Post Arcs that would never happen, but are fun to think about
I don’t know why, but I had a dumb thought of how the cast wound be like if they were in a death battle like in the hunger games or battle royale, and it got me thinking. Is there an arc idea that be most likely horrible for Rick to attempt but gives you a chuckle thinking about?

Oh my goodness I had an idea like that too! :P
I actually even went far enough to write some stuff about it like who would win and who would kill who and even alternate routes-

Though it was all under the idea of it being a VR game to make it seem less gruesome.

To add a new idea to the thread, for some reason I can't get the idea of a Housepets Musical out of my head. No clue what it'd be about though.

Pretty good chance it would just be the broadway musical "Cats"

Actually, a Housepets musical could work ... You'd have to take several shorter arcs and thread them through a major story line. The Joel-king-pete saga springs to mind as the "tentpole story" but it might be too much, too crowded. There are several love stories that might work as subplots, Fido and Sabrina and/or Zach and Jessica (love triumphs), Peanut-Grape-Max and/or Bino-Sasha-Fox (love lost). Fun to map out anyways...

Is that the yusuke from Persona 4? I suppose the cast getting transported into a video game world is an arc unlikely to happen... though like the musical idea, it’s not one I consider impossible

No clue who Buster is referring to, but it's not Yosuke from p4. His surname is "Hanamura."

Post Re: Arcs that would never happen, but are fun to think about
Back when the comic was a year old and Maxwell got rejected by Grape on that Christmas special, I use to come up with this crazy idea that Maxwell would come up with all of these plans to woo Grape and have the audience ask "Where does he get all of that money?" Some examples include buying a swimming pool or getting on the cover of magazines.

then the answer would be - he's the cat Kingpin of Babylon Garden. Similar to how Ptah turned out.

In fact, thinking about it ~ Ptah pretty much became what I thought Max would be like if he was crooked. x3

Ah, memories ...... Okay, back on track. Bino decides he's gonna impress Duchess by winning a dance contest except he can't seem to get a band together. Then, to top it off, it turns out that X (insert favorite unexpected and long absent character here - Marvin, Terrance, or Griswold, say) emerges as a potential rival.

... you know speaking of hatepets, would hell count as an alternate dimension? If not, it’s been awhile since we’ve seen that happen.

Post Re: Arcs that would never happen, but are fun to think about
I'd say so, Game. I don't think Rick's going to hurry back to Pandemonium for a while, but how about an arc where Eudoant comes to BGardens, maybe looking for the little demon that slipped out on him. In the process, Pete/Craig recognized her and tries to strike a deal to get his old form and powers back. Others who might make a deal with ol'four ears might include Badger/Steward, Thomas Camel, or even "four finger discount" Jack. Even Bino might make a good mark. Or Breel recognizes Eudoant and tries to get a celestial to confront her. Possibilities abound, eh?

Heh, maybe we should setup a spot for hopeful happening, for predicting stuff like that

Isn’t that more as the title said, Wild? I was thinking more like stuff we can talk about that a plot thread has been setup on already or something of that nature.

Why do you still use female pronouns to refer to Eudoant?

No, you summed up Wild Mass Guessing pretty well with your previous post. Yes, if someone wanted to share a truly wild theory with no basis in fact, that would be the thread to go to, but in practice people use it more for how they think/want the comic to go when it's backed by some evidence, but not nearly enough to say in any more respectable topic. If your looking for a place less about predicting what will actually happen and more about what you want to happen, there is the Wish upon a star. thread for that.

As for an arc that would never happen, but is fun for me to think about: one of the animals (pet, zoo, or wild, I don't know) starts developing psychic powers and Tarot gets jealous.

No I don't mean like Imaginate. I mean like a full musical that isn't a re-creation of something that already exists; where everybody gets their own songs and most importantly, Bino gets an awesome villain song where he absolutely kill some to because he's the greatest singer in the neighbourhood. (Or so I like to believe)

And my Housepets musical vision also involves Joey and his nerd group rapping

that's similar to an old fan fic, the only difference is that it was existing songs in original situations. you can find it here

Not sure what the goods on Rufus would do since he's dead. Kind of hard to blackmail a dead Australian shepherd.

True, but Maxwell's still very much with us. Of course, the Barn Cats may not necessarily have known him, but then there's the lingering question of how he came to get dumped by Sabrina. Other than the fact Maxwell can at times be a first-class yutz....

I thought that Dragon was implied to sever Mabrina and then put Fibrina together so Pete could use him for the game?

Though with the way Max sometimes acts and the fact that Grape has a lot more tolerance than Sabrina, I'm sure they would have broken up eventually. Though it is entirely possible Sabrina wouldn't have ended up with Fido.

An arc where Sabrina accidentally casts a love spell on Bino, and he falls for Grape.

Then the tendency for his siblings all falling for animals that aren’t the same species as them would fit with him as well.

I wouldn't mind if Bino ended up falling for another pet who wasn't a cat or dog. So far in terms of interspecies romance, we have a cat/dog, dog/mouse and a rabbit/opossum. Actually when I wasn't shipping Bino with another fan character from my writing partner, I was shipping him with Natalie (Bitalie).

... okay, it would never happen because Rick has setup Duchess as the girlfriend, but can you imagine Bino dating the surprisingly likable cult leader? (Considering how much I hate the cult itself, I find it bizarre how much I enjoy Custom Ink.) I like to imagine Custom picked her name for religious reasons

Post Re: Arcs that would never happen, but are fun to think about
I'm guessing you like Ink because she's such a sweet creature. Her faith in Zachery is really more touching than it is grating (her devotion hasn't turned her into an obnoxious zealot). Her vulnerability when Tum shows up with Animal Control in tow (Fox and Mungo, actually) is genuinely cute. Especially charming is her loyalty and friendship with Jessica, who often makes her the butt of possum scorn and sarcasm, yet Ink is almost relentlessly kind to the cynical marsupial. In a way, Zach and Ink are both foils for Jessica's dark view of life and bristling wariness yet they also bring the out her softer, more compassionate side.

I don’t know if she’s strong enough to carry an arc on her own, but personally, I’d like it. Could also double to maybe develop the cult so it’s less irritating when it comes up
