Post Re: Arc #47: A Respite in the Country
I love King arcs. They have the best embarrassing moments throughout the comic. I can't wait to see the awkward situations. I'm eagerly waiting for the next comic. King and Bailey interacting is going to be hilarious. I can't wait to see King's face get red again.

I enjoy the discomfort of King a little too much.

They still could since Grape did give him permission to be mushy with her. You never know the story isn't over yet.


Awfully optimistic, aren't we? The latter part is true though.

Yeah, that would be stupid.

That's why the fanfiction are there for. So you can create your own stories based on the comic. xD.

Until Rick says its not going to happen or the comic ends there is still a chance. I think its a better chance then most people think but that could just be the shipper in me talking.

Oh wow, I never noticed that. I'm sure we'll see them closer to Christmas time. The cuteness is far more than Rick is capable of passing up!

Rick did say on his Google+ that there will be no more long arcs Until December ("Okay that is it, no more long arcs . . . until December" is the direct quote), so maybe it will focus on the two of them (or one of them anyway) since its been a while. At least I'm sure they will get a one off or two (maybe not together) soon.

Actually so you guys don't get your hopes up despite having no input (AGAIN) I'll just say that I'm not going to focus on Peanut/Grape again until January. But you guys will LOVE what I have planned.

hmmm its a long arc that won't focus on Peanut or Grape and it won't focus on King most likely as he just had an arc. (though its possible I guess) I'm gonna guess Sabrina and Fido, Sasha or the Nerds (namely Pete most likely).

I think Planned for the Peanut and Grape arc in January. (it could be for the December arc but the wording makes me believe its the P&G arc.) And I always believed a Long Arc was an arc that was a month or more. Edit: what Rick said

I don't mind being updated, but i appreciate the spoiler <3

Although it leaves me curious what will go on this December, I find the idea that Peanut and Grape are being saved for the new year afterwards really neat afterwards. Wonder what year 2012 will be like!

Okay, WHY do King's eyes look like that in the last panel?

Also, clearly Fox doesn't have a problem with this at all.... Wonder how that's going to play out?

And how does King know it's waterproof?

Oh, REAL nice to mention that fact earlier, King! :roll:

I wonder if Fox will in fact encourage this?

I predict an awkward Thanksgiving dinner moment.

Have a safe journey north, Rick!

I daresay, Bailey looks quite dashing in the first panel. I also liked the detail of the belt collar, though it seems strikingly similar to Bino's.

Is it just me or does Bailey seem fairly awkward around him as well?

Hmmmmm, I wonder how King's gonna react? He seemed pretty enamoured in the last panel.
how long is he gonna hold out before "going native" (if he does at all)
or is this just gonna make his decision not to get romantically involved more difficult?
I'll be taking bets now......
:P

Duplicate that sentence while changing "dog" to "human" and that's my position too.

I still don't think Rick's going to make a decision on King anytime soon.
too many cool ideas left to explore.

Great first panel by the way. But I can't look at that sound effect the same way thanks to Archer.

And I don't know if I've ever seen King so adorable. I dare someone to show me a better King than than!

You're implying that we can only explore King's character when he is King. If he turned back to Joel he is still the same person. Now he's just a human who was attracted to a dog at one point.

Although it would be weird to have a strong recurring human character in Housepets.

I kind of feel like human Joel wouldn't fit the comic very, but that's a good point, we could always see Joel become a major character.

We have a swear jar?
Im Bicycle Repair Man (see what I did there? :P man I'm clever!)

Joel/King's search for identity is something ripe to be explored over a long period of time, plus I think that King will be used to show us more about the cosmic nerds.
If I had to guess Rick has a few cool ideas kicking around with King's predicament, so having him pick between dog and human now doesn't seem likely to me.

Post Re: Arc #47: A Respite in the Country
You know though, I've been thinking about this plot a bit. And have thought of at lest two other instances in mainstream, there may be more, in which something similar happens. Here's what I mean: Main character A falls in love with/has crush on minor/side character B, the story is full of awkward moments and interludes, until finally, A confesses to B. What normally happens: B is attached to sometihng someone else, A has to leave B, B (in at least two cartoons) runs off with side character C, A doesn't even get a chance and something happens to B, A makes a complete idiot of themselves and loses whatever chance he had with B, or something vice versa. There's a lot of ways this could go yet.

I think King just turned a corner. He's going native. :P
