Shipping Department

As we reorganize this blog and get it in gear again, I'm designating Sunday as our official "fun" day. Since I have the emotional maturity of a teenage fangirl, I must ask you to indulge me one more time on my Girl Genius shipping; after this, I won't do it again for a while. I swear. But I have to put up a post on this one. I have figured it out. I have the perfect ship:

(a.k.a. "Kragatha," "Krospatha," or perhaps "Agathosp")

No, really. Let's look at all the reasons:
  1. There can be no deeper love than that between a woman and her cat.

  2. Krosp has already referred to Agatha as his "territory."

  3. Krosp consistently hates Agatha's other suitors. He called Lars an idiot. He insulted Gilgamesh to his face. He hates Othar with a violent passion. And I don't remember if he's met Tarvek yet, but when he does, I'm certain he won't like him. I don't know about you, but I detect jealousy.

  4. In some comics, Agatha is seen getting out of bed in the morning, and Krosp is already in the room. I suspect they're sleeping together. Now Krosp has to do the honorable thing or he'll be a cad as well as a cat.

  5. Krosp is a snappy dresser.

  6. Gilgamesh isn't.

  7. Agatha has already seen Krosp naked. I think it's Herodotus or somebody who says that when that happens, you have to marry the person or kill him. Or something.

  8. In the radio dramas, Agatha is played by Kaja Foglio and Krosp is played by Phil Foglio. So their voice actors are already married.

  9. In spite of some hints to the contrary, I am convinced, after carefully perusing the comic for the fifteenth time, that Agatha isn't really all that into Gilgamesh anyway. Are you, Agatha?

That's what I thought. So there you go. All the reasons Agatha and Krosp were meant to be together.
