Ha. Ha. Ha. Can you tell how un-enthusiastic I am? By the way, I realize that if I press the "quote" button I can see the links to them. I meant is there a place where they're all on a gallery, like on a Deviant Art profile or something?

I think the only reason they're thinking about using a wedding dress is because King used to be human. Old habits die hard.

Back to topic, the opening panel says that the Milton ferrets are the legal owners of the Wolves and King. But this strip says otherwise:

Wow, I wasn't expecting the new arc to come that fast, it seems Rick wants to get rid of the cosmic stuff as soon as possible :lol:

At least I can say it gonna be interesting to see for the first time in the comic a fully dressed pet.
Oh wait, that already happened :lol:

My guesses of this arc:
-Since Pete isn't allowed to leave the temple until he get a full avatar, he can't intervene directly with King. However, Pete still has a card up his sleeve: Keene. I think Pete was expecting the wedding since King still have his human manners. The role of Keene in all of this is simple. He's going to change the minister's speech so when King say "I do" would be the same to accept to be Pete's avatar.
-Tarot/Dragon, Bino and Duchess will not be invited to the wedding :o

Let me think... Since the late Mr. Milton left his estate to his ferrets, that means that they can own property. That sets a precedent that they can own things, which means they can own pets as well. Am I on the right track?

@Gren: I can agree with you that Keene (under the influence of Pete) could do that. (maybe figuring out how to eat use the mana in the process. However, King seems to be the suspicious type (and for good reason) so I doubt that he'll agree to anything without reading the fine print. (Unless Bailey tells him not to... what could possibly go wr*brick'd*)

As far as Bino/Duchess, I can understand that, possibly... But with Keene organizing everything (you don't honestly think he's not going to take control, do you?) the ceremony will probably end up being a massive circus, with local national news reporters there and everything. (The Miltons never do anything small.)

As much as he doesn't care for them, my guess is that King will allow Tarot and Sabrina to be there as onlookers.

Now for the big questions: We all can probably easily know Fox will be the Best man dog. But who will be the Maid of Honor? Sasha, Daisy, or a new character?

I like what you did there Argent! let me see what I can scrape together.

This probably goes without saying, but i'm pretty sure Bailey and King's wedding would make a prime opportunity for Pete to screw things up!
Y'all remember Pete's foreboding strip:

wait wait wait... The watch thing was a last ditch effort by Pete... Bailey retrieving the watch was a big factor in King getting together with her... Pete laughed maniacally after stating he's well aware of King's girlfriend, they're getting married now in a wedding planned by Pete's minion...

holy crap, this is all going exactly according to Pete's plan, isn't it?

and all we know about why Bailey's in BG is cause the farm was sold. Keene bought it, didn't he. Pete, you evil evil genius. always thinking, what, 6 steps ahead?

Excuse me sir, but aren't you supposed to be a mod? :roll:

And nice theory. Another possibility could be that she isn't the real Bailey, she's an actor hired by Keene to take Bailey's place and Pete is sealed in her body somehow, meanwhile the real Bailey is in Kansas and the farm was never sold (though that would be too silly and complicated, and a bit similar of something happened in Stu's fancomics).

Same here, but the reason is because I can't just forget the fact that King is a human, while Bailey is a dog. Yeah, my only complaint, but to me a rather big one.

Right, because letting go of your original species, even when you have been physically turned into another, is SUCH a quick and easy choice! But I'm sure you know that from experience, don't you, Foxy?

I suspect that species dysphoria is much more of a thing in the HP! universe than here. They probably have people trained to deal with it and everything.

Hey, you remember how Keene kinda is the minion of Pete now ? King-life-ruining Pete ? And who may or may not decide to use Keene to ruin that marriage just to mess with King's head ?

Well, glad Keene is on board. This will be the social event of the season! I wonder if Keene will invite any of Joel's family, if he has any.... I mean, he is Pete's minion, he probably knows...

Well, that is good! Bailey is figuring things out at least!

Why am I getting the feeling that this WON'T be the resolution in the making? :roll:

I have a funny feeling that he is, which is depressing; but, at the same time, I'm getting a feeling that Pete probably won't. Unless he himself is unexperienced with this kind of thing, which I'm guessing is probably true considering how his relationship with Cerberus went, he might know how hectic just planning a wedding is and will just sit back and watch the fireworks. At least that's what I'm thinking.

I think that the arc is going to end with Bailey breaking off her engagement with King and King becoming Pete's avatar.
