Certainly. I'd be interested to see what you and others have in mind as to what King would do if such a scenario arose. As always, I'm open to suggestions.

In exchange for his help, Pete has to be Kingley's servant for a little while.

Pete has no snowball chance in hell to convince King. The gryphon has lied, manipulated, caused pain, separated King and Bailey, threatened, and did all horrible things to win a petty game with his sister. King has absolutely no reason to believe Pete, no matter what Pete could say or do. And if pleads came to threats, King would only be more and more convinced that he was right.
Pete cannot do anything anyway, King's choice sealed his own fate to who he is now.
The only one who could convince King and Bailey to help Pete is Cerberus, the gryphon's former girlfriend.

But hey, if Pete is on his own, there is a whole block of pets who DON'T know him he can go to and beg for help.

I couldn't agree more... And I would imagine that she could smell when he's lying (being a three-headed dog from hades and his ex). I was originally going to have King call animal control and have Pete locked-up in a cage, but then I remembered that Cerberus can teleport and would probably instantly rush to the scene upon sensing Pete's return.

Anyway, thanks for waiting...

Alternate Text: I realized after drawing this that the shadowy figure behind Pete kind of looks like the black suit spiderman. Oh well, battle of the Pete's, I suppose.

1) Pete is lying
2) "Mr. Robinson"? *KWANG*
3) Back into detention
4) I would add that, in support of point 1: How could a supposedly extra powerful paranoid chimera NOT to keep track of Pete? i mean, as if they'd let the 'backstabber' free to roam on earth and talk to anyone without Homer knowing? Nah!

well, this is obviously a trap of some sort. But he's just a pawn, since it was obvious that he wasn't too fond of homer anymore back when they were talking.
yes, he's a jerk, but Homer's an insane jerk. Whatever their planning, Pete is probably only going along with it so they didn't go after Dragon.
he'll of course still accept the benefit they promised him.

But you needn't worry, cause (spoiler alert) things will happen for reasons... Pete is not getting off so easily... Ever read The Most Dangerous Game? Instead of an island it's the world, instead of a man being hunted it's a fallen demi-god, and instead of a crazy aristocrat it's Homer's avatar (who he will activate in three days... A resident in Babylon Gardens who is a descendant of someone Homer helped/championed long ago). But is this just the tip of the iceberg? Yes... that is the plan... But seriously, what did Pete ever do to deserve such animosity?... (*bursts-out laughing*)
Based on the spoiler there, I'd say Pete is telling the truth. I mean seriously, he's a jerk, but he was done with the game and King until Homer pulled him out of his mortal form and brought him back here. What's he got to gain by just going back to torment King? :?

Pete has been outwitted and defeated by King. King humiliated him. Basically, that same mortal who Pete had chosen as puppet bit him back and hard. A MASSIVE jerk such as Pete would even side with Homer and make sure that Dragon stood out of the way in order to inflict revenge against King.

I think that Pete could be lying, but why would he? I don't think that he would want to lie in this situation, but it is definitely a possibility. I guess we have to wait and see.

Lets start speculating on the avatar. I don't think its King, Bailey or Fox. Maybe Grape since once upon a time Pete wanted her for an avatar.

Yeah Valerio, Pete deserves another shovel bump just to have called King in that way. :P Apparently Pete is really lying, or else, he's insinuating that about Homer. This avatar Pete is talking about should be Heidi, because of the box she indispensably got, where Homer was prisoner. Maybe Homer thought long time before to use she as his avatar, one day... Also, the transformation that Homer did to Holly should get an explaining, it seems part of his plans...
Just waiting now, it's not necessary continue to try to guess. ;)

Thank you all for viewing thus far. I promise that all shall be revealed in time. However, there are a few more things I have to do over the next couple of weeks, such that things will probably continue to develop slowly... In the meantime, here are a couple of deleted scenes that I've been hanging on to. The second of which I am tempted to actually color/include some time... because nothing beats a good old-fashioned pie fight escalating from one simple misunderstanding (nyuk nyuk nyuk).

Hey, why not?...
Kevin: "Stop, or you're all under-!" *Splat*

I decided to add this little non-sequitur of a strip after all. Don't worry, I'll get back on track soon with the main story.

Alternate Text: Fox: "Is it because you thought you were suppose to 'pound' it or that you thought it came from the dog pound and might be poison?" Heidi: "Neither; it's because I'm on a diet and need to get rid of a few pounds."

Very nice and funny. :D Was really Fox the receiver of the blind date? It was really blind... :shock: No, Fox, don't stay with Heidi, she's worse than Sasha, and now you can see it by yourself... :P Great expression for Kevin, he can't escape from flying incoming cakes. :P And, where there are cakes, the other Daryl isn't missed. :lol:
This strip could be collocated between the 21st and the 22nd because of the ambient in the first panel, and Heidi still has a broom with her (is she attempting to imitate Grape? :P).

Yeah, I'm not sure what King ("the corgi-guy") was thinking by arranging this. I guess he was just desperate to help Fox find someone (anyone)... Fox, ready the super-soaker; there's a king that needs dethroning.


Anyway, this next one seemed like a good idea a couple of months ago (one of those things that sounds cooler in your head). As always, I'm open to suggestions, like what would King ask of Pete to prove himself truthful. Regardless of what Cerberus said, I imagine that King would struggle to trust anything Pete says and be unwilling to help.

Wait a second, if all Pete had done would be reversed, does that mean King goes back to being Joel?

Yeah, as I said, it sounded cooler in my head a while back but now seems like the worse plot device ever. Granted, it would give King a strong reason to help his former tormentor, but now I think that the idea of having three more cosmic jerks in place of one is more than enough incentive. I may just change that whole bit... Oh well, best laid plans I guess.

Anyway, here's the next part...

All in due time... But yeah, that is kind of my art style sneaking-in. It's a bit anime-like. Though, to me, Pete looked pretty muscular in his large form; a glistening blue hunk. I guess you can say his appearance here is stuck between that and his casual form.

I thank you all for your support and input thus far. This is my first (and hopefully not last) fanfic and I've been enjoying myself (at your expense... Don't quit your day job bats :lol: ). Seriously, this is a fun little hobby that I'm hoping to get better at. Now I'll have a week to enjoy it even more :) .

Anyways, here's another strip. Don't worry, it's an important little detour in the grand scheme of things and I'll get back to what King has in store for his former tormentor. I'll try to organize these into chapters in time, since this is becoming a saga even longer than I initially anticipated.

Alternate Text: Wow, Heidi really has a balanced personality.

What I have in store for Pete is not as harsh, but amusing nonetheless. Here's a little preview that I will try to color/update in a week. My scanner at home is old and currently has some color/contrast issues...

I felt that this needed to be done, because I can just picture Peter Griffin from Family Guy seeing Pete walk down the street and mistaking him for his arch nemesis: the giant chicken.

Oh, and I forgot the alternate text: It's electric! Boogie woogie woogie!

Sorry to keep those reading this series waiting. (I know I sound like a broken record, but) I sincerely thank you all for your encouragement, patience, and kind/critical feedback. I'll try to have the last entry fully-colored and posted sometime next week.
In addition to work and school starting again, I'm now faced with a number of personal problems. Things have taken a bit of a turn for my family to the point that I may not have any more free time. It's gotten to the point where it has negatively affected both my regular work and my art (however sub-mediocre the latter might have been a priori). I already have the story more or less figured-out, to the point that I'm tempted just to post it in written form with some storyboard sketches (barring any objections).
Anyway, to at least show that I'm faithful, here's one more entry that I will also attempt to finish coloring soon. The 2nd/3rd panels are colored because I was originally going to have them in "Guess Star," which I made when I had a scanner with better color, but cut/pasted them over to this one... My only excuse for Antonio having to ring the doorbell is that Mark forgot to give him a key to the house.

I finally colored and re-posted one of the last strips; the one where Pete is dressed-up like a giant chicken... I'll try and get the other one finished soon (Not sure when, but soon). I'm starting to lean more toward just placing everything in written form along side a few pictures; with my schedule as is for the next 4-5 years, I probably won't get to the ending until I'm 110 years-old... Okay, I exaggerate, but just sayin'.
