    Gil and Tarvek sound more and more like two brothers needling each other. But, in the face of Tweedles, the automatically unite and fight together. He should back off while he still has a chance.

    Is my memory playing tricks on me os did they change Tweedle's suit. I could swear it was white before and now it's gold. The candy in the hair thing is looking better than I thought it would and Zeetha went "military" style.

    Someone pointed out Zeetha's toothy grin on a previous page, but that could've been just the art style and the Foglio exaggeration. However, this time, she's showcasing a smile that's still very toothy, but not otherwise exaggerated. Interesting! So, what else will she get in due time? Horns? Claws? The whole Jager package?

    Does anybody else think that Zeetha and Violetta wore eachother's outfits? Violetta is, after all, a minor member of a minor branch of Europa's nobility. Zeetha is the heir to a queendom (albeit of unknown size, location, and power).

    I don't think so. Zeetha is after all a warrior-princess, so a more military-styled uniform fits her style exactly. Violetta is here more in the role of handmaiden/bodyguard, and therefore would wear a dress that's almost as fancy as the dresses of those she's accompanying, as a show of power. Note that her dress lacks the figurehead-like decoration, meaning that she's probably not wearing a ship-dress like Agatha.

    Violetta has dreamed of wearing a pretty dress to a party almost as long as we've known her. I dare you to tell her she can't. For over here. WAY over here.

    Also, called it.

    Oh, Zeetha's been toothy way, way back in the comic. All of these are pre-treatment: Panel 2 - second page of Zeetha, first panel of toothy goodness; Panel 4; Panel 2; Panel 2; Panel 2 (where she is almost as toothy as Pinkie, without the drugs.

    Some of them aren't immediately obvious as she has her teeth together, but all of them have a lot of dental in there. She does tend to get toothy when excited.

    EDIT: And Oh yes, Violetta goes to the ball.

    No, no, no, there are rules. You can only steal from towns you are officially sacking. When you are a visitor, you have to behave (and, given the Master's feelings about Heterodynes and what I assume they did before he banned them [with credit for good behavior], you have to wonder what their definition of "behave" is. But, they still did it).

    Tweedle's thing has always been absolute confidence, even when it's rarely warranted. He's gotten thwarted constantly and pretty much both his big onscreen arcs had him nearly managing to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, but nonetheless he steadfastly believe he's the toughest dude to ever exist and hesitation happens to other people. It's sort of his schtick.

    To be fair, he is pretty good at what he does, as seen in Paris where he went against Andy. He would make a decent general for Gil when he takes over, much like Tarvek serving as vizier and working in the shadows.

    Even I know you don't say stuff like that.

    The exchange between Seffie and Agatha is gold though.

    It's hardly Gil and Agatha's first dance. I think he will be a lot more relaxed than Tarvek thinks.

    I'm almost expecting the next page to be on the lines of "Do you remember our first dance", which was followed by a duel, Othar Tryggvassen Gentleman Adventurer being punched through the lab by Klaus, and followed by Agatha unknowingly triggering the reactivation of the slaver engine. How much of this will come up in the comic I don't know, but I'm almost expecting Othar to turn up.

    And that's why I will always root for Gil. He liked Agatha for herself, before he knew her lineage.

    Ditto.

    Additionally the non-canonical filler of Gilgamesh, Agatha, and child is utterly adorable.

    And pointy ears are always in fashion. But she has to fight for the hat.

    And I'm so pleased that Violetta got to dance with all the boys in her pretty dress.

    Now now, don't jump the gun. The night is still VERY young, so who knows what mayhem the Profs are about to spring on us. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to see Othar jumping out of a cake.

    I don't dislike Othar, but I really hope he doesn't show up right now. Still, somebody is going to show up during this party: Bang, Madwa using the Lantern, somebody.

    Can I just say that violetta is showing off one HECK of a profile there? I know sparky science allows for the violation of physics, but that decolletage is only maintained by friction, half melted candy, or the madness of a sparky dress maker. Possibly all of the above. Going by her posture im leaning towards friction and possibly strained dress material.

    I mean anything is better than "what happened to your hair".
    I would probably manage a "Interesting look" or something like that.

    But Martellus? He should've trained this stuff on account of, you know, being high nobility and the whole Stormking stuff.
    Wanting to sabotage Gil and Tarvek is fine, but "they can't hit me if I blow myself up" is not the right approach.

    He's not good at the social stuff. This is Tarvek's arena, and probably Seffie's as well.
