Geoduck bivalve from Pacific Northwest Relationship Status: What is this thing you call love?

wild mass guess They stuff her into a mermaid costume/clank, she talks to the Great Cetecean, and because she's Special and Trustworthy, it reveals some stunning bit of info that it's never shared with any surface-dweller. Maybe that the G Cs are second-stage Sparky whales, and it tells how that process actually works, thus uncovering Something Nasty about the source of Albia's power (AKA this "Garden" of hers..) [down]Yeah, I almost listed that possibility. There will be some Big Revelation.

Given that Albia was concerned with protecting them, or at least with the harm Dr. Vapnoople nearly inflicted on them, it seems more likely the will have a clew about the sinking of England. The Other is involved, you may be sure.

If I were a landing thruster, which one of these would I be? Aaah!

Yes, but given that limit is beyond one meter (in the case of the sunflower sea star), I think something can be arranged.

But star fish have all these little suckery feet. Would Agatha really want them attached to her 'prominent features'?

Also, it doesn't have to be a biological starfish, even if they're specifically trying to match the statue. Mechanical or sculpted equivalents would probably be fine.

With four Sparks working on this, (Four and a half, I guess, if Rakethorn helps as well..) they can throw together a costume which genuinely disguises her.

I'm looking forward to hearing more about this feud - we already know Albia's version - Vapnoodle "awoke the Great Cetaceans, enslaved them, warped them, turned them against us", but that doesn't seem to be the full story - sure, the Cetaceans are angry at Vapnoodle too, but they also seem mad at Albia, maybe she was the one who put them to sleep in the first place, and Dimitri freed them from Albia's grasp, made them more powerful - for his own ends, sure, but they still prefered being free and powerful, to Albia's chagrin?

Hmm, that sounds very likely. She also likely to have killed a bunch of them during the war, and that is a grudge by itself too.

[up]Dimo: The Great Cetacean thinks that Agatha is a mermaid. You Sparks need to build a costume for her ASAP.

Sparks: LOL, funny joke, Dimo.

Dimo: No, I'm serious, the giant grumpy hyper-whale that just swallowed all of us thinks that Agatha is a mermaid.

Sparks: Mass "Oh, Crap!"

Sparks: We can build a tail by combining the sub's main fleegle-shaft... with the snarkwave-scanner diodes... and the sheets off the bunks!

Sparks: [Run off to do that.]

Dimo: Excellent. No longer my problem.

@Medinoc: I'm choosing to believe that it is spelled correctly and that the last panel is just cutting it off.

That said, with those four Sparks working on it already, I'm sure they'll have a solution even before Agatha comes along to improve it. Of course, there's the non-zero chance that's exactly what Rakethorne is afraid of.
