Post Re: Untold Stories
A character has a near-death experience much like Keene did when his limo went into the briney, leading to a contest between Cerberus and Eudoant with the soul as prize.

This motif could be an intriguing way to present back-stories about someone like Maxwell, Tiger, Rex, Yeltsin, or even Bino as the two argue their case. Other characters might be drawn in for testimonies, perhaps through dreams or conjures.

As an Infernal, Eudoant might propose a wager or try to "buy" the soul who later tries to void the contract by performing some stunt or quest included as an "escape clause". The dino-imp might return to mess with the imperiled soul or, on the other hand, try to help out and wreck Eudoant's plot.

....and, of course, Kitsune lurks just off panel.

...I wanna know what Joey Fido and Bino's past was like before they were adopted, or perhaps Joey and Fido attempting brotherly bonding...I only say this because I noticed how little we see the three of them together

How fox Dragon and Pete remember their old lives, despite Kitsune saying they wouldn’t remember.

Kitsune's words weren't about their memories of demigods at all, he doesn't bring it up at all in that panel. He's talking about specifically how long they have to live. That's to close a loophole of them knowing the exact length of their sentence and so basically ignore their own mortality.

I was serious about my first suggestion. I'm in the camp that that arc had the potential for some really good jokes. One thing I noticed fans fixated on in the old comments is Sasha was going to go walkies with King but was never shown doing so.Image
Is this collection of untold stories for a future arc in regular Housepets! fashion or is going to be for something separate from and in addition to the three comics a week like All the King’s Men or the the three Housepets through the ages stories (7500 BC, ancient Egypt, and American nomad). Ya know, the reason why Sabrina can address the readers in the American nomad story fits the description of stories you've implied but never told.

Oh oh oh! What about Peanut and Dragon's one date? Unless we did actually see it, but it seems like whenever Tarot and Peanut spent time together, Dragon ever only briefly interacted with Peanut. I have always wondered if their Halloween broomstick ride was their date, but maybe I'm wrong.

Post Re: Untold Stories
Here's everything I NEED TO KNOW:

I need to know about Joel's childhood. There are so many references to how he grew up and his life before his introduction. He comments how he represses feelings and Bahamut mentioned the horrible things he did. How was he arrested the first time? His college years? His kidnapping? The comment about getting computer and his "old habits" was sketchy. What were his parents REALLY like because everyone assumes they were horrid people and I keep referencing them as monsters but we don't know what they were REALLY like. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD what is his age? Is he the same age as a dog as he was human? We know he has to be in his thirties by now but I GOT TO KNOW.

We need to know how Satsu and Mungo are related. That would be an interesting arc.

What is going to happen to the unspeakable evil Keene unleashed aka the dino demon? We know that it's important but how will it coincide with Pete&Dragon/Mr. Steward's upcoming storyline?

We need to know was going on with Max and Rufus... Since that is what you were referring to in the original question I stand by my comment of we GOTS to know.

I always wanted a arc for Rockstar, North Star, and Darth Vader. They have been around forever but they've been tertiary characters even though they live exciting lives. I mean they showed up at King's door with armor and weapons.

After ten years I feel like the other characters should be moving on with their relationships. King and Bailey are the only ones with kids. The human characters should be having families by now if nothing else.

We have to, have to, HAVE TO know what is going to happen to Res now that he can shift into a tiger. OMG I died when I saw that. That is the most epic thing to happen in the comics in a long time. Speaking of which, we need more exotic animals in the comics besides from the zoo. Jata was an interesting character because he was a leopard. Exotic pets would be a nice inclusion for the series.

Again, King is still the most dynamic character because he has such a dramatic/interesting backstory but it is going to waste because he know so little about his life. IF nothing else we need his FATHER to show up. OMG I could totally see him coming to Bill's house and not know King is his son then later finding out and then leading to a hallmark moment.
Think about King opening the door and going like "Dad?!" Then Mr. Robinson giving him this quizzical look and King backtracking. Then we go into flashbacks about King's life leading to this reunion. King has to come to terms with his estranged relationship and we all learn a valuable lesson about life.

Speaking of which was what that "bet" Joel's mom made? We never got an explanation about that either. That just leads to more unanswered questions. Like how did she end up in heaven? How did she die? Honestly that scene needs to be expanded.
King says “I can explain. Since you didn’t love me enough as a child I made terrible life choices which in turn caused my life to be twisted into a cosmic joke by a sociopathic demigod. You were terrible parents and now I have emotional scars that never healed. I never learned to deal with my emotions or my traumatic childhood. But I found some happiness only to once again be robbed of it once again. I vow to be a better parent and a better person than you or Dad ever were to me. That is why, Mother, I am now a corgi.

I have a theoretical answer to that one. Peanut saw Joel as a human in Heaven is Not Enough. He doesn't really say anything at the time, but he is already read in on the celestial game, and is definitely smart enough to make the connection on his own. Then he could have told Grape, who would have told Max.

OR Max just knows that King was involved in the whole celestial Magic(k)® thing before and is throwing out his name as someone who would be better suited to tagging along with this jaunt.

That was my thought but I need undeniable evidence that proves that. Something in writing that says "this is what really happened, so stop asking."

Post Re: Untold Stories
A lot of your questions already have answers given in the comic itself, but really, why would you want to be spoon-fed all these superficial points? Max knows King's already involved because it's not hard to assume that he would know.
Rick has never been in the habit of spelling out every detail if it can readily be assumed, because "down that way lies madness." It creates an impossible situation for Rick if the audience can't make some logical jumps and be satisfied that things probably occurred roughly as they imagine them: especially over points that are not important for the story one way or the other (e.g. the exact way that Max learned about King's involvement). Even if these points might be interesting to see at some point, we don't need them.
Please don't make Rick's life super difficult by demanding tiny details be spelled out.

Post Re: Untold Stories
I, for one, applaud this list. The original request was "for suggestions on stories I've implied happened in the comic but never told" and I think this fits that the best (better then seconding other suggestions of bringing up questions raised in the latest strip). The untold part doesn't have to be the focus of the story. It's possible Rick is inspired to write a story where King is stuck with Max and needs to act like how Max thinks a dog acts and talking about the cosmic game is only a side thing. Howl, the "meaningful thing" Sasha did wasn't until the last strip of the arc when she reasserted her position in her relationship with Bino. In all, for a request like this I think more options is better than fewer.

Post Re: Untold Stories
To clarify, I don't have a problem with the list itself. It's a list of questions big and small that they want answered. My personal opinion about whether or not any one of those questions really belongs here doesn't matter, cause Rick will scroll through this thread at his leisure and select questions that strike his fancy. Which is why I didn't respond after that post.
I responded after the post that clarified the author's reason for asking (one of the questions). We've seen the "I cannot be satisfied until Rick himself explains every detail that I feel has not been adequately explained" person on this forum before. It is that belief that I wish to challenge. It is an expectation of Rick to do the impossible, and I would much prefer we not see that here again.
So carry on asking questions. Ask obvious questions. Ask mundane questions. Ask perfectly absurd and maybe even some inane questions. But if Rick decides not to answer your question or clarify something for you, then you must be satisfied to fill in the blanks on your own or accept the explanations of others as close enough.

I refuse to let this forum or the internet in general ruin my enjoyment of the comic.

You have not known suffering until you have sat through a three hour workshop listening to a group of grad students argue about an "author's intent." Or had a group of students ask you a bunch of ridiculous questions/get all the facts wrong about a story you wrote then immediately complain when you put the explanation and information in the story because "they were supposed to figure it out for themselves." Or when you ask your writing professor what you are supposed to do when you come across this paradox and never get a real answer.

"Whatever things an artist owes the public, an explanation is not one of them."

My attitude has always been that it's Rick's world, and I'm basically a guest. Sure, I've participated happily in the invitations to offer story suggestions...usually by saying I'd like to see a certain character developed more (Daisy); a particular pairing explored further (Max and Sabrina; Fox and Fido); or a backstory explored (Grape's life before the shelter; Sasha and her "Daddy"). I'm not barking at any who want more and maybe just a lack of imagination on my part, but there are threads sometimes that contribute to the saga by going unanswered. Reagrds.
