Title Text: and you can read that as either regent of the squirrels, or just as my name, having attained squirrel-based superpowers

Sort of called it. I had King finding Sasha in the doghouse not Bailey finding King but I was close.

A Regent fallen from his tree
is what now faces young Bailey.
A fact that she may have to face
is that King’s will has failed this race.
Sasha’s mania has him beat
and forced him out, into retreat.
All the way into the forest;
to a place to get some new rest.
Where she isn’t is where he is,
our King that’s caught in a tizz,
His Queen will have the truth right now.
They’ll work it through. The question’s how?

So if King is King of the Squirrels, does that make Marion one of his subjects? :lol:

I'm glad Bailey was able to find him. Hopefully she'll be able to sort this out.

This is definitely Sasha's doghouse that King built for her. I have a feeling our presence here will guide the story to its conclusion.

First Marion, now King's gone nuts
Running away from the past
So his Queen's come to find him,
And help him chill out at last.
He's at the doghouse in the woods
That he built long ago
For Sasha that she rarely used
Better than sitting in snow.
Here's hoping this'll fix itself
Before King decides to implode,
But Bailey's patient, she'll wait for him
As she's clearly showed.
You're a wonderful person! You can do this! Yes, you, person reading this!

I can see why King fled to the doghouse. He made as a sanctuary for Sasha, so he probably thought of it right away, as a sanctuary from Sasha. I do wonder why he didn't just go to Fox's house, but maybe he just needs or wants to be alone.

My money was on King running into other characters he'd try to rope into helping him with his predicament, but running & hiding from Sasha's Sasha-ness is excellent too. Feels like we're a few strips away from the conclusion of this arc, and I'm curious as to what it's going to end on.
With the right community, getting into a webcomic at the beginning of a brand new arc can feel just as enjoyable and rewarding as being there from the beginning.

He's certainly acting like Marion, or at least channelling Marion's habit of saying absurdist things when he's upset.

I for one would like to know what squirrel powers would entail. Super tree climbing skills? Inhuman sense of smell, but only for nuts? Either way, being a squirrel superhero has a mandate of a large bushy tail, as set by precedent. Where can I sign up?

Poor King. Hopefully when they get all together they can sort this little mix of emotions out, King's sanity over canine relationship habits provided.

I am thinking that they have to be since I'm pretty sure Custom Ink lives in the treehouse with Jessica and Tum also has to be there and its close to Babylon Gardens.

Eh, I'm not sure he said anything absurdist in that strip. "Crying uncle" means you want someone to stop doing something to you. And asking if a squirrel that is biting you has had their shots is only absurd because I doubt wild squirrels get vaccinations in the HPU... and something being absurd is not the same thing as being absurdist.

Basically, what Thomas is saying makes too much sense to count, even if he is wrong.
