[ Callback Theater ]

Title Text: Airbud is a lot more interesting when you know what the dog is REALLY saying

Peanut is always super-adorable.

Also, you all just lost the game.

Again.

So she can see the future but doesn't see that bringing it up at all already ruined part of the date? Also how much does Peanut even know about the game, Dragon basically told him "that's a story for another time" during We're Snowed In.

I'm still going with "dogs talk cats don't so nyah".

And then Peanut runs home, never to go on dates again. The stress of the game is just too much for him.

I also get a kick at seeing Tarot having surprises here and there. You figure she would be prepared for this, but I personally think she left the spoiler charts at home. =3

So either they really can just understand dogs or Tarot is using some kind of psychic projection thing. Both of these, again, make me question exactly why Tarot let Max and Grape go without at least informing them about this.

Also I'm guessing that it has to do with the game ending in a year, Or that the whole reason she started the relationship with him is to help Dragon win the game.

This is exactly why I don't like Tarot. My interpretation of Pete asking "Why is your avatar still with the dog?" and Dragon's guilty expression with "Tarot still loves him." was that the initial intent was simply to trick Peanut into falling in love only to foil Pete's scheme.

Just because Tarot actually fell in love with Peanut doesn't mean the original intent wasn't entirely self-serving and callous.

Okay okay, I'll admit, the alt. text pretty much proves that dogs can talk but cats can't.

Wasn't the last time the Game was mentioned was back when the comic wasn't colored?

In the context that Peanut means, yes the last time that version of The Game was talked about was when it wasn't colored.

I thought the game wasn't a thing anymore...

THE GAME however, looks like some of the speculation was right, what sort of juicy details will be revealed?

And no, I don't think Peanut realizes what the game is. At all.

the alt text means that like in our world, people only hear dog noises, but Tarot and Peanut know what he's actually saying since they're dogs

Also, the alt text brings very amusing thoughts to my mind.

Huh, took a second for me to realize what game Peanut was thinking. Oh, well, I typically don't remember trivial details.

And Tarot, do you really think it was a good idea to bring up something like that on a date? I'm not sure, but I don't think it's recommended to let your boyfriend know that something really serious will come up at the beginning of the date.

Love her reaction in the last panel, though. It's like she's seriously starting to notice what she'll have to put up with.

I was actually gonna say that I thought this is what she is going to tell Peanut:
Tarot: "So yeah, the Spirit Dragon is fighting another spirit, and in order to win, I have to beat the other spirit's main lackey, who happens to be King.
I need you to help me get a head start by breaking King's legs."
Peanut: "Okay! : D"

This is the second witness to Tarot talking who just happens to be wearing 'Dragon Green' clothes.

In matters concerning 'the game'
Tarot is a newcomer without knowledge
Nothing, once admitted, can be the same
and it doesn't work to her advantage.

Thinking of the game means you'll lose;
a fact Tarot has now acknowledged.
It's the worst term she could possibly use
It's no wonder she's embarrassed!

There's only one little old lady here
shushing the dogs in the cinema pew
She's wearing some familiar gear
It's got kind of a... Dragon Hue?
There's nothing to stop Tarot talk of the game
but is the Dragon watching all the same...

At first I thought that woman
To a chinese granny stereotype,
But now, as pointed by the welshman,
The image of the dragon I cannot wipe.

She does seem to carry,
Right there, over her head.
A tiny serpent, green and creepy,
On this, some light needs to be shed.

This an obvious foreshadowing
O weird stuff to soon come.
They better start quickly revealing,
Ere our interest be long gone!

All it means is that the dogs in the audience can understand the dog on the screen. Also, I imagine the old lady would hush them whether she could understand them or not.

Here's a great Science Fiction short story about what it's like being Tarot:

And just like that, one online comic author made so many people lose the game. And I was going going on months without losing.

Does anybody else think Peanut looks like Air Bud in that last panel?

Either Tarot is using Jedi mind tricks on the population, or Gallifrax is definitely NOT like our universe. There's no way they'd get away with these kinds of shenanigans in a universe with this high a reality level.

More like the universe of Disney and Bluth.
