The Heterodynes don't seem like the type to care about such things.
    The Castle had, for an extended period of time, zero (0) Heterodynes. Then Agatha came to it, and now it has one (1) Heterodyne. It very much does not want to go back to zero Heterodynes, which is what will happen if Agatha gets herself killed before she can sort out her problems and figure out what the relationships with Gil and Tarvek are going to look like. In fact, with Bill and Barry indefinitely MIA, if Agatha dies there may never be another Heterodyne to rule over the Castle. If Agatha were to have children or cloned herself or otherwise provided a guarantee that there could be more Heterodynes in residence, the Castle would probably be a bit more cavalier about Agatha's health and life (just a bit, being The Heterodyne probably engenders a bit of protectiveness) but as it is.. well, they had to shut it down because even being The Heterodyne wasn't enough to over-ride it when it wanted to stop Agatha from killing herself.

    Like, one could argue that, under the original body, Anveka never really "Died", and the clank is just an assistive device like a wheelchair.
    (Of course, Anveka DID die, but people don't know that).
    That's why I said "Highly Likley" - that is a possible "out" for Anveka before she died, depending where the line gets drawn, whether Europa has/had a bias against having a female in the top slots and whether the person concerned is powerful enough to run roughshod over the rules.

    I'm not sure that the 'clank as wheelchair' argument would work anymore- it took me a moment or two to find, but the scenes in the Mechanicsburg hospital show clearly that Clankevka didn't bother with the subterfuge anymore- the pressurized chamber-thing that Anevka's body was riding around in is conspicuously absent.

    "Agatha" (Lucrezia) cut off the tubes connecting the clank to the casket way back in Sturmhalten - leading to the reveal that the clank did not in fact need them, and Tarvek turning off "Anevka" and replacing the head with a Lu installation. However nobody else is under the illusion that the Anevka is alive, either - in the hospital she is referred to (to her face) as "the clank that thinks she's Princess Anevka".
    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.

    Yeah I think Kaja just handed us our next thread title, I vote for "A giant corkboard of continuity madness!".

    I like to think they read all the boards such as this one, speculating on who the third claimant might be, and had a head slapping moment of "oh man, we'd forgotten about that, we need to think this through!" No one's going to nitpick your continuity to keep you honest like rabid fans :D.

    I am a little annoyed at another filler page today, given that we had a side-story, a recap page and then 8 pages (2 of which were filler) along the main story.

    That said, though, I'd much rather have a filler page today to resolve any continuity errors then to have everything fall apart. So, bring on the giant corkboard of continuity madness!

    Yeah, it's tough to argue with A Giant Corkboard of Continuity Madness being the best title.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    It's going to be a difficult one to beat, for sure. But there's still two pages to go, and anything could happen in the next two pages.

    Alas, my many (not very) well thought out title suggestions again fall by the wayside. What is a modestly mad scientist to do?

    In unrelated thoughts, what do mimmoths eat? Real elephants and mammoths eat leaves and grass (with the occasional fruit), but mimmoths are too small to properly ferment their food. I suppose they could have digestive tracts similar to rabbits and guinea pigs, where they send the food multiple times down their whole digestive tracts.

    Remember, he is a cat. Despite his human level intellect, he still thinks like a cat so his descriptors are going to be skewed. As for tarvek, he is probably annoyed that he is getting called out for intentionally pretending not to recognize the interest he is being shown. He is VERY good at playing ignorant and hiding things. He does not want to get mixed up in any english romance when he is still after agatha and trying to be the storm king. But he cant reject her because obviously thats not a wise thing to do to the daughter of an immortal queen. So he is likely pretending not to notice and hoping she never gets up the nerve to be direct about it.

    Orotine is a wild card, and not one Tarvek trusts. Given his superior knowledge on muses and their history, I wouldn't dismiss it as simple paranoia.

    Now, this could be because Orotine's behavior during or after the fall of the Storm King makes Tarvek question her allegiance. A Muse of Geometry could reasonably be expected to jump ship to a preferable circumstance once her original purpose cannot be furthered, and she can certainly be expected to make this conclusion and pick a new angle far sooner than her sisters would. Ergo, Tarvek could easily expect her to be a traitor and manipulator. It's almost explicitly her stated nature.

    Alternatively, Tarvek is outright stated himself to be expecting divide and conquer tactics here in England. He was amused at the dance at just how many women have been directed like arrows at Gil, but none at him - right before Orotine showed up. Tarvek knows himself quite well, he knows the muses are something of a weakness for him. Putting Orotine in front of him right now seems less like kismet and more like conspiracy, so he is triple-guessing everything the muse has to say in order to figure out just what her game is and - with luck - the game of her compatriots/superiors/whatever.
