Seeing the adorable mini-GPC in this week’s episode got me thinking. Are the two GPCs connected at opposite ends of the umbilicus, like the mythological amphisbaena? Or do they branch off of a central umbilicus? If so, does that mean we’re looking at two heads of massive GPC hydra? If so, how much of the moon’s surface does she control? Should the Mads be scared? Should we be scared? What if all we see is a few tentacles of a massive GPCthulhu?!
I’m currently suffering with the dreaded c-word and this is the kind of thing my diseased brain is fixating on.
Hope you get better soon, @Dr_Phantom. I’m getting (not serious) surgery next week and we thought my wife might have had it today. Thankfully she didn’t because that would likely put off my surgery for a month or two.
Thanks, everyone. I should probably point out that it’s covid and not the other, more serious c-word. For me it’s not too bad, but my wife got it first and has to hand in her PhD thesis this week after many, many pandemic-related delays. Naturally the disease itself had to make a personal appearance right at the end, and unfortuntely we’re all out of reanimated mastodons to gore it.
Au contraire! (Though, knowing this is dependent on having seen a specific live tour.)
The Cheesy Movie Circus Tour gave GPC an origin story in which she shed the original Gypsy like a reptile’s skin to become more compact. GPC later referred to her earlier self as her “sad dragon phase.” 
I won’t quibble over it. There’s no point in having an argument. This is one that, IMO, does fall under “Just relax.”
But my take/understanding is from GPC-2’s introduction this season. Emily said she rebuilt GPC into this more portable version. So that’s the canon for me.
More to the point, the SatOL and the SimOL (do we have a better way of distinguishing those?) have separate sets of bots who are not connected to each other other than video chat. GPC lives on the SatOL and GPC-2 is on the SimOL. I don’t think there’s a full-sized GPC on the SimOL anymore.
Yeah, well, we had a few sitting around for ages, just sitting there taking up space. So we used them on frivolous things like fighting stop-motion robot scorpions. Now we can’t get any more because we think the museum’s realised that every time we visit one of their displays walks out with us.
Good luck with the surgery. Hopefully you’ll stay covid-free until then.
