Whelp I think Cerberus is going to have to get even more involved now. I wonder if she will recruit the others to help her or even just send them in themselves. I doubt she will want to leave two young kids down there with a demon on the loose.

Anything I could say is already written all over Cerberus' face.

I love this look for Cerebus. I'm not sure we have ever seen her stunned like this before. Its about time. 8-)

When you think about everything
you sometimes can’t see it all.
The look on Cerbs’ faces tells it;
they’d forgotten those two were small.
A trio that’s been made thunder-struck,
a duo that’s left in danger;
How can they keep that pair safe,
leave them there for a stranger?
It looks like Tarot’s getting cold,
even as her point heats the room.
Cerb needs to warn Great Kit of this…

It can be easy to overlook something when your doing a rush plan. But is 3 times as bad when you got 3 heads and all of them forget it. That's triple the problem or something ^^;

I can hear a record scratch sfx with the one head xD Also, since they mention magic(k) bound mortals, does that mean Lois and Marion are also still stuck there, along with Draig and Craig?

Nope. Marion's a mortal soul and is in heaven. Remember his phone call?

This seems to imply that there is a magically bound mortal that Cerberus knows about, or we are just seeing the expedited conversation to save time, but the only character I can think of that might be affected is the old man who speaks in limericks.

And has been established that Tarot know Pete and Dragon were in Babylon Garden. Did she just take an educated guess or did she do some off-screen Trace Route Demigod on her crystal tablet?

I'd say guess but King might have told her that Kitsune was hanging around with a vixen who had two Cubs...

This is the time when such characters that were merely a joke can actually come back with bigger plot. But it may always be someone else. Or even nobody in particular.

I guess she just knew that all along. She may lost her powers etc, but I think she can feel something anyway.
Or maybe she didn't know who were them? I assumed she did. But if she met them, she had to understood their gibberish, that Kix thinks it's only imagination of the kids. Tarot would get what are they talking about in an instant.
Also... if Grape and Peanut was doing more than just one time of baby sitting, she could have been there too one or few times. Or... wasn't she actually there when they did that Imaginate! thing with kids?

I actually wonder what can possibly happen. Okay, they are mortal and they can e.g. die. But if they die, they just became immortal again, won't they? Or may they be somehow demonically used, possessed or something? Obviously as mortals they are in danger, but they are mortals as long as they are living. They could possibly by forced to do something like Breel and Keene were. But I doubt that would be the case anyway. Especially that Eudoant want to do some business HERE, not in Heck. But still i cant see the danger they are in.

Tarot was also at the hot spring the whole time they were there as well. Although they weren't shown on panel together it's likely they had to have crossed paths at least a few times. So she could have figured it out that way, or Kitsune might have told her for some reason while they were there as well.

It's also possible that she doesn't know who they are but knows they are in Babylon Gardens because it's possible they might be bound to the temple in some way.

Tarot is right, Craig and Draig were left on earth... Since they're cursed with the magic(k), bring all the living beings of that area on Heaven didn't work on them... :? Tarot reminded you of that, and you neither wanted her into these matters, Cerberus... :roll: So, the immune mortals are safe on Heaven, and Great Kitsune did a good job to do in this way. If mortals can help celestials to spot the demons on earth, maybe this thing can work also on Craig and Draig, who have been left on that area of the earth. ;) Eheh, the title text is so right, it means that celestials aren't immune to mistakes (once again)! :D :P

I really do believe this is gonna tie GK's paws and result in him breaking the deal between him and the Celestial Fox Cubs. I can't see this going down any other way.

However you slice it, Craig and Draig are in peril of some sort. Their "mortalization" has put them in a sort of cosmic ambiguity and, perhaps, uncharted spiritual territory. Assuming death releases them from mortality, that does not necessarily mean they return automatically to demi-god state. They might just go into the afterlife as any other mortal might. We could also assume, though, that Bahamut or GK have somehow restored them or "fixed" this off-stage...but that has yet to be seen.

Would we also see a reversal of all those COIN transformations as part of a mass reset on the world before Pete and Dragon began their gaming escapade? That's another ponderment.

It's beginning to look like, after GK taught Tarot a lesson back in the Temple, our Pomeranian might just be about to take ol'Nine Tales to school.

As a person trained in bureaucracy, yes it really is. Also love that the one who is usually the kind and sorta bubbly one is the one with the "I'm trying very hard not to curse" face.

Then you probably have heard this one, Jestor - "How is a bureaucrat like an octopus? - When threatened, they both disappear in thick clouds of ink." ;)

It seems like Tarot is going to gather up some friends and be sent to Earth for Operation Save the Kit Kats, and that lead me down a rabbit hole of thought about angels and demons and how we have seen they work and how they usually work. And I have came to a question that I don't have a good answer for: What happens if some recites Zach's journal to a demon.

I have a feeling that due to this little oversight and the fact that Kitsune wasn’t paying attention all too much that Kitsune might also end up being cursed to live out a mortal life but as Kix’s ACTUAL mate. xP

The problem with that is that punishments aren't supposed to be fun and him being cursed to stay in that form would guarantee that he would hang around Joey, Lester and Dallas and spend all of that time or most of it involved in whatever they would do. So if he were to get punished I believe that it would have to be in a form that they wouldn't associate with and have to deal with Pete and Dragon all the time who are smug that he is getting a taste of what they had been dealing with.

Well, it's not like they're cursed for long
But their lack of power's a siren's song
For ne'er-do-wells to come and wreck
The world, well, heck.

Well, Pete and Dragon it did affect
And Cerb knows that means they're all hecked
And Tarot means to get that point through quick,
ALL mortals are affected by magic(k).
You're a wonderful person! You can do this! Yes, you, person reading this!
