Re: 2016/04/29 - The Second

It's an old, pretty well dead saying for people who performed a lot of functions... 'how many hats do you wear?' No matter how hyper (or ADD) the mortal you're comparing her to, Cerberus can easily top them. ...even if the powers that be do suggest that working more closely with mortals isn't an act...

The fact he 'survived' that is telling me he's already left his body behind, but hopefully that just means near-death experience instead of actual death. I cannot imagine it being enjoyable-if it wasn't painful it would still be vertigo-inducing. But I've never claimed to be a mustelid, so...

I'm sorry, sir/madam, but Keene is strictly PG decadent. That means he will fill the swimming pool with jello, but not because he was intending to wrestle in it.

Re: 2016/04/13 - When In Heaven

I think Cerberus will show up to calm him down after he figures out he's not exactly on a material plane, Kitsune will appear only if it's to be cryptic about his bartering with Pete and Karishad, if he shows up at all, will be proof it's some kind of hallucination. If I've got it right from reading...

Re: Arc 100

Nothing is impossible, particularly in a webcomic. They may show up again by fall, aged far more by the 60-odd years of being mortal than from the million and one years Pete dated Cerberus. I do think it's highly unlikely, and that Rick seems to have a fairly complete plot he's working through. All ...

Yep, definitely more Grape's triumph than Peanuts' attempted evil gleam. I'm sorry, pup, but no matter what you may have read recently it can only let you pretend you have the evil genius of a Sima Yi-you don't have 'evil' in you. (That was Hefei, but I don't know Sunomata offhand.)

Re: Arc 100

Kitsune sending them back to a point where they can live their mortal lives and be ready to rejoin Heaven late this spring sounds like time travel to me.

Maybe something about Sabrina getting sick and tired of Spo interrupting romantic moments and striving to find a different home... wi...

The ewok who captured Han et al in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi was nicknamed Wicket. His full name was actually Wicket W. Warwick, which means you can see his initials in every URL.

[webcomic] A Miracle of Science

With people already threatening withdrawal during this guest week(s) or saying they're already suffering it, I thought I'd share one of my favorite older comics. It's not as colorful as Housepets by any means, and it has a furry quotient of zero (just to warn those of you who feel that's a deal-brea...

A pet, no.
