Yes, you are small and adorable, sometimes it's the only thing that keeps people from throttling you immediately, Mr. "Shorty" Milton.

he;s afrain King may be like Edward Elric when someone calls him short (meaning extremely angry and violent). Of course Jessica could probably take King.

Two words: Go Jess!
Poor King, of course she is right, and he probably knows that, and he surely needs a rational scolding. It's only that he can't even explain WHY he's being so anxious.

Jess. Never one to push if a punch will do the trick...



Do not let your ear be caught by the short, good King.
Just let Jess tell you of the sane knowledge of the wild
Her wisdom shines, eclipsing fears' foetid, horrid ring.

Even though you know her words mean everything
you blot them in disgust at that one little word?
Do not let your ear be caught by the short, good King.

On hearing her words, King, your heart should sing
rather than lock up and look to misunderstand.
Her wisdom shines, eclipsing fears' foetid, horrid ring.

Your fears should be lifted, a beautiful thing to begin,
as you consider her words a present to your future.
Do not let your ear be caught by the short, good King.

Let Zach cool the way for dear Jess, let his hope for her win
as she battles to keep the in-content Corgi staying on side.
Her wisdom shines, eclipsing fears' foetid, horrid ring.

And now, to Bailey your thoughts should race, dear thing
as you consider how much, if heard, your fears hurt her.
Do not let your ear be caught by the short, good King,
Her wisdom shines, eclipsing fears' foetid, horrid ring.

No matter how many years pass, it still strikes me as funny that they call him short, given how, ya know, he used to be taller than all the other characters.

Nah, I think Zach just wants to keep things polite and amicable and such.

But the way Zach worded it, "She, uh, heard it in a rap song!" makes it sound like he's trying to cover something up.

He is. He's trying to cover up the fact that she knows exactly what she's saying. If she'd just 'heard it' somewhere she might be ignorant to it's meaning.

And I love how she rephrased 'in the opener's name' in that panel too.

Wow, Jessica is my new favorite character! I find it funny how a feral from the woods knows more about relationships than a former human. :lol:

Well, I'm sure instinct works really well for ferals regarding relationships. Humans, however, tend to be more of a "live and learn" type. Heck, this may be King's first relationship, we don't know if he's had previous girlfriends, but if he did, seems they didn't end well.

I like how Jess has outranked King here as the default voice of reason...

Also, I like how Jess is here in general...

Also... "What in YOUR name"... Nice one...

Well he was more the voice of "stop being vague and answer all of my questions or else!" Which didn't work out due to his stature. He did make himself taller for a while though in heaven.

By the way, King is technically short by choice, so why should that offend him?

Find it funny that Jess is being faithful to Zach's religion again and that she has to be the voice of reason instead of the wolves. Though i'm not arguing. It's a greatly unexpected turn :3

also, poor Zach wants to say something, but can't. X3

Looks like Jessica knows Bailey pretty well, and even more than her husband. :P Your discourse is not wrong, you got what's her nature, but the way you're talking to King, is so. :| But I know you're awesome with that! :D Poor King, it's all because of the anxiety of the event, he needs only some cuddles. :( Only Fox can understand him now... Where is he? I'd like to hear something from him about this story. :roll: You're so funny in your attempt to justify that word, Zach. ;) You could try with another source, but keep in mind that she's a feral, so, anything was going to be a failure. :P

The correct term is "rat with pointy teeth."

I think Lucretia could. After all she does have a protective streak toward the Corgi, plus she spent a lot of time with him.^^
King. "What I can't tell you, Jess, is that I used to be a human. I was turned into this adorable-looking self, but still can't help being scared like my old self. Plus, every-single-time something really wonderful was happening in my life, this cosmic jerk (the same who turned me into doggy) came and tried to steal that happiness away. Last time, it was my wife who sacrificed herself for me. Oh, yes, the cosmic jerk is out of the game now. but now I have nightmares that one of my pups will be born with yellow, malicious eyes and then I REALLY will freak out, and if you think it's confusing, well try and LIVE it!" *Kings pants and fall on his knees*

Opossums aren't rodents in any sense. King is more closely related to Zach than Jessica is to a rat.

Calling a corgi a short wolf, on the other hand, that's taxonomically accurate. Dogs are a subspecies of the wolf (canis lupus familiaris vs canis lupus lupus).
