    Default Gunnerkrigg Court 3: Mystery Solved!

    Science, magic, robots, elves, headpigeons, what could go wrong???
    Gunnerkrigg Court is an awesome comic and you should read it!

    Now spoilers.

    I'm wondering if Zimmy's condition is somehow related to Annie's... Maybe Zimmy is what happens when Annie tries to have a child and not die herself?

    Zimmy is Annie's time-traveling daughter?

    Probably the same reason she 1) has red highlights in her astral form and 2) was unwilling to help Annie at first. (Technically that second link would work for both, but there you are).

    My guess is psychic cross-contamination, probably from the incident with Jack and the power station.

    In my posts, smilies generally correspond to my expression at the time. As an example, means "huh?" and "Hmm..". Also, "Landis" is fine.

    To me it looks like Zimmy suffers from the same thing that Annie's dad got: some sort of spirit split. (Double Anthony)

    Anthony shouldn't have tried to mess with Spirit-Splitting technology. If this trend continues soon everybody will be immobilized and split into 2.

    Not-Jacktrying to butt in is just the icing on the cake. Though, spiders are good with weaving things together with their webs. Maybe they can help Zimmy. Supposedly they really love her.

    Spirit-splitting technology? Makes sense given Surma's condition, but where was that mentioned in the comic?

    Just inferred from the fact that both Zimmy and Anthony split into two after coming in contact with this thing and from Anthony long standing promise that he will find a cure to his wife's 'illness'

    If you're talking about Friday's update, there was some talk on the GKC forum that it represented some part of Annie's psyche that rode along to give dad a punch in the face.

    I forget. Do the nobodies actually hurt Zimmy? Or do they just try to convince her to stick around in crazyland?
    Also, Kat can't see the new Zimmy. Could Gamma?

    Hm, our Zimmy is probably going to turn out to be another entity which thinks it's Zimmy, isn't it.

    Yep, actually it's Jack, who thinks he is Zimmy. Who is actually Antimony's half sister, and Surma's other daughter by Eglamore.

    Wait, she has a million boyfriends? When did this comic turn into Teen Girl Squad? Can't you totally imagine Cheerleader or the Ugly One saying that:

    Given the most recent update, Wednesday might actually answer some Zimmy questions. Or just feature her shouting something rude and running off.

    Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets.

    It's Tom Siddell, it's going to be a Wednesday link comic for this particular arc... I've quit making bets.

    Thus it goes:-
    Monday: Mind Screw. Wednesday: Wha-- Oh? Friday: Fine -- Maybe?

    Repeat.

    Still loving it, though.

    I think the only time I ever really understand what's going in this comic lately is during a brief, fleeting moment sometime Wednesday mornings. The rest of the time I just throw my hands up in wonder.

    I'm guessing that to Zimmy Kat looks like an unbearably bright, shining angel.

    Because Zimmy is actually a robot.

    And first thing angels say is "fear not", so they must be extremely scary.

    If that's an angel I'd hate to see a demon.

    That thing's chilling in a way I can't quite describe. No wonder Zimmy looks so terrified.

    And why is the face cracked?
