Clearly, the original psychic has issues. Shouldn’t she have leaped at the opportunity to explore a mystery temple with dragon and gryphon sigils?
I believe that she was all too aware of the Temple with Dragon and Gryphon sigils, thus her reaction to learning of it.
Am I seeing things or was the first comment at first something about pushing buttons?
He also edited his comment soon after!
To paraphrase Mel Brooks…. It’s good to be the Mod.
+1 Movie Ref for Mr. GarrisonSkunk
sigils? Doesn’t Rick mean symbols?
Otherwise idk what sigils even means
It’s a type of symbol xD
Jeeves is back!
A comedy of errors. Mr. Steward leaving Keene in the zoo now looks VERY suspicious!
It’s not often you get to frame a question with the future perfect
ALT TEXT ^^^^^^^^
Wait so Tarot made her Physic stuff public?
Since when….. Well maybe PsyCon but not sure if that counts…..
Well, its public to people who need her services, anyway.
“The best psychics aren’t in the phone books”
If somebody needs her help, she knows she’ll already have called them for it.
I ain’t never seein’ no perfect like the future perfect
Wow, now Tarot gets to know about hers/pete’s temple first! Go team Dragon!
Wait so there are teams for Pete and Tarot (like the Twilight movies)… cool!
I’m assuming Team Pete consists of Bino and Oceans Two? And possibly Spo?
Well, Pete’s team is rather lacking since he’s a big jerk, King was forced as part of his team and will likely be again when Pete makes it back. But Peanut knows something about Dragon by now and is definitely with Tarot, as is Sabrina, so while a Team Pete might be lacking, there is definitely a team Dragon. Also, I kind of meant like readers who picked sides too.
I now have an image of Peanut and Sabrina in water tribe outfits, Grape dressed up as Toph, and Tarot in a red/orange scarf with a blue arrow on her forehead. Avatar: TLA has clearly corrupted me. In a way that I approve of…
then who would be Zuko… maybe King
What?! Peanut and Grape are siblings, they should be the water tribe clothes, and Sabrina is a psychic, she makes a perfect Toph.
yes i get that but WHO WOULD BE ZUKO!
i would think king because he is techincally on petes side but he helps tarrot so it could only be him right?
Sabrina feels more like Katara, what with the animal outreach and the mystic caring thing, and Grape feels more like Toph, what with the Alligator wrestling and the breaking a broomstick off on kidnapper’s head, to me, personality wise.
i,m personaly following king to whichever team he wants to join. i,m a follower not a leader. and, king and me are very similar. so i will follow away!
GO TEAM KING!!!!!
I rather suspect that Tarot knows about it already.
Due to rules of game, she might not have been allowed to be TOO omniscient, or if she was, then she couldn’t act on it until someone told her of it or something. As far as we know she hasn’t been to this temple yet, so going can help her, why she hasn’t been we don’t know, but we’re gonna find out and it’s good he talked to her.
I suspect that according to the rules of the game this is an *awesome* opportunity for her. Pete’s gonna be $%@#@%#^&-ed.
From what I remember Tarot can only read certain thoughts. For example, if you think “I’m going to call Tarot and ask if she can come over.” then she would be there in a split-second. like in this comic,
Because of this I believe she is going to be the first on the scene
WITHOUT QUESTION! -_-
So, the first phychic Keene called WASN’T Tarot. Just making sure
Anyone but Tarot would’ve screamed and hung up.
Yeah, but I wonder WHY the first physchic scream and hung up, what do she knows ? was she familiar with the dragon and gryphong sings ? Have she saw that symbols before, and that´s why she was afraid ?
Sigil of Gryphon and Dragon is universally a red flag, no sane psychic would go for that .
Mmmmm … touché
They’re a bit like buttons labeled “Push me to probably die.” 90% of the population look at it and just walk away.
Psychics is the cwaziest peoples!
The only psychic Keene called wasn’t Tarot, it seems.
technically she called him :3 PSYCHIC AWESOMENESS!
That’s the point, innit?
I guess you don’t call the best psychics. They call you.
Do they block caller ID?
It would partially depend on what their powers tell them about the person on the other end.
They have survived this long! Always be prepared for anything!
Do you guys notice that now we know how to get a call from Tarot? :3
I have yet to get a psychic calling me, which means there are no good psychics around on this world when you need one or its better I take care of things on my own.
Or you can’t afford them, so they don’t bother calling.
Loven’ keens face in the 5th(?) Panel
6th but close enough
Way too cute. He’s missing the Pac-Man eyes though.
the pac man eyes? the ones like a sideways V?
The overly cute smile in panel 6 reminded me of this. Kids And Old People Not Allowed
From the height restriction sign in Theme Park World.
This should be interesting will Tarot (or in this case Dragon more likely) tell them whats really going on, lie to them about it or find some way to make them stay away? Hmmmm this is going to get very interesting. And It appears other Psychics know about this stuff and don’t like it at all.
If Keene is not being paranoid Steward might also know more about what is happening and might be helping out the Nerds in some way interesting. Though again he could have other motives that have nothing to do with the Nerds.
I kind of took that comment as a (possibly misdirecting) hint that Steward is in league with The Idiot Nephew).
That is a huge possibility and much more likely then my first idea now that I think about it.
Why would Tarot want to make them stay away?
Well I don’t think it would be a really good idea to have them find out their fathers life work was based on a complete lie to win what amounts to a game of D&D.
That’s kind of a thing that would generally tick people off you know. And the Ferrets would have enough resources that even if they couldn’t out and out stop the Game they could likely disrupt it.
They don’t need to find that out, especially if Tarot goes along. But this will give Dragon a good in-game reason to mess around with Pete’s temple!
Wait… I didn’t get it at first, but did he just THINK I need a local psychic and get called by Tarot for it?! ‘Cause that’s awesome.
That was my impression
Tarot is 40% fluff and 40% awesome.
… … … Gotta know, what is her other 20% then? Dragon? Dog? Psychic?
no its Extreme Cuteness!!!!!!
She has about 3% Gracie Allen in her too I think.
no it’s pure (from concentrate) cuteness.
Things could get very interesting if King and/or others decide to play Pete and The Dragon against each other.
I think Bahamut would approve of that! lol
There was a Disney movie called Pete’s Dragon. I wonder if there is a clue in that that indicates where this might go?
It would be interesting if Rick introduces a character who resembles Mickey Rooney. Or at least Mickey Rooney from the nose down.
Personaly I think that that would be to funny to imajin!!
So Tarot runs at least two businesses….she’s one busy Pom.
What’s Jeeves doing in the seventh strip? His arm is in a slightly different postion and there are action lines around it.
Seventh panel, rather.
He may have tried to pull out a business card of some sort! Maybe Tarot’s?
I guess her card would just say:
Tarot – Psychic
Sabrina – Psychic Sidekick
Dont call us, if you need us we’ll call you.
I don’t think psychics have sidekicks. Apprentices or neophytes perhaps, but surely not sidekicks.
so if i need a psychic and i need her i just think about it and….
*phone rings in background*
yes hello… yes i was looking for a psychic… you’ll see me today thanks… goodbye.
You know the thing that interests me more then anything in the strip is why the other Psychic was so afraid of the Dragon and Gryphon symbols and therefore the Temple.
Human Psychics would see it as the end of human rule over animals.
One: Then they would be more interesting in exploring it and stopping it if they were scared of something like that. Two: That was something Pete told Milton so he would move the temple. Pete made all that up it was a complete lie.
The superbeings have the power to change the world through their avatars – just think of how many D&D campaigns have “saved the world” – so there’s no reason to believe he was lying. Pete’s goals are more or less noble, even if he is a jerk.
Pete said he lied about it here http://www.housepetscomic.com/2012/05/25/we-all-dream-for-sundering/ third and fourth panel. As far as we know none of the Nerds have any goals beyond winning what amounts to a game of D&D.
And heck they aren’t even trying to win a game of D&D (U&U in this case) They are playing a game of U&U to find out who will be the party leader of yet another game of U&U. So its like even more pointless and childish.
I’m sorry I mean *They aren’t even trying to win the main game of D&D
In order to retain his followers, Pete would now have to actually work to bring all this about. So… he really dug himself into a hole.
Not really actually; all he would have to do is tell them that he needs to win the Main U&U game (but you know make something up, so as not to tell them about the game itself I guess) so they would keep helping him and then just leave when the game is over. Its not like any of the followers would be able to do anything about it.
The problem is that the scale of the game is huge – hundreds of generations. What Pete has to do to retain any sort of following over that time period is form a major religion, and even then, very few religions can claim to have lasted 5000 years. History has never been kind to god-kings.
Now, there are two ways that a religion can stay strong. Either there must be miracles that prove it to be true, or the tenants of the religion must have deep, personal ramifications. Intangibles. I doubt Pete’s cult-level following has much of the latter, so miracles are required.
Well he can do other Miracles in the mean time anyway. Because he can lie and say to do what he promised Milton he needs to win the game. Then he can do exactly what I said.
Lying might be malice under the do no malice to mortals rule. Also, Pete may not be a complete jerk and actually keep his promise. I do find it odd, though that Tarot feels the whole sapient critters being pets thing a good idea.
Verp I don’t think that Pete can keep his promise even if he wanted to.From the way he was talking in Trial of Heaven to me he made it sound like its something that’s not actually possible to do. Likely because it might get him in trouble with Heaven or something like that.
Even psychics who aren’t good enough to know when not to answer the phone would know when something was too big for them to take on. Shapechanging LARPers with the power of gods? Pass.
Just to go with the alt text;
Panels 6-7 waiting for the phone call:
“This won’t take very long, did it?”
This is going to get very interesting.
I guess you just can’t trust names anymore.
“You’re name is Steward! You must be a good Steward!”
Is his first name Patrick?
“So, it seems he changed his name legally when he heard about the will…”
On the other hand, Jeeves is the one who has cultivated an aura of being overly nosy by questioning everything Keene does, so now it doesn’t seem suspicious when he continues digging for information…
Isn’t making as if you were going to call and then (having someone else) looking into the future one of those things the spirits really don’t like?
Who’s gonna call you? Tarot & Sabrina Spiritbusters. We already believe you!
Bigger on the inside? So it’s like the TARDIS.
‘cept without all the timey-wimey stuff
And without the swishing and screeching and the through time-and-space-ness, but ya, like the TARDIS
And better special effects.
I am very excited to know what happens next.
finely back to the original…er… mane story line.
and yes the best psychics are not in the phone book.
+ Tarot is the best.
I thought the Pridelands Arc was the mane story line?
Sorry, can’t resist a good (bad) pun
Nice to see someone else likes the “let us all sing loudly of our illegal activites!” line
can i join in!!
la la la I stole a car!!! la la
How about a round of A-paws!!
Keene can pronounce parentheses!
Obviously, Keene learned from the master
Parentheses are an advanced lesson….I believe they are pronounced “Fffffffffffeet Tooooofffft….Toooooooffffft Fffffffffffffffffeet.” in the Borge System.
Good thing Charlie Callas did not invent it, or most people would find it unpronounceable.
Psychics make for the best call-center support.
I feel like I laughed at the fourth panel more than I should have…
Just how much does Tarot charges a minute?
Seems pretty difficult to surprise Tarot.
Since Pete promised the equality of animals and humans to get out of the temple, wonder what will really happen. He doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to keep a promise.
I think King is a pretty good example of “equal” human, the Pete way.
I could live with that.
Doubt those in Heaven would approve if Pete did that, though. Then again, they really didn’t do much for what he did to Joel.
Well that was one person, even if that was his plan (which its not because he made the whole thing up), He would likely get in a ton of trouble for it because it would cause so many problems for Heaven it wouldn’t even be funny.
Can’t wait to see more really excited for it!
I love comics made by English majors. Their alt text can be delicious.
Also, sixth panel is made of win. (Though it doesn’t have Made of Win in it.)
THe first time i’ve commented on your comics. This one is just hilarious and cute. That’s one way to advertise for a psychic. XD
Very good suh!
OH THIS IS AWESOME!
All I haft to say to this is lol rilly
tarot clearly is the best choice in this situation
yet ANOTHER of my comments is removed for no reason. Spot on dissension :/
Don’t worry, that happens to the best of us. He’ll just deem something off-topic or just an agreement without any new content. You shouldn’t take it personal.

THIS IS GONNA BE SO AWESOME!!!
For a minute there, I was thinking “If you leave a message on Tarot’s answering machine, she’ll already be at your doorstep before you answer it.”. Then I theorized that Psychic dogs must answer the answering machine like how Peanut must answer the door when it knocks.
typo ~ “If you leave a message on Tarot’s amswering machine, she’ll already be at your doorstep before it arrives”
yay I found the end. Sad face, I now have to wait for new ones.
I know that feeling, I ended up going through the whole thing again.
I remember when that happened to me for the first time.
absolute depression ensues
Oh this can only lead to trouble and mischief, which we will enjoy every second of.
Also can someone explain the whole “mystic(k)al” thing, what is with that k?
The same reason some people spell magic with a ‘k’, I suppose.
Yay! this is going to get interesting with Tarot involved.
I was surprised that Tarot didn’t call him being psychic and all
i think he meant he was surprised she didn’t choose to NOT call
i am too :/
And the alt text about future perfect is right. It’s not often you get to /use/ the future perfect, period. I’m not even sure why English /has/ such a tense anyways. *is such a language-nerd*
The Hitchiker’s Guide ignores the issue of language in time travel, except for pointing out that the term ‘future perfect’ has been abandoned since it was discovered not to be.
Argent, you always have the very best replies. How do you do it?
he’s close friends with tarot. (don’t tell Penut)
i meant don’t tell peanut. sorry it’s really early here.
Oh God, this needs to be a movie. Seriously, that was an inadvertently epic moment/line.
