    THIS is interesting. Brinnie apparently left the Court before 'that', and hasn't been back since. No wonder Anja is so emotional. Brinnie, as well.

    Brinnie made the same assumption about Annie's father as Coyote did. Though she seems not to be a fan of Anthony.

    I think it's more that she's not a fan of Surma dating Tony. Remember: she had a crush on him and he messed it up through his emotion processing issues.

    Embarrassed discomfiture, yes; but I would have thought Brinnie might have gone "AH! THAT is why he did not respond to my overtures, he burned with silent passion for Surma! So romantic! And awkward."

    In other news, mystery seeds are showing up in people's mailboxes. Obviously, Ysengrin.

    There's actually a fairly mundane explanation for this: brushing. It's illegal, and consists of a seller placing fake orders on itself to increase its ranking on services like Ali Baba.

    I prefer to think they are Audrey IIs

    Anyhow, Annies seem to know what the Norns are.

    She's always been very into world mythology (see also: Chapter 2). Probably met a few Valkyries in Good Hope from stab victims or something.

    I wonder if Kat's thinking "Belldandy? Urd? Skuld?". Lord knows, I am.

    I'm still holding to hope in this episode we find out how it is that Eglamore can use the Valknut.

    Valkyries are explicitly not psychopomps by Word of Tom.

    Kat has historically been less knowledgeable about mythology than Annie, so what she knows about them might be limited to what is explained on-panel in the comic.

    However, Kat has been shown to be quite knowledgable about pop culture and might have seen Ah! My Goddess.

    Oh. Of COURSE a Norn would look like the person looking at them! Present, past, and future.

    Little Kat is incredibly adorable.

    Nice touch with the speech balloons blocking their faces when it's the reader's POV.

    And unsurprisingly given what we know of her interests, Kat makes the connection to Belldandy. Grats to those who called it.

    It's refreshing to see characters who are aware of enough to immediately "get it" when they realize they're all seeing something different, instead of once again having a stupid argument over it.
    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.

    I'm kind of surprised it took Kat this long to think "Oh My Goddess", but perhaps she isn't a fan.

    I'm glad Verdandi is cool with it. I wonder how Urd and Skuld liked their comic versions.

    Not that stable though, since Kat is younger than she usually is when she shows up. Unless that means she's going to be going back here again later in life.

    I'd imagine that they don't see the flow of time in the same 'way' that others do so this, being the first time she meets them, means that it's the youngest they've ever seen her.

    So, if I understand correctly, Annie's Dad is actually Chuck Goodrich, sent back in time to avoid a catastrophe by resurrecting Surma and helping creating a robo-army?
