  1. Likely the two years in limbo were spent trying to set-up to make his move. Stuff like adjusting to being in limbo, learning about the EGS world, 'killing' Helena and Demetrius (or at least setting things up so that they die improperly) in order to open up some wiggle room, putting up with Pandora's cryptic advise. His only plan that we know of requires Ellen zapping Elliot. (The TFG itself wouldn't do the job. Otherwise why not complete the plan when he was influencing Tedd to zap Elliot in anger?) So he couldn't have made a bid to get his body back before Ellen was created. As for why there's no evidence of Ellen being influenced to zap Elliot, she was emotionally vulnerable, but her emotions were also all over the place, so Magus might have had trouble getting her to focus on the course of action he wanted. Or Helena and Demetrius might have shown up at the last minute.
  2. I would like to interject that the DGB is a subdivision of the FBI. It was mentioned in one of the earlier comics, but I don't remember which one. Though due to the paranormal division's highly secretive nature, special security clearances are likely needed to view any of their files or even know of their existence outside of a fairly nondescript section of the FBI's org chart. So, I doubt they would willingly share with the rest of the bureau. (Then again, Arthur J. Arthur previously appeared publicly as a critic and consultant to the FBI, so the existence of the Paranormal Investigations Division might be public knowledge, just everything they do is kept secret.) My guess, his first attempt would have been right after Ellen was separated from Elliot. She was emotionally vulnerable and the dewitchery diamond was right there. It would make the most sense for him to act there and accomplish the final steps of his plan all at once.
  3. This make sense, and is relatively the same logic behind legalese. Describe everything in as exact and precise terms as possible to prevent unintended interpretations of important contracts and laws and such from occuring.

    Though Mr. Tensaided achieved his level of geekdom not be eliminating his real life, but by infusing his real life with as much geekdom as possible.

    That certainly is reminiscent of Pandora's "Cloud of Infinite Chaos" form with the numerous eyes in the background and all-black appearance. So it's either Pandora or someone imitating her. My theoretical money is on Pandora. I don't think the cloud of chaos fits any other known immortal's style, and I don't see a much of a reason to try to frame Pandora on the spirit plane.
  6. Magic has, at least, two conflicting major objectives. It wants to be secret and mysterious and it wants to be used dramatically. So it has to balance those two objectives. It's also a massive troll, so it'll also do something if it thinks it's funny.
  7. Hmm...I imagine Diane would be understanding. She wouldn't have a lot of emotional impact tied up in Mr. Pompoms. Susan, on the other hand, would likely have to wrestle with a torrent of feelings. Her emotional side would want to hate him, but her logical side would state that it wasn't his fault, as he thought he was incapable of fathering children. I see her logical side winning out in the end (Susan does tend to listen to her logic more than her emotions) though it might take a while to get there. Though to be honest, I doubt Adrian would be Mr. Pompoms father. More likely, he would be farther up the ancestral line, as I would imagine he would get into attempting to date and such much earlier in his lifespan. He is hundreds of years old after all.
  8. Heka didn't say anything about Dreaming (having magic without being awakened) people, just "Wizards, Seers, Those with magic affinities..." In a Q&A, it was mentioned that Greg could be Dreaming, "like Elliot and Justin used to be." It's been mentioned that anyone can train to build up their magical potential and awaken. Simply, Elliot and Justin (and likely Nanase before she was Awakened) gained minor magical abilities through ASMA. As for why it didn't work for Eric or the other students, I'm not sure. Maybe the other students didn't have the right mindsets and/or personalities? Elliot's pretty much an archetypal boy scout and was likely there to train his mind and body to be better at protecting people (by beating up bullies) and Justin was there to spend time with friends and help pull his life back together. Eric at least seemed to be one of those people who were in the dojo for the awesome, flashy powers, instead of camaraderie or some altruistic motivation. ASMA is poorly understood by the person who founded the art. Honestly I'm slightly surprised he managed to get it to work with other people at all. As for why Jerry couldn't find Sarah's affinity, that's simple. Sarah is a D-Rank talent and her affinity spell requires S-Rank power. She's simply to weak to leverage it, so it didn't even show up. And fairies other than Pandora need a proper set of circumstances in addition to permission in order to mark someone. (Though since she has an innate magic affinity, she does fit into the group of people that Heka had mentioned)
  9. Possible, but not guaranteed. We have a few examples of people that have neither an innate affinity or are a wizard. Such as Elliot. He has mostly girl-based spells, but that's due to the manner of his awakening. While it is possible for someone to be of a lineage that includes wizards and not be a wizard, like Nanase, she still had a detectible aspect to her aura, that the griffins recognized as a mark of royalty in their world.
  10. Either the missing word is 'fairy' (or an equivalent like 'elf') or Dan is setting up for one of the biggest misdirections in EGS history. Wizards and affinities being the result of diluted fairy bloodlines makes sense. They're powerfully magical entities. If their magicalness can be passed on to their offspring, it would stand to reason that further offspring would retain some magicalness. That would explain the family lines of inborn affinities and wizards. Wizards outside of magical linages could be the result of dormant 'genes'* becoming active again, (or magic itself having some fun and obfuscating things with random data points.) It would also make sense for why the fairies lied to themselves about that fact. A large number of magical lineages could cause problems with magic reset type stuff. Also it might make for weird and potentially problematic interactions with Fairy Law. They're limited to "Guide and Empower" when dealing with mortals, but Fairy Law is dependent on perception. It's not too much of a stretch to consider wizards and people with affinities to be "not mortal" due to them being technically part fairy. *I put quotes around genes, because I'm not sure if fairy magicalness would be passed on by actual DNA and genetics or by some other, possibly magical mechanism. If it is via actual genetics, then I would guess that affinities are dominant genes, as they're reliably passed down through families, and wizardry is recessive, because wizard linages are fairly rare, and you do have random wizards popping up at times.

    I would like to note, that while losing GPS would be terrible, smartphones are not wholely dependent on it for location data. A smartphone can use other means such as cellular signal or a wi-fi connection to generate the location data. GPS is a lot more accurate and ubiquitous than other options, but the other options are workable in most situations.

    With good enough gene therapy, genetic engineering, and other birth related technology, building a population from 2 individuals would certainly be possible. A large investment of resources but possible. Though I vaguely remember something about genetic engineering being frowned upon in the Star Trek verse due to Kahn and his ilk. Also I had another thought of a possible reason for aliens to invade the Earth. To wipe out humans in order to spite another alien species or group that had taken an observational interest in humanity (kinda like hobbyist bird watchers)
  13. Depends if the maid is independent or part of a company. Independents are more likely to wear white and black as it's more professional. Companies are more likely to be white and the main company color. And then you have anime maids, where the uniforms can be as colorful as the hair styles.
  14. I forget the name of the game, but there's a horror game that lets you temporarily see what nearby monsters see, so you can know when it's safe to come out of hiding or need to find another hiding spot.
  15. Supersonic planes flying overhead don't break windows, because the intensity of sound is inversely proportional to the square of the distance, and the shockwave of breaking the sound barrier(and the shockwave from explosions) follows the same principle of sound: differences in air pressure. So overhead planes won't cause problems due to distance from the shockwave's epicenter, but if Cheerleadra goes supersonic at ground level, it'll be like she set off a bomb. Especially if she's inside a building, where the shockwave can reflect off the walls(unless the shockwave is stronger than the walls, in which case it will break them.) This is, of course, assuming she doesn't have the fancy reduced/capped air resistance common to speedsters in comics.
