[2019/01/04 - Trickster/Father Figure]
Title Text: will also accept "daddy dearest"

It helps when your adoptive parent is already close to you, I guess.

Also, apparently fur farms really are a thing in this world.

Nice to see Kitsune having a girlfriend.

Also, I think this pretty much confirms that the kits are Pete and Dragon.

Yes!!! Even if Biological is not yet certain, my belief that Kitsune was their “daddy” as I put it has been confirmed... also, guess that means Kitsune is sticking around as a kinda mortal character

I am not sure if I am correctly remembering that foxes are referred to being tricky creatures in folklore.
I have ideas and I occasionally put them down.

Isn’t Kitsune the best? Helping raise kits that are not his and that he’s not related AT ALL.

Also they make a cute couple

Ohhhhh, this is just too perfect. I had a feeling Kitsune would be keeping an eye on those two, but hooking up with the fox-mom to be their "dad?" This is better than any scenario I expected. Go Kitsune! :lol:

This does get me wondering. Has Kitsune hooked up with mortals before? Second, Is Kix aware of Kitsune's true nature?

Coyotes are too.

Here's something I found online. Kitsune - They are described as "tricksters" with no care for the concept of right or wrong. ;)
This is very wrong. :lol:

And now we see Kits' sense of fun
as King nearly re-meets his remaker.
Craig comes in as Winter’s begun
and he’s freezing his little salt shaker.
We learn a lot more about Kix,
the mother who’s all she can be.
We learn where she learnt all her tricks
and how she came to be free.
Where, in all this, is our Draig,
Arch-sister of the malevolent god?
The one he’d avoid like the plague
as being friends is just a little bit odd...

A question regarding my work of translation: did Kix make a pun about her owner dying (buying the farm), or was just stating the acquisition of a fur farm?

I'm still wondering how hunting works in the Housepets-verse. Like, if you were to go deer hunting, would you have to hash out an agreement with the local coyotes or wolves so that there's no conflict? How would you keep the rabbits, mice, squirrels and other assorted animals from tipping off the deer?

So does this mean the fox bodies Pete and Dragon inhabit are in fact hallow shells they inhabited? Or is this a space and time thing?

Kitsune says "her two kits" instead of "our two kits" so I think he joined after they were born. I would say she doesn't know her tall glass of cream is a demigod because she doesn't know her kids are demigods and while those facts aren't necessarily related, I don't think she'd find out one without the other.

I beleaive the term for this is a garden-path sentence. There are several definitions for "bought the farm" and while listening to her with the information up to the point she says that it would be safe to assume she's using it as a euphemism for dying. The idea is that what she says next forces you to recontextualize what she said before giving it a grater impact; emotionally going through "aww, that's sad" before getting to "ugh, that's terrible" makes you give more thought to just how bad for a fox to be owned by an someone with a fur farm. As a reader, we're more detached and can appreciate the humor in her pun with how different those two situations are.

Short answer: my interpretation is her previous owner is alive, she ran away to save her life, and her line is this strip was indeed a pun.

I'm deeply touched by Kitsune's newly discovered paternal sentiments - and such an indulgent father, too.

So, Kix, are you a real Fox or a Celestial with a cover-story?

Listen, I’m not saying this look necessarily means anything, but it definitely doesn’t discount that Kitsune may have gotten together with this Vixen before Craig and Draig existed

It's possible that said look developed after the birth of the kits. Only thing that separates mated foxes is death, so it isn't hard to believe that her mate died and Kitsune is helping out.

"-Stop being so weird!
- Stop being so weird, 'daddy'" XDDD

So Craig and Draig are being raised by Kitsune ^^ Not surprising.
Still, it's kinda strange that they seem to have retained some memory of their afterlife.

And it's nice to see Kitsune saved a vixen from a fur farm.
Though unlike what he says, it's most probably for the sole reason that she's Pete's and Dragon's new mom and that he wants to have fun tormenting the two during their mortal lives. But then again, that might not have excluded a genuine will to help Kix.
I wonder how much of Kitsune's personality is actual kindness besides all the trickstery and trolling. His speech to Tarot after Temple Crashers 2 seemed pretty kind, but strange since he tells her to be happy she survived although he's a god and he himself could have helped them all survive (and could have fixed the whole situation) very easily. So, I don't know...

Also, why does Bailey seem disturbed by wild animals coming here? Given her connection to the wolves, she shouldn't have any problem with that, should she?

Besides his "trickstering", GK does like to fancy himself a "teacher of life lessons".

We did see Pete and Dragon depart for mortality back in Australia - in what form they landed there remained undisclosed nor did the process of their reincarnation (if that's the correct term). How a Kix-Kitsune "shipping" factors into this, I'll let Rick reveal.

....it'll be fun, whatever. ;)
