Squeak wants to know if that sci-fi growth ray to make her Joey's size is anywhere close to existing...

Tarot pulls Squeaks’ card
as Sandwiches play Snap hard.
Joeys’ heart no longer concealed
as Tarots mysteries are revealed.
The cards dealt Peanut by his hand
are not the ones that either planned.
Question is, is it an attack by Grape
that colours the cloud for malevolences’ sake?
Squeak wants to know the hearts power;
Peanut just wants to get out of the shower.
Grape’s hoping she can win this hand.
Tarot’s finding the future’s not planned...

According to the tags that's Spo.

Too tall to be that stormtrooper, surely?

Spo stacks the deck of life
as Peanut comes to strife.
Tarot is confused by the card
as Grape finds playing Snap hard.
Spo wants to peek on ahead
to see the chance of sharing a bed.
Peanut turns a smile to a frown
as he just tries not to drown
Grape looks for Mr Bun
as Tarot fears the end begun
as Spo finds the future occluded
and Peanut watches, confounded.

well, funnily enough, playing cards are ALSO used to see the future. so, she can still do her job if she knows how to read them :3.

Poor Grape, three of swords is one of the most troublesome cards. (Symbolizes difficult / harmful decisions)

Awesome one-shot none the less, love it!

If Grape and Peanut are seeing physical effects from the cards, does that mean one of them has a Spark of Power? Both have been exposed to powers enough over that last few years, did it leave a mark on them?

enough with the filler, resolve the bloody cliffhanger already.

So basically, Grape and Tarot unknowingly exchanged decks at some point.

But how is Grape (unpurposefully) creating a raining cloud over Peanut with the cards she's holding? Or maybe it's Peanut who did that to himself with the cards he's holding?

EDIT: Plus, isn't it a fortune-telling deck (used to predict the future), and not a magic spell deck with physical effects?

Decades ago, there was a character named "Joe Btzfkx" who a permanent rain cloud over his head and radiated bad luck wherever he went. (The comic was "Li'l Abner"). Hope Peanut hasn't drawn that hand. Since he's playing with Grape, I thought they'd be playing "Fish". Regards.

I'm okay with a bit more filling, there have barely been any one-offs in the last years, and a change in tone is very much appreciated.

I'd love for this to be a thing

That would be other other side effect of the Gate of Mystery? Or Yggdrasil Root Beer?

Eheh, quite a funny scene. :D But I wonder, how can Peanut don't realize to be using the wrong deck of cards? :P Yeah, maybe the little storm on his head could refresh him mind. ;) But don't worry, Tarot, surely there's already who uses a set of French playing cars to tell fortune. You could learn that, too. :)

Maybe it's an OS X thing ...

almost thought this was a two panel one-off for a moment. Tarot should really look behind the curtain more. x3

Had to reread those cards in Grape's hands. So much bad foreshadowing D:

Technically, Tarot ~ you can still read fortunes with them.

Anddddd i like the way they look when sitting on those boxes :3

Click on the strip name and it'll take you to the archive page for the strip, where the tags do show up.

What's that? There's a vacation to the beach going on right now!? Golly gee that sure does sound fun! What was happening in the temple again?
What's a temple? Ah well, the memory escapes me, guess I'll just have to enjoy these beach related pet antics for now!

As long as it's cute, adorable and comical. Otherwise, all bets are off.

Let's just hope they're only playing Poker with those tarot cards and not something like Yu-Gi-Oh! (putting tarot cards in the attack position is not a good idea)

I'd be OK with that.

I mean you do this without compensation or reward so who are any of us to question the manner in which you present it, or the direction in which you wish it to go.

That being said, I'd really like to see the anthro version of Thomas and Sophia should that project renew.

I'm more surprised out of all the years of this comic - not one strip poker comic.

Well considering that the line between clothed and naked is collar v no collar, strip poker would be a very short game.
