    Well the unicorn is a pretty standard English heraldic symbol, plus Albia's entire deal is like. The Faerie Queen, and various other retainers look like pixies and whatnot so. Albia is very on-brand with her constructs?

    To quote Carson von Mekkhan, it doesn't even rate.

    We have Ottilia (Castle Heterodyne), Prende (Paris), Moxana and Tinka (probably/hopefully Castle Wulfenbach, although Tinka is in pieces) accounted for. I think I've seen it mentioned somewhere that Mawu and Liza are in a Parisian museum but that might be fanon.
    Artimo, Orotine, and Contasia are unaccounted for at the moment.

    But I've got the feeling that Albia has at least one of them, because it would actually be something that could keep Agatha there after she's been reminded that Mechanicsburg needs her and that der Kestle has more labs.

    And then a Muse heist happens, idk. Tarvek would be so up for it.

    it makes so much sense! at least tarvek suspects it. given he's well, tarvek, i'm inclined to take that as confirmation.

    to be fair, he's been suspecting this since the castle arc.

    I think Tarvek just saw his life flash before his eyes, too, and realized that if Higgs weren't pleased, he'd be really dead really quick and it'd look utterly plausible. And that Higgs is also going to be watching him (probably already has been!) and isn't about to brook disobedience against the Lady Heterodyne any more than any of the other Jaegers would.

    Except that Higgs is a general, and is going to be much harder to fool.

    I'm pleased but suspicious of people not suspecting Agatha in this place.

    Well, to be fair, the immediate assumption from everyone prior to Wooster walking in was "of course the Lady Heterodyne killed Bunstable - but why and how?". Even Dimo assumed Agatha had done it! Wooster probably only doesn't suspect it was her because he's done enough research on her to realize that if she's going around doing murders on purpose, she's going to have some damn good reasons for it - even when she's been at her most madgirl, she's usually not going for lethal options. Just stuff that's odd, or embarrassingly awkward for the people subjected to it.

    There's a difference between "I quite deliberately set him on fire" and "I didn't realize explaining this formula to him would cause him to spontaneously combust if he understood the implications, because why would understanding the fourth dimension do that to someone?" after all! And Wooster's probably already aware that Bunstable was working with Agatha because no one else was trustworthy - and she was working happily with him right up until he died.

    We have a detailed map of GG!Transylvania now!

    My theories of Sibiu = Beetleburg and Brassov = Balan's Gap have been disproven, but Sighisoara = Mechanicsburg is close enough for me to call grabs. -happy dance-

    Also, according to Cheyenne himself (it was posted on a gg discord) the original Wulfenbach is located where IRL is the town Cluj, or, as the Saxons called it, Klausenburg.

    So, it's looking like the Boilerghast is very real (or at least someone's doing all this) and is...handing out items? Specific items. Items that the people receiving them want and, quite possibly, need. (Agatha got that book on "how to summon entities from other dimensions", after all, which looks like it's a lead on how to resolve the looming threat to Mechanicsburg. And other people have gotten books or items they wanted from Tobber, but that he wouldn't give them.)

    Is the Boilerghast just settling up Tobber's estate?

    Looks like there've been more murders, though, which is...unfortunate.

    I'm sorry, breaking through again? That does explain how she seems to be on a whole another level. I am dying to know all the details about this.

    Okay I just got caught up on the comic and someone on tumblr months and months ago put out a request for someone in the fandom to write weird xenoporn because this comic is the perfect fodder but the fandom writes none of that and i volunteered but i cant remember enough about the post to bother to try to find it so any requests for characters to write weird porn about?
    ALSO! All the heavy hints that have been dropped in the past year have been giving me life!
    My biggest fear is that GG is gonna end with Agatha choosing one between gil and tarvek and not the throuple that we've been teased with and if that happens i will lie dramatically on a large rock and sob
    Also- the comfort and care that gil and tarvek demonstrate for each other? IM LIVING! They snark and they bicker but ultimately they are incredibly comfortable with each other and feel safe around each other and take care of each other and it makes me have tender emotions and delicate hopes. THe way the care for agatha is also very similar! Gil saying that he realizes he's a danger to agatha the way he is now but he can rest easy knowing tarvek is with her? tarvek saying he would do anything to keep agatha safe? PEAK ROMANCE!!!
    ALSO god i love jaegers so much! so so so much! they are so so dumb but have weird depths and also voles whole "it felt like I was fighting for hundreds of years." and "I did horrible things" "So did we all kid. then we grew up" raw ass dialogue!!! I love how they're changing with the heterodynes and how they care about agatha so much and just... Everytime I see jaegers my heart goes bdmpbmp and I melt because just,,, I love these monsters with their sharp teeth and their weird morals and unwavering loyalty and cheer
    The foreshadowed zeetha/bang fight? I'm scared lads! Fuckin Terrified!!
    ALso is violetta actually dead? she can't be? shes too sneaky and there wasn't enough dramatic tension? And I am not lying to myself!

    Huh. And we get more implication of time travel, because there's no way that Lucrezia should be able to have attacked the Queens centuries before she was born.

    Mind you, that doesn't look much like Lucrezia...or at least, not the Lucrezia that anyone we've seen knows, anyways. That's - I want to say that it's a much older Lucrezia. One who might not have aged very well? There's definitely something wrong with one of her eyes - replaced with sparkwork, possibly - and. Hm. The geisterdamen said that their Lady came in many guises, but most often in the one that looked and ID'd as Lucrezia.
    What if one of the Queens fucked something up, and went mad as a result? Or lost her body, and grabbed Lucrezia's when it became available? And was so very, very angry at her sister-queens, that they never even noticed her distress or her plight and did nothing to help her...

    Just a theory of course.

    And Albia said earlier that she had had reason, before, to regret sharing the deeper secrets of how the mirrors work. Who has she shared that knowledge with, before now?

    So, time travel confirmed and we've got a timeline for when the mirrors went down: five thousand years ago. And Albia knows that Lucrezia is the Other (although I don't recall when she found that out - did Agatha tell her?) and describes Lucrezia-as-she-was as "interestingly bent" - no judgement, I'm guessing, since Albia's done just as bad, if not worse, and at least Lucrezia wasn't being vile for the sake of vileness. Lucrezia probably isn't the one who got told the deeper mysteries, though.

    Nice to have confirmation, I guess, that Lucrezia-as-The-Other is completely cracked. I mean, we'd guessed, but that's not the same as knowing for sure. It still leaves the question of how she broke, though, since Albia says she's never seen anyone broken like that before or since.
