The GPF site will undergo routine, scheduled maintenance this Thursday, June 27th, from 10pm to midnight EDT (2am to 4am UTC on Friday the 28th). A two-hour window has been scheduled for this event, but it will hopefully not take that long. During this maintenance, the site will not be available and will appear offline. Due to the timing, there is a chance that Friday's scheduled comic update may be delayed. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.

{{A Tail of Two Species, a Kevin & Kell
GPF Crossover Event}}
{{Nick is a white mouse (or rat, he's not sure), Ki is an orange tabby cat, Fenton is a bat, and Lindesfarne is an English hedgehog.}}

{{First strip, by GPF artist Jeffrey Darlington}}
[[Nick and Fenton play a console game as the TV beeps, bloops, and bops in the background.]]
Fenton: So this new VR system you're building with my equipment... How exactly will that get you home?

Nick: If this is still a simulation, the feedback of the new reality matrix will loop back and cancel out this world, hopefully bringing us back.
Fenton: And if this world _is_ real?

<<TV: Bleep Boop Boink. Game Over.>>

Nick: Um... So Lindesfarne's dad runs an ISP, right?
Fenton: Just so long as you don't take my job, I can set you up...

{{Second strip, by Kevin & Kell artist, Bill Holbrook}}

[[Lindesfarne and Ki talk, as Nick and Fenton continue their game]]
Lindesfarne: A whole world... but only ONE species is intelligent?
Ki: Yeah, dolphins. Just kidding, but sometimes I do think the jury's still out on us humans.

Lindesfarne: ... But being all the same, you're united in brotherhood! It must be a paradise of universal bonding and peace!

[[Ki looks down at the table, as Lindesfarne, still in her hands raised pose of exposition realizes the truth...]]

[[Lindesfarne covers her eyes with one hand.]]
Lindesfarne: So how bad is it?
Ki: At least here you KNOW who your predators are.
