Yes, let's not go down the road of mocking hyperbolic stereotypes of TV show tropes. What do you want to see in a Housepets! TV show and how could the adaptation to TV be done well?

Re: The Demigods, yay or nay?

Yeah, why state something that's already pretty obvious to most people? It's important that we know that Keene isn't dead, but... well, he's not dead. What more did you want Rick to say? Why did he go to heaven briefly if he wasn't actually dead? I don't see that as an important detail. What else? W...

Re: The Demigods, yay or nay?

Your argument comes across as hyperbolic to me. You've mostly been saying that you found this to be unacceptably ambiguous and then thrown around criticisms of plot holes and narrative inconsistencies. But your subjective reading of this just isn't enough for such claims to hold much weight with me....

Re: The Demigods, yay or nay?

Again, you're the only one I've seen who was this confused. I guess it wasn't clear to you, but that doesn't necessarily mean the comic isn't expressing the idea clearly enough. Keene was assumed dead by everyone in heaven simply because he was there in heaven, but we never actually got official wor...

I actually didn't know that you wanted to be a director. I hope you can live that dream some day.
But, yes, that does hurt. It's hard to see doors closing in front of you. I know that hurt, and you are perfectly justified to feel it here. Don't be ashamed of that.

Yeah, bringing a character to a low point is a common story-telling device.
