    Default Girl Genius VII: Get on the Slab, I Want to Get to Work!

    Previously on Girl Genius:

    Gil is finding out that letting his "Elan Vital" drop quickly might be a tad risky to his health. Agatha is going through a bit of a identity crisis. And Higgs... Well, we're not really sure what is up with Higgs tbh.

    But at least the gang is (almost) all back together.

    First woot!!!

    Edit: Alright now someone tell me why no else has suggested that Von Pinn is Otilia? I mean seriously? Am I the only one thinking this? Von Pinn falls down the hole and who comes up but Otilia.

    Gil is awake in the last page, isn't he?

    Isn't that a bit odd? I mean, if he's awake (and alive), the procedure is over, right? He couldn't have been infected with Resplendent Immolation anyway. There's no need to kill him or anything; he was just mirroring Tarvek's symptoms.

    He could have been infected by Agatha who got infected by kissing Tarvek BEFORE she kissed Gil.

    Also, I support this thread. It is made of win and awesome.

    Not counting people who are dead (Lars), put on a ferry to England (Master Payne's Circus of Adventures!), or temporary sidekicks with no reason to stick around (the Sturmhalten Sewer Rat), all I can see on the top of my head are the Wild Jäger, Wooster, and Punch & Judy.

    Depending on your defination of protagonist: Othar, Klaus, maybe Wooster (where IS he, anyway?)

    Pinky's not there, but she's more an antagonist at this point.

    Von Pinn's not there, either, but her exact role in the story is unclear.

    All except Wooster would most likely be classified as antagonists. Wooster's role is even less clear than von Pinn's.

    I don't know where Wooster is, but since the last time we lost track of him, he reappeared pointing a sniper rifle at Klaus' head, I think we should be just a bit concerned.

    Do you mean that when Wooster disappears, he then reappears pointing a gun at someone?

    As Chandler would say, "When you don't know what to do, have Wooster aiming a sniper rifle at somebody's head."

    Listen, Wooster's been around much more recently than that.

    As the resident Wooster Watcher, I would like to note that not only is he in Mechanicsburg, but his last appearance was on the ramparts with Von Mekkhan.

    Personally, I think he is engaged in some counter espionage, dealing with the insidious machinations of Baron Oublenmach who was last seen somewhere in Mechanicsburg.

    That doesn't mean that Wooster won't appear ready to snipe someone at a future point.

    I still want to know is it possible that Von Pinn is Otilia? And yes I realize that we have seen Von Pinn bleed. I just think that it's a little too coincidental that Von Pinn fell down the hole and Otilia climbs up damaged. Plus, Von Pinn has been around for a loooong time. And with that "My King" reference I'm almost convinced that she is indeed Otilia.

    No, it is not.

    Von Pinn is a biological construct of mysterious origins
    Otilia is a mechanical construct of known origins - she is one of Van Rijn' Muses

    Coincidence is not correlation, let alone causation. Besides, how would Der Kestle get into Von Pinn?

    Yes that is true.

    Biological Construct vs. Muse
    Then who was Von Pinn's King? (Yes, I realize it's up a post)
    The Storm King? Maybe, I also now see the height difference.
    I've just been trying to find out where Von Pinn is from since this scene.

    Actually, it's more like "biological constructs do not transform into mechanical constructs due to falling damage." And remember that Von Pinn is biological enough to be wiped out by Sleep Gas, so it's not a Terminator situation either.

    Von Pinn's King is the Storm King. Her Creator is Van Rijn (or Time Traveling Gil ). Her last mistress was Lucrezia.

    And don't worry - Von Pinn will be back. I'm looking forward to an Othar-Von Pinn Smackdown in the near future

    So would this be where he tries and succeeds to recruit her as his spunky girl sidekick with hilarious results.

    I think you might be forgetting a trio of Jägers.

    <Unless you mean them when you said "Wild Jäger", singular - I thought you might be referring to Jenka>

    But, yes, Wooster is the other missing piece of the gang I was thinking of. One we get Da Boyz and Wooster back in the fold, we'll have everyone more or less back together.

    Possibly, but don't forget that Wooster's allegiance is to Queen Albia, not Agatha. He's on Agatha's side because Albia ordered him to be - and since Agatha doesn't appear to be willing to go to England as the hostage/pawn Albia wanted her as, Wooster may have decided that her interests are better served elsewhere.

    No, Wooster is on Agatha's side because Gil ordered him to

    Two volumes yes, but several days? I think not. They seem to have snuck Agatha into the castle in the afternoon of the same day she arrived (which would be the day after the fight at Sturmhalten), and Gill entered that evening. Gil then spent the rest of the night working with Pinky, while Agatha fussed over Tarvek and built her death ray. The next morning, she came to find him and since then they've been busy with the Si Vales Valeo.

    So, the last time we saw Wooster was yesterday, the last time we saw the von Mekkhens was perhaps an hour ago when the Lion was activated.

    Awesome title for the new thread! This particular panel is one of the sexiest in the history of Girl Genius, and that's saying something.

    Another "It's my fault, I make it look easy" day! Those never seem to get old...

    But I think we must wonder again why Violetta doesn't just slap the choker back on Agathezia... At this point, we can't argue the si vales circuit. Overconfidence, perhaps. This time.
