    A mad song keeper? Has it been heterodyning?

    And the Deepspeaker has developed a taste for marmite? Clearly these are the end of days.

    These over-sized fish REALLY like to jump to idiotic conclusions. I don't buy Albia as being a real good gal, but there is zero evidence she's to blame here. AND she kicked their tails last time. Hmm. Wonder if this situation is connected to why the British Isle are sinking?

    The Deepspeaker likes Marmite! I knew there was another civilized person somewhere.

    Hmmm. Is the Songkeeper the person guarding Albia's memories, I wonder.

    Given the context, the Songkeeper sounds like the equivalent of the Deep Ones' reference librarian.

    Maybe he actually has to keep the songs from escaping.

    Or maybe they have a prison called Song Song.

    We don’t know the history between the fishes and Albia and there have been several hints to her not being as benevolent as she presents herself.

    Besides not trusting a spark around stuff you can’t afford to see broken is just common sense.

    The Great Ceteatans and Albia having had beef with each other is exactly why she's their first suspect for weird going ons from her domain that affect them.
    That they discarded those suspicions pretty much as soon as they found out Vapnoodle was involved shows they're actually quite reasonable.

    In the meantime, are the Baron, the Heterodyne, and both Storm Kings presumed dead? That would be... a hell of an ad for Albia's hospitality. And not good for Europa's stability, either.

    Well, there is "presumed dead" and then there is "presumed dead". When high-power sparks are involved, nobody really accepts a diagnosis of "dead" until they see reports of a body, preferably followed by an autopsy report.

    "Don't presume anyone dead until you put their brain through a blender.
    And even then you should consider it a unconfirmed rumor at best."

    Sounds like good advise. And not just when dealing with Sparks.

    From all the info we have the Great Ceteatans started it by attacking England because of Vapnoople. And as I said I don't trust Albia that far but going and starting a war for no reason is utterly stupid. And one thing we know is that Albia is NOT stupid.

    Only the Heterodyne is there on invitation. Both Storm Kings are incognito, and the Baron will not be mentioned "out of fear of severe diplomatic repercussions".

    Well, Gil and Thorpe's exploits in Moonbark's (and Lady Ariadne's) museum landed him on the front page of the news, but I suppose Albia can make them forget if They must.

    A bit late, but I've not seen panel 3 of this strip mentioned in the discussion about Zeetha's Jagerdraught.

    It seems obvious the Foglios had it in mind by that point at least.

    Oh, I agree that he was likley created on Castle Wulfenbach (in fact I think the print novel suggests that he has never set foot on the ground). I recall Krosp describes himself as a failed experiment slated for destruction. I suppose the question is was he created by the Vapnoople who had a hidden Bear army, or the one who was hiding an army of plushies.

    In fact, now that I think about it, I suspect designed by the first and built by the second.
    And Krosp confirms it (last panel) - built on Castle Wulfenbach, after the coring.

    It just dawned on me "Song Keeper". Music. And what does Agatha do all the time when she sparks out? She sings.

    This does sound similiar to how Albia stores her memories.

    Okay, further proof that whatever it was that caused the islands to sink was catastrophic, even for Sparks.

    Who else thinks that there is such a strong resemblance between Agatha's mer-suit design and the Cetacean's recollections because Agatha and/or crew will eventually travel back in time and be involved in England's sinking? The beard of the 'mer-man' in Panel 3 really puts me in mind of Martellus's postiche beard.

    He looks a bit slim for Tweedle, though. A crash diet, perhaps?

    That seems pretty far-fetched, since Martellus had that fake beard on for a costume party, not as part of a normal outfit, and he says that he doesn't like it. I see no reason why he'd ever wear it again.

    Off-topic thoughts from today's comic:

    What the **** is Oggie's hand doing in the first panel?

    Oh, he's sewing. With a frame and everything. My sewing never looked like that...

    What's he sewing?
    I'm pretty much the opposite of concise. If I fail to get to the point, please ask me and I'm happy to (attempt to) clarify.
