    Default Girl Genius XIII: "Gott's Leedle Feesh in Trousers!"

    Welcome to the next installment of the Girl Genius Thread!

    Some elegant and finely-crafted links follow:

    Links to Previous Threads


    Comic Links
    Link to current comic and link to the beginning of the strip. (Updates MWF @ Midnight [Eastern Time])
    The Continuing Adventures of Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer! (Updated sporadically)
    A compilation (and much easier to read if you're just catching up) of the entries can be found here at the GG website.
    And if one goes to snapbird.org and types in "Othar" in the 'Who?' field, all of Othar's adventures can be read on one page (albiet in reverse order of posting).
    Mirror of the comic found on LiveJournal (Often will update before the main page is updated, so beware of spoilers)
    Mirror of the comic found on Facebook (Will occasionally have Girl Genius related news)
    And one can find mirrors of Girl Genius on deviantArt as well. (Occasionally Kaja will put up or link to interesting GG related art that is found on dA)

    Reference Links
    Wiki Project devoted to to Girl Genius
    Wikipedia entry on Girl Genius.
    TV Tropes page on Girl Genius.
    The Secret Blueprints (NOTE: Contains background information on the GG Universe, so it should probably be read after "catching up" to the newest comic, as it contains many spoilers.)

    Social Media and News Links
    Kaja Foglio's LJ Page and Studio Foglio News LJ Page (Both updated infrequently)
    The News Page on the Girl Genius website. (updated slightly more frequently than the Studio Foglio LJ page)
    Kaja & Phil's Personal Facebook Page (Updated infrequently)
    Links to Webcomic Ranking websites. (Used to have Vote Incentives [sketches, parodies of strips, etc] that were changed daily. Might once again.)
    A twitter account that basically is a catch-all feed for Girl Genius related news.
    Cheyenne Wright's Twitter and LiveJournal Accounts (The colorist's twitter and LJ pages)
    And finally,
    Phil Foglio's LJ page. (hasn't updated in a while)

    Sneaky gate: Named from this hidden gate in comic, it has become a name for viewing new comics early. Remember, if you're going to discuss the new comic, put it in spoiler boxes until the release time (12am EST).

    Sneaky gating 101;
    1. Right click the comic image.
    2. Select view image or copy paste the image location into the address bar.
    3. Modify the date to be the day you're trying to look at. (ex. 20120111 -> 20120113)
    4. Go to the modified url.
    5. Enjoy the comic!
    6. Alternately, be disappointed when there's no early comic to read.

    Well, if there was any doubt that Higgs is someone important to the Castle and the Heterodynes, that first link dispels it totally! And the second one just seems to be setting up a Chekov's Gun situation where Professor Tiktoffen's "little device" is still available should it be needed...

    As for today's strip: Jaegers fighting giant weasel, what's not to like?

    at first I thought the weasel had beefy arms growing out of its forehead, but then I saw the jager teeth and figured out that something was gnawing on its head while thy also punched at it...

    The fact he calls them masters certainly gives credence to the hypothesis that he is the secret general, too.

    And the whole, "every 20 years" comment also suggests he is very long lived. Meaning he isnt just some random plant from mechanicsburg in the barons forces.

    On the other hand, it is canonical that the jaeger transformation gives you a random, unique, physical mutation (single horn, skin colour change, etc) as well as a few common-to-all-jaeger ones (pointy teeth, increased physical strength). Higgs would need to be a major exception to this. He might be a different experiment from the jaegers altogether (which should not stop him from being a general, since obviously Krosp was allowed to join).

    If someone took the Jagertroth but didn't drink the Jagerbrau, would that still make that person a Jager?

    Well, we empirically know that drinking the Jagerbrau but not taking (or rather, renouncing/being ejected from) the Jagertroth makes you not a Jager, so it seems likely that the Troth is the decisive factor.

    EDIT: And wow, yeah, that first Chapter 11 page is...interesting. I want to see more interactions between Higgs and the Castle when they can be candid...though that brings a new question, as to what directives the Castle has that force it to keep Higg's identity secret from everyone else, including Agatha?

    It may be more of a scenario where the castle just wont volunteer the information. If agatha ever says, "Yo castle, tell me who higgs is and why you two seem to have a connection?" Then I bet the castle would speak.

    Agreed. Der Kestle may not be aware that Agatha doesn't know - as long as Higgs performs his duties satisfactorily, he might not care (although he clearly was getting close to caring). And even if Higgs didn't, it is not Der Kestle's place to tell the master how to deal with her minions. Or if Higgs really is a secret minion of some kind (general or not), Der Kestle may be acting under order not to blow his cover.

    I think the only person Der Kastel has orders not to tell who Higgs is came from Higgs himself. In a no verbal fashion. http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20100222

    Eh, I feel like it removes a lot of the mystery around Higgs. Even not knowing about the "secret Jaegergeneral" it was a major theory back in the Great Movement Chamber.

    With the new Ch. 11 page, the fact that he's a Secret Jaegergeneral is nearly as canonical as Gil & Zeetha being siblings.

    Ah well. Thems the breaks.

    Wow, I didn't notice that. Well, I must say that both Higgs and the Castle has some right in what they say. Yes, Agatha needs a friend and only Zeetha does she have, but Higgs also "actually likes" Zeetha. Also, Tiktoffen and Vole wouldn't have almost killed Agatha and the others if Higgs had been there.

    Well, I am thinking that "Sacred Vow" made him somewhat immortal. As long as there is a Heterodyne, he can't die - something like that.

    Wait... didn't the original Storm King vow to seek the Heterodyne girl forever?

    I must say I like the Jaeger with the bull horns and fez. Nice to see him "in charge", though he appears to be too "Bull headed" to be real leadership. That ferret really seems to have this fight by the horns though. But knowing jaegers this fight will be steered toward victory.

    I honestly felt kinda bad for ferret-keeper girl in this comic. She looks so broken as she first appears.
