I'm kind of sensing that Sabrina doesn't know that the Cosmic Nerds have ABSOLUTE JERKS!!! Also well said King, way to get the point across.
Also, does anyone else think that in panel 3 King looks like he's sitting in a 6 foot hole? :roll:

Poor king, always getting over spoken by Tarot, when all he wants is to be his corgi self with his wife Bailey...


...and have stubby-legged husky puppies XD




and Yes ay'all, I'm back :D

Man, this one has all the feels...

Still, it's also a bit more evidence to a theory of mine. I had been waiting and seeing if my worst fear was going to come true or not...and I hope with everything in my heart that it isn't true.

I suspect the watch might have some time control powers...and it might reset everything to as it was. The only reason for this little scene is for King to speak to Bailey before he "undoes everything," thus sacrificing himself.

That said, while it isn't worth tearing each other apart for such wonderful things in life, isn't it worth FIGHTING for those things? If you ask me, I'd advise this group to take the fight to the cosmic nerds, and to find a way to make their OWN destiny.

I still have a mostly optimistic look on this whole situation, but I guess a smidge of fear has snuck in. I hope for the best...King and Bailey to remain a couple, Sabrina finding some peace in the world and her way back into Fido's arms, Fox getting himself a girlfriend (Sorry Sasha, you're not good enough for him), Tarot...well, she's already got Peanut, so whatever else she wants, and for a certain cobalt-feathered, cruel canary to get what's coming to him.

Can't wait to see how this arc goes. *eagerly watches*

The way I'm seeing it, Pete and Dragon don't care if Sabrina, Tarot, Bailey or King are hurt, they just want to prove which one has the bigger ego and which one is better. King, on the other hand (And based on a line from the marriage arc), is literally moving heaven just to get Bailey back to him cause that is all he wants right now and it's the first time, since he became a corgi, that he's been happy and he doesn't want to lose that. He and Bailey are meant for each other and Pete knows that, but he doesn't care. All he wants to do is to prove he's better then Dragon and will put both their lives in danger just to prove that point. It reminds me too much of what I've witness with a couple members of my family (who are no longer part of it).

As for Tarot...she REALLY needs to start taking the situation more serious then shes taking it now.

I doubt they got a choice, Remember the contract thing? (https://www.housepetscomic.com/2014/04/ ... ligations/) It was sutle way of representing that they have no choice but to do as they say, so they can't fight against them. Their wills are bound except for King and Fox and the rest that are not followers and/or avatars.

You know thinking about Tarots reaction to Sabrina (and a few other things shes done in the comic) I wonder if she never really considered that anything the Nerds could do would be upsetting/seen as wrong to anyone else. I just kind of get that feeling from these last two strips.

It would also be a pay off to the "No weird time junk" rule that Kitsune mentioned a while back.

And a sad one if it were to come to pass. :( Everything that has happened since King entered the scene would be moot and history would be rewritten. Still, it'd be a creative way to prevent the cast from aging. :P

The power of freedom, Heaven sent,
the choice to create or to destroy.
The abilities given to their heroes
the heroes created as a gods toy.
Bailey fights her cause for love,
fighting for hope in all its' station.
Hers is the knowledge, from above,
for King she fights for creation.
Sabrina would make the world better -
her new world beginning construction -
but, to bring the world of light and hope,
she's become the avatar of destruction.
Things laid clear, they cannot give up,
they cannot relinquish the power.

End doesn't necessarily mean win... but that's probably just me playing with semantics.

I just thought of something funny. Imagine if King found a way to get them all to win. meaning all them mortals with their rewards, and leaving the cosmic nerd to continue fighting but with out them in the line of fire.

Who knows. At any rate i think Tarot has her own motives for wantig the rules to be upheld and stuff.

Who knows though what the rewards are or what kings plan is.

Sadly, not everything can be given without strings. We all want it, getting what is good and what we want, but the fact of the matter is that many things we have to really strive for, overcome obstacles, face hardships, and it's not always a smooth or painless path.

So since King's plan to have them all quit failed, what is he gonna do now?
I don't know about you all, but I got a hunch that watch is not only gonna be used to convince Keene to help him.

BTW I know this is a late question, but where did Karishad go?

Wait, is King calling out his wife for signing the contract, 8-) What have I been saying.
Though King still thinks that Dragon is an enemy, so he still needs some work.
And honestly, this seems like a sudden character change for King.

Between that and the missing ring on his finger, that seems like a very real depressing possibility (like taking "the easy way out" in a cosmic game with check points). Though, truth be told, nothing in life that's worth having comes easy. I'd say fight-on and find some way of tricking Pete into a new deal with the help of all of these new toys (and maybe a drink laced with orange soda).

I think the ring missing is just a minor oversight, he was clearly wearing it only two comics ago (Time Out, Take Two). Then again I'm not the artist, so I couldn't say. I'm more interested in how much time that cloaking lantern thingy King used has before they're able to be seen by the Demi-Nerds again.

Nah, could be done without it being the ending. I mean King ain't the main character, so it wouldn't be ending material.

Yeah but compared to all the supporting characters, King is definitely the biggest. To me, King has the most stakes and most character development, more so than Peanut, Grape, Tarot, Sabrina and Max.

To me that ending idea, even if it wouldn't be the end of Housepets, it would be the end of King, and that's a lot to lose for the series as a whole.

I think Rick is kind of worried that HP! is becoming "King and the rest" already, which is why he's bringing this meta-arc to a close.

I don't know if that is part of his reasoning (we know most of it is because hes tired of people hating on the arc and arguing about it) but I do have to say that really it kind of has become that at this point. Its the issue with only having one ongoing storyline for 5 years, more if you want to say it started when Pete first showed up instead of just King.
