she was just holding him down, but this time she really let him have some, i’m supprized that he is standing up in the last pannel
That suplex isn’t to be taken likely :3
Aww, poor grape. She’s gonna die of embarrassment… and shock… DX
EPIC SUPLEX !!
You know, mabye we will get to see Res tell the story of how he started writing pridelands, and why he let his owner take the credit. He could tell it to Grape if she comes out of her room, like an incentive.
Now Res is going to be even more hesitant to speak around others :S
Grape must be seriously embarrassed xD
Lol!!! Grape. Chill!!!!!
WHAT DID I SAY? WHAT? ALL I SAID WAS IT WAS CUTE. I WASN’T TRYING TO SAY ANYTHING MEAN OR…
gah I feel so bad right now and fghldg
This is soooo cute! Love the final two panels ^^
I wonder what the other cats think of a “dog” lover, would it be similar to the “cat” lover ?
Oh wow……i love this…… <3 this is how rick gets his fans!!! XDDD Likes you alot rick! (Since im a straight male it would be weird if i said i "Love" you)
I wonder if Grape’s gonna find out that Res didn’t mean it in that way, or if Res is gonna find out what he said had a double meaning to it first?
floppy ear O.O
…..i like the floppy ear…0.0
Either way I feel bad for the lot of em I mean Grape for not understanding and getting upset Peanut for getting suplexed and Res for being misunderstood and feeling like he did something wrong D:
I know someone probably said this but is that a maple leaf on Res’ collar? Is he Canadian? o-o
It is indeed a maple leaf and that would be awsum if he were Canadian!
X3 aww cute blush
Poor, poor Grape. Its just so sad what she did. RES JUST SAID IT WAS CUTE!!!!!
Grape, violent as ever (the usual)… only this time it solved nothing.
Hole. Ground. Now. Please.
Often when embarrassed, a person will feel like he or she wants the Earth to swallow them whole, or at least that a hole would open for them to hide in indefinitely.
Some guy handed me a comic said it was a purple cat “MAAAAAAAAAAAAAN” this ain’t a cat this is a comic I GAVE IT A SUPLEX! Oh wait its HousePets! JK:)
What the furry !?
(—- what the fuzz
We thougt about that before them…..i dont know who but someone of us did it.
Seems like no one got it…
Now im going to look like a crazy or jonkie or whaterver you call the drug adicts…
Junkie, Legendario, junkie is spelled with a “u” – much like puppies.
I just keep doing the things wrong…
i dont know i cant deny or be aggre with nothing if not the opposite..
i hope i have said..wrote that properly..
Hey everyone its me MUCH-SNUGGLES!:) I changed my name to promote my Electronic/Techno DJing career!:D
Having grown up with 2 older brothers I can say with complete confidence that that is not a Suplex.
I agree with Res What did he say?
He said that Grape was interested in dogs which he meant that Grape liked hanging around dogs. But Grape took it to mean that Res thought that she was attracted to dogs.
Grape has just been outed.
A wild grape appears grape uses FALCO THROW!
Aw gotta love Res :3 so does he have a crush on Grape? He calls her cute…
Ironically enough, a character in my novel is named Res, and I came up with him a year before I discovered Housepets!. and it’s not a very common name. Huh. Why does he have a Canadian maple leaf collar?
Silly Grape, wrestling is on Monday and Friday, not Wednesday.
Maybe they changed it, so this month they’ll be doing wrestling in a three hour marathon every Wednsday? Oh, wait, wrestling isn’t shown on Discovery Channel…
Awww. So cute Grape!
