    Hm. If I'm remembering right - the Loremistress said that someone stole Agatha from them. Implied that she had no idea what the hell happened or how, just one day, Agatha was gone. Lu was also heavily pregnant when she turned up to the Geister retreat, and I think the Loremistress implied that Lu stayed for some time after Agatha was born in order to recover and regain her strength before going back out to deal with whatever had sent her fleeing before. And when she came back, Agatha was gone.

    So the "Lu dropped Agatha off and paid minimal attention and buggered off somewhere far away" theory does have a solid basis for it, at least. But you're right that there's holes and we don't have anywhere near enough info from anyone; if I'm remembering right, Punch and Judy said that Barry turned up with Agatha one day, and that she looked about three or four at the time. He stuck around till she was eight, heard her humming and saw her making things, and made the locket and put it on her, and then left shortly afterwards - and didn't come back very often or do great about staying in touch.

    I feel like it's probably not connected to Lu's true body. I vaguely recall mention of the signal itself being older than Lu and wildly different from anything she'd ever touched - that she was just hijacking something someone else had set up.

    If I'm remembering right, it got disassembled and evacuated with the Geisterdamen; I mostly suspect that because I vaguely recall a lot of speculation in the Agatha's Minions LJ community about whether the Geisters could be creating other Lu copies now that they were in hiding, back when that first happened.

    On more current topics - why does the Master have child-snaffling wagons?!? I mean - I know logically the 'why'; they're good for collecting truants and juvenile delinquents. But on the other hand: why does the Master have child-snaffling wagons that try to tempt kiddies with rice pudding and have the capacity to bathe the kids? Why this? Why do they look like ominous clowns?

    I don't know why we've got a filler page here but the book titles are hilarious.

    He Said; She Said; Odds; Ends; This; That; Fate; Stories For Children; Stories For Adults; Stories For Childlike Adults
    Facts; Fables; Cautionary Tales; Stuff I told My Brother; Truth; Lies; Damned Lies; Politics; Different Truth; Subjective Truth
    I Told You; Sez You; Sez Me; I Knew That; Mundane Revelations; Myopic Revelations; Mystic Revelations; Idol Gossip; Religious Revelations for Fun And Prophets; Second Thoughts; Yeah.; Yeah?
    Zilch; So What Do I Know?; How About That?; Really?; But I Have Proof; That's A Good Point; Wait A Minute; No, I'm Pretty Sure; Maybe; The Irrefutable Nature of Truth
    Etc.; Yack Yack; Me; And Who is 'They' Anyway?; They Said; Whispers; Fortune Cookies; The Writing On The Wall; Pillow Talk; Over the Fence; Stories Told Around the Well; Barracks Ballads; Tavern Stories; So What Do You Know
    Masat: Stories (with/were/once?) Other Lies; How They Met by (PF)oglio

    Of particular entertainment: shelf 4 and the ends of 3 and 5 ("So What Do You Know" to "Second Thoughts") reading as an argument when looked at right to left, "Stuff I Told My Brother" being on the same shelf as all the truth and lie-focused books; "Stories for Childlike Adults"

    I wonder if it's a wedding anniversary page, considering 'How They Met'.

    I can see this being very useful for making Gkikas barlady updo, though I think I´d use something to pad the middle so I´d need less hair and have a lighter result.

    Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? In Paris, apparently.

    SANS! Also I think those people behind Jenka are dressed as Jägers, and they amuse me immensely.

    My guess is that they are REAL Jaegers who are absolutely hype to be there. However everyone thinks they are fake jaegers. Possibly they are real jaegers wearing jaeger costumes.

    also, that pink-dress girl in panel 1 knows what she is about.

    Jägers in jäger costumes I could imagine, the faces look too stiff and big to be real jägers.

    Bets on "her" being Lunevka?

    I mean, the other alternative I can think of is that it's either Tinka or Moxanna or some shit like that. The silhouette is reading as Clanky to me. But the most likely person to show up right here and right now and be heralded with excitement feels like "Princess Anevka" (that is, Lucrezia-in-Anevka).
    I'm not sure that Lunevka got out of Mechanicsburg before it got sealed off, though, so there's that as a concern...

    ...it's like... this is too obviously Lucrezia that I'm thinking... it can't possibly be her? What is going on

    Edit: omfg. Calling it now, it's fucking Zola

    Shit, I forgot it might be Zola. You're right, it's probably frigging Zola.

    (The one bright point: no one's likely to buy that she's the Heterodyne, at this point? I assume? Agatha's claim is too heavily staked.)

    Yeah, she more and more sounds like Zola, especially with the way Grandma Terebithia handles her.
    (With Terebithia hating Lucrezia but stealing her tech via Milvistle, I wonder if the Queen of Dawn ploy isn't specifically designed to be Anti-Lucrezia, even if she's using the same methods)

    On that note, with every panel she's in, I love Grandma Terebithia more.

    I am feeling vicarious thrills at seeing probably-Zola's reaction to Agatha's appearance.
