    Well, Kat's mom was the right answer! Interesting that we can see she has aged.

    No, it can't be Kat's mom! I already bet my life saving that it would be Jones, who is also Brinnie and Gamma's mother!

    It's so obvious when hear someone say it.

    I think the story was more than deliberately vague about Kat's mom. The singular "they" is supposed to be used for persons who prefer "they" or persons whose gender is unknown (usually, that means someone whose identity is unknown. In Gunnerkrigg, there are probably a fair number of characters where no one knows [or they do know but the answer is a bit difficult to put in human terms]). Using it for Kat's mom was deliberate concealment--unless she's also been split into two or more people (lab accident. Happens all the time. Just ask Mr. Hyde or any clone).

    Or the Annie who said they was thinking of both Kat's parents and didn't notice the other Annie wasn't having exactly the same thought as her after all.

    I'm going to go with "neither Annie knew for certain what the other was thinking, so just to be safe, they was used".

    I was going to say that I was surprised, but then I remembered that I am reading Gunnerkrigg Court.

    What Anja says next might be really interesting.

    time-travel can only be used when there's a stable time-loop in place. Which is kinda like saying 'time travel only works when it works' but somehow I suspect that in the big ball of timey-wimey wibbly-wobbly it actually checks out.

    That convenient box of spare robot parts than Annie finds in the library in the first chapter... will we find out that Kat put it there for her?

    I mean step 1 might be "First, find a situation in which you know time travel has already happened, and then just figure out what you were already going to have done!

    Reading over old chapters, I found this page, which I think may be the only reference to anybody outside the Court knowing about the supernatural (unless the Court runs The Russian Academy of Sciences in this universe).

    To be fair, Brinnie does just sort of seem like the person who's naturally a hugger.

    Other than a few school flashbacks, do we really know anything about Brinnie? Was there like a bonus book or comic that I missed?

    AFAIK, no. She has just been Chekhov's Valkyrie since that short appearance.

    It is one thing to suspend your disbelief. It is another thing entirely to hang it by the neck until dead.

    Verisimilitude -- n, the appearance or semblance of truth, likelihood, or probability.

    The concern is not realism in speculative fiction, but rather the sense that a setting or story could be real, fostered by internal consistency and coherence.

    Thanks -- I remembered it involved when they were students, but couldn't recall the timing in the comic's publication history.
