You see? At least Pete has been kind enough to decide wait a year until King makes a decision.

So that means the cosmic game will be lengthened at least one more year.

Now we shall wait the boring happy ending of the arc that everyone was expecting.

Really I have to ask what exactly do you like about Pete? In what way is he even remotely sympathetic? And really this is something for anyone who genuinely likes the Nerds do you just like to hate them or do you genuinely like who they are?

Because to me he, especially among the Nerds, has no real redeeming qualities, and really the Nerds in general don't really have any in the first place. They are just some loser nerds with superpowers taking a game of basically D&D far more seriously then it should be taken and ruining peoples lives in the process.

Oh come on, he´s a great character and he´s a great antagonist in this cosmic arc (That doesn´t mean he´s the bad guy). Besides, without him the whole comic wouldn´t be the same.

Meh, don't take me wrong, I enjoy the story, but lately I been losing interest in King's arcs after see so many whining of the forumites. Last time I've truly enjoyed King was "Show Business" arc, so has been a while.
You know, this forum is getting similar to Bleach's forums day by day (and that scares me :shock: ).

King, you now have a year to figure out how to explain this so you better start thinking about how you're going to tell Bailey, and you really don't want to be indecisive regarding this. Though now I wonder how the wedding will be now that King is in this state. I can imagine he'll be really preoccupied.

Be happy and wed? Be single and.., probably in Jail if returned to Human form?

Choices Choices Choices

King I see him reaching out... "HELP! I need somebody... HELP! Not just anybody.... HELP!!!" Oh GOD does he need it now.

(psst! HOPE he decides to stay as a Corgie -- he'll be far happier)

I understand if the Nerds are the type of characters you love to hate; however what I don't get is anyone that genuinely likes them, like Diss seems to with Pete. There isn't anything (to me anyway) to sympathize with or like when it comes to Pete or Dragon.

ok, the arc (and the current year9 still got to end so no, nothing has been defined yet in terms of decisions. For what we know, King could decide once and for all now... But if not, may I speak frankly?, this 'I don't know what I really want to be' trick is becoming stale. The only thing that could really give the final decision a genuine pathos would be when bailey gets pregnant -not to be gross, guys, but I hardly doubt this relationship is based on a platonic base!

Well, I find it good that heaven is not populated by monodimensional happy'n'smiling beings...but Pete seems to belong to the ranks of, well, not-nice places.
And again, Dragon is pulling her rank to get Peanut, which in her own makes her no better.

Well, you could say the same of Bino and he has his own fandom, so...
It's a matter of favoritism, nothing else. In my case, it's probably that I be the only one who have Fox as his least favorite character when he doesn't have any feature to be considered hateful.

I don't think that Pete or Dragon are monsters or evil really. I just think they are really selfish ******** that garner little to no sympathy from me. Believe me I like it that Heaven isn't super perfect land either.

Post subject:  Re: 2013/05/24 - Woe Woe Woe

I must admit, this took an entirely different turn than I expected. Pete came, stated a fact with a minimum of gloating, and made no demands of King before he left. He's getting subtle. If we believe Pete, he will forfeit after a year even if, somehow, he gets King to join him. I suspect this can only mean one of two things: Either Pete is bluffing, or he plans to win with King as his avatar within the year (offering King the chance to remain a dog in exchange).

I actually am starting to like Pete more because he's basically one of the many superpowers in the comic. At first, it wasn't so interesting until more players like Pete started showing up. Pete's redeeming quality is that he is different than the others, actually. He's not as nice as Dragon, he's not as fair as GK, and he's certainly the kind of guy that I find that plays to his own benefits and amusement, but at the same time it's because this whole thing is treated like a game to them. Pete also shows that he does have a soft side, but it's mostly a subtle one because, let's face it ~ He wants things done his way.

I oughta point out that Pete is certainly a likable character these days. Granted though, it's not something I would say you wanna see him do everyday, but when he does something, you know it's meant to be important, and that can be done smoothly depending on the pace of the comic. (And personally, the pace is there.)

Post subject:  Re: 2013/05/24 - Woe Woe Woe

Pete is usually shown in a darker or devious light. And I kinda understand that Pete more or less has been a bit harsh on King when he turned into a corgi. But would it really be that bad for King if he did accept being Pete's avatar?

Author:  Cerberusx [ Fri May 24, 2013 1:30 am ]
Post subject:  Re: 2013/05/24 - Woe Woe Woe

I'm confused. What will Pete do if King does go to him? To me it sounds like King will lose no matter what...also I think King might cancel the wedding now. Simply because of what Pete has said. After all there's no guarantee that Pete ever keep is end of the bargain if King wants to stay as a dog.

Pete's slowly becoming one of my favourite characters. He quotes song lyrics. x3

I was expecting Pete to do something more. I guess it'll be interesting to see what happens now!

On another note, I now have Mrs Robinson stuck in my head. xD

Post subject:  Re: 2013/05/24 - Woe Woe Woe

To me for a character like Pete to be likeable (which they can be) they either need to have a very charismatic personality which IMO Pete doesn't have or they have to have a very good reason to do the things they do. Which neither Pete nor Dragon have, because their reasoning boils down to an incredibly childish "I want to win this game." Which is just not in any way a good or even interesting reason, I'm sorry Rick but its just not. I liked the Nerds storyline back when I though there might be a good reason for all of this but the fact is there isn't.

As a character, I like him. He makes an impact and has shown enough facets to give him some depth. I might cheer for Kings side, but to me Pete is like a player on the opposing side who makes a nice move and scores on your team. I can't help but raise an eyebrow, admire it and go, "Yikes, look what that guy just did."
