So this time I accidentally posted commentary for this page on last week's page. As a band-aid fix, I'm just going to post that exact post right here and replace last week's post with.... I don't know, probably something about Stephen Moffat. Anyway: Some people have commented that the long, sunbeam-like arms appearing out of the clouds on the Chapter 6 cover reminded them of Fullmetal Alchemist. While I have seen that show (a while ago) the intended reference was the ancient Egyptian god Atem. Prometheus steals the divine fire from the gods. He disrupts the rigid division between what is divine and what is mundane, which makes him a kind of trickster. (It's a bit of mythological mixing, since Prometheus is, of course, a Greek figure.) And since she is the modern Prometheus, Frankenstein is a kind of trickster as well! Except that arguably she is not a trickster because she makes disrupting-the-natural-order an intentional part of her raison d'etre, whereas a traditional trickster disrupts for the lulz.
