    Well, it seems Tweedle is popular as ever.

    Also, it's a shame the Bang and Zeetha friendship won't last.

    I dunno,
    looks like a set up where Bang will use „destruction of base was legit revenge“ as an op out of her own revenge.

    Yeah im now getting ready to lay down the keel on a new ship. I think the need to delay her revenge like this is going to eventually make it so she decides she doesnt really want it. Like, they will call it even. Her crew kidnapped her from her home and made it so she hasnt seen her family in years, her response cost bang like 90% of her pirate crew who she clearly seems to cherish in at least some way. Even if its just a MINE sort of thing.

    First: dead rat on his pillow as token of appreciation in handing over the shiny thing. Do we know what the shiny thing is? Because it's now Chekov's Shiny Thing, having been mentioned twice. It needs to be important.

    Second: Martellus in hiding is Martellus up to no good. This is an immutable law of the G&G Universe.

    Third: I think Bang really does like Zeetha, but I'm still not sure that the revenge she's built the last few years of her life around will be set aside for a mere friendship. And that's where Zeetha and Bang are different - both warriors with an honor code, but Zeetha's code is of a princess, not a pirate.

    Fourth: Bang is 100% right about Martellus having what I think is called a "histrionic personality". Dude is always on stage. Which is why him absenting himself from the stage is so very, very suspicious. If the position of Storm King were 100% ceremonial, he'd be a great one. At the current moment in Europa, they seem to need someone who can actually govern, and not merely in the "let's kill all threats to my power" sense.

    I imagine so, but just because the king hasn't named every deer in his private hunting reserve doesn't mean he approves of poaching. If she becomes aware of the abduction (perhaps the chef complains about the mice overrunning the kitchen after the cat disappeared), there may be consequences.

    I'm going to guess Albia likes Martellus just about as well as everyone else does. She has not said the words "Just give me a reason" (to terminate his existence is left unsaid), but she may have thought it.

    Assuming Martellus has even entered her awareness, I suspect that Albia thinks about as well of him as anyone else- he's a useful idiot, albeit one who's brilliant in his own sphere.

    I still find it rather interesting that Tarvek and Violetta considered Tweedle mostly harmless until his reappearance as an ersatz Storm King. The two of them are both highly intelligent, and observant to the point of rampant paranoia, especially when it comes to their crazy family; I wonder what happened to Martellus to change him from 'he made these little teddy bear things' to the scenery-chewing melodramatic opera villain he is now?

    He got power. I get the feeling that up until the family turned on tarvek, martellus wasnt someone who loomed very large in the family. He was more the idle noble type. Albeit with a sparky twist. He liked to hunt and create animals and do his own little plots and plans. But upon getting the chance to rule he grabbed hold with both hands and dedicated himself to it. I liken it to the "heir and a spare" setup. He was the spare, tarvek was the heir. So he didnt have much to do other than maybe plot and plan but even if he did its hard to make a move and not get caught when everyone knows who the next in line is.

    That's not the same thing. Hunting is a privilege, therefore poaching is lèse-majesté.
    And more importantly, the while the king doesn't approve of poaching in general he's not the one dealing with the poachers.
    If she becomes aware of the abduction (perhaps the chef complains about the mice overrunning the kitchen after the cat disappeared), there may be consequences.
    Do you really think anybody is going to bother the GODDESS-QUEEN OF ENGLAND about a pest control issue? Assuming a cook even notices that cat is missing, what's most likely to happen is them putting up some "missing cat" posters if they care enough about that particular cat and/or add an item to their budget proposal to the assistant undersecrtary of the head of palace upkeep under "hygiene equipment" to buy a new cat.

    I'm going to guess Albia likes Martellus just about as well as everyone else does. She has not said the words "Just give me a reason" (to terminate his existence is left unsaid), but she may have thought it.
    You don't rule for millenia if you start blasting royalty that mildly unconvienience you. You just don't. Especially not in the middle of an apocalypse-like mind control crisis led by the one being with a certified kill count of your kind. Priorities.
