Internal Chronology>Internal Chronology/Mad>Great Pumpkin Conjecture[mad theory]

Pumpkin01 Originating eventsEdit

Von Mekkhan states the boys were off from the castle due to some giant vegetables. So this fixes the time of the Castle explosion events at harvest time. For the sake of drama lets suppose they were up against Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin. The horrific events took place on All hallows eve. Klaus Barry died technically that day. This puts his birth nearly on the autumnal equinox for 1872. That gives some very nice bookends to the 407 days. It also puts Klaus's banishment at the summer solstice. Echo's of Shakespears Midsummers night dream. Klaus gets to play Bottom the chump.

Agatha birthday falls somewhat near Holy Childs Day in December or January.

And Lucrezia's resurrection in current events falls around Mothers day in May.

I think this gets us very close.

So day zero becomes

(Sun) 1870 Jun 19Klaus Skiffhai-ed (Summer solstice)
(Tue) 1871 Mar 21Klaus becomes a father. Gil and Zeetha born (Vernal equinox or Spring Planting)
(Thu) 1872 Sep 19Klaus Barry Born (autumnal equinox)
(Fri) 1873 Oct 31zero day
(Fri) 1873 Oct 31zero day, Lucrezia is 6 and a half months pregnant.
(Mon) 1874 Jan 12 Agatha born (96 years before Kaja) Mother&amp;child
(Tue) 1892 Jan 12 Agatha's 18th Birthday
(Wed) 1892 May 11
Time Manipulation
Just before leaving for Sturmhalten the Baron mentions this is nineteen years after the castles destruction.

In Vrin's account Lucrezia is shown to be visibly pregnant and dressed in winter clothes. This suggests Agatha's birth was in late fall, winter or early spring. The story starts just before spring (Pisces) in early March and sees three full moons without a mention of a birthday for her. Furtherore the first novel states the story starts in March. Agatha is still considering the dress she got on her birthday a favorite. So we eliminate early spring on that basis, concluding the story happens in 1892 and not 1893. For the sake of drama and because we know the tellers are notorious recyclers we guess that Agatha was born on Kaja birthday. We hold this guess lightly. Any birthday between the eighteenth anniversary of the castles destruction and beginning of the story would lead to the same conclusion of 1892.

Current EventsEdit

Agatha meets von Pinn. Von Pinn checks her watch at 3 minutes to 5 in the sign of Pisces. We see three full moons before Agatha enters Mechanicsburg. Indeed the third comes before she battles the Baron in Strumhalten.

The first novel Agatha H and the Airship City mentions that Agatha's Green dress is a birthday gift from Lilith and that the story is starting in March. The first dinner aboard Castle Wulfenbach is presentation night which is a Monday.

After two and a half year timeskipEdit

(Fri) 1894 Dec 07 Tweedle, Agatha and company fall through the portal. Run from the explosion that follows. Tweedle fights off relatives and smokeknights. Gets pricked with a poisoned dagger. Seeks shelter in his secret lab where Agatha in her sleep saves his life by amputating the hand and replacing it with a clever mechanical one.
(Mon) 1894 Dec 10 Agatha wakes from her sleep to discover she is being held prisoner by Tweedle. He has modified her body chemistry to need his touch. She escapes by by wacking him upside the head with the blunt end of a cleaver and modifying her wasp weasel to provide the healing touch.
(Tue) 1894 Dec 11 early evening

After crafting a sleigh pulled by a mechanical Reindeer she flys past the full moon pulled by a quartet of Schweincopters. Tweedle gives chase along with his Sparkhounds. As Agatha heads for Blackridge gap, he takes a shortcut via Topple Ridge and lands nearly in front of her. She takes a sharp right turn to avoid him. There is a gate that wasn't there two and a half years ago and she is headed for it.

(Tue) 1894 Dec 11 later evening

Agatha manages to get through the gate in typical Agatha fashion. She runs into three Wulfenbach clanks and identifies herself. Tweedle joins the fun still chasing Agatha and shooting the clank before it can relay its full message from Gil.

(Wed) 1894 Dec 12 two am

Gil gets word from the clanks that an Agatha has appeared.[1]

(Wed) 1894 Dec 12 You are now
