And is that a female deer? It looks too big to be a fawn and it has no antlers....

... Now i want Grape and Sabrina using that crystal ball :(

But seriously, Tarot is ultra-cute the way she is. I also found it funny the local wildlife knows about her <3

I got the joke right away. and I do so enjoy a good lame pun.

It is causing me to wish to fawn over Mr. Griffin.

The deer look like kangaroos..... Awesome.

I am loving these one offs just as much as the others. I just like one offs in general.

And Tarot caters to the wildlife? I thought that was the job of The Opener Of Ways! :lol:

Actually it doesn't surprise me at all that Tarot would know and cater to Wildlife since she lives with Sabrina and Sabrina takes care of wildlife (well mostly gives them to Fido anyway) and is well known to them.

Well, Tarot is looking into the future, so it could be children?

So here we have a doe that doesn't have any bread. If the deer paid with its horns, then I guess the buck stops there. Or maybe it's just fawn and games?

Isn't it because "dear" is pronounced the same way as "deer"? She said "dear" 3 times, and she saw 3 deers in the crystal ball. That's the pun, I think...

Also, her eyes didn't turn green. She's not actually seeing in the future, the deer paid her for nothing!

But the Deer didn't pay her (as far as I can see) and ever since Theme Park World we've known that seeing the Future is something that can be learned she wouldn't need Dragon. Though its unknown how this is done or if you need to have magical talent before hand.

But her eyes glow green when she's using her own powers, not the Dragon's powers. See:

Edit: I read Alex's post wrong. Alex anytime her eyes are green she is Channeling Dragon she is using Dragons powers there and trying to teach Sabrina to see the future on her own.

Are you sure? I thought her eyes glow green when she uses her powers. Like when she looked for the remote, did she really need to channel the Dragon back then?

Post Re: One Offs Set #23: Old People Jokes
Considering Dragons speech bubbles were green and her eyes were completely Green when she was transforming into Dragon yes I would say that's the truth. Plus she was talking to/needed "The Spirits" a.k.a. Dragon when she was looking for the Remote,Telling that Prophecy at the end of n-pile date, and everything she did in Imaginate Too! as well. All times when her eyes were Green.

Most of her powers come from Dragon we are just not sure how many do. It might be all or it might only be a few. So considering that seeing the future is something that can be learned, as seen with Sabrina, its likely she knows how to do it on her own without Dragons help, though it might be weaker/less accurate then when she is using her help.

Edit: clarified somethings

I think the crystal ball makes it easier, so she doesn't need Dragon's power, but everything else does.

Actually I was wondering if it would distract from the joke if I had her eyes glow green but apparently I was wrong and just the opposite happened.

You remember when her eyes glowed in the theme park strip, where everyone wouldn't just let that be, either?

I just assumed her eyes weren't glowing because she was using a crystal ball. In the theme park strip she was doing it without any aid whatsoever.

I just went back to remember: I count at least 4 comments that asked and 2 of them with plenty of responding comments with Sabrina in the mix @_@

Some common themes just take awhile for the fans to get use to. Considering you're not able to get certain tasks done enough, Tarot for example wouldn't be asked about the eye thing much at all eventually.

But no matter what, fans will ask regardless. <.< Whether they are new or not is debatable.

So wait a second I'm a bit confused (and quite frankly feel a bit stupid at this point) was I wrong?

I was going to wonder how Keys got up there, but then I realized (s)he's a cat.
