Rick, I'm not sure if you're on, but this just might have been the perfect way to end this already excellent arc.
As much as I hate to say it to all of you, this would also be a great place to end the comic itself. Almost the whole thing had to do with Peanut loving Grape and being stereotyped as a "cat-lover." It would make an excellent conclusion.

However, since the comic is going to continue, I personally think the best option is to head in the "Sabrina x Fido" direction, since we now know that both Grape and Peanut are aware of it. It would be an excellent direction for the continuity of the comic's overall theme.

In truth, I see a very sharp parallel between "cat loving" and civil rights disputes in the real world. The whole "cat-lover" part shows the prejudice in the canine community, much like the prejudices we have between interracial and same-sex marriages.


Actually, we've known that both Grape and Peanut were aware of it back when we learned of it ourselves.... That was when Peanut took the picture in the first place.

Deep discussion is deep. Honestly, I usually prefer to be more in the emotion of the moment when it comes to a story (a fictional one.. so long as it's not a mystery or something of the sort), rather than get real in depth about things. This is sparking my pondering cap, though.

Yea if Max and Tarot figure out what is happening (Well Max anyway I'm sure Tarot would know easily.) they might try to push them together. But what ever happens It will be good.
Edit: This most likely won't happen for a while anyway (if at all) because I think Rick will milk this by teasing us for a while.

You just hit the right spot!
tarot of course knows everything that is there to know: the only indecision left is about which direction will events take. And that is why she's not taking any open position, for now. My best guess is that if Max himself understood that Grape cares for Peanut more than she does for him, then Tarot could see it as the determining factor and have a talk with Peanut herself. In fact, so far peanut has never took the initiative, despite being madly in love with Grape. Shyness, fear, call it what you want but we never saw him going farther than the 'Please accept this dead chicken!' step, and that was yet another suggestion from an external source.
There is a LOT to happen in year 3 only about this matter. But we know Rick, cruel teasing is all we get for now... *Ack! Ackackackakk!* :mrgreen:

Actually, I think tarot should loose her powers so Peanut feels obligated to assist her trough a normal life, rather then the other way around.

But then she'd be a lot less amusing. This is a comedic strip first and foremost, after all.

I have a feeling something like this is going to happen in the future. but rather, instead of losing her powers, she somewhat listens to the spirits WAY too much. In other words, doesn't think for herself.

For housepets, it would be a bit too much and its not something that I don't think Rick would do. Even if he did it, it would set a different tone for the comic in general. I mean interspieces relationships is one thing, but interspecies marriage is another thing all together. And besides technically they are pets.

Considered Miles and Lucretia, who out of all animals in the comic are both the most "human" and the closest to married, are not officially married, I'm pretty sure that's not something animals do. Even if they are completely sapient, a pet wedding would still be kind of weird, in my opinion.

Personally I think the idea of speculating any changes in Peanut's and Grape's relationship is kind of silly, since considering all the focus they've been getting recently and the bombshell that just got dropped, they aren't going to be advancing too many plots for a while.

I agree as I said before any change that happen are probably going to be more subtle then people think for a while anyway and anything that comes out of it with not be known for some time.

Yes this pretty much this. Rick will tease us with this for sometime before anything substantial comes of it. But at this point I think we have discussed this to the point were there isn't much left to say.

Edit: So at this point I'm done with this unless somebody brings up some interesting point or Monday comes.

Most of those 400+ comments have nothing at all to do with the comic but instead are people making idle chatter which in itself isn't a issue so far.

Well idle chatter is to be expected of all comics, so the fact that this one has so many still means something.

Did anyone else notice that absolutely nothing was resolved? I mean, someone said it before but I thought they were not reading the strip right, but now that I think about it, they jumped from the topic they were gonna discuss in the first place. So, nothing was resolved about why they were mad in the first place....
I think

I was thinking and I'm not sure about this theory. Since Grape has "accepted" Peanut's feelings and stuff, does that mean Tarot no longer has to be there, like she said?

Actually, no. Grape hasn't fully accepted Peanut yet, because to do that would be to reciprocate his feelings, which would "break Max's heart", as Tarot said. Grape might be accepting of Peanut in general, but she's not accepting of his feelings.

No. Grape has known about Peanut's feelings for ages, she's just finally said something. If she wanted to be in a relationship outside of what they have now, don't you think she would have shot down Max last year when they were at the farm? She's all but said "I love you like a brother, but I've got someone who I'm growing fonder of and I don't want to drop that." And Peanut agreed. Most of the issues at hand were because they didn't sit it down and have things out.

It won't slow down the shipping any or the vocal fans who won't be happy with anything but Peanut and Grape but people need to simply accept that the two are as close as they are going to be for now and be happy that both have found acceptable SO's who work well for them. Tarot's as good a match for Peanut as anyone could be and Grape, being a bit rough is well suited for Max.

But you -and maybe I'm misinterpreting what your saying- are ignoring the possibility that it could still happen later. I don't really see what Grape said as an "I see you as a brother" thing to me It seems more like she implied that she doesn't have feeling for him because she isn't attracted to Dogs. Now that could later change, it might not but it could.

Now I've said before and I'll say it again I have no problem with Grape being with Max and Peanut being with Tarot I would be happy if It stayed as is Its not what I want the ending to the situation to be but again Its Ricks comic and he can do what ever he wants.

This is true unless anyone has Inside Info from Rick himself or Rick just tells us (I hope he doesn't) nobody knows what will happen because its still up in the air.
